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.

    At what point do we start worrying that Liverpool actually just haven’t looked very good for ages. Are they trying yet?

    1. Fudgy

      Don't worry. Act on it early and reap the rewards.

      I'm wondering about starting without any of them. They just arent up to their own standard

      1. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        The VAR standard

        1. Greasy Grealish Gang
          • 1 Year

          Yes, I'm sure that explains the 18 point gap last season.

      0-1 Leeds 65th minute.

      i thought it was 'didnt care cause won already' syndrome, looking now like bad form

      This Liverpool side is not assembled to be possession based style side, imo. OK, crosses from fullbacks are effective for Liverpool, but there is big lack of other kinds of creativity, other ways to find the final pass, the assist. Also, Firimino is such an important player for Liverpool, and if he plays poor the entire side looks bad in attack. Henderson out of the midfield three just adds to the problems.

        Main reason why they're going for Alcantara

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Seems to me Alcantara won't be brought in until one or two leave the club.

      We ?

        Yes?

        Oui

    7. The Casual One
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Teams not replenishing. This team has basically been the same for 3 seasons now, they need to refresh it

    8. just a man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Inclined to agree. Even if they pull out results playing like this, not looking good fantasy prospects atm.

      Psychological hard to reach same heights after reaching ultimate goal last season. Plus not only that won Euro Cup year before. Whats left?

      1. just a man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Fans def want to take that 19 trophies to 21 and overtake Manu. So that should be the goal. Obviously really tough in practice to win back-to-back leagues.

  2. Shark Team

    I told you first that less hair means less goals for Salah don't forget me!

    1. FALSE PROFIT

      Salah and Samson the same (smile)

      Hair acts as our aerials to the cosmos. That's why bald men are uptight.

      Should grow back in about 2 to 3 weeks, so get him in then?

      1. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Yes I think the length will be good for the Villa game

        1. tiger
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          I hope FFS add length of hair to the scouting data...could be vital!

          1. Shark Team
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            I agree with you but it all depends on whether his barber is an FPL manager!

    I have seen enough to know I won't be doubling up on Pool defence.

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Doherty?

      1. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Not with his move. A wait and see there I think

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years

      Yup same!

      1. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        I have been impressed with Robbo though. I might save the half mil

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Will do if Trent looks like missing the first game

    3. Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Absolutely no chance and never was doing

      1. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        I thought about it but after lockdown they slipped.

    4. Limbo

      Easy decision or made easier being blue 😉

        Ha Ha

    5. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I imagine those with triple defence are ripping their teams up.

      1. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Should imagine so

    6. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years

      Based on this game? How many games was your previous assessment based on?

      1. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        The majority of games after lockdown. Not so much the goals but performances. The friendlies were not any better either.

  4. Arctic monkeys
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Robbo and Tierney looking a better choice than TAA and Davies

    Considering Trent not having any preseson games

    1. The Mighty Hippo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      That's quite a good option.

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I'm binning Trent. Everyone is terrified of not owning him but it's not like you can't get him in later. No preseason and mediocre opening fixtures. Much prefer Robbo and Davies/Dier to TAA and a 4.5 def.

      1. TheBrazilianRonaldo
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Just think Liverpool have a tough start and they did get stuffed by city not so long ago. Defence looks prone. I didn’t have TAA and Z on forum convinced me on data, but gut says no and I’ll wait it out

      2. Pep bites Kun
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Bravo, but team shape afterwards and ability to reinstate?

    3. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      This

  5. Jellyfish
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Very tempted to stick Tierney in my team

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Thinking same. Had been put off with fixtures but Liverpool week 3 perhaps not so bad!

  6. Differentiator
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Don't bother with Mitrovic*

    *Based on prior years' experience, he'll frustrate you into a coma

        Did great for me. Will never forget...

      • Limbo

        1 month, 22 days ago

        I had him for a pair of back to back home braces. Was joyous.

        Just because everyone who jumped on the bandwagon late were punished, he was great to start the season and theres no better striker at 6m

        1. beric
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          What about Eddie N?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years

            If he starts sure

      • Jay Jay Okocha
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        His xG numbers were immense.

      • yousunkmybattleship
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Didn’t he start really well last time?

        I may be having selective memory

      • Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        134 points two seasons ago and started off strong. I'm very happy to start with him considering the fixtures and then pivot if someone emerges with good form.

    2. Right In The Stanchion
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Arsenal are back lads. 50/1 for the league...

        1. badgerboy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Their year.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          If you say so

          1. Right In The Stanchion

              I do x

          LEE, che, ARS. Do we really need a Liverpool defender for the first three?

          1. Differentiator
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            TAA. Can get points any game. Essential.

            1. I Member
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 22 days ago

              Not sure if serious.

              1. Differentiator
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 22 days ago

                Very srs.

                1. I Member
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 22 days ago

                  How can someone who's missed all of preseason with injury be essential for GW1?

