Son leaves it late as Spurs flatter to deceive against spirited Leicester

Another Gameweek, another laboured victory for Spurs, whose win over Leicester was much more than a 3-1 scoreline suggests.

The home side were certainly clinical at Wembley Stadium but had to dig deep to hold off a Foxes onslaught, especially in the second half.

The game that featured Gameweek 26’s most popular player in the transfer market is the focus of this latest Scout Notes article.

Spurs 3-1 Leicester

Goals: Davison Sánchez (£5.8m), Christian Eriksen (£9.3m), Son Heung-min (£8.8m) | Jamie Vardy (£8.8m)

Assists: Eriksen, Fernando Llorente (£5.7m), Moussa Sissoko (£4.9m)

Son Heung-min (£8.8m) left it late but still managed to reward his large number of new owners with a goal against Leicester on Sunday afternoon. The South Korean was the most transferred-in player ahead of Gameweek 26 with over 550,000 managers signing him up. The game itself was frustrating viewing for his 21% ownership as he was unable to have as much impact on proceedings as he would have liked.

Son was top of the charts for goal attempts in the game, but only one of them was in the box and just one was on target. That was his stoppage-time goal which would have been perhaps harder to miss than to score as he had the freedom of the Wembley pitch to bear down on goal and slot past Kasper Schmeichel (£5.0m). Outside of that, the FPL midfielder had few clear cut chances, and it would be easy to argue that he was fortunate to score yet again. However, the player himself would tell you his late goal was just desserts after he was brought down in the box by Harry Maguire (£5.4m) in the first half but was booked for diving instead.

“It was a clear penalty. It was the same referee but now I don’t know how he has measured the situation. It is so difficult. I am a person that always accepts the mistake but I think it was so strange the situation today. It was so clear the position today with Sonny, the action, but it wasn’t clear the position of Maddison when he was on the floor. I think it is unbelievable.” – Mauricio Pochettino

The star performer from a Fantasy perspective was Christian Eriksen (£9.3m) who got himself a goal and an assist against Leicester. He made up for a particularly poor performance against Newcastle, in which he did not create a single chance, by offering a spread of Fantasy potential this time around. He played two key passes and had two efforts on goal, combining for his first double-figure haul since Gameweek 19. With ongoing talks about his future at the club, it was a timely display from Eriksen.

“We’ve spoken a lot about that, now we need to keep going, for him to continue performing in his best and of course I told you before he’s such an important player for us. We’ll see what happens. I think I’ve used a few metaphors in the past about Christian, remember related with my family and my dog. He needs to feel the freedom to take his decisions. I think keeping going, so happy with him and we’ll see what happens in the end.” – Mauricio Pochettino

However, as already mentioned, it was a game that was not fully reflected in the scoreline. Spurs did not warrant a 3-1 victory while Leicester really should have scored more than they did. The visitors finished the match with an expected goals (xG) score of 3.12 to their hosts’ 1.08. Spurs had more of the possession (53% to 47%), but the Foxes were considerably more purposeful with the ball. They had more than triple the shots in the box and twice as many big chances as Spurs.

Harvey Barnes (£5.5m) has excited since coming back to Leicester following a loan spell at West Bromwich Albion but he was missing the clinical edge at Wembley. No player who started the match had more efforts in the box than him, but only one of his three shots there was on target. At the opposite end of the experience-scale was Jamie Vardy (£8.8m) who was surprisingly benched for the encounter but was introduced in the 59th minute. He was being lined up to come on before James Maddison (£6.6m) won a penalty, but was rushed on once it was there to be taken. With his first touch of the match, the 32-year-old had his effort saved by Hugo Lloris (£5.4m), who proved one of the key performers for Spurs given Leicester’s spirited display. To Vardy’s credit, he managed to finish the match joint-top with Barnes for shots in the box, despite playing just 31 minutes.

