Kane and Son proving difficult to sell ahead of Double Gameweek 19

SPURS 3-0 LEEDS

  • Goals: Harry Kane (£11.0m), Son Heung-min (£9.7m), Toby Alderweireld (£5.4m)
  • Assists: Steven Bergwijn (£7.0m), Kane, Son
  • Bonus points: Kane x3, Son x2, Alderweireld

It may be a new year but the lethal Harry Kane (£11.0m)and Son Heung-min (£9.7m)combination once again proved devastating, as Tottenham beat Leeds 3-0 to end a four-game winless streak.

By linking up for Spurs’ second of the afternoon, their goal-assist partnership has reached a tally of 13 – already the joint most fruitful Premier League duo in a single campaign and by only their 16th game.

New father Kane scored a penalty after 29 minutes when Steven Bergwijn was fouled by Ezgjan Alioski (£4.5m) around the 18-yard line. Then, minutes after both going down with knocks, Kane and Son began 2021 like they ended 2020.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£4.9m) won possession in midfield and gave the ball to Kane. The striker then clipped in a cross that was met at the near-post by Son, converting past Illan Meslier (£4.6m) for his 100th Tottenham goal.

“The players understood how to close the door to the danger and how to explore some fragilities in the way they play that can be exposed. I don’t say a very good performance, I say a good performance and very important three points.” – Jose Mourinho

KANE AND SON: STILL IN BUSINESS

The recent form of both had coincided with Spurs’ poor December, as Son and Kane blanked in the previous two and three games respectively.

It may have also concerned FPL managers that both had been heavily out-performing their season’s expected goal involvement (xGI) numbers. Additionally, the South Korean international’s six goal attempts from the last five Gameweeks had been bettered by the likes of Rodri (£5.4m), Luka Milivojevic (£5.6m) and Conor Gallagher (£5.5m).

Yet here, albeit against a Leeds side that promises goals at both ends, the two had several promising opportunities. Early on, the two combined down the left-hand side, where the ball ricocheted back to Kane and a left-footed shot that sailed over the bar.

In the second half, Son cut inside from the left in plenty of space but hesitated to the point of not even shooting. He later set up a big Bergwijn chance where the right-footed shot was saved by Meslier, followed five minutes later by another save that denied Kane from a tight angle.

Both Son and Kane were popular Gameweek 17 captaincy choices for a reason. Kane is now in double-figures for both goals and assists, with Son notching his seventh double-digit haul of the campaign. 

They also take part in one of the five Gameweek 18 matches and, although they only play once in the following week of doubles, it is away to bottom side Sheffield United. When devising a chip strategy, getting rid of these whilst blindly chasing those with two matches might prove hasty.

REGUILON MISSES OUT

Jose Mourinho had never faced Leeds before but, because Wednesday’s match against Fulham was postponed due to positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test results, his players entered proceedings with a six day rest since conceding the late equaliser against Wolves.

Two changes were made to the side, including Sergio Reguilon (£5.7m) being named as a substitute and missing out on a clean sheet – Spurs’ first since the four of Gameweeks 8 to 11. 

Toby Alderweireld was the other change and he didn’t miss out on it, also nodding home the third goal from a Son corner. Matt Doherty (£5.7m), sent off in stoppage time after picking up his second yellow card, brought in just three points. He will miss the EFL Cup semi-final against Brentford.

“We suffered a goal from a set-piece and in the game we created 10 chances but didn’t score any goals, our opponents created 12 but scored three. For me the fundamental difference was the efficiency and the fact their offensive game came about through errors we could have avoided.” – Marcelo Bielsa

BOX OFFICE LEEDS

Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m), however, will be absent for Leeds’ next league match after being booked for the fifth time this season. That will be the first of their two Double Gameweek 19 fixtures, arguably denting the appeal of assets in all departments for the bumper round of fixtures.

This will, of course, be a blow to Marcelo Bielsa too, after managing to name a virtually-unchanged side on the past six occasions – only replacing the injured Liam Cooper (£4.3m) with Pascal Struijk (£3.9m) three games ago.

Leeds side weren’t deterred by the third goal, controlling the rest of the match in the same positive way they started it. Left-back Alioski found himself in the penalty area after just four minutes, as his shot hit the side netting. On the other flank, popular pick Stuart Dallas (£4.8m) was constantly getting into the box from the other side.

“In the second half, of the second half, we started to dominate again. We had a good offensive production.” – Marcelo Bielsa

ENTICING DOUBLE GAMEWEEK 19

Despite Phillips’ absence from the Brighton match, Dallas is still highly appealing ahead of facing the Seagulls and Southampton in the Double Gameweek. 

The Northern Ireland international produced a 12-point haul at West Brom and only Kurt Zouma (£5.8m) has scored more than his three goals in 2020/21.

Wildcard and Free Hit managers will also be looking at cheap winger Raphinha (£5.5m). He had the most shots of all midfielders in the preceding six matches and is always looking to get involved. In the first half, his left-footed in-swinger cross found Patrick Bamford (£6.6m), whose header went over the bar.

