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.

    Having such a template team, I find myself more engaged with not wanting other players to get points (e.g. palace players), than my own team getting points. Weirdly I think that also has more of an affect on my rank..

      2. G B
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        You'd have to ditch Salah or Jota.

        So no, not yet imo.

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Let's go Jimenez!

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

        Only winners are the ones not watching probably.

    • Camzy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Lovely Villa goal. Sweeping move and great finish from outside the box by McGinn.

      Bloody hell, Gerrard might actually be the real deal.

    • AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Do you reckon Salah has made it clear he wants the golden boot to Klopp and the last 5 mins are fertile hunting grounds?

    • TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      Palace xGC on the decline.

    • Tomerick
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Starting to think Norwich might not be a fixture to target any more.

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

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

            Agreed and maybe throw Leeds into the mix

    • Rainer

      Salah close to corner flag.

      Decline!

    • NABIL - FPL otai

      Guilty-a 🙁

    • PartyTime
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Salah blank confirmed

        1. Salah’s Sonnet
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          He got an assist

        2. diesel001
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          He got an assist.

        3. Tomerick
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Did anyone mention he got an assist?

        4. ilikewud
          • 1 Year

          What?

        14 feels like a fail from Jota...

        1. JONALDINHO
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          So did the 8 last week

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

            Owners so unlucky:(

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

        Why does Klopp never take Salah off for a rest?

        1. JONALDINHO
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Naturally fit player. Jota, Thiago, Henderson need the rest more

        2. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

      • Mbeumo's Post: 7✅
        • 10 Years

        So, Palace fail to win in all 6 games Milivojevic starting this season

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Vieira are you listening?

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 12 Years

          1st loss though.

        3. Tomerick
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Also dampens gallagher’s appeal

      • JBG
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I feel bad for anyone who paid to watch Norwich v Wolves.