“I think we are talking about one of the best keepers in the world, with a lot of experience and having played a lot of games here at Tottenham. I think he’s showing his value and of course, in the decisive moments like today, I think it was so important to help the team achieve the three points. Of course, his quality is there and we cannot doubt that.” – Mauricio Pochettino

“I could have waited (to make the change). He was ready to come on and I gave him the opportunity to shoot the penalty. I said to him if he felt up to it he can take it, but it is not just the penalty, the whole game we have had all the possibilities to lead this game or get back into the game. We don’t know. Perhaps it was not a good thing or a good thing, we don’t know. Yes, normally Jamie is the penalty taker. I gave him the opportunity to take this penalty.” – Claude Puel

Aside from the penalty, Maddison was at the heart of much of Leicester’s play. He created more chances than any other player on the Wembley pitch, and was, in fact, the top creator for the whole of Gameweek 26, no other player beating his total of seven key passes.

Ricardo Pereira (£5.3m) was also useful as he pushed on from his right-back position. Maddison was the only one to manage more created chances than the Portuguese in Sunday’s lunch-time kick-off.

There certainly seems to be enough potential shown by Leicester in recent performances to suggest that once the fixtures ease up they could be the source of some shrewd investments. Pereira especially has been targetted by many as someone to purchase from Gameweek 27 onwards as it’s Crystal Palace (home), Brighton (home), Watford (away), Fulham (home), Burnley (away) and Bournemouth (home) up next for the Foxes.

“It’s the same feeling after our game against United. Another time today, we made good collective performance, with good quality and good moves. We hurt them, without finding efficiency. It’s a big shame. It was not a fair result, but it’s our fault because we have had a lot of chances since the kick-off. It’s a mixed feeling with the thought that we showed a lot of quality. It’s encouraging. We should have led this game, we should have got back in this game. “We need results to give us good balance.” – Claude Puel

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-3-1-2): Lloris; Rose (Walker-Peters 88′), Vertonghen, Sánchez, Trippier; Skipp (Alderweireld 71′), Winks, Sissoko; Eriksen; Llorente (Wanyama 80′), Son.

Chelsea XI (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Chilwell, Maguire, Evans, R Pereira; Ndidi; Barnes (Okazaki 88′), Maddison, Tieleman, Ghezzal (Iheanacho 72′); D Gray (Vardy 59′).

    GW27: Hazard + Ings ➡ Jota + Lacazette (-4)
    GW28: Firmino ➡ Aguero

      Any other way to get Aguero. ? getting rid of firmino before those juicy liverpool fixtures could come back to bite you

      How about Hazard Ings --> ____, Aguero ?

    Don't know about ye but iv an awful hangover. The last two wks have been a disaster so far and it's hard to take.
    My OR has dropped for 808 to 5344 and MLs rivals have closed my 150 lead to 80 odd.
    Damn you Man City.

    1. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      Humble brag about your rank?. 5k at this stage still a fine rank.

      Saying that my ml rival has closed the gap by big margin as well as he owned likes of sterling kun last couple of gws while i was annoyingly stuck with Sane

    2. tafrère
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Still an amazing rank, cheer up little soldier!

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      6 months, 10 days ago

      Why would you complain about a 5K rank?

      I’ve dropped from 50K to 220K in just under 2 weeks, others similar to me. That’s a disaster.

      1. Dokdok666
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 10 days ago

        No matter the rank, dropping 70 points in 2 GW's is a disaster

        1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 10 days ago

          Disagree. If you can afford to drop 70 points and still be in the top 10K then it’s not a disaster IMO, I’d be chuffed!

          1. Santa Cruz Control
            • 10 Years
            6 months, 10 days ago

            Absolutely stupid thing to say. How can 50k to 220k be a disaster? That's amazing, I'd be so chuffed with that. I've dropped from 200k to 900k in 2 weeks. Now that's a disaster!

            I didn't really but you get the idea. You're complaining about your disaster. Just because you're doing worse than the guy above doesn't mean his isn't a disaster too.

            1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years

              But he is 5K......

              Look at the numbers you are comparing on. 5K is a great rank.

              I do get your point of view to a certain extent though, I’m probably just grouchy and salty about my own circumstances so struggle seeing people complaining about a 5K rank.

              1. Santa Cruz Control
                • 10 Years
                6 months, 10 days ago

                5k is a great rank, but 808 is even better. It's just about context.

                It's if Man City were to slip up on the last day and lose the title to Liverpool, and then Macclesfield fans saying to them "don't know what you're so unhappy about. you came 2nd in the Premier League. We got relegated from League Two".

                Yeah, of course you're doing worse as a Macclesfield fan, but it still hurts just as much to those Man City fans.

