Jota starts as Torres, Sterling and Mahrez benched for Man City

In the final match of Gameweek 7, Liverpool host Manchester City in a mouth-watering clash at Anfield.  

Kick-off is at 16:30 BST.

As expected, Liverpool are without the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m), along with midfielders Thiago (£5.3m) and Harvey Elliot (£5.4m).

James Milner (£4.9m) starts at right-back, with Diogo Jota (£7.6m) preferred to Roberto Firmino (£8.8m) up front.

For Man City, Ilkay Gundogan (£7.2m) and Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.3m) both miss out.

Gabriel Jesus (£8.6m), Jack Grealish (£8.0m) and Phil Foden (£7.9m) all start, with Ferran Torres (£7.0m), Raheem Sterling (£10.7m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.7m) on the bench.

GAMEWEEK 7 LINE-UPS

Liverpool XI: Alisson, Milner, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Jones, Salah, Mane, Jota

Subs: Kelleher, Konate, Keita, Firmino, Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Minamino, Tsimikas, Williams

Man City XI: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Rodri, De Bruyne, Silva, Jesus, Grealish, Foden 

Subs: Steffen, Carson, Stones, Ake, Sterling, Torres, Fernandinho, Mahrez, Palmer

      Stupid, Salah by a mile on 2nd half performance

      It's not!

      Won't help Sky Sports with points for MoM. Presumably they will ignore that noisy Neville.

      If Foden played as well as Salah, Man City would be winning

    Only attacking returns this week, yet it's going to drop my rank. Crazy GW.

      Danny Rose has his work cut out for him.

      Seems a good chance that Zinchenko comes in vs. Burnley now. Nightmare for owners.

        2. KAPTAIN KANE

          Yes because it’s FT now

      3. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        As crap as Kane has been, they play Newcastle next.

        Bruno > Salah

        Whatever else you need to get him.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          May have to go without Trent/Robbo then

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Unless you don't go for Vardy. Jesus is cheaper and on top for example.

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years

        You need Salah. Can’t keep putting yourself through the punishment every week

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Yeah we all know what he’s capable of, but he has truly ripped me a new one recently

      7. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Do you have MITB? I would try not to take a hit

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          0.4, it literally leaves 0.2 short of Salah - even things like that have bummed me this season

        2. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          It’s selling Shaw or Alonso to enable Bruno to Salah basically

          1. Super Saints
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Ok sell Alonso as at least Shaw will start and get Salah

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              James would be a nice swap if he’s back

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Needs some refinement to compete with Monopoly and Carcassone, but FPL has the potential to be a classic

    3. TheTinman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      50pts all out. Have a good international break. See y'all later

        This. My only player with a return this week (after taking minus 4) was last on bench Livra. Got to laugh really. It’s only a game.

            What a sh*tty week.

            Listened to live commentary and that was some match.

            Going to be a tight title challenge between LFC, City and CHE this season.

            Salah is FPL King!

              1 month, 25 days ago

              I think Liverpool lost it now. Not winning v Chelsea and City at home, Chelsea with 10, and Milner not booked second time here, just seems like 4 points dropped. City are not going to drop points, have solid backline, they are going to manage games 1:0, 2:0 and win it in the end.

            was forced to wildcard with trent, shaw/dier doubt, bamford, ghost torres, saddison, etc. brought in foden and mbeumo. so satisfying considering theyre 1% owned

            Thoughts on WC??

            Ramsdale (Sanchez)
            Cancelo, Azpi, Rudiger (Duffy, Manquillo)
            Salah, Raphina, Townsend, Mbuemo, (Luiz)
            Vardy, Lukaku, Jiminez

            1. bryant

              1 month, 25 days ago

              looks good, only suggestion would be maybe downgrading vardy to armstrong/toney/pukki if that can get you son over townsend (not sold on him) depending on how much you have itb

            Any thoughts on who to get as a City attacker? Not convinced in Grealish

            1. GreennRed
              • 10 Years

              Foden / KDB

                • 5 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                Foden is likely to play less games than KDB, but plays further forward, at least for now. Jesus has become the assister

                How did KdB look in this game in terms of goal threat?

            3. FOO FIGHTER
              • 2 Years

              Nice one. I'm gonna sell Lukaku. Not worth his price.

                Even before Norwich? That fixture scares me as a non owner but he could easy troll everyone

                  Yeah. He got 3 turns from me and didn't take them. He'll score against Norwich but he's overpriced. Considering Hwang for a mad punt.
