    I'd say he would have given it up anyway. I don't think he would see the Champions League goal as being any lesser in the way that us FPL heads would see it.

    Imagine the collective uproar if he'd given Saturday evening's one up.

    Or if Rashford took on the retaken penalty and scored. I think I'd have retired in disgust :D

    Should be a rule that any penalty retaken has to be be taken by the same player. can't remember what game it was where it was changed for the retake.

    XI | Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Mendy, Gundogan, Rodrigo, Foden, Bernardo, Sterling (C), Jesus

    SUBS | Steffen, Carson, Aguero, Zinchenko, Laporte, Torres, Fernandinho, Mahrez, Garcia, Nmecha, Doyle, Palmer

    Not too pleased at seeing Cancelo in the line up. Was strongly considering him for the weekend.

    If Aguero puts in an appearance tonight, I may bring him in.

    It was Palace, Zaha took the retake. Can’t remember who missed the first.

    Jordan Ayew. It was during the 3-1 win over Man United.

    Given he was married to Maradona’s daughter (and they have a son together), is there any risk of him taking a few days compassionate leave for the funeral?

    There’s a chance, but I think when you see the likes of Aurier playing the day after his young brother was murdered, the chance is high of him playing on Saturday if fit.

    His fitness would be the bigger question still for me.

    Looking forward to the UK commentators trying to pronounce Kelleher's first name.

    Doubtful that Kelleher is ahead of Adrian, although it is a strange game to give him, unless Adrian isn't fully fit, and Klopp is afraid that Adrian gets injured and he's down to bear bones for the league.

    If Kelleher does well tonight, he might keep his place. He surely can't be any worse than Adrian.

    Think Kelleher was picked as Adrian is ****e. If he does well tonight, he'll most likely replace Adrian as number 2
