Can FPL managers still rely on Liverpool assets for Double Gameweek 19?

SOUTHAMPTON 1-0 LIVERPOOL

  • Goals: Danny Ings (£8.3m)
  • Assists: James Ward-Prowse (£6.2m)
  • Bonus points: Ings x3, J Stephens x2, Bednarek x1

DOUBLE TROUBLE

Liverpool assets put in the worst possible audition for Double Gameweek 19 as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat to Southampton on Monday night.

During their last Premier League match before they host Manchester United and Burnley, the Reds struggled to offer much in the way of attacking quality, continuing a concerning trend ahead of the upcoming mini chip season.

Over the three matches that followed the 7-0 win at Crystal Palace, Liverpool have scored just one goal and taken two points from a possible nine. Such an achievement is all the more discouraging considering they faced West Bromwich Albion, Newcastle and Southampton.

For the first time since May 2018, Jurgen Klopp’s men have now failed to score in back-to-back league matches, having found the net in each of their 21 previous outings.

“What was disappointing (about the defeat)? How long have we got? We were not good enough. It’s our fault, my responsibility, that’s it.” – Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool can hardly protest at their misfortune either as they failed to register a shot on target until the 75th minute when Sadio Mané (£11.9m) finally found some space to shoot but tested Fraser Forster (£4.0m) only with a low, scuffed effort.

That was the longest the Reds have had to wait for an accurate effort in a Premier League match since December 2015, 89 minutes into a 2-0 defeat at Newcastle two months into Klopp’s Liverpool tenure.

“We were dominant in the right areas, had the moments but then the decision-making was not that good. The last pass, we missed the last pass. I heard now we only had one shot on target; we had a lot of shots next to the target which we did not finish, but even with them we probably did not have enough for the moments we had. Our fault, my responsibility and that’s it.” – Jurgen Klopp

ALWAYS CAPTAIN… WHO?

Fantasy managers considering Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) for the Double Gameweek 19 captaincy are almost certainly having second thoughts in the break between Gameweeks 17 and Blank Gameweek 18.

After scoring 16 points as a substitute against Crystal Palace, the Egyptian has now blanked in each of his last three Premier League appearances.

That is the longest he has gone without an attacking return in 2020/21 and, against Southampton, there was very little in the way of straws to clutch at.

Most of Liverpool’s play went down the left-hand side through Andrew Robertson (£7.4m) and Mané on Monday night, their crosses into the box well dealt with by Jack Stephens (£4.6m) and Jan Bednarek (£4.9m) before they could get through to Salah. As a result, Southampton now have more clean sheets in the last four matches (three) than any other side.

Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.8m) also impressed in his handling of Liverpool’s left-sided attackers and in one of the rare moments where Mané got the better of him, the cross was just too high for Salah to get over it, his effort going over the bar.

Meanwhile, the right-winger’s link-up with Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) was virtually non-existent as the Englishman had one of his worst games in a Liverpool shirt to date. He gave the ball away 38 times against Southampton, the most of any player in one match this season – and he only featured for 77 minutes before James Milner (£5.3m) replaced him.

So then… what now for Salah as a captain candidate in Double Gameweek 19? After all, Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) scored a double-digit haul operating as a false-nine at Chelsea and faces Crystal Palace and Aston Villa in that round.

Meanwhile, both of Bruno Fernandes‘ (£11.3m) Double Gameweek 19 matches are on the road, where he has produced 10 points per game this season.

And the other advantage they have over Salah is another chance to impress. It is clear that Liverpool have serious attacking problems right now but the only chance Fantasy managers will have to assess whether or not they have made progress in solving them is a third-round FA Cup tie against Aston Villa on Friday.

However, how much we will be able to read into that match remains to be seen. Considering the busy December schedule, which does not let up in January, Klopp and Dean Smith are almost certain to chop and change their teams.

As a result, potential Salah backers have only the last three matches to rely on for their captaincy decision – and they were not encouraging.

By contrast, De Bruyne and Fernandes both feature in Blank Gameweek 18 bringing their existing form into relatively appealing matches likely to allow for encouraging Double Gameweek 19 captaincy auditions.

“They are football problems; yes, we are worried about that but football problems you solve with football and that’s what we are working on. We know about the situation, we are not silly, and we have to show a reaction, 100 per cent.” – Jurgen Klopp

SITTING ON DEFENCE

Liverpool’s Monday-night defeat did not do wonders for their defensive assets ahead of Double Gameweek 19 either.

