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.

GAMEWEEK 6 LINE-UPS

Brentford XI: Raja, Ajer, Jansson, Pinnock, Canos, Onyeka, Norgaard, Janelt, Henry, Mbeumo, Toney.

    One of those weeks you’re happy you didn’t take a hit

      One of my rare weeks where I rolled FT.

      One of my rules this season 🙂

      I’ve taken one hit this season…Barnes to Sarr in GW4. Worked a dream!

      1. Farteta

        I took two this week out of sheer madness to gain a total of......1 point 🙁

      Bamford/Greenwood > Vardy/Townsend -4 went pretty well

    Brentford have trailed for the fewest minutes in the Premier League this season.

    They were only behind after conceding a 90th-minute goal to Leandro Trossard in a 1-0 home defeat against Brighton on 11 September.

      What a terrible week of points! What is everyone on?

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

        34, Jota, TAA and Salah still on the pitch, Sanchez, Livra and Jimi yet to play

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

          Not bad! Similar to me but I’m on 26 and without Jimi :/

      2. Inazuma X1

        48 with 3 to go

        1. Inazuma X1

            Wow, well done! Captain?

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                I should’ve gone Antonio too but bottled it and switched to Ronaldo last minute. Always trust your gut…

      3. Gunneryank
          2 months, 10 days ago

          36 with 2 to go.

            39, 3 in this game and 3 more to come. Decent rank jump at the moment.

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

            Decent!

        • Holmes
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          28pts, red arrow. Not much fire left either.

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

            I feel your pain. Similar boat.

          43 with Salah playing and Sanchez to go

      4. dlrowssoB
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Seems like loads of mid-priced options have hauled today. Had my mind set on using 2FT to ditch Jota and Jimenez in order to get Lukaku, but the power 3 + TAA means so many compromises elsewhere

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

          Yup. So much talk of Threemiums and no value in mid-priced midfielders, so this happens!

        2 months, 10 days ago

        James on WC another disaster!

        Who to replace with?

        Torres & Greenwood on the chopping block as well

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

          Dias/Cancelo will set you for long term.

          1. g40steve
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            Cheers.

        2. The Sociologist
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Rudiger, accept the mistake (as I’m doing) and get the safest pick. Cancelo next week to partner him.

        3. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          You think you're having a bad week/season, look at me below

      6. CAVEAT KING
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        My team was in a mess. -8 got Sarr and Antonio thank God. Wanted Cancelo but took the safe Rudiger option. Rough with the smooth for the next podcast I think.

      7. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years

        Ronaldo to Vardy FT and get Ron back from GW14?

      8. Inazuma X1
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Looks like a week where all three premiums will be blanking

      9. Do I Not Like Orange
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        This needs WC this GW as opposed to 8, yes?

        Sanchez Foster
        TAA White Shaw* Tsimi* Ayling*
        Salah Raph Benny Greenwood* Torres*
        Ron Antonio Dennis*

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

          No. Just -4 will sort your starting XI, let the bench be sh*t.

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

            It's my bench that has been keeping my nose above water lately. The number of late injuries is freakish.

      10. OptimusBlack
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Was good plan to sell Lukaku for Vardy for this week and then get lukaku again and sell CR7 with 2.1M itb

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

        That puts a different light on Chelsea assets. Man C were decent, but not sure I want to invest 11.6/7m in any striker playing for a Tuchel side. 5 (2 wing backs) defenders, 3 defensive midfielders for a home game. Negative to say the least. Not one shot on target. May just stick with Ronaldo.

        1. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Lukaku has been awful since I brought him in for Antonio and I've completely ruined Rudiger, wouldn't touch, Lukaku ain't good enough for prem and ain't captain material

        2. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Different game, different approach. Luka is a flat track bully.

        3. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Chelsea rarely batter teams

          I am seeing lukaku being consistent over the next few easy games but my guess is a goal in each which isn’t great

        4. Egg noodle

          It was a home game against the champions, sherlock

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

            With Havertz and Ziyech unfit, and Mount and Pulisic out.

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

          Tbf today was against one of the best teams in the league. Expect them to attack more against weaker sides.

        6. BDA Shadow
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          They were playing their hardest game of the season and you're basing your entire decision off that? They're 1 goal behind the top scorers in the league, this is nonsense.

      12. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        No-one can touch this

        Shaw 0 and injured
        Rudiger 1
        Benrahma 2
        Sissoko 2
        Lukaku 2
        Ronaldo 2(C)

        TAA current on 1
        Salah currently on 2

              Yep because if your team is slightly unbalanced it means none of them will get points....

          • 7 Years

          Is it stupid to even think of Vardy in for Ronaldo?

          1. BDA Shadow
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Not at all.

            • 7 Years

            Changed it from Salah to Ronaldo last thing before bed last night. Good times.

            Mount was out, midfield three linked badly & James got injured. Supply lines cut.

        13. Eh, just one more thing ...

          Jota needs to be sent to finishing school. His FF manners are sadly lacking.

            Not done much wrong. But pretty invisible.
