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.

    If you want to get Ederson you will probably have to transfer him in by tomorrow night to avoid his price rise.

      Frustrating as hell but fair play to those who went with Salah, Sterling & Kane.

    6. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years

      2 goals in a few minutes and didn’t even play that well. Immense. What a player. How the hell I get him in my team I do not know

    8. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Spurs need Eriksen. Winks useless. Sissoko useless.

    9. ElBuffalo20
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Yes thanks Kane, totally picked the wrong captain but I’ll take it

    10. Bam Bam Bigelow

      Spurs leaving it late like its 2018/19

    11. puhd

      Thank you

      1. Skloppy Kops
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Kelly imo

      22pter from Dendoncker tomorrow and I hit the ton

    13. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years

      Was all going so well too. Still a good first week

    14. Mumble Pie
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Glad l squeezed Kane in! Clinical

    15. denial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      The SSK team would've been the one after all.

    16. Licky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I'm still worried about Sterling. Trying to get the Salah/Sterling/Kane decision right is going to be frustrating.

      1. Ha.
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        All 3?

        1. Licky
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Could be the way to go, the budget options do look good this year.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Get all three? I did, and feel my team really doesn’t look too unbalanced

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Same, 91 with two to play.

    17. Skloppy Kops
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I can see juicy peice rises for my players here.. ederson, Kane, Sterling, McGinn and Salah

    18. The Mastermind
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      71 with Perez and Auba to play..

      Still feels like a bad week? idk

      1. Pad Randa
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Just two posts down, I’m kinda in the same boat. Going to be a super high avg.

    19. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      That’s first time ever Harry Kane has scored in the Premier League since he turned 26.

    20. Pad Randa
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      No Sterling. 70 before BAPs (of which it looks like I’ll have 3 for Kane and 1 for KdB, too bad none for Pope), Auba and Perez to go. Not bad for starting Rico...
