Leicester unchanged as FPL managers lump on the Foxes’ in-form players

Four of the five most-bought Fantasy Premier League assets of Gameweek 11 were Leicester City players, with over one million transfers alone used on Jamie Vardy (£9.4m) and Youri Tielemans (£6.5m).

Ayoze Perez (£6.1m) and Ben Chilwell (£5.6m) were part of this popular quartet, with the Foxes by some distance the most in-demand team in the Fantasy community following their 9-0 win over Southampton.

Almost 1.9 million transfers were spent on Leicester players in the eight days between the Gameweek 10 and 11 deadlines.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are in action this afternoon, in the first of two Premier League fixtures to take place on Sunday.

The Foxes are the visitors to Selhurst Park, where Crystal Palace have been a tough nut to crack this season.

The Eagles’ total of three clean sheets and three goals conceded in home league games can’t be bettered by any other top-flight club in 2019/20.

Rodgers’ troops, of course, come into this game off the back of plundering nine goals at St. Mary’s but before that rout of Southampton, they had only scored on four occasions in as many league fixtures on the road.

A run of away games against Chelsea, Sheffield United, Manchester United and Liverpool can perhaps partly explain that and, more encouragingly, Leicester have won all five of their league meetings – home and away – against clubs who finished outside of last season’s top seven.

Vardy has himself banked 11 attacking returns in those five fixtures against the “also-rans” of the Premier League.

In the least surprising team news of Gameweek 11, Leicester are unchanged from the starting XI that hammered Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side just over a week ago.

Roy Hodgson has made two alterations, one of which is enforced.

The injured Andros Townsend‘s (£5.6m) place has been filled by Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.5m), while the fit-again Vicente Guaita (£5.0m) is back between the posts after a brief two-game stint for Wayne Hennessey (£4.4m).

Martin Kelly (£4.1m), by some distance the most-owned Palace player and still in one in four FPL squads, is only among the substitutes.

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita, Ward, Tomkins, Cahill, van Aanholt, Zaha, Kouyate, Milivojevic, McArthur, Schlupp, Ayew.

Leicester City XI: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Evans, Soyuncu, Pereira, Ndidi, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy, Perez.

    If you benched Lundstram vs Burnley at home you simply don't deserve the points

    1. Top Lad Dakes.

      1 month, 11 days ago

      Gotta agree tbh. Easy to say given I played him (I'd be fuming if I didn't) but it was never in doubt for me.

      Can't understand why people would bench him.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        I was going to bench Lundstram (TOT) for Janmaat (NOR) next GW, but less sure now.

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Lund or Rico for me, tough one.

          I will bench Lundstram this week

            1 month, 11 days ago

            Lundy has more points than Salah, Sterling and Auba. I wouldn't bench him at all

              Tough fixture now, that's why

  6. Would Ed Woodward
    1 month, 11 days ago

    I might start benching my mids or forwards, I like my defence too much.

    1. Grand Thibauto

    zaha is just a sublime player. he could play at any top clup in the world imo. no wonder milner said he was the toughest player he has faced in his career

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      One of England’s finest, Milner isn’t too bad either.

    2. fr3d
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Zero end product

      1. boc610
        • 7 Years

        that's nonsense

      2. Luka - Man Like Serbia
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        No end product? 10 goals per season (and many assists) You don' want much football it seems.

    Was away best part of yesterday and today. Lundy is my new hero but getting increasingly concerned about Mo and his "broken" ankle.
    Maybe time to cut losses and get rid of 1.5 season wonder 😉

    What I said the Mid/Fwd combo for 17.8 or under?

