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.

    Why no Salah in GW22 cap poll?

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      FFS incompetence

    2. Hazz

      Good question.

    3. AzzaroMax99
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Maybe they know something that we don't...

    4. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Because he's the obvious choice. It's like asking who will win the French League, basically who will finish second

      1. COVID-CASUAL
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Who do you think will win the French league?

      2. Ode
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Well we all know he is going to be the most selected one anyway so no point adding him

      3. Rupert The Horse

        The sites just not what it was any more. So many faults.

      Disastrous gw but how am.i looking this wk?

      Martinez

      Stones/Cancelo/Digne/Robo

      Grealish/Salah/Gundo/Bruno

      Dcl/Antonio

      (Coufal/Soucek/Brewster)

      Saving ft

      Should I play both West ham instead?

      1. AzzaroMax99

        g2g imo
        who's your C?

          Don't know yet tbh

      2. AC/DC AFC

        Similar to the weekend

        1. camarozz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Exactly same as wk end.

          Probably same outcome.

    6. The Rumour Mill
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      A captain poll without Salah as an option.... ok then

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Guess they don't like the way he walks, like an Egyptian 😉

      2. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        He ruined the FFS Mane pick

      3. John Nerdelbaum
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        It's a separate poll for Greek Freak

    7. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Brighton have conceded only 1 goal in their last 4 games which were against MCI, TOT, LEE, FUL. I know Salah is the obvious captain choice but maybe we should go for someone else instead?

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Who? There's always reasons not to pick someone.

        1. Shark Team
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Man city probably

          1. GreennRed
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Mmm. Burnley. Can see a lot of City platers getting kicked and the Dyche artists winning frees.

          2. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Who from Man City?

            Pep will pick Wednesday's team at Burnley with Sunday's selection for Liverpool firmly in his mind.

            1. Shark Team
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Maybe Sterling if you own him and then Cancelo

    8. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Somebody talk me out of keeping Rashford. I've this feeling he answers the haters with a big performance. Sort of thing he would do.

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Why do you want to be talked out of it?

        1. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Because I don't believe my own words...lol...

          1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            I would find it hard to sell with those fixtures, fwiw.

            1. Jon Walter's Hatty
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Yeah he is just one of the worst FPL assets to watch in terms of effort but that is how he operates. Maybe one more with the option of Son in for him for WBA next week...

              1. Threat Level Midnight
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                Lol he literally might be the hardest working player in the Prem. It has absolutely nothing to do with effort. His work rate is outstanding. It has more been putting himself in positions to finish, and NOT finishing is the biggest problem.

                1. Jon Walter's Hatty
                  • 7 Years
                  2 months, 19 days ago

                  I've watched him individually for several games thanks and he has spent a lot of that time static, frustrated and out of sorts. Won't take players on. Confidence low. Like Salah it can all change with a goal or a good assist but this is not the guy from the end of last season right now.

      2. John Nerdelbaum
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Who would you buy atm?

          This week either Grealish or Barnes probably. Grealish is a long term option with dgws in mind as I have no WC but do have BB.

      I know this will be an unpopular viewpoint I would imagine, but I can see Burnley limiting City to 0-2 or something.

      With the big game at the weekend in mind, I could see Pep just telling City to be keeping the ball all match and trying not to go for it too much.

      Considering going without a midfielder in the roulette game...

        Yeah saw those two 'rumours' that he posted on here.
        I think FFS rightfully deleted the Auba one, not sure if they deleted the other one.
        Sad state of affairs when people post potentially libellous stuff just so that they can appear to be an 'IDK' to a bunch of strangers. When in fact it's just regurgitating untruths.

        Looks really good.

        Really like your midfield.

        I'd be considering bench boost with that bench lol

        1. StayoutheSpiceZone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Saving the BB until 26. Cheers fellas. Got rid of Son until Kane returns... Spurs looked shot and Son looked cream-crackered!

      3. PascalCygan

      Martinez
      Cancelo, Cresswell, Dias, Robertson
      Barnes, Gundogan, Salah (c), Fernandes
      DCL, Bamford

      McCarthy, Antonio, Chilwell, Bissouma

      Got a FT but really don't see the need to use it, do i move Antonio off the bench?
      I feel like having a strong bench atm is good as fixture congestion and people being rested is happening very frequently.
      Having a good season at 15k currently really want to push into top 10k!

