A look at the latest rumours and bits of gossip that the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) community is talking about.
Leeds appoint Jesse Marsch as head coach, pending international clearance
Following Sunday’s sad news that Leeds had parted ways with Marcelo Bielsa, they have quickly decided on a replacement with former Red Bull Salzburg and RB Leipzig boss Jesse Marsch. He has signed a three-year deal, assuming international clearance is granted.
The American had already been linked with them in case Bielsa decided not to extend his contract this summer. Of course, these are tough shoes to fill and it will take time to assess whether their non-Raphinha assets are worth FPL investment. Leeds are about to enter a Double Gameweek versus Leicester (a) and Aston Villa (H).
Jamie Vardy set to return from injury tonight against Burnley
Absent since late December with a hamstring injury, Leicester’s Jamie Vardy is ready to make an appearance at Burnley tonight. The 35-year-old’s two-month absence has only robbed him of five league matches but the Foxes haven’t won any of them.
“Yes, he’ll be available for the squad. Jamie Vardy will be back in the squad, which is great news for us. He’s looked sharp in the few days’ training he’s had so he’ll come in and play a part.
To have that level of mentality as well as the ability is very important for any squad. (Vardy is) a proven player at the level. He’s a top player at the level. To have him back, to be able to travel and feature, is great. That’s a huge boost for us.”Brendan Rodgers