                1. Duka
                  • 2 Years
                  6 months, 10 days ago

                  This is so true. Arguably it even hurts more closer to the top you are.

                  I get your point when you put it like that.

                  I know 200K is bad, but there’s no need to call me Macclesfield though! 😆 I

                    Haha sorry! Wasn't about you though - was more about my area, Macclesfield being close to Manchester.

    Considering long term fixtures, would you have Salah and Mane or Sterling and Kun?
    Can double on one of the teams while probably staying away from Arsenal and Chelsea till the end of the season.

    Kun Rash Jim could be season keepers, while Son covering Spurs and Pogba for United double up as they should keep form imo

    1. Andy Ftw

      Kun Sterling

  4. anish10

    Is anyone fancying Aguero > auba (c) for one GW?

    Haven’t got the best bench and would need to take out one of sterling/Aguero for 1 gw to field a full playing XI

      Yes ATM

    2. Dave Bauer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      Depending on cup results, possibly yes.

    3. ChuckN
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      I was planning to do it gw 26 but thank god I held off.

      Definitely considering this week but now I have a bit of $$ tied up in Kun I'm wondering if I should hold and swap out Duffy instead (my only other blank).

    4. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      wouldnt recommend Aguero Auba hockey cokey. keep aguero and get a cheap fodder with pouints potential who can cover kun in blank gw

      1. Dave Bauer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 10 days ago

        I began the Auba > Aguero hokey cokey before GW25 so I’m going to disagree with this. Depending on cup results I’m comfortable carrying on with the old switcheroos.

        1. HIAFL (Howe to Train your D…
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 10 days ago

          This.

    5. Jayv807
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      I had Auba and decided not to do the hokie cokie with Kun. Didnt work out well.

    6. YEAH PITCH!
      6 months, 10 days ago

      No. Hokey Cokey is another transfer tied up.

  5. HurriKane

    6 months, 10 days ago

    My set and forget team: 1489 points

    Az team: 1491 points (358k)

    No offence to Az. Ive been listening to scoutcast a lot and he's a very down to earth likable guy who gives very helpful insight. Hope he regains some momentum and finish at much higher rank 😉

    Here's my set & forget team

    Begovic Boruc
    Robbo Mendy Baily (AWB Boly)
    Salah Mane Richarlison Bilva (Stephens)
    Aguero Zaha King

    1. Miniboss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Lol so what? Love to beat the guy while he’s down I see.

      1. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 10 days ago

        Set and forget since when??

        1. HurriKane
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 10 days ago

          gw1.. more like my set and forget team is doing well as its got same amount of points as a regular top fpl player

    2. drughi
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      kind of depressing that I only have 115 points more then a set and forget team

      1. drughi
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 10 days ago

        plus can you have more then 1 team ? isn't that classified as cheating

        1. HurriKane
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 10 days ago

          we have created a set and forget league alongside regular ml league. both with prizes 😉

      2. Mo Mané Mo Problems
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 10 days ago

        It’s not normal. This season has been mega template.

        I calculated all the GW1 dead teams for my ML (x9 players). Only one guy was smashing his dead team, and that was mainly because his GW1 team had no salah and Mane (c). And by smashing I mean about 200 points better off.

        Basically set and forget was easy as Salah will have contributed 350 points straight away. Then as long as you picked some players who didn’t get injured you’ll have picked up some decent scores.

        1. Dave Bauer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 10 days ago

          This. Set and forget teams should be doing pretty ok this year.

          1. Mo Mané Mo Problems
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 10 days ago

            Yep, those teams weren’t even designed to be set and forget, just their team from GW1.

            If I had designed a set and forget I’d probably be close to my own rank I imagine. (35k)

      3. circusmonkey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 10 days ago

        Kind of depressing how many people say 'then' when they mean 'than'. The American influence I think.

    3. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      Btw Salah(C)

    4. Mo Mané Mo Problems
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      My GW1 team if I had made no transfers would be on 1481 plus Patricio, Jota and Jimenez to go (65 for the week so far).

      This just shows how easy making a set and forget team was this year.

      My actual points are: 1579. So I’ve only made 100 odd points.

  6. fenixri
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 10 days ago

    Salah before xmas sale 1k->10k OR, managed to bounce back to 5k. Got Auba instead Kun, 5k->23k. 🙁
    Oh well atleast I got all my chips and nice pead in ml.

