Dugout Discussion – Bournemouth vs Spurs

After Arsenal returned to winning ways against Watford at the Emirates, Sunday’s action concludes as Bournemouth and Tottenham Hotspur go head-to head at the Vitality Stadium.

In light of a rare failure for Mohamed Salah at Old Trafford yesterday, all eyes turn to Harry Kane, the number one captain for Gameweek 30 in Fantasy Premier League.

Handed the armband by 27.3% of managers and captained by 62 of the top 100, he’s scored more goals (13) away from home than any player in the top-flight this term.

Furthermore, Kane hit a hat-trick in his only away encounter against the Cherries, back in 2015/16.

Elsewhere for the visitors, interest in Son Heung-min was on the rise after a 16-point haul against Huddersfield last week. Second only to Leroy Sane for transfers in (169,000+) for Gameweek 30, the South Korean starts again and will attempt to improve a run of just one away goal this season.

In defence, though, there’s bad news for Ben Davies’ 24% FPL owners – the Welshman is omitted from today’s squad due to “general fatigue”, ending a run of nine straight league starts. Over 663,000 acquired the left-back over the last four Gameweeks.

For Bournemouth, Josh King starts on the bench after missing most of training this week due to a neck problem.

With a home clash against West Brom as one of only four fixtures in Gameweek 31, interest in the Cherries is bound to escalate if they can deliver today.

      Think bringing in coleman for a hit would be worth the risk of a '-2' ?

        If Stoke score 2, it's -3

          It's not a risk of a -2 for a defender. A couple of goals conceded and it's a -3 or more.

          Got to weigh up chances of attacking returns. Everton defending not great.

            I did this week to spread hit over 2. Sold Mawson who got 5 so I'm 3 points down but Coleman should get at least 2 so it's a 1 point gamble on attacking returns or CS.

                            That Chelsea spurs game.in gw 32 is a pain. want to load up on players from both these teams for my wc team but then surely my score for that gw won't be great. Any thoughts ? Thanks 🙂

                                    Ramsey rested again. Swapped out Walcott to Ramsey last week....at least I was half right with Walcott blanking both games....

                                            Probably dropping this week as I only have 5 starters at the moment and think Ramsey will be rested frequently while Arsenal survive EL

                                            no WC or FH either, been a terrible year..

                                        Are the FH transfers counted at all? I have the feeling they are not, from the looks of what is being traded at fpl statistics

                                                              He'd scored 5 in past 3 games. Never likely to be benched unless injured.
