Mane on Liverpool’s bench as Klopp names strong side to face Norwich

Sadio Mané (£12.2m) is back in the Liverpool matchday squad following his Double Gameweek 24 injury – but he has been named on the bench to face Norwich.

It appears as if Jurgen Klopp plans to ease the Senegalese international back into full fitness, especially with Champions League commitments coming up midweek.

Despite fears there would be rotation at Carrow Road, the remainder of the key Fantasy Premier League assets find themselves in the starting line-up.

Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) comes into Gameweek 26 as the most captained asset, the highest-owned Liverpool option and more double-figure hauls since Gameweek 26 than any other player.

Armed with all those accolades, the Egyptian finds himself in the starting line-up alongside Roberto Firmino (£9.7m), Liverpool’s away top-scorer this season, as well as popular full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.7m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.0m).

Meanwhile, Daniel Farke goes with an unchanged selection from the side that drew 0-0 at Newcastle last time out.

That means another start for Todd Cantwell (£4.9m) while Teemu Pukki (£6.5m), who scored in the reverse fixture, leads the line up-front.

Norwich City XI: Krul; Byram, Zimmermann, Hanley, Aarons; Tettey, McLean; Cantwell, Duda, Rupp; Pukki.

Liverpool XI: Alisson; Robertson, van Dijk, Gomez, Alexander-Arnold; Keita, J Henderson, Wijnaldum; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Firmino, Salah.

          Oh come on. 😉
          The defender made it look worse.

            Do you think the defender gets a head on it without the push?

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 14 days ago

              If I'm being honest, no.
              Defenders do this 100/100 times in box when corners are taken. If we give fouls for such soft touches, we'd get 10+ pens each game IMO.

              It hurts as a Salad © though 😀

                I guess we will agree to disagree.

                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 14 days ago

                  Fair enough TM 🙂

                  manes hand scuffs the defs back, which would have no effect. if hed managed a shove then yes

              • 8 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              He prob would have which would have negated the other defender allowing Mane an acre of space to shoot.

          Pushing is allowed if referee is inadequate 😉

            There was contact but defender was simulating. Made Salah looked like an amateur simulator 🙂

      2. Amey

        It was magical finish

        7% chance of scoring from that situation according to xG...

        Yeah was tempted by KDB (C) but in the end I was a sheep.

      Joe Gomez has been the only real gem in my WC.

      Such value

      1. GreennRed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        He's cheap gold. 10/11 clean sheets and putting him in made the defence so solid.

      2. FantasyHero
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        He is also underrated given the other 3. He does his job in silence. Amazing at interceptions and blocking and has good pace.

      30 points but Mane goal makes that feel like the greenest of green arrows. Who cares about LiveFPL?
