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

    Guess if I never had Son I can't feel bad for missing out on these points that are coming. Selling for a double GW player probably a mistake.

      Every move i ever make is a mistake. Kane to Vardy is going to slay me this week! Let's hope Son to KDB works out.

      Sold for Salah, don’t think that’s a mistake even if Son outscores him

              Dunno. Son+ Kane is pretty much headache free. They’re freewheeling. Forget their defence IMO - always spurts. Pas de headache.

            Did Lee Hendrie just use the word “Solidality”?

              Her certantly did.

              I think they may go on vocab training to improve their punditry?

                I think his brain got confused between Solidarity & Solidity & he just said “fck it imma roll with solidality”

                Second time hearing him and yes - Probably the worst I’ve ever heard - they’re scraping the barrel now

                He was getting confused last game & took over from the other guy who was supposed to describe the goal (can’t even remember which game it was, last week)

                Very weird

            Kane + Raphina -> KDB + Brewster (switch to 3-5-2)

            Goal line clearances should be a straight bonus point

            It would give a new value to great defenders and heading beasts like Kane

              Imagine transferring out the highest scorer in the game for a hit when he's playing the worst team in the league and then calling other people casuals lmao.

                Imagine doing Kane and Son to Cavani and Salah for -4 forget the casual word Lets see who win ?

                  Everyone plays his own game no such thing as casual ... A casual is one who doesn't watch or interested in football as a sport or game to me even if he's good at fpl at some point

                  1. Vertigo

                    1 month, 13 days ago

                    No such thing as a casual, but a casual is 'blah, blah, blah, blah, blah...'.

                1 month, 13 days ago

                It's a casual approach if you put it that way. SHU's defence in the past 4 weeks have been 3rd best and Spurs' away form and their attack, in general, have been pretty poor for a while now (besides the Leeds' game).

                only the higest scorer in the game because of his first 5 gameweeks. inflated his average score big time

              Son is still yet to score his 2 goals as well

              1 month, 13 days ago

              Judging by the posts in here, I thought Son had scored a hattrick inside 10 minutes.

                It’s always like this with Son and Kane on here. 1 goal and they’re essential. If Salah/Bruno score 1 goal it’s a disappointment

                  If Salah scores it would be a miracle, it's been so long

              Early goal, Tottenham pushing forward and Sheffield looking all over the place.

              Who would u own long term after gw 19
              1) Robertson + Son + Soucek
              2) 4.9mn defender + Son + Grealish---like WalkerPeters
              Find difficult to part with Robertson but Grealish has some really good matches coming up too
