Scout Notes

Should FPL managers sign Kane or Son for upcoming Bournemouth match?

Spurs 1-0 Everton

  • Goals: None
  • Own Goals: Michael Keane (£5.2m)
  • Assists: Giovani Lo Celso (£7.3m)
  • Bonus Points: Hugo Lloris x3 (£5.3m), Toby Alderweireld x2 (£5.3m), Serge Aurier x2 (£5.0m)

Harry Kane (£10.9m) and his Spurs colleagues put in an underwhelming audition for inclusion in Gameweek 34+ Fantasy squads on Monday night. 

Ahead of an appealing trip to Bournemouth, the side that has conceded more goals than any other since the Premier League restart, Jose Mourinho’s men were flat and laboured as they limped to a 1-0 win over Everton.

Kane especially had been the focus of the night, prospective owners hoping for an encouraging display of penalty box activity and rafts of shots on goal. They got neither.

In a rather uneventful game, the centre-forward spent much of his time loitering outside the area or drifting out-wide, somewhat isolated by the attacking midfielders around him.

The closest Kane got to an attacking return was in the first half when his solitary penalty box shot was blocked at close range. The resulting rebound fell to Giovani Lo Celso (£7.3m), whose own effort was deflected into the net by Michael Keane (£5.2m). Had the Argentinian managed to get his shot on target before it went into the net, Kane would have, of course, notched an assist. 

In the 35th minute, Kane clipped the top of the wall from a direct free-kick and in the 42nd, he found himself in a central position during a counter-attack, fed Lucas Moura (£7.1m) wide on the right, who saw his shot well blocked by Lucas Digne (£5.7m).

But if that’s not clutching at straws, I’m not sure what is.

Such an uninspiring performance places a big question over Kane’s head in terms of whether or not he can be trusted against Bournemouth. The Cherries have been woeful recently, but they could see any number of the centre-backs who missed the Manchester United defeat, namely Steve Cook (£5.0m), Simon Francis (£4.4m), Chris Mepham (£4.3m) or Jack Simpson (£3.9m), return from injury in time to bolster their ranks. Therefore, for Fantasy managers to still get rewards from Spurs assets, they will have to go into Gameweek 34+ equipped with some form.

Since the return of the Premier League, Kane has scored twice in four matches, but 39 players across the division have touched the ball in the box more often than him. At the very least, the England international is still not back to the Fantasy hero we used to know, which hardly begs investment for the Bournemouth game, although a north London derby the following week could provide its usual reinvigoration.

Despite playing in a wider position since Kane’s return to the team, Son Heung-min (£9.8m) looked the livelier of Spurs’ two Fantasy favourites on Monday night. While Kane was largely anonymous, the South Korean did have some decent opportunities to grab an attacking return, perhaps showing enough initiative to convince managers of his credentials for Gameweek 34+.

Most of those chances came in the second half as Son was able to tuck inside from his wide station a little more.

In the 53rd minute, Yerry Mina (£5.3m) deliberated over a hopeful long ball from the Spurs defence, allowing it to bounce, which let Son onto the ball. From a slightly tight angle, the Spurs midfielder was able to sneak in a shot, low and spinning, forcing Jordan Pickford (£5.2m) into a sprawling parry away.

Shortly afterwards, Son found some space in his left-hand furrow, executing a trademark cut inside onto his right foot. At that point, defensive pressure meant he was unable to shoot himself, so the South Korean rolled the ball square to Harry Winks (£5.2m) who screwed it wide from the edge of the box.

Just after the hour-mark, Son had two more chances, each one possessing one thing in common: Kane was far away from the action.

In the 63rd minute, Spurs burst forward on the counter-attack, Lo Celso threading Son through. Once again, he cut inside onto his right foot, curling an effort beyond the post while Kane was catching up with play.

A minute later, Son pressed into the same channel up against right-back Seamus Coleman (£5.3m), this time going around the outside and shooting on his left-foot. As Pickford was producing the stop, Kane was watching on from a standing position way out on the right-wing. Not a pretty sight for his 12.5% ownership.

