Assessing Salah’s blank as Robertson moves top of the FPL defenders’ points table

Newcastle United 0-0 Liverpool

  • Goals: None
  • Assists: None
  • Bonus: Andrew Robertson (£7.3m), Federico Fernandez (£4.7m) x3, Karl Darlow (£5.0m) x1

The final fixture of an eight-match Gameweek that refused to stick to the script ended in suitably underwhelming fashion at St James Park on Wednesday.

Liverpool failed to score for the first time in the Premier League this season as poor finishing and a dogged defensive effort from Newcastle United left the Reds, and those Fantasy managers who backed their attacking assets, frustrated.

EGYPT ME OUT OF POINTS

A second successive blank for Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) capped off a below-par week for many Fantasy Premier League bosses, with the Egyptian backed with the armband by huge swathes of the FPL community for the clash with Newcastle.

Both he and Sadio Mane (£11.9m) never really got going on Tyneside but even taking into account their listless displays, this was one of those games when the margins between double-digit haul and a three-pointer were slim.

But for the merest brush on the fingertips of Karl Darlow‘s (£5.0m) gloves, Salah would have opened the scoring and potentially the floodgates in the 33rd minute.

His second wasted big chance arrived midway through the second half, the Egyptian failing to even hit the target with this effort, but Salah has historically had a profligate side to his game and occasional frustrating afternoons come with the territory.

Mane was also denied a tap-in by a goalmouth clearance from Fabian Schar (£4.9m), while Firmino spurned three very presentable headed opportunities and ought to have continued his good festive form.

INJURY LATEST

In terms of positive news, Liverpool appeared to emerge from their Gameweek 16 clash on Tyneside relatively unscathed.

An early injury to Andrew Robertson (£7.3m), in which the left-back needed treatment, seemingly amounted to nothing, with the Scot going on to last the full 90 minutes – the 16th time in a row he has done that in the Premier League in 2020/21.

Jurgen Klopp said after the game:

As far as I know, in the moment, nobody got injured tonight, which is a very important thing. So that means we probably can go with the same squad to Southampton.

The return of Thiago Alcantara (£5.7m) as a second-half substitute was a boost to the Reds but from a Fantasy perspective, the most pertinent injury news of the evening concerned Joel Matip (£5.5m).

Any notion that the Cameroon international could offer FPL managers a reliable, cut-price route into the Liverpool backline over the coming weeks and months were dashed yet again when the injury-prone stopper succumbed to yet another fitness issue in Gameweek 15.

Klopp said after full-time on Wednesday:

The normal stuff with these kind of injuries, around about three weeks.

That would put Matip on a collision course with Double Gameweek 19, so any punt on Nathaniel Phillips (£4.0m) and Rhys Williams (£4.0m) for the home fixtures against Manchester United and Burnley is a risky one at this stage.

Even if Matip was ruled out for that double-header, the fact that the two bargain-bin defenders continue to share game-time is off-putting; it was Williams who got the nod to deputise for Matip in Gameweeks 13 and 15, and Phillips at St James Park.

GREAT SCOT

On the subject of Liverpool’s backline, Robertson produced another fine performance from left-back en route to a tidy haul.

With much focus on Ben Chilwell (£6.1m) et al this season, the Scotland international has quietly gone about his business and this latest nine-point return moved him into first place in the FPL defenders’ points standings.

But for Roberto Firmino‘s (£9.3m) poor miss from Robertson’s 67th-minute corner, the in-form full-back would have been looking at another double-digit score.

One slight concern on the clean sheet front might be the absence of Matip, with neither Williams nor Phillips looking particularly solid.

This was the first match that Liverpool have kept a clean sheet in this season when either one of those budget assets has played and it took a last-ditch block from Fabinho (£5.4m) to stop Callum Wilson (£6.5m) from extending that drought, with the Newcastle striker having brushed off Phillips all too easily to carve out an early opening.

