The case for Firmino in a Liverpool triple-up for Double Gameweek 24

Fantasy Premier League managers should consider Roberto Firmino (£9.3m) as Double Gameweek 24 edges closer.

That’s when Liverpool play two fixtures in one Gameweek, travelling to Wolves and West Ham in the space of six days – and many of us are still working out which type of triple-up to invest in.

Going into Gameweek 23, the worldwide ownership figures tell us that the offensive and defensive double-ups are likely to be given equal consideration at this stage:

  • Virgil van Dijk (£6.4m): 40.1%
  • Sadio Mané (£12.4m): 40.0%
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m): 38.8%
  • Mohamed Salah (£12.3m): 25.4%
  • Andrew Robertson (£7.0m): 19.6%

The two prevailing options in the FPL community thus far are a Mané/Salah double-up or one involving both Alexander-Arnold and Robertson.

However, sitting at just 9.6% ownership, Firmino should not be overlooked as an alternative route into a Liverpool triple-up.

In this article, we are going to analyse the Brazilian’s underlying data from recent matches and compare him against other Liverpool options.

As this uses data from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area, only those with Membership can access it in full.

Do Liverpool’s fixtures warrant an attacking double-up?

Before comparing Liverpool’s attacking assets, it seems wise to examine the defensive data of their Double Gameweek opponents, if nothing else, to check that they are as brittle at the back as we need them to be.

As both Wolves and West Ham will be playing at home in Double Gameweek 24, we have assessed them over their last four matches played in front of their own fans.

Last four home matches

As you can see, we get quite mixed results from the two teams.

West Ham look considerably more vulnerable to Liverpool’s attack as they have conceded 30 shots in the box over their last four at home, only five sides shipping more efforts there.

However, by comparison, Wolves have allowed just 18 shots in their home penalty box over the same period, one fewer than Liverpool and bettered only Sheffield United (16) and Manchester United (13).

Last four home matches

When it comes to the quality of chances being given up by either defence, the gap is even bigger.

As you can see, only Aston Villa (17) have conceded more big chances in their last four at home than West Ham (13).

As for Wolves, their five big chances conceded is the third-best in the league and bettered only by Southampton (three) and Manchester United (two).

However, the expected data for Wolves’ last four home matches shows they should have conceded 3.12 goals but, let in five. Across the whole season, their expected goals conceded (xGC) figure sits at 25.31 but Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have actually let in 28.

That may be why Wolves have only kept two clean sheets from a possible 11 at Molineux.

This data seems to be consistent with the theory that Wolves are continuing to earn their reputation for clean sheet ‘nearly men’ i.e. a team that often boasts decent defensive figures but has a hard time converting these into concrete shutouts.

Furthermore, in four home matches against last season’s top-six in 2019/20, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have conceded 10 times.

It, therefore, seems likely that Liverpool will find a way to break through Wolves’ defence in Double Gameweek 24, even if they may not thrash them, which seems a fate they may spare for West Ham.

The Hammers may be in the early stages of a new (or perhaps, we should say ‘returning’) manager but, based on recent performances, they may have to work miracles to improve in time to face Liverpool, especially with their goalkeeper situation so uncertain.

Either way, it looks unlikely that West Ham will make life too difficult for Liverpool in Double Gameweek 24, especially as the Reds have scored four times in two of their last three Premier League visits to east London.

How does Firmino compare with his colleagues?

In short, the answer is very favourably.

For some time now, Firmino’s underlying statistics have been competing very nicely with both Salah and Mané which should turn the heads of Fantasy managers considering his cost.

We’ll start by looking at how Firmino has fared over the last four Gameweeks.

Last four matches

During this time, the Brazilian has shot 13 times in the box, more than any of his colleagues.

In fact, during this period, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.9m), Danny Ings (£6.8m) and Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) are the only players in the whole of the Premier League to have registered more efforts inside the penalty area.

As you can see, during this period, Mané has managed 11 penalty box shots in 339 minutes while Salah has just nine in 338.

Last four matches

Firmino has also been in a favourable position when it comes to the quality of his chances since Gameweek 19 too.

