FPL pre-season: Darwin scores four off the bench

Liverpool, Leeds United and Crystal Palace were in pre-season friendly action in the last 24 hours and we’ve got all the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) talking points covered.

There’s goal, assist and line-up information, too, while Premium Members of Fantasy Football Scout can view the pre-season minutes tracker at the bottom of this piece.

LIVERPOOL 5-0 RB LEIPZIG

  • Goals: Salah, Nunez x4
  • Assists: Firmino, Diaz, Alexander-Arnold, Elliott, Carvalho

Match highlights

Reports of Darwin Nunez‘s (£9.0m) ineptitude may have been greatly exaggerated – and now we have the opposite problem.

Such is the fickle world of Fantasy Football that yesterday’s donkey is today’s thoroughbred, with Darwin’s four-goal salvo against RB Leipzig seeing his FPL ownership steadily rise overnight.

“Too eager to impress but still early days” was our reasoned mitigation of his first two goalless pre-season run-outs, so there has to be just as much perspective-placing when things go right at the other end of the pitch.

Two of his strikes probably shouldn’t have happened: the first was a penalty that regular taker Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) stepped aside for, while the fourth owed much to some hideous handling from Leipzig goalkeeper Janis Blaswich.

“Mo gives Darwin the penalty and Darwin, Pandora’s box was open. That’s of course a perfect night for him.

“We always think that if you pay a lot of money then the players feel no pressure or whatever. They are all completely normal human beings and the first touch is not perfect then all of a sudden… This generation of players read social media, which is really not smart, but they do. All of a sudden you get in a rush and these kinds of things. That’s the best way obviously to stop all these discussions. He’s a different striker to what we have or what we had, but he’s a really good one.” – Jurgen Klopp

One positive view is that Darwin keeps finding himself in excellent goalscoring positions, whether the chances are spurned as they were against United and Palace or despatched in the manner they were against Leipzig. Getting lots and lots of opportunities is a good thing and, as we’ve seen with Salah over the years, you don’t have to be the most prolific of finishers to become a viable FPL option.

And the more options we Fantasy managers have, the less ‘template’ the game becomes – so let’s hope for the likes of Darwin, Raheem Sterling (£10.0m) and Jamie Vardy (£9.5m) to give us plenty of selection headaches in 2022/23.

Diogo Jota‘s (£9.0m) injury hands Darwin a chance to impress from the off in Gameweek 1 against a defensively suspect Fulham, although Klopp does still have Roberto Firmino (£8.0m) available through the middle. It was, indeed, the Brazilian who started Thursday’s match alongside Salah and Luis Diaz (£8.0m) in the front three, with all of Darwin’s good work coming as a second-half substitute.

It was a business as usual elsewhere, with Salah scoring, as he always does, and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) assisting, as he always does. The usual defence for a match in Europe was in place at kick-off, too, with Ibrahima Konate (£5.0m) preferred over Joel Matip (£6.0m). Konate was frequently wheeled out in the cups at home and abroad last season, with Matip regularly starting in the league, although the former was occasionally called upon domestically when Liverpool were up against pace.

Substitutes Harvey Elliott (£5.0m) and Fabio Carvalho (£5.5m) also impressed in the front three in Thursday’s rout, each assisting a Darwin goal; they very likely won’t be in the starting XI come Gameweek 1 but can maybe expect to see a bit more game-time than usual this season, with the allowance of five substitutes presenting them with more cameo opportunities and the occasional start.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Adrian (Davies 60′); Alexander-Arnold (Milner 60′), Konate (Matip 46′), Van Dijk (Gomez 60′), Robertson (Tsimikas 46′); Fabinho (Bajcetic 60′), Thiago (Jones 60′), Keita (Henderson 46′); Salah (Elliott 60′), Firmino (Nunez 46′), Diaz (Carvalho 60′)

LEEDS UNITED 1-1 CRYSTAL PALACE

  • Goals: Rodrigo pen | Mateta
  • Assists: Summerville | Ayew

Rodrigo (£6.0m) was on target with a second-half penalty as Crystal Palace and Leeds United rounded off their tours Down Under.

A rusty-looking Patrick Bamford (£7.5m) and substitute Mateusz Klich (£5.0m), two takers of Leeds’ spot-kicks in the last couple of seasons, were both off the field at the time, however.

