Lundstram unlucky not to score as Sheff Utd nearly beat Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur 1 Sheffield United 1

Goals: Son Heung-min (£9.6m) | George Baldock (£4.5m)

Assists: David McGoldrick (£5.4m)

Bonus Points: McGoldrick x3, Serge Aurier (£4.8m) x2 Son x1

Sheffield United kept their unbeaten away record in the league intact with a draw at Tottenham that could – and probably should – have been a victory.

Son Heung-min‘s (£9.6m) opening goal for the home side was very much against the run of play and justice was served when a mis-hit cross from George Baldock (£4.5m) eluded everyone and ended up in the back of the net.

The equaliser was subjected to a lengthy check by VAR, with nobody’s favourite high-tech arbiter having already made its mark by disallowing a previous Sheffield goal from David McGoldrick (£5.4m) for offside.

That decision, even by VAR’s increasingly comical standards, was highly debatable, involving a fractional part of John Lundstram‘s (£4.8m) toe – for measurement purposes about the same size as a Roberto Firmino armpit hair – being offside during the phase of play that preceded the one from which McGoldrick scored.

The international break can’t come soon enough for VAR, because the only clear and obvious thing about it at the moment is the amount of contempt it is inspiring.

Considerably more heartening was the performance of Son, who led the way for attempts en route to his third straight attacking return – a curious state of affairs seeing as he’s lost more than 300,000 owners over the last four Gameweeks.

He’s certainly the brightest spark in a Spurs side that is now winless in five matches, with their most popular player, the 15.7%-owned Harry Kane (£10.8m), a bit of a poster boy for their struggles.

Son was by far Spurs’ key goal threat, with Kane offering less attacking potential with each week

The England captain has just one goal from his last four starts and he looked slow and static against a Blades side impressively quick to close down and overwhelm their opponents throughout the encounter.

In the end, Kane was kept to just two attempts, neither of which were on target, as Spurs produced precious little for the 61.3% of possession they enjoyed.

They did have five attempts on target to the visitors’ four, but that latter figure should have been boosted by Fantasy Premier League’s (FPL) current darling, Lundstram.

Lundstram was desperately unlucky not to score for Sheffield United in Gameweek 12

The misclassified defender was at his box-to-box best on Saturday, only to miss a couple of great chances to add to his two-goal heroics against Burnley last week.

He made a poor connection when picked out in front of goal by Enda Stevens‘ (£5.1m) fine cross and then hit the post from a Jack O’Connell (£4.6m) cut-back in the area.

Lundstram is such a dynamic asset at present that it is very hard not to be greedy – he is, after all, producing a fantastic 14.6 points per million – but on another day it could well have been another big, big haul for his now 40.8% ownership.

Mousset continues to offer enough to warrant investment

Striker Lys Mousset (£5.0m) is way down on that number. He’s at 1.9% to be precise, but already attracting new owners for Gameweek 13’s visit from Manchester United.

The Blades’ fixtures after that are set fair for six Gameweeks and Mousset is in good enough form to warrant further investment. He’d scored in two of the three matches prior to Saturday and came very close to adding to that tally when he expertly turned Davison Sanchez (£5.3m) in the area and dragged a shot narrowly wide.

Strike partner McGoldrick was more productive on the day, courtesy of an assist for Baldock’s equaliser, but it Mousset who looks best placed to improve on Sheffield’s underwhelming total of 13 goals for the season.

At the back, only Leicester have conceded fewer goals than the nine allowed by Chris Wilder’s side, and it took an error from Stevens to gift Spurs their successful strike on Saturday.

If it wasn’t for Lundstram, Stevens would probably be a more popular FPL asset

Take the anomalous Lundstram out of the equation and the wing-back is the most consistently productive member in that defence, with two assists to go with five clean sheets.

For those seeking extra Blades defensive cover, or the curious bunch who refuse to leap aboard the Lundstram bandwagon, Stevens looks like the best bet, even if Baldock’s first goal of the season has prompted more interest among Gameweek 13’s early adopters.

However, Fantasy managers must make themselves aware of the fact that in-form goalkeeper Dean Henderson (£4.7m) is ineligible for the meeting with Manchester United, as they are his parent club.

Bets look far less assured at Tottenham.

Their fixtures are inviting, their form anything but.

They were second best in the first half and only improved after the break when Harry Winks (£5.3m) replaced Tanguy Ndombele (£5.9m), with Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino providing an update on the Frenchman post-match.

“We need to assess him now. I don’t know anything at this moment. He felt pain in his groin but I don’t know if that was before or during the game it happened. Yes, a strange situation because my feeling was that he wasn’t comfortable on the pitch but he said was ok during the game. Then in the end we arrived at half-time and the doctor said to me that we needed to change because he can’t continue in the game.” Mauricio Pochettino

Despite not keeping a clean sheet or getting attacking returns, Aurier did enough to earn bonus points

At the back, Aurier has suddenly emerged as a bit of a bonus magnet, with two extra points awarded against Sheffield to go with the maximum gained in Gameweek 11’s draw at Everton.