The five big chances he has been afforded in this time is the joint-best among Liverpool players, level with Mané and three more than Salah.

Furthermore, this total is the joint-second-best in the Premier League, only Jesus (nine) handed more big chances in his last four outings than Firmino.

Last four matches

Mané is the most accurate of the Liverpool options over their last four matches, registering six shots on target.

However, Firmino is only one behind the Senegalese international with five of his own, the same as Salah.

How does Firmino look on the road?

While the Brazilian has compared very favourably with his colleagues over the last four matches, he really comes into his own when we change the parameters to last four away matches.

It is a well-documented and bizarre fact that Firmino is yet to score a Premier League goal at Anfield this season.

However, he has still been finding the net on his travels, all seven of his league goals coming away from home – particularly pertinent considering that both of Liverpool’s Double Gameweek 24 fixtures are on the road.

Last four away matches

With the filter switched to last four away matches, Firmino goes further clear of his team-mates when it comes to the above goal threat statistics.

During this period, he has registered 13 shots in the box, six big chances and seven efforts on target. He has been converting too, scoring four goals in these matches, more than any other colleague.

Meanwhile, Mané has 11 in the box, four big chances and six shots on target and Salah sits further below that on 11 shots in the box, two big chances and five shots on target.

Last four away matches

When it comes to creativity, there is more parity between each member of Liverpool’s front-three during this period.

Over their last four away matches, Firmino, Mané and Salah have each played eight key passes, although the latter is the leader for big chances created (three).

Last four away matches

The expected data combines all of that information to tell us just how much consideration Firmino deserves compared to his colleagues.

Over the last four away matches, Mané has the best minutes per expected goal involvement (xGI) with a score of 108.3 but Firmino is not too far behind on 117.7.

That figure is good enough for him to be just ahead of Salah on 119.8.

Conclusion

Firmino stands every chance of matching Salah and Mané’s output in Double Gameweek 24.

With Wolves and West Ham looking likely to concede in their meetings with Liverpool, Firmino’s recent performances indicate he can be involved in making that happen.

Both over the last four matches and his last four away trips especially, the Brazilian has produced some incredibly encouraging underlying statistics.

For example, it looks as if he is just as likely to assist as Mané and more likely to score than Salah based on the numbers we have seen.

It must be said that the gap between Firmino and his two attacking colleagues is not necessarily that huge, especially as his goals are worth one less point and he cannot benefit from clean sheets either.

Therefore, it’s hard to say that he is necessarily the vastly better option regardless of cost.

However, Firmino’s valuation, at present roughly £3.0m lower than Salah or Mané’s, is the key factor here.

With the ownership figures of Salah and Mané somewhat intimidating, some Fantasy managers may feel the pressure to put their teams under major surgery to get both of them in.

Naturally, this will almost certainly result in some hits to accommodate the swapping of premium options and may, of course, mean sacrificing Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m), who has averaged 8.8 points over the last six Gameweeks.

However, with Firmino offering an opportunity to match his more expensive colleagues, he presents a less painful route into a Liverpool attacking double-up.

For example, those in possession of Tammy Abraham (£7.8m) and some cash in the bank may find Double Gameweek 24 an ideal time to upgrade to Firmino – as Chelsea face a resurgent Arsenal, Leicester, Manchester United and Spurs between then and Gameweek 27.

Crucially, if opting for Firmino over Salah or Mané allows Fantasy managers to avoid a hit for Double Gameweek 24, when hits may well be quite common, it could even put them in an advantageous position before a ball has even been kicked.

    Who would you lose for Bobby:
    a) Rash

      Neither.

    4. CONNERS

      Either could easily outscore Firmino in GW24 despite the DGW.

      I've done A to enable Mane, but I still have Martial so I've not lost Utd attack entirely

    6. HMC

      Exactly my dilemma
      Hoping I can put this decision off for as long as possible
      Tempted to lose Vardy myself although don’t have much value tied to Rashford

  3. The Fed

    Need help to decide which 3th Liverpool player to get in for DGW.

