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.

    Hit for Cancelo/Dias or play Kilman, would be selling Lamptey.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Could keep both.

      How many goals have Arsenal scored lately?

      1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        not many tbf

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          If Kilman keeps a CS, Cancelo/Dias have to score at least 10 points for it to pay off that week.

          Long-term plans do if course come into the equation, but that's the risk you're playing with.

            • 4 Years

            Agreed, i am thinking long term though, City have great run, much better playing them than one of lamptey and kilman each week.

    Tempted to do Bissouma to Jota, but it means I would have to bench Soucek.
    Do it?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I don't think I'd want to have to play Soucek every single week so upgrading him or Bissouma seems relatively sensible.

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Yeah, he is definitely a blind spot for me. I love watching him, and it feels like he could score every week. But he isn't.
        Cheers

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Question is, do you sell Bissouma and get annoyed at the occasional bench haul (for 0.4m extra)... or sell Soucek and be happy with the fact you'd have never even though of starting him?

          I guess the rest of your squad answers that question for you 🙂

          1. waltzingmatildas
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Hmm good point. I just feel that over Christmas a decent 8th attacker could be a good option. Having said that, Bissouma isn't terrible.

            1. Hazz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              No worries. Just playing devil's advocate. Christmas coming up is a big thing, especially if the 5 sub rules isn't around.

      I'd rather sell Soucek

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        You might be right. I think I have Soucek tinted glasses 🙁

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I like Soucek but I don't like spending unnecessary money on an 8th attacker. If you will always bench Soucek id rather have Bissouma

          1. theplayer
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            I just wildcarded last week and went with Soucek as my 8th attacker. Previously was Bissouma. Reason being there's more chance of injuries and obviously covid this year than any other so bench may be needed some weeks. I just think Soucek has better potential for points than Bissouma. And only 0.4 more.

        tempted by KDB/salah but son/bruno are in form so maybe hold one week atleast

      son to a city mid i guess

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        yeah want a city mid for fulham so could wait one week and not take the hit but next week there could be other moves I wanna do so thats why I'm tempted by son>KDB

        1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I'm not making the move for city mid this week but that fulham fixture is so tasty, west brom as well. Think Burnley may put up a bit of a fight.

          1. drughi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            agree on burnley, with city not looking their best and a cl game a few days before I can see burnley frustrate city a bit

              3 months, 8 days ago

              That's what I'm hoping for lol, so many good options this week for captain whereas in gameweek 11 the city fixture really stands out

    3. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years

      I'd hold and see how City get on - Salah also of course

                    It would have been less effort for you just to help the guy out. Or just move on if you don't want to engage with the question. Do you behave like this in real life or just on the internet?

        How about Fuchs, are they stuck with him as 3rd CB until Soyuncu's back? Looking for a cheap but safe route into Leicester's defence if its not already obvious.

          Fofana the cheap route in, I think he's undroppable although had a tough game v pool, as many players will,

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

          A long-term, cheap, safe route does not exist.

          Fofana at 5.0m is probably the closest you'll get.

    Thoughts on this Team, chaps? Requires -4 over the next couple of game-weeks:

    Martinez
    Chilwell, Cancelo, Zouma
    Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Son, Jota
    DCL, Bamford

    (Steer, Kilman, Brewster, Mitchell)

    Happy with the Jota 'gamble' as it facilitates a strong midfield and defence albeit with no Grealish, Ziyech and Kane (can't have them all!). Pretty decent 'attacking' Liverpool fixtures coming up too (bri, WOL, ful, TOT, cpl, WBA, new)

    A) Bellerin & Soucek > Foden & Williams
    B) Nothing

      Sorry A is Bellerin & Bissouma out, not Soucek

    Is matip a good option.. considering Liverpools fixtures and maybe they start keeping CS?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      No

  14. bigdip
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Any changes worth taking a hit for? (0.9mn ITB)
    Mccarthy (Steer)
    Chilwell Coady Mitchell (KWP, Lamptey)
    Bruno Son Grealish ASM (Bissouma)
    Kane Vardy (c) DCL

    1. RealSocialDads
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      KWP may come in if Mitchell doesn't play but not worth a hit imo. Rest of team looks good

    Team:

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

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

    1. RealSocialDads
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      5m is a lot to keep ITB. Can you get KDB in midfield?

