How FPL managers are handling Liverpool’s latest injury crisis

Fantasy Premier League managers are having to re-evaluate everything they know about Liverpool assets heading into Gameweek 9.

Their start to the season has been plagued by a series of injury problems including the loss of a fit-again Alisson (5.9m), then long-term knee injuries to Virgil Van Dijk (6.3m), Joe Gomez (5.4m) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (6.3m).

Trent Alexander-Arnold (7.3m) now has a calf problem, there have been muscle issues for both Fabinho (5.4m) and Jordan Henderson (5.4m) as well as a knock for Thiago Alcantara (£5.9m), and Andrew Robertson missed out on Scotland’s game over the weekend thanks to his hamstring.

Couple all of this with Mohamed Salah (12.3m) returning a positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test on international duty and Liverpool are stricken right across the board.

The most frustrating factor in all of this is the uncertainty. It is entirely possible that some of the Reds’ flagged assets could feature in Gameweek 9, we just don’t know which ones yet.

So what should Fantasy managers do about the problem? Do we sell our Liverpool assets and wait for the injury storm to pass? Or should we hold on and bench them for the time-being?

We asked members of the Scout Network, to see what they had to say on the subject.

I think the easy plan, that many have already set in motion, was to avoid Liverpool’s defence for now. Clean sheets weren’t a regular occurrence anyway and Robertson is the only one providing much in the way of attacking returns. I would move the money into midfield and attack for now. It’ll be interesting to see how Liverpool line up over the next few months with the shortage of centre backs. Will Robertson continue to push forward in attack or will he take a more conservative approach to protect the defence? Will a £4.0m defender for the champions become a viable option?

Is now the right time for some restructuring? 2

For Gameweek 8, I had Salah, Sadio Mané (£12.0m) and Robertson. When Alexander-Arnold was taken off with an injury, I sold Robertson and Rhian Brewster (£4.5m) in order to get Ollie Watkins (£6.1m) and Ezri Konsa (£4.7m) with four-point hit. Now we know Salah has tested positive for COVID-19 and, since I do not have Bruno Fernandes (£10.6m) or a Manchester City attacker for their promising run of fixtures, I feel tempted to sell the Liverpool ace. Then again, the Reds are to play Brighton and Fulham in Gameweeks 10 and 12 respectively, in between a home clash with Wolves, so Salah may punish his sellers. For the time-being, I am sticking with him, playing someone from the bench and hoping that he fetches me a haul when he returns for the Brighton game. However, if someone has not made a transfer already (unlike me), they could get Fernandes for Gameweek 9 for the West Bromwich Albion match and bring Salah back in Gameweek 10 or 11.

With limited exposure to Liverpool’s woes in just owning Salah, I’m going to hold him and hope he is capable of a fairly quick recovery. Once again, we are reminded of the importance of a strong bench this season! Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m) will take Salah’s slot and I quite fancy his chances against a struggling Sheffield United. It is, however, a few days before the deadline and, if I know myself, then temptation to hop onto someone else may prove too strong.

Sadio Mane

I’ve not had more than one Liverpool player in my team at any stage this season. Admittedly, my decision to start the season without Salah backfired big style when he was gifted two penalties in Gameweek 1. The only Liverpool defender I. have owned van Dijk for the first four Gameweeks and, in a rare instance of good timing, he was a makeweight for my Salah transfer in Gameweek 5 just before Jordan Pickford (£4.9m) injured the centre-back. Fortunately for me, I have not been punished for staying away from Liverpool’s defence since then. Looking ahead, I see no reason to be invested in their backline, given that my spreadsheets predict they only have strong prospects of a clean sheet in one of the next six Gameweeks. Offensively though, Liverpool are predicted to score at least two goals in each of their next six Premier League matches, and a case could have been made for a Salah and Mané double0up prior to the Egyptian’s positive COVID-19 test. I am of the opinion that now would not be the time to be planning on going without Salah for the medium/long-term. Therefore, I would be recommending Wildcarders have a plan for how they will integrate Salah back into their teams once he is available for selection again. Diogo Jota (£6.5m) looks an enticing proposition now, of course, especially if managers are in the luxurious position of being able to hop off Salah in the short-term.

Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk

Looking at Liverpool’s upcoming fixtures (Brighton, Wolves and Fulham) I do feel that, despite the injuries, they are likely to pick up one or two clean sheets. I also wonder how the injuries will impact Robertson (if fit). Will he be on more set pieces? Will he have to take on more of the attacking responsibility? There’s a lot of uncertainty but I also think there’s a lot of potential upside for Robertson owners. I certainly won’t be selling for a hit. I could be tempted to sell for a free transfer but is Robertson my biggest issue right now? Probably not.

Liverpool’s Andrew Robertson

This international break has proved to be a tough time to own Liverpool players. With Gomez picking up a knee injury in training with England, potential injuries to Robertson and Henderson while away with Scotland and England respectively as well as a positive test from Salah whilst on duty with Egypt, on top of a series of other injury concerns we as FPL Managers are now left with key decisions to make.

The injury to Alexander-Arnold in Gameweek 8 made the decision to sell him easier and right now not owning a Liverpool defender feels like a good idea especially as there are so many injuries to key Liverpool defenders as well as a lack of clean sheets. Even if Robertson recovers from his hamstring injury ahead of the Gameweek 9 deadline I’m not sure he is worth the money you need to invest in him when he is playing in a makeshift defensive unit.

Salah is a more complicated issue. His positive test leaves him isolating in Egypt until he returns a negative test – hopefully this will mean only missing one Gameweek. Having owned Salah since pre-season I would stand to lose 0.2m in him by selling now and, therefore, for me, I will be holding him as I will want him back as soon as he is allowed to play again – especially right now when attack is Liverpool’s best form of defence.

    I am planning to hold and bench Salah. But does the 10 day isolation mean he also misses the Brighton game even if he tests negative and comes back on Thursday?

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years

      No.

      MaddockMirror It is likely Salah will be allowed to return to training next Monday, if his test returns negative. If he does, it gives him a chance of facing Atalanta in the Champions League. #awlfc [@MaddockMirror]

        Great. I hope he manages this - Salah must also convince government officials that he has remained in an international football travel corridor, which would allow him to relax strict rules saying anyone returning from abroad into the UK must self-isolate for a period of 14 days.

          Surely he can’t do that if he went to his brother’s wedding? I have 1FT and (despite having owned Salah all season) probably will sell for Bruno - particularly as I also have Robbo flagged, a bench of Saiss Mitchell Davis and no Manc players

            • 4 Years

            Based on further news, I will probably hold. The only issues I have in my team are Mitchell and Salah. I am planning to play Podence.

  2. Parsnips

      My team with 1FT and 3.0mil in the bank...

      Martinez
      Robo-Chilwell-Coufal
      Salah-Zaha-Barkley-Fernandes
      Werner-DCL-Watkins

      Ryan-Anguissa-Mitchell-Dunne

      Is doing Werner>Bamford and Anguissa>Ziyech a good option? If not what transfer/s should I do?

      1. NejiHyuuga01
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        I wouldn't take Werner out , he seems in good form. I would upgrade Dunne or Mitchell so you can field 11 players this GW.

        1. Parsnips
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Yeh tbf. Stupid idea from me. Could just upgrade Anguissa > Soucek or Dunne > maybe van anholt or lamptey

            1. NejiHyuuga01
              • 3 Years

              You have enough money so spending high or low on your replacement depends on your long-term plan and who you opt to bring in later.

          Wait for more team news but reckon saving transfer to get Man City in next week is best plan

            Double up or triple up?

        3. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Keep Werner. Barkley to Grealish or roll FT

          1. Third Eye Vision
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            I’d do Barkley to Grealish too. Keep Anguissa. Otherwise you’ve got too much invested in your 8th attacker.

      2. GrandGaming
          2 months, 4 days ago

          3-5-2
          McCarthy
          Chilwell Targett Lamptey (Kilman and 3.9)
          Ziyech Fernandes KDB Salah Grealish
          Watkins DCL (Brewster 4.5)

          OR

          3-4-3
          Martínez
          Chilwell Cancelo Lamptey (Coufal and 3.9)
          Grealish Salah KDB Fernandes (Soucek)
          DCL Bamford Watkins

          Essentially, this is
          1. Ziyech vs
          2. Bamford and upgraded defence

          Please let me know your opinions. I'm on WC.

