Lloris back from injury as Rodgers recalls Chilwell

There are three Premier League matches taking place this evening.

Leicester City v West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur v Norwich City both get underway at 19:30 GMT, with Manchester United v Burnley kicking off 45 minutes later.

The Hammers are of course in action twice in Double Gameweek 24, with a fixture against Liverpool still to contest in a week’s time.

David Moyes has made one change to his starting XI from Saturday’s draw with Everton: Pablo Fornals (£6.0m) drops to the bench and Arthur Masuaku (£4.2m) comes in on the left flank.

Michail Antonio (£6.9m) has recovered from a thigh injury and is among the substitutes.

There is still no Lukasz Fabianski (£4.9m), so Darren Randolph (£4.5m) continues between the posts for the visitors.

Brendan Rodgers has brought back two of his first-team regulars for tonight’s game, with Ben Chilwell (£5.6m) and Youri Tielemans (£6.2m) recalled.

Christian Fuchs (£4.3m) and Dennis Praet (£5.3m) don’t even make the bench but Wilfred Ndidi (£5.0m) is named as a substitute, having made a much quicker recovery from knee surgery than first anticipated.

There are also two changes apiece for Tottenham Hotspur and Norwich City.

Having previously said he was on course for a return in early February, Jose Mourinho has named the fit-again Hugo Lloris (£5.3m) in his starting XI for the very first time.

Paulo Gazzaniga (£4.6m), fresh from a 14-point haul in Gameweek 23, makes way.

Ryan Sessegnon (£5.4m) in for Japhet Tanganga (£4.0m) is Mourinho’s other alteration.

Both of Daniel Farke’s changes are enforced, with Ben Godfrey (£4.4m) suspended and Emiliano Buendia (£6.0m) injured.

Grant Hanley (£4.0m) and full debutant Lukas Rupp (£4.5m) get the nod at centre-back and on the wing respectively.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made two changes from Manchester United’s defeat at Liverpool, one of which is enforced as Phil Jones (£4.8m) replaces the ill Victor Lindelof (£5.3m).

Juan Mata (£6.2m) comes in for Luke Shaw (£5.4m) in the other alteration as Solskjaer switches from a wing-back system to a back four.

Shaw, along with Mason Greenwood (£4.4m) and Eric Bailly (£4.9m), are among the substitutes, meaning that budget FPL defender Brandon Williams (£4.1m) gets another start at left-back.

Matthew Lowton (£4.2m) replaces Phil Bardsley (£4.3m) at right-back in Sean Dyche’s only change.


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

West Ham United XI: Randolph, Cresswell, Diop, Ogbonna, Zabaleta, Noble, Rice, Masuaku, Snodgrass, Lanzini, Haller.

Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sessegnon, Winks, Lo Celso, Alli, Lamela, Son, Lucas.

Norwich City XI: Krul, Aarons, Hanley, Zimmermann, Byram, Tettey, McLean, Rupp, Duda, Cantwell, Pukki.

Manchester United XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Jones, Maguire, Williams, Fred, Matic, Pereira, Mata, James, Martial.

Burnley XI: Pope, Lowton, Mee, Tarkowski, Taylor, Hendrick, Cork, Westwood, McNeil, Rodriguez, Wood.

    Fml I'm 0.1 off Vardy and Soyuncu to Aubameyang and Williams

    1. Cruz88
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Same! But we can do Vardy and Soy to Auba and Tanga

  7. Jellyfish
    • 7 Years

    Vardy > Kun a no brainier now I feel

    1. DAVESAVES
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Auba?

  8. SHOOTER MCGINN
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    I was toying with the idea of wildcarding next week. With Vardy injured that's just another reason to do so.

  9. Top Lad Dakes.

    Auba Grealish
    Aguero Traore/Fleck/Doucoure
    Jimenez 10.2 mid

    lot of possibilites to replace Vardy Martial. Shame I only have 1 FT and no clue

    2. Jullepuu
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I wouldn't get Aguero because of Pep. Auba is very tempting

    3. Jet5605
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      My rival played his WC and brought in Ogbonna, Noble, Haller & Abraham. Bit of a mare

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Same here. He's got Gazza as his only keeper and Richarlison playing and he's still gonna beat me.

      2. AzzaroMax99
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

      Mata always looks like he’s running in quick sand. Painfully slow

    12. M.I.A.
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Best mid 6m or under?

      1. Sim Simma 🤷 🔑 🚘

        Barnes, Cantwell

        Fleck

      5. QUEN

    13. pablo discobar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Aggy still a rotation risk, not great fixtures and no gw 28. I'm thinking vardy to auba, again no gw 28 though but safe starter

      1. Taffer
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeah and fixtures are coming thick and fast.

      2. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        who is Aggy ?

        1. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Cleans with Kim Woodburn

      3. Valar(Keith)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Aguero and auba both miss gw 28 and Aguero had his rest this week.. Aguero all the way

    14. nerd_is_the_werd
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Pereira on target for 18 points... why never me. 🙁

      • Pep Roulette
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Aguero or Auba?

      • dmkp
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        GW26: Man city v West Ham

        Aguero is going to hard to ignore as Vardy's replacement especially with that fixture

      • ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Vardy + Rashford 》》 Kun + C.Wilson worth a -4?

        1. Top Lad Dakes.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Wilson? ew.

          1. ZeBestee
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Yes, strike the iron while its hot. 3 good fix coming up.

        2. Wag the Drog
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          You have got to take a hit yes.

          1. ZeBestee
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Best striker under 7.4?

            Have Ings already.

      • RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Vardy injury bad? Just switched on sorryb

        1. Corgzzzz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          looks like a hammy.......however he did try to run it off and pulled up 5 mins later..........

        2. antis0cial
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Possible hamstring but looked like holding higher. If hamstring could be a month or so.

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

        Vardy and Moura to Auba and Doucoure? Could even punt on H.Wilson

      • Do I Not Like Orange
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Which combo do you prefer? (Both involve a hit & losing Vardy)

        A) Auba/Grealish
        B) Kun/Cantwell

      • FOMFF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        If the injuries serious, Vardy & Sidibe > Kun & Holgate

        Ryan, Button
        TAA, Lund, Rico, Kelly, Holgate
        Salah, Mane, KDB, Traore, Cantwell
        Kun, Ings, Greenwood

        Def too weak? Leave .3 ITB to upgrade next week or even do a -8?

      • Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago
