Son dismissal forces owners into Gameweek 38 midfield transfer

Bournemouth 1-0 Tottenham

Goals: Nathan Ake (£5.1m)

Assists: Ryan Fraser (£6.3m)

Red Cards: Son Heung-min (£8.8m), Juan Foyth (£5.,0m)

Bonus: Fraser x3, Aké x2, Steve Cook (£4.3m)

The early kick-off saw a dramatic encounter in which Bournemouth ended a run of five home matches without a win whilst inflicting a sixth straight away defeat on nine-man Tottenham.

Nathan Aké (£5.1m) nodded in the last gasp winner supplied inevitably by Ryan Fraser (£6.3m) meaning that Tottenham must now wait until Gameweek 38 to secure their top-four status.

Following an impressive start, Spurs were reduced to nine men thanks to the dismissals of Son Heung-min (£8.8m) and Juan Foyth (£5.0m) either side of half time.

Son’s season ended in the 43rd minute when he was sent off for a violent push on Jefferson Lerma (£4.5m).

Whilst uncharacteristic from Son it will no doubt have riled his 22% ownership that kept patience with the South Korean in spite of just two attacking returns in his last 10 league matches.

It will also cause shockwaves amongst the top 10k as he is currently the fourth most popular player within this group. Prior to this Son had rarely impacted the game having just a solitary attempt off target following a trademark dribble.

Whilst Eric Dier (£4.7m) arguably should also have seen red, Foyth was not so lucky getting his marching orders for a lunge on Jack Simpson (£3.9m). Foyth may only be owned by 0.2% of managers so his negative score was not felt by many, but it certainly nullified Tottenham’s attacking threat for the rest of the match and it was only a question of when Bournemouth could find the breakthrough rather than if.

“I think everyone saw what happened. Everyone can have an opinion. It was on live, 12.30. I think I don’t need to explain too much. I think everyone saw on TV and in the stadium here what happened. That is football. It’s impossible to manage everything. That is cruel because I think after fighting for all the second half with nine players, conceding the goal in the last minute is always cruel but that is football. They are the circumstances that we must accept and we need to move on because now it’s wasting time in analysing too much because we have ahead two games, the semi-final against Ajax and at the weekend against Everton, two finals that depend on us. The most important thing now is to move on.” – Mauricio Pochettino

Spurs made three changes from the team defeated by Ajax. Moussa Sissoko (£4.9m), Dier and Son came in for Jan Vertonghen (£5.9m), Victor Wanyama (£4.9m) and Fernando Llorente (£5.1m).

In his post-match press conference, Pochettino had a positive update on Vertoghen when asked on his availability for Wednesday.

“We’ll see, we hope yes. He was training well yesterday, I think he can be available.” – Mauricio Pochettino

There was one huge surprise in the Bournemouth team sheet with teenage goalkeeper Mark Travers given the nod over Asmir Begovic (£4.3m) and Artur Boruc (£4.1m), the latter named on the bench. It was a move so unexpected he is not even registered on FPL. Prior to the match, Howe expressed his confidence in the teenager and he was full of praise for him after full-time.

“We rate Mark very highly. He has great character, great attitude and huge potential. This is a chance for him to show what he can do.” – Eddie Howe

“It was a great display from (Travers), he’s someone we really do believe in. He’s got great temperament and attitude to the game. He played like it was a training session and that’s a huge compliment. He showed real confidence with his feet. He kicked the ball well, made some saves and impressed with his all-round game management. It’s a nice problem to have and a decision I’ll have to make in the summer, in terms of what to do with all the goalkeepers we have. Mark hasn’t been out on loan this season. Aaron Ramsdale, who we rate highly as well, has been out on loan and done really well. It’s great to have two young, promising goalkeepers in our ranks, and of course we’ve got the two experienced goalkeepers at a top level as well. It’s slightly unusual that Mark hasn’t been out on loan to experience League One or League Two. That was the risk we took, but going on his training and the way he has conducted himself all season, as well as the club that we are – trying to give young players opportunities to develop – we decided to do what we did.” – Eddie Howe

Travers had a debut to remember although it may have been different had Lucas Moura’s (£6.8m) effort from inside his own half landed the other side of the post. The Brazilian, who lined up through the middle looked lively and was twice denied smartly by Travers in an action-packed first half. One of these efforts was deemed a big chance. Moura had three further shots and created one opportunity for his team-mates.