Once again, they were patched up in that department, Jordan Henderson (£5.4m) dropping into centre-back alongside Fabinho (£5.4m) in Joel Matip‘s (£5.4m) continued absence.

However, a lapse in concentration during an early James Ward-Prowse (£6.2m) free-kick from Alexander-Arnold allowed Danny Ings (£8.3m) to nip in and find the net.

“His finishing is quality but he works hard for the team too. It is important that he is fit and he’s back.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Interest in Liverpool defenders had been relatively high for this game considering Southampton went three matches without scoring between Gameweeks 14 and 16.

They even came into Gameweek 17 with a number of key absentees including Alex McCarthy (£4.7m), Jannik Vestergaard (£4.8m), Oriol Romeu (£4.5m) and Che Adams (£6.1m) who missed out due to self-isolation, knee issues, a calf problem and concussion respectively.

“Oriol [Romeu], maybe one or two weeks out, so hopefully for the Leicester game he is back. Moussa [Djenepo], looks not so good. Che [Adams] is only out with a concussion, so hopefully also back as soon as possible.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

They even lost Moussa Djenepo (£5.4m) to hamstring problem during the first half, making way for 21-year-old Nathan Tella (£4.4m), but still had enough about them to absorb Liverpool’s pressure and stretch the visitors’ defence on the counter-attack in key moments.

“(Djenepo) had a bad injury history with his muscles. It was maybe a setback. I said to him head-up, he will come back strong and I tried to give him a lift.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

“We had so many injuries and still competed. I think the system works.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Southampton XI (4-4-2): Forster; Bertrand, Bednarek, J Stephens, Walker-Peters; Djenepo (Tella 32′), Ward-Prowse, Diallo, Armstrong; Walcott (Valery 82′), Ings (Nlundulu 77′).

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson, Fabinho, J Henderson, Alexander-Arnold (Milner 77′); Oxlade-Chamberlain (Shaqiri 57′), Wijnaldum, Thiago; Mané, Firmino, Salah.

    Is Gundogan a solid option going forward?

    Already have Dias and KDB and had been looking to add Cancelo for next few GWs but Gundogan outperforming most budget/premium midfielders last 4 matches

      Highly doubt it - he's never been an FPL option before despite the odd game where he gets an attacking return. You're better off with a second defender I think.

        +1

        +1, prefer Soucek, Saka or Neto

    2. jayzico
      • 10 Years

      Are you on Transfer or Free Hit? I'm going Liverpool-less and got KDB, Sterling and KdB

      1. Goonerly
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Seems reasonable to get double-Kevin.
        Count me in!

      2. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        ha. double KdB.Sorry should be Stones, Sterling, KdB

    3. kime67
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      has he ever been

    4. Goonerly
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      He's been operating as a no. 8 in recent matches, getting into a lot of dangerous positions in and around the box, which has been great. He's a real threat there.
      It's just too hard to predict whether he will continue in that role, especially once Aguero/Jesus returns and City will play with a more conventional striker (i.e. not KDB or Sterling OOP). KdB may occupy the spaces Gundo would be getting into then, and Gundo may even be rotated more often.

      As always with any City player, there's a big upside and a big downside as well. It just depends on whether or not you want to take the gamble

    5. NateDogsCats
        3 months, 15 days ago

        I'm highly considering taking a punt on him given where he's played most recently. I'll be doubling up with KDB naturally but it's Gundogan or Sigurdsson, and while I'm happy having Sigurdsson, Gundogan is a much cheaper option that will likely outscore Siggy if he keeps playing in that role and if City turn things on. If not, it'll be a 2-3 week punt that didn't work out but shouldn't be the end of me

      Afternoon gents... All set for GW18? Team built towards 18 + playing FH19.

      De Gea

      Dias, Dier, Holding, Mitchell

      KDB (c), Sterling, Fernandes, Son, Grealish

      DCL

      Subs: Button, Taylor, Brewster, Bamford

      1. kime67
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        not ideal but the red arrow wont be huge

      2. Alan Sugar
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        looks good to me. No reason to think you wont gain rank 18 too, just need to dodge a Kane haul which isn't a stretch

      3. Ian & Zen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Looks good - incidentally, did you take any hits to get the team or none, or WC?