He had as many attempts as Kane at the weekend, was joint-top among his team-mates for chances created, provided Tottenham’s only big chance and won all of his aerial duels and tackles.

In midfield, Giovani Lo Celso‘s (£7.3m) eye-catching performance in the 4-0 Champions League win over Red Star Belgrade earned him a first domestic start and the Argentinian put in a decent enough shift to suggest he could produce both goals and assists if he can get fully bedded in over the next few weeks.

But if that midweek victory was a case of two steps forward, the performance against Sheffield was at least one step back and Pochettino acknowledged his team needs to find some consistency as soon as possible.

“The reality is that, for different reasons, we are not showing the performances that we expect. The team is in a period where we are finding the best balance.” Mauricio Pochettino

That balance might well come from Lo Celso – particularly when he’s compared to the seemingly disinterested Christian Eriksen (£8.7m) – but for now, much like many of the Spurs side, he is probably one to be monitored rather than bought, with Son by far and away the most attractive prospect.

          Not this.

      2. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years

        Yeah do it , I did it this week.

      3. Aubamazette
        • 5 Years

        Would if I had the cash

      4. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        I'm thinking of making the move after the City match.

        1. Ace Ventura
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I'm waiting on liv city game as Sterling might finally have to go as well. He is a differential for me now but too much money so mixed returns

          1. beric
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Same

      5. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        At their current prices?
        Pulisic.

        But many like myself got Mount @6m so hard to move away.
        The only way I would get Pulisic is if I doubled up with Mount and Pulisic. Which is a possibility.

        1. Ace Ventura
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I bought at 6.5 so I'll only lose 0.2mil. Mount does offer ok return and I was tempted to double up but can't as have Zouma and Tammy as well.

          1. The 12th Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            I’d be tempted to move on then if that’s all your losing.

            1. Ace Ventura
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Yeah cheers bro. I'll see what happens today but good to know it's not too crazy a move!

      6. Jurgen Flopp
        • 5 Years

        • 1 Year
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Or ones who benched him got lucky 😀
        (Myself included)
        2 chances to score, CS ruined by stupid defensive error.

      6. Aubamazette
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        6.0 defender & Mount
        Or
        5.0 defender & Pulisic

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Who are the defenders?

          1. Aubamazette
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            6.0 - One of the Man City defenders (will see who’s more nailed after Chelsea game) or PVA

            5.0 - Willems the only appealing option for me tbh

        2. Puncheon Guly
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          B. Clean sheet potential at every price point

      7. Sailboats
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Which game to watch?

        Wolves vs Villa

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 6 Years

          United match on TV
          Wolves on mobile 😛
          Jimenez & none of United Brighton.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Probably will watch the United game on the TV seen as i have Martail captained and have the Wolves game on Sky Go on the phone to see how my Jimi is getting on.

          • 5 Years

          United as it'll be funnier

        9. Jurgen Flopp
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          United Brighton will be a good game. Brighton won't sit back which will make United play.

        Unlucky, not and nearly in the same sentence for the article's title...
        Lundy starters unlucky
        Lundy nonowners not hurt

      9. Straobalno
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Maddison, Pulisic or Martial which one to take for next few weeks?

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Just one? Sure not two?

          1. Straobalno
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Can get only one this week 🙁

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Maddison I think, Pulisic week after perhaps or punting Richarlison ... that’s what I’ll probably do

        2. Ace Ventura
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Depending on how Martial gets on, I'm tempted for all 3.

        3. Jurgen Flopp
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Got to be all 3 but priority order I'd say

          Maddison
          Pulisic
          Martial

      10. unitednations

        Best solution here with 1ft and 0m itb

        Pope -- Heaton*
        Taa Lundy Rico -- Lascelles* Tomori
        Sterling* Kdb Mount* Martial -- Cantwell*
        Tammy Vardy Rashford*

        A: Sterling > Mane...and keep Mount for Chelsea’s good fixtures after the city game.

        B: Rashford + Mount >> Ings + Maddison (-4)...can then aim to get a pool mid in gw14. No idea how to bring in robbo though

        C: WC and bring in Mane, Ings, Robbo, Maddison at the expense of sterling, Rashford, Lascelles, Mount

          ROTATION PAIRINGS IN 2019/20
          There are ten pairings that alternate home fixtures perfectly next season:

          Team 1 Team 2

            What are your realistic hopes for the Liv-City game?

            I'd be very happy with a 1-0 Liverpool win, Mane goal TAA assist (or vice-versa).

            I'm hoping Salah and Sterling stay quiet.

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year

              1-1 with TAA assist, Salah and KDB goals and everyone else gets 2 Pts each.

              Less a hope, more a prediction. Can see a repeat of last year's 0-0 and with two defenders and two mids I'd take 18 points

                The manager deserves a lot of credit, love his system and getting Henderson on loan was shrew business too.

                    I was looking at this tbh.

                    Yarmolenko and Aubameyang to Mane/Sterling and Mousset -4.

