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′).

        I'll try..

    2. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Vardy or auba

  4. HurriKane
    • 8 Years
    12 months, 4 days ago

    Case for Vardy

    - Great Form: Since Rodgers arrival Vardy has scored 15 Premier League goals - two more than any other player.

    - Great fixtures: (sou cry ARS bha EVE WAT avl NOR) in next 8

    - Nailed on and on Pens

    - No midweek European games for Leicester means he'll be relatively fresh

    Honestly cant see any downside in joining Vardy Party. Thoughts?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 months, 4 days ago

      Pray he scores his 1 shot a game every week. Last season he was getting regular chances and scoring appropriately but he is getting nothing this season

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        12 months, 4 days ago

        Vardy is a stat buster. He's clinical and doesnt need too many chances to score.

        Saying that expect likes of Maddison and Tielemens to provide more chances in coming weeks

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      12 months, 4 days ago

      No brainer !

    3. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 months, 4 days ago

      Vardy’s stats are quite poor. Still seems a good pick though.

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        12 months, 4 days ago

        Doesnt mind having poor stats if he keeps on delivering consistently. He's proved that over last couple of seasons to bang in goals defying stats

        He's already involved in 7 goals. Tammy has great stats but vardy is involved in only 1 less goal than Tammy

    4. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 months, 4 days ago

      My reservation would be that price tag and the cheaper options also firing and with nice fixtures but if you play three up top think he's a great shout

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        12 months, 4 days ago

        Cheaper options firing? Pukki Haller Tammy has all been declining while wilson is a troll who'll stop scoring as soon as you get him.

        Dont trust ings as well with his injury record. That leaves with Jimenez who is a good option

        1. Slouch87
          • 5 Years

            1 goal in last 4 pl matches is not considered declining ?

            Lol. What are you smoking.

            1. The Dance
              • 9 Years
              12 months, 4 days ago

              Then boom! Two goals or hat trick

            2. Slitherene
              • 2 Years
              12 months, 4 days ago

              He has to work on his conversion rate, has been very unlucky. Passes the eye test every time, stats also don't look bad. Not on a decline by any means.

      Yeah - only won two league titles in a row - absolute joke.

    Tielemans or Maddison?

    1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 months, 4 days ago

      This needs answering. Heat maps is where I'd look. Tielemans started the year much deeper, not sure about now.

    2. Ini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      12 months, 4 days ago

      Maddison although I’d avoid both.

    3. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      12 months, 4 days ago

      Tielemans offers something different at a good price. Been a big fan since he joined. But unlikely to get as many points week in week out, so need to make the £0.8m count.

    Who will have a greater effect on non owners ranks tonight, auba or lundstram?

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

      As an Arsenal supporter but a Lundstram owner I'm conflicted. Hoping for a hatrick from Chambers and a mere brace from Lundstram.

      1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        12 months, 4 days ago

        Chambers essential

      2. Slouch87
        • 5 Years
        12 months, 4 days ago

        Could be a few issues with those wishes.

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

          I dream big.

          How's the Scott matchup faring this week?

          1. Slouch87
            • 5 Years
            12 months, 4 days ago

            We have a bit of work to do .
            15 points behind .
            Us Lundstram x2 , Auba , Ceballos
            Them Pepe , Saka

      3. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 months, 4 days ago

        In honestly, both being 30% owned, and with all the benchings this week, a score from either will be a blow for non-owners.

        1. Slouch87
          • 5 Years
          12 months, 4 days ago

          2 points for each.

        2. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          12 months, 4 days ago

          Yeah, can see lundstram coming off every bench but mine. At least auba owners opted in.

    2. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      12 months, 4 days ago

      Every Lundstram point will add 0.5 points to the average while every point for Auba is only 0.33. So Lundy hurts your rank more

      1. The Overthinker
        • 3 Years
        12 months, 4 days ago

        Cue a lundstram 1 pointer and auba 9 points

  12. Wirbelwind
    • 3 Years
    12 months, 4 days ago

    A) Pukki -> Jiminez
    B) Pukki / Mount / Ota -> Vardy / CHO / Rico // Downside: convert a main player to a bench option
    C) Keep everyone

    Wud u downgrade Auba OR Sterling to fund the move - OTA + Pieters ➡ TAA + Robbo

    Auba ➡ Jimenez
    Sterling :arrow:Martial

      Tough, but I wouldn't touch martial. Held him for something like four weeks having been promised he'd be back from his knock. Poor guy always gets niggles and struggles to shrug them off and United haven't scored more than one since the first day.