DARLOW V DUBRAVKA

Included in the Newcastle United squad for the first time this season was goalkeeper Martin Dubravka (£4.8m), who had been sidelined for four months with a heel problem.

The Slovak will have to be content with a place among the substitutes for now, however, with Darlow producing a well-timed masterclass between the posts and earning his manager’s backing after full-time:

Karl has waited patiently for his chance because of the form of Dubravka but he’s number one at the moment because of the performances that he’s putting in.

FIVE GO DEFENDING

A solid defensive showing from Newcastle at the Etihad on Boxing Day was followed up by an even better display against Liverpool, with centre-backs Schar and Federico Fernandez (£4.7m) particularly impressing.

Fernandez proved to be a bonus point magnet whenever the Magpies kept clean sheets last season and it so proved again on Wednesday, with the stopper collecting maximum bonus along with Robertson.

The problem with targeting Newcastle’s defence in FPL is Bruce’s determination to roll out a more attacking formation in the so-called ‘easier’ games – good news for the talismanic Wilson, who continues to thrive despite the limited service and who went close to scoring against Liverpool, but less so elsewhere.

The Magpies resemble a solid outfit in a backs-to-the-wall 5-4-1 but look less so in a 4-4-2/4-2-3-1, conceding goals against the likes of Burnley, Fulham, West Bromwich Albion and Brighton and Hove Albion – all at home – this season when playing without a third centre-half.

Jamaal Lascelles (£4.2m), incidentally, looks likely to miss Gameweek 17 on his long road back from a positive COVID-19 test, but he’s one for the watchlist at that ever-dwindling price.


Newcastle United XI: Darlow, Murphy (Almiron 67), Yedlin, Ritchie (Lewis 86), Clark, Fernandez, Schar, Hayden, M.Longstaff, Wilson, Joelinton.

Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Fabinho, Robertson, Jones (Wijnaldum 68), Henderson, Milner (Thiago 73), Salah (Shaqiri 90), Firmino, Mane.

    Thiago anyone? Worth a punt for the double

    1. Captain_Shirokov
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Nope

    2. Maddamotha
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Horrible pick

  2. aleksaa2

    Arteta on Bukayo Saka’s fitness…
    I hope he is available, we will see today if he is training or not. He has played a lot of minutes as well. I am confident he will be okay for the game.

    1. Davros
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      That made sense until the last sentence. Mixed messages or what?

      1. aleksaa2
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        That's the only thing he said about him. It's a word for word transcript from the press conference. Personally I think he will start because he is the best player on the team at the moment.

    What are people’s current thoughts on when Man C and Tott games get rescheduled? Any chance they drop into DGW19 as well?

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      There may well be some jiggery-pokery to fit it in either 18 or 19.it depends how much the PL want to run the risk of Spurs being overloaded with fixtures towards the end of the season, and what Amazon are happy with is probably is also a factor.

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        That's Spurs above. Man City will have a couple of CL weeks free even if they go all the way in the CL so are probably less urgent at the mo.

  4. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Starting to think Bruno is a better player than Salah this year and maybe perma cap Bruno. (or at least against non top 6)

    Thoughts?

    1. YoungPretender
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      They will both have their fair share of hauls in between now and the end of the season. Not a fan of "perma capping", just keep judging it week by week.

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Pretty obvious

    3. Davros
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Liverpool have really struggled to break down the weaker teams this season. But it takes a brave person to captain Salah only against stronger teams. He was very close to getting going last night

    4. Olson
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Bruno is better with a ball than Salah, twice-over. That much is obvious. He looks better at everything else too but we will learn more over time in the context of the PL

      If he carries United to a title then you are starting to talk about about something different altogether

  5. OLLY G
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Cresswell is in my starting lineup, do l also start:

    (A) Coufal
    (B) Dallas

    Thanks.

