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.

    How does this sound?

    Tomori > Trent
    Alli > Son
    Rash > Maupay
    For a -4

    Don't really want to lose Rash but really want Trent and Son.

      rashford out - no from me

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…

      Why Son over Rash? Didn't Moura play up front last week?

      1. mcsteely
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Fair question. Son looks like their most attacking option and is always looking to score, even with Moura on the pitch (who is also a good option)

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Rather have Rash. Looks to me like Spurs have gone through all 5 stages of Mourinho in record time.

    Maddison to Mahrez for free?

    Have Vardy still. Gives a mid of KDb Mahrez Mane Sane

    1. stupendous

      Salah not Sane (though he is back in training!!!)

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…

    Is this a silly hit to take this week to free up the funds I need for next week?

    Guaita & Targett -> McCarthy & Williams

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…

      If you need the money to get treble Liv then yeah, might as well do it now.

        Good squad. I'd do Button to Martin as he could play dgw

                Damn, thought Martin was 4.0 still.. Kelly to Lascelles an option if you think it's an improvement.

        2. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Kelly to Williams as final def?

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

        A) Mane, DCl, Egan
        B) Ings, Son, VVD

        Am i right thinking A could outscore B gw24, but if i want to improve my squad long term i should go B?

        Cheers

        1. Bucket Man
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 10 days ago

          My dilema as well. B long term A GW24

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

            I'm provably going B, i have focused too much on dgw:s before and ignored in form players with single gameweek fixtures.

            1. pitstop1
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              You’re probably right but the only one of those players who could go nuts over the next few weeks is Mane...

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

                True, feel like A is two downgrades and one upgrade. B for me would be 3 upgrades. Son against Norwich could go nuts too.

                1. pitstop1
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  That’s true - I’ve sacrificed all Spurs to go Salah and Mane which could be unwise.

            2. Bucket Man
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Good point, good games for Rash and Maddison etc GW24 as well. I've a few options below what do you think?

        2. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Did I say B yesterday?

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

            Yes, option B above was option A yesterday though. Just checking if you're awake.

      3. Goat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 month, 10 days ago

        Start one please:
        A) Gomez (MUN)
        B) Lundstram (ars)

        After typing it out it seems A is obvious. Interested to know others thoughts? Cheers.

        1. Bucket Man
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Be tempted by B if you have TAA/Robbo

          B. Attacking mid against an Aubaless Arsenal

          1. BNMC
              1 month, 10 days ago

              ARS being Aubaless doesn't necessarily mean SHU will score more goals.

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                No but it means SHU could concede less

          2. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 2 Years

            Joseph Dave Gomez. 0 - 0?

        3. BNMC
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Playing Cantwell is so tempting this week with BOU's poor defense as of late. Though they could be better with Ake back.

            Does he warrant a start over Alli or Grealish?

              WC to this? Kevin in Kun out for starters and do something with extra funds.

                Quite hoping Kun gets a bit of run now.
                Was one of the reasons I activated wildcard...

              Would rather have Trent & Ings in for Vardy if you want a non-template team.

                Was thinking about ditching Vardy, but don’t feel completely comfortable about it.

                  Trent more essential than Vardy imo. Ings is great value

                    Agree about Ings.
                    He is amazing value...

                    I know, but I were to go non-template I'd stick with TAA, KDB, Ings and fill the rest with differentials...

                That seems a popular consensus, yep. Is he a trap though? Heard he doesn’t look all that

                  No idea but i like the Watford form as a team at the moment

                    Fair enough, cheers. And him rather than Doucoure I take it too

                      It depends if Doucouré stays in the number 10 role he played on Sunday instead of his more usual double pivot position (Chalobah played there against Bournemouth). Coin toss if he stays further forward. Sarr if he plays further back.

              Tough between B and A. Grealish the best player and good fixtures but poor team. Sarr looks exciting and in a improving team with mixed bag of fixtures.

