Lloris and Trippier return for Spurs as Valery benched

Tuesday night’s team news was mixed for Fantasy managers as some options returned to their respective sides, while others did not.

Hugo Lloris (£5.4m) and Kieran Trippier (£6.0m) are back in the Spurs side to face Brighton.

Their goalkeeper missed the trip to Manchester City with a small injury, while Trippier was rested with Juan Foyth (£5.0m) deployed instead of him at right wing-back.

It looks like a back-four for Spurs tonight with Danny Rose (£5.8m), Jan Vertonghen (£5.9m) and Toby Alderweireld (£6.0m) joining Trippier in defence.

Those invested in the Spurs attack will be pleased to see that Son Heung-min (£8.8m), Fernando Llorente (£5.1m), Dele Alli (£8.8m) and Lucas Moura (£6.8m) made it into the starting XI.

Christian Eriksen (£9.3m) is also in the side but might be playing a deeper role alongside Victor Wanyama (£4.9m) with Eric Dier (£4.7m) on the bench – and Trippier’s may also impinge on his set piece potential too.

Meanwhile, Chris Hughton has made six changes to the Brighton outfit that drew 0-0 at Wolves.

Bruno (£4.4m) and Gaëtan Bong (£4.4m) drop out for Bernardo (£4.2m) and Martin Montoya (£4.3m).

Glenn Murray (£6.3m) drops out for Florin Andone (£5.0m) to lead the line, while Jurgen Locadia (£5.3m) and Alireza Jahanbakhsh (£6.7m) come in for Solly March (£4.7m) and José Izquierdo (£5.9m) on the flanks of the attack.

Perhaps a surprise to some is the fact that Watford’s two-man strike force has stayed the same for their second match of Double Gameweek 35.

Both Gerard Deulofeu (£5.6m) and Andre Gray (£6.0m) have kept their places after starting against Huddersfield.

Meanwhile, Jan Valery (£4.1m), who missed Southampton’s trip to Newcastle through illness, is fit enough only for the bench.

Nathan Redmond (£5.4m) retains his starting berth while Shane Long (£4.6m) comes in for Danny Ings (£5.4m) and Stuart Armstrong (£5.1m) replaces Josh Sims (£4.4m).

“There are a few fresh players after an intensive game on Saturday. It’s important for us mainly in the first row that we have good sprinting quality, and I think the two guys deserve to play. They played a good game in the second half against Newcastle and that’s why they get the chance today.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Spurs XI: Lloris; Rose, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Trippier; Wanyama, Eriksen; Son, Alli, Moura; Llorente.

Brighton XI: Ryan; Bernardo, Dunk, Duffy, Montoya; Stephens, Bissouma; Locadia, Groß, Jahanbakhsh; Andone.

Watford XI: Foster; Masina, Kabasele, Cathcart, Janmaat; Pereyra, Capoue, Doucouré, Hughes; Deulofeu, A Gray.

Southampton XI: Gunn; Bednarek, Stephens, Yoshida; Ward-Prowse, Oriol Romeu, Højbjerg, Bertrand; Redmond, Armstrong; Long.

    Repost: Should I do A or B for a BB in GW36??
    A) Vardy, Eriksen and Duffy to Firmino, Mane, and Yoshida (for -4)
    B) Vardy and Eriksen to Salah and Llorente (for free)

    I’m leaning A because it gives me two Pool attackers instead of just Salah. And also a decent defender in yoshida who had the most shots last week for his team.

    Current team:
    Foster Ryan
    Lamport - TAA - Tripper - Kolasinac - Duffy
    Sterling - Eriksen - Son - Doucouré- Hojberg
    Jiménez- Aguero - Vardy

    1. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      9, and 8 starting, Valery probably zero again.

      1. Konstaapeli
        • 3 Years

        Hot damn! Triple Brighton?

        1. Iceball
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

    2. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years

      5 + Ings & Valery

    3. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years

      4 in spurs game, 2 in Watford one and stupid Valery (7).

    4. Would Ed Woodward
      4 months, 25 days ago

      6 + Valery.

    5. drughi

      7 playing 1 benched

    6. Eddie`

      7.2

  11. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 25 days ago

    I will forgive the Valery fail. Just give us a Llorente haul (well, goal) and a Cathcart cleanie.
    Well done those who got a cheap striker playing both games in dgw. That alone feels like a win.

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      4 months, 25 days ago

      Shame Wilson missed about 17 sitters.

      1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 25 days ago

        Yup. That was harsh and for Mitrovic to score too 🙂

  12. wasp3000

    What happened Ward Prowse?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      he became a regular starter

    Well sometimes I go out by myself
    And I look across the water
    And I think of all the things, what you're doing
    And in my head I paint a picture
    'Cause since I've come on home,
    Well my body's been a mess
    And I've missed your ginger hair

    I hope you'll find the right man who'll fix it for ya
    And are you shopping anywhere,
    Changed the color of your hair, are you busy?
    And did you have to pay that fine
    You were dodging all the time, are you still dizzy?
    'Cause since I've come on home,
    Well my body's been a mess
    And I've missed your ginger hair
    And the way you like to dress
    Won't you come on off the bench

    1. Team Cruel

      You want Eriksen and Redmond to miss pens?

