Why I’m not getting Salah for Liverpool’s Double Gameweek

Happy New Year everyone, I trust that you all have recovered from what was, quite frankly, a manic Christmas schedule – packed full of matches, goals and VAR controversy.

Just as I am planning my fitness regime to try and burn off the excessive gluttony of the festive period, my attentions turn to plotting moves for my own Fantasy Football team, to try and carry on my streak of green arrows.

Perhaps I am in a fortuitous position, but looking at my team, I feel like I’m in pretty good shape. I managed to resist the urge of selling any Liverpool players, so have enjoyed Sadio Mané‘s (£12.3m) and Trent-Alexander Arnold‘s (7.5) hauls over the last few weeks and I’m not having to decide over whether or not to bring in Danny Ings (£6.7m) before his inevitable decline in form.

I’ve got myself a nice little differential in the form of Lucas Digne (£5.7m), and am effectively playing a 2-4-4 formation with Lord John Lundstram (£5.1m) and Anthony Martial (£7.9m) with the wrong positional classifications.

Things are looking pretty rosy at the moment, but I’m conscious that things are about to be shaken up with the impending Double Gameweek 24 on the horizon.

Despite having no Triple Captain chip in my locker (thanks for the 5 points Jamie Vardy…), I am looking at players who will take the coveted third  Liverpool spot in my team.

There are a few options I am considering.

The reshuffle – Mohamed Salah

 1

If I want to get the joint-priciest player in the game, Mohamed Salah (£12.3m), some surgery is going to be needed.

I can’t see myself wanting to lose Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) who continues to impress both the eye and the FPL scoring charts.

Mané obviously stays, as does Vardy, so I’m going to have to dump some players who are actually playing pretty well for me.

Martial could be a willing sacrifice, but he plays Burnley in Gameweek 24, who have struggled against the big clubs this season.

Jack Grealish (£6.4m) would be a reluctant sale, as he has been thriving in a number 10 role and was unlucky to ‘only’ come away with 13 points in the Gameweek 21 win at Burnley.

He plays a resurgent Watford in Gameweek 24… a few weeks ago, this would have been the best fixture of them all. Not anymore, as David revealed yesterday!

But it’s not a straight swap of Grealish to Salah of course. I’d have to systematically ditch other players who I’d actually quite like to keep hold of. Raul Jiménez (£7.5m) has blanked in his last two games, but before that, was delivering incredibly consistent returns.

Adama Traoré (£5.6m) is the flavour of the week, and while I have doubts over his ability to perform as a fourth midfielder, I quite like him nestled in my team as a fifth midfielder for when I need him.

Overall, I’m just not convinced that major surgery is needed. I know Salah is an incredible player, and looks to be getting back to his best… but the damage it may do to my team if I did go for him may be irreparable. Would I captain him anyway, with Mané being in such good form alongside him? I doubt it.

The defensive double up – Andrew Robertson

I absolutely love attacking defenders, and Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) certainly fits the bill. In a straight shootout, I’d choose Trent every day of the week, due to his set pieces and overall delivery – but pairing the two marauding fullbacks together may be a good bit of business for myself, and anyone else who will struggle to get Salah in.

I had the defensive double-up earlier in the season, and in truth, it was a bit of a nightmare.

But here we have a Liverpool side who have now kept five clean sheets in a row. Liverpool have already registered a shutout against Wolves this season and are unlikely to be worried against a Hammers side who, despite a strong showing against Bournemouth last week, have struggled in front of goal recently.

Another potential option could be Joe Gomez (£5.2m) , who has recovered from a pretty woeful start of the season to be an instrumental cog in Liverpool’s season.

His price means I could easily switch Lundstram out for him, without even needing to plan. Because I was so stubborn with John, I’d only lose £0.1m too. The perks of resisting the Lord for so long.

However, Virgil Van Dijk (£6.4m), the lynchpin of the entire side, just doesn’t really appeal to me.