Bamford looked bright in the first half. Owned by 49.3% of FPL managers, he is the game’s standout cheap striker, whose ten goals and five assists make him the third highest-scoring FPL striker.

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Doherty, Alderweireld, Dier, Davies; Hojbjerg, Winks (Sissoko 76’), Ndombele (Lucas Moura 78’), Bergwijn, Kane (Vinicius 87’), Son.

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Dallas, Ayling, Struijk, Alioski (Shackleton 64’); Phillips; Raphinha, Klich, Rodrigo (Hernandez 65’), Harrison (Poveda 61’); Bamford.

    Play up Pompey.

    75 with 3 to go, nice to get a green arrow again!

      Looking good, what 3?

      1. Black Knights
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        McCarthy (Martinez 3 if he’s seriously isolating), Dias (Coufal 6 if the game is off) and Salah.

        Think 100 is out of reach but 90 may not be.

          Why might the City game be off? Haven't heard anything about that

          1. Black Knights
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            They had a 6th positive last night and are getting more results today. I’m not sure if it will be but Coufal is there if Dias has it anyway.

            Think we’ll find out soon what’s going on with that game.

      75 with 3 to go too! Feels good.

      McCarthy Stones Salah

      1. Black Knights
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        I’d had 5 red arrows out of 6 and went from 34k to 102k.

        But my players kept believing in the philosophy, the board gave me time, and it’s turning around!

  2. liverpool01

    Any news on Lindelof injury?

    Have 2FT

    Was thinking Coufal to Lindelof or Shaw, will Fh Gw 19.

    1. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Telles and Shaw will share minutes.

      AWB or Maguire are the safest options. Bailly too (but his injury record speaks for itself)

      1. liverpool01
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Yeh Bailey is too injury prone risky going with him.

        1. Make United Great Again
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Lindelof is apparently a long term injury btw. Stay clear

          1. liverpool01
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Cool thanks

    2. Fit of Pique
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Hardcore United fan here.

      Maguire will play every minute of every game, league and cup.

      AWB will play 90 most weeks but may have the occasional benching.

      Shaw and Telles will share minutes. Stay away IMO

      Bailly an injury risk and a rotation risk of Lindelof comes back.

      So Maguire the only safe defensive option at United. I have him. I need another 6m denfder though and I'm thinking Stones (have Cancelo)

      1. liverpool01
        • 2 Years

        Thanks man

      0.ITB, 1FT

      Martinez
      Stones Dier

    • Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years

      "New father Kane scored a penalty after 29 minutes"

      Did FFS just assume Kane's gender!!?? Maybe Kane identifies as a woman!

      Gtg?? Not sure who to capt though. Perhaps kdb

      1. fcsaltyballs

        Looks good, KDB captain could work well

        1. Gun gun

          Lets see how the game vs chelsea went first then

    • Ha.
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Thought I could rely on Bissouma for BGW and then he goes and does that.

      Martinez
      Dier, Holding, Stones
      Son, Fernandes (c), Grealish
      Kane, DCL, Watkins

      Good enough?

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Looks good to me. Can’t squeeze in a city mid? Think I might have kdb and sterling

        1. Ha.

        10 isn’t enough. FH immediately

    • Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Anyone else gone from FH in 18 and BB in 19 to now not even using a chip? I can get 9 out for 18 and full 11 dgwers for 19 without a hit so think I’ll save them.

      Am I right in saying 26 and 29 will be another big double/blank gw?

      1. TorresMagic™

          You saving your chips TM? You’ve had a decent rank climb the last few weeks, nicely done

      2. Top Dog
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        I still could go either way, and also have option of WC and BB, but I think my preferred option is to go without using chips

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Thanks. That’s how I’m viewing it as well just now. Keeping options open but at think saving chips is looking best move

      3. Sanchit

        Yes

    • balint84

      What do you think of these moves.

      Salah + Soucek > KDB/Sterling + Saka (-4) GW18 blanks

      KDB/Sterling + Saka + Kane > Salah + Soucek + Vardy (-8) GW19 Doubles

      Few hits but could work out?

      Will lose 0.3 tv

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Can see why you’d shuffle the big hitters. But you’re getting Saka for -8 for one game? Just do salah Hokey Cokey and get Vardy for -4

        1. Quan MisTaka
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Yeah just had another look at it too. Id need saka to score 8+ to justify it. Not worth it eh.

          Salah hokey cokey it is.

          Cheers pal

      Was very tempted to WC out of Kane and Son, less so after that display. I can't help but feel, though, that Leeds were the absolute perfect fixture for them. When they start facing parked buses again, my confidence in them will be exceptionally low. Wouldn't be surprised at 4 points from them vs Villa, for example.

          If I want to WC I'll have to make the call now 😆

          Really wish the game against Fulham had gone through, that would have been perfect to assess where Spurs are at right now.

        Villa don’t sit back either though? Not an awful fixture for them either

        Agree

        So many options this season but son and Kane just keeps getting points. They won’t score every week but I think having at least one of them makes sense...they also have that Fulham game to rearrange

        I am moving Kane out for Vardy in 19 for sure.

