Salah-less Liverpool lack attacking spark as Klopp hints at more rotation

Everton 0-0 Liverpool

  • Goals: None
  • Assists: None
  • Bonus: Alisson (£6.2m) x3, Jordan Pickford (£5.2m) x2, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m) x1

Absence may make the heart grow fonder, but it did nothing for a decidedly lacklustre Merseyside derby.

The lack of a baying Scouse crowd robbed the fixture of all its historic intensity, while the pre-match news that both Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) and Andy Robertson (£7.0m) would be missing from Liverpool’s starting line-up did nothing to improve the mood of many a Fantasy manager.

The lengthy lay-off and unprecedented circumstances brought about by the pandemic were never likely to help matters, but the game was still a strangely sterile affair, with the best action of the encounter reserved for the final few minutes.

Both teams managed just three attempts on target each which, seeing as Liverpool enjoyed 70% possession, was either testament to the visitors’ toothlessness or Everton’s resilience, depending on your point of view.

But the truth of it was that only Alisson (£6.2m), in the Liverpool goal, was ever truly stretched.

He produced two fine saves from Richarlison (£8.3m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.5m) late on, with the rebound from the latter’s effort falling to Tom Davies (£5.3m), whose shot was deflected by Joe Gomez (£5.3m) onto the post and away to safety.

That happened as we entered the final ten minutes. The previous 80 were largely forgettable.

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp opted to bench Salah, and leave Robertson out of the squad altogether, for reasons of fitness.

In fact, he shuffled much of his pack, both before and during the derby, mostly for rotational purposes.

The Liverpool boss said:

We play in three days again. Today if I play 11 players the 95 minutes and they all have to go like they had to go today, then I have a real problem on Wednesday, that’s how it is.

You cannot underestimate it after four weeks of pre-season and nine weeks break before. We play two games in three days, so that’s why we have to think a little a bit before we have problems.

Problems did arise, however, with James Milner (£5.3m) and Joel Matip (£5.2m) both coming off with injury issues.

Klopp said of the pair:

Millie felt a hamstring a little bit, but we had this in the past. Millie is not often injured and hopefully, it is not serious. He is smart enough to show up in the moment when he feels it, so hopefully, it was the right moment. Maybe not Wednesday, but after that, I would hope for.

Joel was unlucky and we had to make a quick decision. It was a situation with Richarlison and he bent or stretched or his big toe. It is really painful, but hopefully, it settles, the pain settles and then we will see. I hope nothing serious has happened, but I don’t know yet.

The German’s decision to use Takumi Minamino (£6.0m) in the Salah slot proved interesting.

The Japanese international looked bright and breezy, but his similarity to the playing style of Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) helped neither of them to flourish – a state of affairs that is unlikely to change across the rest of the season.

Klopp ended up hooking Minamino for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.2m) at half-time, a decision which seemed sufficiently harsh that he felt the need to explain it post-match:

The change at half-time was a pure idea for me and nothing to do with Taki’s performance. He found the game in the first half absolutely and then we thought, ‘Come on, why wait until the player gets tired when you get the opportunity?’. That didn’t work out 100 per cent, but Ox was lively, very lively.

‘Lively’ was not a word to describe much of Liverpool’s performance, with Firmino wasting his side’s best chance of the match when he opted to shoot, wide as it turned out, from the edge of the area instead of playing the ball on to a more advanced teammate.

That came from a rare break against an Everton team that sat very deep and invited their guests to play in front of them.

Other than that, home keeper Jordan Pickford (£5.2m) was only troubled by a late free-kick from Fabinho (£5.4m) which he was required to tip over the bar.

As for the hosts, Richarlison was a consistent threat throughout, firing across goal with one effort very early on and easily eclipsing his fellow striker Calvert-Lewin for attempts (five versus two) – not good news as the English forward is, with 12.8% ownership, Everton’s most popular player in Fantasy Premier League (FPL).

