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.

    If you were to drop a Liverpool asset: TAA or Salah?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Salah

    2. Tonyawesome69

      Sals

  6. Bishopool
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Would you transfer one of these in and bench Saka? Or do nothing and play Saka?

    a) Sarr
    b) Foden
    c) do nothing

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      c both foden and sarr have great fixtures

    2. Kellz86
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I was also looking at Sarr this week, but hard to deny Foden since he recently was benched could easily see him back in the lineup this week.

      Foden edges it for me

  7. Oggle22

    G2G Save FT?
    Henderson
    TAA Saiss Aurier
    Salah KDB Martial Bruno Pulisic
    Rashford Jota

    Martin Egan Connolly Lundstarm

    Or do what I should have done last GW and start Egan over Jota

    Cheers

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Jota is streaky play capable of double digit haul in minutes, but also gets hauled off first.

  8. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Am I set for this week?

    Worth swapping Holgate to Garcia with my FT??

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Thinking low ownership & he is a favourite of Peps?

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 12 days ago

          He is a favourite but with quick turnarounds I don't see him nailed

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years

      i d save transfer. gl with Sarr too hope it pays off for you !

    3. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is it really better to get in Foden instead of Sterling? Can’t decide, please help guys

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I'm going with Foden instead of Sterling

      1. Orion
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Would give me some extra money to deal with... That’s great I know... But not sure about his game time 🙁 Yeah it’s Pep, but, Sterling is nailed for more minutes imo

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 12 days ago

          All City players are a risk

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I'd back sterling to get more points but obviously having an extra 6m to spend is a factor

  12. Pinky and De Bruyne
    • 8 Years

    Salah --> Mane too sideways ? Have 2 FTs

    1. Orion
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Think so. Salah to Sterling on the other hand...

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      keep Salah

    4. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Nah, keep salah

    5. Goodbye Horses

      • 2 Years

      I wouldn't be dumping Salah.

    Where is the captaincy hot topic/article?

    I have de bruyne and foden, both of whom were restricted to half an hour against Southampton and could find themselves in the starting line up of a city side looking to make amends for that poor performance. Foden could be the differential i need to propel me a few spaces.

    Meanwhile, my in-form man utd assets face villa. Villa might not be looking so dreadful defensively recently, but utd are tearing it up. Again, i have well-owned players to pick from as well as potential differential greenwood.

    And son. Not much good to be said about spurs at the moment...except that they're playing Bournemouth!

    Toughest one yet for me

          If the player coming in scores highly hits can pay off but -4 -8 -12 hard to claw back some weeks.

      Rashford or Greenwood?

      Money is no issue..

      Tempted by Greenwood but I’m thinking long term Rashy is more nailed and on more set pieces?

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 12 days ago

        you know who's also on set pieces? Harry Kane

        I've done rash to Greenwood but needed to fund mahrez, I'd still back rashford to score more points in the next games

      2. cheeky moses
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Tempted to say Greenwood. Offers so good value atm

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        I went Rashford since likewise, money is no issue. Prefer his set pieces and more nailed on-ness.

        I've went Rashford myself - he was unlucky not to have at least one extra return at the weekend, and the way he claimed the penalty was encouraging

        I think him + Bruno neatly cover nearly all of utd's FPL points from Pens & DFK's, and probably most corners as well

        Its harsh on Greenwood though, as he looks sharp - defences don't know what to do with him at the minute as he hasn't been figured out yet

        If money no issue it's got to Rashford more nailed and in pens

      Mane, DCL -> Foden, Kane for a -4?

          Cheers. You might be right. Spurs looked so uninspiring yesterday.

        KDB just but I wouldn't be surprised if salah smashed it soon, maybe this week is the week.

        I'm going with KDB but with a name like that are you allowed to captain anyone other than Bruno lol

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year

        A safe, B less popular according to poll

        Out of them two KDB

    15. IRBOX ⚽

      Why are people jumping on Kane? Looked absolutely rubbish against the Toffees and hasn’t been a prime FPL asset the past two seasons. Form over fixtures. Sterling is the one to haul this GW

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Because there are no other strikers to pick. And he's playing Bournemouth. That's literally the reason.

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          There are lots in better form and as I said form trumps fixtures.

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Who?

            Vardy isn't in better form. He was very lucky to score twice against CPL. Ings maybe, but those next two are pretty awful fixtures. Could wait until 36 with him.

            1. IRBOX ⚽
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              Isn’t he? 6 shots, 5 in the box says otherwise. Ings yes, Rashford/Greenwood yes. Going 5 big hitters in midfield a far better option than a terrible looking mouth breather

      2. Goodbye Horses
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        At a guess, I should imagine they're factoring in Bournemouth's form.

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Spurs form equally uninspiring

          1. Goodbye Horses
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            To say the least. Wouldn't be surprised to see a haul though.

      3. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I wasnt convinced, but now knowing you are strongly against the idea I might get Kane in.

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Please do. I will find the blank entertaining based on previous endeavours to captain him based on plumb fixtures.

      4. DandyDon
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 12 days ago

        One of the best ways to increase your rank in fpl - watch others take hits and captain for a game he should score in only to blank! I went for five in midfield instead.

      Bottomed

      Anything you’d change here?

      Had an awful GW and slipped down from 21k to 34k OR and lost some ground at top of my cash ML. Don’t love the defence. But... think having 2FT next GW will be worth more than rushing someone in now.

      1FT 0.4itb
      Pope
      TAA, Doherty, Kiko
      Salah, KDB (C), Mahrez, Bruno, Pulisic
      Rashford, Greenwood
      (Martin) (Jimi, Lascelles, Simpson)

      Thoughts appreciated!

        Which defender/s would you be looking at bringing in next week?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Aurier, Azpi, AWB depending on funds

    17. ffakih
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Anyone tempted to bring in Troy Deeney as a differential?

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I love big troy but they just look to awful even though I think they'll beat Norwich, probably scrape a 1-0

        I am yes. But then again Im stupid.

      4. Gomolon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        He doesn't have a single goal or assist since the restart

      5. DandyDon
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 12 days ago

        No. Wellbeck yes

    18. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Very tempted by Salah and DCL to Sterling and Ings for a hit..... would you?

      1. kamdaraji
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        nah

      2. Freddiebell
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        No way would I be getting rid of salah especially for a hit
