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: 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.

    Just outside top 2k, 2 FT, what u guys reckon…?

    Martinez - Forster
    Trent - Dallas - Rudiger - Digne - Holding
    Salah - Son - Lingard - Raphina - Jota
    Kane - Vydra - DCL

    A) DCL > Antonio and Vydra > Bamford
    B) one of the above and Son > Mane

    1. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 1 day ago

      A looks a great move. That's the forward line I'm going with.

    2. A-L
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      DCL & Vydra to Bamford & Antonio? Or find room for City mids?

    3. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      Dont think you need our advice mate.

      A looks nice though, so cue DCL brace against City

  2. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 1 day ago

    Would you start Vydra against Sheffield United ahead of DCL v Man City?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      No

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 1 day ago

        Thanks. Other option is DCL to Bamford - 4. Better option?

  3. A-L
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 1 day ago

    Best GK for this week other than Alisson or Ederson?

    1. DRIZ ✅
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      De Gea

      1. Rains of Castamere
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 1 day ago

        Henderson plays

    2. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      I'd say Mendy

    3. dabber7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 months, 1 day ago

      Casilass

  4. ㅤRising
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 1 day ago

    Should I transfer out Bruno and Shaw tonight or tomorrow because price rises under the assumption they cant start in a league 2 days before EL final?

    1. Abaddon
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      Do you need to sell them now? Who are you bringing in? Exact funds?

    2. A-L
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      What moves are you planning to make and is it exact cash?

      1. ㅤRising
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 1 day ago

        exact cash. Bringing Trent, Mane, Bamford,

  5. Mahjongking
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 1 day ago

    For the last gameweek, will u sell mahrez or greenwood for willock?

    1. A-L
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      Probably neither - Greenwood could still start

    2. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 1 day ago

      I have Greenwood and am playing him.

  6. Indpush
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 1 day ago

    If you had a FH for 38 what 15 would you have?

    Mine currently is:

    Norris
    Dallas, Tarkowski, Coufal
    Mane, Salah, Son, Greenwood
    Kane, Firmino, Iheanacho

    Peacock, Willock, Alioski, Mitchell

    1. Coaly
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      Would bin Greenwood - rotation concern.

      Leeds attack should do well
      As should Antonio

      1. Indpush
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 1 day ago

        Cheers ya you are right. Thought it would be a fun punt with Greeny and if he didn't play Willock would come in.

        Changed Firmino out for Antonio (who was in my first team actually along with TAA). Brought back TAA.

        Swapped out Greenwood for Harrison and Mitchell for Cresswell

        Starting Dallas, TAA, Cresswell, Mane, Salah, Son, Harrison, Kane, Antonio, Iheanacho

        Bench: Willock, Coufal, Alioski

        1. Coaly
          • 8 Years
          5 months, 1 day ago

          Sounds good

          1. Indpush
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 1 day ago

            Thanks for your input Coaly. Appreciated it. I think, hahaha. Lets see but must say, ya looks better now. Think I won't touch it now unless an injury pops up or confirmed someone isn't playing.

  7. Oooo Matron
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 1 day ago

    A or B?

    A) Son & DCL to Mane & Antonio
    B) Greenwood & DCL to Mane & Jebbison

    Current team:
    Mendy
    TAA Digne Dallas
    Salah Son Lingard Raphina
    Kane DCL Bamford

    Subs: Forster, Greenwood, Holding, Fofa

    1. Boly Would

      A

    2. A-L

      5 months, 1 day ago

      A

  8. michaelington
    • 11 Years
    5 months, 1 day ago

    Watkins to Bamford for free? Can’t see any other moves and not sure on taking a hit for the last week.

    Martinez
    Dallas TAA Rudiger
    Salah Son Raphinha Lingard
    Antonio Watkins Kane

    Areola Shaw Zaha Keane

    1. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      That's a good move.

