Everton and Spurs serve up dismal game as Gomes suffers horror injury

Everton 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur

  • Goals: Cenk Tosun (£5.7m) | Dele Alli (£8.4m)
  • Assists: Lucas Digne (£5.9m)| Son Heung-min (£9.6m)
  • Bonus: Serge Aurier (£4.8m) x3, Alli x2, Digne x1

Everton confirmed on Monday that Andre Gomes (£5.3m) has undergone successful surgery after the Portuguese midfielder suffered a “fracture-dislocation to his right ankle” in the Toffees’ 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

It was a 79th-minute tackle from Son Heung-min (£9.6m) that ultimately led to the hideous-looking injury, with Gomes subsequently trapping his leg in the turf as he collided with Serge Aurier (£4.8m).

Son received a straight red card for his challenge which, viewed in isolation, was of the cynical nature rather than anything too malicious.

The 7.1%-owned Spurs midfielder will, pending an appeal, now miss the Lilywhites’ next three league matches, returning for the Gameweek 15 clash with Manchester United in early December.

Mauricio Pochettino joined the chorus of players, managers, fans and pundits expressing sympathy for Gomes but voiced his disappointment at the decision to dismiss Son, with referee Martin Atkinson seemingly having been poised to book the South Korea international before the consequences of his tackle became apparent.

The visitors had been leading 1-0 at that stage and Everton went on to press their numerical advantage by scoring an equaliser late in stoppage time.

Asked if Spurs would appeal the red card, Pochettino said:

I don’t know. I don’t know what will happen now, the club will see if possible or not. What we cannot change is all that happened after the red card.

We are going to talk about the VAR because the VAR need to check if it was a bad tackle from Sonny and judge the action, not judge what happened after that was very bad luck for Andre. We feel very disappointed with this type of situation on the VAR. VAR to help the referee. I’m confused more with the situation. I was talking to the referee and they need help. They need to go check on the screen. They have the screen: why not?

At the end the decision because everything changed. I think the game was under control for Tottenham and I think we really believed that we would win the game at the end. The problem is playing with one less. And then we concede a goal playing with one less and it was very, very tough. It was completely unfair for Sonny and completely unfair for Tottenham.

It has since been reported that Spurs will try to get the dismissal overturned and it’ll be interesting to see what the response from the Football Association will be.

The early signs weren’t too positive, with the FA having seemingly doubled-down on Atkinson’s decision to send off the South Korean attacker when releasing a statement just after full-time:

The red card for Son was for endangering the safety of a player which happened as a consequence of his initial challenge.

Son had earlier registered his seventh attacking return in the last eight Gameweeks, teeing up Dele Alli (£8.4m) for the game’s opening goal.

The match had been drifting towards a goalless draw at that point, with the two teams serving up one of the most forgettable encounters of the 2019/20 campaign.

Everton and Spurs have struggled for form this season and there was nervousness from both teams at Goodison Park, with Fantasy managers given little incentive to invest in either side – especially in attack.

Spurs were almost non-existent going forward, registering only four shots all evening, and even their goal stemmed from a misplaced pass from Alex Iwobi (£5.8m) rather than anything they carved out themselves.

The unavailability of Harry Kane (£10.8m) was a mitigating factor, with Lucas Moura (£7.0m) proving to be an ineffectual spearhead in his absence.

The England striker missed out with illness, with Pochettino saying ahead of kick-off:

He and his family got a virus and started to feel bad on Friday night. It was impossible for him to train on Saturday and now he cannot play.

Christian Eriksen (£8.7m) was poor yet again and, with Son suspended next weekend, owners of John Lundstram (£4.8m) and co might be growing increasingly confident of a clean sheet when Sheffield United visit north London in Gameweek 12.

Alli’s goal was at least a positive and there may be a modest bit of Fantasy interest in the former MK Dons man, who has now completed three successive 90-minute run-outs in the league and scored two goals in that time.

Everton weren’t much better, with Richarlison (£7.9m) – again leading the line – carrying what little threat the hosts posed.

The Brazilian twice tested Paulo Gazzaniga (£4.5m) and fired wide in the first half, later being denied a penalty when tumbling in the box.

That was one of three claims for a spot-kick refuted by VAR, with a challenge on Son and an Alli handball not punished.

