Salah continues best-ever start to FPL season as Klopp discusses rotation

We continue our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Gameweek 9 Scout Notes with analysis of Manchester United v Liverpool.

For a briefer summary of all six of Saturday’s games, click here, while the footer at the bottom of this piece will direct you to our detailed Scout Notes on the other Gameweek 9 action.

MANCHESTER UNITED 0-5 LIVERPOOL

  • Goals: Naby Keita (£5.0m), Diogo Jota (£7.5m), Mohamed Salah (£12.9m) x3
  • Assists: Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m), Keita, Jota, Jordan Henderson (£5.0m)
  • Red cards: Paul Pogba (£7.6m)
  • Bonus: Salah x3, Keita x2, Alexander-Arnold x1

SALAH SHINES… AGAIN

Mohamed Salah (£12.9m) kept up his relentless FPL form with a hat-trick and assist as Liverpool recorded a thumping 5-0 win at Old Trafford on Sunday.

As a result, the Egyptian bagged his sixth double-digit haul of the campaign, which means that he has now equalled last year’s tally in just nine Gameweeks.

He’s now an astonishing 50 FPL points clear of any other player, having reached his century quicker than in any of his four previous seasons at Anfield. Just to underscore how exceptional his form is, he only passed the 100 mark after Gameweek 15 of his record-breaking 2017/18 campaign.

As for the Reds, a second consecutive 5-0 away win ensures that they have scored at least three goals in all eight of their road trips this term, while overall, they also rank top in all of the key attacking metrics.

JOTA HITS DOUBLE DIGITS AS MANE BENCHED

Salah maintains excellent form, Klopp on rotation, Man Utd’s struggles: FPL notes from Liverpool’s win

Diogo Jota (£7.5m), who started alongside Salah and Roberto Firmino (£8.9m) in attack, racked up 11 FPL points via a goal and assist, but is still yet to receive a single bonus point this season.

As the Portuguese featured on the left of Liverpool’s front three, that meant Sadio Mane (£11.9m) had to settle for a place on the bench, which manager Jurgen Klopp touched on in his post-match interview:

“We have to use the squad, that’s how it is. In a game like this, you don’t want to be changing six or seven times. But Diogo (Jota) before the international break was in outstanding scoring form then went to the national team, slightly injured and needed a little bit of time to come back.”

Klopp also explained his decision to hand Ibrahima Konate (£5.1m) his second Premier League start of the season, and therefore drop Joel Matip (£5.0m), ahead of kick-off:

“Ibrahima is training at the highest level and, of course, Joel is a great player, but we cannot just push it through all the time. We saw a few things where we thought it would be a good game for Ibrahima. Hopefully he will have a good game.”

Elsewhere, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m) bagged his third double-digit haul of the season courtesy of an assist and clean sheet, though the one blemish on an otherwise perfect day was an injury to the impressive Naby Keita (£5.0m).

“We have to see how serious it is. It was very painful but we’ll see. We won’t know until tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.” – Jurgen Klopp on Naby Keita’s injury

After their win, Liverpool remain unbeaten in 13 matches this season across all competitions and are one point behind Premier League leaders Chelsea heading into Gameweek 10.

UNITED COLLAPSE

Man Utd were booed off the pitch at Old Trafford on Sunday, after suffering a humiliating defeat to their rivals.

While we had flagged the Red Devils’ worrying defensive numbers last week, which had seen them concede four at Leicester City and twice against Atalanta during the run-up to this game, the nature of this collapse was remarkable, as United had largely been good against the big sides last season.

However, they were outclassed in every area in Gameweek 9, and as a result, have now taken just one point from their last four matches, with a goal difference of -8 during that time. 

They have also conceded more big chances than every other team aside from Newcastle United and Norwich City, which could be good news for Harry Kane (£12.1m) and Son Heung-min (£10.2m) on Saturday, though they will of course need to improve themselves.

Man Utd rank 18th for big chances conceded so far this season, with 22.

