Alexander-Arnold absent as Martínez starts in goal for Arsenal

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) remains absent for Liverpool as their preparations for the 2020/21 campaign continue with the Community Shield final.

The right-back has already missed two pre-season friendlies this summer and, even though Jurgen Klopp said there was a chance he could be involved at Wembley, Neco Williams (£4.0m) has been handed a third-successive start in his place.

It is difficult to be too downbeat regarding Alexander-Arnold’s fitness issues though, considering he is still set to report for England duty on Monday morning.

The rest of Liverpool’s Community Shield line-up is largely as expected with Andrew Robertson (£7.0m), Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) and Joe Gomez (£5.5m) completing the back-four.

And, of course, Mohamed Salah (£12.0m), Sadio Mané (£12.0m) and Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) comprise the front-three, although, based on Klopp’s pre-match press conference, we could see Rhian Brewster (£4.5m) feature from the bench.

Mikel Arteta may have potentially thrown Fantasy managers a bone with his team selection, handing a start to budget goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez (£4.5m).

The Spaniard has not featured in friendlies for the Gunners yet, Bernd Leno (£5.0m) starting the win at MK Dons, but, at the first chance of availability, he is back in the team following an excellent run of form during Project Restart.

If he were to hold onto the mantel of first-choice at Arsenal, that might ward off interest in William Saliba (£4.5m), who has been named among the substitutes today.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m) is stationed on the left-hand side of the Arsenal front-three, joined there by Bukayo Saka (£5.5m) and Eddie Nketiah (£6.0m).

Interestingly, after spending last season on loan in Turkey, Mohamed Elneny (yet to be priced) starts in central midfield alongside Granit Xhaka (£5.5m).

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson, van Dijk, Gomez, N Williams; Wijnaldum, Milner, Fabinho; Mané, Firmino, Salah.

Arsenal XI (3-4-3): Martínez; Tierney, Holding, D Luiz; Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Elneny, Bellerín; Aubameyang, Nketiah, Saka.

    Everton have agreed a £25m deal for Napoli's Brazil midfielder Allan.

    Anyone know what sort of a player is he?

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      The best defensive midfielder around.

    5. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Joe Allen. He is from Wales, not Brazil. Fantastic player.

    6. OLDHERMAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Italian WBA fan here.
      Allan in good form is a very good holding midfielder, possibly a leader. He can play alone in front of the two centrebacks in an hortodox 4-3-3 or coupled with another deep midfielder in formations like 4-2-3-1. Never seen in an attacking position since he's in Serie A.
      At Udinese he used to play less deep than he did at Napoli, scoring some goals and revealing his talents, but a lot of time has passed.
      Expect few attacking returns and a very consistent, efficient, strong 38-matches player.

      1. Wılly
        • 8 Years

        Why would you pick West Brom...

        Really good info though!

    7. Wılly
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Not an FPL option but would be good for Everton's defensive output.

      1. OLDHERMAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Exactly my thought. Digne, for example.
        I would pick no one as of today from my beloved Albion. Matheus Pereira is an interesting wait-and-see, but last year I would have heavily bet on Buen. Youngsters are all good to very good, but it's really early for all of them in Premier League, even if they'll have abundant game time. That's it. I can see grey clouds if we will start with Austin up front, for grateful I may be.

        1. OLDHERMAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Oh, sorry. Misread. Why did I pick West Brom? My first match live in England was at The Hawthorns, 2-2 v Sheff Wednesday, september 1984. Fell in love in 2 seconds.

      Is he injured?

      I don't think he is.

    3. Nightcrawler

    Messi joining City would be a bit rubbish for FPL :/

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I agree

    2. Rainer

      Great for the league but a killer for FPL.

      1. Sharkytect
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Why? He would probably be the most expensive playet in the game and might not do as well as everyone expects

    3. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK

      Meh, same for everyone. Play the cards that are dealt.

    4. Homer21

      Yep

    5. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      It depends what price he comes in at. If they price him like they did TAA, then it makes it a no brainer. They need to make people sacrifice to have him, so £14m really.

    6. ThisPostsOnFire
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I think it would be rubbish for City too.

      There are 2 key areas that City messed up last season, conversion of chances and turning over possession through possession.

