Maddison owners wait on injury as Son delivers again

Leicester City 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Goals: Harry Kane (£11.0m) | Ricardo Pereira (£6.0m), James Maddison (£7.1m)

Assists: Son Heung-min (£9.6m) | Hamza Choudhury (£4.5m)

Bonus Points: Maddison x3, Kane x2, Pereira x1

Leicester City emerged victorious over Tottenham Hotspur in a 2-1 win as Mauricio Pochettino’s side let yet another lead slip in the 2019/20 campaign. 

After a disappointing result mid-week against Olympiacos, the lunch-time kick-off at the King Power Stadium presented the perfect opportunity for Spurs to banish their demons and return to winning ways in domestic competition. 

Yet Brendan Rodgers galvanised the Foxes to come back from 1-0 down and secure an important victory in front of their home fans in the East Midlands. 

Maddison scored Leicester’s winning goal on Saturday afternoon

Ricardo Pereira (£6.0m) got the first of the Foxes’ fightback, drilling a shot past Paulo Gazzaniga (£4.4m).

But it was James Maddison (£7.1m) who stole the headlines with a fine strike from distance to secure all three points for Leicester as they rise to third in the table. 

Maddison’s credentials as a mid-priced midfielder with goalscoring threat are well documented after his exceptional debut Premier League season in which he scored seven goals and registered seven assists to record a total of 137 points. 

He has shown promise in recent weeks and finally delivered with his excellent Gameweek 6 goal combined with maximum bonus points.

Maddison was certainly due a goal, having already gone close twice against Spurs. He tested Gazzaniga with a curled effort from the edge of the box in the first-half, followed by a dazzling run, beating two defenders to then have his shot pushed wide of the near post shortly after.

His performance in the victory over Spurs once again underlined his potential value to managers looking for a differential midfielder (11.3% ownership), although they should tread easy for now.

Maddison owners will have to wait on his ankle injury over the next few days

Maddison picked up a potentially worrying ankle injury late in the game, triggering some concern after the full-time whistle. Leicester had used all their substitutes by this point so nobody was able to replace him. However, rather than come off and leave the Foxes with 10 men, Maddison elected to spend the final five minutes of the match standing virtually still inside the centre-circle. We will certainly need to pay close attention to Rodgers’ next press conference.

“I’ll go and see it now, there’s a little bit of worry but we’ll see.” – James Maddison

“He took a heavy knock on his ankle, so we will see how he is tomorrow.” – Brendan Rodgers

Both Jamie Vardy (£8.9m) and Maddison looked sharp throughout the lunch-time kick-off. The centre-forward was unable to build on his goal-tally of three so far this season, but the 31-year-old’s incisive, troubling runs into the final-third suggest this is still a player with the ability to excel under Brendan Rodgers in 2019/20.

The likes of Youri Tielemans (£6.4m) and Ayoze Perez (£6.1m) were also lively in the final third, with the Foxes continuing to apply pressure and test the Spurs’ backline in the second half.

This victory means Leicester have now lost just once in six Premier League games this season, and the plethora of exciting, attacking options provides managers with mid-price options moving forward.

Yet while this was a victory that underlined Leicester’s attacking credentials, it was an afternoon that served as a timely reminder as to just how fragile Spurs’ defence can be in the face of considerable pressure.

Spurs capitulated for the second time this week as they lost at Leicester

The mid-week capitulation against Olympiakos combined with letting a two-goal lead slip against rivals Arsenal serve as a concerning back-drop to this latest poor result.

Serge Aurier (£4.9m) did display his attacking prowess with a fine strike that was ruled out by VAR but Spurs simply do not look sturdy enough to justify investment in defence, although they were short Hugo Lloris (£5.5m) whose wife had just given birth.

Furthermore, there will be many that argue they were unfortunate to see their second goal ruled out given how marginal the offside call was, and the impact on the two sets of players was stark. While Spurs were dealt a blow of losing out on a goal, Leicester were spurred on as if they had found the net themselves.

“We need to say that when you get the benefit, it’s not getting the benefit, it’s fair or not fair, offside or not offside. I’m not going to talk. I’m only going to say that we all accept that system in the game and now I am not going to complain. I am going to accept that maybe if you are going to say it’s offside or wasn’t if it wasn’t clear, but I trust in the referees and if the referees say it was or wasn’t I’m not going to complain.” – Mauricio Pochettino

Kane’s finish against Leicester was a hugely impressive effort

Harry Kane (£11.0m) did open the scoring for Spurs with an exquisite improvised finish, after Son Heung-min (£9.6m) delicately laid off the ball for the striker.

