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.

      Utd, Villa and Burnley

        Best 4.7 defender out of that lot? I have Konsa in my team already.

        1. Kannbury
            3 months, 7 days ago

            I have C.Taylor as he is cheap and frees up funds, annoyingly he is injured and not sure If he will even make the double game week.

            Don't think there are any good option under 4.7 that fits the criteria. I would probably go with Holding at 4.5. Plays in 18 and only 1 game in 19 but has good fixtures against Palace and Newcastle

      • Kannbury
          3 months, 7 days ago

          After a week off resting and soul searching I fully expect Liverpool to come back strong. Salah TC for me.

              Not for me.

              If KDB starts in that advanced position again against Brighton, he'll be my TC in the DGW for sure.

              1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 7 days ago

                This for me but needs to continue the same form in the 2 cup games coming up before GW18

                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  Hope he doesn't play in the cup games, especially the BIR one

                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  KDB won't play in the cup game

              2. Kannbury
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  He is looking good again, will make for a difficult decision!

                Wouldnt TC with liverpools form but still think him, bruno and KDB are equally good options for captain gw 19

                Being defeated and soul searching does not necessarily mean that your performance will change.

                1. Kannbury
                    3 months, 7 days ago

                    Very true this, I'm hoping because it's Man U that might provide some extra motivation.

                    1. Elly88 > KTR (Kevin The …

                      Myself i will just go for fixtures and captain Bruno. In two easy fixtures, there is a higher probability of running riot in one game.

                    Bruno or KDB for me. Bruno leading so far.

                    Can see Utd beating liverpool in the Double and winning both games

              5. Who are all Lukakus
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 7 days ago

                Have a pretty bad week with no Spurs, no WHU, and Mo(c) blank 3 times in a row.

                Looking into the tricky fixtures, given Welbeck will not make it, I have 9 players for BGW and 11 players for DGW already.

                A. Zouma to Dias (10 playing)
                B. Zouma to Stones (10 playing)
                C. Salah to Sterling (10 playing)
                D. Either B or C plus Welbeck to Wilson for -4 (11 playing)

                Martinez
                Cancelo Maguire Holding
                KDB(c) Bruno Grealish El Ghazi
                DCL Welbeck
                Blank: 4.0m Zouma Dallas Salah Bamford

                1. Stand By Mee
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  C or D if you want to keep Wilson for 4 gws. It might not pay off but it should over a longer period

                  1. Who are all Lukakus
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 7 days ago

                    If Welbeck doesn't play, Wilson just need to score 4 points against SHU to immediately pay off the hit, no?

                2. Abraham & Cheese
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  I'd just do B.

                3. Shineonme
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  Definitely C

              6. Cak Juris

                • 8 Years
                3 months, 7 days ago

                Best option for DGW 19:
                A. Rashford & Vardy
                B. Rashford & Aguero
                C. KdB & Martial
                D. KdB & Ings

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

                  D

                  • 11 Years
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  A or D probably D as KDB offers a strong captaincy option

                3. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  D the standout option for me

                4. Poison Apple
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 8 Years
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  D for me

                5. Abraham & Cheese
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  D or A

                6. Shineonme
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  D then A

                3 months, 7 days ago

                To get Cancelo/Dias for Ayling I'll have to downgrade DCL to Watkins.

                Any other defender that has bgw/dgw I could get for 4.6 and save DCL for bgw and 2FT for dgw?

                Or maybe a better option than Watkins for a striker with bgw/dgw up to 6.6?

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

                  Currently your defensive options are Targett but he's on four yellows or Lowton. Charlie Taylor potentially if we hear news before the deadline.

                  Upfront the only other option is Chris Wood but I've never been a fan of the Burnley attack.

                  1. The Train Driver
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 7 days ago

                    Those are some options, cheers. Seems my initial plan sounds better, can't see Burnley getting the points.

                2. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  I would pick Watkins over Wood that plays in BGW and has DGW (Utd, City, Villa and Burnley). For defs I don't think there are any good options. Burnley have tough fixtures and Targett has 4YCs

                3. Pogs
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  If Antonio plays in the cup this weekend, he would be a good option considering West Ham's fixtures in the DGW

                  1. The Train Driver
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 7 days ago

                    I like Antonio but he doesn't have a bgw.

                    1. Pogs
                      • 4 Years
                      3 months, 7 days ago

                      Can you stretch to Wilson

                      1. The Train Driver
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 5 Years
                        3 months, 7 days ago

                        Doesn't have a dgw :p but good games for sure.

                  I think you need KDB for GW18 but maybe not Salah GW19 due to 3 blanks

                RP - Done Salah to KDB last night as I was always going to make the move regardless if I'm FH.

                Worth doing Balbuena to Stones (-4) having 8 players for BGW18 and saving FH? Also will have core players from Spurs, City and Utd.