A bruising encounter in Perth saw the Whites lose two players to injury, with new signing Luis Sinisterra (£6.5m) and Adam Forshaw (£4.5m) both limping out of the action in the first half.

“Luis Sinisterra had a little hamstring injury. We’re hopeful it’s not too much or too long or too severe. Any time we have a hamstring injury, I’m totally dissatisfied because that’s reflective of everything we do with them physically. We’ll evaluate that and we hope it’s not so bad.

“And then Adam Forshaw had Mateta lean on him a little bit and tweaked his knee. We’re hopeful as well that one’s not so bad, but we’ll get more information on it in the next days.” – Jesse Marsch

Leeds already have four other players red-flagged for Gameweek 1, while Liam Cooper (£4.5m) hasn’t kicked a ball in pre-season because of an injury of his own.

Owners of Wolves assets will have watched today’s game with interest then, particularly those who are looking at Jonny (£4.5m). Leeds are down both of their usual left-back options for Gameweek 1, with the unconvincing Pascal Struijk (£4.5m) and midfielder Jack Harrison (£6.0m) each getting 45 minutes in that position here.

As for Palace, there are limited takeaways from their recent globetrotting as regulars such as Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m), Marc Guehi (£4.5m), Eberechi Eze (£5.5m) and nearly all of their senior central midfield options were left at home.

Jean-Philippe Mateta (£5.5m) tapped into an empty net to hand the Eagles the draw here, with Jordan Ayew (£5.5m) providing the assist on the breakaway.

Leeds United XI: Meslier, Kristensen, Koch (Hjelde 45’), Llorente, Struijk (James 45’), Adams (Summerville 45’), Forshaw (Roca 33’ (Gyabi 61’)), Aaronson (Greenwood 45’), Harrison, Sinisterra (Rodrigo 14’ (Klich 61’)), Bamford (Gelhardt 45’).

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita, Clyne, Ward, Andersen, Mitchell, Milivojevic, Rak-Sakyi, Ozoh (Ebiowei 65’), Ayew (Street 84’), Mateta (Adaramola 84’), Edouard (Phillips 80’).

    So Kounde and Koulibaly in for Rudiger and Christensen as it stands...

        Neither are better than Rudiger. Not even close.

        1. Horace Pike

          As a combination though

          Agree completely. Rudiger was amazing for Chelsea the last 2 yrs. Productive at both ends - world class!

      Think they're better off?

        It seems so, yeah. Hit the nitrous boost

          Refreshing that they actually got stuff sorted and over the line (though a slight initial delay)

      Not sure many people here have seen Koulibaly play then

      1. Horace Pike
        • 8 Years
        26 days, 1 hour ago

        He's massively overrated, but don't forget that Rudiger when it isn't a back 5 also looked woeful too

        1. Kaysonlad

            Big upgrade!

      Can't decide which 8M mid you want? Get 'em all.

      Kane
      Maddison | Saka | Mount | Diaz | KDB
      Zinc | Trippier/Botman | TAA/Robbo | James
      Meslier

      1. BECKS TO THE FUTURE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        26 days, 2 hours ago

        Apolos to Foden, Mahrez, and Kulu.

      2. TheBiffas
        • 1 Year
        26 days, 2 hours ago

        salah over kdb, sancho over mount and this is a winner

        1. BECKS TO THE FUTURE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          26 days, 2 hours ago

          Cheers, mate. Yer, if I end up going back to Salah, that's the route I'd go. I'm quite enjoying not having him in my team (while there are no actual games on haha).

      3. Ser Davos
        • 7 Years
        26 days, 2 hours ago

        apart from Kulu. FPL Gold last season

        Bowen as well

        Like the team though

        1. BECKS TO THE FUTURE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          26 days, 2 hours ago

          Yah they were both excellent. I'm banking against them carrying on that form!

        2. LangerznMash
          • 6 Years
          26 days, 2 hours ago

          Surprisingly, Kulu had the worst mins xGI of all the £8m+ mids. Kulu's was 201.8 mins per xGI suggesting a massive overperformance.

