Fabinho bolsters Liverpool defence as Werner shows promise ahead of West Brom

Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool

  • Goals: Sadio Mané x2 (£11.9m)
  • Assists: Roberto Firmino (£9.4m)
  • Penalty saves: Alisson (£6.0m)
  • Penalty misses: Jorginho (£5.0m)
  • Red cards: Andreas Christensen (£5.0m)
  • Bonus points: Mané x3, Alisson x2, Trent Alexander-Arnold x1 (£7.5m), Virgil van Dijk x1 (£6.5m)

In Liverpool’s 2-0 win at Chelsea on Sunday, Sadio Mané (£11.9m) reminded Fantasy Premier League managers of his goal-scoring advantage over Mohamed Salah (£12.1m) in away matches.

The Senegalese international found the net seven times on the road last season, behind only Roberto Firmino (£9.4m) among his Liverpool colleagues. Crucially, that accounted for 38.9% of Mané’s league goals in 2019/20, a sizeable chunk.

By contrast, just four of Salah’s 19 league efforts went in away from Anfield, 21% of his overall total, and the Egyptian already has one blank from a possible one on the road this season, this time recorded at former club, Chelsea.

Salah was full of running at Stamford Bridge, and he was enthusiastic in the shot once again, but just as was often the case away from home last season, Mané was the one to really shine.

It was his powerful run which forced a last-ditch foul from Andreas Christensen (£5.0m), resulting in a red card shortly before half-time.

And it was Mané’s famed ability in the air that put Liverpool in front. Firmino got around the back of Marcos Alonso (£6.0m) on the right-hand side, crossing for Mané to skip clear of Kurt Zouma (£5.0m) and substitute Fikayo Tomori (£4.9m) and nod beyond Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.0m).

Then, just minutes later, Mané was on-hand to capitalise on yet another catastrophic error from the Chelsea goalkeeper. After giving the ball up to Tomori, he chased down the pass-back to Kepa, blocking the attempted clearance inside the box and firing underneath the panicked shot-stopper for 2-0.

“I think in the first half Sadio was really close to blocking it there already but you just have to do it. I love it when we get rewards for this kind of situation. The first goal was a nice piece of football, everybody involved pretty much. Firmino cross and then Sadio comes in front of his man, so it’s really difficult to defend. Good goal and gave the game the right direction.” – Jurgen Klopp

It is games like this one that certainly bolsters the theory that it doesn’t matter which premium Liverpool asset you own – as long as you stick to the one you’ve got, recognising the strengths and weaknesses in comparison to the other.

Salah gets most of his work done at Anfield, he takes the penalties and usually bests his colleague for the sheer frequency of shots. Meanwhile, as evidenced by the win at Chelsea, Mané is better in the air, receives more of the so-called bigger, higher-quality chances suited to dangerous counter-attacks and typically finds the net more often away from home.

On that note, two of Liverpool’s next three matches occur on the road, Jurgen Klopp’s men set to for visits to Villa Park and Goodison Park. That said, five of their next three are at Anfield, Arsenal, Sheffield United and West Ham the next three sides scheduled to visit Salah’s hunting ground.

Liverpool’s attacking credentials were also boosted at Stamford Bridge as new signing Thiago Alcantara (£6.0m) made his debut in central midfield.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich man came on to replace Jordan Henderson (£5.5m) at half-time after the club captain sustained a thigh problem. Unsurprisingly, Thiago was able to make a big impact on proceedings, stringing together 74 successful passes in just 45 minutes, the fourth-most in the whole match.

Admittedly, such a tally was recorded against a 10-man team but this well-documented ability of Liverpool’s new number six is likely to come in handy when they face deep blocks in the future. Aston Villa (away), Everton (away) and Sheffield United (home) are three of their next four opponents who could employ such a tactic.

