Son on the rise as Mourinho’s Tottenham triumph over West Ham

West Ham United 2-3 Tottenham Hotspur

Goals: Heung-min Son (£9.6m), Lucas Moura (£7.0m), Harry Kane (£10.8m) | Michail Antonio (£6.9m), Angelo Ogbonna (£4.5m)

Assists: Dele Alli (£8.4m), Heung-min Son (£9.6m), Serge Aurier (£4.8m) | Mark Noble (£5.0m), Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m)

Bonus Points: Son x3, Aurier x2, Kane x1

Son Heung-min (£9.6m) was the main eye-catcher in Gameweek 13’s early kick-off as Fantasy Premier League managers eyed the beginning of the Jose Mourinho era at Spurs with a keen interest.

The South Korean star registered a 13-point haul thanks to a goal, assist and three bonus points and appears to be an obvious target for investment if the new manager can continue to get goals and points on the board.

Son was the top FPL points-scorer for Spurs against West Ham

Deployed in the number 10 role, Dele Alli (£8.4m) was another to impress at the London Stadium, also placing himself firmly on the Fantasy radar. He registered the assist for Son’s goal before producing some sublime skill to begin the move that led to Lucas Moura (£7.0m) slotting past Roberto (£4.4m) for Spurs’ second.

“It was just in front of me. The piece of skill was amazing, but what for me is more amazing is the mental thing in relation that. You only do that if you are focused, committed, ultra confident. If not you give up when you have bad feeling, sadness, you don’t do that piece of skill. It is amazing, but it only comes when from an emotional point of view everything is positive. Fantastic, I am really happy.” – Jose Mourinho

The Spanish goalkeeper had another torrid day at the office, lunging at several balls into the box and failing to get a strong hand to Son’s opener.

Issa Diop (£4.5m) also got an early yellow card for a coming-together with Kane. That was the defender’s fifth booking of the season, meaning West Ham will be without their first-choice centre-half for the trip to Chelsea in Gameweek 14. The resulting free-kick saw Roberto flail at the ball as Davinson Sanchez (£5.3m) rushed in but the offside flag rose once more.

His display, combined with the lack of Diop next time out, should encourage owners of Chelsea assets as they continue to be highly-owned going into Gameweek 14.

Dele Alli was handed plenty of praise for his role in Spurs’ win over West Ham, his number 10 duties helping Kane stay further forward at times

Harry Kane (£10.8m) – who nodded in a third Tottenham goal before West Ham’s extremely late fightback – is also someone under the microscope with Mourinho’s arrival. He had the ball in the net for Spurs after three minutes at the London Stadium but the striker was offside when he received a through ball from Alli.

Son was the next player to slide Kane through but again the England captain found himself ahead of the West Ham defence when the ball was played.

In the early part of the game, Kane was very much operating as an out-and-out centre-forward, like he did years before which is why he was able to enjoy several key chances. However, as the encounter wore on, he dropped a little deeper so we will still have to monitor his positioning under Mourinho.

Harry Kane added to West Ham’s misery with his seventh league goal of the season

In an open start to this London derby, Sebastien Haller (£7.2m) headed straight at Paulo Gazzaniga (£4.5m) from close range, with Andriy Yarmolenko (£5.9m) supplying the cross.

Son, operating from the left of Mourinho’s 4-2-3-1, stung Roberto’s palms from just outside the box on 19 minutes.

Serge Aurier (£4.8m) appeared to be targeted by West Ham, with several of the Irons’ attacking moves going down their left flank in the opening half. The Tottenham right-back also got away with a potential penalty shout after he collided with Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m) in the box.

Felipe Anderson (£6.8m) was next to get beyond Aurier after a slide-rule pass from Mark Noble (£5.0m) but his cut-back evaded Haller as the forward charged into the box.

West Ham will be without Issa Diop for their Gameweek 14 trip to Chelsea

Alli attempted another through-ball in the 33rd minute to find Son but Declan Rice’s sliding tackle stopped the South Korea attacker from attempting to break the deadlock.

