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.

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.

    Jimmy to Abraham?

    1. Rasping Drive

      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Surely there are better options. Who are your other strikers?

      1. gunner79
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Bamford and Calvert

        1. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Would you consider going 3-5-2? If you downgrade Jiménez to a 4.5 striker, what could you do with the funds in midfield?

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yes, I am finding myself strangely drawn to Tammy too.

    3. Gromit
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Wilson, Antonio (if both are fit) are better options to me.

    4. Nunoooooooooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I'm looking at ways to get him in so sensible move imo. Think his place is relatively safe for now...

    5. Carefree Crew
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Tammy is competing with Werner & Giroud who Lamps has said will get minutes.
      Admittedly Werner has been played on the left with Pulisic out injured, but he's back at the weekend. Plus Giroud has just scored coming on in the CL.
      The time to get Tammy would have been a few weeks ago.
      I prefer my FPL players to be nailed & play 90 minutes & considering the above I don't think he fits into that category.
      Fixtures aren't amazing & spurs as an entry point isn't favourable IMHO.
      I hope I'm wrong as a Chelsea fan & "youthinista", I really like Tammy, but I think there's risk associated with having him.

  2. ADucksBehind
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    A) Sterling/KDB + Watkins
    B) Jota + Vardy

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A seems the "safer" pick

    2. Gromit
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A for me.

  3. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Am I missing out on too much upside if I just save FT here this GW? Honestly wondering if that’s the best way as I’m totally torn on whether any of the common premium switching moves will actually pay off or not!

    1FT 2.3itb
    Martinez
    Robbo, Chilwell, Cresswell
    Bruno, Ziyech, Son, Grealish
    Kane, DCL, Bamford
    (Forster) (KWP, Stephens, Branthwaite)

    A) Save FT (and hide behind a Salah/ Vardy/ KDB-shaped sofa)
    B) Kane > Vardy (FT)
    C) Kane, Son > Vardy, KDB (-4)
    D) Ziyech, Robbo > Salah, Cancelo (-4)
    E) Son, Branthwaite > KDB, Douglas (-4) - 0.1 short of the straight swap 🙁

    Cheers

          It's a mess bro. Everything !
          Hopefully you're doing well 🙂

          Re FPL, nothing changed. Same old. 1 green 1 red in tandem. Playing a draft game with other community mates, focus shifted their actually tbh. Started to lose interest in FPL recently. Too much workload takes toll on you i suppose. Maybe a good GW will change everything 😉

            2 months, 1 day ago

            Haha i hear you.

            I definitely have less interest in deep diving into FPL this year - just too much out of our control!

            Can’t blame losing interest on rubbish rank sorry mate

              • 2 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Where did i mention anything about rank in that response?
              Or you just wanted to mention that ?

    2. Rasping Drive

      B and captain Vardy

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Seems the most popular move by far... which makes me scared of it - not like Vardy lit up the world the last couple of weeks and hasn't hauled since GW3...

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          It's Fulham bro

          1. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Of course but getting Vardy just for 1 plum fixture isn't too appealing if I don't believe he'll properly haul in other fixtures..... hmmm

            1. Amey
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Go with your gut feeling.
              I'm on him because I'm not getting KDB/Raz yet. Maybe will land Aguero from Vardy with 1 FT at opportune moment 😉

              1. Don Kloppeone
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                You're on easy street this week having Vardy and Salah already!

                1. Amey
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  Looks great on paper. 22 points incoming 😉

        2. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          The way Fulham try to play it out from the back (oftentimes not to great effect) could play right into Vardy’s hands. It’s a risk losing Kane for sure, but I think Vardy could have a field day.

    3. RamaJama

        Definitely a more interesting move, right?! But feels like the move with the most chance of backfiring!

    4. Boly Would

      I have a similar predicament and am looking at B.

      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Hi Don
      Our teams aren't a million miles apart, but a Zaha shaped hole in mine means I can't do nothing.
      B or even C could be worth it though a hit to get both Spuds out feels wrong.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Hey mate. In a way I wish I had an issue like Zaha so I had a clear decision to be made!

        I have always tried to balance form and fixtures where possible so I would be v scared of ditching both Kane and Son I think.

        On the other hand.... apart from the fixture itself, I haven't seen overwhelming evidence that Vardy will haul this week. He hasn't hauled since GW3 and stats haven't been amazing last couple...

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Hmmm. E then? No interest in Sterling?
          Weirdly Douglas could be in a lot of teams soon so price might go up.

    6. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B or C both look good.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        That's the issue really ... they all look good but could equally backfire as they are all replacing decent premium players with decent premium players 😆

    3. Gromit

      No Liverpool could hurt you, but your team is G2G for a good points haul IMO anyway.

      Roll the FT.

      I wouldn’t

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…

      No, I'd rather do nothing or Foden to Jota

    3. Gromit
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I'd probably just leave as-is.

      Foden could haul with City's fixtures.

      Son could haul full-stop.

      Cresswell a good long-term pick.

    Best Midfielder from Leicester City for next 3 GWS ?

    1. Pratik

      surely barnes?

    2. Gromit
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      As a Leicester fan, I'd say Barnes the most likely for goals on the break with his pace.

      1. OptimusBlack
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        But why didn't play Full 90 minutes for long time

        1. Gromit
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Rotated a bit more now Maddison is back and Under around. Also Rogers changes things up about 60-70 mins in quite often, so he's likely to make way.

          I wouldn't personally go near Leicester mids for FPL, there are better cheaper options IMO. Wingbacks/Defenders and Vardy worth it though.

