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.

    Seeing a good few city triple ups here. I was hoping foden would be enough cover for now. Come on boy!

  2. Flair

    I wonder if Foden is up top or Raheem, they'll be swapping positions anyways

    1. Ask Yourself

      100% is Foden up top but yeah I imagine it’ll be quite fluid as they break down the low block

      1. Debauchy

        hoping

      I'd say Sterling furthest forward.

    In a league where there is a monthly winner for 50 quid and in second but the player in the lead has Kane Triple cap.. chances of Jane scoring as that’s really the difference

    1. TyroneGAA

      Kane *

      Newcastle defending like they are leading 1-0

      Hasn't been much threat this half, but 10minsto go it's anybody's guess

    Look, we all know that its Rodri playing false 9. We dont know why, but we know its true.

    Son has regressed somewhat since last week.

      Aye - that it be, that it be...

      I'd be ok if he regressed to the mean.... this is more than that

    4. Vazza
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      Regressed? He hit the post twice in the first half

      true. 12.5 ppg over the last 2.

      Last week was a freak game. If I owned a Spurs player I'd largely discount it when assessing their worth. We already know what Spurs are under Mourinho.

      Spurs crazy schedule was enough for me to sell him

      Very unfortunate.

      As a non-owner that was not comfortable viewing. Dodged a bullet.

      What did he go off for? Injured/knackered/tactical??

    Havertz > Mahrez maybe? I have the slot open!

    Doherty faking it

    Newcastle have only had 2 shots on target in the league this season. Both were goals. Now that is efficiency.

    1. jamiejoe
      • 5 Years
      26 days, 15 hours ago

      Efficient but not productive!

    If you own a Spurs defender welcome to squeaky bum time.

    Karlow has had a great game. Can Chelsea have him?

      Looks a decent shot stopper but in my opinion he seems bad at parrying the ball in a controlled manner. He has knocked the ball into dangerous areas a lot

      1. Leonard hatred
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        26 days, 15 hours ago

        he's got a habit of playing well then dropping a clanger

    Great dive from Doherty there

    Son can score more in half of a game than most other players in the full 90 mins ... it just needs to be the correct half

  16. Bubz

  18. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

    Has Wilson been utter rubbish or is there any hope in holding on to him for another week rather than taking a hit?

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