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.

    A) KWP + Grealish (442)
    B) Barkley + Jota (352)

    1. Von Lipwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Bearing in mind over the last 5GWs, Grealish: 25points, Barkley: 23points

      1. Dr Van Nostrand

        Barkley is out awhile just did his hammie

      2. Ibralicious

        1 month, 28 days ago

        Barkley + Jota in the ideal world without rotation, mediocrity, and a Klopp-Firmino companionship.

        KWP + Grealish in current FPL.

      A

    Lots of captain options this week!

    Salah, KDB, Bruno & Vardy all looking good for the armband.

    1. Von Lipwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Bruno seems like the safe option to me

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yes his away record is second to none. Salah & Vardy also look safe options to me.

    2. Ibralicious
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      That's literally just Bruno and Vardy since Salah is a 50/50 and KDB plays in the Fernandinho role with 0 attacking threat...

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Salah is back in training from today. Pretty sure he will start on the weekend now.

        1. Ibralicious
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Alright, let me know when he's done the next COVID test. 😀

          Same was said about Telles, and even Ronaldo earlier before the Barca game, both tested positive...

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            He's already tested negative.

            1. Bushwhacker
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 28 days ago

              And KDB is not playing the Fernandinho role ... lots of cluelessness here

        2. Pieterke30
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Agreed. Jota and Bobby both excellent yesterday.

          Klopp to start the Fantastic Four again?

      2. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Uh?

        Mate, did you read the above article?

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Rashford the best differential pick too.

      I like KDB a lot this GW but the easy swap of Kane -> Vardy (C) is difficult to ignore.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Agreed. I think I'll be making that move and possibly Son to Salah/KDB for a hit as well.

    4. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      United will get tonked by Southampton. If you angling for a lucky pen ... sure go Bruno

  3. Ibralicious
    • 6 Years

    So where's this Zaha COVID news coming from? Any sources? Seems to be a lot of buzz about it around here...

    1. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Nowhere but knowing our season, it's probably true. Lamptey coming on for me, of course.

      1. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yeah, I've already prepared my transfer. Fully expecting it to be true at this rate

        1. Pieterke30
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Nah it’s fake imho. Really not seeing anything abt it on the net. He is ok.

    2. ClassiX
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Someone on this site posted a comment back on Saturday that a family member ITK told him. He/she seemed pretty adamant it was true. No other evidence than that.

    3. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      It came from me.

      I told everyone last night.

      A friend of mine works with the first team.

    Best mid for 6.0 or less in the medium to long term?
    Currently planning to get JWP.

    The move is to downgrade James R and be able to afford KDB.

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      His stats make him a top choice. A few tricky fixtures means he may not get huge points but long term he’s good value

  7. dshv
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Is it worth to use my FT to change from sterling to kdb? Or the little guy have chance to do something..

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Raz has done nothing to warrant that trade until now. I would wait until he shows some form. Could be next week, could be 5 weeks down the line. Better to be a week late than 5 weeks too early.

      1. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        sorry, completely misread your comment. I would be tempted by that move if you have no other fires to put out.

        *runs off to grab coffee*

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I’d give Raz a week with Kun

    2. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Sideways. Sterling is a good pick

  8. Bielsa Murderball
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Would you remove son or kdb for salah?

      1. WE GO FOR IT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yeah. But not if you just removed him.

      2. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Not yet. Wait until the Fulham game.

      3. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Maybe for De Bruyne, see if his form improves.

    • Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Guys, need help. Frankly, don't want to sell anyone, point to draft in KDB/Vardy.

      Mendy
      PVA | Chilwell | Targett
      Son | B.Fernandes | JRod | Ziyech | Grealish
      Kane | DCL

      Forster | Reguilon | Brewster | Mitchell

      1FT, 2.4ITB

      A. Son => KDB
      B. Ziyech + Reguilon => KDB + Balbuena -4
      C. Kane => Vardy
      D. Ziyech/JRod + Brewster => 4.5 + Vardy -4
      E. Son + Kane => KDB + Vardy -4
      F. Son + Kane => Salah + Vardy -4

      3. Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years

        I think it is Saiss

    • Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Which is the more sensible move?

      A. Salah -> KdB
      B. Son + Jimenez -> KdB + Adams (-4)
      C. Just avoid City attack

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Not A for sure. You'll want Salah back asap.

      2. WE GO FOR IT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Hold this week. Try to get Bamford/Watkins instead of Jimenez next week

        1. Chandler Bing
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Can't get Watkins because already have 3X Villa. Just 0.1 short of doing Bamford + KdB for Jimmy and Son after KdB rose yesterday.

          1. WE GO FOR IT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            If you hold this week, you'd have 2 transfers next week. So you can probably downgrade someone to get the extra cash. Also, lets you see how City play against Burnley.

    • Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Can't watch Pool games happily without Salah and Liverpool looked electric yesterday.

      If he's fully fit I'll do Son to Salah for -4. Pretty sure that hit will be payed off by GW12 max if not this week (Mo loves scoring against Brighton).

      1. De Gea is GOAT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Im thinking the same mate. Excellent record vs BHI

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Yup I fancy him to score against Brighton's high line and get over with the headache of getting him back.

      2. Chandler Bing
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yeah, looks like Salah is a keep then. Is he likely to play against Brighton?

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Yes he'll start imo. Back in training today.