            Order these for next few weeks please. Can't do A if Ramsdale is out and B gives me a free transfer extra.
            A) Ramsdale, Soyuncu, Mane, DCL
            B) McCarthy, VVD, Maddison, Rashford
            C) Ryan, Robertson, Maddison, Abraham

              Same as my thoughts above. A gives you Mane, BC gives you a balanced long term squad.

            Is doing martial > Richarlison or mahrez worth it with Man U playing Liverpool feel like being aggressive and making the move could be rewarded

            1. Hakim Ziyech
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Not for me. Martial is pretty consistent

            2. Hakim Ziyech
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Also depends on when you got Martial as he is cheaper & the extra can be used elsewhere

                I’d loose 0.1 if I did it

                  Utd have a good fixture in gw 24 too & long term + it is not as if Anthony isn't doing the job you want him to do.

                  Mahrez is rotation prone & Richarlison is a fraud imo

                  1. Fulchester's New Centr…

              DOubt Palce will get rogered like Villa did and look at who Utd have coming up after Liv.

              I was thinking of sticking this week, and doing one of the following for GW24:

              A) Martial, Maddison and Abraham OUT > Mané, Ings and Cantwell IN (-4)
              B) Abraham and Maddison/Martial OUT > Firmino and Grealish IN
              C) Rico/Kelly and Martial OUT > Robbo and Grealish IN

              What do you reckon?

                • 2 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Like B or C, but not necessarily with grealish. Only Bournemouth and Norwich are worse than Aston Villa

                • 9 Years

                Tammy to Firmino
                Maddison or Martial to Sarr

                A. Hit could pay off this week.

              Sell Maddison or Martial?

              Have Vardy and Rashford if that makes any difference in your thinking...

              1. danlynch13

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Maddison I think, martial playing oop and Maddison is likely to have the blank in the near future

                    GW28

                    Could yet be Villa who blank of course. If it’s Leicester then it’ll be a test of people holding Vardy and KdB for value

                      So someone like Firmino could have 2 additional games over Vardy in this time?

                A) Doucoure. But Sarr is also good.

                B) Haven't seen them play. He did hit the woodwork vs Everton.

                C) Rico. Meh defense.

                  Rico looks like hes lost his palce, but if wins it back has good fixtures (i know its still bournemouth who are woeful at the moment!)

                  Targett currently injured, no idea if he's nearly back or not. If he is then is he better to keep?

                    Salah has played 4 PL games vs ManU, hasnt scored or assisted yet.

                    Should it affect our decision as whether to bring him in now or just for DGW24?

                    Other option for me is to punt on Sterling (C) for one GW. Then go to Salah. Sterling has scored 5 goals in his last 6 vs Palace in the PL, fwiw. But will he start?

                      Overthinking. Just do it.

                        Do what? Bring Salah in now?

                        No City one week punt then?

                          Yes. Salah now or fix somewhere else in your team. Forget Sterling.

                    So with my 2FT before the Liverpool double:

                    Pope (McGovern)
                    TAA - Soy - Lund - Rico - Kelly
                    Mane - Kdb - Martial - Traore (Dendo)
                    Abraham - Vardy - DCL

                    6itb

                    A) Traore + Abraham > Son + Firmino
                    B) Soy + Traore > VVD + Son
                    C) Soy + Traore > Williams (Or any max 4.1) + Salah

                    Currently leaning towards A, but no Salah for DGW is scary. Current rank about 60k, like the idea of a bit of a differential in Firmino..

                      Go with your gut. Son and Bobby "could" be immense.

                        Its those quote marks around could that make the decision hard!

                    Has news of Matip and Lovren being back in training killed off Gomez as an option?

                    As a Liverpool fan I want Gmez to keep his place, but its not guaranteed and we have no way of knowing before the dgw..

                      Surely his place to lose though and means Trent might get a rest now.

                        Nah i dont reckon Gomez will play RB again, hes CB or nothing in my mind now!
