Scout Notes

Alexander-Arnold’s consistency continues as Firmino unlucky to blank

Liverpool 3-2 West Ham

  • Goals: Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.4m), Mohamed Salah (£12.8m), Sadio Mané (£12.3m) | Issa Diop (£4.3m), Pablo Fornals (£6.0m)
  • Assists: Trent Alexander-Arnold x2 (£7.7m), Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) | Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m), Declan Rice (£4.7m)
  • Bonus Points: Alexander-Arnold x3, Wijnaldum x2, Mané x1

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.7m) continues to ask Fantasy Premier League managers questions about their captain armbands with his latest haul.

The right-back registered a 10-point score against West Ham on Monday night, putting up two assists and, despite conceding twice, collecting three bonus too.

Alexander-Arnold’s returns have been more reliable than any other Fantasy asset for some time, his last blank occurring all the way back in Gameweek 16, when he was a first-half substitute at Bournemouth.

Premium midfielders with appealing matches headline Gameweek 26 Scout Picks

Going back even further, the last time Alexander-Arnold failed to deliver a return (either defensive or offensive) in a match he started was in the Gameweek 13 win at Crystal Palace.

During that period, Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) has blanked in five of his starts, while Sadio Mané (£12.3m) failed to register a return in four matches that he started.

Admittedly, both midfielders found the net against West Ham but were still outscored by Alexander-Arnold and his excellent delivery into the penalty box.

The right-back was a constant source of concern for West Ham, even when the visitors were enjoying a 2-1 lead.

It was his quick-thinking that led to Georginio Wijnaldum‘s (£5.4m) opener as he whipped a loose ball into the box when the Hammers’ defence had assumed it was going out for a corner.

Alexander-Arnold then found Salah on the back-post with an indirect free-kick, went close to scoring with from a direct one and the resulting corner nearly produced an assist as Virgil van Dijk (£6.6m) clipped the top of the bar.

The England international came close to two assists for Firmino in the second half, seeing the Brazilian nod a corner over the bar before Angelo Ogbonna‘s (£4.5m) header denied him from converting an Alexander-Arnold pass into a certain close-range goal. 

“I think we passed the moment where we treat (Alexander-Arnold) like a young boy, he is just a proper member of the squad. Everybody has to contribute, everybody has to bring on the pitch what he is able to do – and the boys do a lot to bring him or Robbo in the position and save them there. I don’t want to make the performance more than it is, I am completely happy with it, but that’s how football works on the highest level.” – Jurgen Klopp

That said, Salah and Mané were still just as threatening compared to their defensive colleague, especially in the second half when Liverpool were forced to chase the game.

Salah’s Fantasy appeal has been obvious for some time, capped off with heavy backing for the Gameweek 27 captaincy, but Mané continues to force himself back into the conversation.

The Senegalese international, who lost a chunk of owners to a Double Gameweek 24 injury, arguably could have emerged with a double-figure against West Ham. He was adjudged to be offside late in the game when Alexander-Arnold flashed a ball across West Ham’s goal-line.

Back-to-back returns for Mané since recovering from injury puts pressure on those still holding Roberto Firmino (£9.7m), who now has consecutive blanks and remains goalless at Anfield in the Premier League this season.

However, the Brazilian was perhaps unlucky not to come away with something in Gameweek 27.

In the 25th minute, Firmino lined up a shot from the edge of the box, which was not too far over the bar and, five minutes later, he laid the ball off to Alexander-Arnold, who had pushed into midfield. The right-back rifled an effort back across the goal which went just wide of the post.

Immediately after the restart, Firmino was played into acres of space by Alexander-Arnold but blazed his shot clumsily over the bar.

Then, as the game wore on, the Brazilian, standing on the back-post, headed a looping ball onto the woodwork from point-blank range and was inches away from getting a touch on Alexander-Arnold’s cross which fell to Mané for the winner.

