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.

    Anyone else not seeing any points added in the points view of FPL?

    Got Eriksen, Trippier and Ryan in play...no extra points.

    Tried logging in/out...no dice 😐

      FPL website isn't working at the moment.

    FPL really need to address their website. Shockingly poor

      I've always found it to be pretty good, nice design too.

        Factor in 6+ million users they will be using some serious technology - like you, I think it's fine.

          Yeah it's pretty damn good for a free game. I know paid for services with less users with much worse experiences.

          Aside from it constantly crashing and taking longer than over to update points? Better servers required

            Chill mate it's a free game, I think they do a great job.

                Yeah, unfortunately so. I'm not one of these people that expects all this great stuff for free. I run software programs as well for free and it always annoys me what people demand for nothing these days, even with the cheek to complain.

            I certainly have the site constantly crashing. Are you using mobile or desktop/notepad? What browser are you using? As for servers, if you have a peak of potentially millions of concurrent connections then they would already be using some beefy kit.

              Woah! I certainly DON'T have the site constantly crashing. Bad typo - sorry.

              Yeah I've never had it constantly crash. Sometimes it's slow to update but with 6m+ users it's hardly a surprise.

          It's built in python/Django

          You can sometimes see the unstyled yellow/grey CSRF unstyled error page 😎 (I'm a Django developer myself).

          I'd imagine they're on AWS, and the scaling/database-sharding/caching must be something to behold to support the traffic it does!

    Doing Ryan -> Foster for a hit must be one of the worst decisions of the week.

    Would have been 6 points better off already, plus save points tonight at least...

    1. Eytexi
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I did Boruc to Foster for a hit and benched Ryan.

      Due to Deeney's red i went Sterling triple captain, leaving Ryan (9), Jonny (6) & Chilwell (4) on my bench.

      I did Ryan and Duffy to Gunn and Schar for a -4, I never take hits but was convinced Brighton we're gonna get hammered in both games. Lesson learned.

    The FPL website literally has 'brought to you by EA' plastered all over its home page.

    I don't understand why people get surprised when the servers keep going down

    Anyone watching spurs want to tell me why Danny Rose came flying to bail out the brighton guy trapped in the corner by giving him a goal kick?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Probably to try and get a defection. Also, to tell them what's gonna happen if they keep trying to time-waste.

      1. Says
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        All the guy had to do was step aside and let Rose fly out of play along with the ball.

        > Also, to tell them what's gonna happen if they keep trying to time-waste.

        ... that they'll give them goal kicks?

            I have, I just never understand why tackles that bail out players trapped near their own goal by giving a set piece are applauded.
