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…

    NEW: Premier League to host meeting with 14 clubs tomorrow morning. Clubs involved in proposed European Super League are not included. Meeting chaired by Richard Masters online #SSN

      Why not wait with the announcement after the season?

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Because they wanted to screw over UEFA the day before the new CL format was announced as they hate it because it means sharing the cash.

    2. GROBARI

        Imagine you cant win vs Fulham Everton or Leeds and you think you are "one of a greatest clubs ever" and you dont want to include in a pl host meeting. Ban them!

    3. Eh, just one more thing ...

      So if the six clubs are kicked out the league prior to end of this season .... give everyone a free wildcard and carry on till end of season ....

      1. GROBARI
          1 month, 29 days ago

          That will happen

        What a dull FPL game

        News of Liverpool’s resurgence has been very much exaggerated

      3. Goat
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Will Trent keep his 3 baps?

        1. Jebiga
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Yes in last season

          1. Goat
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            What about this season

            1. Eh, just one more thing ...
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              TAA holding the 3 bonus at moment (31) ... Llorente on 2 (29) ..... so I would hope so.

      4. Royal5
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Salah did that deliberately

        1. Daniel Jebbison
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          What did he do?

          1. Royal5
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Planted his foot on Llorente

        2. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Was trying to turn my 9 points from 6 players into 6 points from 6

        3. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Yes I think he did. Not sure why, he’s a nice bloke.

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            1 month, 29 days ago

            this, odd. Frustrated maybe.

      5. Jebiga
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Pool doesn't deserve title in next 30 years for sure

        1. Goat
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Ok

      6. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        This result doesn't even matter anymore for Liverpool

      7. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Went into that game with 6 players.

        Came out with 9 points

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Your moaning is getting really annoying.

          You have TAA getting you 8 points, so true total is 11.

          You are ranked 8k or so. A drop from 2k or so? Yes, but you took a -12 and played players who were doubts/had tough opposition on a bench boost.

          You only have yourself to blame.

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Sorry, not 11, 12*

          2. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Sorry I’m actually laughing not moaning with this post.
            It’s gone past moaning - the Trent bonus is crazy really, blessing indeed

            Glad Im not the only one.
            Season over comments at a 8k rank.. .

            Then my season was over a long time ago 😀

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              I just want to finish strong not poor, regardless of rank

              1. Free Hat
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                You cant expect 70-80 points every week.
                Most people around here would be thrilled with your rank. Congrats on that.

                But talking about awful weeks, luck, season over comments lots of the time at your rank bothers me tbh!
                But hope you can finish strongly...

                1. KAPTAIN KANE
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  Sorry in that case, I guess we tend to focus on the bad bits and be quite passive on positive weeks.
                  If it’s any consolation I’m a good moaner but bad gloater lol

        2. FantasyHero
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          1 month, 29 days ago

          I dont understand why ppl here are complaining about you beating your lucky. No matter the rank everyone wants to keep doing better. That's part of the game.

          You have the right to be down about your players not doing well in a given week and also be happy about your picks performing well.
          You were under 1k rank and dropped ofc that's gotta feel bad.
          Just cause I'm at a lower rank and I can't tell you to stop feeling how you are feeling.

          Anyhow just my 2 cents.

      8. Free Hat
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Not even mad as Trent clean sheet. Well deserved Leeds. What a 2nd half performance.

      9. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        What's going on?

        Even Leeds games not that entertaining anymore.

        I'm sorry for Salah supporters but he's so filthy player talented to diving.

        Foden is world class for him. Doesn't falling and diving even if he must...

        1. Goat
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Shut up.

        Mendy Forster
        Rudiger Coady Saiss holding Phillips
        Jota Salah Bruno son lingard

          As a toffee, I have been under the cosh with my neighbours since the mid 80's. I am sooo glad I am not a Pool supporter now!

          1. Goat
            • 3 Years

            40 years of hurt until today. Enjoy it.

              Tongue in cheek really. It is a sad day for all of us!

            I support Liverpool. Also since the mid 80’s. You must know we don’t want this.

              • 7 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              I know you don't bud. a big shame and believe it or not, Pool is my 2nd choice team. Unusual yes?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          27pts off top 10k doable?

          Problem is I only have Mendy/Forster?, Kane? and Nacho left! Probably going to fly down the ranks in the coming days

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Not this week.

            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Rafa mate we must be on same score! 27 off 10k for me too!

            Kane (C), Son, Rudiger, Iheanacho and Mendy (Forster) to go

            1. RAFA THE GAFFA
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              2070? You’ll finish higher this GW then unless Rudiger and Son are benched haha

              1. Don Kloppeone
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                Yeh 2070!

                Have you got chips left? That’s my issue - now for me it’s down to getting decisions right!

                1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  Bench boost mate. You?
                  2FTs this week and 0.1itb but not sure where to move, what you reckon? And how you shaping up this week?

                  Mendy
                  TAA. Shaw. Coady. Rudiger
                  Salah. Bruno. Jota. Lingard
                  DCL. Iheanacho
                  (Forster, Holding, Kane*, Gundog*)

                  1. Don Kloppeone

                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    No chips left.

                    1FT and 1.7itb
                    Mendy
                    TAA, Rudiger, Shaw, Holding, Masuaku
                    Salah, Jota, Bruno, Lingard
                    Iheanacho
                    (Forster) (Davis, Kane, Son)

                    You’re not in a dissimilar position to me team wise. Personally I’m considering moving for one of Greenwood, Maddison or Havertz but unsure!

                    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      1 month, 29 days ago

                      Yeah. Well I need to use an FT or burn it. What do you think of dropping one of Jota, Bruno or Salah then?

                      1. Don Kloppeone
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 3 Years
                        1 month, 29 days ago

                        I’m seriously considering dropping Bruno for Greenwood but sure to backfire!

                        I’ve also got the advantage of Son who I could drop for Maddison or Havertz

                        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          1 month, 28 days ago

                          I probably wouldn’t do that. Wish I had done Bruno >> Son this week even after not returning on Friday. Wednesday is going to be a hard watch. Then SHU after the 33 blank.

                          Tempted by Bruno >> Greenwood also.
