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′).

      Downgrade to someone like Cantwell or Traore, and upgrade Greenwood.

      If not, Grealish.

        Was tempted but I want a cheap playing bench, Greenwood is fodder.
        Grealish is a great shout. Fixtures look better after next week

        Interesting differential at 4.4% ownership. Cheers

          He's been injured and just coming back. See how much he plays in the FA cup - it will depend on how quickly he's reintegrated into the squad. The only holders right now are probably dead teams.

          Before he was injured he was ticking along very nicely at his price point.

            He won't start I think, but I think he'll come on at ~60 mark. He might then play again on Tuesday for the Carabao cup. Two non-premier league games to monitor.

          You've been a member of fantasyfootballscout for 9 years but have only played fpl for 1 year? Okay.

          That's not a VAR rule, it's a standard fpl rule nothing to do with VAR

          Rules of VAR,

    What to do with this team ?

    Last few weeks it was good but I am starting not to like my current team!

    Should I change them one by one week after week or do some urgent moves for a hit (or two)

      You need TAA/Robertson. Downgrade Kane to Ings and upgrade Kelly.

  4. Jinswick

    • 9 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    With Kane likely to be out for a while, worth holding on to Moura for a bit?

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

      I'm not sure if it makes them better, different story to the last time he was injured

    2. BobBradleysOpportunity
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      See how they set up in fa cup

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

    Unpopular opinion.

    There is no real need for liverpool defensive double up when you have TAA Soy and Lundy as your starting 3 with Dunk as 1st sub.

    Id rather prefer that backline plus Salah Mane in midfeild. And believe me the rest of my team is well balanced unlike some people assume.

    1. Jinswick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      TAA, Mane, Salah for me

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

      What's your team? The midfield double up vs defence double up could go either way, defence easier to achieve but anyone could be rotated and anyone could haul too

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years

        Foster Button
        TAA Lundy Soy Dunk Kelly

        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Worth a punt.

        Like you say without ASM and also potentially other players like Schar I can see Cabbage Heed being exposed as the fraud he is. #FCBOUT

      2. mynameisq

        Not crazy but this season he hasn't been someone who hauls really, think he's only for the 1 Vs city

      3. Royal5

      Who to get for Alli?

      I have a budget of 9.5m and have the following;

      KDB, Mane, Grealish, Cantwell.

      A) Maddison
      B) Richarlson
      C) Mahrez
      D) Other (Please state)

      1. Stram Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        A

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

        All 3 could return, A is the safest 100% nailed and most consistent
        B) Looks decent under Ancelotti but second to DCL
        C if ever nailed could be the best but prone to rotation

          Ings is the popular choice.
          Maupay and DCL options too.
          If you want to be different, Deeney.

            Still, I was counting on a red considering only four players picked up points above the baseline (and Rico scored -1).

          I have 2FT and no pressing issue, planning to do Maupay > DCL and roll the other FT. Any better idea?

          Ryan
          TAA Soyuncu Lundstram
          Salah Mane KDB (C) Martial
          Vardy (V) Ings Maupay

          Button Rico Dendo Kelly

          Have 2 ft, bringing in TAA for Aurier and have 6.4 to spend on a mid, I have Grealish.

          Who should I go for?

              Ismaila Sarr.

            Already have Salah & Trent, was looking at VVD or Gomez with FT.
            Robbie needs a hit but KDB to Mané 24 is looking easier, then reverse??

                I got rid of KDB and regretted it. Think I will stick with him now.

                  Just for DGW?

                  Then revert to double defender

              With Josh King out and with BOU having good next fixtures, is Solanke an option in your opinion?

              Great Xmas period for me. 277pts over the 4 games. Rank has gone up from 1,357,039 after GW16 to 190,449

                  To be honest I had thrown the towel in. Not in terms of not playing and not doing transfers but in terms of playing a normal strategy and having mainly well owned players.

                  I had decided that as soon as the wildcard became available, I would load my team up with differentials and players not so highly owned. So the likes of Salah, Son, Martial, Jesus, Richarlison, Abameyang and a couple of others were gonna come in.

