Liverpool assets providing FPL managers with Double Gameweek 24 dilemma

Liverpool 2-0 Sheffield United

  • Goals: Mohamed Salah (£12.3m), Sadio Mane (£12.3m)
  • Assist: Andrew Robertson (£7.0m)
  • Bonus: TBC – still unconfirmed at the time of writing

Fantasy Premier League managers opting for a Liverpool triple-up in Double Gameweek 24 face the proverbial welcome selection headache from the options available.

Some FPL bosses will have already made up their minds but for those still deliberating over which three assets to perm, there were more strong cases being made in Thursday’s 2-0 win over Sheffield United.

Having registered only two shut-outs in the first 15 Gameweeks of the season, the Reds have now banked five clean sheets in a row – more than nine other Premier League clubs, including Spurs, Wolves, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea, have managed all season.

With full-backs Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m), we’re not just getting defensive contributions.

Alexander-Arnold already has 12 attacking returns to his name in 2019/20 but took a backseat against the Blades, with fellow full-back Robertson banking an assist and maximum bonus for his first double-digit haul since Gameweek 36 of last season.

Virgil van Dijk (£6.4m), about as nailed a starter as any Liverpool player in a Double Gameweek, also looks set to pick up a bonus point or two to go with his clean sheet to move fourth in the FPL points standings for defenders, behind only his two aforementioned teammates and John Lundstram (£5.1m).

The ‘value’ bet would be a defensive double-up (or even triple-up, for the maverick few) and one of Sadio Mane (£12.3m) or Mohamed Salah (£12.3m), with the extra cash freed up perhaps the difference between having a balanced FPL squad and a fodder-filled bench.

The trouble, of course, is that the two premium Liverpool midfield options are difficult to ignore.

Salah and Mane were both on the scoresheet at Anfield, with Salah converting Robertson’s cross to break the deadlock and Mane finishing at the second attempt after the interval to put the game to bed.

There could have been further or other attacking returns, too.

Salah would have had the assist for Mane’s goal had the Senegal international converted his pass at the first time of asking, while the Egyptian also forced Dean Henderson (£4.9m) into three saves of varying degrees of difficulty and agonisingly hit the post with a cross that drifted over everyone’s head on the hour-mark.

Mane meanwhile was inches from getting more meaningful contact on a Robertson delivery just after the break, with John Egan‘s (£4.5m) unpunished bear hug on the left-winger preventing him from doing so.

Certainly, there was no sign of fatigue from the pair or any lingering effects of the chronic ankle issue that bugged Salah in late-autumn, with the premium duo looking sharp throughout.

Roberto Firmino (£9.2m) will likely be the differential Double Gameweek 24 punt.

Owned by just 8.9% of overall FPL managers and only 1.5% in the top 10k, it’s easy to see why he’s not as popular an option, having banked fewer FPL points than the three discussed Liverpool defenders and even one less attacking return than Alexander-Arnold.

His selfless link-up play can adversely affect his own Fantasy output but there has been little wrong his underlying stats all season (more shots in the box than Mane, for instance) and there is a sense that he is perhaps due an explosion of points.

A meagre four attacking returns in 14 league appearances tells its own story, sadly, and his goal conversion rate has always been on the modest side in previous campaigns.

The fixture congestion eases slightly for the Reds now, although there is the small matter of a Merseyside derby in the FA Cup third round this Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp promised “fresh legs” for that encounter although his lengthy injury list – Naby Keita (£5.8m) was added to the list of casualties when pulling out of the starting XI in the warm-up – may prevent him from making wholesale changes against the Toffees.

Speaking after full-time, Klopp said:

I will not tell Carlo Ancelotti the line-up. But I will do what I think is right to do. Some things I can decide by myself, I will. And some things the medical department will tell me. So that means I don’t know in this moment what the line-up will be, but it will be the best possible [one] for us in this moment.

But we will have fresh legs and what we need is support. They played yesterday, we played today, the only advantage we have is Anfield. We need support from the first second. We will see how it will be. It was a tough game tonight and we have to make sure we make the right decisions. Hopefully, I can do that. 

We have 13 adult players. And go through this period and after tonight we have 12. Takumi [Minamino] coming in makes it 13 again. Nat Phillips – if you want to count him with 22 years as an adult player with no Premier League experience – makes it, at least for one or two weeks, 14.

On Keita, the Liverpool boss added:

He will not be involved against Everton. That makes it 12 adult players we have, plus the kids, so that’s not cool, but we cannot change it.

Sheffield United welcomed back their very own popular FPL asset for this clash after he missed the defeat to Manchester City with an ankle injury.

