Salah still searching for first away goal as Sheff Utd frustrate Liverpool

Sheffield United 0-1 Liverpool

Goals: Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.4m)

Assists: None

Bonus Points: Joel Matip (£5.5m) x 3, Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) x 2, Wijnaldum x 1

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) is still searching for his first away goal of the Premier League season as Liverpool were frustrated by a determined Sheffield United side on Saturday afternoon.

The Reds maintained their 100% winning start to the campaign, courtesy of a Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.4m) goal but they really owed their win to Blades goalkeeper Dean Henderson (£4.5m).

He had shaped to make a routine stop from Wijnaldum’s shot but somehow the ball squirmed underneath him and across the line – a cruel way for Sheffield United to lose a game they probably deserved something from.

Salah is still waiting for his first away goal of the Premier League season

Sadio Mané (£11.6m) frustrated his 21.4% ownership with two golden opportunities in the first half, both of which he missed.

The first saw the Senegalese international put clean through on goal with just Henderson to beat, but he fluffed his lines and sliced his shot over the crossbar.

The next chance saw some rare insightful penetration and drive from Liverpool’s frontline, as Roberto Firmino (£9.6m) selflessly laid off a perfectly weighted pass – but Mané’s shot cannoned back off the post.

After Henderson’s blunder, he made up for things by producing an excellent stop to deny Salah who was one-on-one with the goalkeeper and arguably should have scored.

Mané was particularly wasteful in the first half

As the debate over which Liverpool attacking to own continues to drag on for Fantasy managers, Saturday’s performance was a timely reminder that both Salah and Mané are liable to performances that are lacking a clinical cutting edge. 

For those managers who had captained Salah, (nobody was issued with more armbands than Gameweek 7 than him), this was a disappointing return from the Egyptian who has now scored just one goal in his last four Premier League fixtures.

Furthermore, he remains goalless away from home, all but two of his seven attacking returns this season taking place at Anfield.

The Salah vs Mané debate is proving tricky for Fantasy managers

Mané has previously looked more reliable on the road, with 21 points scored across trips to Southampton and Burnley. However, he is without an attacking return away from home since that Gameweek 4 goal at Turf Moor.

Of course, we have to give credit to Sheffield United who certainly made life very hard work for Liverpool. The Reds were unable to fashion too many clearcut chances in the opening period as they struggled to get to grips with Chris Wilder’s 3-5-2 system.

Klopp’s side emerged for the second half with some more enthusiasm and, temporarily, with an altered tactical system. Fabinho (£5.5m) dropped back to form a defensive trio with Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) and Joel Matip (£5.5m), while Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m) and Andy Robertson (£6.9m) moved into extremely attacking positions on alternative wings for a short spell, before reverting to their natural flanks. 

Liverpool can thank Dean Henderson for his error which led to their only goal of the game

Yet despite Klopp’s evident intentions to attack the Blades through the wide areas, it was the unlikely hero in Wijnaldum who struck a shot that the Blades’ keeper Henderson ultimately should have saved. 

For owners of Liverpool’s uncharacteristically inconsistent defence, this was an important result for managers who have retained the faith in their assets. Despite becoming recognised as clean-sheet powerhouses in the 2018/19 season, so far in the current Premier League campaign, Klopp’s side has been unable to replicate that same level of defensive consistency. 

However, owners of the still-popular Alexander-Arnold and Robertson, this was an important game in keeping their defensive returns ticking over, although it was the centre-backs who emerged with the bonus points.

As mentioned, it was a largely frustrating afternoon for the Reds who were certainly not at their best but huge credit must go to Sheffield United for their fearless performance that did not deserve defeat. 

The Blades could have been understandably overwhelmed by the visit of the reigning champions of Europe, yet Wilder’s side refused to bow to the pressure that Jurgen Klopp’s side attempted to conjure up. 

