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.

      Same! I will also take clean sheets for Eriksen and Son too.

      Bonus points for Ryan, Duffy, Trippier.

    Why do Spurs keep putting aerial balls into the box

    They ain’t going to win many balls against Dunk and Duffy

      Dunk and Duffy are prone to mistakes

    Not sure who I discussed this with. But someone said that Brighton would be a walk over. Said they were gonna park the bus, and go back to what they do best: Defend aka parking the bus. I think this will be Brightons way of securing survival.

          Weren't you saying it sucked to have double Brighton defence and how you were contemplating doing Ryan to Gunn for a hit?

        Brighton would've signed Kevin Davies if they had the chance to

          Amount of balls spurs are putting in I bet they wish they had Kevin Davies

          Valery really has been a bad transfer 🙁

            Getting sick and no word from the manager, or getting sick after the presser is bad luck, not a bad transfer.

            • 2 Years
            3 months, 2 hours ago

            Yeah. Can't really help him suddenly falling ill though, I guess. Just bad luck.

            What were you hoping for from a player who has 6+ points only 5 times this season?

            I can't believe I'm even watching this.

            Llorente will be subbed and Son moved to the middle. Horrible

              Who will come on though? Skipp? Only real attacking option on the bench is Janssen.

                Huddlestone

                You seem to including Llorente as an attacking option

          • I hate Moreno
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 2 hours ago

            Taking a hit to remove a Brighton defender for a player who hasn't played a minute is gonna effectively be a -16 minimum

            Spurs will get a last minute goal. I feel it.

              They were trying to score. Then that failed so they reverted to bus parking in desperation.

            Brighton taking a bashing from the bottom sides and keeping clean sheets from the top sides...how crazy is PL football??

              How are Brighton going to keep clean sheets v Wolves & Spurs, but concede a combined 7 goals v Bournemouth & Cardiff?

              Plenty sold their defensive assets (some for hits!) for DGW35.

              One of the greatest trollings in FPL.