        I’m moving them both out this week, probably bite me in the arse but I need the value for other players for GW18 & 19. Against Leeds who play so open I don’t think they created enough. Kane wouldn’t haul without being on pens can’t remember him having another shot on target and Son was clinical with his main chance he had, his movement was great but he doesn’t look as good as he did earlier in the season. I don’t expect them to do as well against Villa the Sheff UTD fixture worries me more but Spurs haven’t been on great goal scoring form recently.

      Morning all,

      Im currently sitting on 7 players for next week
      Thinking of bring in KDB for Salah and Dias in for Taylor for a -4
      That would give me 9 players

      Then Bring back Salah for KDB as i dont think KDB will play 3 games in a short turn around

      Is the -4 worth it?

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Yep

      2. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…

        Yes

          But if you have £0m ITB and bought Salah @£12.4m, would you be unable to buy him back in GW 19?

          1. Red Red Robins
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 29 days ago

            0.1 in bank mate, so hopefully ok - if not do another -4 so my teams back to normal.

            1. Booked4Dissent
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Yeah you would need -4 then if only have 0.1m ITB and bought @12.4m

    • NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1

      Repost.
      What's your latest GW 18 and 19 plans? Mine is

      18: Salah to KDB
      19: KDB to Salah, or Son to Salah & DCL to Decordova-Reid (-4). TC potentially

    • Gun gun

      Can i check if you got 7 plAyers for gw18,

      Will u fh?

      Martinez
      Stones saiss
      Bruno mahrez
      Kane dcl

      Seems like mine need an FH right? Mahrez and stones especially if they start vs chelsea. Then they might nt start for gw18?

      1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
        • 2 Years

        I would FH that team

      As a Salah non owner I really hope he starts. Killed it when subbed in then blanks next 2 when he starts.

        Think I’m saving it now. Plan is wc 25, BB 26 and FH 29 if those are the big doubles/blanks

      What would you advise for my team?

      (McCarthy, Forster)
      Targett Dier Cancelo, Mitchel (coufal)
      Son KDB Bruno (Salah Soucek)
      DCL Watkins (Bamford)

        Well set up. Looks great, maybe salah to sterling and get salah back in 19?

      How many double game week players are you looking to have for GW19?

      1. Captain_Shirokov
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        13 minimum

        1. Make United Great Again
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Decent. I’m looking at 10 players at the moment.

      2. The Train Driver
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        9 + 2 Spurs. 11 if playing BB but probably won't, feels safer to play TC now.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Also, will have 11 bgw players and will only do - 4 for both teams.

          1. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years

              S = single
              D = double
              B = blank

      3. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
        • 2 Years

        Currently have 12 DGW players + son, Kane and holding. Might shift Kane to Vardy in 19.

      4. MoSalad
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        15 is my plan, how many minutes they all get who knows.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Got 12 but it includes balbeuna, foden, rjames. With a transfer needed for playing keeper and brewster I think my chances of a BB has gone.
        Chilwell to taylor really screwed me over as a complete waste of two FTs

      Salah to Son/Rashford worth it for one week?

      Will lose 0.1m on Salah but have a feeling he might drop anyway. Will have 9 players then. Thoughts?

      1. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Maybe Salah to KDB

        1. Captain_Shirokov
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Have him

      2. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        I’d probably go sterling or kdb if you only have one of those guys? Rashford could get 12points or 2 and villa might be tricky for son but expect he’ll still do well

        1. Captain_Shirokov
          • 2 Years

      1. Zim0

        I hope he starts in 18. I got him too.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Just worried that after 2 consecutive starts in which he played really well he was dropped altogether, not even bench appearance when that waste of space Willian was preffered ahead of him.

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Yeah same

    • Flair

      Tiniest of margins denying that Dier goal, how irritating. Definitely would have preferred that over the Son assist

    • The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Can get this team for sgw 18 and dgw 19 BB and just - 4. Looks good?

      SGW18 Martinez
      Mitchell Dias Holding Dier
      Bruno KDB Grealish Son
      Watkins Kane

      DGW19
      Martinez x2 Johnstone x2 Cresswell x2 Dias x2 Holding Dier Robertson x2 Bruno x2 KDB x2 Son Grealish x2 Anguissa x2
      Watkins x2 Bamford x2 Cavani x2

      No Salah but it opens up for so much more and keeping my chips/not doing more minus.

      Probably playing TC because of all the uncertainties even though I think I have a decent squad for a bench boost.

      Will save FH, WC and BB for next bgw+dgw.

      1. MoSalad
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Can’t see Cavani starting both and then depends if Grealish gets a YC for 1 game suspension. Could downgrade Cavani and change Grealish to Rashford maybe?

      2. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Looks good plan but i think salah is best captain for 19 so if using TC I’d want him in there

    • FALSE PROFIT

      Leno
      Cancelo Dias Sais
      Saka KDB Rashford Son Bruno
      Wilson Kane
      Sub Holding Mitchel Brewster

      Is it worth a better bench considering possible postponements?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
