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’).

    Is it fine to get rid of Salah for below BB team:-

    Pope Martinez
    VVD AWB Doherty Tarkowski Aurier
    Bruno KDB Foden Sterling Cantwell
    Ings Kane Greenwood

    Yay or Nay?

    1. ZakyJ
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      What you changing to and from? Doubt Foden starts and Cantwell obviously a weak link

      1. klopp2567

        4 months, 7 days ago

        Salah vardy lascellas nyland out

  2. sovietrockettes

    4 months, 8 days ago

    Signing off with a -8:

    Foden>Dilva, Bruno>Mahrez, Ings>JRod

    McCarthy
    Digne Tark Aurier
    Salah Sterling(c) Mahrez Martial Dilva
    Kane Greenwood

    JRod Lamptey Boly Foster

    1. Martial Matas
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Only city to city move I'd do for a hit would be to bring in Sterling.

      1. Davemc23
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        I'd play jrod over greenwood

      2. MartialMatas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Hey

    2. ZakyJ
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Can't you just do Bruno to Silva for (0)? Ings +8 is better than Mahrez

      1. Davemc23
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Good point

  3. Kaiser123
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 8 days ago

    -8 hit...Would you folk do this Jimi/KDB/Foden to Nkeit,Sterling/Dsilva.
    Or Puli to Dsilva for free.

    Front 7/8 would is
    KDB, Foden, Martial, Bruno, Puli
    Rash, Kane, Jimi

    To

    Sterling Dsilva Martial, Bruno, Puli
    Kane, Rash, Any 4.5

    1. ZakyJ
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Pili to Silva for free.

      KDB +8 is easily better than sterling

      Jimi and puli are a push

    2. Poison Apple
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I would get rid of 1 of the man u attackers ahead of pulisic.
      Fwiw
      Something like bruno to dilva and upgrade kdb to sterling with a -4.

    3. Davemc23
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Bruno + Rash > Dilva + Auba?

      1. ZakyJ
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        I like this, Watford go 2 down and they'll implode

  4. Phil's Stamps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 8 days ago

    If Leicester finish 5th but Man U win the EL, do they qualify for the Champions League?

    1. FPLHaggis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Nope

      1. Davemc23
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Yes. Max 5 teams from any one country

  5. FPL Kaka

    4 months, 8 days ago

    I am all about Always Cheating's attempt to MFFA (Make Fantasy Fun Again). Definitely an attempt to help mental health in this overly frustrating game:

    1) Try to always pick a team that has fixtures on every day of a GW (especially Monday night) to have something to psychologically look forward to.

    2) If your captain blanks, treat yourself to a take-away meal that evening or day after.

    3) Create a 'Coop FPL' type league on an Excel document where you combine the points of you and one other person in your ML. Something else to play for in a fun way

    1. FPLHaggis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I would have put on a lot if weight with rule 2 this season

    2. Martial Matas
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      It'll be more 'Make Fantasy Fat Again' with rule 2!

      1. FPL Kaka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Haha good point

    3. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Hulk this someone. My mood swings according to my FPL performance have been getting out of hand since the restart (and I still have my best rank ever at this stage in the season).

      You can imagine a bad gw being the straw that breaks some poor bugger's back sooner or later.

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

    Mendy (NOR) or Digne (BOU)?

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      Mendy

      Everton can’t be trusted for a clean sheet which he needs to get bonus

    2. Egg noodle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      Certainly not Digne.

      Still not sure if Mendy will start though. Pep is crazy

    3. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      I'd prefer Mendy of the two if he starts, would rather have a City attacker though.

  7. Atters
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 8 days ago

    Willian to Dilva for a - 4 worth it?

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      Think so

  8. Wigflex
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 8 days ago

    A or B please: for a -4

    A - Salah - Sterling - Saka - Ings

    B - Sterling - Foden - Bruno - Kane

    Current team is:

    Patricio

    TAA - Doherty - Digne

    Bruno - Kdb - Martial - Salah - Foden

    (Button - DCL - Holgate - Lascelles)

    1. Moose™

      If you knew they’d all start then I’d do A

      1. Hryszko
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        How likely are we to hear leaked team news though? I never know.

