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!

        Too much face value in that post

          Wow, that's deep!

      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

    almost a heart attack there for Son+Kane non-owners

      KDB Blank

    3. Jindaljain
      • 6 Years

      He might get injured

    4. hullcityfan

      KDB red

  5. SHOOTER MCGINN

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

  6. I'M VARANE GRATEFUL
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 14 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.

    1. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      It’s a absolute joke

    2. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 14 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
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 14 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
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 14 days ago

      And DCL

    4. Slouch87

      Lol. Drivel.

    5. Londongeezaa

      Kane’s BPS calcs do seem odd.

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

      1. HonestBlatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        RIGGED

  7. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    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.

    At what point is it taking the mickey to sub a player on for 10 seconds, up two goals

      I kept seeing him shoot the balls to the sky and he keeps getting +BPS

  10. Wild Guus Chase

    • 9 Years

    This Sheff U defeat only magnifies how bad Newcastle are right now.

  11. Saka_me_sideways
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Son + DCL > KDB and Antonio, already paid for itself.
    But apparently we shouldn’t of sold Son?

    1. Wild Guus Chase
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      And Kane

      1. Saka_me_sideways
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 14 days ago

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

        1. Wild Guus Chase
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

    Did Son look threatening?

    1. Jindaljain
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      5pts are not threatening

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Yup, hit the post in the first half one on one after being played through by Kane

    3. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      No he looks so approachable

      1. Please Answer Me
        • 7 Years

        Expecting a comment like this...didn't disappoint

    4. Brehmeren
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Yes. Hit the post.

    5. HonestBlatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      SO he has hit post two games in row now?

    6. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

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

  13. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Very unlucky son 🙁

    Jammy kane rewarding casuals

    1. Wild Guus Chase
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Son owner, non-Kane owner?

  14. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    What formation are Liverpool playing? What position is Shaqiri playing?

    1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      I’m guessing 4-2-3-1, Shaqiri at cam

  15. Woy_is_back
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Lindelof playing over Bailly, LOL

  16. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

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

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

  17. Lukakwho
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Is KDB leaked to be benched ?

    1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      What now?

    2. Brehmeren
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      No

    3. Spg76
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Insane!!! I’m gutted

  18. Duke Silver ☑

    Lovely jubbly. Spurs out the way now. Let's get back to climbing the ranks now. 😀

  19. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Antonio matching Kane with WBA (H) next

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Which he is doubt for

      1. Brehmeren
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        No, he isn't

    2. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Hopefully he plays

  20. Sid1891
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    That will do
    Son Kane non owner

    1. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Agreed. Not too bad

  21. DycheDycheBaby
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

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

  22. PLerix
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

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

    1. The Senate
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

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

      1. Lukakwho
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        This.

    2. Woy_is_back
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

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

    3. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

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

  23. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

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

  24. StayoutheSpiceZone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 14 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

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

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

  25. Mr. O'Connell
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

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

    1. Lukakwho
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Is Vardy definitely out of the other game

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 14 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.

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Brace against Chelsea 🙂

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

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

    3. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Exactly this.

      Story of most of my season!

  26. I'M VARANE GRATEFUL
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    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.

    1. Wild Guus Chase
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      You hope!

  27. fedolefan
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    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.

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 14 days ago

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

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

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

  28. Wild Guus Chase
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

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

  29. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Did kane and Dier to Cresswell and vardy for a hit

    Could still pay off

  30. Plagued by indecision
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 14 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?

    1. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

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