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

    This Son 5 pointer is an absolutely massive win for non-owners, especially in a DGW. You love to see it!

      The way the game started it looked like another typical Son mega haul.

        That shot off the post goes in and it's a big difference, fine margins. Was wasteful vs Fulham too

              So not expecting much from Bruno today as Pogba is on apparently

            • Sir Alex Telles.
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Kane, Vardy and Bamford usually have the BAPS system rigged in their favour. Antonio scored the lone goal yesterday and was only on 28 baps.

                2 months, 24 days ago

                It’s a absolute joke

                2 months, 24 days ago

                Antonio did f all and his baps were just as undeserved as the other striker baps. Need to reduce baps for goals scored (especially from pens) and increase baps for chances created.

                1. Deulofail
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  Remove baps entirely for all actions that are already rewarded in the main scoring system. IMO

                  And then add a few other things in to balance it out a bit.

              3. GROBARI
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  And DCL

                  Kane’s BPS calcs do seem odd.

                  Doesn’t take him much at all to get the max.

                Absolutely take just the 6 points from Son this week.

                Would have been behind a massive couch for the next half a week otherwise!

                  Yup. No Kane or Son for me from a FH so was nervous.

                  Could have been a lot worse.

                    But apparently we shouldn’t of sold Son?

                          I wouldn’t of sold Kane if I had him this week, but needed the MF slot of Son.

                        Very. Could easily have had a couple of goals and an assist at the end.

                      So keeping Son and switching Kane > Vardy worked out nicely then

                      My decision-making on this BB has been absolutely top drawer 😆

                      Antonio matching Kane with WBA (H) next

                          No, he isn't

                        Hopefully he plays

                      That will do
                      Son Kane non owner

                        Agreed. Not too bad

                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      As a non-Kane owner, got to be relieved about that. Could have been a hattrick for Kane

                      BAilly benched. If he’s fit, and United lose, Ole will get slated in the press.

                        • 2 Years

                        Ole always gets slated in the press regardless of what happens.

                          This.

                        Lindelöf is such a nothing player. It´s just scandinavian bias now

                        Ole is slaughtered by everybody...and ManU is nr1 in premierleague.

                      Kane has realised Son is outshining him and has stopped passing to him and started messing up all his assists!

                    14. StayoutheSpiceZone
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      I sold both Son and Kane. Feel like I sort of got away with it there: there were another two combos between them that could have been awful!

                      Hope Liv vs United is good

                        2 months, 24 days ago

                        So did. Transferred Antonio and Salah in, so np.

                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      So Kane to Vardy for a hit cost 11 points then. Sounds about right for a transfer made this season.

                      1. Lukakwho
                        • 3 Years
                        2 months, 24 days ago

                        Is Vardy definitely out of the other game

                        1. Mr. O'Connell
                          • 8 Years
                          2 months, 24 days ago

                          I'm just being negative. It's a big game so I'm guessing they will be doing all they can to get him fit.

                        Brace against Chelsea 🙂

                        1. Mr. O'Connell
                          • 8 Years
                          2 months, 24 days ago

                          Would still barely be in profit. Vardy fluffed his lines last night. Should have at least had a goal in that match.

                        Exactly this.

                      Son + Kane non-owners let off lightly there.

                      Glad I've evaded mega hauls from Spurs and Leeds. Now let the rea DGW begin.

                      15(-8) from 2, 21 more players to go.

                        You hope!

                      14 pts from Kane and Son was worth transferring them out for on a FH. Pity useless Party man is so trash. At least I have Mane and Salah to go.

                        Son yeah, Kane not so much but I'd take Vardy with two over him every time

                      2. Baps hunter

                        • 3 Years
                        2 months, 24 days ago

                        Antonio has already matched Kane and now it's time for C Salah to outscore Son!

                    18. Cometh The Aouar...
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      Here we go then chaps! Next up, the moment of truth. Can Salah deliver the goods?

                      • 1 Year
                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      Did kane and Dier to Cresswell and vardy for a hit

                      Could still pay off

                    20. greggles
                      • 10 Years
                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      Sold Kane and Son for Antonio and Salah. Need 19 pts to make a profit and Antonio already has nine of them, with 3 games left. Should ultimately have been worth it?

                        2 months, 24 days ago

                        Of course, you will win big over Son and Kane owners
