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

      He might get a hat-trick of completed passes perhaps. Maybe.

    Kane and Son are such consistent scorers!

    1. Magic Zico

      Top FPL score tables for mid and forward

    I need Son Kane to haul and Salah(C) to haul more than KDB to make up for me missing the deadline and not doing
    Son > KDB(C)
    Kane > Antonio

    I honestly would take it if it's 15pts less

  4. PogChamp

    Cresswell top of the defender points table. He's already got 10 baps. My best pick of the season so far.

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 1 day ago

      He's a bap magnet and found out exactly why when i watched west ham yesterday

      Very composed on the ball

      1. PogChamp
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah he was great yesterday

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        He's overpriced. Coufal creates similar number of chances for less.

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Cresswell 85 pts Coufal 58 pts

    2. The Red Devil
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Brilliant defender, shame I can't afford him, had to be content with coufal, hopefully he hauls in the second game

      1. PogChamp
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Coufal is still nice. Gave West Ham double defence a lot of thought but went with Antonio instead.

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Enjoyed the cressy wagon for weeks but went to coufal on wc, 2 points less but a lot cheaper

  5. Elly88 > KTR (Kevin The …

    I want Kane and Son to score an inordinate number of goals to justify my BB.

  6. TheDragon

    3 months, 1 day ago

    Is KDB going to start tonight?

    1. Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      WHy not?

      1. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        I don’t know - I’ve triple captained him and I’ve got the fear. I’ve a history of bad triple captains

        1. Little Red Lacazette
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Not worse than mine. I TC'd Mane for 3 points in total.

          1. The Red Devil
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            I'd TC sterling for his 1 pointer last season

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Hopefully but why not?

  7. Shark Team

    Is KDB(-4) gonna outscore Kane ?

    1. Hits from the Bong
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Yeah

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Yes

    3. Elly88 > KTR (Kevin The …
      • 8 Years

      Its a matter of wait and see because Spurs can score 7 goals and I guess you already know Kane's involvement in Spurs goals..

    4. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Hope not

  8. The Red Devil
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    On an unrelated topic, those with meslier owners, what're you doing? I can move him on for McCarthy or take a hit to get Martinez

  9. Hits from the Bong
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Anyone regretting not TCing Salah? Think I messed up

    1. Mac90
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Y

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Not even having him, disaster waiting to happen

    The end is nigh.

      If it was, I’d have report you to Operation Yewtree...

        😮

  11. Quan MisTaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    How is Kane on 30bps and Aurier on 18bps?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Kane’s goal is worth 24 BPS.

      1. Quan MisTaka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        are strikers goals worth more? Surely surier got winning goal bps?

        Is there a list of bps for action somehwere?

        1. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Q1. https://fantasy.premierleague.com/help/rules

          Q2. Winning goal baps added at the end of the end I believe

          1. Deulofail
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Q3. See Q1.

            nice one pal, thank you

    2. mynameisq
      • 7 Years

      Clean sheet not factored in yet?

    3. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Fwds get ridiculous amount of points for a goal, Aurier CS points yet to be added...

    4. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      FWDs get more bps for a goal than DEFs. Because FWDs job is to score goals. DEFs job is to keep CS.

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      You get 25 for scoring as a forward.

    6. GROBARI
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Kane created big chance for Son and cs is not factored in

      • Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Wait for the CS bps

      • Jersey Boy
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Forward gets considerably more baps for a goal than a defender does

      • Yes Ndidi
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        You get extra bps for being England Captain

    7. Sim Simma 🤷 🔑 🚘
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      SHU look like they'll score soon

    8. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Son was in there, strange to pull it back

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Thanks for your advice on keeping kane . I probably would have done it but you just gave me that extra little push 😉

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          No probs, bit early to fully judge though!

    9. Naby K8a
      • 5 Years

      Oh no Henderson at cb again

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Do they have any choice?

        1. Naby K8a
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          played Williams in the Spurs win but not really

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Too risky that but Henderson at the back is likely impacting attack

    10. Al Moon Yeah

      Utd fans...poools have been lost at home for more than almost 3 years right? As a Utd fan I feel this is our best chance considering our form/confidence and pools form and their defence..Tough coz they always on a high at home but gut says today is the day..

      Ramsdale was such an awful signing for SHU. He looked crap at Bournemouth too so no pity for SHU. They should have known better.

      1. Nightcrawler

        For sure

      2. GROBARI
          3 months, 1 day ago

          They saw when he saved a penalty from Ings last season and thought like he is a Henderson v2.0

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        If Kane comes away with 9 pts and Son only 5 I’ll feel hard done by as a Son owner

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year

          If sours keep a cleanie it will most likely be 6 vs 8

        Ramsdale such a clown. Drop this guy, Wilder.

      5. Super Saints

        Ramsdale worst keeper in the league

        Kane assist Son.

        Is that too much to ask for?

        Spurs' counter attacking is freaking scary. Every time Sheffield Utd give the ball away you feel they're going to score.

      9. Super Saints

        3 managers in top 10k share my Arsenal triple up of Tierney, Saka & ESR. If you're out there, guys, let's Skype.

        1. Steve The Spud

          1. Deulofail

            Which players?

            I'm 1.9m myself, so those 3 managers were not wise to copy my strategy.

          Another Kane goal with a non-Son assist please