He has three goals this season (two of them coming against Brighton), but for £0.6m more I could grab Robertson, or for £1.2m less, I could grab the bargain that is Gomez. I don’t feel as though he offers enough to justify his price with those two around.

The punt – Firmino

It seems strange to me that Liverpool’s only FPL classified striker, Roberto Firmino (£9.3m) who plays pretty much every game, has only six goals this season – given how potent Liverpool’s attack has been all season. Not only that, he has 10 blanks in his last 13 games, and only 8.9% ownership.

In theory, his form shouldn’t even warrant a place in my thinking, but if I did want to add another string to my Liverpool attack bow, then he’s the only real consideration I can make.

With Liverpool’s fixtures remaining good right up until Gameweek 29 however, I can see myself getting locked in with the pricy Firmino.  

He’s off the back of his most prolific season for Liverpool, with 27 goals in all competitions last year, but we know that his role in the team is often to drop deep and connect play.

Firmino hasn’t impressed me all that much this season, with the game against Sheffield United being one of the worst I’ve seen him play in a long time. This one feels like a real punt, and not one that fills me with optimism… but a couple of hauls over the next few games may force my hand.

The outsiders – West Ham

Of course, we should not forget about West Ham, who also have two fixtures in Gameweek 24… albeit with much less inviting opposition in Liverpool and Leicester, the two best teams in the league currently.

Will Lukasz Fabianski (£4.9m) get enough save points in this week to justify a very boring goalkeeper transfer? I am not sure – and he has a particularly rough set of fixtures around the Double Gameweek too, with Manchester City and Liverpool (again!) both visiting the Olympic stadium.

In attack, Felipe Anderson (£6.6m) has had a significant price drop since the start of the season but has attacking returns in his last two games.

He played as a striker in the FA cup too, in a strong-looking line-up – and if this continues, could be a great differential with only 3% ownership.

Others are talking about Michael Antonio (£6.9m), but while I think he is a game-changing player, his FPL returns over the last few years have been disappointing and he seems quite expensive when you consider the price of other players such as Grealish and the amount of midfielders delivering week-in week-out.

Conclusion

In conclusion, it looks as though I’ll be wielding a Liverpool defensive double up for the Double Gameweek.

Not owning Salah will be scary, but I have to hope that my other players (with good games that particular week) can pick up the slack.

I wouldn’t begrudge anyone for tearing up their teams for Mo though, particularly if you want to have a January clear-out and are still hanging on to players like Mason Mount (6.3).

For those with Harry Kane (£11.0m) and even Raheem Sterling (£11.8m), surely the move to Salah will be an easy one, but for those who have spread the cash, getting the Golden Boot winner of the last two years may prove to be too difficult.

    Some good fixtures in GW24 and I can see net losses for people who tinker too much with their teams.

      I’d go B, but don’t take a minus 4, keep Martial for Norwich and switch to Mane next week for free.

    Thanx.

    1. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 27 days ago

      I’d personally play Grealish or Cantwell ahead of Holgate, but no saying that’s the right thing to do, just my preference.

      That’s two words.
      And my advice is save it for the blanks later in the season.

      1. Azathoth
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        This.

    2. mik-hail-tal

      Can't believe you messed that up.

    3. PlumaPiedra

      2 words... What a waste.

      31

  9. mik-hail-tal
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 27 days ago

    I downgraded Alli and now have the money to make a straight swap from Rico to Robertson and go for your tactic.
    But, if I 'downgrade' Abraham to Ings next week, I'll have the money to upgrade Martial to Salah in gw 24.
    Simple choice for me 🙂

    1. Soto Ayam
        5 months, 27 days ago

        So which will you do?

        1. mik-hail-tal
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 26 days ago

          Salah TC babyy

    2. JasonG123
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 27 days ago

      Play Holgate (BHA) or Grealish (MCI)?

      1. HamezMace
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Grealish for me.

    3. Stoic
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 27 days ago

      DCL or Jiminez over the next 5 ? DCL looks better

      1. HamezMace
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Fixtures favour DCL, but Jiminez is a better player.
        Fair difference in price, does DCL allow you to make other significant upgrades, especially in GW24?

