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.

      Proper original banter.

    Tony M sucks

    1. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Shooting too far away...

    2. MaticMVP
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Whole team sucks. Been a Utd fan for 25 years... Worst I've seen.

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

        Well of course

      2. Goro Majima
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 3 days ago

        40 years and this is definitely up there, but as Dragon said...the club is rotten.

        1. MaticMVP
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Yeah whole club is rotten. Needs a total restart. New owners, new director or whatever Woodward is and a new manager. And a bunch of players. It's sad.

          1. Goro Majima
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Yeah, whole club needs a clean out, hard to think of too many players you'd want to keep bar Rashford and probably AWB.

  11. Soto Ayam
    1 month, 3 days ago

    At least west ham's performance given my Salah TC more hope

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

    If I have Gazza and Vardy do I transfer them both out today for Pope/Henderson and Aguero, especially considering price rises will happen tonight (I'll still be able to afford it)

    How poor is the premiership these days except Liverpool. Such poor football and no domination. I’m a spurs fan and how are we only 6 points of top 4.

    1. Slouch87 Nirvana Scott Tale…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      No different to other national leagues.

      1. MaticMVP
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        He's point is, these days. That it's no different to other national leagues isn't a good argument.

    2. Slouch87 Nirvana Scott Tale…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      What do you mean by no domination ?

  14. Bubz
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Pope to Ryan last week is going to haunt me

    1. beric
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Before Leicester ?

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

        Yes

    2. Superballzzz

    3. denial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Yep. The whole peeing about Pope to Fabs to Mccarthy was silly. Cost me points and transfers

  15. Tonyawesome69

  18. Tony Martial
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Too much isn’t it..?

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Maybe not

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      1 month, 3 days ago

      the only real way is give up on pool mids, playing triple pool at the back. Think I will be on it soon

  19. Strchld
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Big question is, Auba or Aguero in. Probably going to pick wrong one.

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

      Auba

  20. Ibra

        Glazers have facilitated over a billion pounds worth of spending over the last 7 years! They’re in trouble if they start withdrawing
