What Spurs’ pre-season friendlies mean for their FPL attacking assets so far

Fantasy Premier League managers have now had the chance to watch Spurs on three occasions ahead of the new season – so what have we learned?

Jose Mourinho’s men come into 2020/21 with one of the most appealing set of fixtures, so interest in their attackers has been high.

Making sure we are invested in the right assets is important, so I have assessed some of the key talking points from pre-season, using some information from 2019/20 and Project Restart to back it up.

TopMarx Fan of Fantasy Football and Monty Python. "Archimedes out to Socrates, Socrates back to Archimedes, Archimedes out to Heraclitus, he beats Hegel. Heraclitus a little flick, here he comes on the far post, Socrates is there, Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad! Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside.”

      1.70 for Real Madrid to be a Spain Champion in 2020/2021 season - looks like a promo baring in mind what’s happening in Barcelona
      70% of profit in less than a year, I am going for it 🙂

        Looks like very good money

        Won't find a 70% interest rate at any bank that's for sure

          Because if they don’t win you lose it all!

    3. 824545201
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      Help me choose boys:

      A) TAA and Mitrovic (have VvD)

      B) Dier and Ings

      1. Werner Bros
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 hours ago

        A

      2. Olson
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 6 hours ago

        TAA is essential and Mitro is average and plays for a total bilge team that are going to try and play possession in a league where they won't get any

        Maybe a different combination

        1. 824545201
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 6 hours ago

          You have a 6.5 forward suggestion to replace Mitro? I think Adams is risky.

          1. Olson
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 5 hours ago

            Not the best person to ask. I really dislike the options at that price point so will be benching a striker and going between 8.5-10.5

          2. Amey
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 5 hours ago

            Adams is worth the risk IMO.
            If doesn't work out. Get Wood after GW 2

          3. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 5 hours ago

            Wood. Have cover for GW1

            1. Olson
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 5 hours ago

              Just 130 points at around the 6m mark when it's inevitable that form will force transfers is so unappealing. Wood goes on much whole half seasons without scoring.

              Everyone up front at that price point is a crapshoot. Rotten

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Wood.

            Chris Wood if you can miss week 1.

          3 months, 5 hours ago

          Very similar to mine, are u not worried your bench? U cant do any rotation at all. I have same problem.

          1. Sterling Malory
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 5 hours ago

            Similar to mine too, I reckon Douglas will rack up some good points. He was in my team 2 seasons ago before Wolves signed Jonny and joined Leeds.

            1. Legohair
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 5 hours ago

              I think douglas wont play at all. I believe leeds just bought new defender or im i wrong?

              1. Sterling Malory
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 4 hours ago

                They bought a new centre back (to replace Ben White) Douglas is an attacking left back.

                1. Legohair
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 4 hours ago

                  But will he play? I doubt it

                  1. Sterling Malory
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 4 hours ago

                    I doubt it too actually, I thought he played more last season but didn't actually have many minutes.

                    Still think he's a decent player.

        2. EgyptianKing
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 5 hours ago

          Very very similar to my current draft, so I like it!

          I am currently with Dier instead of Egan, betting on Spurs being able to clean at least a couple of times on the first GWs

        3. antis0cial
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 4 hours ago

          I like it, no bench is a concern though. Any plans for Utd / city assets?

          1. Gazans
              3 months, 4 hours ago

              Most likely am gonna do Aubameyang to KDB and Ziyech to Greewood depending on how well Ziyech plays in the first 2 GW

        4. Amey
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 6 hours ago

          That 1/1.5 m extra for Vardy is very difficult to generate .... FFS

          Might have to let Salah go from GW 1 draft .... Sighhh

          1. Holmes
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 5 hours ago

            Why Vardy?

            1. Amey
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 5 hours ago

              Maybe my bias towards him. But i really like his opening 5 fixtures Holmes.

              1. Holmes
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 5 hours ago

                Hmmm, I have shifted to Martial, Jimenez, Mitrovic frontline for now.

                1. Amey
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 5 hours ago

                  Steady !
                  Have a look at Adams too. I really think he's nailed !

