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?

          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!

                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

                      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?

                              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

                              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!

                                      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

                                                  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

                                              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!

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

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