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.

    no chance of Fernandes rest v WH if MU lose today right?

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      No chance regardless other than injury

      1. Mr Arsenal
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Even if he has to play on crutches, he will start.

      They cant afford to by what Mou did for them

    3. Bubz

      Bruno is never getting rested

      Could happen. The Leicester game is the decider regardless.

    Can get this -4 side if I move tonight

    Ederson
    Boly Egan Digne
    Mo Martial Son KdB Dilva
    Kane Wood

    Hendo Greenwood Lord Lascelles

    Tempted

    Kane was always the move I meant to make. Bruno to Son would be the time critical one. Won’t go there as Antonio likely good too if I want but ...

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years

      Do it

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 2 days ago

        You reckon?

        Haven’t checked prices for months but I assume Son will rise tonight

  6. Mr Arsenal
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    United toothless.

  7. FOO FIGHTER

    Looks like Greenwood going to start vs Palace?

    1. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Yeah

    2. FOO FIGHTER

      Oops, West ham

  8. Louis Van Gaalstones

    De Gea's having a Casillas, Romero should have started

  9. Rainer

    Time for Pogba to show his worth.

    1. diesel001
      • 3 Years

      £90m?

    This all started with Ronaldo. He was arguably the best keeper in the world up to that point lol

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      He was in the conversation for it, but never thought he was given Neuer etc

  11. kamdaraji
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Giroud was in!

  12. Bookkeeper
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    This is more like the Ole Solskjaer I know!

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

    Unlucky Giroud the ball was going in at that pace if on target.

    Chelsea 2 DeGea 0

        Yep

  17. Hakim Ziyech

    Antonio 4 goals imminent

  18. Giggs Boson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    DDG seemed unbeatable for many seasons, saving United's bacon game after game, and sweeping up player of the season awards. But ever since the World Cup he's turned into Karius. I don't understand what's happened to him...

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

      He got the yips?

    2. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Amazing what lack of confidence does to goalkeepers

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Can happen to keepers ala joe hart, Paul Robinson, horelio gomes etc

  19. kamdaraji
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    De Gea making Giroud and Mount look messiesque!

  20. RECKLESS
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    What counts in epl table when goal diff is same? Example Lei and Manutd. Goals for or head to head?

    Pathetic from Ole to drop Romero who has been the cup keeper and done well. it's not like Lol Gea on current form is even a better GK...

  22. kamdaraji
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    De Gea 3bps!

  23. Naby K8a
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    400k a week contract. Good luck shifting that

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

      Alexis or DDG? 😆

    2. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 6 Years

      Do a swap with Bale, same issue

    3. Bookkeeper
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Good luck shifting the slow Matic too!

    4. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Alisson on 90k a week

      1. Naby K8a
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Cheap

    Two new coaches in the FA Cup final, at this rate

    That's... Interesting

  25. DAZZ
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Now they aren’t playing Bournemouths, Palace’s and the likes of Aston Villa, a half decent side and we see the true Man Utd.

    1. Zilla
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      weak one

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      You mean the true DDG?

    3. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Think its moreso due to the different system and personnel tbh

      1. DAZZ
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        It’s nice to see them drop back to earth.

    4. Treadstone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Let's face it they havn't played a decent side in weeks.Thats why we all went big on them in our fpl teams.

    5. RECKLESS
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      3 wins if 3 vs Chelsea aint bad. But dont feel insecure and fear about old Manutd being back soon. Need a Lindelif replacement then maybe but Ole already says they have many CBs so wont happen for 2 years

  26. kamdaraji
    • 11 Years

    Bayern will wallop this Chelsea team again in the 2nd leg of champs league

  27. Woy_is_back

    I'm praying Man U lose. Hammers will pay big time
