Fantasy Premier League tips now come in handy club-by-club form! At least they do right here on Burp, where we shall now suggest three potential Liverpool bargains.
Brendan Rodgers and his Reds of course came within touching distance of last season’s title, but it remains to be seen how they cope without Luis Suárez.
Likewise it will be interesting to see how Fantasy Football players cope without their most popular choice of captain – it was assured mutual destruction insofar as not captaining him left you prone to falling behind everyone else, so the Uruguayan’s departure blows the whole thing wide open.
Unless of course another dominant force emerges. Daniel Sturridge, perhaps? At £11.5m the England forward is too pricey to be one of our LFC-flavoured Fantasy Premier League tips, so try to make do with these instead…
Rickie Lambert – £7.5m
The former Southampton forward’s goals and assists made him one of last season’s highest points-scoring forwards, and he should theoretically find chances even easier to come by at his boyhood club.
Even when he doesn’t start he’ll provide a real threat from the bench – just make sure you have alternatives in place in case he doesn’t feature.
Jon Flanagan – £5m
With José Enrique still on the comeback trail – you know, a trail you make comebacks on – young defender Flanagan looks set to start the season as Liverpool’s first-choice left-back.
Mind you, Enrique is also priced at £5m so you could really have either. Keep an eye out also for how much FPL decides on-loan right-back Javier Manquillo is worth, although at just 20 the Spaniard might not dislodge Glen Johnson just yet.
Lazar Marković – £7.5m
With the £20m-in-real-life winger listed as a midfielder, he could be cheap at that price if – as looks like being the case – he makes himself a fixture in Rodgers’s side this year.
He’s only 20 though, so treat with caution. Additionally we’d be wary of Raheem Sterling at £8.5m – he too is only a babe, and as such could be due a dip in form.
If you must have a Liverpool midfielder then perhaps £8m Philippe Coutinho is the man to fulfil your fantasy needs.
