Scouting The Doubles

The best Spurs players for FPL Double Gameweek 29 and beyond

As if you hadn’t heard already, six top-flight teams will play twice in Double Gameweek 29, after three postponed Premier League fixtures were rescheduled for mid-March.

Following our look at Arsenal, attention now turns to North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, in this, the second instalment of a four-part Scouting the Doubles.

Notably, in addition to their ‘double’, the Lilywhites also have a guaranteed fixture in Gameweek 30, making their assets more appealing for those attempting to negotiate the blank without a Free Hit.

THE OUTLOOK

Sizeable Double Gameweek 22 a possibility after FA Cup replays scrapped

Tottenham Hotspur’s unexpected elimination from the FA Cup means that Antonio Conte’s side can not only offer us players who ‘double’ in Gameweek 29, but also assets who are unaffected by the blanks in Gameweek 30.

For those looking further ahead, Spurs will also have another Double Gameweek to come between now and the end of the season.

And the remaining fixtures themselves are very decent, with eight of their last 12 games of 2021/22 against teams currently ranked 11th or below in the Premier League table.

Spurs’ performances have been a bit Jekyll-and-Hyde in 2022, with five wins and four defeats in the Premier League since the turn of the year (see below). However, they have improved of late, with back-to-back 5-0 and 4-0 wins against Everton and Leeds United respectively.

  • Tottenham Hotspur 5-0 Everton
  • Leeds United 0-4 Tottenham Hotspur
  • Burnley 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur
  • Manchester City 2-3 Tottenham Hotspur
  • Tottenham Hotspur 0-2 Wolverhampton Wanderers
  • Tottenham Hotspur 2-3 Southampton
  • Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham Hotspur
  • Leicester City 2-3 Tottenham Hotspur
  • Watford 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Now, they face a Manchester United outfit whose defensive deficiencies were badly exposed in Sunday’s derby, plus a Brighton and Hove Albion side who have conceded nine goals in their last four league matches.

    Jimi and son> kane and kulu(-4) way to sideways?

      It is too sideways for me, but I only have max 9 starters for 30, so if you have the luxury of cover It's not a bad move.

      I'm seeing this move a lot.

      I don't really like it that much. Son is one of the best assets in the game. And my instinct is that removing a high performing player as one of your transfers just to get Kane is a mistake.

      Son in particular I think is well suited for the DGW. Maybe even more than Kane.

      I'd rather aim for Jimenez > Lacazette and fund the move by improving your team rather than chasing Kane.

        I have lacazette, and the only forward i want is Kane. Cover my ml rival is another reason.

      I Like it. Whilst I prefer Son over Kane due to cheaper and classification means more points per goal, I think moving funds up top for Kane is a good move as it allows an easy switch to Vardy in the future.

      Also, there are so many budget midfielders scoring points, and not so many strikers. So it makes sense going Kane and a budget mid rather than Son occupying a mid slot.

    "I hit the post twice but it's okay. Maybe next game I can score three."

    Salah (c) locked.

      "I would simply score three goals in every game"... wonder why nobody else has thought of it 😀
