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.

    3 mins from Chelsea CS points being added. Cruel from the ref.

    Vardy to Jesus for GW38?

  4. Mr Arsenal
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Ole has been overplaying his first XI.

    Now he’s paying the price.

    1. SouthCoastSaint
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Freak head injuries ?

      1. Mr Arsenal
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        They look so leggy. No zip like they had 2-3 games ago.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Playing a better team...

    Who is essential on a FH for 38+?

    1. Stand By Mee
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Dilva, Antonio and Auba imo

  6. Hakim Ziyech
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Why is de gea still at Utd? De gea should be sold to one of those Spanish/ Italian giants

    1. Bookkeeper
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Because UTD believe he is the best GK in the world, reflected by the new contract and 350k pw wages. No sense that club.

      1. The Littlest Robbo
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        This

      2. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Incredible. They could as well do a swap deal + cash for Oblak

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Hendos on 10k a week, DDG on £375k a week ???

      1. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Not sure Deano is on 10k/wk. If they don’t sell de gea now, I wonder when they would realize they should

  7. keefyefc

    Roy Keane give us your opinion on that goal

  8. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    No Chelsea YC in that half...

    Kicking lumps!

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      United buy ref ..
      VAR too
      😉

  9. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Momentum is a big thing

    Ole messing with the tactics and team today may upset the rhythm of the team

    The reason they were so impressive was due to an unchanged side

    1. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      And easy opponents

    2. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Fully agree, Jose played the same 11 last 3 games and we’ve managed to win lol

    3. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Chelsea are playing aggressively. That is what Utd should do too. It is not about the tactics imo

      1. Grounderz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Tired legs second half.

    4. Bookkeeper
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      You forgot to add that they beat Brighton, Bournemouth, Norwich, Palace and Villa during that impressive run 😉

    5. Dr. Agabuse
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Strange really

    6. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Second half everything will be normalised

  10. Dr. Agabuse
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Baldock to James for my final FT?
    Takes corners.
    Will play 343 vs Wolves too

    1. Dr. Agabuse
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Hazz, will James start GW38?

  11. Jet5605
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Looks like Watford about to sack Pearson. Would be good to see Roy Keane come in on a one week deal

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      He’s been sacked

    2. Dthinger
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      So how many managers is that this season? Must be a record, no?

  12. Bruno Commando
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    On FH now, what's the better option?

    A) Martinez, Pieters, O'Connell, Jesus
    B) Ederson, Bardsley, Egan, Ings + 0.3 ITB

    Squad:
    ________
    TAA // ______ // _______
    Bruno // KDB // Dilva // Antonio // Salah
    Kane // ________

    Button // Diop // Connolly // Tanganga

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      A

    2. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      B

  13. Mr Arsenal
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Roy Keane is on his way to Wembley as we speak

  14. Fire Chief Moe
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    What is everyone thinking on Kane v Auba FH now?

    1. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Both

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Thinking both.

    3. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Getting both

    4. The Littlest Robbo
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      I've got both along with jesus

    5. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Need both IMO

    6. Fire Chief Moe
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      I would have to sacrifice Salah to get both, not sure about that.

    7. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Both the two of them. 🙂

  15. Dynamic Duos
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Chelsea hard, United soft

  16. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Mendy (NOR) or Tarkowski (BHA)?

    1. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Mendy

  17. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Eight assists for Azpi this season. Second highest for Chelsea. Far greater pick than Alonso these days.

    1. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      In fpl only 3 more assists and 2 less goals even though he's played over double the minutes

      1. Forza Papac
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        And how many bonus points?

        1. mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          9 Vs 16, again in less than half the minutes..so other than security of starts you're wrong on every account

    2. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      If Alonso played every week he would be the better but I agree Azpi is the better option now

    3. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Not as explosive, but yes, I agree. Much more consistent

  18. kamdaraji
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    should I do Doherty and Foden > Dilva and Pieters for free for GW38?

    1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x

      • 11 Years

      1. kamdaraji
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        I will be in Cornwall next week and want to enjoy my holiday without worry for FF lol

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years

          Unlucky on both counts.

          1. kamdaraji
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            yeah. tbh had bad luck all season. top 100K might be just out of reach

    2. Dr. Agabuse
      • 8 Years

      Do it

  19. FDMS All Starz
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Thoughts on FH?

    Martinez
    Pieters - Bardsley - Diop
    Salah - Martial - Sterling - Dilva
    Kane - Auba - Jesus

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Very envious

    2. Dr. Agabuse

      Delicous

    3. Amey

      1. FDMS All Starz
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        105.7...but I do have Martins(3.9), guendozi(4.1), Simpson(3.9), Brendon Williams(3.9) as subs

    4. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      0.3 short of that. Very nice!

      1. FDMS All Starz
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Antonio for Dilva could always work

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          For his last league match?? Surely not! He’ll do well.

          Just realised it’s 0.2 I’m short. Haha small enough to be really annoying!

          You not worried about the potential weakness of the defence

  20. Bielsa's Bucket
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    FH draft (0.1itb) tried to put those still playing for something - also Silva final game, so would be no brainer.

    Ederson
    Tarkowski, Gomez, Pieters
    Martial, Son, DSilva, Fernandes
    Kane, Rashford, Auba

    Button, Kelly, Lamptey, Dendoncker

  21. Dr. Agabuse
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Crazy last week.
    Kane
    Auba
    Sterling
    KDB
    Salah
    Mane

    all looking poised to haul..
    and Leicester Bennett Morgan Justin defending vs
    Bruno
    Martial
    Rash

    I wonder if Kane's price will be much lower next season. If so and he is 9.0 or below I will probably start the next season with him. Thoughts? Kane is back?
