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

    Gotta give Cancelo & Sterling one more chance for FUL right?

    1. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Sterling definitely. Even if he plays full 90 in UCL id play him. Cancelo not very sure.

      1. Jinswick
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Best option here?

        A) Save FT and Sterling/DCL -> Salah/Wilson next week
        B) Cancelo -> 5.5

        McCarthy
        James, Cancelo, Targett
        KDB, Sterling, Son, Jota
        Vardy, DCL, Antonio

        Forster, Bellerin, Riedewald, Douglas
        Bank 0.0m, 1FT

        1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Just save! Cancelo will probably play and so will Sterling. No neee to get rid of them for not playing one match.

    2. Rolls-Royce
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Sterling captain worthy imo

  2. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    What to do here

    Areola
    PVA Lamptey KWP
    Salah KDB(C) Rashford Ziyech
    Richarlison Wilson Watkins

    Dallas

    FT already used. 2.5 ITB. Would you take a hit for ex for Rashford>Sterling??

    1. LSK
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Did you see Peps comments? No guarantee Sterling plays. Probably will, but he seemed to suggest that if attackers score they will carry on playing. Both wide players scored so...

      Anyway, I wouldn’t take a hit until Friday at the earliest

      1. ivantys
          3 months, 7 days ago

          He's talking nonsense. Mahrez never scored but kept playing. Foden always performed in midweek but never starts.

      2. FantasyHero
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        you need to wildcard

    2. bso
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Looking for a decent 4.5 (or less) defender. Have Zouma, Lamptey, Cresswell and Cooper. Is Fuchs a regular starter now?

      1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Targett, Coufal, Dallas, Alioski

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

        Targett has some really nice fixtures coming up.

    3. Rolls-Royce
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Who should make way for Salah?

      A. Bruno- at the heart of everything United does,
      B. Son- one of the player of the season, hugely underprice, in a Mou team who are looking like potential title contenders

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Give both of them GW11 then make a decision.

        My choice would probably still be B. Bruno is a talisman and on penalties.

        1. Rolls-Royce
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Third option is KdB, who I think will do great over the course of season but not explosive enough compared to Salah, Son, Bruno

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 7 days ago

            KDB was literally the highest points scorer in the game last season, how is he not explosive?

      2. LSK
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Maybe neither? Both are cheaper than Salah and doing just as well.

        1. Rolls-Royce
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          True. But Salah is Fpl king. Third option is KdB.

      3. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        A

      4. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I'm doing son, Salah should outscore son in GW11-12

        1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Should, not would 😉

    4. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Sterling started both PL matches against Fulham (Parker being manager for one) in 2018 so that's useful I suppose, though it seems like straws are being grasped here. Midweek against a fiery Porto side will be interesting.

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        It's the hope that kills 🙂

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 7 days ago

          You know it

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Means nothing, it’s a new season and his form is horrible

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 7 days ago

          The fact that you're saying this makes it even more likely he starts

    5. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Remember when people started buying Hendrick when he got that lucky haul at the start of the season loool

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        There'll always be one

        But no one can match Walcott

    6. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Mendy
      Chilwell | Reguilon | Targett
      Son | B.Fernandes | KDB | Ziyech | Grealish
      Vardy | DCL

      Forster | Dallas | Brewster | Mitchell

      Guys, do you see the ways to fit Salah in this team in a week ot two? 0ITB

      1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        It's got to be Bruno and Reguilon imo

        Downgrading Mendy would help if you are still priced out

        1. Lucky Z
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Yeah, but does it worth it? Bruno is also constant provider of points, same can be said more or less for all my front 7. That is why a bit messed.

          1. ivantys
              3 months, 7 days ago

              I think it boils down to whether there's any games you would captain bruno. It's either son or bruno for me.

        2. HODGE
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Have to make a choice which midfielder to go, which is a tough call and prob downgrade Vardy for the money needed.
          None of your mids are bad picks but if there are no injuries may be grealish or Ziyech have to make way

      2. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        So, DCL to Wilson and Bruno to Salah for GW12 looks like a no brainer, right?

        1. My heart goes Salalalalah
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          It does not

        2. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Nope, far from it

          1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            But it makes sense, right?

            1. Holmes
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              Maybe, maybe not. One of those 50-50 decisions for me.

              1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 7 days ago

                It's the transfer story of my season

        3. colby_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          This is very much a "brainer."

          Chilwell, Cancelo, Justin
          KDB, Bruno, Ziyech, Grealish, Jota
          Vardy, DCL

          Who would you captain here for gw11? My early thoughts are KDB..

          1. Puntillimon
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Yes, it’s Fulham. They are gonna get slaughtered by the puppet master Kevin

          Good morning! What to do with this team?

          a. Jiménez -> Ings (if confirmed fit of course)
          b.Robertson -> Mendy (is he nailed at all?)

              3 months, 7 days ago

              No, Mendy is just better for providing width. Pep likes having left footers at LB for that reason.

              1. Pukki Blinders
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 7 days ago

                Could’ve told me that before I signed up Cancelo!

                1. Flair
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  I told plenty of people that mate. Always got the "Mendy looks terrible" and "he has no brains" bullcrap. I was firmly on Dias, leaned toward Cancelo over IB but the moment I saw Mendy starting and starring against Olympiacos I was back on Dias.

                  That being said, with Stones performing well Dias could be benched like Laporte was. Lots of fixtures and CB rotation could be occurring over the next month.

