The van Dijk injury latest as Richarlison gets set for a three-match suspension

EVERTON 2-2 LIVERPOOL

  • Goals: Michael Keane (£5.0m), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) | Sadio Mane (£11.9m), Mohamed Salah (£12.3m)
  • Assists: James Rodriguez (£7.9m), Lucas Digne (£6.1m) | Andrew Robertson (£7.0m)
  • Bonus: Digne x3, Robertson x2, Keane

A thrilling Merseyside derby brought second-half goals from Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m), with points shared thanks to an injury-time winner being ruled out by VAR.

The second half was an already entertaining affair until a Richarlison (£7.9m) red card was shortly followed by the dramatic Jordan Henderson (£5.4m) goal that was controversially deemed to have had an offside in the build-up. VAR decided that Sadio Mane’s (£11.9m) arm may have strayed marginally behind the line.

It denied Liverpool the win which would have put them joint top with Everton, despite their 7-2 humiliation at Aston Villa a fortnight ago. They started this march brilliantly and with a desire to rectify that. Instead, Carlo Ancelotti’s impressive Toffees eased into the match and remain undefeated.

“I’m not surprised about the reaction, that’s what I wanted to see but it’s still only a draw. But the game, the performance and the reaction, I think everybody who is with us thought today that was pretty good.” – Jurgen Klopp

VAN DIJK INJURY

Going into the match, it was difficult to know what to expect. Both sides entered proceedings with the league’s highest xG (expected goals) tallies but the previous three Goodison Park derbies had all finished 0-0. However, continuing the absurd attacking festival of recent weeks, it took less than three minutes for this streak to end.

The returning Mane put Liverpool ahead by converting a pull-back from Andrew Robertson (£7.0m), smashing into the roof of the net past Jordan Pickford (£5.0m); we are still without a goalless draw in this Premier League season.

Minutes later came a potentially season-defining incident.

A shocking tackle from Pickford felled the offside Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) and whilst the goalkeeper was lucky to avoid a red card, van Dijk wasn’t so fortunate, limping off to be replaced by Joe Gomez (£5.4m). If the scan results for his knee injury come back with bad news, that will further diminish the defensive prospects of Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m), who are outstanding in attack but already have to cope with the unconvincing Adrian (£4.5m) behind them in goal instead of Alisson (£6.0m).

Klopp’s comments above suggest Liverpool fans should be preparing for the worst, with beIN SPORTS reporting after the game that van Dijk could be out for up to eight months with ACL damage – but it should be stressed that this has yet to be officially confirmed.

BIG HITTERS DELIVER

Four of the five most-owned FPL players participated in the weekend’s opener. James Rodriguez (£7.9m) was the first to deliver, with a through ball to Calvert-Lewin forcing a save from the nervous Adrian. The Colombian’s resulting corner was met by a towering Michael Keane (£5.0m) header to make it 1-1.

With an ownership of over 40%, Rodriguez has scored three and assisted three during his first six league games in English football. Going into Gameweek 5, his xA (expected assists) total of 2.02 was only bettered by Harry Kane (£10.6m) and he looked dangerous again here.

In the 59th minute, his inswinging left-footed cross was met by a close-range Richarlison header that hit the post. Soon after, Rodriguez himself had a low shot that was saved by Adrian. It’s a shame for his owners that a first-half yellow card meant he only finished on four points.

On the other hand, Salah had a fairly quiet game until his goal put him on a higher seven points. An Alexander-Arnold cross was poorly cleared by Yerry Mina (£5.5m), straight to Salah who lashed it in with his left foot in the 70th minute. That was the sixth of the season for a man who still managed to emerge from Liverpool’s out-of-character shaming at Villa Park with 13 points.

Yet if Mane started at a lower price – rather than both initially costing £12.0m – there is an argument that he might be the better pick of the two. His six points here ended up being relatively disappointing, considering he was denied a late assist and therefore possible bonus points. Mane was also booked for a high foot on Lucas Digne (£6.1m).

The early opener was his fourth strike so far and he nearly replicated it after another one-two with Robertson, this time just missing the far post. Being priced similarly to penalty-taker Salah was always going to count against him but he is an interesting differential who was seemingly moved to centre-forward once Diogo Jota (£6.3m) replaced Roberto Firmino (£9.3m).

