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.

      Seems a waste of the FH

    2. SMEE_HEEE
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      save FH for 31 or 32

    3. Camzy
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      No really appealing fixtures to take advantage of for a free hit here. Only way I'd take a FH here is if I had Aguero + Sterling since keeping both for after the blank is really good.

        What would you recommend with my current team?

      Sold last night for Mane

      1. True Deadzoner

      Son

    4. Black Knights

      There are no Sane owners. Only former Sane owners that are crying about now owning Son.

      1. Cilly Bonnolly

        Former Sane owner delighted to now own Pogba here.

  4. Niho992

    Really glad to have Pereira for upcoming fixtures, even he s on my bench for this gw..

    1. Black Knights
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Same. Had Mee first sub over him, which was correct wasn’t it?

      1. Niho992
        3 months, 11 days ago

        It is unfortunately. My first sub was AWB...

      2. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        yeah

        1. Black Knights

          Cheers.

    2. SADIO SANÉ
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      most people will have him within a week or two so it doesn't really matter tbh

      1. Niho992
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Yeah, but they will have to spend transfer to get him.

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          yeah true

    Llorente 21 points in 3 games. You've served me well mate but it's time to say goodbye.

    1. Skloppy Kops

      Show some loyalty plz

      1. Team Cruel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I would have kept him the whole season if Poch trusted him.

  6. L'Aeroplanino

    Pereira again!
    get in my team now

    New holy trinity?

    Robbo Pereira Doherty

    1. Black Knights
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I’ve got Kolasinac, pereira, Doherty. Who needs clean sheets?

      1. Garlana
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Kola does

      2. Pierce34
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I know the answer to this - it's Arsenal. Arsenal very much do need clean sheets!

  8. Baby Face Nelson

    I'm so done with CIty players

    1. Ross From Friends
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yup same, too risky to go near them right now

      1. Baby Face Nelson
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        so many changes. Even if your player starts he's not getting 60mins

    2. Srv210
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I'm thinking of getting kun in for auba after next few weeks

      1. Baby Face Nelson
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Good luck with his 60 mins playing time (if he starts)

    3. Niho992
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Sterling is best option.

  9. Ross From Friends
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Brought in Son for the first time this season and he blanks and gets a YC....sorry guys!!!

    1. TyroneGAA

      Cheers Ross I was wondering what caused this

  10. AuFeld
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Does anyone know what the meaning is of the "8" in the stairs at Wembley?

    1. Ross From Friends
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      8 years of hoping for a title?

      1. AuFeld
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Makes sense why David Schwimmer doesn't get casted anymore.

        1. Ross From Friends
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 11 days ago

          At the time of their syndication negotiations, the show executives agreed that each cast member would receive two percent of the show’s back-end profits. According to several reports, the hit series continues to generate massive revenue and makes Warner Bros around $1 billion every year. That means each cast member pulls in around $20 million every year.

    2. Black Knights
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      It’s a number. Follows 7, precedes 9.

    3. Ha.
      • 3 Years

      EE...

    4. Team Cruel

      It's the EE logo

    7. BOATIES FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      It's not an 8 it's the EE logo I think

  11. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    Pereira on for bonus point too, he'll be popular for 27 and beyond!

  12. HurriKane

    Why has Sissoko has suddenly turned into prime yaya toure 😀

    sorry fellow Son owners,

    I brought him in for the first time this season, knew he would blank...

  14. Midlands Saint73

    Your a sillyman for that booking

    1. Ha.

      You’re a silly man for that spelling

        Surely you mean grammar? I love to bait out the grammar police

        1. Ha.

          Depends whether you spelt it incorrectly or not

    Rose diver.

  16. NABIL - Gettin' Siggy …
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Pereira playing RB or RW?

    1. Niho992
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Both probably.

      1. NABIL - Gettin' Siggy …
        • 6 Years

        Cheers

    2. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Rb but he's forward a lot. He used to be a winger and then got moved to defense but still gets forward a lot.

      Can play LB too no problem

      1. NABIL - Gettin' Siggy …
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Cheers man!

  17. BobB

    Why wasn't Rose booked for diving? Far more deserving than Son's one

    1. Jᴀʀᴠish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      2 wrongs don't make a right

    2. Black Knights

      On a yellow already.

  18. SirStevieG
    • 6 Years

    Very underwhelming performance by Son. Very, very underwhelming.

    1. NABIL - Gettin' Siggy …
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Bound to have one. Still a good pick

    2. Adriano
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Leicester are a really solid defensive team this year. No surprise really he's had very little space to work with

  19. Yoshioka
    3 months, 11 days ago

    How deep has Tielemans played? Haven't watched the game but rate him as a player.

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      been box to box, got forward more than i expected. one of the better players on the pitch. not sure if a realistic fpl asset

      1. Yoshioka
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Cheers. He's capable of playing all through midfield, so I wasn't sure. I know what you mean about not being a realistic fpl asset though... a bit of a Wijnaldum - will pop up with a few goals and be a great player out on the pitch, but will frustratingly assist the assister too often.

    2. BOATIES FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      He's looked top notch but maybe not great for Fpl points

    3. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Great player useless for FPL

  20. Polka Wakey O'Dot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Sissoko is absolutely massive compared to this somewhat titchy Leicester team.

  21. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    Was hoping the Spurs mid double up would be good insurance wise, delighted with Eriksen but still happy to have Son. The Son hate on here is hilarious!

    1. Ha.
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Is it not?

    2. SirStevieG
      • 6 Years

      He has been poor, nothing funny about it.
