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?

    Ole has been overplaying his first XI.

    Now he’s paying the price.

      Freak head injuries ?

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

    Who is essential on a FH for 38+?

    1. Roni! Toni! Toney!
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Dilva, Antonio and Auba imo

  6. Party time
      1 year, 6 months ago

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

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

          This

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

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

          1. Party time
              1 year, 6 months ago

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

          Roy Keane give us your opinion on that goal

          No Chelsea YC in that half...

          Kicking lumps!

            United buy ref ..

          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

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 6 months ago

            And easy opponents

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

          3. Party time
              1 year, 6 months ago

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

                Tired legs second half.

            • Bookkeeper
              • 5 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

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

            • Dr. Agabuse
              • 9 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

              Strange really

            • Amey
              • 3 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

              Second half everything will be normalised

          4. Dr. Agabuse
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 6 months ago

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

            1. Dr. Agabuse
              • 9 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

              Hazz, will James start GW38?

            • 7 Years

            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
              • 5 Years

              He’s been sacked

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

            • 7 Years

            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

            Roy Keane is on his way to Wembley as we speak

          8. Fire Chief Moe
            • 11 Years
            1 year, 6 months ago

            What is everyone thinking on Kane v Auba FH now?

            1. ritzyd
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

              Both

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

              Thinking both.

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

              Getting both

            4. Pep's Money Laundry
              • 6 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

              I've got both along with jesus

            5. Sun Jihai
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

              Need both IMO

            6. Fire Chief Moe
              • 11 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

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

            7. Little Red Lacazette
              • 5 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

              Both the two of them. 🙂

          9. Dynamic Duos

            Chelsea hard, United soft

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 6 months ago

            Mendy (NOR) or Tarkowski (BHA)?

            1. mynameisq
              • 8 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

              Mendy

          11. Forza Papac
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 6 months ago

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

            1. mynameisq
              • 8 Years
              1 year, 6 months 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
                • 6 Years
                1 year, 6 months ago

                And how many bonus points?

                1. mynameisq
                  • 8 Years
                  1 year, 6 months 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
              • 5 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

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

            3. Nomar
              • 12 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

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

          12. kamdaraji
            • 12 Years

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

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

                  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

            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

            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?
