Dugout Discussion

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.

        Should have be aggresive and sell both rash and Son for KDB and Torres as planned. Would have been great -8.

        Now I need Son to explode against Arsenal and CPL

        Another GW of what could have been with both Chilwell & James, more points left behind...

        A frustrating duo to own!

          • 11 Years

        So if United win their game in hand they are joint 3rd and only 2 points behind top placed Spurs.

        What do the Ole out brigade make of that?

      20. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        4 point save to deny Giroud.

      22. Zladan
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Giroud passing to Lloris means Chilwell lost a bap.

      23. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Chillwell and James, love ya lads!

        3 blanks, brilliant. Will be sorely punished for not ditching Son for KDB or Kane for Vardy....

        One of them leaving next week to enable KDB in I reckon. Probably Kane

      27. The 12th Man

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

        Kane -> Vardy (C) could be brilliant, pending the Fulham game.
