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.

    It's because of people like this that there aren't more people giving their opinion on here: https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2020/09/24/the-houses-money-why-maintaining-a-good-start-to-the-fpl-season-is-so-difficult/?hc_page=2&hc_sort_by=comment_date#hc_comment_22512271

    Hang your head in humiliation at Son's half-time sub after hitting the woodwork twice DOHER.TY you muppet lol.

      you went back through the comments on a 3 day old post to find that?

      bloody hell 😀

        Not hard lol, if someone says they're adding me to a spreadsheet I'm definitely going to share it when I prove them wrong lol. There's too many arrogant people who don't know football on here.

      Emotions are running high.

      Matchdays are so intense.

      Give your opinion then leave it there. If someone disagrees don't start point scoring or trying to convince them like your life depends on it. Do that and it will save you alot of unnecessary grief.

        Honestly I stuck to the task but loads of people think that you're "absolutely incorrect" and start insulting you if you differentiate from the masses whatsoever. See it all the time on here.

      2. G B
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 28 days ago

        Yeah. it's impossible to please everyone. So you have to learn to live with being disliked.

        1. stat sifter 888888
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 28 days ago

          Isn't there a way to give your opinion without being rude and assuming that other people have no credibility at all if they even slightly disagree with you? Poor etiquette is what it comes down to.

          1. G B
            • 10 Years
            1 year, 28 days ago

            That would be great! I struggled this a lot for a while too.

            What I learned is that there will ALWAYS be people like that, all the way through life. You have to come to peace with it, and learn to not let it get to you. It used to bother me a lot. Now I just smile and move on 🙂

            It's hard...

        I just avoid matchdays in general. I'll come back on at 11pm tonight after all the dust has settled.

    4. Zilla

      Couldn't it be.. I don't know maybe just an injury?

      1. stat sifter 888888
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 28 days ago

        Could be anything in theory but we all know that it was a tactical thing. Not a coincidence that it was Alli and then Son.

    man, if Son was taken off for a rest, that's dumb by Mourinho.

  6. The Mandalorian
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    Son is so respectful and tries hard, I doubt he's fallen out with Jose.

    1. TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 28 days ago

      He played 90 mid week. Must be a precautionary sub because a slight niggle or something

    2. Third Eye Vision
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 28 days ago

      Yes. He is always regretful after breaking another player’s leg. Love him.

  7. Flair

    Imagine owning Son when Timo gets that 1 extra point

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Awful

    2. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years

      Shocking, might give up, zero point or enjoyment to the game anymore

    3. BobbyV

      Well this week, the average is shocking...

      I'd be fine if it weren't for my Werner (c) fail.

      I'm doing well.

    6. Leonard hatred
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 28 days ago

      pretty terrible. 10 points from 3 played but one of my team isn't gonna play so a 1pt sub will come in for 11 from 4.

      still have 3x wolves, 2x pool, kdb and martinez to play though so i'm not giving up hope just yet.

    7. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 28 days ago

      8 from 3 so far

    8. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 28 days ago

      Bang average

    9. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 28 days ago

      Ayling highest scorer , who would have thought

    10. Nimby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 28 days ago

      32 from 7 including Son captain so far, so not exactly terrible. Have Davies playing too so hopefully he can get a clean sheet at least.

    11. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      5 from 4 lol

      1. Debauchy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    12. Noisy Neighbour
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Both!

    13. Auntie Niemi
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 28 days ago

      23 from 5 but could easily turn to 13 if Andy carroll equalises

  11. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 28 days ago

    Son injury or mandatory HT Mou sub?

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 28 days ago

      Must be an injury, wait for after the game interview

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 28 days ago

      Rest for now I think

    3. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 28 days ago

      Surely injury related. Even Mourinho couldn't make that much of a tactical mistake

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 28 days ago

        He does like a humiliating half time substitution though.

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 28 days ago

        It's not a mistake, have you seen their fixture congestion?

        1. SHOOTER MCGINN
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 28 days ago

          Of course but might want to consider actually winning the game that's being played first. It's 1-0 and Spurs aren't good at defending

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 28 days ago

            You're acting like Bergwijn has one leg lol

            1. SHOOTER MCGINN
              • 6 Years
              1 year, 28 days ago

              Lol he's decent enough as a player, but it's the psychological impact of the team having their key player taken off. We'll see how it goes. Got Doherty so just want to see a clean sheet for a change

  12. TomSaints
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    2. Traction Engine Foot

      He doesn't like scorelines bigger than 1-0

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 28 days ago

        Slated his players last week after scoring 5

  13. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years

    Won’t be surprised to see Son come back on if Newcastle equalise!

  14. All Hail K

    Changed my captain from Son to Werner at the last moment. Doubled my points. Mgr of the Year here. 🙂

    2. KAPTAIN KANE

  16. Dreams
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 28 days ago

    Mourinho would have realised that spurs probably would not need another goal. Hence rested Son I guess.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 28 days ago

      Dangerous at 1-0 no, even at 2-0 really. I think 3 or more for a decision like that

      1. Alexis Nonsense
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 28 days ago

        He is a master of parking the bus though...1-0 is like 3-0 for Mourinho

    Back to yesterday.... now that I watched it
    Utd deserved to lose
    Brighton though, missed too many chances
    ALL penalty calls were correct
    Only issue was game was over a minute before the handball

    Think I’ll do Doherty to Semedo if he looks decent today. Don’t see enough attacking threat to warrant Doherty here

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 28 days ago

      Semedo is great, go for it

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 2 Years

        Are you that confident with him? I've heard him get a lot of criticism while at Barca.

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Vastly different system, let's see what happens today

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 28 days ago

      Semedo will work well in wolves system

      Heard some quotes noting some of his poor defensive performances but how the wolves system will help him

    3. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 28 days ago

      Thought about it too. Could be closely matched though

  24. Mahjongking

    As a Spurs fan, I feel like I have seen this game before.
    I'm ready for the 2-1 loss discussion about what went wrong.

      Newcastle scoring 2 goals?

    Davies looking tired. Reguilon deserves to get 31 minutes or so today

      Davies survives to 60'. Time for Reguilon to get some minutes.

      Hope so and then Newcastle score

    Yep, I captained Son.

    Sums up my 1st 3 GW's. Could almost hitting 3 million rank by tonight.

    This game sucks sometimes 🙁
