Kane makes immediate impact on Spurs return as Son breaks goal drought

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 2-0 WEST BROMWICH ALBION

  • Goals: Harry Kane (£11.0m), Heung-min Son (£9.7m)
  • Assists: Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£4.9m), Lucas Moura (£6.6m)
  • Bonus: Hojbjerg x3, Kane x2, Son x2

Kane and able

Harry Kane (£11.0m) made a swift return to Jose Mourinho’s starting XI in Gameweek 23.

Having injured both ankles in the Gameweek 20 defeat to Liverpool, Mourinho first reckoned Kane could return for the FA Cup fifth round or in Gameweek 24.

The Spurs boss then hinted at a comeback for West Brom’s visit, which duly occurred. Kane lasted the full game against the Baggies, despite an early challenge which saw him down and holding an ankle for a brief moment.

Kane also brought his shooting boots to the Gameweek 23 clash, managing more efforts (five) than any other player on show.

It was his fifth shot that beat Sam Johnstone (£4.5m), putting Spurs a goal ahead after 54 minutes. Kane also created the joint-most chances at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in Gameweek 23, while starting the move that saw Heung-min Son (£9.7m) double Spurs’ lead in the 59th minute.

Late rise for Son

Kane released Lucas Moura (£6.6m) on the counter-attack as West Brom sought a quick equaliser.

The Brazilian slalomed between panicked Baggies defenders before teeing up Son, whose shot had too much power for Johnstone to keep out – despite the keeper getting a slight touch before the ball sailed into the net.

Son was taken off well into injury time but not before he completed a late 30th pass. That, added to a pass completion percentage of 85%, saw him make a late rise up the Bonus Points System standings to earn two bonus points.

The FPL midfielder had failed to get on the scoresheet since Gameweek 17 and was delighted that his partner-in-crime Kane had returned to the fold. On his team-mate, Son regaled:

He’s so, so important for us. We know that Harry’s one of the best strikers in the world. It was only a couple of games but we missed him a lot. He came back and scored straight away, so I think this is what we need. When I play with him it’s really enjoyable – I miss him [when he’s not available].

Mou sleepless nights for Sam

Mourinho was effusive in praise of his players’ “compromise” after Spurs ended a run of three straight league defeats. He stated:

I loved the compromise of the players. I loved the effort, the determination. The clear show to everyone how together they are and how much they were suffering with the bad results. That, for me, was the fundamental thing.

In the first half we could kill the game, we had big dominancy and we had a couple of good chances. But the compromise of the players, for me, is the most important thing.

On failing to score in the opening 45 minutes, the Portuguese manager added:

Frustration, yes, but (also) a feeling of confidence. I spoke with the players at half time, maybe one minute. I didn’t need much more than one minute, there was not much to say apart from, ‘we are in the right direction and if we play the same way, for sure in the second half we have to win the game’.

Sam Allardyce, unsurprisingly, was less pleased with the outcome. The Baggies boss spoke before the game about his side’s defensive issues, which he felt came to the fore again over the 90 minutes.

I’m still facing the same problems ten games in and those lapses in concentration keep hurting us. Harry Kane being alone in our box amazes me but there you go. Son and Harry Kane have scored because of our weaknesses there.

Seeing Harry Kane in our box unmarked – that lapse at this level just can’t happen. We should be stopping that at source. Then we let them go from their box to our box without putting a mark on any one.

We scored, it got disallowed, we scored again and that was disallowed but at least we scored two ‘goals’ here. If we get the right service in the box we’ve got a man [Mbaye Diagne (£6.0m)] who can score.

Until we shut the back door better life is going to be difficult for us. This is it now, the window is shut, we’ve got what we’ve got. We’ve got to start winning games and we won’t do that by keeping on losing. We need an undefeated run with more wins than draws in it.

Every time I speak to you I’m sick about talking about conceding those kind of goals. It’s another night where I’m not going to sleep too well.

West Brom’s problems in defence bode well for Manchester United assets in FPL, with the Red Devils arriving at the Hawthorns in Gameweek 24.

Spurs’ next two games are tough-looking away trips to Manchester City and West Ham. Mourinho’s men will have Double Gameweeks in some fashion from Gameweek 26 onwards, though that schedule depends on FA Cup results among other things.


Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Davies, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Aurier (Doherty 67′); Ndombele, Hojbjerg; Son (Scarlett 90+3′), Lucas Moura, Lamela (Bergwijn 73′); Kane.