  9. Scholes Out Forever

    Really hope Liverpool fans give Roy a proper send off

    Class manager

    1. A-L
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Gift his old club some nice goal difference

      1. Scholes Out Forever
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 1 day ago

        dont think pool needs it at this stage

    2. DRIZ ✅
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      About time he left

  10. Silecro
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 1 day ago

    Have 2 questions:
    1. Anyone knows why Torres went out at 15th min?
    2. Which percentage would you give Patricio to start vs MUN? Given he was benched today

    Thanks.

    1. Keeptrying
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      1. Tactical. Cancelo red card, so attacking player out

    2. A-L
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      Cancelo sent off

    3. Keeptrying
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      2. No idea. Not worth a transfer. Either he plays or he won't 🙂

  11. Keeptrying
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 1 day ago

    What a season. Finally it will come to an end.
    I think I will just do one FT, captain Salah as planned and hope for the best.
    No need to overthink it.

  12. Mahjongking
    • 4 Years

    If u got taa and salah, taking bobby for last gameweek isit too much?

    1. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      Don’t think so no

    2. leeboy104
        5 months, 1 day ago

        Nah, it's a decent punt.

    3. Ragabolly
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      Very tight race for FPL title http://www.livefpl.net/leagues/314

      Ola leads by 1 point but looks like #2 has a better team for GW38..

      1. Ibralicious
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 1 day ago

        My money's on Mohamad!

        1. Ragabolly

          Same!

      2. Keeptrying

        Very tight race.

    4. jia you (The No BS League -…
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      Had a few shockers this season but this one takes the biscuit:

      Harsh -3 (Cancelo)
      Unlucky -4 (Greenwood(C) + Harrison in for Siggy + Lingard)
      Attacking double ups blank (Kane, Son, Ings, JWP)
      Benched Iheanacho

      25pts

    5. Ibralicious
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 1 day ago

      Mendy
      TAA - Holding - Ayling
      Salah - Bruno - Son - Raphinha
      Kane - DCL - Bamford

      (Forster) (Bowen - Coady - Amartey) - 1 FT - 1.4 ITB

      Pull the trigger on DCL -> Firmino? Priced out after tonight.

      1. leeboy104
          5 months, 1 day ago

          You happy to keep Bruno? I'd say he's more of a priority.

          1. Ibralicious
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 1 day ago

            Hmm. Don't know if he'd be benched for sure. I do know for sure that if he plays, I'd much rather have Bruno and Firmino than Mane and DCL

      2. No Professionals
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 1 day ago

        Trailing by 14 points in mini league (with 3rd only 4 behind me)

        Areola
        Trent Dallas Digne Dunk
        Salah(c) Bale Lingard Raphinha
        Kane Iheanacho

        Martinez Watkins JWP Shaw
        1ft 1.6m

        A) digne and Watkins to Robertson and Antonio (bench dunk)
        B) bale and digne to mane and Rudiger (or another up to 5.2m)

        1. BeWater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 1 day ago

          A

        2. Ain't No Holebas Girl
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 1 day ago

          I do like the idea of getting Mané in (and potentially capping) if chasing but A looks a pretty good shout here. You get to keep Bale as well who I guess could be a bit of a differential?

          1. No Professionals
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 1 day ago

            Yeah, I think a) looks more balanced of the 2

      3. Boly Would
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 1 day ago

        Which Leeds transfer to make? Or Antonio?
        A) Maguire to Dallas
        B) Martinelli to Raphinha
        C) Watkins to Bamford/Antonio?

        1. BeWater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 1 day ago

          C with Bamford.

          1. Boly Would
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 1 day ago

            Cheers. You playing Greenwood this week? Doing C means starting one of him or Martinelli

            1. BeWater
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              I'm playing Greenwood.

          haha 55 points with BB, Meslier 0, Guaita 1, Kane 2, DCL 2, Salah (C) 3, AWB + Shaw + Semedo = 4

          Somehow I managed to get a green arrow shooting me up to top 120k.
          FPL is simply the most f up game out there.
