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.

    Worth getting a keeper in for next week only? I think no...

              true...don't take a hit doing it. But I would do it if for free...preferably one that also plays in the blanks

        I’ll drop like a stone in the rankings unless Sterling produces something today.

        1. aborg
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          At least he is playing. I’ve kept Sane !!

          Son the have 500,000 transfers in by GW27.

          1. Pishpott
              3 months, 11 days ago

              At least

            Who to transfer out for getting Pereira in out of

            AWB,bednarek,Luiz,Doherty,TAA

            Bednarek,AWB are good bench players,and I don't know if I want to transfer anyone of Luiz,TAA or Doherty..hence asking for suggestions.

              • 2 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              probably luiz.. i had him as well..

            2. Pishpott
                3 months, 11 days ago

                I'd get Chilwell

            3. Auboomerang

              Anyone else think Pogba is enough United attack over the next 5? Liverpool(H) Palace(A) Southampton(H) Arsenal(A) City(H)

              Rashford is obviously still a quality pick, but it wouldn't be surprising if he blanks in 2 or 3 of those fixtures. Might be worth risking a differential, especially if you're chasing.

                Yes

                3 months, 11 days ago

                Who are you getting instead of rash?

                1. Auboomerang
                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 11 days ago

                  Really like Newcastle's next three fixtures so considering Rondon. The extra funds allow me to bring in Sterling for GW28 too

                  1. Pishpott
                      3 months, 11 days ago

                      Would much rather have Rashford than Rondon.

              3. cigan
                  3 months, 11 days ago

                  i'd love to be smug how i had the balls to bench Sane but he's coming in for Rashford anyway lol

                  Barnes or Rondon? Need to find a replacement for Kamara. Barnes has great stats, but Newcastle have great fixtures.

                  Anyone else still own both Hazard & Alonso, desperate for Chelsea to smash City here?

                  Looks like the #1 in the world is finally going to lose the top spot
