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.

    anyone based in leeds? Looks like lots of heavy snow forecast over the day, any chance the game is at risk?

    1. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      we hope for heavy heavy snow

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

      Happy either way, bamford and raphina can do damage and if game is off I can get DCL off the bench

    3. Dosh
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I'd prefer the game to go ahead considering the whole world has DCL coming off the bench!

    4. Boly Would
      • 4 Years

      Just started very lightly snowing in north Leeds...

      1. Boly Would
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        ...and it's stopped again

    5. Jellyfish
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      As a Bamford owner with Gundo first on my bench I would be very happy for a big dump of the white stuff up there

    6. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Heavy snow fall forecast at 2 pm then 4 pm again.

      I have colleagues in Leeds city centre so will ask them this afternoon!

  2. Dele
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    TC Kane in 26 looking very tempting

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

      All but locked in for me

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

      Spurs double gw?

    3. Mweene
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Yeah.

      My bench will likely be McCarthy and 3 Leeds players so wondering whether to BB or TC in 26.

    4. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      After Sane and Mane fiasco I'm reluctant to TC another ...ane.

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Kane was the first one to start it for me.
        Maybe it ends with him !

    5. jammie26
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Yep I'm doing Kane TC in 26.

    6. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Apologies guys, haven't been able to get on for a while...

      What's the latest thinking for all chips guys?

      Could it be something like:

      WC 25
      BB 26
      FH 29
      TC whenever

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        That's my plan.

      2. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        That is a perfectly fine strategy. Alternatively (depending on your team of course), you could navigate the upcoming weeks with FTs, have a good squad in 26 for BB. Then dead-end 29 and WC out of it in 30. TC whenever

        1. ameisin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          This is my plan as I've already used my FH.

          Should be able to get 12-13 DGW players for a BB in 26, then build towards 7-8 starters in BGW29, before wildcarding in 30.

      3. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        That about sums it up, yes

      4. Sir Edo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Maybe you can use your BB without using WC? If not, it seems like an ok stategy.. 🙂

      5. Champ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks a lot guys!

      6. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Nail on the head.

        Free hit blank game week 29 is key for me.

      7. OptimusBlack
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Is GW 29 Fuxtures updated ?

    7. Dosh
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Need a 3rd City player. Already own Gundo and Cancelo. Best option?

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

        Dias or Foden

        1. Mweene
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Why Dias over Stones? He looks a goal threat and cheaper.

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

            Nailed and does have goal threat himself, only a matter of time before he bags one or two

            1. Mweene
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Is there not an argument that Stones has had his rest so Dias will be next?

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

                If the points gap keeps increasing for city then yes for sure champions League and cup finals is what dias would get rested for but in general he'll play more than stones

              2. jomikijiq
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 8 days ago

                Nah, Dias is the no1 CB in the team right now and I'm pretty sure he will have his rest in FA Cup this week. Expect Garcia & Laporte pairing

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

        Ederson, Dias, Foden or Sterling depending on team structure, transfers and money itb

      3. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        A lot depends on how your team is structured. I think either Dias or Raz as best 3rd City options to own

      4. aleksaa2
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Dias

      5. LT10
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Wait for FA Cup line up in midweek. Might provide some clues to who is more likely to play both games.

    8. sirmorbach
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Any help would me much appreciated:

      Pope
      Dias, Stones, Digne, Cresswell
      Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Gündogan
      DCL, Antonio

      Martinez, Watkins, Dallas / Soucek

      Can I afford to hold my ft? Maybe Watkins to Bamford? Stones to Cancelo? (I'm willing to keep Soucek, I guess)

      1. aleksaa2
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Hold it, you have enough dgw players for the gw24, reassess in gw25

        1. sirmorbach
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Appreciate it, mate!

      2. riot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        In a similar position and holding, you don't need to bring in a DGWer if that transfer will be used later for a different blank/DGW

        1. sirmorbach
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Cheers, mate!