Finding himself on the Goals Imminent table for Blank Gameweek 28, Firmino is certainly due some attacking returns. He remains Liverpool’s top-scorer away from home this season, which bodes well ahead of a trip to Watford on Saturday evening.

For all Liverpool’s brilliance at Anfield, Fantasy managers should take note of how this latest win played out, though. Despite controlling the game on Monday night, Jurgen Klopp’s men were still missing something at both ends of the pitch for large spells.

They toiled going forward and were less than assured at the back. That has arguably been the case for each of their outings since the Winter Break, while the absence of injured pair Jordan Henderson (£5.5m) and James Milner (£5.3m) probably had an impact too.

Issa Diop (£4.3m) was largely unchallenged when he nodded home Robert Snodgrass‘ (£5.2m) first-half corner, and, with van Dijk out of position shortly after, Joe Gomez‘s (£5.3m) slip nearly allowed Michail Antonio (£6.9m) to capitalise, were it not for the midfielder’s heavy touch.

The Hammers continued to cause issues from corners and even went ahead in the 54th minute when Declan Rice‘s (£4.7m) square ball found Pablo Fornals (£6.0m) unmarked in the penalty area.

In giving up two goals against West Ham, Liverpool matched their goals conceded total from the previous 11 matches in just 90 minutes. Owners of the defensive double-up will certainly be hoping for an improvement at Watford on Sunday.

“Second-ball game was not good. Losing the first ball is possible because Antonio, Haller, whoever is there is just too good and you cannot win all the balls. But then the second ball, we have to pick up better. The formation was not good, we showed the boys at half-time, it just makes no sense there. And the set-pieces obviously; they were really good from them, we were not that clear in these situations and that’s how they scored the goal. So they got a little bit of momentum, or maybe they got the momentum.” – Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool managed to grab the game by the scruff of its neck when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.2m) came on for Naby Keïta (£5.8m), adding some much-needed drive and creativity to the central midfield trio. If Henderson and Milner are still out for Blank Gameweek 28, the former Arsenal man has done his chances of starting at Watford no harm at all.

“Yes, we needed that direction. Ox came on and the first [contribution] was a finish. Close, but still a finish. Next one was dribbling with a foul or not, if it was not a foul then probably we have the ball in a good position again. So, the dynamic helped, of course. Always, if you get direction in a game, our people appreciate that obviously. That helped.” – Jurgen Klopp

From a West Ham perspective, there was a lot to like about Snodgrass’ performance in both phases of play.

The Scottish international also arguably retains an element of budget differential about him, adding his fourth attacking return over the last three matches. Nicolas Pépé (£9.2m) is the only midfielder to have matched Snodgrass in that time.

Finally, much of West Ham’s good work against Liverpool was inspired by recent signing Tomas Soucek (£5.0m). Unfortunately for David Moyes, the Czech Republic international had to go off injured almost immediately after half-time.

“(Soucek) picked up the injury just before half time and it meant that he was struggling. We knew at half time and I thought he had been fabulous as well. It is a big loss to us, especially in the second half as we didn’t have an awful lot where we could tighten things up, really. I am hoping he will be OK but it looks like a groin or adductor injury from over stretching in the first half.” – David Moyes

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson, van Dijk, Gomez, Alexander-Arnold; Keïta (Oxlade-Chamberlain 57′), Wijnaldum, Fabinho; Mané (Matip 90+1′), Firmino, Salah.

West Ham United XI (4-3-3): Fabianski; Cresswell, Ogbonna, Diop; Ngakia; Rice, Noble, Soucek (Fornals 47′); Antonio, Anderson (Haller 65′), Snodgrass (Bowen 84′).

    Any gomez owners regretting not stumping up the extra mullah to get robbo or even VVD? The guy dont even go up for corners!

