Extent of Lundstram injury revealed as Spurs display gives FPL owners concern

Sheffield United 3-1 Tottenham Hotspur

  • Goals: Sander Berge (£4.7m), Lys Mousset (£4.4m), Oliver McBurnie (£5.6m) | Harry Kane (£10.9m)
  • Assists: Berge, Chris Basham (£4.6m), Enda Stevens (£5.1m) | Son Heung-min (£9.8m)
  • Bonus: Berge x3, Mousset x2, Kane, Son x1

Sheffield United returned to winning ways in some style as Spurs’ key assets delivered mixed messages for their Fantasy owners.

The resumption of football had not been kind on the Blades, with three straight defeats in league and cup, whereas Jose Mourinho’s men had performed well enough in two outings to prompt solid investment in the likes of Harry Kane (£10.9m), Son Heung-min (£9.8m) and Serge Aurier (£5.0m).

The same could not be said of United players. Their only starter not to experience net transfers out for the Gameweek was defender Jack Robinson (£4.0m). The epitome of a budget enabler, even he seemed overpriced as both sides produced a first half an hour of almost entirely forgettable toil.

And then it all kicked off.

The Blades took the lead with a fine, incisive move finished when Chris Basham‘s (£4.6m) cut-back was drilled home on the angle by Sander Berge (£4.7m).

It was the Norwegian’s first league goal since moving to the Premier League in January. He added to his haul with an assist and the maximum bonus award to bring in 13 points for his, count them, 6,376 owners in Fantasy Premier League (FPL).

If he can build on such a fine display, more will flock to his cause and the (already sketchy) claims of the injured John Lundstram (£4.8m) to be the Supreme Fantasy Lord will finally be laid to rest should Berge keep him out of the starting line-up.

United’s lead lasted precisely two minutes when Kane rode a challenge and found the net, only for VAR to continue its bold crusade to be 2020’s second-worst thing with a decision that managed to be technically correct and completely wrong all at the same time.

Lucas Moura (£7.1m) was fouled in the build-up to the ‘goal’, referee Chris Kavanagh played an advantage and Kane did the rest. VAR then decided Moura had handled the ball on his way to the turf, thus negating the advantage and leading to the goal being chalked off.

How much Moura actually touched the ball was debatable, how ridiculous the letter-of-the-law ruling wasn’t debatable at all, and the only positive to be had from the whole debacle was that United, so many times the loser in VAR controversies, probably deserved their luck.

Mourinho refused, sort of, to blame the decision for the loss:

I think in the second half my players were not mentally strong enough to cope with that disappointment and they have to be. I am not just going to say that goal is the cause of everything. It would be very easy for me to do that, but I don’t want to go in that direction.

His team rallied after the break, in terms of dominating possession at least, only for substitute Lys Mousset (£4.4m) to double the home side’s advantage with a tap-in following excellent work by Ben Osborn (£4.7m) and assister Enda Stevens (£5.1m) down the left flank.

The goal was the match in microcosm – Spurs enjoyed 65% possession over the 90 minutes, but had only two shots on target to United’s five.

The strike also knocked what was left of the stuffing out of the visitors, and it was no surprise when the Blades scored a third, Oliver McBurnie (£5.6m) deftly flicking home an excellent Berge cross.

Despite the VAR shenanigans, a 3-0 result was about right based on the overall flow of the game, only for Kane to finally get his goal as the match was easing into wind-down mode.

The striker was picked out by Son’s fine cut-back and he made no mistake for his second goal in as many Gameweeks. It was also Son’s second assist over the same time frame – reward for the 150,000-odd FPL managers who invested in one or other of the pair this week.

The only worry for those who own the duo – and more are joining for a home match with Everton in Gameweek 33+ – is that they were living on scraps at Bramall Lane.

Kane did lead the way for attempts, but he managed a mere three penalty area touches, while Son had no shots at all. The England captain’s overall involvement was limited, to put it mildly. Thirteen players had more touches than he did in the final third, including substitute Erik Lamela (£5.7m), who managed 21 touches (to Kane’s 14) despite playing over an hour less.

However good a finisher Kane is, he can’t keep producing points without more support and involvement, while Son’s owners will probably settle for his assists, despite expecting more goals, for now at least.

Tottenham’s decent fixture schedule is clearly proving irresistible for Fantasy managers, but Everton are hardly pushovers at present and Mourinho will need to rediscover the right balance in a side that was heavy on attackers but still lacked any bite last night.

Some of that was down to the excellence of Chris Wilder’s team, and the United manager was understandably positive about the performance and result:

It had to be up there with our best in terms of the circumstances, players we’re missing and run we’ve been on. It’s been difficult for everyone to get back to playing but I saw signs on Sunday that we were getting more like ourselves, a bit freer and more positive in our play. When you’re playing teams like this, you have to bring close to your best game to the table.

