Dugout Discussion

The Dugout Discussion – Tottenham Hotspur vs Southampton

After United saw off Middlesbrough at the Riverside, we now make our way to White Hart Lane as Tottenham Hotspur entertain Southampton in the 2.15pm kick-off.

Devoid of the injured Harry Kane, Mauricio Pochettino has turned to Son Heung-Min to lead the line after the South Korean racked up three goals and an assist in last Sunday’s 6-0 FA Cup thrashing of Millwall.

Snapped up by over 132,000 Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of yesterday’s deadline, Dele Alli is the most captained player from this one – 1.5% have handed him the armband on the back of ten goals in the last 11 Gameweeks.

With five double-figure hauls in his last eight home outings, though, Christian Eriksen looks just as vital if the home side are to prevail without their star striker.

With the Saints set to play 11 times in the remaining nine Gameweeks, today’s match gives us an early scouting opportunity.

Up top, Manolo Gabbiadini is a man in demand after firing six goals in four appearances across all competitions since arriving in the winter transfer window.

Despite facing two blanks in the last three Gameweeks, the Italian has still risen 0.4 in price ahead of back-to-back home clashes with Bournemouth and Crystal Palace.

The new striker’s arrival has allowed Dusan Tadic and Nathan Redmond to flourish since Claude Puel switched to a 4-2-3-1 formation, with the pair providing 22 and 17 points respectively over their last two league appearances.

                  Son (C) worked out amazing.

                  Back to basement dwelling with me, it's time to recuperate, rethink and consolidate.

                                That will be the wrong choice by end of season mate I think

                                If Walker wasn't a doubt I probably would have got him instead of Valencia, about time some luck went my way

                                  Anyone stuck for transfer moves as the players they wanted to bring in are picking up injuries left and right?

                                    Thank goodness for captaining Lukaku - recently in decent gameweek score after yesterday.

                                    But #FPL fail. Took 12 point hit. Got in Kolorov (no start) - wanted City coverage since I knew I'd be watching match. Otherwise, would have got Valencia - who of course scored.

                                    Also transferred in Rashford - although he was for Llorente so not too bad. Got in Son who I think has blanked - made worse as in for Eriksen! Other transfer was Sanchez who thankfully scored - although maybe injured.

                                    Sanchez came in for Mane so bet he scores a hat trick now!
