Well-timed goals for Salah and Mané as FPL bosses consider double-up

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City

Goals: Fabinho (£5.5m), Mohamed Salah (£12.3m), Sadio Mané (£12.0m) | Bernardo Silva (£7.9m)

Assists: Andrew Robertson (£7.0m), Jordan Henderson (£5.4m)

Bonus Points: B Silva x3, Fabinho x2, Salah x1

Liverpool attacking assets went a long way to justifying a double-up in the coming weeks as they punished Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

Despite losing 137,239 owners ahead of Gameweek 12, it was Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) who arguably looked the most dangerous at Anfield.

He added Liverpool’s second in the first half with a well-placed header following an Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) cross.

Salah looked very dangerous for Liverpool in Gameweek 12

“The second goal we scored, I don’t think I ever saw a goal like this. Probably not. A right full-back with a 60-yard pass to the left full-back; two more touches and a cross over 40 yards, 50, and a header. That’s pretty special. It was a good moment to score a goal like this.” – Jurgen Klopp

Now with two goals in as many home matches, perhaps we should not be too surprised that Salah found the net in such a big fixture.

As we reported in the Members-only section of our most recent Captain Sensible article, the Egyptian went into Gameweek 12 joint-top of the league for shots on target in the previous four rounds, despite registering only 238 minutes in during that time. That suggests that when he gets back to playing week-in, week-out, he can offer serious goal threat once again.

Mané’s second-half goal kept up the pressure on Salah owners

Sadio Mané (£12.0m) also kept up the pressure on Salah owners though as he added his 11th attacking return of the campaign, and his sixth in the last five matches.

“The third goal very, very good as well, a sensational cross and Sadio in the right position.” – Jurgen Klopp

It means that only Jamie Vardy (£9.5m) has scored more Fantasy points after 12 Gameweeks than Mané, the Senegalese international just nine off the current leader’s total (92).

Crucially, he remains ahead of Salah despite the Egyptian managing one more point than him against Manchester City.

The gap currently stands at 11 points and is widened further when we look at points per start for the two players.

Salah has averaged 6.5 points per game in matches that he has started this season while Mané’s figure here is 7.5 points per game.

It is also worth mentioning that Mané has somewhat shirked off one of his detrimental factors from last season. Just five of his 25 attacking returns came away from home in 2018/19.

The Salah vs Mané debate could come to an end if managers consider owning both for Liverpool’s upcoming fixtures

Fast-forward to Gameweek 12 of 2019/20 and, of his 11 goal involvements so far, five of them have come on the road and six at Anfield – a much more even spread.

Also troubling Salah owners currently is an ongoing issue with his ankle, injured against Leicester in Gameweek 8. While it is not hurt badly enough for him to miss matches, Klopp has been managing the knock. That’s probably why Salah has not completed 90 minutes the Premier League since that Leicester match.

Against Manchester City, there was a moment in the first half where it looked like Salah might have to come off as the ankle in question was rolled by a tackle. However, he was able to continue until the 86th minute when he was replaced by Joe Gomez (£5.1m). That substitution did seem largely tactical in nature though as Manchester City were staging a late surge.

“After they scored for 3-1 they had momentum and we had heavy legs. We tried to change it a little bit; we actually changed at half-time to 4-4-1-1, and changed back late in the game to 4-5-1.” – Jurgen Klopp

Meanwhile, the international break should help Salah get some much-needed rest for the ankle.

Fantasy managers have been debating the merits of Salah vs Mané ever since the start of last season but, with both players showing statistical form and passing the eye test in recent weeks, the prospect of owning both of them is potentially a viable strategy in the upcoming weeks with some appealing home fixtures (Brighton, Everton and Watford) before their blank in Gameweek 18.

Manchester City’s defence was really poor against Liverpool

However, (dare we say this?) it could be argued that Liverpool’s attacking display was greatly helped by a dreadful defensive outing from Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s men came to Anfield without first-choice goalkeeper Ederson (£6.1m), who was injured in the Champions League and are, of course, still short one Aymeric Laporte (£6.3m).

However, the Citizens’ manager made the bizarre decision not to use Benjamin Mendy (£5.9m) at left-back and left Joao Cancelo (£5.3m) on the bench.

“Mendy after two seasons injured, when he plays a game… yesterday he couldn’t train. He’s not injured now, he goes with the national team.” – Pep Guardiola

Angeliño (£4.7m) did offer some threat going forward but he was left very exposed to Salah for most of the game and allowed the Egyptian far too much space to work in.

Stones and Fernandinho were often left exposed at centre-back

Guardiola’s team opted to try and defend by holding possession in the Liverpool half but whenever they lost the ball, Liverpool punished them. That’s why they found themselves 2-0 down after 13 minutes despite looking the so-called better team up until that point.

