How Kane, Son and De Bruyne fared in midst of FPL fixture swing

Spurs 2-0 Man City

  • Goals: Son Heung-min (£9.5m), Giovani Lo Celso (£6.9m)
  • Assists: Tanguy Ndombèlé (£5.9m), Harry Kane (£11.0m)
  • Bonus points: Hugo Lloris x3 (£5.5m), Son x2, Eric Dier x1 (£4.9m)

THE TOUGH GETS GOING

Top 10k FPL managers refuse to ditch Kane and Son double-up for Gameweek 9

Tottenham Hotspur’s key attacking assets made significant statements in Gameweek 9 as both Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) registered attacking returns against Manchester City.

Both players saw interest in their services wane over the international break as Fantasy Premier League managers considering their increasingly tough upcoming fixtures.

But with arguably the hardest of those out of the way, owners of Kane and Son are likely to feel a lot more encouraged to be holding onto the dynamic duo.

As predicted by his most loyal fans, Son was able to expose Manchester City’s high defensive line in key moments on Saturday evening.

He found space behind the Citizens’ back-line as early as the fifth minute after Tanguy Ndombèlé (£5.9m) played an insightful ball over the top.

That made for a 10-point haul for Son, his fifth double-figure Gameweek score of the 2020/21 campaign. Hugely impressive when you consider that he has produced exactly six of these in each of the last four Premier League seasons.

Meanwhile, Kane put in a man-of-the-match, impressing mostly off the ball with his contribution to holding the ball up and easing pressure on his team-mates, who spent most of the game defending against Manchester City’s large share of possession (65.6%).

“I knew if I was going to drop deep the centre-backs were going to follow me and with Stevie and Sonny running in behind, it worked. My duties were mainly, holding up the ball, trying to buy time, especially when you’re under the cosh a bit. Win fouls and bring others into play. The most important thing is we have runners in behind.” – Harry Kane

That enabled Kane to fulfil more of a creator’s role, as we have become used to this season, assisting Giovani Lo Celso (£6.9m) for a 16th attacking return in nine matches.

WHAT ABOUT THE UNDERLYING DATA?

KDB OR NOT DB

Fantasy managers may be experiencing the opposite problem with Manchester City considering they are about to embark on a positive run of games but appear short of go-to attacking assets.

While they recorded their first blank of the season, it was not for lack of trying, as Pep Guardiola’s men dominated possession and the shot count (22 to four).

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) pounced on a loose ball in the box early in the first half, his shot likely to have ended up in the back of the net were it not for an offside Gabriel Jesus (£9.3m) getting in the way.

Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) did actually score after a Jesus knock-down, only to see that ruled out for a handball against City’s number nine.

De Bruyne struck wide from the edge of the box in the 50th minute before Ruben Dias (£5.5m) headed the Belgian’s late free-kick straight at Hugo Lloris (£5.5m) when he really should have scored.

The fact that Burnley, Fulham and West Bromwich Albion are three of Manchester City’s next three opponents is cause to believe that those who came close to attacking returns against Spurs can deliver on their promise in the near future.

The return of Sergio Aguero (£10.3m) to full fitness is also worth considering. An additional option for Guardiola can only improve the credentials of the midfield players on offer, although it also increases the risk of rotation for Jesus.

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Reguilón, Dier, Alderweireld (Rodon 81′), Aurier; Højbjerg, Sissoko; Bergwijn (Moura 73′), Ndombèlé (Lo Celso 65′), Son Heung-min; Kane.

Manchester City XI (4-2-3-1): Ederson; Cancelo, Laporte, Dias, Walker; B Silva (Foden 72′), Rodrigo; Torres, De Bruyne, Mahrez (Sterling 72′); Jesus.

      70-4 = 66 with Zaha to go.

      Early transfer Son to Bruno failed, had I waited I could have sold Salah instead of benching him (and would have gotten Son's pts instead of 0 from Targett).

    17. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3 months, 9 days ago

        60 with just Zaha to go. Time to delete my team!

        Just checked your rank.
        You’re gonna need 38 points from every player for the rest of the season to make the top 100k

        1. Sharkytect
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Haha. I was barely inside the top 6million a few weeks back. At this rate I should win it

          1. Sloane426
            • 1 Year

            Lol. Hope you make it back

          That’s not nice.

    22. TimoTime
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Everyone who was before, still thinking Kane > (V)ardy?

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Surely no one changed their minds about how he will do against Fulham because they looked bad against the best team in the league...

