FPL Scout's club review: Kane can build on late-season revival

The Scout assesses the star performers from each club in the 2019/20 Fantasy Premier League season, and what managers should look out for as they prepare for the game to launch ahead of the 2020/21 season start on 12 September.

Tottenham Hotspur

Harry Kane's prolific end to the 2019/20 season suggests he is finding his best form under Jose Mourinho.

The Tottenham Hotspur forward managed 11 goals in his first 20 matches of the campaign.

But he then scored seven goals in nine appearances after the season resumed in June. That total was joint-top with Danny Ings among FPL forwards.

The underlying numbers further highlight Kane's displays.

His 13 shots on target placed fifth overall from Gameweek 30+ onwards, second only to the 15 of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang up front.

Midfield options

However, it was Son Heung-min who was Spurs' most reliable player in FPL under Mourinho.

He averaged 5.9 points per match (ppm) after the head coach was appointed in Gameweek 13.

Son was involved in 46 per cent of Spurs' goals when selected by Mourinho, more than any other player.

Dele Alli also impressed, playing a part in 43 per cent of their goals under the Portuguese.

Player Position Points
Son MID 169
Kane FWD 158
Aurier DEF 124
Alli MID 117
Moura MID 100

A total of only eight clean sheets indicates members of the Spurs backline will remain under the £6.0m mark in FPL next season.

Serge Aurier seems their likeliest candidate to bring in points at both ends of the pitch. The right-back combined one goal with seven assists.

However, Hugo Lloris provides an alternative for managers prepared to look beyond the budget bracket in goal.

The Frenchman was limited to 21 appearances in 2019/20 due to injury.

Yet he averaged 4.7 ppm, more than the 4.5 ppm of Nick Pope, the top-scoring goalkeeper in the game.
