Firmino return forces Jota onto Liverpool bench for Arsenal trip

Diogo Jota (£6.7m) is among the Liverpool substitutes for Saturday’s Gameweek 30 trip to Arsenal.

After the midfielder impressed on international duty following a goal in Gameweek 28, over 200,000 Fantasy Premier League managers signed him for the season run-in.

However, Roberto Firmino (£9.0m) has frustrated Jota’s 6.4% ownership by making his first start since returning from injury.

The Brazilian missed each of Liverpool’s least two league outings but was declared fit and available by Jurgen Klopp in his Friday press conference.

The rest of the Reds’ starting line-up provides fewer shocks, with Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) and Sadio Mané (£11.8m) either side of Firmino.

Andrew Robertson (£7.1m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) are the full-backs with Nathaniel Phillips (£4.0m) paired with Ozan Kabak (£5.0m) for a fourth Premier League start from the last five.

Meanwhile, Bukayo Saka (£5.2m) and Emile Smith Rowe (£4.2m) have not passed their fitness races for Gameweek 30, left out of the Arsenal squad today.

Martin Ødegaard (£6.0m) is able to hang onto the number 10 role at the Emirates Stadium while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.4m) and Nicolas Pépé (£7.6m) provide the width for Alexandre Lacazette (£8.2m) up-front.

Mikel Arteta continues to shake things up at the back. He has now named a different centre-back duo in eight of Arsenal’s last nine Premier League matches.

Rob Holding (£4.2m) and Gabriel (£4.9m) get the nod today with Kieran Tierney (£5.3m) and Calum Chambers (£4.5m) at left and right-back respectively.

Gameweek 30 Line-ups

Arsenal XI: Leno; Tierney, Gabriel, Holding, Chambers; Partey, Ceballos; Aubameyang, Ødegaard, Pépé; Lacazette.

Liverpool XI: Alisson; Robertson, Kabak, N Phillips, Alexander-Arnold; Fabinho, Thiago, Milner; Mané, Firmino, Salah.

Gameweek 30 so far…

Pep Guardiola was arguably the key man in Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Leicester as he rang the changes.

Ilkay Gündogan (£6.1m), John Stones (£5.3m) and João Cancelo (£6.1m) were all benched for Gameweek 30 and, thankfully for their owners, none of them took to the pitch for one-point cameos.

Raheem Sterling (£11.4m) emerged to get a second-half assist while Phil Foden (£6.1m) replaced Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) in the 88th minute and was unable to involve himself in the goals.

Ruben Dias (£6.1m) kept up his run of starts, making his eighth in a row and capitalising on Manchester City’s 17th clean sheet of the campaign.

Benjamin Mendy (£5.9m) got his second goal of the season while Gabriel Jesus (£9.2m) now has four in his last four starts.

Meanwhile, this match was also notable for the return of James Maddison (£7.1m) coming on as a 72nd-minute substitute for Marc Albrighton (£5.2m).

    With Firmino in the team, where Jota plays?

      Right now, he doesn't.

    2. mdm

      Normally on the bench

      Well all I can say is between weeks 4 and 10 when Jota played quite a bit, so did Firmino .. I believe he’ll get quite a bit of gametime from now tbh..

      Right wing or striker.

    That Chelsea result just laughs in the face of anyone who thinks they can predict sporting outcomes. I love how it humbles those that think this game is all skill

    1. Whazza

      Don't think anyone believes is all skill, games involve luck in general

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Every success in life involved some form of luck

      But if you winning then it takes skill to manage the team mixed with a little luck

      1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        By winning I mean top

        Not top 1k or 10k which most think is “winning”

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 11 days ago

          More luck higher up you are. Assuming you play the game week in and week out and do a modicum of research.

