Jota continues relentless form as Klopp manages Salah’s minutes

BRIGHTON 1-1 LIVERPOOL

  • Goals: Pascal Groß (£5.8m) | Diogo Jota (£6.8m)
  • Assists: Danny Welbeck (£5.5m) | Mohamed Salah (£12.2m)
  • Bonus points: Gross x3, Jota x2, Lewis Dunk x1 (£4.8m)

JOT THAT DOWN

A Pascal Groß (£5.8m) stoppage-time penalty denied Liverpool a victory and left owners of Andrew Robertson (£7.2m) rueing the late VAR decisions in Gameweek 10.

But Diogo Jota (£6.8m) continued his fantastic scoring record with a 60th minute goal – the ninth since his £40m summer move from Wolves. It came from Liverpool’s left-hand side, as Robertson setting up Mohamed Salah’s (£12.2m) one-touch pass to Jota, who managed to wriggle through the defence to hit a low right-footed shot into the corner.

Such success has seen Jota’s ownership rise to 22% and this strike certainly won’t slow down the race to grab the league’s most in-form player. Initially perceived as a back-up option, Jota is making himself undroppable and faces Fulham in Gameweek 12.

In a match of two penalties and two disallowed goals, both Salah and substitute Sadio Mané (£12.1m) were victims of the latter. The Egyptian star was ditched by 1.4 million FPL managers when his positive coronavirus (COVID-19) tests ruled him out of last Sunday’s 3-0 win over Leicester. 

Owners who risked that Salah would only miss one match were delighted to see him play in midweek and again here, hoping to add to his record of five goals and three assists against Brighton.

“I can explain it one last time: in this period we are now in, five subs is not for tactical changes. And if ever one coach has the luck to use it for tactical changes that would be the exception. If we would have had five subs today then Andy Robertson I would have taken off, 100 per cent; I had Kostas Tsimikas on the bench, so he can play 15/20 minutes.” – Jurgen Klopp

A couple of early opportunities did arrive for Salah. Firstly, Jota was released down the flank in the opening minute and almost provided a tap-in for his team mate, were it not for a defender getting there first. Two minutes later, Fabinho’s (£5.4m) long pass put Salah through on goal but his left-footed shot went wide.

However, when he converted a similar one-on-one, VAR ruled he was offside and that his calm finish past Mat Ryan (£4.5m) would not count. That was it for Salah, as the assist for Jota put him on six points – substituted off for Mané with a clean sheet point secured.

Salah was furious at being replaced but Mané, rested as part of Jurgen Klopp’s decision to carefully manage an injury-ravaged squad, perhaps a sign of an explosive score on the horizon.

Jota’s hot streak has coincided with Mané’s relative drought, scoring just once from his previous eight games in all competitions. He headed home a Robertson free kick in the 84th minute but VAR again deemed it offside.

ROBBO ROBBED?

It looked set to be a comfortable Liverpool victory, as the champions improved since the half-time introduction of captain Jordan Henderson (£5.4m). With a vocal leader on the pitch, they were able to nullify the threat of Brighton better than they had done previously.

Yet a late attack led to Robertson kicking the boot of Danny Welbeck (£5.5m) and the awarding of the Seagulls’ second penalty – this time successfully converted by Gross.

“Football is played by human beings, there’s going to be some mistakes and errors, including from the officials. We will be on the wrong end of them sometimes, but we will also be on the right end of them. We’ve got to accept that VAR is here and try and support it as best we can and not get too carried away with decisions because they’re nothing we can control.” – Graham Potter

This equaliser prevented the patched-up Liverpool defence from keeping their sixth clean sheet in the nine games since Virgil van Dijk’s (£6.3m) ACL injury against Everton. After hosting Wolves in Gameweek 11, encouraging fixtures against Fulham (away), Crystal Palace (away), West Brom (home) and Newcastle (away) will tempt many to return to Klopp’s back line, especially once Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m) returns from his calf injury.

NEAL’D IT

Brighton’s upcoming games are mixed – Southampton (home), Leicester (away), Fulham (away), Sheffield United (home) and West Ham (away). Those with Neal Maupay (£6.3m) might be wondering if he’ll ever score again. Without a goal since his spree between Gameweeks 2 and 4, disciplinary problems saw him dropped for the recent visit to Tottenham and the former Brentford man missed Brighton’s first penalty of the day.

