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

    Is Fernandes >> KDB the move?? Or something else??

    Thanks

    1. Nikolai Volkoff
      • 5 Years

      JamesR to Mahrez?

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

    I have a feeling of not bringing IN a City attacker. Feck the roulette !

    Need a © this upcoming GW. Grealish/Salah/Bruno/Vardy in the team. City will rotate like hell IMO. Have Cancelo and not willing to add more City.

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

      Werner and Kane #2 and #3 for captaincy IMO, Vardy could be a great pick too but let's watch the Fulham game.

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

        Should be Vardy at #3 now that I think about it

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

        Only KDB looks nailed and I'm never comfortable © him. Never !

        You're right. Timo is great option this upcoming GW. Not sure about Hurricane vs Stoke City 😉

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

          Your loss mate, he's not even playing deep now

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

            Hmm
            Will decide on weekend. Jota KDB 2 players I don't have and looking like everyone does 😀

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

      Bruno will do the job

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

        Aye
        Only GW11 looks tricky. After that can © anyone from Salah Bruno Vardy (if i keep him longer)

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

      I think I will get KDB at the expense of Son; FUL match with no de Bruyne giving me the willocks.

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

        I can do something like

        DCL Son >> Bamford KDB (-4)

        Both highly owned players with bad fixtures vs flavour of the week i Guess. Selling Son is a tough call then it looks trust me 🙂

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

          Yes, agreed. Decent moves. I’m 0.1 shy of the same.

    4. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Vardy your best option out of those.

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

        Thanks.
        Will have to see how he plays vs Fulham.
        If he's poor i can do Vardy Soucek >> Davis KDB (-4)

        Davis would be 8th attacker

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          He's scoring a brace bro!

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

            Amen 🙂

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

        Yeah, Sheff Utd are awful defensively. No O'Connell, no Henderson has screwed them over. Sheffield Wednesday fan Vardy destroyed them twice last season, imagine what he'll do now.

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Yes I remember he got a brace away at Sheffield last season!

    5. Party time
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Vardy

  3. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Best Cancelo replacement?
    A. James
    B. Bellerin

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

      Stay tight.
      Try and hold for next 2/3 gw's and then decide

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        If he starts mid week I’m not waiting, his bandwagon will be DOA

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

      A Cancello needs to go no point prolonging it

    3. Nikolai Volkoff
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      C. Keep Cancelo

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        If he plays mid week there’s zero point in keeping

  4. mitro

    Foden to Jota? (FT)

    Tired of pep roulette

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Does Jota roulette sound better to you?

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

        Jota is no where near the same rotation risk and currently is pretty much a nailed starter because of form

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 8 days ago

          He will be when his form dips. Plus add CL and fixture congestion in there

  5. burnhilla
      3 months, 8 days ago

      What's the situation with Leicester injuries and how it affects Justin? Do you reckon he'll start GW11?
      I'm considering dropping him this week, because of a weak bench (Coufal against MUN).

      Any early early ideas on how to get Salah back for GW12?

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

        Either drop Vardy or Bruno.

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Will have exact cash for Bruno to Salah next week which is an option.

          Also like Holmes suggestion below.

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

            The points are surely coming for Bamford

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

              Getting rid of Ziyech before Leeds isn't my cup of tea though

              1. Karan14
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 8 days ago

                Not getting rid before Leeds. These moves are after this gameweek.

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

        Vardy and Ziyech to Bamford and Salah

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I like this move honestly have been considering it. Bruno probably a better asset than Vardy long term.

      3. Nikolai Volkoff
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Get Jota instead?

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I like Jota in addition to Salah not instead of him.

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

        You not interested in Jota ?

        I'm holding horses because of Jota & KDB 2 I don't have and maybe too good.

        Re Salah, you'd have to let go a big hitter no option.

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I'm very interested in Jota but I want him in addition to Salah.
          Can do Bruno & Ziyech to Salah & Jota for free next week.

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years

        Let them play their 1 or 2 games.

    • Jolly Good
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Do we think Salah/mane/Jota/firming will rotate equally?

      If yes Jota is a great value player... and importantly Salah no longer a trustable captain ... could do what mane did this week...

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

        That wasn't rotation. That was rest (Mane)
        I won't bother for a second © Salah when i think he has a decent fixture

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

        I don't think they will rotate equally, Kopp will not bench his best scorer from last 3 seasons only to keep rotation in place.

          Raz to KDB seems the obvious
          move to make.

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

            Yep, thanks. Thought about Salah->KDB this week and Sterling -> Salah next GW to maximize the Fulham fixtures but not sure.

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

              Yes, that could work as well; but I would be much more comfortable betting on Salah to perform rather than Sterling at the moment, regardless of the opposition.

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

                Very fair considering Sterling's performances.

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year

        Not a fan of double Chelsea defence and Rod needs to go after next week

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

          Best defense in the league and decent chances for offensive returns even if the fixtures are tough.

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

            JRod to Grealish next GW probably.

      3. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Save or sideways move to KDB from Sterling.

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

          KDB will come in for sure, postponing the inevitable by keeping Raz who may not even start this weekend.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Was quite surprising to see him benched for two consecutive PL games and now he surely starts midweek which would make me a bit worried about capping him on the weekend.

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

        Raz must be pain in ass.
        Have to keep this GW mo matter what though.

