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.

          Why him?

            • 1 Year
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Ah! You didn't as about why Kane? Rafinah keeps getting better and Arsenal getting worse. Highly unlikely Kane will get a penalty against City. Almost guaranteed 2 point.

            1. Inazuma X1
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Kane makes sense. Raphinha is a hit & miss category, I'll see how they play today though

              1. Tinkermania
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 9 days ago

                Rafinah has Arsenal and Kane has City was my point. If Kane had WBA, would be easy choice.

                1. Inazuma X1
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 9 days ago

                  Spurs usually beat City

    6. diesel001

      Should be through to the next round of the FPL Cup. So much luck involved. Anyone else through or likely to make it through?

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        I have a close run again - depends on Bamford v/s Dallas

      2. Homer21
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        They should remove TC and BB from cup teams

    7. KUN_DE_BRU_YNE
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Suggestions :
      A) Ben Mee + J.Vardy
      Or,
      B) kilman/struijik + H.kane

      If A then i will buy mee this GW
      If B then i have to hold my Ft.

        TAA has been a disastrous transfer, but also tempted to rid myself of Salah. Current plan is for WC 25 and BB 26. Thoughts? 1 FT, 0.9 ITB.

        Pope / Martinez
        Cancelo / Stones / Justin / TAA / Bednarek
        Salah / Fernandes / Grealish / Saka / Gundogan
        Bamford / Antonio / DCL

        1) TAA > Digne
        2) Salah > James Rodriguez (or another - any suggestions?)

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          1 looks nice

        2. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          1) TAA > Mee

      • Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years

        This week's scout picks is an awful sight.

        1. Mweene
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Pretty sure I've outscored it every week. Never take any notice of it.

      • RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Soucek+Robbo >> Salah+Digne (-4)?
        And bench Bam Bam.

        Pope
        Coufal, Dias, Cancelo
        Son, Bruno, Soucek**, Gündo
        Bamford, Antonio, DCL
        (McCarthy, Raphina, Dallas, Robbo)

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Not worth benching Bamford for a -4

        2. Atimis

            Yes worth a punt imo

            • 5 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Im going double. Single wont be differential enough.
            Cant ask for better fixtures for cheap defenders to have in a double.

            1. Steve The Spud
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 9 days ago

              I think I would play 1 ahead of Maguire

              Back 4 of stones, cancelo, mee, Lowton

              1. Karan14
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 9 days ago

                I think its worth a punt.
                Anyways I dont trust us to keep a CS away to West Brom.

                1. Steve The Spud
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  2 months, 9 days ago

                  It’s a differential because everyone will play wh and mu def, also a risk I suppose

          5. Atimis
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            One as wouldn't take a hit for a dead wood

              Fair point, would be 2 free’s

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 9 days ago

                Just see whether it won't make you take a hit the week after as well

        • Gudjohnsen
          • 4 Years

          So Soucek get's a 3 match ban or will it be overturned?

              I reckon it will be overturned but nothing official yet I don’t think

              • 11 Years

            Who would you drop for DCL?
            1) Vardy
            2) Antonio

            Bamford I guess is not an option since he has double in 25.

            1. Ajax Hamsterdam
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              DCLs fixtures are pretty stinken after this weekend.

            5. jb1985
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              I would keep DCL this week for the double and then look to move on in GW 25, TBH the Merseyside derby are usually tight games and Liverpools defence is shocking at the moment.

                  That spreadsheet can be wrong, and was already wrong on gw25 in its earlier version. Just leave gw26 and start to think about this after all FA cup matches played after Thursday.

                  Football doesn't work that way though did you think Newcastle would be Southampton this week, did you think West ham wouldn't beat Fulham? Both those results would have been in the unlikely side of things

                  No we dont. There could easily be some cup upsets and it is not necessary all blanks caused by the FA Cup will be rescheduled for GW26 only.

                Exactly. I don't understand why so many ppls think they know the gw26 fixtures now.

            My bench next week is highly decorated. Bamford, Salah and Justin - all three in top lineup of season so far! Needs must I guess. One of them is guaranteed to outscore Mee!

            1. Van der Faart
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              I'd not bench Justin v Liverpool right now.

            2. Ajax Hamsterdam

              Martinez, Bamford & Son for me

              Liverpool will score against Leicester 100%.

              Liverpool always do well against Leicester and I can see a reaction.

              The mistake we make in this game is always looking at last week's score.

              Take me for example I benched DCL for Soucek because Soucek scored against Villa.

              In hindsight it is an utter mistake.

              Justin doing well in the past couple of gws does not mean he does well against LFC IMO.

              The other 2 I would be nervous benching but I have to bench Bamford because I fell into the double gw trap.

              1. DandyDon
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 8 days ago

                Yea not concerned about benching Justin this week with so many good options! Salah and Bamford always a risk (and don’t think I’ve done that before with two top scoring attackers) but have 2 city midfielders and Bruno and rashford against WBA. Antonio also has SHU at home.

            Better to hold your transfers till FA Cup games. GW26 fixture announcement should be the key to further transfer plans.

              Yes definitely.

              Although GW26 fixtures might only be announced next week.

              FA Cup round finishes Thursday night. GW26 fixtures would need to be announced the next day to be before the GW24 deadline. No more than a 50/50 chance that happens I would say.