He also gave an update on player injuries:

Fleck, Lundstram and Freeman will be out for a couple of weeks.

The Blades have a mixed bag of fixtures to finish the season, with Sunday’s trip to Burnley one of the better shouts for a goalless draw and a decent-enough run after visits from Wolves and Chelsea are done.

Berge caught the eye against Spurs, but it was the return to more solid ways at the back – despite the lack of a clean sheet – that might warrant interest.

Left wing-back Stevens once again underlined his attacking potential with his assist – he now has three of those and two goals this campaign – and defensive returns look possible at both at Turf Moor this weekend and over the final three Gameweeks when United will face Leicester, Everton and Southampton.


Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Henderson, Basham, Egan, Robinson; Baldock, Berge, Norwood, Osborn, Stevens; McBurnie (Freeman 90′), McGoldrick (Mousset 63′).

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-3-2-1): Lloris, Aurier (Ndombele 71′), Sanchez, Dier, Davies (Vertonghen 81′); Sissoko (Alli 71′), Lo Celso, Bergwijn (Lamela 56′); Moura, Son; Kane.

    Those with TC chip left, when are you planning to use it? And on who?

      Oops top post

      1. uhahpaulmcgrath
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        had planned on using this GW. Either Bruno or Salah, but now Ole has thrown a spanner in the works and I think the Liverpool team is hungover

    2. moz_1983
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Very tempted with a 'pool player against Villa on Sunday. They'll be pretty down about that loss to City and Klopp will be fuming. I'd expect them to make a statement in the next game (even though it is a dead rubber).

    3. Jellyfish

      Currently planning on KDB GW 36 (Bournemouth @ home)

        Ooooh interesting

    4. The Red Devil

      Using it on kdb
      Maybe 34+/36+

  2. moz_1983

    Son and Boly > Mahrez and AWB a decent move? I already own Doherty.

    1. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      yup

      Yeah

  3. Bubz

    Pretty horrible GW, fell from 451 to 1029, and my ML rival overtook me in my ML.

    Looking forward, how do you think my team is looking? I’ve made my xfer this week already:

    DDG
    TAA, Doherty, Taylor
    KDB, Salah, Bruno(vc), Pulisic
    Rashford(c), Jiminez, DCL

    Button, Kiko, Robinson, Gendouzi... 0 itb

    1. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Nice
      Haven't seen too many Rash(c)

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        it s him or salah for me but leaning toward Salah.

        1. Weasel Boy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          same

      2. Bubz
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        My captain picks have been horrible tbh but I feel like Rashford is due a haul and is better at home

        1. Weasel Boy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          yeah been thinking he's due a haul. Thats why I'm reluctant to ditch.

        2. mynameisq
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Don't want to talk you out of it but since the restart I've noticed 3 players who've markedly dropped off since Corona- Jota, DCL, and Rashford. All 3 look totally off the boil and unfit

          1. Bubz
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            True, Rash’s touch has been awful. He has managed some assists still though. I reckon Bournemouth are there for the taking. I could swap it to Bruno though...

            1. mynameisq
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Yeah I'm moving back and forward myself, a bit of sharpness and the way utd are playing he could haul. Overall though I'm leaning towards no captain, if he hauls at least I've got him and if he doesn't I won't be thinking why did I captain someone so clearly off the boil

              Oh and a lot of his earlier season hauls included penalties which is he is no longer on

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I share your pain Bubz but please stay clean 😉

      team is ace, very similar to mine but you have pulisic and I have sarr 🙁

      i m captaining Salah.

      gl

      1. Bubz
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Cheers, gl gl

    3. moz_1983
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Looks pretty solid to me, then again I'm 230k so what the hell do I know?!

      Seriously though, looks sound.

      1. Bubz
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Cheers pal

    4. tomasjj
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I would have gone for Salah, but if you need to catch up, Rash could pay off.

      1. Bubz
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        A bit worried about how bad Liverpool were last night... will Salah play 90? Villa havent looked as horrendous as usual too.

        I think Man Utd current form vs Bournemouth current form makes a Utd captain almost s no brainer

        1. mynameisq
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Don't forget it's not just about Salah starting, most likely he'll be starting (if he does) alongside a heavily rotated team full of youngsters

        2. tomasjj
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Yes, that result was poor for Liverpool, but their play was not that bad. Salah could have had a couple.

          But you make sense - Bournemouth are horrendous, and both Villa and Man U have something to play for.

    5. pingissimus
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 2 days ago

      That’s some ML

      1. Bubz
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I know, ridiculous really. Its just between me and my mates

    6. Firminoooo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Same red arrow, from 569 to 99. You are looking good, but a little template. Maybe Guendouzi to Foden, get more ManC.

