Spurs assets continue decline as Watford show more improvement

Spurs 1-1 Watford

Goals: Dele Alli (£8.4m) | Abdoulaye Doucouré (£5.7m)

Assists: Daryl Janmaat (£4.3m)

Bonus Points: Janmaat x3, Doucouré x2, Alli x1

Interest in Spurs assets continues to understandably decline as they failed to get back to winning ways in Gameweek 9 and a benched Son Heung-min (£9.7m) featured only in the second half.

A home meeting with a struggling Watford side was the perfect fixture to exorcise the demons of a 7-2 defeat to Bayern Munich and the 3-0 loss at Brighton – but Mauricio Pochettino’s men were still lacking at both ends of the pitch.

It does appear as if Spurs’ defence is a big part of the problem as they conceded within the first six minutes of the match.

“The performance wasn’t great. It wasn’t great, but again when you concede an early goal of course in the momentum of the team it’s always tough. Of course, it’s a difficult situation because when you want to build your confidence again and be solid and to have the calm to play, because you always need to be calm to play, we started to take rash decisions.” – Mauricio Pochettino

Pochettino had lined up with a back-three, consisting of Jan Vertonghen (£5.3m), Davinson Sánchez (£5.4m) and Toby Alderweireld (£5.5m), with Danny Rose (£5.4m) and Serge Aurier (£4.9m) on the flanks.

Watford capitalised on Spurs’ recent defensive problems early-on in Gameweek 9

Perhaps this is why Watford found it too easy to get around the back of Spurs’ defence so early on, with wing-back Daryl Janmaat (£4.3m) getting past Rose and having the time to play in a perfect cross for the onrushing Abdoulaye Doucouré (£5.7m) to score largely unchallenged.

To put that goal into the context of Watford’s own difficult season, it was just the second time they had found the net away from home in the Premier League in 2019/20 – a further indictment of the Spurs defence.

Admittedly, the beginning of this match was a little unorthodox. Danny Welbeck (£5.9m) went down with a hamstring problem inside the first 90 seconds and required lengthy treatment so that when he finally left the field in the fourth minute, it was as if the game had started again.

“During the week he was good. He didn’t complain about anything and our feeling with him was really good, but the ankle is uncomfortable.” – Quique Sanchez Flores

However, Spurs can hardly use this as an excuse, as the Hornets were not knocked off-kilter by having to bring Gerard Deulofeu (£6.1m) onto the field and tweak their attacking system.

Welbeck was taken off with a hamstring problem early on

With Spurs’ defence in such bad shape of late, those invested in the Liverpool attack will perhaps be licking their lips for Gameweek 10.

Pochettino’s men must travel to Anfield on Sunday afternoon to face the second-best attack in the Premier League and on the evidence of the last few weeks, that should result in plenty of opportunities for Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) and Sadio Mané (£11.8m).

As much as Spurs were suspect at the back against Watford, they also seemed largely devoid of ideas going forward.

Despite recent displays, both Son and Erik Lamela (£6.0m) found themselves on the bench while Christian Eriksen (£8.8m) missed out through injury (dead leg).

Dele Alli (£8.4m) and Lucas Moura (£7.1m) were deployed behind Harry Kane (£10.9m) in 3-4-2-1 formation but neither one of them troubled Ben Foster (£4.8m) in the first half. That said, Kane owners might feel a bit aggrieved not to see Spurs awarded a penalty for Roberto Pereyra‘s (£5.7m) foul on Rose in the penalty box.

Kane did not offer a great deal against Watford but might have had a penalty

Pochettino did change things around at half-time, moving away from the three-man defence to bring Son on and switch to a more attacking formation, Sánchez making way.

“We thought there was going to be two strikers. In the end, it was [Roberto] Pereyra and at the beginning [Danny] Welbeck and some space on the side. In the beginning, they didn’t do that well enough, and of course we were 1-0 down, so we put another striker on and I think from that moment we pushed them and especially at the end of the second half we put them under pressure. Then I think if we had scored a little earlier…” – Toby Alderweireld

The South Korean did add some energy and urgency to Spurs’ attack, forcing Foster to tip a fierce shot onto the crossbar.

