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.

          yip, Everton looked like a team possessed on the weekend, worked very hard and I don’t see the counter attack options for Utd.

          Will wait a week, then do Mane & Ings to Alli & Rashford 🙂

      I am getting Rashford for Pukki. Does mean funding by getting rid of KdB.

      get both ?

      B

    2. The Units

    Could only afford one of KDB and Son, and I made the switch

    Son is captain material in 18 at home to Chelsea. KDB is not, home to Leicester.

    Son is captain material in 19 at home to Brighton. KDB is not, away at Wolves

    Son is captain material in 20 away at Norwich, KDB is captain material at home to Sheffield United

    Son is captain material in 21 away at Southampton, KDB is not, at home to Everton (presuming they continue an upturn in form under big dunc shown against CHE)

    You get the idea (*imo only)

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      With Son at 10 mil is making KdB look cheap lol. I got Alli instead.

      1. GuenDoozy
        6 months, 26 days ago

        you are joking right? KDB got 34 points in the last 8 games. just over 4ppm. If he continues in this deeper role he should be the same price as dilva

        1. The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          Maybe the stubborn in me!

          1. GuenDoozy
            6 months, 26 days ago

            the stubborn ones are suffering this season

            1. RECKLESS
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              6 months, 26 days ago

              Difference between stubborn and patience. Keeping Abraham and Salah patience, keeping Mcginn, Manutd defence stubborness. All depends on underlying stats

              1. The Units
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                6 months, 26 days ago

                Yep I am convinced. KdB is gone this week from my team.

              2. GuenDoozy
                6 months, 26 days ago

                I thought I was being patient with Sterling, but that can soon turn into stubbornness, as I learnt the hard way constantly captaining him. Good riddance.

                1. GuenDoozy
                  6 months, 26 days ago

                  His underlying stats were great, but didn't translate to points. Same can be said for Vardy.

                  This season is more about keeping it simple and not overthinking it. A Duncan Ferguson style season, not Marcos Silva.

                  1. GuenDoozy
                    6 months, 26 days ago

                    The inverse can be said for Vardy*

    2. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      I did KDB to Son for a hit yesterday. Feels amazing.

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      have you compared the two with the Members comparison tool ? I think you may take a -4 to switch them back 😉

      1. GuenDoozy
        6 months, 26 days ago

        45 vs 23 points in the last 5 is enough of a stat for me

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          can’t get those points now, they are gone 😉

          1. GuenDoozy
            6 months, 26 days ago

            already got them 😉

            1. GuenDoozy
              6 months, 26 days ago

              but even for people comparing, form is a thing you wouldn't consider? points brought from good form are gone, but the stats in your members area are also based on historical data, so technically they are gone too 😉

              1. Hotdogs for Tea
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                6 months, 26 days ago

                have to judge some how, form the best guide imho.

                I just think that selling KdB when he is making chances, on set pieces and corners, getting in shots, involved in everything, just because of a couple of blanks is a bit ill judged ... goals and assists will come.

                I will sell Mane next week to get Alli along side Son & KdB

      2. bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        I get it, but ...eye test and gut just say that City are not the team they were last season and Spurs are riding a wave

        1. RECKLESS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          That probably makes Manutd most inform team right now 🙂 It only gets better with Pogba back on weekend for Lingard

        2. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          City still the top scorers in the league, even after a quite spell ... going to explode this coming gameweek 😉

        3. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 19 days ago

          😉

    4. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      oops 😉

      1. bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah that hurts 🙁

  5. Over Midwicket
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    Danny Ings quierly challenging for Vardy's record as well. #undertheradar

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Very tough glass so far, must be the reinforced stuff.

    2. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Its great they have only epl plus early subs help him be fit. But he will soon make way for Rahsford in my team. After avl ofcourse. Can score brace there as they have worst headers conceded this season. And Ings has good heading

  6. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 26 days ago

    Better option for the next few gws? Have both currently.

    a. Son
    b. alli
    c. both

    1. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      C then A them B

    2. Zlatanzo
      6 months, 26 days ago

      A disregarding price, think Alli could be good value though for 1.5 less.

  7. Zlatanzo
    6 months, 26 days ago

    Need some better bench cover, how's this transfer for free?
    Jimi + Hayden --> Grealish + Maupay/Jota/Ayew

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Grealish on 4 yellow cards

      1. Zlatanzo
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Will have my 3rd attacker to cover, not really a big deal for me

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          are you going to have one of Grealish + Maupay/Jota/Ayew on your bench ? and one of those instead of Jiminez starting ?

      2. RECKLESS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Which gw it resets? Thank you for insight. i thought he was the one getting fouled and others shown Ycs. Diving perhaps

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          GW20 i think

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Yeah nah

    3. Sailboats
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      3-4-3 is the superior formation. So its a no imo

  8. Lingard’s Shin Guards
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 26 days ago

    Just some early thoughts - Mousset, Pulisic -> Rashford, Dendoncker (-4) look like solid moves or not worth the -4? Team’s looking like this:

    Guaita
    TAA Soy Lund
    Mane KDB Son Maddison Pulisic
    Vardy Tammy

    Button Kelly Mousset Rico (1FT 1.3m itb)

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      looks good

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      I like the moves it's the -4 that's the issue.

