Spurs switch to back five for Sheffield United game

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers will be hoping Jose Mourinho’s switch to a back five will provide a boost to Tottenham Hotspur’s well-owned attacking assets.

Deadly duo Harry Kane (£11.1m) and Son Heungmin (£9.7m) line up with a returning Steve Bergwijn (£7.0m) in attack for their game against Sheffield United in Double Gameweek 19.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£4.8m) and Tanguy Ndombele (£5.9m) are selected in centre midfield.

Providing width to their side will be wing-backs Sergio Reguilon (£5.7m) and Serge Aurier (£5.2m).

Joe Rodon (£5.0m) is back in the heart of their defence with Ben Davies (£4.6m), along with stalwart Eric Dier (£5.1m).

French international Hugo Lloris (£5.6m) continues in goal, having started every game of the Premier League season so far.

Chris Wilder will be hoping his Blades side can build on their first win of the season against Newcastle with another impressive performance.

Out-of-position forward Oliver Burke (£4.4m) starts up- front with top-six slayer David McGoldrick (£5.2m).

There are no changes in midfield, with John Fleck (£5.6m), John Lundstram (£4.9m) and Oliver Norwood (£4.6m) occupying the three spots.

The impressive Jayden Bogle (£4.3m) continues at right wing-back, with Enda Stevens (£5.0m) returning on the left,

Chelsea loanee Ethan Ampadu (£4.3m) who picked up maximum Bonus Points in their last game, is alongside Chris Basham (£4.6m) and John Egan (£4.7m) at centre-half.

Aaron Ramsdale (£4.6m) keeps his place in goal.

Sheff Utd XI: Ramsdale; Basham, Egan, Ampadu, Bogle, Stevens; Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck; McGoldrick, Burke

Spurs XI: Lloris; Aurier, Rodon, Dier, Davies, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Bergwijn, Son; Kane

    Kane and Son to cement this season for the casuals who kept them.

      Is a non-casual someone who comes on here and copies the experts then?

      1. Dirty Leeds
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Bit off topic, but you gotta love all those self proclaimed experts on Twitter acting like some sort of oracle

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 13 days ago

          This!

          Trying to monetise the fpl family and be a personality in a fantasy game where the basis is making your own decisions!!

          1. Dirty Leeds
            • 4 Years
            8 months, 13 days ago

            Oh yes. And talking about FPL family all that hustle with that Lee guy... hilarious. The bloke knows nothing about football yet people take his advice and even pay for it...

            1. AC/DC AFC
              • 6 Years
              8 months, 13 days ago

              I think they have 19 paetron subscribers to be fair... But!!

                Yeh fair enough. Cheers mate

          Not only on twitter.....a few on here as well lol

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        It's a lazy narrative but one he obsesses about

      3. Brosstan
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        No, those are known as filthy spoon fed casuals

    2. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      I kept Son and Kane. I’m most definitely not a casual.

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Check again then

    3. Nimby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Why is it casual to keep the two highest scoring players in the game for a fixture against sheff utd you plum?

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Because you’re a point chaser!

        1. Nimby
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 13 days ago

          Aren't we all chasing points?

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 13 days ago

            Chasing past points is different to chasing future points. Spurs are in the past

            1. Nimby
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 13 days ago

              Everything is in the past.

            2. Nimby
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 13 days ago

              Are spurs still in the past or does the game on at the moment count?

        2. Sterling Malory
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 13 days ago

          Can't chase points you've already got.

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 6 Years
            8 months, 13 days ago

            Turning philosophical

    4. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      whats wrong with being casual anyway ???

      1. Brosstan
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        There's nothing wrong with it but people might as well admit this is a game catering to casuals these days and there's no skill or logic involved in doing well.

        1. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 13 days ago

          Unfortunately I agree, no point in watching all the games and doing research anymore, just go online an hour before deadline and it's all spoon fed to you after that it's just luck however I do think in general I finish higher than most if not all casuals.

          1. Nimby
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 13 days ago

            If that's truly what you think why do you bother playing?

      2. Nimby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Exactly. It's clearly used as a pejorative but I don't even know exactly what it means.

    5. GROBARI
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Only casuals are people who are calling people casuals for no reason. See you after the game. I kept Son

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Nice!!

        Me too.

        With 7 million players every combo is covered. Got to deal with it.

      2. Brosstan
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Wrong, the casuals are those who get offended by being called out. You just outed yourself mate.

    2. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      For how long will he last this time.. Ughh. Him and Fab playing together Liverpool would be in very good title position. Because they form the next best cb partnership in the league. Behind Dijk and Gomez

  5. Rupert The Horse

    Looks like Jose’s popped round my house. 😆

  6. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Ramsdale masterclass incoming

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      When was the last time he did a masterclass? 😛

  7. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 13 days ago

    my plan was to bring vardy in the couple of gws but not so sure now. could barnes or maddison offer a nice alternative? thanks

    1. swobe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Think Maddison is the pick.

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Barnes is a trap. Maddi could be a good shout

    3. Bookkeeper
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Barnes, not shot shy and cheaper of the two

    4. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      How can you fit Maddi into your midfield though, Justin from Leicester for me

    5. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      thanks all

    So Targett sold himself & Grealish from his fantasy team this week. Read into that what you will!

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      I wouldn't worry, Matt Targett is a. Filthy casual.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        (Although he did bring in Tielemans so fair play!)

        1. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 13 days ago

          That is proper casual

    2. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Haha that's hilarious, surely they miss out if true, I own Grealish

    3. swobe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Targett upgraded himself to Robbo whereas Hourihane kept Grealish and Martinez. Reckon Grealish owners are fine.

    4. Captain Vantastic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Hourahane kept Grealish while Tom Heaton captained him. Means nothing.

    5. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Who did he sell them for though? Cancelo and KDB?

    6. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      These so called professional footballers are the biggest casuals of them all

    7. FPLHaggis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Selling himself is the worst part of this.

  9. Amey
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 13 days ago

    Come on you blades !!

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Noooooo first time I've ever cheered on a Mourinho team

      1. Amey

        Ha ha

  10. The Big Fella
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 13 days ago

    Did any strongman and/or boxing fans watch Thor vs Ward? What do you think? Watched it last night and I thought Thor did well given the fact he was up against a pro, it was his first fight and he has been training less than 6 months

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 13 days ago

      No one follows strong man except other lifters bud

      1. The Big Fella
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        But the Eddie Hall and Thor fight is quite well known, even amongst those who don't lift/follow strongman. Plus boxing fans know about it.

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 13 days ago

          True, hope Eddie knocks him out, I think Thor is a little arrogant

          1. The Big Fella
            • 5 Years
            8 months, 13 days ago

            I think they both are but Thor is a cry baby who throws his toys out of the pram when he loses at WSM (viking press in 2017 against Eddie and again against Brian Shaw) plus was involved in a few cases of domestic violence with some of his ex's but sued people so they couldn't publish it

  11. Sterling Malory
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 13 days ago

    Sheffield United fan, needing Son points... I'll take 2 - 3 :')

    Not really be watching games since they’ve started to be played behind closed doors. Those watching the games have you noticed a general change (reduction) in tempo when there’s no crowd?

    1. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Pretty much the same imo

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Nope
      If anything few teams are playing better IMO.
      Like Southampton Everton.

      City domination of games has gone to another level. They just shut the shop completely

    3. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Not when Leeds Southampton and Pool play but yeah I'd say there definitely was a reduction to start with but not anymore

    4. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      The best thing is there are people who actually think keeping the highest scoring midfielder in the game for a tie against the worst team in Premier League history is a casual move.
