Aurier starts again as Leicester and Spurs name unchanged teams

Leicester City continue their push for a UEFA Champions League qualification place this afternoon.

The Foxes head south face to Spurs in their latest pursuit of three points, with kick-off at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at 16:00 BST.

The team news is very straightforward as both managers have named unchanged starting XIs following wins in Gameweek 36+.

That means another start for Serge Aurier (£5.1m), who has travelled back from France after spending time with his family in the wake of his brother’s death.

It also means a second successive run-out for Luke Thomas (£4.0m) for the visitors, with the budget Fantasy Premier League defender again featuring at left wing-back.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are without Ricardo Pereira (£6.2m), James Maddison (£7.3m), Ben Chilwell (£5.5m), Christian Fuchs (£4.2m) and Marc Albrighton (£5.1m) through injury, with Caglar Soyuncu (£4.9m) suspended.

Dele Alli (£8.3m) is still unavailable for Spurs but Juan Foyth (£4.8m) returns from a lengthy lay-off and is among the substitutes.

Only one Leicester player has an effective ownership of more than 1% in the top 10k: that, unsurprisingly, is Jamie Vardy (£9.7m), who sits in just over one in five of these squads.

Aurier has been benched by more than half of his owners within the top 10k, meanwhile.

Mourinho’s starting XI may have been unchanged in the last three games but the formation continues to evolve, with Son Heung-min (£9.7m) here playing out wide on the left of a 4-2-3-1 rather than up top alongside Harry Kane (£10.9m).


Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies; Sissoko, Winks; Lo Celso, Lucas, Son; Kane.

Leicester City XI: Schmeichel; Bennett, Morgan, Evans; Justin, Ndidi, Tielemans, Thomas; Perez, Vardy, Barnes.

    Is that not a yellow for Azpi or is it allowed to kick each other in the genitals?

        Var can’t give yellows

        1. Salarrivederci

          Allowed then. Burnley should add ballkicking to their defensive training. They won't concede ever again.

  2. Gobigorgohome

    why no red card for azpi yet?

    Concussion protocol needed after Bruno head injury

    Is 27 off 3 players any good? Asking for a friend.

      I think Sterling and Dilva have to start GW 38

      1. Mr Arsenal

        What a dive!

      I'm 40-odd points outside the money slots in my mini league so need some kind of miracle to get anything. With this in mind i am deliberately getting all the differentials and losing all of the sensible picks that the players abive me have, like Pope, TAA, KDB and Bruno. Only going for players who have the capability of scoring big, even if unlikely. Like 3 defenders with a penchant for scoring who nobody abive me owns.

      Martinez
      Digne, VVD, alonso
      Son, dsilva, antonio, martial
      Kane, aubameyang, vardy

      Bench: 3.9 keeper, foden, thomas, pieters

      It's liberating!

        Super team
        Go jesus instead of Vardy

        1 year, 6 months ago

        VVD instead of TAA is not a differential it’s asking for trouble. If you’re going differential go all out and get someone from another team

        1. Daniel Jebbison
          • 12 Years
          1 year, 6 months ago

          Go with VVD. I have him too. Decent punt

          Very good point - any oyher recommendations? Looking for defenders with attacking credentials

        Wow, crazy good FH team

    5. Bookkeeper
      • 5 Years

      Is McGuire the most expensive defender in the world?

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        VVD no?

        1. inactive
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 6 months ago

          VVD 75, Maguire 80

          1. Daniel Jebbison
            • 12 Years
            1 year, 6 months ago

            Is Kepa more expensive?

            1. inactive
              • 11 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

              Most expensive GK 71m

      2. inactive
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        Yes

        1. Bookkeeper
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 6 months ago

          Pool underpaid then 😉

      Current FH-team

      Martinez

      Too dependent on burnley defence?

      1. JollyGoodYellows
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        Personally I wouldn't go all Burnley defence. Could pay off though.

    7. Hulk Smash

      You can really tell Chelsea have more experience playing this formation than United.

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        Agree. Well spoted

        1. Hulk Smash
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 6 months ago

          I would say we've rested more of our key players too but I don't know if any of us know exactly what Chelsea's best team is

      Is it just me, but since restart does there appear to be an unprecedented number of injuries the meat and two veg.

      Almost every match .

    9. Rainer

      Rash range

    10. Daniel Jebbison

      Bruno free kick coming. No Kepa thought

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years

        Nailed in Daniel

      Pretty happy non-owner of any players today.

      1. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        I’ve been ruined in my ML by rival having double Southampton defence

    13. DAZZ
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Fernandes been giving the ball away a lot

      1. Ógie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        I think Azpi took one off him.

        1. Duffy Dunk
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Nice

      2. Hulk Smash
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        Same as the last game. He just needs a rest

    14. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Kepa is conceding that 100%. DDG maybe too

      1. HashAttack
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        He wouldn't have been able to reach that high

        1. Daniel Jebbison
          • 12 Years
          1 year, 6 months ago

          Well said

    15. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Bruno is exhausted isn’t he?

      Considering going no United for FH 38.

      Bruno exhausted and Martial doesn’t seem to haul away.

      Thoughts?

      1. Gobigorgohome

        Another game to go.

        1. TheDragon
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 6 months ago

          Yes but how does that influence it?

      3. Salarrivederci
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        Captain Morgan, Bennet and Fuchs.
        Even a tired Lingard could bag a couple of goals.

      Running backwards 60 yards to save counter attack.
      Ohhh I love Bruno Fernandes

      If Willian got that cross right it would have been Giroud v Williams in the air.

      Phew...

    19. TeddiPonza
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      How is this FH team?

      Ederson
      Digne Pieters Stephens (Long Williams)
      Dilva Salah Martial Antonio (Guendouzi)
      Jesus Auba Kane

      Pending team news. If Sterling starts: Salah to Sterling and Ederson to Pope.

      Thoughts?

    20. Mind över Mata
      • 10 Years

      Initial thoughts?

      A) Salah -> Sterling
      B) Pulisic -> Dilva

    21. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Chelsea looking good. Could be a mistake to have captained Salah 😆

      1. Daniel Jebbison

        How could you

    24. Rainer

      Really targeting Bruno.

      They are clearing tryingbto injury Bruno

      I did Kane + Son to Sterling + Ings for a -4 after GW35. Since then, Kane has scored brace in both games, my captain sterling last week got benched and Ings missed a pen this GW. Now i am fully expecting Sterling to get benched again.

      1. AC/DC AFC

        Quite likely and always was I'm afraid to say

      2. Duffy Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        Another example of how crazy this end of season has been.

      Triple Utd attack GW 1 for me

      1. Hulk Smash
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        It won't be as affordable as it is now. Could cost you the best part of 30m

      Anyone else got a 'hail Mary' captain lined up for 38+?

      About time Stanislas weaved some magic. 🙂
