How does Tielemans affect and compare to Leicester’s other FPL assets?

Leicester City’s permanent capture of Youri Tielemans (£6.5m) adds to the Foxes’ attractive options in Fantasy Premier League next season.

The Belgian midfielder, signed for a reported £40m from Monaco, impressed in a brief loan spell towards the end of 2018/19 and was a successful differential pick for those FPL bosses who backed him.

The central midfielder scored three goals and registered a further five assists in just 13 starts, averaging 4.8 FPL points per game – more than any of Leicester’s other Fantasy assets apart from Jamie Vardy (£9.0m).

You can read more about Tielemans’ history in our Scout Report.

The Foxes’ opening eight fixtures are a mixed bag, with Brendan Rodgers’ side facing five of last season’s top seven in the first two months of the campaign.

There are also matches against Sheffield United, Bournemouth and Newcastle United in that time, however.

For those wishing to back a Leicester asset from the off, there is a bit of a selection headache.

Ayoze Perez‘s (£6.5m) case for inclusion was heard in a Members’ article last week but in Tielemans and James Maddison (£7.0m) we also have two FPL midfielders who provided us with decent value for money in 2018/19.

In Vardy, we also have a premium forward who scored more goals than any other Premier League player in the final ten Gameweeks of last season.

This latest article will scrutinise the numbers behind Tielemans’ appearances for Leicester so far.

      Great team

  3. barracuda

    I am spending 6.5 on my 3rd mid and I am bringing in Tiele. Shame he plays a bit deep but should share some set pieces with Maddison.

    1. Drip Doctor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      You'd be better off spending that in attack with Jota in my opinion.

      1. barracuda
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I have never went with a 5-2-3. Interesting times.

    2. Skull And Gnomes 9
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I'm hoping Brendon keeps his new signings under wraps, only to incentivise his proven warriors.

  4. dmkp
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    I can't believe I'm even considering King for my team. I had him at the start last season and eventually sold him for a loss

    1. wh05nxt

      Same boat.

      Fool me once and all that....

      Nice price though with good fixtures and penalties.

      I reckon Deu is your man. Potential huge haul gw1

        Think I’ll get both.

  5. Kizza_10
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    A or B please

    A. Kane & Moutinho

    B. King & KDB

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I'm gonna say B based in fixtures. Besides for gw1 Spurs have a tough start. Kane usually takes some time to get into the season. Also Moutinho is meh

  6. Jarvish Scott Talent
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Everyone is expecting far too much from these 6.0/6.5 options in midfield and up front.

    1. Drip Doctor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Elaborate...?

      1. Jarvish Scott Talent
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        People going with 3 or 4 of them with no bench. Will probably get 1 of them not blanking each week on average.

        1. Drip Doctor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          I don't understand, so you'd rather fill your team with more 5-5.5 players?

        2. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Just 1, you must have a bigger budget than everyone else

      2. Make Arrows Green Again
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Nah, you need to spend 9.0+ to get elaborate

    2. The Overthinker - I blame R…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Kinda agree

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      strawman

    4. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nonsense comment

  7. Peter Ouch

    He is on my team, downgraded Madison for him allowed me to get laporte!

    Get in there Youri!

    1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
      • 2 Years

      Not something I would do

  8. I Member
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Tielemans' stats don't convince. He could continue to overachieve but I think I'd rather take a chance on the more advanced Perez or find the extra 0.5 for Maddison with his set pieces.

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Yeah, will be interesting to see what team and formation he settles on but I think I’d be looking at those two.

    2. No Professionals
      • 2 Years

      Agree

    3. The Overthinker - I blame R…

      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I'd rather Perez myself

      Tielemans classic box to box not going near my fpl team

      Get an attacker further forward like Perez or set piece Maddison

  9. barracuda
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    The only observation with Leiceister attacking assets is that bar Vardy- the points will be spread.

    1. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Was thinking the same.

    2. Respect My Authoritah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Excellent, so go with he cheapest mid 🙂

      1. barracuda
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Might just change my mind and go with Perez as my 3rd mid. Will wait for the preseason. He looked more explosive than Tiele last season. Think he could get more BAPs too.

    3. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Yeah, fancy Leicester to do well this year though. Nice prices all round and they could all prove to be good value.

    4. Skull And Gnomes 9
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Maybe not, there maybe a nugget in there.

    5. Nicepix
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Sterling and City buck that trend so why not Leicester assets?

  10. diesel001
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    I see Idrissa Gueye scored for Senegal today as Senegal progressed to the SFs of AFCON.

    Gueye not being available for Everton in GW1 / GW2 due to an extended break after participating in AFCON would not be good for Everton defensive assets IMO.

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Yeah I mentioned this in the previous article. Having second thoughts on starting with an Everton defender now.

    2. barracuda
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Not if you are preparing for a marathon.

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        But FPL isn't a marathon, it's a series of sprints. It's about getting the right players in at the right time not picking them from the beginning and holding all season.

