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.

    Guess I'll keep Harry in my squad then. Someone else has to make way for Sterling.

    1. Homer21

      Yes, but who?

    2. Paul Psychic Octopus

      Hanley-Lundstram-Kelly defence?

  11. Hairy Potter
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 14 days ago

    Possession and shots stats make this look far more one sided than it is.

  12. Roll The Dyche

    Villa will be alright I reckon

  13. SirStevieG

    Hahahahahaha what a joke. Shouldn't have either goal. Lucky as you can get.

      I'm gonna go out on a limb...non-owner? 😉

      1. Mr Peanutbutter

        im certain hes speaking completely objectively

  14. Demigod Mendy

    5 months, 14 days ago

    Just a word on Mings. The lad has won almost every dual, cleared everything that has come his way. Commanding presence and great passer of the ball in general.

    MoM performance today.

    1. Demigod Mendy
      • 3 Years

      *duel

    2. Skloppy Kops

      Still conceded 3 though

      1. Demigod Mendy
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        You don't get the point do you? But then, you're a Liverpool fan so I'm not expecting much anyway.

    Preium Trio: Salah + Sterling + Kane working splendidly!

    1. F4L
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      depends on the compromises you had to make to get it though

  16. The Casual One
    • 7 Years

    Almost every popular player is scoring

    Oh get stuffed Harry.

    Well, they play City next! 😆

    Imagine not having Kane.

    1. The Gobstopper

      Don't have to imagine...unfortunately. : (

    2. Kobayashy

      Yesssssss o/

    3. Demigod Mendy

      Imagine not captaining Sterling 😉

  19. Captain Kakaroto (I blame R…

    Lovely hopefully that sucks in more Kane owners 🙂

  24. Ógie

    Come on Harry still time for the hatrick lad.

  25. Forza
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    5 months, 14 days ago

    Kane non-owners should relax. Nobody owns Sterling + triple Liverpool + Kane, so his points are irrelevant as long as the others do well.

    1. charliej66
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Don’t think that’s true

      1. Forza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        If there's somehow a viable team out there with Salah, Sterling, Kane and two of TAA/Robertson/VVD, they're going to have huge problems when their deadwood starts rotting and the likes of Perez start scoring. Every team needs smooth access to mid-price attackers.

  26. The Overthinker - I blame R…
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 14 days ago

    Kdb cover sterling

    Moura covers Kane

  27. Danstoke82
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 14 days ago

    That’s why you have Kane in your team

  28. Rolls-Royce
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 14 days ago

    GW saved by Kane. Not having sterling is still gonna be troublesome.

  29. DA Minnion
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 14 days ago

    For those who said to get Kane Salah and Sterling would unbalance the team , glad I didn't take your advice.

    1. gooberman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      It does unbalance the team. Don't get carried away after 1 week. Over time, the lack of available funds elsewhere for the rest of your team will hurt you.

    2. adibo
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Depends on the team tbh .. you can have all 3 and nice team imo

    3. Kobayashy
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Not being salty because I have two of those, but you'd be foolish to think we won't see some decent mid-priced options emerge over the next few weeks.

    Oh eff off Kane!! FFS! Late goals effing up an otherwise great day. Seems to happen so often.
