Line-ups – Leicester
Foxes striker Jamie Vardy (£9.1m) starts the match. His 2% of the games base managers will be hoping for a repeat of his previous match. He picked up 10 points for his goal, assist and two bonus. Defender Timothy Castagne (£4.6m) starts. The Belgian has banked five returns on the bounce, but will his owners be starting him today?
The highest owned and scoring FPL player Erling Haaland (£12 .2m) fails to make the squad. Midfielder Phil Foden (£8.5m) also fails to start for the second Premier League match in a row. His 28.4% of the game base owners could be getting cold feet in terms of keeping him.

He hit the frame of the goal but zipped over the line. A fantastic strike from De Bruyne to make it 1-0.
- The game ended 1-0 to Man City.