Given most of his hard work came in the second period, Son was perhaps inspired by a surprising incident on the stroke of half-time. After Richarlison (£8.2m) had been allowed to cut through the Spurs midfield unopposed just short of half-time, unleashing a shot just past the post, Son was pinpointed as the culprit by goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris (£5.3m). That led to a fierce war of words and gesticulations between the two players, Lo Celso having to separate them for fear of escalation.

Spurs were still far from an exciting exhilarating side on Monday night, even after that half-time coming together, but Lloris and Mourinho were, at least, happy to see some passion, something that has been lacking in recent displays.

“It just belongs to the training room. There is a lot of respect What happened between me and Son is something that happens in football sometimes. You can see at the end of the game more than happy to be part of this team together. Yeah (it was the Richarlison chance), I think to concede the chance a few seconds before half-time because we don’t make the pressing properly, that annoyed me. But that’s football.” – Hugo Lloris

“That’s beautiful. Probably it’s a consequence of our meetings. Probably if you want to blame somebody for that it’s me because I was critical of my boys they were not enough critical of themselves and with each other. I asked them to be more demanding. I asked them to be more demanding of their colleagues.” – Jose Mourinho

While Fantasy managers may toil over whether or not to trust Spurs’ attackers between now and the Gameweek 34+ deadline, there was, at least, something to cheer on Monday night: a clean sheet and bonus for Serge Aurier (£5.0m).

The right-back has now returned either an assist or clean sheet in three of the four matches post-restart, averaging five points per game in that period.

With Bournemouth and Newcastle two of Spurs’ next three opponents, there will be more than enough reason to keep making use of Aurier. There have been some question marks over Mourinho’s defence before and after lockdown, but the return of Toby Alderweireld (£5.3m), whose exploits also earned him bonus points on Monday night, could be some cause for encouragement moving forward.

However, it must be said that this latest clean sheet was more than helped by a sub-par Everton performance, who have now blanked in two of their four post-restart matches.

Richarlison’s aforementioned chance was the only time the Toffees looked like scoring during the first half. Anthony Gordon (£4.5m) added some zip when he came on for the injury Alex Iwobi (£5.6m) at the break, his first action to push through the middle and direct a powerful shot straight at Lloris.

“Iwobi had a problem on his hamstring so I took him out.” – Carlo Ancelotti

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.4m) huffed and puffed but without quality service from midfield fed on scraps and saw most of his half-efforts blocked easily.

Perhaps it should be no surprise that Everton faltered in this one. They have been typically poor away from home this season, especially against the better sides. In fact, they have now claimed just one point from a possible 24 on the road against clubs in the top half of the Premier League table in 2019/20. With Wolves and Sheffield United the Toffees’ remaining away matches of the season, it does seem as if the time has come to switch out the likes of Calvert-Lewin for more in-form options.

There was also not much to enjoy about Everton’s defensive showing either, even though Spurs did not test them as much as they should have done.

Either way, shortcomings in this area were most keenly felt by those invested in budget option Mason Holgate (£4.4m). He was booked during the early exchanges for a tackle on Ben Davies (£5.3m), injuring himself in the process and forced off in the 35th minute.

Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris; B Davies, Dier, Alderweireld, Aurier; Winks, Lo Celso (Vertonghen 90+2′), Sissoko; Son (Bergwijn 78′), Kane, Moura (Lamela 82′).

Everton XI: Pickford; Digne, Keane, Holgate (Mina 35′), Coleman (Sidibé 77′); Sigurdsson (Bernard 67′), Gomes, T Davies (Kean 77′), Iwobi (Gordon 46′); Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.

    How has Sterling performed in the past when he’s been played up top? I think Jesus will be dropped and Sterling leading the line vs Newcastle

    1. DannyDrinkVodka
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Agreed, I think Sterling will take the Jesus role

        1. Nightcrawler

          Good thing that role invovles ruining every attack

      • Karan14

        I think he'll struggle as a striker.

        I only remember at the start of the season (gw1 vs WH) he got hattrick as striker

      • Hairy Potter
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Depends if Man City remember that their strength against teams who sit back is using width. Get the ball to Mendy and Walker/Mahrez and ping in low crosses and Sterling could definitely profit. Jesus doesn't seem to commit to the same runs.

