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.

          That's one that I've been considering. But then KDB has arsenal this weekend so might wait a week.

          1. GuenDoozy

          Bench order ?

          But yes, hold the free transfer and decide what to do with your Liverpool players next week

      • mazkills
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        How do you feel about this team and two free transfers...missing the boat lately with no spurs, Maddison, Ings, etc...

        Ryan
        Taa-Lund-Soy
        Mo-KDB-Alli-Mount
        Tammy-Vardy-Raul

        (Sterling>Alli and Mousset>Tammy)

        Could also do Sterling>Son and Mousset>Ings

        1. MoManeTaa
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          wud keep sterling for mighty gunners

        2. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          both good, Son’s stats are better than Alli’s now generally, but Tammy is a better choice than Ings.

          Who are your subs ?

          I would consider using one transfer to deal with your bench and future rotation and saving a FT to have two for next week to dump your Liverpool players

          1. mazkills
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 22 days ago

              ouch ... I would swap Tomori out for a Palace defender after the midweek games and revisit it all next week

      • SkeletONv01

        Mane - Son - Alli - KDB - Maddison
        Vardy - Abraham - Conolly

        2FT, is it crazy to drop KDB? Thinking about Tomori, KDB, Conolly > Aurier, Cantwell, Rashford -4.

        1. MoManeTaa
          • 2 Years

          yes keep kdb

            • 7 Years
            3 months, 22 days ago

            Son, Grealish over Alli, Maddison better going forward I think

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              Son over Alli, but not Grealish over Madds

              1. olidooley
                • 7 Years

                As a pair against pair I mean...similar cost

      • Lalrota
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Is a 160 point deficit too high a hill to climb in Mini league at this stage?

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years

          No but lots of luck needed.

        2. Happy Chappy
          • 6 Years

          Tough going

        3. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          Have to outscore him by around 7pts per week. Getting captaincy, chips right will be important.

          1. Lalrota
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 22 days ago

            Cheers All

          Definitely not, will need consistent captain picks and nail the chips when it comes to the DGWs

        Hello dz,

        Those who still have wildcard, what are your plans for the next 3 gws? I'm quite perplexed by the gw18 fixtures as none of the top sides have a good fixture on paper with Pool blank, MCI vs LEI, Spurs vs CHE.

        I'm trying to have 2 FTs going into gw18 and would probably target MUN's assets like Rashford.
        So probably getting rid of Mane + Jimenez, not sure about Robbo as I could just bench him.

        GW 19 - Pool facing Leicester so hold off first?
        WC gw20 to bring Pool assets back.

        What are your current plans?

                      They put 4 past Burnley on Tuesday night. He was a Lindelof leg away from a goal and multiple assists. Not shipping him just yet. Aguero back would help mind ...

                        Thanks for reminding me about the block from Lindelof.
                        His celebration after that was special. Loved the passion 😮

                            All on the line. Rainy day at Stoke that’s bulging the net.

                              I miss the Rainy, windy games at Stoke City stadium 😮
                              Likes of Showcross looked monster in those games.

                            And he got nothing in that game. Other than Arsenal game, I doubt they will score more than couple of goals in upcoming weeks, even that would be a huge task.

                            If I could get Alli, I wouldn't even have a 2nd thought getting rid of him 😀

                                Leicester won’t park the bus, I doubt Wolves will either. Scoring goals is rarely a City problem, United played nine at the back with De Gea in top form.

                                  "We Defended as a team" is much better 😀

                                      One more GW of information could help too. The thought of going without City attack is scary though

                                      Yes, it's tempting. But, having watched Vardy score 2 yesterday has put it back on him.
                                      He's just on a fun ride atm. Norwich are pathetic too. Not going to overthink it

                                        am on Mane

                                        as I think Vardy will be 5 or 6 points like against Watford, where as pool are gonna smash Watford to 4 or 5

                                          Cool.
                                          I'm backing Vardy to score at least a goal & an assist.
                                          Norwich play attacking football & give space in behind.

                                    Don't have FT atm so have to keep him.
                                    Will swap around GW 19/20 i guess

                                Hi guys! Finally on the right track, went up from 1.9m to 1.3m in the last 3 GWs. Still a lot of work to do though. Top 200k is my new season goal.

                                Team for GW17 is :

                                Henderson
                                TAA Lundstram Kelly
                                Mané KDB Son Maddison Zaha
                                Vardy Abraham

                                Button Dunk Connolly Rico

                                1 FT, £0.4 itb

                                I think I'll hold, but have you any advice on possible moves ?

                                Cheers all.

                                  Looks good for this week. If somehow you can convert Zaha to Rashford, that would be nice.

                                  Save & move to 343 next GW probably ?
                                  So many strikers doing good that playing 2 looks like wasting a precious resource

                                Should you save FT? Any other suggestion?

                                    Thanks, that was my plan too. I am gonna have to make another transfer transfer to free up some funds tho (0.3m).
                                    Will probably be Chilwell to Aurier.

                                a - Grealish (locked)
                                b - El Ghazi ? is he nailed, he looked gud yesterday

                                or is double up unnecessary?

                                  How can you play both is my question. Double up can be good considering price & fixtures tbh

                                              Any other mid interests u for GW18 who cud be a differential?

                                              gonna use 2 FTS to do KDB + Dendonker ➡ Grealish + 8.5

                                                Richarlison is also a good punt

                                  Will probably be rotated with Trezeguet but thats fine at that price

                                    Instead of double up, you can try Shelvey. Cheap enough to bench.

                                  Have exactly the funds right now to swap Abraham & Son to Rashford & Alli for a -4. Pull the trigger?

                                    That's a weird one for -4pts. No for me

                                        Fixtures turn for Chelsea after Bournemouth.

                                          - they all have great fixtures this week
                                          - you're including Son to Alli in the transfer

                                          Wait a week, then find another way to Alli (Tammy>Ings for example), which means you might not be able to have Rashford. Can't have em all

                                          review it after Bournemouth then ?

                                    1FT, can't see anything obvious?

                                      Yeah, I would save the FT

                                    Gtg? Any pressing changes needed? 0.1itb, 0ft. Can sense that it’s gonna be a tricky week for captaincy.

                                    Considering getting in Lindelof for the matches against Watford & Newcastle.
                                    Can we expect a CS from United?

                                      I would say so. Defense is getting better and better
                                      Might consider Maguire again

                                      Watford, yes

                                      It's frustratingly difficult to defend Newcastle's set pieces, so that's less likely

                                      Popular FFS players on 4 yellow cards ... could be tricky in GW18 with Liverpool blanking and if these guys pick up a card in GW17 ... transfers are precious 😉

                                        Lundstram would be bad one to take.
                                        Believe me i resisted getting Grealish this GW for a hit because of 4 YC situation

                                        Looks nice after GW18.
                                        Arsenal should give chances and even Leicester likely to concede.

                                          I am thinking of dropping until City gets back to form, anyways only an assist provider not a goal scorer

                                                No City returns come from any of the 10 players on pitch so even though KDB has a high chance of getting an attacking return but I like Son and Tottenham more according to current form and future fixtures.
                                                Also, City is no more fixture proof

                                            He's gone for me
                                            I just feel like Son is the better option over the medium term, and I could only have one of them

                                              Mane (vc) didn't play and I got Kelly as my first sub. Why didn't it autosub Kelly to 4-3-3 formation?
