Liverpool host Everton in a crucial Merseyside derby at Anfield on Saturday night – and Trent Alexander-Arnold's FPL team suggests the Reds are ready to do damage.
Jurgen Klopp's side have lost three straight games in the Premier League, but they will hope Tuesday's 2-0 win over RB Leipzig in the Champions League has turned their form around.
The visit of arch-rivals Everton in Saturday's late kick-off provides the perfect opportunity for them to return to winning ways in the league, as well as claim a first victory at Anfield in over two months.
And heading into the game, Alexander-Arnold clearly has faith in Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to come up with the goods.
That's because the Liverpool right-back has included both players in his Fantasy Football side for Gameweek 25 – with Salah also his captain choice for the latest round of fixtures.
He has also selected himself in defence, which indicates a confidence in keeping a clean sheet against Carlo Ancelotti's men on Saturday evening.
Andy Robertson has also included himself at the back in his own FPL team this Gameweek, although the Scot has not found room for any of his Reds colleagues.
Neither Alexander-Arnold or Robertson have any Everton players in their XIs, with all their hopes resting on picking up a much-needed win and clean sheet against the Toffees.

The two Merseyside foes were held to a 2-2 draw when they last met back in September, but for Liverpool it felt more like a defeat when Jordan Pickford's heavy challenge on Virgil van Dijk handed the Dutchman a season-ending ACL injury.
Nevertheless, Klopp has played down talk of any retribution for that tackle when they meet again this weekend.
“We are all human beings and of course it was not nice, but now it is long gone. Nothing will be carried over. We just don't think about that any more.
“But it is still a derby and that is enough to be motivated on the absolutely highest level, and trying to play the best possible football you can play. That’s it pretty much."