Lundstram returned to the Blades starting XI and almost scored within five minutes, an opportunistic effort looping wide of Alisson‘s (£6.0m) goal.

The out-of-position Fantasy defender then made sure of putting the ball in the back of the net despite being flagged for offside but there was to be no fairytale goal for the boyhood Liverpool fan, with a VAR check confirming that he had strayed beyond the last defender.

After David McGoldrick‘s (£5.4m) effort that Alisson beat away, the Blades didn’t have another (legal) shot on goal for another 80 minutes, with substitute Oli McBurnie (£5.7m) almost denying the Reds their clean sheet with the clock ticking down.

As a typically honest (and perhaps overly harsh) Wilder said after full-time, the Blades battled manfully but barely troubled their hosts:

From our point of view, I was disappointed really. I did not think we laid a glove on them.

I think the scoreline flattered us. I know Dean [Henderson] got a lot of criticism for his unfortunate mistake at our place, but I thought he was the difference between it not being three, four or five.

Obviously, when you come here, you have got to try and get a foothold in the game and we could not have got off to a worse start in terms of George (Baldock) slipping and they took full advantage. It gave them a big lift and it was comfortable for Liverpool.

You could see why they are world and European champions and they look like they are going to be Premier League winners as well. People talk to me about academies and technical stuff and rotation, but the basic stuff they had to tonight – win headers, races and drop on second balls and run and play forward and back and defend as a team – they did it miles better than us. They were more aggressive and physical than us. It was not like us.

The two parts of comfort I can take is that our supporters were absolutely magnificent in their backing of our players. We never gave them anything to shout out.

The second bit is that is has taken 21 games for a team to really roll us over like Liverpool did.

That last line sums Sheffield United up perfectly: in this their first Premier League campaign in over a decade, they have yet to be beaten by more than a two-goal margin and have been competitive in pretty much every single match bar this one.

It’s fair to say that Lundstram and co will be back in many starting XIs in Gameweek 22, with the visit of West Ham United providing a better chance of FPL returns at both ends of the pitch.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson (Lallana 88′); Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum; Salah (Elliott 90′), Firmino, Mane (Origi 78′).

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Henderson; Basham, Egan, O’Connell; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood (Besic 78′), Fleck, Stevens; McGoldrick (Sharp 66′), Mousset (McBurnie 65′).

    Will Jahanbakhsh play enough minutes for me to bring him in?
    He is a good enabler (to bring in Liverpool def) who scored two goals in last 2 games and Brighton have good fixtures.

      Potter chops and changes his top 3 too often

    1. Any Kelly replacement at 4.3? currently considering Stephens(sou)
    2. Any dendonker replacement at 4.4?

      I agree on Stephens. They have tightened up and has a bit of goal threat. Him or Holgate at that price range

      1. Lindelol
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        0.1 short for Holgate. Will bring him in for Rico after few weeks

      Cathcart. Stephens is also fine.

      1. Lindelol
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        So Cathcart or Stephens then??

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years

          Stephens has lil bit of attacking threat, so go for him.

          You can also check whether he rotates well with your defence or not

      Keep dendonker.

  4. rdpx

    Let's try that again...

    Is it worth a Hit to bring in Salah & Ings and lose Alli & Rashford?

    1. Make America Greta Again
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      No imo, keep Rashers.

    2. Mr. Wizard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Nope, nothing is ever worth a hit imo... I never take them

      1. rdpx
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        What about waiting and doing it next week for free?

        1. Mr. Wizard
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          That sounds like a better idea, yes

      2. Ron_Swanson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        It’s worth a hit if the players you bring in score more than the players you remove plus the cost of the hits. Happens quite frequently.

        1. Mr. Wizard
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          You can never predict that though and sometimes the player that you transfer out does well... I’ve never taken a hit and am top 500 rank

        2. Lindelol
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 19 days ago

          That hardly happens though. I have taken only one hit. I'd do only for an injured player probably.

    3. Quite Big Dunc
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      The whole Salah-enabler moves definitely run the risk of messing up the balance of the team.

      Tempting to ditch Alli though.

    4. Kitman
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I've done this exact move for a hit

      but would ideally have waited but would not be able to afford it in 2 weeks time as Alli would have dropped and salah and Ings might rise

      leaves me with 0 ITB but i'll worry about that later

  5. CrouchDown
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    How do these moves sound?

    GW22: Kane > DCL, Pope > Fab (-4)
    GW23: Martial > Mane
    GW24: Bring in form WHU player

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      On paper, looks good

  6. Make America Greta Again
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Thinking of bench boosting dgw 24. Have 3 Pool and 2 Hammers, just need a couple of subs. Any other takers?

