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The South Korean’s challenge led to a horror injury for Andre Gomes (£5.3m) but he had his red card rescinded in the week.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 it takes more than 30 seconds to decide whether a player is offside then its likely because he is level so the benefit of doubt should go to the attacker & let the goal stand

    1. Superhoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      far too sensible

    2. DR0GBA

      these officials are trying to make any excuse to not allow these goals, it's a joke

      I know, the old benefit of the doubt to the attacking team should still be in effect even with VAR.

    Leicester unchanged again

      Pep says Leicester will be his next job.

  7. Yank Revolution

    Im looking at the VAR replay again and he's offside...Why is there so much moaning? Its not even a debate!

    1. theodosios
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      You are blind or trolling?

      1. Yank Revolution
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        The line doesn't lie

    2. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Because they spend three minutes looking at a toe. That's gross!

      1. Yank Revolution
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        But offside by an inch or a foot, why do you care and why does it matter? OFFSIDE IS OFFSIDE!!!

    3. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Moaning is because nobody cares whether his left toe is offside, it didn't give him any advantage. Shouldn't have been looked at in the first place

    4. Regin
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      It's never ever offside. Nor was it leading to the goal directly. Horror decision.

      1. Yank Revolution
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        But that is not the rule...you guys are just adding your own, invented offside rules to justify your own anger. It's silly.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          I think the point that's being made, or at least should be is the accuracy.
          They're taking a definitive moment of when the ball is played to a definitive line in the ground but there is room for error in that split second of contact that effects that line on the ground.
          Offside is offside but it's being mega-accurate on a system that is not as accurate.
          Is there an answer, I'm not sure other than if say it's less than an inch offside then it's deemed 'not conclusive' .

    If you're an England supporter, who would you prefer as the manager?

    Gareth Southgate or Frank Lampard?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅

      Southgate

    1. Revival

      Yes ....Holding, Bellerin and Ozil finally back in the starting XI.....and no Xhaka in sight 😀

      Leno
      Sokratis Luiz Holding
      Bellerin Torreira Willock* Guendouzi Tierney
      Lacazette Aubameyang

      * Would start Ceballos ahead of Willock when Ceballos is fit.

    1. Hot Toddy

      Most teams are.

  13. Don Van Vliet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    I'll reiterate what Hoddle mentioned a week or so ago:

    If they're going to be so granular in their detail when drawing the offside line, then the same attention to detail should be placed on when, exactly, the ball is played.

    In this instance, the ball being played half a second earlier would make all the difference.

    1. Yank Revolution
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      They freeze frame as the ball is on his foot. The millisecond before it is played forward.

      1. Don Van Vliet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Exactly. Not the instant the first part of the foot makes contact with the ball.

        It's inconsistent application of the same rule.

    Watching Jon Walters on Final Score. Usually he talks crap, but he is right about what he has just said on VAR.

    The PL and refs have been arrogant in the way VAR has been implemented in the PL - there is no monitor checks by the onfield ref, there is no independent refs in charge of VAR and there is no monitor for fans at the game to see what the VAR is seeing.
