It’s no denying the reigning Champions League champions are quite impressive this season, with the Reds winning streak still unbeaten. The Anfield giants remains every soccer prediction punters leading favourite for the Premier League title this season.
With a double gameweek for Jurgen Klopp’s men, it is vital that Fantasy Premier League manager have three of Jurgen Klopp’s men in their team.
Liverpool, however, must first find way past a tricky Gameweek 23 fixture with an unpredicted Manchester United side, but is worth bulking up your squad with point-scoring Reds ahead of their Gameweek 24 fixtures against Wolves and West Ham United.
With that in mind, we have included, courtesy of Tyler P. Williams of gooner news, three of the club’s most valuable players to have in your squad along with other must-own assets from elsewhere in the league.
Roberto Firmino, Liverpool
Following the Reds 1-0 defeat of Tottenham Hotspur in Gameweek 22, former Manchester United captain Gary Neville lavished praise on the Brazilian saying:
“Any manager in the world would love to have him as their centre forward”.
In recent game weeks the Brazil international has underlined why he should be a serious contender for the starting spot for every manager in any Fantasy Premier League squad, racking up 25 points in four matches.
Firmino, however, might not score as many as his teammates in likes Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane – currently the CAF best player in Africa, but it’s worth noting that the former Hoffenheim striker is also £3m cheaper than the pair of them. You have got no excuse to recruit him ahead of his side’s promising run of fixtures.
Cost: £9.3m Points: 100
Sadio Mane, Liverpool
Judging by how impressive the duo of Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah they have been so far this season, it is hard to justify who to own and who to drop due to their price tags stretching north of £12m. But realistically, most Fantasy Premier League manager must pick one and drop the other.
For the second half of the 2018-19 season and the first half of the 2019-2020 season, Sadio Mane has outplayed his fellow African man, being directly involved in five or more goals for the Merseyside outfit.
What’s more interesting is the fact that Mane has been more productive against Manchester United than the “Egyptian Messi” who is yet to score against the Red Devils so far in his career.
It would be surprising to me if Mane reaches double figures in Gameweek 24.
Cost: £12.4m Points: 143
Andy Robertson, Liverpool
Robertson playing in the shadow of fellow fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold for most of the season, have seen him mostly been dropped by host of manager out there. However, The Scotsman has consistently delivered for most FPL manager who stick him, breaking the 100-point barrier in Gameweek 22.
Robertson has also outscored Alexander-Arnold in the previous three Gameweeks by 24 points to 20, with one assist and three clean sheets to his name for Liverpool in three fixtures.
With of three of the last seven fixture between Manchester United and Liverpool ending 0-0, Robertson stands a good chance of earning FPL managers cleaner sheet points than his fellow teammates.
Cost: £7m Points: 104
Jordan Pickford, Everton
Players from the Blue side of the Merseyside have also shown their worth in recent weeks to many Fantasy Premier League manager.
Since the arrival of former Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti at the Everton dugout in Gameweek 19, the Toffees have conceded just three goals and earned two clean sheets. In that time, Jordan Pickford has scored 16 points between the sticks for FPL manager and could benefit further from his new side impressive run of form.
Everton take on West Ham United, Newcastle United, Watford and Crystal Palace in the next coming weeks and the Englishman will fancy his chances between the sticks of adding to his six clean sheets this season – it’s worth to keep an eye on!
Cost: £5.3m Points: 71
Danny Ings, Southampton
Danny Ing’s prior to his arrival at Southampton has FPL manager ownership of about 220,000, according to gooner news, but seen his stock risen impressively with a reported 1.5m ownership in just 10 gameweeks thanks to a rich run of form which has seen the former Liverpool striker score nine goals.
The Saints exorcised early season demons when they defeated Leicester City 2-1 last weekend and they could stave off any relegation battle in the coming Gameweeks when they take on Wolves, Liverpool, Burnley, Aston Villa, West Ham, Newcastle and Norwich.
However, whilst Wolves and Liverpool do represent crunch formidable opposition, I would encourage FPL manager sticking with Danny Ings who has already find the net against Nuno Espirito Santo and Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, as well as Spurs, Chelsea and Arsenal.
Cost: £6.8m Points: 123
