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.

    How is that a booking for Son? Not necessarily a foul but it's not a dive either

    1. Keep Calm and Play On
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      It’s a clear foul

        I'm A spurs fan and Son owner but I think it would have been a soft penalty. Mind you seen them given for challenges similar on Salah

        1. Black Knights
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Point remains; it wasn’t a dive.

    2. InSaneMan-e
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I completely agree. It's either a penalty or no penalty and no booking.

    Son owner - not a pen, but also not a yellow.

    Does Llorente have a square head?

          Perhaps a bit harsh on him, at least he is guaranteed to assist or score today.

          As a top 10k player for the past half year, I am rarely wrong

      Nearly all the players that play in the PL are crazy rich.

    That is really awful reffing, Sonny isn’t a player that dives and maguire made contact. Not an obvious Pen but a yellow is ridiculous

    1. Jᴀʀᴠish

      VAR will help solve.

      From where he was standing he should have seen that it was a pen...if he was so quick to give the yellow for diving he on a felt like he was in a good spot, just made a terrible call

      Brooks or Maddy who would you rather to play for your team?

      For me definitely Brooks.
      Maddy is too slow for modern football.

      What's up with England and shitty refs? Seen 7th division refs that are more competent..

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Pressure and scrutiny I would say

    • Nomar
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      The sad thing is that this ref is probably going to give a penalty for something really sift and innocuous after having booked Son for the crime of being tripped up in the box.

            Maybe!
            Would ne a good signing for any of the top 6. Maybe city already have options but hed improve the squad of all of the rest
