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.

      Spurs still in the title race. Poor performance and still won.

      Sterling out for:
      A. Salah
      B. Mane

      Frontline of Kane/DCL/Maupay

      2ft, 1.9 itb, not other issues

      Maupay to Ings? Y/N?

      Spurs are the new Man Utd in FPL terms. Just owning isn’t enough.

      Son owner and a net loss from tonight!

      Still would’ve captained Salah if I had my time again.

      Them’s the breaks...

    10. Brosstan

      How on earth is that an assist?! Kane tried to head on target but missed. So no rebound. And son wasn't his intended target either.. does Mark own Kane?

      1. El Lobito 10
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        So-called FPL assists in general are a joke

        KaNe NoN OwNeR?

          Kane owner with a sense of justice!

      3. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Eh? Dier commits foul, allows Kane to get to ball, ball lands on Son head, ball in goal. If VAR = blind then assist is Kane's.

      Reguilon owners are winners. Well done mates !!

      Captaincy pick next GW will be a headache..

      1. El Lobito 10
        • 3 Years

        Isn't it always

      2. Over Midwicket
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Kane or Son.

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          29 days, 12 hours ago

          or Salah..

    13. Teriyaki 69
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

    14. Drizz ✅

      Sky Sports just mentioned Kane assist

    15. Van der Faart
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Burnley need to get relegated. Absolutely pathetic football club. Thug football.

      1. El Lobito 10
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        And Dyche is a twaat

        1. Van der Faart
          • 8 Years
          29 days, 12 hours ago

          Totally. Moaning about tackles when Barnes could have been twice sent off and he didnt even get a yellow card

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        And yet Lamela is the player who should've been sent off.

        1. Van der Faart
          • 8 Years
          29 days, 12 hours ago

          Barnes somehow escaped without a yellow all game even though he was throwing elbows and kicking people

      3. Over Midwicket
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Just a pointless team. Filling out the numbers in the premier League season after season.

      4. Esalman
        • 11 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Give the Manchester clubs the same budget and then we'll see.

      2 defenders, Bavies and Dallas with 6 each on the bench, TAA, Coady and Lamptey sitting in my 3 ATB. 49 in the end. Could have been 59. Ah well.