Rice rescued the Irons again two minutes later but he could not stop Spurs making the breakthrough on 36 minutes. No. 10 Alli popped up in space once more to find Son in the box. The midfielder’s left-footed shot found the corner of Roberto’s net, though many will feel the goalkeeper could have done better considering the angle of Son’s shot.

The shot-stopper had another moment to forget before half time as his fist collided with Angelo Ogbonna (£4.5m) instead of the ball from a Spurs free-kick. He did manage to get a hand to Alli’s follow-up shot but there is no question that the Spaniard is not inspiring confidence in those playing ahead of him. While it’s good news for those who are going to play West Ham in the future, Roberto’s performance may mean we have to somewhat temper our expectations of what Spurs are capable of under Mourinho. After all, it is likely that Mauricio Pochettino probably could have orchestrated such a win given the Hammers’ poor display.

Spurs made it 2-0 just before the half-time whistle, largely thanks to an incredible piece of Alli skill that somehow kept the ball in play on the touchline. That flick set Son free down the left, with his low cross converted at the back post by Moura.

Spurs continued to dominate early in the second half, as Moura missed a big chance when set free by Son before Kane got himself on the scoresheet. He rose over Diop to head home Aurier’s cross in the 50th minute.

However, just as Spurs were potentially offering potential for defensive assets, West Ham came back into the game to remind Fantasy managers of the defensive problems that had crept up on Pochettino’s final weeks at the helm.

Mourinho did manage to oversee some defensive improvements in the first hour of the trip to West Ham but the home side did get back into the game

Michail Antonio (£6.9m) made his comeback from a long-term injury by replacing Anderson at the interval, while Pablo Fornals (£6.0m) came on for Yarmolenko in the 56th minute, the former having a big impact.

Antonio, arguably the only bright spark for West Ham other than Snodgrass, stung Gazzaniga’s palms on 60 minutes from an advanced position, before Diop denied Kane at the other end with a last-ditch sliding tackle.

As Mourinho commented post-match, Spurs failed to control the last 30 minutes of the game despite being very comfortable in the opening 60. Asked about Alli’s mostly-excellent performance, the Spurs boss said:

“Dele was like the team, he was brilliant for 60-65 minutes and then he paid the price of the times, so he went a little bit down. He was the old Dele Alli, the Dele Alli of a couple of years ago, that impressed not just England but the world. He did exactly what I wanted him to do, with two days of work. With important selection of information I tried to make clear for him exactly the spaces where we wanted him to play. Offensively and defensively, he is an intelligent footballer to understand what we wanted and very, very important for the team. I am really pleased with his performance.” – Jose Mourinho

It was Antonio who grabbed West Ham’s first goal in the 74th minute, firing into the bottom corner after Noble won the ball near the Spurs box.

Antonio – the Hammers’ most advanced player in the second half – almost squeezed in a late effort from the byline and from the resultant corner, Ogbonna headed home Snodgrass’ delivery. Spurs were relieved to hear the full-time whistle immediately afterwards, as West Ham left it too late to earn a point.

Finally, Carlos Sanchez (£4.4m) came on for Diop midway through the second period, a move which saw Rice drop to centre-back from the final 30 minutes. The midfielder could rival Fabian Balbuena (£4.3m) for a place in defence away to Chelsea.

West Ham United XI (4-2-3-1): Roberto; Cresswell, Diop, Ogbonna, Fredericks; Rice, Noble; Yarmolenko, Snodgrass, Anderson; Haller.

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Gazzaniga; Davies, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Aurier; Winks, Dier; Son, Dele, Lucas; Kane.

    So many great Captain options for next week, which one would you choose?

