Free-flowing Liverpool display bodes well for Newcastle trip

Liverpool 5-3 Chelsea

  • Goals: Naby Keïta (£5.8m), Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.7m), Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.4m), Roberto Firmino (£9.3m), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.1m) | Olivier Giroud (£6.7m), Tammy Abraham (£7.4m), Christian Pulisic (£7.4m)
  • Assists: Sadio Mané (£12.2m), Mohamed Salah (£12.5m), Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) | Willian (£7.3m), Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.1m)

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’).

      1. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        I love how it's genuinely feasible

        1. Triple P
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          He could even grab it all for himself

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        I hope the same with Salah + Auba hat trick and Ings brace all on 23.. and then vardy nicks one to win it ..too much to ask?

      3. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Even if he had a hat-trick, Pep would probably sub him out before he scored the 4th.

    4. Triple P
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Now, find a way to get him in.. 🙂

    Quick Question

    I am about use my FH chip.

    Can I make unlimited transfers and changes UP TO the deadline or does the team get locked once I have made the initial transfer after activating the chip.

    In simple words: Can I chop and change as much as I want up to the deadline?

    1. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Nah, you can keep tinkering

    2. Plonatron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      You can chop and change as much as you want

    3. Connor's Calling
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Chop and change

      Just be careful of prices

    4. TONY123
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      You can chop and change as much as you want

  4. Connor's Calling
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Defending a small mini league lead. Pretty similar teams currently.

    Thoughts on:
    KDB / Fernandes / Walker -> Sterling (TC) / D Silva / Pieters (-4)

    (Could also lose Martial instead of Fernandes (who he has)

    1. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Decent moves, but I'd try and do it in 2FT if possible. You don't want to to cut your lead unnecessarily at this point.

      1. Connor's Calling
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Yeah- it’s tricky though as I already have 3 City and no cash!

  5. Sune
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Current FH draft:

    Ederson (Button)
    Robertson, Pieters, Bardsley (Tanganga, Williams)
    Dilva, Salah, Sterling, Antonio (Guendouzi)
    Kane, Vardy, Greenwood

    Would love to find 0.3 to get Pulisic instead of Antonio. Any ideas?

    1. Rt505
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Cheaper GK

  6. HurriKane
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Who takes the crucial penalty if united are awarded one against Leicester?

    1. lilmessipran
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Bruno

    2. Respect My Authoritah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Bruno, obviously

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I think Rashford to be fair to him does well with pressure penalties?

      That one against PSG was breathtaking - doesn't get any higher pressure than that

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Bruno is the better pen taker though

        I think his penalty record speaks for it self.

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Are all penalties created equal though... Rashford has missed a good few for sure - but a PRESSURE penalty... it'll be interesting to see

          As a utd fan - I'd be more comfortable with Bruno tbh, but Rashford obviously thrives on pressure & is possibly developing into somewhat of a big game player

    4. TONY123
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Rashford has taken crucial penalties before and kept his nerves (PSG for example), I think he'll take it.

    5. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Think it’s Rashford if they continue to alternate

  7. gooberman

    Guys, I have my BB chip plus 2 free transfers. Early team news is gonna be crucial for me, particularly the City line up. I'm going to be tuning into Andy's let's talk FPL pre deadline stream to find out the team news but he had been having internet issues when trying to stream last night.

    I believe FPL rockstar is the guy for team news however I notice now that you have to follow him on Twitter which I've tried to do but my request to follow has been pending for 3 days. Not sure what's going on.

    What is a good source for early team news apart from FPL rockstar? Thanks in advance.

    1. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      FPL Rockstar says he's not getting it this week, though he is a bit of tease so you never know. As soon as he posts it will be on here anyway.

      1. gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Yeah exactly. He's said he's not doing it before and still posted. If somebody is going to post it here, then where are they getting the information from so I can go straight to the source myself?

    2. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Remember you don’t need to follow him to see his tweet - I’m not on twitter but still get it that way! FPL Scarface is the other to keep an eye on

      1. gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        This used to be the case but not anymore. Now if I go his Twitter page via Google, it says his tweets are protected and only followers can see them. I cant see any of his tweets.