Everton’s Fantasy assets seem to be in a “don’t buy, don’t sell” limbo at present – the Toffees next face two of the most obliging defences in the Premier League and owners of Richarlison et al may be reluctant to part ways before matches against Southampton and Norwich.

An awful run of fixtures from Gameweeks 14-18, coupled with some indifferent form, may deter many non-owners from venturing near the Toffees despite their upcoming double-header, however.

There were some success stories at Goodison, with Aurier’s 88th-minute substitution meaning that he not only banked a clean sheet before Everton’s equaliser but also claimed maximum bonus points to go with it.

Lucas Digne (£5.9m), meanwhile, was staring down the barrel of a blank before his superb volleyed cross was nodded in by substitute Cenk Tosun (£5.7m) for the hosts’ late leveller.

Indeed if any Fantasy assets could take credit from Sunday’s game, it was the two defences – although the relative solidity of Spurs and Everton’s backlines, who have only two clean sheets between them in the last nine Gameweeks, was aided by the toothlessness of their opponents in attack.

Everton XI (4-3-3): Pickford; Sidibe, Holgate, Mina, Digne; Davies (Calvert-Lewin 83′), Gomes (Sigurdsson 84′), Delph; Walcott (Tosun 68′), Richarlison, Iwobi. 

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Gazzaniga; Aurier (Foyth 88′), Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies; Ndombele (Lo Celso 73′), Sissoko; Son, Eriksen (Sessegnon 90′), Alli; Lucas.

    Pope / McGovern
    TAA / Soy / Lund / Burn / Rico
    Sterling / KdB / Mane / Mount / Cantwell
    Vardy / Tammy / Connolly

    1 FT, 1.1 ITB

    Any advice? Tempted to either roll the FT or address Pope or Burn. Burnley have been poor for cleansheets and Burn has horrific fixtures

  2. Nas
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Don’t wanna burn a FT but don’t have any fires to put out. Think I’ll swap mings.
    A) Willems
    B) Cahill
    C) Janmaat

    Rest of team
    Pope
    Trent soy lund Rico
    Mane sterling mount
    Auba vardy abraham

    Whoever I buy will likely be rotating with Rico or first bench most weeks anyway so I’m looking more long term around Christmas/new year when we will have rotation. Cahill seems most nailed for that period and with the best fixtures but Willems seems to have more upside. Janmaat is only there for money saved

    1. Nas
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Bench is cantwell dendo and mings

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      You have a pretty large fire to put out in Aubameyang. Doesn't look like one, but that value is affecting your entire team.

    3. Phil's Stamps

      A

    1. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      No

  4. Marc Jobling
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    I think I'm aiming for:

    Salah/Mane, Sterling, Martial, Mount
    Vardy, Abraham, Jimenez

    Does it look good?

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Looks good

    2. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      How long will it take to get there?

      1. Marc Jobling
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        3 transfers - out go Aguero, De Bruyne and Cantwell.

    3. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      What do think to this?

      Pope
      TAA Soyuncu Tomori
      Salah KDB Martial Mount
      Vardy Abraham Jiminez

      Button Cantwell Chambers Hanley 2.6m itb

      1. Marc Jobling
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I like it. The only absentees to worry about are Mane and Sterling but we can't have them all! It's a shame you missed out on Lundstram.

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I know mate, didn't like his fixtures but got that wrong, yeah upgrade KDB with the 2.6m, but tbh I'm going to get Robbo

    4. Energetics
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      This is what I’m going for except, KDB rather than Sterling.

      Then a back line of TAA, Robbo a and Soy/Lundy/Rico

    5. Jay Arell
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Thoughts on Maddison VS Martial?

    6. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      That's what I have, but with KDB instead of Martial.

    7. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I’ve got currently;

      Tielemans Mount Salah Sterling
      Vardy Jiminez Abraham

  5. Noregretz
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Looking to fit Vardy in my team

    2FT 0.5 ITB
    Wilson > Vardy = - £1m

    I’d have to downgrade one of these to save that milli :
    Pope (button)
    VVD, Soy, Lund (Simpson)
    Salah, Sterling, KDB, Mount, Donk
    Wilson, Abraham, Jimi

    But Who to who ???

