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.

          I’m one too. Cause mine didn’t even play!

          Hilarious sour grapes.

        I do love Lamptey so much though. Doesn't always translate into points but he's been one of my favourite players to watch this year.

        im so enjoying the lamptey for pulisic autosub jam

          Sickening. I get KWP off the bench. This game blows.

      • Pariße
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        He got the ball, but how much of the ball you have to touch for it to not be a foul is not defined. It was a 50-50 and not an obvious and clear error by the ref, meaning VAR cannot overturn it and the original call should stand. As it did.

        1. Royal5
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          He didn't get the ball. I have spoken.

        2. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Yeah but after getting the ball (whether he did or didn't) he took out the player, stopping him from conituing on his way to meet the ball again.

          1. Pariße
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            You see these go both ways, which is why he couldn’t overturn it. One of the hardest VAR decisions in the PL though. I wish refs looked at situations more.

        Lamptey easily grabs 3 baps off Kane 😆

        1. Bruce Lee

          doubt it

      • Flair

        Lamptey unbenchable

      • thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Notice that Lamptey has crept up to 2 bps too... c’mon lad!

        Spurs not convincing imo

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Selling Lamptey was a stupid move.

            Thank you captain hindsight.
            Before I sold I was looking for captain foresight

      • The_FF_King
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Lamptey 1st sub to come on for missing Maupay. Giggidy-Goo!

      • FC Hakkebøf
        • 3 Years

          Justice will only be done with a Kane goal, assisted by Reguilon.

          With 11% overall ownership how do so many on here have Lamptey?!

          Is that 11% the entirety of FFS? Lol

          1. diesel001
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            11% = 700,000+ players. A large proportion of FFS users will have Lamptey