      Thoughts on this plan?

      GW 10: Jrod > Jota
      GW 11: Son > KDB ( If city look back to their best vs Burnley)
      GW 12: Sterling + Vardy > Salah + Werner (-4)

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Jota could be back to bench now that Salah is back. But injury problems in midfield could also lead Klopp to play 4-2-3-1.

        I like the plan but plans rarely work in FPL, let alone in this crazy year.

          Yes he is a rotation risk but could score off the bench as well.
          He looks electric at the moment and will be difficult for Klopp to leave him out.
          If he is rested in CL then I'll consider getting him for this gw

            He is a good pick no doubt. Hope he gets nailed on soon

        TBH I think Werner is a priority. He could have had 20 points over the weekend. Then again, I am not the best to offer advice atm.

        1. King Kohli
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Werner has got into good positions but been wasteful so far.
          Hopefully get him in a couple of weeks if funds permit.

      Kane to vardy

      Or just kane to vardy?
      No liv assets for now.

        I just cannot get myself to get Vardy. I know he breaks stats rules but he has also been so much "out of the game" recently.

        Keep Son and Kane.

      In a mistake ridden season so far where it took me 6 weeks to go from 4 mil to 750k; the worst expected GW I expected to be this week. Getting 86 points and 3 to play with an 8 point hit and holding Salah I expected the worst.
      I did 3 early transfers which was stupid but got away with it.
      I have had what I considered really good teams and I plunged down the rankings.
      It is an irony my best week to date came from mistake ridden poor planning.
      Anyone else fair the same?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Yeah, got away with it this week too. My other best week was also one when I had prepared myself for a bad week before a meteoric rise. I was wrong on both counts. Unpredictable doesnt begin to describe this season lol

    • Von Lipwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      1st bench:
      A) Kilman (ARS a)
      B) Brewster (WBA a)

      1. Von Lipwig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Or could play one ahead of KWP (MUN h)

      2. Make United Great Again
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        A

    • Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Martinez
      Ayling Chilwell Coufal
      Son Bruno Rashford Grealish Ziyech
      DCL Kane

      Steer, Brewster, Mitchell, Johnson.

      1.5 ITB. 1FT.

      Which move to make?

      A. Rashford & Son > Salah & Jota for -4.
      B. Rashford & Brewster > Bissouma + Vardy -4

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        If B how will you get Salah back?

        1. Make United Great Again
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I won’t be able to 🙁

          Assuming A. Then

          Also just seen I could sell Ziyech & instead of Son. Which I prefer

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Then probably A if you are happy capping Salah/Bruno this week.

            I would keep Ziyech.

            1. Make United Great Again
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Thanks mate. Finding it difficult to sell Son or Kane. The forms ridiculous.

              I’ll see later in the week.

      2. WE GO FOR IT

        1. Make United Great Again
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Would you sell Ziyech over Son? Can still afford Salah

      When is Vardy returning to the Party? Looked invisible last night 🙁

    • WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Spurs: Top of the table, in form, Second most GS
      Son: Second highest goal scorer, Tied most points in FPL, 56 points in 4 away games
      Kane: Highest assist maker, 4th most goals, Tied most points in FPL, 51 points in 4 away games, 1 blank all season

      Upcoming fictures:
      Chelsea's recent defense has been good but they haven't really been tested in the past few weeks.
      Arsenal were lucky to not concede 3/4 to Leeds
      Palace have 1 CS all season
      Liverpool have the most goals conceded in the PL. Could be without 3 out of 4 first choice defenders

      Form over fixtures has always been the mantra when you look at FPL. Selling both Son and Kane could be big mistake. Could get away with one as City's fixtures are really good and they have players returning from injuries.

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        A very selective way to look at it.

      2. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I don't disagree with all this but Spurs attacking stats have fallen off the cliff since GW5.

        I just can't look past selling both Son & Kane for Salah/KDB & Vardy this week because of the fixtures and captaincy next 3 weeks.
        For someone ranked OR 2m this is a golden opportunity to get some premium differentials in. If Son & Kane would have blanked everyone would be selling them for KDB/Salah & Vardy which I'm happy is not happening.

    • Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 28 days ago

      God rid of salah this week but honestly tempted to just get him back for son, don’t really see the reason to compound a mistake by being stubborn

      I guess the question is even with the great fixture run for city is salah still a better option. Then Kdb?

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Have Kane

      2. WE GO FOR IT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I'd say so. Ideally you'd want both (if City find form, which I'm guessing they would)

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Yeah ideally, would be mean losing Bruno and taking a hit, not sure burnley will be battered but let’s see how they do tonight

      3. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I'm getting Salah or KDB for Son this week.

      4. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        I firmly believe city will find their feet with the return of Aguero.

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I think so to, I watched the game yesterday and as a spurs fan it was another lucky CS against city, they could have had 2 or 3 easily, going to explode soon

          1. Van der Faart
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Dont think it was lucky. They had a lot of shots from long range that Lloris saved easily. Their best chance was the Dias header towards the end of the game.

        2. The Ilfordian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Yes, and that’s why Aguero would be my choice (so much love for KDB). Monitoring over CL and Burnley

      Any thoughts here? Vardy/ KDB/ Salah all looking good to go for.

      McCarthy.

      C) Jimenez & Podence to Vardy & ASM (-4)
      D) Any other suggestions?