Travers also spectacularly denied Deli Alli (£8.8m) twice and made a more routine save to thwart Christian Eriksen (£9.2m). The Dane has now started 19 consecutive matches in all competitions and avoided rotation once again. However, he wasn’t at his most effective creating only a single chance and registering a single tame effort on target. Tottenham’s ill-discipline probably didn’t help his cause especially given they played half the match with just nine players.

Tottenham did put up a resilient defensive display and owners of Hugo Lloris (£5.4m), Danny Rose (£5.8m), Davinson Sánchez (£5.8m) and Kieran Trippier (£6.0m) will be disappointed that they didn’t manage to cling on to their fourteenth shutout of the campaign. Lloris did console owners with a save point having denied the Cherries on five occasions.

When the goal did finally arrive there was no surprise that is was assisted by Fraser. Coming into this match Fraser had created more big chances (six) than any player in the last six Gameweeks and he was again at his very best against Spurs creating nine chances, three of which were deemed big by Opta. This now takes him to the summit of the assist leader board with 14, equalled only by Raheem Sterling (£11.6m).

Goal-scorer Aké was utilised out of position partnering Lerma at the heart of Bournemouth’s midfield. It was the Dutchman’s fourth strike of the season, a tally bettered amongst defenders by only Shane Duffy (£4.7m).

It was a frustrating afternoon for Callum Wilson (£6.8m) owners as he failed to score and perhaps should have earned a penalty for his team. The England international has now gone four home matches without scoring a trend highlighted earlier in the week by Fantasy Football Scout. He was lively throughout registering six attempts although none of the aforementioned were on target. He was also upended in the box by Dier which probably should have resulted in a spot-kick Bournemouth.

Josh King (£6.4m), who started left midfield could have also earned a penalty when he collided with Lloris when through on goal.

Bournemouth XI (4-4-1-1): Travers; Clyne, Cook, Simpson, Smith; King, Lerma, Ake, Fraser; Ibe (Mousset 76); Wilson

Tottenham XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Trippier, Alderweireld (Foyth 46), Sanchez, Rose; Dier (Wanyama 46), Sissoko (Davies 82); Eriksen, Alli, Son; Moura.

    Scraping into top 10k with 32 wrong captain's so far, what could have been!

  2. semiconductor

    I'm using my FH. Who would you get with the 38 fixtures?

    Laporte-Robertson-Shaw (valery)
    Any better options in defence?

    If salah is fit it will be
    Salah-sterling-mane and really can't find a good 4th mid. Unless Pogba does well

    Aguero is in my team anyway. Who the other 2 you would go for?

    1. Slitherene
      • 1 Year

      Zaha & Rondon

      1. semiconductor
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        I was really thinking of Newcastle striker. Zaha would be good at home?

    2. Royal5

      Eden Moura Redmond

      1. semiconductor

        Eden and moura tough fixtures I guess. Redmond can be benched?

      Depends what you want to do, protect or have a go. You’ve probably picked 6/7/8 that’s going to be in the majority of teams. And on the face of it, looks the right fit. 38 is a week where you can go with punts. Lanzini was a good one for me last season.

      Would look at Mitrovic, Arnie, a utd attacker is probably a must with Cardiff’s defending today, look tomorrow for some ideas

      1. semiconductor
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        I'm behind just about few points. Less than 10

      2. semiconductor
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Can punt on triple city attack and double man Utd defence + Rashford for example. My mid would be 2 city+ 2 liverpool

        1. McEwan
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Something like that should give you a decent shot. Sat should give you a better indication of what teams are likely to do, picking 2 utd defenders comes with a high risk despite the fixtures, tomorrow will hopefully shed some light on how they are looking. Tough to look beyond the obvious picks but 38 is the gw to try find them as your not bothered about having to move them after. A wildcard or free hit would be decent at this stage, stuck with the wrong chip here

        Digne, Redmond, Zaha?

          Son to Milivojevic?

          Ederson
          Robertson Luiz TAA
          Salah Sterling Pogba Mili Jwp

              Probably a sensible move. I don't back Spurs, so maybe Siggy if funds allow.

            Are Southampton assets too risky to get next week? Manager might have decided to give yesterday's team two opportunities regardless of their failure against West Ham?
            Crystal Palace or Man U might be better?

