Debating whether to get Salah straight back into my FPL team for Gameweek 10

After much deliberation in Gameweek 9 I finally opted to transfer Mohamed Salah (£12.2m) out of my team at 00:40 on Saturday morning. That’s the latest I’ve made a transfer all season.

Instead of opting for the obvious Bruno Fernandes (£10.8m) move, I went for the long term play and brought in Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) who I knew I’d want for the foreseeable. 

With two free transfers it didn’t seem that risky to get rid of Salah, especially with the potential for him to miss an additional Gameweek.

As you can see below it didn’t go well.

andys-article 5

With just 50 points it undid all the hard work from the Gameweek before and saw a big red arrow.

The big question is whether to get Salah straight back in as I look at a team without Jamie Vardy (£10.2m) and wonder whether I really want to captain De Bruyne.

andys-article 6

From what Klopp has said it looks as though he’s now available and back training

“Salah trained with the team yesterday and looked really good. The test was negative so, if nothing changed since yesterday, he is available. Now we have to see what we do with that because he was quarantined until three days ago.” – Jurgen Klopp

There’s still no guarantee he’ll play against Brighton, so I’ll be heavily focused on watching the outcome of the Champions League game between Liverpool and Atalanta on Wednesday.

The ideal situation is that he plays some part in the game and comes through unscathed. Given that he had no symptons and is now back training you would think (or is it hope?) that he’ll be fine to play a Brighton side who will be down one of their key players in Tariq Lamptey (£4.8m).

The reason I’m so keen to get him straight back is simple, captaincy. I think Jamie Vardy is the best captaincy option for Gameweek 10, but Salah gives a great option, not just for this week but for many Gameweeks to come:

  • Gameweek 12 – Fulham (a)
  • Gameweek 14 – Crystal Palace (a)
  • Gameweek 15 – West Brom (h)

The rotation that I mentioned in my previous article with a Manchester City player is just too good to turn down. 

It’s important not to overthink sometimes, and a fit Salah really should be in my squad.

In order to get to that point I probably have to do the unthinkable and sell one of Heung-Min Son (£9.5m) or Harry Kane (£11.0m).

I fully understand the form argument but I’m a fixtures man, and until Gameweek 16 I have no intention of captaining either of these players. That doesn’t necessarily mean they have to be sold, but I don’t have a better way of funding the moves I want to make and ultimately I’d rather own Salah than Kane…….for now.

Kane may have been explosive towards the start of the season but his highest score in the last four Gameweeks is 9 points. In fact in the last four Gameweeks he’s only had 9 shots in the box.

Twelve players have a higher non-penalty xG than Kane in the last four. In the first five Gameweeks he was third, only behind Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.8m) and Sadio Mané (£12.1m).

Kane is still being fairly consistent, but the explosiveness seems to be on a downward trend and it’s that which makes me feel I can get away with it for a few Gameweeks.

FPL Gameweek 2 team news and injury updates so far

Choosing a cheap striker to fund the Salah move is difficult. There’s still so many options to choose from, but it’s Patrick Bamford (£6.1m) that I’m considering.

I’m consistently impressed with the number of chances Leeds United create for him. In fact they’ve created a total of 98 chances so far this season which is equal with Aston Villa and just nine behind Liverpool at the top. 

From those 98 chances, Bamford has already had 31 shots in the box over the entire season. No other player has had as many with Salah (26) and Kane (25) in second and third respectively.

Even if we filter out the opening Gameweeks where there were a lot of goals, and perhaps teams were getting adjusted to a new and slightly different kind of season it’s still promising for Bamford.

In the last four Gameweeks he’s had 18 shots in the box, five more than Trézéguet (£5.3m) in second. No player has a higher expected goal involvement either and he’s been involved in 80% of Leeds goals.

Ollie Watkins (£6.1m) is another option to go for as well, and he has penalties in his locker which is a big plus. However from open play there is really no competition between the two. Watkins still has a chance of making the team however as I think it’s probably time I moved on from Neal Maupay (£6.4m) who’s been stinking up my team with no returns since my Gameweek 5 Wildcard.