Fernandinho (£5.2m) and John Stones (£5.3m) were named at centre-back and, with both players largely known for their ability on the ball rather than defensive capabilities, were left very exposed to the Liverpool counter.

Again, we probably shouldn’t be too surprised to see Manchester City’s defence suffer on the road once again. In the Members-only section of last week’s Captain Sensible article, we reported that in the four previous away matches to this one, the reigning champions had the seventh-worst expected goals conceded (xGC) in the league, recorded against relatively goal-shy opposition in Crystal Palace, Everton, Norwich and Bournemouth. With that in mind, it seemed inevitable that Liverpool attackers would enjoy a profitable outing against them.

The question now to ask is whether Salah and Mané will have the same joy away to Crystal Palace in Gameweek 13? Perhaps not. Only Leicester (three), Newcastle (four) and Sheffield United (four) have conceded fewer goals at home this season than the Eagles (five).

Robertson has outperformed Alexander-Arnold in recent weeks

The greater interest for the trip to Selhurst Park may well be in Liverpool’s defensive assets rather than their attacking ones, with the Eagles joint-bottom of the league for goals at home this season (four).

Despite greater interest in Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m) this season, it is Robertson who goes into Gameweek 13 in the better form.

He provided the assist for Salah’s goal against Manchester City and now has three of his last four outings. In that time, his colleague on the right-hand side of defence has just one.

From Gameweek 7 onwards Robertson has averaged 5.3 points per game while Alexander-Arnold has managed just 3.5 points per game in that time.

Alexander-Arnold has disappointed his owners of late

It seems to be the lack of clean sheets that is causing the main problem for the right-back as Liverpool still have just two this season and none at Anfield.

Despite standing up particularly well to Manchester City on Sunday afternoon, Bernardo Silva (£7.9m) pounced on a deflected cross to deny a first home shut-out of the campaign. Relegation-threatened Norwich and Southampton are the only two sides without one so far.

That leaves a tough decision awaiting Fantasy managers going for a triple-up on Liverpool options. Gameweek 13 looks a better prospect for the defence given Palace’s home record, while subsequent home matches seem more likely to favour the attackers.

As for Manchester City’s forward players, there is certainly mounting pressure on the large number of managers in possession of them.

Aguero’s Anfield hoodoo goes on as he failed to score there once again on Sunday

Kevin de Bruyne (£10.2m) remains the most popular, still sat in 40.1% of teams but he has just one attacking return since Gameweek 8.

Arguably, the Belgian was unlucky not to come away from Anfield with something as his delivery from corners, free-kicks and open play was still excellent – his colleagues just couldn’t get on the end of them.

Sergio Aguero (£12.0m) was particularly out-of-character on Sunday afternoon as he failed to make a connection with a number of well-placed balls into the box.

That said, he has never scored at Anfield in the entirety of his professional career and has now gone 782 minutes without a goal there. It’s a truly staggering statistic for a player with such strong goal-scoring pedigree but perhaps shows the power of Anfield.

Sterling was by far Man City’s most dangerous player at Anfield

It was a mixed afternoon for Raheem Sterling (£12.0m) owners. He was arguably Manchester City’s most dangerous player and was perhaps unfortunate not to get something against his former employers.

With many Fantasy managers considering the Liverpool attacking double-up, Sterling could be the fall-guy. Had he picked up a fifth yellow card of the season at Anfield, then many would have been further pushed into that move.

As things stand, it could be worth giving him, and indeed de Bruyne, at least one more week. Chelsea come to the Etihad Stadium in Gameweek 13, still without a clean sheet on the road this season. They have been breached a total of 12 times on the road, only Aston Villa (13), Watford (13) and Newcastle (14) shipping more in such matches thus far.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson, van Dijk, Lovren, Alexander-Arnold; Wijnaldum, Fabinho, J Henderson (Milner 61′); Mané, Firmino (Oxlade-Chamberlain 79′), Salah (Gomez 87′).

Manchester City XI (4-2-3-1): Bravo; Angeliño, Fernandinho, Stones, Walker; Gündogan, Rodri; Sterling, de Bruyne, B Silva; Aguero (Gabriel 71′).

    Jiminez vs Pulisic

        Jimi the main at wolves, pulisic more likely to be rotated when his form dips...

        1. FOO FIGHTER

            Will Pulisic's form dip.

            Jimenez is a safe option if you want a one goal haul here and there. Pulisic has shown that he can be very explosive.

          I want to go for Pulisic over Jimenez but the 0.1 difference impacts my bench players and GK

          Pulisic + Pope + Greenwood vs Jimenez + Henderson + Dendoncker

            Anticipating City/Chelsea to be an open goalfest.

