Spurs 2-1 Brighton

  • Goals: Harry Kane (£10.9m), Gareth Bale (£9.5m) | Tariq Lamptey (£4.7m)

ONLY A NORTHERN SON

Son Heung-min‘s (£9.6m) first Fantasy Premier League blank since Gameweek 3 helped identify an emerging trend in home matches this season.

During a 2-1 win over Brighton, the South Korean was a largely peripheral figure, ending a run of three straight double-digit hauls.

Against the Seagulls, Son registered just one attempt on goal and, crucially, none in the box. It was the second outing of 2020/21 in which he failed to shoot inside the penalty area, a Gameweek 3 draw with Newcastle the previous one.

Son and Kane compared for shots in the box this season

As you can see from the table above, away matches have been much more Son’s forte this season. These have often allowed the South Korean to make use of his extraordinary pace. Naturally, that is something he has enjoyed less often at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where opposing sides are a lot happier to sit deep and minimise space behind the defence.

Combining the wins at Southampton, Manchester United and Burnley, Son averaged 2.7 shots in the box per away match, never once dropping below a total of two.

Compare that with home matches, and we see two occasions where Son failed to shoot in the penalty area and an average of 0.8 shots in the box per game.

No wonder then, that 74.6% of Son’s FPL points this season have come on the road, even though he has registered more Premier League minutes at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium than away from it in 2020/21.

So, moving forward, what does that mean for the most popular Fantasy asset of 2020/21, currently owned by 58.9% of managers worldwide?

Well, a Gameweek 8 trip to West Bromwich Albion is unlikely to trouble many, especially with their recent defensive improvements somewhat disappearing at Craven Cottage on Monday night.

However, two of the following three fixtures are home runouts for Son, against Manchester City and Arsenal. Ominously, these two clubs sit inside the top three for goals conceded this season, having only let in eight and seven respectively.

Furthermore, Spurs’ three away matches after visiting the Hawthorns pit Son and Kane against Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Liverpool. Again, neither one of those is an ideal fixture.

Anticipating further struggles for the premium midfielder is worth noting for Fantasy managers looking to get ahead on the upcoming fixture swing for Spurs.

HARRY, DUKE OF SUSSEX

Owners of Harry Kane (£10.9m) may be asking similar long-term questions about the premium forward but, against Brighton, he demonstrated the advantage he has over Son: penalties.

The centre-forward won Spurs’ latest spot-kick himself, helping him manage six points from a game when the Sussex side largely restricted his goal threat. That said, he was inches from a double-figure haul, as he struck the back post in the aftermath of a second-half corner.

Still, as you saw above, Kane only shot twice in the box on Sunday evening, one of which was accounted for by the penalty kick.

While he carries the same caveat as Son moving forward in terms of those fixtures, there has been a slightly more of an even spread of strong performances across home and away matches for Kane this season, although 42 of his 71 points have come on the road (59.2%).

He has outscored the South Korean at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium by 21 points to 17 this season and has out-shot him too. Across Spurs’ four home league matches in 2020/21, Kane has 13 shots in the box to Son’s three.

BALE-OUT

The main football headline from this game was, of course, that Gareth Bale (£9.5m) netted the winning goal, his first since returning to Spurs.

The Welshman was able to finish this game joint-top for shots in the box, with a total of two, despite featuring only for the final 20 minutes.

He has looked lively in all of his substitute appearances for Spurs this season but it must be said that caution is still encouraged for those contemplating paying £9.5m for him, not least because of the upcoming fixture-swing.

Jose Mourinho confirmed after the 2-1 win over Brighton that he was still managing Bale’s minutes this season, following earlier fitness problems. Crucially, he specifically let us know that he is not ready to play 90 minutes in the Premier League yet.

“We were in need of a goal and I’ve been telling you for a couple of weeks that Bale is improving. I know he doesn’t have 90 minutes of Premier League in his legs. We are using the Europa League matches to improve his condition and today he scored a winning goal, which is a great feeling for the team.” – Jose Mourinho

I LOVE LAMP

In Gameweek 7, Tariq Lamptey (£4.7m) proved once again that owning him in 2020/21 is not for the fainthearted. 

Despite impressive performances this season, he had averaged just 2.3 points per game between Gameweeks 1 and 6, against Spurs, the Brighton wing-back finally delivered on his underlying promise.

It was his trademark runs into the box that allowed Lamptey the time and space to slot in an equaliser for the Seagulls in the second half.

