Free-flowing Liverpool display bodes well for Newcastle trip

Fantasy Premier League managers were treated to a preview of Gameweek 38+ as the goals flowed in Liverpool’s 5-3 win over Chelsea on Wednesday evening. 

It was a night where each side’s defences went on holiday and the floodgates opened up, usually the hallmark of the last day of the season.

On the basis of this performance, there will be plenty of interest in Liverpool attackers as they travel to Newcastle on Sunday, but Fantasy managers may have to ask some important questions as they prepare for the closing weekend of 2019/20.

Firstly, for all the Reds’ free-flowing football, which could punish an injury-stricken Magpies squad, they will be travelling to St. James’ Park in the wake of celebrating lifting the Premier League trophy. The last time they played after a big party they were soundly beaten 4-0 by Manchester City. While Newcastle are unlikely to be as punishing as Pep Guardiola’s men, there are sure to be concerns of a Liverpool performance akin to that defeat on Sunday…

But provided Jurgen Klopp can encourage a stronger focus on the next match than we saw with that heavy Etihad loss, there were a lot of encouraging signs about his attackers against Chelsea.

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) is sure to go into Gameweek 38+ with a bee under his bonnet after he was unfortunate to miss out on a goal for the third match in a row. The Egyptian was, as ever, the most threatening Liverpool forward in terms of shots produced and chances created for him, while Sadio Mané (£12.2m) did not shoot once.

Despite a heavy involvement in the regular forays into Chelsea’s territory, Salah could muster only an assist for Georginio Wijnaldum’s (£5.4m) first-half goal. And when the premium midfielder was replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.1m) in the 79th minute, he was positively thunder-faced.

With just one match left of the season, Salah sits four goals behind Jamie Vardy (£9.7m) in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot. While clinching the award seems unlikely at this point, it will almost certainly be on the Egyptian’s mind on the final weekend of the campaign. If Liverpool can replicate the free-flowing display of Wednesday night, and Salah keeps up his involvement in those attacks, a big haul is hardly off the cards. He may have to work on his finishing in the next few days though, especially after spooning a golden chance wide in the second-half when he was clear through on goal.

After recording just one attacking return between Gameweeks 30+ and 36+, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.7m) was back to his scintillating best against Chelsea, becoming the first defender of the season to go past the 200-point barrier. Currently sat on 209 for the campaign, he is just five points off breaking the record for most points in a season for a defender, set last year by colleague Andrew Robertson (£7.0m).

Against Chelsea, the right-back struck home a routine direct free-kick in the first half before throwing up a trademark cross in the second, nodded home by Roberto Firmino (£9.3m). Both of those events bode well for a Gameweek 38+ meeting with Newcastle, the Magpies sitting inside the bottom three for headed goal attempts allowed and set-play attempts conceded since the Premier League restart.

Those statistics may also be of a benefit to Robertson who continues to have a hand in Liverpool corners, nearly earning an assist for a Salah goal in the second half against Chelsea, a previous corner also leading to Wijnaldum’s first-half strike. The left-back got the attacking return his crosses deserved in the 84th minute when his ball sailed through the middle of the Chelsea defence to be turned in by Oxlade-Chamberlain. That made for Robertson’s fourth assist of the restart period, double the number recorded by Alexander-Arnold.

Obviously, the Reds were helped by continual issues with Chelsea’s defence. They have now gone an entire Premier League campaign with just one clean sheet on the road and only four sides have conceded more goals from set pieces than Frank Lampard’s men. While they have managed seven clean sheets at home, their susceptibility to corners may convince owners of Willy Boly (£4.9m) or Romain Saïss (£4.8m) to start them for Gameweek 38+. Meanwhile, Chelsea’s general issues with defending, made worse by continued poor performances from Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.4m), is sure to be enough evidence to hold onto Raúl Jiménez (£8.1m) for one last hurrah.

That said, as much as Chelsea struggled at the back, they offered plenty of attacking threat at Anfield. Liverpool’s defence has not been at its best since the restart, keeping just three of their 15 clean sheets since Gameweek 30+, but owners of Christian Pulisic (£7.4m) should feel particularly encouraged ahead of the final round of fixtures. 

Despite only playing 31 minutes, the American managed a goal and assist for a nine-point score. During this time on the pitch, Pulisic looked unplayable, exploiting the space behind Liverpool’s defence to cross for Tammy Abraham (£7.4m) to tap-in and net an excellent swivelled finish of his own. Whether he will get as much of freedom against a compact Wolves side remains to be seen, but the mid-priced midfielder has now delivered attacking returns in all but one match since the Premier League restart, averaging 6.8 points per game during that period.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson, van Dijk, Gomez, Alexander-Arnold; Wijnaldum (Milner 66’), Fabinho, Keïta (C Jones 66’); Mané (Origi 87’), Firmino (Minamino 87’), Salah (Oxlade-Chamberlain 79’).

Chelsea XI (3-4-3): Kepa; Rüdiger, Zouma, Azpilicueta; Alonso (Emerson 88’), Kovačić, Jorginho, R James; Mount (Pulisic 58’), Giroud (Abraham 58’), Willian (Hudson-Odoi 58’).

