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.

      Because Vardy missed that sitter of a header.

    That late goal probably put me in the next round of FFS cup. My rival has Vardy (C) and I have Pereira. 5+ points swing.

    4. Yank Revolution

      Potentially selling

    5. Regin
      • 2 Years

      Sell, but first I want mount out too

    6. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Not sure, I only have 1 FT and wanna get rid of Pope, I might bench him this week, tempted to switch him to Tielemans or Madds though, Leicester have a very nice next 3.

      1. Regin
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Don't get tielemans or Maddison. Get pulisic or alli or even Zaha.

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Alli next week is the other option I'm considering, those next 3 Leic fixtures look so good though.

          1. Would Ed Woodward
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 12 days ago

            Already own Pulisic.

    7. Rashford FC

      SELL

  11. TherryOnWii

    Sidebe play acting is costing Silva his job. If he just got up and move on with the play, it would've been a different story.

  12. gooberman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Another shocker from VAR. Linesman gave it offside so for it to be over turned it has to be a clear and obvious error which it certainly wasn't from the replay. So many other disallowed goals this season for offside which were more onside than this one. Eff off VAR.

    1. Daniel S.
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      It was clear goal imo.

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      We have a new precedent for offside under VAR, which is still in accordance with the rules.

      The whole point of VAR is to get offsides correct. Iheanacho was clearly onside.

    3. Regin
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Nonsense. Onside. Var improving

      1. gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        To my eyes, the strikers foot was marginally ahead of the defender. A tiny bit but the point is there have been so many other goals which were more onside than this one that VAR disallowed. Firminio goal and the Sheff Utd goal in particular.

    4. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 12 days ago

      The clear and obvious error is only for the ref's calls, right? Offsides should be black and white, it either is or isn't.

  13. Bookkeeper
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Davies errors for Everton lead to both leicester goals.

  14. Yank Revolution
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Overall Avg higher than Top 10 k...that doesnt happen very often

    50.5 vs 51.5

      VVD and Auba helped

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Auba, Sterling vs Mane fail

  15. theodosios
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    when I look now, it was better that they didn't score

  16. Would Ed Woodward
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Yay, actually made a decent captain choice for once this season.

  17. Yome
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    VAR is not properly regulated, so many wrong decisions!

  18. COK3Y5MURF - UJFC
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Vardy (c) utter fail

    1. The Dance
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      He scored ya know

    2. Fred54
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Joint highest scorer in my team, take that.

      Only goal scorer in my team.

    3. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Hardly a fail when he scores

      1. The Dance
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        It seems if a player scores it’s a fail, so, what is the point of fpl by that logic?

    4. DandyDon
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Better than Kane chancers like me!

  19. Daniel S.