  9. Christina.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    whats happened? I thought we were not allowed to sell KdB...season keeper...underpriced by 1.5m etc etc...

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      No such thing this season I reckon!

    2. GuenDoozy
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Gone from my team. Bought Tottenhams 2nd striker to add to their star winger in my midfield.

      1. RECKLESS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Alli or Moura. Moura doesnt seem nailed to me

        1. GuenDoozy
          6 months, 26 days ago

          Alli, playing just off Kane. Pretty much a 9 and a half

    3. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Knee jerkers you see. The same ones who sold Salah before his boytoy Bou :p. I am actually looking to get Kdb for Salah after watford if he shines. Will be good differential

      1. The Dance
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        And yet not really, Salah has been a poor pick all season. KDB is no exception.

    4. 404_FC
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      he hav to gone for my team too

    5. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Just like Salah owners who kept him for so long, FOMO! 😆

      (I was one of them tbh)

      1. RECKLESS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        I had mane and vardy with Salah as well. Hope you had kept him for Bou match

    RMT. Cheers!

    Pope (Gazzaniga)
    TAA / Chilwell / Kelly / Lundstram (Rico)
    KDB / Mane / Alli / Maddison (Moutinho)

    Should i start Maddison or Jimmy?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Maddy in the team on a roll.

    2. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      I would do Maddison

    3. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      I benched Kelly, as I lile to play my full attack over defence due to being more fun and higher pts ceiling, but i did this time as well for Soyuncu so not the best advice

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Anyone watched how Chelsea played lately?

      Were they unfortunate not to score,.. or was it their opponents shut them down?

      I would prefer Rash or Ings (plus some cash) to Tammy

      1. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Saw only Everton game and they were clueless

        But some are saying Everton played extraordinary, so...

  16. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 26 days ago

    Kane to Rashford for free?

    Enables Pulisic & Tielemans to Son & Grealish next week.

    1. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      I would do it, as I personally feel Son and Alli will be more valuable than Kane in long term

    2. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          did you not Kane(c)? I got it all wrong with my 2 ft's. Sold Kane. Dammit.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 26 days ago

            Vardy(c)

            Yeah I saw you sold him. Still the right decision long term his heatmap against Burnley wasn't much better than it was against United.

      Think Rashford outscores Kane this GW?

      1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        I think so. Wolves will be a tough one for Spurs.
        Plus the longer I keep him I will be stuck with him.
        Still not convinced he was that great against Burnley.

        1. The Dance
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          Disagree, think spurs will be all over wolves, but dele and son to profit more

        2. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          Fair enough, Wolves just conceded 2 to Brighton.
          Everton on the bounce.

          1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 26 days ago

            Everton attacking will only help United.

    4. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Yes

    Which 3 teams do you think will get relegated this season.?

    For me it has to be

    Norwich
    Watford
    Newcastle

    1. villian-ty
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      villa look poor

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        I think they have good enough consistent players to survive relegation.

      newcassle? no way

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Too inconsistent players like Almiron Maximin and shelvey. Not having a proper striker in joelinton is big worry for toon.

        1. RECKLESS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          They are playing very since last gw. Form picked up. A team who can draw against champions will find very bad luck to get relegated

          1. HurriKane
            • 7 Years
            6 months, 26 days ago

            Norwich beat mancity no ?

            Cant draw too much conclusion from one freak result

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          maybe, but they are still 7 pts ahead of drop zone

    3. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Burnley, Norwich, Watford

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Burnley will be ok i reckon. Woiod Barnes and McNeiil a good front line to rely upon for rest of season

    4. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Definitely not Manutd! At one point it was looking like that with people here as well saying its big possibility.
      Watford AVL Norwich

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Arsenal in current form worth considering ? 😉

    5. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years

      Arsenal will at the current form. Shambles.

  18. Christina.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    There is only one winner between Tammy and Jimenez in the last 4-6 weeks....

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Abraham

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        nope

    2. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Next 4-6 is what we care for now and it has to be Abraham after Wolves vs Nor GW

    3. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Keeping Jimenez for the next 2. I think he'll come good.

    4. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      only one winner where it matters .... in the final third 😉

      Jimi more involved in the game and a great all round player whilst Tammy is where we want him ... close to goal.

      It’s why Tammy has 5 double digit hauls and Jimi has just one

      1. The Dance

    Hey TM guess you around. I was curious about your thought process of playing Kelly over Soy? Both had good cs record but dint Watford getting new manager spook you they will be inspired and play better? I just cant get my 50-50 decisions right this season!

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Villa score most weeks.
      Scout Picks article spells Watford out.
      Soy nearly scored but glad he didn't.
      Cantwell nearly scored as a sub so lose a point there.
      Didn't see the point in getting Kelly if not playing him.

