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The South Korean’s challenge led to a horror injury for Andre Gomes (£5.3m) but he had his red card rescinded in the week.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

Newcastle XI: Dúbravka; Willems, Clark, Lascelles, Fernández, Yedlin; Saint-Maximin, Shelvey, Hayden, Almirón; Joelinton.

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.

        If he was really distraught he wouldnt play in solidarity until Gomes is back. Faker. Typical Spurs really.

      Pffft...poor post...

      I’m fairly certain I would have been distraught if i’d had a hand in doing that to somebody.

      Shocking.

    2. Holmes
      • 6 Years

  5. SUPER MOKH
    • 4 Years

    Cantwell > Pulisic, would you?

    Pope McGovern
    TAA Lund Cancelo Rico Kelly
    KDB Mane Maddison Mount Cantwell

    Back to basics Burnley!

    1. Syd.
      • 11 Years

      Can't see there being many Tories in Burnley

  8. Giggs Boson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    Think Saints v Everton might be the best 15:00 game to watch. Rest look low scoring.

    1. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      I am going to watch the Spurs game

      No interest in it just think it will be a good game

    2. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Relegation 6 pointer. Going to be bonkers.

    3. Rainer
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Digne wagon could gain serious pace with points today - Norwich next!

    4. Ask Yourself
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Most entertaining agreed (although Everton do bring excitement down a lot)
      Spurs vs SHU will be most tactically interesting though

    5. jia you jia you
      • 3 Years

      Haha see below 🙂

  9. Jafooli

    Big prizes to be won, if you get them all right.

  10. jia you jia you
    • 3 Years

    Time to watch Richarlison's audition for my armband v NOR! Prob the most interesting 3pm KO regardless.

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      I'll enjoy watching Lundstram's marauding runs

    2. fr3d
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Captaincy looks tricky next. Good shout!

      1. jia you jia you
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        between him and Sterling for me... he needs to impress today though!

  11. Dynamic Duos
    • 7 Years

    1. F4L
      • 5 Years

    1. fr3d
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Don’t think anyone does. Poor value when you can just get Tomori

    2. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      A mate played Alonso and azpi on free hit lol

  16. F4L
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    wow Poch actually stuck with a winning line up. Can see 3+ goals today for Spurs.

  17. TorresMagic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    LMS safety score currently 8

  18. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    So 8 points from captain is ok right(Abraham)?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Yeah it is really good.

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Depends on Vardy.

    3. F4L
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      more than ok

    4. The Dance
      • 9 Years

  19. Differential (c)
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    Chris Wilder vs Mauricio Pochetinno.

    This could be very close. For the tactically interested, they could be in for a treat.

    CHO needs to go

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Selling for a hit

      1. davies
        • 6 Years

        To who?

      2. The Pesci challenge

        Already?

  21. Dacra
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    Best Yarmo replacement for max 7?

    Perez/Tielmans?

  22. Colonel Shoe 肝池
    • 8 Years

    got the right money to do mount to pulisic.......should i?

    1. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      What if Puli goes on blanks and mount rakes them in? 😉

      1. Colonel Shoe 肝池
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        theres always what ifs...... just mounts star is rising......as is his price over the break

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Rather take a hit and make sure he's playing in GW13

    3. nerd_is_the_werd
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Yes.

    4. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Mark's gone full maverick this season, with Martial (c) and Brandon Williams.

    5. Inazuma X1
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      How bad did the Ward injury look?

      1. Rainer
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Pulled up, knew he was done. IB might help his case and I’m sure you won’t want him for GW13 anyway. Might just be a hold.

    6. Sailboats
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Marco Silva to be sacked after this game

      1. Ask Yourself
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        One of the most boring managers in the league, I’d like that

      2. The Pesci challenge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        If he loses

    7. ChelseaGuy
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Willian 7.1 2.8%
      42 in last 6
      Really going under the radar

      1. Ask Yourself
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Top player wish he had more of a monopoly on set pieces but still a great bargain regardless

      2. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Pulisic 38 in the last 3.

        1. ChelseaGuy
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Not going under the radar though, is he?

      3. Podge
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Can only have 3 🙁

      4. Amey
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Nailed too !

      5. Zenith UK
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        He is Chelsea's most consistent player year in year out IMO. So underrated.

    8. Rushford
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Aaah. Not sure who I’m most frustrated at; CHO for not playing, Pulisic for taking his place or myself for believing he should start and not switching for Martial. Got 2 points in 3 GWs from him that’s awful

    9. Bruce Lee
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      All clean sheets intact 😎
