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.

  11. diesel001

    Barnes was onside because Cresswell's outstreched leg (trying to block Perreira's shot) kept him onside

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

      He was behind the ball when it was played, so either way. Wasn't offside.

    2. GARY AND JAMIE
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      No he was onside cos he was behind the ball

    3. Here's Tom with the We…
      • 8 Years

      That’s what it looked like to me.

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

      Or because Barnes was behind the ball...

    Hoping Salah gets a hat trick in each game and pool keep a clean sheet in both so he ends up with 126pts after baps of course. Too much to ask? Lol

    1. ALI_G
      • 2 Years

    Snoddy must have TC'd himself.

      An assist is a haul? Bless

    Vardy and Maddison are over for this season

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Wait till second half.

  16. Yank Revolution
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Let's go Hammers, get a goal here (Soyuncu seller)

    1. Annie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      They’ll definitely score

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

      Hoping for this as well

  17. Differentiator
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Hauller 2 + 2 would be a successful DGW 🙂

  18. RedWolf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Worth ditching Maddison for Barnes? Not managed to watch much of Leicester, but he seems to have lost all form

    1. Yank Revolution
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Think Id swear off getting any more Leicester players right now

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

      Read on a Leicester forum, that the reason he's playing so bad, is because he is asked to play as a LW. Seems like it this match so far as well.

    3. GARY AND JAMIE
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Maybe to Martial in my case. He is just floating through games and dead ball delivery is poor

  19. Yome
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    When the hell will Solskjaer start Greenwood?

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

      Sunday

      1. Here's Tom with the We…
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        He only wants young, English, talented players. Oh wait....

    2. JamieNumber4
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Was very predictable he wouldn’t start tonight tbf

      1. Here's Tom with the We…
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Why was it?

        1. JamieNumber4
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Because we had the exact same situation and outcome earlier in the season.

      2. Yome
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Surely with Rashford out he should play a lot more

        1. JamieNumber4
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Agree that he should but when Rashy was out earlier in the season Ole wasn’t starting him then either

          1. Yome
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Yes exactly, I don’t know why he doesn’t give him more game time. The lad is eager to play and has so much talent

            1. JamieNumber4
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 3 days ago

              He’s done plenty with what little gametime he’s been given as well. Not sure what he has to do really

    3. TOPCAT1960
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Hearing that he is trying to protect the young man - but he needs to gamble a bit ?

      1. Yome
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        He does for sure especially if he wants the fans to back him.
        Greenwood has been superb every time he played

    4. El Fenomeno R9
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Hope he comes in 29th minute for James/Mata/Pereira

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

      Solskjaer is jealous and scared that Greenwood will be more loved by United fans than himself.

    6. Rock n Grohl
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      When he learns the art of management and how to set a team up properly. (Utd fan).