        1. barracuda
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          To be more specific, with Digne as my only Everton asset- not bothered about Gueye not starting first match or two. Hope you see it through.

    3. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Excellent spot actually. That truly does put a spanner in my works

    4. The Overthinker - I blame R…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Opens door for Double Spurs def for gw1 switching to Chelsea def gw2

    5. Ramboros
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Zaha being gone would impact Palace more than Gueye's absence would impact Everton.

  11. Flynny
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    If you were going for 2 liverpool defenders money no object who would you get?

    Worth getting vvd for complete nailednss?

    Or the 2 fullbacks?

    Thanks

    1. Goodish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      TAA and Robertson for me

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      To be honest any two of Robbo, TAA and VvD is great. Don't think there's much in it between the three of them.

    3. barracuda
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Van Trent

      TAA 2.875
      Robbo 1.45

      Assists
      TAA 12.75
      Robbo 10.25
      VVD 1.75

    5. Netley Lucas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I'm convinced Robbo can improve his crossing and get a goal or two Flynny, that 213 could be beaten. TAA can improve too, what a pair, invest the 14m.

    6. Skull And Gnomes 9
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Virginia and Robbo

    8. tbeans22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      With VAR potentially reducing the number of clean sheets we see this season, give me Robbo and TAA for their attacking stats.

      1. Flynny
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Thanks friends

      2. Zenith UK
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        VAR has no impact on number of penalties given over a season

    9. Jay Jay Okocha
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I think the dropoff from TAA/Robbo to VVD is massive.

    10. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Any 2of hem will do you proud

      But I have a slight hesitation on VVD, so prefer the fullbacks

      It was only as recently as December that VVD was generally ridiculed on FFS for “not getting attacking returns” (prior to the Derby in December he had 1 attacking returns in 2.5 seasons of FPL at that point)

      He’s a fantastic and wonderful player, both IRL and for FPL... but I could perhaps see him going on a blank spell of attacking returns easier than I could see TAA or Robbo doing the same

      (VVD brace in GW1 locked now lol)

    11. _sidney_will
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Robbo & VVD (will change if Pool sign another LB)

      Both more or less nailed

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      A team without 3 or 4 6.0/6.5 midfield/strikers. I was led to believe this was impossible! Nice team.

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        yeah, it's basically sacrificing Sterling for proven FPL players, would be worried about Raheem going big though

    2. The Overthinker - I blame R…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Not so excited about jiminez, rest looks good

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        yeah, tbh Deulofeu wasn't far behind so he's an option too

    3. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year

      Nice team.

    6. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I thought Sterling would have made the cut at 6.9ppm.

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        not sure it's possible to go above 4.5 with all the players with Salah AND Sterling, let me know if you can do it 😉

          TAA, Robbo, Digne, Coleman (Cathcart)
          Salah, Sterling, Siggy, Bernardo Silva (Dendoncker)
          King, McGoldrick (Greenwood).

          4-4-2. All starters 5.5 or above except GK.

    A) Robbo + Tielemans

    Have Trent.

    Hows this looking?

    Heaton,
    Laporte, robinson, dunk
    Mane, bsilva, sterling, jorginho
    Kane, wilson, Deulofeu

    Subs, button, Dendoncker, simpson, diop

    I know there's a few eyebrows raised and id say mostly at jorginho, tho iv a feeling with hazard away, he might be on penalties

  18. The Overthinker - I blame R…
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Unpopular opinion : Bilva will be more of assist the assister kinda player.

    Many options to choose from at that price bracket

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Nothing unpopular about that opinion.

    2. Limited & Mediocre Mana…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      How is that unpopular

    3. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      especially with KdB back, with his direct style of play

      1. Rigid Digit
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        This is my thinking - Silva's 7 goals / 8 assists last year were when KDB was out injured. The KDB factor may well reduce hi Fantasy credentials.
        BSilva => Fraser - done

        1. Markus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          He scored 6 in nearly half as many minutes as he scored last, and assisted at a similar rate in 17/18. Albeit expected assists data better from last year but that's not really a reason to exclude him. One would expect him to score 8+ this season, its much more likely to be kdb assisting him at rw where he finished the season than vice versa. (I don't have him currently btw)

    4. The Overthinker - I blame R…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Unpopular because many expect a lot of points from him?

    5. Skull And Gnomes 9
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I'm hoping you are wrong but understand the sentiment.

      Like that old saying goes, I hate everything you say but would die defending your right to be a strawberry sausage, or whatever it was.

    6. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      this is common knowledge but he's still cheap and with kdb back he could play out wide more often

  19. The 12th Man
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Yeh maybe.

    2. barracuda
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I would be quaking in my pats with no Salah. Limited C option, Jesus to be more involved.

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Imo either a City or Liverpool attacker can be captained most weeks.

        1. barracuda
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Lacking versatility, that's all. I have a team with Kdb, Salah and Sterling.

          1. The 12th Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years

            True

      this is good. id prefer vardy and ederson over aguero and ryan though

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        That could be good, yes.

