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

      Honestly I didn't expect Spurs to even put 3 past SU today but didn't expect SU to be that bad. Moving Son out a few weeks ago and Kane this week wasn't a bad move from the looks of things I guess though considering the points they could have gotten, Ndombele has really looked like a decent cut price option though

          Yeah their 3rd highest scorer with 3 goals.

              He's looked a lot more likely to score in a lot of games this season than his returns show

          State of Salah Cappers in about 3 hours from now?

          A) they'll love to see it

          B) They FEAST

          C) absolutely NOWHERE to hide for them

            Can he really go 4 blanks?

              Salah had a run of 6 PL games without a goal or assist in 18/19. He went 4 without a goal in 19/20. No reason why not this season too.

          999-0 with 999 Salah goals and 999 Robbo assists, please.

          Keep one long term
          A..Bamford
          B..Antonio

            B - because Bamford looks like a Accountant playing football and Antonio is Megatron playing football

              Best off asking after the next game, when Antonio breaks down again

                Yeah, magatrons parts are made in China. He needs German Bearings, Japanese Servos, and US Steel

              I should say- Bamford is not as dynamic in making his own fortune. He relies exclusively on Service and none on self play making

            Thanks guys
            Its defo Antonio's injury history that is a big issue
            Leeds better attacking team than West Ham
            Its 50/50

          Feel I need to preface that I'm a huge MU, before I continue writing this. But I feel Bruno will get a YC this match, derby, huge top 3 match and he does easily get hot headed(yelling at the ref and so on).

          Robertson mega haul needed.

          What TV program is the match on in the US?

        • GROBARI
            2 months, 23 days ago

            87-86 with 87 goals from Salah with 87 assist from Firmino and 86 penalties from United with Bruno scoring please

            If ever there was a time to play Cavani it was against a Liverpool team playing two midfielders as centrebacks.

              Yep. Another 'strange' decision from Ole

            2 months, 23 days ago

            Anyone know how to find out what percentage owns Salah, Bruno and KDB?

              LiveFPL, Overall Player Ownership at the top of the page, just above 7% apparently.

                Thanks. Thats lower than I imagined.

                  2 months, 23 days ago

                  You'd have to sacrifice the whole squad and there's Son and Kane too.

                    No you don’t.
                    Thats if you go 5 big hitters - not 4.

                    I got 1,6 ITB

                    AWB - Dias - Stones - Coufal
                    Salah - KDB - Bruno - Caveleiro
                    Kane - Antonio

                    (Martinez, Holding, Smith Rowe, Brewster)

            All red arrows from here on in, just Bruno in this game!

            This match is taking longer than ever to start

              2 months, 23 days ago

              Don't know why they make this slot 4.30 and not 4. Just want my pain to be over.

            Yeah Salah is done as an FPL asset. Robbo is way further forward and is 5mil cheaper.
