Scout Notes

Which Spurs assets looked the best in Kane’s absence?

It was Lucas Moura (£6.7m) who proved to be the chief beneficiary of Harry Kane‘s (£12.6m) injury on Saturday afternoon.

Fantasy Premier League managers have spent the last few days trying to work out which of the crocked forward’s colleagues would take his place as the main goal threat, especially considering Spurs’ favourable fixtures.

A hat-trick for Moura in Spurs’ 4-0 win over Huddersfield has now thrown him into the Fantasy conversation for the coming weeks.

However, it was a result that only exacerbated the frustration of managers whose key options were rotated out of the side by Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs 4-0 Huddersfield

Goals: Victor Wanyama (£4.9m), Lucas Moura x 3 (£6.7m)

Assists: Fernando Llorente (£5.1m), Moussa Sissoko (£4.9m), Christian Eriksen (£9.3m), Heung-Min Son (£8.8m)

With a Double Gameweek coming up against Manchester City (away) and Brighton (home) next week, Moura has played his way into our thoughts with an impressive display against Huddersfield. Owned by just 5.8% of managers, he has the potential to be a cheap and powerful differential in Kane’s absence between now and the end of the season.

Only Fernando Llorente (£5.1m) had more touches in the penalty area than the Brazilian on Saturday lunch-time, while no player had more shots on target than him in the whole match. Crucially, Moura was deployed as a centre-forward next to Llorente, a position that could get the best out of him if he can hold onto it. Pochettino was full of praise for the player so his chances of heavy involvement in the coming weeks look good at the moment.

“He was so important even before people start to recognise his value. We are happy because people can see how good he is now. He’s doing a fantastic job, he’s a great professional and a great guy.” – Maurizio Pochettino

“It’s a special day for me, a good moment, it’s my first hat-trick in Europe so I’m so happy and I don’t have words to express this moment. I just have to say thank you to God, my teammates, I’m so happy here and we’ll keep going strong to make history here.” – Mauricio Pochettino

Llorente huffed and puffed up front and did everything but score in a very good performance. He registered six shots in the box, more than any other player on the pitch, but did not hit the target with any of them. The Spaniard went very close at the start of the second half, showing great control to bring down a Juan Foyth (£5.0m) pass in the box, only to rattle the crossbar.

Llorente also flashed two headers wide, one in each half. His 0.8% ownership can rightly feel disappointed with just an assist. He also picked up a knock towards the end of the game which is why Son Heung-min (£8.8m) had to come on. Pochettino had the following to say when he was asked about the current injuries ahead of the return leg against City, including Llorente’s:

“We need to assess Fernando (Llorente). We hope we can recover Dele Alli and Harry Winks. We’ll see because yesterday he felt his groin in training. Dele, we’ll see. It’s not clear and we’ll see what happens.” – Mauricio Pochettino

Son captainers would have been pulling their hair out after he came on for a brief cameo to replace the exhausted Llorente in the 86th minute. However, he did at least manage to get an assist when he teed up Moura to complete an impressive hat trick.

The South Korean was one of many key Spurs assets to fall foul of the rotation that Pochettino had promised us. Influenced by Champions League matches before and after Double Gameweek 34, the Spurs boss rang the changes on Saturday lunch-time, making seven changes in total.

The leader of the captaincy poll Son found himself on the bench alongside Kieran Trippier (£6.0m), Danny Rose (£5.8m) and Toby Alderweireld (£6.0m). Not surprisingly, Dele Alli (£8.8m) and Kane missed out completely due to their respective injuries.

“We’ll see (on Alli’s hopes of playing midweek). He’s doing some training sessions with the protection. He needs to feel comfortable. It all depends on the time.” – Mauricio Pochettino

Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.2m) came in for just his first start in 2019 at right wing-back in place of Trippier with Ben Davies (£5.6m) on the left in place of Rose.

Davinson Sanchez (£5.8m) was flanked by Jan Vertonghen (£5.9m) and youngster Foyth who made his first appearance since Gameweek 27 in a back three.

