Salah on the bench as Raphinha misses Leeds’ meeting with Liverpool

A trio of key Fantasy Premier League assets have missed out on the starting line-ups of Leeds’ Double Gameweek 32 meeting with Liverpool.

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) is on the bench as for the first time since Double Gameweek 19 after a string of 12 successive Premier League starts.

Diogo Jota (£7.0m) is on the right-hand side of Liverpool’s front-three this evening, joined there by Roberto Firmino (£9.0m) and Sadio Mané (£11.7m).

Recent newcomer to the Fantasy radar Nathaniel Phillips (£4.1m) misses out with a hamstring injury tonight, drawing Fabinho (£5.4m) back into a centre-back role alongside Ozan Kabak (£5.0m).

Consequently, James Milner (£5.3m), Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.3m) and Thiago Alcantara (£5.5m) are the midfield trio for Liverpool tonight.

Raphinha (£5.5m) is also out of the matchday squad for Leeds following the injury he picked up against Manchester City.

Jack Harrison (£5.4m) returns for the Whites after missing the trip to the Etihad Stadium due to being ineligible.

Liam Cooper (£4.3m) is absent tonight through suspension so Pascal Struijk (£4.0m) returns to the side at centre-back with Diego Llorente (£4.4m).

Double Gameweek 32 Line-ups

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Alioski, Llorente, Struijk, Ayling; K Phillips; Costa, Roberts, Dallas, Harrison; Bamford.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson, Kabak, Fabinho, Alexander-Arnold; Thiago, Wijnaldum, Milner; Mané, Firmino, Jota.

    Miracle if Liverpool keep a CS here!

      Miracle if Leeds don't concede again as well.

    Getting Jota last week seems to be A mistake

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Yes

      I never get anything from him

      Gor him just before his injury last time.

      All about timing

        Think he’ll start againt Newcastle?

        1. Old Bull

          For me he’s one of those players who will always blow hot or cold, doesn’t matter what team he happens to be in. As such I feel he’s overpriced because it’s based on him playing for Liverpool rather than Wolves.

  4. Eh, just one more thing ...

    Nicely wasted Salah

  7. KAPTAIN KANE

    Need a dodgy Salah pen

    Jota 3 points banked

      Fantastic

    Was getting Jota and Trent but could only get 1 this week so went Jota. Another tiny decision that ends up costing me 10 pts

    1. fusen
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I'd put Trent as the most important Liverpool player to own currently. Then probably just Salah over Jota, both those two are almost even.

      1. JONALDINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah but I thought this would’ve been a goal fest. Shocked Liverpool still have a clean sheet and that they didn’t score more

    2. JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      If I had got Trent I wouldn’t have started Dawson too!

    Very poor game by Jota.

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Played great ; couldn't finish.

      1. Royal5

        Great? Really?
