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’).

      3. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 20 hours ago

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

    4. Triple P
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 20 hours 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
          2 months, 20 hours ago

          Nah, you can keep tinkering

        2. Plonatron
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 20 hours ago

          You can chop and change as much as you want

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 20 hours ago

          Chop and change

          Just be careful of prices

        4. TONY123

          You can chop and change as much as you want

        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
          2 months, 20 hours 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
            2 months, 20 hours ago

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

      • Sune
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 20 hours 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
          2 months, 20 hours ago

          Cheaper GK

      • HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 20 hours ago

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

        1. lilmessipran
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 20 hours ago

          Bruno

        2. Respect My Authoritah
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 20 hours ago

          Bruno, obviously

        3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 20 hours 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
            2 months, 20 hours 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
              2 months, 20 hours 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
          2 months, 20 hours 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
          2 months, 20 hours ago

          Think it’s Rashford if they continue to alternate

        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
          2 months, 20 hours 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
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 20 hours 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
          2 months, 20 hours 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
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 20 hours 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
              2 months, 20 hours 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

      • Will J 256

        Who would you prefer for 38. Mahrez or KDB?

        1. Pegboy
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 20 hours ago

          If money doesn't matter, KDB

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Mahrez

        3. gooberman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 20 hours 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

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

          exactly the same lead and dilemma.

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

          i'm still undecided

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

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

        2. dontyouknowimloko
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 20 hours ago

          Probably because Shu defence has been generally decent

          Auba, Jesus against weak ones

          Palace was good until restart

      • grennans2
          2 months, 20 hours ago

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

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years

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

            I have Antonio. But Puli looks hungrier

            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.

              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.

                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

                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.

            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

          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

              • 8 Years
              2 months, 20 hours ago

              Chelsea defence is very leaky. And Jimenez much better form

              Bournemouth has been solid defensively lately

            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
              2 months, 20 hours ago

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

            Remove Martial or Bruno?

              2 months, 20 hours ago

              tough, Martial IMO, because Bruno on pens

            2. Tonyawesome69
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 20 hours 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
              2 months, 20 hours ago

              Martial looks sharper

                • 3 Years
                2 months, 20 hours ago

            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.

            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

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

              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.
