For Liverpool, Sadio Mane (£11.9m) drops to the bench with Joel Matip (£5.0m).

As a result, Diogo Jota (£7.5m) starts in attack alongside Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) and Roberto Firmino (£8.9m), while Ibrahima Konate (£5.1m) partners Virgil van Dijk (£6.6m) in defence.

    Everybody's getting a goal and an assist today, evidently. Trent's turn, please.

    There is no need for Utd. to return for the 2nd half, just go home.

      Fair play, imagine if you’d have gone Mount over KDB this week. Could have won the game week…

  8. KAPTAIN KANE

    I actually genuinely believe I’d have defended more effectively in that United defense in that first half

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      They are doing it on purpose surely

      1. KAPTAIN KANE

    Too bad the ref doesn't have the power to stop the match like in boxing.

  13. Ady87

  18. Little Red Lacazette
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

  19. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Rival has Jota, I have Ronaldo

    I've even broken the GOAT 2, 1, 2, 0

    The curse is real

  23. Rainer

    Hopefully Salah gets subbed cause the predator and he's team mates only have one mission now...

  24. Manani
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    did Jota + Lukaku > Havertz + Vardy
    looked such a great move on paper, but losing so many points (and also FT as well if Vardy is injured)

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Aye lost Jota as well for havertz but still made sense at the time.

  25. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Ole gone ?

    1. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Ole rushed out of OT at half time to a safe house.

  26. Warblers Fear Satan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Salah, true class. CR7, petulant old man.

  27. Randaxus
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I predicted Liverpool 4 Manchester United 2

      1. Dthinger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        I would happily trade my TAA clean sheet for a goal from Ronaldo

    • Wild Guus Chase
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      What do Forest and Man U have in common? They’ve both been shambolic at the back and had four put past them today!

    • Echoes
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Vardy cap with ESR first sub and no Mount, Foden, Chilly. Huge red arrow incoming.

    • tiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Give it Giggsy til the end of the match...