                  A 4.5m Striker that starts games can be a game changer 😮

                  1. Holmes
                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 5 hours ago

                    Don't like their fixtures unfortunately :/

                    I do have cash for Werner/Vardy instead of Mitrovic but not sure whether that much investment upfront is worth it.

                    1. Amey
                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 5 hours ago

                      Mitrovic fixtures are poor actually. Some solid teams he's going to face imo.

                      I'm trying to kick him out of my team 😀

                      1. Holmes
                        • 7 Years
                        3 months, 5 hours ago

                        First 3 looks fine to me but yeah, not really exciting fixtures. Mr. Wood might be better even with one less game.

                        1. Amey
                          • 2 Years
                          3 months, 5 hours ago

                          😆

                    Where is this Adams? Which team, please?

                      3 months, 5 hours ago

                      I'm sorry if you thought that he's a 4.5m Striker.

                      He's a 6m Southampton Striker.

                    Who is the 4.5m striker who starts games mate? Che Adams is 6m isn't he?

            • 1 Year
            3 months, 5 hours ago

            Here’s my ore fixture draft if it helps.

            McCarthy Button
            TAA Mitchell Ayling Vinagre ( AWB)
            Mo Auba Koucek (Greenwood) ( Gordon)
            Vardy Jim Adams

            Thought was to get Bruno in 2 and KdB in 3 and shift money back from Adams to get Doherty in 4 or so

            1. Amey
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 5 hours ago

              Thank you bro !
              I came up with this. Not sure though.

              McCarthy 4.0
              Taa Doherty Shaw Vinagre 4.0
              Salah Auba Son Soucek 4.5
              Vardy Adams Mitro

              Mitro/adams can be Wood after 2/3 gw's

              1. Amey
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 5 hours ago

                McCarthy Shaw 4.0 can be
                Ryan KWP Taylor

              2. pingissimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 5 hours ago

                We’re looking at almost the same here

                Difference would be losing Doherty to Davies and putting Mitro in midfield . Haven’t juggled numbers yet to see what can be done there. But on principle I don’t want doubke 6.0 up top.

                Unless and until Bats goes to Palace 🙂

                1. Amey
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 5 hours ago

                  Actually mate, there are at least options in that range to swap around.
                  Midfield below 8.5 is sh.tshow till Soucek IMHO.

                  Hence I'm looking at that Midfield. But i love Vardys fixtures.

                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 5 hours ago

                    Willian at 8.0 could be decent.

                    1. Amey
                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 5 hours ago

                      Without pens & shared set plays .... Odds are against him 🙂

                      1. Hairy Potter
                        • 5 Years
                        3 months, 5 hours ago

                        Fair points

                    • 1 Year
                    3 months, 5 hours ago

                    Likewise

                    Chilwell gone too bothers me. But Vardy is my lucky player. Got me respectability in 2018/19 and I’d have blasted it last time had I kept faith to the end and not sold him for Mo.

                    1. Amey
                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 5 hours ago

                      Yup.
                      If Leicester get a fast start we can be ahead of the curve. Can jump on Werner if he starts hitting form too

                      1. pingissimus
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 1 Year
                        3 months, 5 hours ago

                        Yep

                        Very much working on the principle downgrades are easier and also don’t like that week 2 for Werner.

                  By GW 4 if we knew Greenwood is nailed, 7.5m position in midfield would be done and dusted 🙂

              Palace are interested in a years-long loan for Brewster. Benteke has still got a broken foot when he kicked out on a Villa player that got sent of. lol

                Palace will be interested I guess and may win out perhaps just because they are likely closest to offering him a run in the PL - what Klopp will want. There’s no competition really - Ayew has done great but is really a winger and that’s all we have right now.

                Would personally prefer Bats

            Can't see a template with best part of half dozen relatively unknown and/or at risk quantities. If that does turn out to be the template then it's likely to be the fastest collapsing

          I'm wondering if it's worth considering a team without Salah or Mané to free up purchase funds, also due to the fact that i'd find it very unlikely that Liverpool will have it that easy again...

            Not sure they had it easy, but it may be hard to perform for a 3 Rd season in a row. I fancy Man City for the title this year. That said, I'm going with Salah from the off. Easier to downgrade than having to find funds if he does start well.

