Vintage Salah performance asks tough questions of FPL managers

Brighton 1-3 Liverpool

  • Goals: Leandro Trossard (£5.8m) | Mohamed Salah x2 (£12.5m), Jordan Henderson (£5.3m)
  • Assists: Tariq Lamptey (£4.0m) | Naby Keïta (£5.8m), Salah, Andrew Robertson (£7.0m)
  • Bonus Points: Salah x3, Henderson x2, Robertson x1

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) was the star of the show as Liverpool ran out 3-1 winners at Brighton on Wednesday evening.

In a performance much more like what we have come to expect from the Reds, the Egyptian scored twice, added a ninth assist of the campaign and took all three bonus points for an 18-point haul.

It means that, since the beginning of Project Restart, Salah has delivered in all but one of his outings, the Gameweek 32+ trip to Manchester City, and even then he struck the post in the first half.

Across his four post-lockdown appearances, Salah now has two double-digit hauls and averages 9.3 points per game.

Such impressive statistics, combined with a scintillating “classic” Salah performance at Brighton, in which he was a penalty-box-shot-machine and creator in equal measure, is sure to ask Fantasy managers some difficult questions between now and the end of the season.

Even though it’s Burnley up next, is he an essential player to own and should he be in the captaincy conversation more often? There will be many who answer yes to both of those, especially with Sadio Mané (£12.4m) reduced to a 29-minute, yellow-carded cameo in Gameweek 34+, and the Golden Boot still on the line.

“(Salah) is a striker, how can [scoring] not be a motivation for him? That’s clear. In the last two years he won the Golden Boot – last year he shared it with Sadio and Aubameyang. It’s always important, it’s important for Sadio. In the end, you only can score goals when you perform well and he did that tonight, so that was really good.” – Jurgen Klopp

It must be said that there was an element of fortune about Liverpool’s opening goals at Brighton, without wanting to take too much credit away from the Reds.

Salah netted his opener after Davy Pröpper (£4.8m) dawdled in possession in his defensive third, allowing Naby Keïta (£5.8m) to nip in and set up the Egyptian for the goal.

Then, in the eighth minute, Jordan Henderson (£5.3m) pressed Adam Webster (£4.4m) on his way out of defence, Keïta intercepted the pass to Pröpper. The loose ball fell to Roberto Firmino‘s (£9.4m) feet, whose pass to Salah was cutback to Henderson to rifle home a screamer.

Both of these efforts were a result of Brighton trying to play intricate passes out from the back against a Liverpool side famed for Jurgen Klopp’s ‘gegenpressen’. The chances of Burnley trying this at Anfield do seem slim, although Arsenal (away) and Chelsea (home) might be more susceptible to Liverpool’s ruthless ability to win the ball in dangerous areas in Gameweeks 36+ and 37+ respectively.

But even after Brighton tried to take fewer risks at the back, Salah was still able to pose a considerable threat in his busiest display since the Premier League returned.

In the 53rd minute, he managed to get around the back of Dan Burn (£4.5m) and into a one-on-one with Mat Ryan (£4.7m). His cute finish nearly crept over the line before the Brighton goalkeeper managed to scramble it away.

Shortly afterwards, the Egyptian was tearing into space behind the defence again, this time teeing up Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.1m) for a blocked shot.

Salah got his second of the game with a clever glanced header at the near post from an Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) corner in the 75th minute, going close to a hat-trick during stoppage time. His quick feet enabled him to get to Ryan’s spillage first, his flicked effort clawed over the bar.

The contribution of Robertson was particularly noteworthy, considering that he only played 45 minutes of the 3-1 win. It was him, not Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m), who made way for Neco Williams‘ (£4.0m) first-ever Premier League start, but a yellow card for the youngster saw Klopp bring on the more experienced full-back at the interval.

After a spell of Brighton pressure in the second half, Robertson was a great outlet for Liverpool, arguably more so than Alexander-Arnold who had a relatively quiet game by his standards.

