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.

    Don't shout at me, but could wilson to tammy actually be a good idea?

    1. james 101
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Looked at Tammy, but the fixtures aren’t kind either...

      1. how now brown cow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Chelsea clearly have plenty of goals in them though. I know they are going to be spread around, but reckon bamford outscores him?

        1. baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Bamford over him imo

        2. james 101
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Bam is my 8th attacking asset

          He’s an enabler and can be great on his day. I don’t rely on him though. Form may be dropping off.

          1. how now brown cow
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Yeah. I need someone to play every week.

            Maybe I'll look at adams tomorrow.

    2. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Not nailed, I wouldn’t

    3. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      How long is Pulisic out?

    4. Catastrophe
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Badly want Tammy to be an option but I think it will end in tears. Surely will get some bench time

    5. Tiki-Taka
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      better options

    6. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Considering this move if Wilson remains flagged.

    7. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Nice idea but he’s rotated.

  2. Runaway
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Which one looks more priority?

    A) Kane > Vardy
    B) Son + Robbo > KDB + Cancelo (-4)
    C) Bowen > Jota
    D) Combination of two above for -4 or -8

    Team atm:
    Martinez 4.0
    Robbo Chilwell Lamptey Dallas KWP
    Bruno Son Ziyech Grealish Bowen
    Kane DCL Brewster
    1 FT 1.9 ITB

    1. james 101
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Nay be an unpopular opinion but son and Kane are doing great. I don’t see why they can’t continue to.

      1. Runaway
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Indeed they are but I do not see myself captaining either of them until GW15 and having both in the team does not leave enough in the bank to have variety of captain choices for next 4-5. I think one of them is enough for the hard fixture run. It is difficult to ditch a top FPL scorer though..

    2. DannyD
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      C

    3. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years

      C

  3. g40steve

    Lamptey sellers who you replacing with?

    1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Why sell?

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Excellent at going forward, likes a card too much?

        1. baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Depends on the fixture imo

        2. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          I think he's still an ace prospect. Has been one of Brighton's best, and most attacking players. I'm keeping for sure.

    2. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Not selling. He'd be on the bench vs Liverpool anyway and is back the week after

    3. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      He is out only vs Liverpool, which is blessing. No risk for his negative pts in that game now.

    4. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Keeping, I would have benched this week anyway..

    5. Tinfoil Deathstar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Don’t sell unless you can’t field three other playing defenders. I was going to bench him anyway so it’s just a waste of a transfer IMO.

    6. ...al
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Just keeping at the minute. Bigger fish

  4. Catastrophe
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Which do you prefer? The hits would be spread out over next few GWs...

    A) Vestergaard, Son, Ziyech, Coufal (-4)
    B) Zouma, Son, Grealish, Vestergaard (-4)
    C) Cancelo, Ziyech, Grealish, Coufal (-8)
    D) Cancelo, Son, Grealish, Balbuena (-8)

    Vestergaard could be anyone up to 4.7, Coufal up to 4.6.

    Heading towards A as no other Spurs/Chelsea attacking coverage although would also like Cancelo for city's run-in as only have KDB.

    Cheers!

  5. Oliver Tockman
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Jota owners or those intent on getting him in:

    A) with Mane, Salah
    B) Only Liverpool attacking option

    1. Oliver Tockman
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Fearful of rotation or anticipating that he keeps his place? Cheers

    2. Rattus Norvegicus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I have Jota as my only Lpool asset he is just as likely to score as the other two at the moment but a fraction of the price.

    Hey guys. Was overwhelmed by the amount of support last stream for the first FPL Live! on Friday. Thank you so much. The first FPL Reacts! stream is starting right now, feel free to drop by and see what all the fuss was about. Those that did had a right laugh and we ended up going for 7 hours:

    https://www.twitch.tv/spearmintspaff

    We got to 50 viewers at one point last week and I’m humbled. Thanks again and maybe see a few of you in today’s stream. I also want to say thank you to my friend Yung who posted without me knowing about the stream.