    1. rdpx
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      TC here I think

      1. Brooksy86
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Mane, Salah or TAA?

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      That was my first thought but requires too many transfer with respect to my team. If you can field a decent side, go for it.

    3. ALI_G
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      no

      save for a proper double

    4. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      TC is the chip to go for

  7. Mr. Wizard
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Worth doing Tammy to Rash for free?

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Yep

      1. Mr. Wizard
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Burnley look awful lately though?

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Yeah but his home form is concerning.

          1. Mr. Wizard
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            True and Rashy fk and pens I guess...

    2. Keeptrying
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      good if no other pressing issues. But not sure Rashford is going to have better returns than Abraham.

  8. Arse Craic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    96 injuries of varying severity reported across last month and the first two days of 2020 in PL.
    Festive football is tough!

    1. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      FA cup to come too. Keep your transfers until as late as possible!

  9. jimmyabs1987

  10. tvz32
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Who would you play for GW22?

    1) Abraham (BUR)
    2) Lord Lundstram (WHU)

    1. cpo001
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Abraham comfortably.

    2. Arse Craic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Lord

    3. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I can’t believe it’s between those two

  11. Keeptrying
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    How does this look for GW22 (saving 1FT GW21)?

    McCarthy (Button)
    TAA-Soy-Lund (Kelly, Rico)
    Salah - Mane - KDB - Maddison - Grealish
    Vardy - DCL (Greenwood)

    Depending on price changes until then I could have between 1.8 and 2.0 ITB
    Which players would you upgrade: bench, Goalkeeper(s)?

  12. Pep Pig

    I'm actually looking forward to a weekend off from FPL. It's been a successful 4 GWks but i'm shattered now 😀

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      True that, much needed break but for opposite reason, December was probably my worst month 😀

      1. Pep Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        You'll turn it around mate I'm sure. Definitely been a challenging season

  13. Watford's resurgence

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    • 10 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    After a poor start to the season, things are looking up for Watford.

    Nigel Pearson, who has simplified their approach, has now recorded three victories in his opening five matches.

    Critical to the club’s change in fortunes have been the performances of Sarr, Deulofeu and Deeney. The trio have now scored seven goals in Watford’s last four fixtures to finally arm the Hornets with the attacking firepower they have missed all season.

    So… are you looking to bring in any Watford assets ahead of bou / TOT / avl / EVE / bha?

    If so, what is your preference… a midfielder like Sarr or Doucoure, who is now operating in a more advanced position in the centre of midfield, or one of the forwards Deulofeu or Deeney?

    … and is defence worth investment, maybe even Foster at 4.8, who has picked up 24 points over the last five Gameweeks?

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Sarr and Deulofeu are looking good, pretty sure they will be able to justify their price as well.

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yeah they both look good - Deulofeu is prob the more creative of the two, but Sarr looks more likely to score.

      2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        With respect to defence, they are not conceding many clear cut chances.

        Kabasele and Cathcart are important. Foster has also been immense.

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I got in Sarr last week. Think I'm fine for defenders.

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Nice move. I bought him in too ahead of GW20. For me, he's the pick of the bunch.

    3. Hy liverpool
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Sarr is a good pick tbh.
      Deeney and DCL are on my watchlist atm as i want to get rid of Maupay...

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yeah I own Maupay too, and have been looking at Calvert-Lewin as a possible replacement, but Brighton's fixtures are decent. Maupay close to scoring against Chelsea too.

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Sold Maupay for DCL. Plan to bring in Mooy at 4.8m for Brighton fodder.

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Nice - I may still make that move to be honest.

            1. Karan14
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Even I'm considering making that move. DCL statistically beating Maupay and medium term fixtures look better for Everton.

              I have also noticed Maupay seems to drift a bit wide when Connolly is playing.

              1. avfc82
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                That's an interesting observation, need to look into that further.

        2. Hy liverpool
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          That's true but he didn't pass the eye test for me and i would like an everton attacker more than brighton atm.
          AV can you guess who is on penos for villa atm? Asked epic fail and he is guessing it's between grealish and kodjia.. But i'm not sure kodjia is going to start myself

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Yep, also think Everton have a little more firepower than Brighton too.

            Was just talking about penalties at Villa... I think Grealish, but Kodjia could be given one to give him a bit of confidence. I'd expect us to sign a new forward soon tho, which should tell us more.

    4. funny money
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I like their defence as it is cheap. For now have brought in Cathcart due to injuries/suspensions but have my eye on Janmaat when he returns, Kabasele and Femenia

        Yeah I went with Mariappa a couple of weeks back, simply because I thought he'd get a bit more joy down Villa's left side. Didn't go to plan, but I think there is value in the guys priced at 4.2, 4.3.

