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.

    Whole thing a farce. VAR bad enough with the marginal nonsense but a penalty for that smh

    Folks, it wasn't Kane obviously.

    New strategy on free kicks- smash the ball into the wall at hand level.

    Kane red rescinded

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      It wasn’t. It was given to a staff member.

        err you need to understand what 'rescinded' means

    Best game as a non-owner of any I’ve ever seen!

    Joao Sacremanto sent off for Spurs. Not Kane.

    Not Kane that got the red. Backroom staff member. Phew.

    Wilson punishes the sellers!

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Certainly did!

    2. MSTRKRFTSMN

      Only if you sold him before the gwk

      1. F_Ivanovic
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Why did people sell him after the GW? Not even played yet and he scored in one blanked in another... what more are you expecting from a 6.5m striker? Now he has 2 in 3. Bet they feel like right mupptets with Burnley at Home up next.

        1. MSTRKRFTSMN
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          His price dropped last night. So I transferred him to avoid missing out on Jimi as he was rising. But Obvs he still played for me today and nails the pen. Winner winner, chicken dinner

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Hat trick against Burnley incoming

          2. F_Ivanovic
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Still you've sold a player who scored 18 points in 3 games that cost just 6.5 (now .4m) Jimi obv a good option but surely you had another striker who was worse or another bigger problem in your team?

            1. MSTRKRFTSMN
              • 8 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Wilson vardy Kane, now Jimi Vardy Kane. Had to be done to avoid a 0.2m hot. All about squad value early in the season

      That negative second half from Maureen was boring. Glad it blew up in his face.

  14. Londongeezaa

    No red for Kane but that’s still a huge Spurs assets fail today

    1. villa_til_i_die

      Spurs own fault, couldn’t put the game to bed. Fair play Newcastle!

  15. Atimis

    The game became a joke!

  16. Sebbo29

    Ramsdale and Doc CS gone last minute. Thank you very much!! And with such an unbelievable decision. This rule is just disgusting. Handcuff all defenders by the back from next GW onwards so this won’t happen again!!

  22. Pukki Blinders

    If Bruno's pen after the whistle counted then you better believe that Kane red counts!
