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.

    Heaton is so good. I went Pope but really think I’d prefer Heaton long run

    Pope might have won this week, but i'm more than happy sticking with Heaton and risking this fixture....

  10. F4L
    • 5 Years

    dam Sanchez took it off Moura 🙁

  11. sirmorbach
    • 3 Years

    73 points + Vardy to play (and a couple of minutes left for Heaton to save a few more)

    Decent?

    1. Guy Demel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    4. 7shadesofsmoke

      appalling. You might as well delete your team

      1. 7shadesofsmoke
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

        (sounds around the top end of average)

          You loser

    5. LosBlancos

      • 2 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Im on 75 with Salah C

      Perez Jota and Martial to play, hoping to break 100 😀

      You also sound good

      1. sirmorbach
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

        Nice! I actually don't hope you break 100 because my league rival has Jota and Martian :p

        But if you break 100 with a dozen of assists by Pérez to Vardy in a PL record I'm ok with that!

        Good luck, mate!

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

          Haha, thanks! We'll see.
          I expect around 4 goal involvements between the 3 of them, we'll see 🙂

  12. ZeBestee

    If Spurs keep hold of Eriksen by signing a new contract and with the additions they have done, will be a force to reckon.

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Not sure about their defence. And their mentality to win trophies. But a very exciting team nonetheless.

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

        RB is the biggest issue, but they still have Aurier who they have to keep hold of. He is a decent RB. I think Poch is too good a coach to be concerned about mentality.

  13. Tom Heat-is-on
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 19 days ago

    How has Kane been? Just started watching.

    1. Bubz
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      Poor

    2. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Pretty poor

    3. thepeen555
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      I would have thought he wasn’t on the pitch

    4. Tom Heat-is-on
      • 3 Years

      Thanks. It is august after all.

        • 7 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

        Just the fact that his hand touched the ball. 😉

  15. Paul Psychic Octopus

    Son in for Moura to play alongside Kane.
    With Ndombele, no need any more for Sissoko.
    Winks and Eriksen (assuming he stays).
    Leaves one midfield spot - Lo Celso hopefully. Alli not fit. Lamela not fit for purpose

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

      When is Son gonna be back

      1. Zilla
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

        Good but not very attacking

      2. Skloppy Kops
        • 4 Years

        Spurs all over them so no much space for attacking play. But he'll be great for fpl i guess

      • 2 Years
      6 months, 19 days ago

      1. F4L
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

        Ndombele goal no question