    Those of you that are sceptical I am happy to give you a little background on myself and FPL: Top finishes – 18th FPL, 25th Sky, 2nd Mirror, 71st Daily Mail and 1st UFPL Monthly (for proof go check out the media section on my Twitter https://twitter.com/SpearmintSpaff). We also predicted both DCL and Bruno captaincy top picks last stream!

    TL:DR – I play too much FPL, come check me out on Twitch as we react to GWK 9 live.

    Bruno >> KDB(c) crazy?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Something else.

    2. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I am not against having KDB but for the moment Bruno over KDB for me.. Bruno vs SOU away is almost as good as KDB vs BUR and Bruno has the form

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Wut? United were god awful yesterday.

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Nope, it’s what I’m doing.

  8. Stupendous
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    72 with Zaha to play!

    Get in there Robbo. Imagine not owning Robbo?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Good stuff.

    2. CRO KLOPP
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      77 with Zaha to go,and no Robbo btw

    3. james 101
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      74 only Zaha left. Happy with that though this week.

  9. Will J 256
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Is Bamford and Antonio too cheap up top in a 3-5-2 with a midfield of:
    Salah, Fernandes, Ziyech, Grealish, KDB?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I think a little.

    2. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      If it works for you. I'm dabbling with 3 cheapies up top. Wait until Antonio is back and playing though yeah?

      1. Will J 256
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Oh yeah definitely. Thinking about bringing him in for GW12

    3. hshepherd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Not too cheap at all if it lets you get that midfield. Heaps of cheap alternatives such as Wakins, Wilson etc if Antonio isn't fit

    4. Brehmeren
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yes

  10. Rupert The Horse
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Anyone know?
    If the og had been saved by Schmeichel would that count as an actual save?

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Save

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Trying to get my head around it.

    2. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Don't believe so. But don't know.

  11. Major League Shocker
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 27 days ago

    After watching Andy's stream I'm just struck by the irony of Lateriser's ideas taking over the world of FPL even as Lateriser has had a tough season.

    Lots of managers just making nothing but heavy hitter moves now. Leaving the rest of their team alone, keeping whichever budget striker they have and thinking of nothing but getting the right captain in for every gameweek. Not saying this is good or bad, just amazing how it's happened.

    1. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Paradox of skill.

      As was highlighted by Marc Rubinstein a few seasons ago.

    2. DAZZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Example? What heavy moves are being made?

      1. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Andy was talking about some combination of Kane, Son, and Rashford to something involving Salah, Vardy, Sterling (maybe Jota for one of these to make it affordable). While some of his commenters continued to insist he needed to remove Maupay, but he was happy to not worry about Maupay's slot at all.

        1. DAZZ
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Ahhh i misunderstood. I see. Yeah it’s quite common this season but with the abundance of options in midfield it was always going to happen. Hokey cokey between the big hitters. 1 assist in 3 for Mane you’ll probably see people swapping soon.

    3. liner
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      If (C) thing is out, this game would be much skill reliant than luck (like now).

  12. CelticBhoy1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Who would you rather have going forward

    A) Salah and Grealish

    B) Son and Ziyech

    1. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      A

    2. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      A but obviously not the next week or 2

      1. CelticBhoy1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Why not? A has much better fixtures next two gw's

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Has Salah had a negative test yet? If not still some doubt he plays vs Brighton in only 5 days

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

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

      Yeah. I’m going to watch it again. Thoroughly enjoyable.

  14. Warby84

    Kane to Vardy(C)
    Wilson to DCL

    Which is priority??

    Tempted by the 1st and give Vardy the armband a lot more exciting..

    1. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Do both?

    2. Kane Lane
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Keep Kane

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I just don’t compute how anyone doesn’t have DCL.

  15. Kane Lane
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Worth minus 4 Podence to Jota got 1.2M left I was going to use it for Fernandez to KDB or Sterling next week. I could do the Pod to Jota then swap Salah out for KDB or Sterling game next week still have Jota for Wolves the bring Salah back for Fulham take out KDB or Sterling

  16. Tony Martial
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Son and Saiss ➡️ Salah and Killman -4?

    Saiss has got to go.. and Salah has to come back. Also have Kane

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I can’t imagine losing this years best player for a hit.

