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.

    JWP better do something tonight

      as a right back?

        Exactly. It's all Valery's fault. He ruined two spots in my team.

    2. I hate Moreno

      JWP and Gray over Long and Deulofeu for nailedness

    Fastest ever premier league goal. Or so says my app.

    1. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Yep. Beats Ledley King's goal for Spurs.

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        Now there was a player - retired before his prime.

          He never had a chance because of injuries. Dude literally didn't train at all because he was such a crock but was good enough to still play the games.

          1. Old Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            5 months, 28 days ago

            He would have been one of England's best ever central defenders. Real shame.

    2. Danno - Emre Canada
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Yep confirmed, should get bonus points for it

    3. King Carlos
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      How many secs? 7?

  3. Nigel Knows
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 28 days ago

    8 (eight) seconds to score

    Quickest Premier Goal ever!

  4. JuulKrapuul

    Deeney to Long bet works out, nice!

  5. ZICO SENNA
    • 8 Years

    Thank you Masina and Valery, worst transfers ever!

    1. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Valery 1pt cameo would be sweet today.

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        It would 🙂

    2. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Valery still has 3 good fixtures on paper ahead. Just unlucky a bit with him being under the weather.

      Masina?!? on the other hand ?!?!?

        That's great, but I also have Robbo, TAA, Laporte and Doherty.

        I was only going to play him this GW.

  6. Rainer

    90+3 and 8 seconds.

    Watford defenders...

  7. Team Cruel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Watford lost me four clean sheets in the space of 15 consecutive seconds this GW

    1. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      I'm loving it as a non-Watford defence owner.

      1. FPL DONKEY
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 28 days ago

        Same here. My ML rivals have Watford defence, I decided to steer clear. They have not kept a clean sheet for a good long time.

  8. Wild Rover
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    I can’t claim anything for the fastest Prem goal ever other than that I took a hit to get the keeper who conceded it. Il settle for that 🙂

  9. Eddie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Time to panic Watford. Bring on Success!

  10. Fpl Cursed
    • 3 Years

    Never get Foster in for a DGW. Under-performed in the last one as well.

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Now you tell me..

  11. Ha.
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Foster penalty save please

    1. RFCSPACE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Yes please

    2. SM001
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Dream on

    3. RFCSPACE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Preferably Valery coming on and missing it 🙂

    4. Deus
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Two

  12. RFCSPACE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    A Brighton clean sheet tonight would be infuriating.

  13. diesel001
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Son playing wide on the left today. Moura wide on the right. Alli and Llorente are the two who are spending most time in the opposition penalty area. Eriksen sitting a bit deeper.

  14. Nigel Knows
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 28 days ago

    I like Wanyama. Pretty rubbish FPL asset in general but important to his team.

    1. Lord Tachanka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      He’s a decent pick in the past as a £5m enabler.

      Usually popular with casuals in a Kanté type way.

  15. Lord Tachanka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Long first on bench

    Mendy in squad

    Pep is going to play him for sure right?

    1. RFCSPACE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Oh for sure. I've got him too and no doubt my first bench player will go crazy tonight too

    2. Jacky boy
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      doubt he is fit

  16. Differentiator
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Brought in Foster and Cathcart for a -8

    1. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Ouch

  17. Chucky
    • 5 Years

    Alli ruining eriksen assist....

  18. Baked baines
    • 4 Years

    Southampton have the quickest goal and Hat-trick in premier league history!

    1. GanonTEK
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      That was Mane who got the hattrick wasn't it?

      1. Baked baines
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        Correct

    3. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Ha ha awful defending

      I counted 7 Mississippi’s.

      Who was that Watford defender and why not pass back to Foster.

      Wait I saw Aubameyangs goal v Watford!!! That’s why!

  20. Syd.
    • 10 Years

    Odds on that Ryan gets a YC

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Heaton / 10

    2. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Depends on how long it takes for Spurs to score

  21. Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    If Brighton keep Son/Eriksen out man....

  22. F_Ivanovic

    FPL website doesn’t appear to be acknowledging points?

    1. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Yeah.. Broken somehow

    2. Irbox ⚽

      Broken

    3. Nigel Knows

      6.8 seconds broke it

    4. Lord Tachanka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Long scored in 3 straight GWs

      FPL can’t handle that as not logical

  24. Garlana
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Game is sooo brutal ..I made a very poor decision between gray+yoshida instead of long+taa...wow this stings a lot.

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Oof, that's a bad one.

    2. Giggs Boson.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      You were actually considering Long? 😕

      Oh, come on, he doesn't even start games!

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        5 months, 28 days ago

        I considered him too to be fair but I couldn't use the extra cash to upgrade my defence to anyone decent.

      2. Garlana
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        Yeh more of an enabler, was hopeful of some minutes but was put off mainly by the doubt of starts.

  25. Lord Tachanka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    Did long break FPL site

    1. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Yes. Chap on night shift at fpl towers had Foster and Cathcart double up and went ballistic and smashed up all the tech.

    Brighton attacking set piece. Danger for Spurs.

    1. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Brighton corner.

      1. diesel001

        Poor corner.

  28. Syd.

  29. Wild Rover

    • 9 Years

    How funny would it be if FPL crashed and actually lost all of its data permanently? I’d lol, I bet plenty wouldn’t 😀

    1. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      I would find it funny. it is only a game.

      Yes and we each were able to manually enter our teams for past weeks to fix it. I’d be on 2500 points

      A couple of years ago they deleted my son's team. He'd been playing for years (admittedly I had been "helping" him for the first few). Anyway, they decided that kids now needed parent's permission to play, but because he'd registered so long ago, they'd never asked for a parent's email address. And hence without emailing either him or me, his team disappeared at the end of the season. Proud track record of 4 top 100K finishes gone.
