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.

    Nothing like doing the transfers you want when you can just afford them, right before both players go up in price!

          Nice moves!

          I did Son, DCL > Mahrez, Greenwood last night. No price changes but I’m happy!

            I think I’ll do the exact same moves. Did you consider Puli instead of Mahrez at all?

              I’ve got 3.3m itb for Guendo to Pulisic next week. If I did it this week it’d be -4 and a massive benching headache!

      2 should never be an option

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

        Will bring him back next GW even if I go for second option

          • 7 Years

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            Then what do you suggest? I also have TC chip to play so I guess salah could be a good option

    2. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Think I'd play Connolly over DCL

    2. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Naa don't get DCL on WC. You should WC him out, not in.

    3. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Looks decent. DCL the only slight concern

    4. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Decent team. Don't worry about DC-L, he's the best in that price range. Fixtures turning soon.

      A Wolves double up worries me.

    1. CroatianHammer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Oooo, A I think. Close though. There was talk of Foden having taken a belt to the leg last night, might be a tad wonky before 33+

    2. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Yeah that was my original plan. Or even just Greenwood if Son/Spurs looked good, which they didn’t. Guessing you then have money for Puli next GW as I mentioned?

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Yeh 3.3m itb. I’m so tempted to do it this week for a -4 but I wouldn’t know who to bench!

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            That’s the problem isn’t it.

            I want Mahrez, Martial, Pulisic, Foden and ASM Haha!

            Wish I could make a decision like you have. GL pal

            These are my option. I know which you pick obviously haha. Why did you go that way??

            A. Son+Guendo >> Martial+ASM/Foden (Bench DCL)

            B. Son+DCL >> Pulisic/Mahrez+Greeny

            C. DCL+Son+Guendouzi >> Greeny+Mahrez+Pulisic (-4) (Bench HEADACHE!)

              I’d be torn between A and B because Martial is def a great pick atm but I just felt an urge to go for Mahrez 😆 he looked hungry last night and he is nicely rested

      Who's Doherty up front? Wouldn't go for a Liverpool triple up in defence, just because of its price, personally. Fun midfield though!

    Thoughts? 2FT, 0.0 ITB:

    DDG - Martin

    TAA - Doherty - Lascelles - Holgate - Taylor

    Mane - KDB - Son - Fernandes - McCarthy

    Rashford - Jimenez - DCL

      Very similar to mine. Thinking of selling Son for Willian/Pulisic and making my benched midfielder (Guendouzi) a viable fifth option.

    Martial
    Fernandes
    Mane

    Anyone free-hitting this GW?

      Had really thought about GW38, but thinking more about it a FH this GW might make it easier to pick the right 2x3 selection frmo Utd+City from GW34+ onwards,

        Yea. Pool, City and Utd fixtures are good to load up with. If the pressers suggest rotation then I'm thinking it could be worth a go

    Anyone playing TC this week? If not, when?

  22. Ace Ventura

    Is now the time to play TC or FH – please help.

    I pick the wrong capo every GW pretty much. My last 3 have been Aguero, Vardy and Jimmy.

    I took the lead in my league for the first and only time the GW before Covid. Since then my rival has played his TC and is sitting 30 points ahead.

    Playing the chips could be make or break for me. Truth be told I hate the chips. I liked the days before chips where everyone captained Ronaldo every week.

    Anyway, when do I play both my TC and FH. This week could be a good week for FH, but Fernandes (or Martial, or Rashford) against BOU has be TC shout surly?

      FH is good for 38 if you get early team news.

        I always think that too late on, more will be decided so less teams will turn up.

        Right now lots to play for in europe race and relegation battle.

          Depends on your team. Not a bad week to triple up ManUtd attack for example, but we have no idea how Liverpool will rotate from now on.

    As easy as....

    A) Bergwijn + Mané -> Pulisic + Salah

    B) Fernandez + Bergwijn -> 3.9m + Mahrez

    C) Davis + DCL -> Pulisic + Greenwood

  24. Karan14

    ASM or Bowen?

  25. hustler7

    Currently 3rd in my ML only a few points from top.

    Really want Mahrez in but not sure how to do it, only 1FT.

    Patricio Martin
    TAA Maguire Doherty Kiko Robinson
    Salah Pulisic KDB Bruno Foden
    Jimi Rash DCL

    I do have FH left but my team already looks pretty well set up!

    Could take out KDB for Mahrez and put him back in after but would lose 0.5m. Surely KDB and Foden don't start?

    Jimenez to Ings is going to be the template move when the baby is born right?

    1. Karan14

      Probably

    Ok think I'm done with my WC. Plan is to BB next week which is why I've gone for a strong bench (plus it helps with any rotation)

    Pope (Fabianski)
    VVD AWB Azpilicueta (Saiss Digne)
    Salah KDB Bruno Pulisic (Foden)
    Kane Jimenez Greenwood

    All good?

    Is Man City Garcia worth a punt for 5th def spot and BB GW34 over C.Taylor?

    1. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I'm considering myself but probably not nailed

    2. FF Dirtbag
      • 8 Years

      Nah too much rotation.

  30. Weasel Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Holgate + Martial
    Or
    AWB + Pusilic

    Have Rash and Bruno.
