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.

    Thoughts?

    Ryan (Button)
    TAA Robertson Digne Ake (Dunk)
    Salah KDB Siggy Fraser (Dendoncker)
    Vardy King (Greenwood)

    Ake + Dunk to a 5.5 + 4.0 perhaps but I like those Bournemouth fixtures and Dunk can come in for GW3 against MCI

    1. AuFeld
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 5 hours ago

      Keep an eye on Adam Smith for Ake in preseason. Could save you $0.5m. Ryan is a tough pill to swallow, especially with a double BHA defense.

    2. Clay Davis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 days, 4 hours ago

      Suggestion: Ake to 4.5 (elmohamedy?) and Dendonker to Noble (5.0) who is on pens.

      1. Kristobal
        • 7 Years
        6 days, 3 hours ago

        Why Elmohamady? Is he the best option at 4.5? Many assists?

    3. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 4 hours ago

      I like it and would keep ake if you plan on playing him every week

  2. CFC1990

    Thoughts on Murray?

    Anyone considering him?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 days, 4 hours ago

      no hes too old mins will be limited

      1. AuFeld
        • 2 Years
        6 days, 4 hours ago

        Not for us to decide.

        13 goals last season and on PK's with good opening fixtures. Why not. Alternative forward options for BHA are limited.

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          thanks i thought it was my decision until your post

    2. Demí

      Don't think he was completely nailed last season. Might drop off in appearances even more given he'll soon be 36. If Brighton have ambitions to progress they should be looking for better

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 days, 4 hours ago

        Andone at £1m cheaper may well be the Brighton bargain

    3. Clay Davis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 days, 4 hours ago

      New manager so will have to keep an eye on preseason minutes before reaching an informed conclusion.

      Personally, I still think he can do a job but does Potter?

    4. Brooksy86
      • 2 Years

      I've gone all in...

    5. noquarternt
      • 3 Years

      Will definitely have if it looks like he's going to play regularly.

  3. Goodish
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    6 days, 4 hours ago

    How's this look? Playing 4-4-2. No big City attacker is my main worry. Not concerned about having no Everton.

    Ryan, Button
    TAA, Robertson, Laporte, A Smith, Diop
    Salah, B Silva, Fraser, Jorginho, Dendoncker
    Kane, Vardy, Wickham

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 days, 4 hours ago

      if insist on owning kane this is a good way to go about it

    2. Clay Davis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      You’ve got 5 awful players in your team who you’ll struggle to upgrade.

      I suggest downgrading Bernardo to say Tielemans/Perez and upgrading Jorginho to a 6.5 or wickham to Ings

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 days, 4 hours ago

        jorg if on pens perfectly good value at 5.0 (likely imo)

        1. Clay Davis
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          6 days, 4 hours ago

          I actually don’t think he’ll play all the time, mate. I can see Lamps playing Kante CDM and Barkley and RLC either side.

          Saying that, he did play 4-2-3-1 tonight, so maybe Jorg and Kante as two CDM with Barkley or RLC (when fit) in the hole. Also has Kovacic, Bakayoko and Mount. Plenty of options and I reckon plenty of rotation in the first few gameweeks until he discovers which system and players he trusts.

          1. EMBOLOFAN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            6 days, 4 hours ago

            (when fit) is a big caveat about RLC. dont share your optimism about stones but lets see

            1. EMBOLOFAN
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              6 days, 4 hours ago

              stones? i meant barkley

      2. Goodish
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        6 days, 4 hours ago

        Diop and Smith are not awful imo, they are enablers. You can't pick a team with 11 players that you expect to get points every week. For the first 10 or so weeks I'm happy to play one of them. Yes, it all falls down if Jorginho isn't an option. I'm hoping for an early penalty so that his price goes up before my wildcard. I'm willing to gamble on that slot though to afford the others. As I see it I have 6 slots I can expect points from (Liverpool, Kane, Vardy, Laporte), 2 slots that will tick along nicely (Fraser, B Silva) and 3 weak links, where I am hoping for the odd cleansheet from Brighton, Bournemouth and West Ham in some relatively decent fixtures, and maybe a penalty, an assist and a few clean sheet points from Jorginho in the first 8-10 games.

