Mané outshines colleagues as defensive issues continue to plague Liverpool

Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth

  • Goals: Mohamed Salah (£12.8m), Sadio Mané (£12.4m)| Callum Wilson (£7.4m)
  • Assists: Mané, Virgil van Dijk (£6.6m) | Jefferson Lerma (£4.8m)
  • Bonus Points: Mané x3, Salah x2, van Dijk x1

Normal service was resumed on Merseyside as Liverpool edged ever closer to the Premier League title with a tighter-than-it-should-have-been win over Bournemouth.

After defeats in the league, the FA Cup and Europe, Jurgen Klopp’s side had lost their unbeatable swagger, and a spirited first-half performance from the Cherries prompted a sense of unease around Anfield on more than one occasion.

The home crowd reached peak nervousness early on when Callum Wilson (£7.4m) opened the scoring for the visitors, from a Jefferson Lerma (£4.8m) assist, although the goal had more than a whiff of controversy about it.

For those of a particularly anti-Reds bent, the term ‘LiVARpool’ has been trotted out every time they’ve felt the powers that be at Stockley Park have favoured the league leaders this season, but there was no such generosity on offer with the Wilson strike.

The Bournemouth striker seemed to have given Joe Gomez (£5.3m) a decent shove in the back in the build-up to the goal, but VAR decided not to overturn referee Paul Tierney’s decision to wave play on and the goal stood.

The Cherries came close to doubling the lead when a Nathan Aké (£4.8m) header from a corner forced Adrian (£4.0m) into a save that was effective, if unconvincing.

But when Jack Simpson (£4.0m) came on for Steve Cook (£5.0m), who looked to have suffered a hamstring injury, things started to unravel for Eddie Howe’s men.

Aaron Ramsdale (£4.6m) had already made a smart save from Roberto Firmino (£9.6m) before Simpson gifted Sadio Mané (£12.4m) the ball in the final third. The midfielder’s pass to Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) was a poor one, but the Egyptian kept his composure and found the bottom corner with a canny strike.

Some 111,721 Fantasy managers had sold Salah heading into Gameweek 29, while a much more modest 15,689 had offloaded Mané. That the pair punished that lack of faith was not exactly a big surprise, and Mané wasn’t finished either.

The Senegal international’s ownership had peaked at three million-plus before a Gameweek 24 injury meant he missed two league matches, and he is now in just over half that number of teams.

Those who have stuck by him were rewarded with a third goal in four matches since his return in Gameweek 26, and it was an alarmingly simple strike at that.

Virgil van Dijk (£6.6m) won possession on the halfway line, his pass forward split open the Bournemouth defence and Mané steered the ball past Ramsdale with the minimum amount of fuss.

On the balance of play, it was harsh on Bournemouth. They looked dangerous on the break throughout the first half as a Liverpool defence missing both Alisson (£6.2m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.0m), who Klopp described as “something between rested and injured”, struggled for solidity.

The Liverpool boss added that his left-back should be fine for Wednesday’s Champions League game with Atletico Madrid, but that will be cold comfort for his 20.6% ownership in FPL, even if the Reds did fail to keep a clean sheet for the third straight Gameweek to offset the pain of his absence.

With Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m) also blanking, it was left to van Dijk to deliver a decent return among the back four, with a single bonus point award helping him to a fourth six-point tally from his last six starts.

After the break, Liverpool slowly took control of the match and Mané was unfortunate not to score again when his superb first-time shot hit the post.

Firmino, meanwhile, failed to end his current barren streak in front of goal when he blazed over inside the area having been set up by Salah. The Brazilian has not found the net for six Gameweeks now and, incredibly, hasn’t scored at home all season.

At the other end, Ryan Fraser‘s (£6.8m) even longer search for a goal – he hasn’t scored in the league since Gameweek 5 – came tantalisingly close to ending, only for his effort to be hooked off the line by James Milner (£5.3m) with Adrian beaten.

The stats – Liverpool had 14 attempts, with six on target, to Bournemouth’s six and three – suggested an equaliser would have flattered the Cherries, and Liverpool were good enough, just about, for their win.

