Reguilón benched as Gameweek 6 continues to hurt FPL managers

The latest unfortunate turn of events in Gameweek 6 of Fantasy Premier League is a Monday-night benching for Sergio Reguilón (£5.6m).

Over 120,000 Fantasy managers picked up Spurs’ left-back for Gameweek 6, inspired by his role in the 6-1 win at Old Trafford and the 3-3- draw with West Ham.

However, Jose Mourinho had other plans, selecting Ben Davies (£4.8m) on the left-hand side of his back-four at Burnley.

Serge Aurier (£5.2m) has suffered the same treatment, replaced at right-back by Matt Doherty (£5.8m).

Thankfully, the rest of the Spurs team lines up mostly as we expected with the heavily backed pairing of Harry Kane (£10.9m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) selected at centre-forward and left-wing respectively.

All eyes will be on the right-hand side of Burnley’s defence tonight as Matt Lowton (£4.4m) comes in for his first start of the season.

His preparation for this match has not been ideal as he only recently returned to training from a knee injury, forced into action against Spurs with Phil Bardsley (£4.5m) and Gameweek 5 stand-in Erik Pieters (£4.4m) missing out.

Ben Mee (£4.9m) remains absent so Kevin Long (£4.5m) is James Tarkowski‘s (£5.4m) centre-back partner once again as Charlie Taylor (£4.5m) continues his extended run as the first-choice left-back.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; C Taylor, Tarkowski, K Long, Lowton; McNeil, Brownhill, Westwood, Gudmundsson; Wood, A Barnes.

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; B Davies, Dier, Alderweireld, Doherty; Højbjerg, Sissoko; Son, Ndombele, Moura; Kane.

    FPL assist not given ?

    I actually think Son is underrated. He’s got such a good all round game.

    1. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      So many people call him underrated I'm starting to think he's just rated.

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        I never got it why Pocetino was always subbing him early

        Can you be just ‘rated’? Is that the same as being just ‘whelming’?

    2. diesel001

      He is underrated. Why aren't Bayern, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Man City, Juventus interested in him. He is one of the Top 50 players in the world IMO.

      1. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Why would Spurs sell?

        Still got another 3 years on the contract.

        1. diesel001

          Spurs aren't in the highest echelon. Hence why Eriksen left, Bale was sold, Modric went etc.

        He's far better than Neymar

          Funny comment

      Forget how's he's rated. He's extremely underpriced this year in FPL. Essential when fit this season imo.

        We always hear about Sterling, Mané, Salah but look at what Son does every season. Goal of the season last year. He’s just not hyped by the media.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I honestly rate him above Sterling and Salah.

        2. Tinkermania

          It's because they big up someone else at that club. Someone English perhaps.

    Watching a slow stream, came on here to say Doherty's been absolutely rubbish, thanks for the spoilers!

    Always hold your moans until the final whistle.

    Why oh why did I switch to captain Mo

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Chill it’s just an assist

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        I was never captaining Kane, what do you mean chill?

        I had it on Son

  8. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Get Reguilon.

  9. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 3 Years

    1. fr3d
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Not sure

      1. Sam-not-so-wise
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 4 days ago

        did Kane assist?

        1. Duke Silver ☑
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Our sources are confirming a Kane assist.

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Did Dier foul?

  11. Daniel - Go Granville
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Kane De Bruyne delivers again. This is unbelievable. if they continue they might surpass the Lampard and Drogba record.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      They will definitely surpass it imo.

    HERE COMES THE SON

    1. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      He’s alright

  13. Daniel - Go Granville
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Already not a happy Salah owner. 7 pts and 2 pts since I own him. He might go for KDB soon. No chance ~I am selling Kane or Son

  14. Ibralicious
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Currently compiling all the Kane & Son hate comments on this article. Absolute scenes when they link up game after game. If you don't own them, you've lost FPL at this point... 😀

  15. Kellz86

    Harry Kane for the 89th min goal for max bonus sweep

  16. JONALDINHO
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Kane and Son combining to put me up to 36 pts!

  17. HippY
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    There is a God!!!

    1. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      And he sent his Son to us !

  18. Wag the Drog
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    And I still don't have Son. I said if he scored today I would wildcard. Could also do Trent, Pereira -> Kilman, Son (-4)

  19. Daniel - Go Granville
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Anyone here captained Kane or Son?

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Everyone who didn't captain Salah

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Kane of course, a goal would be a treat here

  20. Hakim Ziyech
    • 1 Year

    Dammit

  21. The Mighty Hippo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Please keep Reguilon on the bench Jose. I've got Dallas waiting with his mighty 6 points.

    1. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      He's not going to bring on a 5ft 5in full-back when he knows Burnley will now just pump balls into the box

  22. Sir Alex Telles.
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    one more time please.

  23. The Mandalorian
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Another Son goal and its a green arrow for me.

  24. CroatianHammer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    urrrrgh.... was going to be +100K with a 0-0 and at 0-1 it's going to be a red arrow... maybe down 120K... horrible

  25. HMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    I own both son and Kane and dropped 50k rank with that goal. That’s hilarious (and yes I understand why)

  26. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    So Kane or Son (C) next time?

    1. JONALDINHO
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Brighton will offer more space for Son I think. I’m gonna go son

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Kane (read: stubborn)

    3. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Brighton without Dunk makes Spurs an option

  27. LǝgleSs e|even
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Kane nowhere to be seen on BAPS..? smh..

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Well he's hardly been terribly active in the game.

    2. sandman58
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Clears a cert goal off the line and assists only goal...surely he deserves bonus?

    3. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Good.

    4. Tinkermania
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      And rightly so. Just been strolling before that assist, which itself was a bad header for goal.

  28. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Kane will score on the counter and take the baps

  29. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Pythons out for the duo!

  30. Hect.OR 98th

    1 month, 4 days ago

    Captain on Son all week but switched to Salah on Friday. Darn it. Still, I'm grateful for the points.