    3. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 4 hours ago

      I wouldn't want to start two of A Smith, Diop, Jorginho and dendo every week

      1. Goodish
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        6 days, 4 hours ago

        My team relies on Jorginho being an option admittedly. I have no problem playing one of Diop or A Smith for any of the first 10 weeks, by which point I would have wildcarded anyway.

    Rate my team please, I’m happy not to own an Everton defender:

    Ryan • Button
    VVD • Taylor • Diop • Cathcart • Kelly
    Salah • Sterling • Siggy • Brooks • Tielemans
    Kane • Deulofeu •Wickham

    1. EMBOLOFAN

      defence is a trainwreck, downgrade kane

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 days, 4 hours ago

      3 premiums is awful value you can only captain one at a time and liverpool/city rotate perfectly

    3. *sigh*
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Tielemans to 4.5 and upgrade defence.

    4. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year

      Reduce it to 2 premiums and Upgrade defence

    5. KAPTAIN KANE

      Midfield is too heavy, if you want 3 big hitters here's how I've squeezed them in:

      5-3-2
      Ryan
      TAA | VVD | Digne | Zinchenko | A.Smith
      Salah | Sterling | Tielemans
      Kane | King

      Button | Dendoncker | Hayden | Greenwood

                Lamela. Bit Punty but see how pre season pans out. No Son helps

                  Last Q. Are you also playing Den?

                    Den? I assume not

                      • 8 Years
                      6 days, 4 hours ago

                      Ah, gotcha. Yep unless a better cheap mid turns up.

                        He is by far my weakest link

                        Ah, Ok, I see your response now. Doable with Sterling but too risky for my liking. GL though.

  8. Coaly

    a) Vardy Zaha Barkley
    b) Jiminez Siggy Perez

    1. Fantasy Gold

      B

    2. Clay Davis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 days, 4 hours ago

      At this moment in time B.

      I fancy Barkley to do well this season but I’d not have him from the start mainly because tough opening game against United (although he scored as a sub in last years fuxture) but also we don’t know if Lampard will play Barkley and if he does, how much freedom he’ll get. Best to wait and see.

    3. Legend of Rosický

      B

  9. Villa Velour
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    6 days, 4 hours ago

    What's everyone's thoughts on De Bruyne?

    If he gets good minutes in pre-season with a couple returns then surely £9.5m for a player of his quality is an absolute bargain.

    1. Fantasy Gold
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 4 hours ago

      It’s tempting but I prefer a fully-rested Sterling, even at 12m.

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 days, 4 hours ago

      he's overrated, that season where he went mad he massively outperformed xgi

    3. AuFeld
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 4 hours ago

      I am concerned about the impact of his injury and his minutes being limited. 'Absolute bargains' can be applied to Sanchez and Ozil as well, but I'm not holding my breath.

      1. Villa Velour
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 days, 4 hours ago

        I wouldn't put Sanchez and Ozil in the same bracket, but I do get your point.

        1. MeatPieSausageRoll
            6 days, 4 hours ago

            Ozil is pretty redundant too tbf. Might not be a write off to quite the same extent as Sanchez but think it’s pretty safe to rule him out as an fpl prospect

            1. Villa Velour
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              6 days, 4 hours ago

              I meant Sanchez & Ozil in the same bracket as KdB.

      2. Clay Davis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 days, 4 hours ago

        Wait and see how preseason goes I think. This time last year he was widely regarded as indespensable to City. But his injured showed everyone that City can survive without him. He’ll be back for sure because cream always rises to the top. But I’d it worth the risk when there are so many great options for less like Zaha, Siggy, Tielemans who will all be guaranteed starters

        1. Kristobal
          • 7 Years
          6 days, 3 hours ago

          Is Tielemans a good fpl prospect? Better than Perez? Don’t know so much about him.

