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.

    Who misses out when Son/Alli return to Spurs line up?

    Llorente for sure..

    But does Erikssen drop deep?

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Erikssen would have couple more assists if Llorente was any good at football.

    2. Merlinsnose
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Will Moura keep his place do you think?

      Worth bringing him in for Jota?

      Ta

  7. Duffy Dunk

    Thinking of taking a -4 for Vardy+Duffy -> Lacazette+Kolasinac, which will give the following squad for bench boost gw35.
    Would you change anything?

    Lloris Foster
    Robertson Laporte TAA Kolasinac Valery
    Sterling Mane Eriksen Son Jota
    Lacazette Jimenez Deeney

    De Gea
    Pereira VVD Dunk
    Salah Richarlison Maddison Mane
    Wilson Higuain Rondon

        This. And the ones coming in look decent. Let's hope they can take advantage of their dgw, unlike Brighton.

    2. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Stats and fixtures suggest deulofeu over jota

    3. Whats the Huth
      • 3 Years

      Keep Rondon

  9. Bielsa's Binoculars
    • 4 Years

    Is Valery likely to be fit for the double?

    Was it only cramp?

      Heard that it was a cramp.

      People don´t read stats, Bou is terrible away if you count how many times they blanked but when they score they usually scores big. Most of us hoped for the first one to happen but Bou turned up and then they are much better team than Brighton. Red card after 6o minutes and already 2-0 down alsocannot be foreseen-)

      Strange week, 19 points and GW rank 3.5m and only went down from 7k to 7.5k

      And to all those with double Brighton and Duffy cap, there is one game left to play.

  12. Bielsa's Binoculars

    The Duffy (c) isn’t the thing that has got me

    It’s choosing KDB over Pogba 🙁

    1. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Kdb match is remaining and he is a sure starter so atleast dont crib in advance

  13. Jonny Sutt

    KDB to sterling worth -4?

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Stop and think why did you pick KDB over Sterling i first place.

    2. Whats the Huth
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Why?
      City players will be rotated terribly in the doubles.
      Only KDB may be the only one to start both.

  14. RECKLESS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Wilson and Fraser have Fulham next. Got a measley rise of 600 ranks to 3k even with pogba in team. Atleast glad next season onwards I will just enjoy football and dont have favs in neutral matches with no fpl. Too many high quality in these superrich epl teams bringing lot of random match results and 6mn easily informed managers to compete with Phew. Glad stock investments are much easier than this.
    Hoping to finish unlikely under 1k in my last season here! Wish we luck

    1. The Overthinker
      • 2 Years

      May the force be with you

  15. NUFCAndrew

    I have David Brook on my bench 🙁

  16. Bielsa's Binoculars
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    I’m on 21 with Duffy (c), Dunk, Murray, KDB, Aguero and Robertson left to play

    Reason to worry or should everything be dreamy in the end?

    1. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Outside any ok Sir gives rise in rank bro so will be good week as long as Murray starts next

    2. Whats the Huth
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Triple Brighton.

      Unappealing game for your City players. Will rotate too

      Only Robinson might save you.

      It might be ok. But I’d be worried

    3. The Tinkerman
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Similar position, same score of 21

      Duffy, Dunk, KDB, Mane, Aguero, Deeney to play.

      Just hoping to avoid too big of a red. Haz and Salah a worry.

  17. The Overthinker
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    I don't feel so good come gw35

  18. TheGman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Suggestions for a 7.7m Mid to replace Maddison? Moura?
    Or could keep him and save the free transfer till after Leicester play West Ham.

    1. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Keep Moura ofcourse. Maddison can be replace by deulofue

      1. TheGman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I meant Moura to replace Maddison... But thanks Deulofeu and Jota other options

        1. Whats the Huth
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          If want to know if Moura is an option first. Especially when Alli is back

          1. TheGman
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Yeah, I'm thinking avoid the bandwagon. Lightning won't strike twice will it?

            1. Whats the Huth
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              No idea. I don’t think it will during the doubles. But certainly, perhaps after the doubles he could be gold

              All depends on how the team lines up with Ali in the team

          2. bench boost for every gamew…
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            A lot depends on the second leg, if Spurs out then only league back, and Moura is not nailed even with Kane out, because Poch deploys different tactics and material for every game. LLorente could start vs Brighton if Poch sees the need of an big outlet and then that might leave 3 spots for 4 players to compete, but Winks is injured and if he still is that makes eriksen the natural choice as the CM, which again opens up for all 4 players to start. He could also opt for wing backs system and then the spots are tightened, point is it´s hard to say that he is nailed or first option. But i would not worry too much

  19. The Overthinker
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Have jwp, deeney, Valery, Vardy in my BB team.

    Trippier is one issue.

    Also have 3.4 ITB.

    1. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      No query. What reply you expect? Or just thinking out loudly?

      1. The Overthinker
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Thinking out loud.

        Expected a lot from my wc team.

        And suddenly going into 35 with BB active don't really think I've got the best possible team

        1. Whats the Huth
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          This doubles was always going to be rotten.
          This is the first time we have 6 teams in Europa/Champion League.
          Rotation will be heavy.
          Players like Vardy etc is the better choice. Even though they don’t have doubles.

