Firmino’s fine away form continues as Double Gameweek 24 draws near

Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Liverpool

  • Goal: Roberto Firmino (£9.3m)
  • Assist: Mohamed Salah (£12.3m)
  • Bonus: Firmino x3, Alisson (£6.0m) x2, Joe Gomez (£5.2m) x1

Liverpool’s relentless march to their first Premier League title continued with a battling win at Spurs.

Luck has played a part in a few of the Reds’ many victories this season, and it was in evidence again in north London.

Roberto Firmino‘s (£9.3m) winning goal, from a Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) assist, involved a masterful combination of quick feet and precision finishing, even if it only came about because the visitors were wrongly awarded a throw-in.

But any claims that Jurgen Klopp’s side only won thanks to Tottenham Hotspur’s profligacy in front of goal would be to ignore the excellent opportunities Liverpool also spurned.

Firmino had already seen one fine chance blocked by debutant defender Japhet Tanganga (£4.0m), with the follow-up strike from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.2m) hitting the post, before the Brazilian broke the deadlock.

And chances came and went for Virgil van Dijk (£6.4m) and Sadio Mane (£12.4m), while the latter forced Paulo Gazzaniga (£4.6m) into a fine save and substitute Divock Origi (£5.2m) also tested the keeper late on.

That being said, Tottenham did have two outstanding chances to rescue a point as Jose Mourinho’s men took the game to a tiring Liverpool after the break.

Son Heung-min (£9.8m), back from his three-match ban, blazed over when set up by Lucas Moura (£7.1m) and Giovani Lo Celso (£7.3m), who had replaced the ineffectual Christian Eriksen (£8.6m), somehow contrived to miss the target from two yards out following a superb Serge Aurier (£5.0m) cross.

A draw would probably have been the fairest result as Spurs out-shot the league leaders 14-13, although the Reds did have six attempts on target to their opponents’ four.

But none of that will bother the legions of Fantasy managers who have Liverpool defenders in their teams, with many of them now doubling up on a backline that has kept six clean sheets on the spin ahead of a long run of excellent fixtures to come.

A home match with Manchester United awaits next week before they’ll embark on a nine-match schedule of very attractive games, starting with a Double Gameweek 24 involving Wolves and West Ham, both away.

Small wonder that three of the six most-owned defenders in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) – van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) – are from Liverpool, although it was the fourth member (and cheapest) of the backline, the 2.9%-owned Joe Gomez (£5.2m), who earned a bonus point at the new White Hart Lane.

Further up the pitch, Mane blanked for only the second time since Gameweek 9, while Salah kept his 25.2% ownership relatively happy with a second successive return, although managed only one shot – an off-target one, at that – all match.

Instead, it was left to Firmino to shine, with the Brazilian scoring his seventh away league goal of the season (more than Mane and Salah combined) – a stat worth bearing in mind considering that the Reds are on the road twice in Double Gameweek 24.

His display prompted much praise from Klopp:

When I went to him and wanted to give him a hug after the game, he wanted to stop and talk first. He said, ‘I know I should have scored more goals’. It was absolutely not what I wanted to say! Yes, a super player, super. I don’t say this for the first time and will hopefully not say it for the last time. Pretty impressive.

While Liverpool remain in the best of places, Spurs’ performance was good enough to suggest their current league form – just one win and a draw from their last five matches – could be about to take a turn for the better.

Mourinho attempted to stifle Liverpool’s attacking threat by playing three centre-halves and Tangana’s performance as one of them – and later at left-back when Danny Rose (£5.3m) was subbed off – was impressive enough to suggest he could be a real bargain if given more pitch-time over the rest of the season.

The coach was certainly happy to praise the 20-year-old after the match, saying:

I’m really proud of the kid and I know that everyone in the club is happy, because he showed composure, very good personality and playing Salah and Mane is not the same thing as the players you play in the Under-19s, and the kid was very, very good. A game for him to remember, of course, the result to forget.

Tangana’s time might be now, or it might be later. How to offset the loss of Harry Kane (£10.9m) will be of more immediate concern to Mourinho.

He was quick to dismiss Talksport’s post-match suggestion that he might delve into the transfer market to find a replacement for his star striker, which should elevate the Fantasy prospects of Son as an out-of-position striker.

Spurs’ upcoming fixtures are a mixed bag, with good matches against Norwich, Aston Villa and Burnley balanced out by visits from Wolves and both Manchester clubs and a trip to Chelsea.

Even so, there would seem to be enough potential in those games for Son’s 6.4% ownership to rise in the near future.