    Auba missing out game really hurt us Kun non owners.

    1. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      My ML rival had Auba and Pogba Vice.

  7. swisstime
    • 2 Years

    (1) Mane+Pereira or (2) Eriksen+Alexander-Arnold?

    1. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      1 all day long.

    2. Dave Bauer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Wait for cup results. If Palace go through Spurs will blank in GW31 and there’s your answer.

    3. swisstime

      Thanks Dave analysis

  8. YEAH PITCH!

    Why not Antonio instead of F.Anderson?

    1. Kiwivillan

      Both equally not scoring much lately

    Anyone with thoughts about rashford? Just a rare occurrence or a worrying trend?

    1. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Its gonna happen. A lot of players to suck up to.

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      He played nearly every minute since OGS took over

    3. FPLGraham
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 10 days ago

      Circumstantial IMO. Wanted him rested for PSG, especially after playing most of the last match with a dead leg.

      Would have likely come on if needed but game pattern meant he could get the full rest.

  10. Tmel

    Best 9.3 or under mid to bring in for the foreseeable? (already have Son & Pog and am maxed out on Wolves)

      He’s up to 7% already. Keep it coming!!

    Ryan Button
    Alonso Doherty Digne Diop Bennett
    Salah Son Sterling Pogba Richarlison
    Rashford Jimenez Quaner

    2 FT and 2.5 itb

    I will wait until after FA Cup matches but how does this sound for the next two gw's:

    GW27: Alonso + Richarlison + Quaner -> Bednarek + McNeil + Aubameyang (-4)
    GW28: Digne -> TAA (FT)

    1. MTPockets

      It was great but didn't cap him and rest of team was crap leading to mediocre scores

      It was a good run. I jumped from 375k to 79k in 4 gameweeks. Got the (c) the 1st time but not this.... complaining seems a bit greedy so I'm happy with how it played out

    3 Blankers, what to do?

    Fabianski
    Robertson Doherty AWB Bednarek
    Son Salah Pogba
    Aguero Jimenez Rashford

    Hamer Richarlison Alonso Hojberg

    A) Aguero to Auba with 1FT and play Bednarek
    B) Aguero + Richarlison --> Auba + F.Anderson
    C) Aguero + Alonso --> Auba + Kiko Fir

    C) Also allows me to get Aguero for Rashford the following week keeping Auba and Sergio!!! I like this one

    All advise welcome 🙂

    2. Mane + Rashford

    team atm:
    Fab
    Doherty Robbo - AWB
    Mane - Salah - Pogba - Son
    Augero - Rash - Jiminez

    thanks!

  19. Konstaapeli

    Hazard + Kamara to F.Anderson + Jiménez for free is reasonable, right?

    Or any better alternatives to Anderson? 8.7 to spend. Have Son, Pogba & Salah.

  20. FPLGraham
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 10 days ago

    Guessing a fair few here are joining me in rocking the Sane / Aubameyang / Rashford triple bagel?

    Who's coming off the bench for you?

    I've got:

    Anderson - 2pts
    Digne - 2pts
    Lascelles - TBD. [probably 1pt]/

  21. Somnus84
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 10 days ago

    Is it worth free hitting this week? Reasons:

    - 4 bgw players
    - Gendouzi is another....
    - 5 players in the Liverpool/United game
    - rivals will not do it and chasing down a 45 point deficit
    - weird gameweek with no outstanding fixturess so I see it as a week to potentially make up points with some luck

    Lloris, Boruc
    Robertson, Wan-Bisaka, Shaw, Duffy*, Keane*
    Mane, Pogba, Son, Gendouzi, Richarlison*
    Rashford, Auba, Aguero*

    With 1FT I will probably go Keane -> Evans

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      No. Waste. Get rid of Rich

    2. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 10 days ago

      So I'm guessing you're gonna get some West Ham, Newcastle and Arsenal players in your FH? Might be a good move, but I would rather do 2 FT/take a hit.

      1. The 5% Team
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 10 days ago

        put Aguero, Duffy and another one on the bench. Transfer out Rich and Keane

        1. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 10 days ago

          Also this

      2. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 10 days ago

        This

  22. tafrère
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 10 days ago

    2 FTs (3 wolves players in my current team)

    A. Richarlison + Keane > Almiron + Pereira
    B. Richarlison + Jonny > Jota + Pereira

    I guess tomorrow game could be key to help me decide.