                  However the Son sending off changed the landscape considerably. Bringing him in would have been one of the reasons that my team would need surgery and hence a wildcard. With him out of the picture, I've continued managing my team reasonably conservatively making no hits and carrying transfers over.

                  The result has been a huge jump up the rankings with 2 transfers in hand and no need to wildcard.

              Kane to Aguero (C) is the move that may finally bring some reward. Villa are cactus

                71 points all out. Up to128k.

                Pretty chuffed with that. Was thinking of doing transfers, have 2ft's but sometimes it is better when you do nothing.

                  I agree mate your team is set out well and can't see an immediate transfer there. Does Fabianski not appeal? Or Balbuena?

                  1. FOO FIGHTER
                      1 month, 20 days ago

                      Thinking of getting McCarthy in as 2nd playing GK. 4.3m sounds about right for bench and only have 0.3 available which is on the spot to get in McCarthy.

                      West Ham fixtures looking tough.

                    Could move Rico out...
                    Bournemouth are in huge trouble now so he's basically useless.

                      I have Robertson. Is necessary to TAA along with Mane and Salah?

                        Why would it be? He just doubled his score this GW.

                          Yes but confused. I am planning for double double gw. I am going my 2 FT like below
                          1. Alli, Rashford -> Salah, DCL

                          I have Mane and upcoming he i will transfer any west harm cheap mid.
                          So worth to move Robertson -> TAA (-4)?

                      For weeks I have only red arrows. So finally I activated WC. Suggestions are welcome.

                        You'll end up with too much value on your bench!

                        You're gonna play TAA & VVD every week, then DCL for the next five you're gonna want to play; Jimi/Vardy every week & then that leaves a bench headache all the time.

                          Cantwell burned me few times this season. When I bought him, he stayed quiet. Now he is again on fire. As a first sub, he is great. Hanley also a playing sub.
                          3rd spot will be Soy/Sidibe rotation, depends on who’s @home or has easier opponent. Taa and Vvd is double for gw24, after that will sell one of them. Wanted Salah+ Mane but it is too much money tied down.

                      Can't help thinking DCL is a huge trap.

                      Although that was my exact thinking just before doing Abraham --> Ings which probably will be my best transfer of the season in the end

                        Definitely worth a punt with his form, stats, and next 5 fixtures.

                        Wouldn't call him a 'trap' considering the above, and only at 5.8.

                          What makes you think that? He's a good poacher and already has 3 in 3 under Carlo. Bar Richarlison, you don't expect anyone else to score the goals.

                        1 month, 20 days ago

                        Rashford or Tammy? And why?

                        1. Le Bluff
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          1 month, 20 days ago

                          Wouldn't be bringing in either, atm.

                          Jimenez, Vardy, Ings, DCL all better value options. And Martial is a better option than Rashford.

                          1. Mr. Wizard
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            1 month, 20 days ago

                            Currently have Tammy, Vardy, Ings. So looking to offload Tammy to Rashford

                            1. Le Bluff

                              1 month, 20 days ago

                              I have that exact strikeforce too but not even considering Rashford.

                              Would rather Jimenez, or downgrade to DCL and use the funds elsewhere (e.g. Salah + Mane double-up).

                              1. Mr. Wizard
                                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                                1 month, 20 days ago

                                Already have Salah/Mane double up haha and have the funds for Tammy to Rash for Norwich fixtures, my thoughts anyway

                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                        Who will score more in GW22?

                        A) Abraham (home v Burnley)
                        B) Deeney (away v Bournemouth)

                        • 8 Years
                        1 month, 20 days ago

                        How do I stop the freefall?
                        Already done Alli -> Salah with my FT, is there anything else I should do or just hold steady?

                        Henderson
                        Lundstram Soyuncu Rico
                        Mane Salah KDB Maddison
                        Vardy Rashford DCL

                        Button; Dendoncker, Aurier, Kelly

                        1. FF Dirtbag

                          1 month, 20 days ago

                          1 mill in the bank, 0 FT

                          Looks good for next GW
