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.

      Hattrick of sitters missed.

    Shot onto the post denies Henderson a 2nd assist

    1. Royal5

      Did you captain him?

    Fellow Jota owners; great pick, just bad luck.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years

      Makes him a true Kaptain Kane pick then

  4. KAPTAIN KANE

    Nice to see Jota rewarding me for capping him last week

    1. sunzip14
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Bruno next week then?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Gonna have to be!

  5. jackruet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Jota cant score with his feets

  6. SHOWSTOPPERRR
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Normal services resumed by Jota. You can't miss these type of chances.

  7. FOO FIGHTER
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Imagine if Jota was all cylinders firing? He probably would be the highest scoring player in the game...

    1. ZeBestee
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      He gets the chances, so that alone is enough to elevate him. Even Firmino doesnt create for.himself enough.

  8. Steinburg FC
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    jota 44% EO don't think i can watch this...

  9. ZeBestee
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    That was a huge save from.Raya, great reflex. Couldn't criticize Jota for shooting on target, was unlucky.

  10. Bartowski
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Jota suddenly remembering he needs to fight for his place.

    1. ZeBestee
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      In all honesty, he played well last game bar the horror misses. He tracked back, won balls back, combined well with the front 3, just not clinical.

  11. Echoes
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Should've benched the Siuuu merchant and started the GOAT Toney

  12. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Robbo wins a dangerous one.

    Trent or Salah...

  13. JBG
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    What a run by Robbo. Not sure it's a FK though.

  14. FOO FIGHTER
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Wonder when Firmino will be introduced?

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      When Mane gets too tired.

  15. Viprin
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Score this Trent

    1. DycheDycheBaby
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      No chance

  16. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Trent Bruno's it.

  17. Union_Jacks
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    F*** me Trent FKs have been rubbish this season

    1. DycheDycheBaby
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      He has such a short run up and doesn't get his head over the ball. Needs some tips from JWP!

    2. Maeki2
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 10 days ago

      All freekicks in every game is rubbish. 1/100 hit the goal

  18. Royal5
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Poor effort

  19. Milkman Bruno
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Come on you Bees

    • g40steve

      Brentford time wasting yet again

      1. mynameisq
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        They're honestly so annoying, taking it way too far. Did it in the last game too

        1. ZeBestee
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Was really disappointed wirh them against Wolves, wasting time will come back to bite them.later if they don't correct.

        2. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Wolves we’re complaining but ref passed it off, a few yellows needed to cut it out.

          1. mynameisq
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            100%, ruins the game

    • pundit of punts
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Lot of Toney owners around my rank.

      Why is that assist still there?

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        His cheeky backheel took 2 defenders out. Well deserved ( and no, I don't have him).

      2. F4L
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        you think Fabinho kicked it onto Pinnock?

        1. mynameisq
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          He did

          1. F4L
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            should be removed then

        2. pundit of punts
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Of course

      3. mynameisq
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Isn't it still an assist by the rules? Because it still went to the person it was going to and he didn't really control it before he lost it

        1. mynameisq
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Something similar happened with an Ollie Watkins assist last year, where the defender actually controlled it and lost it

          1. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Intendet target?

            1. mynameisq
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Yup basically that, if fabinho controlled it and then cleared it onto pinnock then no assist but toneys pass forced fabinho to do that in this instance and it was going to pinnock anyway

              Assist will stand

        2. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          If Pinnock was the intended destination (near it), it'll stand.

          1. mynameisq
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Can't be seen as anything else really, should stand even though fabinho did clear it onto him

          2. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            I thought Toney was the intended recipient of the pass. He knew he couldn't control it, so he intentionally deflected it to teammates behind him.

          3. pundit of punts
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Doesn’t matter who the intended player was

            Opponent player kicked it onto pinnock

            Tibet’s touch becomes irrelevant

    • JBG
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Wow.. that Jota goal actually killed my green arrow.

        What is a green arrow?

        1. Gunneryank
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Mythic fantasy weapon used by forest pixies.

            1. Mr. O'Connell
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              I see. Knew it couldn't be FPL-related.

            Something I used to see after poor start last season...

          • Mozumbus
              2 months, 10 days ago

              I saw that in the museum

          • 4 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          How did Jota not get that second goal…one of the best saves I’ve seen

          1. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Annoying 🙁

          Shaw to alonso!
          ?

          1. JBG
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Wait and see if Chilwell starts CL.

            1. dshv
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              If he starts CL what is that mean to Alonso ??

              1. Baps hunter
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                No, but if he doesn't and Alonso does, it is.

              2. JBG
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                More certain that Alonso starts CL. Imo.

                1. JBG
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 10 days ago

                  PL I mean.

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

            Either Alonso or Rudiger for Shaw!

        4. jackruet
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Should i keep jota? City next match and firmino is back?

          1. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Difficult to sell now, but he is a bit too expensive to be benched also. Salah playing too wide is another issue also.

        5. Puntillimon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          I have no more players after pool game. Slightly afraid.

          1. Dušan Citizen
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Same here, just need Palace and Wolves goals to deny Sanchez, Duffy and Livra cs.

          2. Echoes
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 10 days ago

            I have Dier and Veltman left. Might not mean much points wise tho.

          3. Mr. O'Connell
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Guaita, Duffy, Livramento, Semedo. Reckon I get 6 points max between the lot of them.

        6. Twisted Melon
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          A) Bamford and Jota > Lukaku and Kovacic -4
          B) Ronaldo > Lukaku

          1. Mozumbus
              2 months, 10 days ago

              A

          2. xHaTr

            • 3 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Worth selling Salah to Lukaku for the -4 for one week before wildcard in gw8 and getting salah back?

              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 12 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              See if Salah gets injured midweek.

            2. Mozumbus
                2 months, 10 days ago

                No

              • Gandalf
                • 11 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                Nope, Southampton’s defence has been good recently and kept out city

            3. Dušan Citizen
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Well, that Jota to Soucek transfer paid off...

              1. Baps hunter
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                Selling Jota before this fixture?!?

            4. Lord of Ings
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              For the foreseeable future
              Trent or Dias?
              Trent has a much higher ceiling but Dias is guaranteed clean sheets.

              1. xHaTr
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                Trent and a city defender are both pretty essential going forward

              2. Athletico Underachieving
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 10 days ago

                Can’t look past both personally

              3. g40steve

                • 3 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                FYI

                Trent 7.5 m 35 points

                Pinnock 4.6 m 36 points!

              4. KAPTAIN KANE
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                Cancelo is the one, could kick myself I didn’t start with him.
                He was in loads of my drafts