            Another blank from Sterling and he's gone for Salah.

              he will get 2G 1A and a yellow card and be sold for Salah anyway 😛

              Feeling the problem of having two Pool now. Playing 343 and just one slot for one of Soy/Lund(Rico far behind the order) is a benching headache. This week, Soy on bench burnt very well.

                  don't worry - you'll need that bench over the next 2 months and be glad for it.
                  also wk18 no Liverpool building that bench is pretty key unless you want to blow the FH chip

                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 4 days ago

                    Soy, Lund, another Sheffield, Rico, another sub 5.0 might do.
                    Could use the fund to upgrade KdB to Salah to complement Mane, Mount to Pulisic/Martial. Maddy stays.

                      Lund, Soy, Tomori, another Sheffield, Rico. That would do I guess.

                          Salah played 86 minutes this weekend. That article probably is just a message to tell Egypt to send him home.

                              Would you drop tielmans or mount to get jimmenez? Vs saying using cash to upgrade to pulisic?

                              Would you rather:

                              A) Salah + Dendo, plays 442
                              B) Son + Martial/Maddison, plays 352

                              Option B is why I cant justify a double up on LIV midfielders, and the plethora of cheap defenders makes double LIV defenders kind of useless. Probably going with only 2 LIV for the forseeable future

                                Anyone worried about Sheffield v United? They don't have Henderson who's been brilliant for them. Granted they'll probably park their bus even more but still worried about my probably double up of Lundy and Stevens.

                                  I'll be flabbergasted if MUN keeps a cs on the road. Plus MUN has only scored five goals on the road.

                                    Good point. I see a 1-1 or something, not good for anyone involved.

                                Interested to hear the communities views on Jota over Jimi

                                Only watched one wolves game (game just gone) and I thought Jota looked very sharp and unlucky not to come away with something - he looked very sharp.

                                At 6.1 and saving 1.3m over the more favoured Jimi could allow a nice combination duo elsewhere. Obviously comes with the roation risk of Europe but it seems like wolves are getting into groove with that now!

                                Worth the risk or is it a rank killer?

                                    Yeah smart thinking and do agree, I think hes a good pick for the 6m spot though over the likes of Ings and stuff. Theres some people out there (me ha) to scrape up another million to fund Jimi would need to take a hit!

                                      I'd take the hit personally. Or go for Ings.
                                      Next 3 fixtures are awesome

                                        Interesting - I have toyed with dropping sterling and a 4.3 to Maddison and Jiminez.

                                        Initially had sterling earmarked to make way for Mane with no hit but now im starting to question whether the above makes more sense.

                                        Spoilt for options atm its tough - not to overthink is def the key!

                                double pool defence is the way forward guys, Baps magnets and some delicios fixtures coming up, toss in Mane and your sorted !!

                                    It's also a surefire way to drop down the rankings with 14.5mil tied up in two defenders who could consistently get 2 pointers 😉

                                    1. King Henrik

                                      1 month, 4 days ago

                                      True but with those fixtures its a gamble worth taking, With both defenders nailed on in the premier league and consistently providing assists its the best way into the Liverpool points imo. also the baps are a major bonus.

                                        They aren't really guaranteed baps when assisting. Lots of examples of that this season.

                                  id be surprised if they were not the top 2 defenders by the end of the season.
                                  liverpool 2/12 for clean sheets, and each of the 10 by a single goal.

                                  Those that have owned double Liverpool defence from the start are the unluckiest FPL managers out there. Explosions imminent.

                                  First two have better fixtures this week, albeit with poorer form. Are you going to be priced out?

                                      He plays LW in a poor Arsenal team. Good luck

                                Couple of quick questions:

                                1A) Lascelles (who i occasionally rotate with Tomori) + Rashford or
                                1B) Robbo + Ings

                                2) Mane or Salah

                                3X) Kdb + Ings
                                3Y) Maddison + Rashford

                                  3X unless you have Aguero/Sterling. Would keep a city attacker.

                                Which would you choose. Can’t shake off selling Sterling is a bad idea. Rotation will surely increase in the coming weeks though.
                                A) Sterling and Tielemans
                                B) KDB and Maddison plus lots of money itb for Mount to Pulisic, possibly TAA in too.

                                  B for me - its what im trying to work towards atm!

                                  Currently think of doing Sterling and a 4.3 to Maddison and Jiminez or simply do Sterling to Mane for a sala/mane double up!

                                  So Bournemouth want to give Liverpool Fraser, whilst they keep Harry Wilson. I think that sounds genuine.

                                    Why would pool want Fraser?

                                        He's good player. Not sure they have the squad depth City have. Why wouldn't they?