Walker-Peters and Davies got forward at every opportunity and were always a threat but neither are viable FPL options with Trippier and Rose likely to be Pochettino’s first-choice wing-backs for the final few weeks of the season. These rotation-prone players are probably best avoided.

As mentioned, Moura and Llorente were tasked with leading the attack for Spurs and they did so to great effect, linking up well throughout. They earned praise from their manager for how they performed together, with Pochettino especially pleased to get a positive result with so much rotation.

“The football is moving so quickly. I think today Fernando was very good and an unbelievable afternoon for Lucas Moura. When you have 24/25 players they need to play. I thought the performance was very professional. The hat-trick will help build his confidence.”

Spurs dominated possession throughout and opened the scoring midway through the first half through Victor Wanyama (£4.9m) who broke from midfield to get on the end of a Davies pass which was intended for Llorente. The Spaniard was deemed to have got a slight touch on the ball before it ran through to the Kenyan who coolly rounded Ben Hamer (£3.9m) to slot home his first goal for over a year.

Three minutes later, the game was all but over, this time Wanyama’s midfield partner Moussa Sissoko (£4.9m) burst forward and played in Moura who finished in style, giving Hamer no chance. Spurs were able to take their foot off the gas after half an hour. Moura wrapped the game up late on with two great goals, one a fine finish from a great cross from Christian Eriksen (£9.3m), the other provided by Son.

Eriksen made his owners sweat, leaving it late to register his assist for Moura’s second. Otherwise, it was a quiet display from the Dane. He spent a lot of the game playing deep, receiving the ball from the centre backs and spraying it around the pitch. In fact, Wanyama and Sissoko were often more advanced than the Dane. Eriksen got forward a bit more in the second half and had a decent shot deflected onto the post. Despite playing deeper at times, he still managed five shots at goal, more than Moura, but none of them landed on target.

Eriksen also created more chances than anyone else on the pitch (six) although his set pieces were below his usual standards. He hit the wall from a good position in the first half. That continued a run of over three years in which he has no goals from direct free-kicks for Spurs.

Huddersfield posed little threat to Hugo Lloris (£5.4m) in the Spurs goal. Their best chances fell to Jon Stankovic (£3.9m) who should have done better when he got on the end of a corner slicing his effort wide and Steve Mounie (£5.8m) who headed wide from a good chance not long after coming on. The clean sheet never looked in too much danger of being wiped out. The French goalkeeper was a popular pick for those playing their second Wildcard this week and they’ve got off to a good start with him. Aside from the City fixture, Spurs have a nice run-in which should yield more shutouts.

Jan Siewert made three changes to his side with Juninho Bacuna (£4.2m), Florent Hadergjonaj (£4.3m) and Elias Kachunga (£4.8m) coming into the starting XI to replace Tommy Smith (£4.4m), Aaron Mooy (£5.0m) and Alex Pritchard (£4.8m) who were all named on the Terriers’ bench. Jonas Lossl (£4.4m) and Philip Billing (£4.5m) were once again omitted from the matchday squad.

“I’m disappointed because the result doesn’t reflect the way we played today. We wanted to be the first team to score here and we know it’s not easy to play Spurs because they’ll run you ragged.” – Jan Siewert

Tottenham Hotspur XI (3-5-2): Lloris, Walker-Peters, Sanchez, Vertonghen (Rose 83’), Foyth, Davies, Sissoko (Skipp 73’), Wanyama, Eriksen, Moura, Llorente (Son 86’)

Huddersfield Town XI (4-4-1-1): Hamer, Durm (Mounie 68’), Kongolo, Schindler, Hadergjonaj, Lowe, Stankovic (Mooy 81’), Hogg, Bacuna (Williams 90’), Kachunga, Ahearne-Grant.

    Nothing would make me happier later today than for David Silva to be fully rested (out of the squad), or even have a little bug/the sniffles. Oh, and for Liverpool to win, Mané to score a brace and Tiger to win The Masters. 😀

                  I would kill for a top 1 k finish. Hope you can stay there. Well done.
                  11 years and I have never done better than top 30k. More consistent the last few years but never anything spectacular.

