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.

    There's no time for resting players at this stage of the season. I think Spurs will start Eriksen and Son against West Ham.

      Amen for that!

      Poch always takes the next game as the most important. Only after it does he think about the one after. Full strength again on Saturday

    16 point BB ; Foster Hojberg Valery Bennett. Got 24 last year..

    On the upside I saved 0.5m which allows me to do KdB>Mane for Friday.

    Had to chose between

    1. Murray -> Gray (gw35)
    Eriksen > Salah (TC36)

    2. Murray -> Firmino (gw35)
    Eriksen -> Mane (TC36)

    Feel like this is gonna burn badly! Yes I chose option 2 🙁

      I’m not 100% sure on this but I think it’s not been adjusted yet for his winning goal. Hopefully someone on here can clarify.

  7. Scotty B

    Any chance of a Jimenez 13 pointer tomorrow?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

  8. XabiAlonso

    Who's got the highest genuine bench boost. Not bench wankery.

    1. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      My bench woul've been Ryan (played Foster), Wilson, Valery and Yoshi. 21pts

      Would've been p%ss poor without Ryan!

    87 with Sterling C, Aguero, Laporte, Doherty, Jota & Jimmy to play, need a huge result tomorrow 🙂

    1. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      74 here with Jota(c),Jimenez,Doherty,Aguero,Lacazette left.

      Badly Need a Sterling no show or blank. ML leader has Sterling (TC) so any hail could mean curtains for the league.
      His lead is down to 21 now from 110 3 weeks ago.

      1. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
        • 2 Years

        I'm in that ball park

    2. TheDragon

      The bragging isn’t even subtle!

    3. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      95 with Doherty Laporte Sterling Kun Jimenez(c) left to play

    4. Teahupo'o
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      94. Laporte Doherty Sterling Jota Aguero Jimenez(C) Lacazette to go.

  10. Chucky
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 18 days ago

    Only Jimmy capo hattie can save my GW now...

  11. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 18 days ago

    Need Jimenez to get at least 8 points tomorrow now to warrant the hit taking Vardy out.

    Goal and 2 BAPs does the job 🙂

    1. Daniel - KTBFFH
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      If he is not your captain you don't want pts

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Really?

        1. FPL DONKEY
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 18 days ago

          Yes, 110% effective ownership

          1. FPL DONKEY
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 18 days ago

            So every Jimi point decreases your OR, might help in your ML though. Depends on your priorities...

          2. F_Ivanovic
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 18 days ago

            In the top 10k... if you're not in the top 10k then it's a decent chance that it is a little lower than 100%.

    2. Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Exactly this

  12. Salt'N'Pepe
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 18 days ago

    Hopefully Sterling benched tomorrow

    1. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Yes, hopefully taken off on 80 mins for a rest on the bench after a hattrick

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Ehhh no

      2. Amey
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Would be great

    2. tm370
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Im sure they will bench their best player in the toughest game they have left...

    3. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Absolutely zero chance

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Yep
        Chasing title & Manchester Derby !!

  13. Super Saints
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 18 days ago

    That Gray goal could cost me my ML league and moneyyyyyy

    1. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      So annoying that isn’t it, i hate Gray

    2. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Should’ve got Gray then

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Sorry bro 🙁
      It cost me Yoshida CS too

    4. Daniel - KTBFFH
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Sorry mate to hear that. On the opposite did wonders for me. It's FPL after all, nothing is over until the last whistle

  14. Daniel - KTBFFH
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 18 days ago

    Early thoughts next week. Can I save it lads or no Salah is dangerous?

    Ryan
    Laporte Robertson Doherty
    Redmond Son Eriksen Stering Mane
    Kun Jimmy

    Bench: Gray, Duffy, Johhny

    0.1 ITB.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks,

    1. FPL DONKEY
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 18 days ago

      No Salah is not dangerous. He's not that highly owned.

      1. Daniel - KTBFFH
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        what if I want to climb the rankings?

  15. Amey
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 18 days ago

    Deulofeu is the sole reason for my BB to be good.
    Got 26 points from:

    Foster Deulofeu Yoshida Valery

    Pretty happy with it

    1. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Well done.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Cheers mate 🙂
        Hope it's going great for you.

        1. The 12th Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 18 days ago

          Look up.My situation all hinges on Sterling blanking and Jota doing the business.

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 18 days ago

            😀
            I have Raz ©. Only one of us will be happy then.

