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.

                they explain the situation on there as well

                  1 month, 8 days ago

                  I will have a read, YNWA

    2. Athletic Nasherbo
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Connolly I don’t think starts

      Egan good fixture. Form is all over the place right now and Burnley are performing well.

      Lascelles decent but imagine West Ham scoring

      Lean towards Egan

      1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Thanks for the feedback. Fingers crossed we get early team news for brighton regarding connolly then if he is benched I can obviously play one of the others instead.

        1. Athletic Nasherbo
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Forgot Brighton is early kick off! Yeah should be fine then play if starts

          1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Thanks mates good luck!

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

        It does look like Connolly starts against the stronger teams and Troasard against the weaker ones. But I might have totally misinterpreted the situation.

        1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Ah that's an interesting one, I though connolly came off bench v arsenal though. Hopefully we get early line up news which should clear it up. 🙂

          1. ManUnitedComeBack
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            But that would only support what I said 😉

            Yeah there should be a team leak with this being the early fixture.

            Who’d have thought, FPL managers waiting on team leaks regarding the cheapest attacking player in the game.

            1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Lol I see what you did there. Any excuse to bash the gooners and I'm on board.

              Yeah against norwich is just an incredible fixture for any striker though, they seem to like setting up the opposition strikers!

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

      Play Egan for sure

      1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Cheers for the feedback 🙂

    4. The Sociologist
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Egan for sure

      1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Thanks mate. 🙂

  2. Salarrivederci
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Armband to Rash this GW?

    1. KDF
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Not got Bruno/Martial?

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Got all 3

        1. KDF
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          If you fancy Rashford, go for it. It could be his turn, my pick would be Tony although I'm currently on Salah

    2. jamiejoe
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I think so too.

    3. Kung Fu Football
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Bruno 4 me Rash VC but who knows?!!

  3. Nice n Sleazy
      1 month, 8 days ago

      The DEADLIEST midfield for GW 33
      Salah + KDB + Bruno + Son + Pulisic
      End of.

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

        Martial over Son in current form for sure

      2. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Martial or mahrez better than son

      3. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        And by coincidence you have the same 5 players?

      4. ManUnitedComeBack
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        No. KdB likely to be rested after playing 90 yesterday (Pep did have an unused sub, could easily have taken him off with the game wrapped up), Salah may not start, Son off form but enough gap between games to start again. Pulisic will get a rest in one of the next two games but probably the latter one.

      5. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I think Salah + Mane would be best. Klopp was mad. I can see him fielding both and absolutely butchering Villa.

        1. internal error
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I can see this. Salah, Mane, Mahrez, Bruno, KDB is probably the ideal mid line up this week

      6. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
          1 month, 8 days ago

          4 attacking players and one wide left back

        • COK3Y5MURF
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Lol no.

      7. Athletic Nasherbo
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        G2g? Took a -4.

        Henderson
        TAA Doherty Egan
        KdB Fernandes Pulisic Willian Cantwell
        Aubameyang Rashford(C)

        Nyland DCL Aarons Lundstram

        1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I'd probably play DCL over Cantwell

      8. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Douglas Luiz and DCL to Mahrez and Nketiah for a hit and switch to 3-5-2?

        • El Muñeco
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Which option is the better downgrade to afford Adama to Pulisic:

          A) DCL, DDG ---> Greenwood, Pope (-4) (leaves money ITB for Saka to Foden next GW)

          B) Doherty ----> Saiss.

          Have to sell DDG as have Rashford and Fernandes

          Cheers

        • grennans2
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Any of the below worth a -4 this week or am I better off waiting?

            A) Martinez > De Gea
            B) Lascelles > AWB
            C) Guendouzi to Pulisic (and bench Saiss)
            D) Guendouzi > Foden (and bench Saiss)
            E) Nkietah > Greenwood (and bench Saiss)

            1. El Muñeco
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              I'd consider C

          • TaiwanHC
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Pick one:

            A. AWB + Saiss + Taylor (already have Doherty)
            B. Maguire + Chilwell + 3.9

            Thanks guys!

            TC kdb, but not sure about when? GW 34+ home to Newcastle or GW38+ home to Norwich
            Also have FH left

            1. internal error
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              You should know if he starts in 38 so that would be safer

              1. KDF
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 8 days ago

                Probably FH in 38+

                1. internal error
                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 8 days ago

                  Yeah. Didnt see the FH bit

            2. Athletic Nasherbo
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Hold for 38 unless you plan to FH

              Foden will probably be rested.

              • 4 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

            0.0 ITB - 2 FT .

            Actually lacking any ideas. Might want to get rid of Mount/DCL and are eyeing Mahrez..

            If Jack O'Connell returns for any of the remaining games what chance of Robinson keeping his place if not position? Can play left back with Stevens dropped.

              • 4 Years

              O'Connell would be straight back in. Steven's would not be dropped.

            2. Would Ed Woodward

                  Stevens was very good last night, I can't see it, Wilder has always talked about consistency with his selection too apart from forwards who he likes to rotate.

            3. Fit_to_drop
                1 month, 8 days ago

                I think a good chance. His long throws are something I wasnt aware of. Who was the Stoke chap that kept his place for 3-4 seasons based on the long throw? Name evades me. I have him and am even thinking of playing him this weekend.

                    Ings is 3 weeks too early.

