Salah punishes doubters as Liverpool concede for third successive match

Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

Goals: Joel Matip (£5.4m), Mohamed Salah x2 (£12.5m) | Lucas Torreira (£4.9m)

Assists: Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.0m), Fabinho (£5.5m) | Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m)

Bonus Points: Salah x3, Fabinho x2, Matip x1

The familiar story of Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) punishing his doubters came to pass once again as Liverpool beat Arsenal 3-1 on Saturday.

The Egyptian was the most-sold asset ahead of Gameweek 3, losing 398,638 owners in the process, but emerged with a 15-point haul.

Meanwhile, Sadio Mané (£11.5m) who was turned to as a replacement for many who Wildcarded, looked lively against Arsenal but blanked for a three-point score.

Liverpool dominated most of the fixture, registering a total of 25 shots against the Gunners, who have historically struggled to defend well at Anfield.

Salah was at the heart of that, and looked every bit the goal threat at home as he did last season, proving that the blank at Southampton was probably a blip caused by a Super Cup hangover. His remaining 39% ownership had to wait for the fruits of his efforts, both goals coming in the second half, but they were certainly deserved.

His first goal was further evidence of an advantage he has over all other Liverpool attacking assets this season.

Mohamed Salah got the better of David Luiz for both of his goals against Arsenal

Salah was fouled in the box by David Luiz (£6.0m), who pulled his shirt, and won his side the penalty. The Egyptian then stood up to take it, firing a fantastic effort high into the top corner. As had been referenced over the summer, reduced game-time for James Milner (£5.5m) this season, should mean more of these spot-kicks for Salah in 2019/20.

Salah’s second goal came from his brilliance as he skilfully turned past Luiz on the right flank and bore down on goal, placing his effort into the far corner.

The Egyptian now has six goals in five matches against Arsenal, more than against any other Premier League side.

With those Gameweek 2 doubts now allayed once again, Salah’s prospects look good in the coming Gameweeks with Burnley (away), Newcastle (home), Chelsea (away) and Sheffield United (away) his next four opponents.

Sadio Mané was replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the 77th minute against Arsenal

As mentioned previously, Mané was probably unfortunate not to get any attacking returns in this one, considering how dominant Liverpool were going forward.

While he did not shoot as often as Salah, he took on the brunt of creativity in Liverpool’s team.

Meanwhile, Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) was also unfortunate not to come away with any attacking returns against Arsenal, a side he typically does well against.

He was inches away from getting on the end of an Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) cross in the opening minute which would have given Liverpool an early lead.

Roberto Firmino was also unfortunate not to get any attacking returns against Arsenal

Later on, he went close again, this time setting himself up with skill, scooping the ball over Dani Ceballos (£5.6m) and firing a volley at goal – only for it to be blocked.

There was further frustration for most Fantasy managers in possession of Liverpool defensive assets as they went a third Premier League match in a row without a clean sheet this season.

Perhaps this was an encounter in which defensive returns were unlikely though, given the way that Arsenal’s attack had started the season.

Indeed, the Gunners asked more questions than most sides had at Anfield in recent times.

While Liverpool were the side largely in control of this encounter, whenever Arsenal broke on them they looked dangerous.

“To be honest I didn’t expect the system they played. I’m not sure they played it in pre-season, I didn’t see it. It meant we had a lot of space on the wings, switching sides, the only problem was a little bit the movements in the box to make it a bit more tricky for the defending side. They won a lot of these challenges in the air, but we won a lot of second balls for that, putting them constantly under pressure without having the outcome we wanted.” – Jurgen Klopp

Nicolas Pépé (£9.4m) was the main dangerman for Arsenal, also becoming the first man to successfully dribble past Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) in 50 Premier League games.

Nicolas Pepe and Virgil van Dijk was a pulsating contest in Liverpool’s win over Arsenal

He did this six minutes into the match, holding off the Liverpool man and running beyond him towards the opposition penalty box. Were it not for Pépé tripping over the ball, he would have been able to find Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) in space.

11 minutes into the game, Pépé caused problems once more, chasing a ball played to him over the top of the defenders, forcing Adrian (£4.5m) to sally out of goal.

His clearance went straight to Aubameyang who, from outside the box attempted a lob but screwed it just wide.

In the 30th minute, Aubameyang set up Pépé on the edge of the box, who was afforded too much space by Robertson. His curled effort went just wide.

Arsenal’s best chance of the first half came after Jordan Henderson (£5.5m) gave the ball away in the breakdown of a Liverpool set piece.

That left Pépé with only Robertson to beat in order to get one-on-one with Adrian. Unfortunately for Arsenal, the former Lille man’s shot was tame, although Liverpool’s goalkeeper still struggled to keep hold of it.

In the end, Liverpool were beaten in the 85th minute, once it looked as if they had ridden the storm and banked the clean sheet, perhaps making it all the more frustrating.

