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.

    Own both Son and Kane and my red arrow got bigger with that goal

    1. Ibralicious
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 19 hours ago

      Probably because of not captaining either one

    2. KAPTAIN KANE

      Don’t worry about rank for now, the points will benefit in the long run 🙂

      wait for another goal

      Plenty own Doherty, Lloris too

        Didn’t think of that

    Those who captained Salah over Kane this week... *clown emoji* x100 *

      People who aren’t even in the top million... * clown emoji* x100 *

        Mate, you're barely scraping the top million and after your result this week I doubt you're staying there any longer lmao

      You mean made the logical home captain choice?

    3. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 19 hours ago

      It's not a huge difference, 2pts v 5pts is hardly a captain fail.

    70% of the top 10k own Son and Kane
    Majority captained Kane
    Top 10k extend their lead over the casuals!

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year

      Pretty sure the top 10k are as casual as the bottom 7m.

    2. The Mandalorian

      The top 10k are the casuals.

    People here told me thats crazy to C Son ahead of Salah this GW

    1. Hect.OR 98th

      27 days, 19 hours ago

      Make your own decisions. I made the wrong choice, I own it. So should you.

      1. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 19 hours ago

        Just said it. ''Crazy'' is bit harsh. Still thinking that was 50-50 call

      Don’t listen next time

      No one knows what will happen in these football matches.

      Do you really think Burnley away is an easier fixture than Sheffield United at home? Especially when we're talking about Salah and Liverpool?

      Salah was 100% the logical choice. Unfortunately that's not how this game or, in fact, life works.

      You can be logical 100% of the time but that doesn't mean things will always go your way. Hindsight is a wonderful thing but it often comes too late...

        Hindsight comes to late?

    Kane’s going to break Henry’s record at this rate

      Decided to hold Jimi for this week rather than bring Kane in for this match. Think it was the right call regardless of what happens tonight.

      Main point of frustration now, is that he'll more than likely rise again before the Antwerp game. By holding off because he's got another game to come I'm probably going to lose 0.2m if not 0.3m.

      That's priced me out of being able to bring in Zaha at the same time. It's one thing having these ridiculous GWs but the price changes are so volatile this season. At least it certainly feels like there's much more movement even with a busier fixture schedule.

        I think you just have to get Kane in before the EL game i think. Im in same boat and I think Vinicius hopefully will start that game

      2. F_Ivanovic
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 19 hours ago

        That was precisely why I got Kane in - the inevitable price rises IF he did well again. Otherwise I'd have gladly stuck with Jimenez this week

      Son on for averaging nearly 18 points per game in his 3 away fixtures, emmm.

      5. Salarrivederci
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 19 hours ago

        If that is not a Kane assist the FPL game is broken.