His spot kick was given in the 19th minute, in a period where Aaron Connolly (£5.3m) was a constant menace to Liverpool’s inexperienced defence. Shortly before, he was put through on goal by Maupay’s defence-splitting pass but put his shot off-target. Then Connolly was fouled by Neco Williams (£3.9m), before Maupay put the eventual penalty wide. The Frenchman compounded his misery by limping off with a hamstring problem minutes later.

Injuries are everywhere right now, with Liverpool’s known troubles almost worsened when versatile James Milner (£5.3m) was in pain. Against his former club, substitute Adam Lallana (£6.2m) only lasted eight minutes for Brighton before he himself was replaced due to injury.

Head coach Graham Potter will be pleased with a point, especially as it was gained without suspended right-back Tariq Lamptey (£4.8m). His sending off against Aston Villa deprived the Seagulls of a huge attacking threat – second to Robertson in penalty box touches of defenders.

He is part of a Brighton defence that only has two clean sheets, despite heading into Gameweek 10 with fewer shots conceded than everyone else bar Man City, who have played one fewer match. Between them, goalkeepers Ryan and Robert Sanchez (£4.4m) had only made 13 saves, with Ryan adding one more here.

So their solid defence isn’t letting many shots through, yet those that do are often goals. Owners of Lamptey will hope that this peculiar rate sorts itself out over their upcoming fixtures, enabling him to bring in returns at both ends of the field.

BRIGHTON XI (3-5-2): Ryan; Dunk, Webster, White; Veltman, Gross, Bissouma, March, Connolly (Lallana 63’ (Jahanbakhsh 71’)); Maupay (Trossard 26’), Welbeck

LIVERPOOL XI (4-2-3-1): Alisson; N Williams (Henderson 46’), Fabinho, Phillips, Robertson; Milner (Jones 74’), Wijnaldum; Minamino, Jota, Salah (Mane 64’); Firmino

      No other way that you can wait for? E.g Bruno

    8. Halftime Lemon

      3 months, 8 days ago

      Thanks. Don't like to transfer when drinking but pulled the trigger. KDB price rise tonight I think. Fixtures for both swing it

  2. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3 months, 8 days ago

    Hiya all - off to a pretty terrible start here. Assuming the rest of my lot tick over ok (returns for some hopefully, probably blank for Podence lol), and with only 1FT 2.6 ITB what would you target here? Not averse to some hits at this point...

    Martinez (Steer)
    Robbo Cancelo Lamptey (Coufal Mitchell)
    Bruno Son Ziyech JRodriguez Podence
    Kane DCL (Davis)

    Really hoping Cancelo plays - think I can leave the defence alone a week. But Hamez Podence on the chopping block, potentially also Kane to free funds. Bruno may become Salah again soon.

    Any help appreciated 🙂

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

      Need some masterclass from Bruno, Son & Kane tomorrow, to get me back to where I was at the start of the gameweek.

      Then it'll all be on Vardy (C) monday.

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

        Lol sorry, didn't mean as a reply.

        Podence as a starter is painful. Maybe just go Jota ?

    2. Ain't No Holebas Girl
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Tricky because I'm sure you're sick of the sight of Podence and Jrod & Podence > Jota & Grealish looks decent but still leaves you with no City. Does Kane & Podence > KDB & Wilson work?

      1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        It works tremendously, and was exactly what I’m considering for a -4 haha! Cheers.

    3. Old Gregg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      the answer on the previous page was decent. Depending on todays fixture. Alternative move, but could be chasing points Jrod > Mahrez. Is there CL fixtures this week...i have no idea. I think you are short of podence > Mahrez

      1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers yep, just seen those. Mahrez doesn’t really interest me much I won’t lie, just with Foden BSilva Torres Sterling and him all vying for spots.

        Certainly rn barring injuries (eg if Son/Bruno get crocked providing an easy route) I am thinking of the above Kane Podence to KDB Wilson - even tempted by Hamez to Jota as well. Leaves a decent 1.5 ITB too

    4. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Do you want KDB? If so downgrading Kane maybe the only way. If not then Mahrez or Torres punt for JRod or Podence may work?

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

      Kane to Wilson and Podence to KDB for next week perhaps

      1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers bro, those were the initial moves I’m considering actually!

        Also tempted to bring Jota in for Hamez though that’s another hit

  3. jernej93
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Salah -> KDB ?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      And GW12 switching back?

      1. jernej93
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Yes, or maybe Bruno to Salah in GW12 🙂

        Or Kane downgrade at Ziyech to Salah 🙂

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Well if you want to get rid of Bruno for Salah GW12 why not Bruno > KDB now?

