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

        5 months, 25 days ago

        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
      5 months, 25 days 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
      5 months, 25 days ago

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

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 25 days 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
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 25 days 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
    5 months, 25 days ago

    Suggest me the best one:

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

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 25 days ago

      A

    2. Wakanda 4ever
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 25 days ago

      I transferred out KWP for Tarkowski.

    Best option here? Or any other suggestions? 1 FT, 0 ITB. Thanks.

    A) AWB > Matip/Maitland Niles
    B) AWB & Jota > Guilbert & Haller (-4)
    C) AWB & Jota > Maitland Niles & Barnes (-4)

    Pope - Button
    AWB - VVD - Digne - Zinchenko - Lundstram
    Sterling - KDB - Salah - Martial - Dendocker

    RMT WC
    Adrian / Button - Adrian to Pope GW 6
    Digne / Otamendi / Alderweireld / Lowton (Soyuncu)
    Martial / De Bruyne / Sterling (Hayden, Guendozi)
    Abraham / Kane / Wilson

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

    1. dbeck

      I dont like booking in transfers, just get pope in now.

    2. pingissimus

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

      1. james 101
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 25 days 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
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 25 days 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
        5 months, 25 days 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

      • Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 25 days ago

        KdB out haha. Good luck with that!

    4. cnewman7
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 25 days ago

      What to do here? 2FTs 0.2 ITB

      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

      1. Link
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 25 days ago

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

        1. Davros
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 25 days ago

          This if poss

        2. cnewman7
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 25 days ago

          thanks. Get rid of Kane before CRY though?

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 25 days 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.

    5. Cheshire Duck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 25 days ago

      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
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 25 days 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
      5 months, 25 days ago

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

      Same price...

      1. Hot Toddy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 25 days ago

        B

      2. Link
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 25 days ago

        B. Think Digne is a must

        1. Davros
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 25 days ago

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

      3. footballfreak
          5 months, 25 days ago

          B

      4. Link
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 25 days 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
          5 months, 25 days 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
            • 9 Years
            5 months, 25 days 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
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 25 days ago

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

        1. BARIO MALOTELLI
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 25 days ago

          I have 1ft

      6. Chris_H
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 25 days ago

        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?

      7. New Post
      8. BigBillyBass

        Best 4.0 defender?

        1. Goonerly
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 25 days ago

          Might be Hanley at this point.

      9. Goonerly
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 25 days 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?

      10. Here Comes The Son ★
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 25 days 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.

      11. Bojos Brexit Boys
          5 months, 25 days 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)

        • SidL
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 25 days ago

          Laporte out

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