Generally speaking, Liverpool’s defence does continue to operate at a level much lower than Fantasy managers witnessed earlier in the campaign. They are likely to be without Henderson operating in front of them for Gameweek 35+ too.

“I don’t know [how serious Henderson’s injury is], I don’t know, honestly. I didn’t see the situation back on the pitch, but I know that it will not be nothing, probably. That’s how it is, but we have to wait. I cannot say more.” – Jurgen Klopp

At the expense of stability in their own box, Brighton did cause Liverpool real problems on Wednesday night, their front-three combining in much the same way as we have come to expect from Klopp’s forwards.

Leandro Trossard (£5.8m) was by far the chief threat for Brighton again, adding his second goal in as many games and going close to more than that throughout the evening.

Neal Maupay (£5.7m) found Pascal Groß (£6.2m) in space inside the box during the 18th minute. The German pulled the ball back for Trossard to see his lashed effort blocked by Williams.

The Belgian then used his scintillating pace to spark a dangerous counter-attack in the 27th minute, getting past Joe Gomez (£5.3m), who committed too early. He then crossed back to the centre of the box from the dead-ball line, where Maupay latched onto the ball and forced a smart reaction save from Alisson (£6.2m).

Trossard had another go himself in the 35th minute. This time he was slid in by Maupay, drifting into a central position under pressure from Alexander-Arnold, unleashing another blocked effort.

It was on the stroke of half-time that Trossard finally found the breakthrough, firing home a Tariq Lamptey (£4.0m) cross with aplomb.

As an aside, this was a fourth successive start at right-back for the former Chelsea man, an impressive achievement under such a tinker-man as Potter.

Trossard’s last chance came in the 84th minute, Pröpper’s chipped through ball finding him in space behind the Liverpool defence, although he could only hook it over the bar, perhaps unaware of quite how much time he had available to him.

“Brighton were really good. They played really good football, took some risks in the formation. Some of them were really threatening counter-attacks so we had to block twice in the box. In the end, we conceded a goal. I said to my boys at half-time, ‘It is a good game [for] both sides, but they deserved their goal’ and in the end, we had to adjust a few things and make a few things better.” – Jurgen Klopp

However, it is perhaps difficult for Fantasy managers to get too excited about the Trossard and his attacking colleagues, apart from those chasing extreme differentials.

That’s because Graham Potter is famed for rotating even his best players, tailoring Brighton’s line-ups to their opponents more than anything else.

Also, they host Manchester City in Gameweek 35+ which may prove to be a tough test. 

Perhaps then, the period to target Seagulls is from Gameweek 36+ onwards when they face Southampton (away), Newcastle (home) and Burnley (away) between then and the end of the season.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (4-2-3-1): Ryan; Burn, Dunk, Webster, Lamptey; D Stephens, Pröpper (Bissouma 71′); Trossard, Mac Allister (Mooy 71′), Groß (Connolly 71′); Maupay.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; N Williams (Robertson 46′), van Dijk, Gomez, Alexander-Arnold; Wijnaldum, J Henderson (Milner 80′), Keïta (Fabinho 61′); Oxlade-Chamberlain (Mané 61′), Firmino (Minamino 87′), Salah.

    Losing my way a bit since restart with poor decisions every week. Salah out beIng one of them. In hindsight triple City midfield may not be for best.
    2.4 m in bank- Jiménez or Kane to Vardy the obvious move? But would really appreciate your thoughts on my team and best moves? Second in ML and chasing 39 points

      Jimi to Vardy looks decent. Jimi highly owned

    2. LC1
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I guess it depends on your rivals team and which chips you have left?

      Jimenez to Vardy to me is obvious transfer, and will mean you could potentially FH next week and ditch him for Ings the following week?