However, in keeping with the rollercoaster nature of owning Lamptey, he was forced off with a muscle problem in the 78th minute, earning a yellow flag for Gameweek 8.

Even more frustrating is the fact that Graham Potter did not address this after the match, opting to praise Lamptey for his exploits rather than explain his withdrawal.

“When you are wing-back on the other side has got the ball, it’s good to get in at the back post and Pascal Gross did really well to find me and I slotted it away.” – Tariq Lamptey

Fantasy managers should also keep an eye for any updates on Solly March (£5.0m) in the coming days, as he left the trip to Spurs with an ankle injury.

Owned by 1.1%, the player himself is not necessarily important to the Fantasy scene but Potter replaced him with Bernardo (£3.9m) in Gameweek 7. 

Should March be out for a particularly lengthy spell, we could see a regularly starting £3.9m defender, which might come in very handy indeed, especially when we consider how forward-thinking Potter’s wing-backs have been this season.

POTTER ROULETTE

However, Fantasy managers were given another reminder of how unreliable Potter can be in terms of team selection.

After a period of relative settled status for most of Brighton’s first-team players, their boss threw two massive spanners into the works on Sunday evening.

Mat Ryan (£4.5m) came into Gameweek 7 owned by 14.6% worldwide, the third-highest among goalkeepers, but he was surprisingly left out of the Seagulls’ squad entirely.

And top-scorer Neal Maupay (£6.6m) was also absent from the matchday selection, with neither player dropped because of injury or coronavirus reasons, as far as anyone has been told at this point.

“Rob Sanchez comes in. He’s a young goalkeeper with some fantastic attributes and we think he can help us in this game.” – Graham Potter

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Reguilón, Dier, Alderweireld, Doherty; Højbjerg, Sissoko; Son (B Davies 85′), Ndombèlé (Lo Celso 64′), Lamela (Bale 70′); Kane.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (3-5-1-1): R Sánchez; Burn, Veltman, Webster; March (Bernardo 66′), Bissouma, White, Groß, Lamptey (Mac Allister 79′); Lallana; Trossard (Welbeck 74′).

          And the worst thing is eating something that looks good, and then noticing that the "confetti" that was rotten last time would have been delicious this time, but is left there unused but many others are smiling eating it. (Thank you Lamptey for bench points)

            Martinez (Steer)
            Trent - Taylor - Coufal (Dallas & Lamptey)
            Zaha - Podence - Son - Salah (Burke)
            DCL - Jimmy - Kane

              Could you try and get Vardy in for Jimenez? Vardy looked really good against Leeds

            So Maupay's gotta go. I want budget, is Bamford the best shout for sure?

              I like Antonio the best if he's fit. But if he's not then I'd probably go for Wilson

          4. Vazza
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Coady to Bellerin

              Rashford or Bruno?

              head says Bruno for the consistency but heart says Rashford who looks on fire lately.

                upgrade to KDB instead if possible.

                If cant then Bruno, he's clearly the best player for ManU at the moment

              A) Maupay > Bamford
              B) Maupay + Barkley > Bamford + Foden -4
              C) Maupay + Barkley + Rodriguez > Bamford + Foden + Grealish -8

              Defence is a big worry esp if lamptey is out injured. 1FT and 0m itb.

              Martinez
              Taa (mci) Lamptey (injured?) James* -- Mitchell* Saiss*.....*rotation prone
              Salah Son Havertz(SHU) Barnes(WOL) -- Burke
              DCL Kane Watkins

              A: Save FT and hope for the best. 2FT's over intl break very handy
              B: Saiss >> Coufal
              C: Something else.

                Which combo looks a better option medium to long term?

                A) Mane/Sterling & Watkins
                B) Rashford & Grealish

                Will have Salah & KDB.
                So Mane or Sterling will be double ups depending on City or Pool fixtures.

                  • 10 Years
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  Everyone thinks there is a template, but I bet if you named four starting players beyond Son, Kane, Salah and DCL then probably only 5% or so of the top 100k players would have all four. The top owned defender after TAA (who lots are shipping) is at around 20% ownership.

                  There's probably a squad template of the same 25-30 players discussed on here, but:

                  a) that still leaves a lot of variation
                  b) the fixtures turn soon, and those with a WC will start looking very different.
                  c) FFS is a very small sample. For example, the players below are often mentioned on here but have tiny ownerships.