    1. DAZZ
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Guy in my ML went extra tight with VVD and Gomez

      1. Tony Martial
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Yes I do should’ve went Robbo!

        Oh well,his returns have been far from poor though.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I'm actually feeling bad about VVD. Robbo keeps getting returns. Will hold vVD though now. I guess his 15 pointer is on the horizon now

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I wouldn't be worried - both looked dangerous.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Yeah

    3. Kryten
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Probably More about price than actually choosing him over vvd or robbo tbf

      1. Kryten
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3 months, 2 days ago

        Price points structure*

    4. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Robbo or Vvd could easily have had 15pts or so yesterday. I don't usually notice to that extent but I still follow west ham out of habit. Amazing.

    5. LAMELA_AND_CONSUELA
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      It is almost 2 mil. difference. You can not compare 7 mil. player with 5.1 or 5.2 player. I think Gomez is tremendous asset for that price.

      1. MOTHRA
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        ^ that. Points per £ per minute Gomez is great value.

    6. Hktrader88
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Since Gomez came in he has 67 points, vs Robertson 70 points! £2m goes along way

  2. BIELSA
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Henderson - Button
    TAA - Robbo - Doherty - Soyunca - Kelly
    Salah - KDB - Grealish - Traore - Cantwell
    Vardy - Jimenez - Ings

    2ft

    Button >> McCarthy 
    Grealish >> Bruno

    Good moves?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Looks smart

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Don't love Bruno. Those fixtures are pretty awful. Would rather go for Perez or Barnes.

      Doing Perez or Barnes also opens the door for maybe Vardy > Auba later.

    After the blank,how does this sound?

    Jimi+Ings TO Auba +Jota?

    This would leave me with a frontline of

    Vardy Auba Jota

    1. Miguel Sanchez

        I have been burned by jota inwould rather have Jimi and have a jota priced midfielder

    3. BIELSA

      I wouldnt

    4. Tinkermania

        Is Traore a hold or sell?

        1. BIELSA
          • 4 Years

          Hold

        2. Kryten
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Depends as a 4th mid I would consider a small upgrade if you have a strong mid/attack with no bench fodder keep

        3. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Hold for now

          Think Harvey Barnes is a better option at that price

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        A) Grealish --> Perez?
        B) Grealish --> Barnes?
        C) Grealish --> Maddison?
        D) Auba --> Vardy?
        E) Firm --> Vardy?

            Auba with good fixtures after blank W.
            Do we think Vardy will outscore with form he is in?

            Definitely a season keeper who could destroy my rank in the future. So maybe a 2 week punt on a replacement just to have a differential

          They probably wont get 5 in a row but east get 2 or 3 out of 5

        if no city DGW in 29, Thinking about KDB & DCL out for Richarlison & Vardy in.

        Might sound a bit sideways to do DCL --> Rich but this enables Vardy and I overall think Rich will outscore DCL in the bext 4/5 GW

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year

          I'm gutted that I can't get DCL. Rather sell another cheap midfielder for Perez/Barnes

          Everyone is so keen to get Vardy in. Clearly fixture over form here. Barnes not a better choice?

          1. rnrd
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            I don't really fancy barnes tbh. I think he is a rotation risk with Perez and Ihenacho offering systems changes possibilities

      • Goooo Rickie

          I would do Firmino to DCL and Traore or Dendo to Mané. Or Rico to Robbo/VVD

            Cheers. Thoughts on Rico dendo > Doherty martial?

              Tbh I would rid of Firmino ASAP, and fill that 3rd Pool spot with one of the consistent points machines

                Firmino Rico > Vardy Robertson?

                Tbh firmino didn’t look bad yesterday and was unlucky not to score. But I know what you mean.

                  YES! This is the one I would absolutely jump on

        Which option:

        A) Hayden (BUR)
        B) Williams (eve)
        C) H.Barnes (nor) -4

        A and B have risks around their participation

        1. Goonerly
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Think C is the way to go

      • Kun Tozser
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Salah or Mane, if on a WC

        1. TONY123
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Toss a coin

        2. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          why not both?

        3. Amey
          • 1 Year

          Mane

        4. MC Hammer

          Mane

      • Goonerly
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Mahrez + Greenwood --> Armstrong & Tammy for free a good move?

