Salah and Bamford reward patient owners as Son struggles without Kane

West Ham 1-3 Liverpool

  • Goals: Craig Dawson (£4.5m) | Mohamed Salah x2 (£12.6m), Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.3m)
  • Assists: Aaron Cresswell (£5.5m) | Curtis Jones (£4.4m), Xherdan Shaqiri (£6.4m), Roberto Firmino (£9.4m)
  • Bonus points: Salah x3 Wijnaldum x2 Shaqiri x1

Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) ended a six-match scoring drought/witch doctor curse to bring in a bumper 15-point haul for his ever-loyal Fantasy Premier League managers, his ownership levels dipping below the three-million mark just the once during his barren spell.

The 40.4% who ignored a purported curse from ‘FPL Witch Doctor’ and didn’t blink were rewarded with two goals against West Ham, the second a thing of beauty involving a sublime touch and finish by Salah from a supreme Xherdan Shaqiri (£6.4m) first-time ball.

The Egyptian’s haul was put into stark Fantasy contrast considering Jurgen Klopp benched Roberto Firmino (£9.4m), while Sadio Mané (£11.9m) missed out with a muscle injury downplayed as ‘a short-term issue’.

That meant Salah and Divock Origi (£5.2m) working as a front-two during an underwhelming first half, prompting Klopp to change his system at the interval.

“In half-time we changed the formation, offensive formation, so the set-up, Millie (James Milner) was now slightly deeper, like a double six together with Gini (Wijnladum), Thiago slightly higher.” – Jurgen Klopp

That returned the Reds closer to their more standard 4-3-3 and the rest was history.

Further back, it was a third straight match without a clean sheet for the Reds, although Nathaniel Phillips (£4.0m) earned post-match praise as Klopp also gave an update on the injured Joel Matip (£5.4m). 

“Outstanding game, everybody saw it – super professional, super calm, incredibly strong in the air, good challenges, good football. With Joel we don’t have the final diagnosis, specialists must have a look and stuff like this until we know exactly.” – Jurgen Klopp

The signing of Preston’s Ben Davies should ease the side’s centre-back issues, but Phillips would seem to be the current short-term solution available at a knock-down FPL price.

West Ham, meanwhile, were set up to stifle Liverpool, but offered little going forward, meaning a first blank in four for the 17.6%-owned Michail Antonio (£6.5m).

On the plus side, Craig Dawson (£4.5m) scored for the second match running, thanks to an assist from the ever-productive Aaron Cresswell (£5.5m).

West Ham United XI (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Rice, Soucek; Fornals (Yarmolenko 62), Bowen (Fredericks 79), Benrahma; Antonio (Noble 79).

Liverpool XI (4-3-1-2): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Henderson, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Milner (Jones 57), Thiago; Shaqiri (Firmino 69); Salah, Origi (Oxlade-Chamberlain 80).

Leicester 1-3 Leeds

  • Goals: Harvey Barnes (£6.9m) | Stuart Dallas (£4.8m), Patrick Bamford (£6.6m), Jack Harrison (£5.4m)
  • Assists: James Maddison (£7.3m) | Bamford x2 Raphinha (£5.4m)
  • Bonus points: Bamford x3 Harrison x2 Barnes x1

Patrick Bamford (£6.6m) starred as Leeds came from behind to beat a disappointing Leicester City.

A three-match run without an attacking return (and four without a goal) had prompted just over a quarter of a million FPL managers to sell the striker for Gameweek 21.

That impatience (or the fear of their man being this season’s Teemu Pukki) was punished most emphatically as Bamford scored one goal and set up the other two for his first double-digit haul since Gameweek 6.

The forward did finish the match with a dead leg, but played down the extent of the injury post-match, preferring instead to rue his decision to take himself off FPL captaincy duties in his own Fantasy team.

His ‘IRL’ manager, Marcelo Bielsa, was less confident about a groin issue that led to Rodrigo Moreno‘s (£5.7m) first-half substitution.

“I wouldn’t be able to tell you right now, but I have the impression that Rodrigo won’t be available.” – Marcelo Bielsa

Otherwise, it was a fine day for those with Leeds assets.

The 13.2%-owned Stuart Dallas (£4.8m) was again employed in midfield and scored his fourth goal of the season, while midfielders Jack Harrison (£5.4m) and Raphinha (£5.4m) continued their fine recent form with a goal and an assist respectively.

