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.

      Think they stopped saying that last year.

    mr kane, can you play in the start of th season?

    Didn’t deserve this villa. Such a shame.

    Heston has been awesome. Mings will be a CB legend.

    McGinn is also pretty decent

    1. Roll The Dyche

      Blumenthal? (“Heston”). Didn’t know he played footy!

      They're crap

    Kane took both of those goals really well, sharp.

    3 BAPS for Kane surely

      100%

    Thanks Harry, race for the golden boot should be good if all the principal players stay fit.

    KSS essential

      Wait till A joins the party 😉

        SAKS

    Auba will still outscore Kane.

    1. Roll The Dyche
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Well see

  11. Rik Waller

    Just needed that goal to afford Kane > Raz hit.

    1. Kobayashy
        8 months, 2 days ago

        Bad move

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Over to you Ser Jamie & Ser Ayoze

      20 points would be nice

      Good for Kane owners.

      You can't have everyone. He's doing what a premium player should do against a newly promoted team.

      1. Berbinho's Forehead
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 2 days ago

        Yep. One goal would have been damage limitation, two goals is about par.

    4. How Mina You
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 2 days ago

      Villa supremely unlucky here.

      1. Podge
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 2 days ago

        You think ?

        1. How Mina You
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 2 days ago

          Defended very well for most of the match and conceded 1 (or arguably 2) jammy goals.

      2. F4L
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 2 days ago

        how?

      3. pumpkinhead
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 2 days ago

        Parked the bus waaaaay to early

    5. TERIYAKI 69
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 2 days ago

      kept KDB in my team instead of getting Kane.

    6. Cholito
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 2 days ago

      Deserved 2pts turns into lucky and undeserved 13.
      That's usual thing in fantasy.

      1. Kobayashy
          8 months, 2 days ago

          Non-Kane owner, I take it?

      2. Tom Heat-is-on
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 2 days ago

        Best captain for GW2?

        A) Salah (sou)
        B) Sterling (TOT)
        C) Kane (mci)

        1. F4L
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 2 days ago

          B easily

      3. Berbinho's Forehead
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 2 days ago

        Fair play Kane owners.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Feeling pretty lucky TBH...wasn't looking good

          😎

        Auba owners, how are we holding up?

        1. FISSH
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 2 days ago

          Excited.

        2. thepeen555
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 2 days ago

          I got salah, Kdb, Kane and auba

          1. Business Cat
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            8 months, 2 days ago

            Snap...I'll love it if I overtake some Sterling owners in my MLs

            1. thepeen555
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 2 days ago

              Yeah think it will balance it’s self out. When you work it out on potential point average the money used not having sterling and going KdB makes sense. It is tough to watch mind you.

              1. Business Cat
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                8 months, 2 days ago

                I got Auba in with an eye to differential captain next week too

        3. The Overthinker - I blame R…
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 2 days ago

          I have been someone who continuously tinkered between auba and Kane, and went with auba, I am pretty confident

          1. luke
            • 10 Years
            8 months, 2 days ago

            I went with both

          Touching cloth.

          Picked ASS instead of SSK

          1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 2 days ago

            Always been an ASS guy 😉

            1. thepeen555
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 2 days ago

              Lol

            2. ajay_kl +42
              • 9 Years
              8 months, 2 days ago

              Had Auba all week instead of Kane so can't complain

        5. SADIO SANÉ
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 2 days ago

          As long as Kane doesn't rise in price this week I'm fine with it

          1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 2 days ago

            He'll rise by Monday:D

        6. 2hotty
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 2 days ago

          fine glad i got a premium striker so much easier to switch to another when needed

      5. Bubz
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 2 days ago

        Those who went with the 3 big hitters are the winners this week

        1. Roll The Dyche
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          • 5 Years

          Yep. Will be interesting to see if it holds up over the full season...

          • 8 Years
          8 months, 2 days ago

          Think I'm going to kneejerk the missing 3rd of them in. KDB + Fraser -> Sterling + 5M.

        Main rival have Kane, McGinn on the bench. Great start of the season.

      7. NeverLucky
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 2 days ago

        Salah, Sterling and Kane (C) - good week 1! Although Kane was a bit lucky...

      8. thepeen555

        Respect if you captained kane. I don’t have the balls to risk it on himlol

        8 months, 2 days ago

        Pogba, Rashford, Wan Bissaka and Almiron left to play with 78 points. Let's go baby

        That moment when Kane saves your GW and you come out like the Hermit Crab that I am 😀 No shame

      14. niko mate

        Kane is still a dookie. 2 lucky goals don't convince me to buy him.

        Is my memory correct, last season Spurs scored many last minute goals?
