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.

          makes sense

          no wonder the assist was back Joe must have told him to pull up the replay

    Kane was too far forward for it to count as a proper assist.

  4. Londongeezaa

    Imagine thinking that Kane header was an assist 🙂

      You are so dumb

      It's these casuals. They just don't know the rules. 😀

    You can stop crying now.

    The way this game played out proves that Salah was the better captain on paper.

    But hey, all it takes is a lucky bounce sometimes in FPL.

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

      3 points in it, nothing

      Don’t be that guy. They were both on a par.

      I decided to go with Kane as I thought Liverpool would adapt to protect the VVD loss. But end of the day, both are on pens, and either could haul.

        Fair play. Win the coin toss. It's 3 points I'm not gonna cry over it.

        I wouldn't bother with transfers, whatever you think is the right move isn't this season.

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

      Why were some saying read the rules? Surely headers are the same as any pass?