West Bromwich Albion XI (4-5-1): Johnstone; Townsend, Bartley, Ajayi, Peltier; Grant (Phillips 68′), Maitland-Niles, Sawyers (Yokuslu 77′), Gallagher, Snodgrass (M Pereira 79′); Diagne.

    When I said before gw1 that pool will not reach top 4 everyone here was laughing on my comment. I would like to see "Berbinhos forehead" face now because he said that i have mental illness related to those words that i spoke 🙂
    Where are pool biatches now ? 🙂

      In top 4.

      1. mynameisq
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Not just in top 4, but the prediction required them having numerous injuries to key players which isn't what you meant. You for some reason predicted their main team wouldn't get in top 4

        1. Chrisitis
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 21 days ago

          Every team has injuries. Maybe he knew the squad was weak.

          1. Jebiga
            • 9 Years
            7 months, 21 days ago

            I know that Looserpool can not play 3 years without substitution

          2. mynameisq
            • 8 Years
            7 months, 21 days ago

            Not every team has this level of injuries to certain positions, but anyway that is irrelevant they are still in top 4 anyway

    2. liverpool01
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      We are in top 4 and will stay in top 4

      1. SINGH
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        No you won't. One fluke league win and you think you are a big team. Getting slapped 7 by Villa lool

    3. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      The season isn't over but it's difficult to see them in top 4 if they continue in current form and the ompetition in their good form. The league and relegation look done deals so the scrap for Euro spots might be the only real battle for teams for something to play for.

      What a loser u r!!

      Has the season finished already?

      1. Jebiga
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Yes, Villa will decide about 4th place

        1. ivantys

          Nah villa too inconsistent, lose to burnley lol

    6. Tinkermania

      Not a Pool fan but what makes you think your prediction is right already?

  2. aapoman
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Eeeearly thoughts? 2ft and 0.1itb

    Martinez
    Cancelo Stones Lowton
    Sterling (c) Salah Bruno Son Grealish
    Antonio Watkins

    Forster; Coufal, KWP*, Brewster

    Son and Antonio -> Hames + DCL? Then wc in gw25 + bb in gw26.

    1. tibollom
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      decent moves mate

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      I removed Antonio for DCL but Son could hurt even against City?
      Go for it if WC next week

  3. tibollom
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Hello guys, got 1 FT and 1.0 ITB.. Lloris to Pope or should I take a hit somewhere?

    LLoris Button
    AWB Dias Cancello Mee CTaylor
    Son Bruno Salah Gundo Raphina
    Bam DCL Watkins

  4. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    GTG & best C choice?

    Martinez,
    Dias, Coufal, Mee
    Son, Salah, Foden, Bruno, Gundo
    Bamford, DCL

    Johnson, Watkins, Maguire, Mitchell

    1. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Dcl or gundo for captain.

      Thinking dcl and treat city as a bonus.

      1. DandyDon
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Not tempted by Foden?

        1. DandyDon
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 21 days ago

          Can’t imagine Gundo is on pens still (may even be Phil’s turn!) so he drops down the reckoning a bit for me.

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            7 months, 21 days ago

            Even after scoring a brace from open play? He'll be my captain regardless of keeping or losing pens.

            1. g40steve
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 21 days ago

              He wouldn’t of had the tap ins if they had gone in for Phil 😉

        2. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 21 days ago

          Very much so, genius or disaster 🙂

  5. Steve McCroskey
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    My ML rival has 41 points on his bench, can anyone beat that?

    Martinez - 9
    AWB - 4
    Foden - 16
    DCL - 12

    He has 36 points currently with Bamford to go.

    1. tibollom
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      amazing.. ive got DCL on the bench with Bam and Raphina left to play, have given up hope of any of those two not playing

      1. Saint Tim
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        I have DCL AND Watkins on my bench with Bam and Raphina left to play....

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Ouch, listening to too much FPL?

    3. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      His bench would outscore his starting 11 if Bamford blanks lol.

    4. Pedersen
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      May Bamford and dallas be benched. (Tasty Gundo points, get of my bench !)

  6. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Bench Son -> Son (C) -> Bench Son again

    1. Dosh
      • 7 Years

      Amazing season for FPL

  7. Chelsea91
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Areola
    Dias,Stones,Cresswell,Mee
    Salah,Bruno,Grealish,Gundagon(c)
    DCL,Antonio

    Mendy Maddison,Bamford,Justin

    Bench order correct?

    1. Aubamewho
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Bamford Madison Justin, but I'd consider playing Bamford for Cresswell too.

