Scout Notes

Kane, Son and Alli continue blistering start to Mourinho’s reign

Tottenham Hotspur 5 Burnley 0

Goals: Harry Kane (£10.9m) x2, Lucas Moura (£7.0m), Son Heung-min (£9.9m), Moussa Sissoko (£4.9m)

Assists: Alli x2, Son, Kane, Jan Vertonghen (£5.2m)

Bonus Points: Kane x3, Vertonghen x2, Son x1

Harry Kane (£10.9m) delivered two goals and his first double-digit haul in 15 matches as Spurs put Burnley to the sword.

The Tottenham captain had managed just one goal from his last four starts prior to Saturday’s fixture, but he added an assist and the maximum bonus award to his brace to hand a season-best 16 points to his 18.3% ownership in Fantasy Premier League.

Rotation issues mean Christmas is rarely the season to be jolly for Fantasy managers. Kane’s untouchable status at his club and the lack of viable alternatives up-front – five-minute wonder Troy Parrott (£4.4m) anyone? – mark him out as a festive exception.

Kane suggested he can get back to his best at Spurs in a big win over Burnley

Even he is unlikely to start all of the next five games, which begins with tough tests against Wolves and Chelsea. But if he shows further evidence that he’s finally relocated his mojo, the run of Brighton, Norwich and Southampton that follows could bring in his New Year with a bang.

Kane certainly ensured Burnley went down with a whimper at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Sean Dyche’s side managed just one attempt on target all match as Spurs overwhelmed them with pace and attacking intent from the off.

The hosts were ahead after just four minutes when Son Heung-min (£9.9m) laid off the ball to Kane and he lashed home a shot from close to 30 yards out.

That could have been the goal of the match, and yet it didn’t come close.

Alli has delivered in every game under Mourinho

Lucas Moura (£7.0m) doubled the advantage five minutes later from close range, with the assist going to the in-form Dele Alli (£8.7m), somewhat fortuitously, as the ball grazed his head before reaching the Brazilian.

But the goal was essentially down to a superb jinking run by Son that carved open Burnley’s backline.

That could have been the run of the match, and yet it didn’t come close either.

Son then set up Moussa Sissoko (£4.9m), who hit the post, before being denied a tap-in when clean through with Alli, who dithered just long enough for the golden chance to go begging.

The South Korean clearly decided he wasn’t going to rely on anyone to get him a goal after that, so he did it all by himself with the run – and goal – of the match after 32 minutes.

Picking up the ball on the edge of his own area, he burst past half the Burnley team on his way into the other box before finishing with ease past the helpless Nick Pope (£4.7m).

Among Spurs players, only Kane is more popular in FPL than Son (17.2%) at present, and he’s clearly enjoying life under Jose Mourinho, with two goals and four assists in the four matches since the Portuguese coach took charge.

The South Korean has proved to be an incredibly reliable Spurs assets since Mourinho took over. Providing both goals and assists, he has averaged 9.3 points per game, while Alli has managed 9.5 per game.

Vertonghen got himself an assist and a clean sheet against Burnley

Jan Vertonghen‘s (£5.2m) tackle diverted the ball to Son to earn him the assist on the wonder goal – the Fantasy equivalent of a brush merchant being given some of the credit for the Mona Lisa. Not that the Belgian’s 1.4% ownership will be complaining as it helped their man to 11 points, nearly half his total of 25 this season.

Sandwiching all of that came Burnley’s chances to make a game of it.

A Robbie Brady (£5.5m) header hit the bar and post before Davinson Sanchez (£5.3m) did well to deny Chris Wood‘s (£6.2m) header from the rebound. Jay Rodriguez (£5.7m) then had one header comfortably saved by Paulo Gazzaniga (£4.6m) and missed with another when he really should have scored.

And that was pretty much it for the visitors, who went four down nine minutes into the second half when Kane smashed in his second from inside the area. The assist came from Alli, who is another midfielder thriving under Mourinho.

