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.

      That was a nice goal.

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

        Yes, but who?

        Hanley-Lundstram-Kelly defence?

    8. Hairy Potter
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

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

    9. Roll The Dyche

      Villa will be alright I reckon

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

            im certain hes speaking completely objectively

      3. Demigod Mendy

        8 months, 3 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

        2. Skloppy Kops
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          Still conceded 3 though

          1. Demigod Mendy
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 3 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
          8 months, 3 days ago

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

      5. The Casual One
        • 7 Years

        Almost every popular player is scoring

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

          Lovely hopefully that sucks in more Kane owners 🙂

          Come on Harry still time for the hatrick lad.

          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
            8 months, 3 days ago

            Don’t think that’s true

            1. Forza
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              8 months, 3 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.

        10. The Overthinker - I blame R…
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          Kdb cover sterling

          Moura covers Kane

        11. Danstoke82
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          That’s why you have Kane in your team

        12. Rolls-Royce
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

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

        13. DA Minnion
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 3 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
            8 months, 3 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.

            • 4 Years

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

          3. Kobayashy
              8 months, 3 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.