          DGW blindness for a lot of folks unfortunately

    2. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Trippier got his rest

  20. Whats the Huth
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Moura.
    Is he a option now?

  21. TheGman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Got no Spurs or City cover.
    What do you all reckon?
    A) Maddisson + Vardy > Jota + Deeney -4
    B) Maddisson + Vardy > Moura + Deeney -4
    C) Keep Vardy till after West Ham game

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Keep Vardy.
      Spurs and city’s doubles arent appealing. Plus they will be rotated

    TAA, Robbo, Doherty, Duffy, Bednarek
    Mané, Haz, Maddison, Fraser, Pogba
    Vardy, Wilson, Jimenez

    Speroni and Maddison to Foster and Sterling (-4)

    Any other moves? Vardy’s party over? Do I need Son?

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      You don’t need son yet. See what happens first in the champions league
      I even wouldn’t bother with sterling. Or any city for that matter
      See how the results goes. If city drops points. Then they’ll field their strongest teams in the doubles.
      If not, expect rotation

      1. Whats the Huth
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        To be fair. I expect rotation for city players regardless.

        1. Mo Mané Mo Problems
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Perhaps if Liverpool lose/draw, but I’d expect strongest XI vs Spurs and United. These are huge fixtures regardless of one of the tightest title races of the last few years.

          Will monitor line ups from today and see how they fare midweek.

          Could also do:

          Speroni, Madd, Vardy to Foster, Son, Kun.

      Didn't realise it would be that low, or is this just a reaction to yesterday's rotation?

        If you look at fixtures for City and look back at Sterling played 90 min in last 2 matches, and with Spurs twice in a week, then United 3 days later and Burnley away, people reckon this game to be the one with rotation. As only Sterling owner and Pool fan i hope they do rotate.

    Saints season ticket holder. Summary of Saints and Wolves:

    1. Redmond looked dangerous throughout
    2. Ings isn’t match fit. Long improved the team significantly when he came on
    3. JWP was ok but wasn’t on form
    4. Valery was fine when he came off (precautionary as suffering from cramp)
    5. Hojberg played really deep and had no attacking threat
    6. Jiminez and Jota looked frustrated but their movement was good and they could’ve had points in that game
    7. Doherty looked knackered
    8. Boly looked a threat on every set piece. The guy is a unit!

      Nice, Doherty was subbed for that reason?

      No idea what to do with him.

      1. HollywoodXI
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        The substitution was tactical. He’s not injured but definitely needed a rest. He was struggling to get forward in the second half.

      How does Bednarek looks in general not just last game ?
      Didnt play at all for Sparky now seems to be a regular and people have high hopes for him in Poland.

      1. HollywoodXI
        • 4 Years

        He looked solid. It helps he’s playing alongside Yoshida who is underrated by many but he marshals the defence.

      2. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        He is reasonably fast for a centerback, not afraid to puts his foot in, but still has some things to improve on in his play. Poland will have a solid cb pair with him and that guy, hm, what´s his name? Kamil Glik?

      I just knew I should have gone with Boly.....hindsight eh!!

      Cheers for this Hollywood very helpful especially number 4.Thought I might have to use a precious transfer on Valery but will now hold.

    Just woken up from an all day wedding yesterday, have I really got a triple defensive nought, 3rd sub on 16points & did I really wildcard out a 15point forward for a 1point striker who “might” score a few more points in a fabulous dgw? Nah, must still be drunk

    1. Tube!!
      • 5 Years

      Sound like you need to sober up pretty quick!!

      1. Flynniesta
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Think I need to top the beer up, I’m laughing at mine & my competitors scores. Don’t think I’d be so chirpy if I were more sober. Might revisit my points when Hazard gets a hatrick & compare him to his replacement Jota 🙂

          My mate has 7 points (including captain) for 7 players. He’s not happy lol

            Please post a link to his team - this will make us all feel better (even Az!!)

                To be far he still has enough decent picks to play and still get a respectable score

    Vardy to who? Planned for A but currently prefer both B and C to the original plan

    A Lacazette (always bring in a DGWer - despite what we have seen happen over and over)
    B Firmino (Cardiff almost as good as 2 games anyway, plus followed by Huddersfield)
    C Keep (West Ham are terrible atm) and have 2FTs for GW36

    1. Hernandez Lynam
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      D -4 to bring in Aguero is another option I guess

      1. Mo Mané Mo Problems
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I’d go with D).

        Depending on his minutes today and against Spurs midweek.

        Fairly confident Sterling and Kun will start both DGW matches.

    2. TheGman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I'm currently leaning C. But Jimenez is another good option I think

      1. Hernandez Lynam
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Agree but already have him and Deeney

    3. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Oh.. I forgot Lacazette as DGW35 option. Btw, the original plan is usually the best one for my experiences.

      1. Hernandez Lynam
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        But Arsenal are terrible, especially away from home

  29. NATSTER
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Would you go with Deeney or Aguero on DGW35 ?

    Tough fixtures for Man City, so I guess Pep will play Aguero in both TOT (H) and MUN (A) if he doesn't get injured.

    Deeney has much better fixtures : HUD (A) and SOU (H). But, with FA Cup final, will the players still focus in the league?

    B. You'll be taking out Vardy anyways so doesn't matter if that ft is this week or next. Liverpool good run of games till the end of season and they'll be chasing the title