“Then we had to make the decision and decided for Thiago because, even without training against 10 men, he’s then pretty much the perfect player on that position, I would say. Everything he did today was completely natural. It was not all perfect but it was natural, so the passes he tries to play are natural. That’s good, really good, nice.” – Jurgen Klopp

After conceding three goals at home to newly-promoted Leeds in Gameweek 1, there was a significant improvement from Liverpool’s defence on Sunday.

That was mostly connected with an incredible, almost man-of-the-match-worthy, performance from Fabinho (£5.5m) at centre-back. The Brazilian dropped into the back-four in the place of Joe Gomez (£5.5m), who had been less than impressive against Leeds.

The Englishman was also absent through injury, as was Joel Matip (£5.5m), but even when Gomez returns, Fabinho appears to have already made a strong case to jump ahead of him in the pecking order. The arrival of Thiago also takes the pressure off Liverpool’s number three having to take part in midfield duties.

Such a drastic improvement upon moving Fabinho into defence will certainly give hope those on the Liverpool defensive double-up, especially with Villa, Everton, Sheffield United and West Ham four of the Reds’ next five opponents.

“Fabinho, yes! If Sadio wouldn’t have scored two goals, I think Fab would be a proper contender for Man of the Match. I loved his performance, he played outstanding. He helped us a lot with the ball and in defending as well, so yes, a proper performance.” – Jurgen Klopp

“Joe actually should be fine. It was not now really a big one but we have to see. We should be fine Monday already. With Joel, it could be slightly different. It’s not the worst thing in the world but a few weeks, a couple of weeks. Probably after the international break he will be ready again. So we have to see. It’s not cool. It’s crazy, in one day ‘bam bam’ but we have Fabinho and he played an exceptional game, so that was really, really nice.” – Jurgen Klopp

“I just told (Fabinho) as well I think he was Man of the Match. To keep out a striker like [Timo] Werner and don’t let him score, overall he was outstanding. Everyone knows how good he is but it shows also that we need everyone. We are a bit unlucky with the injuries now but we’ll need everyone back because it’s such a long season.” – Virgil van Dijk

However, there were a few moments on Sunday where Chelsea went close to scoring, all of which bodes well for their attacking assets in Gameweek 3 when they travel to West Bromwich Albion.

Timo Werner (£9.5m) did manage to get the better of Fabinho on one occasion in the first half. His first touch bounced off the Brazilian allowing the Chelsea forward to burst forward into space down the left-hand side of the box, firing an effort just wide of Alisson’s (£6.0m) goal.

His fizzing pace also earned a penalty in the 75th, as he drew a foul from Thiago. While Jorginho‘s (£5.0m) poor effort from the spot was saved by Alisson, Fantasy managers should consider the impact Werner has had in this department for Chelsea.

The German international has now won a penalty in each of his Premier League outings now, an ominous statistic as Chelsea prepare to face West Bromwich Albion in Gameweek 3. The Baggies have conceded the joint-highest number of shots over the first two matches and already given up two penalties in that time as well.

As a result, Werner looks a key captain candidate for Gameweek 3 both for his general goal threat anyway, as well as his tendency to win penalties. And you never know, Jorginho’s Gameweek 2 miss, and generally poor performance against Liverpool, might be enough to allow Werner to finally take one of his own after a decent record from 12 yards in Germany…

Meanwhile, there was another blank for Kai Havertz (£8.5m) who was unable to get on the ball enough. In light of Christensen’s sending off, he was replaced for tactical reasons by Tomori at the break and during the first 45 minutes he managed not one effort on goal or key pass.

Is that sufficient evidence to sell the midfielder? Perhaps… especially with James Rodríguez (£7.5m) impressing in his first two outings for Everton. But did Havertz show enough against Liverpool for the more patient of his owners to offer one last-chance-hurrah against West Brom’s porous defence? Possibly.

Some Fantasy managers might consider holding him on the strength of his next fixture alone, but there have been some promising off-the-ball runs from Havertz in his first two games. We highlighted some of these against Brighton and a false-nine role on Sunday produce a few more in the opening half of the Liverpool defeat.

