Underlying Stats

The attack

Spurs have scored 59 goals this season, the fourth best goal tally in the league. Spurs have scored 15 goals in the last six Gameweeks, only Manchester City have scored more. This includes Spurs failing to score in Gameweeks 33 and 34. As a result the Spurs attacking players are attractive FPL options.

Son Heung-Min is top for goals at Spurs so far this season with 19. Only Liverpool’s Mo Salah has scored more goals than Son so far this season. However, 32 of the Spurs goals have come from Son and Harry Kane this season, this is 54% of the teams goals.

The Spurs front three have been good investments for FPL managers, especially since the January transfer window.

Son has 28 attacking returned this season. This is second only to Salah. Kane is also fourth in the attacking returns list this season with 23, just five less than Son.

Dejan Kulusevski has 12 attacking returns this season which is impressive from 11 starts since his arrival in January.

The defence

Defender Matt Doherty is top of the Spurs defenders for attacking returns with seven from just nine starts. However, his injury means that if FPL managers want to invest in the Spurs defence they will need to look elsewhere.

Like Doherty, Regulion has scored two goals so far this season. However, Regulion did miss Spurs Gameweek 35 fixture with a groin injury, his availability for Gameweek 36 is uncertain.

Ownership ahead of Double Gameweek 36

Only three Spurs players are owned by more than 10% of managers in the top 10k.

Owning one of them therefore means managers are unlikely to benefit from their points in teams of Overall Rank rise. Only 106 managers own all three of the Spurs forward players and therefore owning more than one of them is a good way to differentiate an FPL team.

The Spurs defenders still have low ownership in the top 10k. Injured Doherty is still the most heavily owned of the Spurs defence in the top 10k.