The only question left is who does Salah come in for. It’s between Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) and Son which will leave me with money in the bank to upgrade the other one in a few Gameweeks to Mané or Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) down the line.

I think most people would side with selling Rashford. He looked tired and rusty against West Brom, squandering a great chance from Fernandes.

However when you compare the two over the last four Gameweeks it’s quite close. Both players have only had four shots in the box, but Rashford has created six chances to Son’s two.

I also prefer Manchester United’s fixtures with Southampton (a) and West Ham (a) versus Tottenham Hotspur against Chelsea (a) and Arsenal (h).

A lot has been made about Spurs being better against stronger teams because they can play on the counter but I don’t expect either Chelsea nor Arsenal to attack them like Manchester City did. I think both games could be close.

If it was for the long term I’d probably hold Son, but if I go through with the Mané or Sterling double up then I only need them for two Gameweeks at most so Rashford might get the nod as a bit of a differential with slightly better fixtures in my book.

    Should i get anyone for a hit?

    Martinez
    Сhilwell, Mitchell, Cresswell
    Grealish, Son, Bruno, Jota
    Vardy, DCL, Bamford

    Forster, Bowen, Lamptey, Dunne
    0FT, 5.3 ITB

    A - Mitchell -> Van Anholt
    B - Mitchell -> Kilman
    C - Bowen -> KdB
    D - Son -> KdB and subsequently will need to find funds to get Salah

    1. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      What move did you make already? You won't have 3 def this week most likely.

      1. afsr
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Did a knee-jerk Podence to Jota

        1. Whiskerz
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          I'd be tempted to move Mitchell, but not to either of the options you have listed. Maybe Clyne if you fancy a Palace clean sheet this week.

          Youll need to make sure you hit a clean sheet to make it worth the -4

    2. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Dunne to Cancelo rather than Mitchell -> Van Anholt

    3. Detweiler
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Bowen to KDB looks a solid move.

  2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 4 Years

    8 of my 11 this GW are playing against each other! 4 of which are attack vs defense.

    1. SmasherLagru
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 29 days ago

      7

    2. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I have 0. We must have very different teams.

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Absolutely!

  3. iL PiStOlErO

    Keeping an eye on Salah and keeping faith for at least this gw in Sterling but other then that do you see something else or save ft?

    Mendy (Steer)
    Cancelo Justin KWP (Taylor Mitchell)
    Bruno Sterling Son Grealish (Romeu)
    Kane DCL Watkins

    0.2 itb, 1ft

    1. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Similar attacking force to mine, and I'm afraid that I'm missing out on the two obvious captain choices this GW. So either Kane -> Vardy(c), or Salah back in for a hit.

  4. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Bottomed last page...

    Grealish + Ziyech -> Salah (c) + Soucek (-4)

    Too crazy or could work out?

    1. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      No, take out fit good players only ends in tears. You probably just got Ziyech in, show some faith 🙂

    2. Bobby_Baggio

      no mate

  5. Karan14

    Get Salah (bha) or KDB (BUR) in this week?

    If I get Salah this week will get KDB for Bruno next week.

    If I get KDB this week will get Salah in GW12 for Bruno or will sell my premium striker and shift to a 352.

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      KDB

    2. Bobby_Baggio
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Salah

    3. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Hard to tell.. maybe KDB

    4. Mighty Wings
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I'm in a similar position and have absolutely no clue.

      Hope this helps...

    5. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 4 Years

      Plan B imo

    6. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I would rather have Salah away at Brighton as think Burnley defence has tightened up and City not yet firing on all cylinders- see how Salah plays/how much gametime he has tonight

      1. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        how burnley set up is perfect for city

  6. The Alli Way
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Martinez
    Robertson Zouma Lamptey (Dunne (Mitchell))
    Bruno Son Ziyech Bowen (Bissouma)
    Kane DCL Watkins

    A) Dunne > Cancelo or Dias
    B) Watkins > Vardy and Lamptey > 4.5 (-4)
    C) Son > KDB (C) Dunne > Cancelo or Dias (-4)

    Gut is saying play it safe and just go Dunne > Cancelo and pray for KDB / Vardy blanks!

