All eyes on Kane and Son as Fulham visit Spurs

All eyes will be on Son Heung-Min (£9.8m) and Harry Kane (£11.1m) as the two well-owned Spurs attackers aim to put Fulham to the sword in Blank Gameweek 18.

Joining the pair in attack will be Moussa Sissoko (£4.9m) playing in a more advanced position. Harry Winks (£5.2m) retains his place in a midfield three, with Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (£4.9m) and Tanguy Ndombele (£5.9m) .

Sergio Reguilon (£5.7m) makes his Premier League return, with Serge Aurier (£5.2m) on the opposite side of the defence.

Eric Dier (£5.1m) and Davinson Sanchez (£5.2m) partner in central defence, with France international Hugo Lloris (£5.6m) in goal.

Scott Parker, who was furious at the game being moved with so little notice, has made several changes to his line-up.

Out-of-position Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.4m) continues in a false nine role for Fulham, supported by Bobby Decordova-Reid (£5.3m).

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.9m), Harrison Reed (£4.4m), and Andre-Frank Anguissa (£4.5m) make up a midfield three for the Cottagers.

Kenny Tete (£4.3m) and Antonee Robinson (£4.4m) line up at wing-back, with Ola Aina (£4.4m), Tosin Adarabioyo (£4.5m) and Joachim Andersen (£4.5m) in central defence.

Alphonse Areola (£4.5m) keeps his place in goal.

Spurs XI: Lloris; Aurier, Dier, Sanchez, Reguilon; Sissoko, Hojbjerg, Winks, Ndombele; Son Kane

Fulham XI: Areola; Tete, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Aina, Robinson; Loftus-Cheek, Reed, Anguissa; Cavaleiro, Decordova-Reid

    KDB(c) & Sterling in my team - 13 points gone in one wild swing of Sterling’s boot

    1. Captain_Shirokov
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      Probably actually 19 points gone.

    2. ChelseaGuy
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      If KDB had taken it, it was an 18 point swing

      1. Olson
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        Sterling the fall guy here for KdB being an absolute fraud at 11.8m. This guy isn't even matching Marcus fracking Rashford

    3. Rasping Drive

      Yup, same here. Out of the cup, as well, barring a miracle of Sterling scoring a penalty proportions

      Am in the same boat. That's another level #@*%#@#, right there!!

    I don't own Sterling but that's ridiculous. He's one of the least technically gifted players at this level. He's probably the last City player you'd pick to take one, including the keeper. Madness.

    Well that was incredible. As a KDB (C) it was so laughable as i can't believe what I just saw.

    This is the most frustrating thing I've watched all season

    1. JIMMY764
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      this

  5. Bubz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 13 hours ago

    Pep is surely going to be absolutely fuming at that? No way could it have been agreed that Sterling is on penalties

    1. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      He was probably behind the whole thing.

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 13 hours ago

        No way, this was KDB allowing that Muppet to take It!

    2. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      Sterling never taking a pen again and KdB off pens as punishment.

  6. JIMMY764

    Even as a double city def owner, I wish they conceded after that penalty fiasco. Deserved to. What was all that about? Anyone have any idea why Raz took it?

    I honestly wouldn’t have brought Sterling if I hadn’t seen this article. I got suckered.

    1. DeadStar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      I should add I do get some good advice from this site too 🙂

  8. All The Aces

    Just used my entire repertoire of awful words at Sterling there and I'm proud of it!

  9. Das Boot
    • 6 Years

    C'mon Son. Lets do this 2 goals and an assist will be just fine

  10. MOZIL

    KDB doesnt seem like to be a good captain choice, he only scored 3 goals this season and he rarely hauls

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      It’ll dawn on the rest of us eventually, maybe not in time for my TC KDB in 19 though unfortunately

  11. Lindelol

    any chance Cancelo get 1 bonus?

    1. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Doesn't look like it.

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      No as I own him

  12. wulfrunian

    Sterling....

  13. fusen
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 13 hours ago

    I have KDB captain but also own Sterling.

    That was literally the worst case scenario.

    My captain loses and my differential loses

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      Same position. Honestly can't recall a season in which my luck has been this bad. Haven't had one rub of the green moment.

  14. Sim Simma 🤷 🔑 🚘
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Just logging in. Why didn't KDB take the penalty ?

    1. JBG
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      Cause Sterling didn't let him talk.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      No idea. I guess to give Sterling confidence?

    3. Bregg Zit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      Because Sterling did

    4. Big Ronnie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      To get his assists up is the only reason I can think of.

  15. Towsor44
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 13 hours ago

    Lol, I had to free hit so took out Sterling for KDB and put Foden in to!

  16. Original Pirate Material
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 13 hours ago

    Who would have got the assist?

    1. Greek Shamrocks
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      KDB

    2. DAZZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      Kdb

    3. Towsor44
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      KDB

    4. JOELIO8701
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Kdb

  17. Chris_H
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 13 hours ago

    Presumably us Sterling cappers should be celebrating depriving KDB cappers of an extra 16 points despite losing 4 points...

    Every cloud!

    1. Nice to Finally Michu
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      EO suggests otherwise but ill take what I can get I suppose 😐

  18. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 13 hours ago

    I’ve owned KDB for 7 of the last 8 weeks and the game I didn’t own him was against Chelsea when he was actually clinical. Doing my head in

  19. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 hours ago

    Kick Sterling out the team for that.

    Would like to say it cements KDB on pens now but that should’ve been the case before.

    Stupid

  20. Greek Shamrocks
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 13 hours ago

    Let's go KANE (C)!!!!!!!

    1. Towsor44
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      +1!

  21. umerlfc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 hours ago

    This FH is an absoulte waste if Kane & Son haul and Arsenal play a 0-0 with Palace

    1. JBG
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      Not for me... That would be great actually, might push me in to top 10k.

    At what point do we get any enjoyment this season?

    Thanks

        I enjoy picking a team and listening to the pods and reading on here but actually hate the games now haha

  24. Don Van Vliet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 13 hours ago

    Raheem costing De Bruyne captainers 10-12 points with that woeful penalty.

  25. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 hours ago

    Just checked in after an hour. Who decided Raz is on pens?

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

      My rival with Kane(c)

  26. ZeBestee

    3 months, 13 hours ago

    I have NEVER rated Sterling, and never will I. He just lacks that footballing brain. That CL miss last season was the lowest of the lows, and I expect another one in the near future after what happened today.

    1. Nice to Finally Michu
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 hours ago

      🙄 Not the age old "lacks that footballing brain" trope assigned to black players

      1. ZeBestee
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        Well am from Africa, and that has nothing to do with color. He just isn't good enough. I will never say that about Mane for instance. Cheers

        1. Nice to Finally Michu
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 12 hours ago

          Fair enough mate its just an attack on character I hear too often and in Sterling's case I disagree I don't think his limitations are cerebral but more about his technical ability. He's great at finding and interpreting space imo just poor at beating his man and inconsistent as a finisher

          1. ZeBestee
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 12 hours ago

            He misses by far the easiest chances I have seen in a team as good as City. I know he isn't good at finishing, but some of his decision making aren't great. I like him as a person of course even though am not a City fan.

      Same.

    2. Lazaretti

      After Saints Leeds postponement might use it now on GW19.

    As a KDB capper you just have to laugh

    That whole fiasco was so 2020 vibes