          1. jernej93
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            I am not sure about it yet 🙂 I might also downgrade Kane and keep all 3 in midfield

    2. Old Gregg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      this. Any moves I do all focus on can i afford salah

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

    Son + Semedo to KDB + James for -4 (have chilwell)
    1. Yes
    2. No

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      1

  5. Gabbiadini
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Can you go without Jota?
    6.8 at his current output is just so hard to ignore but I don't have a midfielder that I am wanting to trade.

    1. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I am 96% sure he doesn't start against wolves

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

        vs his former team??

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Um why does that matter?

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

            psychology maybe... you seem to always here about players scoring for the ex club. It's kinda inevitable.

            1. Zim0
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Hmm maybe maybe. I really need him to not start though so im gonna keep saying he doesn't 😆

              1. Twisted Saltergater

                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 8 days ago

                  Hahaha yess hopefully klopp hears this and is convinced to not start him too 😆

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

        Where does that 96% come from, so precise 😆

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          A magician never reveals his secrets? 😛

              You haven't seen people jinxing some players here before?!? 😉

                • 2 Years

                I am a bit slow 😉

        2. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Actually this was before the milner injury. Now im only 69% sure

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        More like 96% he does start 🙂

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

        I think it's more likely he doesn't than does. But just a guess.

    2. Old Gregg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      might be able to v wolves. double up wit salah v fulham could be tasty

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I couldn't.

  6. Twisted Saltergater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Oooh. Exact funds for this:

    Bruno > KdB
    Richarlison > Brewster
    Bissouma > Jota

    would you for -4? Can't afford Torres over Jota.

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

      have pulled the trigger...

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

        feels good... which is usually a good sign 🙂

  7. Lindelol
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    To get KDB lose
    1. Bruno
    2. SOn

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

      probably Son

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

      neither.

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      So difficult, I’d probably air on the side who you have least value tied up in, so it’s easier to buy back if you want to

      1. Lindelol
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Good idea its bruno then

    4. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      GW12 Manchester derby if Son>KDB are you ok playing Bruno v KDB? Or maybe one of them to Salah? If so, Son > KDB it is

  8. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    City back to 1-0 wins from next week would be typical

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Because of Mendy is benched?

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

    Any suggestions how to fit Salah in this squad? 1ft, 1m itb.

    Martinez
    Robbo zouma lamptey
    Kdb Bruno son grealish soucek
    Vardy dcl

    Forster Dallas kilman brewster

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

      Grealish to Salah and Vardy to Wilson?

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

        Not sure I want to lose Vardy and grealish tbh. Maybe Bruno out?

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

      what's the pull of salah over jota?

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

        More nailed and pens

  10. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    I think Hamez(CHE) makes way for Jota(ful) for me after next week. That’s a nice fixture swing too - hopefully Jota doesn’t rise loads before then.

    Barring injuries/COVID to players like Bruno/Son, looking like I’ll do Kane to Wilson and Podence to KDB (-4) next week - decent plan? Still leaves Salah out, but can maybe squeeze in for Bruno somehow if needbe

    While it’d be nice to punt on players like Mahrez / Torres just now, I prefer nailedness (or close to, like Jota atm)

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

      think the timing is now, mate. Jota with Wolves and Fulham, and I suspect it'll be Mane and Salah in the CL midweek. Maybe Firmino is rotated next gameweek? who knows

      1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        True - but not sure Jota v Wolves is worth a hit to remove Hamez v Burnley is all.

        1. Ain't No Holebas Girl
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I just have a feeling he won't start vs Wolves anyway, based on nothing in particular but I guess Fulham is the game you really want him for anyway.

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

        I'm not 100% sure.

        Jota 90 mins today. Must-win game vs. Ajax & being in-form, I'd expect him to possibly play in UCL.

        Homecoming at Wolves. May play, may be on the bench.

        Then again Salah & Mané got some rest today. Maybe that's in prep for UCL. Who knows.

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

          yeah difficult to call. I just think it's odd man management to not play a player vs his former club.

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

            Toss up. He knows the players & their weaknesses. The same is true for the reverse...

  11. Lindelol
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Pick one
    1. Dallas
    2. Lamptey
    3. Coufal

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

      Lamptey

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

      If you mean to play then Lamptey

  12. Twisted Saltergater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Which would you prefer?

    Bruno, Richarlison, Bissouma (benched) +4
    or
    KdB(c), Jota, Brewster (benched)

      The latter as long as you think Jota starts. I personally hope he gets a rest and then I can comfortably bring him in against Fulham 😆

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        even the prospect of Brewster 1st sub rather than Bissouma, feels good.