Substitute Lucas Torreira (£4.9m) was the man to get the goal for Arsenal, firing in from 12 yards after nearly tripping over a square ball from Aubameyang.

“I would have loved to have (the clean sheet), to be honest, but when I see what the boys throw into a game like this, these things can happen. It’s a quality side Arsenal, they never give up, but I didn’t see that many chances. Today we were really in charge.” – Jurgen Klopp

That g ensured blanks for a selection of Liverpool defenders as the inquest into a double-up on this area of their team goes on.

With the in-form Ashley Barnes (£6.6m) the next striker to face the Reds’ back-line, concerns about the team’s clean sheet potential are sure to continue.

“We will have another week of training and then we go to a very difficult place, to Burnley. I couldn’t have more respect for what they are doing there. I will have the opportunity to watch them tomorrow but it will still be different because Burnley at home are another level, so it will be really tricky.” – Jurgen Klopp

Alexander-Arnold was one of two Liverpool defenders to get returns in Gameweek 3

However, we should point out that that least those on Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.0m) got something out of the game.

As expected, his crossing was excellent and his involvement in set-pieces was what led to his second assist of the season. The England international now has nine of them in his last 10 matches at Anfield.

It was not surprising that he was able to chalk another one up against Arsenal, as they had conceded more chances from set-pieces than any other side in the first two Gameweeks.

That’s why van Dijk owners can probably feel somewhat unfortunate to come away with another two-pointer. He was likely the intended target of Alexander-Arnold’s 41st-minute corner but he was fouled by at least two Arsenal players as he leapt to connect with it.

Joel Matip opened the scoring for Liverpool in the first half

This was what allowed Joel Matip (£5.4m) to nod home the opening goal of the match.

“It was a very determined header as well; I don’t know how many people held on Virg in that moment, it looked like they built something around him, but Joel was there – big Joel – and made a fantastic goal. I think it was a deserved result for half-time.” – Jurgen Klopp

Meanwhile, Robertson was also unfortunate not to get something too. As already mentioned, Firmino came close to converting his early cross and it must be said that the Scottish international continues to shoot with greater regularity than he did last season.

    Is it just me or anyone else not too convinced by Barnes?

    He has the stats and the form and after Liverpool he has the fixtures, but somehow feel he will be a troll....

      The only thing I'm not sure on is whether I bring him in this week or next. Jota needs to go

    4 wins from the last 15 for Spurs, that's been kept quiet by the media ...

    1. MTPockets

      5 wins from the last PL 15 for Man Utd. Being kept quiet from FFS

        No way! Really?

    3. Regin

      This year's relegation battle going to be very exciting. All promoted teams have a win. Palace, shampton and Newcastle with unexpected away wins

      1. Guru Mediation
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Newcastle are not in the relegation picture, the only reason people suggest this is the rubbish that their fans spout and the cowardice of the media in not challenging it

      2. Hairy Potter
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Any team that finished in the bottom half last season plus the 3 promoted sides could end up in the relegation mix at the end of the season until they prove otherwise. Some teams have tougher starts than others so it will be clearer by Christmas.

        What's the big fuss/rush for Ceballos? Did anyone watch the game yesterday?

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 5 Years

          They were playing pool away and he's only 5.6

          1. Guru Mediation

            Emery is an idiot, so I wouldn't dismiss yesterday so readily

      6. Giggs Boson.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Wood beat Barnes on pen touches, xG, and shots in the box today.

        Going to have to watch highlights to make sense of this one. I usually like both the stats and the eye to impress before buying a player...

        1. acesingh
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          His overall stats this season though quite decent? Somehow I don’t feel too convinced

          1. Giggs Boson.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Yeah, Barnes has edged him over the season so far. But I'm always hesitant to buy a striker who plays in a pair. But I'll dig deeper and see Barnes entices me. Not feeling him either atm.

        2. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Barnes a better finisher isn’t he?

          1. Giggs Boson.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Seems so. I need to watch him play more, feel quite in the dark. Burnley isn't usually my match of choice to watch...

      7. Atimis

        1 month, 28 days ago

        Jota to Barnes - yah or nah?

        Not willing to take another price swing

          Yes

        West Ham fan on Haller

        "I thought Haller did ok yesterday, without being exceptional.

        Which is to be expected. I think we will see better all round performances from him going forwards.

        I'd also love to see him get in the box more (he comes deep an awful lot) and maybe run in behind more (not sure he has the pace to be effective at that to be fair).

        He is a handful though and will cause teams problems. I'd be pretty pleased if he hits 15 league goals for us."

        1. Drip Doctor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Hardly a glowing endorsement in terms of FPL.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          So avoid. I’m looking at the man in your grav to replace Kane for the time being

            Haller is better fo su

        If Aguero scores a brace or hatty against brighton do you think pep will drop him for norwich?

        Surely 6-7 goals in first 4 games should give him a run of games imo

        1. Drip Doctor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          Pep doesn't rotate as much as people think. Always plays the form players.

