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.

    Anaylst on BBC with a big breakdown on how well Rutiger took the goal, before finally realising it was an OG

    What’s wrong with DDG?

    He’s beyond dreadful.

    And I have him in my team....

      Nothing has changed.
      His shots to saves ratio has never been great.

      In all fairness he's made a couple of decent one handed saves but at fault in all 3 goals

    How did this side lose to Manutd 3 times in this season itself? Maybe Manutd just underperforming

    I know he looked tired but Ole taking Bruno off at half time looks a bad decision now.

      One loss ,a terrible performance at that , but nevertheless it isnt a reason to suddenly call the team trash, arsenal were apparently trash then they beat Citeh twice and the ,supposed untouchables, in Liverpool and now Arsenal are being talked off as potential contenders next season wiv a couple of additions and auba staying.
      Media, pundits etc are fickle

      Utd dont have the defense to truly be a front runner for the title, dark horse perhaps but definitely not front runners just yet. Midfield up is solid and needs to mature. Two seasons time things could be very different and utd have the potential to be front runners by then , again though, defensive investment is a must before any other additions are made if any .

      It cannot be denied though that UTD have made great strides this season, in particular since Bruno's arrival but being up there with liverpool in taking points off all rivals in the league is a good signs

    Rashford has got away with murder since the restart. He's had a couple of lovely touches in some games to contribute some nice goals and assists, but his overall play has actually been shocking. He gives the ball away all the time, can't make a simple pass and very rarely actually runs at defenders anymore. He'd rather stand still and try Hollywood passes like Pogba, except Pogba can actually do it. Likewise he seems to think he's a free kick taker even though he scores about 1 in 50 and the rest don't even hit the target.

    I like the kid but he needs to start getting the basics right.

    This is what happens when you think you are the best but you have only played against the relegation teams.

    Man United looked like title contenders 2 games ago but this performance reminds us that they won’t be anytime soon.

    I can’t believe what I’m watching.