The reason that Havertz was unable to make the most of his positioning, for the second match in a row, was a lack of creativity from those around him. Chelsea are crying out for Hakim Ziyech (£7.9m) to return from injury, so anyone currently invested in a Chelsea attacker should pay attention to the midweek EFL Cup meeting with Barnsley and Frank Lampard’s next two press conferences to see if he has a chance of featuring against West Brom. If he does, we could see big hauls for the likes of Werner, Havertz, Mason Mount (£7.0m) or Christian Pulisic (£8.4m), if he can regain some fitness.

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Kepa; Alonso, Zouma, Christensen, R James; Kovačić (Abraham 79′), Jorginho (Barkley 79′), Kanté; Werner, Havertz (Tomori 46′), Mount.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson, van Dijk, Fabinho, Alexander-Arnold; Wijnaldum, J Henderson (Thiago 46′), Keïta (Milner 64′); Mané, Firmino (Minamino 86′), Salah.

    Are people who work at FPL Towers allowed to have FPL teams? Imagine how easy it is to give your own players dodgy assist calls or manipulate price rises... Wonder if they have any job openings in the near future..

      Just see how many transfer out for Werner.

      It's laughable he hasn't dropped in price yet.

        Some people have suspicious histories of getting dodgy decisions in their favor. Mark, Granville etc.. Maybe they slip up and reveal themselves..

          Yeah I think covid19 is a hoax and the moon landings never happened. And the earth is flat obviously!
          The fpl is fixed has to be the best yet 😀

      You could be Bosstan of FPL

  2. jb1985

    Is having Sterling and KDB too much along with Salah and Werner? Be difficult to decide on captain week on week.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      Means ugly compromises elsewhere I think

  3. arkom

    The FPL logic; Score two goals, next fixtures Burnley and WBA and your price will drop! Br, Ings.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      This is not how logic works Angry Arkom

  4. PL Ball

    Seems like Podence is all the rage, but is he not a trap with Neto coming in?

    1. The Wise Owl
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      Podence has been playing well and with Neto on the field.

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      Podence looked good yesterday. At 5.5 it's hardly a big punt.

    3. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 11 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      Where does this silly "trap" phrase come in?
      Podence:
      Player on form = yes
      Player good fixtures = yes
      Player cheap price = yes
      Player playing for a good settled side = yes

      If Podence is dropped easy to change to 4.5.

    Should I WC this team? Starred players are issues! Possibly should have last night but still not too late.

    McCarthy*
    TAA, Justin, Egan**, Davies*
    Salah, Auba*, Rodríguez, ASM*
    Werner, Ings
    (Nyland, Mitchell, Bissouma**, Davis)

    1. nisag17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      Yes. Although, I don't think Bissouma is an issue as long as Mitchell plays the next two. But five other issues. Davies looks to be crap, zero attack in an average defence. Egan unfortunate. ASM needs to be removed as well.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        And Mitchell Plays Rodríguez and ASM (if fit) plays Davies. And Justin has City!

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      No way Jose (Rafa), you made any transfers yet?

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        Not yet mate. Backline is a total mess now. And I need City

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 13 hours ago

          Auba to KDB and ASM to Podnece (-4) and think you are fine with Mitchell coming in for Egan

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            27 days, 13 hours ago

            Will Davies play though? That also means playing Justin at Man City and Rodríguez against Mitchell

            1. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              27 days, 13 hours ago

              Should get another game at least before Reg is up to speed

            2. The Handsome Hunk
              • 5 Years
              27 days, 13 hours ago

              -8 would be suffice. Davies to Wolves Defender

    3. The Big Larsbowski
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      I had similar problems, so I wildcarded. Takes too long to fix the problems week by week. And then new issues arrive. I would WC. But do it soon so you get the price-benefits.

  6. nisag17
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Long term, which of the current Leicester full backs are nailed?

