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.

      Erm... wait for news?

      Despite the certainty of many of our community doctors/physios, none of them really have any idea on the severity of his injury

    Hmm, shouldn't have captained Son. He never does well v Brighton. It was probably the only decision that I wasn't entirely sure of. But in my defense it was either him, mane, sterling, or ings. Grealish never came in my thoughts.

  14. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Kane and Salah captains past 2 weeks, picked the wrong one both times lol

  15. Karan14

    Penalties save Kane & Salah cappers

    Group hug for us Mane & Son cappers 🙂

    1. FPL_trail_runner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 18 days ago

      To be fair.

      One was a pen, the other wasnt. Kane super lucky this week.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Both were pretty soft. Can argue both were not pens.

        1. FPL_trail_runner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Salah had contact on the ankle

          The Kane pen was one of the worst Ive seen

          Its 6 points so nothing massive

      2. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Whine all you want, poor refs have screwed everyone this season, get used to it lmao

      3. BeaversWithAttitude

        Salah drama queen pen.

    Son off

  17. Niho992
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Kane (C) big fail

    1. Please Answer Me
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      How? The other options were Son and Salah. He'll only get 1 or 2 points less than Salah and he beat Son

      1. Slouch87
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Yeah it's just the ultimate simpleton trying to wind people up. Ignore him - he really is a complete tool.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          Tools are useful though.

          1. Slouch87
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            This one isn't.

  18. Egg noodle

    Is it time to get the highly overrated Soucek?

    1. Egg noodle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      (Let's be honest, everyone was expecting him to have scored like 2-3 goals by now. At least)

  19. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Best 5.2 defender that's not Zouma?

    1. W
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Cresswell

      1. Right In The Stanchion
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Have owned Cresswell numerous times over the years and he’s always been a massive let down

          1. Frucke
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Same here

        • 10 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

          • 5 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Another pretty substandard gw with 49.

      2. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Top 10k average is 47 and overall average 43.5 so wouldn't describe it as 'substandard' tbh

      3. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 18 days ago

        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

      3. Niho992
        • 2 Years

      4. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Same for Jota stealing Salah baps. The BPS is broken

    11. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Kane not near the BAPS

    12. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 18 days ago
