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.

    Just to avoid hits I kept sane instead of mane...and somehow now I would love to take hits to get out of the mess of a team I have .

      It's ok to take hits sometimes

      Especially for a player who was dropped, plays Chelsea and has a blank week directly after it

    Nice 1 point from Son.

    Its funny how I got rid of Sane for Son but the former could come on and get a return while Son gets a 1 pointer.

    Love you FPL

      Wow. Sounds like you’re probably the only person here that’s done that too, so bad luck.

      He's on the bench. Man City twitter posted an incorrect line-up originally.

    Son owners will get the same points as Sane owners

    Pereira to come off my bench if Sane doesn't play...we all know what will happen 🙁

  11. Ha.
    • 3 Years

    The you buy Sane because he’s allegedly the more nailed...

  12. _sidney_will

    ML Rival has Son & Rose 1 pointers, just need Laporte and Sterling to combine to get more than 2 points!

  13. Limbo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Kun delight.

  14. schlupptheweek
    • 4 Years

    Had Pereira all season but I have missed most of his returns on the bench! I will never learn.

  15. Dakes.
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Sane best come on and score...

    1. Niho992

        1. Niho992
          2 months, 12 days ago

          na'h you really are. All your posts are like ''Please my player to score'' . I mean wtf.

  16. diesel001

    Wanyama on
    Llorente off

  17. Guy Demel

    was edging for Chillwell and 0.3 over Pereira, but will get the latter in for Digne after that - seemed pretty quiet attacking wise up to that assist.

    1. Adriano
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      He has a great end product to be fair

    2. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      He's definitely worth the extra if you can afford it.

      I'll drop Digne for him if I can at some point before 31

      .2 short of Pereira though. Chilwell will do

    Sane to Pogba worked out (so far)
    Delaying Aguero to Aubameyang worked out (so far)

  19. DV8R

    Richarlison outscoring Son

    Will spend this entire 90 praying for Kun not to score

      And moaning every minute on here.

      1. Dakes.

  25. Brosstan

    Brought Sane in because he was in that leaked lineup.. Fuming, Man City twitter should apologize.

    1. DV8R
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Which leaked lineup?

      1. Black Knights
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Man City posted him in the XI in Sterling’s place and on the bench.

    2. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      No one's going to apologise. The footballing world does not care about your fantasy footy team.

  26. Forza Papac

    We all know Spurs are gonna bottle this.

  27. Zilla

    Chelsea v City matches are always disappointing, hope this one isn't boring.

    1. Guy Demel
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      "tactical stalemate"

    2. Skloppy Kops
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      As long as Chelsea wins. Its not boring.

    3. Hazz

      Last one wasn't bad.

      The return fixture this season was one of the games of the season so far!?

    Ederson

    Pereira creates another big chance. Glad to have him for the run.
