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′).

    Hi....is Brandon Williams an option?

    Think I'm going to be 0.1m short of alli to salah in gw24.

    Rico to Williams would do the trick. I'd bench Williams lpool this weekend

    Thanks

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years

      Looks that way. Young apparently joining Inter and Shaw is fat + crap.

      1. Flynny
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        From a distance you'd expect Williams to at least start some of the home games v lesser opposition.

        From what I have seen looks like a great prospect. Attacking, aggressive and a big heart.

      2. GreennRed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I'm obese so 😉

    2. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I talked about him earlier today, he's better than Shaw, I hope he becomes outright first choice when both are fit.

  2. Trophé Mourinho
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Can we all agree to do Rico>Williams some point after GW24 please, I dont have transfers to do it now, and how is that your most pressing issue lol?

    1. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Sure

    2. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I did Rico to Holgate this week with nothing to do and 2ft

    3. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year

      Sorry mate, I'm doing Doherty>Williams this week.

      Okay 😉

  3. Berbinho's Forehead

    Real vs Atletico going to pens if anyone's interested.

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Real win. Ramos winning pen.

  4. stupendous
    • 7 Years

    Keep Ramsdale? If not who for free under 5.5m?

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Leno or Henderson best options I think

      1. stupendous
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Double with Lundy though?

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Its what I have been doing most weeks. I play Lund every week and bench Henderson in hard away games.
          I have Foster who has been covering these reds. Foster is good and could be an option as well, but not sure I would want him over Henderson for the rest of the season.

          I will lose Foster after 24 for McCarthy, Henderson will have a blank week in 31 when he faces Man U. McCarthy will have Arse at home that week which isnt great, but probably cheapest playing keeper and its a home game at least to cover that blank.

          Leno could be a smart pick really

          1. stupendous
            • 7 Years

            Thanks

    2. Karhumies
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Ryan, Foster, McCarthy or Leno

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Enjoy the bench points.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Starting Dunk too.

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I wouldn’t

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        It could backfire either way honestly 😛

    3. Karhumies
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      start both

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Salah, Mane, KDB, Vardy, Maupay & Jimenez to Ings pending.
        I don't think I can bench anyone else.

        1. Karhumies
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Tough choice. Bournemouth - Norwich last game was 0-0 but if there ever is a week to start Cantwell, this is it.

    4. leo_messi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I'm starting cantwell and benching Rashford if that helps

  6. Iceball
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Ryan Button
    TAA Gomez Söy Lund Holgate
    Salah KDB Maddison Martial Cantwell
    Vardy Rashford Ings
    2ft. 0.0 itb.
    A) Downgrade Gomez and decide next week if to get Mane or Firmino
    B) Do nothing, might even burn a transfer if Rash ok.

  7. stupendous
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Keep Adama? Hasn't done anything for me since bringing in. Wanna find cash for Mahrez somehow I think.

    1. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Still playing well but Doucoure/Sarr perhaps better options and fixtures

  8. Catastrophe
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    2 FT, 1.4 ITB. Help greatly appreciated!

    Pope
    TAA, Holgate, Lundstram
    Salah, Mane, KDB, Traore
    Vardy, Ings, Rashford

    (Woodman, Cantwell, Kelly, Simpson)

    A) Traore & Rashford -> Son & DCL
    B) Pope & Traore -> Ryan & Grealish/Doucoure/Sarr
    C) Pope & Traore -> McCarthy & Moura
    D) Something else

    Was almost decided on A, keen to get Son in but with Rashfords form perhaps B or C better shout?

    Cheers

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      B with Grealish or Sarr

      1. Catastrophe
        • 9 Years

        Cheers.

    2. Major League Shocker

      B with one of the Watford players

      1. Karhumies
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        This. Foster alternative to Ryan.

      2. Catastrophe
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Ta.

  9. No Professionals
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Think I witnessed 3 of the worst epl performances I've ever seen today. Solanke, Billing and Drinkwater were simply pathetic.

    1. DA Minnion
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Frauds.

    2. stupendous
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Drinkwater was abysmal. He gets blown by by Kev and then Aguero scores and he waves his hands around as if everyone else is supposed to pick up after him. Was nowhere all match.

    3. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      That's just Solanke every game.

  10. SADIO SANÉ
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    I don't really have any faith in Maupay but those next two are pretty nice, any better options at Brighton?

    1. DA Minnion
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Brighton don't score goals.

      1. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Also too much rotation with the attacking players.

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I think Trossard might come good

    3. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Keep faith.

    4. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I transferred Dunk in for Kelly

  11. Come on you Kante
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Is Jesus to aguero a sideways move or worth doing to stop those in my league catch up especially if he keeps scoring?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Too sideways

  12. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    This seems ridiculous but hear me out.

    Would you rather have Cantwell (BOU) or Salah (MNU) start this GW?

    It’s get Salah in now (FT) or wait till GW24? He’ll be in then no matter what, barring injury.

    1. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      You must have others to bench?