  6. No Professionals
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    How did all the big clubs allow leicester to sign Tielemans? He'd get in every team in the league barring city in my opinion.

    1. andres
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Where did they get him from?

      1. No Professionals
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Monaco

    2. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Who would he get in for in Pool's team? He's played very well in 3 games from 11.

      1. No Professionals
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I think he played well on loan last year, have watched a decent amount of their games and has always played well.

      2. No Professionals
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Henderson

        1. GreennRed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          More skilful than Henderson but not as PL savvy as him just yet. Klopp wouldn't drop Henderson for a young lad just yet but he's one to watch.

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Easily. I'd play Tielemans ahead of Henderson.

        Wijnaldum, Tielemans, Fabinho midfield 3.

    3. Dthinger
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      who knows? weird transfers like that happen all the time. Rui Patricio at Wolves is an example.

    4. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Tielemans has opportunity I believe but wanted to sign for Leicester

    5. Trophé Mourinho
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Tielemans isnt that good is he??

      1. No Professionals
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        He's good, and generally teams have average midfield

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          1 month, 8 days ago

          lets hope he doesnt go missing in games where they arent banging them home

      2. GreennRed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        He's very good but needs to get more consistent.

    6. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Maybe their opinion is different?

      1. No Professionals
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        They must not like good midfielders then

        1. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Yeah, that must be it......

          1. No Professionals
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Thought so

    7. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      They had a good setup for him already and promised him play time, and unlike other dumb players he valued that more than a pointless wage rise and an uncertain starting spot.

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I read that no other clubs came forward with concrete interest, could be wrong of course.

    8. Would Ed Woodward
      1 month, 8 days ago

      We thought that we could get Longstaff for cheaper I think but then Newcastle wanted more than Tielemans went for, excellent work as usual.

    9. WWF
      • 2 Years

      Allow??

  7. Bakra
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Last night I did

    Sterling Diop 3.9def Pepe Auba
    To
    Mane Robertson TAA Martial Jiminez

    16 point hit feels great.

    1. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I couldn't have done that before liverpool have city

    2. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Looks good long term but Auba could punish you with those fixtures coming up after Leicester

    3. Sloane426
      1 month, 8 days ago

      This is why I don’t take people’s advice on here.

    4. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      It looks good on the screen, until the game week starts and you realise you're screwed before it starts

    5. Trophé Mourinho
      1 month, 8 days ago

      16 point is funny, but i dont hate the moves. And they are better, that said sure Auba and Sterling can hurt you tho. You just have to distance yourself from them, no matter what sterling or auba score from now on, you didnt have them ok. Soon as you start regretting decisions like that is when things start going even worse

    6. ...al - Come out to the coa…
      • 10 Years

      Gota do it sometimes tbh

    7. Dthinger
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      You took a 16 point hit to bring in two defenders who face Man City? and got rid of an in-form striker who plays SOU NOR BHA and WHU in his next five matches?

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        1 month, 8 days ago

        long term they arent bad moves, and TAA and Robbo are essentially wingers.

  8. FDMS All Starz
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    After the pool city game sell sterling for who? Salah12.3 or Mane12.0? If Salah becomes fully fit and is on pens, is the 0.3 or 0.2 by next week worth it? Or just go with the in form Mane? Feels like Salah captain is almost a differential in the coming weeks

    1. WWF
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Prefer Mane but it's a risk

  9. Cahill17
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Which two should I play this week,

    A) Trossard
    B) Soy
    C) Rico
    D) Tomori

    1. Nightf0x
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      a or c and d

      1. Cahill17
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Thank you! I might go Trossard because I feel he has more upside

    2. WWF
      • 2 Years

      A B !!! Good luck !!!

  10. Nightf0x
    • 4 Years

    1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I’d rather have all 3 Chelsea than 2 with Jiménez personally, can see the idea tho!! Could definitely work mate!!

    2. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Wouldn't touch pulisic personally. Haven't been impressed by general play.

      1. clodhopper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Pulsic looks good

      2. Dthinger
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        looks like a good player, but I'm not convinced he starts consistently

  11. King Henrik
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Sorry Repost

    2fts and 2.6m in the bank.
    Any advice for this team ?