To compound United’s misery, they were reduced to 10 men when Paul Pogba (£7.6m) was shown a straight red card for serious foul play following a heavy challenge on Keita. The Frenchman is now suspended for three Premier League matches and will miss the meetings with Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Watford.


Man Utd XI: de Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Greenwood (Pogba 45), Fernandes (Cavani 62), Rashford (Dalot 62), Ronaldo

Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Keita (Oxlade-Chamberlain 63), Milner (Jones 27), Salah, Jota, Firmino (Mane 76)

      Just seen Brentford are 3rd for expected pts despite having one of the toughest fixture runs. Triple up essential soon?

      1. putana

        1 month, 2 days ago

        they dont score enough to do that

      2. Brehmeren

        By toughest, do you mean easiest?

        1. mynameisq
          • 8 Years

          You think their fixtures up until now have been easy?

            Thought you meant upcoming fixture run.

      Friends, what can we expect regarding Vardy and Raph? Likely to play?

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        If it wasnt arsenal I think they would 100% rest vardy as daka and nacho are great options to fill in. With vardys age I think its 50/50 as I dont think its any major, I mean he played 45 minutes. Raphinha looked bad so dont think he starts

        1. sirmorbach
          • 5 Years

          Thank you, sir, that's very kind!

        Pogba’s was far worse to be honest. Not much has been said about it but he went in to break Keita’s legs

      GW9 Mini-League Leaders:

      This is a report on the leaders of various Fantasy Football Scout FPL mini-leagues and community competitions after a high-scoring Gameweek 9 .

      ** FFSCOUT OPEN FPL LEAGUE

      Srecko Kurtovic is the new leader in the Fantasy Football Scout mini-league ( https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/68048/standings/c, league code gsnskx) after scoring 131 with double digit contributions from Salah(C), Foden, Smith Rowe, James, Chilwell and TAA, and has risen over 500 place to 6th overall, having wildcarded in Gameweek 8.

      This is now the Second Best League in FPL, based on the average scores of the top five managers in each league (youtube.com/letstalkfpl is still first). Our new top five are Srecko Kurtovic, Martins Kingulis, Dirty Dave, Temidayo Bankole and Mudit Malik, all of whom are in the overall top 50.

      ** FFSCOUT COMMUNITY MEMBERS LEAGUE

      Daniel Masson-Abraham leads for a third week in the Fantasy Football Scout Members mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/361/standings/c), which is also open to all. The league code is visible in the widget on the FFS Home Page when signed in, but only those with a registered FFS account (paid or free) will be eligible for prizes.

      Daniel is the new world number one with an 18 point lead over Ryan Agalawatta after scoring 122 with double digit contributions from Salah(C), Mount, Chilwell and TAA.

      ** LAST MAN STANDING

      See http://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2021/07/24/the-last-man-standing-competition-2021-2022/ for details of TorresMagic’s Last Man Standing competition (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/26234/standings/c, league code 6dcode).

      The highest scorer in Gameweek 9 was Joanna Czyz with 138 points (double digit contributions from Salah(C), Mount, Foden and TAA) after Livramento and White were promoted from her bench, and has risen to 1,727th overall.

      The safety score was 64, with 155 teams to be removed and 1,967 going through to Gameweek 10. It will remain open till Gameweek 22, but new entrants must pass all the previous safety scores (Home - torresmagiclms.simplesite.com) to qualify.

      ** HEAD-TO-HEAD LEAGUES

      Martin Stubbs still leads League 1 in MIR’s FFS Head-to-Head Leagues (www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/head-to-head-leagues/) with 21 points, despite losing to Ville Tuominen (Santigold) in his latest match..

      Curtis Ledger and Ikhwan Aryandi in League 6 both have the maximum total of 27 points after nine straight wins, and so do five managers in League 7, 11 in League 8 and 16 in League 9.

      ** TOPS AND VETS

      Dirty Dave leads for a sixth week in my Top 10k Any Season mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/1378/standings/c, league code kgmryk) and is now 24th overall.