      3. Legend of Rosický
        • 1 Year
        6 days, 4 hours ago

        I like Bilva more at 8

      4. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 2 Years
        6 days, 4 hours ago

        The conclusion I've reached (at least for now) is to 'wait and see' on KdB and instead go safer with Sterling (with sacrifices elsewhere).

        Part of the reasoning being I'd rather downgrade say a Sterling to pick him up as a bargain early ish on than scramble around to try and upgrade to a firing on all cylinders Sterling.

        1. Legend of Rosický
          • 1 Year
          6 days, 4 hours ago

          I considered this but I have double Everton attack in my defence so thought I'd go Bilva, gives me a bit of a differential too

        1. Legend of Rosický
          • 1 Year

          This is something I could consider as well. Thanks

        Nice midfield, although I prefer Zaha to Bsilva.

        Defence is solid but I wouldn’t double up on Everton defence. Personally I think Coleman’s is fine and Digne not worth the extra 0.5m.

        The bench won’t provide you any backup should you need it.

        Really not a fan of Duelofeu.

        1. Legend of Rosický
          • 1 Year
          6 days, 4 hours ago

          Could get Zaha and laporte in for Bilva and Digne with 0.5 to upgrade Kelly

      Is there a possibility Perez may be used more as an impact player/Vardy cover and Maddison and Tielemans are more nailed?

        Or he's likely to displace Barnes or Gray?

                Pre season should show us the set up, it is intriguing how They will line up but figure vardy Perez up front, with Perez dropping off, Maddison 10 tielemans ndidi behind, can’t say for the rest

            That is my reasoning and I've got Brendon quotes to back it up along with deep Foxes fans analysis. 🙂

            Let 'em buy!

            At this stage everything is pure speculation. We’ll have to wait and see how Brendan plans to use him. Hopefully preseason will shed some light.

            I’d go with Tielemans early doors as it’s proven he’ll play in Rodgers system. Then, it’s a simple switch should Perez gel and look like he’s a guaranteed starter.

            Completely random question (you can tell it's preseason), but is there any reason why PL clubs aren't generally allowed to play music when their home team scores a goal, similar to what they do for Bayern Munich?

                    6 days, 4 hours ago

                    For the home team? Probably. But if that's the case, why play music at all? At Man Utd's home games they play the Rocky theme for the player entrance which adds to the atmosphere (I think), so is having this for goals scored too much?

                      They must be afraid that everyone will get carried away with the tunes throw off the tops get booked and the match abandoned.

                                  Darude Sandstorm? Or maybe the Titanic theme, which starts just before the goal goes in?

                                  In all seriousness I have no idea, I was just wondering why it was a thing for some clubs in Europe and not others!

                                  They should switch to canned laughter or clown music whenever VAR rules a goal out as well.

                                    Alonso. Lamps likes his full backs to get forwardand tgere are not many better than the Spaniard. He may also find himself on sone free kicks. Preseason should shed more light

                                    You can get all three Liverpool defenders for 20.5m. Two hit 200+, one would have with more minutes. The only thing stopping me from doing it right now is you don't have the Salah(C) option.

                                      Worth noting that all three got more bonus points than Salah last season.

                                        And that’s the flaw with the good value, a captain option halves the cost

                                        You could say why not captain the defender but captain options are based on favourable fixtures and the likelihood of hauls which don’t correlate to defenders to the same degree

                                          I would like to see comparable home points only. Salah is 40 points clear atm so a no brainer overall. If Pool Citeh rotation at the back reaped 90% of Salah points there could be an argument. to ignore Salah.

                                        salah + zinch/laporte etc is cheaper though

                                      Not seen a side with Auba in.
                                      11 mil but sores at 6.7 pts per 90 min.
                                      Due to subbing too risky for captain.
                                      Does not rotate with Salah.
                                      Class act who could finish another third of his chances.
                                      Laca may move on which will enhance gametime.
                                      When the game opened half this site had him in the mix.

