Dugout Discussion – Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur

Double Gameweek 37 finally comes to an end this evening as Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur go head-to-head at the King Power Stadium at 7.45pm.

After grabbing his side’s second in Sunday’s win over Man United, Harry Kane is now just two goals behind Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot.

Having returned eight goals and three assists in his last seven starts, the Spurs striker has been handed the armband by 5.5% of FPL managers – more than any player in tonight’s encounter.

For Christian Eriksen’s 18% FPL owners, the Double Gameweek serves up one final twist – the Dane drops to the bench tonight after earning eight points against United last weekend.

Elsewhere for the visitors, Dele Alli starts as he looks to arrest a run of one goal in his previous four – the midfielder was transferred out by 56,000 FPL managers ahead of Tottenham’s pair of fixtures.

The hosts’ Jamie Vardy is the eighth most popular armband pick (2.4%) of Double Gameweek 37 on the back of seven goals and five assists in 11 appearances since Craig Shakespeare took the helm.

Meanwhile, Foxes wide man Marc Albrighton has flourished as a budget asset across that period, producing two goals and five assists in 10 outings under the new man in charge.

    I need some thoughts.
    Going into GW 38 I'll be 16 points clear at the top of my ml. The players in caps are common bw me and him. The one in brackets are his alternates.

    Heaton
    Jagielka (Luiz) Mee (Stephens) Bavies (Holding)
    SANCHEZ Sane(Son) ALLI Coutinho(KdB) KING
    Costa(Kane) JESUS

    I'm trying to block him out by doing
    Jagielka -> Luiz
    Mee -> Stephens
    and
    Alli + Gabbi -> Stanislas + Kane

    I'll be taking a -12 if i do this. Is it worth the risk?

    1. UDTHEGOONER

      Heaton (Caballero)

      same boat as me but I'm 12pts up. No need for the big hit!! why make the gap 4 points? even if you block him he chooses a different captain you could lose. Team is actually really tidy and would just consider Jagielka to liverpool or chels defender!

      1. UDTHEGOONER

        My defence is horrible for 38. I have Jags, Daniels, Bavies, Robertson and injured Mee. Besides Bavies, none are likely to get points. And I don't have Kane and he does (which is why I have to do all this in the first place).

    180 points later I've cut a 95point gap into a 10 point lead! all to play for in GW38

    Chasing 20 pts.Do you think i can make it?

    1. TheGloriousViking

      I'm going to lift something. Am I strong enough?

  5. The Big Fella

    So, I have a dilemma. I have 2 FT and I want to get rid of Hazard (troll) and Gabbi (gash) but I also reckon Alli will be benched next game and I am not 100% Alonso will start. My bench is Capoue, Stephens and Holgate. Stephens is fine, he can come on for one of Alli or Alonso. So, do I take a -4 and transfer Alli out or keep one of Hazard and Gabbi or just see if Alli plays or not?

    Does anybody think Poch looks like the Salt Bae meme that was doing the rounds earlier this year?

    Last 5 GWs are something to be proud of. Shame about the rest of the season.

      Been a shock to my ML rivals, but only secured 2nd unfortunately. Still been enjoyable to take calculated risks. I'll do the same next season

        Well played! No fun in chasing safe is there?

    Got lucky with a 211 points and sitting at rank 99 for game week. FPL goodies bag is given out only for the top 20 right? They should have given it to top 100 and still attract millions of players!

    1. Final Fantasy XI
      6 months, 27 days ago

      What's in the goodie bag?

      1. Don Look Back in Wenger
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Prices wise it's not much but FPL wise it's a free extra wc & another ur choice of chips next season,

        😀 oh and also some t shirt, stress ball and FPL notebook. Would've kept em in a glass box and frame my FPL team for the kids to see

        1. The Big Fella
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Is that true? 3 WC and another choice of chips?!!?

          1. Don Look Back in Wenger
            6 months, 27 days ago

            nah twas a joke. stress ball is true though. ah and a Fifa2017

            1. The Big Fella
              6 months, 27 days ago

              Gutted. I'd prefer the WC and extra chip than the game and the stress ball. If I beat all my mates at FPL I'll have no stress and can buy the game with the winnings from my cash leagues 😉

      Nice effort man! Great way of spreading the budget to each and every corner off your team.
      Well played! True about the goodie bag, general prizes are rubbish in this game, given the amount of money wishy-washín around the premier league

      I think he should join the party for Saturday's game's.
      I'm defo keeping him

    Had a really poor season this year but this week really really happy...208 points.

    If I would of pressed the button on hazard to coutinho I think I would of equalled the top score.

    GW24 I was languishing in nearly 1,300,000 now I'm close to 100,000 with a good couple of weeks behind me....my weakness is defence and captain choices usually...but can't complain this week!

    1. Red Card Rockets

      Nice. My weakness to is cap choice.

    2. LE GOD-HunGaryNeville(C)

      Epic gw score congrats

  12. Red Card Rockets

    Do we think we can see a full season of Kane without injuries? That would be nice.

  13. BigPedro
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Hazard or Eriksen > Coutinho? Eriksen should be nailed on to start, but selling Hazard ahead of Sunderland still doesn't sit right.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      LALLANA

      Who to get rid of for Coutinho, Hazard or Eriksen?

      1. poulteren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 months, 27 days ago

        swapped hazard for cout

  18. Pariße
    6 months, 27 days ago

    2 FTs and I can't touch Hazard, because he might play and hurt me, can't get anyone decent for other players I'd be willing to sell, because they're too cheap, only thing left is a sideways move in the defence and even that isn't the smartest of moves since GW38 has a history of big scores.

  19. jimmy12

    Worth doing?

    Costa + Gabbi > Kane + Vokes
