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.

    Can anyone be suprised? Spurs have something like 10 games in 21 games

    1. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      31 games is a lot

      21 days*

    Son points-chasers getting what they deserve. The cool kids owned him last week and dumped him this week 😎

    1. Das Boot
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      What, You dumped Son before Newcastle at home?

      1. COK3Y5MURF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        22 days, 2 hours ago

        On WC, yes. Can't own them all and he played 90 minutes mid week

    2. The Fed

    Ouch, Son cappers will be gutted. I have him so gutted.

    Could have been an argument with Jose...

    We know he's going to lose the dressing room at some point. It's a question of when...

    1. Bambi
      • 8 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      I highly doubt it. He has played 225 mins in the last week (3 games)

    2. Bartowski
      • 10 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      Son doesn't strike me as the argumentative type

      1. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        22 days, 2 hours ago

        Had a bust up with Lloris recently, didn't he?

        But yeah, it's probably just wishful thinkg 😀

        Where is that muppet Do.herty who was telling me that there was absolutely no risk of rotation lolololololol? Some foolishly arrogant people on this forum.

        1. F_Ivanovic
          • 5 Years
          22 days, 1 hour ago

          I mean he started didn't he? OFC he's going to be subbed off at some point... a tad unfortunate it happens after 45 mins.

        2. F_Ivanovic
          • 5 Years
          22 days, 8 mins ago

          I think you owe him an apology....

        Rested for sure, he played back to back 90 mins including on Thursday, & we play on Tuesday & Thursday next week

      • Zim0

          Hopefully zero-owned Lo Celso scores soon so Harry comes off on 59 mins 😉

              I got banned yesterday for something extremely similar to this but it all depends on whether the mod in charge has the player you are lolling about or not.

              Honestly hope Son is ok but having him off really keeps me from getting buried by a high score from everyone who owns him
