Antonio update, Liverpool’s defence and Klopp on Jota: key FPL notes from Anfield

Liverpool 2-1 West Ham United

  • Goals: Mohamed Salah (£12.4m), Diogo Jota (£6.3m) | Pablo Fornals (£6.4m)
  • Assists: Xherdan Shaqiri (£6.4m)
  • Bonus: Fornals x3, Jota x2, Salah x1

Liverpool laboured to a win over West Ham that raised yet more questions about a defence with just one league clean sheet to its name all season.

Key injuries have hugely reduced coach Jurgen Klopp’s options at the back, with the latest player coming in at centre-half, Nathaniel Phillips (£4.0m), handed his league debut.

Nat’s The Way To Do It

It’s fair to say the 23-year-old let nobody down, earning himself plenty of post-match praise from Klopp.

He kept it really simple tonight, which was incredibly important for us. The boys supported him well and he supported the boys; he was vocal and he spoke on the pitch. In the challenges he was there, really aggressive but no fouls really, maybe one. It was a really good game.

Whether he keeps his league place is another matter, however.

Klopp has been non-committal about Joel Matip‘s (£5.4m) return from the knock he picked up in Gameweek 5, but with the games coming thick and fast – Champions League in midweek and a trip to Manchester City on Sunday – Phillips looks likely to be in the frame for at least one of those fixtures.

But however tempting a bargain basement Reds defender might be, Phillips is still a long way off holding down a regular spot in the team.

The Defence Rests

Not that Liverpool defenders, at any price, have been overly attractive this campaign.

Only Andy Robertson (£7.1m) has come close to justifying the lofty price tag that comes with being a member of the Reds’ backline, and that’s been thanks to the goal and two assists he’s produced to boost the one and only clean sheet.

Those attacking returns have saved him from sales…until now. After five weeks of ownership increases, the left-back now finds himself in the top 15 for Gameweek 8 transfers out.

His fellow full-back, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m), knows all about that feeling – he’s lost managers every week since Gameweek 1’s 4-3 win over Leeds United.

Neither were at fault for Saturday’s goal, scored by Pablo Fornals (£6.4m). The midfielder reacted smartly after Joe Gomez‘s (£5.4m) weak clearing header came straight to him, guiding the ball past Alisson (£5.9m) and in off the post.

Alexander-Arnold’s previously nailed-on supply of attacking returns has dried up to just one assist from seven starts and the full-backs managed only one chance created between them – take a bow, Trent – and one shot each against West Ham.

All of that, and Man City and Leicester to come next, suggests more backline sales for the foreseeable future.

Jota Joy

The ownership levels of big hitters Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) and Sadio Mane (£12.0m) have remained rather more stable, although a net -8,171 missed out on an eight-point haul for the former when he earned, and then scored, a penalty to level the score on Saturday.

The spot-kick award was generous, with referee Kevin Friend probably right to deem the contact from Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) sufficient to be deemed a foul, if not enough to warrant Salah’s dramatic reaction to it.

Friend then went on to deny Mane owners an assist when substitute Diogo Jota (£6.3m) scored from what seemed to be a rebound caused by the Senegal international’s challenge on Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m).

VAR invited the referee to take another look at the incident and he rightly chalked off the goal for Mane’s sliding tackle on the goalkeeper as it had little to do with the ball.

Minutes later, Jota scored again – from fellow sub Xherdan Shaqiri‘s (£6.4m) canny pass, and that effort stood.

The signing from Wolves now has three goals from his last three matches in all competitions, and three from five in the league, prompting some love from Klopp.

Diogo is in a good moment. He is a good player and we are really happy that we could make that signing, so it is a proper win-win situation. I think we can help him and he can help us a lot.

Jota certainly helps add some flexibility to Liverpool’s system as he started (and scored) in a 4-2-3-1 formation in Gameweek 6.

Klopp, however, reverted to his tried-and-trusted 4-3-3 against the Hammers and while the demands of this season will require frequent squad rotation, it’s hard to see Jota consistently breaking up the German’s preferred front three of Salah, Mane and Roberto Firmino (£9.3m) on anything but an occasional basis.

That’s not stopping managers buying into him – Jota is currently in the top 10 for Gameweek 8 purchases.

But there are nine midfielders around his price with more than the 26 points Jota currently has in Fantasy Premier League (FPL). All have played at least twice as many minutes, so while his output has been impressive – he’s scored three goals from 10 attempts – Jota will do well to sustain that kind of form unless his pitch-time improves.