        1. Long ago I drew a walrus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          He posted a while back that he would be locking his account after reaching a follower milestone. It honestly doesn't matter because his tweets get retweeted and copied onto reddit immediately and on here too

  8. Will J 256
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Who would you prefer for 38. Mahrez or KDB?

    1. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      If money doesn't matter, KDB

    2. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Mahrez

    3. gooberman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Depends if you are trying to hold a position or chase. KDB if you are wanting to hold, Mahrez if you are chasing as much lower owned.

    How do you confirm the Free Hit chip i just get this message.

    The Free Hit chip is played when confirming your transfers and can be used once a season.

    It allows you to make unlimited free transfers for a single Gameweek. At the next deadline, your squad is returned to how it was at the start of the Gameweek.

    Please note: Free Hit cannot be cancelled once confirmed.

    But no confirm button?!

    1. Rt505
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Make the transfers first and it’s when you confirm them

    2. dontyouknowimloko
      • 2 Years

      It gives you the option when you make your transfer

    28 points ahead of my rival. Playing my FH. Should I make my team similar to his to protect my lead. Please advice.

    1. Rt505
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      As long as they don’t have a FH then shadow the team and hope your captain choice is right

      1. Gabhini Gupini
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        no they don't have FH. Thanks

    2. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      exactly the same lead and dilemma.

      sensible choice is to shadow his team but......thats so boring.

      i'm still undecided

    3. Walcoff life

      yeah, if its more imporant to you than OR

  12. Rt505

    Salah to Sterling worth a hit?

    1. TONY123
      • 5 Years

      No

    2. Walcoff life
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      no

    3. FourLokoLeipzig

      No

  13. Andrew

    Not see many FH teams with Ings, any particular reason?

    1. Walcoff life
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      other good options up front. I still think he is a good option

    2. dontyouknowimloko
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Probably because Shu defence has been generally decent

      Auba, Jesus against weak ones

      Palace was good until restart

  14. grennans2
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Is it worth keeping Pulisic on a FH after his display last night or do you still think there are better options available?

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I'd keep him - he won't be knackered, he's on fire.

    2. Walcoff life
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      was considering selling, but looked electric yesterday

    3. Gabhini Gupini
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I have Antonio. But Puli looks hungrier

    4. Mingo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      He's a great option and will probably be a differential. However Wolves have been an elite defence so far this season. Lampard has been managing a muscle injury apparently. So there's every chance that he will get 30 mins off the bench again. However he's shown that he can get points from the bench. Tough choice but I've said goodbye to him on my FH.

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

        I think it's pretty obvious to me that Lampard made a tactical decision and used Pulisic's minor knock as an excuse to justify in case it backfires. He played his players for the full match through minor injuries plenty of times before and if he was fit enough to be able to make it to the bench on Sunday, he would be fit enough to start yesterday.

        1. Long ago I drew a walrus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Agree with this. He was far and away Chelsea's best player yesterday and didn't look to be hampered at all by anything. No way he doesn't start on Sunday

        2. Mingo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          That's fair enough. For me it seems an odd tactical choice to leave your most creative player on the bench for two of the most important games of the season. I'd say he's wrapping him in cotton wool for the FA cup final.

    Does anyone fancy Grealish as a rogue 5th mid? Form is **** but Villa have to win and likely his last game. Can see the story of a Grealish double keeping them up

    Top 10k gone and just in a straight head to head shootout where we’ll likely cover each other’s big hitters and both (c) Sterling.

      He’s not really shown anything recently.

      Ultimate differential for me is Walcott - don’t know why but he often does well on the last day...

      You heard it here first... and last probably.

      good punt

    Bench Boost: best GK under 5m that isn't Pope?

    1. Mingo

      Martinez

      McCarthy

    3. TONY123

      Martinez

      Ryan - Brighton / Burnley seems high chance of 0-0 (or 5-4 there’s always some weird nothing hand with loads of goals)

      Ramsdale more risky but Bournemouth need the win and Everton on the beach

  20. TONY123

    Stupid question but I guess it's safe to say I should start Jimenez (che) ahead of Calvert-Lewin (BOU), right?