                                        People are putting funds into defence and Salah/Sterling. No coins for Auba, Kane, Aguero.

                                          Could be switch to Kane gw3

                                          I just think there is more value in midfield & defence - pretty much done with premium forwards

                                          It's true, they've become the black plague around here.
                                          I think they've earned that honour though and their opening fixtures don't warrant that leap of faith.

                                          Auba is class but that manager gives me the irrites with his incompetence. I'm swerving for the first half dozen.

                                          Rashford: "My goal was never to be a No.9 who can’t play anywhere else. Playing on the left and the right, that's what I want to do. I know what I've worked on since I was a six-year-old and it's to adapt.”

                                          Shame. Would have been a good option playing as a No.9 every game.

                                                  In Ole's conference he confirmed that there have been zero bids for any of the players.

                                                  Shame, because until those players move on, new ones can't come in.

                                            I don't consider him a Worldly player.
                                            He always seems to run into dead ends or six foot defenders.

                                                He mentioned a lot of interchanging and fluidity to United's system, so it sounds like the goals will be spread out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBxlatlm0F4

                                              think this is realistic. walcott (for example) convincing himself he was a number 9 was embarassing

                                                  It was arguably injuries that ruined Walcott's career, which meant he ended up starting over 30 games a season just twice in 11 seasons.

                                                  I think you're being harsh though. He was involved in 114 goals in 271 games for Arsenal. He had a similar goals/assists per 90 rate to Hazard, and didn't have penalty kicks. The guy was a FPL must have in his day.

                                              Take Ederson down to Ryan or similar instead and upgrade defence?

                                                I'd turn Ederson into Heaton/Pope and then upgrade Stearman to Trippier/Coleman/PVA/Zinchenko

                                                  Team looks good imo, I’d downgrade pukki instead of bilva

                                                  im somewhat wary of zaha being moody if he doesn't get his transfer, which is looking likely. i currently have ederson but in your case i think i'd downgrade him and probably bilva to upgrade hayden and stearman

                                                  I think you should keep Silva, he will shine this year like a diamond

                                                  looks great. downgrading deulotroll and upgrading digne to laporte is another option

                                                      i've currently got ings (good underlying stats) but i'm concerned about his run of home fixtures in the medium term

                                                Seen lots of interest in Pope and I am ultimately looking to get whoever claims the Burnley goalkeeper slot, but I dunno if I can do it with those first 4 fixtures. Only one decent out of 4 really. Save points I guess, but the smart play may be to go elsewhere and then get the (by then established) Burnley keeper in on first wildcard.

                                                  personally not sure why burnley so popular - 5th worst defence last season. even in second half of the season when hart was gone and their form improved they still had the 6th worst defence

                                                    Based on the previous couple of seasons and how well Pope/Heaton did in those.

                                                  Ryan and then switch to the Burnley keeper looks good.

                                                    My thoughts, too, but getting a Brighton keeper also doesn't feel right. A real dearth of options at 4.5.

                                                          either bilva or richarlison

                                                            I think Siggy is a must-have, but those two, not so much.

                                                  knew they improved at the back but didn't appreciate how drastically and for how long

                                                        If Zinchenko plays the charity shield, it will be tempting to get him...

                                                          he's going to play that new lad in the charity shield, then i'll panic and get coleman, then he'll play zinch in gw1, almost guaranteed

                                                            Ha, yeah. What puts me off Zinchenko is the competition and Pep's rotation. I think you need a decent bench if you go for him.

                                                    3 premiums is bad value, you can only captain one at a time and salah/kun rotate perfectly. kane an unnecessary luxury

                                                      True about Kane, think he’ll do well v Villa but you’re right about 3 premium players.

                                                    Wouldn't go with Aarons to begin with and the midfield is a bit weak.