      Diana Walker is the new leader in my Multiple Top 10k Finishes mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/1386/standings/c, league code 03t1fd), which is for teams with two or more top 10,000 finishes, after captaining Mount (who equalled Salah’s score of 24). She had three top 5k finishes in four seasons between 2009/10 to 2012/13 and is currently 3,224th overall..

      Apart from an interloper who has never finished in the top 100k, the new leader in PDM’s Top 1k ANY season mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/10031/standings/c, league code 01ef8y) is Blair Paterson, who scored 123 with double digit contributions from Salah(C), Mount, Foden and TAA. He has had five top 7k finishes, the best of which was 868th in 2017/18, and is currently 1,055th overall.

      Apart from an interloper who has never finished in the top thousand, Julian Hancock has regained the lead that he previously held from Gameweek 5 to Gameweek 7 in Jed Alexander’s Top 100 Any Season mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/194472/standings/c, league code pztxjt).

      2018/19 FPL champion Adam Levy leads for a second week in Simon March’s FPL Champions League (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/2594/standings/c) and has risen to 5,334th overall.

      Ray Freeman leads for a fourth week in Chaballer’s Hall of Fame Top 1k mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/39527/standings/c, league code 1zpaad) and is now 6,021st overall.

      Apart from an interloper who only started playing in 2013/14, Richard Irving is the new leader in Skooldaze’s FPL Vets 2006 or before mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/25315/standings/c, league code hz9bz2). He has had two top 10k finishes.

      ** MODS, CONS AND FAMILY

      Joe Collett is the new leader in the FFS Mods & Cons mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/366/standings/c).

      And last but not least, Obay Eid (FPL_Milanista) leads for a ninth week in the FFS Family mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/342/standings/c) and is now 426th overall.

                      1 month, 2 days ago

                      both are fairly nailed..and likely to start 8 or 9 out of 10 matches..
                      rudiger less price...and he has also started to take shots at goal recently..

                              James really doesn’t look like starting many games though does he?

                                Better risk some benching and big hauls against constant blanks

                            if u were going to play semedo yes..
                            or else depends on who gets demoted to bench..

                                I’d probably bench Zaha against city and play James.

                                  then yes.

                                    Too many injuries for luxury transfers atm. I don't like the cameo factor, especially when you can have such a strong bench this season.

                                  Sideways?

                                  I think there are better, more nailed options than James.

                                      Yeah, Laporte is also affordable

                                        No, not Laporte. Cancelo, Dias, Chilwell, maybe Rudiger are the players I'd prefer.

                                  Need some help with priorities, which one to get in:

                                  a) TAA (Have Salah, Jota)

                                  b) Chilwell (Have James)

                                      A easy

                                        1 month, 2 days ago

                                        really easy? Chilwell should outscore TAA over the next few though

                                        But TAA is a season keeper I do get that, but timing could be vital in this situation

                                            1 month, 2 days ago

                                            Among TAA and any other defender, I'd like to own TAA first unless injured

                                        Probably easier to post full team. Anything worth a hit here with 0.7 itb ?

                                                  Totally, need him to start as my ML differential in order to make up lost ground after a dreadful game week

                                                Two injuries coming straight off a wildcard is less than ideal 🙂

                                                  how did your wildcard go ?

                                                    105 points, so it went well in terms of points!

                                                        Only upsetting thing is I had Mount in there too all week and then switched to Havertz *facepalm*

                                                          yeah imagine getting mount in also, would have epic

                                                          I almost did Jota --> Havertz for a hit

                                                          I need to stop watching youtube videos, they were all talking Havertz, which is werid when Lukaku can't score in that team, why woul Havertz?

                                                            To be fair I feel like I would have scored against that Norwich team on Saturday! Ridiculous that he didn’t get any points

                                                              True . Captaining Havertz was a good option fn ridiculous he got zilch . and plus a lie down from MU was not anticipated

                                                              I see you did go for Raya

                                                              I'm considering Sá / Semedo --> Raya / TAA (-4) this week

                                                              But Sanchez and Ramsdale are options, what made you go for Raya?

