The first of two Premier League matches to take place on Sunday sees newly promoted West Bromwich Albion entertain last season’s fifth-place side, Leicester City.
Kick-off at the Hawthorns is at 14:00 BST.
Much of the Fantasy interest in this fixture, unsurprisingly, is in the visitors.
Four of the Foxes’ assets boast double-digit Fantasy Premier League ownerships at the time of writing.
By contrast, just one of Albion’s starting XI, Matheus Pereira (£6.0m), features in more than 1% of FPL squads.
There were no huge shocks upon the release of the teamsheets, with James Maddison (£7.0m) only match-fit enough for a place among the substitutes.
Jamie Vardy (£10.0m), the most-owned player in today’s game, leads the line for Brendan Rodgers’ side.
A whopping 80% of his attacking returns last season arrived against sides who finished 10th or below.
Timothy Castagne (£5.5m) is handed his Premier League debut, while James Justin (£4.5m) also gets a start at the back.
Pereira is joined by Grady Diangana (£5.5m) and Callum Robinson (£5.5m) in the hosts’ attack, with all three players hooking up with the Baggies again after successful loan spells in 2019/20.
Just five of West Brom’s 14 Championship clean sheets last season came at the Hawthorns – the first not arriving until February.
West Bromwich Albion XI: Johnstone, O’Shea, Ajayi, Bartley, Furlong, Livermore, Sawyers, Gibbs, Pereira, Diangana, Robinson.
Leicester City XI: Schmeichel, Justin, Ndidi, Soyuncu, Castagne, Mendy, Praet, Tielemans, Perez, Barnes, Vardy.
