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.

              Attacking when Leicester started really pushing forward.

            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.

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

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

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

                    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.

                      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.

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

                          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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                                Haters might call then the result of missing deadline.

                                      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

                                      C) just Sane to Eriksen

                                        Why sell TAA?

                                            so I could get Mane (with Robbo & Salah)

                                            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

                                                  I see B then

                                                      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.