      • THFC4LIFE
        • 3 Years

        Agree, something like this

        KDB Rodri Gundogan
        Mahrez Sterling Foden

        With Foden and Greenwood available team value is a non-issue for the remainder of the season. Get them both and you can just buy who you want. Looks like you coul invest a bit more in your front line with the cash you'd save.

    4. Collie01

      Ask me any FPL questions here and I'll try to answer them. I have a bit of free time and looking to help out.

        1. Collie01
          • 3 Years

          Save FT. Salah to Sterling is possibly tempting but could backfire just as quickly.

        Who's statistically the best captaincy option this gameweek?

        1. poulteren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          by stats...kdb

        2. Collie01
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          I think KdB

        3. Collie01
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          KdB on pens, highest scoring player in the game, primed for a start after a rest last game, at home vs relatively easy opposition who may be on the beach. City looking to bounce back after a loss. All hints to KdB points I reckon.

      3. Bubz
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Salah to Sterling, yay or nay?

        1. Rinseboy
          • 8 Years

          would like to know this too but have KDB and Mahrez already

              Im strongly contemplating doing it this morning as part of a 2 person Free Transfer

          4. RECKLESS
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            Which of these to do to bring KDB back
            1) Son to Kdb (But Son has bou!)
            2) -4 with Mahrez + Maguire to KDB + Saiss (allows next week to bring Greenwood for 3rd slot)
            3) -4 with Mahrez/Pulisic +Son to KDB + Foden
            Currently on 1 as looks like Spurs not going to score heavy in any match this season so damage will be less

            1. Collie01
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 1 day ago

              Probably 1. Seems like madness to sell Son before Bou but KdB vs Newcastle seems likely a higher scorer anyway and no easy way to get him in. No guarantee that Bou are going to be pushovers.

              1 month, 1 day ago

              I think that looks a nice team for this week. Don't think I'd be uprooting my team to get Kane in. Maybe plan to get Ings in for DCL soon.

            Jimenez to Kane (-4)?

            1. Collie01
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 1 day ago

              Ordinarily I would say no not for a hit, but if chasing it could have high reward as Kane is relatively lowly owned and Jimi is owned by most.

              1. Tonyawesome69

                1 month, 1 day ago

                thanks, I'm chasing and probably will take the risk

                  Best of luck! I have both Jimi and Kane but benching Jimi this week for Greenwood.Also chasing

                    What's your thoughts on Foden vs Sterling?

                    1. Collie01
                      • 3 Years
                      1 month, 1 day ago

                      Sterling will probably score more points but is over twice the price so Foden is a better option imo, and certainly better value. I have Foden and happy to stick with him. Sterling can be hot and cold as we know so he can be frustrating to own, and not immune to rotation or rests. I feel like this is the ideal time for Foden to prove himself - Sane gone, Dilva leaving, 2nd place in league secure, easy fixtures.

                  I got him on WC a few weeks ago. Think he could do well vs Bournemouth although Spurs look poor, so it's definitely a risk. Jimmy has 80EO in top 10k so if Kane outscores Jimmy, then could be in for a decent rank jump.

            How does this look?

            Pope
            Doherty Baldock Kiko
            Mane KDB(c) Son Bruno
            Jimenez Rashford Giroud

            1FT, plan is Giroud to Greenwood.
            Would have moved Baldock if I had another.

            Is that an ok plan?

            Cheers!

              I think that sounds good. Greenwood potentially a better option than Giroud even without the price difference factored in.

                  KdB, Salah, Foden, Pulisic, Martial
                  Kane, Greenwood

                  (Jimi, Justin, Lascelles)

                  Lack of Bruno has been a bit of a disaster! But committing to it now for better or worse.

                    Nicely balanced that.
                    Apart from Bruno ofc, but I guess Martial would be the fall guy then.

            i would sell button and get in a decent keeper...arsenal are still awful at back and vardy WILL score against them.

          Auba to Greenwood -> Done
          Norwood to Antonio -> will be done

          Question is, is Targett to Digne worth a -4? Currently playing Egan but he'll then be benched to play Digne

              Lads, talk to me....