            Every single predicted lineup on Bluemoon has Cancelo RB and Zinc LB for Porto midweek

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year

              If he starts I’m selling then

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              3 months, 7 days ago

              Makes sense for Mendy to start against Fulham when he's needed offensively. Cancelo will probably come back in against United at LB which owners won't find ideal!

              Walker owners are the real winners.

          Considering Rashford > KDB and require 1.8m for the transfer. Which move would you feel the best enabler please?

          A) Kane > Wilson or Ings (if return)
          B) Grealish > Klich / Harrison
          C) Chilwell > permanent bench like 3.8 Defender

          Martinez / Steer
          Chiwell - Cancelo - Lampty - Kilman - Mitchell
          Salah - Jota - Bruno - Rashford - Grealish
          Kane - DCL - Brewster

            • 5 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            A) I think. Is it for a -4 hit or for free?

          2. El Fenomeno R9
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            All 3 season keepers and you cant go to 3.8 with that defense.

            Bruno > KDB maybe best option with Cancelo downgrade

            1. El Fenomeno R9
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              or Bruno + Rash > KDB + ? and beef up defense

          So Burke started for Sheffield Utd yesterday and got 2 points on my bench - typical, I needed those bench point last week 🙂

              I think Mendy, Walker and Cancelo are in a three-way rotation that cuts across competitions until the fixtures get less congested or one gets injured:

              Each one starts twice and is then benched once. This way, there's always two full-backs: Cancelo Walker vs Spurs, Mendy Cancelo vs Olympiacos, Mendy Walker vs Burnley, Cancelo Walker vs Porto, Mendy Cancelo vs Fulham, etc. This has been Pep's three-way roulette (without favourites) since I started playing FPL. It changes when favourites emerge or when injuries happen, or when he tosses someone else in to be less predictable (Zinch at LB, Bilva on the wings). Zinch tossed in here and there would muddle things up a bit, though. My guess is that Zinch will be subbed on when games are won (like Garcia), not start

              On the other hand, there seems to be a yo-yo rotation on the wings at the moment with all four preferred wingers (sorry Bilva) being fit: Mahrez Torres vs Spurs, Sterling Foden vs Olympiacos, Mahrez Torres vs Burnley, SF vs Porto, MT vs Fulham. Again, the usual caveats: emerging favourites, Bilva tossed in here and there, fitness

              This started after the international break, with everybody fit. Small sample size so far, and I still have no clue what's happening with Laporte, so I can't guarantee anything here. Just my observation, please

                Does that mean you see Sterling benched for Fulham's (3 consecutive league games he won start)? Tbh i can't see that happening but with Pep anything could happen.

              Picking Cancelo over Dias was a stupid greedy move on my behalf and it kind of scuppers my move for KDB since I run the risk of not being able to field 3 defenders, with Cancelo now a clear rotation risk.

              Steering clear of City defenders is perhaps the sensible move unless it’s Walker whom I can’t afford. How nailed is Dias, anyway, when Laporte (seemingly nailed) gets rested against BUR?

              1. Ze_Austin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 7 days ago

                Laporte's (and possibly Dias's) problem might be Stones. Pep namechecked Stones for not making a mistake so far. Stones plays at RCB, leaving only LCB for Laporte or Dias. Could be the start of a three-way rotation. Hopefully not... But even at that, nobody gets benched twice in a row across all competitions in Pep's 3-way rotation except if they've done something wrong or there's a fitness issue. Not sure what Laporte's done wrong and Pep didn't mention an injury, so it's all up in the air for me at the moment

                1. Rasping Drive
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                  Yup. Might risk Cancelo not starting so I can get KDB in for Son. Son might have something to say about that, however, if he performs in the derby today. Then look to move Cancelo on for a more nailed circa 5.5 defender.

              Tempted to WC here- What do we reckon?
              Prob players- Cancelo, Justin ( soon dropped), Ayling (prefer Dallas).
              Son/Fernandes blocking Salah/KDB. Jimenez and possibly Kane too.
              Thinking 352 or sticking to 343 with cheap strikers.

              A -4 or 8 will fix some issues for sure but others remain

              McCarthy.
              Cancelo, Chilwell, Justin.
              Bruno, Grealish, Jota, Son.
              DCL, Kane, Jimenez.
              Button, Ayling, Mitchell, Bissouma.

                  Yes, that's a thought as well.

                  I have enough to do Son to Kevin with my free transfer. Would it be worthwhile doing James to Jota as well next GW though? Might be more worthwhile waiting till after the Wolves GW? Considering Everton are playing Burnley next week as well.

              "It's not about rotation now. The players who don't make mistakes - like John Stones in defence - deserve to play more games. The goals today helps us, of course - especially for Riyad Mahrez. Gabriel Jesus has to score goals. [Raheem] Sterling when he plays has to score. They have to score more goals. That is why they are here. It depends on the player, their performance on the pitch."

                I think Martinez can be rotated. There a few GKs that started at 4.5... maybe that boat has sailed?
                That early penalty save has made him look good. LIV, LEI made AVL look good, but they've shipped nine in their last three home games.
                (I still have him.)

                I wouldn't be too keen to own Kilman, Lewis, Mitchell. Kilman alone would be ok (soon).
                Up until this week and the following fixtures, I wouldn't have been too keen on Justin, but I kept him because if the fixture turn.
                I don't see why you're adding ALL these guys as your wildcard choices.