    A) Mane
    B) Vardy
    C) Son
    D) Tammy
    E) Kdb
    F) Ings
    G) TAA/Robbo

    1. twoplustwo
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Can’t look past Vardy against Neverton

      1. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        if they can let 2 goals in against Norwich, how many can Leicester score against them

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Mane Tammy/Pulisic Vardy ... that order

    3. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I will go with Vardy. Everton are just not good or consistent enough.

      1. Cheesyzoot
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Would you still go Vardy if Everton have a new manager in by then?

        1. ZeBestee
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Yes. Leicester and Vardy are now a top 4 side easily. He is going to get at least 20 Goals this season.

    4. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Any one of A, B and C are good options and probably will just depend on luck between them. Vardy has the advantage of no midweek games but Son and Mane have the additional midfielder points.

    5. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I’m stuck between Salah, Manè, and Vardy. If Salah is fully fit he could be a shrewd captain differential in my leagues.

    6. thegaffer82
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Vardy is the new Suarez

    7. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Son

    8. Men in green tights
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Might sound strange but I am on auba at the moment as I have stuck with him for these next fixtures

  2. twoplustwo
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    I doubled up on Mane and Mo for this week which obviously hasn’t quite worked out.

    Planning to stick with it until we got more Spurs info (they were just alright yesterday), seem reasonable? Slightly worried about Mo’s injury in the medium term like.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      If Salah recover I would stick ... double Chelsea attack could also profitable ...

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        *be

      2. twoplustwo
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Yeah I’ve got Mane Salah KDB Maddy McGinn at the moment

        Vardy and Tammy up front with some fodder

    2. LM00091
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 21 days ago

      I am in the same boat! I was thinking of selling Salah and Mount > Son and Pulisic but I think I am going to wait it out and see how Tottenham do next week. Plus Salah at home should be a great fixture.

  3. ZeBestee
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Checked a few Managers in the top 10 OR in the World, most of them have rarely had decent seasons with most OR's of the previous seasons being outside 100k or even 1M!. Goes to show this game is more about luck than anything else.

    1. DNFPL

      Stupid post.

      1. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        A bit rude

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 23 days ago

          This, any opinion is welcome regardless flaws in it

          1. DNFPL
            7 months, 23 days ago

            FPL time and time again has proven this game isn’t about luck.

            Completely debunks the whole use of the site imo if that’s the thought process.

            1. Magic Zico
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 23 days ago

              There is decision making process using numbers involved to get the top yes ... but if you think 80/20 ... the edge at the tail really involves luck ...

              1. DNFPL
                7 months, 23 days ago

                80/20?

                1. Magic Zico
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year

                  The pareto principle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pareto_principle

      2. Taffer
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        He's right. Luck is the main factor now in FPL as everyone is very well informed. Hence why the spread between players is so much smaller this year.

    2. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      The cream rises to the top. Check again at the end of the season.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Yeah, but take forexample the first in thr World. He has not used a single chip, has had games where he did not use his FT's and has never had an OR of inside top 100k or so. He is sitting at the top withPerez, DSilva and Salah in his team.

    3. Taffer
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      It's becoming more and more about luck every season as casual managers get fed information from FPL website, and visit here once a week.

      More skilled players in a game where luck is a factor = luck being the main differentiating factor. Not much edge left in this game from better information.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Yeah we cant deny the fact that luck plays a huge role. Who thought Norwich and Cantwell will do well against Everton yesterday?

    4. Sailboats
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Its still very early in the season

    5. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      It’s a marathon not a sprint

    6. Bruce Lee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I am within the top 100k once again this season

      I am doing well compared to many vets but I cannot lie... luck is involved

      Look at this GW:

      - KDB deflection goal
      - Vardy pen miss not counted
      - Maddison scored the deflection off the miss - I went with Tellemans over Maddison a few weeks ago
      - Vardy retakes and scores

      Then again, you could argue I should've had more points... Vardy had a few big chances and was robbed of a few assists so that could've gone my way

      It's just a game... focus on real life... your job, family relationships... have fun with this... I just want to banter my colleagues at work with FPL... if I get a good rank - great

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Yeah, spot on. It's just a game, with skills, instincts, luck and VAR making the difference. 😀

      2. Bruce Lee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Also, could argue it is so unlucky that TAA is missing out on clean sheets (1 goal conceded in each of the last 6 games)

        All those chances he is creating are not resulting in assists

        That is 7m+ invested in a player that isn't returning...