    2FT, 2.7m itb - Could do with a sounding-board. Plan is to bring in City attack when they start performing - will also monitor Salah

    Martínez
    Robbo Zouma Lamptey**
    Bruno Son Grealish Podence
    Werner DCL Jiménez

    Steer Klich Mitchell* Dunne*

    A. Jimi, Podence, Dunne -> Vardy, Bissouma, Cancelo worth -4?
    B. Jimi & Dunne -> Vardy & Kilman/Coufal/Lewis, etc. for 2FT

    Other suggestions welcome - Cheers

    Brighton are among the 4 teams who have conceded the most penalties this season-4. Liverpool have won 4 pens, same as Man Utd and Chelsea. Milner might be starting at right back so he might take any penalties we win though...

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

      He would take over mo ?

        He has been first pen taker in the past when they have both been on the pitch. We won a penalty a few weeks and Milner "let" Salah take it, but it looks like Milner was the designated penalty taker that game

            it was the game vs FC Midtjyland. Salah took the injury time pen with both players on the pitch.

        https://www.reddit.com/r/FantasyPL/comments/k08u25/who_takes_penalties_for_liverpool_when_both/

        Found this discussion.

        "Milner is our first choice penalty taker, this hasn't changed. It is correct that Salah took and scored a penalty vs Midtjylland this season while both were on the pitch BUT he pointed towards Milner after scoring, as Millie let him take it.. It was a low pressure penalty in the 90th minute where we were already winning. So it's highly likely Milner continues taking them, I see no reason why he shouldn't, his composure from the spot and record is almost impeccable."

    a) Harrison, Kane > Salah, Bamford (-4)
    b) Harrison, Kane > Salah, Tammy (-4)
    c) Harrison > Jota
    d) save FT and do it next GW

    Current front 8
    Harrison, Bruno, Son, Grealish, Ziyech
    DCL, Wilson, Kane

      If you are happy to do it for a hit, no harm in getting Mo in sooner rather than later. No City?

      1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Not feeling City at all.
        Not setting the world alight in any department, defense or attack.

        Will monitor but Son or Bruno could move to KDB

    Hi all! 10 days to next gw and no fixture dates announced. When do we think it will be updated?

  20. Corned Beef Kelly Osbourne

    2 months, 1 day ago

    Bring in Foden/Jota/Torres/someone for else for -4 Zaha or play 10 ? £0 in da bank..

    McCarthy

    Robbo - Chilwell - Balbuena (Lamptey* - Mitchell)

    Salah - Grealish - Barnes (Zaha* - Stephens*)

    DCL - Werner - Aguero

    1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
      • 6 Years

      Jota or Torres for me

  21. Inazuma X1

    Would be cool if FPL allowed us to sub in one player every GW, give us a little control after games are played

    You'll question that everyone will pick the highest points player, of course but picking those 3 subs will require skill

    1. DK_13
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Doesn't change anything much. Now instead of choosing 11 players a week, you choose 12. It's basically like your worst performing player will removed. Would just make players like jota and all essential(cheap players with insane upside)

  22. KUNingas

    2FTs and 0.3 ITB

    Martinez
    Chilwell, PvA, Coufal

      1. KUNingas

        Interesting, thanks! Would really want City players in

    Team:

    McCarthy
    Justin - Chilwell - Targett - Bernardo - Douglas
    Son - Bruno - Rashford - Podence - Bissuma
    Vardy - DCL - Adams

    Which move is better? 1FT & 5.0itb
    A) Bernardo —> Dias
    Or
    B) Podence —> Jota

    1. Gazza2000

    3. FDMS All Starz

      A, Brighton will attack, Burnley will sit back

    4. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Salah

    Thoughts on Ars v Wol - low scoring or could Wolves pull an Avl out of the bag?

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

      I don’t see that, 0-0 1-0 or 1-1 I recon

      I own Semado and with zaha likely a more pressing matter just going to hold him

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

        Yeah, didn't think so. Just looking at how/when to migrate my Wol attacking assets. Jimi -> Vardy is a given. Podence is low level - can play/bench. Cheers

    2. FDMS All Starz
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      1-0 either side

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

        I reckon that's about right

  26. LewanGOALski
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    This plan - YAY or NAY..?

    GW10: Zouma + Kane ➡ Cancelo + Vardy (-4)
    GW11: Hamez ➡ Salah

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      looks good

  27. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    With Milner still being on pens, Mane to Salah seems like a sideways move now?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Milner is no longer on pens

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        He is, he's their designated pen taker

        1. mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          We can only go off the last occasion, Salah took while milner was on the pitch. That said the game was won and it was home Vs FC mdjitylland

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            My response is based on this information

  28. It'd be Rudi not to...
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    1 FT, 4.3 ITB

    McCarthy
    Chilwell, Coufal, Targett, KWP, Mitchell
    Barnes, Son, Bruno, JRod, Soucek
    Adams, DCL, Kane

    Worth Kane, JRod -> Vardy (C), Salah (-4)?

    I'm aware that Barnes could be moved as well, but no way i'm taking out before FUL, and a Barnes/Vardy(C) double up could prove very nice this weekend. My WC is still intact also, but don't see a real need for it at the moment.

  29. IRBOX ⚽

    Early thoughts here lads? 1 FT 2.8 ITB

    a) Save
    b) Rashford > Sterling
    c) Rashford > Salah

    Martinez
    Cancelo Chilwell Justin
    KDB (C) Bruno Grealish Rashford
    DCL Richarlison Watkins

    Forster Bissouma Kilman Lamptey*

    1. FDMS All Starz
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Rashford may do well on the counter attack

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Hence a) save

    2. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      C

  30. WHYYYY
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    My def right now:

    Guaita
    robbo chilly ayling kilman lamptey

    have 0.1 ITB , 1 FT

    is it worth doing ayling --> to coufal/targett/lewis/some1 else?

    1. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Would save the FT