    Thinking Rashford and Martial but like the look of
    Jiminez

    1. Weasel51
      • 3 Years

    2. Wolves Ay We

      Same thoughts here. Thinking Martial and Jimenez

      1. Weasel51
        • 3 Years

        Really like Jiminez run

      2. 1justlookin

        Is Jimi looking good mate? Like the avl game u have next week but not bou away

    3. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I wouldn't go utd, so unpredictable plus martial is injury prone and rash is too expensive.
      Jim is a great one I think

      1. Weasel51
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Cheers! Other thoughts were Jiminez and Son

    4. Mr Frost

        Jimenez

          On the pitch little less if you ask defenders

  15. Mr Frost
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Pope
    Lundstram Dunk Rico
    Mané De Bruyne Sterling Mount
    Vardy Abraham Aubameyang

    Button Söyüncü Saka Reid

    Thinking of changing Saka for Dendoncker and Pope for Gazzaniga over the next 2 weeks, 0.0ITB. Any better options?

  16. Pepe Le Pukki
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Maddison. 19 passes in the first half, 100% accurate. 3 long balls, 100% accurate. 1 dribble attempt, 100% accurate.

    Chances of decent fpl points today? Not 100%

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Barkley higher up the English pecking order 100%.

    2. THFC4LIFE

      Good chance of returns, takes set pieces aswel

    3. Mr Frost

      Still not England ready.

  17. THFC4LIFE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    My team is looking a mess right now, Digne, Yarmolenko and C.Wilson all on the chopping block this week.

    How does this look for a -4,

    Digne Yarm Wilson > Rico Martial Jimenez

    1. Mr Frost
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Yep. I sold Yarmo this week for Mane, sold Mane like an idiot 5 gw's ago.

      1. THFC4LIFE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Or I could keep Digne and do Sterling > Mane

    2. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Decent if Martial stays fit.

    Smalling stats since joining Roma are mental

    1. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Did you see the goal line clearance he did the other day? Brilliant.
      In a United kit, that ball wouldve bounced off his foot to his face and into the net.

      1. Differential (c)
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Rumours Roma are buying him permanently for about 17m.

    2. Mr Frost
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Think utd should ask for 30m based on that, otherwise he should come back and displace Lindelof.

  19. Differential (c)
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Might I sell you lot on the idea of buying Djenepo?
    2 goals in 4 appearances this season, just came back from injury, played really well when subbed on yesterday, and he's priced at 5.2m.
    Pretty decent fixtures coming up as well.

        Even in the start of the season, he didn't play why do you want him?

        I guess as a saint fan you can give us your insight

        1. Differential (c)
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Seems like we're pretty dependent on him when he plays. One of those brilliants who likes to showboat and driblle past players, but the difference between him and players like Saint Maximin and Pepe is that he actually can finish.
          He lacked a bit of fitness having come from AFCON before the season, so didnt start GW1.

      I hope he isn’t taking Ings’ place ?

      1. Differential (c)
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Nah, plays as a winger. Love to dribble past player, and he's very good at it.
        Our two wins have come from his moments of brilliance. His goal vs Sheffield, ripped the entire defence to shreds.

      Maybe but I think I prefer Trossard as 5th mid if switching to 352 when Brighton's fixtures clear up.

      KDB is a season keeper like Lundstram.

      1 month, 11 days ago

    7. MikeS
      • 5 Years

    2. Rainer

      Wait and get him for his easy game in GW13.

    3. Mr Frost
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      He'll be 4.9m soon enough.

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        1. Mr Frost
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

      • 8 Years

      Price is rising so depends on that too. I’d get him.

    5. iL PiStOlErO
      1 month, 11 days ago

      He is worth it, even if he was 5.0. So yes bring him in if you can

    6. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅

    3. HamezMace

      Apparently it’s only sickness, let’s see if he plays midweek first.

  25. FOO FIGHTER

    Perez looked quite lively 1st half. Vardy only needs one chance to score.

    Come on!

    1. Mr Frost
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Hoping for Soy goal Vardy assist ha

    2. boc610
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      didn't he already have one chance?

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Does not need many is what I am implying.

      Taking a 0-0 very happily here as a perez and Soy owner. Leicester aren’t breaking that down their players aren’t good enough

      1. HamezMace
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Nah, looks bad in real time, but only a yellow

    2. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Very dodgy tackle, that.

  27. Dacra
    • 5 Years

    Salah hat trick v City next week would make things interesting.