    Tbf Bruno could be sold to KDB next week... don’t expect the Hammers to be an easy fixture for United

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      that's the way I'm thinking. Especially after PSG midweek.

  14. Lindelol

    Should I press the button then?
    Semedo + Bruno to Dias + KDB
    YEs or No??

    Do we think Klopp reverts back to 4-3-3 when he gets trent and thiago back?

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

      I think with VVD and Gomez out, Klopp likes two deep lying midfielders so maybe the 4231 will be preferred. Either way, I don't think it guarantees Jota plays.

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Who else would play though. Jota will start every 4231 match

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

          Well Minamino played that role today, so there's options.

          I just think managers tend to not drop players in form. So while's he scoring and creating, Klopp will find a way to play him.

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Yeàh Jotas a real pain in my butt. I don't know who to get rid of for him.
            KDB Bruno Ziyech Grealish
            Vardy DCL Adams
            This is my frontline. I plan to do kdb to salah and ziyech to Son. And vardy to ings and adams to bamford over coming weeks. And getting rid of grealish or dcl doesn't make sense to me. And Bruno im keeping till he dies. So what do i do?

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

              you can't have them all unless you want to play a Soucek every week. I've decided to sacrifice Bruno. I don't feel great about it, but I don't trust Solskjaer to rest him in the CL.

              Just switched to a 352 so that gives me:

              Salah KDB Ziyech Grealish Jota
              Kane DCL

              1. Zim0
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 8 days ago

                I guess the only options are bamford or dcl for him if i want him. I don't want to get rid of any of the other players

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

            Klopp has been complaining about the schedule, so I expect their minutes to be managed. Salah, Mane, Jota and Firmino will get the most minutes, but Minamino will play also.

    I bet Hodgson is desperate to have him for next GW?

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      I'd be amazed if he's not back next weekend.

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

        Probably, but he needs to test negative first and be fit. Yes, young healthy athletes usually have easy covid, but I wouldn't be amazed if there were some issues. It's possible and has happened.

    2. Ain't No Holebas Girl
      • 3 Years

      They look absolutely toothless without him so even with minimal training I'd imagine he'll be straight back in

        3 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks mates.
        Forgot to take the hit this Gw, was thinking a lot who to buy for him. Torres, Jota, Barnes. Ultimately Zaha stayed, Bissouma gave me the 2pts. But now I hope Zaha starts. After this he is off.

    Still irritated on Sterling but I think I'll move Salah -> KDB this GW and hope City absolutely destroy Fulham and Raz starts. Then move Raz to Salah GW 12 and regret his existence. Don't like preplanning transfers but surely Fulham are worth it.

    1. Zim0
      • 2 Years

      And it is annoying not having him but i can't seem to fit him in. Do i get rid of adams/bamford for him? It would involve taking a hit to revert to 3-5-2

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Well obviously I'm speaking without context here but I'd say no, both are performing very well at their price - the goals should come for Bamford. Could fit him in another way or go without him but he looks such an appealing package at 6.7M...

      3. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Salah, KdB, Bruno, Jota, Son, Rashford, Ziyech... You can't have them all, but Jota is better than Mane atm.

    2. Ain't No Holebas Girl
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Certainly looks an integral part of the team at the moment, even considering going with him over Salah if it facilitates Bruno / KDB / Son / Kane

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

        When will everyone be fit? That looks like a long time away. More importantly, do you see Klopp leaving out the player with 8G 1A in the last 8 games? I could be wrong but I don't pinpoint him as that type of manager.

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

          I don't have any idea about the injuries but it's clear that Liverpool are not at their best with current formation

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

            They really needed that Jota goal. You really think they would have done better without it?!? Yes, they have a lot of injury issues, but Jota being in form is the biggest positive problem they have atm.

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

            Jota will be in the fist XI at present. At full availability I suspect we'd have him in a front four again.

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

        I remember time when people here were saying that TAA is not nailed. Klopp, like every good manager lets players who play well to play. Same with Son not being nailed long ago. Those days he started and had perhaps 60 mins before substitution for Moura etc.

        None of them is nailed to play 90 mins in every PL match any longer, not even Salah. And even though Firmino scored not so long ago, he
