How Spurs’ FPL assets fared in their final match before Double Gameweek 32

Tottenham Hotspur 1-3 Manchester United

How Spurs' FPL assets fared in their final match before Double Gameweek 32
  • Goals: Son Heung-min | Fred, Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood
  • Assists: Lucas Moura | Cavani, Greenwood
  • Bonus: Cavani x3, Greenwood x2, Fred x1

There wasn’t a huge amount to cheer from a Fantasy Premier League perspective in north London on Sunday afternoon.

Blanks for Harry Kane (£11.7m), Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m), Luke Shaw (£5.3m) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.7m) meant that four of the five FPL players with double-digit ownerships in the clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium didn’t deliver anything more than appearance points.

Only Son Heung-min (£9.4m) from this quintet emerged from the game with anything meaningful, popping up with his first goal since Gameweek 23.

So where does Sunday’s defeat leave Spurs assets ahead of Double Gameweek 32?

SON SHINES

How Spurs' FPL assets fared in their final match before Double Gameweek 32 5

For many Fantasy bosses, the Kane and Son double-up will be the bare minimum in Double Gameweek 32.

Looking at top 10k ownership figures as a better gauge of popularity among ‘active’ managers, that combination already features in over half of the leading squads (as of Gameweek 31).


With Son the third most-bought player of Gameweek 32 at the time of writing, that percentage will only increase further ahead of Friday’s deadline.

Most of us will be handing the armband to Kane this week and Sunday’s blank in a limp collective showing (not the first one over the last month) won’t have changed our minds either way.

As for Son, any managers sitting on the fence regarding his appeal for the Everton/Southampton double-header may have had their arms twisted after his seven-game goal drought ended.

TREBLE DOUBLE

How Spurs' FPL assets fared in their final match before Double Gameweek 32 6

The burning question remains: what of the Spurs triple-up and who are the leading candidates for inclusion in our squads?

Son and Kane aside, not one of the Lilywhites’ other assets is presently owned by 10% or more managers within the top 10k – so a well-chosen differential has the capacity to aid in the ongoing push for a green arrow, although may only add to the headaches in Gameweek 33 for those navigating that blank without a chip.


Ben Davies’ (£4.5m) ongoing injury woes will aid Sergio Reguilon‘s (£5.5m) chances of starting both Gameweek 32 fixtures but it was far from a convincing audition for Spurs’ defensive assets at the weekend, with another three goals flying past Hugo Lloris (£5.6m).

Jose Mourinho’s side have allowed nine big chances and 26 shots in the box to be conceded across their last two matches, totals worse than all other Premier League clubs bar Crystal Palace.

The unsettled nature of the backline has no doubt not helped, with Davinson Sanchez (£5.2m) underpinning previous good form with a horror show against Newcastle, a rusty Eric Dier (£4.6m) brought in from the cold this weekend and Toby Alderweireld (£5.4m) seemingly the latest player to join the long list of names in his manager’s bad books.

Rookie Joe Rodon (£5.0m), indeed, has suddenly become the mainstay at the back after three successive Premier League starts.

Further forward, Lucas Moura (£6.6m) merits a mention.

A veritable teacher’s pet among the throng of bodies on Mourinho’s naughty step, Lucas has started nine of Spurs’ last ten league games and appeared in the other match as a substitute.

He has six attacking returns in that time (a respectable goal involvement of 35%), with his latest contribution being the assist for Son’s strike on Sunday.

The goals don’t look likely to flow, it must be said, as he has mustered only eight shots in those ten appearances – just two more than bit-part full-back Serge Aurier (£5.2m).

A total of 10 key passes from Gameweek 23 onwards matches what Kane has produced but still falls eight short of Son’s total.

BALEING OUT

How Spurs' FPL assets fared in their final match before Double Gameweek 32 2

There’s one key name we haven’t yet mentioned in this piece: Gareth Bale (£9.2m), who was benched for the third straight Premier League match.

His total pitch-time over the last three Gameweeks comes to ten minutes and despite the fact that his team have a double-header coming up, he has already been moved on by a further 50,000+ Fantasy managers ahead of Friday’s deadline – that takes his total number of sales over the last three Gameweeks to somewhere in the region of 800,000.

What we should mention at this point is Spurs’ involvement in the EFL Cup final, a game which falls four days after the clash with Southampton.

The Lilywhites are just about still in the hunt for a top-four spot but Mourinho will surely covet face-saving silverware and there is the possibility that, while players such as Lucas could have minutes managed ahead of that cup final with Manchester City, the likes of Bale and Erik Lamela (£5.7m) could feature against the porous Saints.

