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.

    What happens if you own 3 players from one team, then another player who you own moves to that team?

      • 6 Years

      You have 4 until you try to make a transfer. Then you will have to get rid of one

    2. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Then you have 4. But the next transfer you will have to move one of those 4 out.

    3. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      You will have 4 from the same team but your next transfer will have to be one of them out.

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

      You can play all 4 but next transfer you make has to be to remove one

    5. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      You can play all..... Oh, never mind

    6. Long ago I drew a walrus
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      So if you own 3 from one team and 2 players transfer to that team, does it force you to take a hit? 😀 (not sure this has ever happened i know)

    7. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      think you might be able to play all 4, not really sure of the rules though

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

        not really sure who would know that either

          Everyone but you and the OP know 😉 The first four replies are correct

          1. SADIO SANÉ
            • 4 Years

            yeah I know 😉

      I seem to remeber a couple of years ago people getting Mahrez in when it looked like his move to City was on and having 4 City, but before the game updated his team. Ultimately, didn't go well.

      Are you referring to anyone in particular?

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

    For next GW (DGW24), would you do:

    A) KDB out, Mane in
    B) Vardy + Grealish out, Mane + Deeney in

    Really don't want to lose KDB, as think he could do well in the fixtures beyond GW24.

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Not A but don't fancy like Deeney pick

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

      Get Gomez as the 3rd Liverpool player

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      B of those.

  3. Maddamotha
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    What to do here? 2FTs 0.3ITB

    A) Guaita > McCarty/Ryan
    B) Targett > Holgate/Williams
    C) Jimenez > Ings

    Guaita
    TAA, Soy, Lundstram
    Salah, KDB, Martial, Maddison
    Vardy, Abraham, Jimenez

    Button, Dendo, Rico, Targett

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

      might look at getting Gomez in for DGW, otherwise i think Holgate. Although looks like Rico has been benched

    2. Moose™
      • 7 Years

      Soy to Pool def imo

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 2 Years

        This.

      2. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Was the plan next week. Will downgrade one of Jimenez, Abraham, Maddison or Martial for that. Just have a transfer to burn now. Dont wanna go double pool def against United as I own Martial as well.

    Whatever came of that incident a couple of weeks ago where a manager had 4 x LIV assets on FH chip?

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

      they patched it, think they removed teams that tried to abuse it but not sure

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…

        FPL Towers really are killjoys.

  5. dmkp

    Which one?

    A. Rashford
    B. Mahrez (can cope with Pep roulette)

    1. Moose™
      • 7 Years

      A. More nailed. Pens. Ole cant afford to drop him

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Rash

  6. Pigeon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Gomez or van Dijk for the double and or and a while longer for their great fixture run?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      VVD

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

      Gomez, for me, cheaper and id be suprised if he will be rotated considering the correlation between him starting and clean sheets

    3. Moose™
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      A imo

    4. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years

      I went for Virgil a few weeks ago for nailedicity and not changing now, but would go for Joe if I could do it again.

    Hi All, what should i do?

    Gazza* Button
    TAA Gomez Lund Kelly Rico*
    KDB Mane Martial Traore* Cantwell
    Vardy Abraham DCL

    5.1 ITB!!! 1FT

    Talk to me about a -4 hit even when its not really needed.

    I currently have 3 players i need/want to change but it is likely ill want to change more (Abraham > Ings etc) in the coming weeks so will always be a week or 2 behind my preferred transfers. is taking a -4 hit worth it?

    Thinking Rico & Traore > Mahrez & Holgate.
    Could alternitively get Aguero in for Abraham and forget Ings and Mahrez

    any thoughts greatly appreciated

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I'd just fix Gazza and/or Rico this week.

  9. Pigeon

    Thoughts on replacing Grealish with a Watford player after Bournemouth?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Doucoure?

  10. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    As we chatted about on previous page, from GW24 to GW28, Firmino will likely have 2 extra games to Vardy (LEI likely to blank in 28)!

    Vardy - WHU (H) CHE (H) WOL (A) MCI (H)

    Bobby - WOL (A) WHU (A) SOU (H) NOR (A) WHU (H) WAT (A)

    Only one winner there so can see the appeal of Vardy to Firmino next week!

    1. Moose™
      • 7 Years

      Thanks a lot for this. Need some differential to climb up the rank.

        You're welcome Moose, I'm taking the risk of selling him this GW but to help fund Salah and Mane in and don't feel anxious at all about tbh despite the fact he could hurt me v Burnley this GW!

      Actually even chances of returns as two of those Liverpool games are at home 🙂

        Haha, perhaps! People laughed at me selling Vardy after the weekend but think lots will come around to the idea in coming days...trail blazer me 😉

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Looking at it especially if Leicester blank 28. Just a question of whether the United double in attack is worthwhile.

          Other option is Mahrez but that could be tricky holding KdB through 28

    3. GOTHAM City F.C.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      How about the games Bobby will be dropped?

    Kind of stuck....

    What would you choose guys?

    (a) Martial + KDB + Firmino
    (b) Mane + KDB + Greenwood
    (c) Mane + Martial + Deeney/Maupay (no KDB)

    Already have Salah...