          4. Olson
            • 6 Years

            Value in United attacking assets and captains in kdb and auba suggests going without could be entirely feasible

            Im starting with Mané, but he will become Bruno before GW2. No Salah.

          I've decided to go without Salah and Mané (I know, I know) in favour of other premium options.

          I expect the two of them combined to score somewhere between 35-40 goals combined again, of which I predict TAA and Robbo will assist around 50-60%. Is this a viable strategy?

          I can't think of any other premiums besides possibly United who have this level of point scoring alternative in the starting XI.

            I'm currently looking an no City and only TAA from Liverpool.
            I'm genuinely debating 3 Man Utd from GW2 - for results and value.

              Possibly. It depends on his free kick/corner duties.

          Puzzled why people prefer Mitro to Adams - almost unanimously.

          Adams had a season to match Mitro in his last season in Championship. He has better fixtures, is cheaper, plays for a way better team and began to look hot in the PL.

          There’s an awful lot of weight being put on a pretty humdrum season 2 years back - exact equivalent of Ayew last time. Really don’t see Fulham playing attacking football

            • 4 Years

            Nailedness is probably main reason

              Nailed one's are sh.t 🙁
              He's playing for a very good team. I'm pretty much sold for him tbh

            Mostly agree. But he is not cheaper though.

              I guess Pukki has a lot to answer for here. Got him on week 2 WC 🙂

              Just don’t see Fulham playing the cavalier football that makes a repeat likely.

            I've sold Mitro for Adams today. Convinced he's a trap for the first 5 games but I could be wrong.

              Like Wood

              Had him late on and would have got him earlier had he not got injured at wrong point. Slightly wondering about Barnes though at a million cheaper. Think historically there’s been little between them and last season has skewed values

        11. Return Of Chamakh

          Feel like this is the most balanced I've come up with so far for GW2 (will swap a couple out for GW1 and use 2 subs then get them back for gw2):

          Ryan (button)
          Doherty Robertson Baldock (Dallas Mitchell)
          Rashford Saka Greenwood DeBruyne Son
          Ings Jiminez (Davis/ Brewster if loaned)
          0 ITB

          Mitchell currently the weak link... Would be fodder but will need him GW1! Any tips??

              Greenwood is first sub so i will hedge my bets with those two.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years

            Azpi and Rich waste of money

          4. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 5 hours ago

            Azpi a risk with so many defensive options now for Chelsea. Like Rich as differential

          5. tomasjj
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 5 hours ago

            Chelsea defense is not solid.
            I would replace him, perhaps if you have money use it to move Rich.
            Everton are also not very free scoring.

            1. So Troublesome
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 5 hours ago

              Let me look at alternatives to Azpi, thanks all.

            3 months, 5 hours ago

            Fun

            Do like Rich and Vardy call but Azpi is a no no for me. Tierney has wretched fixtures up to 8 or so but then looks great. Think Arsenal defence is a wait and see. They weren’t that much better than Chelsea last time and post lockdown leaked plenty

            3 months, 5 hours ago

            Armstrong to Ritchie and Dallas to Dier/Davies is what I am considering with very similar team. If you keep Leeds defence Ayling seems a more nailed

            1. Hairy Potter
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 5 hours ago

              Which position are you expecting Ritchie to play for Newcastle this season?

              1. dunas_dog
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 5 hours ago

                Played in midfield (left side) and got an assist yesterday so certainly one to watch

                1. Hairy Potter
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 5 hours ago

                  Yeah, I'd expect ASM to be first choice left midfield. He may go back to right mid like he played under Rafa. If we don't replace Rose then he may end up competing with Dummet for left back.

                  1. Hairy Potter
                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 5 hours ago

                    I like the Ayling suggestion. He seems to get quite a bit of space with the ball in Leeds system (from the little I've seen) and the Premier league isn't blessed with too many good left wingers.

                    You mean asm or ritchie?

                      ASM should be nailed as long as his hamstring holds out.

                      I'm not 100% sure where Ritchie will play or if he's definitely nailed. At 5.0 he could be worth a punt.

              Cheers. Yup I'm looking at Armstrong to ritchie....depends if ritchie expexted to play in midfield or left back... ...

              The 5m defender that appeals if nailed is reece James..otherwise justin to spurs....

