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.

    Davies owners looked at their team to see those juicy 6 points that are guaranteed to stay for the rest of the day?

    7. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Doubt many people have Mahrez anyway?

      1. Tony Martial
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        I do..

      2. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        I do

  4. Over Midwicket
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Good grief. Son to Ings for a hit is almost TOO easy.

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Yeh.
      I can afford Son,Brewster >> Foden,Ings -4.

      1. TyroneGAA
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Agree already binned Werner for ings and tempted by asm to Foden but only took one hit this year and planning to somehow keep them to a min

    2. mattk lfc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I'll probably do the same if Son is injured. Have to keep him if he was just rested imo, can't keep transferring out everyone who blanks

  5. how now brown cow
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    This game's gone flat.

  6. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Son is a troll. Do not own Son.

    1. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I had him for his 22 points. That's an average of 7.333 per game. That's decent.

      1. Debauchy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        yep only those that missed will say this

  7. Von Lipwig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    My rival captained kane. This 2nd half is much less stressful than the first

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Yeah, he looked likely to score a hatrick first half.

  8. Trophé Mourinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 9 days ago

    No Mahrez? KDB false 9 then?

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Sterling up top possibly

      Could be Foden

  9. Gobigorgohome
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    everyone owns KDB anyway

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Not really

    2. Von Lipwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

    4. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      None of my minileague rivals do. Everyone went for Son. I want to get ahead by 40 points

    Doherty assist/goal with a cleanie would make my dream come true.

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Sounds unlikely

  12. Rolls-Royce
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Safe to do Werner-> Ings tonight or would you wait for Liverpool (Salah, Robertson) tomorrow?

    1. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I did werner to Jimi last night

    2. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

        2 months, 9 days ago

        Yep, a lot of people shouting down rotation risk worries on this forum last week. They obviously think that Mourinho is playing the game for their FPL teams lol.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2. Manani
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago
