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.

      Who would have thought we would be scared of Mou attackers.
      Even more dangerous with Bale soon

      I'm with you. Better just to start doing something else, not to think about FPL and then only check how many goals Son scored 😉

      I'm an absolute sucker for anti-FPL (hoping assets I DON'T OWN blank and being stubborn about it) but in all seriousness just have concentrate on your own assets doing well with so many options.

        Yeah, for sure. I still have KDB(C), Sterling, Salah, TAA, Jimenez etc... Not bad players!

      Jose will be impressed by the opposition bus

  11. Hotdogs for Tea

    no high line for Son to exploit this week, just rubbish players

    If you are bringing in one of the everton boys right now, which will you go for

    DCL @7.4, Richa @8.0 ?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years

      DCL

    2. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      22 days, 8 hours ago

      Dcl

    3. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 8 hours ago

      Still DCL

    4. Tcheco
      • 3 Years
      22 days, 8 hours ago

      DCL. Cheaper, plays more centrally..

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        22 days, 8 hours ago

        Has scored 5 from open play. Without yesterday’s pen, Richarlison would still be goal less this year

  13. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Park that bus please

  14. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

  15. Infected by ebolasie
    • 4 Years

    Reguilon already on the bench, matter of time before he replaces Davies?

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      22 days, 8 hours ago

      Probably

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 8 hours ago

      Davies to LCB 343

      1. Infected by ebolasie
        • 4 Years
        22 days, 8 hours ago

        I have slight hope for this, but realsitically the 3 would be Sanchez, Dier, Alder

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 7 Years
          22 days, 8 hours ago

          I'm actually selling this week.

    Bet nobody has Darlow then!

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      22 days, 8 hours ago

      I would've started with him had he been 4.5

  23. Giggs Boson

    Kane could have had a brace already...

    1. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      22 days, 8 hours ago

      should*

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        22 days, 8 hours ago

        not "should", football has a keeper standing within the sticks.

    2. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 11 Years

      Darlow could keep his place at this rate!

  24. L'Aeroplanino
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    22 days, 8 hours ago

    Kane close

  25. Rolls-Royce
    • 6 Years
    22 days, 8 hours ago

    Might have to find ways to get Kane in soon

    1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 11 Years
      22 days, 8 hours ago

      Not for me hoping Son feeds of his work 1.5m cheaper plus clean sheets.

  26. Trophé Mourinho

    look how neat and toidy newcastle are at the back

    Are Leeds signing Cantwell? Nice.

    1. Silent Friend
      • 9 Years
      22 days, 8 hours ago

      why nobody go for Buendia??

      1. El Fenomeno R9
        • 5 Years
        22 days, 8 hours ago

        Strange,great player

    2. Forza Papac
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 8 hours ago

      Yeah they're keen to get him due to his man bun potential

    3. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      22 days, 8 hours ago

      I think so, fits nicely in their system. Not quite a CAM and not quite a winger. Would suit the role Harrison played today.

  28. how now brown cow
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    22 days, 8 hours ago

    Newcastle 16% possession.

    Still won 1-0 last season with similar

    1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 11 Years

      Have gone full Rafa-equese!

  29. Tcheco
    • 3 Years

    Hoping for a typical Mourinho performance vs. a deep sitting defense

    1. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      22 days, 8 hours ago

      Not looking good!
