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!

    • TomSaints

      Ok wow. Was it a cross though?

      1. Duke Silver ☑

        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

              • 5 Years

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

    • Paul Psychic Octopus

      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.

        1. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          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
      • 5 Years

      José out

    • ZLNR
      • 5 Years

      What a goal

    • Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

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

      Channeling his inner Dimitar Berbatov

    • Niho992
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Ramsdale is probably worst GK in the league.

      1. GROBARI
          1 month, 8 days ago

          It was a good goal to be honest

          1. Niho992
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Great goal but his movement is awful.

        • Traction Engine Foot

          Tempted to TC Bruno next week

        • REDMOND IN SANDALS
            1 month, 8 days ago

            was about to comment this an hour ago

        • Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 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
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            because bournemouth played 0 at the back

          2. Super Saints
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

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

        • Ze_Austin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          What an [expletive] goal!

        • Nikolai Volkoff
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          That's filthy!

        • BenDavies
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Irrelevant goal for us

          1. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Nope. Now Son and Kane can be rested.

          2. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

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

        • Bielsa Murderball
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Watching spurs play is like the thumbnail pic

          • fedolefan
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            That is goal of the season surely.

            1. 1zverGGadeM
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Lanzini's goal is the best so far

          • Sif
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            That goal was filth

          • GROBARI
              1 month, 8 days ago

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

              1. GROBARI
                  1 month, 8 days ago

                  And a SHU goal to kill Kane winning goal bonus

                Mark must be fuming with McGoldrick scoring a week late

                1 month, 8 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

                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 8 days ago

                  Isn't Kane still on 3?

                    • 5 Years

                      1 month, 8 days ago

                      Yes

                  Come on Kane assist Son pls for the love of god

                    1 month, 8 days ago

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

                      We will see....

                    1 month, 8 days ago

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

                  • BenDavies
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 8 days ago

                    Son absolutely nowhere to be seen in the BPS

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