      Morning all!!! So how many off is on here hoping for a monster downpour of snow in Leeds??!! Haha DCL winking and playing the banjo at us from the comfort of the first sub position!!! Hehe

        DCL first on bench for many 😀

          Not in my mini league mate!! All below and started him!! I always play 3-4-3 and the one week if I 3-5-2 it bites me in on the nose!!! Haha all those goals on the bench for Soucek and then I play him and benched DCL and you know how that story ended!! Grrrrr haha

      3. ZAMUNDA
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Well, Leeds game cancelation means I end up with 90 points this Gameweek.

    10. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Quite impressive really the case of Gundo. Finished the gameweek on 13pts when he was on a -1 at HT. Just stands to show that when people comment "captain fail" at half-time of games when their captain has done nothing so far, isn't necessarily the end of it. A lot can change in the other 45 mins of a game

    11. CrouchDown
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Why would the game be called off? There's no fans

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        I think we are all hoping for the pitch to be covered in snow and unusable! Not going to happen of course but hope dies last

        1. Mweene
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Speak for yourself!

          I have Dallas and Bamford with Stones and Lowton on the bench.

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

        Conditions for players re visibility or amount of snow

        Unlikely

      3. aleksaa2
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Because people want their bench points, it's the only reason.

      4. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        It seems that some on here think that Leeds stadium doesn't have undersoil heating 😉

    12. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Do Spurs have a double gw in 26?

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Not confirmed, but likely. See how the FA cup games pan out this week

    13. Atimis
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Can we talk about Burnley defs?

      Don't wanna get Pope so which one would you go for? Is Mee really the best option?

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Honestly, a lot depends on your upcoming plans I think and whether you will WC in 25 in prep for 26. I personally am looking at Lowton as a cheaper alternative since I will try to navigate 26 with FTs and need the funds. Most likely, I will go for no Burnley defence this week and ride it out.

      2. aleksaa2
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        The first rule about Fantasy Football Scout is you don't talk about Burnley defs. The second rule about Fantasy Football Scout is you don't talk about Burnley defs.

      3. Stimps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Lowton... Cheap and nailed

    14. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Which one scores more in 25:

      A) Pope Son Maddison
      B) Martinez Salah Mee

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Think B

    15. Aster
        3 months, 8 days ago

        What would you do here?

        2 FT, 0.7 itb

        De Gea (McCarthy)

        Cancelo-Dias-Shaw (Coufal, Dallas)

        Son-Saka-Sterling-Bruno (Souchek)

        Antonio-Bamford-DCL

        Was thinking Dias to Mee and maybe Son to Gundogan or Foden?

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Not keen on that. You will want Son in the upcoming fixtures after City, especially with their likely double in 26. I also fancy City to keep a CS against Spurs this week

        What people seem not to realise... if you´re taking a hit to bring in DGW players you have to add the cost of the hit to the opportunity cost of another transfer. What is the opportunity cost of another transfer? The points the player you´re transfering out or benching for will earn. From what I have seen there are loads of squads with loads of playable assets, with great fixtures. Transfering Antonio out for DCL when Antonio is playing SHU and DCL playing 2 really strong defenses? Bringing in Pope and benching De Gea or MArtinez both playing WBA and BHA? Grealish out for Foden, a clear rotation risk player? Bringing in Areola? Really? For me, 3 City players are more than enough. BUR has concede in the last 4 matches and has 2 clean sheets in the last 10 (one vs LIV) and EVE has really tough fixtures for their attacking assets. The only player I would consider is Digne, but only with the outlook going forward.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Well said

        2. Joey Tribbiani
            3 months, 8 days ago

            So you're saying Burnley are due cleansheets, okay got it 🙂

            1. El Presidente
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Thats one way of looking at it I suppose... 🙂

          • Aster
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Excellent post.

              The question is: Which 3 City assets?

              I have Dias, Cancelo and Sterling, but can see them conceding at least once in this DGW.

              1. El Presidente
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 8 days ago

                I think Gundo & Sterling for sure. Sterling yesterday was City´s captain and Pep started the post match PC praising "his captain" for the incredible match and leadership. Fode for example might play as well but again, with an incredible performance from him Pep still has something to say about his game and improvement etc. And then another defensive asset. I think this is my route, but 2 def + Gundo/Sterling might be good as well.