    1. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      B out of those. But come up with something else

  23. The 5% Team
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 10 days ago

    Anyone think KDB will be a viable fantasy option for the rest of this season, or will he be more of a differential going forward?

    I guess he's fully fit now, but hasn't given any good returns yet.

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      Still no

    2. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 10 days ago

      Needs better stats, still to early

  24. Simmoo
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 10 days ago

    Kolasinac or Pereira? (Ideally keep from now until end of season)

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 10 days ago

      Pereira

  25. dbeck
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 10 days ago

    Fab
    Robbo Tomkins lascelles Doherty
    Salah Pogba JWP
    Auba Rashford Jiménez

    Button TAA puncheon sterling

    Not looking great for the blank, Tomkins to Chilwell for free worth it or should save or ditch someone else? 1ft and 0.7itb

  26. StayoutheSpiceZone

    Looking at the fixtures for GW27 - I don't see many stand out 'points' games. I might just try and ride it out.

    Arsenal vs Saints (Saints are not that bad away from home defensively)
    Man U vs Liv (most people have players from these teams)
    Burnley vs Spurs (I do not see Spurs beating them tbh)

    The only game I think may have some value is WH vs a poor Fulham.

    Thoughts? I currently have 9 players for DGW27 by the way. No goalie!

    1. FPLGraham
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 10 days ago

      Spurs will win. Burnley to hit the bar/post 800 times, probably miss a pen, and then Skipp to scuff one in 90+4.

      Get a goalie btw (Boruc?).

  27. merin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Whats the most important transfer here?

    Patricio Hamer
    Robertson Laporte Doherty Dunk AWB
    Salah Son Pogba Richarlison Stephens
    Auba Rashford Jimenez

    2.7 ITB, 1 FT

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 10 days ago

      Richarlison needs to be first to go imo

      1. merin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 10 days ago

        Thanks. Also really want Pereria now. What defender would you ship to make room for him?

  28. Simmoo
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 10 days ago

    Firmino + Sterling -> Aubameyang + Mane?

    1. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 10 days ago

      for free, maybe yes....or maybe bench Sterling (lot of money of course) and do only Auba

      1. Jellyfish
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 10 days ago

        Only Firmino > Auba if you have funds.

        With Sterlings form and Citeh fixtures he's a keeper

        1. Simmoo
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 10 days ago

          Yeah I cant afford just Firmino to Aubameyang.

          Other potential fund raisers are Jimenez, Salah, Pogba, Son (hence why I chose Sterling!)

  29. wasp3000
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 10 days ago

    50 pts from 6 players so far and another red arrow to kick me out of the top 10k.

    It seems like my hard work all season (to get to 2.5 K OR in GW 24) has gone out the window due to one mistake in keeping Aubameyang over Aguero (-4) before the DGW 25. It continues to bite me.

    Very frustrated with FPL currently 🙁

    1. Miniboss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 10 days ago

      I relate 100%

      1. wasp3000
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 10 days ago

        Very frustrating. I'm way ahead in my cash ML's so no hassle there but trying to beat my best OR 6k and it feels like it's coming down to 1 lucky/unlucky decision and trying to predict Pep's thought process.

    2. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      It's a 38GW season, only your rank at the end of it counts. Don't sulk, realise that there is luck involved, and you have to take the good luck with the bad luck when it comes

      1. wasp3000
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 10 days ago

        Yes agreed and not sulking at all (apologies if it came across that way). Just quite frustrated with the Aguero non move and how it turned out.

    Anyone else rolling a transfer this week?

    1. Jellyfish
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      Not I, Did Sane > Mane last night to beat the price drop/rise

    2. FPLGraham
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 10 days ago

      Nope, probably Digne -> Pereira or Chilwell as a long term move.

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 10 days ago

        Keep Digne for Cardiff in GW28 if you can field 11 this GW

        1. FPLGraham
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 10 days ago

          Nah. My 11th is Bednarek so might as well look to upgrade that spot.

          Everton aren't good - could even see Cardiff doing something there.

    3. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 10 days ago

      Aye, thinking about it. Already have 11 playing. It's whether I want to improve it.