      Messi will increase overall conversions slightly, but will also be the final nail in the coffin of City's pressing.

      1. rnrd
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        « Slightly »

        1. ThisPostsOnFire
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          The thing is, so much will go through him, that I think it will see a reduction in chances for other players as well. Messi is actually only slightly up on his xG, which is only as high as it is because so much play goes through him.

    7. Red Red Robins
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Agree, my teams sort of set, bringing 13 or 14mill Messi in would blow it open and id have to restart.

    8. Forza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      The chips might make it interesting. With City probably having at least 2 DGWs, there could be a crucial dilemma in terms of the timing of the triple captaincy. And if he's super expensive, some might go without him when bench boosting or free hitting.

  9. Oooof

    Can I get a witness to the following first draft:

        A top, top defensive midfielder, with a devastating pass. The best tackler in Europe, some say.

      Mitchell and Johnson the best bets as things stand

    So what's the verdict on which arsenal defenders are more nailed after today's game?

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Bellerin is now in my team. RWB.

      1. CaTriEm
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Just pray he doesn't get subbed off after 58 minutes like today.

    2. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      David Luiz, trained for one day and played

      1. Siva Mohan
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        legend!

      2. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        If Arteta was going to drop Luiz he'd have done it last year after the Man City game.

    3. Rust Cohle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      At this point, Luiz and KT are the only nailed defenders at Arsenal

    4. CR7 is Home
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Thnx guyz KT wud be my 2nd def after TAA

  15. DIMITRIS
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Is Nketiah an option?
    It looks like Lacazzete will be sold this summer, which leaves only Nketiah as their striker. Od course, if Auba doesn't return to his primary postion.

    1. Amey
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Just because he's cheap we're looking at him tbh.

      I'd prefer Mitro at 6 anyday

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Nketiah is a good striker...

        1. Amey
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          I haven't seen one in him.
          Watched quite a few arsenal games recently

          1. Sgt Frank Drebin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Well maybe he's no Lewandowski but for 6.0m you don't have to be. I would pay that price for a nailed Arsenal striker all day.

            1. Amey
              • 3 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              Again.
              I won't get him because he's an arsenal Striker.

              Bobby is a Pool Striker but is a bad FPL pick.

              Not clinical enough IMO. Just what I feel.
              Saka is the one I'm more interested in tbh

              1. Sgt Frank Drebin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                1 year, 5 months ago

                If Firmino was 6.0m he would be a good FPL pick imho. It's the price that matters.

                1. Goonsquad245
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  1 year, 5 months ago

                  If firmino was 8m, or even 8.5 he’d be interesting IMO.

                  1. Sgt Frank Drebin
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    1 year, 5 months ago

                    Before the price realeases I was actually thinking about starting the season with him. But never did I think he will be 9.5m... He just can't continue to underperform so massively!

                2. Firminoooo
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                  Thank you lads.

                    Love you as a player Bobby.
                    I'm very Angry at LVG for letting you go to Pool 🙂

    2. CaTriEm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      It's an odd one. Arteta clearly wants Auba at LW. But if we sell Laca, we only have Nketiah, who is good, but not good enough I fear. Martinelli out til January. I'd like to think we'd buy a replacement if we sold Laca.. I'd like to.

  16. Sgt Frank Drebin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Thoughts on Saka? I guess we can't say any Arsenal forward is nailed apart from Aubameyang? Saka and Nketiah could be a great value if they were nailed on...

      13 - Since the start of last season, only Kevin De Bruyne (22) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (15) have more assists in all competitions among Premier League players than Arsenal's Bukayo Saka. Future. #ARSLIV

    3. Oooof
      • 6 Years

      I would kick off the season with him - definitely a wait and see in my opinion.

      1. Oooof
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Wouldn’t

        1. Amey
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          If we want him, starting is the Time to jump IMO.
          Look at those 2 fixtures

          1. Oooof
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Will he play both? If you think so then yeah why not.

            1. Amey
              • 3 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              Hmm
              He's a bonafide punt then for 2 gw's 😀

    4. Rust Cohle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Depending on the rest of your team (especially bench), Saka might be a decent punt at that price. Pepe is currently quarantined. Based on the importance that Arteta places on training, I could see him starting Saka over Pepe for the Fulham match and maybe both of the first two matches.

