Iheanacho and Tierney benched as Son and Kane start for Conte in 3-4-3 formation

There are three Premier League matches kicking off at 14:00 BST today – Arsenal v Watford, Everton v Tottenham Hotspur and Leeds United v Leicester City.

Mikel Arteta makes one change from Gameweek 10, as Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£5.3m) comes in for Thomas Partey (£5.0m), who is out with a tight groin.

That means Nuno Taveres (£4.3m) keep his place at left-back, with Kieran Tierney (£4.8m) on the bench, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.1m) leads the line alongside Alexandre Lacazette (£8.3m), having scored six goals in five Premier League appearances against Watford.

Claudio Ranieri makes five changes, with Kiko Femenia (£4.4m), Danny Rose (£4.2m), Nicolas Nkoulou (£4.5m), Ozan Tufan (£5.0m) and Emmanuel Dennis (£5.2m) all amongst the starting XI.

At Goodison Park, Antonio Conte takes charge of his first Premier League game as Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach, and sticks with the same XI that beat Vitesse on Thursday.

Rafael Benitez, meanwhile, makes three changes from Gameweek 10, with Lucas Digne (£5.2m), Fabian Delph (£4.4m) and Anthony Gordon (£4.5m) replacing Mason Holgate (£4.2m), Jean-Philippe Gbamin (£4.5m) and Alex Iwobi (£5.8m).

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£8.0m) and midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.4m) remain on the sidelines. 

Elsewhere, Leeds United make just one change, with Adam Forshaw (£4.5m) coming in for Jamie Shackleton (£4.5m), while Brendan Rodgers has benched Kelechi Iheanacho (£7.0m) and James Maddison (£6.7m), with Ademola Lookman (£6.0m) and Harvey Barnes (£6.5m) flanking Jamie Vardy (£10.8m) up front.

    Offside

  2. _Ninja_
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    No goal offside.

    Saka VS Smith Rowe debate will go on forever.

    1. Echoes
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Both will probably have similar G+A this season. ESR definitely better value for being almost 1m cheaper as of now.

    2. DARE TO BISCAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Will if you keep mentioning it 🙂

  4. My heart goes Salalalalah
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Saka no goal

  5. Ze_Austin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Saka's unlucky there. The kind of offside that's definitely not your fault

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Awful Auba touch.

    2. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      He still should be aware enough to leave it for Auba for an actual chance of a goal

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Fair point

        Rush of blood, I guess

  6. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
    • 9 Years

    Offside, good stuff.

  7. PLerix
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Auba should have controlled it and scored. Would not be offside. Donkey (c)

  8. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Son down

  9. My heart goes Salalalalah
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Son down

  10. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Bit early, its only 10 past 2.

    1. Echoes
      • 1 Year

      Not if you live in Fairbanks, Alaska during this time of the year.

  11. DavidBadWillie

    Auba captainer. Need a haul badly

  12. Ze_Austin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Landing studs to Son's ribs. Accidental. He's back up

      Qué?

  14. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode

    Son back up ok

  15. lordkippe
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Should not have captained Auba. Disaster....

  16. TyroneGAA
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    I didn’t even know that was part of the offside rule .. terrible

    1. AIRMILES
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Yeah, they should change it so it's just one outfield player, rather than the current rule of two players. Defending teams just get let off the hook.

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Two players.

      Just normally one is the keeper.

    3. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      It's been there for a *long* time, and players are aware of it

  17. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Saka owners have been so unlucky over the last few games

    1. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      yep, heads up next one won't be offside

  18. Differentiator
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Godfrey stamps on Son. VAR doesn't check

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      It looked purely accidental, to be fair

      Had nowhere else to put his foot that quickly when falling

      1. Differentiator
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        He didn't fall at all

        1. BDA Shadow
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          There was nothing in that calm down.

  19. Ze_Austin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Reguilón watch: yellow card

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Reguilón cross, Emerson header over the bar

      Nice stuff to see from wing backs

  20. diesel001
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Not that surprising to see Dean Smith leave Aston Villa. A lot of it is not his fault as he lost Grealish.

    Grealish was a big source of PL goals and assists. Replacing PL goals and assists is difficult. See Everton trying to replace Lukaku or Spurs trying to replace Bale, for example. You can't just buy three players, like Villa did in Buendia, Ings and Bailey, and think they will replace the goals and assists of a superstar.

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Is Grealish really a superstar?

      I know he thinks he is and with the price tag, that leaves Villa with £100m so it should be good business for the club.

      1. diesel001
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        The rate he got goals and assists in the PL for Villa would suggest he is.

      2. Pep bites Kun
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Debateable. The point being that he added more to Villa (talisman) than he currently does to City.

      3. Forza Papac
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        He's an elite-level chance creator. Was routinely in the top 3 for chance creating metrics in Europes top 5 leagues

        1. mynameisq
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          This, city just don't have the striker that makes his particular talents all that useful

  21. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Schmeichel 3 saves. Leeds dominating?

    1. panda07
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      End to end, should be a great match if it continues like this

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

                Wow, channel 71. Never knew it existed. Just caught Raph's goal.
                and another goal!

    Schmeichel 3 saves

  23. BDA Shadow
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Iheanacho has been a massive fail, can't for the life of me figure our why Rodgers hates him so much. 3 starts he had a goal and assist and then he gets hooked at half time and now dropped.

    1. diesel001
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      The Vardy factor. What is good for Vardy is what goes. Iheanacho is not good for Vardy (in terms of goals).

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Maybe, but when Vardy was struggling last season Iheanacho picked up all the slack and then some. He's got to find a way to rely on Vardy less, he hasn't got long left.

        1. diesel001
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Leicester City = Jamie Vardy.

          See what happened to Claudio Ranieri and Craig Shakespeare.

        2. DARE TO BISCAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Brendan eyeing Olé's job. Just needs a tune out of Leicester this season.

          1. BDA Shadow
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            That's true. Still think they're better with Nacho.

            1. DARE TO BISCAN
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 16 days ago

              Possibly. But, a happy Vardy is a happy Leicester.

    2. splitzz
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      nacho was the only shiny light for leicester in that first half against ars. i guess he will realise he needs nacho as their woes continue

    3. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Agree. Wasted!