        1. TimoTime
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Was hoping this was the case

        2. FourLokoLeipzig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Best team in the league, maybe, but with a seriously makeshift defence. I was thinking to keep Kane before today’s game, but I feel more confident that’s the right move now. Vardy and Leicester can both be streaky and that may have stopped them (or at least slowed them) in their tracks

      2. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        After seeing Fulham playing I'm 100% sure of doing it

        1. TimoTime
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 9 days ago

          I like the confidence, most likely going to join you

      3. Rinseboy
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        its so hard to judge as we know Vardy can turn up at any time and Fulham is the best fixture right now. Liverpool were class, Fulham will not come close to how Pool played. But Kane looks one of the players of the season so far so would not be shocked to see Kane score at least against Chelsea

        1. TimoTime
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 9 days ago

          I'm a Chelsea fan and I can see Kane scoring as well.... Although Vardy definitely has the higher ceiling over the next 3/4 GW's IMO

      4. drughi

        Yeah after seeing fulham today i just have to get vardy, kane vardy is The easy route

        1. TimoTime
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Fulham are just pants aren't they

      5. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        He looked like he was limping off the pitch but probably nothing will wait, but think I’m still tempted..

        1. TimoTime
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Yeh I will wait until deadline that's for sure

      6. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        I was hoping he’s blank.

        1. TimoTime
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Lightning won't strike twice in a row?

          1. S.Kuqi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 9 days ago

            Ownership and captaincy% staying low and probably no price rise before dl

            1. TimoTime
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 9 days ago

              Very true

            2. Baps hunter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 9 days ago

              I wouldn't bet on it. Some may need the money.

          2. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 9 days ago

            I really doubt it. This is the perfect outcome for me.

    23. Rinseboy
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Would you swap out any of these attackers this week???!!

      Grealish Son Jota Ziyech Bruno
      Kane DCL

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Same below with Jrod

    24. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Do I still go for City players here? 1FT & 1.5 itb.

      McCarthy
      Chilwell, Cresswell, Justin
      Bruno, Ziyech, Rodríguez, Grealish, Son
      Kane, DCL
      (4.0, Saiss, Mitchell, Davis)

      1. Rinseboy
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Same dilemma. Son to KDB is tempting.

        I'll probably just do Saiss to Cancello

      2. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Lovely team my friend. We have the exact same weak bench funnily, I'll need to rectify mine cos of Lamptey this week - probably Saiss to Castagne/Chilwell/Cancelo, barring any shockers with Podence tmr.

        I reckon you could roll FT. Then if City look good, Kane downgrade and Hamez/Grealish to City could be gold

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          True mate. Who would I captain without city?

          1. Rinseboy
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 9 days ago

            Bruno looks great

          2. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 9 days ago

            DCL

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            as above. I have it still on Bruno just now - tempted to do Kane to Vardy for a hit to captain tho

    25. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years

      56 (-4), need Kilman to save my season!

      Desperately in need of a dull 1-1 with own goals in the Palace Burnley game, and a 1-1 from Wolves with Podence G+BAPs....

      Hopefully not too much to ask!

    27. Labile

      Have a feeling transfers this week will be the most important yet. Salah back. KDB with the best fixtures I’ve ever seen. Bruno likely most captained. Hard to ditch Son.

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Would you wc this? Players I'd probably change *
      Mccarthy button
      Chilwell James ayling* Taylor* mitchell
      Mané* Bruno grealish soucek* bissouma
      DCL Kane* Bamford

    32. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Which 2 to go?

      1) Mane or Salah
      2) Kane or Son

      1. JONALDINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Mane and Kane

      Watkins Dcl

      (Salah mitchell, davis)

      1.8 itb 1ft

      Already did lamptey to cancelo
      What else to do ??

      1. Nedvěd11
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Nothing

    34. Craicer
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Injuries and a Lamptey red leave me with 2 defenders next week. Saiss > Castagne -4 worth it?

      1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        For sure. I'll likely do the same (or for Cancelo) with FT

    35. Nedvěd11
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Got Sterling, overkill with KDB aswell as per date?

      1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        wouldn't want both. would prefer KDB over sterling but maybe not worth the swap

      2. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Capt Sterling

      If anything I've learnt this season is that sometimes holding back on moves can be the best moves.