            Either way would be good to see the original scout on the scoutcast. He is surely missed.

            I think if he WAS still on the scoutcast he would not have picked redmond the 'community' and david munday/joe lepper/az would have talked him out of it.

                      No you are not especially when you are on a wildcard and could have picked him if you were that confident.
                      If you were not on a wildcard you would have at least some excuse.

                          Can you explain why you did not pick Pogba if you thought he was going to score a brace?
                          And you were clearly confident on it.
                          With that midfield you have it would simply mean mane out pogba in.

                      No. Bragging about 'calling' players without getting them in yourself (especially on Wildcard) is worthless.

                        Its up to you if you refuse to do the logic on this. Getting. Eriksen and Son on WC was because I thought they had potential to do even better, not hard to understand is it?

                          The thing that's hard to understand is bragging about someone you didn't even have the confidence to pick yourself. Obviously you don't think he was a good pick, so why bring it up? It's pathetic tbh

                            Maybe it's not bragging then?

                                Just an attempt to engage. The only issue is the way you choose to interpret the post

                                    It’s an attempt to seek praise

                                    I’ve never seen one go so wrong

                              Well... Prefer Liverpool attacking cover, especially for car HUD. United form is not great, is it...

                                But Pogba was going to get a brace you would be able to get Mane back after it?
                                Or is mane going to get a hattrick against chelsea?
                                If you have a link to that one I would be impressed 😀

                        I am City less on WC would not mind if that was true. Partly I was afraid of rotation and I want pol to win so bad.
                        Should have also listened to the one or two who bigging up Moura early last week but he certainly never made the template.

                          The funniest thing about this whole thing is the fact he wanted praise despite not even getting the player on WC 😆

                              No people are confused that you’re seeking praise over a player you didn’t actually even go onto own. How’re we meant to say well done when you didn’t even have the conviction to own

                              I must admit I am a bit annoyed with that lucas Moura haul. I briefly considered getting him for the fun of it.
                              Then thought no that's madness.
                              Got in Sigurdsson instead v fulham also got in Vardy after looking at his two single gameweek newcastle and west ham.
                              Did not see any games over the weekend so far were leicester and everton that bad?

                              Lindelof on the bench, is that a rest before CL as well? Carrying him into DGW is a risk obviously, but I really can’t see any Man U defenders locked away!

                                It's probably time for us all to chill and stick with what we have for now. Last thing we need to do is compound this week by taking the wrong ones out again 🙂

                              Duffy (c) - would you normally consider him a captain shout in a single fixture against Cardiff?

                              Hey guys , serious question , i had a top 500 finish last season , this season currently on 7k , but still find myself like around 250 pts behind the ovr leader ! Like wtf!
                              I know i make better decisions than most of the people out there eg: Getting in Moura this week , have had 6 captain blanks out of 34 (anewpla), but how in the hell is there still a 200+ gap between me and the leader!
                              Its just ridiculous!
                              Can anyone actually tell me what does it take to be on the very top ?
                              I genuinely want to know.

                              Thankyou

                                It always like that. It's tight up to a certain fairly high rank then the curve gets exponential

                                  So you mean to say it all comes down to luck in the end ?

                                    Not matter how good you are at this game winning it requires luck.
                                    Consistent top 10k or 1k finishes can't be luck that is skill but going that extra bit does require luck - yes.

                                You're doing better than most so I would be pretty satisfied.

                                  Yeah but its depressing to be good but still have no chance to actually win it! 🙁

                                So many different variables- too many to list.
                                You’re having a heck of a season being top 7k. 250 points behind may be too much at this stage of season even for differentials. Just focus on finishing the highest you can- I wouldn’t worry about catching the leader too much at this point and just enjoy your rank and trying to finish the season strong

                                  Thanks for that.
                                  But what variables are you exactly talking about ?

                                  As i said 6 captain blanks
                                  But yeah some of the non-blankers were indeed 6 pointers!
                                  (But genuinely there were no better captain picks those weeks)

                                you lost about over 5 points per week on average on the leader that's how.