Investment in Dele Alli (£8.7m) is not so clear-cut. The midfielder missed one good chance on Saturday and has now blanked in all but one of his last six starts – a run that has persuaded enough managers to make him the third-most sold player heading into Gameweek 23.

As an alternative, the continuing rehabilitation of Erik Lamela (£5.7m), who came on for a third straight cameo, could add a different brand of attacking threat to the midfield.

The Argentinian started the season with two goals and as many assists from the first five Gameweeks and could well be due a start now after a ten-game lay-off.

That move would definitely be a risky one, however, so if it’s sure-fire investments you’re after, Liverpool remains the best place to look.

Tottenham Hotspur XI (3-5-2): Gazzaniga; Tanganga, Davinson Sanchez, Alderweireld; Aurier, Winks, Eriksen (Lo Celso 69′), Alli, Rose (Lamela 69′); Lucas Moura, Son.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson; Oxlade-Chamberlain (Lallana 60′), Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah (Shaqiri 90′), Firmino, Mane (Origi 80′).

    Highest owned WHam player is at 4.8% and a bench fodder. No damage from their options in the DGW then. Could be huge if it pays off tho, big if.

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…

      I can see something against Leicester maybe - but is it worth a transfer in and out?

      1. Zilla

        Don't think it is unless they haul big.

    Vardy -> Agüero is the one I think

          True but his fixtures aren’t all as easy as Villa, and he’s a rotation risk

          Could pay off though

      Depends if for one week or a prolonged period.

      Mane, Salah, and TAA is a huge % of your budget.

    Is Ings vs Wolves a good captain pick? I like Ings and the amount he shoots he could be bracing every game. I dont think his finishing is always great so maybe his stats are buffed a bit, but he has too be a good choice this week.

    Not sure about Salah and KDB, they could be tight games, and Vardy idk my gut says his form will go.

    Anyone else going Ings?

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 29 days ago

      He’s a good captaincy shout for sure

      Scores against everyone

      Probably will get injured soon though, but what a run it’s been, delighted for him

    2. tambourineman
      • 6 Years

      He's never going to be in better form, Wolves could play 120 minutes on Wednesday night as well

    3. Trophé Mourinho

      thanks thats all the reassurance I need 😀

    Would you wildcard this lot?

    0ft 3.4itb

    Ramsdale*-Button
    TAA-Lund-Soy-Rico*-Kelly*
    Mane-KdB-Mahrez*-Maddison-Cantwell
    DCL-Vardy-Ings

    Already did Jimi-Ings which means I can't get Salah in for GW24 unless I take a hit or sacrifice KdB which I really don't want to do.

    Or do I just give up on the Mane Salah double, save the wildcard and bring in Robbo for Rico?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years

      Not worth wc

      1. Better Call Raul

        What would you do with the highlighted players?

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 29 days ago

          Bench the defenders. Nice 343 or 352 there, just wait for Bmouth news on Ramsdale. Button to Martin could be an option if Ransdale not long term.

      Great team.

      Would be tempted by Kelly to Holgate, though Everton's fixtures take a turn in a few weeks time. Dunk is a decent option too.

  8. Gudjohnsen

    Average 55?

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 29 days ago

      top 10k is 60, overall is 57. Im at 103k with a 180 position climb with 61 points

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Real average is more.

  9. DAZZ
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 29 days ago

    Rashford > Ings wise? Not only does it allow funds for Mane for the Midfield double up, Ings is bang on form. Only downside is so is Rashford. 4 nice fixtures after Liverpool. Really torn on the move. If i held Rashford this upcoming GW and Ings bangs one in again, i’ll be kicking myself

    1. Ser Davos
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 29 days ago

      All things considered, I'd make that move. Worry about Rashford post 24

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 29 days ago

      Rash already has 7G 2A in the league this season against his next 8 opponents, he’s got pens & DFK’s

      Very dangerous sell imo, senseless almost - but like any individual move, it’s notnguaranteed to fail (or succeed!)

      Rashford AND Ings looks very advisable

      1. Walcoff life
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 29 days ago

        This

      2. DAZZ
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 29 days ago

        I know i’m struggling to bring myself to make the move, Rashford has really impressed me, it’s a break out season for him. Call me mad, would Vardy > Ings be advisable?

    3. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 29 days ago

      Rashford -> Ings facilitates Rico -> Robertson.

      But should I be taking a hit?

      1. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 29 days ago

        Super confused.

    6 months, 29 days ago

    Dean Smith on the chopping block next?

