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.

    I hope he doesn't make it worse by playing on, whatever the injury is and end up like Rashford.

    Soyuncu and Vardy to Lascelles and Auba worth a hit?
    A bit early I know 🙂

    1. Queens of the South Age

      • 2 Years

      Auba is a great shout.

  3. POLSKA GOLA

    Did Vardy to Aguero yesterday, looked like Aguero was rising at over 100% and I had exact money, somehow no rise but would have to do the same transfer today

    Time to get dat man Kun, or maybe Auba?

    1. Fred54
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I'm getting Auba because getting Kun would be the sensible move

  6. HuttonDressedasLahm
    • 10 Years

    Well, that makes next weeks transfer a bit more obvious!

    Vardy injured is fun for the game. Be interesting who people bring in. And frees up some funds

    1. Zladan

      I’m looking at a Callum Wilson differential.

    Was always going to sell Vardy after this gw.

    Auba in for me

      are you Gareth Southgate?

  14. Marmalade Forest
    • 2 Years

    No biggy that Vardy loss really is it? Almost everyone active and serious about FPL will have him and will now get rid of him. Everyone gets 1 point this week and uses the FT to get rid for next week.

    1. Danno - Emre Canada
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Well it is, if you wanted to remove Vardy next week and maybe get a march on rivals

    2. james 101
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Unless you already got rid of him

      In which case it’s s small advantage

    3. @ocprodigy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      I have DGW Firmino I brought in.. so no..

  15. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    No Vardy in the Carabao Cup 2nd leg at Villa Park...

    BGW28 could take a turn!

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

      A Villa win would be perfect to go Auba for the 3 GWs before the blank and then back to Vardy

    2. HashAttack
      • 2 Years

      definately - could be close

  16. sminkypinky
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    With Mo, Mane and KDB... how are people getting Kun for Vardy?

    1. DAZZ
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Lose one of the LFC boys for Robbo.

      1. sminkypinky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Hits required. Two for me.

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

      Mads Vardy to fleck Kun probably for me. Just fear aguero rotation.

    3. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Thinking Grealish/Vardy > Dendoncker/Kun (-4). Leaves Cantwell or maybe Fleck as 4th mid.

    4. SH
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Money itb from Son/Alli to Martial/Sarr

  17. DAZZ
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Might have to hit the WC 🙁

  18. Do I Not Like Orange
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Grealish/Vardy > Dendoncker/Kun (-4), yes?

    Will start Cantwell as 4th mid next GW the swap him to Fleck.

    1. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Why are you getting rid of Grealish?

      1. Do I Not Like Orange
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Because it's the only way I can get Kun without losing KDB/Salah/Mane or Trent. And every Vardy owner will have Kun by next GW.

  23. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
    • 2 Years

    Vardy to Ings is surely most sensible? Should have got Ings weeks ago, but stuck with Vardy, Jiminez and Rash

    1. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
      • 2 Years

      Or I could afford Auba... Never owned him though

    Auba not as much differential as I thought he would be, but gonna do it regardless

    Unbelievable. I sold Barnes and Jimmy and now Barnes has 2 goals in 2 games and Jimmy will surely score to spite me. Ings and Felipe were the replacements. Anyone else with a worse transfer than this ?
