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.

    38 points from my bench boost is a huge plus. The huge minus is that my starting XI have been absolutely woeful!

      Who is your bench?

    2. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      You put Deulo, Ryan, Duffy and Vardy on the bench? That's wankery

        Ryan Duffy Gray and Vert! Was the genuine subs I would have had since I thought Valery and Redmond would have done so much more than they did.

    3. Root
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Ryan 12, Redmond 4, Valery 1, Duffy 8

      That's 25 points

      1. Root
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        IMO. Gray and Vert should be counted as starters for you.

          I would have started Redmond over Gray due to assurance of starts, and Kola over Vert due to two cracks at attacking returns!

    this season is depressing.

    1. ZICO SENNA

      Definitely

  7. Fpl Cursed

    Season saved! Jumped from 17k to 12k in a matter of minutes!

    Spurs very lucky. Needing long shots to win games against 'park the bus' teams is not going to serve you well in the long run.

    1. Van der Faart
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      With Winks, Sissoko, and Kane out I'll take the 3 points

    Useless Watford and Soton 4 players: Cathcart, Bednerek, Doucoure, JWP 🙁

    Wow 20 points lost in the last few minutes of those two games. Brutal.

    1. gooberman

      There are many devastating things that can hurt in FPL, i.e Captain being benched or missing a penalty, players getting sent off etc but during the many years I've been playing this game, I've always found that lost clean sheets right at the end of games is the most crushing blow, heightened further when you have a defensive double up. To lose 4! clean sheets together with the bonus points the players were on course for is just a sick joke. It's utterly obscene. I think a lot of us are in the same boat.

  15. Hazz

    Cue the Sterling brace tomorrow that will bury me

  16. Scotty B
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Lost about 14 points in the last 5 minutes there...I give up!

  17. Super Saints
    • 3 Years

    Negative football from Brighton got what they deserved. Not good enough for a premier league team

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Looks like they'll survive though.
      I don't like that team at all

        Not if Cardiff can get a couple results

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Did the right thing vs the CL semi finalist.

      Do you want them to go toe-to-toe and lose 4-0?

      1. Do I Not Like Orange
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Would have loved it.

        • 2 Years

  22. sandman58
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Surely with a winning goal Reiksen gets bonus points??

    1. sandman58
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Eriksen

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      He might get 1 - the booking was expensive.
