Alli returns for Spurs as Bergwin drops to the bench

Dele Alli (£8.3m) is straight back in the Spurs line-up for Gameweek 31+ as Spurs host West Ham in a London derby.

The mid-priced midfielder missed Double Gameweek 30+ due to a social-media-related suspension but has no issues breaking back into Jose Mourinho’s team at the first time of asking.

Alli takes up the number 10 role, fulfilled by Erik Lamela (£5.7m) against Manchester United, hoping to get back to his pre-lockdown form, which yielded five attacking returns between Gameweeks 24 and 29.

The return of the England international sees Lamela drop to the bench, but Double Gameweek 30+ goalscorer Steven Bergwijn (£7.4m) suffers the same fate.

His wide-attacking midfield berth has been handed to the returning Lucas Moura (£7.1m), who missed the Manchester United game through injury.

While Alli poses some potential as a differential, the main Fantasy focus from this London derby will, of course, be on Son Heung-min (£9.7m).

The South Korean is owned by just 7.9% worldwide, but he still sits in 40% of squads inside the top 10,000 managers.

Furthermore, 6.7% of those at that level have handed him the armband for Gameweek 31+.

As ever, there is little interest in the West Ham assets, their 4-3-3 line-up probably more encouraging for the 6% invested in Serge Aurier (£4.9m) more than anything else.

Still without a recognised striker in the starting XI due to Sébastien Haller‘s (£6.8m) injury, David Moyes has named a front-three consisting of midfielders.

Pablo Fornals (£6.0m), typically deployed in the middle, sits on one side of Michail Antonio (£6.9m) with Jarrod Bowen (£6.4m) on the other.

West Ham United XI: Fabianski; Cresswell, Balbuena, Diop, Fredericks; Rice, Soucek, Noble; Fornals, Antonio, Bowen.

Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris; B Davies, D Sánchez, Dier, Aurier; Sissoko, Lo Celso; Son, Alli, Moura; Kane.

  16. aborg
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 4 days ago

    Thinking that if West Ham score, Son could be on 3 bonus points ?

    1. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Aurier yellow would secure Son 2 bonus...

  17. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 4 days ago

    8 and 7 for Son and Aurier owners is still a decent result here!

    Why didn’t Felipe Anderson and Yarmolenko start? Can’t be worse surely?

    1. Tony Martial
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Anderson is terrible

      Like seriously bad

    2. Royal5
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      You have not watched Anderson for a while I understand.

  24. Vazza

      Maguire or Aurier for the rest of the season?

      1. Keep Calm and Play On
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Aurier has looked really good in both games for spurs and both have good fixtures. I’d say Aurier has a higher ceiling

        1. Legendary!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          Until Maguire heads in 2 corners

    • Babelcopter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Moyesy in trouble again. Such a terrible manager.

    • Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      An assist to beat then.

      DCL(C) can do that against Norwich!

      1. Tony Martial
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Hope so even tho he ain’t my captain

    • KGFC

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        This West Ham performs badly no matter the manager.