    1. jimmy.floyd
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Dallas

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      No CS for either so hoping for attacking potential B

    3. ChelseaGuy
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      A for me

    4. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      B

  6. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Would you do this with DGW19 in mind? Grealish Taylor > Robertson Raphinha (-4)

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Yes

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

        Thx

    2. Davros
      • 11 Years

      Yes

      1. Davros

        Assuming you are FH in Leeds blank

      1. Swanremainsthesame
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        When GW18 is over your team reverts to what it was GW17, you then have 1 FT to plan for GW19 ; yes?
        If so there is no reason to burn up points with bench transfers.

      2. KunDogan (B.D.)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        A

    • YoungPretender
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Playing FH in GW18;

      Grealish > Rashford (-4)? Will have to take a deduction either this GW or GW19 anyway.

      1. Herman Toothrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        I did that my I've last week and glad I did. Go for it

        1. Herman Toothrot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          *move

    • tom2224
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Taylor + Grealish > Dier + Rashford? (-4)

      1. ChelseaGuy
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        How long Taylor out for?

        1. tom2224
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Hamstring so probs 3 weeks min

          1. ChelseaGuy
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            Ah then the move makes sense

    • Captain_Shirokov
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Fernandes to Son a good move? Only have 6 players for GW18 atm

      1. tom2224
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Take the highest scoring player at the moment out of your team? Yeah probably not the best move...

      2. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Not this week atleast

      3. ChelseaGuy
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Bruno is a season keeper imo, unless you have funds tied in him, go for it

      4. Captain Scarlet
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        FH?

      5. Maddamotha
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Wouldnt transfer out the best player in the game

    • Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Hey guys, for this week & DG19 would you rather have:

      A) Raphinha + Mane
      B) Son + Rashford

      Thanks

      1. tom2224
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        B

      2. thehodge
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        B

    • HD7
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Im not capping Salah.
      Its between Kane Son and Bruno.
      Favourites are the Spurs assets.

      So Kane or Son as C?

      Thoughts, mates?

      1. ChelseaGuy
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Going with (K)ane

      2. thehodge
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        I’d probably go with Son

      3. el polako
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Should Leeds play their normal then Son is the best option he will.have acres of space to run into.

    • Dark Side Of The Loon!

      is that Salah and Bobby in a pissoir?

      Wilson-Bam

      Adams-konza-Burke
      1FT 2.9 ITB

      which move do you recommend. Thanks in advance.

      a) Konza > Coufal
      b) Grealish + Wilson > Raphina + Vardy (-4)
      c) Grealish > Raph
      d) Burke > Soucek/Raph
      e) any suggestions?

              i'll give it a couple of hours.

    • Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Have a feeling Leeds will win v/s Spurs

      I don't think Mou will know how to handle them

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Anything can happen in the premier league bro

      2. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Well even ole managed to work it out.
        Leeds take huge risks and good players like Kane and son can expos them.

      3. Herman Toothrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        I guess it comes down to which French keeper is better.

      4. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Their tactics will actually make it easy for Mourinho

      5. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Jose's record against Bielsa is played 4 won 4.

      6. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        3-1 spurs

      7. el polako
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Jose might not be everyone's cup of tea but he certainly have enough experience to handle Leeds.
        Guy won enough trophies around Europe and deserves respect.

        All he has to do is sit back and counter attack them, exactly what thay Spurs team are good at. Im terrified as a non Spurs owner

    • drughi

      Out of the loop last few days.

      Are the games involving Fulham and city are likely to be cancelled next GW?

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        City started training yesterday with 0 new positive tests. The game should go ahead.

        No idea about Fulham yet.

        2. thehodge
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          City back training so looks like that game will go ahead. General consensus of what I’ve seen is Fulham - Burnley cancelled

      2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Should be fine if no new positives. If they have too many isolating already who will still be isolating for the next match, I would have thought the matches would be off already.

        Will be a last minute decision either way.