        1. Stoic
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          Not significantly. Thinking of having Jiminez for 2 then moving to DCL and en back to Jiminez

    4. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 27 days ago

      Who scores more points?

      A) Fabianski
      (shu, EVE, lei & LIV, BHA, mci, liv, SOU, ars, WOL)

      B) Henderson
      (WHU, ars, MCI, cry, BOU, BHA, avl, NOR, new)

      1. HamezMace
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Impossible to predict.
        I think the safest thing to say is that for all the stressing about which keeper to have, over the next ten week or so, there will probably be about ten points different between the best choice, and the worst choice.

        1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          Kind of agree with that but if you can get on someone like Guaita who scored 34 points between GW14-17 the transfer could be lucrative.

        2. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          Fwiw, in last 10 GWs, there is a difference of around 25pts

          1. HamezMace
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            More than I thought, but still too difficult to predict which one is best.
            I never like facts to get in the way of a bold prediction anyway.

            1. Holmes
              • 6 Years
              5 months, 27 days ago

              Thats true. Who would think that DDG and Gazzaniga would be 2nd worst whereas Dubravka/Foster in top 5.

              1. HamezMace
                • 5 Years
                5 months, 27 days ago

                I suppose what I meant to say is that between the popular choices, Ryan, Fabianski, Henderson, Pope, and Foster, over ten games, there will be close to ten points in it....not possible to predict the order, and not worth loosing sleep over.

      2. Penang Sandman
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Henderson surely

      3. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Assuming SHU will be as solid as first half, Henderson will win.

      4. Bobby Digital
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Hendo looks better on paper.

      5. Stoic
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Better question would be for next four

        1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          Not really. I dont want to spend transfers on goalkeepers every 4 weeks.

          1. Stoichkov#8
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            This. Thats why as Henderson owner Im defo stick.

            1. Stoic
              • 3 Years
              5 months, 27 days ago

              Keeping Hendo till 31 here

          2. Stoic
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Fair.

    5. Jullepuu
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Bench one:

        A) Grealish (MCI)

        • 7 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        I am getting Salah, Southampton & Norwich i the weeks following is too good to ignore IMO. At present I have exact funds to get him in for Traore, so no major surgery required.

        1. mik-hail-tal
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 27 days ago

          Don't tell me you're sitting with 7 miljoné's in the bank?

          1. Do I Not Like Orange
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Will be when my 2 FTs are finalised this week (Kane/Alli > Jimmy/Maddison). Just have to hope Salah doesn't rise quicker than Traore in the interim.

      • Bobby Digital
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Double def and a mid is the way to go.

        1. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          True

        2. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          There is no right or wrong way to go about it.

        3. Konstaapeli
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          Could be. But would hate to own the wrong mid.

          1. StayoutheSpiceZone
            • 2 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Agreed. Especially if someone TCs them too! If they have Mane and you don't and he scores 3 across the two games on a TC then it is a massive loss

        4. HamezMace
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          But if you TC one of mids, you get 3pts for a clean sheet from them anyway. Plus the increased likelihood of attacking returns.

        5. StayoutheSpiceZone
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          I think double defence against West Ham could be gold, but I certainly would expect Wolves to score. I could see the games being something like

          WH 0-3 Liv
          WW 1 - 3 Liv

          1. mik-hail-tal
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 26 days ago

            West Ham could still be experiencing a new manager bounce while also being notoriously good vs top 6, so they can also perfectly score a goal.

      • Treadstone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Groupthink on here is Fab and it's easy to get swept along with that but I'll be sticking with Henderson.

        As someone who plans to Salah (TC) & given the history of these "Why I'm... " articles, this makes me very happy 😉

        A DGW followed by those fixtures for a good few weeks for the best team in the league by a mile this season? Surely you want the 3 x most explosive Liverpool options (i.e Salah, Mane and TAA).

          I know I do.

