Doherty makes Spurs debut as Everton hand starts to three summer signings

Following on from Leicester City’s 3-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion, the second Premier League match of the day sees Tottenham Hotspur take on Everton.

Kick-off in north London is at 16:30 BST.

The headline team news is that all five major summer signings from these two clubs are handed their full debuts today.

Matt Doherty (£6.0m) makes his Spurs bow at right-back, with Serge Aurier (£5.5m) relegated to the bench.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£5.0m) also slots straight into central midfield, as expected.

Having not featured for the Lilywhites in pre-season thanks to self-isolation and international duty, Harry Kane (£10.5m) is back to lead the line.

Son Heung-min (£9.0m), Dele Alli (£8.0m) and Lucas Moura (£7.0m) will support the England international in attack.

All of Everton’s three summer signings make their full debuts, with central midfielders Allan (£5.5m) and Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.5m) selected in Carlo Ancelotti’s starting XI.

James Rodriguez (£7.5m) also makes the cut, despite having started just one league match in the last 11 months.

Son and Doherty are the most-owned players on show here, with both players boasting double-digit ownerships.

Kane was the fourth-most-popular captaincy pick in Gameweek 1, with just over 300,000 FPL managers handing him the armband.

Richarlison (£8.0m), who may well be occupying a wide-midfield role based on Everton’s starting XI, is the only Toffee with an FPL ownership of over 10%.


Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Doherty, Alderweireld, Dier, Davies, Hojbjerg, Winks, Dele, Lucas, Son, Kane.

Everton XI: Pickford, Coleman, Mina, Keane, Digne, Allan, Gomes, Doucoure, Rodriguez, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.

      Easy call to get Alli out. Alli > Greenwood it is.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Either him or Willian (WHU)

        1. Strchld
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Dont like Willians fixtures after WHU

            Auba to go with those fixtures and he can represent ARS in my team, happy enough. Greenwood may get rotated?

      Alli > Sissoko, Mou defensive movement? Avoid Spurs then!

      Can’t wait to do Havertz and Ings ➡️ Bruno and DCL

      It's such a treat always picking the wrong forward between Ings and DCL 😆

      What I am expecting from Mou's Spurs

      LOL at me for picking Spurs players

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Told myself one of the things I would do this season was not get fooled into buying Spurs attackers. Here I am with Kane anyway...

        1. Keep Calm and Play On
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Tbf he is probably the best option but I think I’m getting rid of all of them

    12. Little Red Lacazette

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

      2. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
        • 1 Year

      3. Babelcopter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

      Jose won’t love Dier after that.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        It wasn't Dier. It was Alderweireld.

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

      Spurs need to take a leaf out of Everton's book and invest majorly in central midfield.

      1. Dr Van Nostrand
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        They be broke. Could only afford Hojberg

      2. TheSteel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        They did. Berg, Lo Celso, Hojberg

        Dear Mr Son

        Can you please rise up to the occasion?

        Best regards

            Careful. The last time I kindly asked him that he got me a red card when he was my captain.

        2. BenDavies

          Spurs look absolutely terrible. Surely Mourinho's final top level job?

          1. Dr Van Nostrand
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            ManU should have been it for Jose. Levy stupid enough to give him another shot

        3. Locarno
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Winks off. All three of his owners must be gutted.

        4. Gudjohnsen

          Son overpriced at 9?
