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.

    Lose Salah or Bruno to fund Aguero & Auba?

      Bruno

        Terence Trent Arnold?

        1. The Mandalorian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Yes

  2. The Train Driver
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    What about this with BB?

    Leno, Henderson
    Egan, O'Connel, Targett, Lascelles, TAA
    Sterling, Saka, KDB, Grealish, Henderson
    Auba, Kun (C), Samatta

    That's 3 dgw players from each team, WC week after when we see the form of the teams and playera.

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Not too bad, who is Henderson mid? That would be a question mark

      1. The Train Driver
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Liverpool, any suggestions for a better 5.3 or lower player?

      2. The Train Driver
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Yarmolenko on 5.2 looks good if he gets to play...

    2. Easy Cheesy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Looks good. Two questions:
      - How confident are you saka will play?
      - Why henderson?

      1. The Train Driver
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        1. 50/50 at least I think he will get minutes.
        2. Seemed like the best 5.3 or lower option, may be wrong.

    3. The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Most teams can't do this so u will smash it u have the key players job done

    4. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      not sure Saka will play will he ?

      1. The Train Driver
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        I hope so, he's my enabler...

  3. The Mighty Hippo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    I fancy the idea of a Kane - Rashford - Jiminez front three in a GW31+ wildcard.

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      You won’t be able to afford it if you also wanted Salah, Mane and Son. I think Son will outscore Kane

      1. The Mighty Hippo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Yeah, but I'm not sure if I want Salah and Mane for the final games of the season.

        1. POLSKA GOLA
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 23 days ago

          If they won the title at Goodison Park (in the unlikely event of MCI losing to ARS) the hangover would surely last for a while, otherwise you do want them for 31+

  4. FPL_DON
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Hi Guys,

    It's good to be back, I hope you've all been keeping well!

  5. Champ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Any word on Rashford guys

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      I think he played United’s internal game. Will be a great pick for 31+

      1. Champ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Cheers. Great fixtures. Good price. And Bruno....

        1. POLSKA GOLA
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 23 days ago

          Yes, looking at 31+ WC main targets are Salah, Mane, TAA, Rash and Son.
          On the enabler front Harvey Barnes and Jota

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      No value tied in him and everyone wants Kun and Auba now. I have him atm, but he has to leave in order to come back 😉

    1. scubasmithy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      A or C, C just nicks it

    2. Another Hoops
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      A if fit but B could be a decent differential. I just can't see Villa scoring many unfortunately.

    Anyone else got no idea what to do with their team..

    I'm hoping to wait for a bit, do we know if price changes will be happening now?

    1. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      prices are frozen which is great

    2. Another Hoops
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      See below my team but with no wildcard I've had to think ahead about what I'm doing hence the Soyuncu pick for example. Decent 3-4 games then bin.

  10. jg7u
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Seen quite a few BB teams with Nketiah. Any idea how much minutes he'll get?

    1. kysersosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      I think they are just trying to make their teams work to budget. I think he's a risk for minutes.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Can't see him starting against City but could be good to start vs Brighton

    3. Another Hoops
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Yeah I see him as an impact player. 30 mins across both games at most IMO.

      1. HamezMace
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        He started the last three league games prior to the lockdown.

  11. Another Hoops
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Bench boost active with no WC available just FH. Plan would be do downgrade Sterling and Auba over the next few weeks to get players like Rashford, Son and Fernandes. Thoughts?

    Reina
    O'Connell - Egan - Soyuncu
    KDB - Sterling - Mane - Grealish
    Jiminez- Jota - Auba

    Leno - Cantwell - Lascelles - Saiss

  12. kysersosa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Initial Template. Have BB, WC, and FH:

    Plan: GW 30 BB with

    Henderson, Leno
    TAA, Saiss, Rico, Egan Targett
    Grealish, KDB, Sterling, Xhaka,, Fleck
    Samatta, Aguero, Aubameyang

    GW 31 WC.

    Thoughts?

    1. Another Hoops
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      I like it, I'm not sure on Rico due to competition but otherwise looks good pal.

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Looks good. Fleck and Xhaka not for me.

    3. scubasmithy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Exactly the same set of chips left as you - here is my draft.

      Non DGW = Double Liverpool defence (may change this) and chilwell, Jota up front.

      GW 30 BB

      Henderson, Leno
      TAA, Egan, Targett, Gomes, Chilwell
      Grealish, KDB, Sterling, saka, Fleck
      Jota, Aguero Aubamayang

      May ditch Gomes for a cheaper defender and keep salah instead of sterling.

      1. kysersosa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        I think its hard to set up and not be pushed to use your WC in GW31. United, Spurs, Liverpool and Leicester all have decent fixtures that week.

  13. Ógie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Sorry, i am a bit out of the loop and am only copping on to the game restarting with "unlimited transfers" now.

    Does that mean that they're unlimited transfers for all the games or just for the opening gameweek of the restart.

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Just the 1st GW

      1. Ógie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Ok,thanks Polska.