        1. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Built with no hits since blank + DGW announced... I fancied FH19 over 18.

    7. GuenDoozy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Non-FH team, good enough? I have 1FT and 2.3 ITB to make a change.

      Martinez
      Stones Mitchell Lamptey
      Kdb (c) Bruno Son Grealish Neto
      Kane Brewster

      Considered Lamptey > Holding but that doesn't really serve any purpose after GW18 as ill be starting Coufal for 19 and Holding has terrible fixtures following that.

      If i dont use the FT, i can do:
      Son + Neto > Salah + Soucek for free for DGW19.

      Cheers

      1. kime67

        not good enough. use fh

          Yeah? You think theres enough upside? I already have all the bif guns

        Do lamptey to dias and save the fh, dias has good fixtures beyond dgw19 and a good chance of cleanie vs brighton

        1. GuenDoozy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Cheers. No clear route to getting Salah back if i upgrade Lamptey though

      3. 2OLEgend
          3 months, 15 days ago

          More than good enough, imo

        • Ian & Zen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Not good enough as Lamptey is most likely out, and they are playing Man C. Brewster is a 1 point sub, so I’d change these two

      4. Tosa86
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        my FH draft for BGW18:

        Darlow
        AWB - Cancelo - Tierney
        KDB - Mahrez - Fernandes - Son - Neto
        Kane - Wilson

        button - holding - mitchell - brewster

        any suggestion??
        thanks

        1. kime67
          • 3 Years

          i like it very much. put grealish instead of mahrez

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            I'd stay away from mahrez. Nothing but pain since I bought him 5 gameweeks ago

        2. Goonerly
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Mahrez will only bring you tears

        3. Ian & Zen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Wait to see if Mahrez plays in cup semi or FA cup & then decide - if you’d like Man C, watch to see if Foden is rested for those games

      5. kime67

        even i could have earned southampton a clean sheet yesterday. I mean forster didnt have to do anything. Whats wrong at liverpool?

          I am stunned... wtffff

          • 11 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          It’s very clear that Salah and Mane have stopped playing together
          No surprise that the 7-0 was earned when they played separately

          1. GuenDoozy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 15 days ago

            This, there were times yesterday when the could have passed to each other and it would have been a goal

          2. faux_C
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            This is complete nonsense.

            Team is dysfunctional because of all the changes that are needed to make up for all the centre-backs being injured.

      6. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Those FH’ing are you bringing in Arsenal defender?
        Yet to keep a CS at home this season...
        Is it best to get Tierney / Holding or just avoid completely?

        1. Goonerly
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Get Tierney IMO.
          Threat going forward edges him over Holding

        2. mirkomen77
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          I'm getting Leno if Ederson still positive

        3. marcos11
            3 months, 15 days ago

            Gonna get Holding, decent price

        4. Tsparkes10

          Have exact money for this FH... thoughts??

          De gea
          Yedlin Tierney Stones
          Bruno Smithrowe KDB Son Sterling
          Kane Wilson
          (4.0, Mitchell, Kilman, Davis)

            Really nice. You BB or TC gw19?

            1. Tsparkes10

                • 10 Years
                3 months, 15 days ago

                Then I'd downgrade Tierney to holding and get a keeper. I'd worry about Mitchell too

          2. Tsparkes10
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            It’s a FH mate

          Can field 11 for gw18 and got I think 14 for DGW - and I'm bench boosting gw19

          Martinez. Johnstone.
          Stones. Shaw. Cresswell. Clark. Pieters.
          KDB(c). Son. Sterling. Bruno. Souchek.
          Watkins. Lacazette. Bamford.

          Any change?

          1. liner
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            I would just looking to change laca and sterling to salah and one cheap striker for gw19 double. Still think Salah will be good. No chip needed. Good team for gw18

            Okay to transfer out Salah, but why back when KDB has better fixtures for DGW & even better going forward & Salah has blanked in last 3 matches - waste of a transfer.
            Plus you can invest the price difference

        7. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 15 days ago

          I predict that Danny Ings will be the top scoring forward in this DGW.

          The reason? Leeds.

          Anyone else have any gut feelings of their own?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year

            KDB 25+ points

          2. NateDogsCats
              3 months, 15 days ago

              Definitely has tempting fixtures, I'm pondering moving to him instead of Vardy for the DGW. Vardy has good fixtures too but nearly every time I've targeted Leeds fixtures it has worked out...