      4. BECKS TO THE FUTURE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        26 days, 2 hours ago

        Kane | Jesus
        Maddison | Saka | Mount | Diaz | Mahrez
        Trippier | Cancelo | TAA |
        Meslier

      Knee jerking

      A) cancelo, martinelli, Haaland
      Or
      B) walker, KDB, Jesus

      1. BECKS TO THE FUTURE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        26 days, 2 hours ago

        B but with someone other than Walker. Maybe Zinc or Trippier?

        1. svgcr
          • 10 Years

          Thanks. Have them both already and no other City defender.

    10. The Overthinker
      • 5 Years

      Formals at 5.5 looks interesting.....

      1. Tomerick
        • 8 Years
        26 days, 2 hours ago

        Not nailed unfortunately. Although worth keeping an eye on him as my personal observation is that West Ham spin a wheel each season to decide one player that will score all of their goals.

        1. The Overthinker
          • 5 Years
          26 days, 1 hour ago

          Oh yes. I gotta agree with you

    11. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 12 Years
      26 days, 2 hours ago

      How do people rank the top 6 attacks this season?

      My ranking below based on current squad

      1. Liverpool
      2. Spurs
      3. City
      4. Man united
      5. Chelsea
      6. Arsenal

      1. Botman and Robben
        • 5 Years
        26 days, 2 hours ago

        City above Spurs for me.

        1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
          • 12 Years
          26 days, 2 hours ago

          I thought about it but my reasoning was experience of pl and players peaking in their careers like son and Kane

      2. D.r.a.c.o
        • 4 Years
        26 days, 2 hours ago

        1. Liverpool
        2. City
        3. Spurs
        4. United
        5. Arsenal
        6. Chelsea

        1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
          • 12 Years
          26 days, 2 hours ago

          I played with arsenal over Chelsea

          I think it’s close but really like what sterling adds. Jesus whilst decent in his time at city didn’t really set it alight even with the amazing players around him but

      3. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        26 days, 2 hours ago

        Leicester above Man Utd

        1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
          • 12 Years
          26 days, 2 hours ago

          You rate them this season? Could be a different story with no Europe

          1. The Mentaculus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            26 days, 1 hour ago

            Yeah without the CB injury crisis & struggle to manage their squad through Europe, I wouldn't be too surprised if they finish above 1 or even 2 of Che/Ars/Mun

      4. Pukki Party
        • 5 Years
        26 days, 2 hours ago

        ManCity
        Spurs
        Liverpool
        Chelsea
        Arsenal
        ManUtd

        1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
          • 12 Years
          26 days, 1 hour ago

          It’s interesting. Many people think Liverpool may take time to settle and maybe slightly worse off with mane leaving which could happen

          Although klopp new signings in attack generally don’t take as long to settle compared to pep

          Another person who thinks spurs is the second best

      5. seamusseamus
        • 8 Years
        26 days, 1 hour ago

        Spurs
        Liverpool
        Arsenal
        City
        Chelsea
        United

        I think the loss of Sterling, Jesus and possibly Bernado is going to take a bigger toll than people expect

      6. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

          Interesting... defensively I could maybe consider putting Newcastle in the top 6 but I'm not sure I would for their attack

            It’s not great but I can’t think of one better either. 6th is tough.

      What do you think of Mount? Should buy him for the early games? Or get Mahrez instead?

      1. Bobby Digital

        Both!

      • 13 Years

      Given Ronaldo uncertainty what are the chances of Martial starting as striker at least the first couple of gameweeks?

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        26 days, 2 hours ago

        Uncertain

      Your thoughts
      Raya-Meslier
      TAA-Cancelo-James-Gabriel-Neco
      Salah-Mahrez-Guimaraes-Martinelli-Andreas
      Kane-Jesus-Greenwood

      Considering - Salah to Diaz and Greenwood to Darwin giving me 0.5 itb

      Will Diaz and Darwin accumulate more combined points than Salah and Greenwood?

      1. seamusseamus
        • 8 Years
        26 days, 1 hour ago

        Probably but there's better 8.0s than Diaz and no better captain than Salah

      Wow how is Jesus so highly owned

      1. D.r.a.c.o

        Cause he's Jesus, duh.

        1. LangerznMash

          He doesn't look a thing like Jesus...

        All the hardcore players joined first and picked him. Now others are joining, sorting by ''Teams selected by %'' seeing how high his % and thinking ''guess he's a must have''.

          Personally can't see how his potential is even better now at Arsenal at that price

            Because he is nailed which he never was at City.