That was, by far, Spurs’ best chance to equalise and it must be said that when they eventually pulled level, there was an element of fortune about the goal.

Foster and substitute Kiko Femenía (£4.3m) got in each other’s way when attempting to deal with a loose ball in the Watford penalty area, allowing Alli to pounce.

He controlled the ball with his shoulder, as confirmed by a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) check, and slotted home with ease.

However, without the stroke of luck that fell Spurs’ way, they perhaps would not have scored on Saturday afternoon.

Son added some energy to Spurs when he came on but did not start the game

It does seem clear that the defensive issues are hindering the side’s ability to attack with confidence. Until the back-line can improve, they are likely to hold back the Fantasy potential of Kane, Son and the like.

In light of recent results, conceding an early goal naturally made for a less than conducive atmosphere at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Pochettino himself mentioned after the match that, while he understood the fans’ frustration, it did make life harder for his team.

It will certainly be interesting to see what the reaction to these comments will be from the supporters.

“We were nervous. Of course, the atmosphere wasn’t in the way that you love to play in and it wasn’t the best. I understand of course the fans and everyone. It’s not easy. I was a professional player in this type of situation and it is so difficult to play. Of course, Watford defended well and were very strong, never gave the space to us to be clear and have chances to score.” – Mauricio Pochettino

Whether Spurs can break out of the rut they are in may well depend on how they perform against Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday evening, as they really need to get a positive result in front of their own supporters.

There was an element of fortune about Spurs’ equalising goal

However, their upcoming schedule, although daunting and discouraging from an FPL perspective, could be the key to easing the pressure on the players and manager.

Three of their next four Premier League matches are on the road, Liverpool up next before Everton (Gameweek 11) and West Ham (Gameweek 13) host Pochettino’s men.

Sometimes, teams such as Spurs, especially in their present condition, might benefit from some prolonged time away from a frustrated atmosphere at home.

No player registered more attacking returns away from home than Kane last season, so it is possible that he could help them in that respect.

However, it is still hard to guarantee that Spurs will become a viable FPL side any time soon, given that they are yet to show improvement either in defence or attack.

Flores’ side came close to a first win of the season at Spurs

By contrast, it must be highlighted that there are continued improvements from Watford.

After losing five of their first seven matches this season, the Hornets are now unbeaten in two.

From Gameweek 8 onwards they have now conceded just once and, as already mentioned, it was not exactly something Quique Sanchez Flores could have legislated for.

For the second match in a row, the Watford manager went with a back-three, which appeared to have the desired effect once again, his side going very close to back-to-back clean sheets.

After Sebastien Prödl‘s (£4.0m) hamstring injury against Sheffield United, Craig Dawson (£4.8m) played between Christian Kabasele (£4.3m) and Craig Cathcart (£4.4m).

“We’ve had a good week’s training, the lads have shown lots of effort in training and worked really hard and you could see that in today’s performance. As a team, the confidence has grown from today and hopefully, we can take that into the next game.” – Craig Dawson

Whether Watford can add to their clean sheet count in the coming weeks probably still remains somewhat unlikely as they have Bournemouth (home), Chelsea (home), Norwich (away) and Burnley (home) coming up, but it is worth Fantasy managers knowing that they may not be quite the whipping boys we thought they were a few weeks ago.

“Little by little we are (building) the philosophy with the players and little by little we are becoming more competitive. We need to win and today we were close, with the circumstances of the match and the opportunities we had, so it’s a pity that we couldn’t get the three points.” – Quique Sanchez Flores

Janmaat picked up an injury but had a good game at Spurs

Fantasy managers may also want to keep an eye on Janmaat, who got a 12-point haul in Gameweek 9.

That came from an assist, a clean sheet and maximum bonus, as the former Newcastle defender came off injured before Spurs’ late equaliser.

If Janmaat can shirk that yellow flag then his price, Watford’s slightly improved defensive prospects and his more advanced role as a wing-back in the new 3-5-2 system, could bring him into consideration.

Meanwhile, left-back Jose Holebas (£4.7m), who remains on set pieces but is a little more expensive, is now suspended for one match having picked up his fifth yellow card of the season at Spurs.

