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

    Shaquiri playing. Shock face

    1. Fred54
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Finally some creativity/Xfactor in the Liverpool midfield.

    knew ole was playing mind games with martial's fitness

    1. Patio Kev
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      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
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Ole has account here?

    2. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 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

    3. Dannyb
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    4. MIDIMAN2010
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Bailey probably stood on a Lego or something

  4. Dannyb
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    1. Sack The Glazers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      This. Martial is trash

    2. Slouch87

      Lol "we've" .

      1. Dannyb

        8 months, 6 days ago

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

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 6 days ago

          lol what's the problem there?

        2. Slouch87
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 6 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 .

            • 5 Years

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

            1. Slouch87
              • 5 Years
              8 months, 6 days ago

              Not denying that it isn't common .

        Why's that funny?

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

    2. Bank$y
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Some punter triple capped him for sure.

    3. Red Red Robins
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Took a punt on him too for DCL

    Salah upfront with shaqiri playing?

    1. GROBARI
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Most likley

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

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

    2. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 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
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

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

  9. Brosstan
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    1. Fred54
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Lindelol starting.

      1. Brosstan
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

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

  10. ALI_G
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    good tactics from SHU today

    let in goal

  11. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

  12. No Salah
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Pogba playing on left wing?!

    1. Fred54
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

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

      He's out left midfield it seems

  13. Party time

  15. BenDavies
    • 8 Years

    Son goal ends my season. Kane goal saves my season.

  16. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Lindelof over Bailly ... hmm not good

  17. Niho992
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Any reason why Lindelof starting ahead of Bailly ?

    1. Fred54
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      I think its for the culture.

    2. tinear
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Ole has Lindelof

  18. Party time
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Pogba playing LW?

    1. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Hopefully.

    2. Herman Toothrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Unless it's 4312

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Yup. Looks like that to me

      2. Party time
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Most likely

  19. Herman Toothrot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Salah RC and Rashford hatrick please.

    Cheers.

  20. GROBARI
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Jose,i think you have same players playing 82 minutes

  21. aborg
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

  22. Niho992
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

  23. THFC4LIFE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

  24. aborg
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    I bet that Lucas is going to come on for Son

  25. Londongeezaa
    • 3 Years

    Anyone else feel chips are overrated?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Party time
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Yes. True

    2. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 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
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Benchboost is the best chip

    3. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Londongeezaa
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 6 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
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Yes especially TC chip. I hate that chip

    5. Patio Kev
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 6 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.

  26. Hotdogs for Tea
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    need a Liverpool blank today ... sofa not big enough though

  27. Gobigorgohome

    Season already end
    sold Kane and Son -8 🙁

    1. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Did the players you brought in blank?

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Salah and Vardy

    2. GROBARI
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      I think you said that 83 times

    3. Mouldmaster

      Hardly a disaster

  28. Make United Great Again
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    WHY ISNT BAILLY STARTING

    1. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      because him and Lindelol are at the same level and both deserve starts.

      1. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Lol

  29. Lethargio Alcantara
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    This could end in disaster. Terrible line up to play against United.

  30. Brosstan
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Jose needing his first 11 to keep off the might Brewster and Sharp for the last 10 minutes
