Salah tests positive for coronavirus – Egyptian FA

Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) has tested positive for coronavirus while on international duty with Egypt.

The Egyptian Football Association announced on Friday that the Liverpool midfielder returned a positive test ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Togo but is asymptomatic.

The (translated) statement read:

The medical swab conducted on the mission of our first national football team showed that our international player, Mohamed Salah, the star of Liverpool, was infected with the coronavirus after his test came out positive – although he does not suffer from any symptoms.

[He] was subject to the medical protocol after the coordination of the national team doctor, Dr Muhammad Abu Al-Ola, with his English club, Liverpool, in addition to isolating him in his room and also isolating all contacts.

In a later announcement, Egypt confirmed that a second test backed up the findings of the first:

At the time of writing, Liverpool have yet to confirm the news.

Barring any further developments, Salah will now have to undergo a period of self-isolation and will very likely be unavailable for the Gameweek 9 visit of Leicester City.

The Reds are already injury-ravaged heading into that fixture, with Joe Gomez (£5.4m) joining Virgil van Dijk (£6.3m) on the sidelines and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m) also a major doubt with a calf problem.

Sadio Mane (£12.0m) of course tested positive for coronavirus last month, returning to training at Melwood after a 10-day period of self-isolation and featuring for the Reds in the Merseyside derby, 15 days after his initial diagnosis.

Salah could feasibly return in Gameweek 10, then, if a similar timeframe of recovery, isolation and return to training pans out – although there is also the small matter of a flight back to England in between.

We have already seen West Bromwich Albion’s Callum Robinson (£5.5m) withdraw from the Republic of Ireland squad after returning a positive test of his own.

Wolves’ Conor Coady (£5.0m) is also self-isolating after coming into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

Earlier on Friday, Ireland revealed that Alan Browne had returned a positive coronavirus test after playing against England – although the Football Association of Ireland added that “no close contacts of the player” had been identified.

    Simple question. WC Y or N
    McCarthy
    Robbo Chill Justin Taylor Strujk
    Salah Son Zaha Bowen Burke
    Kane DCL Mitro

      For this week it looks fine
      Salah to Bruno with FT? And wc next week

        I have the money itb to do Son to 11.5... that was my original plan, KDB or Bruno

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Bruno of those

    2. Original - Wolves Ay We

  2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

    Who would you rather have from GW10-15?
    A) Vardy
    B) Bruno

    Vardy most likely becomes Kane and Bruno would become Son it also depends a bit on that...
    But I'm leaning towards Vardy as that would be a 343 and so much value in budget strikers

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      A

    If both Rashford and Salah confirmed out, which option is worth -4?

    A) Salah to Mane
    B) Salah to Ziyech
    C) Salah to kdb
    D) Rashford to Ziyech

    Also have Bruno, Zahaj, Grealish,
    Taylor and Brewster to come in for Salah and Rashford if no hit

    1. D.Glynn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 13 days ago

      D

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      D but I think Rashford should be fine

  4. DandyDon
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    I have Mane currently who’s just become even more of a differential! Unfortunately I can’t get in Bruno (for Son) and KDB like most probably will over the next two games. Should I just forget about Bruno this week and get in KDB.

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Surely the opposite as a % of people will do salah to Mané ?

    2. Henrik Larsson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Bruno is a trap. One good fixture against west brom and utd always struggle against a low block.

      I reckon this weeks a good differential week. I'm captaining Vardy.

  5. Miguel Sanchez

    Ziyech scored twice for Morocco yesterday in a 4-1 win against CAR

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      2 assists also, what a player

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 13 days ago

      It’s funny how owning a player changes your perspective

      I said yesterday that Semado looked great in Portugal’s 7-0 win against Andorra, that was of course met with ‘farmers’....‘I could look good against Andorra’

      Guarantee there is some of the same people who own ziyech thinking that this means he’s in great form haha

      Of course, as usual the right response is somewhere in the middle

    3. Henrik Larsson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Good info. Swapped him for JRod early despite Everton's nice fixtures. Everton have looked poor and even with Rich back I'm not confident.

    4. Puntillimon
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      The goals were Low quality

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        So were the opposition I imagine

        1. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Even lower

  6. Fantasydreamer
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    On a wildcard - Is Nathaniel Phillips worth a punt as a bench player at 4.0 with Gomez and VVD out - aware they will be suspect at the back but could be played in the easier games perhaps?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      As good a punt as any at 4.0

  7. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    Will Jota rise again before deadline?

