Spurs still lacking attacking edge despite win over Norwich

Spurs 2-1 Norwich

  • Goals: Dele Alli (£8.5m), Son Heung-min (£9.9m) | Teemu Pukki (£6.5m)
  • Assists: Serge Aurier (£5.0m), Alli | Max Aarons (£4.3m)
  • Bonus Points: Alli x3, Pukki x2, Aurier x1

Norwich City’s defence continues to help boost the Fantasy Premier League prospects of their opponents this season.

Spurs came into Double Gameweek 24 with just one win in their previous six league matches but emerged 2-1 victors while forgotten about assets such as Son Heung-min (£9.9m) and Dele Alli (£8.5m) delivered for their remaining owners.

Ironically, neither player had a particularly impressive game, and Norwich actually held Spurs at bay for much of the evening, but, with key centre-back Ben Godfrey (£4.4m) suspended, the points came nonetheless, as they usually do against the Canaries.

Daniel Farke’s men continue to be the most scored-on team this season (47 goals conceded), which bodes well for Newcastle, Liverpool, Wolves and Leicester assets as they face them in the next four Gameweeks.

Furthermore, the longer Norwich stay rooted to the foot of the Premier League table, the more they may have to push forward in their remaining matches, thus exposing their already soft centre.

“We know it will be a big sensation – maybe a miracle – that we stay in this league.” – Daniel Farke

Whether this result should put Spurs players back on the FPL radar does remain to be seen. After all, no other team has conceded as often as their most recent opponents, and it’s Manchester City up next for Jose Mourinho’s men and a trip to Chelsea in Gameweek 27.

As already mentioned, Spurs were not exactly at their best on Wednesday night. Alli started the game slowly but managed to get in the right place at the right time for his goal, and it was a deflection that saw his second-half shot find the head of Son, practically on the line. They were Alli’s first attacking returns since the Gameweek 19 win over Brighton.

Playing on the left side of an attacking midfield trio, Son spurned some decent chances in the first half and, according to the local press, is still some way off his usual “vintage self”. As already mentioned, his second-half had an element of fortune about it, the ball deflected onto his head inside the six-yard box.

Meanwhile, Moura also received some criticism from the local press in his role as a centre-forward. While he contributed plenty of runs to the team, the Brazilian did not offer much more.

Spurs are clearly missing the injured Harry Kane (£10.8m) with neither Moura or Son in a position to occupy the vacant centre-forward position with much gusto right now.

However, the hope for Spurs’ attacking potential may lie in the performances of Giovani Lo Celso (£7.3m), who continues to improve with each outing.

The Argentinian was Spurs’ best player by some considerable margin against Norwich, the creative hub in midfield and also winning the ball back on plenty of occasions.

While Lo Celso did not contribute any attacking returns on Wednesday evening, it was he who played the ball into Alli so he may start contributing FPL points soon.

“Giovani is improving game-after-game. Today he was fantastic in everything. I think he is adapting very well to the league, he can play in various positions, he gives us lots of quality, vision, passing, he is improving his offensive game, he is improving his intensity. The only thing that worries me is the new life of English football of playing and playing and playing and in this case he is now playing all the time now because we don’t have different solutions. Even today when Lamela was out, no wingers so Giovani to the wing. It’s hard but I think it’s good experience for all of us, a good experience for the family.” – Jose Mourinho

Another decent performer on Wednesday was right-back Serge Aurier (£5.0m) as he put in an assured defensive performance to keep Todd Cantwell (£5.0m) at bay and played an excellent cross in for Alli’s goal.

Meanwhile, Ryan Sessegnon (£5.4m) struggled on the other side of defence as Spurs’ left-back issues continue. The former Fulham man was pegged back by the exploits of Max Aarons (£4.3m), negating the threat on that side of the field. Sessegnon eventually brought down Norwich’s marauding right-back to give away a penalty in the second half.

Pukki celebrates a goal for Norwich

Teemu Pukki (£6.5m) slotted the spot-kick away cooly in the 70th minute to ensure Spurs’ defensive problems continue under Mourinho. Since the former Manchester United boss arrived in north London, they have conceded 1.3 goals per game while only Bournemouth, Brighton and Wolves have recorded fewer than their total of two clean sheets in that time.

With that in mind, interest in recently added budget defender Japhet Tanganga (£4.0m) may subside somewhat. The 20-year-old started both Gameweeks 22 and 23 and was also the man of the match in the FA Cup third-round replay win over Middlesbrough.

However, he was only an unused substitute against Norwich, Toby Alderweireld (£5.3m) paired with Jan Vertonghen (£5.2m) at centre-back, although the latter appears still a bit rusty.

Another budget asset that has probably been knocked firmly off then radar is goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga (£4.6m) after a surprise early return for Hugo Lloris (£5.3m).

