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.

    Where`s Kane`s assist gone...??

    1. Rupert The Horse

      Doesn’t matter

    We all know it’s a Kane assist. Just relax.

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

      Don’t be so sure, still waiting for my Kane goal at Stoke

    2. gunthourinho

      Nope it isn't. Read the rules.

      1. Salarrivederci

        Read the rules what?

        It's simple. Like when a player takes a corner trying to cross the ball to anyone jumping high enough - Kane is heading it further into the box trying to find anyone jumping high enough?

      2. Rupert The Horse

        • 7 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Why wouldn’t it be an assist. He headed the ball to Son. That’s an assist. Even being registered as an assist by the commentators and the on screen stats.

    Lukaku got Kane's assist boys

          I’m not old. It’s only my 14th season. Ah damn it.

    Great job from FPL towers to remove assist. It wasnt intentional anyway.

    1. gunthourinho
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Exactly. It was not an assist.

    2. Salarrivederci
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      That was not a head on target - so ofcause it was intentional to pass it through to whoever ran into it.
      One of the more clear assist.

  5. COK3Y5MURF
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    According to the rules, that's not a Kane assist

    1. gunthourinho
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Spot on

    2. Twisted Saltergater

      😆

    3. IRBOX ⚽

      How so?

    4. Forza Papac

      Please explain

    5. Salarrivederci
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      You're joking right? 😀
      That kind of assist are given every GW

    6. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Why? Because it’s a header?

    7. Duke Silver ☑

      How're the fish this time of year?

    8. JabbaWookiee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Couldn't believe they gave it in the first place. At least normal service has been resumed.

    9. mg12
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Scanning the rules, but didn't see an explination why Kane's header isn't registered as an assist. Anyone understand why no assist on Son's goal?

      • Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Mmmmm. Tasty bait.

    10. Better off with a pin and a…

      Ooooh. Attacking points. What a novelty...

    11. jonnybhoy
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      TAA, Podence + Jiminez to Targett, Zaha and Kane for -4pts? 

      Yeah or nah?

    12. fr3d

      Is Ziyech just a glorified Dwight McNeil?

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

        Unsure on Ziyech. Guy is not an up and coming youngster and is unproven in a major league.

    13. ivantys
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Lamela not getting punished for that?

      • Kellz86
        • 3 Years

        Mourinho Masterclass this

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Son masterclass

      • Stand By Mee
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        I own both Son and Kane but captained Salah, so this Kane assist removal actually made the red arrow a little smaller.

        Distance to 10k average went from 39 vs 49 to 36 vs 44.

      • Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Lamela is a liability

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Why is VAR not looking at this?!?!?

            • 11 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            I think they’ve had a power cut tonight

      • Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 3 days ago

        SEND HIM OFF

      • Sam-not-so-wise

        lol I hope that wasn't Kanes assist

        1. Bielsa's Blue Bucket

          Classy

        Lads, how many pts did you colect?

        1. Esalman
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          57 if Regui does not come on.

      • I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Kane assist ruled not as assist by Livarpool's VAR referee

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 3 days ago

          The one that gave a non-penalty and disallowed a perfectly good winner at Everton? That VAR?

          1. Dreaming of glory
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            Was a pen.
            As for mane goal certainly strange but must have been mms off on var.

            Only solution is to make the lines thicker to allow a margin of error

      • Tomerick
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        I want my assist points back post haste.

        1. Seanigula
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Nope, was just ruled no assist

      • The Reptile
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Why has Kane assist been chalked off?
        He headed it sraight to Son

      • valurth
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Anyone saw the Brighton goal (Own goal) today, was it a Lamptey assist that is missing?

      • 7shadesofsmoke
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Bale play tonight?

      • Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        They gave Kane the assist but didn’t update his bps, so are sorting it out.

      • Dreaming of glory
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Whats the assist rule? Why was that taken away?

      • Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Kane and Son owner and the goal was just barely a green at rank 1m...

      • Make United Great Again
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        39 points all out after Son bonus. I’ll take that

        1. Sam-not-so-wise
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          that's pretty bad

      • Dr. Ante Pavlovic
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        A clear assist for Kane, can't see why it's not given.

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Being fixed for BPS apparently . . and guilt over Dier's foul.

      • _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Son off

        1. 7shadesofsmoke
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          red card?

      • Londongeezaa
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        VAR removed Kane assist. New rules apparently

      • g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Sonny off

      • Niho992
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Kane claimed that wasnt assist, it was his goal !

      • Sun Jihai

        Assist given on the Twitter

        Goal - SON
        Assist - KANE