  12. Legohair
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Is KDB to Mane next GW silly move? My others pool players are Salah, Trent... Or get Firmino/Robbo instead?

    1. Moose™
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      KdB is a mainstay imo

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

        this. As you will see above im a big advocate of getting in Gomez or the DGW

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Not silly imo

      You can always do Kevin to Mane and then Salah/Mane to Kevin if required

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Go Robbo

      If you go Gomez then you’ll likely use another transfer down the line to get Robbo. The fixtures are plum and you’ll want the strongest triple up possible for the foreseeable and looking just at 24 could hurt you

    4. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Keep Kevin, he's got the magic.

    5. Legohair

      Well these comments didnt help, it still mane, firmino or robbo. Currently leaning mane...

    Was all set on Soyoncu to Robertson, but may well have to have a think about Tammy to Firmino next week. Good problem to have!

          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Yeah once i get firmino in for gw24, i feel like giving him the TC, either him or mane

    Can randy play this weekend? He's been out for ages right

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      The alternatives are Martin and Boberto though

  17. HUATSHOOTER

    1 month, 4 days ago

    Anyone bench grealish for this gw too?

    1. Long ago I drew a walrus
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I screwed up and have a huge benching headache for this week and next, so yes, benching Grealish this week.

    2. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      unfortunately yes, playing Cantwell

      1. HUATSHOOTER
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Same here!

    1ft and 0.8itb, am I best to save or sort out Pope/Rico/Kelly?

    Pope
    Soy Lund TAA
    Grealish Mane Salah Sarr KDB
    Vardy Maupay

    McGovern, Rico, Greenwood, Kelly

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Pope to anybody else first

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

        I feel its a luxury move and one to do when having 2ft in my pocket. Eyeing up McCarthy

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Your set with 3 Liv already and Burnley in relegation form.
          Get McCarthy and put the change towards getting yourself something nice.

  19. Stamford Bridge

    Ryan
    TAA/Lund/Soy (Rico) (Kelly)
    KDB/Mane/Salah/Grealish (Hayden)
    Vardy/Ings/Jim

    1 FT and Zip ITB

    Would you advise this GW.........

    a) Rico or Kelly to Stephens
    b) Grealish to Sarr
    c) Roll FT
    d) anything else

    I'm leaning towards b atm. What do you chaps think?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…

    save FT for the DGW? or make some moves now?

    ryan
    soy lund aurier

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…

      Save.

    2. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Nice team but don’t trust pep. Not sure on airier and Zaha too

  21. n14mul
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Afternoon everyone,

    Which would be the better pick for the next 4- 5weeks?

    A. McCarthy & Dunk
    B. Ryan & Stephens

    Thank you

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

      A

    2. kuzser
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      b

    3. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Think both cost the same too

    4. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Cheaper one, if there is one.

  22. jacklfc88

    Wondering to WC as Fabianski injury has screwed me, Aurier wasting a spot, need to catch up and do something different.

    At the moment I am looking at:

    Foster (McCarthy)
    Digne TAA Lund Dunk Williams
    Salah KdB Richarlison Sarr Fleck
    Firmino Ings Jiminez

    1.0 ITB

    Appreciate losing Vardy is a risk but for DGW Firmino better. Can always revert to Vardy if he comes back to form.

    1. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I like it only issue for me is Jimi. Think that spot could be used better

      1. jacklfc88
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Yeah where do I go though?

        Wanna keep most of my £1.0m ITB in case Vardy does go on a spree and I have to bring him back; saying that, using my WC this week gives me 2FT for following week and beyond so I could free up some funds elsewhere if needed.

      2. jacklfc88
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Tammy maybe? Bad fixtures but returns in last 3...

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Pretty good. No Utd attack or plan to get any?

      1. jacklfc88
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        I have Martial currently. Moved him for Richarlison. Can't afford Rashford...

  23. Evasivo
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Benching Lord Lund this GW, feeling nervous

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Just breath. I'm sure like most of us you have benched him for hauls before so not the worst thing in the world if it happens again.

  24. quayle99
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    I have space for one more Liverpool next week.
    I can afford:

    A. Alison
    B. Gomez
    C. Hendo
    D. Wijnaldum
    E. Ox

    Currently thinking Alisson might be best bet, almost guaranteed to start both

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      B then A. C - E a waste.

    2. KDB4PREZ
        1 month, 4 days ago

        A if you really can’t stretch to VVD

      • n14mul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        If it’s out of these then Ali or Gomes. They won’t get you big points but they are steady and may get you bonus points

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

      Which one for DGW?

      A) Ryan Button

      Kelly Soyuncu TAA Lundstram Sidibe

      Maddison Salah KDB Grealish Cantwell

      Vardy Firmino Ings

      B) Ryan Button

          Hey folks, first time player and have all my chips but tempted to use the TV on Salah for the DGW. Should I been holding this chip for a better opportunity or is this the time for it? Tia

              Many are going to use TC on Liverpool mids, it's an option

              Go for it. By the time the next dgw's happen the season will be almost over and rotation rife

              • 2 Years

              Uncle Albert's right and TC least valuable of the chips anyway if it doesn't work out.