Fresh off an England debut goal that was quickly followed by two more caps, Calvert-Lewin has been deemed ‘Calvert-Lewandowski’, such is his goal-scoring form. Forgiven by many for his infamous barren spell that plagued Project Restart, he has had six price rises and will surely get more after his 80th-minute equaliser.

He rose high to meet Digne’s cross, once again showcasing his aerial dominance to bury his header into the bottom corner and score in his fifth successive league game. Everton’s next opponents are Southampton (a), Newcastle (a), Manchester United (h), Fulham (a) and Leeds (h). Perhaps they are a mixed bag but, with an affordable price and such high ownership, Calvert-Lewin has become a no-brainer pick in FPL squads.

“The second goal, we avoided pretty much all situations like this over the 90 minutes but one time we let Digne cross. I heard already when the ball was in the air from the Everton bench, ‘That’s it’, because they know he is really strong in these situations and he scores that goal. Good goal.” – Jurgen Klopp

RICHARLISON SEES RED

If it wasn’t for his late dismissal, Richarlison would have been a good alternative option for those wanting Everton coverage. Priced £0.3m more than Calvert-Lewin, rather than the initial £1m difference, he is on penalty-taking duties and his 28 penalty box touches (before Gameweek 5) had only been topped by Salah and Raheem Sterling (£11.5m).

His header was agonisingly close to putting Everton into the lead but the upcoming three-match suspension quickly ends his potential and rules him out until after the November international break. His bad challenge on Thiago’s (£6.0m) leg was a clear red card and may have caused the midfielder an injury, with Klopp saying:

When I left the pitch, Thiago told me in the red card situation with Richarlison he thinks he got injured. We will see if it’s true or not, but if the player felt like this then we need to have a look.

The match had other several injuries and knocks, with Robertson’s ankle in pain after a collision with Allan (£5.4m). He soon shrugged it off, unlike Seamus Coleman (£5.0m). The full-back was unable to partake in last week’s international duties because of a hamstring injury sustained against Brighton and it was the same problem this time, replaced by debutant Ben Godfrey (£5.0m) after 31 minutes.

FULL-BACKS GET FORWARD

Liverpool again failed to keep a clean sheet but their rampaging full-backs continue to deliver attacking points. Robertson outdid Alexander-Arnold, adding an assist to his recent goal against Arsenal. Similarly to Salah versus Mane, knowing which of these to proceed with is a tough call.

Alexander-Arnold has amassed nine shots to Robertson’s four, yet the Scot has far more touches inside the penalty box. Although Robertson bagged the assist today, Alexander-Arnold went very close with a first-half free-kick. His set-piece duties are a very important factor.

Up next for the champions are home games against Sheffield United and West Ham, before a trip to Manchester City.


Everton XI (4-3-3): Pickford; Coleman (Godfrey 31′), Keane, Mina, Digne; Allan, Doucoure (Iwobi 78′), A Gomes (Sigurdsson 72′); Rodriguez, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk (Gomez 11′), Robertson; Fabinho (Wijnaldum 90′), Thiago, Henderson; Salah, Firmino (Jota 78′), Mane.

    This looks like a save FT (as it stands) right? I’m down in the depths at 3.2M OR so need to avoid unnecessary hits!!

    1FT 0.5itb
    Martinez
    Robbo, Chilwell, Dallas
    Salah (C), Son, Pulisic, Grealish
    Kane (v), DCL, Maupay
    (Forster) (KWP, Stephens, Branthwaite)

    Waiting to see how Bruno performs vs CHE before going for him. Kane to Kun from GW9 feels like it may be the move.

    Cheers

                    Basically can’t endorse any moves anymore with the way this seasons going unless the players you’re taking out are injured or crocked in some other way!

                  Do not take this hit mate, Ings cant stop scoring, you kept Soucek that far and his stats show he ll score and Aguero has midweek game and he is another injury waiting to happen. At least wait until Friday to decide

      Ah, another Pulisic punter like me
      Not tempted by him to Rashford? I was tempted by that before my WC

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        It’s one match. Surely we have to give him more time especially once Ziyech is playing which should free Pulisic up more

    3. Firminoooo

      I am down to 4m OR. Werner and Foden out for -8...... In panic mode with Jimmy(C).

