Recapping the best Liverpool players ahead of FPL restart

Runaway league leaders Liverpool come under the spotlight as we continue our team-by-team recap ahead of the Fantasy Premier League resumption in June.

Initially looking back at the six Gameweeks before the suspension of play in mid-March, we will also highlight wider, season-long trends as we run the rule over the red half of Merseyside.

It doesn’t take a genius to deduce who the obvious candidates are but settling on the right combination of players from Jurgen Klopp’s side is an ongoing process.

Is Sadio Mane (£12.5m) preferential to Mohamed Salah (£12.7m), for example? And can Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) ever get close to Trent Alexander-Arnold‘s (£7.8m) output?

We turn to the data in the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area as we delve deeper, so only subscribers can access the article in full.

    Does getting Raz instead of Mane makes sense just for DGW ??
    Can swap Raz out for Mane next GW with FT.

    1. lilmessipran
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Probably

      Depends on how much value you have tied up in Mane

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        28 days, 5 hours ago

      1. Akshatjazz
        28 days, 7 hours ago

          • 3 Years
          28 days, 7 hours ago

    Leno

    Salah Sterling KDB McGinn
    Agüero Aubameyang

    1. mikess
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Grealish is a must for me. I'm not feeling the Villa defence at all

      1. in sane in de bruyne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 6 hours ago

        Will into it, thanks.

  5. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    Did up a quick FH draft, thoughts?

    Leno
    TAA / Egan / Stevens
    Bruno / KDB / Mahrez / Pepe / Fleck
    Aguero / Auba
    (Fodder, Villa, Villa, Fodder)

    1. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      For me, Grealish just has to be a starter in every FH team.

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        yeah, I guess he could come in for Fleck just not convinced Villa will be an attacking threat

      2. ppv
        • 9 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        Captain for me

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          28 days, 6 hours ago

          Wow, I'll put him in for Fleck but captaining him seems crazy...he plays for Villa 😉

        2. Amey
          • 1 Year
          28 days, 6 hours ago

          Wow

    2. mikess
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Fleck to Grealish

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        Cheers

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      G2G
      Grealish IN as suggested by everyone 😀

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 6 hours ago

        its sensible advice but watch Fleck outscore him now 😉

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          28 days, 6 hours ago

          Fleck plays in almost similar LM/LCM too i guess ..
          © Fleck everyone now !! 😀

          1. jia you jia you
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            28 days, 6 hours ago

            I have Fleck in my team already so its annoying removing him for Grealish on FH as there is a chance he outscores him!

    4. Ian & Zen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      IMO Sheff Utd defenders will out score Fleck, and cheaper

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 6 hours ago

        Yeah, I'm punting on triple SHU defence now instead, cheers.

    When will we have some friendlies games results?

    1. jia you jia you

      Training game from OT on Sunday:
      Team A. 4 - 4 Team B.
      Pogba, Rashford(3)
      Bruno(2), Martial, McTominay
      (Pogba & Bruno also grabbed 2 assists apiece)

      1. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        28 days, 6 hours ago

        Thanks! I need Bruno in my team. Will change Grealish to Bruno after the double.

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          he stays in my team even on FH 🙂

  7. Exeterslowly
    • 4 Years
    28 days, 6 hours ago

    Hi and apologise if this had been answered. I am in the middle of making a number of unlimited transfers. However I have a FH left no wildcards. So if I now click on the FH button to change my team to suit double GW 30+, will my team revert back to The team I had in GW 29 or the team I have now with the unlimited transfers I have made since GW29. Please advise

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      your unlimited transfers would all be cancelled and you'll revert to your old team in GW31

      1. Exeterslowly
        • 4 Years
        28 days, 6 hours ago

        Oh right. Thanks your the man!

  8. bigbudgie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    28 days, 6 hours ago

    Had City players in my team as a differential for the Arsenal game at the restart using FTs during the haitus...all that irrelevant now with unlimited transfers and the DGW....Aguero (c) for every man and his dog?!

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      Nope
      I can't get Aguerooooo
      I am going to settle down for Raz KDB

    2. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      I feel your pain BB! I took a -12 for the phantom DGW and I've no WC or BB. FPL towers have given me little chance of improving my miserable season!

  9. Jullepuu
    28 days, 6 hours ago

    What should be my chip strategy when I have the free hit and the bench boost left but no wildcard?

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      Depends upon squad completely.
      If squad is in good shape, FH this GW & roll out with the squad for rest of the season.

