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.

    Can I do unlimited transfers and then use my wild card?!

      You can make unlimited transfers ahead of GW30+ and your second Wildcard (if it's still intact) can then be used from GW31+ onwards.

        Sorry I didn’t mean wildcard! I meant free hit! Can I do unlimited transfers and then activate my free hit?

        1. Skonto Rigga
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 3 Years

          Nope!

          Yeah but the transfers won’t count, it will revert to GW38

        3. Nightcrawler

          2 months, 1 day ago

          Youll go back to the team u had pre lockdown/ the one u have right now before naking that transfers

          In other words all your unlimited transfers pre FH will be lost

          1. Mufc202020

            Ahh very annoying! Thanks all!!

    Are you starting with a FH?

    A. Yes
    B. No
    Either way, which Pool players are you planning on having?

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B
      TAA

    2. ZoumasBloomers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No, TAA only

    3. I Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No. TAA and Salah/Mane.

    4. Mince n Tatties
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B
      None (Bringing back Salah & Mane in GW31+ WC)

    5. TwiggsJameson
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A, and proud

    6. Little Red Lacazette
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B
      TAA and Salah

  3. james 101
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    I’m probably going with A

    I’m keeping Salah and TAA. Maybe Mane too. Unsure on him.

  4. ZoumasBloomers
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    I’m going to lose all my TV but do wonder how much I’ll want it for the run in. Wing backs and wingers now look much more risky, and a lot of teams will have nothing to play for.

    Low TV might not really matter

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Points over TV

  5. davies
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    1) Should I go with the cheapest possible bench if using FH?

    2) If not using this week, when’s the next best time to use BB?

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Why would you use FH? It’s unlimited transfers

      1. Pieterke30
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Because his team is good and he doesnt have any WC left?

        1. davies
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          This

          Hendo Pope
          TAA Alonso Lund Saiss Taylor
          Salah KDB Bruno Barnes Cantwell
          Auba Jimenez DCL

          Happy with this lot for the start of the run in

      2. Ron_Swanson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Because he wants to get a team for the DGW and is happy with his regular team.

  6. ZoumasBloomers
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Anyone considering going in with Ederson and Leno for the double? Cheaper to afford Egan and O’Connell for example to cover SHU

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Im thinking leno and reina. Laporte over ederson?

    2. Pieterke30
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No. Hendo for sure. With Ederson or Reina.

    3. I Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      That's exactly what I'm going with. Ederson + Leno + two SHU defenders.

      1. Warby84
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yep and me with O’Connell/Egan Trent and Aarons

    4. Bury94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I'm on Leno and Henderson atm with BB active

  7. sirmorbach
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Lads, is it good? Still have my WC, will bench booost on GW30+

    Leno / Pope
    TAA / Egan / Boly / O'Connell / Lascelles
    Salah / KDB (c) / Bruno / Grealish / Saka
    Auba / Jiménez / Samatta

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Where is Aguerrrooooo

    2. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I like this team. Your team value must be great, I'm 1.5m short of affording anything like this. Am building towards something similar but with Nketiah instead of Samatta and Reina instead of Leno.

      1. sirmorbach
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Very good to hear that, mate, I do appreciate it

    3. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      1 x City? Not for me.

    4. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Downgrade Salah and Bruno and get Aguero

      1. sirmorbach
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Salah and Jimmi out, Mahrez and Kun in? Trouble is I'd lose .2 selling Salah...

        1. POLSKA GOLA
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I’d do it

          1. sirmorbach
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Thanks a lot, mate, I do appreciate it!

  8. RamaJama
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Worth using FH if I will loose 1.3 mill. if I want the same players, TAA, Mane, Salah, Jimenez and Vardy, back on WC for next GW?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Who will you deem to score riots instead?

      1. RamaJama
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        In dgw? Sterling, Grealish, Kun and Stevens

        1. Geordie19
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Transfer values become less important as weeks grow

          1. RamaJama
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Just that I’ll have 1.3 mill to spend on WC in GW 31

            1. Geordie19
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              I guess go with what you think is better.
              A fh this week and you keep value for wc
              Or use the Unlimited tfs for bench boost.
              Higher point ceiling for the latter but less value for you.

              I’d go with the lower value as when you wc you may go with rash son Kane etc as they have something to play for or relegation teams..

        2. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Tough probably I will FH rather than struggling to bring back the longer term players on WC. Are we going to have better GW later to use FH?