  8. Henrik Larsson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 13 days ago

    I dont think its worth burning a transfer for Salah, especially if it's only 1 GW. Maybe if you wanted to bring in Mane as this would give you Liverpool cover, otherwise its a waste of 2 transfers. With the City fixtures coming up I dont want to waste my future moves.

    That being said, who should I bring in off my bench:

    Dallas or Lamptey?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Lamptey

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Lamptey

    3. Henrik Larsson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Cheers lads

      1. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Lamptey

  9. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    Play Lamptey or Cancelo?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Cancelo

    2. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Lamptey

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Chances are you own a villa def or Martinez also so depends what kind of player you are if you want to bet on villa to win to 0 Then what’s the point of playing lamptey or hedge your bets

        1. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Over the course of the season, you'll get more points if you play the odds of getting the most points from each of your XI slots, in theory. So if you are a rational player, you'd go for the one you think is likely to score the most points individually. If you're a romantic player, you will make the decision for the wrong reasons 😉

          1. Steve The Spud
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Fair point mate, in this instance i do think Cancelo has a better chance of scoring points than lamptey as well however

            1. Deulofail
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 13 days ago

              Fair point mate!

    3. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Tottenham's attack didn't impressed me last two so I would risk and go with Cancelo

  10. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    RMWCT?

    Martinez Forster
    PvA Lamptey Justin Taylor Lewis
    Mane KdB Bruno Soucek Berge
    Vardy Richarlison Watkins

    0.7 ITB

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Chilwell is a must on WC for me, I would do Berge to Bissouma/Riedewald to fund PVA to Chilwell assuming you want to keep money itb for Salah

      1. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        PvA less likely to be rotated and has better fixtures on paper for the next 3. Feeling punty

      2. Black Knights
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Why is chilwell a must? I’m seeing him everywhere but his run is:

        new - pretty good
        TOT - not great
        LEE - perfect
        eve - not great
        wol - difficult
        WHU - alright
        ars - difficult
        AST - pretty good
        MCI - difficult
        lei - difficult

        That’s more bad games than good over the next 10. Leeds and West Ham home are the only proper plum ones. I need to replace TAA but I just can’t see a Chelsea defender being the answer with those games.

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Underlying attacking stats. And you're overestimating wolves and arsenals goalscoring abilities. Everton haven't done well recently either

          1. Black Knights
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Yeah he bombs forward for sure. Just got a nagging feeling for some reason. May jump straight to city instead.

        2. Bookkeeper
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          i can't see many clean sheets there, though few attacking returns for Chilwell. Which isn't a given.

          clean sheet chance:
          new- high
          TOT- medium
          LEE- low
          eve- medium
          wol- medium
          WHU- medium
          Ars- high
          AVL- low
          MCI- low
          lei- low

    2. Il Capitano
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Chillwell and Grealish the notable omissions I like the power 3 mid and your choice of forwards though

        1. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Surprisingly my defense rotates well. Thanks!

      • Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Justin likely to lose his place soon? Or at least become less regular? With Castagne and Pereira on their way back?

        1. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          You are absolutely right. Just want Justin to play the next 3 (FUL, shu)
          Probably out after that.

          1. Deulofail
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Fair enough. He might not though...

      • Gandalf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        If Grealish does well during his good fixture run you'll lose a lot of ground. He's cheap so find a way to get him as your 4th mid

      • El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Differential attacking line... I like it!

    3. tbhogal
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      After the Salah news which option is best ? Have 2 free transfers.

      A) Foden > Ziyech + Saiss > Coufal
      B) Salah > Bruno + Foden > Jota

      Martinez (Steer)
      Chilwell, Robbo, Lamptey (Saiss, Mitchell)
      Podence, Salah, Son, Grealish (Foden)
      Bamford, DCL, Kane....

      1. jamiejoe
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        A

      2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        A

    4. LewanGOALski
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      If Salah about to miss only 1 game I suppose Soucek (she) or Kilman (SOU) enough coverage from the bench, right..?

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Yep

      2. Cowboy John
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Yes.

    5. goblin140
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      From GW 10 would you rather have

      A) Vardy, Ziyech
      B) Bamford, KDB

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 13 days ago

        A

      2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        A but would try to fit KDB in

    6. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Would you WC this team or better do mini wc with 2ft for -4?