RED ALERT

How Spurs' FPL assets fared in their final match before Double Gameweek 32 3

Back to Sunday’s action and switching attention to United, Edinson Cavani (£7.8m) and Mason Greenwood (£7.0m) both registered two attacking returns apiece.

Greenwood has quietly racked up 10 shots in the box over his last six appearances, a total beaten by just four other FPL midfielders and seven more than Fernandes has managed – although the fact that the youngster was only a 72nd-minute substitute in this clash underscores the rotation risk.

Cavani’s chances of a prolonged run in the team have been boosted by a potentially season-ending injury to Anthony Martial (£8.0m), meanwhile.

Now nine points clear of fifth place and surely out of their cross-city rivals’ reach, there is little left to play for on the domestic front for the Red Devils.

Continued involvement in the Europa League is therefore something to consider when assessing rotation risk, with continental ties falling either side of Premier League matches in Gameweeks 32-35.

SLAB ON WIRE

Those who pay attention to our Suspension Tightrope widget on our homepage will have noticed that only one Premier League player sits precariously positioned on nine yellow cards: Harry Maguire (£5.5m).

Another caution for the England international against Burnley on Saturday will mean that he misses both Gameweeks 33 and 34, as collecting 10 bookings results in a two-match ban.

With Leeds and Liverpool providing the opposition in those two games and Maguire out of danger if he manages to avoid a booking against the Clarets, it’ll be interesting to see if Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is tempted to tactically rest a defender who has been ever-present both this season and last.


Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris, Aurier, Rodon, Dier, Reguilon, Højbjerg, Ndombele (Lamela 78), Lo Celso (Sissoko 61), Lucas (Bale 82), Kane, Son.

Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw, Fred, McTominay, Rashford (Greenwood 72), Pogba, Fernandes (Matic 90), Cavani.

    Any news on Maddison? I guess Rodgers can't afford to drop one of his key players if they are about to fight for top4?

    1. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      26 days, 18 hours ago

      No news but you're right, if he had played we can't say for sure they would have won but I think they would have

      Will play the next game I think

  3. Halftime Lemon

    Any word if Son will be ok for the DGW after having his face smashed in yesterday

    1. RamboRN
      • 9 Years

      Might need one of those zorro masks

    2. Biggsy

      That kind of violent challenge almost certainly looking at a serious eyebrow strain or a dislocated eyelash. 4 - 6 weeks minimum

    3. Indpush
      • 3 Years
      26 days, 18 hours ago

      Better wait til just before deadline

      The latest news is that he has flown back to South Korea to get an ancient spiritual Asian treatment. The doctors in England could not diagnose the mystery ailment.

      Nice take. Wish we did the same when Kane dives.

      1. AfriKan OddLegZ
        • 4 Years
        26 days, 17 hours ago

        Soo this ^

  4. nicecat
    • 4 Years
    26 days, 19 hours ago

    1st with +50 in ML, 1FT
    Obvious move is Sterling > Son.
    Is it worth going -4 to upgrade Davis to 6.4FWD and activate BBoost or wait it out for a future GW?

    1. Tinkermania
      • 1 Year
      26 days, 18 hours ago

      You can't be asking for BB ideas without posting your team surely. You don't want 100% guesswork.

      1. nicecat
        • 4 Years
        26 days, 18 hours ago

        Oh, you're right. I think it's pretty BB-able team apart from Davis.

        Leno . Forster
        Rudiger . Shaw . Holding . Coady . Phillips
        Gundo . Bruno . Salah . Jota . Sterling (> Son)
        Kane . Ihenacho . Davis (> ?)

        1. AfriKan OddLegZ
          • 4 Years
          26 days, 17 hours ago

          Go for it pal

  5. HD7
    • 4 Years
    26 days, 18 hours ago

    Mates, Im in a big struggle so would appreciate the help here

    Mendy
    Fofana, Rudiger, Holding
    Salah), Bruno, Gundo, Jota, Neto
    Kane, Vardy

    Forster, Masuaku, Philips, Davis

    Plan was to do Gundo to Son for next GW

    Plan was to only do Gundo to Son for next GW but I waited so now Im 0.1 short...

    A) Combine it with Vardy to Nacho (-4)
    B) Add also Neto to Lingard (-8)
    C) Keep Vardy

    1. Zen Arcade
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      26 days, 18 hours ago

      The way you’ve written the options sounds like something from a menu.

      Combine it with curly fries for 40p. Add cheese fries for 80p.