Deulofeu offered a decent attacking outlet for Watford against Spurs

As already mentioned, there were chances for Watford to win this match, with both Deulofeu and Pereyra causing problems in a two-man strike pairing.

The former probably should have been awarded a penalty in the second half after Vertonghen fouled him.

Deulofeu was able to get around the back of Spurs’ defence on more than one occasion, going well clear in the second half.

It took a last-ditch sliding block from Aurier to deny Pereyra after Deulofeu had squared him the ball.

“We don’t deserve this with this group of players, we have trained well and we showed today what we can do. We have to fight because it’s a long time without a win in the Premier League and today we deserved the three points. It’s a really good point at this type of stadium, but if you see the highlights or the whole game you see that we could have got the three points.” – Gerard Deulofeu

Tottenham Hotspur XI (3-4-2-1): Gazzaniga; Vertonghen, D Sánchez (Son 46′), Alderweireld; Rose, Winks (Ndombele 70′), Sissoko, Aurier; Alli, Moura (Lamela 63′); Kane.

Watford XI (3-5-2): Foster; Cathcart, Dawson, Kabasele, Janmaat (Kiko Femenía 71′); Holebas, Doucouré, Chalobah, Cleverley, Janmaat; Pereyra (Hughes 84′), Welbeck (Deulofeu 4′).

    Why always Kane?

    I'm in quite a pickle here. 2 cents from anyone? Thank you!

    Pope (Button)
    TAA - Otamendi - Lund (Soy - Pieters)

    0.5m itb. 2 FT.

    I want KDB in and having trouble with Pukki/Cantwell future. They're frustrating but hard to find better value. Any thoughts? 🙂

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅

      Salah out KDB in. Sorted.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        That's one way to do it. Seems mental to have neither Salah nor Mané tho.

        1. AllINeedIsCoffee
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 4 days ago

          But then again Sterling might not be essential in a couple of gws so could transfer him out for either of them.

          1. ZeBestee
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 4 days ago

            Keep Sterling for next 2.

          Mate in work.. has neither sterling mane or salah.. and is sitting top 60 OR in the world..
          I keep waiting for his lack of those players to bite.. but it's not happened yet..
          Auba to play tonight so he could end the end night even higher!

    2. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years

      Anyone to KDB.

  3. ZeBestee
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 4 days ago

    If Mendy is rested on Tuesday, is it worth bringing him in for Aurier?

    Or given his easily breakable nature, avoid? Next 2 are delicious.

    1. Aleksei
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 days ago

      I think the most valuable assets of Pep's roulette at the moment are KDB and Dilva

    2. Bumbaclot
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 days ago

      I would stay so far clear of city wing backs

      1. ZeBestee
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 4 days ago

        He was quite good on Saturday, if he stays fit then he is the best City defender by far.

    3. Riders of Yohan

      Not yet, wait for consistency

        Yeah, thats a sensible approach.

      I would keep Pukki for 1 more gameweek if you can, can see him getting a goal at home against United

      1. Bumbaclot
        • 9 Years

        I’ll try but might have to get rid. Sick of him now

          Sick of goal per week on average? 🙂

          Form does not look good tho, I'll agree with that.

    2. Riders of Yohan

      B or D. Would normally say B if not for Europa

  6. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 4 days ago

    One thing is for sure, Cantwell needs to go and D. Silva looked damn fine over the weekend.

    He just seems to be such a good option at his price. FML.

    Hello Silva, goodbey Blankwell.

    There goes my 'no City' approach 😮

    1. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 days ago

      DSilva will be excellent value if BSilva ban goes ahead. As of now, he is also prone to rotation like others.

    2. Aleksei
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Salah + Cantwell -> KDB + Maddison?

    The RMT tool does not approve but it looks like a good move. Would probably get Mané or Salah in for Sterling after the next 2 gws have passed.

    I also have Pukki but got bigger fish to catch right now I think.

    1. puhd
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 days ago

      Salah might be Ok, I would keep.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        I would be able to get him back instead of Sterling if I'll so desire. My concerns are with getting KDB in ASAP.

        1. puhd
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 4 days ago

          You got Sterling?

