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.

    PHEW!
    I nearly escaped Son Captain.
    So happy to get 2 extra points by Capping Werner

      Lol

    2. Manani
      • 8 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      actually it is only 1 extra point

      Son(C) + Werner = 4 pts.
      Werner(C) + Son = 5pts.

        After realising that, I'm not so happy anymore :/

        Just all the annoying lollers, trolls and anyone who says 'everyone told me to do this and it went wrong' when its literally two people giving their opinion, that add absolutely nothing to the site.

        1. Pumpy Pro
          • 11 Years
          26 days, 15 hours ago

          I wouldn't have anyone to talk to

    The Newcastle goalie (Darlow) might even be getting all the BAPs at this rate..

      Wc is long term

      Davies out the team soon most likely and still don’t trust Southampton defence

  8. Flair

    Are Newcastle in any danger of scoring?

    1. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      It’s possible

  9. Niho992

    4. Hotdogs for Tea

      Spurs much better with Aurier

      1. DAZZ
        • 6 Years
        26 days, 15 hours ago

        Nah definitely not. He’s a liability defensively, atleast Doherty is consistent

    5. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      Hendrick's finishing seems to have returned to its usual level

    6. Peter Ouch

      Why son got substituted

      1. The Mandalorian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        26 days, 15 hours ago

        He got caught stealing biscuits

      2. Bartowski
        • 10 Years
        26 days, 15 hours ago

        They need the drama for the Amazon Prime show.

        The moon came out

    7. King Mo
      • 6 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      Lascelles pretending he got hit in the nuts because it hit his arm 😀

      I swear these players forget we have replays.

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

        Maybe he had his nuts in his hand at the time.

    8. lilmessipran

      Wait, Son subbed at 45? Did he get injured or tactical?

      1. Nanoelektronicar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        26 days, 15 hours ago

        snap!

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        26 days, 15 hours ago

        Hope it's injury or I'm not going near Spurs ever again.

      3. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

        • 11 Years
        26 days, 15 hours ago

        I read he didn’t come back out at HT...that implies injury, no?

      3. Og
        • 4 Years
        26 days, 15 hours ago

        Tactically transferred due to injury

    10. puhd
      • 5 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      What happened with Son?

      1. Og
        • 4 Years
        26 days, 15 hours ago

        he got subbed off at half time

    11. Flair

      26 days, 15 hours ago

      Ah, this is why people don't trust Mou teams

    12. Seanigula

      SI says John Stones is out injured

        CSI?

            Okay 🙂

    13. TB303
      • 3 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      Looks like Son has a knock

    14. Londongeezaa
      • 2 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      Let’s be honest, unless Kane gets another assist or goals, it’s quite the fail for all Son and Kane owners.

      1. Dreams
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        26 days, 15 hours ago

        Still better than owning Werner and Martial.

    15. Infected by ebolasie
      • 4 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      Captain Salah might actually work out after Werner and Son blanks

    16. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      No Mahrez in the City squad today.

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          26 days, 15 hours ago

          Surely he'll start

      1. Nanoelektronicar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        26 days, 15 hours ago

        Well, that's a surprise, expected him to start this one.

    17. Noisy Neighbour
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      I’m sure with all his success last week and all the chances against Newcastle today, Son was starting to enjoy his football a little too much to suit Mourinho. Kane better watch how much he smiles if he scores again, or he could be next!

    18. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      Doherty looks scared to have a shot under Mou

    19. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      anyone do Alli to Son ?

    20. Drogo
      • 8 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      I get a feeling that Mou and Pep is playing FPL as well. Too many in Mou's mini league had Son as captain.

    21. drilsby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      Someone explain how that Kane shot was not "below the armpit" on the Newcastle defender? I'm just trying to understand these illogical rules.

    22. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      Suprised Newcastle aren't targeting Doherty's right side
