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.

Double Gameweek 32 so far…

    Painful game week .... painfully dragged out ...

      My benchboost so far is Dawson and Phillips. Bring on the ESL.

    TAA still on for the 3bps. Nice.

    Salah essential?

    Love to see that leeds goal.

    As a Liverpool fan I’m delighted Leeds scored. Proving to people how much of a farce this super league is. We could lose all our remaining games and it won’t make a difference. Sad sad times

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years

      It will make a difference. CL still means money

      1. Chenku╰☆╮

        3 months, 17 days ago

        No it wont. If it continues without the top clubs CL will be worth less then championship. more like south American football.

      There's no Liverpool to be a fan of anymore. The club you supported died last night

  9. Daniel Jebbison

    Leeds deserve place in ESL as well. To be part of those 5 rotating teams. They bring so much joy to the football fans

    Wonder if Klopp is regretting not playing his top scorer from the start now ? Seemed such a bizarre decision.

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      And he plays Firminho all the time. Mr. I can't score 10 goals

    2. UNDERWORLD7
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Klopp MADE bizarre a thing

  11. DycheDycheBaby

    Trent gets points and Liverpool lose. What's not to like people? Come on!!

    BIgGeSt tEaMs iN tHe WoRlD cant defeat Leeds Fulham Getafe Atalanta Everton etc. Only this week results

  13. Hazz

    This would be another great result for Chelsea. We have to capitalise on it vs. Brighton.

    .. Ah FFS it doesn't matter anyway -_-

    Philips Bruno to TAA Greenwood?

    1. Spg76
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Greenwood is a good differential. I just think he could score 5 in a game and he might not start the next game. United have options.

  15. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 17 days ago

    Salah winner, TAA assist or Bam Bam scoring, what's more likely to happen?

    1. UNDERWORLD7
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      neither

  16. Purse83

    Evening guys

    I’m sure someone has likely asked this but does anyone know what the league table looks like without the ‘Big 6’?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      It's all academic

  17. DropkickMurphys

      Well done Ox - 6th Meslier save. Lol

      Thiago. What a waste of money. He offers nothing to this Liverpool team other than give free kicks away!

      1. Free Hat
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Very true. Streetwise punk more like it.

    • djman102

      Another smash and grab from Dallas would be most appreciated now...

    • Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Mark didn't get Salah. He knew it Klopp would bench him. That guy is all over the place.

      Next, President of operations for ESL FF?

    • AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Leeds to level with ESL never winners Arsenal?

    • Street Friend
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Got 2FT and 3.5ITB.

      Phillips to Trent?

      Mendy Forster
      Rudiger Coady Saiss holding Phillips
      Jota Salah Bruno son lingard
      Kane nacho vydra.

      Losing cs at the end of the games is the new normal for me

      Gw31 - Areola 90+4
      Gw32 - Areola 90+7, Taa 87'

      1. Jebiga
        • 9 Years

          Atleast wont get my hopes up

    • Jebiga
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Salah is such a shete of player :/

    • fusen
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Salah should have got a red card then

      1. Jebiga
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        What a diving muppet

    • Gazwaz80
      • 1 Year

      If there is any justice then Allison deserves the BPS for a couple of great saves.

    • It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Liverpool don’t care about those CL spots anyway

    • JBG
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Good thing Klopp rested Salah for that important Cup game coming up this week... Oh wait.

      Anyone considering stopping supporting your club if they join the super league?

        I’m a Hereford fan so not much chance of it happening tbh
