What next for Liverpool’s FPL assets after 4-0 thrashing at Man City?

Man City 4-0 Liverpool

  • Goals: Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m), Raheem Sterling (£11.7m), Phil Foden (£5.2m)
  • Own Goals: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.2m)

  • Bonus Points: De Bruyne x3, Sterling x2, Foden x1

Fantasy Premier League managers were given their first glimpse at Liverpool assets following last week’s long-awaited Premier League title win… and it was not pretty. Hope now rests on a fierce backlash for the upcoming Aston Villa match in Gameweek 33+.

After walking out to a guard of honour at the Etihad Stadium, Jurgen Klopp’s men were thumped 4-0 by Manchester City in one of the worst Liverpool displays of recent years.

We always expected a slight drop-off in quality from the Reds once the title was wrapped up, but very few would have predicted that this would manifest itself at the Etihad Stadium, where Liverpool had the chance to beat their title-rivals on the pitch as well as the table.

What followed was a performance of extremely poor defending and profligacy in the final third. While the game itself was relatively even for large spells, Manchester City were the side whose quality shone through in the key areas at both ends of the field.

“They used their chances – not all, but a lot – and we didn’t. So if City was 100 per cent deserving of course today, but a 5-3 or something like that would have been possible as well.” – Jurgen Klopp

Klopp strongly denied any criticism of his players’ attitudes at full-time, insisting only their focus was lacking in Gameweek 32+. Either way, the celebrations of the club’s first English top-flight title for 30 years are unlikely to have helped the preparation for this game.

“We didn’t behave like somebody who became champions a week ago. So like, it’s not important. It’s all good. We lacked fluidity, and that’s for sure, and in some situations – 50/50 situations – they were quicker than us in mind.” – Jurgen Klopp

The question hanging over Liverpool now is whether or not they will bounce back for the Gameweek 33+ visit of Aston Villa to Anfield. Well, there were certainly signs at the Etihad Stadium that they are capable of responding to this defeat.

It might be seven hours and 42 minutes since Liverpool’s last away goal in any competition, but five successive blanks on the road will mean nothing to them on home turf, even if there is no crowd to cheer them on.

Had Klopp’s men been handed slightly more luck against Manchester City, they might have been two goals to the good before Raheem Sterling (£11.7m) won a first-half penalty on Thursday evening.

Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) was responsible for both of these chances, drawing a save from Ederson (£6.0m) for a fourth-minute volley and striking the post after a 19th-minute counter on Manchester City’s high defensive line.

Sadio Mané (£12.5m) will also be kicking himself after getting into an unmarked position from close range in the 11th minute, only to nod a Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m) cross from deep into the ground.

Owners of both Salah and Mané are almost certain to hold onto Liverpool’s dangermen for Gameweek 33+ and a Gameweek 34+ trip to Brighton looks like a good a place as any to arrest their goalless run on the road. After all, this was the first time they have blanked in five away matches in all competitions since 1992. That has to end soon for a team as good as this one.

However, Fantasy managers may want to see some defensive improvements from Liverpool when Aston Villa come to Anfield, if nothing else, just to ease their minds.

For all the Reds’ excellent organisation at the back over the last two seasons, they were torn apart at ease by Pep Guardiola’s troops on Thursday night, with Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) and Joe Gomez (£5.3m) coming in for the lion’s share of the criticism.

The left-back was pulled out of position far too many times for a player of his quality, allowing Phil Foden (£5.2m) all the time he needed to slot in Manchester City’s third goal, while Gomez was run ragged by Sterling before Klopp replaced him with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.2m) at half-time, almost as an act of mercy.

To put Liverpool’s Gameweek 32+ defending into context, this was the first time they trailed by three goals at half-time of a Premier League since May 2015, as they went onto lose to Stoke City on the final day of the season. The last time Klopp found himself 3-0 down at that stage of a league match was way back during his time at Mainz in 2007.

Meanwhile, Alexander-Arnold’s deduction of two points for conceding four times in a match is the first time that has happened since Gameweek 4 of the 2017/18 season, when he cost just £4.5m.

While the Reds’ attacking FPL assets appear safer from the risk of rotation for the next match, alterations to the back-line hardly feel out of the question, in light of some of their performances.

For example, Neco Williams (£4.0m) has impressed in his recent cameo appearances and would not look out of place operating in Alexander-Arnold’s role for Gameweek 33+.

Klopp arguably has less choice when it comes to tweaking his defensive set-up, now that Joel Matip (£5.2m) is out for the season and Dejan Lovren (£5.3m) missed the Manchester City game with an injury, so Gomez could earn a recall against Aston Villa. Alternatively, Fabinho (£5.4m) could reprise his role from the second half of Thursday night alongside Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) if required.

