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.


LINE-UPS

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

    Its games like this that makes you wonder how Salah scores so much...
    Looks truly awful in every touch

        Enormous for me. Cuts ML deficit to 2pts from 8 this morning.

      Leicester fortunate to have their EL place secure from the FA Cup victory. Nothing to lose now as they are the least likely to qualify for CL.

      1. Bartowski
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        They're four points ahead in 5th with one game to go.

      Kane, Salah and Bruno all blank. Crazy.

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Yes they all blanked but Bruno seems to have more points?

        2 months, 14 days ago

        This is why I didn't listen to y'all suggesting I bench Lingard over one of Bale/Dallas/Digne.

        Questions here are useful for something 😉

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I still don’t own him LOL

          Bringing him in on the final GW though for ASM

      11. JONALDINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        54 all out. Decent considering a captain fail I guess. Most important thing was that Liverpool win! Getting UCL would be massive

      12. Sharkytect
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        All round terrible captaincy talleys

        1. Mile Plankton
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Bruno (c) looks decent now.

        Salah holdddddd. Non owner here 🙂

        1. UNDERWORLD7
          • 10 Years

          Lol

      14. JBG
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        23pts between me and 2nd place. Can he catch me? I'm going to bring in 2 or 3 player's he has as diff over me. Leaving him with only Son/TAA(depends who off them I bring in) and Keane.

        Am I good?

      15. Athletico Underachieving
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Weirdly happy with 46 after being on 19 before the ‘pool and West Ham games...

      16. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        If Robertson had any decency he should have got a yellow so Phillips got the bonus.

        1. Royal5
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Robbo was on 3 baps even before the second assist

        2. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Robertson is 16 BAPs clear of anyone else. YC is only -3 BAPs.

      17. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I was on 16 points with about 30mins of the pool/West Ham games to go and should end on 49! Delighted with that

      18. Milkman Bruno
          2 months, 14 days ago

          14 points behind ML rival heading into the final gameweek...

          1. Sleepless in Settle FPL
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Bruno to Mane (C)

            1. Milkman Bruno
                2 months, 14 days ago

                Possible transfer but I won’t captain!

          2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Everyone captaining Kane or Salah. Not me hehe. Went Greenwood 😎

              • 10 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Well why wouldn’t you be?

                2 months, 14 days ago

                Too bad the rest of my team sucked and I didn't even make 40 points lol

                1. UNDERWORLD7

            Anyone else thinking of getting in Mane as a last GW punt?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years

                Robertson has just been announced in Scotland's Euro squad, will be buzzing to get in

            Lame week
            46 no hits.
            Meslier no-show was the difference between a red & a green for me.

            Down from 1,245 > 1,595

            Need to make up 9 points to get into the top 1k - so time to think of something different and fun for next week. I've been telling folks the plan is to get Mane & Willock in - wish I did that this week.

          6. Mile Plankton
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Looks like that WHU third will push me down despite owning Lingz.
            So many Anotnioooooos here.

            Can't believe Bruno turned out to be the best captain choice out of the popular picks thanks to that assist!

            1. Party time
                2 months, 14 days ago

                Lol

                After everything he was gifted in the GW prior it’s not that difficult to believe it.

              Nacho vs Spurs looks tasty.

                  2 months, 14 days ago

                  Absolutely. Nacho will feast
