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The South Korean’s challenge led to a horror injury for Andre Gomes (£5.3m) but he had his red card rescinded in the week.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

    Lundstram was the one offside. He's had a terrible game

      Lol

      What a man. Even preserving my goalkeepers clean sheets now.

    The rules need to be reformed, it should be about a significant advantage a player gains by his offside position, not where some guy on a computer draws the lines. The attacker’s foot being half an inch offside shouldn’t take away from the fact Tottenham’s defence was outplayed and a legitimate goal wad scored. The goal was unfairly disallowed.

      Define 'legitimate' as used in that sentence please.

      1. Pariße
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Legitimate as in according to the rules of natural football law (and the future / updated law, rest assured we won’t be seeing thise next year).

    This Djenepo character is a handful

    I said it last week after the corrupt decision to disallow the Firminio goal and I will say it again. These imbeciles running VAR seriously need to be investigated. All the guys in the sky sports studio said that the Sheff Utd goal should have stood as he was level. It's an utter disgrace.

      They've probably got bets on the go.

    If they had drawn the line at his shoulder as they should it would have been onside. What a bloody joke VAR is.

    1. baps sniffer

      From one angle it looked like it, yes.

    2. Ginkapo FPL

      It is the most advanced ball playing body part.

  6. Tamagotchi Massacre

    For how long are commentators going to call tight VAR calls controversial and complain when it takes a couple of minutes to decide. These people need to be culled

  7. Don Van Vliet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    It's all part of the wider Lundstram conspiracy.

  8. Peter Ouch

    The only thing than can beat Lord is VAR

  15. FOO FIGHTER

      Son should get a YC for that dive.

      1. Pariße
        • 5 Years

        Wasnt a dive, he just lost balance.

        I looked, it doesn't look too bad.

    • TheSteel
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Couldve picked any other Newcastle defender and gotten a return in the last two weeks. But i went with Lascelles

    • ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      They need to bring back the naturality of the game. VAR is absolutely killing the game. Every Goal has a mini heart attack attached to it.

      1. The Dance
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Really is pathetic

    • Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Son starting to annoy me

      1. Arteta
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Why?

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          9 months, 8 days ago

          Hes a cheat and a faker

        2. Maddamotha
          • 3 Years

          Diving

      2. The Dance
        • 9 Years

        Starting?

    • Rainer

      Interesting week for lovable Son!

    • theodosios
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      They should check some passing at the start of the second half..What a ridiculous decisions made so far because of VAR...

    • The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      If it's not a foul then Son should get YC for dive. VAR is too incosistent...

      1. DR0GBA
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        haven't seen the incident, but just because it wasn't a foul doesn't mean it was a dive

    • LFox
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      He got pushed in the back! Strikers go down every week like that. Not a dive.

    • Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Was Son’s goal any good? Worth getting for Mount?

      1. LFox
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Ball fell to him in the box, lucky goal.

      2. The Dance
        • 9 Years

        Hell no

    • Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Son showing no remorse

    • Chucky

      Cilson get out of my team

      1. Dannyb
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Was about to post the same thing

    • Bartowski
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      The offside rules were brought in with the full understanding that it was down to human lines of sight.

      Now we're drawing lines in a computer program shouldn't the rules be changed instead of interpreted exactly the same?!
