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.

    Lloris out of nowhere claims the 3 BAPs

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      It was that last save.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE

        3 months, 7 days ago

    Well as a Kane, Son, Werner, Chilwell and James owner. I guess this result isnt too bad, I was always going to lsoe out somewhere unless everyone got an atatckign return

    Lowish scoring week for all I guess

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      That's a decent outcome
      15 points from 2 defenders

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

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

      Not too many popular scorers this week.

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

          Nah. He got his clean sheet like all other defensive assets but all got 3 saves. Worth the 3 BAPs... even if the saves were simple lol

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

        Love that as only owning Chillwell

          • 4 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Never mind Top 10k, three figures rank incoming 😀

          1. Chucky
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            lol still outside top 1m but vardy hattie might change that...

      • Dacra
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Now Jiminez please.

      • Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        People crying over Lloris 1 extra point. Seriously sad.

        1. Black Knights
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          They’re crying over losing their Chelsea defender baps.

          1. Mr. O'Connell
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Yeah i know

      • Maddamotha
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Should be more transparancy around the baps.

          1. ivantys
              3 months, 7 days ago

              Save is only +2. Nowhere did it state "Big Save" or "Key Save"

            • Duke Silver ☑
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              Still would like to see what adjustments they make after full time though.

          2. fusen
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            It's annoying as the official FPL website used to make the stats available that were used to calculate the final score, so I had a page previously where you could see exactly what state was making up what amount of the total BPS

            This season or last they completely hid that data as realistically they didn't need to make it public, but it hides exactly how the BPS is being added up.

            I can't find a free source of the opta stats that make it up either, which is a shame

        1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Might just end up doing Double Chelsea defence set and forget, CS vs United,Spurs and Sevilla is no joke

          1. THFC4LIFE
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Been onit for a while now, James and Chilwell

            1. Trophé Mourinho
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 7 days ago

              same been on it for a while also, I compared James and Chilwell. Decided both was best

        2. Steve Chance
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Kane fail.

        3. jimmyabs1987
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Top of the league! Would take 4 points from those last 2 fixtures, now to smash the gooners next week 🙂

        4. DAZZ
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Can’t bring myself to sell Bruno. But finding it awfully difficult to fit Salah in without seling Bruno/KDB. Vardy might have to make way...

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Thats my plan. Vardy goes for Salah.

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

            Just go without for now and hope Jota covers him to an extent

        5. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Zouma Chillwell double up is awesome

          1. Peter Ouch
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Mendy Chilwell here

            Only positive from this week

        6. Peter Ouch
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Its a bad gw when you have to use your 2nd sub from the bench.
          Thank you Mr Bissouma

        7. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Another pathetic casual favored GW... Vardy blank tomorrow to sum it up

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

            Not casual favoured at all.

            It was mainly differentials coming through this week.

          2. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Not certain about that as Chilwell, R James and Mendy owner who has ditched both Kane and Son gor their difficult fixture run.

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

            Vardy isn't casual? If son and kane had scored then it would be a casual favoured gw. But obviously they weren't going to because it was a tough game and mourinho parked the bus, surprise surprise

          4. JOELIO8701
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Why is it a casual week? Are KDB, Bruno, Wilson, Chilwell, Dias not good picks?

        8. Duke Silver ☑
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Another disappointing FPL performance from Werner. Might have to ditch him in order to get KdB in.

          1. HuttonDressedasLahm
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            CS point though since he’s a mid 🙂

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

          I have decided. Fek Cancelo and Ziyech. Im getting James and Mahrez. Then mahrez to salah next week

        10. pundit of punts
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          I did Martial + Richarlison + Ziyech + Coady + Bissouma > KDB + Jota + Bamford + Dias + Davis for -16 last night. Had exact cash and wanted to put out a lot of fires once and for all.

          Gives me -

          Martinez
          Dias - KWP - Lamptey
          Salah - KDB - Bruno - Grealish - Jota
          Vardy - Bamford

          Button - Taylor - Mitchell - Davis

          Worth it? 🙂

            • 11 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Team looks good but...a -16 will be hard to pay off

        11. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          You know what, I might actually be on for a good game week here. Nothing spectacular but just chipping away. Look like James and Chilwell will be in the bonus then?

        12. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Reguilon, Chillwell & Son owner (and Kane seller) so quite happy 🙂

        13. DA Minnion
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          A day later and sterling is still punishing me with Kilman benched and no other sub.

        14. Lindelol
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          So any baps for chilly?

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

            Nice pair.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 7 days ago

            James and Chilwell both drawn on 2 baps

          3. Rinseboy
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            2 I think

          4. Lindelol
            • 2 Years

            Great

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            34 with Vardy (C), Podence, Martinez and Coufal left.

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

          Werner + Klich to Brewster and KDB for -4?

          Was tempted to wait another week but not convinced on Werner still and no KDB scares me vs. Fulham!

        17. Rinseboy
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Based on that game and upcoming fixtures lose Ziyech or Son for KDB/Sterling?

          1. In Bale We Trust
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Do you have Kane as well? If so son

        18. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Reason lloris is getting 3 baps

          He completed his 30th pass in injury time. With an accuracy over 90 that meant 4 bps

          Then add 2 bps for the last save

          1. Nightcrawler
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Over 80*

          Spurs top of the league after that yawnfest is an injustice to football.
