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!

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

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

      1. Collie01
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

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

    2. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

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

  21. diesel001
    • 4 Years

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

  22. Lindelol
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Wish Johnstone had stopped it 🙁

  23. Scholes Out Forever

    • 8 Years

    That doesnt count as a save for Johnstone does it?

    He's my keeper this GW 🙁

    1. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK

    • 11 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    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
