Liverpool have the form and fixtures to play a huge part in managers’ plans over the upcoming period in Fantasy Premier League.

The Reds are among seven sides who have a Double Gameweek 34 (DGW34), visiting Fulham and Everton.

That is preceded by a home fixture against Crystal Palace this weekend, while they also host Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the final three Gameweeks.

Who are their form players?

There’s been little to separate midfield duo Alexis Mac Allister (£5.9m) and Luis Diaz (£7.6m) over Liverpool’s last four league matches.

Both have scored twice and supplied an assist, with the former edging it by 26 points to 25 due to his extra bonus points.

After returning from injury with an appearance off the bench in Gameweek 28, Mohamed Salah (£13.4m) has scored in two of his subsequent three starts to collect 17 points across Liverpool's last four matches.

Darwin Nunez (£7.7m) has profited from a run of starts, scoring once and supplying a pair of assists.

Who is most likely to score?

Despite his limited minutes, Salah dominates the underlying goal threat statistics.

The Egyptian has averaged a shot every 11.6 minutes over the last four matches, while his 24 shots, 15 shots in the box, five big chances and 10 shots on target all rank top for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

But Salah has been let down by a surprisingly low conversion rate, scoring with a mere 8.3 per cent of his chances.

Nunez and Diaz, meanwhile, are near-identical for shots, big chances and shots on target. Although the former has the edge over his team-mate by 14 shots in the box to 10, Diaz has been the more reliable finisher – he has scored with 13.3 per cent of his shots compared with Nunez’s 6.3 per cent.

Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai (£7.1m) have also boasted similar goal threats. Both have had four shots in the box and three shots on target, although most of their attempts have been from long distance.

Who is most likely to get an assist?

Diaz has impressed yet again when it comes to supplying scoring opportunities for his team-mates. The Colombian leads the way with 14 key passes over the last four matches, while his three big chances created place second. 

Szoboszlai claims second spot with 11 key passes, matching Diaz’s average of 26 minutes per chance created. Mac Allister and Salah are again in the mix, with eight and six key passes respectively.

Meanwhile, Andrew Robertson (£6.4m) has the clear advantage over his fellow full-back Conor Bradley (£4.3m).

The Scot’s 21 minutes per key pass is nearly three times as quick as the 60 minutes of Bradley, while Robertson’s four big chances created is a team-leading total.

Player Key passes Big chances created  Mins per key pass
Diaz 14 3 26
Szoboszlai 11 0 26
Mac Allister 8 1 45
Robertson 8 4 21
Salah 6 2 46
Bradley 5 0 60
So, who are the best Liverpool picks?

Salah is far and away the best option among the Liverpool contingent and looks like a must-have for the remainder of the campaign.

Diaz's superior threat inside the opposition box gives him the edge over Mac Allister as the next-best Reds asset, with the Colombian's creativity also proving a major influence on the attack.

As always, Nunez's statistics are encouraging yet his low conversion rate shows just why he often frustrates.

At the back, a single clean sheet in their last 10 league matches suggests investment in the Reds' rearguard is far from essential right now, with a double-up on the Arsenal defence looking a far more profitable tactic.

Those who have loaded up on budget assets such as right-back Bradley and/or goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher (£3.9m) should also be aware that Liverpool's first-choice pair Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.4m) and Alisson (£5.7m) are close to a return to action, suggesting the former duo's minutes are likely to be under threat very soon.