      Not all sports are as unpredictable as football. Tennis, for example, is pretty predictable

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        One on ones yes i agree

    4. Tango74
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Skill and knowledge is needed. Why pick Kane capt over konsa for example

        1. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Konsa might outscore him. I get your point and most players will pick viable options but it can mean nothing it your lucks out

          1. Tango74
              1 month, 11 days ago

              U right , i get excited when my punt starts lol

          This is aimed at those that are a bit too far up their own backsides about this game

            As an exceptionally skilled and trained FPL athlete it's very offensive to me that you say luck plays a part in this game

        3. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years

          By the way i brought in Mendy for a hit and not the City one lol

          Rival wrapped up mini league today. Getting Pereiras 21 points off the bench! Classic, have to laugh

          I brought in Azpi this week. That went well.

            Good move in a predictable environment

          I always thought it was skill when your team scores big and (bad) luck when they blank.

        7. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          In all honest TT should be blamed for bringing Silva back who caused the problems. Why change what was working?

        8. FPL_Motty
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Yeah sometimes such small changes in luck make big differences. For example anyone going triple Brighton def last week, vs triple Chelsea def this week. On paper there's really nothing in it, but the pts difference is huge

        9. Demba Demba
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Certainly a large element of luck, like when I got stones for dbl game week and he scored a brace but not everyone’s teams can be great all the time can they, people choose the players they think will be good for that week and near future then say their a genius if they do well but moaning when your players blank or are rotated and all of a sudden it’s all luck

      • estheblessed

        Did Rapha get a bonus point in the end?

        Every little helps...

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Sneaked one - makes up for the cs point lost I guess. 12 points as captain certainly feels much better. It could match a Kane goal yet.

          1. PompeyUpNorth!
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Nice... that’ll do I guess

          2. estheblessed
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Yea I switched from Kane. On another day Rapha gets another assist and may be a goal. I am chasing by 50pts so have to start taking a few risks.

        1. Bushwhacker

          Mendy. Chelsea first team will be back.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Probably Ederson

        3. Carefree Crew
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Thought arsenal hasn't kept a clean sheet in 7.
          Mendy with the fixtures.
          Lloris with the DGW.

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            City have a better fixture run than Chelsea - all you need is someone to stand in for Ederson in 33.

        4. Eh, just one more thing ...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Salah in current form has absolutely no right to play. Jota must be fuming.

              1. Bushwhacker
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 11 days ago

                You must not be watching games. Besides Jota is being rested for Real.

                  Dear lord he's so average. Terrible player.

                    Top goalscorer in the league is a terrible player according to MUCHENTUCHEL. You heard it here folks

                    1. Lethargio Alcantara
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      1 month, 11 days ago

                      How long have you been watching football? The game isn't just about goals and he's doing exactly nothing for the team. He's not even average when it comes to team play.

                    he wants to move on and we want to cash in before he's getting too old. He is long past his prime already.

                  Scored 3 on 2 games.over IB. Its a puzzle as to why he's benched today

                  1. JONALDINHO
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 11 days ago

                    It’s not that difficult to understand. He played the last 2 games and the game against Madrid is far more important.

                3. El Presidente
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year

                  Yes, its exactly that, he played really well for Portugal also...

                  1. Bushwhacker
                    • 1 Year
                    1 month, 11 days ago

                    So he’s knackered and they have an important game midweek. Hence the rest.

                • 9 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Wants his best 11 fit for Real. Jota was injured v Mitjyland, he doesn't want the opposite affect for such a big game.

              5. Carefree Crew
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Age of Salah, Mane, Firmino, Henderson & VvD is potentially the reason why they would consider selling Salah.
                That's one expensive rebuild to replace if they don't sell any of them.

                1. Bushwhacker
                  • 1 Year

                  Klopp will hold them through his contract. Lot of youngsters coming through.

              Benching Jota should be a crime against humanity
              Especially humans that own him

                      Could be a bad one.

                    Ugh... Tierney injured now. It's just unbelievable...

                      Injury prone sadly

                        1 month, 11 days ago

                        That wasn't really his fault. Just an awkward challenge. I think he's done his knee. This could be a bad one.

                      Pool of players to bring on wildcard reduces by the minute. Coady nailed in my team now.

                        1 month, 11 days ago

                        Yep, Tierney joins Iheanacho, Jota and Chelsea defenders to be crossed off the list.

