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

    So, Would you do these transfers on WC?

    Benrahma & Jota >> Mbuemo & Foden

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

      Yes. Jota is ok, but will share minutes from now on.

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Hmm, I don't know. Probably yes

    3. Podge
      • 10 Years

    4. Sun Jihai

      Sound sensible
      Classic FPL if Jota starts and Pep benches Foden though next match!

      If you've had Greenwood from the start the price drop affect you?

      1. Silver_and_Gold
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 25 days ago

        yes

  2. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Worth going mid priced up top for this?

    Ramsdale
    Trent, Cancelo, Chilwell, Rudiger
    Salah, Son, Jota
    Antonio, Jimenez, Bamford

    Foster, Livramento, Luiz, Brownhill
    Bank 0.0m

    1. PLerix
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I’d want Lukaku

      1. potatoace
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        You can have mine if you want

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I'd want a premium striker slot

    3. Oooo Matron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I like it - maybe Jota to Raphina, as the former liable to rotation. I'm thinking pretty similar on my WC:

      Ramsdale
      Trent Cancelo Laporte Rudiger Azpi
      Salah Mane Raphina
      Bamford Jiminez Antonio

      Subs: Douglas Luiz, Livramento, Allan

    4. gogs67
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I'm looking at Bamford/Vardy/Antonio up front.

    5. Lord of Ings
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Is raphinha gonna miss gameweek 8?

      1. Flynny
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        No one knows yet

      2. potatoace
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        If its due to travel quarantine rules, then I'm sure they will find a way to circumvent that.

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

        Seems likely? Looks like:

        Plays Brazil on 15 October at 1:30 AM GMT
        Leeds play on 16 October at 3.00 PM GMT

        Even if no quarantine issues (which shouldn't be if jabbed), it's hardly any turnaround. How do they come up with these international fixtures?!

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

          Should be OK to play with new quarantine rules, but he's likely to be shattered from playing in Brazil. Annoying one as he's a great pick

          1. Sun Jihai
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Yeah exactly
            Not sure what the flight time is but playing followed by a long flight would knacker you
            Would be furious if I were Leeds or other team that has Brazilian players

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

        If he plays 3rd Brazil game on 15 October little chance of playing Leeds game on 16 October - but I guess might be some deal agreed that he plays first 2 games and get released by Brazil and get back in time

    6. Cpthavoc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Think this could get on rough with the smooth… I forgot to take the armband off Salah! How can I let the scoutcast guys know?

      1. FourLokoLeipzig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Nice jam! I forgot to take the VC off him… just needed Ronaldo to stay on the bench!

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

          I know, how jammy can you get! Bad luck for you with Ron though..

        Really? Not so sure myself.

      3. Il Capitano

        True

    8. waltzingmatildas

      1 month, 25 days ago

      Second red arrow in row.
      Would you wildcard this? Would probably lose shaw, ayling, christensen(?), benrahma, sarr, gilmour, ronaldo

      Sanchez foster
      Shaw christensen ayling White livra
      Salah raphinha benrahma sarr gilmour
      Ronaldo lukaku antonio

      1. Podge
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I would, probably change Sanche too

      2. gogs67
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Think only 20% of the Top 10K have 3 premiums, best to lose one.

      3. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        A. Son
        B. Cancelo
        C. City midfielder

        Which one would you get first?

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

          B. Spurs fixtures don't turn good for a while (and they're awful).

          Would love a City mid, but who? Doesn't feel like any can be trusted

        2. KDB4PREZ
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          B

        3. Tcheco
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          B

      4. Oooo Matron
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Thoughts on this WC? Think Mane is better pick than Lukaku as mid priced forward s much better than mid priced midfielders.

        Ramsdale
        Trent Cancelo Laporte Rudiger Azpi
        Salah Mane Raphina
        Bamford Jiminez Antonio

        Subs: Douglas Luiz, Livramento, Allan

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

          Mane over Lukaku is something I’m considering myself. I’d go Mbeumo over Azpi though

        2. Podge
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          I like it

        Though Antonio is in the form of his life this season, fixtures turning a bit. What we doing with him: keep or sell?

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

          Keep for now, he's an easy move to another mid pieced forward - Bamford, Jiminez, Toney, etc. I'm shipping Benrahma though.

          1. Echoes
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Good point

        2. Tcheco
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Sold for Vardy when suspended & haven't looked back since. Still a good option, depends who you bring in instead

          1. Echoes
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Playing around with my WC, and looking at Lukaku, Vardy, Jimenez in one of the drafts. Have 0.8 itb too if I need to upgrade Jimmy to Antonio/Dcl/Bamford later.

