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.

      I’m a Salah capper, Son owner. OR around 2.5m and just laughing at myself.

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

    1. El Lobito 10
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Or a sign of performances to come

      CS, scored the winner. Has to be 3 bps

  6. El Lobito 10
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Sterling out for:
    A. Salah
    B. Mane
    C. Fernandes

    1. Wag the Drog
      • 9 Years

  7. trinzoo

    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...

    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
      3 months, 3 days ago

      So-called FPL assists in general are a joke

    2. Drizz ✅

      KaNe NoN OwNeR?

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

        Kane owner with a sense of justice!

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

  10. Niho992

    Reguilon owners are winners. Well done mates !!

    1. Bushwhacker

    Captaincy pick next GW will be a headache..

    1. El Lobito 10
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Isn't it always

    2. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Kane or Son.

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        or Salah..

  12. Sir Alex Telles.
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    49(-4) all out. Will take it and run.

  13. Drizz ✅
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Sky Sports just mentioned Kane assist

  14. Van der Faart
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

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

    1. El Lobito 10
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      And Dyche is a twaat

      1. Van der Faart
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 3 days 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
      3 months, 3 days ago

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

      1. Van der Faart
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 3 days 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
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

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

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

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

  15. Chucky

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

    3 months, 3 days ago

    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.

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

  30. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 3 days ago

    60 all out