        Also have Holgate in my team and kind of want him out..

      • Gudjohnsen
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        How nailed is Harvey Barnes?

        Am contemplating Grealish to Barnes for gw28 instead of Auba to Vardy because Auba is rising and sell value would be too low to get him back for gw29.

        1. Nedvěd11
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Having the same issue...
          Auba also have good fixtures and form after GW28...

        2. HarryB29
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Only players that could start ahead of him are Iheanacho, Albrighton or Praet. Imagine he starts most games

      • Rbyrne95
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Is Greenwood nailed on for Everton? have no FT but have Greenwood, Hayden, Trossard and Rico on for the gameweek with 4.4 in the bank. Honestly think a hit is less risky. May even downgrade someone to get Auba next gameweek

        1. Rbyrne95
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          *nailed on for the Everton game

        2. MC Hammer
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Greenwood and nailed on only go in a single sentence with the word 'never'. Don't trust Ole and his hype, he's been doing that since GW1

      • balint84
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        choose 2

        A) Martial
        B) Pukki
        C) Söyüncü
        D) Richarlison

      • balint84
        • 4 Years

        I f you had Vardy, would captained him this week?

        1. Gudjohnsen
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Probably. It's between him and Salah.

          Don't have Mané

        2. G Banger
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Not for me until he starts getting form back

          1. G Banger
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Also I have Mane

        3. Amey
          • 1 Year

          Nope

        4. Old Man

          • 3 Years

          Depends on OR rank. For a punt I would. Otherwise Salah

          • 4 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          If Ings had scored Saturday he'd be talked about very seriously. West ham meltdown in front of their own etc.

      • G Banger
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Got 6.2 to replace Grealish. Everyone seems to be opting for Barnes, is there an argument for anyone else in that price range?

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 2 days ago

          I'm going for Perez

          1. Wally banter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            have you checked that all perez hauls except the sou match came when vardy was not on the pitch, which might not be happening god forbid.

        2. Gudjohnsen
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Mount or McNeill.

          1. G Banger
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Know if Mount passes the eye test recently? I like the look of his fixtures and nailedness

        3. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          I'd want Perez over Barnes. He's favored vs weaker opposition and has a ton of double digit returns.

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Yep yep

        4. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Armstrong might be interesting

          1. G Banger
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Does he lose his place when Redmond is fit again?

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 2 days ago

              Yes
              Djenpo would be out.
              Redmond out for a month too. Wouldn't worry about that

        Would you bench Traore or Fernandez (Newcastle) ?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          It is not even certain that Traore will play in first place.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Hence why I'm asking the question - if he was nailed to play then it's not even a debate

        Firmino to Vardy?

        1. Stormbringer22
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Could pay off. Vardy due to start scoring again.

        2. Gudjohnsen
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Is this good enough for gw28?

          McCarthy
          TAA, VVD, Lascelles, Taylor, Williams
          Salah (C), Traoré, Martial
          Ings (VC), Jimenez

          Bench: Henderson, KDB, Auba, Grealish

          1. Stormbringer22
              3 months, 2 days ago

              If Traore actually starts, then yes.

              best midfielder option under 7.8m?

                • 9 Years
                3 months, 2 days ago

                Perez. Fixtures are good and he's a flat track bully capable of double digit hauls.

                1. Gudjohnsen
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 2 days ago

                  I'd be worried about Perez minutes.

                  1. Camzy
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    3 months, 2 days ago

                    I wouldn't. He only gets dropped against the top, top teams.

                    Prior to GW27, he had started 8 of the last 9. And only benched vs Pool or City.

                    Furthermore, he's gotten his double digit hauls vs:
                    whu, new, sou, WHU

                    Now looking at those fixtures, he's got at least one double digit haul in the next 4.

                      @camzy, same qn i mentioned to amey, have you considered that all perez hauls except sou came when vardy was not in pitch...would that sway you away from the perez punt to barnes... if not why?

                  • 10 Years
