Gabriel injury latest as Son and Kane haul in north London derby

We round up the key Fantasy Premier League (FPL) talking points from Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal in our Scout Notes summary.

The graphics below are taken from LiveFPL, Ragabolly’s excellent and ever-improving website, and our own Premium Members Area.

SPURS REIGNITE TOP FOUR PUSH

Two goals from Harry Kane (£12.4m) and a red card to Arsenal’s Rob Holding (£4.1m) put Tottenham in firm control of the north London derby, before Son Heung-min (£11.0m) added a third early in the second-half.

Spurs have now won five of their last six home league games, scoring at least three goals in each of those victories, with Burnley up next in Sunday’s Gameweek 37 opener.

The Clarets, meanwhile, could potentially be missing both of their first-choice centre-halves: James Tarkowski (£4.9m) exited last weekend’s game against Aston Villa in the early stages of the second half after feeling tightness in his hamstring, while Ben Mee (£4.6m) is out with a leg injury.

As for Son, the South Korean is now just one goal behind Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) in the Golden Boot race. The Liverpool man looked like he was going to run away with the award a few months back, but Son has hit 10 goals in his last eight league games to close within one of the Egyptian.

He wasn’t able to draw level with Salah on Thursday, however, with Antonio Conte withdrawing the player after 72 minutes, much to his frustration.

“Obviously I want to play always but what can I say? I have to accept it. We have a game on Sunday so that’s why. I am not angry just disappointed. I have to move on. I wanted to keep playing. We have an important game so I need to be ready, recover well and be fresh again.” – Son Heung-min on his withdrawal after 72 minutes

“I know Son Heung-min wanted to continue to play but I had to think not only about this game but to have fresh players. They spent a lot of energy. I made the decision to give them a bit of rest. He promised me on Sunday he will go to try to score.” – Antonio Conte on Son Heung-min

Son’s goal and assist means that he has now produced five double-figure hauls in his last eight matches and trails Salah by just 16 points at the top of the FPL standings.

On the injury front, Cristiano Romero (£4.8m) missed out due to a hip injury, which Conte touched on before kick-off.

“In the game against Liverpool he received a hit on his hip. After the game he had pain and is not right to recover.” – Antonio Conte on Cristian Romero

DEFENSIVE ISSUES AT ARSENAL

Despite tonight’s damaging defeat, Arsenal remain in the driving seat for a top-four spot with a one-point lead.

Despite that, there’s no room for any slip-ups against Newcastle United and Everton and they are struggling defensively: they have now gone eight league matches without a clean sheet since the 1-0 win at Aston Villa in Gameweek 30.

That’s coincided with injuries to Thomas Partey (£5.0m), Kieran Tierney (£4.9m) and more recently Ben White (£4.6m), although the latter did make the bench tonight.

However, it gets worse for Mikel Arteta, as they lost key centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes (£5.4m) to injury against Spurs, while Holding will serve his one-match ban at St James’ Park following his red card.

As for Gabriel, the 24-year-old went down feeling his hamstring and limped off shortly after, although Arteta did sound fairly upbeat in his post-match interview.

Gabi [Gabriel] is not normally a player who asks to be get off the pitch. He felt something but hopefully it’s not much. It’s a muscular problem and we’ll have to assess it” – Mikel Arteta


Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Sanchez, Dier, Davies (Rodon 82), Royal, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon, Kulusevski (Moura 72), Son (Bergwijn 72), Kane

Arsenal XI: Ramsdale, Cedric, Holding, Gabriel (Tavares 76), Tomiyasu, Elneny, Xhaka, Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli (Smith Rowe 64), Nketiah (Lacazette 73)

              Indeed. I couldn’t resist 😎

              Hey, been meaning to ask—is Friday the 13th significant for the Knights Template?

                Twas a terrible day. The day the template was destroyed by KDB.

          Very risky move but I think I might go without Liverpool attack.
          Mané, Diaz & Jota could be rotated.
          Would rather have De Bruyne & Son if you can't have Salah.

            Contemplating the same strategy

            1. adstomko
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              It's too risky choosing a LIV player that isn't Salah. Plus, Salah could be rested vs Saints if he plays 120 mins against Chelsea

            Thinking same here too, the Liv guys can be rested these next two games, and we have amazing alternatives in Son and KDB. I need to compete against the free hitters this week, so may go Son Kane Kulu triple uo for the next two weeks.

            1. adstomko

              Think I'm going to prioritise bringing in Richarlison on my FT (never thought I'd ever say that).

              if City drops points then Liverpool will have to smash Southampton to make up the GD

              and we know Southampton loves to get smashed

            Real madrid will win the final, Liverpool much better at anfield and more fragile defensively away, even Tottenham beat them on xg in that 2019 final.