      1. FDMS All Starz
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        0.5 off Podence to Kdb, I was thinking son/rash to Kdb then Bruno to Salah the week after with the money

  16. RealSocialDads
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Struggling on this one, both for free:

    A. Werner + Hames -> Vardy + Torres
    B. Kane -> Vardy

    1. Babit1967
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I don’t like A mate, Torres for James is a big downgrade and Werner looked really good at weekend

      Kane to Vardy probs looks like a decent move this week

  17. Taribo
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    a) Zaha -> Jota
    b) Zaha & Kane -> Jota & Vardy -4

    Martinez
    James Justin Coufal
    Salah Bruno Son Grealish Zaha*
    Kane DCL

    Steer, Brewster, Lamptey*, Mitchell
    1FT, 0 ITB

  18. Babit1967

    Gtg lads ?

    Mendy

  19. Hansel

    Hamez -> KDB worth -4 or wait til next week?

    1. Babit1967
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Wait

    2. mr messi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      I would wait

  20. mr messi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Do I need to wc?

    McCarthy
    Chilwell Coufal Justin KWP Mitchell
    Salah Grealish Ziyech Hamez Soucek
    Vardy DCL Kane

    Would like Bruno but would need to lose Kane or Salah.

    1. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      No, lose Kane

    2. Babit1967
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Team looks good mate, can’t have em all I guess, Kane will prob rack up as much points as Bruno anyway

    McCarthy
    Chillwell Cancelo Justin
    Jota Son Salah Ziyech Grealish
    Jimenez DCL
    Bench: Ryan Watkins Aurier Mitchell

    I
    What to do (I will captain Vardy) :
    A) Jimenez to Vardy and Watkins to Brewster for a - 4?
    B) Jimenez to Vardy and Salah to Fernandes for a - 4?
    C) Save FT and don't bring Vardy

    1. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      C

      1. youzef
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        I still think Vardy will score a lot of goals in that Fulham game.. It's too good of an opportunity not to be missed

    2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      If you are very keen I'd consider A but no way in Hell would I consider B

    Martinez Button
    James PvA Justin Coufal 3.8
    Salah KdB Ziyech Grealish Soucek
    Vardy DCL Watkins/Antonio/Bamford

    Wildcard team. Any suggestions?

    1. Puntillimon
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      - Go for Che Adams out of the 6m bracket strikers
      - get Justin out for Fofana if possible
      - go for mccarthy, cheaper and more save points usually
      - button for Forster

  23. Reeker
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Have 2 FT.

    Zaha + Kane -> Salah + Watkins
    Zaha + Kane -> Vardy + Ziyech
    Zaha + Semedo -> Jota + Cancelo

    1. brianutd-why always we? 20
      • 9 Years

      Semedo

  24. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Martinez
    Dallas Robbo Chilwell
    Bruno KDB Grealish Ziyech
    Kane Bamford DCL

    Subs: Button - Soucek - Mitchell - Lamptey (1FT 0.1itb)

    Best route into building my Salah return?*
    A. Robbo to Cancelo/Dias
    B. Ziyech to Jota
    C. Kane out (Vardy is a possibility but doesn't provide the funds)
    D. Other suggestion/Hold

    Any views on whether to get Mo this week (-4) or in 12 also appreciated! KDB captain provisionally.

    1. LSK
      • 2 Years

      Save and decide next week. Good midfield currently so might not need Salah. Give it another week to decide.

  25. TeddiPonza
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    1 FT, 2m in bank.

    Midfield: Grealish Son Sterling Bruno

    Which option?

    A. Sterling to Salah (captain Salah)
    B. Sterling to KdB (captain KdB)
    C. Keep (Captain Bruno)
    D. Son to Salah for a hit (captain Salah)

    Thanks

    1. TeddiPonza
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      C. is Keep Sterling and save transfer

    2. LSK
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      C depending on what happens tonight

    Would you:
    A. Sell Kane for Vardy or
    B. Take a hit and transfer Wilson & Rodriguez for Vardy and Romeu?

    Thanks for advice

    Not sure if you got this: Speaking after the game, Fernandes said: "Of course every player wants a hat-trick. But after the game in the Premier League I told Rashford that he could take the next one so I remembered that and also he's one of the top scorers in the Champions League so it's important for him to get the confidence. It doesn't matter who takes the penalty as long as the team scores.

    1. Rupert The Horse

    2. chrisw333
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Grealish. He'll want to bounce back after a poor showing against Brighton and will be properly rested with the game being on Monday.

    3. Reeker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      As an Everton fan a) for sure lol

      I can already see the type of goal he scores in my head

    4. james 101
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Coin toss mate.

      I could see both going ok.

    5. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Bamford. That Everton defense is really something.

      Can't see how you've got yourself in a position to bench Grealish though!

      1. james 101
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Bangkok got him

      2. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Salah, Rashford, Jota, Grealish, Son
        Kane, Bamford, DCL

    Martinez
