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

    Kane - *breathes*
    FPL - +3 bps

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

      Its same for all strikers

      1. Duke Silver ☑
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Yeah that's true tbf. I'm just here wondering how he's on 40 bps 😆

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

        Absolutely not the same for all strikers

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

      He’s not even very good at breathing

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Well, obviously...

  8. Niho992

    Liverpool winning goal from penalty in '94 pleaseeee

  9. I'M VARANE GRATEFUL
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Bruno will blank vs this Sheffield team, don't argue, I have the crystal ball.

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

      How much it cost?

  10. Salan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    This Liverpool line-up makes some scores e.g. 5:3 or 6:2, being possible...

  11. Cok3y5murf
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    What a massive fail for the smug Son owners

    1. I'M VARANE GRATEFUL
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Don't jinx it, wait for full time whistle.

      1. Cok3y5murf
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        If I do that, they'll call me captain hindsight...

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

      And yet not really, he got an assist you know?

      1. hullcityfan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        5 points really enough for a 9.7 player in a DGW

        1. hullcityfan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          not really enough*

    3. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I know 🙁 it started so well! Very unlucky not to have more to be fair and was the right decision to keep.

    4. Flair

      Isn't it beautiful? Hubris coming back to bite them.

  12. Naby K8a
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    That's a very small Liverpool side. Utd's in contrast have more aerial threats.

  13. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Kane's BAPS are crazy, Son should be on 3 for being such a nice guy

    1. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Kane has turned into an action man. He used to be more of a poacher like Vardy. Now he is more of an all-round player like Fernandes

    2. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      He hoovers them up through his open mouth as he runs around

  14. Deulofail
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    If you kept Son, you deserve about 5 points.

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

    HOW does Kane always end up with 3 BPS for just scoring a goal every time?!! It’s ridiculous!

    Other teams, a forward player scores, zero, Kane scores, 3 every time.

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      He's always claiming BAPS that aren't his

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

        It’s an absolute joke it really is, defo fixed

    2. FPL.team
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Antonio got 3 yesterday. It's weighed towards strikers getting goals.

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

        Used to be when FPL was good and fun, now it’s not. Rarely I see it for other strikers apart from fixed Kane

        1. diesel001
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Vardy, Antonio both do well in BAPS when they score.

    3. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Because they only get four points for scoring a goal

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

        What?

    4. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Passes completed, chances created, doesn't get dispossessed much, doesn't generally miss big chances or commit many fouls and doesn't get caught offside a lot compared to other towards.

  16. mynameisq
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Did son break fpl scoring records then? Was on a monster haul 10 mins in by all accounts

    1. I'M VARANE GRATEFUL
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      still time.

    2. JJO
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      You can relax your swingter now

  17. Jindaljain
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Salah with Goal & assist and Robo with goal & assist and Bruno Goal..Best match ever it would be

  18. _Ninja_
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Kane wastes a son assist

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Kane subbed off

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Sorry its Son

        1. Slouch87
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Understandable. Very difficult to tell them apart.

    2. The Train Driver
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      That was a sitter, crazy miss...

  19. Rolls-Royce
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    This Liverpool team can either win 5-0 or lose 0-5. I hope it's the latter.

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

      that's so true.

  20. The Train Driver
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Wow Kane wtf was that!!!!!

  21. TomSaints
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Looks like spurs sellers got away with it.

    I was burned too badly by son earlier in the season. Disappointed but happy with decision to keep

    1. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Sellers or free hit takers yeah - Kane to Antonio working out ok so far.

  22. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Son is wasted in this team, Kane ruining so many points for him

  23. BenDavies
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Son subbed off. kane to bag a hattrick in added time

  24. diesel001
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Son off
    Vinicius on

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

      Real sold him? 😀

  25. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Son off instead of Kane to rub it in even more

  26. Danno - Emre Canada
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Got away with that, cheers Son. I’ll have you back in a few weeks, if you’re lucky!

  27. DAZZ

    Non spurs owner, delighted with this. Could have been miles worse.

    1. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Kane's 9 pointer is bad though.

    2. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Yes have to be happy with 14 points between thm, always a good fixture and would have kept Son if it weren't for the KDB shaped hole in my team

  28. Duke Silver ☑
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Son 5 pointer. That's some good damage limitation.

  29. Brosstan
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    After Son's haul today its very unlikely Son -> KDB hits will pay off... unlucky those who did it, hard to predict a haul like this against sturdy Sheffield.

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Yeah, difficult to make up for that mega haul from son

  30. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Ndombele nailed and worth a punt at 5.9 cant be any worse than souceck
