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.

      Son owners, what are you doing ? keeping or taking a hit to bring in a replacement ?

      1. jimmyabs1987

        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

      2. Traction Engine Foot
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Keeping, as long as he's not injured

      3. Gudjohnsen
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        The only one I would take is Sterling and I am 1.1 short

      4. The Big Fella

        Need to see what the issue is first

    • Brosstan

      No one serious owns Mahrez anyway.. tell us if Foden plays or not.

      1. Tony Martial
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        I’m serious

    • jimmyabs1987
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Son had played 90 mins in all games so I think just resting him

    • Totti
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      any news will foden start?

        With Kun, Jesus, Bilva, and Gundogan on the shelf I don't see how he won't. Pep says he only has 13 senior players available.

        Wait ten more minutes and the official word should be out.

      Technically , if score remains 1-0 .. and son played 90 mins .. it would have 3 points instead of 1.

      Not bad xD

        I imagine there’s a fair amount of people who did early transfers on Martial / Werner (maybe even both) last night that own Son

        If he is injured does that fall under ‘serves you right’ or ‘very unlucky’ ?

            • 3 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            If you compare the lineup graphic to midweek when Delap was central, then it's Foden central.

            Will likely be fluid, let's be honest.