        Most productive pairing for the final Gameweek folks?????
        A- Greenwood and Tarkowski

            Cheers mate, would you got Aurier or Burnley defence?? I have no Burnley cover and worried about FH teams having double or Treble

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 7 days ago

              But... Aurier has attacking threat

              1. TheDragon
                • 2 Years
                4 months, 7 days ago

                I’d get Pieters/ Tarkowski for those reasons but Aurier is a perfectly good alternative

                  • 3 Years

                  Yeah think il end up playing safe and doing so, Aurier is way more exiting tho!! Haha thanks again mate!! Best of luck!!

        No idea what to do with my free transfer here, any ideas? 0.6 itb.

        Pope,
        TAA, AWB, Doherty
        Sterling, Mahrez, KDB, Bruno
        Auba, Greenwood, Jimenez

        Martin, Fernandez, Ward, Guendouzi

        Want Kane but requires a hit. I guess the boring move would be AWB to Aurier/Burnley defender..

          No D Silva either 🙁

            • 2 Years
            4 months, 7 days ago

            I was looking at KDB, Jim to Silva, Kane for -4 but not sure it's worth it..

        Heading into the final week 39 points behind ML rival, and he has Triple (c) - any suggestions?

        Predicted Rival Team (1 FT - 1.9 ITB)

        Martinez (4.0)
        TAA, Wan Bissaka, Doherty (Fernandez, Egan)
        Sterling (ccc), Fernandes, Martial, Pulisic, David SIlva
        Jiminez, Ings, (Gayle)

        My Current Team (0 FT - 4.3 ITB)

        McCarthy (Fabianski)
        Alonso, Wan Bissaka, Pieters (Boly, Holgate)
        Sterling, Fernandes, Marial, Pulisic, Foden
        Auba, Wood, (Giroud)

        Need to go rogue..... enough funds to do -4 Giroud to Kane (c) currently

        1. Traction Engine Foot
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Would definitely take the hit for Kane.

            Yes^

          Why don’t you C Sterling? Cancel out his chip

          • 5 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          It’s your best move but your midfield not as strong so I am afraid unlikely to make up the gap. I am in similar position 39 points behind and looking at getting in both Kane and Salah for Vardy KDB as final shot

          1. Rinseboy
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 7 days ago

            D man. You about if I post below for some advice? Really need your thoughts bro

              • 9 Years
              4 months, 7 days ago

              Do that transfer but your teams are too similar so don't see you bridging the gap. Sorry

              Yes about for next 15 minutes then later on this afternoon- happy to help.

              What would you do here? I am 39 points behind ML rival (respective teams below) so need to take some risks to try and catch (which has to be very unlikely unless my captain hauls and his fails). I can think of a lot of options but your thoughts welcome.

              I am thinking either (for hit- got 2 m in bank)

              A Vardy to Kane (c) and KDB Foden to Mahrez D Silva
              B Vardy to Ings, and KDB to Mane (c) and Foden to D Silva (.1m short of Salah in this set up)
              C Vardy to Ings, Sterling to Salah (c) and Foden to Mahrez
              D Vardy to Kane, KDB to Salah and Bruno to Antonio

              This is ML leader team (I think he is almost certain to captain Sterling or possibly Aubameyang and will use transfer on defender)
              Pope
              Pieters Aurier Dunk
              KDB Sterling Pulisic Martial Son
              Aubameyang Jesus

              Button Greenwood Saiss Kiko Femenia

              My team (pre any moves)
              TAA Maguire Doherty
              Sterling KDB Foden Martial Bruno
              Woods Vardy

              Pope Aurier Nketiah Fernandez

                4 months, 7 days ago

                That's tough. His team is good.
                Your best move is probably A.
                Captain Kane.

