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.

    I’ll take those Wilson points, but honestly, what a joke...

    1. gooberman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Same. This is ridiculous.

  7. Wilshere Knowledge

    Wilson owner, Arsenal fan.

    Football ruined.

    1. BobbyDoesNotLook

      Respect for you. Pool fan here and that was the end of football. Var is good but the rules are not.

  8. Bartowski

    Wilson outscoring Kane & Son is somewhat unexpected.

  9. Flair

    2 months, 4 days ago

    That's horrifying for Spurs defense owners, feel so bad for them

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years

      Imagine owning 2 of them:(

      1. Auntie Niemi

          I'm trying to imagine.

      No son no win

    3. JBG

      Karma for that miss by Dier and karma for that Son HT sub. Love it!

      Serves Maureen right for taking Son off at half time 🙂

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        Was Son injured?

        Will be boring, it's all been seen before from him. He's yesterday's man

      Need a squad full of penalty takers.

      Son > Bruno looks likely.

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

        I'm on 5 penalty takers. Need 2 more

        1. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          I’m on KDB,Salah,Richarlison and Jimenez.

          Yeh looking at either getting Bruno in or Ings with Son money.

        To be fir, took almost 200 mins to get a pen today

        1. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          It still happened though and United will get a penalty a game the way these decisions are going.

    7. Atimis

      Was just getting ready to celebrate Davies' points D:

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 9 Years

        Me too. Absolutely FARCICAL.

    11. mgilbert86
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Its settled, just use all your transfer to bring in penalty takers

    12. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 10 Years

      That’s a pen

      1. Leonard hatred
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        the rules aren't great, but they are the rules.

      2. xHaTr
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Rules are rules

      3. Auntie Niemi
          2 months, 4 days ago

          They might as well introduce a rule that says you can't can't play the game unless you're handless smh.

      4. Sir Alex Telles.
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Spurs def owners.

      5. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        1) It's the rules not var
        2) other leagues have shown that players can adapt eventually after an initial spike when the rule was introduced

      6. Gazza2000

        Handball again

      7. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
        • 10 Years

        If the dier one was a pen that’s a pen

        1. Zilla
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Not inside

      8. Atimis
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        What a joke PL became...

      9. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Steve Bruce masterclass, insane

      10. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        This is different from Ward’s penalty yesterday. Nothing to complain about, Dier’s arm isn’t in natural position at all.

        1. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Yep, but its Spurs so will get more coverage on than ours.

          1. Klaren
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Unfortunately true

        2. Planet Jo
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          What is a 'natural' position when you're jumping to head the ball?

        3. Auntie Niemi
            2 months, 4 days ago

            The hand is always in an unnatural position when you're jumping.

        4. Silent Friend
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Lewis assist?

        5. Says
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          So is there a reason players can't flail their arms above their heads when jumping? or are they just deciding to not control themselves?

        6. camarozz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          This is a joke.

          Ramsdale and Davies clean sheets gone at 90 mins. I'm disgusted.
