What can FPL managers expect from new Liverpool signing Takumi Minamino?

It’s early days, but Japanese star Takumi Minamino‘s (£6.5m) move to Liverpool could be the January transfer window’s stand-out piece of business.

The former Red Bull Salzburg attacker has joined the Reds for £7.25m – an almost laughably small fee in today’s inflated market given his record at the Austrian side.

We have assessed what Minamino has already achieved and what he can deliver for Fantasy managers for the rest of the 2019/20 season.

THE HISTORY AND STATISTICS

Minamino joined Japanese side Cerezo Osaka’s youth team at 12 and progressed through their academy system.

He made his first-team debut in 2012, ending that season with one goal from five appearances.

Clear progress was made over the next two seasons – he scored eight times in 38 matches to win the 2013 J.League best newcomer award – and that prompted a number of European clubs to show interest in signing him.

Red Bull Salzburg won that particular race and Minamino quickly established himself in the Austrian outfit’s midfield before being employed as a winger, on either flank, as a second striker and even a centre forward in later campaigns.

That versatility is one of his key strengths – in the 20 games he played in all competitions for Salzburg this season, he was used in five different roles across the midfield and attack, scoring nine goals and setting up another ten.

Overall in Austria, Minamino’s attacking stats are deeply impressive, with 64 goals and 44 assists across 199 appearances.

He’s also shone for the Japan national side, scoring 11 times in 22 appearances.

COMPARISONS

The following table – collated from figures for the 2019/20 season so far – highlights Minamino’s ability to both feed off chances and create them.

But what is most impressive is how well he has performed in the Champions League; a competition considerably more demanding than the Austrian Bundesliga.

Although the 24-year-old was already being monitored by Liverpool, he had the good sense to showcase his talents by scoring against them at Anfield in a thrilling 4-3 Champions League loss.

Salah22.227.246.551.5

THE PROSPECTS

Despite being mostly employed on the flanks by Salzburg this season, Minamino’s natural fit at Liverpool could well involve providing cover for (and eventually replacing) Roberto Firmino (£9.3m) through the middle – a position he occupied for the 70 minutes of his debut against Everton in the FA Cup.

That’s certainly the opinion of the coach who handed him his Cerezo Osaka debut, Levir Culpi, who has talked of the need for Minamino to become ‘an absolute regular, not a handyman’ at Liverpool, adding that the Japanese star can be ‘a more determined player’ than Firmino.

The new signing’s English debut, in the FA Cup against Everton, strengthened that notion as Jurgen Klopp started him down the middle, supported by Divock Origi (£5.2m) and Harvey Elliott (£4.5m) on the flanks.

Minamino had 33 touches and enjoyed an 86.4 per cent pass completion rate as he made a promising start to his Liverpool career.

But in the short term, the new signing will be hard pushed to dislodge any of the Reds’ fabled front three from their starting roles, so his versatility should at least guarantee him action from the bench as a replacement for any one of that trio of attackers, or as the more advanced member of the side’s midfield three.

With Champions League duties returning in February, Klopp’s need to rotate his squad could prompt him to start Minamino in a Premier League fixture or two.

And should the Reds go on to win the league title as early as their current healthy lead suggests they might, more consistent domestic action could come his way during April and May – particularly if Liverpool are still in the hunt for a second successive Champions League crown.

Minamino has consistently delivered both goals and assists in his career to date, but his move to the Premier League is a big step up in quality compared to the Austrian Bundesliga.

Then again, his record in the Champions League suggests he relishes the challenges posed by tougher opponents.

Klopp was his usual effusive self when talking about his new signing’s debut:

Super, outstanding. Exactly the player we wanted, exactly the player we wished for. Your first game in a team you don’t know, if it’s a settled team it’s already difficult – this team we threw more or less on the pitch with two sessions together. And then showing this kind of game understanding, football skills are exceptional, attitude is outstanding, led the chasing pack so often in different situations, which I loved.

That love won’t buy him too many Premier League starts for now – unless key injuries work in his favour.

But his versatility should gain him some pitch-time and there is a very real prospect of much heavier involvement if Liverpool continue on their all-conquering way.

And if he is consistently employed in the Firmino role, his FPL classification as a midfielder could mark him out as a late-season bargain offering the potential for explosive attacking returns.