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Well done. Ive benched 3cs from Kelly in last 3 gws

        Went with template back 3 of TAA Soy Lundy

      2. RECKLESS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Cantwell and Soy nearly scored?!Damn the badluck :/ He is my first sub for Mane, second kelly. Before that I missed Cantwell 2 10pointers and Rico 9.
        This gw should I play kelly over Jiminez?

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          Play Jimmy.

          1. RECKLESS
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            6 months, 26 days ago

            Thanks TM. Good logic behind AVL attacking prowess. Should take RMT with pinch of salt after situational analysis

            1. TorresMagic™
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 11 Years
              6 months, 26 days ago

              Yeah, noticed Kelly was on my RMT bench but double Palace in the Scout Picks. Was obviously a risk due to ownership but got me a 80K boost for getting it right.

      3. MC Hammer
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Are you playing Kelly next week? Ahead of who?

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          Benched probably.
          Soy, Dunk or Kelly for the 3rd spot.
          Palace hardly score, Brighton struggle away in defence so it's a tricky one

          1. MC Hammer
            • 7 Years
            6 months, 26 days ago

            Similar dilemma for me with the def of:
            TAA, Lund, Soy, Kelly and Rico
            might have to play 4 atb

      4. RECKLESS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Is kelly that good? Seen no chance creation from when I checked his stats. I just got him to fund Alli lol.

  20. rokonto

    Is Son going off soon? Asia cup or something

    1. The Dance

      Nah

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years

      No, only domestic players.

  21. RECKLESS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 26 days ago

    I hope Jiminez gets his rest in mid week Europa as they qualified just fight for 1st place remaining. Just play next 2 epl games Jim! Do it for Slimjims!

    1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      They will definitely rest.

    2. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Most likely rested.

    3. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      He is probably suspended for that game

  22. MC Hammer
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 26 days ago

    Who's the best budget goal keeper right now? Pope, Hendo, Guiata, Gazza?

    1. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      People will say Guaita due to recency bias but put off by 5mn tag for a bottim 10 team.0.5mn is very imp for.me as I dont knee jerk players in and need as much as possible for Alli Son Mane KDB/Maddo midfield

      1. MC Hammer
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        I think it's more than recency bias, Palace are generally quite solid at home and they've improved away as well now.
        Although, the caveat is their injury list but they will still keep as many clean sheets as the other budget teams i think.

        Unless Spurs show some consistency...

      2. Jurgen Flopp
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        In denial

    2. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Guaita by a mile.

  23. RECKLESS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 26 days ago

    One last gw till my Salah+Mane combo differential vs hapless Watford..Hope they repeat what they did in past h2h...Then 2 FTs to clean the mess and get some grealish punts and Son/kdb ore WC

    Is it madness doing TAA -> Aurier?

    Will prob have some rotation with the world club ch.ship and spurs have good fixs over christmas

    1. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      No, TAA needs to go asap. Awful fixtures after WAT and a waste of money.

      1. thomashl
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Cheers. Yeah I was thinking that if he’ll only play 2/3 of the mext games, his score might well be eclipsed of aurier’s. Gotta do something to move up the rankings. A rare pool cleanie this weekend with robbo owners benefitting spread salt in my TAA wounds

    2. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      For.me TAA is a winger who gets cleanie pts. If you have to remove do in a way you can get him back in 1FT as well

    3. MC Hammer
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      I wouldn't do that, TAA is a keeper

      1. thomashl
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Cheers. The rationale is that if he plays 3/5 matches over christmas and gets 2-3 returns, he might still get outscored by aurier. I realise the risk in this move and also thought about him as a season keeper. Hmm.

    4. Spark Dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Yep, madness. TAA season keeper.

    Henderson

      Would still bench Soy over Lund due to Lund attacking potential, particularly at home v Villa next game.

      No other option but to bench Lundstram.

    Good morning DZ.

    KDB out for Alli?

    Have Son.

    KDB is playing better than his FPL points suggest. Forwards are not finishing the chances that he creates, but he isn't taking to many shots on goal.

    Arsenal next. Which is a great fixture for City, but if City score easily then KDB won't be needed.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks.

      KDB isn't needed midweek.

        6 months, 26 days ago

        You think KDB is a keeper?

          When City are scoring for fun, yeah.

            But they clearly aren't at the moment.

              United was always going to be tough.
              Arsenal are naive and leak to everyone so anything is possible.

              1. EmreCan Hustle
                • 7 Years
                6 months, 26 days ago

                True.

            I think Jesus's movements are different from Aguero's. Not suited to KDB.

    2. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Depends how you spend the left overs.

      1. EmreCan Hustle
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Jimenez to Tammy or Rashford probably. Both free transfers.

        1. Konstaapeli

          6 months, 26 days ago

          Sounds good to me.

        Wolves away won’t be easy for Spurs though. I have Alli which in my view is enough for this coming GW

        1. EmreCan Hustle

          With Wolves playing midweek this season their defense isn't as good. Less time to prepare and Boly injured. Spurs might do well.
