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.

Subs: Barnes, Peacock-Farrell, Rodriguez, Pieters, Vydra, Nartey, Dunne, Richardson, Driscoll-Glennon.

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Rhys Williams, Robertson, Thiago, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane.

Subs: Milner, Adrian, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jones, Tsimikas, Shaqiri, Origi, Neco Williams, Koumetio.

West Bromwich Albion XI: Johnstone, Furlong, Robson-Kanu, Bartley, Ajayi, Phillips, Pereira, Townsend, Gallagher, Maitland-Niles, Yokuslu.

Subs: Button, Robinson, Diangana, Diagne, Peltier, O’Shea, Grant, Gardner-Hickman, King.

West Ham United XI: Randolph, Cresswell, Coufal, Benrahma, Lingard, Dawson, Fornals, Ogbonna, Soucek, Antonio, Rice.

Subs: Trott, Balbuena, Yarmolenko, Noble, Bowen, Diop, Fredericks, Johnson, Odubeko.

    Is 17 points off top10k too far?

    1. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Nope. Just need a little luck.

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Need a differential to haul and you'll make that up

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        But also need Salah to blank.. very difficult 🙁

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      With [C] luck and one differential success you may get there

    4. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Nope. Captain choice will be critical.

    5. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Not impossible but you basically have to captain a very low ownership player

      I’m in almost identical situation

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Leeds fixture I guess, really can’t see anywhere else for a big haul

        1. TheDragon
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Usually a very high scoring gameweek

          I don’t love it but Mane might be the answer

          1. Qaiss
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 7 days ago

            I think Raph could be good too, West Brom look done

  2. Stand By Mee

    4 months, 7 days ago

    My GW was a catastrophe and I was so scared I could not even look at Live FPL. Fortunately in the end Lingard/Antonio combo will mitigate the damage a little bit. But it is still bad: 48 points.

    1. DA Minnion (Legendary manag…
      • 9 Years

      Only 42 here. Even with a captain success. Bruno. Lol.

    2. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      That’s not a bad score this week

    3. Toby Lerone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      48 is good mate

    4. Shark
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 7 days ago

      40 points including BB. Can't wait for the last game to be over.

    51 points and small green.
    Will take that given everything!

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years

      Nice work Hazz

        Cheers KK!

  4. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    One of those weeks with what looked a killer team on paper, but an absolutely atrocious score/outcome

  5. TheDragon
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Over the 2,400 point mark

    One final captain gamble to try to get top 10k

    1. Mile Plankton
      • 8 Years

      Same here

    2. My heart goes Salalalalah

      Wow

  6. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    A green arrow despite captaining Kane. Into the top 50K.

  7. Pep Roulette

    JLingzzzzz

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      never a doubt.

  8. Pat Bonner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    There’s a real lack of decent punts for 38. Might get iheanacho back in

    1. beric
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      not sure whether to hold foden or not

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Tough one. Maybe get a hint from pep but Torres might be a decent option if looking to switch

        1. beric
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          seems like out of the frying pan into the fire that move

    2. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Nacho or possibly Woods

    3. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I'm glad I still have him. Spurs looks awful.

    4. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Glad I didn't move him on. even if it would have been for Bam/Antonio.

    5. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      They've gotta go for it - will need to win by at least 5 if pool win as well

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Thanks, didn’t realise that. Makes him even more appealing

  9. Scholes Out Forever
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    that Antonio - Lingard goal killed me this week...

    6k drop from that alone

    1. 272MK
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      That was a crazy goal.

      Gave my rivals 12pts

      1. Sleepless in Settle FPL
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        14

    2. Mika-eel
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      ML rival has both. Was sick to my stomach when that went in.

  10. Bookkeeper
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Pool could finish 3rd and 5pts behind UTD, says more about UTD that.

    1. JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Tbf they just embarrassed them at Old Trafford with a centre back partnership of Nat Phillips and Reece Williams. That speaks volumes

      1. Milkman Bruno
        4 months, 7 days ago

        4games in 8 days too though mind. Klopp himself said it was criminal

  11. ManUtdFan977
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    if bruno not gonna start the last game who's a good replacement for the last gwk I'm thinking mount/foden

    1. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Mané if you have the funds.

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Still after today’s match?

        1. Duke Silver ☑
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Why not? Fans will be back and they have everything to play for.

  12. jonnybhoy
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Greenwood or Antonio for the last game?

    1. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Greenwood probably won't start so Antonio

  13. The Train Driver
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    How the f did Lingard get 2 bonus?

    Phillips only 1, should have 3 even without that goal, dominated the game.

    Bonus system needs to get scrapped or changed, preferably scrapped!

    1. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Was very low BPS in the WHU game. When he got the assist he jumped to 21. Then jumped again to 26/27. Guessing he made a few stat-padding passes at the end.

    2. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      It should be scrapped

    3. ButterB
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Phillips was fantastic. Deserves more than 1 BP, on 39 to Bobby F's 40 bonus..Might still get them

  14. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Can't believe getting a red arrow ... was so optimistic at the start of todays games. Never again!

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Huge red for me too bro

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Small red with 49 pts, still a red 🙁

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Scared to check mine with 37 🙁

  15. Yank Revolution

    8 green arrows in a row sees me sniffing the Top 125 K after being ranked 1.1 million K after GW 18 (I was even worse off earlier this season)...Triple Capt. chip left...with some luck, I could sneak into top 100 K!

    1. ButterB
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nice one, who are you throwing the TC on ?

      1. Yank Revolution
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Thanks! I honestly don't know...I also have 2 free transfers...Hard to look past Salah at home to Palace, but Antonio home to Soton could be a winner.

  22. Bookkeeper

    Leics vs Spurs could be a goalfest. Keep your spurs attackers and Nacho.

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam

      Will do 🙂

    2. Vinyl78LP
      • 11 Years

      Leicester may need 5 or 6 to pressure Liverpool, could be like a basketball game if they get a couple early on.

    3. Sleepless in Settle FPL

  26. Milkman Bruno

    Hmmm what to do with this lot then? Can’t really afford take a hit and 0itb. Fernandes to Manè? Play Lingard or Torres?

    Mendy
    Taa, Shaw, Dallas
    Salah, Bruno, Torres, Raphina
    Kane, Wood, Antonio

    Martinez, Lingard, Struijk, Mitchell 1ft

    1. zotter

      Deffo

    2. Milkman Bruno

      Whoops can’t afford Manè

    3. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Bruno to someone - might start Lingard over Wood - WH now have a little less pressure and in front of adoring fans for the last game. Burnley been swapping strikers around a bit - Wood coming off early etc.

      Risk bringing in an extra Man City mid for Bruno? They might go off.

  27. 272MK

    Should have a hot topic about most memorable moments in this fpl.

    Like mine was captaining Bale hattrick when everybody went Kane captain

    And the time I passed the deadline while doing transfers, so I didnt captain KDB for his double gw when other players only had 1

    1. Royal5
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Charlie Austins hatty for QPR was an awsome captain choice a few years ago.

    2. Vinyl78LP
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      For me, nothing will ever top my Salomon Rondon (C) hat trick.

  28. Ohh1454
    • 3 Years

    Any chance shaw plays ? And Siggy > raph/Harrison/Torres ?

  29. Royal5
    • 10 Years

    What are peopledoing with Son? Looked like a disease tonight.

    1. Ohh1454
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Could do ok against Leicester that’ll be very open I’d say

      1. Royal5
        • 10 Years

        So did they say pre Villa :/