      Mendy Steer
      TAA* Justin Mitchell* KWP Taylor
      Salah* Sterling Son Romeu Bissouma
      Kane DCL Watkins

      0itb, 2ft

    7. sentz05
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Should I WC?

      McCarthy Nyland
      Mitchell* TAA* Ayling (playing centrally) Justin Lascelles
      Salah* Son (poor fixtures) Barnes Soucek Bissouma
      Kane (poor fixtures) Wilson* Werner (often out wide)

      1. sentz05
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        2FTs and 2m ITB

      2. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        make a draft wildcard team and see how many changes you would make, with loads of chaos this seems a good week to do it.

    8. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Lamptey

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Deloufail

        1. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Lamptey!

    9. Il Capitano
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Obviously there's a long way to go before GW9, but what would be the best move here as it stands?

        1FT 1.6m ITB WC available

        McCarthy (Button)
        Chilwell Zouma Taylor (Justin Mitchell)
        Salah Son Sterling ASM (Bissouma)
        Werner DCL Watkins

        Contemplating the following:
        A) Salah > Bruno
        B) Salah + ASM > Bruno + Grealish (-4)
        C) ASM > Barkley/Jota, play Justin over Salah

        1. Cowboy John
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          B

        2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          B

        3. Il Capitano
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Cheers guys, always been hit adverse but B could have a huge payoff.

        4. Rossonero
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Did anyone consider what impact in positive way(FPL related) will Mo testing positive for Covid be?

          The way i see it, Mo will have a nice 2 week rest when everyone else is playing 3 games a week.

          And after beeing positive for Covid he should be safe for next few months while everyone else can get it.

          Lots of people jumping on City players but i think it could be a trap. Last game City lined up without Mahrez,Silva, Foden and Kun. With all of them available i see lots of rotation ahead. Sterling is playing all the games for club and country, as is KdB who also have little injury problems lately.

          1. Deulofail
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Maybe rotation is a good thing for your City players. Think about that!

          2. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            I'm keeping him, will likely only miss one game and this is his best start to a season with pool.

            I don't think KDB or Sterling will be traps as they will play the majority of games, city will turn it around against the weaker teams.

            1. Pep bites Kun
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 13 days ago

              Me too. Have 2 FTs already earmarked and have Klich on pens to fill in for 1 week. No biggie

        5. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Which of these defences would you prefer long term on WC?

          A) McCarthy in goal, Play 1 of Coufal/KWP/Kilman every week
          B) Martinez in goal, Play 1 of Lamptey/Coufal every week

          1. Deulofail
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            B for sure. Lamptey most weeks assuming he's still hitting 60 mins each game.

          2. iL PiStOlErO
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 13 days ago

            B

          3. Cowboy John
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Both options are perfectly fine.
            Probably B if I had to choose. And play Lamptey every week.

            1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 13 days ago

              Would you be fine playing Lamptey even vs Big6 opponents? I've seen a lot of people even have him on the bench vs Villa this week, I mean they see Grealish as a captaincy option so...

          4. GreennRed
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            B. Who are your other defenders? I'd prefer to play both Lamptey and Coufal.

            1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 13 days ago

              Chilwell Cancelo Coufal Lamptey (Neco Williams)

          This Salah saga for me highlights 2 points:

          1. The importante of having a playing bench not as much as a source of points but as enabler for your portfolio of options regarding transfers, hits etc.

          2. The sillyness of people making early transfers, some even taking hits, to catch price rises or just out of boredom. It will cost you time and yime again, and yet....

            I think the guy who got the most points in fpl last year made nearly all his transfers very early - not saying the 2 things are related just thought it was interesting

              Lots of people here feeling sad that they have to pay higher prices for players they want

              Still silly IMO, but I guess its just how some people operate...

            For point 2 i have a reason why people do it. It's more fun and you can stop thinking about fpl for a week. Its not just price rises.

            1. El Presidente
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              2 months, 13 days ago

              Yep, I mention that in my point 2 - out of boredom (more fun). Still silly in my book, but I dont pretend to have an instruction manual to play this game. Just pointing out my opinion about it.

            Yeah playing bench can be handy but i still prefer to keep them really cheap as hate having to make benching decisions each week. Zambo Anguissa, Mitchell and Kilman will do for now.

