After ending Chelsea’s winning run by netting both Spurs’ goals in a 2-0 victory at the Lane, Dele Alli is the hottest property around in Fantasy Premier League right now.
Subject to a massive 303,000+ acquisitions since the previous deadline passed, the midfield starlet has netted twice in each of his last three appearances, as Mauricio Pochettino’s men prepare for a kind run of fixtures.
Spurs face West Brom, Sunderland, Middlesbrough and Stoke City in their next six Gameweeks.
Alli’s headline-hogging surge to third in the FPL midfield standings has somewhat overshadowed the form of team-mate Christian Eriksen, who has been acquired by 57,000+ managers ahead of Saturday’s home clash with the Baggies.
Priced at 8.5 and 8.6 respectively, this latest article for members will assess the midfield duo’s recent displays since striker Harry Kane’s return to action from an ankle problem.
Factoring in injuries to both Kane and Alli, we will focus our attentions from Gameweek 13 onwards – essentially, the first time that the pair, along with Eriksen, had appeared in Pochettino’s starting line-up since a 4-0 win at Stoke City back in Gameweek 4.
In terms of FPL output during that spell, the two midfield options have been remarkably similar, with Eriksen just edging it by 74 points to 72.
Alli has been slightly more consistent, delivering a goal on six of those eight occasions to Eriksen’s five, though the Dane has proven the more explosive.
Whereas Alli has managed 10+ points on three occasions, Eriksen has achieved this five times – essentially, every time he’s produced attacking returns in this window.