The Frenchman was originally expected back at some point in February after fracturing his elbow in Gameweek 8 but played 90 minutes against Norwich.

Admittedly, he didn’t have a great deal to do, managing to get a palm to Pukki’s penalty in the second half.

While Gazzaniga looks to be an inactive player from here on in, it was a cause of some joy for select Fantasy managers with Dean Henderson (£5.0m) and Nick Pope (£4.6m) to emerge from some people’s benches with 11-point and 10-point hauls respectively.

“The return of Hugo is mixed emotions for me. It’s happiness to see one of the best goalkeepers in the world to be back. It’s a very good feeling for us but at the same time it is one of these decisions that sometimes we must have it, but it hurts. To leave Paulo out hurts. The good thing is that he is such a good member of the family and he is such a special friend of Hugo that I think he also shared our happiness to have Hugo back as a friend. For me, he gave me a lot of thinking and I had to try to be cold to make a decision without emotions because to leave Paolo out is not easy.” – Jose Mourinho

Finally, Harry Winks (£5.2m) was taken off injured in the 55th minute with an ankle problem but Mourinho was unable to provide any update in his post-match press conference.

“I prefer not to know before I come in here so I come with a normal face. I don’t want to come in here with a very upset face, so I’m even afraid to ask, but when I leave here I have to ask.” – Jose Mourinho

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Sessegnon, Vertonghen (Fernandes 75′), Alderweireld, Aurier; Winks (Dier 56′), Lo Celso; Son, Alli, Lamela (Eriksen 62′); Moura.

Norwich City XI (4-2-3-1): Krul; Byram, Hanley, Zimmermann, Aarons; McLean (Stiepermann 90+3′), Tettey (O Hernández 82′); Cantwell, Duda, Rupp (Drmic 86′); Pukki.

            We need more info on his injury and will are likely to get it before one of the cup games. Holding till then at least

          You just know tonight is going to be a huge anti climax for Salah triple captainers.one all draw. Jimmy and Mane with the goals.

          1. Would Ed Woodward

            1-0 Jimenez to rub more salt into the Jimenez > Ings move.

              Yeah why not. I got rid of Jimmy to fund Cantwell to Martial so I can see that happening for sure.

            Need a triple hatty from Salah in each game, otherwise worst DGW ever....currently on 19pts 😆

            1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
              • 6 Years
              27 days, 18 hours ago

              Only 81pts away from century

                • 8 Years
                27 days, 18 hours ago

                So there’s a chance?

                1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
                  • 6 Years
                  27 days, 18 hours ago

                  Yep unless only Salah is left 😉

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              27 days, 18 hours ago

              the problem is the way this GW is going, he will probably miss a penalty and score an own goal, before being sent off !

            3. Skalla
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              27 days, 18 hours ago

              So triple hatty is 9 goals in each game just to clarify? I don't have Salah so that is very possible, good luck!

            Best move:

            a) Vardy > Auba
            b) Madds, Vardy > Fleck/Traore, Aguero -4
            c) Madds > 8.8 mid (who as have Grealish) and keep Vardy

            When do we expect the next BGW & DGWs?

            Need to start planning with FT, WC & BB chips which I have left, are blowing TC on Salah for this washout DGW....

              GW28 is a possible blank, GW31 will be a multiple blank, GW34 will probably have teams with blanks and others with DGW's, and GW37 will be a DGW.

            Money become not quite important when the 8.0ish mids suddenly become a dead zone.
            Feels like it is either KDB/Mane/Salah or budget options in midfield, which free up funds to afford Aguero and LIV defenders maybe?

                Hi, all well. Is that meant to be Dougs or drugs?

                The Dougs I know are doing well at least. 🙂

            Rich & Vardy --> Fleck and Auba for - 4 hit (bringing KDB for Martial for GW 26)

            1. bigdip
              • 7 Years
              27 days, 18 hours ago

              Need help guys!

            • 7 Years
            27 days, 18 hours ago

            Those with enough funds to get either Auba or Kun for Vardy.

            Who is your pick and why?

            1. bigdip
              • 7 Years
              27 days, 18 hours ago

              Auba because:
              1. he is a good differential
              2. He will definitely start every game (compared to Pep tinkering with Jesus/Aguero)
              3. Arsenal is about to hit good form

            2. dmkp
              • 4 Years
              27 days, 18 hours ago

              Kun due to form plus that tasty GW26 fixture

              1. bigdip
                • 7 Years
                27 days, 18 hours ago

                but if you have KDB isn't that enough city cover for it?