    1. acesingh
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      Castagne

      Pereira will take place of Justin when back

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        Why would Castagne play LB? Pereira will take over at RB

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 13 hours ago

          Castagne played LB on multiple occasions at Atalanta

          1. nisag17
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            27 days, 13 hours ago

            Yes that's right. Really want to get this right and avoid a transfer down the line on a cheap defender.

          2. Dosh
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            27 days, 13 hours ago

            Yes this will happen, and Pereira could be the better option when both are fit

    2. nisag17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      Right now Justin is playing left back and Castagne right back. But both are right footed. So maybe some Leicester fan has a good idea of who is primed to play left back when Pereira returns.

      1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 11 Years
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        Who says Pereira will get back in with Justin's form?

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          27 days, 12 hours ago

          His form hasn’t been that great, he will definitely displace one of Castagne/Justin

  7. acesingh
    • 5 Years
    27 days, 13 hours ago

    Has Davies lost his place?

    I’m very tempted to get Podence... but would rather play Davies this week and get Podence next week instead of losing 4 pts for a hit.

    Also any news on how many games is Marçal likely to miss?

  8. Tshelby
    • 5 Years
    27 days, 13 hours ago

    Thoughts?

    Ramsdale
    KWP, Davis, TAA
    Salah, Son, KdB, Soucek
    DCL, Wilson, Werner

    Steer,-Webster, Taylor, Bissouma

    0 FT, 0.0 itb

    I can’t get over how mad the start of this season has been. Have had two players score hat tricks for me in the first 2 GWs, one if which I captained, and am looking at my worst start ever. Absolutely bizarre scenes 😆

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year

      Too many false bandwagons will derail in the coming weeks and the cream will rise the top!

      Hit the wildcard mate. This is a season you cannot dwell IMO with the blank for both Manchesters & nice fixtures for Wolves & Everton.

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        I’ve got triple Everton and KDB already lol

          Furry muff mate. I didnt have a single Everton Wolves or City going into this week. But id already decided to WC this week before GW2 so i brought in a 3rd Arsenal & Rashford. Which didnt really pay off. Also i didnt really like my side from the getgo. So comfortable making the move to WC now

          1. Bubz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years

            I do need some Wolves players however! Fuming I sold Vinagre

              27 days, 13 hours ago

              Is the injury long term to Marcel. Im thinking Patricio, Vinny & Jimmy IN WC. But fancy Podence too. Ill be tripling up, but think the sensible move maybe double defense

    3. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      I know mate. It’s hard not to get demoralised when we are putting some solid thinking into team selections and the ranks keep on plummeting.

      You’re in a better position than me at least. I’m at 3M OR 😆 . Never been anywhere close to that low before!

      1. GRIMANDI [formerly boring M…
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        Its GW2 mate. Rank is pretty irrelevant ATM

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          27 days, 13 hours ago

          I know broadly speaking but it’s a long way back.

          Think the frustration is more that seemingly good decisions are all backfiring. Rank is just a symptom

    4. The Knights Template

      You are not doing THAT badly 1.7m is an ok benchmark.
      You can't be breathing the rarefied air of a high HOF rank all the time. Bout time you experienced fpl like the majority! 😀

        Haha yeah fair enough. Just dont think Iv ever been this low, Im usually around 500-600k at this point. Will be fine though Im sure

    Just catching up on highlights from last night. Ended the evening worse off than I’d began it thanks to John Egan. Not sure how that’s a sending off to be honest but when it rains it really pours. Terrible start to the season for me but looking forward to sorting it out and moving on.

    Wasn’t sure why so many people were going with Podence but seeing some clips he looked really good. With them run of fixtures he’s definitely an option. Currently on a Leeds option for WC. Would people prefer Podence?

    1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      yea defo make the switch to Podence.

      1. thehodge
        • 10 Years
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        Cheers mate. He may well cover not having Jiménez for another week. Werner on his last chance

  11. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    27 days, 13 hours ago

    Happy to have gotten Jesus on WC. He will be in on the points on a regular basis IMO.

