    So if Liverpool draw 5-5 and City lose 6-0 we get a playoff

    Best Salah replacement if you own Son(c) already and can't fit more Chelsea.

    1. Keep Salah
    2. Liverpool e.g. Mane or Diaz
    3. KdB
    4. Maddison
    5. Bowen
    6. (-4) Kane Trossard (bench Nketiah)
    7. (-4) Vardy Bowen (bench Nketiah)
