3pm kick-off team news: Jota and Robertson return to Liverpool XI

There are three Premier League matches getting underway at the traditional 3pm kick-off time, including Liverpool v Southampton.

There are no surprises in the Reds’ line-up, with Diogo Jota and Andrew Robertson both returning to the starting XI following midweek benchings. Robertson has not started a match since limping off with a hamstring injury in Scotland’s win over Denmark, while Jota took a knock to the knee in Gameweek 12 and was unused on Wednesday night.

Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Fabinho are also recalled after breathers in the Champions League, with Jurgen Klopp pretty much going full strength based on the players currently at his disposal.

Ralph Hasenhuttl has sprung a tactical surprise, seemingly switching to a wing-back system for the trip to Anfield. Lyanco, Romain Perraud and Armando Broja are brought into the side, with Ibrahima Diallo, Moi Elyounoussi and Kyle Walker-Peters dropping out. Tino Livramento keeps up his ever-present record.

The other two matches this afternoon are Norwich City v Wolverhampton Wanderers and Crystal Palace v Aston Villa.

It’s just one change apiece at Carrow Road, with Josh Sargent replacing the benched Todd Cantwell for the Canaries and Francisco Trincao coming in for the absent Daniel Podence for the visitors.

Like Wolves, Crystal Palace are missing a player we thought was available; Joachim Andersen isn’t part of the squad and is replaced by James Tomkins at centre-half. Michael Olise is also in for Jordan Ayew further forward.

Steven Gerrard’s two changes are in attack, with Emiliano Buendia and Danny Ings replaced by Ashley Young and Leon Bailey.

    3. KAPTAIN KANE

  9. NateDog
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Small win with TAA(C) since i have no Jota, have to hope Sanchez and Trossard help me out now

  10. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Disaster day for my differentials, Wilson, Gallagher and ESR which already means it's a red arrow for me this game week.

    1. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Jimenez ESR and Gallagher for me with no Jota and Mbeumo probably exploding from the bench

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Oh there's no way I have Jota

  11. Cok3y5murf
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Gallagher was basically DM with no runs forward after Eze came on. New buyers have fallen into a massive trap

    1. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      He'll rack up 2 pointers - bank his previous points and run imo.

    2. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      That was the worry I had which is why I avoided, do feel bad for new buyers though, but signs were there even before Eze's return

      1. Nomar
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Same here.

        I felt that if I got him it would be at the end of the gravy train ride, not the start or middle.

        The key now is finding whose going to be the next Gallagher.

      2. FPLrookie2009
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I own VvD,Salah and TAA ,should i do VvD and Gallagher to 5m defender and Jota?

    3. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Reason I went ESR over Gallagher on WC

  12. Pukki Party
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Bus captain stays on Kane until tomorrow at least.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Not Salah?

      1. Pukki Party
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Will probably chicken out lol

  13. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Rage transfer Foden for Jota now? I literally have no other route for Jota and can get Bilva/Gundo in a few weeks if needed

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      There's always another way but it might cost a hit.

    2. Podge
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yeh I done it this morning for -4

    3. rupopo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      There will be another route. I've got no Spurs, cos Kane and Son take up so much budget and yet to get the big points. Means I can get all the other players I want though..

  14. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Jota. Salah(c). Trent. Gallagher. Red arrow hmm.

    That just the Arsenal defence?

    1. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Same here. This surprises me a little.

    2. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Same, and yes. You have arond -4 points on Ramsdale only.

      1. Nanoelektronicar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Arsenal are -6.59 points for me.

    3. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Arsenal added 6.59 to top 10K

    4. F4L
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      yeah White/Ramsdale

    5. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I don't have Jota, all my rivals do plus Ramsdale White, I'm fooked now Wilson Gallagher ESR blanked

    6. Podge
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Ramsdale mainly but some white and Saka, you sure it’s red ?

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yeah. 37k >> 39k. White first sub 🙁 I hate Newcastle

  15. F4L
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Had Guaita since GW4 and he's done his job well but Ramsdale is different gravy; if you had no pressing issues whatsoever it's worth the switch isn't it?

    1. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Owner here. I would. Unfortunately I have to do Chilwell to Alonso/Rudi this GW

      1. F4L
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        cheers. tbf this week isn't ideal with United away, Chilwell to Alonso/Rudi would be a better use of the FT

        1. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Yeah need to follow the template. Ramsdale an example, what a boring season

  16. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Brought Jota in on my WC and he blanked in 5 of 6 games then got benched so I sold..... the next week Firmino gets injured, my rival brings Jota in and he scores four goals in five games!

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Moral of the story?

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        It's all luck

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          You could have got Jota back, at least this GW.

          1. Super Saints
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            I had Chilwell of course so Jota would have been a -8, Jota has actually been quite poor last three too plus couldn't sell ESR or Gallagher with those fixtures.

            1. TorresMagic™
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 12 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Jota was essential this GW and you went without. Norwich scored 2 vs S'ton. Villa can now defend.

              1. NABIL - FPL otai
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                This. Fwiw I left Chilwell on bench and bought Jota for a hit

              2. Super Saints
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                Lol essential what the hell, people on here are nuts after a player scores

                1. TorresMagic™
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • Has Moderation Rights
                  • 12 Years
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  Well if you include the Arsenal game, sure. Should have scored more vs Arsenal too.

        2. No Need
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          It is all luck so no point beating yourself up

      2. Echoes
        • 1 Year

        Life is a tragedy

      3. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Buy Jota when it makes sense to do so.

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Sounds right.

          1. Super Saints
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Jota scored in his first two games then had the below teams, don't be a captain hindsight, no-one would have him if Firmino hadn't got injured, I had him before that and it's just been unlucky I've had so many injuries since so couldnt get him back.

            1. Top Mark.S
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              You must have a pretty low rank every year with your highly consistent bad luck

        2. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Leeds Palace Brentford Watford in those games I had him for... It's nothing but luck, don't kid yourself

      4. NABIL - FPL otai
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Some people got cursed

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Please don’t buy Jota

    3. Shark
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I sold Mane this week for him. It's all about timing and good fortune, erm, unfortunately.

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        You sold Mane for Jota? Lol

    4. rupopo

      You are nothing if not consistent SS 😀

      I do hope one day you post something when you feel you are not riddled with bad luck!

      Out of interest, can you share your team ID? Or at least your OR?

  17. No Need
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Come on Mark have a word one more point for Jota in the countback

    1. F4L
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Robertson did it on purpose with that enticing cross that was just a bit too far in front of Jota, sabotage

      1. No Need
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yeah and nobody has him either so he ought to lose one

      2. NABIL - FPL otai