                I guess you can't afford Bruno and Foden to Dilva and Son?

                1. Rinseboy
                  • 8 Years
                  4 months, 7 days ago

                  ignore that he has Son. Vardy to Kane. Foden to Dilva and dgrade Doherty maybe?

                    Thanks- who is best option do you think up to 5.2 m- Bardsley? He has Pieters

                    1. Rinseboy
                      • 8 Years
                      4 months, 7 days ago

                      yep Bardsley. I would do that.

                      Youre TAA Maguire Kane Dilva Bruno Woods could beat him but its a big gap!

                      1. dunas_dog

                        • 5 Years
                        4 months, 7 days ago

                        Thanks- unlikely I know but have to do all I can to retain title! Also hopefully might get close to top 10K overall which would be good outcome.

                        Hindsight wonderful but if I had got Kane last week and had captained Sterling over Martial both of which I seriously considered gap would have been 15

                        1. Rinseboy
                          • 8 Years
                          4 months, 7 days ago

                          yeah tight margins. I was losing by 10 and captained Sterling and overtook him by 20! Was bricking it tho up until the city game!

        Bruno or Martial?

          Bruno, pens and set pieces

            Not sold on the rotation. He's reliable and its an important game

        Anyone not owning Sterling vs NOR ?

        If there ever were a gw this season where i'd be shitting my self for not owning a player its Sterling this gw

        1. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          I’ve brought him in and going triple city

          So for the perfect end to the season I fully expect Man City to lose 1-0 and for united va Leicester to be a 5 -5 thriller

        2. Bobby_Baggio
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Looking like it for me - Going with DSilva and Kane - if i want sterling i need to take a -4

        3. Nomar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Currently me.

          Want to keep Salah and KdB so only way to get Raz for me is to downgrade Vardy to Ayew and then Willian to Raz.

          In all honesty, the easier move for me is Rashford and Willian to Kane and Trezeguet and TC Kane. That’s for -4. Any decent team with Raz in needs a -8 for me.

          Just have to hope it’s one of those games where everyone gambles on Sterling and KdB or Mahrez ends up hauling instead.

        People selling Puli, what’s your reasoning? Wolves defence? I’m looking to bring him in on FH, he looked scary not to own last night in such a small cameo

        1. ShackledAce
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Have him, and yesterday changed my mind on selling him

        2. HurriKane
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Wolves defence is more resilient and will be a tight game.

        3. drughi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          wolves will sit back though, different game totally but still a good pick

        4. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          He was amazing yesterday but didn’t do much in the previous games.

          With Mount doing alright he might get reduced minutes
          And Wolves defence is excellent

          Still a good option though

        1 point lead in ML, rival has FH. Current front 8

        Pulisic Bruno Martial KDB Foden
        Jesus Wood Vardy

        1FT

        Just Foden to Dilva and hope for the best? Who to bench?

          Foden to Dilva sounds great! Don’t take any hits - good luck 🙂

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Thank you. Who do I bench? Pulisic or Wood I’m thinking.

            1. That TV angle at Highbury
              • 3 Years

              Would bench Wood 🙂

      • That TV angle at Highbury
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        I have finally settled on a great draft for my free hit team. The thinking behind is to get as many possible goals/assists in the lineup also in defense - any changes needed?

        Martínez / 3.9
        TAA Robbo Pieters / Bardsley Williams
        Salah Sterling Dilva(C) Martial / McCarthy
        Kane Jesus Greenwood

        1. Hadebayor Mum
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Like it - 4-4-2 or 4-3-3?

          1. Hadebayor Mum
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            4 months, 7 days ago

            3-4-3 not 4-3-3

            1. That TV angle at Highbury
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 7 days ago

              Thinking 4-3-3 - good idea?

              1. That TV angle at Highbury
                • 3 Years
                4 months, 7 days ago

                Ahh made the same mistanke - 3-4-3 🙂