                  I'm not convinced with Utd def and GK. DDG seems to have a big mistake in him. Prefer Darlow for FH18.

                          definitely pick KDB over Sterling

                    I can't go out of the transfers page now to check the rules, as I made many changes to use FH. Can someone please tell me what will happen with my team value of my original team? Seems like many of my players will drop over the next week

                    Who will score more in GW 18?

                    a) Rashford + Wilson

                    or

                    b) Sterling + Saka

                      3 months, 7 days ago

                      Could go either way. I went with Sterling and Saka in my team.

                    Any other FH19 players out there starting to rethink their strategy? It'll be a big ask to hit on a high scoring 11 that'll play both fixtures vs those who play bench boost and will get minimum 16-20 points extra. Starting to think WC could be an option...

                    1. Milkman Bruno
                        3 months, 7 days ago

                        I’m currently using none of my chips for that dgw. Going to field 8 on 18 and 9dgw plus Kane and Son in 19. May use TC if anything but holding my BB, WC and FH.

                        I went from FH19 to WC18BB19 to FH19 and now at play no chips in 18/19. It's fairly team dependent but I consider WC a strong option, load up on City/United/Villa who all -

                        1. Play in the blank
                        2. Have doubles
                        3. Have great post-GW20 fixtures.

                        Plus you can then BB in 19 and save FH for 26/29.

                          Ditto....

                          Any particular reason why you've gone off FH19? Just better set up to roll it and use during later blanks?

                            My individual team, yeah. Will have 10 doublers after a hit in 19 and 29 is supposedly going to be a barren GW - perfect for the FH and means I don't have to compromise on BB26 when wildcarding.

                          gamble with less players in villa/spurs?

                          I will upgrade Davis to Lacazette & ditch Grealish & Holding. El ghazi is probably the one to get in the Villa attack & I don’t trust Arsenal’s defence

                      Repost. Bench boost in GW19 - already have Dallas and Bamford.

                      A) BB: Meslier + Brewster in GW19 (15 players if Brewster playes)
                      B) BB: Rodrigo + Nyland in GW19 (14 players)
                      C) BB: Meslier + D. Reid GW19 for -4 (15 starters)

                          Might not play both...
                          Guess Bamford is the best option

                          Salah to KDB right now yay or nay? He is at around 85% and might rise latest tomorrow. Salah on the other hand might drop. Hopefully those swings might cover up a 0.3 value loss such that I will be able to bring back Salah without downgrading other players.

                            You mightn't want Salah back if De Bruyne hits the heights.

                            I done the move last night. I was bringing in KDB for Salah regardless if I was FH or not.

                                With Rona still around I will not free hit if I have at least 8 players. There could be a week when almost all fixtures could be cancelled.

                          Is Struijk of Leeds likely to keep his place?

                              Well it looks like he will at least play the first game of the double in midfield as Phillips is suspended. Wether or not I BB GW19 potentially hinges on his likelyhood of playing both matches

                            depends when Llorente and Cooper are back. I think he will lose his place first before Alioski

                          So my plan over the next 2 weeks is to do Dunne to Yedlin this week so I have 11 men out.

                          Then next week DCL to Bamford and KWP to Dias for free.

                          However I have the perfect money to do this. Is it worth doing all 3 transfers for a -4 this week in case I'm priced out? I'll still have 11 out this week if I do all 3 moves. I'll basically just be playing Dias instead of DCL

                            I would hold...

                            You still have DCL (SGW) and KWP (DGW) for GW19.
                            If everything should go wrong, you could always do Bamford and Stones/Cancelo? (might already have one of those)

                            Think it is more likely that Bamford might drop GW18 of all the FHs..

                            Do otherwise you will be gutted if you are priced out.

                          If you had this team worth £82.0 from the start of the season (without any bench cover) and didn't touch it at all

                          Martinez 4.0
                          Creswell Bednarek Dallas 4.0 4.0

                          DCL Wilson Bamford

                          You would have had 1,119 points with a 2k Overall Rank

                          Replace Soucek + Wilson with Bruno + Kane and this dead team would be 4th in the world 🙂

                            Did I pick the right 2 of these 3 players? De Bruyne / Sterling / Rashford

                            I'm also not sure about McGoldrick/Welbeck or whether i should invest in a dif striker?

                              Yes but I'm not a fan of double United defence there. Have you enough left for a second playing keeper in a separate game in the, hopefully slim, chance of games being postponed.

                            Martial or Cavani? Assuming Martial is the safer bet but the .9 difference would help me out massively

                              I think Cavani will score more in the dgw but he's out of the bgw...

                            they will share the minutes (together with Greenwood / James) which makes both pretty bad options...
                            Only Bruno Rashford plus Maguire / AWB are nailed
