Spurs are finding their groove and it’s fun to watch. September finally struck and Kane’s third successive August curse was instantly lifted. The England international has a treble of braces in his last four games played in all competitions. Red-hot form.
Spurs 3 – 0 Everton
Kane got his 100th goal for the club on a fluke cross that looked more like a heat-seeking missile. The possession stats were almost exactly 50-50 but it didn’t feel that way in the gameplay. Everton made unbelievable errors in critical areas while Spurs took advantage and looked dangerous with every chance they got. All-in-all a routine victory for a top four favourite.
We predict a Spurs’ blowout victory against Swansea and expect a clean sheet this Saturday, as the Swans are struggling to find where the goals will come from. Plus the back three of Alderweireld, Davinson Sánchez, and Vertonghen are starting to gel.
Spurs 3 – 1 Dortmund
Spurs’ midweek Champions League clash against Dortmund was an exciting back-and-forth showdown. Spurs countered Dortmund’s possessive attack and high defensive line with ease and expelled their Wembley hoodoo in the process.
We’re hoping to see this home performance carry over into the Premier League this Saturday versus Swansea. Davinson Sánchez at CB is looking rock solid, while Aurier had quite the debut at RWB. Both showed their muscle and ball retention skills and put on an impressive defensive display.
Aurier – amazing.
Toby – amazing.
Jan – amazing.
Davies – amazing.
Eriksen – amazing.
Son – amazing.
Kane – Kane.#COYS 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

In what most people consider to be the group of death, Spurs are now in a great position out of the gate alongside Real Madrid. It will most likely come down to Dortmund and Spurs to see who moves on into the knockout stages, and Spurs drew first blood.
Gameweek 5 Predicted Scoreline
Spurs 4 – 0 Swans
Spurs—Kane (2), Alli, Llorente
Fantasy Premier League Guidance
- Must have – Kane (£12.4)
- With 6 goals in his last 4 games for club and country, he’s on fire. Bring him back into your squad if you can because he may keep this red-hot form going until at least Christmas.
- Bargain & Differential – Son (£8.0 at 1.0%)
- With many scoring midfielders being highly priced at above £8.5, Son could be a great differential pick. He started midweek in the Champions League because of Dele Alli’s ban, but look for him to get a start sooner than later in the Premier League. His goal against Dortmund was a thing of beauty.
— Tottenham Hotspur-US (@Spurs_US) September 14, 2017 Avoid – Llorente (£7.4)
- He’s too expensive to be a bench player and won’t get enough minutes to be an effective starter for your FPL squad. He may be a super sub for Spurs, but we don’t believe he has much fantasy value.