        Ooof. And I bet your team looked perfectly good on paper. It’s just a horrible start for most of us tbh. 33 GWs to go!

  2. tomasjj

    Who scores the most points over the rest of the season:

    A) Jimenez + Brewster
    B) Maupay + C. Wilson

    1. LegendMoon
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      it's only a matter of time before Wilson gets his annual injury

    2. tomasjj
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Hmm...I am on B currently.

      1. LegendMoon
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        How about Maupay and Watkins

        1. tomasjj
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Yes, could well be, if he continues his form.
          Maupay and Wilson have more track record, so I feel they are safer as of now.

  3. Tony Martial
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Thoughts?

    This week= Wood and VVD ➡️ Cahill (4.5) and Kun -4
    Following week Maupay ➡️ DCL.

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Looks fine on paper

      Any other forward you can drop for Dominic? Maupay's fixtures are fine.

  4. Holmes
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    How has Salah performed recently? I'm not sure whether I should invest 12.3 on him or not.

    Don't think I'll captain him in many games as well.

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      He’ll be my captain in the next 2 probably

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Likely to be popular choice, I will probably go with Spurs boys.

    2. RECKLESS
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      two home games not best time to remove. In away games Mane is most forward and in home games I have seen its Salah. Maybe it must be klopp tactics

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Don't have him. Want to upgrade Barnes and Podence, wondering where to put money, Salah and cheapo or couple of decent midfielders.

    3. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      He's basically only reliable © atm for me.
      Looks up for it.

      Pool will need to score 2+ now that Virgil looking out.

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Hmmm, thats true. Putting in simple words, its basically Salah, Grealish, 3.9 def vs Bruno, Rodriguez, Lamptey

        The theory of only one of Mane/Salah getting mega haul has got into my head 😀

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Reliable © is most important for me.
          GL 🙂

        2. RECKLESS
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Salah choice if you captaining him next 2

    4. Bennerman
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      He's been a little bit of a nervous watch as always, gives the ball away tons and spurns lots of chances, you always feel like you're onto a blank. But then he always scores. The points speak for themselves I guess.

      The next two games I reckon are juicy as a steak so if I didn't have him I'd be either getting him in or being really, really worried.

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Being worried feels easier than getting him unfortunately 😀

    5. skodaole2
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I think you need to have some players with high ownership and some punts with low ownership. High ownership players atm (higher than 38%)are DCL, James, Salah, TAA, Son. You cant have all of them else there is no real progress in position but you have to have at least 2 to cover the team if they haul. Out of those more chances to get a haul have Salah and Son. The EVE players are very possible to give points but less possible to give 15 or 18 points. TAA from the beginning i didnt get his ownership, happy to see still 39% still own him.

      So Son and Salah are good to have imo at this point. Captaincy is a different matter, depending on how much you are willing to risk (Salah captain for me is a bit boring since i know at least 60-70 percent of the teams who have him will captain him). I d say get him at some point and leave him there.

    6. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Salah is worth it not because of ownership because he will score a lot of points and good captain option. If you think Sterling or some other can outscore him then fine.

    7. CAPTAIN MO
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Let’s see the king got 40 as captain gameweek 1. 26 as captain gameweek 4. Now has two tasty winnable home fixtures in a row.. do the maths if you want to lose out on a possible 50 points ....

    8. RECKLESS

      Weiner or Pussylic long term?

        Wouldn't you be the one who knows?

        1. RECKLESS
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Unsure thats why asking...Chelsea fixtures are a mixed bag and both not on penalties makes it tougher choice

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Oh you're actually talking about the players? 😛 I'd have Pulisic

      3. LarryDuff

        Personally prefer pussylic but each to their own 🙂

          Did you not watch the game yesterday? Werner all day long!! Those telling you pulisic chose him over werner and want you to fail...

        Like many others, I am in the Trent and Robertson owner camp. VVD is a massive loss. Alisson could be back next gw though which will be a boost. Seems like the smart option is to save my ft this gw and hold for Sheffield. Downgrade in order to afford Rodriguez/Fernandes/Rashford after.

