Mane, Matip and Pogba benched as Man Utd host Liverpool in Gameweek 9

In the final match of Gameweek 9, Manchester United host Liverpool in a mouth-watering clash at Old Trafford.

Kick-off is at 16:30 BST.

Manchester United make three changes from Gameweek 8, with Marcus Rashford (£9.4m), Fred (£4.9m) and Scott McTominay (£5.4m) replacing Nemanja Matic (£4.5m), Paul Pogba (£7.6m) and Jadon Sancho (£9.0m).

Bruno Fernandes (£11.8m) also starts despite heading into the game as a doubt.

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.

Curtis Jones (£5.0m) is a substitute having missed the last two games with a groin injury, but Fabinho (£5.4m) and Thiago (£5.3m) miss out completely.

    Thankfully Greenwood to Havertz didn't punish me too much.

    Let’s take a minute to appreciate Antonio = what a beast and he looks like Aguero in the box!

    My Greenwood > Raphinha transfer this week didn't make any difference at all

    Hopefully Man united will show up on second half. Liverpool main guys get me points, but most other FPL players have them also, so overall rank might not chamge so much if only Liverpool plays on second half as well. 🙂

      What?

      1. Hiiler

        1 month, 9 days ago

        Score wise it seems as in the first half Man united players weren't on the pitch at all.

    Greenwood was United’s only chance of scoring and he gets subbed 😀 Ole really has given up
