Werner, Son and Kane kept quiet as FPL’s two best defences impress again

Chelsea 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur

  • Bonus Points: Hugo Lloris (£5.5m) x3, Ben Chilwell (£6.1m) x2, Reece James (£5.1m) x1

If Premier League title crusades are built on the foundations of a rock-solid defence, then the dark horses of Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur underscored their credentials in a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Owners of the attacking assets on show were forced to swallow rare blanks as the two backlines came out on top in a match that had little goalmouth action but plenty to dissect.

Frank Lampard summarised the game and the tentative approaches of the two managers perfectly:

It’s difficult to play against Tottenham when they defend in a low, central block. You have to try and go round them, and it’s not easy whilst making sure you don’t allow counter-attacking transition.

SITTING ON DEFENCE

Of the eight Gameweek 10 fixtures to be contested so far, this one had the fewest number of efforts on target (four) and the lowest expected goals (xG) total.

Edouard Mendy (£5.1m) was only extended once by a Serge Aurier (£5.2m) shot, while Hugo Lloris (£5.6m) collected maximum bonus points with the minimum of fuss, with just one of his three saves, from a long-distance Mason Mount (£6.8m) effort, causing him much concern.

Harry Kane (£10.9m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) failed to register a shot in the box between them, while Timo Werner‘s (£9.5m) only chance of note was flagged for offside.

But rather than bemoan the blanks of the attackers, let’s celebrate the achievements of the respective backlines.

They are, quite simply, the two best defences in the Premier League on current form: Chelsea with the most clean sheets (five), Spurs with the fewest goals conceded (nine).

The improvements on last season, when both defences were ropey to say the least, is marked.

For Chelsea, it’s been about savvy investment in defence, the acquisition of a competent goalkeeper and, latterly, the deployment of a system that gets the best out of N’Golo Kante (£4.9m).

As for Spurs, they too have benefitted from summer transfer activity in the form of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£4.9m) and Sergio Reguilon (£5.6m).

But 80% of their five-strong backline (including Lloris) in the win over Manchester City last weekend were here in 2019/20 and it’s perhaps more that we’re starting to see the fruits of Mourinho’s labour after 12 months in charge, with the ‘Special One’ renowned for his second-season achievements.

While the two clubs’ upcoming schedules are far from straightforward, who’d back against another three to four clean sheets apiece in December?

RODON HIS LUCK

The one change to Spurs’ starting XI this week saw Joe Rodon (£5.0m) come in for the injured Toby Alderweireld (£5.4m) at centre-half.

A competent debut was almost marred by mistakes in either half and, as harsh as it sounds, there was little to suggest that the Belgian won’t make an immediate return alongside Eric Dier (£4.9m) when fit.

Mourinho said of Rodon’s full Premier League debut:

I’m very happy with Joe, very happy with the profile, and to be with my amazing coaching staff – Joao [Sacramento], Ledley [King], all these guys – coaching and teaching these guys, and working with Joe has been a pleasure.

I just feel sorry he can’t play in the Europa League because it would be a great level of experience for him, and I believe the biggest game he played before this one was Championship play-offs and a Wales national team match, so I’m very pleased that he could come here and for 90 minutes he made one mistake.

Dier made more mistakes than him, especially in ball possession, so I’m very happy with my team, very happy with my guys, very happy with this mentality – that we come to Stamford Bridge, we get a point, we are top of the league, and we are not happy.

REECE’S BPS

Ben Chilwell’s (£6.1m) superb run of FPL form continued, with the left-back picking up two bonus points to maintain his average of 8.0 points per match in a Chelsea shirt.

Reece James (£5.1m) also collected a bonus point, the fifth occasion that has happened in eight league starts for the young right-back.

No Fantasy defender has more bonus points than James (nine) this season.

KANE UNABLE

Given the nature of the fixtures of the last two Gameweeks, it’s perhaps no surprise that Spurs haven’t been the free-flowing attacking unit that we saw in September and October.

Kane and Son haven’t had a single shot in the box between them since before the November international break and the former was noticeably deep again at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The England striker’s underlying numbers had been dwindling slightly anyway (six shots in the six-yard box from Gameweeks 1-5, two thereafter), with perhaps the capitulation against West Ham marking a slight shift towards the conservative in Mourinho’s approach.

We weren’t expecting goal-fests from clashes with Manchester City and Chelsea and the acid test for the likes of Kane and Son will instead be in the next two Gameweeks, with Spurs up against two shot-shy sides that will no doubt prompt a different, front-foot approach from Mourinho and allow for a touch more expansive play.

Chelsea, similarly, will expect a far more open game against Leeds United next weekend, which should allow room for Werner and Hakim Ziyech (£8.3m), both of whom were stifled against Spurs.

Christian Pulisic (£8.2m) may be edging closer to a start in that match, having marked his return from injury with a 20-minute run-out against the Lilywhites on Sunday.


Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Mendy; James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell; Kovavic, Kante, Mount; Ziyech (Havertz 83), Abraham (Giroud 79), Werner (Pulisic 74).

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Aurier, Rodon, Dier, Reguilon; Sissoko, Hojbjerg; Son Heung-min (Moura 90), Ndombele (Lo Celso 65), Bergwijn (Davies 89); Kane;

    Martinez Forster
    Robbo Dallas Justin Lamptey Kilman
    KDB Bruno Ziyech Barkley Bissouma
    Kane DCL Maupay

    Looking for some advice lads, planned on saving FT this week in order to have 2 for next GW and get Salah (C) in v Fulham.

    Now I have flags on Barkley & Maupay and frankly Maupay is stinking up my team long enough.

    Just get rid and take a hit next week or stay the course? Thoughts?