      As much as can be said for being proactive about things, it can also hurt to be too reactive - and sometimes things make no sense, but still play out in your favour

      1. Captain Vantastic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Very well said

          3 months, 9 days ago

          Been a few examples already even not even halfway through the seaosn, but this week alone was pretty set on following many on here to sell Son (likely for KDB or for Bruno) and also sell Robbo for a hit to Chilwell/Cancelo after getting frustrated. Salah COVID allowing him out for Bruno definitely helped the decision, bit sticking with and not taking extra hits paid dividends

        Just choose good players with good fixtures and stick by them for 4-6 weeks. There are enough to choose from. Defence is not where it is at.

        Grealish, Son, Bruno, Salah, Mane, KDB, Sterling, Jota, Ziyech, Rashford, Auba
        Kane, DCL, Werner, Vardy, Ings

        1. Boyd to Sven
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I was with you right up until you mentioned Auba....

    37. Captain Vantastic™

      No TAA no goals conceded.

    38. Chucky
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Pull the trigger on Zouma,Son and Jimenez to Cancelo,KDB and Vardy (C) for -8? Have chilly already...

    39. Railwayman
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Beautiful 12 points from Robbo. Kept the lad even I had a FT. Happy days 😀

    40. Labile
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Son and Saiss ➡️ Salah and Killman?

      1. Nedvěd11
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Why sell Son..reckon he will score against Chelsea

      2. Danstoke82
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Son staying firmly in my team. He can turn it on against any team. Surely a season keeper barring injury?

      Too early for Aguero folks?? Or stop overthinking it and do Watkins to Vardy and slap the armband on him?? Other forward are DCL and Bamford
      Many thanks!!

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        The latter

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        Vardy looks a safer pick than Aguero at the moment.

          Thankyou guys!! Yeah your definitely right mate!! I need to get a reliable premium striker in my team and if I go Vardy I can easily get to Aguero and then Kane later on too!! Cheers fellas

      What formations are people playing this year?

      I've pretty much solely been 352 I think (not counting for autosub situations). Been contemplating swapping Podence out for Bamford/Watkins/Antonio or someone for a 343 but have so far stayed put

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        343 Podence is my bench player.

        1. Zlatan F.C
            3 months, 9 days ago

            3 5 2 has worked for me

          • Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left

            3 months, 9 days ago

            Fair - very nice team you have there. I always hate having benching headaches tbh, which is maybe what's driven me to have a dud 3rd bench and keeper (Davis and Steer, annoyingly re Villa), 4.0 defender in Mitchell and then was rotating Lamptey and Taylor(now Coufal) before Saiss issues meaning my bench has remained Saiss Mitchell Davis for a while.

            1. _Ninja_
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 9 days ago

              Cheers 2m in the bank not sure what to do with it. I would upgrade Davies to Bamford/Watkins if you can, good bench is important especially over xmas period.

        2. Danstoke82
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          I was 4-4-2 and had Brewster has 3rd striker but having him is pointless so upgraded to Bamford and played the standard 3-5-2. Now ticking over ok just about.

        3. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          343

        4. Snevitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Always 3 at the back, at the moment I have a strong front 8 so I change it around based on fixtures... I've made the correct decision 2 weeks running which is a miracle.

      2. Danstoke82
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Think I’m going to hold off Son > KDB for 1 week but tempted to do Kane > Vardy due to those fixtures and captain him v Fulham.

        Kane > Vardy 1FT yay or nay?

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        • Ray In Bruges.
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          McCarthy (Nyland)
          Chilwell Zouma KWP (Justin, Kilman)
          Fernandes JRod Grealish Son ASM
          Werner DCL (Brewster)

          Thinking about what to do next....thinking ASM > Jota? Can't tell if bringing in Jota now with Salah coming back is a bad idea or not, Jota seems undroppable =/

        • Zlatan F.C
            3 months, 9 days ago

            Who's the best defender to replace Saiss with for the next few GWs

            I have Robbo Chilwell Lamptey and Ferguson

            1. Danstoke82
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 9 days ago

              Cancelo?

              1. Zlatan F.C
                  3 months, 9 days ago

                  Yeah I'm almost certain I want to go with him just not sure if he is worth 5.5m and guaranteed a spot

                  1. Danstoke82
                    • 6 Years
                    3 months, 9 days ago

                    Couple of juicy fixtures coming up and he’s quite attacking. Wish I could afford him but feel I need to keep Chilwell

                    1. Zlatan F.C
                        3 months, 9 days ago

                Grealish just tweeted this;

                https://twitter.com/JackGrealish/status/1330612064012951553?s=19

                Looking for trouble for his owners, imo.

                  I agree completely with Grealish

                  Why would that mean anything for his owners? He's right as it is