            1. adstomko
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Liverpool were basically 1-0 up from the off though. Just needed to defend for 90 mins

              I’d love for you to be right but I’d really hope for something a little more convincing than a game from 3 years ago where they won but lost on xg as an argument 😆

            Need Help plz
            Which is better for GW 37
            A- KDB & Maddy & Kane
            B- Salah & Díaz & Vardy

              If on a FH then I think B

              C. KDB Diaz Vardy (assuming you will also have Son)

                Maybe this! I’m all at sea tbh with my Fh!

                  1 month, 15 days ago

                  Is Vardy assured minutes? Although I think he's dangerous either from the off or the bench.

              Just curious, why are there so many FH drafts out there with double Villa and Everton defence, but also Zaha?

              Surely if we think Villa and Everton will do well then Palace will struggle to score?

                  just makes no logical sense lol

                      75% of the posts here would not exist if logic was employed

                      You’re getting 8 home games against ho-hum competition and the defenders people are getting can all return offensively.

                      Makes a lot of sense.

                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 15 days ago

                  It makes sense if you are hedging your bets as to nailing one of two outcomes: Zaha hauls, or your defense hauls. While both aren’t likely given they face each other, you cover both outcomes.

                  1 month, 15 days ago

                  It’s not that simple. We’re not dealing with absolutes. No-one has double Villa and double Everton defence because they think there’s absolutely no way they concede a goal this week. Likewise no-one has Zaha because they think he’s absolutely going to score. They’re playing to percentages.

                  I thought about this and the conclusion I came to is that the extra game is good for both Everton and Villa so it makes sense.

                  Brentford at home is the sort of game Everton will be up for and I can see them keeping a CS in. Villa vs Burnley is even more of a banker.

                  Zaha can score against both teams and our defenders could still get good scores from the second game not to mention attacking returns if you pick Cash/Digne. Also, if Zaha/Palace blank in one, our defenders benefit.

                  Ideal scenario if we go the popular Pickford, Cash, Digne, Zaha combo... Palace keep a cleanie vs CPL. Everton keep a cleanie vs Brentford. Zaha scores a brace vs Everton.

                  Could end up with like Pickford 8, Cash 12, Digne 12, Zaha 17.

                  I see that 'ideal' outcome as not being that farfetched and that assumes the Villa defenders don't get any attacking returns.

                    *Villa keep two clean sheets.

                    1 month, 15 days ago

                    Zaha could easily be benched for the second one. End of season rotation especially with 3 games in a week

                      1 month, 15 days ago

                      Yep, basically just lump as many form players into the team and they'll work it out, hopefully.

                    If Watkins is OUT this is my differential FH team as im chasing ML rival. Thoughts?

                    Pickford
                    Cash-Robbo-Mykolenko
                    Buendia-Zaha-Salah-Coutinho(C)
                    Vardy-Kane-Richar

                      • 5 Years
                      1 month, 15 days ago

                      Like the Buendia pick - not sold on Coutinho Captain.
                      Kane + Vardy up top is great

                      1. Casualspotted
                          1 month, 15 days ago

                          He is much better at home than away and if Watkins is out he is likely to start both games. Cant see better differentials... Cheers

                            would much rather have Ingsy than Coutinho tbf

                              Ings Instead of which forward though? Richarlison?

                              1. luk46

                                ye, difficult... I'd say Ingsy over Coutinho, but Vardy, Kane and the thug are probably better options than him

                                1. Casualspotted

                                    I will wait for some news, maybe Vardy wont start

                                    Suddenly there's a wealth of form forwards, and we're in a twist lol. A rarity this season.

                                    Personally I'm going with Kane Rich Ings. Watkins and Vardy worries me though.

                                3. Casualspotted

                                    I think rival will have Ings also

                            On a -8. Would you activate FH or save for 38?

                                looks good, potentially Diaz + Kane over Salah + Ings?

                              The No BS League update

                              In a dramatic turn of events, and with a whooping 181 points, 'LessBruLessSalad' passes long time leader 'jia you' (142) and now tops the standings by 2 points!
                              These two are well clear of the chasing pack with two GWS to go.

                                    Eight FFS members decided on the tough challenge of going without both Salah and Bruno before the season started...has been a very tough season on us with two of us battling it out for the title now.

                                        So do you have a completely separate team specifically for this league, or do you have to go without both players across the board in all of your leagues?

                                              …would mean losing Kane or Salah. Have more pressing transfers to make

                                          Would now be 4 pts off top 1k had I kept it on Kev.

                                          Smooth: still ended up with 154 pts and in top 3k. Never been in such dizzy heights.

                                            Captained Salah having gone weeks without him being the main problem. Brought in KDB and Nketiah for Kane and Kulu though which at least worked out very well despite Kane’s points tonight

                                            Horrendous disaster of a week.

                                            Had been planning Kane + Kulu > KdB + Nketiah the whole time. Decided last minute to get cute and bet on Mahrez + Richarlison (money ITB for Mahrez > Son in GW38) with Salah (c).

                                            70 (-4) for the week and to make it worse my biggest rival who I had a 54 point lead on scored 157 on FH to overtake me.