      (Steer Brewster Kilman Mitchell)
      0.6m & 1 FT

      A) Kilman ➡️ Balbuena
      (FH in GW18 as I will have no Spurs or City attackers)

      B) Mane ➡️ Son
      (Salah to KDB in GW18. Field 7-8 players in BGW18 and then decide if I want FH in DGW19 or just get Salah back)

      Thoughts?

        Wud you be confident of city game going ahead in GW18?

          Yes

        I like B, in that it has much more upside, but a plan with so many moving parts not ideal.

          Yeah that what I don't like about it. Plus I'm not sure about FH in DGW19 as I'm more likely to just go with DGW players and that could backfire.

        FH team for GW 18:

        Darlow
        Cancelo Dias Fernandez

        I’m at a bit of a crossroads this week, as many others are I guess! With 2FT this is a realistic example of a non-FH BGW18 side I can muster. Would you be happy to go into the blank with this lot, and save FH for gw29? I’d have 2FT in DGW19.

          I'm planning on playing something not as good as that

          3 months, 14 days ago

          You’ll probably lose 20 points to free hitters, so depends if you think you can get more than that as a gain by playing it later

            • 6 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            I think I could, with the BB in 26 and FH in 29. It’s just the unpredictability isn’t it. In a way, I feel like taking each week as it comes and playing the chips ASAP.

            1. TheDragon
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 14 days ago

              It’s really huge variance currently

              Your potential GW18 team is for me right on the line in terms of whether to bench boost or not

              Couldn’t fault you either way

              1. TheDragon
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 14 days ago

                *Freehit not bench boost obviously

                Hmm yeah, I was was testing the water with this post, thanks for your input I appreciate it.

                I think I’ll use FH in 18 and maybe TC in 19. Moving for the likes of Robbo, Vardy or Rashford just feels better than Holding tbh lol.

        Looking at getting rid of KDB and Taylor this week and Robertson + Rashford looks like the best option. Have a feeling about Neto though instead.. also leaves funds to go DCL to Kane for a -8.

        May be a bit aggressive given the uncertainty surrounding games atm.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Robbo and rash

          1. thehodge
            • 11 Years

            Cheers mate!

      • TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Do we think Taylor will be back in time for GW19?

        1. thehodge
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Probably not, I’d get rid

          1. TheDragon
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            If I have to get rid then I might have to scrap bench boost in GW19

            1. thehodge
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 14 days ago

              I thought the same originally re BB but it’s just a case of reshuffling. I was dead set on BB19 but there’ll be plenty of GW going forward that present a good opportunity to use it.

          Dunno, selling for Holding myself.

        3. Lev Yashin
          • 8 Years

          Sticking him on my bench and hoping for the best.

          Who even knows if the DGW goes ahead?

      • Lev Yashin
        • 8 Years

        Grealish -> Belloli?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Raphinha? For DGW yes, but not now necessarily.

        0.5 1ft

        FH in 18

        Best def up to 5m to replace Taylor?

        Thinking Justin or bednarek

          Justin - Soton and Chelsea will both go at Leicester which suits the Foxes

          Yes that's correct.

        How’s this look?

        Salah/Bruno/Soucek/Saka
        Kane/Vardy/Bamford

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years

          Plenty good enough

      • Lev Yashin
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Tempted to do:

        Taylor, Grealish, DCL -> Holding, Neto, Kane (-8)

        Thoughts?

        Neto could also be Raphina or Soucek

        1. TheDragon
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          -8 is bold

        2. thehodge
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          I actually think that could pay off but it’s very aggressive given the current circumstances with possible postponements

        3. OptimusBlack
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Yes with Soucek for DGW

        4. Little Red Lacazette
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Not a -8 at this time.

        Was going to do below but priced out by 0.1 now
        GW17 - KDB to Mane
        GW19 - Kane and Cancelo to Vardy and TAA

        What to do now guys? Advice appreciated