    2. Jimmers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      You won't lose 1.3m if you use FH - you get the players back and there are no price changes before the gameweek 30+

      1. RamaJama
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        But these players will cost me 1.3 mill more to buy back on WC in GW 31

        1. Jimmers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          But if you're using FH you will start GW 31 with the squad you had started GW 30 with - you're not really selling them

    3. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Points over team value surely. Only Pool player I’m keeping is TAA because I think he can outscore any DGW defender. Jimi will most likely go as well.
      You may want different players back on a WC. Rashford and Son are knocking on the door as well

  9. james 101
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Is the unlimited transfers confirmed?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Apparently

    2. Bees4Lyf
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Log in and see, it looks like it

      Decent.
      Is Otta going to play?

  11. Amey

    Repost
    I have reshuffled my pack with UNLIMITED FREE TRANSFERS 😀

    Henderson
    Taa Eagan Siass
    Mane KDB Bruno Grealish
    Auba© Vardy Jimenez
    3.9 lascelles Luiz Taylor

    I am keeping my FH in the bag for a rainy day.

    How's she looking 😉

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Nice team, Mane v Salah conundrum as usual ...

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Bro.
        I sold Salah for mane to get 0.2 to upgrade Stephens to Egan 😀

        Good to see you

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Ok cool I haven’t touched my team as yet and Salah is there. Only realised it’s open just. Happy shovelling 😉

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Ha ha

    2. I Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Looks good but remember Henderson can't play in GW31 because he's on loan from United.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Wow 😮
        Thanks for the heads up

  12. Jon Walter's Hatty
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Anyone for Traore as a SGW punt? Think I'd get more out of him than say a McGinn...

    1. I Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Difficult to know if he will start.

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        True. Not a great deal in the sub 6m range.

  13. Revival
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Thoughts on having the likes of Saka, Nketiah or even Mendy for a DGW benchboost? Need some cheap DGW players and would also like a Man City defender.

    1. I Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I'm probably going to get Nketiah. I know he won't start both and might not start any but he should get some minutes and at 4.4m I like what he enables the rest of my squad to be.

    2. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Nketiah and D Luiz for me. 4.4 each, allows me to get 5-6 big hitters in.

  14. Nomar
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    More Salah cap fail in FPL. Should’ve kept Mane on WC on Saturday night.

  15. King Kohli
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Would you be happy with this squad for gw31+ (week after dgw)?

    Pope Hendo
    TAA Gomez Egan Basham Taylor
    Salah KDB Bruno Traore Cantwell
    Jiminez DCL Jota

    6.2 ITB. Only FH & BB left

    A. Yes, play FH this week
    B. No, make a fresh team with free transfers and BB

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      BB after WC is best. This is a WC.
      So I'd go with BB.

  16. 1912 F.A Cup Winners

    2 months, 1 day ago

    Sorry repost form earlier.. would appreciate a little advice as to what Plan I should take moving forward folks, I did a slow wildcard to get my team as it is now for a strong bench boost, NO WC left but have FH, TC and BB all left!! What do you think my best strategy would be?? Many thanks in advance.....
    Henderson Pope
    TAA Doherty Boly Lundstram Fernandez

    Suggestion for BB team for 30+ gameweek:

    Ederson/Pope
    TAA/David LuizBasham/Egan/Aarons
    Salah/KDB/Grealish/Sakha/Cantwell
    Auba/Aguero/Mousset

    is this an accurate template?

  18. Kung Fu Football
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Team for DGW30 with 12 DGW players and using BB, looking to WC the following week, any thoughts much appreciated, thanks :

    Hendo
    TAA / Laporte / Egan
    Salah / KDB / Grealish / McGinn
    Auba / Aguero / Nketiah

    BB sub bench of... Leno, Fleck, Targett, Lascelles.

    1. I Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Very nice. Almost the same as mine only differences being Ederson, Stevens and Douglas Luiz instead of Henderson, Laporte and McGinn.

    2. Noah’s Ark
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Same front 3 I’m currently looking at. Not so much the rest.

      1. Kung Fu Football
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        What are you doing with your Pool players? Keeping due to TV like me or no? Thanks.

        1. Noah’s Ark
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I’m thinking of ditching and just bringing back in Salah only after

    3. lord_trumpington
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Don’t expect much from McGinn. Will take a few games to get back in to it and unlikely to play the full 90

  19. sirmorbach
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    A) Saiss + Guendouzi + Kun
    B) Boly + Saka + Auba

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Does the modified fodder needs to play ??
      If yes, then B.
      Otherwise A

      1. sirmorbach
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Will benchboost this week. Otherwise, not necessary

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 1 day ago

          B then ..
          Can downgrade Boly to Siass and upgrade Saka to someone else too. McGinn can be good differential if needed

    2. Kung Fu Football
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B as i think they are very slightly more nailed and therefore likely constitute more minutes?

      1. sirmorbach
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Cheers!

