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.

    1. diesel001
      • 2 Years

      Attacking when Leicester started really pushing forward.

  6. fusen
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Anyone part of the 20% of top 10k players who have Hazard still?

    A goal from him today would help me get back into the top10k after last weeks City hauls.

  7. MattSmitty
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    5K OR, 81 points with Aguero/Sane to go. Green arrows up!

  8. Silecro
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Sane > Mane for free? have salah also, but just cant stand Sane benching anymore...although it leaves me with only laporte as city cover

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Maybe Anderson instead?

      1. Silecro
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 7 days ago

        not so sure on him, west ham seems as they are struggling to score goals now

  10. Auboomerang
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Even with a nice late Son goal, the Kolasinac massacre pops up in my brain outta nowhere. Anyone else still spewing?

    1. Hands Guber
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Yup. More so because a Son goal in injury time only serves to rub salt in the wounds as I don't have him.

    2. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos

        They certainly do

    5. fusen
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      It's about picking up the players who are in form. The people who do really well are the lucky ones who manage to have the player before their main period of good form and so have the lead to others who get the players midway through the good form.

    6. The Enlightener
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      The whole differential notion is rubbish. Unless you want your rank to fall.

  12. Polka Wakey O'Dot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Fantastic by Son. I have no idea how many times players miss from a situation like that but I bet it's far higher than we think.

  13. QUEN
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Think Llorente is safe to play against Burnley?

    Or is kane back

    1. Polka Wakey O'Dot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      No.

        No to what

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          He's not safe.

  14. tm245
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Son finishing on 17 BPS, gets 18 just for a goal. Feels like eye test and stats are pretty close in this case.

    Some people on here are such sore winners. As if Son scoring in the last minute again isn't fortunate.

    1. Yank Revolution
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Oh its definitely fortunate, but, the game does last 90 mins...so anything can happen until that last whistle blows.

    2. Lazaretti
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      My ml rivals have been getting more than 100 pts advantage after 90mins. Auba and Son + some others. I just get Kola kind of moves... still leading

  19. SouperstarsXI

    Noob question.. but why does the BPS score of players change from what it was at FT to when the bonuses are eventually added?

    1. G-Whizz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Deductions finalised

    2. Brosstan
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Deductions for being tackled and winning goal bonus etc are added later.

    3. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      stuff like tackled, fouls (deductions), winning goal (additions)

    4. G-Whizz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      If you go to the Member's area and click on the match, then scroll down to the stats and choose BPS plus. Sort this column and it will give you what the final BPS scores will be 😉

  20. G-Whizz

    Could do with a 0-0 here...

    1. QUEN
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Could do with a 4-4

    2. Jealous Viper
      1 month, 7 days ago

      United fan. 2-1. Zinchenko and mahrez off the bench. Gundogan 2 asssits. Barkley goal. Jorginho assist

    3. Brosstan
      • 4 Years

      Laporte hatty would be nice

  21. BDA Shadow
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Sane is officially the worst buy of the season (this time)

    1. QUEN
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Not for me.

      Time to sell him now though but idk who for not many options

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        You're right, absolutely no options who are guaranteed to not blank outside of Pool who we all probably have.

  22. Weilong7
    • 2 Years

    sane dropping tonight?
    fplfix says not yet (-40 odd%) but fplstats -90.5?

    1. Yank Revolution
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Sell -- he may hemorrhage price the next 2 weeks. I know people will advise against early transfers tho....

      1. Weilong7
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        will surely sell but if not yet dropping got more time... already lost 0.1 from the time i bought him in

  23. Jealous Viper
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Lloris probably the only good decision i made on gw15 WC

  24. Sturridges private nurse
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 7 days ago

    33 points, Hazard, Alonso, Sane(C) and Doherty to play. I see them as diffenrentials.

    Haters might call then the result of missing deadline.

    1. BDA Shadow
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      You captained Sane against Chelsea..?

      1. Weilong7

    Son's goal does nothing for anyone as everyone who's anyone has someone called son

    FPL is now a 3 player game

    Robbo, Doherty, ____
    Salah, Son, Pogba, ____
    Rashford, Jiminez, ____

    Who are your 3 players

    1. Fpl Cursed

      I guess mark isn't an anyone? 🙂

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

    2. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      TAA, Sane, Auba

      Fab in goal

    3. InSaneMan-e
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Haha. To be fair I don't have jiminez or robbo anymore.
      But lloris 12 pointer is beautiful! My 4 players are shaw rich (getting rid) sterling and PVA

    4. SADIO SANÉ
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Pereira, Jota, Auba (also will be TAA instead of Robbo)

    5. MattSmitty
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I currently am 5k OR and own 3 of those players so not necessarily (haven't owned Salah all season)

    6. cigan
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Currently on Trent, Sane & Lacazette but Sane has to go - for either Eriksen or Mane (if it's Mane, Trent has to go too - likely for a Leicester defender)

    7. Good Times
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Well spoken. Shaw, jota, auba.. Also bennet instead of Doherty

      • 1 Year

      So true. I was saying to someone the other day how everyone seems to have the same players. Mine are kolasinac milivoj.... and auba/kun depends on fixtures

    11. Brosstan
      • 4 Years

      Laporte, Jota, Aguero

    13. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Yeah, it's pretty boring...hard to make ground in either direction, it's all down to captain picks.

      Pick 3, no expense spared: Auba, Sterling, Luiz

      I currently have Firmino, Jota and Bednarek playing in those positions though

    14. Paddington Bear
      • 1 Year

    to

    A) Eriksen & Pereira (exact cash)

      Just sane to Mane?

        yeah that would be obvious and ideal but I've got 3 Liv already so 1 out of Robbo/Trent would have to go

            thanks - it's exact funds though so i need to pull the trigger fast as Mane will rise i guess?

    Nothing against City, or Liverpool, quite the opposite...but in the interests of an exciting prem finish for us all a Chelsea win today would be great.