  5. Stoichkov#8
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Best trio:

    a) Rashfrod, Vardy, Foden
    b) Rashford, Mahrez, DCL
    c) Greenwood, Vardy, DCL/Jim
    d) Greenwood, Mahrez, DCL/Jim

    Bottomed:

    I have a bit of a dilemma, and I need advice. I have 1 FT, .04 ITB and the following team:

    TAA, Doherty, AWB, (Holgate, 3.9)
    Salah, KDB, Martial, Bruno, Puli
    Ings, Jimmy, (Nketiah)

    With Nketiah’s red and Holgate’s injury I now have zero bench. IMHO, the best move is AWB and Nketiah to Greenwood and Aurier/Digne.

    It will cost me -4. I’m right on the edge of 10k, so I don’t love taking the hit. What do you all think? Any other ideas?

    Got caught up with the Kdb hype before the game yesterday. It felt like if I don’t captain him... My rank would sink. Feck it! I am gonna play this game with a lot of anger now. Fully determined to smash the remaining gameweeks & ignore any sort of hype here henceforth

    1. Peter Russo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      It wasn't wrong..I capped him also. He could've easily got 3-4 assists yesterday if not for woeful finishing by City players we could've been talking about a huge haul so I think I did the right thing to cap no doubt.

      1. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Fair enough. You’re right although I think it is just me. Kdb never hauls when I cap him.I know how good he is but I am selling

    2. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Not really hype, just sheep. I captained Sterling and was happy with 10 points considering he only played 29 minutes. Go big or go home for rest of season!

      1. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Absolutely. I am gonna sell him. My balls are that big to go without & use the extra cash elsewhere

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Go for it!

        2. yosim
          2 months, 19 days ago

          don't make an emotional decision! it's not like he blanked, not captaining him easily could have hurt you! 🙂

    3. A Fat Spanish Waiter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Sometimes your captain needs to protect you. If you didnt captain him and he went off (and he could have easily had 12 pts yesterday), you would be looking at a big red arrow. I capped him, but my armor was green, primarily because I didn’t dump Salah, and Puli came through.

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      He was statistically the best captain to pick. This game has a lot of luck and you won't get it right. It's just as often that Salah has an off day and gets taken off at 65mins with 2 points.

    5. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      KDB captain was the least of my worries this week ... seeing Salah haul this week after captaining him last week and subs, Sterling / Robertson coming on and outscoring my starters (TAA / Mahrez)

      I'm still suffering from last week's FH results - 1 pointers from both Sterling and Mahrez, 4 points for Salah ... so to see the ones I don't have scoring big this week is just the puke on top

      Looking good there. Pep might rotate but Mahrez likely to start again.

  12. Rinseboy
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    The more mull this over the more I think Salah off the bench against a tired Burnley could be decent.

    Could possibly be a tight game up that point too

    1. Cheeto__Bandito
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Burnley collapse against big teams away

      1. Cheeto__Bandito
        2 months, 19 days ago

        even concede 2xga against west ham

      2. Rinseboy
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        maybe think Salah looks so hungry tho 20 or 30 mins he'll be gunning for goal and Burnley may have given up by then

        1. Cheeto__Bandito
          2 months, 19 days ago

          yes agree, think Burnley will get battered tho even pre-salah

    2. Peter Russo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Salah will prob start.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

      You might kick yourself with Foden benched. Logic says sub Foden. Pep says otherwise (smile)

      1. FPL Pillars
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Haha always a chance with pep, but I think he will be benched and play at the Etihad midweek.
        Plan to play him then!

        1. FALSE PROFIT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Don't have him ATM. But as I see it 70% chance Foden getting double figures. If a sub probably 50% chance of 6 points Sais and Doh 50% chance of letting in a goal. But you are stuck with 7 good alternatives. shame you have to have 3 defenders.

    3. Coys96
      • 3 Years

      I would do Kane to Vardy, GTG

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I would not personally get Azpi. Safe pick but the gap is too big between attack and defense and Shef united will exploit this IMO. Why Robbo, coming from injury and has looked poor the last few GW's?