However, it must be remembered that, from a defensive perspective, Liverpool’s upcoming fixtures remain promising with Aston Villa (home), Brighton (away) and Burnley (home) their next three opponents. Dean Smith’s men are certainly unlikely to match Manchester City’s attacking credentials in Gameweek 33+, having blanked in two of their four matches since the Premier League restart.

While Manchester City’s assets were the stars of Thursday night, their success comes with caveats of their own.

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m) was his usual imperious self, completely dominating proceedings with his goal and assist. He was at the heart of virtually every Manchester City attack and could have ended the game with a much higher score than he did.

The Belgian played Foden in for a decent blocked shot in the eighth minute, before sliding Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m) into a one-on-one with Alisson (£6.2m), which the Liverpool goalkeeper won.

De Bruyne exposed Robertson’s poor positioning once again midway through the first period, finding Jesus in space with an exquisite pass, only for the Brazilian to screw agonisingly wide.

The 50th minute saw another of De Bruyne’s near-assists. This time he was the one getting behind Robertson on the right, squaring to an onrushing Foden, whose clever attempt at goal was cleared off the line by van Dijk.

De Bruyne was then “robbed” of an assist when Sterling put away the fourth goal just after the hour, his slightly wayward shot from the Belgian’s excellent crossfield pass turned into the net by Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Then, substitute Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) was put through the middle by De Bruyne in the closing stages but dragged wide.

“(De Bruyne is) a really good player. He has something unique. He can run, the vision he has. The personality right now, making four penalties in a row when we struggled this season with them. Right now he’s the best.” – Pep Guardiola

Crucially, De Bruyne got his 11th goal of the season, taking his FPL points tally for the season to 215, breaking his previous record of 209 (2017/18). That goal came from the penalty spot, as the former Chelsea man retains control of the spot-kicks, as well as a 100% record for them this season.

Even though he has averaged 9.3 points per game since the Premier League restart, De Bruyne owners may be somewhat concerned about the prospect of rotation for the Gameweek 33+ trip to Southampton.

With just two days for recovery, he played 90 minutes against Liverpool while David Silva (£7.3m) stayed on the bench all evening and Mahrez and Bernardo Silva (£7.7m) featured only as second-half substitutes.

The same caveat also applies to Foden, who is proving just how explosive he can be when he starts matches.

As much as De Bruyne was the key player at the Etihad Stadium, Foden was his more-than-capable side-kick, linking up well with his colleagues as part of Manchester City’s front-three, creating chances and sticking them away with composure beyond his years. 

A 12-point haul against Liverpool was Foden’s second double-digit score in as many home starts and he is yet to blank in a match he has played some part in since the Premier League restart.

However, whether or not Foden can immediately reward managers who sign him for Gameweek 33+, of course, remains to be seen, considering he played 90 minutes on Thursday night.

“(Phil Foden) is a midfield player. In time he is going to learn to play holding midfielder even, because he can. When he takes the ball, he is aggressive against defenders, and shoots and scores. We cannot waste that. It is so difficult to find that quality.” – Pep Guardiola

By contrast, Mahrez’s benching arguably makes him the go-to Manchester City option for Sunday’s game, especially as he came close to further Fantasy returns against Liverpool. The Algerian snuck a powerful shot inside the near post during the closing stages, only to see it ruled out for a Foden handball in the build-up. That was a rather unfortunate way to see the goal chalked off which, had it stood, would have left Mahrez with attacking returns in every single match since the return of the Premier League. Particularly ominous as he will almost certainly start at St. Mary’s.

The same could be said of Sterling, perhaps to a lesser extent. He produced arguably his best performance of 2020 against Liverpool, spending some time at centre-forward again, and was brought off in the 78th minute, perhaps with one eye on Gameweek 33+. That said, the Englishman has been better at home recently, registering double-figures in each of his last two at the Etihad, but you have to go back to Gameweek 19 for his last attacking return on the road.

Finally, the weeks that followed Sergio Aguero‘s (£11.7m) injury have been not been kind to those hoping Jesus would become an auto-include for our Fantasy teams.

The Liverpool outing was only his second start since the Premier League came back and, to make matters worse, the Brazilian offered next to nothing.

Nothing summed up his evening more than the moment that earned him an early substitution in the 58th minute. Drifting out to the right-hand side, he played a square ball to nobody in particular, giving up possession to spark a Liverpool counter-attack. Instantly, Guardiola leapt up and ordered Mahrez to stop warming up so that he could come onto the pitch.