            Lots of reasons people go for early transfers, sometimes you get burned sometimes it works out fine. I'm trying to wait longer this season, normally as I never have a clue what transfers I want to make!

              I get the reason behind an early transfer, but in this Covid FPL context... its just adding unecessary risk IMO...

                Agreed, this week was probably not the best time for it as internationals bring injuries as well as COVID implications. Tbh they should have cancelled all internationals during this period.

              Yep, Just a different playing style with obviously additional risk attached, but works if TV is one of your criteria for the big guns. Personally it's never been my bag as the season tends to throw up good value options as it progresses.

              There's no steadfast way of playing this game. A flexible plan with plenty of luck seems to help though 😉

            I don't like it either. I prefer 'dig a moat'. As in WBA are going to dig a moat against Man U. I'm sure everyone will be using this a year from now.

          Calm down and accept having only 9 players this gw and use the free transfer to do TAA to Patrick van Aanholt?

          a. yes
          b. take a hit or two

          Martínez
          TAA, Chilwell, Lamptey
          Son, Salah, Fernandes, Grealish
          Wilson, Bamford, Jiménez

          Button, Burke, Mitchell, Dunne
          1 free transfer, 1.2 million in the bank

            I played 10 deliberately one week last season, its just not much fun as you are at a disadvantage before you start the week, try field a full 11 if you can imo. Although if one of the hits is to sell Salah i wouldn't do that.

              Thanks. Will keep Salah. Wilson and Jiménez were on my mind but will likely keep them.

            Pick one:
            A) Grealish - 4
            B) Anguissa

            1. Deulofail

                    Do Son —> Grealish now and you’e one free transfer ahead 😉

                    1. Bielsa Murderball
                        2 months, 13 days ago

                        yes but then i have to play anguissa...

                          What about the 4th def?

                      2 months, 13 days ago

                      I think it's worth the hit, assuming you want to sell Son anyway

                • Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…

                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 13 days ago

                  Grealish worth the hit, might captain him this week

              2. Robson-Canoe
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 13 days ago

                Is it too risky to do the following moves over the next 2 GW's for a combined -12?
                Salah + TAA + Barnes + Zaha + Maupay > Grealish + Coufal + KDB + Vardy + Coufal

                1. Robson-Canoe
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 13 days ago

                  2nd Coufal should be Bowen

                2. Holmes
                  • 7 Years
                  2 months, 13 days ago

                  Other than bringing Bowen, it looks fine to me

                3. Bielsa Murderball
                    2 months, 13 days ago

                    i would have done it if it was a -8...-12 is always too risky especially during these times

                    2 months, 13 days ago

                    I think those moves are fine, especially over two weeks and early-ish in the season. They are pretty template so don't expect to increase your rank much in the short term (unless Vardy goes on a run) but you're more likely to slip with the players you have now.

                      Vardy more than Bruno you think?

                    On WC i would be looking at city assets, Grealish for sure and maybe Vardy or Bruno.

                    Fixtures swing over the next 4 games away from Spurs, Wolves & Chelsea and towards City, Utd, WHU

                    A few Chelsea, chuck in Grealish & DCL, City & Utd mid, City defender etc

                    Lamptey would likely be the first name on my team sheet.

                  I'm not necessarily saying he's gonna haul but I just don't see Vardy not scoring against that weakened Liverpool defence for some reason... Sounds crazy seriously considering him as a captaincy shout this week even, his away form is crazy as well

                  Salahs wedding visit was prearranged through Liverpool. If he stays within a secure bubble he does not have to self isolate for 14 days upon return to the UK

                  Its clear from the wedding pictures that Covid safety protocols such as safe distancing and face masks were not being followed.

                  Therefore Salah was no longer meeting the Covid security protocols for an athlete travelling abroad. He would not be allowed to train with the other players in Egypt and would have had to self isolate upon return to the UK.

                  Instead he was happy to break safety protocols, risk getting Covid19 and also risk passing this on to his team mates in Egypt and also those in Liverpool.

                  Once he broke Covid security protocols at the wedding you would expect an announcement should have been made by the authorities declaring this and that Salah must now self isolate from the team. No announcement was made.

                  I can't defend someone who breaks privileged security protocols for his own entertainment and put other peoples health at risk. As a professional athlete he has to meet Covid security protocols he cannot just do what he likes.

                    Is this an abstract for a longer piece you're preparing?
