Scout Notes

The FPL impact of Reguilón’s benching on Kane and Son

Burnley 0-1 Spurs

  • Goals: Son Heung-min (£9.5m)
  • Assists: Harry Kane (£10.9m)
  • Bonus points: Son x3, Toby Alderweireld x2 (£5.4m), Hugo Lloris x2 (£5.5m)

Mastermind Mourinho

Jose Mourinho’s tactical tweaks were a key reason why Spurs assets were somewhat subdued in Gameweek 6.

Fresh from surrendering a 3-0 lead to West Ham the previous weekend, the former Chelsea and Manchester United manager made important changes to his team for the trip to Burnley.

Fully expecting a physical and aerial battle, Mourinho replaced full-backs Sergio Reguilón (£5.6m) and Serge Aurier (£5.2m) with Ben Davies (£4.8m) and Matt Doherty (£5.8m) respectively, altering our expectations for the game.

“I did not want to risk losing the game. I thought about on many occasions of bringing Reguilon to the game because he is very fast through the corridor. I thought many times of bringing Lo Celso to play with Ndombele but that would mean losing Ben Davies, losing Moussa Sissoko. And when you lose aerial power against Burnley instead of winning maybe you lose (the situation where) Kane stopped a goal in our box. When they take the game to the direction they want they put long balls into our box.” – Jose Mourinho

While Mourinho’s plan successfully won the three points for his side, and a first clean sheet of the season, the absence of Reguilón and Aurier did somewhat dampen Spurs’ creativity in wide areas.

Reguilón benched as Gameweek 6 continues to hurt FPL managers

The question facing Fantasy managers now is whether Mourinho will take a similar approach to their upcoming home meeting with Brighton and the impact that could have on Son and Kane for the second week in a row.

It is certainly a potential strategy to use again, considering the Seagulls have registered the same number of attempts from set plays as Burnley this season (19), although that is admittedly from an extra match. 

Corners appear to be where Brighton cause the most problems. Their total of 13 shots direct from corners is the joint-third highest in the Premier League so far. That said, they will travel to Spurs without the suspended Lewis Dunk (£4.9m), one of their greatest aerial goal threats.

Of course, the team Mourinho selects to face Antwerp in the Europa League on Thursday is likely to give us more clues to help us with predicting the Spurs team for Sunday evening.

Home Turf

While Spurs’ more conservative approach in light of the West Ham draw played a big part in their subdued performance, Burnley also played their part.

Sticking to their 4-4-2 formation with textbook organisation and discipline, the Clarets frustrated Spurs on Monday night, highlighting once again that they can still provide Fantasy appeal of their own in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, they also managed to force Spurs back in key moments, especially in the second half. Burnley’s robust, direct approach led to them finishing the match with more shots on goal and a greater expected goals (xG) score.

“The shape was good, I thought the belief in the shape and working from it defensively (were good too). We broke up their tempo and kept key players quiet. We mixed the game up well in attack and asked questions, more than we normally do in games like this.” – Sean Dyche

Burnley host Chelsea next, who have a round-trip to Russia to navigate this week. A combination of that travel-time and the Clarets increased assuredness at the back could make life hard for Timo Werner (£9.3m) and his colleagues.

Kane I help you?

The shot counter from Burnley v Spurs

In a week where so many of the key Fantasy assets let their owners down, we should not overlook the fact that Kane and Son each still managed to get attacking returns despite the mitigating circumstances we have already covered in this article.

As you can see from the table above, Kane still managed to unleash four shots on goal, three of which were in the box, while Son got away with two there and one big chance. That said, the quality and accuracy was mostly lacking on the night, the results of creators missing from the back and Burnley’s approach, no doubt.

“I think it’s a bit of both (tactical decision by the manager and natural evolution of my game). When the gaffer first came in he said that when I drop deep, the wingers have to run in behind. There’s no point in having two or three players dropping as it gives no space to play those balls. It’s something I’ve been doing for a while but there’s more of a finished product than before. My passing is better than before, the finishing is a lot better, so yeah it catches the eye a bit more.” – Harry Kane

With Burnley’s restrictive structure, the pair were forced to improvise in order to continue their impressive run of form, Kane peeling away from the main pack following an Erik Lamela (£5.9m) corner, nodding back into Son’s path on the back-post.