        More luck and I'd be flying

        You get luck and you get unlucky...

        1. ZeBestee
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          I would cartegorize TAA failure as lucky to those who don't own him!

    7. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Wondering whether there is impact of the reshuffle in the PL top 6 so far on stats predictability and attitude towards owning premium big hitters ... will see down the line of this season

    8. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      all that matters is rank at the end of the season, not the one after 1/3 of the season

    9. El Presidente
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Of course there´s luck involved, as in every game. If you have a game you can be lucky or unlucky. The thing with luck though - and this is statistically proven - is that through out 38 GW´s tends to spread evenly. We all had lucky GW´s and unlucky GW´s so far, and that will definitely be trend till the end.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Yes I agree, but to be at absolute top, you need a lot of luck.

    10. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      If it's mostly about luck then how do you explain the guys with consistently good finishes?

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        You need luck to be anywhere near top 100 OR. You thing someone who mostly finishes outside top 500k or so would be anywhere near top 50 without massive luck involved?

  4. Klaren
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    A) Martial to Pulisic
    B) KDB to Pulisic

    B would enable Son to Salah or Rico to Robertson the following GW, however considerable amount of value would be lost on KDB.

    1. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      People are buying Son not moving him on.

      1. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Yes but I don't agree with that viewpoint. I obviously think he is a great asset which is why I already own him and he has 1 more great fixture but I don't like his GW15 - GW17 fixtures which is when I might move him on for Salah after GW14, who has much better fixtures.

    Does Mark still know?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Pretending not knowing

  6. FDMS All Starz
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Why is everyone selling Kdb?? He was arguably their best player yesterday and how long before city start clicking again? Are we really gonna go into the festive period without a city asset? Especially one with the quality of Kdb for 10mil

    1. twoplustwo
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      He was great yesterday especially when Chelsea were attacking aggressively

    2. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Looks like it.

    3. Lingard’s Shin Guards
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Many getting rid for Son but KDB’s a keeper imo. Better to find other ways to fit Son in

    4. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Assuming Rodri is fine, I think he is a great asset for 10m, but when Rodri is not in the game, he seems to spend most of the time in his own half.

    5. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Let them, they'll regret it.

  7. Lingard’s Shin Guards
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Aguero, Hayden, Mount -> Mousset, Son, Pulisic (-4) look good? Will give me this -

    Pope
    TAA Lund Soy
    Mane KDB Son Pulisic Maddison
    Vardy Abraham

    Button Mousset Rico Janmaat (0ft 1.5m itb)

    Not sure about having that much money itb but there’s so many mid-priced options/cheap premiums playing well

    1. Runaway

      Move looks good and TV is amazing. I am 0.1 short of this team with 104.6 TV 🙁 so would not be bothered with the money ITB for a week.

      1. Lingard’s Shin Guards
        • 1 Year

        Luck and skill balance out over 38 gwk’s though.

      2. Ógie

        • 7 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        How come some managers do well consistently so?

        Are they just always lucky?I don't think so,luck has it's place but these things balance out after 38 game weeks and people that do well make their luck by making good moves that requires a degree of vision and skill.

        1. El Presidente
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Of course. Blaming your OR on (lack of) luck is for losers.

    2. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      They will all end up the similar based on the general consensus of the group. They do well it it clicks at the start and are all watching each other like hawks. If the consensus does not do well it will quickly be described as a 'strange season'.

      In fairness though the consistently good scorers have a knack for spotting trends and are not afraid to change if needs be.

