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)
  • Assists: Sterling x2, Foden, De Bruyne
  • 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.

    A Rashford & Guendouzi
    or
    B Greenwood & Pulisic

    Thinking to trf A to B for -4 ??

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I've considered this very same move for free.

      Don't like the prospect of selling Rashford before Bournemouth at home but he's been very wide and Greenwood does look increasingly nailed.

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Not for -4

  2. BrutalLogiC
    • 5 Years

    Puli or Martial in for Son?

    Got Bruno only from Manu

    1. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Martial

    2. james 101
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Martial in my opinion

      But both look good

  3. PascalCygan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Son to Willian/Pulisic a good move?

    Then upgrade Guendouzi to Foden/ASM?

    2FT, 0.1ITB
    De Gea
    TAA Doherty Justin Lascelles
    Salah KdB Fernandes Son
    Jimenez Rashford

      I'm looking at Son to either Willian or Pulisic... tough to decide which. Willian on set pieces currently has me favouring him

        chelsea fixtures are not great

        • 2 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Nice one, thanks.

        I'm also considering a switch of Rashford & Guendouzi to Greenwood & Willian/Mahrez.

        Getting rid of Rashford before Bournemouth at home seems mad but, if he and Greenwood both start out wide, is there that much difference?

  4. Gunner Boy
    • 5 Years

    Chances of the below starting?

    A- Salah

    Simples, right?

    A) Bergwijn + Mané -> Pulisic + Salah

    B) Fernandez + Bergwijn -> 3.9m + Mahrez

    C) Davis + DCL -> Pulisic + Greenwood

    1. Bucket Man

      C

  6. james 101

    So do we prefer (in what order?)

    A. Mahrez

    B. Sterling

    C. Son

    D. Pulisic

    1. Phlajo
      • 1 Year

    Pope
    TAA AWB Boly
    KdB Mane Bruno Mahrez
    DCL Rash Jimmy

    Subs: Button Saka Kiko Robinson

    1FT and 1.2itb

    Is DCL to Tammy stupid/sideways or worth the kinda punt?

    1. Bucket Man
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Can see Tammy being rotated often with Giroud. At least DCL nailed.

      1. Lev Yashin
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        I thought you said to do DCL -> Greenwood???

        🙂

        1. Phlajo
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Not possible as I have 3 united players already

      2. BrutalLogiC
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Sideways for me, dcl nailed for 2 pointers!

  8. Strchld
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    What to do? Have 2 FT but nothing in the bank.

    De Gea (Martin)
    TAA - Doherty - Saiss (Lascelles, Simpson)
    KdB - Mane - Son - Bruno (Guendouzi)
    DCL - Jimi - Rashford

    DeGea unfortunately blocking to get Greenwood/Martial. Bench looks very weak too and can see a rotation next weeks.

    A) Son > Mahrez and bank another FT.
    B) Son and Guendouzi > Mahrez and Foden
    C) DeGea and DCL > Ederson and Greenwood
    Sohing
    Thanks all.

    1. Bucket Man
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      A. Would imagine Foden benched this GW.

      1. ThisTimeNxtYrRodney
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        It's important to have a strong bench this gameweek as rotation and resting likely to disrupt many teams. I have a feeling that the captain choices of many may have limited gametime. That's why I'm not playing any transfers. I dont want to transfer players in and then to find them with limited gametime. A week for rolling a transfer for me.
        GTG for this week.
        Pope
        TAA aurier doherty
        KDB bruno sterling foden martial

        Subs Greenwood, holgate, lascelles.

    2. Strchld
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Also one option:

      Son, Guendouzi and DCL > Mahrez, Pulisic and Nketiah -4

      1. Bucket Man
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        I don't like hits but that sounds very nice.

        1. Strchld
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Thanks. This means that I cant get Foden at all. Is Pulisic better option than Foden, not sure at all.

          1. Bucket Man
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 28 days ago

            If you have Mahrez he is. City will rotate a lot. Not sure on weather I get Mahrez myself or not.

            1. Strchld
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 28 days ago

              Yeah, not sure too.

              Spurs looked so bad yesterday but then they have Bournemouth.

              Not to know what to do with Son.

  9. Bucket Man
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Don't know what to do. Auba and Barnes to
    A) Greenwood and Mahrez, Get Pulisic next GW
    B) Rashford and Pulisic. Ignore City

    Pope
    TAA, Aurier, Boly
    Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Barnes
    Auba, Jiminez, Ings
    Stevens, Lascelles, Luiz

    1. Lev Yashin
      • 7 Years

      I'd bring in Puli this week. Might even combine him with Greenwood instead of Rashford.

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Yeah this week is pulis best fixture IMO so better to get him now if you're going to

      2. Bucket Man
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Thanks. I just feel that I want Mahrez with pretty much a guranteed start this week.

    On my WC, which one to go for and why?

    1) Trent + Bruno + DCL
    Or
    2) Maguire + Antonio + Kane

    All 3 will be part of playing XI unless injured.

