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.

    looking like a 0-0 or Moura/Dembele goal

      Doherty goal would be a significant rank boost to dead accounts

        Fully expect it given I chose this week to finally get rid.

      do you guys worry about team selected by % at all? I've just noticed I've got the most template team ever it seems with all 5 most owned mids and all 3 most owned forwards with 3 of the top 5 defenders. Is that a bad thing at this point in the season???

      1. IRBOX ⚽

        Depends on your rank

        I think about who will get the most points, if it's a tight decision between transferring in some players or a captain then ownership comes in to play

      Did not watch Brighton play:
      How did Trossard look? Time to get rid?

      Can use my 2FT’s to do
      Trossard + Podence (bench) + 0.6
      —> Grealish + Soucek (bench)

      Yay/nay?

        Trossard is decent bench fodder ; in some decent positions but the best you're likely to get is an odd assist.

      Great bandage job guys...taped right

        For 2nd half maybe

          True

      Why all the fake news about Kane EO? LiveFPL is a great tool. Go there and look around.
      If you are 400k or lower (a lot in this situation this early in the season) then every Kane point benefits you in OR terms.

        You plan to end the season below 400k?!?

            1 month, 6 days ago

            No but I'm below 400k at the moment and a Kane haul will get me a green even though not captained.

            1. baps hunter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              So green arrow is more important to you than getting closer (pts calculated) to top 400k. Ok... 😉

                1 month, 6 days ago

                To get to the top 400k you need to overtake the teams ahead of you. Kane points help to achieve that.

                Was only trying to do people a favour by letting them know.

                Have a look at my history and try and imagine in what world a 400k or even 40k finish would even be on my radar.

                Current top 400k is not the same as end of season top 400k

                1. baps hunter
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  Yes, that is correct. The main thing to follow is pts difference to top 10k. Many of those teams that are in top 500k atm will be in top 10k in the end of the season.

          Regrdless of where you are, Kane scoring will be good for you if you own since the likelyhood that is EO was over 100% for managers that you expect to finish in top 100k is small. (given that a lot captained Salah)

          1. RoysCallerAnne
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years

            Good point

            That we actually don't know.

          I have Kane and Son, my live rank has gotten worse since this game started.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          EO is a rather meaningless tool before the second half of the season at the very earliest.

          1. baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            That is correct. The main thing is to get more points than players who are good (or lucky) in this game.

        8. The Mighty Hippo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Forget EO. I don't want to look back at my GW history and see a week when I returned 26 points.

            Can tell by the start of this game

        Looks like Son and Kane blanks

      4. noone
        • 3 Years

        Don't have Kane at all. Only Son, can't wait for a Kane blank with a YC

        When you see the joke decisions that see players sent off for "dangerous play" getting away scot free here is odd.

      6. Pino
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I have only 1 player that didn't blank so far, Saiss. Had also Digne with-2p. Now I hope Kane (C) and Son can save my GW.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Its not a drama queen when 7 of your players score 2p and 1 scores -2p

            • 8 Years

            It definitely is because we all own the same players. Nobody is having a good week ffs. Relax.

          Need about 5 goals from Son in this one to get a vaguely respectable score... Not looking likely.

        • Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year

          Ah yes ; Burnley player booked in 1st minute ; Sissoko far worse . . .crickets.

                Jose is giving him some scraps to keep him happy. The odd league game and some non-important Europa and cup ties.

                This is a Bale game, Jose's a fraud benching him.

                  Attackers need to work hard. Lucas will run more. Bale come on for 20 mins or so.

                  1. ivantys

                      Burnley's attack is crap though

                    Problem is Bale plays where Son is . . . .

                      ?

                      Bale prefers RW.