      1. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Auba to Jimenez wud be sensible?

      No chance.

      I've personally not been convinced on having both TAA and Robbo, although they easily provide the highest attacking chances.

      Tough call really, I would stay put with Sterling/Aubameyang for the next 2 games.

      1. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        12 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah this is for the GW13 onwards - I am just deciding on which premium players I should downgrade?

        1. nerd_is_the_werd
          • 1 Year
          12 months, 4 days ago

          I would keep Aubameyang (less rotation risk).

  18. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    12 months, 4 days ago

    After all tranfers made this is what she will look like by GW11

    Pope Button
    TAA Tierney Cancelo Lund Dunk
    Salah Mane Dilva Djenepo McGinn
    Vardy Jimenez Tammy

    Could change but what is planned.

    Hoping for 0.2 to pop up from Mount an Rico in order to do McGinn to Grealish. McGinn has grown on me though so might just stick with him.

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Walker will play more than cancelo

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        12 months, 4 days ago

        We will have to see. Cancelo's performance over the weekend was pretty damn good.

        Walker performances have not been all that great.

        Bit of leap in value though. I might keep I dunno. Got my eye on the wolves strikers and Gerard D at Watford.

      Yes. Except for the Saka thing. Don’t really mind too about about that though

  24. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    12 months, 4 days ago

    Emery really is a top tier piss boiler. Holding, Tierney, Torreira, Ceballos, Lacazette all benched. Ozil not in squad.

    1. Arteta
      • 5 Years
      12 months, 4 days ago

      Decent bench.

    2. SH
      • 5 Years

      Playing pretty much the same team as last week except Ceballos>Willcock

      1. Forza Papac
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Arsenal fans were hoping to see most of the players I mentioned starting tonight

        1. Slouch87
          • 5 Years
          12 months, 4 days ago

          So you were expecting 4 or 5 changes in one game ?
          Reality check required.

          1. Forza Papac
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            12 months, 4 days ago

            If Torreira, Tierney and Holding started from that lot that would be three changes.

            1. Slouch87
              • 5 Years
              12 months, 4 days ago

              You were talking Lacazette too . That's 4.

          2. Forza Papac
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            12 months, 4 days ago

            Ceballos started the last game

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      12 months, 4 days ago

      Ok, that changes my plan on getting Tierney in.

      Emery as bad if not worse than Pep.

    4. Slouch87
      • 5 Years
      12 months, 4 days ago

      What did you expect ?

      1. Forza Papac
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        12 months, 4 days ago

        Some of those players to start.

  25. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    12 months, 4 days ago

    Hope - Lundstram 15pter, Auba blank and subbed for Laca before 60.

    Expectation based on my season - Auba hattrick.

    I took out Auba for Kun on WC last minute. I hope my expectations are wrong

    1. Slouch87
      • 5 Years
      12 months, 4 days ago

      The Auba hattrick is closer to realism than being based on your season.

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        12 months, 4 days ago

        Pls no.

        Blades have been relatively solid defensively. That’s the thing I’m clinging too and was part of my thinking behind going for Kun - obviously not anticipating the benching. That and his next opponents are that leaky either

        1. Slouch87
          • 5 Years
          12 months, 4 days ago

          I think they will concede 1 or 2.

          1. Top Lad Dakes.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            As long as no Auba involvement... and Lundstram scores 😉

        didnt realise he was that low, but some wildcarders got him in. In places like ffs players like Laca can be popular but that isnt refelcted in the mainstream, that 1.5% is serious players probably, or the majority of them are and they considered him a good differential. 1.5% is still around 100k managers

        1. EMBOLOFAN