But even if they are far from the all-conquering force of the pre-winter break, their immediate schedule remains attractive and, crucially, includes a Gameweek 31 fixture.

As a result, holding onto their key assets, or bringing them in on a Blank Gameweek 31 Free Hit, looks decidedly sensible business, especially if Mané and Salah continue their recent form.

Klopp’s later verdict on the injury issues surrounding Robertson and Jordan Henderson (£5.4m) is another positive for Fantasy managers.

“Robbo should not be a problem; he only missed today pretty much. He finished the session yesterday and afterwards felt something, but it was then nothing in the end. Hendo was out, I don’t know exactly in this moment, but I think he will train tomorrow. If that looks good, I have to make a decision.” – Jurgen Klopp

The case for Bournemouth purchases is not nearly so clear-cut.

They too have a Blank Gameweek 31 fixture, but that’s away at Wolves, and they have a brutal four-match run to come not long after that.

Howe accented the positive in his post-match analysis.

“”We gave it a go. We started really well and looked a threat on the counter-attack.” – Eddie Howe

But his side have neither form nor fixtures to recommend Fantasy investment.

The manager also provided injury updates on both Cook and Philip Billing (£5.0m), who played the final few minutes as a virtual passenger following a knock.

“I don’t know with Steve Cook, it does look like a hamstring pull that will rule him out for a number of weeks. Philip took a whack to his back, I hope that’s just a knock rather than being anything more sinister.” – Eddie Howe

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Milner, Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Oxlade-Chamberlain (Lallana 84′); Firmino (Origi 90+2′), Mané, Salah.

Bournemouth XI (4-3-3): Ramsdale; Smith, S Cook (Simpson 19′), Aké, Stacey; Lerma (Gosling 80′), L Cook, Billing, Fraser, Stanislas (Solanke 68′); C Wilson.

          Indeed. It's a frustrating game. I play other formats now that I much prefer. Think I'll retire from fpl after this season. Been a lot it about 12 years lol.
          I did Vardy to Aubameyang -4 out of dgw fear. Thankfully kept the armband on Salah though

      It’s still early but the average FH numbers seem very poor.

    2. FOO FIGHTER

        Drops in value are great if you are backing the player to do well. It means people are selling him!

        I've got this funny feeling that Israel is going to act like Anderson Silva and get caught showboating.

        1. The Champ is here
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          He has the tendency. Has been ktfo under kickboxing rules showboating. And Romero hits like a tank. I just think he is on another level to Romero striking. If he can make it kickboxing fight and not get caught too much in the clinch or against the fence he'll pick him apart.

            2 months, 26 days ago

            Yeah as long as he takes it serious I don't think Romero stands a chance. I just wouldn't put it past Israel to start dancing or some schit during the fight and get clocked by Romero who will definitely be taking the whole thing seriously.

      Who's probably the best? Cresswell

      1. Differential (c)

        Ngakia at 4.0 looks a quality enabler.

    Which teams could have a double in GW 34?

      1. Chandler Bing
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Thanks. Very useful this but I meant teams that would have a DGW not a BGW

          One leads to the other doesn't it?

            Sorry, you asked about GW34 not future fixtures.

          2. Chandler Bing
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Not really. This tells us which games will be postponed in GW 34. The teams left will have be playing at least one fixture for sure. However, which teams in specific would have a DGW as well?

            Sorry, but I'm unaware of which BGW gets rescheduled when so it's a bit confusing.

              could be none - maybe AVL

          No idea tbh. check the calendar tab on the same spreadsheet.

    Looks like all those -8s and -12s paid off

    1. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      -16 ... 20k up but 6 players left (inc captain counts TC)

      1. Fitzy.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        A green arrow is not an indication the -16 has paid off

  23. pablo discobar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    West ham defender talk above- surely its diop at 4.3. What is it, 3 goals in 8 games?

  24. davies
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Keep Ings for one more week or sell?

    1. pablo discobar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Might sell for deeney or jota

    2. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Sell for who?