Calvert-Lewin did come close to breaking the deadlock with a header narrowly wide during the Toffees’ late surge, but even coach Carlo Ancelotti agreed that a draw was probably the right result:

Honestly, we were really close to winning but it was a difficult game. We performed really well, we were focused and sacrificed.  At the end we had opportunities to score and were a bit unlucky. But Liverpool played a good game and had more possession but defensively we were really good.

Salah and Robertson now looked poised for Gameweek 31+ minutes when the Reds host Crystal Palace on Wednesday, with Klopp saying:

Some players couldn’t train in the last week – they trained, but not with the team – like Mo and Robbo, but yesterday they were in training and both looked really good. That’s why Mo is in the squad, Robbo not yet but on Wednesday [he will be] again.

For Robbo, it was better to have a proper session today and then be in for Wednesday, and for Mo, it is the right thing to do it like this.

Minamino is the obvious makeweight for the Egyptian unless Sadio Mane (£12.5m) is rested after enduring a fruitless 90 minutes being nullified by the excellent Seamus Coleman (£5.3m).

After that, it’s the sort-of-title-showdown with Manchester City, but Liverpool’s league crown is an inevitability and the only real Fantasy issue is how much rotation Klopp will indulge in once that is a reality.

For now, the answer would seem to be ‘a lot’, which will reduce the appeal of their assets.

Everton, meanwhile, have a generally attractive run to the end of the season, which should mean that current disinterest in their players – none appeared in the Gameweek’s top 30 for transfers-in – proves to be a temporary blip.

Defensively, this was their first clean sheet since Gameweek 22, so the jury remains out on the backline, but Richarlison, for his promise, and Calvert-Lewin, for his price, are surely worth a look with the likes of Norwich, Villa and Bournemouth to come over the next few weeks.

Everton XI (4-4-2): Pickford; Coleman, Holgate, Keane, Digne; Gordon (Sigurdsson 60′), Andre Gomes, Davies, Iwobi (Bernard 88′); Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin (Kean 90′).

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, van Dijk, Matip (Lovren 73′), Milner (Gomez 43′); Henderson, Fabinho, Keita (Wijnaldum 65′); Minamino (Oxlade-Chamberlain 45′), Firmino (Origi 65′), Mane.

      On WC. Ranked 25k overall, but playing around with the idea of risking no Mane/Salah and packing the defence. Thoughts (0.2 ITB):

      Pope
      TAA - Doherty - Alonso
      KDB - Son - Bruno - Richarlison
      Rashford - Jimenez - DCL

      3.9 - Saka - Lascelles - Holgate

      1. La Roja

        Love that.

      2. No Professionals

        doing nowhere near as well as you, but also considering no pool attack to get Son.

        thats a solid team. Rich is a great differential this GW against Norwich

      4. Jack Burton
        • 4 Years

        I like it I have 11 of those gonna keep some cash back to do Rich to Pogba if he hits some form

      5. jayzico

        That's power. I'd downgrade Pope to martinez and son to mane?

    6. built_this_city
      • 2 Years

      Will games be re-arranged for the FA cup or champs league or is the FPL set in stone now ?

      1. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        think it is as set in stone as it can be

      2. JabariParkersEyelid

          It's set in stone barring disaster.

              its that or

              Vardy to Rashford

          • Tcheco
            • 3 Years

            Good team although I'd be tempted to bring in Doherty

        2. Tony Martial
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Would you do any of these transfers?.

          Kun and Martial TO Rash and Son.
          Kun and Martial TO Salah and DCL.

          Leno McCarthy
          Trent Doherty Lascelles Justin Lund.
          KDB Bruno Martial D.Luiz Grealish
          Vardy Jimenez Kun.

          1. KDB4PREZ
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Prob not worth it he hit (unless Kun doesn’t play vs Chelsea)

            • Bruce Lee
              • 2 Years

              I would do the Son one

          2. KDB4PREZ

              Any1 going for the triple pool defense on FH this week? Am tempted by it

                • 1 Year

                  Wouldn't like to be anywhere near your rear-end during the last 10 minutes

                TAA VVD and Alisson?