It was a truly impressive finish as he was fouled by the defender but still kept enough composure as he fell to the ground to control the ball and crash it into Kasper Schmeichel‘s (£5.0m) net from the ground. 

Whilst premium strikers such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) and Sergio Aguero (£12.2m) have stolen the headlines with their rampant goalscoring streaks in recent weeks, Kane’s performance in the defeat to Leicester was a reminder to managers that the England captain is still able to provide goalscoring returns. 

It must be said that Kane was unfortunate not to come away with an assist on top of his goal. It was his pass that set up Aurier’s goal, ruled out for an offside against Son in the build-up.

But given the explosive performances that the likes of Aubameyang and Aguero have been consistently delivering, it is difficult for managers to select a forward such as Kane when he is not matching their goalscoring consistency.  

Son has delivered in both of his last two matches ahead of an appealing run of games

For Son, who built on his brace against Palace with an assist, this was a game that highlighted the South-Korean’s attacking abilities and a performance that rewarded those managers who brought in the forward for Gameweek 6. 

With games against Southampton, Brighton and Watford to come in their next three, Son is starting to display form that would warrant inclusion for managers, having recorded attacking returns in his last three Premier League appearances – the most of any Spurs player. 

This was a heavily disappointing defeat for Spurs, but the growing viability of Leicester’s attacking assets simply cannot go un-noticed for managers given their exceptional form under Rodgers in 2019/20.

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Soyuncu. But I'm considering Aurier, Tomori, Pieters.

      I think Lundstram and Rico are stars as well. Very happy to have them.

          No way. I think he's a huge trap. Bellerin is very nearly ready too.

        This is it. The consistency's there for me with both Salah (c) and KDB (vc), and I'm sick of the headache.

    15. Daniel - The Veteran

    Just seen the Newcastle result. 10pts for Ryan a pleasant surprise and needed after losing his clean sheet in the 90th minute last week.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      This!

  6. Winston.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    27 days, 9 hours ago

    I have Abraham. Would you prefer in that case:

    A. Maddison or
    B. Mount ?

    In A Dendoncker as fifth mid, in B I could get Cantwell later.

    1. Winston.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      ...supposing Maddison fit of course

  7. Pat Butcher
    • 4 Years
    27 days, 9 hours ago

    TAA, Barnes, sterling, Haller

    To

    4.5, Tammy, son, aguero

    -8?

  8. thomashl
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    27 days, 9 hours ago

    Digne -> Otamendi?

    Don’t have city def. Everton doesn’t seem to be trustworthy, even if he gets an assist every three matches he’s not value

    1. DAZZ
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Yup ota the best option under 5.5

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Yes thinking the same, he needs a few 15 pointers to make up for the 0’s.

      1. thomashl
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 9 hours ago

        Cheers lads. Yup, it’s a no brainer when you can get city def cover for 5.4

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Eyeing this move too.

  9. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 2 Years
    27 days, 9 hours ago

    Montoya and Lundstram!! It's the year of the cheap defense!

    1. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Yep with TAA as the exception though.

  10. Salt'N'Pepe
    • 4 Years
    27 days, 9 hours ago

    48 from 6 with Salah (C), VVD, Abraham, McGinn and one Kelly, greenwood or lundstram in that order to come on for sterling.

    🙁

    1. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      A lot of people sweating on Kelly and hoping he does not start.

      1. Salt'N'Pepe
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 9 hours ago

        ive got Kelly and greenwood ahead off Lundstram 🙁

    2. Rewant-WantToWinEverything!

      I can see you easily getting 60+ score this gameweek which after last week's nightmare for everyone seems a breath of fresh air. So chill.. 🙂

  11. Champions united
    • 2 Years
    27 days, 9 hours ago

    Posting again
    Who should go out first
    1.I was thinking of digne but after mendy zinc also need to move out

    2.Is it wise to have double pool def
    VVD TAA zinchenko digne

    1. Rewant-WantToWinEverything!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      1. Digne would start all games for Everton while Zinchenko is not guaranteed starts now. So I think if you are going for 1, go for Zinc and bring in a sure starter from city's defence (probably Otamendi at 5.4).