    Kasper

      Probably will but getting less confident about it the closer we get to the dgw. Bit meh. Mind you, Fabianksi injury makes it a bit more appealing.

      I'm probably going for it as think its as good a time as any.

      Will be hoping for rotation in the FA cup game

    8. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Big team in form and league leader with DGW, no UCL games, nice fix, a week break between games (less risk of rotation).
      Could it be even better?

      1. Warby84
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Salah on penalties..

    9. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Liverpool have one one 20 of 21 games this season; games a week apart; yes.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 2 Years

        won

  8. Big Ping
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Morning all, to get Salah by 24, I need to lose one city mid soooo,

    A. KDB Holgate 4.7mid
    B. Silva Digne Sarr

    I'm tempted by B as I would only lose .2 from Kevin, but then I am losing Kevin...

    Or C. Chilwell to Robbo

    Thoughts?

    1. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Assuming u have Mane/TAA then C

    2. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      B looks nice but, as you said, lacks KDB.

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      C

    4. Big Ping
      • 2 Years

      Thanks all, C does seem sensible then hope Salah doesnt go off...

  9. DAZZ

    Would you consider Maddison, Rico, Greenwood > Cantwell, Gomez, Ings?

    1. DAZZ

    If you own both and will TC in 24, which one and why?

    A) Salah
    B) Mane

    1. Chelsea91
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      hold

    2. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Salah for me. i'm chasing in mini leagues / have a poor OR so bigger upside

      1. Konstaapeli
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Would you go with Mane if you were leading your leagues?

        1. ShaunGoater123
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Mmm i'm not sure. It's a bit early for defensive moves, but that being said if you feel confident that people chasing will be doing that then it would nullify them so definitely has merits.

          How far ahead are you? If minimal then go for who you think scores more, if a healthy lead and confident they will be doing that to make ground then i would go Mane aswell

          1. Konstaapeli
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            I've 60 points lead. Most have Mane. None other have Salah atm. Still I'm temped to go with Salah.

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

              There's a reason they have Mane.

            2. ShaunGoater123
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              yeah tough one. If they go Mane and you don't, it could potentially wipe out your lead in one swoop.

              BUT, as i say its a bit early for defensive moves so i would go for your gut and who you think will score more. Play your own game and see.

              Worst case it goes belly up and lead is slashed, but you have plenty of time to build it up again.

              Alternative is you hold the TC for a later week. If they use it you then know where you stand and still have yours to use at another point which will have them worried about it. Sometimes it works out to make your rivals play their hand first

              1. Konstaapeli
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 12 days ago

                Yep. And Salah haul would most likely win me the league. Still have FH and WC to cover the blanks and doubles later.

                1. ShaunGoater123
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 12 days ago

                  yep very true.

                  good luck!

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

      I have Salah. I would TC neither because they're away to Wolves and a West Ham managed defence in a team where there's plenty of attacking threat to eat their points. If I had both I'd pick Mane.

    4. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Salah. More explosive, better form of late, on pens, lower ownership

    5. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Had Salah perma cap for a while now but probably Mane TC. Demonstrably better away form.

    6. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      A for me.
      Think he is a bit more explosive, has pens and back to his good form.
      Im "Salah team" anyway as always was his fan.

    7. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Mane - away form.

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Recent away form says Salah though. 22 from last 3.

        Not a lot in it and Mane missed Bournemouth but also swayed by 3 double digit returns in last 6 for Salah

      Salah, similar threat but on Pens

    9. DantheManinaPan

      • 6 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Salah - mainly from looking at points projection models (members area, fplreview, foomni), all of which predict him outscoring Mane

    10. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Salah if Milner still injured, penos

    What's the best way of using next 2ft?
    0.7itb

    1) Rico Grealish-> ROBBO Hayden
    2) Grealish Jimi -> FIRMINO Hayden
    3) Grealish Jimi Rico -> VVD Martial Greenwood for -4 (effectively bidding on Martial outscoring Jim for 4 points in gw24)
    4) Rico Alli -> GOMEZ Martial
    5) Rico Jimenez -> VVD Maupay

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years

      I like 4 - 2 clear upgrades

    2. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      5 followed by 4.. Think VVD has a lot more chance of returns at both ends than Gomez, Maupay plays a struggling Bournemouth

    I applaud the spirit of looking at Firmino as an option - as it's good to see the acknowledgement that 'there is a way' to go without Salah & Mane, which you would sometimes struggle to see from the groundswell of opinion on the discussion board over the last weeks...