Mostly focussed down Alexander-Arnold’s flank, the attacking duo of Callum Robinson (£5.3) and Oli McBurnie (£5.9) tested Liverpool’s backlin with the former’s well-hit shot drifting wide of Adrian’s (£4.6) far post.

Callum Robinson was substituted 11 seconds before he would earned two extra points for playing the hour and keeping a clean sheet

John Lundstram (£4.4m), the club’s highest points scorer in 2019/20, came close after a terrific mazy run from John Fleck (£4.8m), but Wilder’s side were unable to score despite the number of promising opportunities they created throughout the match. 

For Wilder, despite the result, this was a performance that epitomised the project he is attempting to build at the club in their pursuit of Premier League survival.

His side battled with unerring confidence to frustrate Liverpool, and managers considering investing in the likes of Lundstram or budget defenders such as John Egan (£4.5m) and Chris Basham (£4.5m) would be pleased to see such a defensively rigid performance from the Blades. 

Henderson came off in the second half after getting hurt earlier in the game – but Klopp confirmed there was no injury

Finally, there were some concerns that Jordan Henderson (£5.4m) suffered an injury in the game as he was replaced by Divock Origi (£5.3m) in the 64th minute.

Klopp confirmed after the match that the substitution was purely a tactical one to change the shape of the attack. With Firmino retaining the centre-forward role, he pulled Salah into a central number 10 position with Origi and Mané manning the flanks.

“No, it was an offensive change. We had the opportunity – either Hendo or Gini, both worked hard, for both it was not an easy game today. Obviously, we made the right decision, Gini stayed on the pitch and scored! We wanted to change our approach, so we could have then Bobby finally between the lines but still an option in behind with Mo. We needed to defend the wings properly because they are there constantly, that’s why we needed first Sadio and then Milly on that [right] wing. Div made a proper impact when he came on, it was really helpful that we could pass the ball there [for] the one-on-one situations and I think he crossed the ball before the goal as well. So, that was the reason.” – Jurgen Klopp

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Henderson; O’Connell, Egan, Basham, Stevens, Baldock, Lundstram; Norwood (Clarke 77’) Fleck, Robinson (Mousset 60’); McBurnie.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson (Origi 64’); Mane (Oxlade-Chamberlain 90+4’), Salah, Firmino (Milner 87’)

      How is your current team a mess.

      Selling salah frees up a lot of cash like selling your house and moving in to a cardboard box does.

      Ye that midfield isn’t pretty

      Gendo -> Mount this week seems like a good start

      Aurieir to Tomori save 1m and upgrade Guend and you'll be good.

    Righto, who's with me? Three Man City mids. I trade in Mane for Mahrez then have an extra $3M to play with for someone exciting up front...maybe Firm.

    The problem I have with that is that Pep still doesn't seem to give a rats about my fantasy team standings the selfish git.

    1. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Mahrez has looked excellent to me this season.

      I just think it’s too much rotation risk as if you triple up it’s conceivable 2+ of them get rested in a week.

      With sterling /KDB/ Aguero hard tp see how any more than 1 of those misses out each week

    2. The Mighty Hippo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      It's not the worst idea in the world, especially if you've got decent bench cover when Mahrez or one of the others doesn't play (I assume the other two being KDB and Sterling).

      Who do you have upfront that you'd upgrade to Firmino?

      1. Any Laporte in a Storm
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        I got Tammy, Haller and Pukki. I'd upgrade Pukki.

        Yeah, patience is my watchword this season. For so many years I've been ill-disciplined and have a very itchy trigger finger on transfers. I would make that move to Mahrez if I didn't care but much but it would do my head in when I saw him on the bench. I need to wait and see what Pep has planned for him this year. He's working his way onto the team sheet though which is a good start.

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      it would be fine if you didnt come back in a weeks time asking if you should sell mahrez when hes benched, which is what everyone who brought in bilva and dilva did

    4. AndyCook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      It’s ten minute one pointers and the fear you don’t get a good captain playing that’s the problem potentially

    I'm hoping for a Vardy Party today.

