The Premier League’s official fantasy football game is back, who makes your team?
Work like a (Daniel) Levy and get them in before the season starts.
To make it easy, here are the current Spurs fantasy options:
Hugo Lloris at £5.5m – our very own captain and captain of the French national team, and a very savvy shot stopper and blocker of penalties. He’s guaranteed to win you points.
Paulo Gazzaniga at £4.5m – the Argentine hasn’t played many games for us, but when he has, hasn’t he just looked amazing diving through the air to pick out expected opposition goals? Yes. And he managed to dislodge long-standing second choice, Michel Vorm. I would go with Hugo for your team, though.
Toby Alderweireld at £5.5m – with hopes of Toby remaining and signing a new contract, hopefully, we will see our elegant defender calmly regaining possession, then sending it up field with a beautiful kick that lands at the feet of our attackers. Oh Toby, please stay. He’s a must have for your team.
Jan Vertonghen at £5.5m – you can’t describe how much Vertonghen means to our club. He’s our Rolls Royce, and everyone loves a Rolls Royce almost as much as they love a Vertonghen slide tackle. He’s a beautiful player and a brick wall against opposition attackers. Just put him in your team.
Davinson Sánchez at £5.5m – our young Colombian international just gets better and better, and he’s only 23. His indignifying feints against opposition attackers are a thing of beauty, and not to mention his strength when up against some of the premier leagues toughest attackers. Young with a ton of potential. Might be a little risky due to game time, but definitely worth a punt.
Danny Rose at £5.5m– rumour has it we are looking to sell our player with the most heart, who fights for every ball within every match and who the majority of the time comes out on top with a chunk of the opposition player. If he stays, put him in your team.
Ben Davies at £5.5m – Davies divides the fan base on his attacking input to the side, but we all agree that he is a very very good defender. His tackles last season saved us many times in the league and in our run to the Champions League final. His defensive stats will do your team well.
Kieran Trippier at £5.5m – with rumours having Trippier representing a different team next season, maybe hold tight. However, if he stays and he recaptures those world cup performances… imagine the points he would earn you!
Juan Foyth at £5.0 – the young Argentine international has won his way into the hearts of the Spurs fanbase with his nerve, and skill, to try the audacious. More often than not it pays off, and it’s beautiful to see. With the possibility of little game time, probably a risky choice.
Serge Aurier at £5.0m – unfortunately Aurier’s season was hampered by injuries. Though he has a moment of madness every match he plays, it seems, there is no denying his quality. Let’s hope he remains injury free to prove the doubters wrong. Risky option, though.
Kyle Walker-Peters at £5.0m – Walker-Peters shows heaps of potential and promises to be a very good right back in the future. Hopefully with more chances and cup game runs, we will start to see what Walker-Peters can offer. Risky option, but potentially a good one.
Son Heung-min (£9.5m) – in a season full of interruptions, our Son was still able to amass figures that put some of the leagues best attackers to shame. Just put him in your team, simple.
Christian Eriksen at £9.0m – will he stay or will he go? That’s the question… there is no denying his ability, but last season Eriksen was a little off. However, should Eriksen remain and hit the ground running and be the attacker that we know and love, he will be one hell of a points scorer for your team.
Dele Alli at £8.5m – last season Alli was asked to play a different role and with his injuries, it’s no wonder his attacking stats took a hit. But with midfield reinforcements this summer, hopefully we will be treated to the Alli that has the propensity to try anything to win you some points.
Lucas Moura at £7.5m – if Moura’s first full season in the Premier League is to go by, get him in your team, because, hopefully it can only get better. If you have room, put him in.
Tanguy Ndombele at £6.0m – though Ndombele will be new to the Premier League, I don’t see no reason not to put him in your team. He is a monster in the middle of the field with a lot of creative flair, an exciting prospect to say the least. I would take the risk and add him to your team.
Erik Lamela at £6.0m – unfortunately Lamela spends more time in the physio room than on the pitch. But when he is out on the field, he has the ability to change the game with a quick pass, assist or goal… risky option.
Harry Winks at £5.5m – though tidy and creative with the ball, Winks’ attacking stats are not great so he won’t win you many points. But more often than not, his moves are what lead to goals… why can’t we have ‘hockey assists’?
Moussa Sissoko at £5.0m – Sissoko was brilliant for us, storming forward and creating chaos in the middle of the pitch last season. But he doesn’t seem to know where the goal is and doesn’t provide many assists, probably one of the riskier options in our midfield.
Eric Dier at £5.0m – there is an argument around Dier’s best position, with some saying in midfield and others in defense. Which one will he play next season? Who knows. He isn’t likely to win you many points, though.
Victor Wanyama at £5.0m – Wanyama is a little injury prone and hasn’t managed to capture his devastating (for the opposition that is) form from his first season. He wouldn’t offer much in attacking points either way.
Oliver Skipp at £4.5m – the future is bright for our young academy starlet, but will he win you points next season? Highly doubtful, but wishful thinking!
Harry Kane at £11m– I would just put him in your team. Kane might have the odd injury or two, but he will always win you points. Risk worth taking.
Vincent Janssen at £4.5m – nope… don’t do it. Sorry Janssen, I will route for you regardless.
There you have it, who makes it into your fantasy team?