            • Van der Faart
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 15 days ago

              Kane and Son will outscore many DGW players.

            First time I've considered going without Salah... and I like the look of it.

            WC 18, BB 19

            GW18 - 10 players

            Martinez (Fabianksi)
            AWB - Dias - Cancelo (Dallas, Cresswell)
            KDB - Bruno - Son - El Ghazi (Soucek)
            Lacazette - Watkins (Bamford)

            GW19 - 15 players x 2

            Son and Laca to Rashford and Vardy (-4)

            Martinez - Fabianksi
            AWB - Dias - Cancelo - Dallas - Cresswell
            KDB - Bruno - Rashford - El Ghazi - Soucek

              I did that in GW1 and still haven't recovered. Tread with caution.

              no Salah for a Double if extremely Brave, he will find form and goals

              Thanks both... just testing drafts at the moment, I can always do Son and Laca to Salah and Adams/Rodrygo instead.

              Don't love the lack of Salah, but I'd be more concerned about the balance of the team going forward - £ looks spread v.thin.

              Good article on the Athletic about how Liverpool are struggling without VVD, Gomez and Matip both in terms of building attacks from the back and in terms of threatening from set plays.

              I still reckon they'll turn it up a notch v Man Utd as they usually do v their biggest rivals and I think they'll also benefit from playing once in two weeks compared to three times for United. Still, the issues they have aren't gonna be easily solved and it makes it easier to go without them for the BGW/DGW I think.

                I think their stupidity in not signing a new centre back is unbelievable. Won’t win anything this year. Lucky to get top 4.

                They may trouble United but Rashford and Martial will destroy their central defenders for pace. Also TAA is not great defensively and may be vulnerable with no central cover.

                Not saying United will win, but they are set up to hit Pool on the break.

                Cancelo is looking great, should have had way more returns and looks good for a start.

                Is it too risky to make the Salah/KdB sub now? Nervous about price changes

                  I’m doing that move today before the price changes as it looks like there’ll be a .2 price benefit. Don’t normally make early changes but if it all goes tits up I’ve got the free hit to fall back on.

                  1. tbos83
                      3 months, 15 days ago

                      Yeah - I'd really like to avoid using FH if I can (currently have 10 playing in gw18) but the price changes could be significant. Nervous that KdB will play in the derby this week and also obv about risks of covid. Tricky.

                  2. NateDogsCats
                      3 months, 15 days ago

                      I'm not sure whether to do this or not. I was happy before planning on moving KDB out last week to get Kane in against Leeds and then moving both Son and Kane out for DGW19 to get KDB back and Vardy. Now I'm wondering if I should just do this instead for now, I bought Salah at 12.3 so I'll still make 0.1 on that, and if by some chance he drops twice before their next game then I'd only be buying him at 12.4 while KDB will probably likely rise minimum twice by then, and Son looks to be rising too. But I'm worried I'll be tempted instead to go without Salah for a while again.

                    This week cut down the lead of the person leading my mini-league by 24 points from 124 down to 100. So don't despair keep chipping away week by week and you can catch any score at this stage.

                        Nice work! I was falling away in both of my main minileagues from hovering around 2nd and 3rd to around 6th to 8th for weeks but I'm now close enough to the top in all of them that I can keep chipping away if I keep having decent weeks

                        True. I was 5th in my ML, 54 points behind the leader. i am second now, 15 points behind the leader.

                      I don't understand the Kwp love, he got given motm yesterday and this article says he played well.

                      I must have been watching a different game as the left flank was wide open, with Mane and Robertson firing in crosses and passes at will.

                      1. ChelseaGuy
                        • 4 Years
                        3 months, 15 days ago

                        Literally all the attacks came from that side but he didn't give Mane much of a real chance

                      2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
                        • 10 Years
                        3 months, 15 days ago

                        he had to cope with mane and robertson single handedly at times, they did fire in crosses but not always at the most optimal position as kwp prevented that. I thought he did well

                      All the people getting Spurs assets on their FH; I believe the only one to get is Kane. Villa will score and defend well. Kane can be the one to break that. being on pens helps for sure. Not an ideal game for Son or the defenders.

                        Watched the AVL vs BHA game where Villa dominated but they were too weak on counter attacks. I think the same thing is gonna happen and this is why i favour Sonny