    Who will score more this gw?

    Vardy + Traore or Maddison + Jimenez?

    1. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • 2 Years

      Team one

      1. StayoutheSpiceZone

      Coin Toss both good combos

      I would go with Vardy & Traore especially if you Captain Vardy as you wont Captain Maddison. Jimmy is good C option but risky

    1 week punt on an Alli replacement before getting Salah in?

    A) Martial
    B) Rich
    C) Dilva
    D) Mahrez
    E) Other

    1. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      From those I’d go Mahrez

    2. Cricket_Badger
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      I like Mahrez - is he 100% nailed to start?

      1. StayoutheSpiceZone
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Not sure, but he might do enough damage in 30 mins

        1. Cricket_Badger
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          From the little I've seen of City in the last month, Mahrez plays much better when Bernardo isn't playing on the right hand side as that's where Mahrez is obviously most effective from. But as you say, 30 mins of Mahrez is still nice for a one-week punt.

      SALAH

      1. HamezMace
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        This.
        Why aren’t you bringing in Salah now?

        1. Big Ronnie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Would be for a hit and Rashford out this week but planning the hit next week and Rashford out then

  3. Ser Davos

    4 months, 16 days ago

    Several significant managerial changes. Which do we think will fall flat and which will revitalise their club's relative fortunes?

    1. Ser Davos
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      Mourinho to underwhelm

      The bad feeing around Everton to undermine Ancelotti's rein

      Moyes seems a stale punt, bit could be one I get wrong

      Arteta to lift Arsenal mid-term to top 6

      1. Ser Davos
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Pearson to improve Watford, but enough to stay up?

        1. Do I Not Like Orange
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Yes for me.

          1. Ser Davos
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Villa, Norwich and..?

        2. Karhumies
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Yes. Bournemouth and Norwich are in "free fall mode", and it's hard for either of them to stay in the league. The third spot is most likely to be Villa, although Burnley has been recently been performing pretty badly as well. If Watford can maintain their current form, they are looking for a 10-12 spot finish for the season far away from relegation zone.

      2. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Mourinho to underwhelm, will end in tears.

        The bad feeing around Everton to undermine Ancelotti's rein, teams not playing as team.

        Moyes seems a stale punt, bit could be one I get wrong, old ideas in a new era.

        Arteta to lift Arsenal mid-term to top 6, needs too much investment short term.

        1. Ser Davos
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          As bad a time Moyes has had, he did great things at Everton and Preston

      3. Cricket_Badger
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Money talks, no doubt, but credit for Ancelotti for taking up that particular job. Vastly different from his others.

        1. Ser Davos
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          I don't see any of them providing the required shift that they all seek, not like Rodgers.

          I think he was overlooked due to giving too much credit to Suarez and not enough to Scottish football (if that makes sense).

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      Pearson built the prem winning Leicester team so Watford on the up.

      1. Ser Davos
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Interesting and good point

    3. Lateriser 12
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      I like what I see from Arteta a lot

      1. Ser Davos
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        A return to (what was previously branded as dull) top 4 football?

        1. Lateriser 12
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          I just like what I see from him

          1. Ser Davos
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            I think coming in after Emery's failed stint, rather than straight in after Wenger's era will bode well

      2. Polka Wakey O'Dot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Got a lot of work to do to change attitudes at that club. Winning a few games is the least of his problems.

    4. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      Would like to see Moyes flop badly - nothing against West Ham persay, but can't stand the man himself or the Dildo Bros.

      Think Jose will do enough to scrape top 4 if he's given money to spend this month.

      Pearson will keep Watford up.

      Ancelotti & Arteta will be there or thereabouts for Europa qualification.

  4. StayoutheSpiceZone

    Salah (c) or mane (c) this weekend? Not going Vardy, or KDB, or rash. One of the Liverpool boys ...

      Bottomed = your post was at the bottom of the page, so you're reposting on a new page.

      Bottomed out = The boat has hit the bottom of the ocean/lake/etc. You have, metaphorically, reached your lowest point. Not necessarily relevant to my post above, but it's fun to play with words.