Harrison now has three goals from his last five starts while Raphinha made it a goal and two assists in two Gameweeks, although a muscle issue meant he didn’t finish Sunday’s match.

Leicester started brightly and Harvey Barnes‘ (£6.9m) opening goal confirmed his own excellent form – he’s now produced attacking returns in six of the last seven games, while James Maddison (£7.3m) made it four hauls in five with the assist.

The Foxes switched to a back three in the second half in a (failed) bid to curb Leeds’ attacking threat, although they did consistently work keeper Illan Meslier (£4.7m), who made seven saves overall.

But the team struggles without Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) up top and Wilfred Ndidi (£4.8m) to protect the defence, a fact acknowledged by boss Brendan Rodgers.

“Make no mistake, we have won games without Jamie but the physicality of him and Wilf (Ndidi) benefits the team immensely.” – Brendan Rodgers

Neither will be available for Wednesday’s trip to Fulham, and the hamstring problem that forced 

Timothy Castagne (£5.7m) off after 37 minutes makes him doubtful too.

Leicester City XI (4-2-3-1): Schmeichel; Evans, Justin, Fofana (Ünder 80), Castagne (Pereira 36);  Mendy, Tielemans; Albrighton (Söyüncü 45), Maddison, Barnes; Perez.

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Ayling, Struijk, Cooper, Alioski; Phillips; Dallas, Harrison, Rodrigo (Klich 21), Raphinha (Costa 80); Bamford.

Brighton 1-0 Spurs

  • Goals: Leandro Trossard (£5.7m)
  • Assists: Pascal Gross (£5.8m)
  • Bonus points: Gross x3, Trossard x2 Robert Sanchez x1 (£4.4m)

A Leandro Trossard (5.7m) strike and a third straight clean sheet was more than enough for Brighton  o see off a lifeless Spurs.

It was the Belgian midfielder’s first goal since Gameweek 1, but it was rich reward from a fine team performance that boss Graham Potter rated his side’s best of the last two seasons.

His Tottenham counterpart, Jose Mourinho, was rather less enthusiastic about his players’ reaction to their midweek loss to Liverpool.

“I can imagine that the team when it loses is a sad team. The reaction after that defeat was not phenomenal, the fact that you lose, I don’t like to speak on behalf of the players, but they feel too much the absence of a player like Harry (Kane).” – Jose Mourinho

FPL’s most popular player, Son Heung-Min (£9.8m), added to the sombre air by producing just the two points for his 59.2% ownership for the second match running.

Without Harry Kane (£11.1m) to feed him chances, Son struggled. More than 60,000 FPL managers seem to think that might continue, making him the third-most sold player heading into Gameweek 22. Kane is top of that list.

And with Chelsea and Manchester City to come over the next three fixtures, more Son sales look inevitable unless Mourinho can find the right balance for his Kane-free side.

As for Brighton, a midweek trip to Liverpool is unlikely to inspire immediate investment in their assets, but a decent run thereafter (bur AVL CRY wba) should put some of their defensive stars on the radar, with goalkeeper Robert Sanchez (£4.4m) offering good value.

Brighton XI (3-4-2-1): Sanchez; Webster, Dunk, White; Veltman (Burn 72), March, Bissouma, Gross; Trossard (Connolly 79), Mac Allister; Maupay (Lallana 79).

Tottenham Hotspur XI (3-4-2-1): Lloris; Sanchez (Vinicius 45), Alderweireld, Rodon; Davies, Hojbjerg, Ndombele (Lamela 74), Sissoko; Son, Bale (Moura 61); Bergwijn.

    Did Arteta say anything about Saka’s fitness?

    Considering Saka or Rashford to Grealish this week

    1. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Saka hasn’t trained but he might train today and decision made last minute. I don’t think he starts tomorrow.

    Lloris
    Stones Cancelo AWB
    Salah Gundo Bruno Soucek
    Bamford Antonio Watkins

    Meslier Dallas Cresswell ESR

    I have 2 FT’s.
    I was thinking about finally getting in Martinez but feels a bit weird against Soucek and Antonio.
    So DDG could be an option with those fixtures.
    Any other moves you’d do?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Great team. I would look to start setting-up for the big DGW in 26. Good GK as you say would be useful. Maybe upgrade ESR?

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I’m tempted move on ESR but he’s just incredible value. But at the same time, like most I have loads in the bank just sitting there.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          He's ideal bench material. Just depends if you want 5 strong midfielders starting every week.

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Good point. I probably don’t as I like 3 up front.

