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'd take a one eyed Jamal Lewis over Matt Ritchie. He is beyond awful

  12. ELTACTICO
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Kane is a machine, I would not want to be watching him play as a non owner!

          2 months, 4 days ago

          Werner wasnt a very good captain pick. Kevin will kill you later...

    • Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Kane will go back to playing CDM when we all get him

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 4 days ago

        That's why we don't get him

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

        2 months, 4 days ago

        He'll come good but cheaper strikers will too so no reason to have him. Go big in midfield

        Do you watch games at all? You seem to play fpl like the angry man trying to eat the soup with a fork! 😀

    • Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Darlow the next Emi Martinez... no longer staying around as a no.2 if these performances continue.

    • Silent Friend
      • 9 Years

      Kevin De Bkraine

        Newcastle should be thankful they got Darlow in goal than Kepa .. would be 3-4 down otherwise

            Can't wait to see if I will get my jammy points from Ayling from the bench 😀

          I think the Beatles wrote a song about him -

          Dear Podence - won't you come out to play?

            A +1 for lateral thinking 🙂

        Great lol, been priced out of Werner to Kane

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 4 days ago

          From one POO to another?

          Why didn't you do it last night?

          fpl statistics price site.

          Lots of other cheap options Jimenez. Ings, Bamford, Richarlison etc

        Anyone know if the final adjustments have been made to the SHU-LEE game? Wondering if Ramsdale has a shot at a bap.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          4 Leeds players ahead, though very tight.

      8. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Surely the likes of Salah, Sterling, & KDB can outscore Kane.

        Still not convinced he's worth investing in given the alternative big hitters...

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

          Same reasoning here for me

        2. Harry the Hack
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Odds are they will. It's why you also have to pay more for them.

        3. Tinkermania
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Of course. He has only shone against Saints and Newcastle. The aforementioned players are yet to play this dross.

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

          Aye but for brief periods he will outscore all of them. Can you time it though ?

          1. Tinkermania
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Great to see that we agree that he will be behind overall.
