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.

    Spurs should set up with Kane in the middle behind Son - Bale - Moura

      Lol Moura will be straight out.

    Right Werner JRod to Ings Son (-4) could be the move

    1. Chilli Heatwave

      Yes

  9. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

    How many chances is Kane creating 😯

    Who hit the post?

    1. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Son

  11. Dr. Rog

    Kane is a good pick on current form, and with the fixtures.
    United up next could be a cricket score

    1. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      That's highly unlikely IMO

  12. Puntillimon
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    As a son and Kane owner this is fun to watch! But damn could have had so many points by now

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Boohoo fella lol, they’ll come

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

      I've got neither. I predict Son and Kane will both score at some point.

  13. Silent Friend
    • 9 Years

    Son shot off target -bps

  14. DAZZ
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Kane looks hurt

    1. Zim0
      • 2 Years

      Emotionally?

  15. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Son missing sitter, Kane A wasted

  16. Neevesy
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Kane is world class when on form. Can play poacher, number 10, winger, midfield. Probably do a shift in goal, and would probably be thier best Centre half.

    1. Silent Friend

      CDM

    Genuinely considering a hit or Werner and fodder to fodder and Son. Even though I just WC!

    1. DAZZ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      You’ll be doing that all year with all the options mate, just stick with your WC

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

        I know, that's what I'm thinking. Hold for 2fts the week after. Didn't really want Werner but feared the WBA fixture hurting me. Spurs keep this kind of play going and add Bale then they'll be scoring plenty

  18. Pedram

    2 months, 8 days ago

    I hate this game yet I keep playing it, why?

      You haven't found another hobby.

      Addiction. Counselling is the only answer

      You hate your wife ?

  19. Rolls-Royce
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Newcastle haven't turned up at all. Could be a huge score this if Spurs are clinical

  20. Stand By Mee
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Is Bruno to Son a good move?

    I am happy with his 12 points this week but it's just scary not owning Son or Kane right now

    Also, it would give me 1.5m to invest elsewhere

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I wouldnt

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Son isn't on pens...

    3. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Son will be massive sold this week when he doesn’t score

    4. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      No, it really isn't. He's a pic and forget IMO with the number of pens he'll get and score

    5. Stand By Mee
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      cheers

    6. St. Stephen XI

      What do your eyes tell you? It's a small sample, but United look like they have some sorting out to do while Spurs look like they've found their stride.

      The one thing that would make me reluctant to move off of Bruno is the avalanche of penalties awarded this season and the feeling that the new handball rule is going to cause that trend to persist all season. I think I'd prefer to go with Son plus 1.5m, but I can definitely imagine a universe where I would come to regret it.

    Dier heads wide from som corner

  22. DAZZ

    Newcastle led us all into a false sense of security with that win against West Ham ffs. They’re useless

  23. Forza Papac

    How is this only 1-0?

    Dier wastes Son A

    Doherty looks like hes been preserved in an ice block since 10.000 BC

      Like a squirrel with a nut?

  28. F_Ivanovic
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Expected Moura to finally do something this game. He knows he's out the team when Bale is fit so is bound to be putting in that extra 10% effort over the next few weeks.

  29. Infected by ebolasie

    So what do we think so far? Are Spurs in good form? Or are Soton and Castle just very bad? Or were Everton just very good?

  30. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 3 Years

    Kane is overdue a penalty