                  Mendy, Coufal, Bellerin, Dallas, Reguilon, Semedo, Dias, Foden, Barkley, Podence, Sterling, Ziyech, Pulisic, Maupay, Watkins, Antonio.

                  The team template is largely a myth.

                2 months, 24 days ago

                Thoughts on bringing in Havertz as a punt? Could do Robbo -> Coufal, Podence -> Havertz/Ziyech

                Also think Vardy looked really good against Leeds! Extremely tempted to bring him in but I'd have to make 3 transfers (Got 2 FT's)

                1. Tonyawesome69
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  I think Ziyech is a better option than Havertz. Transfers look good.

                    Yup, in form and cheaper too!

                    I've got Werner as my attacking Chelsea player already, would you double up on the Chelsea attack?

                    Otherwise I could do Robbo, Podence and Werner -> Vardy, Ziyech and a 5.7M Def

                      I'm not a fan of Werner as an FPL pick but I don't see an issue with the double up. Also I haven't considered any LEI players.

                  Not Havertz. He looks like one of those players who's great in real life, but not so great as a fantasy option (at that price anyway)

                  1. karsworde
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    2 months, 24 days ago

                    Of course yeah. He's got plenty of minutes to prove himself as a viable FPL option but hasn't delivered yet. Having said that, I do think he's close to a big performance which will turn around a few heads

                Another rubbish GW. What to do here with 2FT? Much appreciated with some suggestions.

                Most likely involve transferring out Robbo to Chilwell. 2nd transfer could change Vassilev to Wilson/Bamford/Antonio (if fit) or keep the funds to change Son to KDB/ Sterling in GW10.

                Also I'm interested in doing Taylor to Coufal in 2-3GWs time

                A couple of weeks ago when I was doing RMWCT team with Vardy in it absolutely everyone was telling me not to go with him due to his lack of shots etc now everyone is looking to bring him in!

                  Vardy was scoring only from pk. Leicester wasnt giving him any service.
                  Now, everything changed, they played arsenal and leeds that fall into theire strengths.
                  Praet and tielemans are the most important to Vardy. They steal and they launch him or Barnes.

                  If fit, Kun, Antonio, martial, Kane, all ahead of him IMO
                  Just a matter of fixtures and lack of options

                After GW 8, would you rather have:
                Robertson + Zaha
                Or
                Bellerin + Son
                ?

                For those of us that have spunked their wildcard I'm not sure we can bench boost in gw19 (or even 18 if thats when the dgw is).
                Gw29 (cup qf's) is likely to be very hard to negotiate without a chip but I'm not sure how useful a wildcard will be as the player's we'll want in it are also probably the ones that won't have a game in gw29, therefore free hitting in gw29 seems best. But I can't see how we can boost in 19 without free hitting in 18 as the optimal teams will be just too different.

                Seeing as fh a much better chip than bb I'm noe thinking msyne triple cap in 19 instead

                  Thing i've learned from past few seasons re: chips is that personally, they're a waste holding on til the DGWs as by then, any move you make will probably be blocked or negated by others doing the same thing. Bench boost also rarely pays off.

                  Last season's free WC at project restart was abit an anomaly imo.

                  1. thegaffer82
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 24 days ago

                    I'm sure it's just blind luck, but I've had easily the most success with the BB chip and timing a WC to ensure I have at least 12 or so DGWers in a DGW along with your Salah or Kane or whatever. I've had quite a few 100+ GW's with this strategy (147 point GW a few seasons back)

                    FH and TC on the other hand have been turd for me

                    1. Rhinos
                      • 7 Years
                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      that's wrong though. Your bb is simply your 4 cheapest or worst players. The others would have scored you points anyway

                    • 7 Years

                    that doesn't make any sense though coz if even if you're right that you won't smash everyone in a dgw it's still better than being smashed by everyone

                      Coufal is cheap and look at next 2 fixtures and plenty of good ones over next couple of months too.
                      I know Chels are doing well but I don't believe they have turned into 80s/90s Milan all of a sudden and you already have Chil.

                  Defence is a bigger problem area with rotation risks with saiss/james. Focus on that first

                    With Auba haul added to that I can see many dead teams doing well. Tbh I am behind my own gw1 team atm...

                  It's going to happen sooner or later.

                  But, we've seen enough this season to know that there are better options in DF and the cash saved on not having TAA or Robbo can be invested nicely into other areas of the team.

                  TAA's haul came in the CL last week, typically. Is a question of when rather than if they haul though. Seem to remember it being similar start of last season.
