Ryan benched and Maupay not in squad as Potter makes surprise calls for Spurs clash

The two highest-scoring Fantasy Premier League assets feature in the late kick-off at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Son Heung-min (£9.5m) and Harry Kane (£10.9m) have plundered 134 FPL points between them in the first six Gameweeks of 2020/21 and both are averaging over 10 points per match in the current campaign.

Brighton and Hove Albion provide Spurs’ opposition this evening, with kick-off in north London at 19:15 GMT.

There are just two changes to the Lilywhites’ starting XI from the side that edged Burnley last Monday.

Sergio Reguilon (£5.6m) returns at left-back, while Erik Lamela (£5.9m) is recalled down the right flank.

Ben Davies (£4.8m) and Lucas Moura (£6.8m) drop out and are among the substitutes, along with Gareth Bale (£9.5m).

Dele Alli (£7.5m) is again not involved in any capacity.

While the Spurs’ line-up was mostly predictable, Graham Potter’s team selection was anything but.

Neal Maupay (£6.6m) is omitted and isn’t even among the substitutes, while fellow forward Aaron Connolly (£5.5m) is also absent from the Albion matchday squad.

Mathew Ryan (£4.5m) drops to the bench, meanwhile, with 22-year-old goalkeeper Robert Sanchez – unpriced in FPL – making his first Premier League start.

Pascal Gross (£5.8m) is brought into the side in Maupay’s absence, with Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) set to lead the line for the Seagulls.

Danny Welbeck (£5.5m) is on the substitutes’ bench.

Potter explained his decisions before kick-off:

Kane and Son were the first and second most-captained FPL assets of Gameweek 6, with a combined three million Fantasy managers handing one of the two the armband.

They are similarly well backed in the top 10k, with 78.56% of the leading FPL managers owning both players.

Kane has been captained by 58.03% of the top 10,000 bosses.


Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Doherty, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon, Sissoko, Hojbjerg, Lamela, Ndombele, Son, Kane.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI: Sanchez, Webster, Veltman, Burn, Lamptey, White, Bissouma, March, Gross, Lallana, Trossard.

      The referees are pathetic in this league. How is that not a foul?

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        It was.. but not a clear and obvious mistake by the ref I think

        1. Van der Faart
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Pathetic decision. He should be suspended for that

        Sole in to the ankle. But heel of his boot slightly touched the ball so I guess that's ok
