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.

    Who’d have thought choosing correctly between:

    A) Deeney -> Gray, keep Dunk
    B) Deeney -> Wilson & Yoshida -4

    Would be worth +/- 17 points

    1. Would Ed Woodward
        6 months, 1 day ago

        Yep, I made the wrong move, gutting considering the chances Wilson had too.

          I dontt often get it right but I did post a fair bit about the merits of Option A

          It’s so harsh though - there is no where near 17 difference in the expected points of those options

          I took an 8 to get Wilson in and took Duffy out for Bednarek - I haven't quite fathomed why I did

    2. Manani

      who would have thought going for Firmino instead of Gray would be the wrong choice lol

      Trippier on max Baps? What did he do? Hopefully got dispossessed a few times.

      Folk keeping Eriksen for WHU, then? It'll be a different type of game and Eriksen ought to do well. He'll start the game, IMO.

        Nah, likely out for a Salah-Mané double-up.

          • 8 Years

          I'm thinking of doing Wilson and Frazer to DCL and Salah (TC) for -4.

      With Duffy Eriksen Lloris Son(c), should I be happy-ish with that Eriksen goal despite Son blank?

      Probably? Many have double Brighton defence I suppose.

      1. Super Saints
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 1 day ago

        Definitely

        I got treble and have eriksen clean sheet for brighton would have been better i think

      3. Mo Mané Mo Problems
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 1 day ago

        Obviously.

    12. Mo Mané Mo Problems
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 1 day ago

      Think I should avoid this place for a bit.

      Already getting triggered with these “benches” with TAA,
      Mane and Salah on them

      1. azz007
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 1 day ago

        That's not a planned bench. That's a gloating bench. Ie anyone could be on bench of non captain.

        Siggy. Digne. Delafo. Peres

      2. Zladan
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 1 day ago

        I picked my bench to be the most realistic as possible. Meaning fielding SGW TAA & Mane whilst benching Duffy & Valery.

        (Redmond v Wilson was my attacking decision and benched Wilson).

        It's the only true indication of the chip's value.

        1. Mo Mané Mo Problems
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 1 day ago

          Exactly. This is correct.

        2. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 1 day ago

          Eh? Duffy scored more than VVD, so what point are you making exactly?

          You'd probably get a 50/50 split if you canvassed people ahead of the DGW whether to start Valery or TAA.

          1. Zladan
            • 2 Years
            6 months, 1 day ago

            Your bench should consist of players you predict to score the least (obviously it doesn't always turn out that way).

            VVD v Car would clearly be in everyone's starting XI instead of Duffy v Wol&Tot (particularly after he conceded 7 v Bou & Car).

            TAA over Valery because Valery was flagged also.

            My bench picked itself tbh.

      3. Twisted Saltergater

      Eriksen, Gray & Lloris. What a week of 2 halves.

        lloris, vert, gray, double brighton nearly paying off again

        6 months, 1 day ago

        Nice.
        Is it a realistic bench though?
        i.e the 4 “weakest” players this week

        1. azz007
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 1 day ago

          I highly. Doubt its weakest bench

        2. BEEZUS
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 1 day ago

          Is my weakest bench. Ryan Duffy Gray and Valery. Didnt want to play a strong bench as genuinely wanted to see how I would do

      2. Teahupo'o

      Bednarek, Lloris, Dunk and Docoure on bench. Not great not bad..

    22. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 1 day ago

      So to avoid wasting a spot on hapless Gray, I chose Firmino as a differential for a -4, which also involved getting KDB (couldn't afford Sterling then). Seemed clever at the time....
