Gameweek 24 rounds off with a fixture pair that very likely has your FPL captain playing.
Southampton will have been taught some tough lessons by fluid Spurs. They will likely decide to change tactics and apply the deeper defense / surrender possession and territory approach that has seen Spurs struggle at times this season.
It’s no win in 10 games for the Saints. Spurs won this fixture last season 4-1 at St Mary’s, Dele Alli scoring a brace, Son and Kane each scoring once, and Virgil van Dijk replying for Southampton.
Dele Alli is coming into form and has 4 in his last 3 against Southampton. With Kane, Alli and Son in such goal scoring form, St Mary’s faithful may find it a hard watch.
We then finish Monday evening with Swansea hosting Liverpool. It ended 5-0 to pool on Boxing Day with Mo Salah providing 2 assists and Firmino 2 goals. Both players will be in many a fantasy team this week.
Liverpools unbeaten run has stretched to 14 games, and they have scored at least 2 goals in each of their last 6 away games. Forward Roberto Firmino has 4 goals in his last 3 fixtures against Swansea, and he is in his best form at the club.
Liverpool won 2-1 in this fixture last season, Firmino and Milner scoring for the Reds, Fer with the Swansea goal.
The obvious thought is a couple of dominant away wins and plenty of fantasy points for the Tottenham / Liverpool players, but sometimes football isn’t that straightforward.
Enjoy the games, and let’s chat.