      If it isn't, use unlimited FT'S this GW & play BB. FH can be utilised later

      1. Jullepuu
        28 days, 6 hours ago

        I don't think that this is good enough for a free hit this gw

        Krul Pope
        TAA Doherty Egan Gomez Taylor
        KDB Lucas Salah Sarr Foden
        Jimenez Jota Wood (5.2 in the bank)

        Agree?

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          28 days, 6 hours ago

          I think I'd hold FH and use FT's to get a good squad going forward. Just like WC & BB next GW.

          1. Jullepuu
            28 days, 6 hours ago

            Cheers! Is BB a good idea for this game week? Can we be sure about which players start the games?

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              28 days, 6 hours ago

              Well, i think this will be the only GW when I'll be sure about players starting 😀

  10. Mufc202020

    Advice needed for FH

    Henderson (4m Keeper)
    Alonso Luiz Stevens O’Connell (Lascelles)
    KDB Sterling Pulisic McGinn (Hayden)
    Aguero AUBA (Nketiah)

    Thanks!

    1. jia you jia you

      triple Chelsea?

      1. Mufc202020
        28 days, 6 hours ago

        Only 2 chelsea players, but against a Villa team that loves to concede goals

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          28 days, 6 hours ago

          sry Luiz caught my eye as Chelsea lol...you might be dead right too, Chelsea to batter them 5 nil wouldn't be a surprise to me!

      2. Amey
        • 1 Year
        28 days, 6 hours ago

        He clearly Don't rate Villa highly 😀

        1. jia you jia you

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      Why such heavy duty Chelsea?

      1. Mufc202020
        28 days, 6 hours ago

        Villas last 5 games they have conceded a total of 12 goals. Conceding atleast 2 every game

  11. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 6 hours ago

    Henderson
    TAA / Egan / Stevens
    Bruno / KDB / Mahrez / Pepe / Grealish
    Aguero(C) / Auba

    That'll do!

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      Is this a straight team or WC?
      Hendo does not play in 31 so do you have another keeper?

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 6 hours ago

        It's FH mate, Pope will be back in 31 🙂

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I like the side. I hope Mahrez and Pepe work out for you

          1. jia you jia you
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            28 days, 6 hours ago

            punts for sure but my season is well screwed now anyway so will just play the season out for fun

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      or free hit?

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      looks good, I prefer Sterling over Mahrez and Pepe but still two good options.

      1. jia you jia you

    Have WC, BB and FH chips left.

    Should I FH GW30+ this team?

    1.8itb 2ft
    Pope Ryan
    Saiss TAA Steph Lasc Williams
    Mane Salah Bruno KDB Traore

    How's my BB?

    Leno, Henderson
    Doherty, Baldock, Stevens, Fernandez, TAA
    KDB, Mahrez, Ozil, Grealish, D Luiz
    Auba, Aguero (c), Long

    0.3 ITB

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 5 hours ago

      If you want to use bb get something out if it. You will have Hendo who does not play following week and half mil tied up in a keeper on the bench then on in. Stevens and Fernandez with 2 villa going forward who are tfrs waiting to happen? Not worth it with that side unless you have chips to get out of it

  14. Warby84
    • 4 Years
    28 days, 6 hours ago

    I’m really happy with this bench boost after lots of tinkering...

    Ederson Leno
    Basham Egan Trent Doherty Targett
    Sterling De Bruyne Fernandes Cantwell Grealish
    Aubameyang Jimenez Nketiah

    1m in the Bank for sterling to Salah next GW...

    Any thoughts??

  15. olidooley
    • 7 Years

    Sterling cap for me. Brilliant differential

    1. jia you jia you

      short memories on here, he's had a dreadful season 😉

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        but cracking differential as a punt I agree!

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          28 days, 6 hours ago

          Okay
          I'll stay On Auba© but punt on Raz 😀

    2. Amey

      +1

    3. Warby84
      • 4 Years

    I'm in a weird situation, having WC but no FH, What to do?

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      laugh at how lucky you are having unlimited transfers, thank to FPL Tower's lack of integrity, and a WC in your back pocket!

