Community XI: Leicester


The Fantasy Football Community are giving Leicester assets plenty of attention this pre-season.

The form team from the end of last season, coupled with some exciting new signings has provided a lot of interest.

FPL Prize League

We have 11 retro shirts to giveaway over the course of the season, courtesy of  Score Draw Retro. There’s 10 Manager of the Month prizes, plus a prize for the overall winner.

1. Neil

Neil Murray posted another big Twitter thread looking at the Leicester of last season, plus plenty of statistics. All of that statistical analysis has led Neil to produce his top five Leicester assets, and there’s some defenders in there too!

2. Cheaters

Within a series of podcasts, the team from Always Cheating previewed the Leicester side within their second team preview podcast. There was yet more analysis of the new signings, as well as assets from across the pitch.

3. Pundits

Fantasy Football Pundits are backing Jamie Vardy to start the season strongly. He has the form from last season and Leicetser’s new acquisitions should help to support an even more exciting attack.

4. Joe

OptaJoe sets out an intriguing statistic for those managers considering Youri Tielemans. He’s now made his loan deal permanent with The Foxes and he’s got a wealth of contributions to their goals.

5. Munday

The signing of Tielemans has increased the attractiveness of Jamie Vardy as a fantasy asset. The pace and creativity that he can provide in midfield, will help support Jamie Vardy as the spearhead of Leicester’s attack.

6. General

The FPL General added Tielemans straight to the watchlist when he was released to the Fantasy Premier League game at a friendly price of 6.5 million. He seems to be a great way of covering that Leicester attack.

7. Andy

Let’s Talk FPL’s Andy has an interest in Tielemans, but is also considering James Maddison. The fact that the latter is on set pieces has to be under consideration, he also has the edge in the following statistics.

8. Rebant

Rebant has also focused on comparing Tielemans and Maddison in his thread on Twitter. The comparison has certainly got the community talking and it could be a close call between this pair.

9. Prince

The FPL Prince has also brought Perez into the mix, who could be an interesting out of position prospect, since he’s been reclassified as a midfielder. Is Maddison really worth the extra 0.5 million?

10. Hopcroft

It’s important to consider the form that these players finished the season with. Vardy was by far the most potent player at the close of the last campaign, and new acquisition Ayoze Perez wasn’t far behind!

11. Hub

To conclude proceedings, the Fantasy Football Hub team put the Leicester dilemma to a Twitter poll. There was some division between the midfielders, with Tielemans leading the popularity, but it was Jamie Vardy who eclipsed them all!