                                              The worst thing about this for me is I did those exact moves (Kane + Kulu -> KDB + Nketiah) off the back of your advice. Sorry mate

                                              27 points on my bench but can't complain with 142...smooth

                                              Rough: Salah(c) was my lowest scoring player. Son(v) was highest scoring player. Only a small red arrow thankfully

                                              Smooth: Not me but my son managed 164pts BB (no hits) with maverick team of Trossard, Cucurella, Bowen and KdB(c)

                                              Rough: Mahrez

                                              That is all!

                                                And Jesus for Sterling!!

                                                Rough.

                                                Along with Salah, Saka and Coutinho in the midfield.

                                                Smooth canceled BB which was Mateta 1 and Williams - 1 along with White and Guaita. Hardly an upside.

                                                Kane helped too and defense scored some points.

                                              Feels like a rare smooth …

                                              Mount, Toney and Robertson

                                              transferred to

                                              KDB (c), Nketiah and Matip

                                              Moved from 38k to 10.1k

                                              Salah(c), no KDB, no chips, Matip first on bench & played Robbo (actually it was between Matip and Coutinho for bench duties, but who would've thunk Matip would get attacking returns before Robbo)

                                              Rough: Salah C utter fail, don't own KDB, support Arsenal.
                                              Smooth: 146 on BB, up to 14k, it's still in our hands!

                                              Nothing else matters really. Gw score 125 pts... meh.

                                              Rough: Salah (c) , no Kdb, Arsenal result.

                                              Smooth: The Kane & Son points did help a little bit, but would rather we secured top 4!

                                              Smooth: My transfers were Sterling and Watkins for KdB (C) and Richarlison. Also BB returned 30 points to give me the best GW Rank so far this season of about 9k and propelled me from 39k to about 9k.

                                              Broja Weghorst Dubravka Telles for Richarlson Pickford Nketiah Matip. 5 points to 45 (-12)

                                              All sorts of horrors have unfolded since GW30 (my last captain return) but this week:

                                              - BB got me 29 playing players.
                                              - I only had 6 returning players across those 29.

                                              Dropped from 25k to 45k

                                              Smooth: 130(-4) on BB got me a green arrow back into top 10k. Laporte, Cancelo, Son, Nketiah and Foster of all people all with good hauls.

                                              Rough was my transfers. Havertz, Broja and VVD out (not too bad) but brought in Mahrez, Tavares and Richarlison instead. Mahrez and Tavares got about 20mins between them lol.

                                              Also rough was captaining Salah.

                                              Exciting GW. Roll on 37.

                                              Rough: very little. Richarlison and Gordon not delivering on the double.

                                              Smooth: fantastic week. kdb captain, 26 point bench boost, son and cancelo in team. Just outside top 500 now. Was amazed to be told I am in the top 5 in the world for captain picks all season

                                              ROUGH!:

                                              No one rougher than me this week! In 16 FPL seasons the other night was the worst experience of playing the game I’ve ever had! I had removed KdB(c) for Salah(c) for a hit bringing in Richarlison alongside! It unfolded like this. I’d removed Salah for Bruno(c) over the double, then held him an extra week for the double double. Then Werner came in which left me 0.1 shy of getting Salah back. So got KdB in last week instead who didn’t even play! We all know Salah has been useless since Afcon and I’d talked myself into just going with Trent & Robbo until all the EO chatter on Salah captaincy started and at 12.30 on Saturday I got cold feet on the idea! Never made such a bad call. 53 points down and dropped from 290k to 400k!

                                              Smooth: Considered selling Kane and Barnes to get Salah back which would’ve been equally painful! Kane, Barnes, Kasper, Gordon, Kulu, Davies & Richarlison all chipped in ok. 72(-4) all out.

                                              Captained Salah and didn't own Kdb.

                                              With KDB(C), Son and Mane being the proud moments. Laughing in the face of Salah captainers and the mass with a 3,816 gameweek rank

                                              Smooth: James, Cancelo, Mount, Nketiah all returned. Captained KDB. Scored 141. My non-FH team with 11 DGWers would have scored 64, a gain of 77. Happy days.

                                              Kane and Sterling out on FH

                                              Swapped KDB (c) out for Salah (c) last minute. Didn't like the team I could afford with both.

                                              Richa or Vardy ?

                                                I've gone with Salah and Richarlison

                                                I'd love KDB but prefer the TAA Salah Son Kane fixtures

                                                Vardy could be a good differential if you wanted to go down that route

                                            If Salah & Díaz play 90 or more in Cup final would u still keep them or ur FH for GW 37 ?

                                              Is the Cup Final played before the deadline?

                                                  I guess it depends on how tough the game is.

                                            Do we think Maddison will play twice? Having a sacrifice a bit in defence to get him in, but I do really like the Watford fixture:

                                              i brought him in anyway as an enabler, but its hard to say with Mina & Godfrey both lurking but currently flagged, maybe an Everton fan let us know the pecking order