Hammer Time?

It’s been a long time coming, but West Ham’s schedule is now finally easing, with their fixture list looking generally attractive all the way through to the end of January.

David Moyes’ men have acquitted themselves excellently through a brutal start to the season and their key attackers, such as Fornals and Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m), could well attract plenty of investment from now onwards.

The pair are in the top ten for attempts among midfielders, with 12 apiece, with Fornals the team-leader for chances created (six).

How the Hammers manage without striker Michail Antonio (£6.2m), who missed the match with a hamstring injury, could be key, although Moyes has been upbeat about the issue:

We’ve already got him on the bike and he’s moving, which for the type of injury we’re really pleased with. He had another scan and an ultrasound yesterday (Oct 29) as well. He’s in a good place.

All three midfielders should benefit from an improved schedule, with Fornals leading the way both in terms of points (39 to Bowen’s 33 and Soucek’s 18) and attempts on Saturday – only Salah could match him for the three shots he had.

Fornals looks the most rounded option, with two goals and three assists thus far, while Bowen has three goals to his name.

But despite facing Fulham next, neither are in the top 30 for transfers-in. 

In fact, only one Hammer is and it’s defender Aaron Cresswell (£5.0m), presumably because of the three assists he’s produced this season.


Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson, Gomez, N Phillips, Alexander-Arnold; C Jones (Shaqiri 70), Wijnaldum, J Henderson; Mané, Firmino (Jota 70), Salah (Milner 90).

West Ham United XI (3-4-2-1): Fabianski; Cresswell, Ogbonna, Balbuena; Masuaku (Lanzini 88), Soucek, Rice, Coufal; Fornals, Bowen (Benrahma 89); Haller (Yarmolenko 74).

      Spurs plum fixture hard to ignore!

        So is pool defense... 😉

    Some Sunday Funday statistics to keep y'all entertained:

    20/21:
    Total penalties given = 34
    Total matches played = 66
    % = 51.5 or every 175 minutes
    % Penalties scored = 89%
    Penalties as a proportion of total goals scored = 35%

    19/20:
    Total penalties given = 92
    Total matches played = 380
    % = 24 or every 372 minutes
    % Penalties scored = 78%
    Penalties as a proportion of total goals scored = 9%

    All time:
    Total given = 2243
    Total matches played = 10952
    % = 20.5 or every 439 minutes
    % Penalties scored = 83%
    Penalty goals as a proportion of total goals scored = 8%

    The story so far:
    More than twice as many penalties have been given so far this season compared to last. This proportion is even higher compared historically. Contributing factors may include VAR, the dodgy handball rule, worse defences, lack of crowd pressure. Is this a statistical anomaly (even with ~20% sample base) or will it continue to wreck havoc on premium defenders points tallies?

    This data also works in tandem with the fact that 11% more penalties have been scored this season compared to last. This could be a result of the penalty infringement rules surrounding GK's and lack of crowd pressure affecting the spot kickers composure.

    Also the proportion of penalties compared to total goals scored is staggering - over 1/3 goals are now penalties, compared with the 'usual' 1/10.

    The longer this season goes on, the more I am thinking of having 8 penalty takers in my MID / FWD slots (boring I know...)

    So now for question time - how many penalty takers do you have in your squad and what is your OR? I currently have 3 and my OR is 822k.

    1. teneighty

      2.5 and Zaha. Maupay is the half.

      OR 2.2M and falling.

    2. Black Knights

      3 and 28k.

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Bale at the moment but it looks way off genuinely, not sure if an error has been made

      1. Chrisitis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Why? Jota 24 bps yesterday.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          More to do with Kane rather than Bale, unless Kane really did get loads of deductions

    3. Orion
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Bale as it stands

      1. jg7u
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Well I was thinking something along the lines of:

        Mendy(or Martinez)
        Chilwell - Lamptey(if not injured) - West ham def.
        Zaha - Salah - Son - Grealish - Ziyech
        DCL - Kane
        (Konsa(or Justin or similar) - Brewster - Fodder)

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

          And what will you do when city have bur, ful, manu, wbrom in GW10?

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Maybe get Kane and Son out with their tough fixtures. Or maybe just one of them and downgrade someone else like Ziyech.

          3. jg7u
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

      1. jg7u
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Antonio really the only 3rd forward I'm interested at the moment and he is injured. Would be a hit as well.

  6. Forever In Our Shadow
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Would a chelsea defence double up be too much? Chillwell and Zouma?