    2. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I'm doing Soucek -> Son with a similar team, so I guess you'd also have money for that.

      Stand out C option in GW23 and he's also better in GW22 so no reason to wait with that imo.

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Are you not concerned with the lack of supply for Son?

        1. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I honestly don't care that much long-term since Kane will be back around GW24 and they are likely to have the best DGW26.

          And in GW23 I'm certainly not willing to bet against the field when his EO will be much above 100.

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Go for it mate and good luck. Not for me though, especially this week.

    3. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Any interest in Mendy?

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Slightly but I think he’s quite a poor footballer.

  3. Aster
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Why should I keep DCL?

      Anyone?

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years

        lack of options? leeds game?

      2. Sco
        • 7 Years

        Leeds aren't good defensively.

      3. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Could do well against Leeds.

      4. Aster
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Well, if I decide to bench him, I can play both Soucek and Pereira.

        • Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          Cos you just got him?

        • GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Who are your alternatives? 0/7.

          1. Aster
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Soucek and Pereira

              1. GreennRed
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 4 days ago

                Both in better form than Calvert Lewin.

          2. ivantys
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Vs worst defence in the league.

              1. Aster
                  3 months, 4 days ago

                  Did nothing against Newcastle.

                  1. ivantys
                      3 months, 4 days ago

                      Newcastle played really well that game, they also dominated Leeds before that but were unlucky to lose. Or just imagine Newcastle managed 17 shots against Leeds.

                      1. GreennRed
                        • 9 Years
                        3 months, 4 days ago

                        He has no goals in 7 PL games. Everton aren't short of attacking intent. He's not their only attacker off form. Buy DCL, not his alleged poor opposition or 'because he has Digne, Sigurdsson, James, Richarlison,' to provide him. He did well without some or all of them at various points last season. A gammy deflection off his knee will get him back and confidence high. Luckily he's like Werner, won't hide even if he' s not scoring and confidence is low. Team player.

                Similar team to mine. I'm doing Digne to Maguire.

                  • 7 Years

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                3 months, 4 days ago

                Thoughts on doing a city triple up defense (Dias, Stones, Cancelo) for next few game weeks right through all the doubles?

                I'll have decent bench options to come in when they inevitably get rotated.

                I get the feeling most people will scramble to get KDB in for the doubles if he's back but I'm not sure which big hitter i'd want to sacrifice.

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

                  Overkill imo.

                  • 8 Years
                  3 months, 4 days ago

                  I was very tempted to do that but opted for Gundo and 2 defenders.

                3. Tonyawesome69 FH36
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 4 days ago

                  Prefer 1mid and 2def City combo

                4. Offside Trapattoni
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 4 days ago

                  Thought about this too however I still think Laporte can (and will) wrestle minutes away from Stones.

                  Walker doesn't seem a popular option around here however he and Dias are the two most likely to receive consistent minutes, while Gundogan is critical to Pep's midfield - and that sets up an easy transfer to get KDB back when he's fit..

                • 4 Years
                3 months, 4 days ago

                Best striker punt? Can afford anyone, already have Bamford and Antonio.

                  There's really only those 2, Watkins and DCL at the moment.

                  • 2 Years

                  Watkins, DCL and Ings. Slim pickings for strikers

                  • 9 Years

                  Watkins or Ings. Newcastle improvi g from a low, nó attacking, base so Wilson could be a good punt.

                  Why are you selling Kane? He is expected to be back for the City game.

                    • 3 Years
                    3 months, 4 days ago

                    Think about it.

                    - Kane vs. City isn't a plush fixture anyway. No-one is betting he hauls in that. Not a priority transfer.
                    - You miss a playing spot for GW22 & GW23 (depends on team strength, but it's a wasted option otherwise)
                    - Many are planning to WC in GW25 (when Kane may be back) anyway

                  10M in bank to improve this Team - 1 FT and loosely planning to BB DGW26. Advice appreciated!

                  Martinez
                  Dias, Stones, Coufal
                  Salah, Fernandes, Son, Gundogan, Soucek
                  DCL, Bamford

                  (Steer, Mitchell, Brewster, Douglas*)

                  A) Douglas -> TAA
                  B) Douglas -> Robertson
                  C) Douglas -> Targett
                  D) Brewster -> Watkins
                  E) Brewster -> Wilson
                  F) Something Else!

                  Cheers.

                    C or D. Targett is an excellent option imo

                  Sterling or Salah for the armband this week?