      1. HD7
        • 4 Years
        26 days, 18 hours ago

        Thanks for your empathy and compassion 😀

      2. Jonny HOW SON?
        • 6 Years
        26 days, 18 hours ago

        lol

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      26 days, 18 hours ago

      A is too sideways for a hit.

      I'd do Gundo to Son and maybe B - if you think of it as -4 for both moves it'll certainly pay off

      1. HD7
        • 4 Years
        26 days, 18 hours ago

        I dont have money to do only Gundo to Son. Missed the Gundo fall yesterday

        1. Indpush
          • 3 Years
          26 days, 18 hours ago

          B
          Totts and Lcsters fixtures really good for offence (Vardy not doing it but Nacho is), Lingard crucial for WH and aside from Chelsea, great fixtures.

          Regarding future transfers, unless injuries pop up, you won't need to dump any of the incoming players in this plan.

    3. Echoes
        26 days, 18 hours ago

        I'm bringing in Vardy. So, I'd say C

    4. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      26 days, 18 hours ago

      Bruno or Salah >> Son? 1FT, 0.1itb.
      Will lose value in Bruno.
      Will play BB.

      Mendy
      TAA. Rudiger. Holding
      Salah. Bruno. Lingard. Jota. Gundog
      Kane. Iheanacho
      (Forster, DCL, Coady, Shaw)

      1. tomasjj
        • 6 Years
        26 days, 18 hours ago

        Tough one.
        What does your gut say? Go with that.

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        26 days, 18 hours ago

        Your score prediction for Leeds Liverpool and Man U Burnley should help.

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          26 days, 18 hours ago

          Both should win, perhaps Leeds are in better form than Burnley

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            26 days, 18 hours ago

            BTW - you not worried about Gundogan missing the Villa game with it being sandwiched between the Chelsea cup semi and the Carabo cup final?

            1. RAFA THE GAFFA
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              26 days, 18 hours ago

              Yeah. One to monitor I think. Will make the bench boost half worthless if so. Hope he gets benched for the semi

            2. RAFA THE GAFFA
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              26 days, 18 hours ago

              I guess I could use the Bruno/Salah spare money for Son to upgrade him for -4? Greenwood, mount, Maddison etc

              1. Miguel Sanchez
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                26 days, 17 hours ago

                Am looking at those three myself (plus Jota who I don't have)

    5. Mr Ozil
      • 6 Years
      26 days, 18 hours ago

      What to do with Gundogan?

      Can't see anyone tempting in the 5.8/5.9 price bracket

      1. tomasjj
        • 6 Years
        26 days, 18 hours ago

        I moved him, pep and that.

        There is Neto, and Saka if fit.
        But quite slim pickings. Until Jota and Lingard.

        1. Mr Ozil
          • 6 Years
          26 days, 18 hours ago

          have Jota already, Lingard is tempting but Can't afford unless its for a -4

          1. tomasjj
            • 6 Years
            26 days, 18 hours ago

            Right. I would get another player I can trust to start though.

            Bowen, JWP, Trossard, Raphina, Pereira, Soucek.

            That is the kind of territory - not bad though.

            JWP has an extra game at home to CP too.

            1. circusmonkey
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              26 days, 17 hours ago

              If Neto is noto then I will go back to Soucek but was hoping to save this week.

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        26 days, 18 hours ago

        Am selling for someone around the 7.1 mark

        Not sure what the best options are at 5.9 now that Neto got injured. JWP?

    6. Cheeto__Bandito
        26 days, 18 hours ago

        Is Reguilon still a decent pick? or Tottenham a no go currently

        1. mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          26 days, 18 hours ago

          Been utter crap since getting him, one of my worst transfers in. Will keep for the double and then bin instantly

          1. Cheeto__Bandito
              26 days, 18 hours ago

              May just go coady then

            Cresswell to TAA? Or Auba to Salah? Which one should I do with my FT please?! (Doing both would entail a -8)

            1. Reece’s Pieces
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              26 days, 18 hours ago

              Auba to Salah seems better overall

            2. Indpush
              • 3 Years
              26 days, 18 hours ago

              Auba to Salah

            If anyone lives near Lewis Dunk please can you block up his front door so he can’t get to the game tonight and I get Dallas 17pts off the bench?!

            1. mynameisq
              • 7 Years
              26 days, 18 hours ago

              While you're there can you also do the same to Joel Veltman please

                • 10 Years
                26 days, 18 hours ago

                I need Veltman or DCL to miss tonight to get those 17points... all the way from 3rd bench :0

                I know it is Brighton but I doubt they live together.

              That would work for me! But only if someone did the same to Matt Targett.

            3. Echoes
                26 days, 18 hours ago

                Lock up Dan Burn as well while you're at it.

