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

        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
          5 months, 1 day ago

          Ole has account here?

        • Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 1 day 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
          5 months, 1 day ago

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

        • MIDIMAN2010
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 1 day ago

          Bailey probably stood on a Lego or something

      2. Dannyb

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

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

              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. GROBARI
            5 months, 1 day ago

            Most likley

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

            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

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

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

          1. Fred54
            • 6 Years
            5 months, 1 day ago

            Lindelol starting.

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

        3. ALI_G

          good tactics from SHU today

          let in goal
          defend
          let in goal
          defend
          let in goal

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

            Lindelof over Bailly ... hmm not good

          • Niho992
            • 2 Years
            5 months, 1 day ago

            Any reason why Lindelof starting ahead of Bailly ?

            1. Fred54
              • 6 Years
              5 months, 1 day ago

              I think its for the culture.

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

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

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

                    1. Party time

                        Yes. True

                      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
                          5 months, 1 day ago

                          Benchboost is the best chip

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

                        1. Londongeezaa
                          • 2 Years
                          5 months, 1 day 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.

                      3. Party time
                          5 months, 1 day ago

                          Yes especially TC chip. I hate that chip

                        • Patio Kev

                          5 months, 1 day 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.

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

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