                                Answer to your question research, time and luck.
                                There are plenty of those who consider themselves fpl experts (by themselves or others) who are having poor seasons relativity speaking.

                                  Yes , do follow these guys once in a while , but they have amazing track records!
                                  Surely , 1 bad season doesnt change that ?!

                                  In hindsight , maybe decisions like captaining Moura play a major role but thought that bringing him in was enough of a differential in itself.

                                You sold him and spent a lot more buying him back whilst on wildcard 😆

                                  Who cares about TV.. High TV means you buy trash like Son instead of Moura

                              I am hoping for a man city clean sheet with 0-0 or a 1-0 win with the likes of foden/Mahrez scoring.

                                4-1 Man City sounds better, Aguero and Sterling scoring the 4 and assisting each other.

                                  Considering I went without city attack if that happens I might end up making -20 in hits in a rage the following gameweek.
                                  Already annoyed I picked Vardy despite the fact I predicted that Newcastle would sit back and Vardy would find it hard on the break. (still though he was better than other rotation risk options)
                                  I expect him to get a brace v the hammers now.... 😀

                                      one of those two has to win the league and I think I'd prefer Liverpool to wait another while for their title 😉

                                      DF have better fixtures on GW36, but Brooks have FUL (H) on GW35.

                                      TC in consideration too. If Salah was not too bad, GW36 looks best but not confidence now.

                                          GW38 TC have one risk of motivation. It highly depends on what situation of Premier League and Champion League will be at that time. Also, situation of Brighton in relegation fight too.

                                      Is Deulofeu likely to play both games next GW? Considering him as a captain punt.

                                          90 minutes against Hudds is enough for him to haul mate.
                                          Wait for this gw match & see whether he keeps his place in the team

                                          Huge rotation there. It looks like only Foster is guaranteed.

                                        People were quick to say Bournemouth were on the beach after the hammering last week, but no one's talking about Wolves being on the beach because Jimenez and Jota fit nicely in the WC budget. They play against Brighton who may still be scrapping to avoid relegation and Arsenal who have top 4 to play for. Wolves could compete for that Europa league spot but who knows if they really want it.

                                          Umm.. No reason to ignore Europa League spot.

                                          City are most favourite to win FA Cup. Get to finish #7 should be really a perfect summary of their great season.

                                            Every reason to ignore the Europa league spot. Burnley will tell you what it did to them last season if you don't have squad depth. Wolves got knocked out of the FA cup too, and maybe the disappointment played a part in their loss to Southampton.

                                              I see what you mean. Hope we will get some more opinions on their performances and motivations in Southampton match.

                                            I was very confident about Jimenez © in gw 35, but have to admit now I'm not.
                                            Their dgw is good enough though.
                                            Can bin one of Jota/Doherty afterwards.
                                            Jimenez, i got him this gw for the first time this season. (Maybe why he blanked 😀 ) so i am not selling him.

                                              I really like their DGW and have only Jimenez now. Budget allow me to change Puncheon + Diop -> Jota + Doherty, but I'm not yet confident. Hope we will know more.

                                                  Yeah
                                                  And tbh, Southampton are playing good atm so we should not read too much into that.
                                                  They kept pool at bay for so long in the match.
                                                  I like their chances in dgw (Wolves) but not 100% sure about Jimenez © anymore

                                                I've gone with Firmino.
                                                As pointed out in the Scoutcast he's playing as a CF atm. Also in good form

                                              Be clever. Don't C Vardy when the bus is parked.
                                              Be wise. A nice DGW and Dunk a goal threat and Brighton ok at home 2 natches.
                                              Ryan a safe bet too.
                                              Knockeart a shoe in and no reliant on clean sheets.

                                                Wildcards have been a curse for me this season. Got rid of Salah the week of his Bournemouth hat trick on the first. Used this one to dump all the underperforming beach club flops who let me down in the blanks: Lascelles, Anderson, Fraser, Wilson. May just go back to my old casual tactics of burning the WC a few weeks into the season.

                                                Only need 14pts from Sterling to match late trade before deadline for Pogba. If kept Pogba was getting Knockaert so not 15pts. Sterling guaranteed bench right?
