Son and Llorente lead Spurs attack with Vardy benched

Son Heung-min (£8.8m) makes his third start in a row since returning from the Asian Cup last month.

The South Korean has been averaging 7.1 points per game at Wembley since Gameweek 13 and carries the added responsibility of being the most transferred-in player ahead of Gameweek 26.

Over 550,000 managers opted to sign Son following the conclusion of Double Gameweek 25.

This time he is joined in the starting line-up by the returning Fernando Llorente (£5.7m) after he was benched against Newcastle last time out.

Christian Eriksen (£9.3m) keeps his place in the midfield but is joined by youngster Oliver Skipp (£4.5m).

Meanwhile, Erik Lamela (£6.1m) misses out on the match entirely with a reported back spasm.

In defence, Jan Vertonghen (£5.9m) and Davinson Sánchez (£5.8m) are selected in a back four, with Toby Alderweireld (£6.0m) on the bench.

Claude Puel has made a brave call for Leicester’s visit to Wembley as he has left Jamie Vardy (£8.8m) on the bench.

Demarai Gray (£5.4m) leads the line for the Foxes, while Youri Tielemans (£6.0m) makes his debut in central midfield.

    Ghezzal is a joke of a player.

    So happy that Lloris is really paying off.

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      12 days, 16 hours ago

      I thought he may have been dropped before today’s game! I know he’s captain but his form has been terrible.

      1. Yank Revolution
        • 7 Years
        12 days, 16 hours ago

  23. seewhyaxe

    wow Sane -> Son seems like a good transfer after all

  24. DA Minnion
    • 6 Years
    12 days, 16 hours ago

    The ultimate and final trolling
    Thought he started them seen him on bench too. You couldn't make it up.

  25. Niho992
    12 days, 16 hours ago

    Come on Raheeeeeeem my diferential ! Chelsea to win 3-2 and Raheem to score twice. Come on !!!

  26. tm245

    Son to get a late goal just to complete the Leroy Sane Experience.

    1. DA Minnion
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 16 hours ago

      Not today.

  27. Top Lad Dakes.
    • 2 Years
    12 days, 16 hours ago

    Worst possible scenario. Sterling Kun start, Sane bench.

    Just bugger off Guardiola

    1. Numb
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 16 hours ago

      That was quite likely to be fair

    2. Adriano
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 16 hours ago

      This was expected. Sane rarely starts against top 6

    3. Brosstan
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 16 hours ago

      Dont forget the Aymerican Dream

  28. Iceball
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    12 days, 16 hours ago

    Sterling/Sane to Eriksen anyone?

  29. SADIO SANÉ
    • 3 Years

    one last kick in the nuts for Sane owners there 😀

    1. SADIO SANÉ

      talking about the teamsheet typos

    2. teneighty

      We love the pain!

  30. Londongeezaa

    Has Sane annoyed Pep over something?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 16 hours ago

      Just poor form?