                                                                The fixtures and their overall defensive stats. I do think Sanchez is a great option regardless of fixtures though as he showed against City

                                                                1. Andy_Social

Now I'll stomach a Liverpool thrashing and lot of saves, and then carry on with a decent run of fixtures. Doubt he'll leave my squad before my late-season 2nd wildcard.

                                                Sanchez
                                                Livramento - Chilwell - Azpilicueta
                                                ESR - Foden - Salah - Jota - Gray
                                                Toney - Antonio
                                                (Steele - Lukaku - Semedo - Williams)

                                                Lukaku to who for a hit, or should I keep and do it next week?
                                                Thinking Jesus, Auba, Vardy or even Firmino?

                                                  auba seems a good choice

                                                Thoughts on this

                                                Alisson
                                                Trent Rudiger Chilwell Cancelo
                                                Mount Salah Foden
                                                Vardy Broja Jesus

                                                Foster Livra Rice Hojbjerg

                                                This is as solid as it can get for triple up on LFC, CHE and City. Every spot loaded with points. Bench solid. I cannot help myself as have exact cash to pull off this monstrosity 🙂

                                                  7 rotation risks. Rather you than me.

                                                    As if there will be 7 players rotated in one GW?

                                                    Every starting players 1st choice in their teams.

                                                  not sure on double up on liverpool defence
                                                  the only team that concede least shot is City and Chelsea based on my eye test so Arnold would be enough

                                                    Liverpool have have 6 clean sheets and the only unbeaten team in PL.

                                                      yes but whenever u see their game they are some bit of luck that keep the cleansheet like vs Burnley and Palace

                                                        If opponents don't score, it is a clean sheet. Simple.

                                                1. Foden (own KDB)
                                                2. Mount (own Havertz)

                                                Looking at 5 at the back next week. A few guys I'd like to change.
                                                Would you just keep as is or take hit(s) or even WC and be done with it?

                                                  Definitely wouldn't wildcard! Perhaps Raph > Someone?

                                                    Benny out before Raph if fit

                                                    Raph has Norwich!

                                                Hey lads, hope you all had a good GW.

                                                Thoughts on what I should do here?

                                                3.1m to spare with 1ft.

                                                Thinking of:

                                                1) Vardy > Wilson / Kane
                                                2) Greenwood > Foden
                                                3) Alonso > TAA

                                                4) Combo of 1/2/3 for -4

                                                Thanks 🙂

                                                  I think you need TAA

                                                    Yeah I think this is a done deal, just whether I take a -4 to get Foden in too

                                                  Think you need to find a way to get TAA & Foden in that team.

                                                    So Greenwood > Foden & Alonso > TAA for -4?

                                                      100% seem good moves to me.

                                                What moves would you make if any for next game week?

                                                My ideal move would be Raph to Mount if injury comes back serious.

                                                Either way I need some Chelsea coverage surely? Right?!

                                                  Raph > Mount makes sense

                                                    Looking at Rudiger in for Dias aswell….either this week or next for a -4….what do you think?

                                                    1. Little Red Lacazette

                                                      1 month, 2 days ago

                                                      Why take out Dias?

                                                      1. tommo-uk-

                                                        1 month, 2 days ago

                                                        Would be either Dias or Cancelo to have 1 of each from City Pool Chelsea.

                                                          Find out about Raph and Vardy fitness first before thinking of taking out who I believe is the most nailed on City player atm.

                                                  surely you need the best defense right now

                                                  1. tommo-uk-

                                                    Which is? Chelsea I’m guessing?

                                                    1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
                                                      • 9 Years
                                                      1 month, 2 days ago

                                                      yes cause you already have City and Liverpool

                                                        It’s just deciding on which Chelsea defender and who to sacrifice from Dias & Cancelo

                                                I am currently Wildcarding. Am I able to get away with no Chelsea defenders and Pinnock instead to find Son and Kane?

                                                  Pinnock is injuree

                                                  But why would you? Chelsea are top of the league and flying, whilst Spurs are aimless.