  14. DannyDrinkVodka
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 23 days ago

    If you had to choose one for a FH Punt:

    A)Pepe
    B)Lacazette

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      A

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Cheers, Pepe missing in action against Charlton two days ago for no apparent reason

    2. Another Hoops
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      A

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Cheers, do you think Pepe is nailed?

        1. Another Hoops
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 23 days ago

          No personally I'd go Ozil mate if I was going for an Arsenal midfielder. Pepe is obviously more explosive as proved against United but I'm sure I read Ozil has featured more under Arteta, he tends to get subbed a lot but I can see him playing more minutes over the 2 games.

          1. kysersosa
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            8 months, 23 days ago

            Id agree. You will have a lot less ties up with him too.

    3. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      A

    4. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      im thinking Pepe ... I think he will be more motivated than Ozil ... Ozil strikes me as the type of guy that would have been taking it very easy during lockdown

    5. scubasmithy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      I'd avoid all the expensive assets bar Auba, better value elsewhere

  15. FredrikH
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Going with this for now. BB with some long term options.

    Reina Leno
    Doherty Saiss Alonso Egan Lundström
    KDB Grealish B. Fernandes Fleck Douglas Luiz
    Vardy Auba (VC) Agüero (C)

    Looking to get Son/Kane in if they're looking sharp and getting rid of KDB/Agüero for 31+.
    Sounds like a plan?

    1. Another Hoops
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      I think you should downgrade Vardy to a Wolves attacker and upgrade either Fleck or Douglas Luiz otherwise sound plan 🙂

  16. Gangster Panda
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Do we know when the Fixture Ticker is likely to be back up?

  17. Herman Toothrot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Hit Confirm?

    BB + WC31

    Leno // Henderson
    Alonso // Doherty // Targett // Egan // (Baldock or Stevens)
    Mahrez // KDB // Bruno // Doherty // Grealish // (McGinn or Saka)
    Aguero // Auba // Jiminez

    Baldock and Stevens are the same price for me. Unsure on Saka or McGinn.

      Don't like the double Villa mids playing against the Sheffield United treble D. Grealish maybe to cover yourself but not both.

  20. Iceball

    KDB Kun Sterling too much?
    Can fit Auba also and lot of Sheffield and Villa.
    Mahrez instead of Sterling?

    This is the most stupid question you'll see here today, but this break has made me weary of forgetting something. It says here I used my WC on GW20. This means I *do* have my wc left, right? These corona times are making me insane.

      Not at the minute, obviously circumstances could change but for now the answer is no.

      not unless one is caused by covid19... thats the only way at the moment... so almost certainly not

          Why TAA and Mahrez ? You don't like Sterling more?

            Think Mahrez is explosive. Could go off against Arsenal or Burnley. Even with reduced minutes.

              Lundy too if he gets to play. Think you have a decent team there.

    Yes, the obvious strategy is to use unlimited ft:s now, BB and then WC. Yet, the question remains. Could there be differential strategy? My TV is over 2 million higher than my SV and team pretty nice for the rest of the season.

    So how about avoiding too much dgw fever and saving some TV and also WC for the future?

      I'm prb going bb with transfers, but holding those with value that I want long term, ie fernandes, taa, and maybe jimi.

    Now, KDB (c), likely to get more minutes, or Kun (c), more lethal? Or Auba even?

      I’m thinking maybe KDB (c) also because he started taking pens just before lockdown too but interested to hear what others are thinking

    Seems weird, if I'm contemplating unlimited transfers for a bb in gw 30, and I only have auba as 1 arsenal player.
    Not convinced about any others, even of their chances of starting.
    Am I wrong?!

      Nketiah will get minutes, IMO.

        The problem with nkeitah is there are a lot of SGW budget forwards for that week but not enough mids. Jota pukki ings all good shouts then u have the DGW big hit duo

    2. Nightcrawler

      Leno looks a decent pick on bb

      1. jason_ni
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        True.. Henderson is a lock for the team, so would mean bringing in Leno for ederson, again frees up more cash for else where!

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 23 days ago

          Could go with 3 shu defenders with ederson and leno

          Or what u said with leno and laporte as the city def

      I’ve gone Auba, Saka and Nketiah, can’t go wrong with their price, and allows Aguero, KdB and Sterling as big hitters.

      I’d like Bellerin too, but I think I’d prefer attackers from Arsenal and City, rather than defenders.

      1. jason_ni
        • 5 Years

        I could punt of nketiah, but I have kun,auba,jimi, and want jimi long term, and dont want to lose value in him. Tho him to nketiah would free up a load of cash for the bb!

    3rd Draft.
    Should I BB? I'm stuck rn.

    McCarthy-Pope
    TAA-Doherty-Maguire-O'Connell-Lascelles
    KDB-Fernandes-Mahrez-Fleck-McGinn
    Auba-Rashford-Jimenez

    Going to do Mahrez to Alli for GW 31+

    Which one for my BB team?
    A) Bilva + Jimi
    B) Sterling + Jota
