Another league start for Bale as Everton make do without injured Rodriguez again

Double Gameweek 26 edges towards its conclusion, with two early-evening kick-offs at Craven Cottage and the Hawthorns preceding the clash between Liverpool and Chelsea.

Fulham v Tottenham Hotspur and West Bromwich Albion v Everton both get underway at 18:00 GMT.

There is plenty of interest in both of these fixtures from a Fantasy perspective, with three of the most-captained assets of Double Gameweek 26 in action.

The three players in question, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.8m), Son Heung-min (£9.5m) and Harry Kane (£11.1m), are also among the top four candidates for the Triple Captain chip, with the latter backed by a Gameweek-high 239,588 managers.

That trio starts this evening, as does Gareth Bale (£9.3m), who is already the highest-scoring player of the Gameweek.

The Welshman plundered 19 points in the thrashing of Burnley and has seen his FPL ownership treble since.

Jose Mourinho has made three changes to his side, handing Dele Alli (£7.4m) his first Premier League start since the opening day of 2020/21 at the expense of Lucas Moura (£6.6m).

It’s all change at full-back, too, as Matt Doherty (£5.6m) and Ben Davies (£4.6m) come in for Serge Aurier (£5.2m) and Sergio Reguilon (£5.5m).

Scott Parker has also made three alterations to his starting XI, with Antonee Robinson (£4.4m), Mario Lemina (£4.5m) and Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.3m) replacing Kenny Tete (£4.3m), Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m) and Bobby Decordova-Reid (£5.3m).

In the other match, Carlo Ancelotti has made two changes to the team that begun Monday’s victory against Southampton.

Alex Iwobi (£5.9m) and Bernard (£5.7m) start with Allan (£5.2m) and Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.8m) dropping to the bench.

James Rodriguez (£7.7m), Seamus Coleman (£4.8m) and Tom Davies (£5.2m) are again missing through injury.

The fit-again Robert Snodgrass (£5.6m) is back among the substitutes for the hosts, with Sam Allardyce unsurprisingly naming an unchanged XI from the side that saw off Brighton on Saturday.


Fulham XI: Areola, Aina, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Robinson, Reed, Lemina, Cavaleiro, Loftus-Cheek, Lookman, Maja

Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Doherty, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Davies, Ndombele, Hojbjerg, Bale, Alli, Son, Kane.

West Bromwich Albion XI: Johnstone, Furlong, O’Shea, Bartley, Townsend, Yokuslu, Maitland-Niles, Pereira, Gallagher, Phillips, Diagne.

Everton: Pickford, Digne, Holgate, Keane, Godfrey, Doucoure, Gomes, Bernard, Iwobi, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.

    Kane TCers. I'm sorry for you, but that's what you got when you copy team and ideas from twitter. Play your own game.

    Everton CS busted or will VAR save them?

  6. Bounce

    So the Kane TC only got an extra 5 points more than Bruno lol.

    Bruno TC = +3
    Kane TC = +8

    5 point difference assuming you would have regular captained them anyway...

  7. Bobby Digital

    So Parker is the best new-school coach? Or is it Arteta?

    1. COUFAL SO GOOD
      • 4 Years

      Parker

      Poor but not the best game for him, small pitch, little space and Fulham are well organised

      Fair play on the Digne cap.

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Did you watch the Southampton game? Incredibly lucky to keep a clean sheet

    The real TC winners this week are those who didn’t activate it.

    From the popular picks...

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      The real winners are the ones who played it on Grealish against Liverpool

  14. Z

  16. lewis1290
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 27 days ago

    is it offside?

  17. BobB
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 27 days ago

    The drop in goals suggest someone like Diaz or Digne best bet as TC going forward

  18. Leaf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 27 days ago

    All the TC choices Kane fail Bruno fail Dcl fail

    Salah partial fail ...can he step up

    1. Messiah Hazard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      Kane at least has a goal and Salah still to play... Not sure if anyone on here TC’ed him

    Diagne was born offside

  20. diesel001
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 27 days ago

    Unlucky for WBA. But one thing about VAR is it has added consistency to offside calls. You draw the lines and you see. Much better than what was going on 10 years ago. Some of the goals they allowed were a joke.

    1. Homer21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      True

  21. Super Saints

    Kane dive to end game sums up the DGW.

    I never have jackbot week, lol.

    Again I transfered Dier in (-4pts) and Spurs have 2 double CS-s. But Without him!

    At the same time captained Rich, and ignored Kane and DCL.

    Bittersweet.