    I would really be interested to know how all the free hitters and bench boosters did this gameweek. Probably my best gameweek this season. (95 points with Pulisic on the bench and all my ML rivals lost 30 points plus against me.
    Is there a site we can get this information?

      Shoddy top of the page post!

      Brag camouflaged into a sentence..

        4 months, 14 days ago

        Not so. Not my style at all. I have a template side so never expected such success. My point is chips are overrated. I said it was by best GW intimating there have been more minuses than pluses.

    3. FPL Kaka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I managed 90 points on my FH a few weeks ago so feel confident that Idon't own it now

        What I am saying. There must be many out there that rue the use of a FH chip this week.

      97 with BB, all thanks to Sterling(C) and Puli and BUR Def triple

    FH team (no pool mids)
    Martinez button
    TAA Robbo Pieters Thomas Williams
    Fernandes kdb dilva sterling Davis
    Aubameyang Greenwood Kane

    No mane/Salah, but think the FBs might enjoy a CS with attacking returns? Don't see Newcastle scoring tbh

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Im thinking of something similar with Robbo/Trent.

      Like the side pal

      1. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        TA! Feels good, having covered most bases

        1. Ruinenlust
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 14 days ago

          What if TAA doesn’t start? At least we know Salah will stert

          1. The Red Devil
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 14 days ago

            TAA has had his rest few games ago

    2. Davemc23
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Have you watched the last few united games? Bruno looks spent to me. I like the no Liverpool mids though. Trying to convince myself it's the right thing to do

      1. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        Yes, Bruno and Greenwood are kinda defensive moves, ML rival has him & I'm around 20 points ahead, so defending my position. But yes, not expecting much from them tbh

      2. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        Could not agree more about Bruno. Martial does not like playing away either.

  3. Hryszko
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 14 days ago

    Reckon we get early team news for Sunday? Particularly City's team?

    Thinking of doing KDB > Sterling & Fernandes > Antonio.

    Thoughts?

      FPL_Rockstar has said he won't leak anything for the final gameweek. Not sure I 100 % the other "leakers"

      1. FALSE PROFIT

      That's impossible.

      1. Hryszko
        • 3 Years

        What's impossible?

    3. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      I think that is a great call.
      My plan with no further info available.
      KDB to Dilva and Jimmi to Kane. (I have Sterling)

  4. Davemc23
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 14 days ago

    Having no Salah makes my team soooo much nicer on paper. He has done very little the last few weeks. Any thoughts?

    Pope

    TAA Alonso Pieters(Branthwaite Williams)

    Mahrez Dilva Sterling (c) Antonio Pulisic

    Kane Auba (Nketiah)

  5. NULL-X-VOID
    • 6 Years

    I like Ings but I saw someone calling him a priority in 38, Sheffield have one of the most impressive teams wrt to their Def this season, IG the goal margin won't go up above 2 goals

  6. robt

    2 Ft's

    A. Fernandes, Jimi - Sterling, Greenwood

    Who is a better cheap midfield punt?

    a) Brooks

    b) Grealish

      Vardy/Doherty -> Kane/Aurier worth a hit?

      Pope Martinez
      TAA Doherty Bardsley Fernandez Taylor

      Vardy Greenwood Jesus

      1. NULL-X-VOID

        My guess, Vardy is going to wreak havoc against UTD

    5. ElliotJHP

      My laying Burnley FH, which I am coming round to the idea of.

      Ryan
      Robbo Lamptey Trent
      Sterling KdB Silva Salah
      Kane Ings Greenwood

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years

        0-0

      2. Sargasso C
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 14 days ago

        Can you need squeeze Pieters for Lamptey? Would much prefer double Burnley to double Brighton

        1. ElliotJHP
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 14 days ago

          I'm either going double/triple Burnley or none at all, EO of Burnley defence is going to be massive and I am trying to sneak into Top 10k

      3. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        Snap back at ya with the laying of Burnley defence

    6. ㅤRising
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Why are people getting rid of KDB?

      1. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        I presume because he played 90 and there is a chance he doesn't start. Also might not be on pens and playing deeper. I'm keeping unless leaked team shows he doesn't start.

        1. NULL-X-VOID
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 14 days ago

          too deep in the last few games ig that may be the reason

      2. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        To get Sterling, in my case. Without destroying the structure of the team too much

      3. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        Sterling I suppose ad off penos

      4. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        Because they want Sterling and don't have any other City slots spare.

        I think it's a huge mistake to lose him if you're not maxed out on City.

        1. ㅤRising
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 14 days ago

          Yes I think you should find another way if youre not maxed on City. He should start and he wants that assist record

    7. Sharpify
        4 months, 14 days ago

        After a dogsh*t gw37, how do i overhaul this team via a FH? I have £0.4M itb.

        Pope (Reina)
        Saiss Baldock Azpi (Fernandez) (Lewis)
        Willian Salah Martial Bruno KDB
        Giroud Ings (Connolly)

        I've got a wishlist as long as my arm, so any suggestions?