          1. puhd
            • 5 Years

              Keeping him for Villa and Southampton but after that might not be the best option going forward.

    Dusan Tadic making the Ballon D'or nominees list is strong evidence that stats can predict future success.

      Keeps Sterling for another week*

    2. bench boost for every gamew…

    Hugo Lloris has committed more errors leading to goals across the past three Premier League seasons (10) than any other player...

    Yet he's included in 30-man Ballon d’Or shortlist. Another fine example of awards being given on reputation, not actual form.

    1. Giggs Boson

      It was probably the because of his performance at the World Cup.

    ok guys looking at options here to save my Titanic

    TIA

    Pope Button
    TAA Soy Mings Aurier* Lund
    KDB Salah* Mount Gendo Cantwell
    Kun Haller* Tammy

    1FT, 1.4 itb

    A) Cantwell to CHO
    B) Haller to Vardy, Aurier to Tomori (last move provides 0.2)
    C) Haller to Vardy, Salah to Sterling (last move provides 0.4)

    1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Well if you're going to name your team My Titanic...

      B

    2. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 days ago

      Or, do you have funds to drop Aurier to 3.9-4.2 fodder and upgrade both Haller to Vardy and Cantwell to CHO?

      1. DMP
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Or this.

      1. ALI_G
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 4 days ago

        Thanks both

        I think I will go for cheap def, leaves the option of CHO week after

        1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 4 days ago

          I think that's what i'd do. No need for 5 half-decent defenders, as you'll be benching money/potential points each week.

          How do Mings and Lundstram rotate?

  20. DMP
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 4 days ago

    Guys, best move here?

    A) Mcginn -> James (Play 3-5-2)
    B) Save FT. To sideways, bench Mcginn.
    C) Other suggestion.

    Ryan
    Robbo Ota Tomori Lundstram
    Salah Sterling(c) Kdb Mount
    Wilson Abraham

    Mcginn Soy Greenwood

    Haller was involved in 22 aerial duels against West Ham... that man is a human battering ram.

    He's going to love playing against the low blocks of Sheffield and Newcastle.

    1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 days ago

      How many did he win?

      1. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 4 days ago

        10. Not bad considering he's against CBs most of the time.

        Putting himself in there for the challenges says a lot about his physicality and aggression.

        1. Giggs Boson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 4 days ago

          He's won more aerial duels than any other striker actually. Not the best percentage rate, but volume won is arguably more important for our purposes.

          1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 year, 4 days ago

            He is quite tall.

    27pts, Auba captain to go.

    Not happy with that but at least I’m still in the game tonight! Haway the PEA!

    1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 days ago

      I'll see your Auba and raise you 27pts, Lundstram to go.

    Mount sitting like this at the moment in my team

    CP 6.8, SP 6.6, PP 6.5

    Will he add me 0.1 if he rises today or tomorrow?

      SP would be 6.7

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year

        That is perfect 🙂

    have 3.6m itb to invest, would it be worth taking a hit to upgrade anyone?

    2 FTs

    1) Son + Aurier - > Martial / Mahrez /D.Silva + Mendy/Ota/Boly
    2) Son -> Martial / Mahrez / D.Silva

  26. Marc Jobling
    • 8 Years

    Salah, Sterling, Mount, Cantwell
    Aguero, Wilson, Abraham

    The problem is that, to get KDB in, it needs to be for Sterling. Can you ever see a Sterling to KDB move going well? It'd feel horrific.

    Could wait another week but looks like he's rising again.

    Q1) If you still had double pool defence in the form of VVD & Robbo, what would you do?

    Q2) What to do with Otamendi keep or sell?

    1. Slouch87
      • 5 Years

      Keep
      Sell

      Lundstram obviously.

      1. Dribbles
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 4 days ago

        I just sold him last night and i payed 4m so reluctant to spend the 4.6 or whatever he is now. Cheers though.

    Digne to Tomori

    Ceballos to David Silva?

    Would give a pretty City heavy midfield of Mount Sterling Kdb Dilva?

  30. SomeoneKnows
    • 4 Years

    A) McGinn > Maddison
    B) Wilson + McGinn > Vardy + Hudson-Odoi
