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′).

    Jiminez at home against Newcastle or Deeney away against Bournemouth for next week? Both defences look awful

    Salah should have scored a hat-trick and had an assist......so unlucky for us Salah cappers. That would have been 48 points instead of 20.....a 28 point swing!!

      Can you do this ‘should have’ calculation for every player, every week, just so I know what points I should be on.

      Especially keen to see VAR points added, and deductions for defenders/keepers.

      Thanks

      Are you serious?

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        yes, HDAL explained it quite well though - not sure it will have the desired effect, but I'll read up on it - seems like it's just making people 'aware' but not actually doing anything about it. It's easy to say you can talk to someone, but that's not always the reality - maybe awareness will help that but I'm not convinced given most people's general attitude towards others

        1. HamezMace
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I agree with you. Whilst these campaigns are well intentioned, will they achieve anything? Judging by the ‘say no the racism’ campaign they’ve been pushing for the last ten years, I’d say it’s unlikely.

          1. mynameisq
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Hard to judge that campaign based on just the few racist incidents though, the good work and people it's reached will remain silent

            1. HamezMace
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              It’s more the double standards from the FA who push the campaign, and then do the bare minimum when comforted with any form of racism.

          2. SADIO SANÉ
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            I feel like knowing that people are 'aware' but still aren't noticing/doing anything to help would actually make it worse for the sufferer, as they then know that people don't actually care (rather than just being ignorant of it)

            1. HamezMace
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Possibly, from my limited experience of mental health issues, knowing how to help someone is difficult. There is no easy answer, and difficult to know how to speak to someone you think may be suffering.

              I think everyone is aware of it being an issue, but will thinking about it for 60 second before a cup game really change that for anyone?

              1. SADIO SANÉ
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 20 days ago

                only time will tell I guess, I feel like it could just make it worse for a lot of people but we'll see

        2. Ason Willa
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          OK, well the first step is awareness. Unbelievably most people still think 'chin up' with regards to depression is acceptable. But then look at how many people, including world leaders (like bloody Abbott) who are in complete denial about Global Warming. You can't get anyone to do anything when they don't understand it.

          1. SADIO SANÉ
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            yeah I guess so, can't help feel like it can go both ways though.

            Is there not a big chance that people become 'aware' but still don't actually do anything to help others though? It must be worse for a sufferer knowing that the people around them know about it but don't really care - not everyone will have someone to help/talk to; and even if they do the advice may be generic and not really help them.

            Maybe awareness campaigns will work, but I've seen how people react to other 'better known' illnesses, and it's not always positive - people just go into avoidance mode

            1. Ason Willa
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              So with the campaign for Racism Out, did it go both ways?

              1. SADIO SANÉ
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 20 days ago

                I honestly don't think they are comparable; Racism Out is a much more obvious campaign and focuses on people not doing something (bare in mind there are plenty of people that are still racist, but just won't actually do it in public); this is much more complicated in it's resolution and if people don't actually ACT on their awareness then it has the potential to make it worse imo, doesn't mean it will but we'll see. For every person that gets help I can see plenty still being ignored, and like I say - ignorance will no longer be the reason for that, it will be because people don't really care.

      Not of you go for Gomez as the 3rd guy.

      1. teneighty

        Yeah, he is a good option at that price.

    2. The 12th Man

      Surely you can have both.

        If I can afford to hold the transfers yes. Just feel like there is a big risk that the rest of the team suffers if I focus too much on getting double gameweekers. Will probably end up taking at least one hit ahead of GW24.

    It’s like walking in mud this season. Stuck going backwards and forwards between 500k and 900k.

    Try something different like triple Liverpool defence or stick with the crowd?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Stick and diff elsewhere

    2. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Yep. I was 30k early on but have found my position between 250-400k now

      Yo yo season

    3. HamezMace
      • 5 Years

      Try something different mate.
      You’re not going to catch up by the doing the same as those ahead of you.

      Both

      Salah-Mane-Trent is probably not that highly owned. You can drop Kevin after couple of weeks. Jimenez is still a good differential.

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Never thought of dropping KDB.
        KDB > Mane for the double is less surgery than taking out Maddison,Rashford to fund Mane.