    But it's still hugely interesting (to me at least!) that all three blue chip Liverpool defenders have actually outscored* Firmino... even in this mad environment where Liverpool only kept 2 cleansheets in their first 15 games

    (*Ok VVD is on 98 to Firmino's 100 - we'll not fall out about 2 points 🙂 )

    The answer to "Shall I have double Liverpool attack?" has widely been: Depends on your TV. So now I ask, what do you think is roughly the minimum TV your team needs to allow a double Liverpool attack and not affect the rest of your squad?

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Mine is less than 102.5 but have still managed to get a decent XI. Only concern I have is lack of flexibility in other positions, otherwise it shouldn't be an issue.

    2. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Depends more on the remainder of the team you pick than TV.

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Where there is a will, there is a way - should be doable unless maybe your TV is still 100.

    General thoughts on Aguero, are we expecting more rotation?

    1. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      i think it's a given that their will be rotation.

      I have Aguero so enjoyed his points as captain this week, and will captain him again this week. But looking to move on for 24 to allow Liv double up but also as the fixtures come thick and fast again so rotation is inevitable.

      Can always look to get him back a few weeks later if it looks settled.

    2. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      It's Pep. Of course.

    3. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I guess he will start vs Palace, after that you can expect rotation.

    4. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Not for Palace but perhaps against Blades next GW

    5. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      City seem to have gone up a gear and Kun can score decently even in a 10/15 minute cameo.

    6. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year

      It's Pep

  20. DantheManinaPan

    Play three (including at least two defenders):

    1. Lundstram ARS (A)
    2. Soyuncu BUR (A)
    3. Holgate WHU (A)
    4. Martial LIV (A)
    5. Cantwell BOU (H)

    Initial gut feeling was to bench Martial and Lundstram but wondering whether that might be a bad idea...

    Ryan / Button
    TAA / Soyunco / Stephens / Kelly Lundstrum
    Salah / Mane / KDB / Grealish / Cantwell
    Maupay / Jiminez / Vardy

    Happy this week, but considering Jiminez + Maupay => Rashford + Greenwood for WK24... and move to Ings WK26

    b) Don't do it
    c) Do this instead...

    Hey everyone! Need advice on wildcarding this week. Is this any good?

    Current team:

    Mccarthy
    Soy, TAA, Sidibe
    Mane, Martial, KdB, Grealish, Maddison
    Vardy, Rashford

    Button, Lund, Greenwood, Rico
    0FT, 2.7

    Projected WC team:

    Mccarthy
    Lund, TAA, Digne
    Mane, Salah, KdB, Doucoure/Trossard
    Vardy, Rashford, Ings

    Button, Cathcart, Dendoncker, Williams
    0.2/0.0 ITB

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

      A - should I wildcard to have Salah, Rashford and Ings for GW24?
      B - Trossard or Doucoure for 4th mid?

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I wish people would stop WCing teams much better than mine.
      Doucoure if you are going to do it.

    Going Firmino over Mane or Salah whiffs of trying to be too clever, and this is coming from someone who loves Bobby to bits.

    1. Hy liverpool
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      o/

    2. DAZZ
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Going with Firmino with one of Salah/Mane and TAA is a nice differential route. Firminos away form is no coincidence.

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        His stats are better than salah and mane away from home too but it's a risk i know

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Agree - had Bobby towards the a*se end of last season for similar reasons; didn't end well.

  28. Link

    • 9 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Which pair for the next 3?

    A. Rashford + Trossard
    B. Maupay + Maddison

    Very likely either striker becomes Ings in 26 (I don't want him for next 3 fixtures so not an option)

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