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

        Besides wait and see what happens during the international matches - any ideas what to do with this team?

        Sánchez
        Shaw, Alonso, TAA, Duffy
        Raphinha, Salah, Fernandes
        Ings, Antonio, Toney

        Steele, Sarr, Gilmour, Amartey
        2 free transfers, 1.4 million in the bank

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          I'm thinking about downgrading Bruno to Grealish/Foden and upgrading Ings to Lukaku.

          1. fc_skrald
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Thanks - good idea!. That might be my moves if not injuries during the international matches.

      8. Tcheco

        Torres due a game now...

          Sold him for Foden 10 mins ago... :/

      9. Inazuma X1

        Any place I can check who took corners in the games played so far??

            • 4 Years

            Thanks but I wanted individual numbers

          1. Inazuma X1
            • 4 Years

            Thanks very useful - CK is corners right?

              Yep, then to the right it has the types of corners.

        Thoughts on WC?

        Ramsdale • Foster
        Trent • Cancelo • Rudiger • White • Livramento
        Salah • Foden • Raph • Mbeumo • Luiz
        Lukaku • Antonio • Jiminez

        Would love to get DCL over Jimmy if fit but don’t have the funds

        1. Tcheco
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          You could do so by downgrading Foden. Jesus in that category as well if you want a City attacker.

      11. Nightcrawler
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Benrahma has been a fail pic since the end of GW 2. Cant believe he has gone up .6

      12. RamaJama

        1 month, 25 days ago

        Which option for -4?

        A) Ronaldo/Greenwood to Lukaku/Foden

        B) White/Greenwood to Cancelo/Doucoure

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Have Jimmy, worth doubling up?

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              I wouldn't

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          B

      13. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        My gut was to do Lukaku to Vardy and decide between him and Salah for cap.

        After not deciding to do the FT I switched Salah cap to Antonio with my gut still saying keep it on Salah.

        My bad GW was not about bad luck, it was down to not following my gut.

        1. Tcheco
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Antonio had the best fixture on paper & Lukaku to Vardy is madness before SOU

          Vardy owner switching to Lukaku after IB

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            With Vardy vs UTD defence?

            Brentford at home is not an easy task. I see another blank, 4th in a row for Lukaku.

      14. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Lukaku with three consecutive blanks. Too patchy to trust with the armband, too expensive not to. If he blanks vs Norwich he’s out.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Not on penalties either.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            Is Jorginho?

        2. Tcheco
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Happy to have survived SOU as a non owner because all my rivals captained him. My heart sank when he hit the post. He's a must own for the next 4 imo

        3. No Kane No Gain
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Wouldn’t be surprised if he was benched V Norwich as a rest

      15. Iceball
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Mbuemo or ESR on WC?

      16. Inazuma X1
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Wow I thought Digne didn't take any corners yet he has taken the highest number of corners?!

      17. Meechoo115

          On WC genuinely thinking Mane over Lukaku now. Liverpool going forward absolutely on fire

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

            Salah, Mane, KDB over Salah, Ronaldo, Lukaku for sure!

          2. Meechoo115
              1 month, 25 days ago

              How is this

              Ramsdale. Foster
              Cancelo. Laporte. Rudi. Trent. Livra
              Salah. Mane. Esr. Foden. Raph
              Armstrong. Antonio. 4.5

              1. Meechoo115
                  1 month, 25 days ago

                  Only issue is means permacap salah

              Who gets more points next week. Cresswell, Livramento or Trent (-4)??

                No-one as none are playing next week 😉

                But probably Livramento

              Which combo?
              A) Foden and Cancelo
              B) Son and 4.6 defender

                Madness to sell Vardy for Lukaku? He has done me well, but worried Lukaku could explode at some point.

                  I’d keep Vardy

                  That's my move for GW8. Obvious (C) in GW9

                    Been the plan. Feels a bit wrong to sell given Vardy's form and Lukakus oposite though.

                    1. Tcheco

                      Fair enough. I could bring him back for GW9 Ronaldo > Vardy easy move

                  I can’t believe I’m saying this but keep Vardy.

                Will greenwood's price drop affect you if you've had him from the start?

                  Thoughts on Greenwood+Semedo to Foden+Cancelo before prices shift?

                      It's a bit early, but if you have strong bench and are ready to risk it, perhaps. Besides price rises the main point being that you can forget this game for two weeks.

                        I have Alonso already so a bit nervous about those 2 picks. Although surely both should be first choice for City now

                              Perhaps Foden over son though

                                Son nailed for 90 mins

                                On corners

                                More explosive

                                Talisman

                            Like the DCL pick, but no Antonio could hurt you. Not sure about Son, but will certainly be a differential.