      I think Deeney and Deulofeu will both be looking to get 10 PL goals this year and can't split them other than Deeney is on pens. Big fan of Deulofeu though when he looks in the mood.
      Sarr seems a decent punt but feel like he's the type of player to make way once he under performs. That's why I'd say a more attacking Doucoure would get the nod before him in my team. He's looking great value again.
      6 CS is decent for this Watford team but I'd prefer an attacking option if I was going to take the punt. Double up would never cross my mind

        My take is Deulofeu is probably the more creative of the forward options, whilst Sarr offers the most goal threat. Deeney combines the two pretty well.

          Without a doubt mate. I imagine under Pearson he will have to put a shift in every training session if he wants to play. He's certainly looking back to a decent level last couple of weeks. If they keep it up then I'd definitely make the move for an attacking option for Villa in GW24

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Yep, putting a shift in is definitely non-negotiable under Pearson!

    6. QuintonFortune25
      • 3 Years

      Got Foster in a GW20 WC and really happy to own. Thought the goal that Wolves scored was quite lucky (huge deflection) and Foster seems to pull out massive saves when called upon, nearly a second clean sheet in a row.

      Of the attacking players I really like Sarr, seems like a really talented player with end product. I was surprised at his price though, £6.2 seems a bit high, Deulofeu is actually cheaper and a bit more proven. I think either Sarr or Deulofeu are good differentials, it depends on your squad and which one fits best I suppose.

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yeah I agree, depends on your squad, but with a lot of cheaper options up top performing, I found it easier to acccomodate Sarr.

        Nice Foster move!

    7. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Was eyeing up Grealish to Sarr but surely I cant make that move now.

      Foster is under consideration as I really need to replace Pope asap.

      Maupay to Deeney/Deulefeu is another option but they are competing with DCL.

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I'd be tempted to hold Grealish now, see how he performs over the next few in the new system. Possible penalties too.

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Yes I'm going to keep him for the next few now and monitor.
          You won't believe it but I benched him this week for Cantwell thank God for Vardy missing out though.

          1. avfc82

            • 10 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            After our performance against Watford, I think that made sense! The reason for our better showing was a move to a 3-4-3, which nobody could really foresee.

    8. GAMBIT
      • 5 Years

      Am looking at one of their defenders for a Kelly replacement. Either Cathcart or Kiko (if he is fit)

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yep, both good options, or Kabasele once he's back from suspension.

    9. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Can’t find room for any of them

          That being said - their next 3 fixtures look unbelievably good

          Ings > Deulofeu Hokey Cokey

          What could possibly go wrong...

    10. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years

      Got Kiko and he’s done well when called upon for the most part.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years

        Yeah, you def dodged a bullet by going for him over Kabasele or Mariappa!

    11. HamezMace

      1 month, 19 days ago

      Obviously the new manager bounce only works when it’s a brand new manager, not just rehiring you’re old manager. Take caution West Ham fans.

      I got Femenia in a couple of weeks ago, for willems and that worked out very well.
      I’d like Deeney, but will probably just get Ings to avoid losing ground on the top 10k.

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        Yeah Ings' form making it hard for non owners.

    12. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I like Sarr.

      But not gonna sacrifice KDB, Mané, Maddison, Grealish or Martial (at least not now, not before Norwich at home) for him, am I?

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Could maybe go Jimenez to Deeney (or DCL), but Raul will remain more consistent I think.

      2. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yeah I think with that midfield, it makes sense to hold, then have another look after GW21.

    13. The Rumour Mill
      • 3 Years

      I'm looking at liberating a bit of cash for my third Liverpool asset in GW24 by replacing Aurier with a 4.3m defender or less this week. Very interested in Watford given their resurgence since Pearson took over, and the decent fixtures.

      Kabasele isn't really an option for me given his suspension. Who is most nailed out of Cathcart, Kiko, Masina and Mariappa?

    14. doyeon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I brought in Kiko 2 GWs ago, got a cleanie but then he got injured on 59' in the last match...

      I took a punt last week and got Sarr in for Grealish, for a hit. Bad timing ! Currently 12 points down on that move but will see how they get on over the next few weeks. Hoping Sarr can outscore him.

    5. ppv

      You have made the transfers bit early. Leicester and Villa have 2 cup matches before next GW. Maddison or grealish could get injured.

  22. El Lobito 10
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Does Aston Villa's injury news change anything for Grealish's appeal? No striker, Heaton missing will weaken team spirit surely, with what was already a porous defence. If it affects Grealish will it be bad or good? Maybe he can become even more important for them. Or maybe it deprives him of a striker that enables him.

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years

      January transfer window is here so they’ll probably buy to fill the gaps otherwise will be a struggle