  20. Goodish
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Both times Liverpool and City play each other this season, Kane plays Sheffield Utd. Can see a few 1 week okey-cokeys for captaincy these game weeks

    1. Netley Lucas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Blades could prove the tightest of the 3 promoted sides, and then some. I do hope the Anfield game is open though, some good football.

      1. Skull And Gnomes 9
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I believe in the Blades, they let in the fewest number of goals in the Champ. for a reason.

      2. Goodish
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Fair enough. Not until GWK12 and GWK32 so plenty of time to see.

  21. barracuda

    Troops, is owning a Man City defender/GK mandatory?

    1. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      No. Your choice

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Not mandatory but advised. More important to have two Pool defenders in my opinion.

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        This

    3. Goodish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      No, not if you’re spending more money in attack. If you’re having 3 or more premiums at the back it makes sense to have at least 1 from City.

      1. barracuda
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        5 premium at the moment- Laporte in. Could remove him for a 7 mil mid. Doesn't look right though. Shame about Fraser priced at 7,5.

      not sure why you wouldnt want laporte

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Except that before GW 34 few wanted him last time - he was a very marginal WC pick. Strange how 5 games shift the thinking process.

    7. LangerznMash
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Not from the start. 1st 3 fixtures could easily be zero clean sheets.

    1. Goodish

        i like lacazette and i think perez or tielemans can cover leicester,not sure i want to spend 9 coins on vardy with his fixtures

        1. barracuda

          Laca- Europa League, no pens, randomly benched. Is it wise?

              • 2 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              I had him last season and he disappointed. Sorry I couldn't help. Vardy looked rejuvenated and composed.

    2. EMBOLOFAN

    Good to go?

    Ryan,

    Salah, zaha, sterling, jorginho
    Kane, king, Deulofeu

    1. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Not keen on any Brighton def, let alone a double up. Personally, I would change Kane to Vardy and upgrade Dunk to VVD.

    2. Ekip
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      You had me searching all over FPL for a defender I thought I must have missed before I realised you meant Robertson not Robinson!!!

  25. Eat my goal!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Do Bournemouth kick on from last year or do they struggle?

    Will we see the same performances from the key players of last season?

    1. Skull And Gnomes 9
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      This is it innit?
      They are so bloody frustrating. I'm not confident.

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I’m not sold either - I had Fraser and Wilson and stuck with them. Gold for me last season but it was out of the norm for players and club

        1. Skull And Gnomes 9
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          That first game against the Blades will be very interesting indeed.

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      struggle

      1. No Professionals
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        They'll score too many goals to genuinely struggle.

    3. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Much the same in my opinion. They'll win a lot of games and lose a lot of games. No serious relegation threat with the likes of Norwich, Sheffield United, villa, Brighton and Burnley there.

    4. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Keeping Fraser and King for first 2 GWks... Playing against 2 promoted sides, could be goal fests

  26. Dare Do The Punt
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Is anyone punting on a nailed Chicarito at 6m?

    Surely with F.Anderson, Lanzini, Yarmolenko and Fornals he will get the service?

    1. Your Man With The Hair
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Surely with £25mil in their pocket they'll replace Arnie?

    2. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      he is not nailed

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      nailed chicha doesnt exist

    4. Netley Lucas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Aren't they after a striker? Rondon?

  27. 16ShimiC16

    Who do we think is likely to be Laporte & VVD CB partners? Looking for a cheap route into there defence

    1. Jordan.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      maguire and gomez ,ill go for

      1. 16ShimiC16
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I do think City will buy another CB & its likely to be for a big fee so im expecting that person to start

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      stones and matip

      1. 16ShimiC16
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Thats who ive got atm, the community shield game should tell us more

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 13 days ago

          of the two think matip more nailed. he was really solid last year. stones also sometimes comes off bench when he doesnt start which is infuriating

    3. Rigid Digit
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I'm hoping this will be the year for Stones - hopefully become nailed in the centre of defense (and inherit captaincy from Kompany).
      Waiting for pre-season (and the Maguire situation) to resolve - at 5.5m for City defense, I so want to be right

  28. Wild Rover

    3 months, 13 days ago

    i stopped following epl since january so i havent seen tielemans playing, but after watching vids for his time at leicester his position seems to be deep mid so why is everyone here raving about him when we have advanced mids in maddison and perez?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      the article outlines this

  30. Wild Rover
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Where does the theory that Perez could play on the left flank come from?

    1. barracuda
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Paid 30 mil for him. Would you sit him? If not, where would you play him?

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      where do you think he'll play

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        He started as striker at Newcastle but was moved to the right with great success

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 13 days ago

          doubt rodgers changes shape to accommodate him behind vardy as madds already does a good job there, wide players are less nailed so he could easily play there given he played WB for newcastle at times last year

    3. Skull And Gnomes 9
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      He's a wait and see for me.
      I don't see him banging straight into the first team, regardless of the dollar.

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I do

        1. barracuda

          same
