Emotional afternoon ahead as Leicester travel to Cardiff City

The attention of the football world will be on the Cardiff City Stadium this afternoon as Leicester City play their first match since the tragic passing of chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

Talismanic striker Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) returns to the starting line-up after featuring as a second-half substitute against West Ham in Gameweek 10. Meanwhile James Maddison (£7.0m) appears to be deployed just behind him in a 4-4-1-1 formation.

Meanwhile, midfielder Callum Paterson (£5.2m) starts a fourth successive match as the centre-forward for Cardiff.

Likewise, Richarlison (£6.8m) is used up front for Everton, extending his run of games in that position to four in a row. Bernard (£5.9m), Theo Walcott (£6.4m) and Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.5m) remain the attacking midfield trio behind the Brazilian.

Marko Arnautovic (£7.0m) returns to the West Ham team after missing out on Gameweek 10 with an illness. Matej Vydra (£5.8m) has been named in the Burnley side to face the Hammers for the fist time since Gameweek 7.

Everybody’s new favourite budget striker Isaac Success (£4.6m) was on the Watford teamsheet for the third match in a row, furthering his appeal.

CARDIFF CITY XI: Etheridge; Bennett, Bamba, Morrison, Ecuele Manga; Arter, Gunnarsson; Murphy, Reid, Camarasa; Paterson

LEICESTER CITY XI: Schmeichel; Chilwell, Morgan, Maguire, R Pereira; Albrighton, Mendy, Ndidi, Gray; Maddison; Vardy

EVERTON XI: Pickford, Coleman, Zouma, Keane, Digne, Gueye, Gomes, Walcott, Sigurdsson, Bernard, Richarlison

BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION XI: Ryan, Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bong, Stephens, Kayal, March, Jahanbakhsh, Izquierdo, Murray

NEWCASTLE UNITED XI: Dubravka, Dummett, Lascelles, Fernandez, Yedlin, Diame, Shelvey, Ritchie, Muto, Kenedy, Rondon

WATFORD XI: Foster, Femenia, Mariappa, Cathcart, Holebas, Doucoure, Capoue, Hughes, Deulofeu, Pereyra, Success

WEST HAM UNITED XI: Fabianski, Zabaleta, Rice, Diop, Cresswell, Balbuena, Obiang, Snodgrass, Diangana, Anderson, Arnautovic

BURNLEY XI: Hart, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Defour, Westwood, Gudmundsson, Lennon, Vydra, Vokes

        Imagine what will happen when Richarlison gets the hang of this OOP lark.

      Can't see myself captaining Aguero in the next 5 so contemplating selling for Wilson and going Mané for Maddison.

      Watched Leicester game instead of Everton. How did Richarlison look? Two goals is a great sign.

      1. FULHAM 4 LIFE

        very involved, took the goals brilliantly.

      Is not owning Richarlison this week going to be a rank killer? I have Chilwell and Arnie

      1. MTPockets
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        You got Arnie's pinball assist, so should be pleased.

        1. BDA Shadow
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Arny was robbed two other assists after brilliant plays and poor finishing as well as a few great saves from Hart. He deserved every bit of his points today, not luck.

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            No goals were actually scored so hardly robbed of assists, I see this comment regularly I can’t get my head around the concept 🙂

            1. BDA Shadow
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 20 days ago

              Basically, he deserved points for doing something far more impressive than a lot of other assisters who make a simple pass or just happen to be the last person to touch the ball before a wonder strike etc.. in my opinion. I think assist points are flawed, being that big chances created count of nothing. But that's just the way the game is and we all know that from the start.

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                2 months, 20 days ago

                I understand that he did some good things, but it is not as if a perfectly good goal was incorrectly disallowed that he would have had the assist for, now that is robbed of an assist ... still can’t get my head people complaining about not getting an assist when there is no actual goal ... but hey ho, each to their own 🙂

                1. BDA Shadow
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 20 days ago

                  Poor choice of words by the letter of the laws I supposed. Not robbed in the sense you have in mind, but let down by the points system.
                  There's that aspect, but it's usually more complaining about a poor finish than the rules. It always feels like the payers you don't have get assist for wonder goals, and the players you have miss out on assists from missed tap-ins.

                    I know I am being pedantic, sorry 🙂

                    I think it’s just the phrase bar I see it a lot, I understand saying something like ‘player x has messed up an assist for Arnie’, but robbed suggests an entitlement, but I know what you mean 🙂

                    1. BDA Shadow
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 20 days ago

                      A good talking point nonetheless. Enjoy the rest of the games today!

                      2 months, 20 days ago

                      Now in a true sense of robbery, they're saying Mane's goal should have stood 😉 just can't win today lol

                        • 3 Years
                        2 months, 20 days ago

                        Very much robberd given Diangana's first half penalty wasn't given. At the very least.

        Is a case today of those that own Arnie/Richarlison and those that don't?

          Disater of transfers this week

          I did
          Pereira out Duffy in
          Wilson out Vardy in for a -4

          That cost me 12 points at least I am set up nicely for next week though

          Might use both FT to downgrade Ryan to 4.0m and upgrade Mitrovic to Arnautovic. Good idea?

          Fabianski
          Alonso Mendy Robertson
          Salah Hazard Richarlison Fraser
          Aguero Wilson Mitrovic
          (Ryan, Bennett, AWB, Stephens)

          Grey's celebration for the Leicester boss was great to see.
          But it makes you wonder, how ofter are undershirts with writing wasted when players just don't score?
