How has Firmino compared to Salah and Mané so far this season?

Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) has made a strong start to the season with two goals and two assists in the first four Gameweeks.

That has made for a total of 27 points, two more than colleague Sadio Mané (£11.5m) and nine short of Mohamed Salah (£12.5m).

Such a score after four matches is made all the more impressive when we consider that Firmino is now by far the cheapest attacking option in Liverpool’s FPL ranks.

The Brazilian represents a £3.0m saving compared to Salah, and can also offer £2.0m in cash compared to Mané.

Despite his potential value, he currently sits in just 11.7% of teams while Mané is owned by 18.9% and Salah 42.9%.

With that in mind, we have assessed whether more Fantasy managers should turn to Firmino from Gameweek 5 onwards.

    Thoughts on VVD to TAA if nothing pressing?
    Can also do Zinc to TAA but it restricts squad strength/bench going forward

      yes if you have 2ft, if on 1 ft i'd save

        1ft. But TAA rise would limit some future options, like Den to Ceballos.

        This. Unless you’re going to lose an FT I would just save.

    Hello all, constantly changing my wildcard team around and here is something that I have come up with, I like this team a lot, few punts in Son and Ceballos. Feel like Spurs and Arsenal have good fixtures and are about to explode. Thoughts?

    Pope
    TAA / Digne / Otamendi
    Sterling / Mane / Son / James / Ceballos
    Abraham / Haller

    Button / Lowton / Lund / Ayew

    1. TokyoRisingSun
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      16 days, 11 hours ago

      I like it a lot. It’s different enough from the usual templates we see but you’ve got enough solid players to back up your differentials.

    2. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
      • 2 Years
      16 days, 11 hours ago

      Seems like punty wildcard excluding Salah & KDB ,could work though.

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      16 days, 11 hours ago

      Like it a lot

      I’d be tempted to KdB Vardy over Sterling Tammy if that adds up - think it does. Think they’re the best two value premiums in the game. You’d need to be happy captaining KdB

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        16 days, 11 hours ago

        Looks strange perhaps but held for a while I’d have KdB Vardy scoring better than Sterling Tammy

  3. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
    • 2 Years
    16 days, 11 hours ago

    Suggest me the best one:

    A)KWP(hold) + James
    Or,
    B)Iwobi + otamendi (-4)

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

    2. Wakanda 4ever
      • 2 Years
      16 days, 11 hours ago

      I transferred out KWP for Tarkowski.

      Digne / Otamendi / Alderweireld / Lowton (Soyuncu)
      Martial / De Bruyne / Sterling (Hayden, Guendozi)

      I have 1m in the bank. Thinking of going De Bruyne to Son and Kane to Aguero, thoughts?

        kdB is the one City asset I’d want most - still great value at 9.8.

        1. james 101
          • 7 Years
          16 days, 11 hours ago

          I have kun sterling and kdb

          Really don’t want to lose any of them.

          I’d love to have dilva too!

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            16 days, 11 hours ago

            Pondering a Sterling to Dilva move down the line as a half possible - 5 mill or so goes a looooong way - don’t especially mind the occasional benching

            Sterling McGinn
            Dilva Son and a fair bit of change

            Son would need to be firing for me to come close to jumping on it mind

      3. Bojos Brexit Boys
          16 days, 10 hours ago

          Same Front 3 as me, your team is looking good, no need to change. Kane and Sterling Can swap captaincy for the next plenty gameweeks perfectly

        Ryan (button)
        Coleman Robbo Lund (Cathcart Diop)
        Salah Sterling McGinn Martial* Trossard*
        Pukki Kane (Greenwood)

        Not loving my defence, want KdB but have money tied up in Kane, Injury concerns with Martial and Trossard

        help needed

          Kane and Martial to KDB and Haller? (Not checked if that's possible price wise)

            thanks. Get rid of Kane before CRY though?

              16 days, 11 hours ago

              Check out Palace away record! The Spurs game is generally a tight one - a 2-1 sort of affair.

              Given the choice I’d be on Auba not Kane this week.

              I’d look at Vardy KdB from Kane Martial as an option. Though Haller is also a good call.

        WC team, any opinion ?
        Pope - Button
        TAA - Zinchenko - Soyuncu - Engels - Lundstram
        Salah - Sterling - KDB - Mcginn - James
        Pukki - Haller - Ayew

        1. Link
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          16 days, 11 hours ago

          I'd be very tempted to turn Zinc into Digne by downgrading Ayew assuming you plan to bench him every week

      6. Davros
        • 10 Years
        16 days, 11 hours ago

        On a WC and trying to decide between
        A) Vardy and Pieters
        B) Haller and Digne

        Same price...

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          B. Think Digne is a must

          1. Davros
            • 10 Years
            16 days, 11 hours ago

            Cheers this is what I’m on at the mo. Might switch to Vardy after next two fixtures...

        3. footballfreak
            16 days, 11 hours ago

            B

        4. Link
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          16 days, 11 hours ago

          Heaton
          Trent, Digne, Zinc, Zouma (4)
          Salah, Raz, KDB, Ceballos (Donk)
          Rashford, Pukki (4.5)

          A. Zouma to Tark/Lowton
          B. Rashford to Haller/Barnes
          C. -4 for both with a possibility of Vardy

          (Currently thinking A but it's a bit boring)

          1. Davros
            • 10 Years
            16 days, 11 hours ago

            Depends what you would do with money from B. On face of it, MU has nice fixtures so you could lose out.
            Personally, I don’t think he’s worth the money yet, especially as he’s not on pens. Would prefer Barnes/Haller and upgrade elsewhere

            1. Link
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              16 days, 11 hours ago

              I imagine the money saved would go on either upgrading Ceballos or moving to a 343 eventually. Should no more over next 2 weeks of Ceb will be a regular starter (and good pick)

        5. BARIO MALOTELLI
            16 days, 11 hours ago

            Would you transfer out Zaha? And which replacemant if yes ? Thanks

              Feels like you can't have Salah+Aguero/Sterling+KDB and another premium

              So if on a WC who would *you* drop to accommodate someone like Pepe/Son/Vardy to try and get ahead?

              Best 4.0 defender?

              1. Goonerly
                • 1 Year
                16 days, 11 hours ago

                Might be Hanley at this point.

            5. Goonerly
              • 1 Year
              16 days, 11 hours ago

              Is a Liverpool defensive double-up with Van Dijk and Matip a bad idea?
              Other option is getting Ota, but feel like Pool will get a CS against Newcastle while Norwich might score, at home, against a City defence made up of Stones & Ota.

              Any thoughts?

            6. Here Comes The Son ★
              • 2 Years
              16 days, 11 hours ago

              10 goals in 59 apps for Schar. (Club & Country)

              I know he's probably too expensive for a Newcastle defender, but those are impressive stats for a defender. Might end up punting on him when Newcastle's fixture's get good.

            7. Bojos Brexit Boys
                16 days, 10 hours ago

                RMT

                Pickford (button)

                TAA Stones Walker Keane (kelly)
                Sterling Maddison Mount Barkley (cantwell)
                Kane Abraham Wilson

                All English.

                Vardy on the radar after next few fixtures, also looking at burley duo tark & pope

                No free transfers, wildacard used and 16 points burned already (oops)

                Laporte out

                Who to get? Stones or Otamendi? Or Walker?
                Digne is an option too.
