Leicester unchanged as Everton switch to three at the back

The final two matches of Gameweek 14 take place simultaneously this afternoon, with kick-off at 16:30 GMT.

Manchester United host Aston Villa at Old Trafford, while third-placed Leicester City take on Everton at the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes can move back to within eight points of league leaders Liverpool with a victory over the Toffees this afternoon.

With his side on a five-match winning run, Brendan Rodgers has unsurprisingly named an unchanged team for the sixth game in a row.

Jamie Vardy (£9.8m), the most-captained player overall and in the top 10k in Gameweek 14, keeps up his ever-present record under his manager.

The Leicester striker hasn’t blanked since Gameweek 8 and averages 8.67 points per match in home games this season.

The Foxes come into this game having not conceded a league goal since Gameweek 9.

Marco Silva makes three changes to the side that was beaten by Norwich City last weekend.

Michael Keane (£5.4m) joins Yerry Mina (£5.3m) and Mason Holgate (£4.4m) in a back three, while Alex Iwobi (£5.7m) replaces the injured Theo Walcott (£6.2m) further forward.

The other change sees Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.8m) oust Cenk Tosun (£5.7m) up front.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes one change from Gameweek 13, with Juan Mata (£6.2m) replacing Phil Jones (£4.8m).

That alteration would seem to indicate that Solskjaer has moved back to a 4-2-3-1, with Mata joining Daniel James (£6.2m) and Marcus Rashford (£8.7m) in the attacking trident behind Anthony Martial (£7.8m).

Budget FPL defender Brandon Williams (£4.1m) is again preferred at left-back, with positional rivals Ashley Young and Luke Shaw (both £5.4m) on the bench.

Dean Smith names the same Aston Villa side that beat Newcastle on Monday, so there is no place for Marvelous Nakamba (£4.4m) in midfield.


Leicester City XI: Schmeichel, Pereira, Evans, Söyüncü, Chilwell, Ndidi, Ayoze Pérez, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy.

Everton XI: Pickford, Digne, Holgate, Keane, Mina, Sidibe, Davies, Sigurdsson, Iwobi, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.

Manchester United XI: de Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelöf, Maguire, Williams, Andreas Pereira, Fred, James, Mata, Rashford, Martial.

Aston Villa XI: Heaton, Guilbert, Konsa, Mings, Targett, McGinn, Luiz, Hourihane, El Ghazi, Wesley, Grealish.

      I was gonna ask how it's a one week punt...but my transfer policy is so erratic every transfer is a one week punt.
