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

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

      4. Would Ed Woodward

          6 + Valery.

        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
            2 months, 28 days ago

            Shame Wilson missed about 17 sitters.

            And did you have to pay that fine
            You were dodging all the time, are you still dizzy?

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

                                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).

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

                              Will be popular regardless.

                              Eriksen & Ings > Bavel & Firmino for me.

                            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.

                                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.

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

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

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

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

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

                                    Janmaat @28/1 first or last goal.

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

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

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

                                        Of course, I wouldn't bet on this.

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