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.

        Waiting Kane to score to win some decent money on my betsplit. Can he score? What do you think?

          He can. But won't

        Best budget striker until Jan?

        A) Watkins
        B) Mitrovic
        C) Brewster + change
        D) Adams

          Bamford should be on that list

            Better than any on that list?

              Yes - I think Leeds will create more opportunities for him. Adams would be the only other one I would consider at the moment.

          I'd rather have a non playing player than Mitrovic

          from that lot - Adams

          If the EO on a player is over a 100% and you haven't captained them your rank will go down as the player accumulates points.

            depends on your rank

            Depends on your rank tier. See the previous page where it was discussed.

              So has your rank gotten worse or better during the game?

            My rank is 800k and its gone to around a million since this game started.

              Surely that’s not true? There isn’t 2 points between 800k and 1m is there?

          Kane playing deep and picking out son/lucas might work against utd and saints but burnley defence is better than that.

          Early days in this match, but signs this GW that duller, lower scoring matches are making a comeback.

              That's why he was a bad pick to begin with, by me included.

          Spurs showing their true colours here. Toothless in attack against structured defences and only score on the counter

            See Everton and Newcastle games too.

            Reason I captained salah (not that that paid off :()

        • BoleynWin
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Blowing that 3-0 lead last game was always going to have a negative impact on Spurs mentally, it may just be a case that they take a while to get going again.

          1. how now brown cow
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Maybe. I think as Irbox rightly points out they find it hard against well drilled defences.

        • DA Minnion
          • 8 Years

          Spurs not looking good here. Burnley defense all over them.kane playing centre mid.

          Anyone now tempted to captain Salah instead of Kane next week?

        • Sir Alex Telles.
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          might not crack 40(-4) at this rate.

          1. teneighty
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Barely making it above 30(-4)...

            1. Forgetmeknot
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              I’ve only just cracked 20(-4)

                • 6 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                After a sensible -8 for Kane/werner, and another subseqnt very stupid set of transfers,and a 70 last week, I might struggle to get above 0 this week.

                sigh

        • Giggs Boson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Burnley being Burnley.

          Teams like Palace and Burnley are classed as 'banana skin' fixtures on my ticker. They are teams that defend so deep and compact that they can frustrate anyone on their day. Dyche and Hodgson won't change.

          Brighton might be more open for Spurs next week.

                Really? I think they’ve a strong case, whether it actually is or not is another story.

                  I'd be really surprised. Whether we agree with the decision or not it was clearly seen so not sure why they would overturn.

              No - since VAR looked at it as well, I do not think that’s likely.

                Hmm true. Hard to see them retrospectively over-ruling VAR I guess.

            I have Son, not Kane, half (6) of my ML have Kane, and have him as Captain.

            Jose, any chance of taking Kane off for Bale? lol

              For free, it was too obvious a transfer not to do imo. Kane had form, fixtures, eye test and stats, captaincy option.
