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 have stuck two pencils in my eyes. Can’t watch more of this nightmare FPL season.

    4. Utopsis

        Nothing could hurt / surprise me anymore this week, so reclining on said sofa to watch (hopefully) a decent game.

        I've loaded money on him and son anytime goal scorers to make me feel better

    5. Puntillimon
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      So if Kane’s EO is 26% for me, and son is not even listed as a threat... I should be hoping for a brace from both right? Is this how EO works

        Any player on your list of threats is one you want to blank.

      2. Seanigula
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        This seems like more pointless sh1t to think about...now I’m supposed to watch the game and hope the player I have doesn’t score? I think I’d rather just enjoy the sport then be that pathetic

        1. Whazza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          It's part of the game and common sense. Surely you know that having been on here 11 years

      3. Puntillimon
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Ah he’s 126% OR. So he’s 26% threat.. misread

        1. Puntillimon
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          EO*

    6. Brosstan

      In what kind of sample does Kane have 26% eo 😀

      1. djoker_nole
          2 months, 24 days ago

          OR 6m?

            Nope, iit has to be over 7 million

          7m OR

        • Seanigula
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          People Magazine’s World’s Sexiest Man...even Jonjo Shelvey got 28%

            Was hoping for 7 or 8 points out of Lamptey this evening. He seems to do poorly on the BPS front, too. 🙁

        2. BooYaKasha

        guys what's the shizzle on Ward?

        unfit or out of form

        have 2FT so may switch to Koufal or Kman from Wolves

      4. ivantys
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Any serious players who own Kane and didn't cap him would want him to blank.

          1. THFC4LIFE
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            I just want points

            1. ivantys
                2 months, 24 days ago

                It's gonna hurt you more that way

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              So the 60% of players that don't own him are not serious players ?

              1. ivantys
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  Do you even understand English? I said "who owned".

                  1. Gnu
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    2 months, 24 days ago

                    You never said "who owned".- just saying.

                    So explain then, why would I want him to blank when he could win my H2H's and get me a rise in my mini-leagues?

                    1. ivantys
                        2 months, 24 days ago

                        Then good for you. I don't want my OR to drop despite owning him

                  My OR is so bad that I’ll happily take mega hauls from Kane and Son despite captaining Salah

                    My OR is so bad I might consider becoming one of those FPL twatters and offer great advice like get Konsa in.

                    Every point Kane scores will negatively impact your OR since his EO is over 100%

                  That Digne red was a joke btw.

                    Ancelotti is probably right in what he said..
                    Pickford escaping a red card last week in hindsight, has resulted in a tougher penalty vs them on this occasion

                    1. Salarrivederci
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      Probably but that does not result in a more positive look on VAR tbf.
                      Simply shows that all beside line technology (offsides and keepers staying on the line at pen.) is still damn subjective.
                      I could understand, that the ref showed Digne a red, but VAR not correcting it was a damn joke.

                  Chances of Reguilón staying on the bench tonight, folks? (Have Chillwell first sub...) 😆

                    2 months, 24 days ago

                    I am in exactly the same boat, but 0 chance really. Look at Spurs bench, there are no other options to sub in..

                      I benched both Chillwell and Reece James. What's your problem? It was correct decision, outcome unlucky.

                      Incidentally Brownhill is a polite way of describing how my GW has gone ...

                    1 minute yellow card for Burnley...that is some going

                      Absolutely pathetic refereeing.

                          Ridiculous - in what planet is such an innocuous early challenge a yellow?! Thought he was supposed to be the country's best as well

                      Oh. So I guess the referee is going to decide this one.

                        Burnley playing the Stoke style

                        Want Trossard out of my team.

                        Want Graelish in my team.

                        Downgrade who to get the 0.9m needed? And to who?

                        a) Jimenez

                        b) DCL

                        c) Rodriguez

                        d) Keep Trossard

                        e) Dont get Grealish and do Trossard to someone who costs 6.3m or less.

                          out of the pan........

                          Jimenez to Antonio but probably not this week?

                        That wasn't even a foul (Wood on Lloris). Ridiculous.

                        Pope nearly spills the ball to Kane, collecting the ball.

                          Bossing the midfield.

                        Doherty with the most tense throw in ever.

                        Non Kane (C)‘s - we’ve survived the first 10 minutes

                          Hehe. My luck though always seems to turn sour in the last few minutes of every game this GW
