Reguilon makes bench but Alli and Saint-Maximin miss out on Spurs v Newcastle

Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.4m) isn’t involved in the Newcastle United squad for the Magpies’ clash with Tottenham Hotspur, which is the second of four Premier League fixtures to take place on Sunday.

Kick-off in north London is at 14:00 BST.

The French winger was a doubt for this match with an ankle injury he picked up in the defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion but had been pictured in full training on Friday, raising hopes of a swift recovery.

Jamal Lewis (£4.5m), who took a blow to the eye in that Gameweek 2 defeat, is only fit enough for a place on the bench, meanwhile.

Matt Ritchie (£5.0m), Miguel Almiron (£5.9m) and Joelinton (£5.9m) all make their first league starts of the season, having shone in Newcastle’s 7-0 win over Morecambe in midweek.

Andy Carroll (£5.5m) is the other player to make way.

The team news is a lot more straightforward from a Spurs point of view, with Jose Mourinho making only one change from their 5-2 win at Southampton last weekend.

Giovani Lo Celso (£6.9m) comes into midfield in place of Tanguy Ndombele (£6.0m), with the Frenchman only among the substitutes.

Dele Alli (£7.7m) and the injured Gareth Bale (£9.5m) aren’t in the squad but there is a place on the bench for new signing Sergio Reguilon (£5.5m) following his move from Real Madrid.

Son Heung-min (£9.1m) and Harry Kane (£10.5m), unsurprisingly, keep their places following last weekend’s monster FPL hauls.

Son was the most-bought midfielder of Gameweek 3, with just under one million Fantasy managers recruiting the South Korea international.

Kane and Son are the fourth and fifth most-popular captaincy picks for this round of games.

Only Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.9m) suffered more sales than Saint-Maximin ahead of Saturday’s deadline, meanwhile.


Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Doherty, Dier, Sanchez, Davies, Hojbjerg, Winks, Lo Celso, Lucas, Son, Kane.

Newcastle United XI: Darlow, Manquillo, Fernandez, Lascelles, Ritchie, Hayden, Shelvey, Almiron, Hendrick, Joelinton, Wilson.

    I’m not gonna lie, Wilson to Bamford is tempting

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Wood to Bamford also tempting

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I'd probably prefer Maupay over Bamford. But hold Wood for next 2 I think, he had a goal disallowed yesterday, he should get a return.

        1. Ser Davos
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          and with Newcastle and WBA coming up. Burnley's talisman too

    Without ASM Newcastle will be a lot better than last week.

  14. TyroneGAA

    Had no Leeds from the start and think the time has passed to get them

  15. Rolls-Royce

    Kane already dropping deep with Son trying to get behind the last line

  17. Giggs Boson

    With City and Wolves next, surely Bamford will stop scoring now... right?

    1. Ser Davos
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      If we're loaded on Saiss, Semedo and City mids it's destined that he'll continue...

    Say what you like about Bamford but he did come in at 5.5, put on top of that Leeds' attacking output.
    Undisputed value, but hoping too he becomes more of a player that represents his starting price.

  23. Rolls-Royce
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Almost Kane goal

  24. Flair

    Surprised Newcastle didn't bring out the 5-4-1 for this one, could be a blowout

  25. KGFC

    Lost on last post - Probably the most top saves by 2 goalkeepers in any game I have seen, in the last game . So many really top saves ?

    So annoyed with the price changes. Missed 3 changes and now locked out of the move because of missing 0.1... Not my best start of the season.