        Ryan/Button
        TAA - Pereira - Lunds
        Salah - KdB - Maddo - Martial - Traore
        Vardy - Tammy

        Ings - Aurier - Rico

        0.1 ITB; 2 FTs

        Want to do Aurier>Robbo next week by downgrading Tammy/Martial, but don't want to lose either this week. Any better option than 'burn one'?

        Aurier>Saiss and leave Saiss on bench?

          Some suggestions

          Ryan -> Fabianski
          Rico -> Watford defender
          Tammy -> Jimenez

          1. in sane in de bruyne

            • 3 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Sorry didn't notice you wanted to keep Abra for this week. Ignore the last option.

          Yeah you don't want Aurier coming on even if he is the stepping-stone, lose him for a good B2, maybe AMN.

          1. Cricket_Badger
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Arsenal fan but I can't help thinking AMN isn't the best of picks. Better than Aurier though I'd say.

            4 months, 16 days ago

            Are there any 5.1m defs that you'd play as a one week punt over anyone currently in my starting 11?

        4. sentz05
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          I'm in the same position. Also thinking of downgrading Aurier but actually quite like him and can see potential points in him. Also going to try and get Robbo in for GW24

          1. sentz05
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            BTW don't get Sais - Wolves have awful fixtures coming up.

            1. Planet Head
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 16 days ago

              Would only be signing Saiss for one week anyway, and he'd be first sub (the only reason for the transfer would be to hold value, as Aurier will likely price drop)

        5. BobbyDoesNotLook
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          I would keep Aurier for Norwich and Watford games. One cs and one assist incoming.

          I am also taking Ryan in so that seems good.

          Pereira has great flxtures but maybe nlt worth the money.

          Maybe burn from me.

          1. Planet Head
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Yeah I'd like to keep Pereira for the foreseeable as got .4m tied up in him. Could just downgrade him to Chilwell this week instead of burning the FT but most of Leicester's attacks every week come down Pereira's side and he's generally more attacking

        6. sentz05
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          I've worked out what to do: Downgrade Aurier to cheap def this week, next week, downgrade Martial to someone like Cantwell as Martial has liverpool away, then upgrade cheap def to Robbo in 24. : )

          1. Planet Head
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            So I downgrade him to a (nother) cheap def this week and then upgrade him to a better def next week? Same as burning the FT, no? The cheap def would be benched anyway, ain't no one valued 5.1 getting in over TAA, Lunds or Pereira (...is there? Maybe Saiss for one week and play him over Traore?)

      5. Strchld
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Would it be stupid to pick Deeney over Ings?

        1. Netley Lucas
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Short-term no, medium maybe, long-term yes.

        2. in sane in de bruyne
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Not necessarily.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Could be good punt

        4. HamezMace
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Not stupid at all.
          But a punt for sure.
          If you’re chasing rank, I’d say do it

          1. Strchld
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Actually I lead ML and OR 8k.

            1. HamezMace
              • 5 Years

              Then probably best to stick with the crowd, rather than go maverick.

        Which of the following mids would you have as 4th mid if money no issue?

        Son as he’ll probably play striker the next months?

        A) Grealish

          Spurs not looking great but Son usually looks good even when his team doesn't.
          Yes, probably Son

          Cheers!

          Have Salah, Mane, Kdb.

          Will switch Rash for Ings or Ayew next Week for free, and Cantwell or Traore for one of the above.

        Stuck with 2FT for the 1st time this season - wait on Maddison news?

          In exactly same position. Trying to find a route to bringing in Robbo for 24?

          1. Cricket_Badger
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Yes but no idea where the funds will come from, ha!

            1. sentz05
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 16 days ago

              Next week, I think Martial to someone like Cantwell as he has Pool away next week. Then Aurier to Robbo ready for 24. Issue is no free transfer to use this week ...

              1. Cricket_Badger
                • 7 Years

          David for me.

          Nope. Mahrez getting time and he is definitely better FPL prospect. A bit pricier but worth it if starts getting regular time

          1. pumpkinhead
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Hard to tell if he'll get the start this week

        3. HamezMace
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Great player, but not worth the price in FPL.
          Maddison, Grealish etc, returning more points in the price, and they’re rotation proof.

          Is it for free?
          Even so, I’d probably still hold Rashford for Norwich.

              I don't want to see them go but they've been poor - I'm a Villa fan so that probably doesn't help their chance (on my end)

                Big month for the Villa.