    1. HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Yes no brainier

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Chelsea defence is very leaky. And Jimenez much better form

        Bournemouth has been solid defensively lately

    2. Walcoff life
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      yeah, but he just became a father, might not start

    3. lilmessipran
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      wait for presser but Carlo hinted that Keane could start if he is fit.. surely at the expense of DCL I would assume

      1. TONY123
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        DCL surely has been one of the worst strikers I've signed in FPL, right next to Gabbiadini.

    4. No Totti No Party
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Not so sure at all, I prefer DCL

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Keane will start over DCL

  21. No Totti No Party
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    on FH Any thoughts ?

    Pope
    Alderweireld Pieters Aurier
    Martial Pulisic Salah Sterling David Silva
    Kane Jesus

    1. Walcoff life
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Nice. Jesus might not start, not sure about Alder

      1. No Totti No Party
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Do you thing Laporte will ?

  22. Vazza
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Who’s the best defender for the last GW

    A. Doherty vs che
    B. VVD vs new
    C. Digne vs BOU

    1. Walcoff life
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      C

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      C

    3. alexh87
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      B/C

  23. Dele
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Remove Martial or Bruno?

    1. Walcoff life
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      tough, Martial IMO, because Bruno on pens

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Tough probably Bruno. He look tired for the last few games but on most set pieces. Martial is OOP and is linking up well with Rashford and Greenwood so bound to score or assist

    3. HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Martial looks sharper

      1. Dele
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Bruno it is then

  24. Tonyawesome69

    I need to go different to the ML leader, what's people's thoughts on Auba?I'm not convinced by him especially with the FA cup final coming up.

    1. Walcoff life
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      ya, nothing to play for + Watford will fight for their lives

    2. TONY123
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      That and Watford will be fighting to get something from the game. They won't be rolled over.

  25. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3 months, 5 days ago

    I probably have no chance to capture ML leader- 39 points but may as well give it a go as was going for fifth win a row- but also need to not do too much damage to a decent OR. Thoughts very welcome please. Teams are below. I think I need to get 2 big hitting differentials he does not have, and not likely to get, and captain one and hope for a haul and hope his captain gets a 1 pointer. Therefore thinking one of following

    A Vardy to Kane and KDB to Mahrez -4
    B Bruno and Vardy to Salah (c) and Ings -4
    B Sterling to Mane and Vardy to Kane and captain one of them -4
    C Any other moves you can suggest to give best feint hope?

    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 as likely to set up to be as differential as possible to him (* are players he also has)
    Martinez
    TAA Maguire Doherty
    Sterling* KDB* Foden Martial* Bruno
    Woods Vardy

    Pope* Aurie* Nketiah Fernandez

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Quite a long and confusing post but possibly Salah C is your only hope with that gap

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

        Thanks for that- and for sticking with post!

    2. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      B. Salah is probably the most likely to get a 15-20 point haul out of the players your rival doesn't haul so Salah (c) is your best option.

  26. Ings_is_the_king
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Do I take out Antonio or Pulisic for Sterling TC?

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Pulisic but not much in it

      1. Ings_is_the_king
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Yeah! I have Doherty in defence and Wolves have been pretty strong defensively tbh.

    2. Mingo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Flip of a coin really. Both could score well.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Pulisic - up against a tight Wolves defence

  27. Ian Davis
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Good move?

    Willian > Sterling

    Jesus > J Rodriguez (to free up funds and allow another City player)

    1. HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Yes

    2. Walcoff life
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      yeah

    3. alexh87
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Yes

    4. HVT

    FH ready to go. Lacking Utd assets or good enough?

    Martinez
    Aurier TAA Pieters

    Good morning all. Really happy about this FH team. Thoughts?

    Pope 3.9

      Looks good mate. I’m considering on having the same 3 strikers,

  30. fcsaltyballs

    Do Liverpool smash Newcastle even though they’re going to be hungover?

    1. Vazza
      3 months, 5 days ago

      This is the million dollar question mate. I was considering doubling up on Liverpool defence but I’m not sure anymore..