    1. Saka_me_sideways
        1 month, 27 days ago

        In the same position.
        After a successful 8 point hit this week I’m thinking -4 to get Maupay out my team actually seems like a bargain.

        1. wasp3000
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Ya i could do Maupay out for a hit but really dont know where to go with it. Could upgrade Barkley to Jota but then Maupay would have to become Brewster who is just bench fodder anyway. I might just go with what i have this week and then with 2 FT i could always do a downgrade somewhere to upgrade Maupay but would prob mean going without salah for Fulham.

          1. Saka_me_sideways
              1 month, 27 days ago

              Yeah problem you have is bissouma is already bench fodder in your team so you’d be forced to play either him or Brewster every week!.. no ideal.
              Maybe Maupay > Watkins this week for free, then kane and Barkley > salah and someone next?

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

                Yup Kane downgrade seems to be the only way to fund Salah if i want to keep Bruno KDB. Saying that it might be worth ditching one for Salah when they face each other and Salah has Ful. Decisions Decisions.

                1. Saka_me_sideways
                    1 month, 27 days ago

                    Again, I was planning the same move of Bruno > Salah next week, but both Bruno and KDB look undroppable atm.
                    Ditched Kane this week myself, he’s playing too deep for my liking and the early form/stats seem to be tailing off.
                    Just my opinion though, good luck with whatever you go with.

          KDB to be rested against Fulham? It’s possible

            • 10 Years

            They've already qualified in the CL so will be rested tomorrow.

              This. Pep will play the reserves in the CL, like Sterling and Foden

            • 3 Years

            possible, but they can't afford to drop points and he is fundamental to everything they do, especially with Silva gone.

          6. TNB
              1 month, 27 days ago

              No chance.

              They need to gain momentum in the PL and get winning streak.

            Best move here? 3.8m ITB

            A Son -> KDB
            B Robbo/Podence -> Dallas/KDB
            C Ignore City and pray

            B means benching headache and prob no Salah for Fulham.

                Why not Watkins?

                Can't reach for Callum if I want Salah next week

              8,6,2,8,6 pts last 5 games. 5 BAPS. This is probably the minimum he could have got as well.

            Is the turd Ziyech -> Salah worth -4 this week?

              I liked Salahs reaction to being subbed. He wants goals. I dont rate Wolves that much this season in the sense that it will be too difficult for him to score

                Yea I thought the same.. Seems likely to get 90 against Wolves

            a) Rashford Robertson--- KDB Castagne/Chilwell (-4)

            Which attacking 8 structure do you prefer?

            Bench fodder a
            A) Mid
            B) Forward

              Salah, KDB, Bruno, Jota & Grealish are making me lean towards B

            2 FT (1,8£ ITB)

            Guys, what to do next with this slot? First thought was Bruno to Salah, but I wanna keep Bruno now. With the Cancelo I will at least watch the next Fulham game. Any tips? TY!

              Cancelo to Dias this week.

              Vardy & Ziyech to Salah & Wilson next week.

                Although on the other hand Cancelo to Dias is a little bit kneejerk in my opinion..

            My FanTeam squad is looking a bit stretched. Thoughts on what to do?

            Lloris Meslier
            Chilwell Zouma Cancelo Mina White
            Mane KdB Son Grealish Rodriguez
            DCL Watkins 4.0

            0.3m ITB.

            Thinking I roll this week? And then do something like Son + Rodriguez > Salah + Neto (5.3 mid...)

          18. the vanisher
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Rashford, Werner to KdB, Cavani (-4) ?
            (No Bruno in team)

            Yes or No?

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

              tough one
              If you can get bruno in later on without hits will be nice

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

              Yes, but I’d get a cheaper striker and reinvest the spare change elsewhere.

            3. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

              Monitor Cavani Instagram post first, and wait in case further action is taken

            Sold kane and son last week.
            I think its a good decision Spurs lacking creativity and they will fight for the CL spot and for the league.

                He plays too depp and all his 3 big hauls came in matches that were not usual.
                West ham 3 goals
                Man utd 6
                soton 5

                doesn't happen every day

              Have to admit Kane isnt looking that good FPL wise and upcoming fixtures will be a lot of the same from Mou

                  Hes much better than Firmino and is still on pens

                    He wont be as bad as bobby (fpl wise) but he wont be the essential that we all think

            Werner and Ziyech to Bamford and KDB

            Reasoning - Concerned about gametime for both of the above now Pulisic and Havertz are back fit

            Yeah or Nah?

              it doesnt feel like the week to rip chelsea out your team, i feel the leeds game is a match up for chels attack and could prove fruitful

            take the sterling benching on the chin, is it an easy save FT to then move with 2 frees to get Mo in next week

            McCarthy
            Dias Targett Chillwell
            Sterling KDB Grealish Ziyech
            DCL Bamford Vardy

            Forster Soucek Lewis Coufal

            To get Sterling to Mo i'll need two moves and a downgrade somewhere in the team, Ziyech to Jota, Vardy to Werner or Soucek to 4.4 fodder on my mind

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 3 Years

            Looking to get into the Chelsea back line late, as per usual.

            a) James (exciting but rotation risk)
            b) Chilwell (stop being stubborn)
            c) Zouma (meh but consistent)

              A. That price difference between him and Chilwell is significant and he's actually been beating Chilwell on BPs too. He got a really soft yellow card yesterday or he would get the 2 bonus. Not as much of a rotation risk as he appears while Chelsea continue being this good defensively.

                Also James is swaying me as I was front and centre for his 14 pointer in GW1

              Lots of appeal there for sure. Aguero looks like he's close to finished as a regular FPL asset. Will the next haul be Jesus's?

                Bruno is more essential than Salah long term imo. But Salah will destroy non owners in GW12

                  Probably not.
                  Who would you get in for DCL?
                  Who would you captain if no Salah?
