Son keeps place for Spurs as Dyche freshens up Burnley defence

Son Heung-min (£9.6m) retains his starting place for Spurs in Gameweek 12 following his sending off at Everton last time out.

The South Korean’s challenge led to a horror injury for Andre Gomes (£5.3m) but he had his red card rescinded in the week.

Following a two-goal display in the Champions League, Son is back on the left-hand side of Spurs attack as they host Sheffield United.

Those searching for a budget forward with regular game-time to rely on will be encouraged by Lys Mousset‘s (£4.9m) third start in the last four Gameweeks for the Blades.

Despite a 21-point haul in Gameweek 11, John Lundstram (£4.8m) is the sixth-most benched option for Gameweek 12.

Following an uncharacteristic defeat to Sheffield United in Gameweek 11, Sean Dyche has made two changes to the Burnley defence for the visit of West Ham.

Full-backs Erik Pieters (£4.7m) and Matt Lowton (£4.5m) both drop to the bench allowing Charlie Taylor (£4.2m) and Phil Bardsley (£4.3m) to come in on the left and right respectively.

However, the most important development for the Clarets sees Chris Wood (£6.2m) return to the starting XI for the first time since Gameweek 9.

Jay Rodriguez (£5.7m) drops down to the bench and Ashley Barnes (£6.3m) holds his place in the side.

Opponents West Ham have also made changes after losing to Newcastle last time out, with a specific focus on the right-hand side.

Ryan Fredericks (£4.5m) comes back in for Pablo Zabaleta (£4.3m) while Andriy Yarmolenko (£6.0m) drops to the bench also.

Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m), who has now started three in a row, shifts from the middle onto the right, with Pablo Fornals (£6.0m) coming into the side for Yarmolenko.

There are also plenty of changes at St Mary’s Stadium as Southampton host Everton.

Moussa Djenepo (£5.2m) makes his first start since Gamewee 5 while Cédric (£4.8m) is handed the right-back berth for the first time since Gameweek 6.

Following recent criticism, Michael Keane (£5.4m) drops to the Everton bench with Mason Holgate (£4.4m) coming in alongside Yerry Mina (£5.4m).

Alex Iwobi (£5.8m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.8m) are also among the substitutes this afternoon with Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.5m) and Cenk Tosun (£5.7m) occupying the number 10 and centre-forward roles respectively.

Thankfully for Fantasy managers, there are not too many team news updates from Newcastle this afternoon.

The Magpies are unchanged from the side that beat West Ham last time out, while Lewis Cook (£5.0m) is the only alteration for Bournemouth, Jefferson Lerma (£4.8m) missing out through suspension.

Burnley XI: Pope; C Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Bardsley; McNeil, Westwood, Cork, Hendrick; A Barnes, Wood.

West Ham XI: Roberto; Cresswell, Balbuena, Diop, Fredericks; Rice, Noble; Anderson, Fornals, Snodgrass; Haller.

Bournemouth XI: Ramsdale; Rico, Aké, S Cook, A Smith; Fraser, Billing, L Cook, H Wilson; J King, C Wilson.

Southampton XI: McCarthy; Bednarek, Vestergaard, J Stephens, Cédric; Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong; Djenepo, Redmond; Ings.

Everton XI: Pickford; Digne, Mina, Holgate, Sidibé; Schneiderlin, Davies; Richarlison, Sigurdsson, Walcott; Tosun.

Spurs XI: Gazzaniga; B Davies, D Sánchez, Dier, Aurier; Ndombèlé, Sissoko; Son, Alli, Lo Celso; Kane.

Sheff Utd XI: D Henderson; O’Connell, Egan, Basham; Stevens, Fleck, Norwood, Lundstram, Baldock; Mousset, McGoldrick.

      Another great result and could have easily won it. Great stuff from The Blades ( and benched Lundstram ☺).

        Yup, so happy VAR didn't take it away from us. I'm honestly thinking bringing Baldock in next week lol

          Proving a very tough side to beat. Next home fixture against mediocre mid table Man U should be easy . ☺

              322 would be:

              McGoldrick
              Aurier Son

              BPS are close though.

    Do we need spurs coverage against West ham?
    I'm genuinely worried as a fan, not necessarily because of spurs 🙂

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      After watching Spurs, you need 3 West Ham and VAR turned off!

    2. Zladan
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Not really. Spurs aren’t great and could be managerless.

    3. fr3d

      West Ham turn up in derbies

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

    1. fr3d

      1. pundit of punts

        Can't resist Laca with Soton up next.