      1. CaTriEm
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I was under the impression that Pepe missed today's game because his wife went into labour, not quarantine.

        1. Rust Cohle
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Broadcast said quarantine. Idk.

      2. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        That's it - I totally forgot Pepe exists. Well in this case I guess there is no chance Saka is nailed - although I think he is better player than the Ivorian.

        1. KujaliaFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          When Pepe plays, will Saka be dropped, or will Nketiah give way to Pierre upfront?

    5. Sloths
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      He looked great 1st half but looked v tired second. 59 minute player risk ......but if improves his stamina could be gold.....

    Salah ➡️ Bruno for GW2 is on!

    1. Cok3y5murf

      I told you that weeks ago 🙂

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I was in two minds before but he doesn't look sharp yet and it's continued since restart.

        1. Cok3y5murf
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          I'm personally more interested in Martial than Bruno though.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Martial will be on my bench ready for GW2.

            I think the fixtures between GW2-5 (CRY, bha TOT new) warrant a double up on United attack.

          2. Amey

            Me too
            But salah has to go after GW 1 so I'm choosing Bruno first

        I think I will be joining you. Gotta be aggressive first few week and Chelsea + Arsenal helps make the decision easier.

        1. Amey
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          For sure ...
          We won't © him till GW 6 i guess. so can take the risk (don't even think it as a risk tbh)

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Yup agreed.

            Could cap him against Villa in GW4 but KDB/Raz vs Leeds also equally good.

            1. Amey
              • 3 Years

    Hoping Messi goes to Juventus.

    If Ronaldo and Messi link-up I'm moving to Turin.

    1. ThisPostsOnFire
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      That would be incredible, however Juventus are having to be incredibly creative in an effort to get moves done this season (see the arthur/pjanic deal with Barca). Won't happen unfortunately. Would have been my preference too.

    2. KAALI_DAAL

      I will actually start following Juventus, and whatever league they play in.

    Will you forgive COVID19 for ruining 2020 if Messi comes to PL?

    What a delight he would be a watch when Egan tackles him and makes him look like a fool, when TAA pushes him around, takes the ball and produces a counter attack, or when Pope frustrates him with a million saves, forcing Pep to sub Messi for Jesus.

    1. G B
      • 10 Years

      Have you ever watched Messi play before?

      Not a messi fan by any count but trent could be on his back as messi runs rounds around him. They would probably need a last ditch vvd tackle..
      Hoping to see him in PL, though he may get a bit of physical shock playing in England

    TAA Egan KWP, 2 x 4
    Auba Salah Son Pereira Soucek

    0 itb.

    Werner can become Martial, or Auba and Ings can become KDB Martial.

    1. Dichio24
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Egan worth 5,0? Would rather have 2 more 4,5s. Then you could rotate the likes of KWP, Justin, Vinagre, Taylor, Saliba, Dallas etc. Other than that I like your team. Have a very similar team and my plan is to bring Rashford in for Salah GW2, and then KDB for Auba GW3

  23. ThisPostsOnFire

    What's the deal with all these Salah/Auba to Fernandes comments? Where does that extra 1.5 go then, surely at least one or two -4s will come into play?

    1. Cok3y5murf
      • 5 Years

      Well, you can spend the 1.5 the following week. I don't mind a -4 at all though.

      Money in the bank is always great for flexibility.

      Having 0.0m is probably the worst because then you're stuck to make transfers if you wish to.

    A Ryan KWP
    B McCarthy Lamptey

      I'm on A right now looks the most nailed pair and KWP is fairly attacking. Not to keen about doubling up on these defences.

    Just how terrible would it be to WC in GW2?

    I have my eyes on this GW2+ team (especially the front 6)

    McCarthy (Steer)

    TAA, Justin, Taylor Vinagre (Mitchell)

    De Bruyne, Fernandes, Pulisic (Stephens, Anguissa)

    Werner, Ings/Jimi, Martial