      1. Tony Martial
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I’m not getting Bruno Fernandes??

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Why the question marks on a statement?
          Do you really think Bruno has been better than Son? Especially with the price difference.

  17. DAZZ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Is there a chance KDB gets a rest next weekend with Olympiakos midweek? Or is that just silly considering their form and league position? I’d imagine KDB is currently safe from rotation?

    1. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I think City almost qualified so if anything they’ll rest him midweek, they need him in the prem a lot more.

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      He won’t.

      1. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        He’s my captain next weekend.

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Think I’m going Vardy but KDB vice.

  18. Original Pirate Material
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Bowen to Jota tonight?

    I do worry if he keeps his spot now Salah is back, what do we think?

    1. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I worry that also, but maybe they'll learn to play together. I don't rate Bowen too high in fpl terms, points are so split. And even if Salah is fit to play, there may be safety reasons after covid not to start him and Jota's form is incredible. So I guess I'll have both vs Brighton.

      1. Original Pirate Material
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Im not priced out for Jota so im tempted to hold until nearer the weekend, I guess that would be the sensible thing to do!

    Zlatan scores another Brace tonight for Milan keeping them top

    If judged on the last decades worth, surely Zlatan comes behind Messi and Ronaldo?

      Great score. If Jimenez scores a hattrick I might beat you.

    If Bruno rises tonight I’ll be able to swap him back to Salah!! Hmm

    1. Tony Martial
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Don’t you dare !

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA

        Haha, why not! Salah(C) 🙂

      I was so close to getting rid of him before the Everton game and when he hauled I promised myself to have him as a season keeper. Don’t get rid

  22. Werner Bros
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Werner to Vardy tonight still the right move?

    Martinez / Forster
    Chilwell Cancelo Coufal / Neco Lamptey
    KDB Bruno Grealish Zaha / Riedewald
    DCL Werner Watkins

    1FT

    1. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I'd do it

  23. Bennyboy1907
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Best defender under 4.8mil? For long term to rotate with Lamptey

      1. Catastrophe
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Coufal or Vestergaard? Not sure how well they rotate but they seem good options?

      2. Bennyboy1907
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Yes was thinking coufal

      3. HMC

        Team linked
        Leaning towards Son to Kdb. Do we have enough confidence to captain him?
        Can do Kane to Vardy as well but is it only worth it if captaining Vardy?
        Tempted by Foden to Jota and also Jimenez out but that can wait a week

      4. Kalou
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Providing Salah is cleared to play this week, who will you captain?

        A. Salah
        B. Bruno
        C. Kdb
        D. Other

        1. Catastrophe
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          KDB or Vardy

        2. Tony Martial
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          A if i get him back

          I doubt I will C Salah unless Klopp says that he starts. Klopp's earlier comments about covid makes me think that if there is even 1% health risk Jota starts. It is only Brighton and they could have won today 6-0. Also Salah has probably not trained all the time due to mild symptoms, so there is a reason to ease him in.

            I think he’ll start and get 65..

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Fulham defence is there for the taking..

      5. Catastrophe
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Kane, Zouma & Bissouma -> Salah, Coufal & Brewster over next 3 GWs for the below?

        Martinez
        Chilwell, Coufal, Justin
        Salah, KDB, Son, Fernandes, Ziyech
        DCL, Bamford

        (Steer, Kilman, Brewster, Mitchell)

        Will likely get Vardy in just for FUL and shu too.

        Cheers

        Martinez

        Bruno, Son, James, Grealish
        Kane, Werner, DCL

        Forster, Ferguson, James, Amartey

          1 month, 27 days ago

        2. ballsy_b
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Not essential. But you’d want him for gameweek 12.

          1. Tony Martial
            • 2 Years

        Looking to attack the next few game weeks. Languishing 40 points from top spot in my ML.

        Current midfield:
        Grealish - Ziyech - Mane - KDB - Fernandes

        Looking to do these transfers for next game week for a -4.
        Mane to Sterling
        Grealish to Jota.

        Gameweek 12:
        Will swap Sterling for Salah.

        Think that’s the way to go.

        (Have Forward line- DCL - Watkins - Brewster). .

          If you take away "how" from your sentence, you will get your answer.