More than 380,000 managers bought into him for Gameweek 16 and, despite a relatively muted display, he still produced nine points and now has three goals and as many assists from Mourinho’s four-match tenure.

Even Sissoko is proving to be an attacking threat these days and he channelled his inner Son when going on a surging run of his own, exchanging passes with his skipper and poking in his second goal in three Gameweeks.

For context, it had taken him four seasons to match that output previously, but such is life for Spurs at present under Mourinho.

Spurs have been completely revitalised under Mourinho

In the four Gameweeks he’s been in charge, only Liverpool can match Spurs for goals (12) and the side has found a real ruthlessness, with a 24% goal conversion rate well beyond the Reds’ 20.3% total.

And, for once, Spurs kept a clean sheet as well – only their second all season. That fact didn’t escape Mourinho in his post-match analysis.

“Yes, I’m very happy with that. I told the boys at half-time that the clean sheet should be a collective ambition, not something that belongs to the goalkeeper or the centre-backs, everybody. I could give an example of Lucas (Moura), he was one of the players further from our goal but his commitment in the defensive process was very strong.”

Serge Aurier (£5.0m) is the most popular asset in the backline, with 6.1% ownership, although rotation is highly likely to bite the full-backs over Christmas, even if the Ivory Coast international has little competition at right-back currently.

Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld (£5.4m) are Mourinho’s preferred picks at centre-half and might, just might, stay that way for the rest of this year.

Son’s energy and dynamism has spread around his team-mates since Mourinho arrived

What is not in doubt is the vibrancy and dynamism of Spurs’ attack, with the midweek loss at Manchester United the exception, not the rule.

That suggests even those tricky fixtures against Wolves and Chelsea won’t stop the rush to bring in their offensive assets, with Son, Alli and Kane all in the top five for Gameweek 17 transfers-in at present.

But before we all get drunk on the fumes of Tottenham’s attacking spirit, remembering the quality of the opposition they demolished should sober us up a tad.

Burnley have had a wretched week, losing three straight games by an aggregate score of 11-1 and prompting Dyche to play the injury card post-match.

“We’ve had a really tough week though and we are depleted at the minute. We have as many injuries to key players as I can remember, which doesn’t help. But onwards and upwards; that’s the way it is. We’ve done it before, and we have to continue doing it.”

Burnley have not enjoyed the last few days

On first glance, Burnley’s squad is not so badly off, although stalwarts such as Ashley Barnes (£6.3m) and Ashley Westwood (£5.4m) are currently absent.

And their schedule is pleasant enough, with trips to Bournemouth and Everton and visits from Newcastle, Manchester United and Aston Villa before the FA Cup third round makes its unwelcome Fantasy appearance in early January.

But the present malaise is more than just a week old.

No side has currently conceded more goals than the 20 they’ve shipped over the last eight Gameweeks, and their decidedly underwhelming 9.2 minutes per chance average over that period means the strikers have been over-performing to score the ten goals they’ve managed – a tally that supposedly goal-shy Newcastle have reached from one game fewer.

That should keep most of their players off our Christmas lists unless Dyche – a past master at turning things around – can re-invigorate his troops pretty much immediately.

Instead, it’s Son, Alli and now Kane who are likely to provide us with some festive fun, with maybe a defender or two worth monitoring if the side can continue to embrace Mourinho’s more traditional tastes in the busy weeks ahead.

    Its amazing my defence currently consist of three 4.0 starting defenders and a 4.5. If someone at the start of the season had made a team with a defence like that it would have been mocked as inbalanced and just generally rubbish. There truly is outstanding value in defence this year.

      That's their prices at the start of the season I mean*

      Actively contemplating the TAA to Kelly switch in 18- not a short term move!

        Ward due back gw23 so might not be too too long term either

          Yep I know.

          Started season with Ward Kelly combo to guarantee one starter - may go back to that system.