      1. Firminoooo
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        to 991.

  4. Brakos2k
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Richarlison to Pulsic/ Willian for free or save ft to get in KDB and Foden next week?

    1. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I would get one of the Chelsea boys

  5. Rolls-Royce
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    I think I am bringing in Gabby Jesus. He can't be sh*te for so long and currently has no competition for the striker spot.

    1. Brakos2k
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Braver than me - he has looked pretty terrible but bound to get some tap-ins at some point.

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Chasing ML leader by 40 pts. Gotta take some risks.

    2. ManUnitedComeBack
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      The fact that he's only managed 90-odd minutes across 2 GWs where he's been the only fit striker is really putting me off. But then again, him coming off so early yesterday means he should start this weekend.

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I think he starts every game from now on until Aguero is fit.

  6. ManUnitedComeBack
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    The current template is Jimenez, but we'd all probably sell him when his baby is born since he'd miss a game or two.

    Would you bet on a differential (excluding Kane and United options) to outscore him until then and if so, who?

    Or is Jimenez to Ings whenever the baby arrives the best course of action?

    1. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      when the baby Due?

      1. ManUnitedComeBack
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I believe she's 36 weeks now. It was 31 weeks on the 25th of May

    KDB -> Mahrez?

    whos feeling it?

    1. Brakos2k
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I shipped KDB a few weeks ago to be 'punty' and regret it.

        Same, biggest mistake of the season

      Keep KDB.

  8. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • 5 Years

    A) Perez to Foden
    B) Auba to Jesus

    1. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      A though he may not start this weekend

  9. ChickenTikkaMoSalah

    Anyone concerned about Ole’s rotation comments?

    1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      What did he say?

      1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Of course there are a couple of knocks. You do start feeling things now after a little bit, so there might be a couple of changes but let’s see today. The boys who didn’t play on Tuesday want to play and are ready to step in if they have to."

        1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          oh god

          1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Not good for my triple United

        2. Original Pirate Material
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          I worry for Greenwood then.

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      It's put me off punting on Greenwood. I won't captain Martial, so doesn't affect that. Feel like Bruno is likely to play still - so also wouldn't bench. Salah most likely (C) - so doesn't change much else.

  10. Jellyfish
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Those with FH still active - when you planning on playing it?

  11. Miguel Sanchez
    • 4 Years

    Madness to captain Pulisic (WAT) over Salah (AVL), Martial and Bruno (BOU)?

    1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I think that Pulisic could be rested tomorrow night

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        this

      2. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Why? Surely Frank has to go for it now after the hammers defeat. CL places still up for grabs

        1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          He has tougher games on the horizon, and tomorrow would be the perfect game to bring back CHO. I reckon Pulisic will be benched, then come on at around 60 mins

          1. Jellyfish
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            oh golly...I was looking at transferring him i this gw

            1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Obviously I could be entirely wrong, but as a Chelsea fan I just feel like this is what will happen

              1. Jellyfish
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                Maybe Willian a better pick?

                1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 2 days ago

                  I’d still prefer Pulisic, personally I’m getting him in after this GW, kind of predicting his benching. If you get pulisic this week, just make sure you have a decent first sub

          2. Original Pirate Material
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Willian more nailed you reckon?

            1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              I’d say if Pulisic is rested tomorrow, he’ll be nailed on for the rest of the season. He just needs a bit of a break, like most players

      3. tomasjj
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Agree

    2. Ranger3

      yes

      1. Miguel Sanchez

          We all get it someday 😀

    @ Diesel

    Why does Martial have a higher ceiling than Fernandes? 4 double digit hauls all season, Fernandes has 3 in 8games.

    Think he is a great choice don’t get me wrong. I think Fernandes has shown he could quite easily score 1-2 goals and more likely to get assists.

  13. Who are all Lukakus
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    I give you 2 FTs:

    1. Son to Mahrez
    2. DCL to Greenwood
    3. Saka to Foden

    Which transfer would you do this week, and why?

    1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      2 because Bournemouth

      1. Who are all Lukakus
        • 3 Years

        Surely Greenwood is going to start tomorrow?
        He is much better than James but he is a teenager after all... worry that Ole may bench him

      Salah | Son | Bruno | Foden | Sarr
      Rashford | Greenwood | Jiminez

      Anything worth changing for a hit? Will return comments

      Pope 3.9

      TAA Doherty Aurier Lascelles 3.9

      Mane KDB Martial Fernandes Son

      Jimenez DCL Nketieh

      2FTs 0itb

      Not sure where to go from here. Feel like Son has to go.
      1. Son + Jimmy to Salah + Greenwood
      2. Son + Nketieh to Mahrez + Greenwood, leaves 1.2m itb
      3. Son + Nketiah to Pulisic + Greenwood, leaves 2.6m ITB

      Have 2 free transfers

      Who should I prioritise getting out of my team and who should I look at getting in?