      1. Chelsea91
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Can see Cresswell getting CS and Assist .

  8. Gemma817
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Really could do with some help here. Rank's been free falling for the last 2 GWs.

    Pope, 4m
    Justin, TAA, Dallas, Stones, Mitchel
    Gundo, Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Soucek
    Kane, Bamford, Antonio

    FT: 1, ITB: .8m

    WC and BB in hand too. Surely a better time to play it, right?

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Just get Dias in for TAA

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Yeah getting rid of Liv defense is a relief. Then sit on the money till you need it again.

    3. Gemma817
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Cheers, guys. That seems like the right thing to do.

  9. Mr. O'Connell
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Next week's benching headache (assuming Soucke's ban is overturned). First thoughts are actually to bench Grealish.

    Kane (mci)
    Grealish (bha)
    Soucek (SHU)
    Bamford (ars)

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Soucek or Bam

      1. Aubamewho
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Soucek.

    2. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Bamford

    3. JustPark
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Bench Son.

  10. SHOWSTOPPERRR
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Thanks to mark and the person who posted that last minute link of his YouTube video here. I was torn between doing bissou to Barnes /rash and Martin to pope and bench Martinez, as soon as I saw Mark brought son and captained him I did bissou to sonC and played Martinez..

  11. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Martinez
    Cancelo Dias Lowton Cresswell
    Salah Bruno Grealish Gündo
    DCL Antonio

    (Steer Bamford Son Mitchell)

    A) Steer ➡️ Pope
    B) Steer & Mitchell ➡️ Areola & Mee -4 (Use BB)

    Plan to wildcard in GW25 to setup for the doubles.
    Dont have FH for the blanks in GW29.
    So If I use BB this week ill probably keep double/triple Leeds (Dallas, Raph & Bam) on my bench for GW29.
    Although I could use BB in GW26 also with a couple of Leeds assets against Villa.

    Thoughts?

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      GW29 might be a complete bust, I'd still be looking at the BB in GW26 tbh after you wildcard.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Yeah I kind of agree with that.
        I do fancy the GW26 BB more as ill have atleast 2 players on my bench with a double along with Leeds and wont have to take a hit. Also I dont like the idea of going without Pope this week.

    2. CRO KLOPP
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      I am doing the same and TC in 26

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        TC is tempting in GW26 on Kane

        1. CRO KLOPP
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 21 days ago

          Yes,Kane is Great TC.With 3 Leeds and Areola/Sanchez I already have 4 players in 29

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 21 days ago

            But whats your bench looking like this week?

            1. CRO KLOPP
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 21 days ago

              It's hard to tell you that ,I could play anyone this week. But Something Like this Martinez Coufal Bamford Maguire

              1. Karan14
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                7 months, 21 days ago

                If I used BB we have very similar players. But its just that I have to take a -4 and I cant get Pope also.

                1. CRO KLOPP
                  • 3 Years
                  7 months, 21 days ago

                  You have to decide yourself is it worth a hit,I have Fabianski/Martinez combo. Maybe someone gets injury and you cant BB. If you BB in 26 you have 8 players on bench,I will have 4 now and 4 extra in 29 so it's same. There is a chance also that someone doesnt play both in 26 due to rotation/injury/rc

                  1. CRO KLOPP
                    • 3 Years
                    7 months, 21 days ago

                    This is all on paper obviously

                    1. CRO KLOPP
                      • 3 Years
                      7 months, 21 days ago

                      If you have 3 Leeds for 25,than you don't have 8 for double in 26 on bench

    2fts and 2.6itb.
    Not quite decided on wc/TC yet.
    Martinez johnstone
    Cancelo stones mee dallas coufal
    Salah Bruno son gundo soucek
    Bamford antonio dcl

    Any early suggestions?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Johnstone to Pope?

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Yeah probably sensible. I've used my bb though and I'm reluctant to keep putting more money into my subs

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Seems like you can do something like Coufal > Shaw.
      Likely a good dgw coming up and Coufal seems to be bench most of the next weeks. Otherwise I’d burn the transfer.
      I wouldn’t do the keeper if you’re not doing BB. Set and forget. Save the money.

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Interesting, thank you. I'll take a look at that

  13. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Did Salah have a single chance from open play? Looked energetic at times but never actually threatened, penalty aside.

    1. Jebiga
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Lol, he just practising diving
      all the time and actually he's got a penalty

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      This is what concerns me too. In the last few matches he always seems to far wide on the right, so when they are attacking the other players don't really look for him, preferring Mane who's making runs much more centrally.

      My guess it's to do with the system with playing mids in defence, rather than Mo's fault.

