✔ Goalkeepers: Gazzaniga (£5.0) played almost double the minutes played by Lloris (£5.5), and was very impressive but he will still Spurs' no.2 goalie.
✔ Defenders: It looks like Kyle Walker-Peters (£5.0) will be the first choice right back for the first few gameweeks as he played the most minutes amongst defenders. Serge Aurier (£5.0) didn't play at all. The versatile Foyth (£5.0) will probably be rotated with Walker-Peters if Aurier is still not available. Rose (£5.5) has the left back position on lockdown, as Davies (£5.5) was another player who didn't feature at all in preseason. Sanchez (£5.5), Alderweireld (£5.5) & Vertoghen (£5.5) will be fighting it out for the 2 centre back position unless Poch plays 3 at the back with wing backs. That would really give Walker-Peters & Rose more appeal.
✔ Midfielders: Unfortunately, Dele Alli (£8.5) is injured again and will be out for a few weeks and Son (£9.5) is suspended for the first two gameweeks. This means Lamela (£6.0) will get plenty of playing time as he did in preseason, he was able to score 2 goals + an assist, and it is notable that he does take corners sometimes. However, the standout pick should be Lucas Moura (£7.5), he scored 3 goals and provided one assist in preseason. The Brazilian definitely gives more appeal then Eriksen (£9.0). Ndombele (£6.0) is worth a mention as he is actually brilliant passer of the ball and did provide an assist on debut.
✔ Forwards: The only pick here is Kane (£11.0). A serial goal scorer and penalty taker. He looked very very good in preseason, scored 2 goals and provided an assist.
BEST CHOICES: Walker-Peters (£5.0), that price for a player who starts in a 'big six' is just too good to look past. Lamela (£6.0), might be a brilliant differential for the first few gameweeks. Lucas Moura (£7.5), he can be very explosive. Kane (£11.0).