              Need to research ayling v dallas.....

          Is Doc being brought in to be a sure starter for Spurs, or are we assuming too much? If so...

            If Aurier is staying at Spurs then Doc is out of my team. Not paying 6.0 for a rotation risk

              We need signings in different positions tbh but it's good for our thin squad

                3 months, 5 hours ago

                You think United don't need a good DM to play alongside Pogba? Can't be relying on Matic...

                    Wouldn't he play alongside Pogba in midfield?

                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 4 hours ago

                      Nope.
                      We'll need Matic/McTomnay/Fred to play anchor

                I don’t know much about him - but agree more squad depth is needed

                  Quite same to Bruno. Less mobile though from what I've read

            Chelsea and ManU following a strategy at the moment to load up on attacking mids - merely gaps in their teams or trying to emulate ManC?

        16. Qaiss

          Is Dohertys Wolves replacement already in the squad or are they in the market? Saiss potentially moving to wingback Is good value at 5.0 if so!

          1. Noah’s Ark
            • 8 Years

            I’d imagine they will buy to be honest

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 5 hours ago

            No chance Saiss plays there. Traore and Vinagre would be my bet for GW1, but expect them to strengthen in the wing back area.

          3. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year

            Jonny out and Doc gone they'd be silly not to buy someone

          My team for gw1 below. Quite a few “placeholders”

          McCarthy
          James, Justin, Vinagre, Diop
          Salah, Auba, Manè, Son, Soucek
          Werner

          Steer, Brewster, Dallas, Davis

          No TAA until gw4 is the plan, too risky?

            You can get a better defence even without TAA. Drop one of the 12m mids.

            1. Noah’s Ark
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 5 hours ago

              I will be dropping one of them to Bruno so the 1.5 will be used to do that.

                • 10 Years
                3 months, 4 hours ago

                Just get Bruno right away and use the 1.5m to fix the defense now. Will save you a lot of transfers.

          What's everyone thinking about Ziyech's injury? If he is ruled out, is Mount back in favour?

          I will WC after GW1 to get in several City and United players.
          Ready to go?

          McCarthy, Ryan
          Tierney, Chilwell, Davies, Johnson, Vinagre
          Auba, Ziyech, Saint-Maximin, Traore, Pereira
          Kane, Ings, Werner

          Trying really hard to find a 4.5 keeper besides McCarthy and Ryan. Is Johnston’s worth owning? Will West Brom keep clean sheets? Save points?

          1. Qaiss
            • 4 Years

            Keep an eye on Martinez

            • 3 Years
            3 months, 4 hours ago

            the Leeds keeper, Meslier i think (since it would be hard to play Casilla in the current climate after his racism ban), they have some decent fixtures after the Pool game, and even the Pool game he can rack up some save points

              Not crazy about Chelsea defense.
              Otherwise it looks fine.

              Out of your three: B, as I am not sure Ferguson is nailed.

                Mates any feedback here?

                McCarthy
                TAA; Davies; Dier; Vinagre
                Salah; Auba; Son; Ziyech
                Werner; Mitro

                Some considerations:
                —> Ziyech to Greenwood after GW1 (I can start with Soucek instead of Ziyech, have 2.5 itb at least to do the Greenwood upgrade)
                —> Auba to KDB after GW2

                At that point I would have either 0.5 or 1 in the bank and will consider doing Son to Rash, Son to Pulli or Ziyech again, keep Son and save FT (decision would depend on form).

                Sounds a decent plan in your view?

                  Nice team nice plan........keep a eye on Ziyech minor injury

                    Cheers!

                    Yeah, will do so.

                    Will very likely do that spot (currently Ziyech) to Greenwood after GW1, as mentionned.

                    So if Ziyech seems to be out for GW1 I think I’ll go with Soucek and have 2.5mio itb to do the upgrade.

                Anyone else waiting for Bats to get a gig? I’d have him as the king of the 6.0s.

                I know Chelsea fans are sniffy - perhaps with reason for them - but he was great at Palace alongside Zaha when he went there. Can see him adding plenty almost wherever he went.

                  I remember seeing him at Marseille, and he was great.
                  Shame he went and sat on the bench for years.
