Fantasy Premier League managers are eyeing up Spurs assets this week as they are the only team to play twice in Double Gameweek 32.
José Mourinho’s men are joint-second among Premier League teams for scoring the most first goals in games, while they are worst in the division for number of goals conceded in the last 10 minutes.
What impact will that have on how we invest in their assets this week? We asked the Scout Network what they think…
Both Harry Kane (£11.7m) and Son Heung-min (£9.4m) will be in our team for Double Gameweek 32. Rotation is a definitely a concern, with EFL Cup on the horizon but Mourinho isn’t exactly blessed with a squad that allows him to rest his best players. And with Europa League qualification at risk, the simple fact is Tottenham need to win their league games, so I cannot see Son getting dropped, especially against
We won’t be going anywhere near the Spurs defence. Bizarrely, given that it’s a Mourinho team, this is the worst side for expected goals conceded in the last two games and one of those was against an injury ravaged Newcastle outfit.
Spurs’ Double Gameweek 32 fixtures genuinely create a headache for FPL managers. There is temptation to triple-up Spurs assets but they will immediately have a Blank Gameweek 33 afterwards. That said, their run-in is respectable, with home games against Sheffield United, Wolves and Aston Villa to come.
Son and Kane are key for Double Gameweek 32, if managers want to triple-up then Lucas Moura (£6.6m) has started the last six games and has contributed three assists in his last four.
Having Son Heung-Min (£9.4m) and Harry Kane (£11.7m) is as essential as it can get if you can afford to bench them in Gameweek 33 as their fixtures continue to be strong beyond that.
Personally I wouldn’t consider any other options given their blank in Gameweek 33 and the fact that many FPL managers still hold Manchester City assets in our squads and they also blank in Gameweek 33. Given Spurs’ poor defensive form and the amount of rotation in their backline, I wouldn’t look at any options in defence. Other options in attack are limited but Lucas Moura (£6.6m) who is in fine form is your best bet aside from Son and Kane. The season defining League Cup Final a few days after the Southampton game could mean rotation so managers should tread with caution.
I’m going into the Spurs double with Son and Kane. I’m not too sure there is much value in going with a third attacker. Hugo Lloris (£5.6m) is the safest option in defence due to Mourinho’s rotation, especially with centre-backs, but playing Everton and Southampton I can see both scoring so gains could be minimal.
Heading into a Double Gameweek it’s always a good time to remind ourselves that this season, not many Double Gameweek players have delivered as promised. With that in mind, I think just owning one or at the most two Spurs assets will be enough.
I wouldn’t look much outside of Son and Kane, but if at this stage you want to have fun with it and add to them, then Moura, with his three assist in the last four Gameweeks, could be a nice differential.
If your are chasing in your mini-leagues take a risk and go for three Spurs players. But it is worth considering that, you will probably have to take a minus-four in Blank Gameweek 33 to replace two of Spurs in their blank. For me I’ll be sticking with just Son and Kane.
If you are looking for a third then I would be avoiding the defence as they just aren’t keeping clean sheets, however if you have one I would hold. Moura seems to have the biggest potential, but Tanguy Ndombélé (£5.9m) would make a great differential pick.
