Comparing Kane, Son and potential replacements as I plan for Spurs’ fixture swing

Fantasy Premier League managers need to start making a plan for their Tottenham Hotspur assets as their incoming fixture-swing approaches.

Leading the way with their 71 points each, Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Son Heung-min (£9.6m) have been the catalysts for success during the first seven Gameweeks but that may not be true for much longer. 

Many of us will be relying on Jose Mourinho’s men yet again this weekend as they travel to face an out-of-form West Bromwich Albion side – but we cannot allow ourselves to get too attached.

From Gameweek 9 it will be a case of form versus fixtures as we see Spurs run into Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool in four of the five matches between Gameweeks 10 and 13.  Even though owning both Kane and Son has been almost essential in the early weeks of the season, I definitely think it is time we seriously examine the merits of keeping the pair beyond Gameweek 8.

    Is Creswell injury serious?

    Was planning Saiss > Cresswell but now maybe Robbo > Chilwell for free.

    Martinez
    Robbo Lamptey Kilman
    Grealish Son Salah James Ziyech
    Kane DCL

    Button Brewster Saiss 4.0 fodder

    Cresswell would replace Kilman in starting lineup

      Just go Coufal instead

    Really considering TAA to Chilwell, but are the coming Pool fixtures too good having held him all season?

    TAA: mci, LEI, bha, WOL, ful, TOT, cry, WBA, new, SOU
    Chilwell : SHU, new, TOT, LEE, eve, wol, WHU, ars, AVL, MCI

    McCarthy
    TAA Justin KWP
    Salah Son Bruno Grealish Soucek
    Werner (c) DCL

    Replace Barkley or Jorginho and for who? O.6m in the bank.

      Jorg seems to have lost pens to Werner ...
      JWP, Podence or Lookman might be nice shouts

          a lower priced option might be nice to get funds to attack the upcoming fixture swing and get manchester assets in ... or just get Martial ^^ .... willing to captain in gw9 vs. WBA?
