Robertson and Alexander-Arnold return to Liverpool XI as Jota starts again

Liverpool’s trip to Brentford is the seventh and final Premier League match of the day.

Kick-off is at 17:30 BST.

After a blank for Cristiano Ronaldo earlier in the day, captainers of Mohamed Salah have a chance to steal a march on those Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers who decided against handing the armband to the Egyptian.

Jurgen Klopp has made four changes to the Liverpool team that beat Crystal Palace 3-0 at Anfield last weekend.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip and Andrew Robertson all return in defence, with Curtis Jones replacing the injured Thiago Alcantara in midfield.

James Milner, Ibrahima Konate and Kostas Tsimikas make way.

Diogo Jota again leads the line, with Salah and Sadio Mane either side of the Portugal international, but Roberto Firmino is back among the substitutes after a month on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

Brentford manager Thomas Frank makes just the one change to the Bees side that won 2-0 at Wolverhampton Wanderers last Saturday.

Frank Onyeka replaces Shandon Baptiste, who drops to the bench.

Ten Brentford players are ever-present starters in the Premier League this season.

    Jota Ronaldo Bamford to Raphina Lukaku Vardy with a -4?

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      22 days, 21 hours ago

      Yes.

    2. Chilli Heatwave
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      22 days, 21 hours ago

      Annoyingly to bring in Lukaku without a hit would have to Gallagher coming in instead of Raphina.

      1. jackruet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        Wait for raphinha news and CL Matches

  2. jackruet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    22 days, 21 hours ago

    If Shaw is ok for next week, i would probably keep him against everton. Without dcl, richa not sure how everton will score. Doucure grey wont score every week and utd might bounce back

    1. Maeki2
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      and Maguire?

    Thoughts on this WC?

    TAA Alonso White Livramento Williams
    Salah Raphinha Sarr Gray Sissoko
    Ronaldo Lukaku Richardson

    1.9 ITB

  4. g40steve

    Sauce time

  5. Thomas Magnum
    • 6 Years
    22 days, 21 hours ago

    Pondering some differentials for future WC, of course players will come and go from the list but just for discussions sake, what do we think of Zaha?

    1. Thanos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      22 days, 21 hours ago

      One my watchlist along with Gallagher and Eduoard from Palace.

      Monday night is their auditions 🙂

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        Sure will be, if Gallagher looks better than he may be the go for over a million less but Zaha with pens is a bonus. Eduoard is an interesting one, him ASM and Armstrong all in contention for a spot in my side

    2. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      22 days, 21 hours ago

      Everton guys are cheap and better

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        Currently have Doucoure in my non pre WC side

  6. Thanos
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    22 days, 21 hours ago

    Do you think Greenwood would start against Everton? Don't think he had a good game today so maybe Sancho starts next one?

    1. Atimis
      • 5 Years
      22 days, 21 hours ago

      Sancho been worse every time he started for United

      1. Thanos
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        True. But with United losing back to back, I think Ole will try to change things.

        Of course, he can't touch CR7, Bruno or Pogba in that setup so it seems that Greeny will be the fall guy.

        1. Atimis
          • 5 Years
          22 days, 21 hours ago

          Pogba should play deeper, Fred out, Pogba in mid, Sancho on the wing

    2. Gunneryank
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        I bet he does, but something about United's attacking set up is off. Rashford and Sancho surely have to be worked in soon, and United's fixtures have a real bad patch coming soon. I'm going to move away from Greeny here soon i think.

    3. Dynamic Duos
      • 8 Years
      22 days, 21 hours ago

      Would you keep Livramento or Marcal?

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        Livra

      2. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        Wait for the answer tomorrow

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 21 hours ago

      Raphina must be carrying an injury being taken off early? Same happened GW5.

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        Yes he’s still carrying an injury, had his legs iced up pretty heavily post match from what I’ve seen

      2. DGW Sane TC Fail....
        • 10 Years
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        would seem so

      3. Thanos
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        Yep, not fully fit. After he was subbed, he was shown with ice packs strapped to both his thighs.

      4. Maeki2
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        Yes he is that is why he gets reduced minutes. Still didnt seem to bother him on the field.

    5. Athletico Underachieving
      • 1 Year
      22 days, 21 hours ago

      46 with Livra and Sanchez and to go…it’ll do. Was set on GW8 WC but might have to push the button now. Would you with this lot?

      Sanchez,
      Duffy, TAA, Shaw (if fit)
      Salah, Jota, G’Wood, Sarr, Raph
      Ronaldo, Antonio

      (Steele, White, Livra, Scarlett)

    6. DGW Sane TC Fail....
      • 10 Years
      22 days, 21 hours ago

      Liverpool front line versus City:

      Jota Firmino Mane
      Salah

    7. Esalman
      • 11 Years
      22 days, 21 hours ago

      Which one out of these options?