    1. Walcoff life
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 29 days ago

      I think Howe

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 29 days ago

        I dont think Bournemouth will have the balls to sack Howe, and if they do they will leave it too late when its beyond hope and pray Big Sam can save them. Im certain Bournemouth go down this season if they dont get rid of Howe soon.
        The players have been trash I know, but there is too much quality in that squad to go down. Ake, Wilson, King, Fraser, Hilson, a better manager will get them firing. Wilson even played for England a while ago his form was so good, wtf happened.

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 29 days ago

      Possibly. But what do Villa expect? They have Championship players (other than Heaton, Mings and Grealish) in the PL and are not a defensive team.

    3. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Howe, another 6 pointer this week.

      No. Who expected them to even draw with City with an injury-hit team?

      Now that’s a tricky one. B then you have a more expensive defender if you want to make a transfer. You don’t want to be changing a keeper to make money or get a similar priced keeper

      1. NorthernMan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

    Who would you TC from Salah and Mane in GW24?

    Expect Mane EO close to 200% and Salah below 100% in top 10k.

      Ah now. Did you rate Dunkirk highly?

      1. Ser Davos

        I enjoyed that too, yes.

        Would probably put 1917 marginally ahead in the pecking order.

        1. GreennRed
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 29 days ago

          I watched Dunkirk on a telly and prob much better experience on a cinema screen. Lovely camerawork and very early hours of the morning but wasn't holding my attention too much. I think I'll prefer 1917, but in a cinema fully awake.

    Get Richarlison or wait and see if Son hits form? Getting Gomez for GW24.

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 29 days ago

      I’ve Alli & I’m leaning towards Rich - no Europe will be a bonus when CL starts up again soon

      Waiting to see how midweek games go first though

      1. GreennRed
        • 8 Years

        Cheers Max. No point in not upgrading Traore for GW23 with Richarlison hitting a bit of form.

    If Mark makes it into the Top 25k by the end of the season it will be a remarkable 2nd half of the season performance.

    1. GreennRed

      Who's Mark?

      1. diesel001

        No.2 in the FFS Career Hall of Fame:

        1. GreennRed
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 29 days ago

          I know who he is. Class FPL player alright. Just wonder why his team selection occupies headspace. He could have a season off his usual high form like some footballers.

          1. diesel001
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 29 days ago

            Of course he could. And if someone like Aguero or Kane did similar in real life football there would be a lot of talk about it. So in the FFS space, Mark (and Sean T as well) are getting coverage.

            1. GreennRed
              • 8 Years
              6 months, 29 days ago

              Fair point indeed. Just prefer to make my own mistakes, I'm good at that!

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 29 days ago

      His worst ever rank was 192k - I’d say hell try to make sure he betters that first & foremost

      Squillions of points still to play for though, spike a good FH in a DGW, Good TC & Bench Boost & you can fly

      Let alone just making a good captaincy call (e.g. Kun this week)

    With Brighton playing Villa and Bournemouth in next 2 is DCL to Maupay worth a free transfer?

    Points per minute, Mahrez is right up there.
    Shame about the minutes

    Sterling to salah now or wait a week.Likely to be a 0.2 price swing which may affect future transfers

    Best forward for 5.7 or under?

    1. ItOnlyTook9Years
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 29 days ago

      Ayew

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 29 days ago

      honestly, Greenwood.
      Who else? You can keep an eye on Kelechi, Maupay, Ayew, Long and Tosun but all gash in reality.

      When the choice is that bad its probably when you need to consider a formation change, or a Greenwood/defender rotation. Green isnt a bad choice tho, just hoping to play him every week is unrealistic.

  27. The Royal Robin
    • 5 Years

    On my WC, which combo do you prefer?

    1. Robbo Holgate Maupay
    2. TAA Sidibe Greenwood

    To give context, if I went with 2 I wouldn’t start Greenwood but is 1 worth sacrificing a bit of quality to warrant the option of Maupay to come in now and then?

    We are spoilt for centre forwards this season.

    Cannot remember a season where there has been so much choice

      Yep, a joy.

    Went ahead and played my 2nd WC. Made 7 changes and gone for something really different. I am close breaking into top 100k. Have been struggling for many weeks. Sitting at 118k so hopefully playing my WC pays off. Have a 2nd playing GK and double UTD bench lol. Hoping Janmaat is also straight back into the Watford team as soon as he is back from injury.

    Fingers crossed!

    Son my ultra differential pick. Spurs form no good but he is a damn fine asset to own.

          Consider adding Sterling - a sure starter.

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            6 months, 29 days ago

            No thanks. Benced today and points per match is awful compared to others.
