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.

                Not really though, but some people get triggered for some
                Reason. If ya can’t complain here, then where can you, church?

                          You constantly blame bad luck which is different .

                            It is just bad luck though...

                                That's where you're utterly deluded. The same things have been happening week in week out to most others. Chasing sympathy is not a good trait

                          The whole point of FFS is to express heartache and moan

                                Exactly, they’re probs unhappy in life to pull someone up about moaning, on a site where it’s tailor made for that purpose

                              The point is that you always complain, thought that was pretty obvious by now.

                      What a hit Phillips has been for me. Bought just before the DGW.

                        Heading for a point more than Kane and Gwood and only one less than Bruno?

                      I knew TAA had just been super lucky outscoring Philips for the last 36 weeks. Finally regression to the mean

                        I got rid of him after seeing Trent's performance at United. Was terrified of going without him. Then this happens.

                      These past two nights of concurrent games have been far more enjoyable than the past few months. Hopefully next season, we can get back to more normality.

                        I benched Rudiger & Watkins. Everyone is benching a scorer this week or 2.

                      been telling folks to expect a phillips attacking return .

                      he's been in good positions.

                        Yeah but he kept putting the headers wider, over or both

                      Is Phillip's good then? Or just good for FPL?

                        Sold Watkins for Antonio (easier fixture, lol!). Jorginho and Rudiger laughing at me from my bench.

                        Them two nearly scored as much as the rest of my team combined.

                        Sums up this season of FPL, really.

                          Bruno my highest scoring player this week with 4... Captaining him wasn't as bad as I thought yesterday.

                            I couldn't work out how I'd gone to 37...thought there's been a Lingard assy that hadn't updated on the scores. Delighted!!

                          Could do with a Bruno-esque assist for Salah.

                            Lloris and Henderson seems a poor combo tbh. Otherwise looks like a standard team.

                              That was a WC decision to cover the blanks with Lloris and triple with Hendo which didn't go well lol