          Im very interested in him. Will get a run anyway with Jesus injury.

            Same jesus injury is a game changer.. BHA nor WAT in next 3 looks primed for points

            Had saved money to upgrade martial to kdb.

            But if martial is fit kane to kun for ft looks tempting. Would you do it ?

            1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Martial will be fit.

              And yes I would bring in Kane.

              Got anything on bench?

              1. HurriKane

          Aguero or De Bruyne? If you can only have one.

          1. DVassell
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Aguero on current form- also a great captain option for next gw

            1. komodosam
                1 month, 28 days ago

                True. Could be a big risk not having Aguero now. He could easily score a hattrick.

              Need to know who the other players will be really. KDB + x against Augero + y.

              1. komodosam
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  Kane & Rashford... OR ...Aguero & Barnes

                    1 month, 28 days ago

                    you know the answer to this- based on current form

                    1. komodosam
                        1 month, 28 days ago

                        Yeah. It's gotta be Aguero. Big risk not having him I think. Although, watch Rashford go crazy against Southampton, and Kane score a brace against Arsenal.

                    2. komodosam
                        1 month, 28 days ago

                              Aguero, KDB, and Greenwood ...OR... Aguero, Martial, and Barnes?

                                Transfer done. Kane OUT Aguero IN ... Rashford OUT, Barnes IN.

                        Yeah I’m looking at Maitland-Niles as a long term replacement

                      Does FPL ever completely destroy your mood? Especially on the most depressing night of the week. I try to tell myself it's just a game, but god damn. Saturday was horrific and had some nice salt in the wounds as a Kane(c) and Pope owner today. Any words of advice apart from stop being such a saddo? 🙂

                        Bank Holiday tomorrow and England won the cricket. FPL no more than a minor inconvenience!

                          Bank holiday Monday certainly helps.

                            That's true, at least the cricket was good.

                          If it’s affecting your mood so much in your day to day life then you need to take a step back, it isnt worth obsessing over

                          The best advice is to stop spending time on here, no matter who scored there'll be pages of owners boasting

                          It used to, until I played casually for a few seasons, and was red flagged with illness. Helped me gain some perspective. Now it doesn't affect me in the slightest.

                          Remember it's only a game, and it's not worth playing if it's making you unhappy.

                          Might sound like a rubbish idea, but I tend to find doing some heavy analysis of the underlying stats to see why your team got a low score really helps. Then you can either see where you went wrong and learn from it or you might notice that a players underlying stats prove promising despite their shortcomings over a single gameweek.
                          Puts you in a position of more control instead of just feeling like the FPL world is against you

                          When it goes wrong, try remind yourself you still picked the right choice. Kane(c) didnt work out but is definitely still the sensible choice. Football is random at the end of the day!

                          Yep. ruined my evening. I had triple Spurs attack ahead of a home game against the so far worst team in the league. All players plat 90 minutes and I somehow come out of it with just 6 points. Pathetic. I dont care if its something expected but when its something so obviously unlucky like this its just a huge downer.

                          Makes me want to quit FPL

                          Stay away from the game for 2-3 days. Watch a movie. Listen to music. Do something or the other , go into the nature, watch a sunset.

                          Spent some time with family and friends .

                          And yes , stay away from FFS.

                          Some pretty great advice in here. I honestly was expecting 90% Kane jokes.

                          Thanks all, just needed some perspective. Gonna try and leave FPL alone for a few days.

                          It’s a long season. Anyone that says they don’t have FPL ups and downs is a liar.
                          Remember it’s only a game.

                          Nailed lone striker. Probably OK for his price.

                        Need to get in more City players ASAP, I'll probably wildcard during the international break.. Which one of the following would you recommend for -4?

                        A) Kane -> Aguero and VVD -> Zinchenko
                        B) Kane -> Aguero and TAA -> Walker

                          Zinchenko owner here, but be wary, murmurs mendy is back soon, cancelo can also play at lb, so after the international break looking quite uncertain, laporte is nailed if u can afford

                        could do: Dendonker > Cantwell

                        leaves me exact money for king to barnes the following week but price changes will likely screw me before hand...

                            73 pts after Sterling’s bps. But it was close to be hurt for not having Kane. August is not his month simply.

                              Tried to outsmart everyone and ended up outsmarting myself lol. Should have gone with Salah/Sterling captain. Never again, Kane is gone for Haller, Wesley or Wilson. Probably Haller.

                          Jota is awful pick. But I already used my FT. Don’t know what to do.
                          Jota to Barnes for a hit is madness?
                          If Martial is fit..

                            Barnes has Liverpool but yeah Jota is cack

                          Any reason not to shift Auba to Aguero tonight?

                            He'll probably score against Spuds!

                          I just knee jerked Kane+Ceballos->Cantwell+Kun and it feels ruddy good

                          Who else is joining?
