Spurs v Leeds team news: Gelhardt starts as Raphinha and Rodrigo miss out

Sunday’s Premier League action continues in north London as Tottenham Hotspur host Leeds United.

Kick-off is at 16:30 BST.

Antonio Conte makes two changes to his starting XI, with Japhet Tanganga (£4.3m) and Harry Winks (£4.4m) coming in for Cristian Romero (£4.9m) and Oliver Skipp (£4.5m), who miss out through injury and suspension respectively.

Harry Kane (£12.2m), fresh from scoring seven goals in two games for England, leads the line and will be flanked by Son Heung-min (£10.4m) and Lucas Moura (£6.4m) in a 3-4-3 formation.

For Leeds, Raphinha (£6.7m) is ill and Rodrigo (£6.3m) has a minor foot injury. As a result, Joe Gelhardt (£4.5m) makes his first Premier League start, while Mateusz Klich (£5.4m) will be deployed in the more advanced midfield role.

Patrick Bamford (£7.7m), Luke Ayling (£4.3m), Jamie Shackleton (£4.5m) and Robin Koch (£4.3m) all remain out.

    This is the second time this season Dennis comes off from the bench with a huge haul and makes my gw wonderful! Lucky me!

    What is your team structure plan for December?

    I was thinking getting Vardy to Ronaldo and have something like

    Ramsdale
    Trent Chilwell James Mitchell/Dier/Tomiyasu
    Salah Raph Cornet ESR
    Kane Ronaldo

    But last GWs are trying to make me prefer Cancelo and have only one Premium striker... Thoughts?

      Very few likely to have 2 expensive forwards.

  3. Tmel
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Best route to Jota?

    a) Foden > Jota
    b) Mbuemo & Antonio > Jota & Pukki (-4)

    1. Lord Flashheart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      of those two, A

      1. Tmel
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Yes but ideally would want Jota for that game at home to Southampton

      not a fan of losing Antonio unless its part of a hokey-cokey. even then thats a TV hit of 0.3m or so.
      his fixtures from GW18 onwards are sick

    Well at least we know Mo is the perma cap for the near future.

    Foden will be sold by masses and then the hauls incoming, FPL? 😆

      that tends to be the game works

    As a Kane owner, I'm pretty content after that game. He looked much sharper/fitter. Could have scored. Spurs will improve, the more time Conte spends with them. He has hardly had any time with the first teamers

    1. Art Vandelay
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yep, disappointed with no return but he had a few chances.

      Conte has had very little time with them because of the IB and the change in the 2nd half was dramatic. If they start games with that intensity the points should flow over the coming GWs.

      1. internal error
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Exactly. I think ppl are overreacting with any criticism.

    2. Free Hat
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Dont agree with the sharper fitter argument, but do agree he came in some promising positions.

      1. internal error
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Even that run at half way line when he twisted and turned two defenders. He wasn't doing that all season. His passing was good in the first half and he was lurking in the box waiting for that final pass

    3. maglia rosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Certainly more desire and effort in the 2nd half, for the life of me i don't get why teams don't simply start like that 😛
      Pretty inevitable that Conte would get a tune out of previously dire performances too. On an fpl level am glad my reasoning to bring in Harrold seems to be well placed so no biggie about the blank today. As a side note, worth having Spurs assets just for the Lol's at how he breaths winning and seeing the players react as such. Quite refreshing actually if i might say 😆

        Ha. It is refreshing to see that. Expecting the 2nd half to be a spring board for them. Lucas is interesting me but apparently spurs will turn to a 3-5-2 soon

  8. Coaly
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Best moves with 2FT?

    a) Antonio Omobamidele to Denis TAA
    b) Vardy Semedo to Kane Dier

    Spurs look poor but have good fixtures and may turn it around under Conte?

  9. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Duffy + Mbuemo > James + Bissouma for free?

    Ramsdale Foster
    TAA Cancelo Rudi Duffy Livra
    Mo Gallagher Raphinha Foden Mbuemo
    Vardy Jimenez Antonio

  10. Pukki Party
    • 4 Years

    Those who watched please describe Son and Kanes games with a few words, i would appreciate it.

    1. Qaiss
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      A player who signed a new contract. A player who wants to leave.
      Both will score goals over the next 3.

    2. Lord Flashheart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      son - involved, but not threatening
      kane - got into positions, but was not sharp with shot or with passing. at least got into postions.