      If you were going to pick two £8.0m mids then it would make sense to pick one 'safe' pick and one 'high upside' pick.
      Going off minutes per expected goal involvement data then Mount is the safe pick and Mahrez has the high upside factor.

      1. Horace Pike
        • 8 Years
        26 days, 2 hours ago

        Inb4 Deulo tells you it only makes sense to pick the 2 who will get most points

      2. Bobby Digital
        • 5 Years
        26 days, 2 hours ago

        Yes I'd say you're right. Diaz could be good too, don't know if he's a safe pick or one with high upside though.

        I like Kulusevski but worried about game time now.

        1. LangerznMash
          • 6 Years
          26 days, 1 hour ago

          Kulu has the worst mins per xGI and like you say a game time risk now.

      1. Lingard
      2. Martinelli
      3. Rashford for 0.5 more?

      1. Bobby Digital

        3. Hands down if Ronaldo leaves

      Still toying with 4-5-1, instead of 4-4-2 🙂 - What do you think?

      Raya

      TAA / Cancelo / Chilwell / James

      Salah / Diaz / Saka / Martinelli / Neto

      Kane

      Arteta: “We’re so happy, Alex is a high quality player who will give us options and versatility”.

      We already knew this I guess but it does somewhat confirm he will be deployed in numerous positions

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 5 Years
        26 days, 1 hour ago

        Could one of his positions be on the bench though?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          26 days, 1 hour ago

          Could be.. He's been nailed on the bench for the last years.

      2. D.r.a.c.o
        • 4 Years
        26 days, 1 hour ago

        Another good signing. But they really need a Bruno like signing to compete for Top 4

        1. D.r.a.c.o
          • 4 Years
          26 days, 1 hour ago

          Raphinha would've been a game changer for them

        2. MyNameIsRedro
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          26 days, 1 hour ago

          A Bruno like signing is absolutely not what Arsenal need

        Arsenal website say zinchenko is an experienced midfielder

          Arteta works part time on the admin side too

          Makes sense, he is a midfielder, always has been. Just the same as Delph was when he played LB for City. He'll probably cover for Tierney but primarily play in midfield.

          1. Dthinger
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            26 days, 1 hour ago

            who would he start ahead of in Arsenal's midfield?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              Xhaka?

            2. Humperdoo
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              26 days, 1 hour ago

              Whoever's injured, he can do it all. But maybe Xhaka when everyone fit.

      Have a feeling Forest will surprise many & have a great season. Great manager, great signings, great stadium. Tempted to punt on Awoniyi

      1. Humperdoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        26 days, 1 hour ago

        Heard they're after Dennis. I'd back him to play over Awoniyi personally. Taiwo hype is unjustified.

        1. adstomko
          • 6 Years
          26 days, 1 hour ago

          I agree but he'll just place it in the net while Lingard & Johnson do the hard work

          1. Humperdoo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            26 days, 1 hour ago

            Yeah maybe.

            I do like Forest like you. Love the manager. Good system for this league too. Similar approach to Brentford. Should thrive on the counter.

        I mean they've spent the most this transfer window so it's not a shocking statement

        1. adstomko
          • 6 Years
          26 days, 1 hour ago

          Well they didn't have a squad 4 weeks ago, so it's still impressive who they've brought in

    23. Je suis le chat

      Darwin ownership nearly 14%, template strike force looking like Jesus, Haaland and Darwin. Curious times.

      1. Humperdoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        26 days, 1 hour ago

        Been an exciting window.

      2. Horace Pike
        • 8 Years
        26 days, 1 hour ago

        Blankety blanks incoming, Jesus is a good player, good to own but I wouldn't be surprised if he's one of the best players on the pitch in the first 3 games but only has an assist to his name by the end of them

        Some Haaland Man City stats

        1- Haaland has 0 goals in 0 games for Man City, 0*38= 0 goals over the season

        2- Haaland was 21 when he signed for Man City, he's now 22 and still hasn't scored a goal

        The stats are there, ignore them at your peril, he's an overgrown milkybar kid

        Choose front 2 for a 3-5-2 lineup.

        1. Jesus
        2. Nketiah
        3. Martial

        Grealish great second season anyone? They say it takes a season to get used to Peps tactics and then they hit form. He’s cheap too. May play more now too.
