Liverpool players were highly targeted during FPL Gameweek 25 as they rattled in a combined eight goals in two games against Brentford and Luton Town.

However, a number of Jurgen Klopp's troops have been downed by injuries in recent weeks, with Diogo Jota out for months and concerns also lingering over Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah.

With the Reds in Carabao Cup action this weekend when they face Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday, now is the natural time to transfer them out and scour the market for new signings.

With help from Fantasy Football Hub's powerful AI Points Predictions tool, here are the best replacements for Liverpool players in FPL Gameweek 26.

Ivan Toney

  • Fixture: West Ham (A); Predicted Points: 5.5

Brentford's Ivan Toney remains a great long-term option in FPL, with fixtures in Blank Gameweek 26 and Blank Gameweek 29. The England striker is a top addition to forward lines in a 3-4-3 formation, with four goals in the last five gameweeks.

Toney sits top for big chances on goal in the last four gameweeks with eight and is the Bees' primary penalty taker. It's a good time to play West Ham, who are without a win in their last six Premier League games, conceding 12 goals in that time.

Alejandro Garnacho

  • Fixture: Fulham (H); Predicted Points: 5.3

Manchester United's Alejandro Garnacho remains a differential asset in FPL and a budget midfielder at just £5m. He's got the recent form, with three attacking returns in the last four gameweeks.

The Argentinian's underlying numbers showcase his routes to points, having had 12 shots on goal and made 12 key passes over the last four gameweeks. Opponents Fulham haven't kept a clean sheet away from home since September.

Hwang Hee-chan

  • Fixture: Sheffield United (H); Predicted Points: 5.2

Another option to consider in midfield as a replacement for the injured Jota is Wolves winger Hwang Hee-chan, who returned from the Asian Cup to start the win at Tottenham.

He has 13 goal involvements this season and the most appetising fixture of the weekend at home to Sheffield United, who have kept just one clean sheet all season and conceded a league high 65 goals. Hwang is currently in fewer than 5% of fantasy teams, highlighting his differential potential.