“It was an unusual assist. When things are going your way they fall to the right people. I’m not too sure (how the streak has kept going). This season I’ve been dropping deeper and the wide players have been running beyond and that gives me space. Doing that together helps, when in previous years it hasn’t worked out that way.” – Harry Kane

Son has now been involved in nine of Kane’s 13 attacking returns this season, while the pair have combined for 29 goals (not including Fantasy assists) during their time in the Premier League. Only Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard (36) have a more productive partnership since assist records began, further pushing the case to own both players. As of the Gameweek 6 deadline, 27% of managers were in possession of his highly-effective double-up.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; C Taylor, Tarkowski, K Long, Lowton; McNeil, Brownhill, Westwood, Gudmundsson (Rodriguez 84′); Wood, A Barnes (Vydra 89′).

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; B Davies, Dier, Alderweireld, Doherty; Højbjerg, Sissoko; Son (Rodon 90+3′), Ndombèlé (Lo Celso 79′), Moura (Lamela 57′); Kane.

    Do we take anything for this GW from Sterling and Foden both starting or is it the ole P Roulette anyway....

    1. fr3d
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I reckon they both start again at the weekend

    2. potatoace

      I think he's definitely trialing something today. Could see it being rolled out Sat if it works.

    3. Abra Dubravka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I’d wait and see minutes first. Sterling has played a lot of 90mins recently

      1. Danno - Emre Canada
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Cheers, yeah formation test but see how minutes are managed.

  2. AlternativeB
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Wilson to Bamford? Or is it just "chasing points"? Have 2Fts. No other pressing matter

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I would be buying Wilson over Bamford if I was getting one

      2. Abra Dubravka
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Not yet. Some harder fixtures for Leeds now.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          What harder than City & Pool?

      3. AD2110
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeah I’d keep Wilson

      4. AK_FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Keep Wilson, better fixtures.

      5. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I would do it.

      6. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I'd do it ; can't see Bruce changing Newcastle's defensive set up, Leeds will attack and Bamford proved he finally can hit a barn door given enough chances.

      7. Going Home
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Newcastle won’t score many. But pretty much everything they do comes through Wilson. He’s a better bet than Bamford, but probably look to upgrade in the coming weeks

      Martinez

        Looks fine to me.

    • Abra Dubravka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      A) TAA & Podence to Chilwell & Zaha/Grealish?

      B) TAA & Jiménez to Chilwell & Kane?

      C) TAA, Pulisic, Brewster to Coufal, McGinn & Kane (-4) - switch to 3-4-3 with McGinn as 1st sub?

    • Blue&White85

      Thoughts on Mitchell? Do we think he’ll keep his place?

      1. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        When PVA came on Mitchell moved to LB, so I think there is a chance. Roy has praised him a lot in his press conferences.

        But no way to know for sure.

        1. Giggs Boson

            Yeah, I noticed that. I have 2 transfers so debating whether to switch Mitchell to Kilman.

            1. Agamenmon
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Was thinking the same, also have Saiss

    • Tony Martial
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Aguero replacement?

      Have Kane.

      1. Hansel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Ingsy

      2. Shineonme
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Jiminez or DLC

    • Joey Tribbiani
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Kimmich is so good

        1. Right In The Stanchion
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Fantasy euro 2021 first on the team sheet

            1. Nice to Finally Michu
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Should be a midfielder there though

        2. AK_FC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          2 FT, any suggestions on what to do with 1 transfer?

          Martinez
          Robbo - Chilwell - Saiss
          Salah - Son - Grealish - Pulisic
          Kane - DCL - Maupay

          (Steer; Dallas, Bissouma, Lamptey) 0.0 ITB

          1. Wolves Ay We
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Maupay to Bamford

            1. AK_FC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              That has been a consideration for sure. Was originally wanting to hold off to bring in Antonio, but his hamstring puts me off now.

              1. Wolves Ay We
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 3 days ago

                If Antonio out I would get Bamford. If Leeds keep making chances he could keep getting goals.

                1. AK_FC
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 3 days ago

                  For sure, as long as he is starting he will keep scoring, the create so many chances.

          2. korbendallas82
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            stats suggest keep Maupay, which i am doing. But close call.

            1. AK_FC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Ya tough call for sure. Any other suggestions on a move this week if I keep Maupay?

              1. korbendallas82
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 3 days ago

                not really. But you will offcourse do a tf with 2 free. Me for next week are eying a West Ham or Palace defender, if im lucky with injuries. Maby Dallas out, if you cant figure out anything?

        3. PLerix
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Kilman nailed though?

          1. Wolves Ay We
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Up to Nuno, but looks like it's his place to lose.

        4. Wolves Ay We
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          A) Zaha
          B) Bamford

          Which would you rather have in your team? »

          1. King Kohli
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Bamford

            • 6 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Right now Zaha due to fixtures. But depends on structure of your team. You running 3-4-3 of 3-5-2?

