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

      Vardy is an absolute waste of space compared to Kane.

    • Hattrick Harry

      There’s 2 scorers and neither has man bun, something to think about.

        No bun no man

      For those holding Kane... Unlikely they've got the range of premium picks across midfield too.

      It's a trade off. This is how this game works.

          I have Kane, Salah, Son, Soucek

        • gogs67
            2 months, 26 days ago

            I have KDB, Bruno, Son and Kane, can get Salah back to complete the 5 in 3 transfers, and still have double City defence.
            Swithering if it's worth holding them all though as I'd only have one playing keeper.

            At least people only sold Kane to Vardy for a -2.

            1. Pukki Party
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              As things stands Vardy pretty much needs an assist to match him

            My Kane to Vardy (C) baring fruits....

            It's quite amazing what Kane and Son do to your rank when you don't have them 😆

              Very true. Its just a good thing they'll be out if the way early with 18 teams yet to play...

                I like that positive attitude. Never though of it like that. Can only be up from full time in this game!

            Ramsdale should have done better

            Sheffield United are doing as bad as Derby because they've got a Ram between the sticks.

          • Pukki Party

            Kane and Son both 12.5m forwards next season?

            • 11 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Had a gut feeling Vardy would do well this week. Must have been something I ate. Hopefully he's fit for Chelsea so there is a chance.

            1. Custard Gannet
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 26 days ago

              Had the same feeling so made him captain. Seeing him hobbling off last night made me sick.

              Something you eat gives feelings of a Vardy haul? What is this food?

          • Sir Alex Telles.
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            did a -8 for Kane, son, KWP to Salah, Chilly, Antonio

            1. Royal5
              • 9 Years

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years

              Could pay off

            3. Garlana
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              That's not a terrible move. Could still work out if Kane and son stop now.

            4. REDMOND IN SANDALS
                2 months, 26 days ago

                not that bad tbh chilly antonio will get more points in coming weeks

                • 3 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Plenty of chances for that to still pay off.

              • Danno - Emre Canada
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                That’s alright so far....

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Will pay off I'm sure of it. I'll defo gain points from the move.

              2 months, 26 days ago

              Interesting fact, 손흥민 (Son Heung Min) is actually pronounces Sone (as in phone) not Son as in Bun. Heung is is pronounced more like "Hng", the vowel sound is very short. Min is pretty much as it looks.

                Kane is pronounced Kane, unless it’s Harry himself saying it.....

                2 months, 26 days ago

                Hmmm... not sure... Why don’t the South Korea fans pronounce his nickname as “Sony” (as in PS5) if that’s the case?

                (They actually call him “Sonny” as in Vito Corleone’s kid)

                1. Goodricke
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 26 days ago

                  Because the Japanese colonised Korea for 35 years (1910-1945) and treated the population as slave labour. They even tried to ban them using their own language. Japanese association isn't sought after here (I live in Korea)

                  1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    I see - Would that not make them pronounce it more like Sone-y though, than Sonn-y?

                    Pretty sure in the All or nothing documentary lots of his Korean fans pronounced it thus, but interesting insight nonetheless thx

                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 11 Years
                      2 months, 26 days ago

                      Maybe regional accents are a factor - are there many accents in South Korea that would skew the pronunciation?

                      It would be a bit like someone going to Korea and saying “They pronounce John Smith like this in England”...

                      Whereas a Geordie saying “John Smith” will be different to a Scouser, who will be different again to a Brummie, who will be different again to a Cockney etc, etc

                      Same in the US, NooYawk vs Ellabama vs Texas vs Montana vs California etc

                  Looks like you just disputed Korean pronunciation with a Korean person. God I love the internet.

                The Min section is slightly more toward the ‘mean, end but hardly much, other than that aye

                  That's why i said "pretty much" as some regional dialects shorten the sound to sound like Min.

              This would be 2-2 right now without Dier.

              I swapped Som and Kane to Maddy and Firmino.

              Not sure how it’ll work out but its just a game.

                Mine was Kane+Son to Sterling and Rashford. Jury still out but likely to be a failure.