              Need one of the following, big decision:

              A - Soyuncu (Ars)
              B - Stevens (WOL)
              C - Taylor (West Ham)

              (Pope in goal if that matters)

              Godspeed.

                B. For me. West Ham seem a bit better in attack.

              1 month, 1 day ago

              Bit of advice appreciated I've been doing well since the return of football and managed to climb up to 3.2k but after a bit of a bad week last week dropped to 6.1k

              Pope
              Doherty AWB TAA
              Bruno KDB Foden Pulisic
              Jimenez Rashford Auba

              McCarthy Egan Basham Guendouzi

              Initial thought is to roll the transfer and use 2 ft to get rid of AWB so I can get in another United attacker but now I'm really thinking of doing Jimenez to Vardy. I wouldn't be surprised if he manages to score vs Arsenal and then has Bournemouth the following week. Am I just overthinking or missing anything ?

              1. Zlatanzo
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 1 day ago

                I’d rather awb to a united attacker, going to plenty of goals going around given uniteds fixtures

                1. ZACTAY
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 1 day ago

                  Think you could be right... I'm just jealous seeing everyones teams with Martial and Greenwood doing so well but I cant really bring myself to do a sideways transfer of Rashford to Greenwood

                  1. Zlatanzo
                    • 1 Year
                    1 month, 1 day ago

                    It’s not really sideways in a way, there’s over 4.5m in value saved that u can distribute elsewhere and I don’t see greenwood losing his place as he’s playing incredibly

              2. tucaoneo

                1 month, 1 day ago

                I feel the same. MU won't score five every game but the CS potential is very real. Also interested in Vardy.

                Nice team.

                Only thing is three Man C midfielders.

                Perhaps Mahrez for Willian/Pulisic or even an outside bet like Antonio if you need money elsewhere?

            7. Zlatanzo

              Best option? 2FTs and not much to do...
              A. Holgate > Taylor
              B. De Gea + Nketiah > Pickford + Greenwood

              1. Bucket Man

              Expect to roll ft then maybe 2ft on bringing in Antonio and a better striker?

              Top of my leagues so want to consolidate.

              Seem logical? Any risks? DCL benched?

              Pope
              Aurier, TAA, Saiss
              Bruno, Salah, KDB (c), Son, Martial

              Looking at defensive fixtures to fill gk spot for next 3 weeks. Sounds bad but I am leaning to

              1) Fabianski, WHU (BUR, nor, WAT) or
              2) Foster, WAT (NOR, NEW, whu).

              For two last fixtures I have Martinez, ARS (avl, WAT). Also FH left which I am probably using last gw.

                • 6 Years
                1 month, 1 day ago

                I was wondering why on earth I chose Foster over Pope, now I remember why

                  Haha this.

                  I got Pope only for the bad times around November and missed all the hauls in 2020. Now the fixtures are turning for Burnley so I rather watch Pope gain again 10-pointers against tough opponents while having Foster in the goal.

                It's close but for me, Foster just edges it.

              No idea what to do. Had planned Pulisic in for Luiz but then have benching dillema. 1FT 4.4 ITB

              Pope
              TAA, Aurier, Boly
              Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Mahrez
              Jiminez, Ings, Greenwood
              Stevens, Luiz, Lascelles

              A) Luiz to Pulisic/Martial/Foden
              B) Jiminez to Kane
              C) Upgrade defence
              D) Save

                Easily A , can not advise which one tho
                Bench is also a toss up, probably Ings

                  Thanks. That would be the trouble choosing every week though.

              if you already own KDB and Mahrez, would you still bring in Foden for Saka.....??

                Well if you say it like that...Foden
                I have a pathological obsession with never buying Arsenal players so...there's that

              Trying to talk myself into three mci mids On a wc. Rationale:
              - foden is cheap so average price is low
              - kdb is nailed (and probs more so given result last week without him)
              - mahrez is only competing with sterling and the silvas. Not sane
              - No aguero takes out another player in the overall pep roulette

              This convince anyone?

                Money aside, Sterling over Mahrez.
