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.

      Cancelo here me blame for only 10.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Unfortunate that, very surprised Mendy started 2 games this week.
        Not too bothered about Kilman, probably just a one pointer anyway

    Kane -> Vardy could work out absolutely beautifully this week.

    1. TOLV TUMS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Here’s hoping!

  5. Noah’s Ark

      Don't you own Kane and Son?

    3. Keeptrying

      I'd actually say there is less off a template than in previous years!

      Rodon surely minus BPS for that error

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3 months, 7 days ago

        Should be

    • Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Need Kilman to stay off the pitch so I get the Dallas 8 pointer.

    • Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Rodon removing himself from the BPS race, excellent.

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

      Looks like I wilcarded into a much worse team. No Sterling, Cancelo and now his backup Kilman is dropped. Nightmare.

    • Sco
      • 7 Years

      Lo Celso should be fined 2 weeks wages for that ffs.