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        28 days, 6 hours ago

        No 2nd WCer spotted

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          28 days, 6 hours ago

          Yup, no wildcard plus don't have the benefit of unlimited transfers as I pretty much like my squad from 31 onwards so don't want to make changes for the sake of it and not be able to reverse them easily later. Many teams got out of jail, others got buried I guess can't please everybody eh 😉

          1. DantheManinaPan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            28 days, 6 hours ago

            Definitely a bummer for you - but I do reckon this decision suits a lot more people

            1. jia you jia you
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years

              yeah, likely does alright mate

    2. Amey

      First of all, be happy 😀
      You've 2 WC available now

  17. RD
    • 9 Years
    28 days, 6 hours ago

    Any Strategy who have all their chips intact?wht is the strategy ?should i target week 30+ with a BB or a TC chip?

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      Bb this week WC next week

      FH AND TC later on

      1. RD
        • 9 Years
        28 days, 5 hours ago

        Yes don't know when to use the other two ..what abt this strategy

        TC - Week 30
        Wildcard may be 32-33 and bench boost immedaitely after wildcard and free hit may be week 38

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      Pre-GW 30 deadline = Use unlimited transfers and set up for BB.
      GW30 = BB
      GW31 = WC
      FH = ?????
      TC = ?????

  18. diesel001
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 6 hours ago

    Are FPL player prices locked until the restart?

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 6 hours ago

      Yes

  19. DantheManinaPan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Anyone looking at Rashford?

    1. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL

      That a 4-3-3 right ??
      Interesting formation.

      I have gone exactly opposite. Cheap as chips with defense except Taa

        Going to BB 🙂

        Tweaking it now. Willing to lose a little value in Mane and Jimi. Will buy them back next GW on WC

    Hi guys,
    any idea when the season ticker will be updated?

    I find it very hard to plan my team strategy without it

    Any others on here now playing the fantasy game based on CM01-02?
    The second half of the season starts tomorrow with new players joining and old teams being transferred to the new website.
    It's really cool with loads of resources, streams, vids, fixture statistics by Ben Crellin etc.

    Do you think this team needs the unlimited transfers or is it good enough just to free hit?

    Leno Pope

    Trent Doherty boly lascelles Taylor

    Salah KDB Fernandes Sarr Hayden

    Auba DCL Jota

    Looking like a FH I think, RMT please?

    Leno
    Stevens / O’Connell / Egan / TAA
    Sterling / KDB / Grealish
    Kun (c) / Auba / Lacazette

    My team would then revert back to:

    Pope
    TAA / Saiss / Maguire
    Salah / KDB / Bruno / Martial / Son
    Jiménez / DCL
    McCarthy / Ayew / Fernandez / Tanganga

    I’d still have BB intact and just look for a prime week to play it with one or two transfers to help along the way (no WC)

    Thanks!

      Good imo.I hope Bruno martial Son don't hurt you 1st week

        Could easily happen in all honesty. Suppose it warrants the question of how good a DGW actually is

      I'm looking at something very similar - just Ozil for TAA (lol)

      Good way to roll the dice for the restart - pretty high upside there with 11x DGW players wouldn't be a massive stretch to get 100+, particularly if we kick things off with a 0-0 in AVL-SHU & then a goal fest in MCI-ARS

    I have no value tied up in kdb at all. Selling price is 10.6

    With that in mind Sterling or KDB for bb ? (followed by wc)

      KDB has this season developed into a kind of non-negotiable FPL team member in my mind, kind of like TAA - he's a cut above the vast majority of most of the players he encounters on a weekly basis & it shows

      Rumours of the effect of his beer belly on his FPL points may prove to be greatly exaggerated

      If he keeps taking penalties even moreso

        Oh yeah forgot he was on penos too. Hmm i think youre right about the rest too thanks

    GK Ederson, Leno
    DEF TAA, Targett, Baldock, Mings, Egan
    MID Salah, KDB, Grealish, Fleck, Saka
    FWD Aguero, Auba, Jiminez.

    How's that looking for BB next gameweek with wildcard to follow week after...?

    .3 in bank so could maybe Henderson over Leno and an Arsenal defender for 4.9 or 5.4 or an Arsenal mid for 5.3...

    What do you think of this strategy?

    - Use unlimited tranfers to set up for DGW30+ AND GW32+
    - then FH in 31+
    - Play your GW30 team in 32 (with one FT available)
    - WC in 33+ or 34+

    advantages: you can use your liverpool and city assets before the titles and the UCL race are wrapped up for them (presumably they'll be playing full strength until then) and then ditch them to jump on players playing for UCL qualification and / or relagation battle with a much better view of the battling team and key/fit players when wildcarding ?

    Okay so looking ahead what are we thinking with VVD,Salah and Mane etc ? Once they win the league is it worth re investing in players who have something to play for ? Such as Man Utd, Spurs assets ?