  7. Bobby_Baggio
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Draft League question please. Would you remove these two and swap for any of the below:

    Out: Azpi
    In: Rudiger/Aurier/Telles/Vestergaard/PVA

    Out: Trossard
    In: Armstrong/Doucoure/Fornals/Walcott

    1. SmasherLagru
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Pva or telles n fornals

      1. Whiskerz
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Tells and Fornals

      2. Bobby_Baggio
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        cheers not fancying walcott with his form?

      3. Bobby_Baggio
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Cheers - walcott not ahead of fornals with that form?

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      What a coincidence I also owned both in my draft league.

      I did Trossard to Fornals a couple of weeks ago. Also selling Azpi for James/Matip this week. In your case I would get Telles or PVA and Fornals/Walcott for Trossard.

      1. Bobby_Baggio
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        cheers - am thinking telles 100% and not sure over fornals or Walcott

  8. Mane Mane Mane
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 29 days ago

    My team is Martinez 4.0
    Dallas Justin Mitchell Cancelo Coufal
    Son Grealish Zaha Mane Bissouma
    Watkins DCL Vardy

    I’ve already brought in Vardy for Kane so have no free transfers now.

    Want to bring in KDB for son but now with the news of Zaha I see him as the priority.

    Jota for Zaha this week -4
    Then KDB for son next?
    Or should I do them both this gameweek for -8?

    1. SmasherLagru
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Dont -8

      1. Mane Mane Mane
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Just jota for Zaha then you reckon

        1. SmasherLagru
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Yeah kdb can probably wait if ur not gonna captain him

          1. SmasherLagru
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Or leave it n kdb next week 433

            1. Mane Mane Mane
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Tempted to do that to be honest just means I’ll have a defender like Dallas in rather than jota who could potentially score big

    2. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Zaha definitely out next gw then? Where did you hear the news?

      1. Mane Mane Mane
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 29 days ago

        I’m just assuming he will be out, might just wait on further news before making the decision but I doubt he will play especially being the Friday kick off

  9. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    PVA, keep or sell for City defender?

    1. Bobby_Baggio
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      City defender

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Been holding him since GW5 WC 🙁

        1. Bobby_Baggio
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          next 2 fixtures are good but going forward not a fan

          1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Yeah feel like I will punished if I sell him this week

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      If for free, sell

      1. SmasherLagru
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 29 days ago

        City

      2. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Yeah it's free, but very reluctant

    3. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Bit of a luxury move. If its your only ft then I'd save if it means burning a ft then make it assuming no other issues.

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Yeah only 1 FT left after doing Brewster to Vardy.

        Might resist the temptations after all

  10. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Semedo -> Cancelo/Dias for a -4?

    1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Nope

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Should pay off long term.

        Thought u was thinkin about city defs nabil

        1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Not for a hit, unless you're removing non starter like Mitchell or Saiss

    3. Detweiler
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Not for a -4.

    Anyone else own Nyland still? I’m planning to start him for the rest of the season lol, any defenders with terminated contracts I can also start?
    I have Ferguson but he could start one day so won’t risk that 😀

    Ferguson > which terminated defender or loaned out defender? 4mil to spend

    1. Inazuma X1

  12. waltzingmatildas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Ok, thinking of Bissouma and Kane - Jota and Vardy (-4). Obviously leaves me without City but could do Bruno to KDB if I need to 🙁
    Leaves me with 2mil in the bank.
    Would give me:

    McCarthy
    Chilwell James Ayling
    Mane Bruno Grealish Jota
    Vardy(c) DCL Bamford
    (Button Soucek Mitchell CTaylor)

    GTG?