              Anyone considering doing Son to Salah in GW33 or for another player?

                • 7 Years
                26 days, 18 hours ago

                Would you get him straight back for Sheffield and Leeds though

                  No I'm thinking Salah and Pool are a fighting harder than Spurs so only going with Kane.
                  Jose has a habit of losing the dressing room.

                26 days, 18 hours ago

                My current plan is saving two transfers and going Kane > Vardy, and then Bruno and Davis to Kane and fodder for free in 34, keeping Son. If you have Bruno, I would go Bruno to Salah instead and keep Son for Sheffield.

              Play one
              A) Rudiger - it's Brighton, but they've found some goals of late, also means double up with Mendy
              B) HOLDing - Fulham at home, another clean sheet for Arsenal?
              C) Fofana - play him, it's still West Brom, or, don't play him it's West Brom?

                  Thanks, but that goal, Bowen to Lingard, is something that worries me, that long ball is right from Big Sam's textbook.

                    I think Brighton will score. Arsenal are poor at defending. A Mitrovic in place of McGoldrick last night would have scored.

                  Fofana is last on my list haha

                  Rudiger > Holding > Fofana.

                    Hahaha! I seriously think all three will concede. Have a feeling that Fofana has the least chance.

                      I think Leicester defense is the worst and West Brom did just hit 5 past Chelsea and looked good value for all 5. So no, I don't agree.

                      But he's certainly not a bad option on paper.

              Pick one. I have Maddison and Kane.

              A) Gundo + DCL to Son + Iheanacho for -4
              B) Gundo + Raph to Moura + Lingard for -4
              C) Gundo to Lingard

                Considering Son has double gameweek, and Gundogan probably won't play in 34, after two in a row, Dortmund and Chelsea, A. There could be potential to do -8 for all three possibly.

              Bale's 8 minutes 1 pointer stopped Dallas coming in off the bench.

              Best defender up to 4.6M (excluding Phillips)? Holding, Coufal? Thinking Holding due to fixtures, but is he nailed?

                    Me.

                    Sold him on WC.

                    Can't see him playing 3 games in a week and surely Mourinho will target the cup final now.

                    I've seen this too many times before, when people go mad for DGWs and then get frustrated when top players get rested for one of the two fixtures.

                  Off the back of a disastrous GW, 37 points so far & Dallas 3rd sub (not to come on), I require your assistance going forward. Please kindly advice what to do with my 2 FTs or WC available if necessary. Team is as follows:

                  Martinez (Sanchez)
                  Dias / Digne / Azpi (Dallas / Lowton)
                  Salah / Mount / Son / Gundo (Raphinha)
                  Kane / Bam / DCL

                    You’re like me. Dias (or Digne) and DCL for Trent and Nacho seem like strong moves

                    I think I would wildcard.

                  What do you think for -4:

                  Cresswell or Dias to Trent

                  DCL to Nacho

                    None nailed - even Mount will probably miss another game or two before the season is out

                      Why does this matter if you have a full bench? It should embolden you to take some risks. I took the risks on City this week which didn't work, but I knew I had good cover on the bench and so it proved where I got 15 points off the bench (Son and Holding).

                      We've seen that Pulisic and Havertz have some big double digit scores in their locker. Chasing that upside is worth it imo.

                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                        26 days, 18 hours ago

                        I think the risk is that they tend to come on if they don't start so it doesn't matter if you have a full bench.

                        Havertz does look a great option now and has great stats but is a touch too expensive compared to some of the options you can have for 1m less.

                          Yes, if I downgrade Son. I may go without Salah this week and plan to buy next week when Spurs blank. This would also give me cash to upgrade Vydra at a later date (Adams, Antonio, Bamford, etc).

                        Sideways but could be good if chasing

                          I am absolutely chasing.

                        Could be genius. Considering something similar myself (see below).

                          Your moves are +1 ahead of mine there: Gundo to GW and then Bruno to Salah is a potential masterstroke!

                      Already done Antonio > Nacho. Best move here for a -4? Pretty much the whole back line can leave.

                      A. Dias > TAA
                      B. Digne > TAA
                      C. Cresswell > TAA
                      D. Targett > TAA
                      E. Gundo > Maddison
                      F. Gundo > Greenwood (Bruno > Salah later)
                      G. Something else

                      Martinez
                      Dias, Digne, Cresswell
                      Bruno, Lingard, Son, Jota
                      Iheanacho, Bamford, Kane (TC)

                      Subs: Sanchez, Gundo, Targett, Struijk

                        E and play instead of Bamford