      1. Cheeto__Bandito
        2 months, 19 days ago

        nailed on liverpool fullback, he played 45 so see him starting not as sure trent starts

          You probably right but Robbo taken off may have been performance related.

          1. Cheeto__Bandito
            2 months, 19 days ago

            he got put on not taken off

        yeah, depending on tonight's performances...

    2. King Kohli
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      If Spurs & Kane look poor, get Vardy

    I shouldn't of took salah out....

    1. Fit_to_drop
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Me neither. It was for Sterling but it still wasnt the right move.

  17. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Rashford to Vardy (C)?

    Also have Bruno and Martial.
    To avoid -4 this week, planning to do Dcl or Jimmy to Greenwood next week

      I’m not drinking the Vardy’s Kool-aid yet.

      That said, I’m contemplating something similar in that I need to move Nketiah, but I already have 3 UTD, so it will take a hit to get greenwood in.

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Many not worth getting Vardy

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

  18. Rinseboy

    Best defender up to 4.4?

    Ideally someone with a decentish fixture this week as worried about Salah, KDB or Mahrez benchings

    alresdy got Aurier Fernandez Doherty TAA.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      You don't need anyone for that last slot unless you still have bench boost. Lamptey will do fine.

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Agree

    2. A Fat Spanish Waiter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Lamptey actually looks pretty good. Wish I had got him on my wildcard a few weeks ago.

    3. Rinseboy
      • 8 Years

      thanks all

  19. LIARS POKER
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Think i'm going to go all out this week

    - Mane (TC)
    - Jimenez, DCL, DDG > Pope, Vardy, Jimenez (-4)

    Anybody want to talk me out of it?

    1. LIARS POKER
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Pope, Vardy, Greenwood*

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Pope vs LFC GW35. Mane's turn to super haul...

    2. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Who’s the 2nd Jimenez?

  20. A piece of toast
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Pope (Button)
    Robbo, Soy, Taylor, Rico, Lascelles
    Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Foden, Martial
    Jimi, Vardy, Ayew

    1) Hold
    2) Ayew to Greenwood

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I love the Ayew pick.

  21. Stoichkov#8
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Vardy or Mahrez?

    (my team is set up in a way I can only get one)

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Vardy this and next week, then sell

      1. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        This^

  22. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Chasing. ML leader will put the armband on Vardy. He doesn't have Sterling.

    TC Vardy or Sterling?

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Vardy not sure about. Involvement not as high as 3 goals suggest.

    2. King Kohli
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Raheem

    3. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Sterling

  23. FPL Kaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Who is most likely to blank this week?

    a) Vardy

    b) Mane

    c) Sterling

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      A

    2. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      B. Burnley can actually defend

    3. Skloppy Kops
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      B

  24. manu4life99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Start Foden(bha) or Aurier(ARS)?

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Foden

    2. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Foden although expect 20-30 mins

    The main questions for this GW has to be:

    "Play Pope or not? If not, who to get in for him?"

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      No, you just leave Pope and hope for saves.

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I am bringing in Pope start of GW35. He has LFC next so will skip GW35 and stick with Patricio for next week 🙂

    3. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Asked the same earlier. Unanimous keep Pope.

  26. FDMS All Starz

    What to do here? Need to close down a 30pt lead.
    1FT & 3.2itb

    My Team:

    Patricio - Martins
    TAA - Doherty - Aurier - Kiko - Simpson

    Rivals team:

    Martinez - Martins
    TAA - Saïss - Taylor - Holgate - Simpson

    1. Running Apes
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Think possibly some Chelsea coverage, Pulisic or Willian and possibly dropping Jimenez

  27. Running Apes
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Contemplating a -4 this week with

    Jimenez - Mane out > Vardy - Pulisic.

  28. Fit_to_drop
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Put a percentage number on KDB not starting away to Brighton?

    1. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Whatever happens he's getting minutes but not 90 so it probably won't matter if he starts or not

    2. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      50

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      99% 😉

    Sorry of this has been asked already:

    GW35: Mane or Salah?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Both
