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.

      That made no sense. Take out the “win”

    Off freaking course Son scores in the last minute....

    Lucky owners

    1. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Game lasts 90m

    2. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Lucky how?

      1. MGD
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Last minute, hardly no involvement, keeps overperforming his stats etc.

        But great for owners, obv.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          It's not luck owning a guy who scores the way he does. Daft if you don't.

          1. MGD
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Well I’m not at all saying he is a bad pick, just that this game - this instance- he got lucky to get away with attacking returns.

            Agree or don’t , I don’t care.

    3. Forza Papac
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bitter.

      Given I lost a shedload of defensive points in the SOU-CAR game after the 91st minute yesterday, nice that a Son 91st minute goal has balanced out my luck today 😎

  7. bialk

    What to do with Sane?
    Have Salah, Son, Pogba and Hojberg.

    1. SirStevieG
      • 6 Years

      Mane

    2. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 9 Years

  16. Ógie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Son only cost Spurs £22 million back in 2015.He has to be one of the best signings ever made in the PL and has been immense for Spurs for the last few years.

    1. SirStevieG
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Suarez was 22 mil to Pool

      1. JONALDINHO

    2. BigBillyBass
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 8 days ago

      One of the best signings ever made in the PL? Man Utd bought Ronaldo for £12.5m

      Have a day off mate

    3. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I think the Salah transfer was the time of change for outrageous transfer fees

      After that the market went mental

    4. Brosstan
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Richarlison for 50m

  18. Catastrophe

    Fabianski
    Robertson, Kolasinac, Doherty, AWB
    Pogba, Salah, Mane, Son
    Rashford, Jimenez

  22. fusen
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Son is only starting in 66.9% of top 10k teams.

    That goal actually helped a decent number.

    1. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Yeah dropped 1k on his goal

    3. Polka Wakey O'Dot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Yeah but tbh that's probably because they kept their City mid....which could be Sterling...or Sane...

  23. Yank Revolution
    • 7 Years
