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

      WTF was that?
      My goodness! What a goal!

      Ok wow. Was it a cross though?

        No he knew what he was doing there.

        Yep no way that’s intentional. Just kicks out

        1. Neevesy

          Not a chance. He meant that, great goal.

            No way, he’s just trying to flick back across goal. Jose doesn’t allow flair finishes like that

              Fair point. Surprised he didn't ask the ref to scratch it off and give a goal kick

      Rubbish, commentator. Ndombele definitely did not look up and see the keeper off his line and that could easily have been an intended cross.

        He is awful like.

          Commentator - yes. Ndombele? no

          Did well to hook it back into the danger area.

        It's like Ings the other week - it's a "get it in the danger area" ball, maybe it finds a teammate, maybe it gets cleared and you win a corner, maybe it goes in. They fawned over Ings finish, but when interviewing him he was very coy about whether he meant it as a shot.

      Norwood is awful

    • Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      José out

    • ZLNR
      • 5 Years

      What a goal

    • Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      That’s an incredible chip to be fair to the lad

      Channeling his inner Dimitar Berbatov

    • Niho992
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Ramsdale is probably worst GK in the league.

      1. GROBARI
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 21 days ago

        It was a good goal to be honest

        1. Niho992
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 21 days ago

          Great goal but his movement is awful.

      2. Traction Engine Foot
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Tempted to TC Bruno next week

      3. REDMOND IN SANDALS
          10 months, 21 days ago

          was about to comment this an hour ago

      4. Pukki Party
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Is it true that Ramsdale got most saves of all keepers in 2020 in top5 leagues? Read that somewhere but hard to imagine.

        1. Brosstan
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 21 days ago

          because bournemouth played 0 at the back

        2. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 21 days ago

          Maybe the ball hit him the most times as Sheffield United are so bad

        What an [expletive] goal!

      6. Nikolai Volkoff
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        That's filthy!

      7. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Irrelevant goal for us

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 21 days ago

          Nope. Now Son and Kane can be rested.

        2. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 21 days ago

          For you maybe but every goal counts one way or the other

      8. Bielsa Murderball
        • 1 Year

        Watching spurs play is like the thumbnail pic

      9. fedolefan
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        That is goal of the season surely.

        1. 1zverGGadeM
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 21 days ago

          Lanzini's goal is the best so far

      10. Sif
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        That goal was filth

      11. GROBARI
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 21 days ago

        My mind:It can be 2-2
        5 second later:1-3

        1. GROBARI

          And a SHU goal to kill Kane winning goal bonus

      13. Hulk Smash
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Mark must be fuming with McGoldrick scoring a week late

      17. Bookkeeper
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Ramsdale will be relegated two seasons in a row. Has that happened to another player before?

        Spurs clean sheet wiped
        Irrelevant goal taking baps away from Kane and Son

        As a owner of no Spurs, Ill take it

        1. Mweene
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 21 days ago

          Isn't Kane still on 3?

          1. badgerboy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years

        Come on Kane assist Son pls for the love of god

      20. ivantys

        Son massive fail, Rashford would easily outscore him with a hit.

        1. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 21 days ago

          We will see....

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Is it harsh to suggest that Ramsdale should have done better? The only way Ndombele could have scored was by lobbing him.

      22. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Son absolutely nowhere to be seen in the BPS

        So glad I kicked out Dier for Chilwel. Spurs always concede