                          Well this is awkward, I wced early to get on the train early, and looks like the train has derailed and I'm screwed. Tierney injury is so frustrating, primed for those sweet fixtures

                      Unlike Che defs he won't get minus pts from goals conceded.

                    Sold Dias, played Cancelo, have Tierney

                    • 4 Years

                    Currently have Gundo, Stones and Cancelo.

                    Keep any of all or them when activating WC?

                      I have the same 3. I'm gonna wait for the Champions league line up. If any of them play limited minutes in that, they may be worth keeping for the Leeds game.

                        Thinking the same. Not likely to keep all 3, but also can't decide whether to bring in KDB on WC.

                      I got rid a few weeks back. I've got Dias and Gundo now. It was doing me head in.

                    Well i was scouting Tierney as my next transfer. i guess i need a new target.

                        Me too, really struggling with defenders on a WC

                          3 assists for Scotland to what could be a bad injury
                          Cruel game

                              1 month, 11 days ago

                              A moped is sufficient,Pool have scored 3 times in 9 PL games

                          1 month, 11 days ago

                          A quality footballer. Not a good FPL pick though in that Arsenal defence.

                          TAA

                        • 5 Years
                        1 month, 11 days ago

                        Well that’s the europa league over sadly is Tierney is out for a while..

                        1. Scots Gooner

                          1 month, 11 days ago

                          Was a pretty dumb decision to sell Kolasinac without signing a replacement and therefore run Tierney into the ground.

                          1. Qaiss

                            Yeah agree. We’ll probably have to play a back 3 and put Saka lwb or something

                        I suppose TAA might be the transfer of the week now. Have Watkins just to cover that eventuality 🙂

                        So many new questions already raised prior to WC GW 31:
                        - Is the Chelsea defensive double up still worth it?
                        - Is Mendy still the best set and forget for the season?
                        - Is Iheanacho nailed now with Maddison back?
                        - Is Jota nailed with Firmino back?
                        - How many City players should we keep on WC?

                          1 month, 11 days ago

                          Maybe
                          No - Ederson if you can cover 33
                          Yes probably until we get Barnes
                          No
                          One or maybe two if you can cover Stones benchings

                          All no and 2

                        3. GreennRed

                          1 month, 11 days ago

                          Looking to wait another GW now. 2 more CL and EL legs over could make a few more players nailed on without rotation risk.

                          To be honest it’s why I’m kind of pleased I don’t have the WC to deal with

                            I like the hassle tbh. It means more diversity and less identical teams

                              Same. Gonna be good fun rather than plug and play template.

                                Unless a 3rd premium wakes up I sense it's all going to get very samey very quickly. Mo is the only point of difference there unless people really are going to go Vardy. It's not as if there are options in the slightly sub premium bracket either.

                                  It's the lack of striker options. I think there's plenty of alternatives everywhere else.

                                    Swap out double City defence for double Chelsea add a budget mid in favour of Gundo and I suspect we're back to where we started pretty much.

                                    TAA over Cresswell and Maddison over Mount deciding things - that sort of order of things

                          Mendy (nailed. probably) and Rudiger (cheap and benchable) are still good

                          I will be having both Ihenacho and Maddison on WC this week

                          No

                          I will be having 0

                              Very similar to my current thinking. Also very tempted by Maddi/Ihea but considering how well Perez has been playing, worried they might share minutes

                            Forgot your questions!

                            Yes.

                            Himself, Ederson or Martinez.

                            No.

                            No.

                            None unless you want Ederson. Rotation too risky until they finish in Champions League.

                          Just woke up to the Chelsea score. 5 goals past them wtf.

                            Red card then fell apart to a WBA side that smelled blood.

                          Made a late transfer of Dunk -> Alonso to not waste the FT heading into a WC. Feel rather stupid now with Dias's 6 points staring at me from the bench

                            Not a stupid decision. Just a bad outcome.

                            Better than Stones 0 in my team with Veltman coming on.
                            And I saved FT

                            I got in Azpi which was worse but had Dias on bench boost.

                            Same here, except took -4 so net 7 loss at present ..... hopefully get all the mistakes made this season. Other move was to bring in Bruno for Gundogan so hopefully not a sign of things to come
