Which Spurs players are worth owning in FPL this season?

Tottenham Hotspur players are causing some Fantasy Premier League managers dilemmas at the start of the season.

They have a favourable opening fixture at home to Aston Villa but with a trip to Manchester City in Gameweek 2 and relatively expensive price points, their assets could be the ones to miss out on those initial teams.

However, there are some encouraging reasons to own some of Mauricio Pochettino’s players at the start of the new campaign.

In this article we assess Spurs’ defensive and attacking potential based on last season’s underlying statistics.

      A. For me, it is balanced as far as returns are concerned. 3 reasonable chances of returns every week.
      B. Obviously just trying to squeeze Kane in at the expense of ‘A’. Rico doesn’t often start and usually subs, not worth the 4m investment (and I’m a Cherries supporter!). McGinn, the jury is out, but Robinson (Sheffield) has been playing OOP as a forward in pre-season and is the same price....

    Please RMT, any criticisms will definitely be taken in to consideration:

    Ryan (Button)
    VVD, Zinchenko, Coleman (Lundstram, Kelly)
    Salah, Sterling, Barkley, Perez, Robinson
    Kane, Wilson (Greenwood)

    Thanks and good luck to all.

        Zinchenko probably fairly short term though....

        Would you consider Jota and upgrade him to ederson .... You can put in a burnley def then or a 5.0M def

      Ederson Button
      Robertson VVD Digne Diop Rico
      Salah Sterling Siggy Perez Dendonker

        My team at the moment:

        Arnold,Van Dijk,Digne,Rico,Lundstram

        I am going with 3-5-2 with 4 bench fodders (Button,Lundstram,Rico and Wickham) who all got a chance to get a few minutes. I have done this in order to get as much money as possible for my starting eleven.

        And also I want you to answer this question:

        A:Sterling and Jota (or another 6.5M forward)
        B:Lucas and Kane

        Which one?

        1) Ederson, Barkley
        2) Heaton, Haller (let's me get a 4.5 mid that could sub in if necessary)
