Southampton v Liverpool team news: Klopp decimates Fantasy squads

Liverpool travel to Southampton this evening knowing Manchester City will be champions if they lose.

Kick-off at St Mary’s Stadium is at 19:45 BST.

Jurgen Klopp has ripped up his usual team-sheet and makes nine changes from the side that started Saturday’s FA Cup final win over Chelsea.

Alisson and Ibrahima Konate are the only players who keep their place in the starting XI, which features Takumi Minamino, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino as the front-three.

Andrew Robertson and Luis Diaz are substitutes, while Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are not in the squad.

Ralph Hasenhuttl, meanwhile, makes five changes.

Alex McCarthy comes in for the injured Fraser Forster, while there are also starts for Lyanco, Jack Stephens, Mohamed Elyounoussi and Nathan Tella.

    Why does Tsimikas look so tired? He rarely plays.

    1. ᴋiɴɢ
      • 4 Years

      Can't last longer than 70mins is one of his issues

    2. No Need

      60 fags a day

    3. The Units

      Still recovering from scoring that penalty.

    4. Royal5

      2 months, 22 days ago

      Exactly. Should be in bed by now.

    5. Utopsis

      Not match fit

    6. Bonus magnet

      Let’s be honest that’s pretty hard

  2. Brehmeren

    Does this mean that none of the trolls on here get Klopp's job even though they are all super experts?

  3. GoonerGirl

    That thing where the guy you took out on a FH scores a goal...

    1. BUZZBOMB
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Yes but we'd all do the same again. And again.

    2. No Need
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      You have around 30 free hit circulators all week

    Matip owners are a bunch of jammy a holes

    1. Monklane
      • 13 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Not really. I anticipated TAA not playing and brought him in.
      Seems like a good move to me.

    2. Cheeky Onion
      • 4 Years

        What a second half to the season Matip has had

        1. No Need
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          He better have some points left in 38

          1. User Unknown
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            He’d better play, full stop

      3. ᴋiɴɢ

      5. Pia06rc

        2 months, 22 days ago

        Is the following worth a -4 for GW38

        TAA + Rodrigo —> Tsimikas + Kane

        Would give me

        Pickford
        Tsimikas James Laporte
        Zaha KDB Foden Son
        Kane Toney Nketiah

        White Gordon Cash

        1. jason_ni

      6. No Need
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        This is a joke its like a non league side utter shambles get on Soton to drop next year

        1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Them and Wolves have been horrendous, how they’ve accumulated enough points to survive has skipped my memory!

          1. NorCal Villan
              2 months, 22 days ago

              Getting to play Villa helped each cause

          2. THE SHEEP HUNTERS
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Saints will survive as usual, like a crusty Gloria Gaynor clingon.

            1. NorCal Villan
                2 months, 22 days ago

                crusty Gloria Gaynor clingon

                That’s punk rock AF

            2. Haalander
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 22 days ago

              It’s certainly mae me realise I need two Leicester for 38

          3. jonnybhoy
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Which one ?

            A) Kane + Son -8pts
            B) Son + Bowen -4pts

            1. Bonus magnet
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              The latter

          4. George James
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Best punt for GW38?

            A) Foden

            B) Mount

            C) Maddison

            1. jonnybhoy
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              B

            2. Cheeky Onion
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              Between C & B - both teams should be amongst the goals so just have to hope you pick the right horse

            3. Tsssst
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              D) IAZ

              • 7 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              Cheers all. Yes Diaz is a shout

            5. Haalander

                  2 months, 22 days ago

                  Sorry yes c Maddison! I’m even contemplating swapping Kane to vardy after watching that muck

          5. Zim0
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            I have a question. How did Barnsley get from almost being in the Premier league to relegated from the championship the very next season?

          6. No Need
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            90 for Jota get your blanket ready for Sunday fella

            Haul by Broja’s standards

          8. Finding Timo
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Play A) sa (liv) or b) foster or use Ft to replace?

          9. No Need
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Lyanco stealing a wage as s PL defender

          10. JBG
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            This certainly means that Diaz starts Sunday, right?

            1. No Need
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              Full strength bar injuries id say but maybe reduced minutes for several

              2 months, 22 days ago

              Not a guarantee. Could be Salah, Mane & Jota/Firmino. Probably more likely Dias plays than Salah though.

            This is frustrating as jota owner lol.

            Yesss Robbo stays on the bench. Sweet sweet 11 point bench jam from Ait-Nouri.

            1. NorCal Villan
                2 months, 22 days ago

                Nice! In same boat but getting Matip. My wife started Ait-Nouri this week

                Nice one. Matip on for an 11 pointer too with bonus

                If still injured or expected to be on the bench he will go for Son.

                1. Finding Timo

              • 1 Year
              2 months, 22 days ago

              Getting Jota on FH feels like a massive waste in hindsight. If there was any inkling that Klopp would rotate anywhere near as much as this I would have just punted on a doubler

              1. No Need
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 22 days ago

                You got 90 against total garbage Pool just very wasteful even minus the names

                Yeah yeah, we're all feeling your pain. Many like myself went Diaz so dry your eyes fella.

            4. Tsssst
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              Those with Jota not on FH, we're shifting him out for GW38 right?

            5. No Need

              • 6 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              Who is more essential for GW38:

              1. Kane [have Son]
              2. KDB [have Cancelo]

              1. FCSB
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 22 days ago

                Kane route is (-4)*

                  Even for the -4 ?

                    • 5 Years

                        2 months, 22 days ago

                        I think if you decide to get him for a hit, best to try and warrant it is captain.

                        The way I see it is it’s Norwich

                        1. FCSB
                          • 6 Years
                          2 months, 22 days ago

                          That’s a dilemma for another day haha

                          I think I’ve made my choice with Kane though

                  2 months, 22 days ago

                  Defo can’t say defo. KDB could very well do well against Villa.

              Stumbled on an fpl account on twitter today and just have to shout him out purley for his avatar/logo.

              Its genius, he's called fpl eire (Irish for ireland)
              I had to go and look at the official logo when I saw it.

                  2 months, 22 days ago

                  Lol, i know right, I've got no idea how he stumbled on it.

                  Looking at the logo sideways and it just hit him maybe.