            • Jellyfish
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Yep agree - I think following the herd and fomo is a factor also (and I don't mean that in a condescending way)

            • Baines on Toast...
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Personally I got hit hard by not gambling on Antonio or Justin in the last double, and I'd like to rectify that. The chance of a move paying off in a double is much higher.

              1. El Presidente
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year

                Yeah, but as you´ve just said its a gamble. One thing is taking a hit (or two) for taking out injured players or eventually ones on the verge of starting a really tough run of fixtures, but to replace players with form & a great fixture (Antonio for example) its just doesnt make sense. Can it pay up in the end? Yes, ofc but most of the times, wont.

              To some degree, it more depends on what your plan with the WC is and how much of a long term transfer the one for a hit is. Yes, any of these players can outscore the dgw ones, won't be the first and certainly won't be the last time. But if in for example 5/6 gameweeks your dgw player outscore the sgw player you transfered out by more than four points, it's a good transfer.

                Agree, definitely the way you´re navigating DGW26 plays an important part in your decision making.

              It really depends on your team. Maybe dead end in 29 and WC30 using a couple of chips in 24 and 26

            People talking of doubles in GW 26. How will extra games be generated? Is it from yet to be rearranged games that were postponed earlier in the season? Or is there an extra source of fixtures from future game weeks?

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

              Games that were cancelled earlier and if they go through in the fa cup then they'll miss gameweek 29 so those fixtures get put into 26

              1. Tambling5
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 8 days ago

                Right. So only if both of the teams playing in a Gw29 match get through to the 5th round, will there be a possibility of it being brought forward to GW26?

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

                  Even if one team from that 29 fixture goes through, because who else would they play? Unless we see massive upsets and all premier League teams get knocked out, not even possible in most cases as it's an all premier League tie so someone has to go through

            Does this make sense with no FH?

            GW25: Navigate 11 DGWers with FTs and TC Kane
            GW29: Dead end with FTs
            GW30: Use WC
            GWx: Use BB for future DGW

            1. Stormbringer22
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 8 days ago

              I think 26 will likely be the last big DGW, so arguably the best time to use the BB. Having said that, BB a single gameweek with decent fixtures can work just as well in some cases

            2. No Professionals
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              sure. guess it depends what gives more bonus in 26, BB or TC.

              probably go with the TC myself as easier to hold WC.

              I’m looking at BB24, TC26 and WC30. Means I can dead end 29

                I'm showing my ignorance, but what does "dead end" mean?

            A) Holding to Lowton (already have Mee)
            B) Holding to Digne
            C) Barnes to Rodriguez
            D) McGoldrick to Richarlison (will have DCL)

            I'm planning on WC in GW25 so I can afford to take a bit of a punt this week like double Burnley defence or 2 Everton attackers. Thanks

            Might use BB 24 so I can get Salah, Bruno, Kane and Son all in my team after. Dropping 1 to bench boost could turn out very bad

              I don't understand why they didn't bring a back up striker in the January transfer window. Moyes is killing him with the game time, last 20 minutes against Fulham he looked like a corpse playing football.

              I’m tempted to play Coufal over him.. He got me the points I was after so I’m probably going to bring in Watkins over him for 26

                Yeah, if he's rested that would be good. I think I'd sell if he plays 90 vs. Man Utd though.

            Arsenal, City, Leicester, Chelsea, Tottenham, United, all play european games between Gameweek 25 and 26 which makes me think activating your WC in 25 with the propect of Bench boosting in 26 is very very tricky. Rotation will be big and injury risks/fatigue quite present too.

            1. ivantys
                3 months, 8 days ago

                City will be a problem here, the rest should be fine. No one will buy Arsenal players as they have no DGW. Chelsea's ones aren't worth buying too due to tough fixtures and nobody being nailed. Spurs will play 2nd team in UEL. Leicester and United I only have 1 player each.

                Not intrested in Arsenal or Chelsea at all for the double.

                Also I cant afford to BB City, United, Spurs & Leicester players as they cost so much they would anyways be a part of my starting 11.

                BB is used for the cheaper players who wont have European games and will start both games.

              A.
              24 - Chilwell to Lowton
              25 - Antonio to Ings
              26 - DCL to Kane

              B.
              24 - Chilwell to Cancelo
              25 - Antonio to Adams
              26 - DCL to Kane
