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.

    Chilwell has got my main rival nearly 60 points since he got him in, crazy!

      I am honestly happy with my James pick at 5.0

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

        Yeah was a good purchase.

    Chilwell hasn't blanked this season. Let that sink in.

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      This! He's crushed me into oblivion in my ML, outscored all my players I think

    2. ivantys
        3 months, 7 days ago

        While missing 3 games as well, Robbo wouldn't match him.

      • Rupert The Horse

        I didn’t know that. Spectacular.

      50 with Martinez, Watkins, Grealish, Vardy to go. And banked a transfer. A Villa masterclass would be delightful

      1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Maybe goodbye

      2. John Nerdelbaum
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        You can give him the Pool game because you won't be playing him there
        See where you are then?

      3. lugs
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        sold him already this week as part of a -8, the other 2 players in the hit didn't play either lol

    7. Oooo Matron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Any thoughts here? Looking to move Kane on, but not sure for who but 12.0 to play with.

      McCarthy
      Robertson Chillwell Konsa
      Fernandes Grealish Jota KDB
      Kane DCL Bamford

      Subs: Semedo, Anguissa, Lampety

      1. AC Yew
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Kane to Wilson upgrade mid to fund Salah?

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

      Interested to see if we'll see defensive competence from Arsenal tonight. Could impact the minds of Kane cappers and holders.

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

      Parting gift from Semedo would be so great

    10. Londongeezaa
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      It’s been a low scoring week with no stand out performances (Mahrez aside).

      Only real potential for tears is with a captain Vardy hat trick 🙂

    11. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Is this the end of Kilman?

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

      Buying Ziyech has literally ruined my season. No enjoyment any more.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        He will haul very soon. Am bringing him in for next gw.

      2. John Nerdelbaum
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        He's had two blanks

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

          I didnt want him, just regrets looking at him in my team. Cost me 7 points last week and this week, and will cost me a hit to remove as well. Pathetic FPL pick

      3. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        He will get something v Leeds, but not over confident

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

      Podence haul today

      1. Plant Based Footballer
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I'll take 3 points.

    14. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Last night I was going to bring in KDB and Chilwell, now I can't afford them.

      1. Plant Based Footballer
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        The price change schedule is cruel indeed. Even the stock market closes, but not FPL.

    15. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Arsenal right there playing with a no 10 who is not Ozil.

    16. The Red Devil
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Son + ziyech
      To
      Kdb + jota (-4)?

    17. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Reece James has gone from the biggest liability on my GW3 wildcard to one of my team's best assets. Cheaper than Chilwell and delivering just as consistently.

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Chilwell + James double up woking fine for me as well.

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

        Might need to just burn a transfer to get him in and be done with it. No Chelsea defence is frequently hurting.

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

        I moved him out after GW 3 wc and regretting

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

          thats whats great about owning James, many ditched him and alot wont go back, or didnt go back. I dont think you can call him a differential, but he is kinda is in comparison to Chilwell.
          Also many went Zouma, and lets face it, Zouma is only going to score when he is in the box off a set piece. James is marauding forward every game

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

        I got him in my GW3 WC too. Him playing sporadically worried me a bit. But the patience paying off now!

    18. Rolls-Royce
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Have exact funds for Son+ Martial-> Salah+ Bamford -4. So tempting...

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

        Easy move!

      Only dropped 10k with a minus 8 and 4 to play, I’ll take that. Team all set up for next week from the hits?

      Martinez

    21. HippY
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Thoughts on Kilman coming off the bench? I'm hoping not!

    22. Will J 256

      Thoughts on this -4
      Mitchell and Ziyech to Dias and Jota?

      Selling Kane for a hit not looking quite as stupid as I had worried

      1. DGW Sane TC Fail....
        • 10 Years

        Benched Mendy feels like it might bite me.

          • 10 Years

      Yet again after a promising start, the gameweek turns into averageness with nothing but blanks from the Sunday games.

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

      Silly selling Ziyech before that Chelsea run?

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

        Not sure about the run but before the Leeds game yes

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

          Leeds and a leaky Everton with Pickford in goal are the next two!

    27. KUN+10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Rival:
      Justin, Targett, Watkins, Vardy (c)

      Me:
      Grealish, Cresswell, Martinez, Vardy (c)

      24 points difference...think I can catch him tomorrow?

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

        No. But what’s the rush?

        1. KUN+10
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          I like to be on top, always
          on too

    28. Flair

      Holding James proved very unexpectedly beneficial. Not having the transfers to remove him has turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

      Ziyech sells ahead ov leeds and Everton

      Best mid price attacket?

      1) Wilson
      2) Watkins
      3) Antonio
      4) any other