            1. Wolves Ay We
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Currently 3-4-3. Have Grealish in the 4.

          5. Shineonme
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            100% Zaha

            Not even a question. One is PL proven and has the fixtures. The other happened to score three last week. Look at all the managers annoyed at carrying that Villa striker

        5. King Kohli
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Best move here?

          Martinez Steer
          TAA Robbo Konsa Mitchell Johnson
          Salah Sterling Hamez Pereira Anguissa
          Ings DCL Maupay

          B. James + TAA > Son + Chilwell (-4) if James is injured
          C. Sterling > Son

                    Do B then, but Kane hauls could hurt as more will captain him

                • 4 Years

                1 month, 3 days ago

                When did you WC? This is in need of major surgery. Get Kane at any cost. You have at least two too many Liverpool defenders. Take a significant hit and prepare a team you’ll be happy with

                1. King Kohli
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 3 days ago

                  Yeah double Liv defence on WC hasn't paid off.
                  Considering D which lets me shift more funds into attack.

                  A or B. I like A due to recency bias, but I know Masuaku probably the better option

                Who would you say is the best replacement for Havertz? He didn't live up to expectations imo

                  I'd hold him for a few . . . they played very defensively against United, both teams going for a 0-0 ; don't see that in the upcoming fixtures and the first team attack is now fit . . .

                  Nah, seriously though i'd wait until City show some form, gone are the days of late where they're knocking 5 or 6 past teams. Just kun to Ings would do.

                      See my post below.

                      City are a headache currently regarding which way to go with them

                      There is no evidence from this year they are worth the money. (and I have had Sterling since week 2)

                      It makes the game fun though, 2 of the 3 certainies from last year are now up for debate with only num1 below a must.

                      1. liverpool attack
                      2 Liverpool defence
                      3 City attack

                  KDB looking super sharp thus far tonight . . . but I still think Pulisic now fit has huge upside.

                Double Wolves defence got any mileage?

                Thinking of dumping Lamptey for a Kilman?

                  1 month, 3 days ago

                  Was a few mins away from a double clean sheet with Saiss and Kilman. Think it is only good for three more GWs and Saiss could be dropped for Marcal soon.

                  Could be ok? Not sure I'd double but a team like Wolves who can defend as a Unit with the same core members, stands a good chance of a cs.

                  Saiss might return to Lcb, but Kilman offers competition

                  I have the Saiss Kilman double up

                  Think people should go with it more. I also do leeds double up and Liverpool double up

                  Looking to rid myself of the latter due to poor value

                This season is turning up some interesting data after 6 weeks.

                One of the main things im pondering is City attack and their upcoming fixtures.

                They have excellent upcoming fixtures after Spurs away. So much so i have Sterlng now and had planned KDB in for the double up

                However, their underlying attacking data is woeful. They are 12th best attack so far this year after 450min of games for them. Not a tiny sample to dismiss it. And are of course super expensive.

                Spurs on the other hand the 2nd best attacking stats after 6 weeks and both Son and Kane are affordable. However Ive gone with only Son so far since i convinced myself Kane is not worth it with his fixtures.

                However, a counter point is West ham also have excellent data , despite the crap fixtures. May be just worth it to get Kane, and have something like Foden from City only.

                Anyone else reconsidering City now and longterm?

                1. Bushwhacker
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 3 days ago

                  Without a striker I worry about them a lot. Maybe Torres is proving tonight he can be that player.

                  I cannot reconsider them after having ditched all my MCI assets. Or, let us say, I will reconsider that decision to ditch them later, if they start to show some form. But not before that.

                  KDB is coming in for me soon. going to be hard to try to fit Salah Son KDB but could be good

                    He was my plan

                    However City are not giving any indications yet ( sample size is small and they have had injuries) that he will be worth the 12million

                    Foden looks like he could get 90% of KDB output for 60% the price

                  This is the best selections so far this year based on underlying data (xGi per 90) from Understat. The FPL points are as expected overall following the players who are putting themselves in the best positions to score and assist.

                  Top midfielders : Salah Mane Zaha Son

                  Top strikers : Kane Vardy DCL

                    Vardy probably there on pens only. Poor selection this season imo. The rest speak for themselves

                      Yes

                      If you look at non pen xGi , then the 3rd best striker after Kane and DCL in the entire league is Che Adams

                  Torres needs to start in the league now surely?