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        8th attacker 🙁 he's become a home hero though.

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        No one will be marking Cantwell if I get Salah!

          • Has Moderation Rights

          Get Salah then.

      Triple pool with TAA/Robertson/Gomez or Firmino needs only 1 FT, no problem.

  15. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Begining to regret my Salah/Mané double up.

    Anyone else feel the same.

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Next 7 including a double look spectacular

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        YEah, problem is they look just as spectacular for Robo+TAA, for £5m less.

    2. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      You shouldn’t regret it, but i’m adamant that double defence offers much more going forward

    3. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Why would you regret that? Unless you transferrd Aguero out to bring one of them

      1. AndyCook
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        You are relying heavily on them hammering teams as you can’t afford as many other high points potential players and there is no other comparable team for defenders.

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          But they have the ability to hammer a few of the upcoming opponents. But then, TAA and or Roobo will also be in the points. Otoh, there are actually not that many premium players delivering atm, so many will have the budget for the mid double-up. Even Kun is risky, he can easiliy be rotated and get reduced minutes.

    4. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Not at all. Last week they got 28 points for me.
      Sometimes there are these kind of weeks when other options do well.

    5. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Yup, realistically defense double-up is probavly the best bet. But keep faith, it might suddenly sturn out to be the über differential needed at this state. But I'm trying to keep 2FT's to be able to change my mind if needed.

      1. POLSKA GOLA
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I think those with Mane & Salah will do way better in GW24 than double defence.
        Double defence is the way to go long term though. I did double defense 3 weeks ago just to save myself from overthinking GW24

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Let's see, impossible to tell in advance. One advantage of the MoMa double-up is that it's a shield in the sense that 90%+ will (triple) captain one of them, so it's a part insurance from choosing the wrong one.

    6. Goooo Rickie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Why's that? You want Bobby?

    7. Trophé Mourinho
      1 month, 8 days ago

      The only issue with it I see, is after 24 its going to be hard to lsoe one of them. I might just stick 4 a while, keeping the pair will be a differential of sorts. Captain Mane away and Salah at home

    8. Garth Marenghi

      Higher ceiling in gw24, that’s the whole point, that hasn’t changed, unless there’s an injury.

    Don't want to lose Rashford/Vardy but can't see other way to get Mane (bought Rash for 9.1 and Vardy for 9.0)

    A) Alli & Rashford > Mane & Deeney / DCL
    B) Alli & Maddison > Mane & Hayden (go 4-3-3 with a weak defense)
    C) ???

    Team right now is

    Guaita 4.0
    TAA Soyuncu Holgate Lundstram Cathcart
    Salah KDB Alli* Maddison Dendoncker
    Vardy Rashford Ings

    1. AndyCook
      • 3 Years

      Get a second Liverpool defender?

      1. cigan
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Also an option - for Soyuncu (bought for 4.6) I guess

        Could go Alli & Soyuncu > Virgil & Martial (or Robertson & Sarr/Doucore+cash)

        I really want Mane tho lol

      What did you get KDB for?

      1. cigan
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        9.6 so selling out of the question i guess

  17. AndyCook

    Pope to McCarthy or save a transfer to allow Maddison to Martial next week?

    Fab >> McCarthy tonight or wait for news?

    Not sure what is going on with FPLstats. Do they reset their estimate over night or something? He was close to rising last night?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA

      Got 2FTs fwiw

      Did it last night. Had two frees.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years

        Prefer him over Ryan with the extra 0.5 to spend?

        1. DA Minnion
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          That's what swayed it for me. Always need extra funds.

    My rival showed his 24 plans so early, and he has some differentials!
    A crocked Antonio, Mane, Firmino and VVD.

    If he outscores my Noble, Mane, Salah and TAA. My word :/

    1. Rustin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Na Rashford having a cracking season get double defence instead

  26. FOO FIGHTER
    1 month, 8 days ago

    7 changes made using my 2nd WC. Been struggling to break the top 100k. Really close so no harm risking WC early. Nothing to lose now. Actually used 2FT's yesterday and today. Guaita to Henderson and Jimenez to Ings. Kept them on the WC.

    Button to Martin
    Rico to Williams
    VVD to Janmaat
    Grealish to Mane
    Maddison to Son
    Cantwell to Fleck
    Rashfrod to Greewod

    Team for GW23

    Henderson
    TAA Lundstram Dunk
    Salah(c) Son Mane KDB Fleck
    Vardy Ings

    Martin Wiliams Greenwood Janmaat

    Triple SHU either going to pay off or go tits up.

    1. AndyCook
      • 3 Years

      I think you have spread your money to thinly personally and will quickly downgrade one of the 9M plus players

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I was floating around 100k - 300k for about 15 weeks. Then one week I jumped to 35k, I think when I captained Ings for his brace. Then I had a bad xmas period and dropped back to 100k where im treading water now. Patience I guess and I will cimb, I will be very happy to get back in the top 100k.

      Dont like Fleck, Dunk or your bench, sorry.