      2. No, double pool defense with those set of fixtures doesnt seem wise to me.

  12. Crouching Tiger
    • 6 Years
    27 days, 9 hours ago

    Norwich really need to up their away games.

    Thinking of doing Pukki & Salah to Mane & C.Wilson but that would be too sideways I think...

    1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Nope. Will be a good move

    2. Rewant-WantToWinEverything!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Removing a player like Pukki who has such huge ownership and has great fixtures ahead of him would be a suicidal move at this stage of the game. Have patience with your players. He has had one bad gamweek ffs!

      Salah to Mane might save you funds but what are you planning to do with them? If nothing major, then I would refrain from that transfer unless I was on a wildcard.

      1. Lanley Staurel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 9 hours ago

        It’s about points scoring not ownership. If Pukki doesn’t deliver then not owning is so much better. Regression to norm is on the way I reckon.

        1. Crouching Tiger
          • 6 Years
          27 days, 9 hours ago

          This. As much as I love Pukki as a player, I don't think he can keep it up all season and Norwich has been awful in away games so far. Pukki needs service to shine...

          1. Lanley Staurel
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            27 days, 8 hours ago

            Agreed. It’s points that matter and those going forward not over the past few weeks especially for a newly promoted team. People will just keep believing though even when the points continue to dry up.

        2. Rewant-WantToWinEverything!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 9 hours ago

          I wouldnt say that a player with points that read 2,12,2,11,17,7 warrant removal. Thats 2 blanks in first 6 gameweeks with green fixtures on the way.

          But, you do you.

        3. PlumaPiedra
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          27 days, 8 hours ago

          I remember reading this in his last blank before he played Man City.

          1. MTPockets
            • 10 Years
            27 days, 8 hours ago

            yeah I dropped him on wc. That went well

          2. Lanley Staurel
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            27 days, 8 hours ago

            And here we are again with another blank. People with 2 Norwich strikers it’s gonna hurt.

            1. PlumaPiedra
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              27 days, 8 hours ago

              I would take a blank every other week at that price, probably more.

  13. FIRMINOLOOKGOAL
    • 5 Years
    27 days, 9 hours ago

    Kun, James -> Tammy, Son for free.
    Mad?

    1. Crouching Tiger
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      All of them are scoring, so pretty much sideways move.

      1. FIRMINOLOOKGOAL
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 9 hours ago

        We'll see after Lpool match, I can afford Tammy rise tonight. Son is too threatening to ignore.

    2. The Wise Owl
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Not sure, Aguero looks like he's selected for the PL, whereas Jesus for CL.

      1. FIRMINOLOOKGOAL
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 9 hours ago

        Just had a feeling Kun is the next one to be benched. I own Sterling.

        1. Pat Butcher
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 9 hours ago

          I'm the same

    3. Rewant-WantToWinEverything!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Mad.

  14. MITHRRANDIRR
    • 6 Years
    27 days, 9 hours ago

    Who's the Brighton defender to have? Montoya nowhere near baps and not too attacking. Is it Dunk/Burns?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Still think Montoya, playing WB

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 9 hours ago

        Not sure I agree. Dunk & Burn are dangerous.

        1. FPLGraham
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          27 days, 9 hours ago

          Burn and Webster underlap a lot so think I’d rather have those two or Dunk for set piece goal threat. (Own Montoya)

    2. F4L
      • 4 Years

      Montoya or Dunk. Montoya got in some nice attacking positions today, just Brighton lack a decent striker. Dunk will get the odd goal from corners, hit the bar today

    3. Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Dunk

      Dunk

    5. PlumaPiedra

      I thought Montoya looked quite attacking today.

    Any word from Pep on Sterling today?

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Like what? He was rested, simples

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      He said something along the lines of "we have a large squad, lots of great players, everyone will play their part now that there are 2 games every week" which means as expected, it was a normal rotation.

    Diop and Montoya have defo played their parts in my team this season. Diop off the bench again this week. Hoping for another 7 pointer

    How likely is Aurier to keep his place?

    Or get Soyuncu for safety?

    1. Winston.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Soy

    2. Rewant-WantToWinEverything!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      With Aurier being so heavily involved in the attacking third in the 2 games he has started this season, I really dont see Poch moving him out just yet. He will eventually rotate with KWP, but that time is not now!

