Kane supported by Moura and Lamela against Villa

Harry Kane (£11.0m) will be supported by Lucas Moura (£7.5m) and Erik Lamela (£6.0m) for Spurs’ Gameweek 1 clash with Aston Villa.

With Son Heung-min (£9.5m) suspended and Dele Alli (£8.5m) ruled out with a hamstring injury, there was an opportunity for cheaper midfield players to come in for Spurs.

Moura and Lamela have taken those opportunities and those who included them in their first squad of the season will be delighted.

Moura is currently in 11.2% of squads as the Brazilian was considered the most popular cheaper alternative to the expensive Kane.

Lamela is the real differential, snapped up by Scout legend Mark Sutherns for Gameweek 1, and owned by just 0.7% of Fantasy managers.

Christian Eriksen (£9.0m) is among the substitutes and it will be interesting to see which of the attacking players he replaces if he does come on.

Kyle Walker-Peters (£5.0m) gets a start at right-back with Juan Foyth (£5.0m) suspended, although Serge Aurier (£5.0m) has recovered from his knock to feature on the bench.

Meanwhile, Dean Smith surprised Fantasy managers with some elements of his team selection.

Despite Matt Targett (£4.5m) and Frederic Guilbert (£4.5m) playing extensively at left and right full-back respectively in pre-season, neither were in the starting line-up.

The former was named on the bench while Guilbert was not in the matchday squad at all.

Furthermore, Jota (£6.0m) also impressed during the summer but is named among the substitutes while Anwar El Ghazi (£5.5m) and Trezeguet (£5.5m) start either side of Wesley (£6.0m)

Spurs XI: Lloris; Rose, Sánchez, Alderweireld, Walker-Peters; Ndombele, Sissoko, Winks; Lamela, Lucas; Kane.

Aston Villa XI: Heaton; N Taylor, Mings, Engels, El Mohamady; Grealish, McGinn, Hourihane; El Ghazi, Wesley, Trezeguet.

      Well done

  2. COK3Y5MURF - Unbelievable J…

    Salah and Sterling have destroyed my team.

    To accommodate them, I've had to settle for these chumps from Bournemouth and Watford ffs...

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Salah Sterling accompanied by a big back 5 is smashing it

      Next up Ayoze & Vardy hauls 🙂

      1. Boxwoods
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

        Yes please.

      2. Mino Raiola
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

        even didtn have to be that big at the back, just casual five with brighton, burnley and palace cleanies. lets see how long this template lasts!

    2. Big Troy Deeney
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 19 days ago

      what is your team?

    3. tiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Salah and Sterling have got me 41 points...5 other players have got me 32. Didn't need any Watford and only 1 Bournemouth. Who did you choose?

    4. Lazaretti
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Happy that I have Kane who I can easily downgrade to get Sterling if I want.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

  4. Ha.
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 19 days ago

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Rico out???close to cs and bAP, on corners etc, what do you expect for 4.0?

      1. pumpkinhead
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

        this

      2. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

        he didn't play particularly well imo, but this

    2. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Keep Trossard for sure

    3. Flynny
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Save ft.

      Next week Fraser and tross out

      Maybe martial / pulisic/ Barkley

      1. Sleep Talk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

        Definitely. I'm aiming for Martial in gw3. Trossard should get minutes. Brighton look better than expected.

    4. pumpkinhead
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      k

    5. wildebeest123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Lundstram much better pick for 4.0

      1. pumpkinhead
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

        How?

        1. wildebeest123
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 19 days ago

          Reverse OOP, and Sheffield look promising.

          1. wildebeest123
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            6 months, 19 days ago

            *OOP

            1. pumpkinhead
              • 5 Years
              6 months, 19 days ago

              Rico is as OOP as Lunds(LWB) Rico was further up the pitch - Rico played the full 90 - Lunds did not. Rico on some set piece - Lunds is not. I just don't understand after watching that game how you think Lunds is better.

              1. wildebeest123
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                6 months, 12 days ago

                Rico benched today... Lol at you!

            2. pumpkinhead

    2. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      1. Boxwoods
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

        Did you do Wilson > Jimmy?

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 19 days ago

          No stuck with Wilson and Jota in the end

          1. Boxwoods
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            6 months, 19 days ago

            At least you avoided King.
            Wilson can still be a good choice.

    4. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Yes

  11. tafrère

        It’s too early in the season for all these brag posts

  14. TheDragon
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 19 days ago

    How did Robinson look today? Look a decent FPL prospect?

    1. tafrère
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Decent yes, but not on my watchlist though.

    2. pumpkinhead
      • 5 Years

  15. tafrère
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 19 days ago

    Anyone watched the Burnley game ? If so, did Chris Wood looked in shape ?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Scoring all those preseason goals out of shape would be a talent.

  17. seewhyaxe
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 19 days ago

    I'm seeing some crazy gw1 scores out there with no chips used.

    Similar to last season!

    1. Pep says
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      With Sterling and Salah and one of them captain, that's half or more of most of those teams points

    2. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 19 days ago

      I reckon a fair few will have 100+

      But it’s been a good week for the template

  18. JustPark
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 19 days ago

    Header doesn't look convincing much tbh.

  19. Unliklinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 19 days ago

    Still happy with 6pts from a 4.5 but Montoya lost those 2 baps he was on for briefly...

  20. VAR Star
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 19 days ago

    Can I get a whoop whoop for an OOP OOP?

    Thanks whomever suggested Martin Montoya of Brighton!

  21. marzo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    6 months, 19 days ago

    84 points with just Perez left for me this GW.
    Very pleased obviously with that but a few issues will need sorting soon.

    Wilson/King + Adam Smith the guys up before the dock soon!
    May wait another week for the Villa game before re-assessing but Bournemouth looked really poor today all round.

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Similar with Perez Jota if BAPS hold I thinkkk

      Well done to ya

  22. GREEN IS GOOD
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 19 days ago

    Brighton are the new Wolves.

    Coleman & Pope both inches from baps, narrowly missing out FFS