            KDB with burnley, fulham and west brom in the next 4 look almost a must. Hard to see son keeping up with KDB during these weeks regardless of what has been so far or you reckon son will keep scoring well during the next 4 ?

      I'd wait a week to see how both perform (Burnley isn't even a brilliant fixture for City in current form) and if City look better do it for free

        sensible

  18. RED_ARMY
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Team is:
    Martinez/Steer
    Chilwell Saiss Ayling CTaylor Mitchell
    KDB Bruno Son Grealish Anguissa
    Werner DCL Bamford

    1.8 ITB, 1FT

    Which is the preferred move:
    a) Werner to Vardy, not sure i would C him
    b) Saiss to Dias/Cancelo
    c) both for -4

    1. Detweiler
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Werner to Vardy. Do the Saiss move next week.

        1 month, 29 days ago

        Saiss out means i get 0 points for him, with a hit i could get in a potential minimum of 6 points, so it would mean a net gain of 2 points. Don't see Burnley scoring

    this team good to go? Bench looking about right?

    McCarthy
    Coufal Dias Chilwell
    Sterling KDB Grealish Ziyech
    Vardy(c) Bamford DCL

    Forster Soucek Targett Lewis, 0.3 itb

    Looking to save next week then do Sterling and Soucek to 4.5mid and Salah week after for Fulham

    1. King Kohli

    2. Detweiler
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Yes looks good. Toss of the coin between Vardy and KDB for captain.

  20. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Best move here?

    A. Sterling > KDB
    B. Jrod > Jota
    C. Son + Jrod > KDB + Jota(-4)
    D. Save FT

    Martinez
    Chilwell Konsa Coufal
    Sterling Bruno Son Jrod
    Vardy(c) Dcl Bamford
    Steer Kilman Anguissa Mitchell

    1 FT 0.8 Itb

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Indeed but not sure if its worth a FT for this week

    Any Sheffield United fans - does Brewster start against WBA?

    Yes, I know his underlying stats are terrible, so I am shifting to Bamford. I need to decide whether to do it this week for a -4, or hold Brewster for the WBA game and then do the move next week.

    1. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Get Bamford this week.
      Hit can easily pay off this week itself.

    2. what\'s my name
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      strongly considering gettin Bam in my team

    3. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Not worth a hit imo.

  22. Tony Martial
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Saiss and Bowen ➡️ Foden (.1 off Jota) and Robbo -4 good moves?

    Foden for 2 weeks which imo he has to start the next 2.

    1. what\'s my name
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      frankly not

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nah Saiss to cancelo/cresswell/zouma.

    3. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years

    My planned transfers were Podence and Jiminez to KDB and Bamford for free. NOTHING will get in my way of selling those 2.

    Question would be, with only 2 playing defenders this week (assuming Mitchell doesn't start against Toon on Fri), worth doing Saiss out for a hit? I'm guessing a few may be in the same boat this week given Lamptey's suspension.

    I would only go down in price (4.4-4.6) so benefits are:

    Free up around half a mil for a rainy day
    Extra squad player to cover for Xmas rotation/covid as Saiss is cooked
    Likely I only have 10 players this week, so only really a -2, assuming they don't concede 2 and/or get booked.

    In my mind, only Mitchell somehow getting his place back and hauling can scupper this plan.

    Who are the decent options around that price? Coufal looked fairly good at the weekend, but is there a hidden gem I'm not seeing?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      I would do it and mentally think you have taken a hit for KdB 🙂

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Feels bad when you take a hit for your captain and he blanks tho!

    2. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years

      Stuart Dallas. Where did he play on Sunday? Looked lively.

  26. Wiolini
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Seems like the fpl community is overwhelmingly embracing KDB over Sterling. What are the key arguments for this, e.g. rotation risk, stats, form etc.? Thanks

    1. raoulduke71
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I have both for next two fixtures, then probably Sterling to Salah

    2. The Units

      Penalties does it for me.
