A recent change of tactics by Jose Mourinho could have repercussions for owners of Son Heung-min (£9.5m) and Harry Kane (£10.9m) in Fantasy Premier League.

The Tottenham Hotspur pair are the two top-scoring players in FPL, producing 87 and 86 points respectively over the opening 10 Gameweeks.

As a result, they are also among the three most-popular players in the game. Son is owned by 57.6 per cent, while 42.9 per cent have Kane.

But their tough schedule appears to be restricting their potential in Fantasy.

Reduced goal threat

Son has produced just two shots over the last two matches against Manchester City and Chelsea, while Kane has managed only one.

All three of those combined attempts have come from outside the penalty box.

Spurs are looking less dangerous in general as a team.

In the last two Gameweeks they have recorded only nine shots, with three attempts in the box, the lowest totals in the league.

By contrast, Leeds United have had 48 shots and 32 shots in the box, both league-leading tallies.

More of the same?

Spurs still have a testing run of opponents ahead.

They face Arsenal, Liverpool, Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers over the next five Gameweeks.

Should Mourinho continue to employ the same cautious tactics, Son and Kane owners may be better off seeking out replacements until the schedule turns kinder in Gameweek 16.