                        It's not to do with the fact they're transferring out Son. It's to do with the fact they're transferring someone in early in the last week of the season when team value doesn't matter.

                Which team do you think wins?

                a) 13 + Ryan + Sterling + Rashford
                b) 10 + Ryan + Laporte + Aguero
                c) 7 + Laporte + Sterling(c)
                d) Ryan + Kolasinac + Laporte + Sterling + Aguero

                  Close between b and c

                    1 month, 22 days ago

                    I guess it really comes down to Sterling vs Aguero vs Rashford.

                      Yeah that’s it.
                      Tough to call.
                      Maybe Aguero > Sterling > Rashford in that order this week.
                      But who knows considering how things have been going so far

                          think i counted sterling 7 laporte 4. think brighton are in trouble although 2 points probably more likely than 1 to be fair

                            Laporte with the Sterling assist.
                            Don't expect much from Ryan now they are safe.

                                i have ederson, laporte, sterling and vardy left to play. would like liverpool to win the title so if vardy scores i dont mind. relatively well covered for all results on monday

                          B) or C), close though... Maybe leaning B) due to Aguero's reliable home form

                          I want A to win it as with the least City coverage, it’s hopefully going to mean they have kept the score down. It gives me a sore head, every time I think I have a clear answer, check and thing, oh but then they only would need this to happen

                            Yeah, anyones to win.

                            When it gets to

                            a) ........ + Sterling

                            d) ........ + Laporte + Sterling + Aguero

                            a) will want a bit of space, i.e. Rashford haul.

                                he's been really unlucky the past few weeks. funny to think he couldn't get into the team for ages

                                  Needed to fine his feet to begin with. Seems settled enough now 🙂
                                  Could be one of the first names in my team next season

                                  Not funny at all, he wasn't playing well. Took him till halfway through the season to start to find his feet in the PL.

                                    He sucked as a wide man in a 343. The 352 completely revolutionised his effectiveness. He thrives as a forward, but still needs to improve his finishing!

                                    Any chance Rashford or Pogba sit out the next game? My rival has brought both in for a hit and has Son's -2 points perched on his bench.

                                  The main reason I have had an awful season is because I have not been able to hear from Mark every week on the scoutcast.

                                    A rank over 500K can't be blamed on Mark.

                                  how likely am I going to crack top 10k by the end of season?

                                            first name on my team sheet next season I reckon if he's 11.0.

                                              Could be 11.5 due to consistency.

                                                Dont see how he is lower than 12m if that Donk Kane is consistently 12.5

                                                  Agree, Sterling should rise.
                                                  Kane could do with a drop.

                                          16 points (and that's with Trent) is pretty rough but I do have hope with 5 to play!
                                          Saved FT trying to be sensible and hold onto a top 10k position has backfired somewhat, as Son to Hazard was on my mind.
                                          Been in the top 10k since GW27 so it would be a shame to not finish there after a long hard season.
                                          How's your GW going?

                                                      ML leader has 70 points on me. Currently sitting on 6 points this GW.

                                                      Ederson + Bilva + Walker + Kola + Rashford and Redmond first on bench for Firmino (c). Robbo is vc. Fraser second on bench if Rashford flag holds (and I’m obviously hoping he plays). .

                                                      vs.

                                                      Hazard (TC) + Bilva + Sterling + Pogba (Rondon first on bench in case Pogba truly doesn’t play and, needless to say, I am hoping he doesn’t.)

                                                        Anything is possible with the TC.

                                                        Casuals get lucky? Aren't you missing key players more the reason for rank drops?

                                                        Also announcing rank with 3 City and Hazard TC amongst others a but disingenuous plus ignores 7pts on bench you'll get for autos

                                                      I think I’m going to try to convince my wife (Serie A fan, can’t stand EPL) to go in with me next year as a control experiment 😀

                                                      Which one?

                                                      I know it’s early doors yet, but I’m 2.5 hours away from landing in London and am bored. Any thoughts on how to improve this lot for GW38?

                                                        Play Coleman for a start.

                                                          Yeah. Either Jimi or Wilson are of no use to me. Think I’ll bench both and play Rondon, as well, even though that’s just a recipe for his blank.

                                                            If Chelsea beat Watford tomorrow, are we expecting heavy WOL rotation?

                                                              Sorry, that will be if City beat Leicester.
