Wilson and Son start as Newcastle host Spurs in Gameweek 8

All eyes will be on St James’ Park this afternoon as Newcastle United take on Tottenham Hotspur in the first game since the Saudi-led takeover.

Kick-off is at 16:30 BST.

The Magpies’ are given a boost by the return of talisman Callum Wilson (£7.3m), who has been out since Gameweek 3 with a thigh injury.

Jamaal Lascelles (£4.4m) also comes back into the starting XI, with Federico Fernandez (£4.4m) dropping to the bench.

As for Tottenham, they are unchanged from the side that beat Aston Villa in Gameweek 7.

That means another start for Son Heung-min (£10.1m), despite suggestions that he wouldn’t be involved due to a positive Covid-19 test.


GAMEWEEK 8 LINE-UPS

Newcastle XI: Darlow, Manquillo, Lascelles, Clark, Ritchie, Hayden, Longstaff, Willock, Joelinton, Saint-Maximin, Wilson

Subs: Gillespie, Schar, Shelvey, Lewis, Hendrick, Fernandez, Fraser, Murphy, Gayle

Spurs XI: Lloris, Royal, Romero, Dier, Reguillon, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Moura, Son, Kane

Subs: Gollini, Sanchez, Tanganga, Davies, Winks, Alli, Lo Celso, Bergwijn, Gil

      Kane is stealing them

    Lovely finish from Kane. Maybe he is back?

    Ah if only there had been some Lukaku injury doubt.

    I’d be enjoying that Kane goal

  7. Inazuma X1

    Wooooow no Son involvement in both the goals

    THAT WAS NOT THE SCRIPT!!

    Kane is so used to not scoring he didn’t believe he had

  9. Steve The Spud

    Here he comes! Time for a hatrick from the king, Ronaldo > kane nailed on!

    Kane basically telling newc im ur next shearer

  13. Rainer

    Will Bruce make the second half?

  14. KAPTAIN KANE

    Imagine going through a goal drought and then finishing like that

    1. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Cool alright!

  15. mynameisq

    Newcastle with the investment are definitely winning the league, can't see anyone in the championship stopping them

  16. Thomas Magnum
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Brought in Kane as a one week punt because didn’t rate Lukaku’s fixture. If he scores again it’ll be hard to drop him for Lukaku, even with Rom’s fixture next

    1. Lethargio Alcantara
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Lukaku will never ever score against Norwich. He's been shite so far

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        That’s what I worry, might just keep Kane and captain Salah. Will see how the rest of the game plays out but have a feeling now he’s off the mark…

      2. Nomar
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Pretty confident he will score against Norwich.

      3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        He's been absolutely shocking so far

        Only 3 goals in 5 games vs City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, Villa... next game vs. Southampton goal marginally disallowed, shot comes back off post for Chilwell's goal, and Werner steals his tap in for Chelsea's second goal. Goal disallowed in a quiet/bad game vs Brentford yesterday.

        160 goal involvements in 260 premier league appearances

        He is so shocking it's not even funny

        Norwich, Burnley, Newcastle next three too, absolutely zero chance of returns - sell, sell, sell

        1. Riverside Red
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Who do you suggest as a replacement...Fernandes, Ronaldo?

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Personally I'd definitely give him the next three

            His fixtures start cooling when Utd's start warming up - and I'm not honestly sure Ole will still be there around GW14 so a move to Bruno or CR7 might be good timing around then

            But the way things are going, a Salah-only big hitter team with a lot of mid-price dudes might be the way to go anyways

    2. Quan MisTaka
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Yeah if you dont have Lukaku, count yourself lucky

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Lukaku is lucky he has this fixture run. If he didn’t who would pay so much for a guy likely not on pens, might be rotated and plays for a relatively low scoring side

        1. Quan MisTaka
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Hes a trap for sure. Wont massively (or at all) outscore other players at lower price point.

          Vardy
          Wilson
          Antonio
          DCL

          Will be around the same amount of points come the end

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Definitely agree. The key will be jumping on the guys price between 7-8.6 at the right times (Wilson whilst fit, DCL when he goes on his signature goal runs) theres already a case for Salah perma captain anyways so that’ll be one less headache. The question will be whether to bring in United players when they go on their nice fixture run or if that’ll be a congested fixture trap

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Nice one!

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Thank you, Kaptain. Here’s to more Kane goals to come!

    4. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

      Both are playing for defensive teams

      Too expensive

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I know it’s said every year, but there may soon be a case for a front 3 of players priced between 7-8.5. Or maybe 2 of those plus Vardy

        1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          I’m going cheap myself

          Lukaku can score v Norwich but Chelsea are not free scoring and Kane tends to drop deep too often

          Ronaldo fixtures are bad. Only one possibly I’d consider is vardy but again he’s hot and cold

          Much better value in midfield with the likes of kdb and mane

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            I like that idea a lot also. As I said above there’s the case for Salah perma captain so no real need for the expensive attack if you’re unlikely to C them. KDB/Mane still very nice differentials (albeit expensive) Lukaku just felt like a follow the crowd pick and the high ownership made him hard to ignore for a lot of people

        2. mynameisq
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Toney Vardy DCL

          1. Milkman Bruno
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Toney, Antonio and Wilson could be on the cards for me next gw

              1. sandman58
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Salah Raphina Son Mbuemo
                Antonio Vardy Jimenez

                1. sandman58
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  4 of those take pens

    5. Tango74
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Who should I priorities?

      Mount to raphina or

      Toney or Antonio for Wilson ?

      1. SINGH
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Wilson

      2. Quan MisTaka
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        dont get rid of toney?

        1. Tango74
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Well Antonio fixtures turn ?

          West Ham look. Weak now

          1. Quan MisTaka
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Brentford and everton are diffcult games. I'd give antonio one more game. Hes a proven asset. Moving to wilson seems sideways and point chasing.

            But if your game is to move and gamble, then you do you

      3. FourLokoLeipzig
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Neither. Wilson seems a downgrade on Toney / Antonio, and Mount should do well the next few games so I’d find another way to get Raph

    6. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Ronaldo ➡ Kane

    7. DycheDycheBaby
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Still crazy to think that's his first PL goal this season.

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 7 Years

        Reflected in his super low ownership

    8. dshv

      Thank you for all your comments about Son, i removed him from WC now have to bring him somehow

      1. Freshy

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Who did you pick instead?

        It wasn't done with malicious intent.

        1. dshv
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Foden and saka .. otherwise was son and fodder

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Could work out well.

            Saka is a good pick too.

      3. Utopsis
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        OK

      4. RedRo
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Be a big boy and pick your own team then

        Lukaku really trolled all of us, Callum wilson has outscored him in like 10 mins of gametime 😛

        1. TheTinman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Wilson is my differential. Need another goal

      6. SINGH
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        KANE CAPTAIN

        SUIIIIIIIII

      7. Inazuma X1
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Newcastle to sign Kane for 150m

        1. Nomar
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Can afford it and, unlike City, probably be so desperate that they'd pay Spurs the asking price straight up.
