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.

    Does FPL provide a breakdown of the BPS? Or its there any other site which has that feature?

    1. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      The help/scoring section explains what is required to earn them

      1. WE GO FOR IT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah, I know about that. But no place where the stats are all together right? I would need to find stats and calculate manually for everyone like that.

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      They give them to the same players every week even if they do nothing

      1. WE GO FOR IT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Ha-ha! A little bit more clarity would be nice. Also, would give us more stats to analyze the players and their performances. Instead of seeing who gets BAPs, we could see who scores well according to them and is likely to get BAPs if they score/assist/keep CS.

    J. Rod & Kane --> KDB & Wilson makes sense even for (-4), right?

  3. ElChapo
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    survived selling kane and son, just need to survive Vardy tomorrow for a proper decent week...

    1. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Too many bullets to dodge though....

      1. ElChapo
        • 2 Years

        dodged all of them so far!

    -12 tempts

    Martinez
    James - Chilwell - Dallas (Lamptey, Dunne)
    Salah - KDB - Fernandes - Jota (Bissouma)
    Vardy - Watkins - Bamford

    Surely it's too insane.. or is it?

    1. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 1 day ago

      It is. Breathe

    2. Daniel - WC Active
      • 11 Years

      Do it

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Why?

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Looks supreme for today but warning that in a couple of weeks you might want to take another -12

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Very true. I think I'll just stay patient on this one.

  5. Weeb Kakashi

    Jimemez 9 pointer hopefully.

  6. Rupert The Horse

    52 with Vardy (c) Watkins and Gabriel to go. Is that good this week?

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Insane

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

        Really? Team is pretty normal.

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          What is it

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

            Pickford, gotta get rid
            Chilwell Gabriel James
            Bruno Jota KDB Son
            DCL Vardy Watkins.
            Pretty template.

        2. Joey Tribbiani
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Insane.

      2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Really good. I am at 34 with Vardy (C), Podence, Martinez and Coufal to go.

      3. Would Ed Woodward
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        I doubt you'd have asked if you didn't think it was.

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

          I ask every week.

      4. Black Knights
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah excellent. I’m just about sneaking a green at 40k with 4 left but no captain and no Leicester so 52 is superb.

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

          So what has happened to make 52 such a good score. I feel like a lot of high owned players did well.

      5. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        That’s incredible!

        I’m on 36 (-4) with 5 incl Vardy (c) to go

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

          Ah so maybe it’s because I’ve had most of my players play.

          1. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Reckon it’ll still be a v good score by end of tomorrow

      6. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Well that's great score ... 34 here with Vardy (C) and another 3 lads. Loosing 6 pts guarantee from Cancelo no show Taylor 1st bench. Will be happy to avoid a red arrow.

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

          Yeah Cancelo must have been really frustrating.

    2. Andre W
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Yikes. No Cancelo, Lamptey or Kilman for me this week

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Join the club mate. If the Cancelo miss was a possibility, this Kilman one....

    3. wulfranian
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Every time i have many players from one game it ends 0-0.With two yellow cards.

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        If all of them are defenders....

    4. SHOWSTOPPERRR
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Guys 37 with vardy(c) ,grealish, Martinez to go..bad or average? How others doing?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        That’s pretty good I think

      2. Keeptrying
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        You are in a good position. That's an average score so far, but if Vardy goes off, you will be laughing!

      3. Huddersfield
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        i'll say above average, i have 16 points more.
        hope to get my best gw this season

    5. TimoTime
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Vardy captainers still feeling confident?

      1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah

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

        Yeah of course. Why? Anything changed?

        1. TimoTime
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Nope, just wondering, I also have him captained

      3. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Very.

      4. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Early penalty goal tomorrow and yes I will be

    6. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Hmm...realistically to get Salah back for GW12 (Fulham) I’ll need to sell Kane. Not sure how I feel about that.

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

        You’ll know sooner to the time.

        1. HollywoodXI
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          That’s what I’m hoping. I can do Grealish and Kane to Salah and Bamford/Antonio for free. But I jumped on both Kane and Grealish early and they’ve been great for me so it feels wrong. I have Jota but you just know Mo will haul against Fulham

          1. waltzingmatildas
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Exactly the same position. Reluctant but may be the only way

    7. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Gtg for next week providing midweek goes well???

      Martinez
      Chilwell Cresswell Robbo
      Son Salah Mahrez Torres Grealish
      Kane(c) DCL

      Martin Kilman Brewster Mitchell

    8. Jimjam
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Martinez (Steer)
      Robertson, Chilwell, Coufal (KWP, Mitchell)
      Salah, Son, Ziyech, Grealish (Stephens)
      Kane, DCL, Bamford

      Have exact funds to do the following for a -8:
      Son -> KDB
      Ziyech -> Bruno
      DCL -> Wilson
      Robertson -> Taylor

      Worth it?

    9. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Both teams gone 4-2-3-1 tonight?

    10. slove
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Worth bringing in Stones after Guardiola's recent comments?

      1. HuttonDressedasLahm
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Serious question?

        1. slove
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          He explicitly said that the players who play well are going to play until they lose their spot based on performances , I know Guardiola is a fraud but a 4.8 route into that city back line with their fixture run could pay off greatly

          1. HuttonDressedasLahm
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            But maybe Pep didn’t like his performance? 🙂

            1. slove
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              He said in the same interview that he believes Stones is settled and based off his performance he's going to have the chance to show his quality

      2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Knowing Pep, his comments mean Garcia starts next game

      3. ZeBestee
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        No. He is a transfer out waiting.

      4. HuttonDressedasLahm
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Laporte
        Dias
        Stones
        Ake
        Fernandinho
        Garcia

        Too many options

    11. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Seems whether my players do nothing or something, my rank barely moves. Probably quite a template team, but hoping Vardy(c) will change things.

      1. HuttonDressedasLahm
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Template teams always end up like that

    12. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Bottomed.

      Best mid price forward?

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

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        If antonio is fit, I'm very tempted.
        A looking decent too. Think they will all do well to be honest

        Yes imo and have to find a way to get Salah for 12 as well

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Hmm you are right.
          Kane might need to fund it but reluctant to lose him

          Have you thought about a triple up on Mane, Salah and Jota for gamweek 12?

    14. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      How hopeless is my h2h? Is it lost?

      Him: 47 + Konsa
      Me: 28 + Vardy (c) + Grealish

      It feels doable!

      1. Daniel - WC Active
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Grealish is very important

      2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Far from lost, as long as the party doesn't get cancelled...

      3. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Vardy brace and you've comfortably beat him. Very far from lost. Even 1 goal from him can be compensated through Grealish.

      4. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah

      What are your plans about DCL and Robbo (if you own him)
      It also seems that it's time for a 3-5-2 if you decide to drop DCL

        Both of them are potential outs for me, first time I need cash

      2. Eh, just one more thing ...

        Looking to shift JROD and very likely DCL the following week, I might ditch him for Wilson for next weekend.

        You will be missing Chelsea attackers when goals start flowing

        Had chilwell mendy James triple for last two weeks and that’s two clean sheets on the bounce ... fingers crossed that holds.

      Thoughts on Son to KDB now after tonights game? Looks like mou going back to defensive style for the bigger/tighter games. Lots of them coming up for spurs