      A. Lose Jota because you tripled up on Liverpool
      B. Lose Greenwood even though you'll lose any ManU coverage
      C. Lose Torres even though he has some plum fixtures coming (BUR bha CRY)

      1. Gunneryank
          22 days, 21 hours ago

          B

      2. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        Sauce put him down

      3. Reeker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        Did a quick wildcard draft. Can change.

        Sanchez - (Gunn)
        TAA - Shaw - Veltman (Ayling) (Tsimikas)
        Salah - Torres - Raphinha - Benrahma (Brownhill)
        Ronaldo - Antonio - Jimenez

        to

        Sanchez/Ramsdale - (Foster)
        TAA - Alonso - Cancelo (Livramento) (B. Williams/Duffy)
        Salah - Raphinha - Sarr - Benrahma (Normann)
        Lukaku - Antonio - Jimenez

        with 1.5 m in the bank to upgrade Williams/Duffy or Sarr/Raphinha/Benrahma

        surely I hit the button?

        1. Reeker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          22 days, 21 hours ago

          Obviously the draft isn't done but it's a good baseline to maneuver around

          1. Bertonian
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            22 days, 21 hours ago

            Sad when you have to answer your own posts lol

              22 days, 21 hours ago

              Wouldn't call the reply an answer now would you?

        2. Firminoooo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          22 days, 21 hours ago

          I would not WC for 4 players (excluding bench players). Take a hit.

        3. Bertonian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          22 days, 21 hours ago

          Nice team tho

          Like Ramsdale
          Alonso could get rotated so maybe Rudi
          Jimenez jury still out

      4. 3 Girls 1 Schlupp
        • 7 Years
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        Bottomed.

        Who will score more points in the next 5 GWs?
        A. Cancelo + Raphinha+ASM
        B. Gallagher+ Benny + Vardy
        C. Cancelo + Gallagher + Jesus

        1. Esalman
          • 11 Years
          22 days, 21 hours ago

          A

      5. Bruno Commando
        • 7 Years
        22 days, 21 hours ago

        CR7 + Greeny + Obafemi -> Lukaku + Vardy + 4.5 for a -4?

      6. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        So ronaldo & lukaku still the way to go?

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          22 days, 21 hours ago

          Need Lukaku for his upcoming fixtures.

          Wheels look to have come off again with Ole at the wheel. Still deciding to keep or switch Ronaldo.

          1. Gunneryank
              22 days, 21 hours ago

              Yeah the way they have integrated Ronnie is messing with their attacking chemistry. They may adapt and get better but they might get exposed even more when they play the big 3 sides. Watching them try to attack City and Chelsea may be....interesting.

          2. Thomas Magnum
            • 6 Years
            22 days, 21 hours ago

            Seriously considering dropping Ronaldo and just having Lukaku then doing Lukaku to Ronaldo for the rest of the season once the fixtures switch

          3. Atimis
            • 5 Years
            22 days, 21 hours ago

            See my post below.

            22 days, 21 hours ago

            Not for me, too much wedge & want Antonio long term & a strong City & Chelsea defence.

            With Lukaku atm but will go to Ronaldo at some point

        2. Champions League Varane
          • 2 Years
          22 days, 21 hours ago

          Jota and Bamford to Lukaku (C) and D.Luis (4.5) -4?

          1. Carefree Crew
            • 3 Years
            22 days, 21 hours ago

            I've done those exact transfers, so yes.

          Sauce wins

        4. Atimis
          • 5 Years
          22 days, 21 hours ago

          I don’t get people doing Ronaldo to Lukaku for a hit now.
          I’m (c) Ronaldo next week, while GW8 the best (c) imo is Salah, so you don’t need Kaku while Lei are conceding for fun so Ronaldo can be good too.
          For GW9, obviously Ronaldo to Kaku (c) for free locked!

          1. Gunneryank
              22 days, 21 hours ago

              Yeah a hit isn't worth it unless you can't field 11 or what not.

          2. 3 Girls 1 Schlupp
            • 7 Years
            22 days, 21 hours ago

            A. Vardy or Jesus
            B. Benny or Gallagher

            Need to decide for the next 5-6 GWs

            1. Bertonian
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              22 days, 21 hours ago

              Vardy & Gallagher

            Toney or Jiminez to Antonio for ft ,?

            Will wait on Wolves before deciding which one to ship

                22 days, 21 hours ago

                Yeah I think if Jiminez blanks he is deffo out, Toney has been good for what he is worth

                1. Firminoooo

                  22 days, 20 hours ago

                  Happy to keep Toney as 3 forward.Even cheap enough to bench. Jimmy don’t look 100% in form.

          4. FOO FIGHTER

            DCL expected back for UTD? If that is the case then he would be my Ronaldo replacement.

              I’m hoping one of him or Bamford are back, have Bamford but I’d he’s out and DCL back I may move for him mate

            For upcoming GWS
            CR7 > Lukaku
            Yaaaay
            Nope

              Think I will keep Ronaldo one more GW. Alonso looks tasty.

            2. Bertonian
