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.

      Making some transfers.

      1) Which two out of Grealish, Mahrez, Jota and De Bruyne?
      2) Wilson or Vardy?

      I am thinking De Bruyne, Grealish, Wilson

        Covid situation at Newcastle doesn't bother you?

          I'll wait for the presser this week. Already took drops on my players.

        Licking lips at the sellers.

        I am however in a fortunate position alrwsdy having KDB, Fernandes & Jota. No Salah, but may do a hokey-cokey in GW12.

      Defence was Chilwell Cancelo Kilman (Shaw Ferguson)

      Was worried about rotation so I did Shaw -> Cresswell (-4) and benched Kilman

      Hit taken and still only 2 defenders... woo

      1. Lindelol

        3 months, 7 days ago

        that was the only reason I went for Dias

          Hopefully Dias is not rested for FUL

      Glad I correctly predicted 0-0 in this game so far so good on this weeks moves as I went Son/Foden/Jimmy to Kdb(c)/Jota/Bamford
      Hoping to not make any moves this week to help fund Salah in gw12
