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.

    I want Son and will not get rid of KDB, I guess TAA will have to be the the one to go...

    1. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Same dilemma. If kdb blanks against arsenal id defo sell him for Son

      Otherwise TAA will make way for Aurier

    1. Downgrade TAA to Kelly to get money for Mousset to Rashford

    2. Get Alli in for KDB to get Rashford in for Ings

    3. Grealish in for Pulisich to afford Rashford in for Ings

    1. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Wouldnt sell Ings who has 8 goals in last 10 pl starts

    Save FT and give Pulisic the BOU match provided he isn’t run into the ground in UCL? Or just do Pulisic to Alli, quit playing about? 1.3 ITB so 0.1 buffer on that move. Would like Son but no way yet without ditching KDB

    Pope (Martin)
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram (Kelly Rico)
    Mane KDB Maddison Pulisic (Dendoncker)

      Wait for the UCL. If Pulisic gets a breather, save for sure. Great looking team. Should do well for you with Pulisic or Alli.

            He loves playing vs « top6 » teams, and so do Wolves. Bad idea imo.

            I hope Shaqiri is a pre-WC punt? Not sure he will start many games you know.

            1. FirMinaMiMo

    It Cost -4 for next GW

    A bit lost here between all the options and prices are rising fast

    Mane, Pulisic, KdB, Alli, Zaha
    Vardy, Tammy

    Button, Jimenez, Aurier, Hanley
    1FT, 0.1 ITB

    A - KdB, Jimenez -> Maddison, Rashford (-4)
    B - KdB -> Maddison (and give Zaha last chance (BRI))
    C - KdB -> Son (before his price goes to the moon)
    D - TAA, Jimenez -> Kelly, Rashford (-4)
    E - save

    1. Rocky.007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      If you want to do Jimenez to Rashford, I would consider downgrading Zaha

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        This. Go 343

      2. afsr
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        was thinking of getting Grealish as 5th mid, but not enough money will become available from Zaha downgrade for getting Rashford. That's why i'm saving that transfer for GW 18

        1. Rocky.007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          Play 3-4-3. Aurier is good enough to be first sub. You dont need Grealish to be a second sub. Get someone cheaper like Dendoncker.

    TAA owners keeping?

    TAA last 9 gws

    3, 2, 1, 7, 2, 2, 10, 3, 1

    7 blanks in 9 and a rotation risk due to liverpool fixture pile up is a worrying sign

    Really tempted to switch to Aurier and use funds to upgrade Pulisic to Son (spurs mid double up)

    1. Unliklinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Keeping for this week, switch to Aurier next

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Same thinking. Can always bring him back when liverpool defence improves

        Right now he isnt justifying hefty 7.2m price tag

      2. The Man Pastore
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        same here

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      If he gets dropped in the next three will be gone.

    3. drughi

      Thats the weeks I've owned him, me and TAA never get along

    4. Atimis

      3 months, 22 days ago

      Switching to Aurier probably after next week

    5. Atimis
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Also TAA would allow me to upgrade 5th bench mid to Grealish

    1 FT, 0.2 ITB. Seems like easy save.
    Need exit plan for Mount after this GW. Even Tammy might go.

      Save this week mate

    Who would you start this week?

    A) Aurier (wol)
    B) Pukki (lei)

    Also starting Söyüncü

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      A

    2. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      I would use one FT to get rid of Pukki and start the new boy.

      1. Jinswick
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Could go Ings but that would give me double SOT attack.

        Planning to use my first WC for GW20 so only 3 weeks to consider...

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

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

        1. Pieterke30
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          You could also do Pukki to Jimenez.

          1. Jinswick
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 22 days ago

            0.1 short, although Jimi could drop this week.

            Then again he has TOT, nor, MCY up next which doesn’t look that profitable

            1. Pieterke30
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 21 days ago

              Next two do look very profitable to me. And he got two assists last time he played City.

    Already done Lacazette > Rashford with 1ft, what to do with the other?

    Pope
    TAA Söyüncü Lundstram
    Mane Son Martial Zaha
    Vardy Rashford Jimenez

    Button Aurier Cantwell Mings

    0.5 itb

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Hold and then get rid of Zaha.

      1. FirMinaMiMo
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Upgrade zaha>maddison

    2. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Save it

    3. maratus
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Get rid of Martial

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Zaha more the issue.

    4. maratus
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      I would prolly save and monitor Richarlison one more week.
      If he does well, i would do Martial to Richarlison

    So many pple doing transfers before mid week games....

      Thats amazing, because Kun Aguero will score hatty 😉

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Many don’t wait if they know what they want.

    3. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      I've still got my WC so can take a few risks with early transfers.

  22. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
    • 7 Years

    Is Aurier injured ?

      Mourinho : "A perfect day. No injuries, a clean sheet, goals, perfect football, kids coming on for first Premier League football."

        Awesome ! 🙂

    Only Liv, Manutd, Chelsea Burnley, Arsenal have 3 days between boxing day matches. So players from these teams will face lowest rotation. Rashford Wan Bissaka Abraham Mane Vanddijk James Tarkowski look like the gems in the busy schedule. mancity, spurs and Wolves have it bad so probably need strong bench regardless

    1. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Mourinho will always start his magic three wont he?

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Good bench needed this time of year.

    3. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Mourinho won't rotate his team.
      He's already said that he will rest players this week in CL and next midweek they will anyways rest because they are out of EFL Cup.

      Can see them starting all matches.

    4. Zlatanzo
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Burnley players and gems don't go in the same sentence.

  24. g40steve

    Look set for weekend?

    Mid week might do Mousett > Rashford?

    Hendo,
    Lundstram, Trent, Soy
    Mane, Grealish, Son, Alli, Maddy
    C Vardy, Tammy

    Button, Kelly, Mousett, Rico

  25. Zlatanzo

    How's Jimi to Jota/Ayew to afford Hayden to Grealish?

    1. maratus
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Grealish is not that great.

  26. Aftermath
    • 4 Years

    Had a decent week but really torn on what to do next.
    Want to get Alli and son but no obvious path unless I downgrade somewhere. Thoughts?

      KDB easy move & one thousands did yesterday.

      1. FirMinaMiMo
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Imo ...kdb will punish the sold out players lol..

    2. FirMinaMiMo
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Downgrade taa & pulisic to get alli over this gw...
      And get son at gw18 by ditching kdb

  27. FirMinaMiMo
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Armbands this gw !!!!

    Sounds like a 50-50% case for mane and vardy both home and favourable fixtures... think so.

    Right???

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Vardy it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

      1. FirMinaMiMo
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Vardy (c) for me also mate...but i m suggesting that both mane and vardy have a equal probability equal fixtures for them to score ...so if vardy gets 10 points mane too gets 10 points in this gw

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Vardy Capt

    3. Zlatanzo
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Vardy, staying away from Watford manager bounce

      1. FirMinaMiMo
        3 months, 22 days ago

        But klopp is one step above to continue his streak....a considerable point 🙂

    Jimenez->Abraham? I can do it only today (Abraham will rise and Jimenez fall).

    stats don`t support that move, but still tempted..

    1. Zlatanzo
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Fairly sideways, go with your gut if you have no other issues

    2. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I did - BOU too good an opportunity to miss

    3. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Jimi is a great player but Tammy will hurt you more when he scores.