    2. Amey

      Hopefully Eriksen takes the pen 😛

      1. Chucky
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 25 days ago

        and scores on the rebound...

        1. Amey
          4 months, 25 days ago

          I'd take that 😉

  16. Amey
    4 months, 25 days ago

    With Valery benched, I don't want 0-0 in Watford & Southampton anymore 😛
    Come on Deulofeu & Yoshida !!

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      DEULOOOOOOOOOooooOOOOOooooOOOOooooOOO!!!11!

      1. Amey

        Another brace would do 😉

  17. Firminoooo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Lets go captein Deulofeu.....and Foster, Eriksen, Son, Vertonghen, Ryan, Duffy and Valery in from the bench.

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      What an awesome captain choice! Nice!

    2. Amey

      Your humble brags are just on another level

  18. drughi

    A JWP corner finding Yoshida with the goal would be nice

  19. Dakes.
    • 2 Years

    There’ll be tears if Son(c) blanks

  20. 'Broadsword Calling Da…
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 25 days ago

    So, with Valery on the bench, i'd have 11 points coming on for him. I'd take that please!

    1. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      He'll sub on when JWP gets sent off.

      1. Amey
        4 months, 25 days ago

        😀

    2. Sim Simma 🤷 🔑 🚘
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      Duffy bench points for me. Someone should super-glue Valery onto the bench

    3. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      ah thank you so much that confirms a 5 min run out bless you you have earned us all a point

      1. 'Broadsword Calling Da…
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 25 days ago

        haha, the fpl dgw horror I have had, you can all expect Val to come on for 1 min, score an own goal and receive a red card! But yeah, I like the super-glue idea for Val (fingers crossed).

  21. Bouncebackability
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 25 days ago

    Damage limitation for me tonight. You watch that bar steward Ryan save a peno

  22. 'Broadsword Calling Da…
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 25 days ago

    Erikson a little deep again, can see him to Salah / Mane being popular IF he does nothing today.

    1. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      Will be popular regardless.

    2. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      Eriksen & Ings > Bavel & Firmino for me.

  23. Bouncebackability
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 25 days ago

    If Spurs get a pen, Eriksen should take it considering he takes them for Denmark, but Alli will hog them no doubt. Can't imagine there are too many Alli owners around.

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      4 months, 25 days ago

      lol

    2. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      Surely Son takes it with the form he is in

      1. Amey
        4 months, 25 days ago

        And Kane claims it afterwards 😉

  24. Big_Andy_GAWA
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 25 days ago

    Llorente hatty with Erik-SON-SON-SON and Son assys. Dunk with a consolation goal.

    Craig Cathcart and Bedernek goals in a 1-1 draw in the other game.

    Thank you please.

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      4 months, 25 days ago

      if Bednarek scores then I'll smash an Easter egg into my face to celebrate.

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 25 days ago

        Hahaha! I'll purposely run across the street to my local Co-op and buy one and do the very same 😀

      2. Amey
        4 months, 25 days ago

        If Yoshida is the assister I'd bring those eggs for you 🙂

      3. Jonny HOW SON?
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 25 days ago

        record that lol

    2. Dakes.
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      Id just love if all my players score a goal and Son gets 3. Lloris and Foster pen saves

  25. BobbyDoesNotLook
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 25 days ago

    If no injuries occur I think I am quite settled for the rest of the season. Probably Duffy or gk upgrade with 0.8itb.

    Foster Ryan
    Robbo Taa Doherty Duffy Valery
    Mane Sterling Son Eriksen Deulofeu
    Aguero Jimmy Llorente

    1. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      Reckon Llorente gets a start against West Ham? Or will you be benching him?

      1. Eddie`
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 25 days ago

        I think he'll start. Likely Eriksen, Alli and or Moura rested.

      2. BobbyDoesNotLook
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 25 days ago

        Dont really know but I like Deulofeu so potential 3-5-2 till the end

  26. Skull And Gnomes 9
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 25 days ago

    Janmaat @28/1 first or last goal.

    Anytime @9/1._Gets forward a bit does he not?

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      There's a good reason for those odd's 😆

      1. Skull And Gnomes 9
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 25 days ago

        He's no Virg, but I'm 'aving a pop. 🙂

    2. Danno - Emre Canada
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      Scores a goal every 10-12 games roughly so anytime is a bit short but tonight could be his night.........

      1. Skull And Gnomes 9
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 25 days ago

        C'monnn!

      2. Eddie`
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 25 days ago

        Don't see it being a high scoring game. I'd prefer 1st or last odds.

        Of course, I wouldn't bet on this.

  27. Hernandez Lynam
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 25 days ago

    Dream outcome tonight

    Watford (Masina) 1 - 1 (Ward-Prowse) Southampton
    Spurs (Trippier, Eriksen, Son) 3 - 0 Brighton

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      ok

    2. jdp219
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 25 days ago

      Could get on board with the first one, but I would appreciate a 0-0 draw in Spurs-BHA (however unlikely it may be).

  28. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years

    Anyone topped a Valery song by doing an amusing take on Abba's 'Fernando'?

    1. Marvin.com
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Either that's a no or somebody's typing out the entire lyrics as we speak.

  29. Dakes.