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Mendy, Laporte (Otamendi 79′), Garcia, Walker (Cancelo 73′); Rodrigo, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Sterling (B Silva 79′), Jesus (Mahrez 58′), Foden.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson, van Dijk, Gomez (Oxlade-Chamberlain 46′), Alexander-Arnold (N Williams 76′); Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum (Keïta 62′); Mané, Firmino (Origi 62′), Salah.

    Good Friday morning all!

    So Matt Targett got more points in 10 minutes than TAA had in 90+. Who would have guessed?

    1. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years

      Nobody made such analytics I guess

    2. CONNERS

      TAA (c) for GW33 it is then.

      Yeah

  3. The Overthinker
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    I think I am gonna take a hit to replace my goalkeeper.

    Currently I have Martinez in my team. But with 4 red fixtures coming, I am really tempted to bring in ederson.

    1. TONY123
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Not worth a hit though imo, Ederson almost caps at 6 points and Martinez will definitely rack up some save points vs Wolves & Leicester.

      1. mad_beer ✅

        This. ^^

        Uhmm cheers Tony

    2. TheTinman

      It’s a close call. So I’d keep the money

      1. The Overthinker
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Money is not a problem.
        Have 3.8 ItB

        Martinez to ederson is tempting .

        Probably 8 points vs 24 points ( -4) in next 4

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      You may want triple City attack in GW38. Not sure I'd waste a spot on a keeper.

    4. Cheezeweasel
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      You might as well wait a week as even if Ederson keeps a cs you are no better than a if you had a 2pt keeper

      B looks the real deal, Sterling looks on fire again

      1. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Do you not think he may get rested for the cup games? Jesus doesn’t look with it and Sterling is likely going to be false 9 in the big games in the absence of Aguero?

        1. TONY123
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Mahrez and Foden are just as or even more likely to get rested/rotated. That's what you pay for with City players but I think they will run riot in those remaining fixtures.

          1. antis0cial
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Yeah fair point. Mahrez and Foden have been better bang for the buck since the break but Sterling could do well till the end in that false 9 role. Thanks for your input.

    2. Better off with a pin and a…

      B or C. Think it's very hard to choose between them from now to the end of the season. Mahrez more likely this week, probably Sterling better long term, but he may be more likely to play the cup games. Very tight.

      1. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Great thanks. I could always grab Foden over Traore next week too.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Yeah, don't see Foden starting this week now and he's an easy one to pick up. That's my plan for next week, anyway - probably also for Traore (after he's made the Arsenal defence look silly this week, I hope).

            • 8 Years

            Should say as well that Son isn't a bad pick either. It's not a done deal Mahrez outscores him short or long term - you know Son is going to play and he's looked dangerous. Close to scoring in both the last 2 as well as the assists.

            1. antis0cial
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

              You're not making my decision any easier 😛 I only brought in Son last week, but Spurs were awful. I had planned to keep him but with city firing on all cylinders it's hard to ignore. A of my options was my route before watching the game last night.

              Yeah I see Foden getting a rest this week, Traore to Foden seems sensible as Traore does also get rotated a lot.

  5. TONY123
    • 5 Years

    Hello everyone, I'm thinking about tripling up on United attack, what do you think about this move for free:
    DDG + Son > Ederson/Pope + Martial
    Cheers

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      It's Ok - seems like most on here are trying to cram four UTD attackers in at the moment. If only ......

    2. mad_beer ✅
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      It will either be great or hurt you. Personally, I like to spread the risk.

    3. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I’d be tempted to stick with whichever 3 United you currently have and take a lucky dip on a City midfielder, they are on fire. But if you want the triple up on Utd attacking assets it’s a good move.

    Okay. I need city and/or Chelsea in my team. Which option ? got 2 FT .0 ITB

    Martinez ( Button )

    TAA - Maguire - Doherty

    Salah - Son - Fernandes - Richarlison ( Guenouzi )

    Rashford - Jimenez - DCL

    A : Richarlison > Pulisic ( Save FT )
    B : Doherty & Richarlison > Azpi & Mahrez
    C : Richarlison > Antonio
    D : Other options ?

    1. TONY123
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      A easy

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

      A

  7. Bruce Lee
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Son over KDB couldn't have gone any worse... wouldn't have been as bad if Son's goal wasn't disallowed

    Oh well, I didn't go with KDB for the fact that he might miss some games against the likes of Southampton so I'll stick with my guns

    If I die, I die

  8. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Bring in this GW:

    A) Mahrez (-4)
    B) Pulisic
    C) Foden

    1. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

  9. CONNERS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Unsure about cap pick for the coming GW after a fairly disastrous GW32.