  20. Noah’s Ark
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    How’s she cuttin? BB draft from earlier.

    Henderson, Reina
    Baldock, O’Connell, Targett, Alonso, Doherty
    Kdb, Pepe, Mahrez, Pulisic, D Luiz
    Aguero, Aubameyang, Nkietah

  21. dream_team_legend
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Is Nketiah and Martinelli a stupid combo? I’m thinking yes but have them in my BB team to save cash for other areas.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Waste of 2 positions in BB in my honest opinion ....

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Do you have the second WC?

      1. dream_team_legend
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yep, BB, FH and second wildcard left. Difficult to fit in others and Salah/TAA/Kun, KDB/Sterling.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I wouldn't want both of them for a BB personally but you'd have the luxury of immediately getting rid of them

  22. Warby84
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    BB Draft

    Leno Ederson
    Trent Egan Basham Wan Bissaka Aaron’s
    Fernandes Sterling Sarr Grealish Fleck
    Aubameyang AgueroC Pukki

    Any thoughts? No chips left...

  23. Nightcrawler
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 1 day ago

    For those using BB chip

    Who are the NON DGW players youre looking at.

    I cant afford the pool players sadly.
    Need 1 defender and two attacking players (2 mids or 1+ 1 fwd)

    1. HamezMace
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      In my first draft;

      Foster, Trent and Robertson

    2. I Member

      Salah, TAA and Lascelles in my current draft.

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Lacelles is a good shout for me why didnt i think of hin

    3. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Im looking at something like Ings, doherty barnes or something like that atm but notbsure

    4. Noah’s Ark
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I currently have Doherty, Alonso and Pulisic.

    5. Hernandez Lynam
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Whats the press conference/ team news situation going into next week?

    1. Pasqualinho

      Mostly by Zoom, I think. Jose's going to do his nude from the waist down with the Simpson's couch as his virtual background.

        😆

        Do you know when they take place?

        1. Pasqualinho
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I'm not sure - what do the Germans do? I expect it will be very similar.

    Think I'll ignore the free transfers and go FH 30+ and BB31+... will only see me miss out on an extra couple of players over those who BB30+ with 12x DGWs

    FH30+

    Leno
    TAA Stevens Baldock
    Sterling KDB Pepe Grealish McGinn
    Aguero Auba

    BB31+
    McCarthy Krul
    TAA Doherty Alonso Maguire Fernandez
    Salah KDB Bruno Richarlison Barnes
    Jimenez Ings DCL

    1. Noah’s Ark
      • 7 Years

      Looks a good plan

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yeah I like this

  26. Noah’s Ark

    After the first week back I love the look of these front 8 but have to drop one obviously.

    Who do you drop?

    Salah, Kdb, Son, Fernandes, Pulisic
    Rashford, Jiminez, Jota

    1. Noah’s Ark
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Pulisic I suppose.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Pulisic definitely

    3. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

      pulisic

      may need kane in there

      1. Noah’s Ark
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah Kane has the fixtures to go bonkers.

      2. Noah’s Ark
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Comes down to Alonso, Salah and Jota V Gomez, Pulisic and Kane.

        I thought the former looked an obvious winner at first glance but I think it is much closer than it looks.

    4. HamezMace

      No WC?
      I’d be concerned only having one DGW attacker.

      1. Noah’s Ark
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I have WC. Sorry I’m looking at this attack after the DGW.

    5. Pipermaru
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Jota or Pulisic.

      1. Noah’s Ark
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Thanks Piper. Just love the Wolves fixtures and they are pushing for the CL spaces.

    119 points after Mane(TC) worked. Sane disappointed a bit but it feel so great considering till 4-0 Mane had no attacking return

    1. bitm2007

      Great score. 102 points has got me up to 28th, my best virtual rank since GW1

      1. Lindelol
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        wow great rank man. I am at 282. Although all other chips still to go but i don't think i can even touch top 100 now

        1. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          just TC left (Auba in GW34) for me, it's been a good season for me except one GW when I lost 50 points on the leaders.

    What does people think about mendy? Good differential?

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Same old problem unlikely to get two starts.

  29. jg7u
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    How likely will Reece James start?

    1. Exeterslowly
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Not nailed on but a sure starter. I’d rather choose a better wing back from another team

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Think Lampard will be forced to play him in a 3-4-3 with Jorginho and Kante missing reducing the ability to play 3 in midfield.

      Kepa
      Azpi Tomori Rudiger
      James Gilmour Kovacic Alonso
      Pulisic Mount
      Abraham

      would be my guess vs Villa

      1. Noah’s Ark
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah Alonso and Pulisic are in for me. I get Villa are fighting for their lives but I just don’t think they are good enough.

    guys will price rises still happen with these unlimited transfers in place now?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Nope, prices are locked

    2. boredjames
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      "Prices of players will not change until after the GW30+ deadline has passed"
      sorry should have read
