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.

    Why tf do I keep playing Lumptey over Charlie Taylor

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Lamptey is over rated, on here and in real life, will be another Danny rose

        He"d probably settle for 29 England caps

    The highest BPS in this game so far is 9.

    Imagine picking a player, thinking that he’s going to get you lots of points 🙂

      Imagine thinking Jose's team could attack.

    • TimoTime

      Start James next week and hope he starts? Would rather roll a transfer this week

      1. TimoTime
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Reece James that is...

      2. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Two rest days between Krasnodar and Burnley, so see how many minutes he gets.

        You'll be able to make a more informed decision then.

        I’m going to play him, hope for the best, prob ship him next week unless i think he’ll be first choice

      1st time I capped Kane this season. Oh and I sold Werner for him just before his haul.

      1. King Mo
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Kane scored the same amount of points as Werner that week so hardly a fail.

      At this stage I am happy if my players get 2 points. No YC, RC, OG or benched.

      Any news on when this Ferguson fella at Palace is gonna be fit? Getting quite annoyed looking at his red flag on my bench.

      1. Would Ed Woodward

        Next season, could be a good pick then.

        Not scoring much less than any playing defenders.

      3. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Given they signed Clyne, I think he's still way off.

        Just a guess though.

        How badly can Kane captain go?

        If he blanks he has done at least as well as every other captain choice

        Kane captainers are free rolling

        1. Hakim Ziyech

      1. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

      I can’t believe that I am actually going to be happy if I reach 30 points this GW !

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

        If son or Kane get sent off I won’t reach 20 points

        30 is a monster haul

        1. aborg
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Heh true , if result remains as it is I will be on 28 points, with only Saiss returning !

        2. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