      1. Bruce Lee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        I chalked the Leicester winning season as 'just luck'... but realistically it was just me being resistent to getting the cheapies like Vardy and Mahrez in

        I got them in at like week 8 or 9 which was way too late...

        This year I am jumping on the trends... got 3 Leicester and 2 Chelsea

        1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
          • 11 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Exactly, the people who do well seem to stay ahead of the curve and find the value quicker then the rest.

  9. Cheesyzoot

    If you only have Lundy left this week do you expect your rank to rise or fall by Monday night?

    1. Bruce Lee

      Depends how he does...

      also depends on how you did yesterday

      1. Cheesyzoot
        7 months, 23 days ago

        67 points yesterday

    3. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Depends on your rank but if you are in top 500k or so probably a slight fall given that most people in that bracket have Lund. That is, of course, unless Lundstram has a massive haul against United.

    4. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Hope he doesnt play sincr Cantwell 10 pointer waiting. Expect a 1 pointer though and red arrow

      1. Cheesyzoot
        7 months, 23 days ago

        No chance he won’t play unfortunately

    5. thegaffer82
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Lundy haul = slight rise
      Lundy blank, Utd don’t do much = slight drop
      Lundy blank + Rash/Martial haul = bigger drop

  10. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Best combo:

    A: Tomori + Mount + Rashford
    B: Tomori + Pulisic/Maddison + Jimenez
    C: Robbo + Mount + Ings

    1. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      probably B

    2. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      C

  11. Freaki
    7 months, 23 days ago

    KDB + Greenwood to Son + Jimi?

    1. The Mighty Hippo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Yes, do it.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      For free looks good

  12. Max City
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    What to do with Janmaat injury and 2FT:

    A) Janmaat >> 4.5def (who?)
    B) Janmaat + Tielemans >> Soyuncu/Chillwell + 6.2mid (who?)
    C) Janmaat + KDB >> Son + 4.9def (who?)

  13. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Looking for Diop replacement- 2.6 m in bank and 2 free transfers (WC in tact) so could double up on Liverpool defence but Palace have some decent fixtures and importantly good one in week 18 when Liverpool blank. Chelsea or Spurs other option

    Other defenders are
    TAA Lundstram Söyüncü Rico.......

    A Robertson
    B Van Aanholt
    C Kelly (and save cash)
    D Tomori
    E Aurier
    F Any better option?

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Baldock or oconnel options if no Henderson in goal for the double up. Also like PVA and Aurier tbf

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Thanks, planning to get Henderson week 15 for double up - Aurier what I am minded to do after midweek game

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Tarkowski

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Yes good shout- although a couple of weeks too late perhaps!

  14. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Today's predictions? 1-1 for me, Martial and Oconnell

    1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I think it will be tight. It might have being yourself who warned posters not to write off sheff united pre season. It was a Shef Utd fan anyway. People like myself were saying yeah... ok. Thought it was fan talk.
      Wish I listened!

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Hahaha yh was... Although I did say stay away from Lund for first 2 weeks

    2. thegaffer82
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I’ll be delighted if Utd can nick a win. But, sadly, a draw or SHU narrow victory looking more likely

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      1-0 United hopefully scored by Martial

    4. El Presidente
      7 months, 23 days ago

      1-0 for the blades. Lundstram scoring.

  15. Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Which one would you drop if it gave you the funds to get Son?

    A) KDB
    B) Abraham

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      KDB for next few out of those

  16. manu4life99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Mount owners are u selling or keeping faith? (Bought for 6.0)

    1. Bruce Lee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Probably selling for Puli to be honest

    2. Lemongrab
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      One more week for me then he's going so I can get Jiminez.

    3. Cheesyzoot
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I think I’ll keep for one more week, West Ham really looked a shambles at times yesterday

    4. boredjames
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      i think pulisic better if you can afford it

    5. thegaffer82
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Sold for Son.

      But in truth he’s still a very good option. He’s fallen behind Pulisic for me, but he’ll score plenty more points between now and the end of the season

    6. Rust Cohle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Also bought at £6, but he’s probably going soon. Might take punt on Zaha or Milivojevic for their upcoming fixtures.

