The Harry Kane Train has derailed, but is the Son about to rise once again?
It’s squeaky bum time as Sir Alex Ferguson used to say, not just in the Premier League title race – but also for your final opportunities to claim victory over your Starting 11 Mini League rivals.
For all you FPL managers out there – as well as those of you playing Starting 11 daily fantasy with us each week, I hope this week’s selections give you plenty of food for thought when locking in your FPL and daily fantasy lineups.
The Starting 11 iOS and Android apps can be downloaded for free, and we’ve a £25 1st place prize up for grabs in our FPLtips Mini League this Sunday, so be sure to check that out.
Heung-Min Son vs. Huddersfield Town (H)
It’s well-known over on FPL, don’t make your transfers early – well that goes to writing articles early too. This Gameweek was all set up for Harry Kane at home to Huddersfield, until he limped off during their 1-0 victory in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
We move on, and with every blow to our plans another opportunity surfaces – this time in the form of Heung-Min Son.
The first thing I asked when Kane went off, is Son playing upfront? Well it was more of a joint effort between him and Moura, however based on Son’s form without Kane earlier in the season he immediately sparked my interest.
Well a match winning goal vs Manchester City was enough for me, a home tie vs the already relegated Huddersfield on Saturday is too good of an opportunity to miss – It would take a brave fantasy boss not to captain the Spurs midfielder, nevermind risk not owning him.
Huddersfield have only won one of their last twenty league games, even that was against a weakened Wolves side who were prioritising the FA Cup.
Can Son return to his devastating form and add to his twelve goals and seven assists in the Premier League this season?
Raheem Sterling vs. Crystal Palace (A)
Liverpool and Manchester City are still in a close race for this season’s Premier League title, Guardiola risked resting Sterling vs Cardiff City – but can he afford to do the same again vs Crystal Palace?
After keeping two clean sheets during their last three games, Palace will be a tougher test that Cardiff – therefore I expect Sterling to start to give Manchester City their full fire-power in attack.
With fifteen goals as well as thirteen assists Sterling has to be in your team for the remainder of the season, yes Guardiola has to resources to rotate – but with Starting 11 there is no risk as you can swap him out before kick off.
Christian Eriksen vs. Huddersfield Town (H)
Spurs at home to Huddersfield? We’ll need more than just Kane for this one, the man in form is Christian Eriksen.
His goal and two assists during his last two games took him to a total of seventeen attacking returns this season (6 goals and 11 assists), with his delivery from set pieces as well as open play – if Kane is to produce his goal scoring hauls then it’s like Eriksen will be the man creating those chances.
Eriksen made ten key passes over those two games, as well as eight shots on goal – owners could be forgiven if they expected more returns.
Huddersfield’s last game was against Leicester City, the Foxes were allowed 18 shots that day away from home – this could get messy.
Shane Duffy vs. Bournemouth (H)
There is plenty of talk this week over on FPL regarding Brighton players, a double gameweek makes them prime transfer targets – but can the Seagulls offer us any value on Starting 11 too?
Well on Saturday Brighton are at home to Bournemouth, a Bournemouth who have only won one of their last nine games.
Despite losing their FA Cup Semi Final to Manchester City, those Brighton players did their fans proud and they showed their appreciation at the final whistle.
Now it’s time to give those fans something to celebrate with three points that would go a long way to securing their Premier League status for another season.