          Losing TAA enables Soy to Pereira which I suspect is a smart switch. Just a question of how many transfers I want to make at the back

    Is it worth sacrificing Ings to get in Rashford?

      Probably felt easier last night. Consistent as hell, but Rashford has the higher ceiling

        Will be moving out kdb for grealish to fund the transfer. Worth it?

          I own KdB and no way will sell, been very unlucky and his stats are almost twice as good as Son for example ... he is doing everything right and due a huge haul

              sure save, you will need to decide what to do with TAA & Mane and you have a few players like Lund & Rico who are on 4 yellow cards and just one card away from a suspension in GW18, when your Liverpool players blank 😉

    Can anyone explain this Abrahams obsession to me? He seems set to rise again. Only the fifth best forward out there and certainly not best value.

    Ings
    Jiminez
    Vardy
    Rashford

    All performing better since GW7

    1. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I guess fixtures play the part in case of Jimenez. He's quite consistent, but people might see this coming.

      TOT / nor / MCI / Liv

      I keep him for nor. Just hope that he will not get rotated in that game.

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Which of those teams had a defence?

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Quiet first 2 games then exploded, high ceiling with 5 double digit hauls, getting better in a very attacking team and captain potential.

      Ings and Jiminez have one double digit haul between them and tick over but don’t hurt non owners

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Vardy Rashford and Tammy the best 3 up top, imho

          Lol, extra bad as I'm a West Ham fan too. It's more to do with not owning any players from either team, they're dead to me fpl wise

    Front Seven (w/sub Cantwell)

    KDB-Sterling-Mo-Mount
    Mousset-Jiminez-Vardy

    Sterling + Mous out for:

    A)Son + Ings
    B)Alli + Tammy

      B for me

  6. NATSTER
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    How would you fix this team. I feel Mousset, who had no goals in last two favourable games and now injured, is top priority and Tomori is 2nd.

    Gazza (Button)
    TAA - Soyuncu - Lundstram - Kelly - Tomori
    Mane - KDB - Son - Alli - Pulisic
    Vardy - Jimenez - Mousset

    A: Get Ayew - good fixtures and straight swap
    B: Mousset + Pulisic ->> Abraham + 4.4mid
    C: Mousset + Pulisic + Tomori ->> Rashford + 4.4mid + 3.9def

        Thanks. I came to post because I felt the need of some logics now.

        C is really unhealthy when considering GW18.

    2. ALegendJ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Among those options, B imo

      1. NATSTER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Thank you. I'm not sure if it's too sideway between Pulisic & Abraham, but it might be good if Mousset out.

        Wait, 56 points and that's a bad GW? That's good! and good rank aslo! what's the matter with that?

    So basicly everyone on this site got Rashford. I still dont trust him, will keep Jiminez whole season. Bought Jiminez at 7.2 so dont think Rashford worth 1.7 more

    Let's see )

    1. Tempestic

      Yeh i'm gonna hold still. Want to see if united can beat a team that sits back against them

    2. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I do see your point, and i'm kind of in agreement somewhat even though i did the switch before, but watching him cosely, his confidence is just sky hight at the moment, and after that City win we'll be on top of the world. Everton will be a test but feel comfortable having him for it now, plus all the set pieces, just involved in everything.

      1. Zico Senna

      Jim is Mr Consistent

      It’s going to take an injury to knock me off Vardy Jim Ings. Don’t see the value in spending transfers out of any of them

      They al performed really well last season too - Ings was right up there with them really (certainly for value) but injury blighted.

    4. ALegendJ

      1. Zico Senna
        • 8 Years

        This is something i took into account also, plus Jimi did look bloody knackered last night.

    5. Alan The Llama
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I don't own him, yet. He seems to be playing much more instinctively, hitting shots very early. He keeps doing that, I'm worried he's going to keep scoring.

  10. ALegendJ

    Wow, 10 players at home this GW for me! Only Ryan away at Palace!