                This is the other way round from your original post. Bamford option

            A) Salah + Podence > Bruno + Ziyech (bench Wilson)
            B) Son + Wilson > Bruno + Watkins (bench Salah)

                • 3 Years
                2 months, 4 days ago

                Well not for sure. But leaning towards B. Depends on how long Salah is out for

            Does anyone see Richarlison as being a good differential to DCL? Or not worth the risk?

              he's a ball player and he is rested, don't see a risk other than his annual 3 game red card. but already got his card.

              • 3 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              I had Rich at the start of the season, he looks more dangerous than DCL but at the end of 90 minutes you’re frequently sitting on 1 point (card magnet) and DCL’s waving at you with a brace. It’s cruel.

              Mo Salah looks certain to miss Sunday’s clash with Leicester. Even if he returns to Liverpool and is given the COVID-19 all clear, under new arrangements set up by the league, he must complete the 10 day isolation period before he is allowed to play again. #awlfc

                  Dude you don't know what you're talking about. So you choose to sell Salah, good for you, but do everyone else the favour of not boring everyone else to death because you're having to work overtime to convince yourself you've done the right thing

                    I'm not saying anything lmao. I never had Salah in the first place, I'm asking a question and if you don't appreciate it then you'll have to deal with your issues yourself.

                  After two positive tests, I doubt a third will make any difference.

                  Anyone keeping him is hedging their bets that he'll likely miss one game. NOBODY has been expecting he would play. This is just managers who are insecure in their decisions trying hard to look secure

                      I haven't stated any claim what the right thing to do is here, so you can drop making up absolute rubbish about me 'claiming to be an expert' in anything.

                      It's the same trick you just pulled there as the claim that 'everyone is expecting Salah to play'. It positions 'everyone' as incorrect and you as correct, but it's a lie you told, a straw man.

                      I've grown a lot since then and have learnt to accept and moe forwards. You'll make it though, buddy.

                    When became clear that Salah will miss this GW I thought to myself "Ha ! That's why I've been keeping you in my team young Rhian ! Go and shine my lad !"

                    ...well that and the fact that he is only 4.5m playing forward.

                Assuming Salah is out..

                Robbo + Bissouma ->

                    Depends if the injuries are gonna keep rollin' but yeah, I know. Any suggestion?

                      Just play Ayling or Justin and save if you want to keep Salah

                        Would have to be both of them, or Ayling + Bissouma, if Robbo is out.

                            Probably gonna make the moves if he's ruled out. Even if it means benching headaches! With the amount of injuries we are seeing right now I'm thinking it might solve itself.

                    Its better if he gets a niggling injury that makes him "touch and go" for weeks but never returning fully fit like Martial last season.

                Ziyech has scored for Morocco. His International games have now finished, no injury reports.

                  He looks like the real deal. I am getting him in after the Spurs game. I hope he won't be 9 by then

                Which option would you choose?

                A) Phillips + Grealish + Werner + Martial
                B) Taylor + Bruno + Richarlison + Watkins

                  B with Grealish over Bruno + cash

                Watkins + 1.8m or DCL/Richarlison?

                Anyone fancy the KDB Sterling double up after next week? Not hearing much love for both

                  I am strongly considering it. It is between that double up or United double up. I am torn for now

                  I am 100% doubling up

                Nostalgic seeing Thuram the younger playing for the french national team. His father was a beast!

                Haven't taken any hits. 1.7 ITB and 0 FT's

                Gtg?

                Martínez
                Chilwell - T.Silva - Cresswell
                KDB - Fernandes - Son - Grealish - Bowen
                Kane - Bamford

                (Steer, Lamptey, Brewster, Mitchell)

                  GTG, strange seeing Lamptey on the bench but probably right

                    Thanks. Kinda hope Chilwell misses out this GW. Most have him, but I guess getting Lamptey in instead is one of the better bench replacements 😉

                Looking to trade out Mitchell
                Best DEF 4.6 or less?
                Thinking Targett or Coufal

                  Targett

                  Both good options

                Someone has offered me Barkley and Adams for Lookman and Vardy in Draft.

                Do you think it's worth the swap?

                  Absolutely not. Keep Vardy at all costs

                Perhaps this is a stupid question, but are penalties factored into the Shot Accuracy and Goal Conversion percentages?
