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.

    I don’t believe this.

    All progress this week ruined by not captaining Salah

    1. TomSaints
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      80% green arrow to 14% and it’s not half time

    2. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      It was always going to be risky not captaining Salah

      High risk, potential high reward going against the default captain option for the week. Bad luck overtimes, sometimes works sometimes doesn't

        Away at united just didn’t seem a high scoring game…

    Hoping for Salah to have a quiet one is not a good place to be.

      They need to price hike him immediately to minimum 15m to make the game interesting again

        2 months, 23 days ago

        No. Shush. Some of the prices are mental enough as it is.