                    Going with Raz myself and Salah VC

                    Salah - I have sterling, i think he will play but oddly Pep doesn't normally start him against Burnley for some reason so seems a bit too risky to cap (maybe biased as a burnt Sterling captainer this week though!)

                  Liverpool finally sign a proper CB. Pool defenders an option now?

                    3 months, 4 days ago

                    you think it moves hendo back to midfield & Phillips starts or Phillips hits the bench?

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

                      Fabinho and Kabak will be the CB pairing I think

                    2. Tonyawesome69 FH36
                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 4 days ago

                      I think they need Hendo in midfield more than Fabinho

                  2. GreennRed
                    • 9 Years
                    3 months, 4 days ago

                    Remains to be seen how good a defender he is. If they regularly have Matip and Fabinho together the defence will be alright.

                    Doubt he'll be straight in.

                    Make them better, but not in the short term with City & Leicester.

                  Martinez - Forster
                  Cancelo - Stones - Targett - Shaw - Mitchell
                  Barnes - Gundo - Bruno - Salah - Pogba
                  Watkins - Antonio - Kane

                  0,3 ITB, 2 FT. What would you do? Time to sell Harry?

                  PVA heavily linked with a move to Arsenal. Mitchell should be nailed now if that happens.

                    I am eagerly awaiting the official news, so that I can potentially do Ferguson to Mitchel xD

                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 4 days ago

                  With City's 'trickier' fixture run after Burnley, are people that hold 3 City planning to change that to 2 to minimise the risk or holding firm?

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

                    Switching from 2 Defenders + 1 Attacker to 1 Defender + 2 Attackers

                    1. Stormbringer22
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 1 Year
                      3 months, 4 days ago

                      This ^. Already have 2 attackers + 1 defender so I feel like I am set. But definitely keep 3 City. They will likely have 6 games in 4 GWks

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

                    It's City. They don't do 'tricky'.

                    1. Fit_to_drop
                      • 1 Year
                      3 months, 4 days ago

                      Yes, but most teams hold 2 defenders and the chances of conceding are definitely higher playing better quality opposition.

                  3. Tonyawesome69 FH36
                    • 2 Years
                    3 months, 4 days ago

                    I'm holding 3 and currently on Stones, Cancelo and Gundo. I think Dias, Cancelo and Sterling would be my preferred 3. Also City should have a DGW in 24, 26 and 27

                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    3 months, 4 days ago

                    I might drop Stones but a lot of that is due to rotation. Dias has 10 clean sheets in 11 so he’s not going anywhere.

                  3 months, 4 days ago

                  Considering Brewster > Bamford, 4.3 ITB but gives me a benching headache with Saka, also considered Stones > Cancelo but worried Dias could get benched thoughts?

                        In which case I don't think that I would be looking to upgrade that bench any further tbf.

                  Good to save? Or Ferguson to a 5th playing defender? Have £2.5 itb

                      Save your transfer. Think i would play Bamford over Son, but thats just personal choice.

                      Definitely. From now, until 26 I will be looking to carry over as many FTs as possible to prepare for the BB 26.

                        sell 100%. CHO the preferred right wing back

                          Keeping for next 3 at least since I have a bench. He could be gold if he starts any.

                          1. zman575

                              i have a strong bench with dallas coufal and saka but his one point wonder yesterday cost me dallas's points left on my bench. if he starts he could be superb option at wing back but cho has been man of the match last 2

                                  3 months, 4 days ago

                                  Yeah so annoying, CHO's not even a natural wingback. There's no other Chelsea defenders I'm interested in and I can't trust any team with good defensive fixtures so I'll just keep first.

                                      fair enough? rudiger could be a bargain at 4.5 though buddy. if he starts vs spurs could be worth a downgrade for 2 easy clean sheets

                              What to do here?

                              a) Save FT
                              b) Vardy to DCL for free (but who to bench in that case?)

                                Prob save so you don't have a bench headache.

                                  Only worry is that I have just 1 player as sub, Vardy injured, Mitchel lost his place again. If more than 1 is benched again, can't field 11 :/

                              Any news on the fitness of KWP. Wondering whether to use my FT to shift him or get rid of Adams, or upgrade Soucek to Grealish.

                              Absolutely soul crushing week. Captained Cancelo with DCL as my vice. Got Bamford out for DCL. Mane as well as two United mid in my team. 33 (-4) all out...

                              Correct starters and bench order? Would you make any transfers?