    Salah getting 90 mins has put me off him tbh. What are your thoughts?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Go safe with Bruno, good fixture, nailed to start, and plenty of avenues to points

    2. The Overthinker
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      He'll still play 90 mins

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Yes, Bruno looking like the safe pick. Feels wrong not captaining a Liverpool [layer at home to Villa though...

      Maybe I'll 'accidentally' cap TAA like I did in GW31. That worked out quite well.

    4. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Pretty sure Salah will start. Personally I'd expect a reaction from Liverpool. Utd or Chelsea assets good calls too, though.

          If you're comfortable with it - feel like you'd need a bench you can rely on in the run-in

      Save I'd say

      Spurs need to win every game now and I think Son will play unless unfit. That loss yesterday must be a kick up the backside that they needed

      You realistically got him for his amazing run in of fixtures - don't sell after just 2 games

      2 games 2 assists let's not forget

      Keep or switch to Mahrez

    Worth keeping Son and Rash?
    Is one from Foden/Mahrez an option or stay away from the roulette?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Yes and no imo they'll get good scores until the end of the season probably

        I've put mahrez in on my wc this week as he was benched yesterday and then swapping for foden next. Think foden is gold as a 5th midfielder till the end of the season

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Nevermind 5th he s my 4th guy 🙂

      You stepped away from the roulette knowing it is a roulette

      You know if any attacking City asset starts, then it is a great chance for points - but the risk is they might not start

      You probably went with Son and Rashford knowing they might not be in as good of a system attacking-wise, but you know they will play more

      If you take out Son and get Foden/Mahrez and they get benched - you'll be kicking yourself

      I myself am sticking with Son as the decision I made was a season-long decision

        "I myself am sticking with Son as the decision I made was a season-long decision"

        I hate this philosophy. We have more information now. Son/Spurs look kak. You have to adapt as you get new information. Son does not look the asset I thought I was picking a couple of weeks ago. So I have booted him.

      I’m not confident of son points - Everton will be a tough match

      Mahrez will score more points to the end of season - fixtures are great for city

      Foden's a great buy at that price - even if he won't play 90 minutes each week, but feels like he can wait until next week now. I'd keep Rash for this week at least. Son->Mahrez is the close call, could go either way. I'd be tempted to hold the transfer and see.

    5. Nabs Kebabs

      I have booted Son. Giving Rash a chance against Bournemouth. May get the boot too if he doesn't perform.

    Best pick on Free Hit ?

    A) VVD + Saiss

    B) Gomez + Doherty

    I have TAA.

    Cheers.

    Which keeper for the next gw

    A. Martinez - Arsenal - away
    B. Maccarthy - city - home

    1. tibollom

      a

    2. Miguel Sanchez

    Throw away my ML leads. Do feel slightly aggrieved with Dubravka conceding late and Kane getting shafted by that ridiculous rule.

    Any help appreciated I’m a bit lost here.

    Dubravka
    TAA Maguire Aurier
    Son Fern Rich Martial
    Kane Vardy Jimi

    Button Lascelles Kiko Guend

      spurs overkill.. get rid of kane and vardy

      1. TheTinman
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Last night was a big game which went the wrong way for me

        1. tibollom
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          yea for sure.. maybe look at Auba for Kane, good differential

    2. Bruce Lee
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I would get rid of Vardy over everyone

      Spurs unlucky with decisions - Kane pretty much scored a brace yesterday and Son's goal was overruled the week before

    3. Nabs Kebabs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Too much Spurs. Son needs to get the boot for Mahrez.

    Free hit chip gw33 - with KDB playing 90 would you avoid him this week for other city assets?

    1. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      You won’t gain on anyone by picking KDB

  26. tibollom
    • 3 Years

    hesitating between mahrez (+greenwood) or foden (+awb).. who will get most minutes you reckon?

    1. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I guess go for B as a bit more differential. AWB looks good value.

      1. tibollom
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        yea thats what im thinking, but mahrez greenwood looks decent as well..

    2. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      This gw greenwood and mahrez

    WC:

    A) already go Foden
    or
    B) ASM (WHU) now and switch to Foden before GW34+ for FT
    ..?

    1. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Planning transfers assumes no injuries or other fires, just go Foden

  28. PLerix

    Martinez, Button
    TAA, Doherty, Maguire, Saiss, Lascelles
    Salah, KdB, Son, Fernandes, Guendozi
    Rashford, Jimenez, Nketiah
    2 ft, 0.1 itb

    Button + Son -> Pope + Mahrez?

  29. My blood is Blue
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 18 days ago

    What to do with these options.
    1. Martial and Rashford.
    2. Sterling and greenwood.
    Or keep 1 and do salah to sterling?
    Any help appreciated.

  30. Stimps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Would you do Sterling -> Salah (c) for a hit if you already have Foden and KDB?