        5 months, 27 days ago

        Which is the best combo:
        a. Grealish and Jiminez
        b. Maddison and DCL

          Thats a tough one and could either way honestly.
          Im on A and they have done well for me so I have no reason to switch till their fixtures are good.

          A

          A

          Right now it’s A.
          Are you contemplating who to get rid of to accommodate Salah?
          The only issue with Jiménez is that he’ll be playing in EL from mid February. That will come along with difficult fixtures after next 2

          Tough call! All are good pick. I have all of them except for Jimi

        It’s simple. If you have a low TV, then you go for the defensive double up. Therefore, a low TV may be a blessing in disguise.

        If you have a high TV, then as the article above says, going for Salah and Mane is a no brainier.

          5 months, 27 days ago

          Not sure about that. I have appalling TV (102.2) and I can get a decent enough team with TAA, Salah, Mane, KDB and Vardy.

        2. HamezMace

          5 months, 27 days ago

          I don’t even think your TV needs to be that high to get Salah and Mane.
          In preseason most people had double Liverpool defence and Salah and Sterling. Now you only need one Liverpool defender (and Lundstram) and Salah and Mane.

            What are we classifying high TV as? Out of interest

            1. HamezMace
              • 5 Years
              5 months, 27 days ago

              I don’t really know to be honest, I’m on 106.7 TV, don’t know about SV.
              And I have all the players we’re talking about,
              TAA, Mane, salah, KdB and Vardy.

              But my point is that in preseason most people had double
              Liverpool defence, and Digne, now they’ve got one Liverpool defender, and Lundstram, Kelly, Rico etc.
              Ings, DCL, Sarr, Cantwell all decent attacking options.
              Salah and Mane should be easy. It’s only hard if your team isn't flexible.

        3. Holmes

          I would go with double defense even if I had high TV

              Vardy if fit I think.

            Vardy Rashford Jiminez

            1.1 ITB

            Guess for the DGW is a decision between
            A: Doherty to Robertson
            B: Doherty to 4.9 and KDB to Salah

            Thoughts?

          3. Ole Trafford

            This debate is a coin toss really. West Ham with a new manager and playing a lot better. Moyes said the focus will be on defence in the coming weeks. Wolves never concede many. I think Liverpool might not score as many goals as people think. On the other hand, the defence has been great lately but hoping for 2cs is unlikely imo.

            1. Ole Trafford
              • 7 Years
              5 months, 27 days ago

              I still think I’m too much of a coward to go without the trio of TAA, Manè and Salah to cover my bases.

            2. HamezMace
              • 5 Years

              Liverpool put four past Leicester, away, when they had been defensively solid all season up until that game.

              West Ham can talk about being solid all they like, but I’m still going to go with what I’ve seen so far this season, from both Liverpool and West Ham

              Wolves lost 2-5 at home to Chelsea. I'll give you the fact that was a bit of an outlier, however.

            Looks like Jimenez will rise and I have the exact funds to do Abraham to Jimenez (-4).

            Should I do it or keep the team as it is and find another replacement for Abraham later?

            Rest of the team:

            Fabianski
            TAA - Lundstram - Soy
            Salah - Mane - KDB - Grealish
            Vardy - Abraham - Ings

            McGovern - Cantwell - Rico - Kelly

            Have Mane and TAA. Salah will join my team in 24.

              Too bad you’re going to miss out on him playing against Spurs and Man Utd

            How many BGWs & DGWs do we have this year? Any idea?

            1. HamezMace

              5 months, 27 days ago

              There are lots of factors to influence this...for example games being postponed because of bad weather.

              What we know for sure is the league cup final weekend will create a blank for whoever plays in that game...one of City, Utd, Leicester or Villa...and there opponents in that week.

              Then it depends who goes through in the FA cup, there were only 4 ties of all PL teams for the next round, so we could get a big blank GW if all the PL teams beat there lesser opponents.

              I think BGW 31 and possibly 28. DGW 37. Not completely sure.