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

      Considering it also with Zouma

    2. Orion
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I did with Mendy+Zouma

    3. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Not too much but don't like their fixtures for cs gw 10 onwards

    4. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    How would you sort this mess?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Team is not too bad. Maupay to Bamford/ Wilson

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Cheers.
        Looks like Ings out will have to be priority depending on injury news.
        Will ship Maupay too if he's confirmed out or else downgrade Robbo to do Ings > Werner.

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Actually I missed Ings, he should be a priority. One or two hits should be OK

    2. antis0cial
      • 4 Years

      Wait on updates for ings/Jrod/maupay

  9. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years

    Is anyone able to fully confirm the Spurs match BPS are correct?
    They look way off, for Kane and Bale in particular

    1. Orion
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Members area match info is always right... So it’s Bale

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Thanks, that’s crazy!

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Something like this:

      Goal for a mid = 18
      Big chance created = 3
      2 key passes = 2
      Game winning goal = 3
      Playing 1 to 60 mins = 3
      Foul conceded = -1
      Tackled = -1
      1 shot off target = -1
      Total = 26

      Kane
      Goal for a fwd = 24
      Playing over 60 mins = 6
      3 recoveries = 1
      3 CBI = 1
      6x tackled = -6
      1 shot off target = -1
      1 big chance missed = -3
      4 fouls conceded = -4
      Total = 18

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years

        Thanks for this, though I’m not sure if you can share this info

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Wanted to see why Kane was so low
          Didn't realise he was tackled so much

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Me neither, thanks

        2. El Fenomeno R9
          • 5 Years

          Report him

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Go away

    3. Ógie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Seems strange that Bale would get all 3 bps alright after only coming on as a sub.

      All the same he got the winning goal and it's not as if anyone else out there was too inspired looking.

  10. Tonyawesome69

    What to do here with 2FT?

    A. Robbo to Chilwell/Zouma
    B. A + Vassilev to Wilson/Bamford/Antonio (if fit)
    C. Taylor to Coufal
    D. Other suggestions

    0.4itb 2ft
    Martinez
    Ayling Justin TAA* Robbo*
    Grealish Salah Son Rodriguez
    DCL Kane
    (Peacock Bissouma* Taylor* Vassilev*)

    1. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      One or both of the pool defenders out.
      Rest of the team looks good.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        I think the stats are swinging in favour of TAA over Robbo if you also consider the UCL

  11. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Tottenham's defence affects Son-Kane more than anything.
    Mourinho went back to his old habits...
    They are playing attacking football only when they are not in front,
    If they score then they park a double decker bus.
    Kane's history vs Crystal Palace Arsenal Leicester Liverpool + pens make him undroppable for me.
    It's not crazy though to think of replacing HM Son (especially if Bale becomes a starter) with lots of options like Grealish Ziyech Salah KDB available for a midfield of four.

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I agree. Too many options in midfield. City alone will need our attention soon.

  12. Will J 256

    2 months, 27 days ago

    What’s everyone’s thoughts on Kane and Son after the West Brom game? Fixtures turn and some tricky decisions to make!

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

      WC time

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Just keep and enjoy the points

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Keep Kane, undecided on Son

      1. Firmino
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        I think Son is the one to keep.

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          I'm still undecided on whether Bale is positive for him or not
          Kane always has penalties which are so valuable in FPL nowadays!

    4. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Keeping Son and planning to sell Kane to fund KDB or Sterling.

    5. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I’ll keep one. Maybe both.

      Games against better teams may suit them more

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

    Ziyech or Bowen to replace Puli?

    1. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Ziyech

    2. Orion
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Ziyech no doubt

    A) TAA Brewster to Coufal Werner (-4)
    B) Saiss Barkley to Lamptey Ziyech (-4)

    Lamptey could be coufal

    1. Orion

      2 months, 27 days ago

      Yeah, Coufal is looking a great value

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      B with Coufal

  15. ZAWAd25

    2 months, 27 days ago

    Do TAA + Saiss >> Zouma + Coufal for free now before any price changes?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      You're not going to get priced out in the moves. I would wait

      1. ZAWAd25
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        I know but price changes could prevent other moves

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Well you know the risk....

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      None of those are near falling or rising

      Sorting the defence the priority here?