                1 month, 20 days ago

                I would but I don't really see VVD being a better option than the flying wing-backs Chilwell and Doherty

              Current team (+0.5m itb), with players looking to ship in the next 2 GWs starred:

              Pope - Hendo*
              TAA - Doherty - AWB - Lascelles - Stephens*
              Salah* - KDB - Bruno - Doucoure* - Mooy*
              Auba* - Jimi - Jota*

              Contemplating the following:

              A) Hendo --> Martinez for the cash, reassess next week to upgrade Doucoure
              B) Auba + Doucoure --> DCL + Son (-4), Salah --> Pogba/Martial GW32+
              C) Jota --> DCL, reassess next week
              D) Save and reasses, mini WC GW32+

                Beautiful

                I’d go with Newcastle defender Instead of Aurier but that’s just me

                Yes looks great

                Not sold on MNU triple attack. Would rather have Ings/DCL/Richarlison over Martial

                  Looking great. Very similar to my WC but I cannot afford Martial as 5th mid, will have to play 442 with Lascelles/Taylor as 4th defender

                      Ty, with low TV I can only hope for returns from NEW and BUR defences, at 4.3 each they are such a good value

                After watching Spurs - UTD, Westham - Wolves and Everton - Liverpool, I really contemplating about this move:
                Son + Abraham to Richa + Rashford for -4

                Thoughts?

                1. La Roja

                    1 month, 20 days ago

                    Any reason? as I see it I am replacing a player with an uninspiring manager that plays him very wide and a non nailed player (Abraham) for 2 explosive players - Rashford - UTD just was looking for his run-ins, and Rich against that awful Norwich

                    I know that everyone want him in, but did you watch the game? Mourinho just gives him such a wide role.

                    1. Coys96

                      Yes he did.

                      He was our best attacking threat. Most shots, most chances created and was on set pieces

                        That's the problem, the whole spurs team with 0.39 XG, 4 Sib and 1 BC. That is really bad.

                For a Free Hit, which 2 teams would you double-up on attacking assets?

                a) Man Utd (Fernandes, Martial/Rashford)
                b) Wolves (Jimenez, Jota)

                  AD. Wolves u can double up by Jimenez and Doherty and Spurs Son & Aurier

                  Not for me. Decent fixtures but toon finishing is too inconsistent to take advantage imo

                  I'm a fan and punted on him for GW30. One concern is earlier in the season there were worries about his hamstring. He seemed to have a bit of limp when he got off the bench at the final whistle. Probably just due to lack of games, but could be a concern.

                  Mane has served much better over the past year (including the end of last season). Stick with what brought you to the dance.

                For the first time ever, I think I'm actually happy with this WC team (until Pogba racks up a 20 pointer!):

                  I'm pretty sure Salah will start. Was fit enough to be as sub and would have been substituted if no injury for Matip

                  Yea sort ur keeper out imo. Saïss>Schelotto, Simpson>Robinson and do a 3 way rotation between Lascelles, Schelotto and Robinson

                    Cheers, even with those transfers I only have 4.7 which is limited for a keeper. Tempted to go without Salah but know I'll regret it.

                      Oh, yea Salah>Mane then would free up enough to get Pope. That’s what I had to do

                        Sorry but I don’t know how long Leno is out for, if he is out confirmed all season then this is probably ok with Martinez. But if he comes back your a bit stuck

                          Thanks, I like the team apart from the keeper but if Leno is injured until the end of the season I might keep as it is. I'll give it time to wait on Leno.

                  Decent - although not a fan of doubling up on defenders.

                  Think you'll need a strong bench for the coming weeks

                RMT - WC

                Pope Hendo
                TAA Lascelles Lunds Kabasele Saisse
                Salah KDB Son Troare Bruno
                Jimi Connolly 6m

                Thought? Could swap TAA for VVS to free up some funds for a 2nd striker (everyone under £6m is awful!)