                    What you think?

                    Sterling for me probably, or Mané

            This may have been discussed to death already, so apologies if it has, however it's news to me.

            I've just been checking fixtures over the coming weeks and noticed that Liverpool and West Ham aren't playing in Gw18. Does anyone know the reason for this?

            What to do with Auba? 1 FT. I want Salah really but would have to take a -4, and probably replace my 3rd striker with fodder. Currently for next week:

            Pope Soy TAA Lund

            Maddy Mane KDB McGinn

            Auba Vardy Tammy

            Bench: 4.0 Cantwell Rico Tomori

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Auba has to go. Not worth the $$. Forget the fixtures. In their current state, just avoid.

              1. twoplustwo
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 4 days ago

                Yes exactly my thinking. But how to shift for 1 FT? Is it worth -4 to Salah?

            2. Hot Toddy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 4 days ago

              I think he needs to go. So expensive for a player who so rarely hauls and plays for a weak team under a lost manager. There's n on reason to keep. They're struggling against poor teams.

              1. twoplustwo
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 4 days ago

                I've watched the last 3 or 4 games, which is why I want to ditch as a priority.

                Agree. Especially the manager bit.

                Aubameyang out Salah in is exactly what I'd be doing in this situation. You can match or better Aubameyang points for a much lesser price and use cash to buy Salah. Salah better pick than De Bruyne going forward so that's a real option there. Should have change to upgrade McGinn or a defender or whatever tickles your fancy.

            Anybody with Hendo and a 4.0 GK just taking the 0 points. Don't think it's worth a 2 transfers as I want Hendo from gw14-19

              This is why I always have two playing keepers or an expensive player and his back up.

              I just don’t get people putting themselves deliberately in a spot where, if their first choice keeper gets injured, they have a blank at that position.

              Keepers earn points too.

              1. Tsparkes10
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 4 days ago

                True but he's done v well for me and its only one game. Is it worth 2 transfers or possibly 0.4 itb. Probs not imo

          14. Dynamic Duos
            • 6 Years

            Salah will score 2 today.

              Hopefully 2 TAA assists there, if that’s the case.

              More likely be Mané with a brace, though, and Salah blanking.

              1. Dynamic Duos
                • 6 Years

                  I own Salah not Mané, so I’d love for your predictions to come true.

                  But the way my season has gone so far it’s more likely to be the Pool player I don’t own who scores a double today.

              Need some feedback please. Yarmolenko is the priority for me take out but to have a better replacement, I'm also looking at Aguero out as well. Should I:

              a) Yarmo/Aguero to Maddison/Firmino(or Laca) for -4
              b) Yarmo to Perez or other options?

              Pope
              TAA - Lund - Soy
              Mane - KDB - Mount - Yarmo
              Vardy - Abraham - Aguero

              Bench: McGovern - Janmaat - Diop - Hayden

                  You hope for goals then, have double Liv def and Salah C, wouldn't mind a 3-0 Liverpool win. Expecting a low scoring game though.

                    Currently on 56 points so would be nice to cross the 70 mark today.

                    Think it'll be a 2-1 to either side or 2-2.

                5. I'm looking at gaining good ground on mini league.

                Opponent has 51 vs my 53 and I have TAA, Mane and Martial extra on him. Hoping to catch him!

                  Hoping Martial does well too, ManUtd assets usually let me down

              My rival is 132 pts ahead of me!!!
              Nice and steady scores every single wk...

              Still has Pukki

              Bench made up of Button/Guendouzi/Kelly/
              Matip and is in top 20 OR

                No longer your rival lol

                  Lol that's what I'm thinking yeah. Rest of team is similar to mine so I'm not sure how I'm gonna reign him in..

                  Maybe double Sheffield utd defence and a punt on Firmino or someone... Idk tbh.. Has all his chips too.

                I think he's a bit too far to catch. Unless he's blown all his chips, he's likely a decent manager and that lead is too big to make up!

                  No iv turned a bigger deficit around few yrs ago. Capt Harry Kane for like ten goals over a few gw spell.

                  1 month, 4 days ago

                  If he has gained 132 points in less than third of the season then he can obviously lose that lead with more than two thirds of the season to go...

                It's not that big a gap at this stage. Many gwks to play.

                He does look a bit like Robbie in that pic alright. 🙂

              Seems like I’m the only one out here with 6 players still playing (7 if including captaincy).

              Make or break day for this gw!

              Is double Liverpool defence waste of cash with Söyüncü Rico Tomori Lundstram all returning good points?

              My defence is
              TAA Söyüncü Lundstram Rico Diop
              Was going to go Diop to Robertson but better use of cash may be Cantwell to Maddison and get Janmaat for Diop and give myself benching headache midfielder/ forwards with

              Mane Martial Maddison Mount KDB
              Vardy Abraham Jiminez

                I currently have those 4 and Tomori so I can't see any reason to get in Robbo honestly.

                I wouldn't be confident relying on him as a starter week in week out.

                  This.

                  Have 5 good mids instead.