        Looks a save to me. Or JR to Freakish considering you don't have Steer

          Only Kilman and Bruno today for me, most of people I'm chasing have Kane & Son or atleast one of them. London derby will be huge for rank swings.

            Well I have James and Ziyech and no Spurs, and lots have Chilwell and Mendy, so it won't be one way traffic with swings! Saw on FPL live that mpst people only used 4 players so far, so still a very active game week.

              I guess you're right.
              For me best scoreline will be 1-1 with obscure goal scorers.

                Funny way to watch games, isn't it. I found myself cheering once when Long scored for Saints, rather than Ings, tho I didn't own either of em. With no City defence, I was willing Burnley to score at the end of yesterday's game. Fat chance!

          Jota v his old club next week. Points to be proven I am sure. (C) ?

            It seems like the perfect fixture for Klopp to throw out a surprise & bench him.

            Nuno stunned & Jota new owners stunned as well 😆

              Happy with that though I must admit Torres tempts

                Really? You think Sterling stays on the bench forever?

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  3 months, 8 days ago

                  Not sure if it escaped your attention but there are two spots on the wing in a 4-2-3-1/4-3-3, so even if Sterling starts Torres can too.

                    Torres, Raz, Mahrez, Foden, Silva
                    All competing for 2 spots. Not a place I want to enter

                This.

                I don’t get why people arre concerned about Sterling’s rest, for me that now makes him a more secure option for Fulham

                  • 1 Year

                  This is what people have said about Foden for the last 5 weeks. Doesn’t guarantee anything

                    Don’t think you can compare Fidel and Sterling!

                    One is a young player we always new would be a squad player, the other is one of their most key players

              If they win vs Porto they top the group? I’d imagine lots of rotation for the Marseille game (more than normal!)

                • 1 Year

                He conceded 2 own goals that were chalked off thanks to VAR... pretty fortunate for him

              Still a bit frustrated from last night. Robertson/KDB(C)/Hamez/Pickford all really unlucky not to haul for me in a big way.

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

                Yes, it was tough viewing (Robbo and Salah for me). On the positive side, you can be happy that your players are in decent form and points from them should be imminent 🙂

                    Not sure if you watched the City game but KDB could have scored a lot more points based on his performance yesterday

                  Kdb is not unlucky. 10 point is good. Robertson is so close, both ends, I have to add Rich, how he came not in the goals for this game, Salah cap was so close to a super haul. Johnstone got more than Kdb so very happy for kast match

                  If you want Jota you’d need to go now. In a few weeks who knows what’ll happen with form and rotation etc.

                  Torres is a steer clear for me

                  I’ve got exact money to do Bruno to KDB.

                  Alternatively, I can roll free transfer and do Bruno to Salah by downgrading Bellerin to a 4.6m defender.

                  Are Everton reverting to type?
                  Is it time to dtch dcl and any other Everton assets you may Have? Because I have a feeling come the end of January Everton will be there standard mid table.

                    DCL > Bamford to save some cash is getting tempting..

                      I agree I'm thinking.this and feel Leeds will finish above Everton

                        Yep Everton’s balance looks all off without Digne & Coleman.

                        Wilson is also a good downgrade at the moment.

                  Might do - Salah > KDB(C) for City vs Fulham

                  Then KDB(C) > Salah (C) for Liverpool vs Fulham

                  Mad?

                    Scrap this.

                    DCL & Bruno > Bamford & KDB (C) -4

                      Looks good on paper but obviously risky selling Bruno & DCL. Might consider the same moves for Salah next week.

                    Did Salah to KDB (C) this week and nearly paid of big time. Planing on getting Salah back for Fulham aswell.

                  Best replacements for Mitchell and Robertson?

                    Chelsea defender and one of the good 4.5ish options

                      James or zouma is the question - got chilwell already - which 4.5 m one?

                        I prefer Janes seams to have pretty much cemented his spot and offers so much going forward and he's a little cheaper

                  Morning. Are we to expect Pope back between the posts for the game against Everton? Pretty much decides if i ditch DCL for Wilson. I have 2 FT, thinking DCL to Wilson, Zaha to Mahrez. Thoughts welcome. Thanks

                    Don’t Think Everon’s goal scoring is over, the 3 of Hamez, Richarlison and dcl are strong attacking assets, despite not making to score yesterday

                    Yeah pope will be back and the transfers look good. Magrez will get the odd pep benching but the upside is huge as seen this week

                    Haha you posted this as I was writing out my post below! I’m assuming Pope will be back mate

                  Tempted by dcl > Wilson

                  Villa have conceded 9 in their last 3 home games and after that Wilson has

                  West Brom
                  Leeds
                  Fulham

                  Which are all decent fixtures

                  Where as DCL has an OK fixture against burnley and then a horrible run of

                  Chelsea
                  Leicester
                  Arsenal

                    Interesting, might consider Wilson

                      Yea mate! My rank is the stuff of nightmares so nothing to lose and need to make a move somewhere that could give me some headway

                    A. I’ve got exact money to do Bruno to KDB.

                    B. Alternatively, I can roll free transfer and do Bruno to Salah by downgrading Bellerin to a 4.6m defender.

                    Thoughts guys?

                      Why would you want to get rid of Bruno?

                        Thanks, just wanted to check but I agree taking out Bruno makes no sense.