    Watch an away GW masterclass 😀

    1. Alan The Llama

      2. Vasqujg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Somewhere between 30 and 45 points - especially when the Liverpool assets take a rest.

        Everybody scores, except your players

    2. Gnu Scott talent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I'd be surprised if most teams don't have 11 home, you've got Pope, Henderson & Guaita making up the trickier GK spot.

      1. ALegendJ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Mainly Spurs and City assets away

    3. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Yeah i surprisingly noticed a lot of home players next GW too! 9 out of 11 here, just Son & Alli away, but yes, we all know how that previous home fest GW worked out hehe

      1. Gnu Scott talent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Spurs are the obvious exception and the dinosaurs persisting with Citeh options.

      Only Son and KDB away for me for 17. That ain’t bad and three home on the bench and nice fixtures
      My “away” week this week has done much better than the two previous “home weeks”. Never can tell what will happen.

      1. ALegendJ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Home is definitely preferred, but people always seem pessimistic about having too many playing at home which makes no sense 😀

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          It’s preferred of course. Just gets me thinks there is a haul incoming and it’s rarely that straight forward.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years

            Yea probably the high expectations, but when 6 of my player are playing for top 2 teams at home vs the bottom 2 teams of the league, i should be allowed to dream big 😀

      Here's hoping for some better home performances!

      GW14 - 9 at home - 55 points
      GW15 - 10 at home - 44 points
      GW16 - 2 at home - 80 points

    I just used 2 FT to get rid of Tomori and Stephens for
    Kelly and Traore.
    Can I bench all 3 pool in GW18 or should I use a free before GW18 to ditch 1 pool and have someone who can come off the bench?

    Guaita

    Robbo TAA Lundstram

    Mane KDB Son Tielmans

    Vardy Abraham Ings

    McGovern Traore Soy Kelly

      Wait and see what happens, midweek and a whole GW before making this decision

      Not worth a hit this week I'd say

        2 months, 17 days ago

        Thanks. Was not intending to, probably not even if I have a mid week casualty. Bench can be used and use the FT for 18 to fix it.

    Guys
    How's this looking?
    Pope Heaton
    Robertson soy lundstram Rico cathcart
    Mane kdb maddison pulisic alli
    Ings vardy mousset

    1ft, 0.6 and wc left
    Plan was to downgrade maddison and upgrade ings but both are on form. Any suggestions?

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I would hold. If you really want to Guaita in for one of the keepers with the FT.

      Getting Rashford seems the popular move. I'd wait and see though

      Any ideas what to do here?

        Maybe downgrade a midfielder to upgrade Mousset?

        1. iL PiStOlErO
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Was thinking maybe Puli Mousse for Tammy and someone but not sure

        Maddison is absolutely flying this season, one of my better decisions along with KDB from GW1

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Yes, highly involved in open play and on most set pieces

                Sure, you keep misquoting adages so they make no sense. I'm not concerned.

                  You’re clearly concerned because you corrected it.

                    I was concerned that you'd merely made an error. It turns out you didn't know what it meant, which is why I'm not concerned.

          One of my biggest mistakes was not bringing him in instead of Tielemans which i shouldn't of done as i absolutely wanted Maddi, the decisions we make hey hehe.
          That, along with wticking with Salah over Mane too long.
          Lessons learnt, mane the man now and aim to have Maddison by GW 20 😉

            I made the same error but I was short cash. Tielmans is lying too deep but stuck with him for now. Might be good this week though as it looks like he does ok against poor opposition at home.

            1. Zico Senna
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Yeah i think i was short on cash as well at the time, but i've had enough of him, so sacrificed him before for Rashford. I'd of been benching him anyway next GW, gone back to playing 343 😉

              Even though it's likely i won't be going for him, a fanyastic option to bring into your team.

