Kane aiming to extend eight-game run without a blank as Rodon starts in defence

Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated fixture of the weekend sees Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur clash at Stamford Bridge.

Kick-off in west London is at 16:30 GMT.

There are no real surprises in terms of team news, with both managers making just one change apiece from the sides they sent out in Gameweek 9.

Frank Lampard’s sole alteration was widely anticipated, with Thiago Silva (£5.5m) replacing Antonio Rudiger (£4.5m) at the heart of the Blues’ defence.

The fit-again Christian Pulisic (£8.2m) is back among the substitutes, alongside Kai Havertz (£8.3m).

Jose Mourinho’s only tweak to his line-up was an enforced one and also comes at centre-half, with Toby Alderweireld (£5.4m) ruled out with a groin problem.

Premier League rookie Joe Rodon (£5.0m) gets the nod over Davinson Sanchez (£5.3m) to partner Eric Dier (£4.9m).

There is plenty of interest in this one from a Fantasy Premier League perspective, with Harry Kane (£10.9m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) the second and third most-owned players in the game.

Five of Chelsea’s starting XI, including three of their back four, also boast double-digit ownerships, with Ben Chilwell (£6.1m) the most popular option among that quintet.

Kane was, in fact, the most-sold forward of Gameweek 10, with just over 200,000 Fantasy managers offloading the England international despite his impressive run of form: not since the opening weekend has the Spurs striker blanked.

Chelsea XI: Mendy, James, Zouma, Thiago Silva, Chilwell, Kante, Kovacic, Mount, Ziyech, Abraham, Werner.

Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Aurier, Rodon, Dier, Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Sissoko, Ndombele, Bergwijn, Son, Kane.

    Where are all the form over fixtures crew now after going with Kane and Son over KDB and Bruno? All gone into hiding it seems

      Okay Captain Hindsight.

      I sold Son for Bruno last week and it only just worked out

      This week I sold Kane for Vardy and we're yet to know if it will work out.

      Sometimes form works out, sometimes fixtures work out. It's largely luck at the end of the day, so why get noisey about it?

        How is it hindsight?

      2. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Is it hindsight if he was saying it would happen beforehand?

        Not really hindsight if he sold them though. I sold Kane and Son this week - the amount of patronising disapproval I got on reddit for even suggesting it was hard to take. Honestly, it very nearly turned my head. 0-0 is better than I had hoped for though!

      Yes, and Son punish sellers etc etc. So toxic these days.

    3. Olson

      The sensible thing to do is to own Kane, Son, Bruno and KdB but don't let that get in the way of your nitwit opinion

      o/

      have Bruno, got Torres instead of KDB 2pts difference so no big deal

  2. Londongeezaa

    0-0 a great result for the rest.

    Wolves 4 at the back, unusual. Come on Podence, gimme some goals

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Lineup pic has 343. Marcal RCB. Neto RWB.

      Sounds wired though. Back 4 makes more sense.

  10. Super Saints

    FFS me Kane and Son, rival's Chilwell, how can a defender outscore them both!?

    Kane to Vardy this GW could prove an absolute masterstroke, in more ways than one

    1. ...al
      • 11 Years

    2. Old Man

      I did just that and then failed to check that my captain change to him had gone through. Grealish(c) it is. Doh!

    Kane is such a good player but in this system he's way to Deep most of the time, be perfect when fixtures turn

  17. Rainer