          2. Limbo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            It’s not ‘just’ clean sheets.

            Points. Points. Points.

            4th best in the game last season - still a bargain at £7.5m

            1. I Member
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 22 days ago

              Not starting with him doesn't mean you're not going to own him for most of the season. Can't even be sure if he plays GW1 at this rate.

              1. Limbo
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 22 days ago

                I’m building the backbone of my team around him, Auba, Werner and in add GW2&3 Bruno & KDB. Made that call and can’t see a reason to change. Too much faff. Also what if he starts and gets Baps GW1 - instant regression.

            2. beric
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 22 days ago

              Yeah there's no real sense in going without him at that price, if he's fit to play

          3. 16ShimiC16
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            Certainly not, I can see them conceding in all 3, money can be spread elsewhere too

        4. UnluckyXI
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Is David luiz a right winger now?

          1. Marvin the Great
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            He probably thinks he is.

        5. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Saka looking a good option at 5.5

          1. JohnnyRev7
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            Very good first half.

          2. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 22 days ago

            I wonder if he's won the spot over Pepe. Probably not

            1. BNMC
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 22 days ago

              They play on different flanks

              1. beric
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 22 days ago

                Willian is on the right too isn't he? Or is he more versatile?

              2. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 22 days ago

                Both playing on the right...

              3. UnluckyXI
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 22 days ago

                Right now saka is playing on the right, Pepe is a right winger I believe

          3. ElliotJHP
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            Saka will play, where is the question. LM or RM in a 3-4-3 or RW or LW in this system. He's in for me

        6. Young Lingard
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Whilst I saw absolute no value in the England fixtures
          They will be key to see what stages Trent and Kane are. Their clubs would absolutely limit their minutes or rule them out at the first chance if they felt they were not fit enough to play contributing minutes
          So my eyes on that but I had Robertson in mind already as my team needs money more spread around

        7. beric
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Saka, Nketiah and Auba too much or not enough Arsenal?

          1. The Pesci challenge
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            Too much with the fixtures

        8. HurriKane

          Odd watching Salah without Afro

            Harder to spot on my SD stream for sure

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            Delilah cut Samson's hair and Samson lost all his strength. Salah gets his hair cut and loses all his strengths and becomes anonymous...

            Moral of the story: Don't get your haircut. Wear a tinfoil hat. FPL and FFS are watching. Seriously.

              looks great in this formation, I guess he's not as great in a back 4 though?

          Saka has taken a corner and a free kick in an attacking position already.

          Was in my team but not locked, that's changing quickly

            Does it mean Aurier is gunna go?

            1. badgerboy

              1 month, 22 days ago

              Dunno. Was going to go with TAA, Doherty, Aurier, 4.5m, 4m in defence. Put a spanner in the works.

              1. beric

                I cant see past TAA and all 4.5s with maybe a 4.

                Cant find value for 4.5 or less outside of defence

                1. badgerboy

                  Doherty at 6m felt underpriced, but the extra 1.5m you're using further up the field could be handy.

            2. Super Saints

            Bellerin at 5.0 > any other Arsenal defender

            1. Super Saints
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 22 days ago

              Bellerin looks good until injured

              Tierney looks a good call. Saliba will be playing soon too if they play a back 3

            Best asset's from this game

            Auba Saka Tierney

            Robertson Mane VVD

            1. Shark Team
              • 3 Years

              Tierney is very pricey my friend

              1. Super Saints
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 22 days ago

                There's a reason for that, very attacking, shots, crosses etc

                1. UnluckyXI
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 22 days ago

                  He's doing a lot of overlapping with AMN so could be a good option when aubameyang cuts in

              2. Qaiss
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 22 days ago

                Because it’s likely he will be a LWB most of the time once we sign Magalhaes

            Ayew or Mitrovic?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 22 days ago

              Thinking mitrovic myself, ayew didnt exactly set the league on fire last year and he played most the time

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years

              Nketiah

            3. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 22 days ago

              Ayew. Looked good for his brace of goals today (even if it was Charlton)

              Was considering Mitrovic myself but always liable to get a yellow/red

          5. Free Hat

            Whats up with Pepe, Willian?

            Injured, quaraintaine or...

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years

              Willian probably hasn't had enough time to train with Arteta philosophy, he will be in soon enough

            Liverpool are still in a strong position to finish in the top 4.

            Ooft 7-1 Saints v Swansea. Lot of respect for Ralph picking a starting XI and a back up XI, if only all managers were as generous.

            Liverpool's defence looking a pretty good attacking force.

                I am. Was in my team even before today so now I'm even more confident about it. Think he starts the season with Willian taking a bit of time to get up to speed and his versatility means he can play in a number of positions. Expecting him to get plenty of minutes this season.

                  Exactly my thoughts Willian fitness, plus Saka seems like first sub at worst.

                Moving to starting very impressed by Arsenal proving FA cup no fluke. Plus Saka would be decent even if was given 30 mins from bench now and again.
