Mourinho benches Son and Lucas as injured Holgate misses out for Everton

There are two Premier League matches kicking off simultaneously at 18:00 BST, with Bournemouth hosting Tottenham Hotspur and Everton facing Southampton.

There is bad news for owners of Son Heung-min (£9.7m) and Lucas Moura (£7.1m), with both of those wide-midfielders dropping to the bench at the Vitality.

Steven Bergwijn (£7.2m) and Erik Lamela (£5.7m) come in for those two players.

The suspended Eric Dier (£4.8m) will be unavailable until Gameweek 38+ and is replaced by Jan Vertonghen (£5.2m) at centre-half, meanwhile.

Two more popular Fantasy Premier League purchases, Serge Aurier (£5.1m) and Harry Kane (£11.0m), keep up their post-restart ever-present records.

Kane, Aurier and Son all have double-digit ownerships in the top 10k, with almost one in four of these managers owning the Korean.

For the hosts, Callum Wilson (£7.4m) returns from a two-match ban and replaces Dominic Solanke (£5.1m) in attack.

Dan Gosling (£4.8m) for Lewis Cook (£5.0m) is the only other change for Eddie Howe’s side following their 5-2 defeat by Manchester United.

At Goodison Park, Mason Holgate (£4.4m) misses out for Everton with an injury he picked up on Monday evening.

Yerry Mina (£5.3m) replaces the sidelined centre-half, while Anthony Gordon (£4.5m) for Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.3m) is Carlo Ancelotti’s only other alteration from the starting XI that lost at Spurs in Gameweek 33+.

Alex Iwobi (£5.6m) recovers from a hamstring injury to start, while the fit-again Theo Walcott (£6.2m) is among the substitutes.

Ralph Hasenhuttl has unsurprisingly kept faith with the same 11 players who beat Manchester City on Sunday, with Danny Ings (£7.3m) again leading the line.

This fixture features the second-most-bought FPL forward of Gameweek 34+, Ings, and the second-most-sold striker, Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.3m).

Both of those players are owned by more than one in five of the top 10k.


Bournemouth XI: Ramsdale, Smith, Kelly, Aké, Rico, Lerma, Gosling, Brooks, King, Stanislas, C Wilson.

Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Winks, Sissoko, Lo Celso, Lamela, Bergwijn, Kane.

Everton XI: Pickford, Coleman, Mina, Keane, Digne, Iwobi, Gomes, Davies, Gordon, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.

Southampton XI: McCarthy, Walker-Pieters, Stephens, Bednarek, Bertrand, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong, Redmond, Adams, Ings.

    As a united fan, it’s great to see Pogba walking out patting Martial and Fernandes and encouraging them. Looks like he is part of the team spirit at last instead of moaning at his teammates.

      When did he moan at his teammates? It was more just distancing himself and looking disengaged. Not sure what you’re talking about

        Well he hasn’t been moaning this season because he was injured for the best part of it. Last season he was complaining at his teammates on the pitch most games. But yes I agree with your terminology a bit more.

    1. HashAttack

      No goal threat from Spurs ... Ramsdale did not make any saves

      1. Stoic

    Anyone feel Barnes is a good shout for next GW? 6 goals, 10 assists I believe against Bournemouth next

    1. Gomolon

      Those numbers are across the whole season - look at current form for transfers

    Anyone help with this team?
    Pope (3.9)
    TAA, Aurier, Ritchie (Holgate, Robinson)
    Mane, Bruno, Martial, Mahrez, Pulisic
    Kane, Jimi (Nketiah)

    Do I
    A; use 1ft to swap Kane for Vardy, free hit week after.
    B; free hit now and focus on Leicester and West Ham fixtures.

    Was Son benched for a rest or because of row with Lloris? Just curious ...

          The players I don’t own are all giving away plenty of fouls - awh YC bodes well for Maguire bps if a low scoring game. Just need martial or Greenwood to get me a goal!

        • DandyDon
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Yes! Greenwood and Martial combine!

          Rashford + DCL > Greenwood + Vardy (C) - 4. Just waiting for the game to finish to confirm.

          FFS approve?

          As a Bruno, Rashford, Greenwood owner is that a good or bad half for me?

          Bruno’s passing accuracy tonight has been awful.

          1. Gomolon
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Percentage?

        • Mini Mahouse
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Is son>Mane worth it for -4? Don't have other pool coverage