      1. Skonto Rigga
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 8 hours ago

        Foyth about to return, as well - Poch favoured him at RB or RCB on a number of occasions at the back-end of last season. Seems to rate him a lot based on past quotes.

    Not too concerned with Maddison. He was walking around on the pitch until the end of the game after being checked out by physios

  20. Super Saints
    • 3 Years
    27 days, 9 hours ago

    TAA James Greenwood > Rico Son Abraham -4?

    Pope Button
    VVD Otamendi Lundstram Kelly Rico
    Mane KDB Son Mount Geundouzi
    Aguero Abraham Pukki

    1. Rewant-WantToWinEverything!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      I wouldnt touch TAA. With the number of crosses he puts in every game, I would be very surprised if he isnt top 5 defender come the end of season. If anything, you can remove VVD as doubling up on the pool defense is a bit too much given their fixtures.

      Rest of the 2 transfers look tasty to be honest.

      Good stuff. Just when people started saying there are no points to be had in defence.

    What is the difference between Key Pass (Whoscored.com) and Chance Created (Member Stats)?

    1. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      I'm not sure but I think an assist to the assister is a key pass. Chance created is an assist or missed assist

    2. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      People take this game way too seriously 🙂

    3. tucaoneo

      Whoscored and FPL both use OPTA as source. Here is the definition from OPTA:

      Key Pass
      The final pass or pass-cum-shot leading to the recipient of the ball having an attempt at goal without scoring.

      Chances Created
      Assists plus Key passes.

        27 days, 9 hours ago

        @tucaoneo I don't think so....
        Digne's chance created in FFS Member = 5
        Digne's key passes in whoscored = 2.2/matches = 13
        Digne's assist = 2

        1. tucaoneo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          27 days, 8 hours ago

          I'm looking at all matches in Members area. Digne has 13 chances created, 2 assists.

          1. The 12th Man

            • 6 Years

            If only we had a decent striker to convert those chances.

          Yeah so something doesn't add up there, but not much.

    Best Mina replacement upto 5.6m? Have TAA and Otamendi.

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Aurier

        3. Legend of Rosický
          • 1 Year
          27 days, 9 hours ago

          You are right imo. Wouldnt get him even if he was nailed and was Arsenals best defender. Having to watch that defence every week as a fan is painful enough

    3. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Both arent nailed though. Bellerin played this week for the Under 23s and is in full training. Aurier is being criticized for his performance today.

    4. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      The options I am somewhat considering are Chilwell, Ald and Matip

    5. Squeakybum99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Soy for his good run. Has liverpool coming up though. or a Burnley defender

    Barnes to Wood?

    1. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 8 hours ago

      and then back again!

  26. DAZZ
    • 5 Years
    27 days, 9 hours ago

    Otamendi is a great option with the injuries. 5.4 nailed into the City defence. Its a chance too good to pass on. Especially with their upcoming fixtures

    1. AzzaroMax99
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Are you sure that he is nailed? I want him too.

  27. no kane no pain
    27 days, 9 hours ago

    Current squad

    Pope heaton
    Vvd robbo digne lundstram dunk
    Kdb salah sterling dendonk mount
    Barnes pukki grenwood

    Got 2 transfers

    Do i

    1. Sell robbo or digne to free funds was thinking pereira as good leic run and he is likely on assist front than soyunklu
    2. Sell dendonk for cantwell as 2nd transfer and keep 0.5 in bank
    3. Do nothing
    4. Only do 1 of above. If so which and why?

    Ta

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Digne > Otamendi

  28. TeddiPonza
    • 9 Years
    27 days, 9 hours ago

    How is this plan?

    James, Zinch and Digne to KdB Rico and Kelly for -4?

    Would mean triple attack City, but Sterling could easily become Mane or Auba in the weeks after.

    Thanks..

    1.2 ITB and 2 FTs:

    Digne/Greenwood to Lundstram/Abraham?

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Yes, both rising fast.

    2. AzzaroMax99
      • 3 Years

      And what if Tammy gets injured tomorrow?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Swapping one nailed player for two, win, win.

  30. Unai Emery

    I will not make the move now but what to with Digne?

    A) Keep
    B) Soyuncu
    C) Pereira
    D) Aurier

    1. lordkippe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      B

    2. Crouching Tiger
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Wondering the same. Maitland-Niles also an option after ManU game.

      1. Unai Emery
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 9 hours ago

        No, dont touch our defence.