    1. FPL Bloody Hell !!!!

      1-0 tielemans winner 🙂

    2. Carlton_Goal
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      As long as they get the clean sheet for Soyuncu too 🙂

    3. Ljungberg
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      +1

  5. Carlton_Goal
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Torn between two different options for getting rid of Digne

    A) Digne > Otamendi
    B) Digne + Dendoncker > Tomori/Ward/Dunk + Hudson-Odoi/Yarmolenko

    Rest of defence is TAA, Masuaku, Soyuncu, Lundstram
    Rest of midfield is Salah, Sterling, KDB, Cantwell

    Looking to play 3-4-3 most weeks

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      ota is less of a punt and better value than yarmo, cho isnt remotely nailed (yet)

      1. Carlton_Goal
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Yeah CHO would more be a differential punt trying to get him in before he hits form. Otamendi would seem the sensible option but I'm starting to feel uneasy about starting Cantwell every week (although he is still great value for his price)

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 11 days ago

          city next 4 are unmissable

          1. Carlton_Goal
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            Yeah you're right. Cheers for talking some sense into me 🙂 Otamendi it is

        2. POLSKA GOLA
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Cantwell (and all Norwich assets including Pukki) are excellent for home games but benchable for away fixtures. Still consider them great value however Cantwell may be making way in my team for someone like McGinn at some point depending on fixtures

    2. Bun Rab L4D3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      A but only because you want to play 4 in MF and you have 4 solid starters.

      1. Carlton_Goal
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Cheers, Cantwell being a solid starter is the part I'm starting to have doubts about.

        1. Bun Rab L4D3
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          3 returns in 7 is still good returns for 4.5/5m mid. No one in that price range is even close.

    3. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Hard to look past Otamendi, depending on your team steucture but Digne to Otamendi seams the most sensible transfer, no need to overcomplicate with multiple transfers

  7. Christina.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    Who are WC's targeting?

    Has to be Auba, Son and Kane I reckon.
    Yarmolenko as well.

    1. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Hard to get them in at expense of city and pool though

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        you have to do something to gain ground.

    2. Hakim Ziyech

      McGovern

    3. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Not on WC but thinking about 3 of those myself plus Vardy and Wilson.

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Wilson is another I like.

        1. POLSKA GOLA
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          I think Wilson better value than the other three unless captaining

    4. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I reckon those players are in relatively few people who are wildcardings plans.

      Which is interesting as they should be!

      But trouble is city and Chelsea fixtures are excellent too.

      I’m considering WC over IB so would be interested in what you think a WC team now should look like.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    6. Bun Rab L4D3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I'm steering well clear of Kane. Auba, Son and Yarm are all options. I'd be looking at Leicester and Chelsea too. Other than that, the norm. Lots of City. TAA and maybe a Pool attacker, McGinn, Pukki and Lunds.

    8. Would Ed Woodward
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Probably Wilson, Vardy and maybe Maddison when I use it over IB.

      yes, spurs look amazing right now

    Does anyone have the link to the top 10k statistics?

        I have 8/10 top 10k EO players. Hard to see how I’m going to make any ground on them with Tomori over VVD and Greenwood over Aguero being my only differentials right now lol

  9. Lev Yashin
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    VvD + Iwobi -> TAA + Yarm or Tielemans?

    1. Bun Rab L4D3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Prefer Yarm if he stays fit.

  10. FleckyT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    Aurier replacement?

    A) Cresswell
    B) Tomori

    1. CelticBhoy1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      B

    2. Bun Rab L4D3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      B only as i'm not sure how long Cresswell will keep his place.

    3. Carlton_Goal
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      B, Cresswell will likely be rotated at some point

    Anyone considering Mahrez?

    1. Bun Rab L4D3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Would love to but just don't trust Pep to play him every week. Great price if he claims a league place.