            1. The 12th Man
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              7 months, 18 days ago

              As long as Jota matches him and I can stay with in 20-30 then get lucky with Salah(c) next week , could still manage it.

              I’ll be hiding behind a sofa though.

              1. Amey
                • 1 Year
                7 months, 18 days ago

                Ha ha
                GL 🙂
                Jimenez Jota Doherty Aguero & Raz © for me. (Got broken KDB too 😛 )

                1. The 12th Man
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 6 Years
                  7 months, 18 days ago

                  If Doherty gets a goal, there’s another differential for me. Plus Lacazette. Those two up gains that Pogba and Rashford plus Neves

                  1. Amey
                    • 1 Year
                    7 months, 18 days ago

                    Yeah. But he's not that attacking Force anymore i guess. Hopefully Jota does the job for us 😉

    2. Daniel - KTBFFH
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Yeah, the debate Redmond or he went bad for me at the end however you can't win them all I had him on the Free Hit and he didn't deliver. Something you win something you loose

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Absolutely.
        Flag didn't help either

    3. IRBOX ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Nice. 28 here with Lloris, Gray, Yoshida, Duffy. Anything over 25 is a huge success!

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year

        That's excellent mate !
        I sold Duffy & Eriksen so bit annoyed 😕

  16. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 18 days ago

    If Sterling gets a rest tmr Son(c) won’t hurt so much.

    Would take respectable points from Jimenez and Aguero, and a Pogba goal and assist.

    Can always hope

    1. Bouncebackability
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Your best player rested in the most important game?

    2. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years

      Sorry but Sterling is playing

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Yeah he will. A blank more likely to hope for then

  17. Paul 'The Party Animal…
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 18 days ago

    Who wins this H2H?

    A) 36 points + Jimenez + Jota + Boly

    B) Kun (c) + Sterling + Laca + Kolasinac + Ederson

    1. DR0GBA
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      A as long as City don't score 5+

    2. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 4 Years

      I don't care

        Probably good to start for another few weeks!

    No bonus for Erikson???

    United to go against all odds and deliver on their “apologies”, with a narrow win in a low scoring game. Bet.

    Would actually take 0-0 though too

      That game can be anything but 0-0 😉

    Eriksen and Kun out Salah and Zaha in for a hit?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      I'd wanna keep Eriksen, any other way?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Aguero too actually!

        1. Daniel - KTBFFH
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 18 days ago

          Oh my, now confused. I am scared from Salah explosion and I think Zaha will deliver till the end. He is playing for a transfer

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 18 days ago

            Yeah Palace fixtures do look tasty.
            Tough one without seeing the rest of your team

    Any ideas for next gameweek please?

    Ryan
    TAA | Doherty | Bednarek
    Salah | Mane | Hazard | Moura | Fraser
    Aguero | Jimenez

    Boruc | King | Dunk | Peltier

    Shouldn’t Eriksen get winning goal BAPS?

    1. Would Ed Woodward

        Was booked and had a terrible game before the goal.

        Might be enough for 1 bap

      I like ragabolly’s website cos it lets me know that I’m still on a green arrow despite all these bragging with high scores...

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Sorry 🙂
        I'm not bragging, after Sane TC & relatively failed FH, I'm just happy that at least BB worked 🙂

      Picking Redmond went just as predicted. Blank and blank. Just like Walcott and Barkley earlier this season. People never learn.

      Am I allowed to be provoced? ML rival getting almost the same points from one player (Gray) as I get from 9 players (Riks1, Duffy, Dunk, Valery, Cathcart, Son, Llorente, Foster)

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 18 days ago

        That's pathetic Luck.
        Sorry mate !

        Rival Gray 7pt goal

        Me Gunn 6pt CS + baps gone

        13pt swing and only about 28 ahead

      Laca Capttaineers will be the real winners tomorrow.

      Current LFC dilemma: I own Mane & TAA and would like to triple up. Not keen on breaking up front 3 (Aguero Jimmy Wilson) for rotatable Bobby.

      1: KDB & Son to Salah & £5.8m?
      2: KDB & Eriksen to Salah & £6.4m?
      3: KDB & Trippier to Robbo/VVD & £9.6/8m?
      4: KDB & Duffy to Robbo/VVD & £8.3/5m?

      Salah would likely become TC.

      1. Daniel - KTBFFH
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        I would go the Salah option

        1. Zladan
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 18 days ago

          At the expense of Son or Eriksen?

    7. Pinball Wizard
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Any chance of Eriksen getting a bps?
