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.

    Wow. Never seen supporters not applaud an player on a stretcher off the field. United fans are just horrid.

      Some did…

      1. Bushwhacker

        Very few with class.

      But agree

      I think they can be forgiven under the circumstances. They are in shock

      Wow, you never seen that? I remember being at the game where Brighton supporters clapped of Glenn Murray being stretchered off for us many years back vs them (before he joined them)

    Need some more TAA returns

    it's just sad to see great talent being taken out of the game again and again by shabby cockroaches.
    Players like Pogba are not even worth the dirt on the kitchen floor.

    1. Egg noodle
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Im quite an ABU myself but this is uncalled for

    2. Sim Simma
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      A bit too harsh, calm down

      1. Djokovic Airlines
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        calm down? This is just sick. It's sick to see thugs like Pogba or Ronaldo trying to get away with assault and destroying careers.
        It's just sick that a player leaves the pitch seriously injured and the opposition fans in the stadium laugh, don't clap and don't pay respect.

        1. Ginkapo FPL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          Yes. Calm down. Go take a break and get a cup of tea

          1. Djokovic Airlines
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 1 day ago

            nah I won't. It just makes me sick. Pogba will be back after 3 games, Naby won't.

        ESR is a legit 7th attacker.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          I know. I've got 8 mids and strikers I want to play, and 5 defenders. Wish I could BB every week!

    3. fylde2022
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Don't forget the extra 6 points if you © Salah.

    4. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode

    7. Dammit_182
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 1 day ago

      I know. Even though everyone else has salah captain it still feels better having a bad game week on 80+ Points given all the hauls from payers I don’t own this week.

  7. TheTinman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    You don't hear from the No Salah league very much these days

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Error404

    2. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      All their second teams are probably doing well.

  8. Rainer

    The protest starting early.

    Glazers out!

    1. Scholes Out For Summer

      *ole

    2. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      The Glazers cant sell. The club isnt worth more than the clubs debt

    3. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
      • 9 Years

      Great stuff!

  9. JJO
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    When the f will they start giving 10-15 games ban for starts like this?

  10. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    To think I was opting for Vardy instead of Salah for (C)

    1. fylde2022
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Salah is on fire this season. Stick with the stats. Don't try to be clever.

  11. Ze_Austin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Keita was purring 🙁

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Probably out for months because of Petulant Pogba

    2. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Yes, one of the unluckiest player ever at LFC. As soon as he finds some form, he gets injured.

  12. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    One more goal Salah, please.

  13. Duke Silver ☑
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Ronaldo and Cavani up top and down to 10 men. Yeah this ain't ending 5-0 😆

  14. Little Red Lacazette
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    More Jota & TAA returns.

  15. Hy liverpool
    • 8 Years

    • 7 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    How many Man Utd fans walking out?! FFS! How they handle supporting one of the lesser sides in the Prem or lower divisions?!

    1. Hairy Potter
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      *How would they handle

  18. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Neville backing Ole and rightly so!

  19. SHOOTER MCGINN

  20. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Unpopular opinion but Ole should stay as a man manger which he is decent at (support staff) but United should sign a new head coach

    1. ZeBestee
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      He won't accept being demoted.

  21. Rainer

    Paul Scholes might suck his daughters toes but he knew this beating was coming.

  22. TOBY1
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Did Pogba get sent off at like 59:59 or something?

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Came on at half time
