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

    Had city over 1.5 goals in a bet aswell as having KDB as my captain... even more pain!

    Having watched that game, KDB was absolute gash. More than anything else he just looked tired, lost possession a number of times, didn't make any threatening runs, had one good chance which was saved. Was pretty clear he wasn't in a proper state to take the penalty. Might even pass on him for GW19 as it'll be a 8pt hit or Salah out to get him.

      Best player on the pitch

      Ah you've answered my question below. Probably should have captained kane. Hindsight

    3. ZeBestee

      Kdb run very fast and got that pen, he wasnt tired or anything. Brighton played well.

    4. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      He had 3 good chances which were saved well, what are you on about? Is being tired running towards goal the way he did to get the penalty?

      Some of the crap talk on here honestly.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3 months, 3 days ago

        Does having 3 good chances have anything to do with him being tired? You ever even played football before? A run like that can come from just a burst of adrenaline, and the opportunity itself came from the fact that Dunk's header was crap, a player of KDB's quality sniffing out that opportunity isn't exactly anything to write home about. But sure, ignore all the instances before that when he was walking around, or losing the ball, the ball practically went under his foot at one point around the 80 minute mark ffs clear sign of fatigue. But ignore all that, sure.

          Man stop whining because your captain didn't haul, grow up. You clearly haven't played football if you're whining that much about a 'Fantasy GAME'. He played well today and if he takes that penalty has a 14 point haul and you aren't on here whinging. The end.

            Yes very classy. Hilarious how you're seemingly aware that this is a fantasy game yet the fact that you're on a forum for said fantasy game goes over your head. As you clearly have issues with basic comprehension let me spell it out for you - I stated my opinion on KDB's performance which I feel partially explains WHY my captain didn't haul and consider whether he will haul in the next GW. If that sounds like whining to you then you clearly don't hang around on here on matchdays very often. So if you're not interested in discussing a legitimate fantasy football-related topic then feel free to get lost, but don't try and pretend like you're any more mature than anyone else when you come on here with your antagonistic attitude for no reason

            1. Qaiss
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 3 days ago

              But he played well so you’re view is completely wrong. He played well. He created good chances and made the keeper make good saves. You’re just whining because he didn’t haul. If he takes that penalty, you aren’t on here writing a lecture about his performance being bad, when it was a good one.

                Wow. Does it give you pleasure to come onto a fantasy game forum and be a d*ck to people for no reason? Well each to their own I guess

                  You said have I ever even played football in my life before and wrote a lecture on him playing poor because he didn’t take a penalty over Sterling.

                  You’re the one who needs to reevaluate how they behave on a Fantasy Football forum.

      Your last sentence explains everything you said before it.

      1. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        That's a fair point. Might still do it though considering Palace is on Sunday evening. Not a decision for tonight anyway

    6. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      What.... he created and had like 4 big chances

    7. mojoindojo
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Not so long ago you wrote tripe

    8. 7shadesofsmoke
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      must've watched a different game to me then.

      No argument on what to do next GW but think you're misrepresenting Kev's performance this evening

      1. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        I thought it was quite clear Brighton were the better team in the second half. Just because City had a few really good chances doesn't mean this was a good performance but that's expected of them at home against a weaker team, and the same goes for Kevin. For sure he had his chances and played some really clever passes but for most of the game he was a spectator and got worse as the game progressed. Just because he won a penalty at the end doesn't change that for me.

  3. Bobby
    • 11 Years

    Was working so just seen score. I assume this was another 'potential haul' for kdb which never happened?

    1. Karhumies
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Google "Sterling penalty". Someone will definitely upload it out of rage.

    2. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Correct.
      Points imminent.
      KdB owners will have the last laugh I'm sure.

      1. 7shadesofsmoke
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        would take a Bowyer vs Dyer punch up and double red for Kane Son tonight for KDB owners to have the last laugh

  4. Guru Mediation
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Pat Nevin on 5 Live saying KDB was knackered. I'm guessing that's why he let Sterling take it

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      My thinking aswell

    2. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      KDB on one leg would still take a better penalty than that clown.

    3. 7shadesofsmoke
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      He made a 20 yard sprint to close down the keeper on a loose back pass with the side already a goal up in injury time, just to win the pen. He was fine.

      1. Guru Mediation
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        The sprint would have taken a lot of him. I think that confirms it tbh

        1. 7shadesofsmoke
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          lol

          1. Guru Mediation
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            🙂
            I'm only half joking. You always find energy to sprint on an attacking chance. Whereas standing over a penalty tired is a completely different thing all together

  5. Bury94
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    16 points if KDB scores the pen, infuriating

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      15+ point swing for me having KDB(c) and sterling

      1. 7shadesofsmoke
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        brutal

  6. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    At least 1 thing is for sure. KDB will take the next penalty.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      He could be Grealish 2.0

    2. Party time
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      He is just an expensive Grealish

    3. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      He took their last 3 penalties. Such a weird decision. Selfish Sterling.

    4. tambourineman
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      It must be Ederson's turn by now

  7. SH1M1
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    3 - Raheem Sterling is the first player to miss three consecutive Premier League penalties since Saido Berahino did so between April 2016-September 2017 ...

    1. MOZIL
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      horrible decision whoever let him took it in such crucial moment

    2. Pukki Party

      That's a name i had forgotten about

  8. All The Aces
    • 7 Years

    As hacked off as I am, that result was better than if De Bruyne had missed it which is what I immediately thought was gonna happen.

    Is Raphinha and Bamford ok to play even if they have only 1 GW? Worth a hit to get out Raphinha?

    1. Milkman Bruno

        Depends for who? I would keep.

          Maybe Gundo? He looked good today again

          1. Milkman Bruno
              3 months, 3 days ago

              Will Gundogan out score him by 4? If you think so then go for it.

      • Milkman Bruno
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Although I don’t care that Sterling got me -1, I’m now worried owning him for the dgw.

              Not having him?? Is that an option?

            • 2 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            Yeah that was my first thought. He looked tired.
            And an assist was probably extra 6points instead of 8 incl bonus.
            So I was already happy with that.

        • Make United Great Again
          • 8 Years

          Sterling has missed his last 3 penalties.

          A) Mane -> KDB
          B) Keep Mane

          Was all set on A but after tonight's game I'm not sure if its a good idea? Might as well keep Mane.

              Keep Mane.

              I'm probably making that move capping KDB. Pool vs United could be an edgy affair.

              I had a WEDGE on man city to beat Brighton - 1 goal. Sterling i hate you.

              Cant get a captain right. That's 13 fails for the season with KDB

                Whilst it's a disappointing total it's not really a captain fail is it?

                  Obviously its a fail when KAne and Son are hauling right now.

              Not even mad that Sterling took it as kdb(c).
              But just sooo frustrated that he missed 😀

              Why o why sterling. Id had more faith in Zinchenko even.

              Very happy with my Stones Dias and KDB points.
              Now it’s time forKane(C) Son and Dier to explode

              Last time this season I’m going by the C poll, every time I do I get shafted!

              Was on Son C, so those that have him are due a haul 🙁

              Sterling has missed his last 3 penalties for City now. 😆

                He's world class apparently

                3 - Raheem Sterling is the first player to miss three consecutive Premier League penalties since Saido Berahino did so between April 2016-September 2017. Wayward. #MCIBHA

              Why did we get lured into bringing in KDB? So inconsistent with FPL points this season

              If Dier gives a CS that will be my 5th CS of this GW. (DDG, Stones, AWB, Cancelo)
