Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian (£4.5m) has overcome his ankle issue to start at Southampton this afternoon.
The former West Ham shot-stopper was dealing with an injury sustained in the Super Cup celebrations midweek but will be involved at St. Mary’s.
Despite Jurgen Klopp’s men going all the way to extra time against Chelsea, he has named a very settled side for Gameweek 2.
The front three of Mohamed Salah (£12.5m), Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) and Sadio Mané (£11.5m) are all in the starting line-up, with the Egyptian the most popular captain option for the weekend, according to our latest poll.
Meanwhile, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.0m) retains his place at right-back, with Joe Gomez (£5.5m) left on the bench.
Joel Matip (£5.5m) is chosen to play alongside the ever-present Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) and, of course, Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) remains unrivalled at left-back.
Liverpool face a Southampton side playing three-man defence of Maya Yoshida (£4.5m), Jan Bednarek (£4.5m) and Jannik Vestergaard (£5.0m).
Yan Valery (£5.0m) and Ryan Bertrand (£5.0m) are the wing-backs while Nathan Redmond (£6.5m) starts up front alongside Che Adams (£6.0m), with Danny Ings (£5.5m) on the bench.
Elsewhere, we may have already lost one of our £4.0m defenders as Diego Rico (£4.0m) drops to the Bournemouth bench today.
Charlie Daniels (£4.5m) comes in for him as the Cherries revert to a 4-4-2 formation, with Ryan Fraser (£7.5m) and Harry Wilson (£6.0m) on the flanks of midfield.
Not surprisingly, Callum Wilson (£8.0m) and Josh King (£6.5m) start up
However, the strike pairing may have a tough time up against Aston Villa debutant Douglas Luiz (£4.5m) this afternoon.
The defensive midfielder was signed from Manchester City this summer to provide some grit to the Villans’ midfield.
Luiz is the only change from the side that lost at Spurs last week, Frederic Guilbert (£4.5m) and Matt Targett (£4.5m) still kept out of the starting XI by Ahmed El Mohamady (£4.5m) and Neil Taylor (£4.5m).
Those who kept the faith in Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) were rewarded as he came in for Jurgen Locadia (£5.5m) to make his Brighton debut.
The Belgian looks to be in a front-three with Glenn Murray (£6.0m) and Pascal Groß (£6.5m).
Meanwhile, West Ham are indeed without either Felipe Anderson (£7.0m) and Sébastien Haller (£7.5m). Chicharito (£6.0m) and Robert Snodgrass (£5.5m) come in for the pair.
Everton name just one change to the side that drew with Crystal Palace in Gameweek 1, Jean-Philippe Gbamin (£5.0m) coming in for the suspe
Gerard Deulofeu (£6.5m) shifts back to a centre-forward’s role for Watford, after playing on the left of midfield last weekend, Andre Gray (£6.0m) dropping to the bench.
Finally, there are few surprises for Norwich and Newcastle as they go head-to-head at Carrow Road.