      1. Free Hat
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Agree with this

    3. internal error
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I thought Son didn't play all that well. But He had a decent shot from about 20 yards that went wide and nearly got lucky with a deflection off a cross. Kane I thought was good in real terms. Good movement and full of running. He should have scored but shot was saved then hit the post. He then had another shot which was difficult to score given he has a defender infront and ball caught under his feet, but promising that he got the shot off.

    4. RUN DCL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Looks like it will take time but the second half was promising. I wouldn’t invest just yet personally. Saying this as a Son owner.

    5. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years

      Thanks guys for the input

  11. BenSvnt
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    Kane is slower than me and I'm 58

  12. Firminoooo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Chilwell, Vardy and Havertz to Reguilon, Kane and Jota (-4) went ok. 1 point won.

  13. chaser123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    What are you doing with Antonio?

    1. gart888
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Benching.

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I wonder whether to sell him to fund Jota. If I do Antonio to Dennis, I can upgrade Raph to Jota for free and still have money itb to upgrade Livra to almost anyone worth getting. I could downgrade Toney, but he could be handy to have during festive period. Guaranteed 2 pts and perhaps lucky goal when needed.

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Yeh I’m thinking the same….

        I could get to quite a nice 442 with a couple of transfers:

        Ramsdale
        TAA Cancelo James Rudiger
        Salah Foden Raphinha Jota
        Kane Jimenez

        (Foster Livramento Brownhill Davis)

        1. chaser123
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          (Those transfers would be Normann and Antonio to Jota and Davis)

    3. Free Hat
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Probably the game where he scores a brace

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Yeh probably

    4. G B
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Benching him for Josh King next week.

      But I'm keeping him for now until a better alternative comes along.

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Is pukki becoming an option?

        1. G B
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Not for me.

          I try not to focus too much on the short term. When it comes to Pukki and Norwich, I'm going to need a bit more evidence before trusting them enough to invest.

          Someone like Antonio is proven long term, and is in a strong team. He could show up again in any week. I'm not even set on benching him against City, but King and Watford looking decent and Leicester defence has looked poor all season.

          1. chaser123
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Yeh fair point. My only concern is that he hasn’t returned much since GW3 so might just need to get rid at some point

    5. Flair
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Benching away to City

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Not considering a transfer out?

  14. gart888

    Have 2 FT. Which of these to do?

    a) White to James
    b) Rudiger to Chilwell
    c) Havertz to Jota
    d) Havertz to Foden
    e) Mbeumo to Gallagher
    f) Mbeumo to ESR

    1. Gizzachance

      A

    2. Meechoo115

        A and E

    3. Nightf0x
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      52 pts alone from the defence, salute the backline boys

    4. ASL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Did Pep say anything on why Ruben Dias did not play?

    5. EL tridente
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Foden, White, Williams to Gallagher, James and Reguilon for a hit?

      1. Meechoo115
          1 month, 27 days ago

          For a -4 yes but only if you are playing Williams. Otherwise compare Regulion to the other player you would play

      2. Gazwaz80
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        84 points with Cancelo captain, not too shabby. How’s everybody else done, one of those weeks where some people would have done extraordinarily well and others not so, hope everybody’s is the former…

        1. Meechoo115
            1 month, 27 days ago

            91 minus 4. (Which didn’t provide anything indeed lost me points as sold Jimi and Auba for Kane and Pukki )

              Foden and White to Gallagher and James for a hit?

                Yes

              Was all set to shift Vardy out to Kane but that performance (and Vardy’s fixture) has left me doubting the decision.

              18.7m in total to swap out Vardy and Havertz for better options (1FT)

                Cornet and Jimenez

                  Oh 1 FT. Just Havertz to Cornet.

                I'd keep Vardy home to Watford.

                Getting rid of Vardy before Watford is something to be doubtful of.

                  He’s blanked for how many in a row though? Can’t keep him forever. Cornet would be too much of a punt given OR

                  I’ve already got Jimenez and Antonio for what it’s worth.

                  So

                  Salah - Raphinha - Gallagher - ESR - (Havertz)

                  Antonio - Jimenez - (Vardy)

              Any preference between Emerson and Reguilon for people?

                No hate them both

                Not seen enough from either just yet, or Spurs in general. Not sure they're worth the dice roll.

                I brought in Reguilon this week. Think he is worth 0.1 more.