      2FT 0.1M ITB WC available

      McCarthy (Button)
      TAA Saiss Justin (Mitchell Taylor)
      Salah Son Sterling ASM (Bissouma)
      Werner DCL Watkins

      Thinking Saiss + Justin > Zouma + Coufal

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        I like these moves

      If anyone is worried about how they’re doing so far this season, take comfort in the fact that David Luiz is to drop in price to 5.4m tonight, implying that there are people out there that willingly had him in their team for 5.5m

      2. Ode
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Arsenal has the best defensive record in the league and David Luiz has done well under Arteta

    • George James
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Best move for this bunch?

      2FT 0.7itb

      Martinez • Steer
      Lamptey • James • Robbo • Coufal • Saiss
      Son • Salah • Podence • Foden • Bissouma
      Werner • Kane • DCL

      A) Saiss + Foden >> Kilman + Ziyech

      B) Saiss >> Kilman (roll ft)

      C) Saiss + Foden >> Chilwell + Fornals

      D) something else?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Like the look of C with West Ham and Chelsea fixtures. Wolves good defensively but risk of rotation maybe with Saiss.

      Would you transfer out any of Liverpool trio?

      1. bitars
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        i Would. Time for De Bruyne.

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Robbo out before Mane

        1. Firmino
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          To who?

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Zouma or Cresswell

    • bitars
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      What happened when Villa got the penalty. Did Grealish try to steal it or did Watkins steal it from Grealish?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Grealish gave it to Watkins

    • Fernandito
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Trent and Foden to

      A Coufal & Ziyech
      B Chilwell & Ziyech (have james)
      C Chilwell & Grealish(have Watkins)

      1. Buck The Trent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        B

      2. Tonyawesome69

        C long term

      Not a clue what to do?
      No WC 1FT 1.2 ITB

      Martinez
      Lamptey Chillwell Saiss
      Son Pulisic Grealish Salah
      Kane Maupay Ings

      :Forster,Targett,Mitchell,Burke.

      1. bitars
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Sais or Mitchell out for West Ham defender or Kilman.

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Probably look into transferring out Ings, Maupay, Saiss and Pulisic in that order

      3. thetommy14
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Ziyech in for Pulisic if not fit that's what I'm doing

      4. That Was Easy!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        What to do with this mess? No WC

        Ryan
        TAA Robbo Saiss
        Salah Bruno Son Podence
        Bamford Jimmy Maupay

        Steer; Alzate, Mitchell, Konsa...0.5 in the bank.

        Definitely needs some hits, 6 players who didn’t play, double Pool defense, triple Wolves.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Wolves, TAA probably the ones that need to go first.

          Saiss + Jimmy > Chilwell + Wilson/DCL?

          1. Buck The Trent
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            This looks good

        Chance of Bale starting next league game?

        1. Buck The Trent
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Wait until midweek europa

        2. Sco
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Depends if he starts in Europa on Thursday or not.

      6. Sco
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Coady to Bellerin for free?

      7. Alnair
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        A) Cresswell
        B) Lamptey
        C) Other

      8. ZAWAd25
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Chances of

        TAA dropping

      9. El Copo
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        How good did Ziyech look? Worth doing Fernandes to Ziyech for free?

      10. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        For anyone who didn’t see the Villa game or hear about this.
        When Grealish won the penalty he had ball in hand and looked like he allowed Watkins to take, which implies Grealish is the designated taker, of course it could be because he won it.

        Could be an important fact for anyone debating mid priced mids.

        Evening all!

        47 points all out this gameweek, another disappointing return. 2FT, 0.9ITB, what to do here?! Open to a -4 but thinking a bit more long term also.

        Martinez - 4.0
        Robbo - Saiss - Kilman - Lamptey
        Salah - Son - Jrod
        Kane - DCL - Maupay
        (4.0 - Soucek - Barkley - Targett)

        A) Defence - Saiss is obvious target here, thinking of getting in Zouma, Bellerin or Vestergaard (although feel like I'm maybe chasing the points now). I could go Saiss&Targett > 2 of those?

        B) Midfield - How do I get KDB in here? Possibly Salah & Barkley > KDB & Ziyech? Ideally would like KDB & Bruno/Rash but struggling to afford.

        C) Attack - Maupay to Adams/Antonio looking likely this week. Wondering if it's worth dropping Kane after WBA game to free up funds for midfield improvements, seeing as I already have Son cover?

          Martinez - 4.0
          Robbo - Zouma - Kilman - Lamptey - Coufal
          Salah - KDB - Son - Jrod - Soucek
          DCL - Adams - Wilson

          How does that look? I could in theory work to that for GW9 or 10.