                    Exact money, Martial to Mahrez for free this week to retain till season end. Have 2 UTD after that.

                    Sideways?

                      Certainly not a wee to drop any United players. Considering Bournemouth are currently conceding goals for fun whilst Southampton have tendencies to be a little stubborn on occasions.

                    TAA Doherty CTaylor (Saiss Lascelles)

                    DCL Jimi Rash

                    2 FT and 0m in bank. Which option:

                    A. Son to Martial (triple up on United)
                    B. Rash and Guen to Marital and Nketiah/Greenwood

                      I was the same and did dcl and hayden to foden and nketiah

                      Wouldn’t put Rashford and Jesus in the same category...

                      Keep for one more week each. Good fixture and will start

                      Is DCL, Son and Guendouzi to Nketiah (bencing) Mahrez and Pulisic/Willian stupid move for -4?

                      Which option?

                      A) DDG + Son --> Pope + Martial (Got rash + bruno)
                      B) Son + Guendouzi (5th mid) --> Mahrez + Foden

                      Finally made some headway with the FH team. 94 points behind so have to take some risks:

                      please help in deciding from these two options:

                      a) Ederson - Wan Bissaka - Saint Maxmin
                      b) Martinez - Taylor - Bruno fern

                      rest of first 11 is:

                      ---
                      TAA Alonso ---
                      Salah Martial Mahrez ---
                      Rashford Giroud Vardy

                        • 3 Years
                        1 month, 8 days ago

                        are you sure about Vardy and Giroud?

                        1. Harvey Spector
                          • 4 Years
                          1 month, 8 days ago

                          Ya, Vardy looking for the golden boot and I am hoping Giroud will start after the horror show of Tammy in the last game. I think lateriser also rose up in the ranks with Giroud once upon a time. haha

                        • 5 Years

                        A is more complete, but B has Bruno

                          any alternatives that you can suggest?

                      Hmmmm

                      Bitten the bullet and gone for a minus 8. Green arrows but wretched squad from 30. TC Mo or no?

                      Captain decisions have been my only salvation since the restart

                      Ederson
                      Maguire Boly Lascelles
                      Mo (TC?)KdB Bruno Mahrez Son
                      Jim Greenwood

                      Hendo Tammy Egan Lund

                          That team looks fine. Should do I suppose.

                          1 month, 8 days ago

                          I would save for the KdB vs Bournemouth.

                            1 month, 8 days ago

                            That’s the option unless I attack Brighton - who look gash in defence conceding loads of chances - in 34.

                            Have captained KdB consistently but anxious about a TC call on him - wrong think I guess

                          1 month, 8 days ago

                          Incredible amount of risk TCing Salah this week imo. He'll def play of course but will he be hungry enough in a for-nothing AVL match to make a TC worthwhile.... not sure.

                          Wouldn't you be better to punt on Bruno or Mahrez for TC if you want to use the chip to try and offset the -8?

                          1. KDF

                            1 month, 8 days ago

                            Salah will want golden boot so should motivate him

                            1 month, 8 days ago

                            Bruno doesn’t grab me as a captain still less TC. Reminds me of Pog last season. Quality of course but outperforming in FPL.

                            Quite fancy Mo this week partly because so many seem to be looking elsewhere. Could easily have had 2 last night if you factor in post and near thing with pen.

                              I should prob reveal I have armband on Salah atm with Bruno VC 😆

                        It s a bit crazy but im going to C Rashford ahead of Salah. Have good feeling

                        A) Auba and ASM
                        B) Jiminez and Pulisic (-4)

                        If you HAD to bench one of these, which would you pick?

                        A) Salah (AVL)
                        B) Mahrez (sou)
                        C) KDB (sou)
                        D) Bruno (BOU)
                        E) Pulisic (WAT)
                        F) Rash (BOU)
                        G) Jimi (ARS)
                        H) Greenwood (BOU)

                        And the underlying question ... would you do Guendo > Pulisic this week for -4 if it meant having to bench one of the above?

                        Cheers and GL all

                            Not sure I would have the cahones to do it but C might be the most likely bench. If it comes off, boom...

                            1. Don Kloppeone

                              1 month, 8 days ago

                              That's some big cojones benching KDB.... I think if I had to I'd be leaning towards Greenwood or maybe even Jimi for the lower ceiling and hope they'd have to come on anyway!

                              He's definitely the most logical but I'd be worried he maintains his form even in reduced mins and isn't needed from my bench....

                              The question is whether Pulisic is worth getting for a -4 if it means this headache!

                            Greenwood

                            Don’t think he starts and he’s value but that’s all really compared to the rest.

                            Might go for the minus 4.

                            1. Don Kloppeone

                              It’s def more exciting taking the hit!

                              Obv can see an outcome being Greenwood hauling from the bench, Puli blanking and all my starting 11 playing!

                          Start Lascelles or Saiss?

                                Nice team ... not a fan of the Jesus pick but assume you got him in before this week!

                                  Nope, I actually got him last night for Jota after watching his dire performance in the game, it's not like he's never gonna score again though and will get chances, Pep needs him confident and scoring if Kun doesn't make it for the CL.

                                    Fair enough then. Hope it works out!

                              Do you think Garcia is worth getting if you can only fit in two city attackers?

                                Hmmm i'm debating this as well. Honestly think it might block me doing Salah > Sterling in a few gws so might avoid idk