  13. teneighty
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Midfield for the coming GW is:

    Salah, KDB, Son, Pulisic, Fernandes

    I really want to get Mahrez for the run in but I don't know who I should remove. Son is not really firing but he has EVE, bou, ARS, new coming up. Feels wrong to remove with those fixtures. I need another midfield spot!

    1. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Son has to go for me, or Pulisic

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Would drop Son, waste of money

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Dropping Pulisic after this week is also an option

    3. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      If you really want Mahrez, Son is the way to do it. Not worth a hit though. The extra cash can be useful.

    4. teneighty
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Cheers guys! Not taking any hits and all out of free trannies so they get this GW to prove they're worthy of my exclusive midfield slots. 🙂

    5. dunas_dog

      Keep Pulisic for Watford game then transfer in Mahrez or Fodon for home game v Newcastle- think you will want Son for Bournemouth game

  14. fish&chips

    Let me try this again with a proper striker

    Pope,

    Mahrez, Sterling, Foden, Martial (c) Bruno
    Jimmy, Rashford

          • 2 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Greenwood for this gw as he is more nailed.

    Good to go this week?

    Pope (Button)
    TAA Lascelles Saiss (Basham Stephens)

    Jimenez Rashford Ings

    1. The Legend Squad

      Very similar team to mine below, like it. I’m also going Fernandes captain.

    Having to navigate this schedule 1 FT at a time is exhausting...

    RMT

    McCarthy
    AWB TAA Lascelles
    KDB Son Fernandes Salah
    Jimenez Ings Rashford

    Button Saïss Stephens Hayden

    Working on upgrading Button and Hayden for a BB in the final few GWs

  20. The Man Pastore
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    TAA + Richa + Son --> Gomez + Mahrez + Salah for -4pts, YAY or NAY ?

    My current team is:

    Patricio Martin
    TAA Doherty Maguire Lascelles Kiko
    KDB Son Bruno Martial Richarlison
    DCL Jiminez Nketiah

    2FT / 0.7IT

    Thanks!

    Morning all. Here's what I've got:

    Martinez
    Saiss - Lascelles - TAA
    Bruno - KdB - Son - Salah
    DCL - Jimi - Rash

    Martin - Holgate - Davis - Simpson

    I'm thinking Son out > Martial or Pulisic in. Is it then worth using the freed up funds and taking a -4 to upgrade Davis to someone like Foden, or DCL to Ings?

  22. HD7

    2 FT and 0.0m ITB
    All the input is welcome:)

    De Gea,
    TAA, Doherty, Fernandez
    Salah, Bruno, KDB, Son,
    Rash, Jimi, DCL

    Button, Taylor, Hayden, Robinson

    Change Rash and Hayden to Greenwood Mahrez and play 3-5-2? (DCL on bench)

    Doherty to AWB....?

    1. james 101
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I wouldn’t

      Other great Man U Assets and doh is so solid

  24. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    WC active | BB 34

    A) AWB + Holgate + Nketiah
    B) Digne + Kabasele + Greenwood

    Which option seems better?

  25. Lev Yashin
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Can see Mané being rested after his dodgy finishing.

    Mané -> Salah worth a pop?

    1. Qaiss
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Rested just after a weeks rest?

      1. Lev Yashin
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Not rested. Dropped.

  26. james 101
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    GTG?

    Marty
    TAA Doherty Ritchie
    KDB Fernandes Salah Martial Pulisic
    Rashford Kane

    Button Nk Taylor Robinson

    0.5m in the bank.

      Not sure about my cap yet. Too many options this week!!

    2. JS27
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Your TV must be insane! Great team but about 5m more than I could afford

      1. james 101
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Thanks mate.

    How accurate is RMT tool??

    1. JS27
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      In terms of actual points? Not very. But it is a good tool to see which gameweeks your squad looks particularly weak for to help plan around that

        Reckons 65 this week made no difference bringing in Mahrez or Pulisic?

        1. james 101
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          They are similar in potential

          I’ve been going back and forth on them

    2. james 101
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Maybe more just thought provoking...

        3 months, 28 days ago

        Defo gives an idea of who to bench, reckons bench Taylor vs Sheffield?

        1. james 101
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          anything that raises questions is healthy right?

  28. JS27
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    A - Martial, Bruno, Connolly (-8) or
    B - Martial, Luiz, Rashford (-4)?

  29. Pomp and Circumstance

    can I get feedback on this WC team?, with plan to BB in GW 34 (the one after this one)

    Pope, Martinez
    Taylor, Azpilicueta, Robinson, Kiko, Holgate
    KDB, Mahrez, Salah, Pulisic, Bruno
    Greenwood, Rashford, DCL

    1. james 101
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Solid

  30. Roy Rovers
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Who do I need most in this team....Mahrez or Rashford?

    2FT and cash 3.7 ITB

    Pope
    TAA AWB Doherty
    Martial Salah KDB Bruno
    Jimi DCL Nketiah

    Button CANTWELL Lascelles Johnson

    1. g40steve

      Rashford is due a haul, nailed as well.