    And damn, that Martinez haul was so sweet 🙂

    1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      Such a good keeper, how Sheff Utd or Chelsea didn't go for him is absurd.

    2. The Knights Template

      History does not suggest this but good luck

  12. JustSomeGuy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    27 days, 13 hours ago

    Convinced myself I'd go Auba > Sterling, but last night worried my and made me go KDB instead. I hope Sterling doesn't punish me too soon >.

    1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      same, I haven't hit the transfer button but swaying to KDB.

    2. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      I was set on Sterling but performance last night told me KDB is in form and went for him

    3. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      I was set on Sterling but KDB looked so good last night its the obvious move so I just did Auba to KDB. He's best player in the league, playing for the most attacking team and he's on pens

    4. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      Going with Sterling. I was actually happy with how it went yesterday. Now Sterling will be even more of a differential. KDB could punish me big time ofc, but hey, it is just a game.

      Would it help if you were knighted for making a sound decision? Arise, Sir Justsomeguy!

    Would you play ayling or take a hit and do ASM>podence and play him over ayling ?

    A) ASM -> Podence (-4)
    B) Adams -> DCL (-4). Mitchell backup for ASM
    C) Both -8
    D) None

    Martinez
    Trent - Castagne - Saiss
    Salah - KDB - Son - Podence - Foden
    DCL - Jimmy

    Subs: Steer, Lamptey, Mitchell & Brewster

    1. The Wise Owl

      Not sure Foden will get the gametime when B Silva, Mahrez and Torres available

    2. Chilli Heatwave
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      Very very similar to mine like it. I went for for VVD James and Rodríguez over TAA Saïss and Foden

      1. Hryszko

        I can’t not have Trent in, just feel like he’ll punish me 🙁

  16. Chilli Heatwave

    Justin likely to rise again this GW? Want to transfer him out but could do with getting the extra 0.1

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      Slowing down now and playing Man Cty next so probably not

    Got 1 FT, what to do with this team? Would you consider WC?
    Right now I am leaning towards Auba->Sterling. Could also do ASM to Podence for a hit, but probably not a good idea?
    McCarthy (Steer)
    James, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, Taylor, Walker-Peters
    Salah, Aubameyang, Son (Saint-Maximin) (Reed)
    Adams, Werner (Davis)

    Who would be your best scoring MF over next 4 GWs?

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      I'm betting on KdB.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      suspect it might be Grealish away at Fulham

    How many more games does Mitchell have left do we think?

    1. The Wise Owl
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      PVA is currently training again, I'd say another 1-2 GWs

    Waiting on ASM news (although would be nice to start Mitchell for once!), but otherwise is it time to bin Doherty?
    He's getting forward enough, and Spurs are scoring goals, but is he an expensive luxury at this stage?

    McCarthy
    TAA Doherty Justin
    Salah KDB Bruno ASM Soucek
    Werner Mitrovic

    Mitchell KWP Brewster

      I have moved him on. Though, I am on wildcard and have that luxury. He got less forward gw2 than gw1. In gw1 he was quite gung ho while in gw2 he only got forward when it was relatively safe to do so. And that has got me worried that he will only get forward a lot in games where Tottenham face a park the bus team and else they will let Bale and Son along with Kane do the attacking work. Plus with the new penalty rules, overall clean sheets look less likely unless a team is extremely dominant (Like man city or Liverpool) and doesn't even allow touches in the box. And so that adds a further negative to premium defenders outside of Man city or Liverpool. For example I am now not considering, Chelsea, ManU or Tottenham defenders. I have Lucas Digne as well from the start but can quickly get rid if required and considering it right now on wildcard.

    Keeper transfers this summer have been somewhat counterintuitive

    In a window where you could somehow(!!!) steal Martinez and Henderson from two top 6 teams, there wasn't really a rush for them

  24. You've got red on you.