        1. Davemc23
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 14 days ago

          You have FH?

          1. Sharpify
              4 months, 14 days ago

              Yeah, and i want to chop 75% of this team out, but the budget is killing me!

          weird feeling but I'm thinking WOL-CHE is going to outscore MCI-NOR

            That is a weird feeling 😉

              • 6 Years
              4 months, 14 days ago

              Ik but looking at their Def I'm sure Jimi is going to score, and now that I sold him for Kane, I'm 120% sure he has a hatty due

              1. Make Arrows Green Again

                • 3 Years

                You could get good odds for a hunch like that. Hope you're right as an owner and keeper 🙂

        4. TeddiPonza
          • 10 Years

          Have to leave one of those out of my FH team. Who should it be?

          A. Salah
          B. TAA
          C. Kane

          Thanks

          1. Amey

            Any of the pool, ig Kane is a must, CRY Def is the weakest after NOR at least to me

          3. Sharpify
              4 months, 14 days ago

              salah will free up loads of cash, and keeping TAA will give you Liverpool coverage.

                TAA coverage doesn't do much good if salah scored a hattie in a 3-1 win

                What if I Just want most points?

                I was set on A bit not having KDB & TAA scares me.

                I’m now seriously considering D but not sure how punty Soucek is. Risky going no united but Fernandes is exhausted and martial/ rashford don’t haul away

            2. Davemc23
              • 9 Years

                4 months, 14 days ago

                E over D?

                Soucek has been posting decent stats?

                  • 9 Years
                  4 months, 14 days ago

                  I like mahrez and Antonio more than kdb and soucek tbh

            Are we likely to get early Arsenal team news?

            If Lacazette or Nketiah start it could be a game changer for a FH

            1. TheDragon
              • 2 Years
              4 months, 14 days ago

              I did consider this but still think its Auba or no one from
              Arsenal

            Who scores more this week?

            A) Salah, Mahrez, Pulisic & Pieters
            B) Salah, D.Silva, Bruno & Pieters (-4)
            C) Salah, D.Silva, Pulisic & Tarko/5.7 (-4)

            Was set on selling Pulisic & Mahrez but Bruno and triple United attack are a bit worrying now.

              If Salah is on all 3 why list him?

              B looks good to me.

                Lol I didn't realise that.
                Yup it's between A or B I think.
                Just worried about the hit.

            Is going without a Liverpool attacker mad?

              Not really as there are plenty of good alternatives, but they're bound to score.

            Do you think it will be Man City trying to deliver to Dilva to finish of his Man City career with as many points as possible or Sterling to break into 20 goals?

              I don't think Pep gives a continental about individual records. I do think he care about Dilva and his contribution over the years.

                    Yeah would like to but I’d have to take a hit and lose Salah

                What to improve? 1.9 to spend..

                Martinez (3.9)

                TAA Pieters Bardsley (Branthwaite) (BWilliams)

                  On FH? Maybe go Pope Aurier instead of Martinez Bardsley

                  Upgrade Guendouzi > Soucek just in case.

                  Perhaps Tarkowski over Pieters/Bardsley but not much in it.

                    Noted on Soucek.

                    Yup.. Not much of an upgrade..

                    Which combo does better on FH38:
                    A) TAA, Pulisic, Jesus
                    B) VVD, Mahrez, Kane

                    1. mohitischamp
                        4 months, 14 days ago

                        I doubt if Jesus will start

                        • 6 Years
                        4 months, 14 days ago

                        A for me because of Puli, but Jesus has been useless

                        1. InvertedWinger

                          4 months, 14 days ago

                          If he starts I honestly think we could haul. Even with his confidence and finishing ability, hes bound to put away 1 or 2

                    2. Athletic Nasherbo

                      Just some of my predictions for the final gameweek:

                      1.Chelsea will miss out on UCL, with United and Leicester playing out a 2-2 draw, whilst Wolves defeat the blues with a 2-1 win.

                      2. Spurs will demolish an on the beach Palace who are in awful form. This is the start of the end for Hodgson. Son will score a hattrick in this game.

                      3. Both Villa and Watford will lose their games respectively.

                      4. Bournemouth will defeat Everton 3-1 and stay up.

                      5. Finally all City assets will score well and please owners of all. Even those who are benched will get in on the action.

                        All plausible, can't see beyond a draw for the West Ham - Villa game though. West Ham suddenly have nothing to play for, not even to entertain a home crowd, and Villa are looking tight at the back. Bore draw or 1-1.

                      4 months, 14 days ago

                      38 clear of rival who has bench boost. Any tips? We have a lot of same players. His main threats are Ings, Martial and Antonio. I have Auba, Woods and Pulisic. Should I block him or continue playing my own game?

                      1. Camzy
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                        4 months, 14 days ago

                        Block wisely. So Pulisic > Antonio could be a nice move.

                          I'm thinking that or Seiss to Tarkowski. I probably should block but I haven't so far.

                        Wood to Ings if you could do it.

                          The thing that puts me off Ings is he has 2 Sheffield defenders lol so I don't mind him scoring as it wipes them out.