  12. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Pope
    Digne TAA Otamendi
    Cantwell Salah Sterling KDB Mount
    Abraham Pukki
    Heaton/Lundstram/Greenwood/Rico (1.1itb, 1ft)

    Tempted to save, but then it feels like post-gw8 will suit a wildcard (still have it). Any thoughts?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      no need to wc if you roll this week

      1. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        I'd probably be doing Digne to Tomori/Soyuncu and Cantwell to Maddison if I keep the 2ft for gw9

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 11 days ago

          unless you desperately want auba in for salah i think thats sensible

          1. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            I'd certainly pick him up on WC, will look at it.
            I'm also tempted with Pukki to Wilson or Vardy (after gw8).

            1. EMBOLOFAN
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 11 days ago

              pukki doesnt need to score many to be better value then those 2

    2. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      If you did Digne to Tomori we’d have identical teams lol

  13. The Train Driver
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Never kept my WC for this long, feels weird...

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      its a big advantage imo

      1. TheDragon
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 11 days ago

        When to use it is the question

        I’ve still got mine but in hindsight I’d be 50+ points better off if I’d used it in week 3/4

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 11 days ago

          there’s a bit of a fixture turn around gw15, i’ll probably deadend my team into that

          1. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            What swings are you eyeing up?

    2. Any Laporte in a Storm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      That's amazing. I'd be breaking out in something.

  14. Lucky Z
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Pope
    TAA Otamendi Digne Pieters
    Sterling KDB Son James
    Pukki Abraham

    Button Ayew Guendouzi Lundstram

    How to improve this with 2.9 ITB and 1FT? No Salah/Mane until GW13

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      id want 2 premiums

      1. Lucky Z
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Want Auba. Like James Digne Ayew => Hayden Diop Auba

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 11 days ago

          makes sense but not sure diops best option

  15. No Professionals
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    11 people have transferred in alexis Sanchez for next week. Maverick.

    1. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      He’s due

    2. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Bandwagon alert.

    3. Bun Rab L4D3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      He did score... and get sent off.

    4. AndyCook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      He’s suspended in the league too

    5. Dare Do The Punt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      That is a level below even 'casual' level

    6. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years

      Must be bots

    I notice that a lot of people in my ML have wildcarded this week, but I want to keep mine till a bit later if possible. Rolling with triple City attack until GW 13 then bringing in 'pool assets seems a reasonable approach, right?

    1. Bun Rab L4D3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Yeah. If you haven't used WC yet then no rush. I think City and 'Pool attackers are all season long players though.

  17. Nightcrawler
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Vardy to punish non owners today?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      probably but then he plays liverpool so its fine

    2. Dare Do The Punt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I personally think it depends on whether Madison starts or not

  18. Dare Do The Punt
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Hi guys, I went a bit maverick on my WC two weeks ago without including any Liverpool attack and including the likes of Wilson and Auba instead.

    Currently on 69 points this GW and don't want to fall into the trap that I can get away without a Liverpool attacker.

    Do I continue playing 'my own game' and see how long I can milk the no Liverpool attack?

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Yes, seems good strategy to gain ground if you have good Captain for each week.
      69 points this week is a big green arrow surely

  19. No Professionals
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Pope
    VVD Otamendi Digne 
    Salah KDB Mount McGinn 
    Aguero Pukki Abraham 

    Button Cantwell Lundstram Kelly 

    1ft 0.4itb, wildcard used, no hits taken.

    Do I need to do something a bit different with this? Any ideas?

  20. Dare Do The Punt
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    If Bernardo does get his ban then Mahrez could be the best value player in the game surely?

  21. Mintu
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Please can anyone know why Dele Ali not starting premiere league? Is it for long term injury return or any other issue.

  22. collox1
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Newbie, need help! Only on 332pts and have used my wildcard. Have 2 transfers, could do 3...thoughts?