        1. RECKLESS
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I am going Digne + Robertson long term..VVD is irreplaceble so defensive problems will continue. Alisson coming back will remove errors but setpiece weakness will continue

        2. BERGKOP

        Having sold KDB to Grealish for this gameweek I have 4.4 m sitting in bank. Assuming no injuries today/tomorrow team looks OK for next week. Which position would you spend cash? Upgrade of Podence Foden or Jiménez probably what I am thinking

        Martinez
        TAA Saïss Chilwell
        Salah (c) Son Grealish Foden Podence
        Jiménez DCL

        Forster Lamptey Mitchell Brewster

          * my rank of 3.9 m worst ever by far so probably need some differentials

        2. S.Kuqi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I'd probably ship Podence out for Hames

        3. tomasjj
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Yeah, agree on Podence, Foden.
          Maybe a Chelsea player, or Rashford?

        4. Noah’s Ark
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Jiminez to Kane/Kun looks good but not next week as Wolves host Newcastle. Podence to Bruno is where I’d be aiming to be. You probably can’t afford that without downgrading Taa also. Possibly Foden to Bruno. Ings is so consistent and looks really fit at the moment. Could go Mitchell to Ings.

          1. Noah’s Ark
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            *Brewster to Ings

          Podence upgrade. Foden can stay while he is a 6.5 starter. 15 pointer incoming there.

              My captains have worked that far and having both Kane and Son should cover me if Pereira wont perform but this GW seemed like the right one for a punty captain. At least i ll have one more day to hope 🙂

            Wow. Lateriser really should be getting on this patreon scene. He should charge the other ' pro pundits' for his service. Andy played a blinder by inviting him onto the breakfast show.

            Asked what he would do on a wildcard and picks the players LR gives him in his wc team 5 mins before the deadline

              1 month, 12 days ago

              Couldn't quite understand why many people seemed to assume he'd walk straight into that team, given he's a youngster with very little experience and Wilder is a manager who doesn't throw in lots of changes (though admittedly it is up front where he changes most).

              As a bench player, mind, 4.5 is of course a great price and serves a purpose. (I had Davis of Villa at start of season for same reason, for instance.)

              1. King Mo
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 12 days ago

                I assumed he'd walk straight in due to the fee they paid and the fact McBurnie is hilariously bad and McGoldrick isn't much better. Had two weeks training with them over the intl break too so wasn't too short a turnaround between his signing and this match etc.

                1. fish&chips
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  1 month, 12 days ago

                  Same. Let's hope he still gets decent minutes

                2. Bennerman
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 12 days ago

                  True, he can't stay a bench player for long for that money at Sheff Utd. But Wilder is pretty conservative, didn't see him throwing Brewster straight in personally. I don't know when he last even played a match, so match fitness a concern straight away as well.

                Hopefully!!! I’m on 13 after hits with Martinez, Lamptey, Taylor, Son (c), Brewster and Kane to go......... if Brewster is a no show then Klich comes in but I expect him to make an appearance at some point.

              We were all mental to assume Wilder would drop one of the two clowns currently up top for one of the most promising strikers in the league 🙁

                • 7 Years

                Never looked at Brewster as an option for my XI. He is purely a 4.5 fodder that has the potential to get minutes and score the odd goal which you could be lucky with coming off your bench.

                1. Pumpy Pro
                  • 11 Years
                  1 month, 12 days ago

                  Yep. Even at 4.5 he could be a waste of a fwd spot

                  Wilder said it was a tough decision whether to start him or not ... hint hint ... wouldn’t say such a thing if he is going to start him 😉

                Yeah but when you consider DCL is the most owner player, there is just so many options there, if you’re on the right one at the right time then it’ll be lovely

                Not really when Bamford hit the ground running from the start and was cheaper. Mitrović was the popular choice pre season. Wilson thrown in their then too.

                Yeah, I thought it would be lower too.

                Not really. He plays for Brighton. If he played for Man Utd with that price, form and nailed on-ness his ownership would be 70%.

              Bruno > Salah for free a no-brainer? Bruno was my nemesis last season so actually being on the right end of one of his hauls is a bit intoxicating, so been wavering on this planned move.