              1. Ruth_NZ
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 8 days ago

                Much less than 50/50. Probably the following Monday/Tuesday. Not by GW24 deadline in any case but Crellin will doubtless make some guesses which others will treat as facts. 🙄

            4. Free Hat
              • 2 Years

              Yes.
              In this part of the season I dont understand the early transfers. Team value not so important anymore, especially if you have BBed.

              And with most teams in Fa cup not worth the risk.

            GTG?

            Pope
            Cancelo, Stones, Mee, Digne
            Sterling (C), Salah, Bruno, Saka
            Antonio, DCL (VC)

            Bench: Martinez, Bamford, Coufal, Soucek

          11. akhilrajau

            Digne, Coufal, Maguire, Stones
            Bruno, Salah, Gundogan, Sterling
            Antonio, Watkins
            bank: 0.6m, FT: 1
            Bench: Martinez, Adams, Dallas, Barnes

            A.. GTG. save FT
            B. Barnes, Antonio/ Watkins -> Raphina/ward-pownse, Bamford(-4)

            For both, i will get Bamford next gw. For B i can have DCL now(dgw) and next gw i can replace dcl with Bamford (dgw). so next gw raphina/ward-pownse and Bamford (dgw). is it worth that -4

            • 6 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            What are your thoughts about Liverpool until the end of the season?

            It's a bit of a gamble but I have the feeling they will have a very tough time recovering from that game against City. City is 15 points cealr (possibly 18) so that's the end of the title race for Liverpool and Klopp this might also make some underlying problems eventually surface?

            There's that Salah/Mané connexion which is not very efficient and is not improving. One tend to explode when the other is sidelined/benched. Klopp will probably use that time to re-build and it's possible Jota will soon become again as the main man in that team which leaves a big question mark over the appeal of Salah on a FPL POV until the end of the season. It's also posisble Klopp will put 100% of his focus on UCL now.

            Are we brave enough to go Salahless?

            1. George Agdgdgwngo
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              No chance. Salah will always be one of the highest scorers

            2. Gudjohnsen
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              I'm keeping for now. Will reassess after Leicester game.

              Salah could become Kane after gw24.

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

              What's the point though, money isn't an issue and he's still the second highest points scorer in fpl. If Liverpool improve even slightly his points potential is only going to go up

            4. CRO KLOPP
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              I think that you should look at fixtures,find 3 big hitters captains,and if Salah is not one of them,sell and upgrade team

            5. Andy_Social
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              The title is now beyond them but they can fight for 2nd place.
              I think a key difference between Pep and Jurgen is that after starting the season poorly, Pep altered his tactics, and is benefitting from Peptation. Klopp replace 2 centre-backs with 2 midfielders and has tried to keep the same tactics and has rotated insufficiently. I reckon now he will make tweaks and rest players more, which means introducing the new defenders. So I'm expecting the rest of the season involving maintaining Top 4 whilst rebuilding for the future. That means results won't be spectacular and FPL assets won't be great value for money. I've only got Salah and will probably lose him in the next few weeks.

            How would you use chips with this team, have BB,TC, WC?

            Pope, 4.0
            Mee, Cancelo, Stones (Coufal, Mitchell)
            Salah, Son, Fernandes, Grealish, Gundogan
            Antonio, Kane (Brewster)

          14. DandyDon
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            1. Best option to push Meslier on the bench next week? (happy with rest of my team). Have Mee but could double up with Pope. Other alternatives Pickford or Areola?
            2. Foden, Gundogan or DCL for captain?

            1. George Agdgdgwngo
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              Gundo

            2. Andy_Social
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              Pope is obv choice for temporary keeper.
              Despite missing a penalty, Gundo bagged 2 goals from open play - I'd stick with him. Foden less likely to play as many minutes, and DCL has one game to bag some points.

              1. DandyDon
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 8 days ago

                Yea I’d rather not captain DCL. Will obviously wait to last minute to see who’s most likely to play for city, may well be Gundo.

          15. George Agdgdgwngo
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Help with which operation get Kane is best.

            Current team
            Martinez, Johnstone
            Cancelo, Dias, awb, Dallas, Coufal
            Salah, son, Bruno, Gundo, grealish
            DCL, bamford, Antonio

            Option A
            Gw24 Coufal>Lowton
            Gw25 Johnstone > 3.9, AWB>3.8 Antonio>Kane (8 point hit)

            Option B
            Gw24 no transfers which means no Burnley
            Gw25 Johnstone>3.9
            Gw26 Bamford>Brewster & Antonio>Kane. No point hit

                2 months, 8 days ago

                Because of the point hit?

                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 8 days ago

                  Yeah basically. Transfers like Coufal -> Lowton are not worth 4 points or more

                According to the rules it's a penalty. There's not much physical contact let go in these times. But he was barely touched and went down like a sniper took him out knowing he'd win a penalty. Took it great though.

              It was disgusting to see. Loads doing it now sadly.

                It wasn't really any different to Sterling's "professionalism" to win the first penalty. It's now seen as "clever", appalling as it is.

                You don't go down, you don't get the penalty. Why should a defender be allowed to pull you back enough to take a good chance away but not enough to bring you down

              Dias knew that he fouled him,but agree that he went down like he was shot in the back