      DDG Button
      TAA Doherty Aurier Ritchie Bolly
      Salah Fernandes Son Foden Saka
      Rashford Jimi DCL

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 month, 2 days ago

        I have a similar team and ended up shifting DDG and DCL to Pope and Greenwood.

        1. corderz
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Trying to decide on either getting greenwood or martial in

      Is there a DGW upcoming due to the FA-cup?

      Hi guys,

      Martial to Salah
      Dcl to Greenwood?

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        No

    8. McSlu

      WC team. Any suggestions very welcome! BB next week

      Pope/martinez

      TAA, Aurier, Saiss, Fernandez, AWB

      Salah, KDB, Mahrez, Bruno, Martial

      DLC, Jimi, nketiah

      Missing Chelsea, otherwice the team is buld around Wolves, City, United and Pool as I think they will continue to step on the pedal for the rest of the season. Also this enables me to easy shift both in defence and midfield if required.

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        DCL on a wildcard...interesting. Also ditch Aurier, awful defense.

      2. Geordienufc1
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Well balanced, I like it! Could try to squeeze a second wolves defender like Boly in there over Fernandez, given their form and fixtures. But no real areas of weakness here.

    9. screamer73
      • 4 Years

      Son to:
      A Mahrez
      B Pulisic

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        A

      2. Geordienufc1
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Money no object, Mahrez.

    10. cigan
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Play Greenwood or Saka?
      Greenwood the obvious choice but a bit worried he may not start - Saka surely will after finally signing that contract and sitting out the last game. Wolves aren't Bournemouth tho

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Green

    11. tomasjj

      Will there be a double gameweek to make up for FA cup games?

      1. Zilla
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Probably no

      2. uhahpaulmcgrath
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        no, factored in

      3. tomasjj

        Thanks!

      Evening lads, hope all are well. Advice appreciated, will try to reciprocate.

      Pope
      TAA | Doherty | Lascelles
      Salah | KDB | Bruno | Son | Martial
      Jiménez | DCL

      3.9 | Kiko | Connolly | Holgate —————— 2 FT, 0.1 itb

      A) Son + DCL -> Pulisic + Rashford
      B) Son + Kiko -> Mahrez + AWB
      C) Son + DCL + Doherty -> Mahrez + Rashford + Boly (-4)

      1. Pegboy

        Very similar to my team and I've got similar dilemmas.

        I'm leaning A

        1. Geordienufc1
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Cheers, yeah it’s tricky! Option A was my first instinct, so I’m probably leaning that way as well. Just wary of foregoing City assets!

    13. Crooky
      • 1 Year

      Quick one to make my WC work...

      A)
      TAA > Gomez
      Mahrez > Foden

      Martinez (Pope)
      Taylor, AWB, TAA, (J Robinson, Lamptey)
      Mahrez Salah KDB Pulisic Bruno
      Rashford Jimi (Nkeitiah)

      Not much money to play with...

      1. aapoman
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Nope

      2. John Nerdelbaum
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I'd go triple City on WC

    14. aapoman
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      WC team good to go? 0.0itb

      Pope
      TAA AWB Lascelles
      Salah KDB Fernandes Foden
      Jesus Rashord Jimenez

      3.9; C. Taylor, Boly, K. Davis

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        You sure about th Jesus pick?

        1. Rolls-Royce
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Looks really good tho,

          1. aapoman
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Could be good in my opinion. Of course it's Pep roulette though...

      2. aapoman
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Could also go Jesus to cheaper striker and K. Davis to Mahrez but triple city mid might be too much

    15. Seamy

      Currently at 8k rank looking to push up to 5k (all my mini leagues are tied up)
      But I have no Man City assets...

      Thinking of going Son -> Mahrez this week and Doherty & Nketiah -> Saiss & Jesus (-4) next week

      Am I insane going without KdB for the rest of the season?
      Silly or worth rolling the dice for this?

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Insane, I sold KDB weeks ago and he's punished me. Amazing player due a rest but will get him back after Southampton.

      what is the likelihood of a Salah benching this weekend? he did play 90 mins and Mane 84

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        klopp seemed angry afterwards
        he'll want to bounce back - not that he needs salah to beat villa but I say he starts as usual

    19. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years

      Southampton have lost 4 of there last 5 home games. Seriously tempted to captain a City player, Mahrez(c), anyone?

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Not for me.

        Still not as bad as Bournemouth