  25. MoManeTaa
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Ings + Traore -> Jota + Sarr

    how is this looking?

    McCarthy
    TAA VVD Doherty
    KDB Bruno Sarr Salah
    Jota Jimenez Auba (c)
    - Stephens Saka BWilliams

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Pretty good, Aubameyang c again?

      1. MoManeTaa
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Thought he wud be a better option than salah away to Everton.

        Who are you going with mate?

        1. HashAttack
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          sticking with Auba - question is whether to bench him 31 and keep for Nor, or sell and get in Wood and Alli

          1. MoManeTaa
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Selling him for DCL after the BGW, norwich arent the whipping boys anymore

            1. HashAttack
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              DCL could be good - expecting a tight derby. Will still to Auba for 30 and then sell to bring in Wood and Alli

              Would then just need 1 more defender to complete my gw31 11

        2. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Haven't really thought about it. May just go with Sarr, its not like obvious captaincy picks are working for me 😆

          1. MoManeTaa
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            lol true...Sarr cud be a nice pick at home after what they have done to liverpool

          2. HashAttack
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            made me go and have another look - Sarr first on the bench again but Bruno (tot) could be an option

            1. Holmes
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              Yeah, Bruno is a good shout, Spurs are conceding too many chances.

              1. HashAttack
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Problem is that it's inviting BHA to do a Newcastle and let Arsenal score 4 .... and I hate backing players against Spurs

    2. BNMC
      2 months, 26 days ago

      We have very similar teams - 8/10 of our outfielders are the same.

    3. Longlatini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nice team but would surely captain KDB ?

    7 from 7, a bottom of the barrell GW rank, a plummet in OR and a bad hangover... tough Sunday morning in the jia you household!

    1. Chandler Bing

      Wow, who even are your players?

    2. HashAttack

      I hope for your sake that Lei don't show up on Monday

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        yup, haha, would compound matters... need a goal fest in City v MUN (and my three players involved) to have any hope left

    3. Longlatini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Man City to save the GW.

        As a United support I hope it's a 6-5 win for us lol

        1. BNMC
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Bruno hattrick and I'll take it

  27. Holmes

    Will we know everything about DGW34 and 37 after GW31 i.e. next FA cup round?

    GW32 feels like a good time to clear the mess.

    1. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I can't help thinking that 34 will end up being a fairly normal week - expecting to ride it out now without chips

    2. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      do you mean wc in 32 or 33? ... 32 gives a nice two weeks to plan, but then there's players back from the international break. There could be the extra SHU fixture popping up too

      1. BNMC
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I think AVL-SHU will be moved to DGW34 (provided ARS beat SHU in the QF). Either that or it will have to be played in a midweek European night; not sure how Uefa would feel about that after it's already happened twice this season.

        1. HashAttack
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          AVL vs SHU can't sound to important to UEFA

      2. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Yeah, WC in 32. Want to build a team with full information rather than scratching my head later on, chip planning s*cks!

        Not really interested in SHU and Villa assets after this week, may add one of their defender on bench, thats about it.

        1. HashAttack
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Not keen on 32 due to LIV v MCI and players coming back from IB

          Toying with getting in e.g. PVA to carry me through to 33

  28. BNMC
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Sarr has an average of 9.2 points over his last 5 home games...

    1. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Bench Periera and play Sarr instead then?

    2. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Can he perform against average teams though? 😉

  29. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 26 days ago

    The best value attacker in the game has risen 0.1 this season! Juicy fixture against that Liverpool defence coming up too 🙂 Ayew really does merit serious consideration as the attacking enabler. From 33 he could well give me this front 7

    Mo Mane KdB Bruno Mahrez
    Jota Jim

    I've been on the brink of going Wood for ages but now I suspect he's my Jota swap as and when.

  30. lilmessipran

    Planning on bringing in Both Alli and Sarr in two consecutive weeks with FTs till gw 31..who would you rather have for next week

    A Maddison + Sarr
    B Perez + Dele

    1. BNMC
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Sarr first.

    2. HashAttack
      • 3 Years

      a) ,,,, could be red cards is MUN v TOT