                1. dmkp
                  • 4 Years
                  27 days, 18 hours ago

                  I've lost a 50 lead in 2 weeks due to rivals captaining Kun over the last 2 weeks, he has been a huge differential. Ignoring Kun in GW26 could be a rank killer

            3. Lukakuna
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              27 days, 18 hours ago

              Keeping Vardy as a differential 😉

            4. Jullepuu
                27 days, 18 hours ago

                Waiting for more news on Vardy (and Auba). I would get Auba over Kun

                • 2 Years
                27 days, 17 hours ago

                If you're considering Auba then factor in his possible sale:

                https://www.forbes.com/sites/tomsanderson/2020/01/23/aubameyang-gives-ok-to-fc-barcelona-move/#69bcccc0769a

                Definitely Kun but might be Auba for Burnley, then replace with Kun although Burbley fixture isn’t as tempting with Burnley improving their form and Arsenal playing away.

                Auba doesn’t play central striker so not sure if I’d even prefer him over Jimenez, Ings, etc.

                • 4 Years
                27 days, 15 hours ago

                I'm on Vardy to Auba but thankfully that price lock for 6 days stops any kneejerking

              27 days, 18 hours ago

              Maupay owners are you keeping or selling? Fixtures are good and he has been unlucky not to score lately. But is DCL too is tempting?

              1. Ajax Hamsterdam
                • 5 Years
                27 days, 18 hours ago

                I'd keep. DCL only good for another couple of gws

                • 9 Years
                27 days, 17 hours ago

                Keeping but only as i have Kelly, Tanganga, Maddison, Vardy etc to deal with

              3. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
                • 4 Years
                27 days, 15 hours ago

                Keeping until he repays me. Which means I'll be paid in the official currency of Mars in 2057 when fpl has transferred to space.

              Happy TC Day Folks!

              I have noticed a trend with my selections:

              15/16: Aguero (AVL): 11 x 3 = 33 (Inc. a missed penalty)
              16/17: Aguero (sun, STK) 7+2 x 3 = 27
              17/18: Sterling (HUD, BRI) 3+0 x 3 = 9
              18/19: Sane (ARS, eve) 0+1 x 3 = 3

              So, its been 5 matches since I felt the joy of a TC return....ouch. Good luck to fellow Salah TCers then!

                  My memory is filled with a lot of other completely useless data. Wish I would have written this down...

                  I do remember TC-ing Sanchez for his 24-something point haul a couple of years ago.

              3. King Kohli
                • 7 Years

                Had it on Salah last year for his hat trick vs Huddersfield.

                Don't really remember about seasons before that.

                Even I had it on Sterling in 17/18! Worst experience!

                So in 4 years the most the chip has gotten you was 11 points. As you would have capt them anyway. Prob the worst chip we have really.

              WC?

              Have Soyuncu, Rico, Aurier, Lund (may have lost spot), double man utd attack, & vardy

              1. Ajax Hamsterdam
                • 5 Years
                27 days, 18 hours ago

                Tempting but you'll struggle when tej dgw comes . I'd take a hit or 2 to sort team. Vardy should be ok anyway

                1. Coys96
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  27 days, 18 hours ago

                  Taken 4 hits in last last 6 GWs though in separate weeks. In those weeks I have 3/4 red arrows. But yes that's whats I'm saving it for

                  1. Ajax Hamsterdam
                    • 5 Years
                    27 days, 18 hours ago

                    I'm in a similar ish situation with a few players I want to ditch but just being patient for now..might save transfer and do a -8 following gw ( haven't taken a hit all season though )

              2. King Kohli
                • 7 Years
                27 days, 18 hours ago

                Strongly considering it myself.
                Have all except Aurier

                Is aurier not been doing well?

                  27 days, 17 hours ago

                  he's got me 20 pts in 7 games, so no.

                  plus fixtures coming up on a defensive aspect are bad

                  I've dropped from 27k to 49k in 3 weeks, but I'll probably fall to around 70k as haven't used TC this gw

              Very tempted to wildcard as last ditch attempt to stop season pettering out. In my situation would you wildcard this lot?

                Yes if you have an idea of who you want to get in.
                What does your WC team look like?

                  Not really had a fiddle.

                  But I'd have auba ings son robbo egan (instead of lunds)

                  Prob jiminez ....Also consider bellerin, Ritchie, Williams, doucoure

                  Just to shake it up and try something new til end of season

                Team doesn’t look that bad! I’d look at your transfer strategy instead and see how you can change that

                  My problem is that I have got rid of players at precisely the wrong time.

                  Taa, Pope, alli jimiez all hauled the week I have got rid.

                    Same here. Maybe a less aggressive play style is the way to go?
                    Players like Maupay and Grealish have good fixtures this week and could haul

                  Yeah will probably cling to him until he goes for free

                No way Arsenal let him leave now.

                Cant see Arteta letting him leave, unless he got another striker In.

                Fleck or Barnes for a cheap midfielder?

                  Fleck. Has better fixtures.

                  Serious question, thoughts on Sterling? Any city fans about? Has he been generally unlucky or is something a bit wrong?

                    He's completely off it this season.

                    For me, it's a choice between Salah and Aguero. Fixtures point to Salah, so A or C
