As the new Fantasy Premier League season approaches we will be previewing all 20 Premier League teams – here is our FPL Tottenham preview. Firstly we’ll analysis each team’s performance from last season. From there we’ll look at each team’s new signings, which players are most likely to play, their set piece takers and most importantly which players present the best FPL value.
FPL Tottenham Preview – Team Performance
|Finishing Position: 2nd|
Although Tottenham finished second in the league they actually scored the most and conceded the least goals in the Premier League last season. Their home record of 17 wins and no defeats, whilst conceding just 9 in the process, is an astounding record. It should be noted that Tottenham will be playing their home goals at Wembley this season.
FPL Tottenham Preview – Players
Tottenham have yet to sign anyone for the 2017/18 season.
Predicted Starting 11
It is still relatively early to be predicting each team’s starting 11. However, as it stands this is the Tottenham lineup we believe is most likely to start the Premier League season. The chances of starting percentage is based upon the information we have available as of writing. As the beginning of the Fantasy Premier League season draws closer please check our FPL Team News page for more accurate, up to date lineup predictions.

Tottenham Players to Pick for FPL
Tottenham players will be picked in abundance to begin the season. Their relatively thin squad, excellent goal scoring and defensive record are all contributing factors to this. Their thin squad is a positive in the fact it makes predicting their lineup easier.
With the exit of Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier will be looking to be build on an impressive second half to last season. The now £5.5m rated right back offers attacking threat. However, he picked up an ankle injury in Tottenham’s last pre-season game and is now a doubt to start. Danny Rose (£6.5m) is also recovering from an injury so Ben Davies (£5.5m) will be expected to start the season at left back. Tottenham’s centre backs pick themselves with Toby Alderweireld (£6.0m) and Jan Vertonghen (£6.0m). They scored 120 and 126 points respectively last season.
There is a large points discrepancy between Tottenham’s defensive midfield players and attacking. Only one of Tottenham’s defensive midfielders broke the 100 point barrier. Victor Wanyama (£5.0m) would be a certain starter if fit but a knee injury will likely see Eric Dier (£5.0m) replace him to start the season. The consistent Mousa Dembele (£5.0m) will partner him. Tottenham’s star midfielders, both priced £9.5m, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen comfortably scored more than 200 FPL points last season. Both were in the top 6 overall scorers. Given this they are both relatively cheap and therefore good value options at £9.5m. Heung-Min Son also contributed to Tottenham’s season with 14 Premier League goals. He would be a starter but an injury is likely to see the £5.5m priced Moussa Sissoko come into the team on the right flank.
For Fantasy Premier League purposes there is only one Tottenham forward – Harry Kane. He is the most expensive player in FPL at £12.5m. His 29 Premier League goals and 7 assists justifies this price tag. Despite this price tag he is still picked by 36.0% of FPL managers. Picking him will require sacrifices elsewhere but not selecting him may be the greater risk. Vincent Janssen (£7.5m) will play back up forward to Harry Kane which means he will have limited minutes. Needless to say Vincent Janssen is an FPL player to avoid unless Harry Kane were to get injured.
