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.

      136 points. What a week! Makes it all worthwhile when it all comes together! Salah (c), mount, foden, tonio, livra. Rank up from 700k to 96k

          Gone from 25k to 391k, absolute mare! Cancelo, Azpi, Havertz(c), Vardy, Tierney

          WC activated.

          Surprised listening to the radio that they're surprised by the manner of this result. Could see it coming a mile away.

          That's my Ronaldo > Kane transfer sorted.
          A nice-placeholder for Lukaku or Ronaldo himself if Ole is sacked come GW13 or GW14

        • have you seen cyan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Liverpool are a scary team to face

        • KAPTAIN KANE
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Kane and Son facing this lot next week 😎

          Get on the wagon whilst it’s hot

        • Cok3y5murf
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Ronaldo could ask Salah for his shirt.

        • Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Not even 3 digits this GW. Failure.

            yeah same, not getting 100 when your captain gets 48 alone is frustrating lol

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

          Ronaldo has a goal dissalowed and misses a sitter, what a surprise, the bad luck continues

          No Roy Keane in the studio is so so so disappointing

        • TheBiffas
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 27 days ago

          88 points, red arrow.

          Wow regained my 32 pts I lost to rivals Foden capt with my Salah capt. Happy days.

        • Scholes Out For Summer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Omobamidele --> Cancelo or Gallagher --> Foden?

          Both Omo and Gallagher would be on the bench, currently playing White who would be replaced by either City boys

        • F4L
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          I know there aren't many Mane owners, but time to shift? Would be fine with the odd benching but if Klopp is just going to rotate Firmino/Jota/Mane to keep them all happy then I'd sell

        • TomSaints
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          78 points with Aubameyang (c). Would have been 96 with Salah so still pretty poor by standards on here.

          I had a big green arrow before Liverpool game, just shows how much one game can change and how good they are!

        • Eh, just one more thing ...