        Can always switch Mane or Salah back to KDB later.

    5. drughi

      been around 200k for a while now, very hard to do anything

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Thinking about an early WC. Maybe between 25-30.

  19. BNMC
    1 month, 20 days ago

    All 3 of my strikers have attractive home games. Vardy has some serious competition for the armband.

    1. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Yeh I want one of Ings,Maupay or DCL but can’t justify dropping Rashford,Vardy or Jimenez next week.

      1. BNMC
        1 month, 20 days ago

        My 3 are Vardy, Raul, and DCL.
        Rashford's even a good shout.

    2. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Southampton are pretty good defensievly atm. Surely better options.

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        This they have really tightened up. Conceded only 7 goals in last 8 pl games

    3. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      KDB against villa is more tempting imo

      1. teneighty
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Agree with this.

  20. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    Speaking of the Liverpool game, is the 2.0 xG for Mane in the members area correct? Seems a bit high when Salah shows as 0.63 for the same game...

    1. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Sounds about right.

      He had two bites at the cherry for his goal which will massively inflate his xG as both were big chances I imagine. Would expect 1.3-1.5 of that xG comes from just there.

      Highlights why you need to take xG with a pinch of salt (or better yet, a pinch of context).

  21. HurriKane
    • 7 Years

    Aston Villa now have lost their 2nd and 3rd top scorer in Wesley and McGinn

    Can Grealish produce points all on his own regularly? . Not doubting his talent but will be a tough task i reckon

    1. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Agreed. Defences can just focus on him now

    2. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      They need reinforcements, luckily for them the window just opened.

    3. Ason Willa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      They'll be in for a new midfielder to replace McGinn and they're odds on to sign Hull's Jarrod Bowen. Newcastle and Leicester were also looking at him.

      They were already looking for a backup striker, but my main concern is the loss of Heaton.

      I'm hoping Kodjia can step up to the challenge of filling in for Big Wes (who most Villa fans think has been underperforming).

  22. BrutalLogiC
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    Alli Rash to Salah DCL
    Yes or no?

    1. Mingo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Can you wait a week? Rashford at home to Norwich is the only thing that would stop me doing that move, otherwise it makes sense. I'm moving Alli to Martial and upgrading Aurier to TAA rather than have the attaching double up.

      1. BrutalLogiC
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Yes have 0.2 spare.

  23. Weasel51
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    Gw 22: Aurier > Söyüncü
    Gw23: save
    Gw24: Tammy + KDB > DCL + Salah

    Only problem is I can’t afford a rise on DCL and I believe he will

  24. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    KDB also not a bad shout against a Heaton-less Villa but he did troll last week lol.

    1. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Heaton-less? Only Southampton and Norwich are letting in more goals than Heaton. I think Nyland can do a decent job.

    1.2 ITB and looking like Kane needs to be replaced. A or B?

    A) Kane -> Kun
    B) Kane -> Auba

    Foster
    TAA // Rico // Lunds // Soy
    Mane // KDB // Martial
    Kane // Vardy (c) // Jimenez

    4.0 // Cantwell // Doncker // Kelly

    1. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      I'd go cheaper (Ings/DCL) and upgrade a mid.

    Won my 5th game in the FPL Cup, a run which is showing just how much of a global game FPL is. So far I've beaten teams from Croatia, India, Egypt, South Africa and Egypt again! On to the next one...

    1. CONNERS

      The cup is a total lottery. I was drawn against someone ranked 2.5M in round one who scored 99 points.

    Ideal scenario for Man Utd would be Pogba sold and Grealish in.

    Would destroy Villa too with Heaton, McGinn, Grealish and Wesley not in the team.

    1. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Grealish will be a massive upgrade on likes of lingard pereira mata etc

      United are in dying need of a creative midfeilder abd grealish fits the bill perfectly. Maddison is another alternative

      1. mynameisq
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Yup, they have to overpay but there's players in this league right now that improve them, Grealish, Madison, Digne

      2. Ason Willa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Why would Maddison leave Leicester for Man U?

        Man U reek of desperation! They're also looking at Cantwell....

    2. Ason Willa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Grealish won't leave Villa this window and Villa have no need to sell.