              People owned McGin, and I just don't understand why not Grealish

                • 2 Years
                2 months, 17 days ago

                They (Grealish and McGinn) were both playing midfield trio in a 433 with 2/3 of ElGhazi, Trezeguet, Jota as wing attackers; now Grealish plays in front 3

              Grealish is a clever, clever lad and just finds a way to make things happen and create opportunities.

              Damn shame if Villa get relegated. Grealish is great

              1. GuenDoozy
                  2 months, 17 days ago

                  He will still be in the PL if they get relegated. The price they will get for him can help them rebuild their entire squad. If OX was worth 40m, he is too

              Just come off my benching nightmare by ditching Pulisic for Grealish. But by 19 I could revert to the hyper front 8 look!!!

                I would pick 7 and put the money into defence. Having to bench one of them each week is a nightmare!
                Don’t got back there.

              A) Son and Ings
              B) Maddison and Rashford
              C) Alli and Abraham

              Already have attacking cover from Spurs, Leicester and United if that makes a difference

                Probably C, maybe A I don’t like B - not because of Maddison :;

              280k to 900k in three GWs is one way of losing interest in FPL 🙁

                              Hmmm. The 21, 14 and 12 point hauls coupled with his high ownership deter me. But you may have a point, I also have Hendo for CS cover. Cheers

                      Best move here? WCing for GW20 so only 3 weeks to consider:

                      A) Pukki -> Ings
                      B) Save FT
                      C) Something else

                      Ryan
                      TAA, Lundstram, Söyüncü
                      Salah, Son, Pulisic, JWP
                      Vardy, Abraham, Pukki

                      Button, Aurier, Dendoncker, Williams
                      Bank 0.9m, 1FT, WC available

                        2 months, 17 days ago

                        So you still have first WC?
                        A bit B works good too.
                        The only probably with A is you get 2 goods weeks not 3 before GW20

                          Yep, still have first WC...

                          Edging towards B as it means I’ll have 2FT for GW18 when I’ll likely shift Salah. Could then do something like:

                          Salah/JWP -> KDB/Alli or Sterling/Zaha

                      2. mount to martial
                      3. kdb to salah and mount to dendocker for -4 to save funds to upgrade next week

                        Losing a Chelsea player this week doesn't sound good.

                        Martial is not a great replacement for mount.

                        Rash is looking better Tammy

                        No -4, especially for Salah

                            The united double up looks good for gw18

                                It will be either Martial or Grealish for me, already own Rash

                                  FYI, grealish is on 4yc so thats a concern

                            Keep KDB or wat to do?

                                I have let go. Hes playing as a deeper mid, David Silva easily better value playing pretty much the same role. Towards the left.

                                Dele alli is playing as a 2nd striker

                                Yea i have Alli. Planning to out Jimenez, Doherty to rashford, Fernandez. So just thought any better option with kdb

                              Silly question but if i have Mane as cap, Vardy as vice and Kelly first sub does the captaincy switch to Vardy and Kelly comes off the bench for Mane? Thanks guys.

                                Yes, you get Vardy as a double and Kelly’s 8 points

                                Subtle boast ? 🙂
                                I got Son VC for Mane - not as good
                                And Soy off the bench again not as good.

                                haha honest question mate. Never actually been in that situation so thought id double check just in case i get my hopes up for no reason. And could be worse that Son VC. I'm just glad Mane didn't come on for a cameo 🙂

                              Week 18 came early for me- Mane and TAA gave me 1 point this week

                              Shows that two players don’t make a team

                              Now what to do about week 18?

                                  I will bench them both and start Kelly and Rico

                                      Also get Grealish in for Pulisic

                                  Got a pretty strong bench as trying to prep for GW18 with triple pool.
                                  So I can only play one of these. Who do I play?
                                  Actually can you order in preference so I get bench order opinion too. Ta.

                                          ACBD as I think brighton cud score at palace and Lund is likely to get attacking returns vs villa at home

                                        Looks good, trying to decide between Vardy and Salah for captaincy myself. Vardy probably the safest option.