    7. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Having stuck by him cannot sell before West Ham at home!

  17. Atimis
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Any argument against switching to 352 with 2 FTs from Auba to Son?
    Son surely better option than Kane?

    1. ktk_interista
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I am considering but want to give Auba Norwich first.

    2. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I’d love to be doing the opposite. If I could swap my 5th mid to a 4th forward I would! So many strikers doing great at the moment with others ready to explode imo.

      Vardy, Abraham, Rashford, Jiminez, Ings. Then throw in the proven players like Laca, Auba, Kane, Jesus(if Aguero is our long).

  18. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Owned Vardy all season, and I've gotten 44 points from three captaincies. Probably the only decision I've absolutely got right all season. Feels good.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      He has probably given me more © points in last 2 Gw's compared to what i had in previous 7 gw's 😀

      5 gw's © blanks thanks to Raz & Salah. Looks like last season though. I'm happy partying atm !

  19. Azzastaan
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Change before saturday or wait until tuesday?

  20. Bruce Lee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Thoughts on A Barnes as a differential?

  21. FDMS All Starz
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Thoughts on this?

    Auba,Dendo,Sterling ——> Ings,Mane,Son (-4)

  22. Bruce Lee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Mount ➡ Son
    Telemans ➡ Barnes

    Thoughts?

    1. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I don’t like the Barnes pick...

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        This

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      No.

  23. Ole Trafford
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Anyone else looking at PVA with his upcoming fixtures?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I am yes but the emerging of Son make him a bit too expensive

      1. Ole Trafford
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        What about Gabriel Jesus if Aguero is out for awhile? I’m concerned Sterling May play as 9 some games and Jesus will still be benched.

  24. fantasyfog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    kane or son

    1. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      or should I say kane and traore

      or son and wood

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Son and Wood easy.

      1. fantasyfog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        kane and traore it is then

  25. manu4life99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    1FT I should sell Ota but i would prefer to strengthen starting 11 (wc still to play)

    Any better ideas than Mount > Pulisic/Martial/Moura?

    Pope
    TAA Soy Tomori
    Mane KDB Maddison Mount
    Jiminez Vardy Tammy

    Heaton,Lund,Ota,Dend

    1. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Save.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Start Lundstram as well.

  26. Firminoooo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    I will probably wait 5 GW before transfering in Son.

    East Asia cup 11- 18 dec. Think South Korea needs him for at least 2/3 games: China and Japan.

    Next 5 fixtures not great: BOU, mun, BUR, wol, CHE.

    From GW 19, no Asia cup and some nice fixtures: BRI, nor, sou,

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Not playing in that- not on international calendar so only home based players taking part

  27. Champions united
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Have 2 ft and kdb

    Is is risky to sell sterling when kun is injured i think pep can go with 2 up front jesus and sterling

    1. potatoace'scott talent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I think with the fixtures pile up next month, if kun is out, its inevitable sterling will have the odd game leading the line.

    2. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      yeah good point that

  28. Just Kreuzing
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Chilwell or Soyuncu

    1. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Chilwell is in the form of his life at the moment. Was unlucky not to get an assist yesterday again for Vardys header. Good save from the gk.

    2. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I have soy, which is great, but want chilwell instead, cleanses + goals/assists and baps

    3. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Soy is better value. Both are fine picks though IMHO.

  29. j16
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 23 days ago

    When will Liverpool start keeping clean sheets so TAA and Robertson start justifying there prices

    1. XabiAlonso
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Will probably get 2+ out of the next 4

      1. j16
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Yeah hopefully otherwise I might move TAA out

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Next week (which I have been saying every week for the last 12 weeks)

      1. j16
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Lol you're not the only one

    3. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      at your peril

    4. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Got Robertson and TAA. If I sell one I can do Mount to Son. Dont know what to do.
