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.

    The joke here that the way this week is going means that this match is going to end 1-0 looks more likely every moment.

    1. Firminoooo

      • 4 Years

      Kane OG.

  2. Duke Silver ☑

    Woeful game so far.

  3. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Players I might consider getting rid of:

    Robertson
    Lamptey
    JRod
    Maupay

    I have 2FT and 0,0 itb. What to do here?

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Get rid of Maupay. Monitor Rodriguez

    2. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      J Rod to Zaha and Maupay to Antonio next week?

  4. ivantys
      1 month, 4 days ago

      So much toxicity over a 4.5 Lamptey just now and none on this game boring

    • Paul Psychic Octopus

      Spurs will have to score twice before Burnley change the way they play and have anything like a high line.

      Just looking at next week's fixtures. Loads of captaincy options

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Kane

        that's what people said this week!

        Who's your front-runner

          1 month, 4 days ago

          Salah at the moment. Can't see him blanking for 2 home matches in a row.

      4. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Salah

        1. Joey Tribbiani
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Oh you going with Salah?
            *switches from Salah to Kane*
            😀

      5. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Kane and Son not penetrating the box, just fore playing around the edges.

        1. tiger
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          Burnley not leaving many holes open

        2. ALI_G
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          not stroking the ball around enough

        Well that was rubbish. Get lo celso on.

      7. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Imagine having Son and Kane

        1. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I imagine it's been great fun the past few weeks.

        2. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Nope, imagine having Kane, son and reg!

        3. lindeg
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Son and Dier

        4. Gobigorgohome
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          over Zaha and Bamford 😉

        5. Noah’s Ark
          • 8 Years

          Imagine owning anyone other than Bamford this week...

            Lol to that haha.
            Best quote I’ve heard for this GW !

        6. teneighty
          • 5 Years

          They're on par with the rest of my team this week.

      8. aborg
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        For once I don’t mind watching a boring game like this one !
        From a Son and Kane non capper 🙂

        1. baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Yes, since C Salah failed it really doesn't make big difference how many points they get or don't get.

          1. aborg
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            It does if Kane or Son score as we will drop badly down the ranks !

      9. Van der Faart
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Very odd behaviour from Oliver there. Wasnt even 3 minutes played, Spurs on the attack and he blows for half time.

        1. how now brown cow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Especially as took about 5 to patch toby up.

          Maybe he was as bored as us.

        Did everyone forget how Dyche and Burnley plays? This is classic Brexit football from Dychey

        Top 10k casuals finally exposed. Imagine capping Kane away at Burnley...

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Except that every captainable player actually blanked this week 😀

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

          There is still another 45 mins left to be played...

          Lol, after all this time, I still can’t work out if you are serious or not!

        1 month, 4 days ago

        Its nice being a son and kane owner/non capper. Its nice if they dont score, it'll also be nice if they do. Happy days

        1. FC Hakkebøf
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Can't be both surely.

          1. beric
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Yeah its nice man. Either way

          2. baps hunter

            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Impossible to know which is better tbh. Even Ragabolly is here and even he can't calculate / tell with certainty the correct answer imo.

      13. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Burnley at home is the best defence in Europe

        1. GloryManUnited
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Yeah and you provide great takes on here.

          Hard pass

      14. Chucky

        Glad I didn't sell Ings for Kane.Burnley away was always going to be a difficult fixture for kane..

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA

          Are you doing it next GW?

          1. Chucky
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            no,I think Jimmy, Ings and DCL is a good enough front three...

        2. Firminoooo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          +1, only Jimmy.

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

          I did Ings > Kane this week, thought it might sting me this week (and look like it is going to) but I don’t mind, I wanted the switch long term

      15. Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Son and Kane to Zaha Bamford free up a lot of cash and can get

        Bruno KDB Salah Mane

        as midfielders

        1. Chucky
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          sell,10.8 m for a DM is too much...

      16. fr3d
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Burnley provide no service for their Australian strikers

        1. Rocky FPL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Burnley has strikers?

      17. Nice to Finally Michu
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Che Adams and Vardy nailed to start up top for the next Nations League match?

      18. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Imagine owning any players - just lol

        1. Rocky FPL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Bamford and Zaha owners commenting in 3, 2, ..

          1. TheDragon
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            If you own Bamford and Zaha then enjoy your day in the sun.... even a blind squirrel finds nuts some of the time

            1. ReindeerHotdog
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 4 days ago

              I'm pretty sure blind squirrels end up dying quite quickly and probably without finding any nuts.

              1. TheDragon
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 4 days ago

                That’s sort of part of the metaphor in this scenario from an FPL perspective

            2. potatoace
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Now I'm thinking about blind squirrels , and I'm sad.
              Thanks.

        2. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I just broke 20 points, get in.

          1. TheDragon
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Oh mate... I’m currently on 20 points with Kane and
            Son playing. I feel your pain

            It’s unbelievable - my team was perfect for this week, many on here would have said it was optimal

            1. Would Ed Woodward
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 4 days ago

              I'm on 21 with the same, yep lol, my team looked so good until the actual games. Pulisic is my highest scorer with 3.

        3. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I assume Maupay is now your all time favourite FPL player after these last couple plus last season.

          1. TheDragon
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            In an alternate universe he has got back to back braces and Lamptey back to back double digit hauls

            Him, DCL and now Bamford are my all time worst

            1. Would Ed Woodward
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Did you play Champions League fantasy?

              1. TheDragon
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 4 days ago

                No - just one type of fantasy football pain is enough for me
                This season

                1. Would Ed Woodward
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 4 days ago

                  Same normally but I tried it for the first time, actually had a good start lol, I'm sure it'll revert back to the usual this week.

      19. Hybrid.power
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        It's a cruel joke when you transfer out Reece James who didn't start the last two games. He plays, keeps a clean sheet, bonus points, and your replacement is benched.

        1. GloryManUnited
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          LOL this is tough

        2. Rocky FPL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Dont you have Justin coming on?

        3. ivantys
            1 month, 4 days ago

            And your replacement getting the first CS of the season his club has.

            Must be a few in the same boat. Hard luck, couldnt have seen it coming

        4. GE

          Maupay -> Who?
          (0.0 itb)

          1. F4L
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Bamford

          2. Over The Mounié
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Mitrovic

          3. Rocky FPL
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Antonio if he is fit, else Bamford.

          4. ReindeerHotdog
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Toss a coin.
            Get out the ouija board.
            Read some tarot cards.
            Ask a pensioner.

            At this point it seems like that's the right way to go about things.

        5. Kaneyonero
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Imagine Bamford scoring at hattrick... Oh Wait

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

          Don’t regret Mitrovic -> Kane for a hit even if he blanks. Would be priced out of the moves I made if I didn’t do it. Taking a hit in a low scoring week is extra painful though. 26(-4) atm

        7. F4L
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Hopefully Jose makes some half time subs
