Fantasy Premier League managers face big decisions ahead of the first double gameweek of the season.
Liverpool meet Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United away in gameweek 24 - and here are three Reds players worthy of serious consideration ahead of the trips Molineux and the London Stadium…
Salah must surely be prominent in the thoughts of FPL bosses looking to cash in their triple captaincy chip with the double gameweek in mind.
Liverpool’s No.11 is in prolific points-scoring form, with a seven-point haul against Manchester United last time out taking his tally for the season to 133.
Some 58 of those points have been amassed in Salah’s last seven Premier League appearances and he averages seven points per game in 2019-20.
The Egyptian has previous against both Wolves and West Ham, too. He scored and assisted in Liverpool’s 2-0 win at Molineux last season, and has four goals in four appearances versus the Hammers.
As such, triple-captaining the £12.4m midfielder for gameweek 24 could prove to be something of an FPL masterstroke.
Another game, another assist for Liverpool’s – and indeed the FPL’s – top-scoring defender.
Alexander-Arnold set up a Premier League goal for the ninth time this season when Virgil van Dijk planted his perfectly-delivered corner home in last Sunday’s 2-0 win over United.
That, coupled with the Reds’ seventh successive top-flight clean sheet, saw Alexander-Arnold register 10 more points to take his season total to 128.
The right-back’s tally is 15 more than Van Dijk, the FPL’s second-highest scoring defender, and he averages a remarkable 10 points per game over his last six Premier League appearances.
Such a record brings with it a significant price tag, of course, with Alexander-Arnold currently costing £7.6m.
But more than half (67) of the 21-year-old’s FPL points this term have been earned in away matches, making him an attractive option prior to a gameweek in which his side play on the road twice.
Liverpool’s No.1 has been a reliable source of points since his return from injury, by virtue of playing a major role in his team’s formidable recent defensive record.
But, seemingly not content with a seventh shutout on the spin, Alisson hit rarefied heights when United visited Anfield last weekend.
By assisting Salah’s stoppage-time clincher at the Kop end, he became the first goalkeeper to set up a Premier League goal since Pepe Reina did so for Fernando Torres back in March 2010.
That moment of brilliance bolstered the £6.1m-Brazilian’s points total to 13 for the match and 64 from 14 Premier League appearances this season.
