Champions League-chasing Liverpool up against Norris as injured Pope misses out

The final two matches of Gameweek 37 kick off concurrently at 20:15 BST this evening.

Liverpool are the main draw from a Fantasy perspective, with the most-captained player of this Gameweek set to face Burnley’s third-choice goalkeeper.

With Diogo Jota (£6.9m) injured, Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) and his two usual compadres in the Reds’ attack start as expected this evening.

Jurgen Klopp has made just the one change from the last-gasp win at West Brom, with Curtis Jones (£4.4m) replaced by Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.3m).

Sean Dyche has made two tweaks to the side that lost 4-0 at home to Leeds United.

There’s a surprise between the posts, with Will Norris (£4.0m), not Bailey Peacock-Farrell (£4.0m), lining up in Nick Pope‘s (£5.5m) absence.

Norris’s only previous appearances in the Premier League came back in the 2018/19 season as a late substitute for Wolves.

The other change sees winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.4m) replace forward Matej Vydra (£4.8m), with Dyche seemingly adopting similar tactics to the ones he used against Manchester United.

There was originally just one change apiece at the Hawthorns, meanwhile.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£4.6m) comes in for Grady Diangana (£5.0m) for the hosts, while Said Benrahma (£5.9m) replaces Jarrod Bowen (£5.9m) for the Hammers.

But there is a late change to the West Ham line-up as Darren Randolph (£4.3m) is in for the injured Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m) between the posts.

Burnley: Norris, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Brownhill, Westwood, Cork, McNeil, Gudmundsson, Wood.

    They said salah and Kane would be hungry for goals and trying to get the golden boot

    One of the biggest myths. Thanks for nothing

      This.

      They fooled us again, Bemba.

    So, if TAA is £7.5m again next season and VVD is £6.5m, would you be tempted to go with big Virg instead?

        1. Gudjohnsen

          Kane has an unbelievable record against Leicester. And mane always scores against crystal palace. So I would do son to mane only

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            Kane has a fantastic record against Villa too.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Think it's a worthwhile risk if you're comfortable with the possibility of it going horribly wrong.

          Spurs didn't look great tonight, particularly Kane.

        4. Team Bobcat
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          I think if you want do do something maverick then maybe throw the armband on kane..

          Neither mane or werner appeals to me

          I could be wrong but I seem to remember it actually doesn’t but people understandably claiming it should, I.e I don’t think outfield players get save BPS

          Phillips with a goal line clearance now ha

        • diesel001
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          VVD and Phillips would be an interesting CB combo. Particularly against teams like Palace, Newcastle, Burnley who play with a forward that likes to challenge in the air.
