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.

  10. JayLegend

    Awful cross

    1. Alton E.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Really?

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah. Trent would have paced that right onto Harry’s foot

        1. Alton E.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          You thought about Aurier didn't you?

          But you're right, Trent is capable of pulling that off

          1. Bubz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            Yeah, Aurier is a good option but he is no Trent when it comes to assisting

  12. Ógie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 4 days ago

    Ffs Harry that would have been a dream combo with Aurier.

  13. FPL_DON

    Aurier, so close!

    Drinks breaks and too many subs spoiling these games. God football needs the fans

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

      Clearly the players need breaks...their fitness is lacking all around the league. Would you rather them start playing like the last 10 mins of that game at 70mins? Give them some time and be happy football is back

    Looks like Son might get robbed off BPS as well

    1. KGFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      He didn't even look like getting anything... If he gets bonus.. I'm happy .. if not then I'll take the assist.. btw son capper here so not at all happy either way

      1. BUZZBOMB
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        If he gets 2 (4) I'll take that. Wont ever do that again. I know Im looking for differentials but wont go on an early GW captain against the popular choices next time.

    2. BUZZBOMB
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Why? What happened in last few mins to result in 2 to zero?

        People just trolling mate

  24. KGFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 4 days ago

    West Ham deserve to go down... Literally no try in last 10-12 minutes .. pathetic when you are so close to the drop zome

  25. Magic Hamster
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    How does this look for a wc?

    De Gea Krul
    Dip TAA Taylor Holgate Doherty
    RIcharlison Son Willian Sarr Fernandes
    Rashford DCL Jimenez

    Leaves me with 3.0 ITB - the plan would be in the gameweeks after Man City have played Liverpool to transfer out either Son or Willian and bring in a city of liverpool player based on fixtures and who has played the previous GW. Involves some micro management, but think it might work...maybe. Should provide decent captain options...hopefully.