  14. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Who wins this? lol

    1. Bamford
    2. Dallas + 3 points

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Bamford will blank?

  15. Jebiga
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Should I save WC if i have 12 dgw players for dgw26 already ?

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Depends who they are and how the fixtures fall, but yeah probably.

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Yep I would. WC out of 29/30 and set up for the tin home.

    3. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Yes. Can throw together a decent BGW team then between 27 to 29 and WC after it back to a less restricted team for a full GW.

    4. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      How do you know what players have a double in 26?

      1. Jebiga
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Ben Cremlin excel sheet

    Anyone considering Kane?

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      for 26

      1. Little Red Lacazette

        +1

      2. Aubamewho
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Definitely

    2. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Of course, already have Burnley as part of a 26 potential double, but no rush with it being city this week.

    3. Bury94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Probably get him on my GW25 Wildcard

    4. The Train Driver
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Plenty I think, but not for this gw. Some are eve benching.

    5. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      For sure, GW26 captain.

    6. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Got him back yesterday. Took a - 8 again. Nothing to lose now, can't get much worse.

      1. Aubamewho

          • 10 Years
          7 months, 21 days ago

          Cheers but more of a sheep that's losing interest and could do with a few sessions. A enjoying watching some full games though. Invested in a few months of Now TV and it's grand with a few beers if herself doesn't ask me 'does he not play for the other lads'?!!!

    7. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Yep will be bringing him in on WC in 25

    8. Groot the Leveller

    9. Van der Faart

    Morning all
    Suggestions on what to do here? (Assuming soucek is overturned and free to play)

    Pope
    Stones / cancelo / maguire
    Salah / son / Fernandes / gundogan / soucek
    Antonio / DCL

    McCarthy / bamford / targett / Dallas

    2FT, 2.8 ITB

    1. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Nothing to do here other than switching Soucek to a DGWer.

      1. ShaunGoater123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Yeah think that’s the only move, although if overturned then seems a brave / silly move when playing sheff Utd!?

        Maybe McCarthy or Dallas out?

        1. ShaunGoater123
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 21 days ago

          Actually just remembered they have a double next week!

          1. ivantys
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 21 days ago

            Mccarthy's not keeping any CS in the double so he's useless keeping.

        2. ivantys
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 21 days ago

          Mccarthy for a better keeper is fine too like Sanchez. Even though he might not have double, he's against wba that week.

  22. The Train Driver
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    If you get a good team for gw 26 without a wc, when do you think you'll be using your wc then?

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      After BGW.

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      31

  23. jai1212
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Did my FT yesterday only and now settled for the week, how's the team looking?

    Pope
    Dias Stones Pieters
    Gundogan Bruno Rash Salah Son
    DCL (C) Antonio

    Subs: Nyland - Shaw - Coufal - Brewster

    Anything to change?

    1. Mweene
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      My only question would be why didn't you wait until after the FA cup games, but looks good.

    2. John Nerdelbaum
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      careful with Pieters if Taylor is back

  24. G Banger
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Providing no injuries this week, the following worth a BB?

    Martinez, Areola
    Cancelo, Dias, Tarkowski, Dallas, Coufal
    Salah, Bruno, J Rodrigez, Grealish, Gundo
    Antonio, Bamford, DCL

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Martinez (bha), Bamford and Dallas (ars), Coufal (SHU). It's touch and go with the Leeds boys. Might be a better opportunity, might not.

  25. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Spurs to score against Man City or no?

    1. Mweene
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Doubt it. I'm benching Kane.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        I really wouldn't

        1. Mweene
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 21 days ago

          Spurs will barely get into City's final third. Can't see them scoring.

    2. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Doubt it, I’m benching Son

  26. farmerfat

    Morning all.

    Thoughts on this WC 25 team, set up to BB in 26?
    Martinez Pope
    AWB Digne Dallas Stones Dias
    Maddison Son Fernandes Gundogan Raphinha
    Bamford Kane Watkins

    Thanks!

  27. estheblessed

    People talking about WC 25 and BB 26 - is this the popular strategy or will there be better opportunities further along?

    1. CRO KLOPP
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Depends if you have FH,and if you can setup for doubles without WC,then WC in 30

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Will we definitely know the fixtures before gw24?

      1. CRO KLOPP
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        I don't know,but we will know who goes through in cup,so who blanks

    3. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      I used in 20 and no regrets. We pretty much could guess which teams would go through in the cup anyway. Still think that using earlier is better as you can benefit more by getting the right players in earlier.
