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

    Sanchez
    TAA - Cancelo - Rüdiger - White
    Salah - Jota - Raphinha - Gray
    Ronaldo - Lukaku

    (Steele - Livramento - McArthur - Scarlett) - 0 FT

    Cheers!

      I’m off the Ronaldo/Lukaku bandwagon. Its one or the other and for next few weeks that means Lukaku.

    If it was not for Son, Spurs would be relegation candidates.

    I need to get him.

    7 Gameweeks.

    5 Red arrows, 1 Green.

      You have to get rid of both Lukaku and Ronaldo to turn your rank around.

      I have had both for the last 3 GW's and a pityful 15 points from both.

      I have already ditched Ronaldo, Lukaku is next.

        Think you're 100% right.

        1. FOO FIGHTER

          Nice rank though but as you can see your GW points is in a terrible very bad decline.

        They wont blank forever. Having at least one of them is important

        1. FOO FIGHTER

          Points are important.

          Many would choose Grealish over Gray, Doucoure or Townsend.

          Having two of these EVE will get you points on a regular basis compared to fitting in blanking Grealish at the expense of TAA.

    Buying Salah finally, to do I need to save 0.3 elsewhere. So which move?

    A) Benrahma to max 6.3 mid (Gray?)
    B Sarr to max 5.8 mid (Gray?)
    C) Alonso to max 5.5 def
    D) Shaw to max 5.1 def

    Thanks

      Just wait before making any transfer. I made early transfers last week which caused me 5 points.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE

        Oh good so no price changes then?

        1. jackruet
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 3 days ago

          I did early transfer because of price changes. At the end of the day point is what matters most, not team value

    2. FOO FIGHTER

      Alonso or Shaw to Pinnock.

      Brentford looking solid and would not surprise me if they kept a cleanie at home vs CHE GW8 plus you will have cash in the bank for other moves.

      1. Bushwhacker

        2 months, 3 days ago

        Brentford look solid. That is a new one.

    3. THFC4LIFE

      A to Saka if fit or B to Mbeumo

    4. Pep bites Kun

      D: Better value at that price tag.