      Realistically looking at getting Grealish soon for the DGW but do not see an urgent need to do a shuffle, will ultimately need to reduce some of defence spend to free up funds for the premium assets when they start firing!

      1. Ode
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah definitely save ft

      2. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        play antonio over cresswell

      3. John Nerdelbaum
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I'd play Antonio over Cresswell personally

        1. thegaffer82

          Me three

            Cheers for the feedback, i seem to have an unatural love in with Cresswell!

    22. Ode

      Absolutely no idea what to do with my team, any suggestions?

      Martinez
      Dallas Cancelo Stones
      Son Salah Bruno Gundo Soucek

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        i'd save and play chilly over Dallas

        1. Zladan
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          This

      1. PascalCygan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Looks a solid hold

    24. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Is this a crazy transfer?

      Gundy > Sterling

      (In any other season the answer would be why on earth are you wasting a City spot on Gundy, and yes of course you should make that transfer you wally!)

      Feel like it could be a nice punt as I'm sure he'll start next game and be playing in the front 3, possibly as a false 9.

      1. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        It doesn't matter, just realised I'm 0.2 short of it anyway 🙂

    25. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Soucek or Saka to

      A. Zaha
      B. Barnes
      C. Maddison
      D. Hold

      1. Elly88 > KTR (Kevin The …
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Hold, you might want to keep Saka for the long-term.

    26. Kasper the ghost keeper
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Bench one
      A) DCL
      B) Bamford
      C) Watkins
      D) Gundo

      1. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        That is harsh. Watkins maybe, but I don't like it at all

        1. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          C but i'd want to start all 4

    27. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Terrible week with a captaincy fail, selling Bamford for DCL and Pep's act of brutality.

      Hopefully I'll be over it soon... One day...

      Anyway, OK to save the FT here?

      1FT 4.9ITB
      Martinez
      Cancelo Stones Justin

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        looks good to bank the transfer.

        After this GW, are you open to reversing the DCL to Bamford move?

        1. PascalCygan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Yes, would be open to it. Leeds just looked so bad recently - that was horrible to watch yesterday! But I've learnt to accept and confront the fact when I've made mistakes in this game! Thanks

          1. dbeck
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            i did the same, ripped out bamford and upgraded def to get in Digne. I may just reverse that move next week

      2. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Save I think

        1. PascalCygan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Thanks

    28. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Which is the best option?

      A) Soucek -> Grealish

      B) Play Soucek and save transfer

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        huge Jack fan, i'd make the move

      2. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        A

      3. Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Maybe looking below might help 😉

    29. Rolls-Royce
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Jack Grealish is statistically the third-best player in Europe after Messi & Lewandoski this season. 😮

      1. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        In what aspect?

        Jack has been bloody brilliant this season. Third best player in Europe is stretching it a wee bit.

        Fair play to him though!

        1. Rolls-Royce
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Statistically according to Whoscored. Jack's numbers are insane this season.

      2. AuFeld
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Statistically best? How?

      3. FPL.team
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        There are many statistics, which ones in particular?

    30. rnrd
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      TAA is finding form isn't he?

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        that goals vs spurs looks like its done him the world of good, was excellent yesterday

        1. rnrd
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          it's been cooking the last few Gameweeks I think. More projection upfront, better crossing

      2. The Point About It Is
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        yes, looking good but has tough GW 23/24 so i am watching atm.

        1. rnrd
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          I agree for 23 but remember TAA at Leicester last year..

      3. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        He certainly is.

    31. Atimis
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Which one would you do ?

      1) Soucek to Grealish, get Antonio for free for GW23.

      2) Keep Soucek, do Stephens to Grealish - means if I want Antonio for GW23, I have to take a hit (Already have 3 WH Souce, Coufal, Martin).

    32. STONEROSES
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Martinez
      Dallas Stones Cancelo
      Son Bruno Salah Gundogan
      Bamford DCL Antonio

      Sub: McCarthy, Soucek, Cresswell, Chilwell

      Is this bench right?

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        whats your read on chilly? dropped for Alonso moving forward, thomas just bringing alonso is for his height vs burnely, or just checking out his squad?

        I'd like to think chilly starts next game and spurs look toothless without kane

      2. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I would go cresswell over Soucek

      3. Zladan
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Dallas v Justin and we have the same XI.

        Salah (c)?

      4. PascalCygan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I think so, though any order would be good with a bench that strong

    33. Rolls-Royce
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Are we gonna have more pressers tomorrow folks?
