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.

      Such a depressing gameweek. Rotten Urd and Spurs games which had the potential for goals with those leaky Fulham and Villa defences. My good team on paper flopping for the umpteenth time this season.

      The end of the season has been such a strange period for goalkeepers. Surprise selections or rotation in the following clubs

      Wolves
      Arsenal
      Chelsea
      Man United
      Man City
      Southampton
      Leeds
      Everton
      Burnley

      Think I'll be starting next season with 2 playing keepers!

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I’ll just go Martinez again. Unless he’s more than 5/5.5

        1. Collie01
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I think he'll be 5.5, like Pope was this season.

      2. Nightcrawler
        • 2 Years

        Why? If anything u shd have 2 playing keepers in 2nd wc. Contradiction in ur comment

    22. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Lingard owners lucky. If he had taken the penalty he would have missed just like last time.

    23. Lindelol
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Damn POST
      Wish Johnstone had stopped it 🙁

    24. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      That doesnt count as a save for Johnstone does it?

      He's my keeper this GW 🙁

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Unless they adjudge it that he got a Bruno-esque touch

      If fpl are consistent they will give Johnstone the save points

      He didn’t touch it just like Bruno didn’t touch the ball last night