    Roberto

    McGovern McGinn Soyuncu Greenwood

    1. FDMS All Starz

      You have 2 Soyuncu, team looks good, maybe change the GK to either Henderson or Ryan

      1. King Henrik
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Oops. The Soyuncu on the bench should be Kelly !

    Anyone considering Kane??? Fantastic run of Captainable home fixtures right up to the new year now!!

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Dunno, knowing your team and rank I dont think its a risk worth taking, altho you probably have spare monies to afford him.
      But you dont haver Jimi, if Jimi matches him or even gets 2/3rds his returns then Jimi is the big winner.

      Kane would be more like for someone wanting to gain rank and captain him every week imo. might be wrong tho, he could be a great option ofc

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Very true mate, well said!! Jiménez was on my radar last week as a Wilson replacement but i opted to switch to 3-5-2 with Tielemans instead, I think I’m regretting it already but will most likely save transfers with week and if necessary switch it back to 3-4-3 with Jiménez and sacrifice Mount instead of Tielemans, I’m bored of owing him tbf and worry about Pulisic stealing all the points atm!!

    2. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Fixtures like watford and newcastle? I'm done with him.

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Yeah there is that mate tbf!! Haha I’m still smarting from Cardiff last year!! Maybe wise to stay well clear then!!

        1. No Professionals
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          He's a differential captain if you're playing catch up, which I am, still not going for him mind.

          1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Yeah true mate, definitely not the goal scoring force of a few seasons ago sadly!! Still a great player tho!! And he’s English!!!

            1. Trophé Mourinho
              1 month, 8 days ago

              he will be good this season, its just a matter of when. I think he has a good chance of getting the golden boot (I am spurs fan, probably bias)

              1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 8 days ago

                You’ve every reason to be mate he’s class!! I think he’s equally as capable as a number 10 Teddy Sheringham type player too myself, his link up play and passing ability falls under the raider imo as we just expect him to score goals but he’s got much more to his game than that!!

                1. Trophé Mourinho
                  1 month, 8 days ago

                  for sure, he is evolving as a player.

                    Big time mate!! He’s a class act on and off the pitch, such a great role model!!

    Anyone dropping Kdb for Maddison/Tielemans to upgrade elsewhere?

    Money is tight and the plan was to get Robertson after City next week, and possibly Maddison/Tielemans this week. They all struck gold this week and are rocketing up in price, so it would be a hit to drop KdB this week, and then get Robertson next week. Not sure if it's worth it now, I can take a .2 rise but it's tight AF

    I've a .2 buffer atm, but it might be too tight. It'll be crap if I'm priced out on Friday before the games are played and someone might rise .2 before hand

    Stick or twist?

      Id keep kdb

      Getting Robertson would have me bench, one of Rico/Soy/Lundy every week, which might not be wise!

      I like KdB too but no baps coming in, I reckon Robertson alone might outscore him

      Might wait, but there will be a .3 swing in it by this Sunday

      2. ...al - Come out to the coa…

        Hard call, I won't captain KdB, and Maddison could easily match him over the coming weeks... I also get a Liverpool defender that could smash it too, so it seems win win for a Leicester mid + Robertson, it's just for a hit over the two weeks. Very good chance I'll be priced out before they play

        Two best defensive teams and very consistent teams at scoring too.

    That frustrating feeling when you know the sensible thing to do is let a player rise in price while you have another falling...

      Too risky to do cho/Kun to mads/Jimi right? 🙂

        I don’t like losing value in players, one drop is acceptable two time to shift.

        1. baps sniffer

          Keeping faith has usually been bad decision. They tend to drop for reason.

      2. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Worst case scenario is that they both get injured? How likely is that?

    2. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Is it actually sensible? Naturally if you plan to keep the one dropping and are not buying the one rising 😉

    Pope Button

    Vardy Abraham Connolly

    1ft

    Not happy with my premiums. But they will surely start hauling soon wont they?

    Yarmo and Pope on the chopping block too.

    Save?

      Attack. Yet Robbo and TAA are not far behind Firmino as attacking assets 😉

        Because Luke and I have an affiliation with the site, people might want to know the pod is out, I posted it late last night so may have got lost in the FFS vortex and because i'm trying to encourage people to listen to it.

        I'm also really keen for anyone's feedback; whether people like it, what can be improved, if there's any segments / features people would like to see.
