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

      Finally some creativity/Xfactor in the Liverpool midfield.

        He did look injured when he came off at the end of the last game to be fair.

      Bailly was rock solid, why is he benched?

      1. GROBARI
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Ole has account here?

        • Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          He's by far their best CB but very injury prone so probably managing him, they know they'll lose this game whatever

        • Dannyb
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          God knows, I'm so fuming that he isn't playing, add to that Martial starting as well.......

        • MIDIMAN2010
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Bailey probably stood on a Lego or something

      2. Dannyb
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Devastated that Martial starts, we've got no chance with that donkey up top.

          Lol "we've" .

            Oh terribly sorry Sir, I do apologise, I've obviously offended you.

              3 months, 27 days ago

              Not at all . Why would I be offended ? Just highly amusing . Makes it sound like your either playing today or part of the Man Utd coaching staff .

                Isn't it pretty common for football fans to refer to their teams as 'we' Mr Pedantic?

                1. Slouch87
                  • 5 Years

                  Not denying that it isn't common .

        1. GROBARI
            3 months, 27 days ago

            Most likley

            1. Pat Bonner
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 27 days ago

              Used to be the case didn’t it but so long since shaqiri was actually fit!!

            • 2 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            Could swing between 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1 during the match, but my guess is that it's 4-2-3-1

            1. Pat Bonner
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 27 days ago

              Cheers. Could be a few goals in this one! (0-0 now I’ve said that)

          • 6 Years

          Cheapos who picked Bailly or Lindelol getting what they paid off. Constant rotation risk.

          1. Fred54
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            Lindelol starting.

            1. Brosstan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 27 days ago

              This game yes. Benched last game. and against Fulham most likely.

        3. ALI_G
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          good tactics from SHU today

          let in goal
          defend
          let in goal
          defend
          let in goal

            More a case of " too crap to attack "

            The Gammons won't like that he's become left wing..

        10. Niho992
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Any reason why Lindelof starting ahead of Bailly ?

          1. Fred54
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            I think its for the culture.

          2. tinear
            • 1 Year

            Can’t understand how Son has not scored yet ! That sitter he missed would have gotten him to 13 points by now :/

          • Niho992
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            Only Salah (C) can save this GW. Come on Salah, come on you mighty reds !!!

            Salah likely upfront with that formation, worried as a non-captainer

          • aborg
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            I bet that Lucas is going to come on for Son

              • 3 Years
              3 months, 27 days ago

              They are I've overrated if they fail & game changers when they don't.

              1. Party time
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 27 days ago

                Yes. True

            2. diesel001
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 27 days ago

              Only bench boost.

              Free Hit is great for BGWs when you can't structure your team over the medium term to have loads of players. TC is just a free punt. But BB is massively overrated, IMO. People restructure their squad for a one GW play.

              1. Party time
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 27 days ago

                Benchboost is the best chip

              Chips overrated?
              You mean you'd rather do without them???

              1. Londongeezaa
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 27 days ago

                Just too much emphasis is placed on them, when in reality they don’t make that much of a difference. Generally speaking of course.

            4. Party time
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 27 days ago

              Yes especially TC chip. I hate that chip

            5. Patio Kev
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 27 days ago

              BB and TC aren’t particularly helpful - 20 points ceiling.

              FH is by far the best chip for the BGW’s especially for FAC weekends.
