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.

    2. MESSINHO
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Probably even 3 for Lamptey. There has to be mistake on Bale BPS.

  5. JJeyy

    Both Kane and Salah caps rewarded for non-pens lol

  6. COK3Y5MURF
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Salah, Kane, and Lamptey - all of their goals were due to poor refereeing decisions. Random lottery gameweek. Biased owners will disagree, lol, etc.

    1. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Salah Kane was correct decision, lamptey was the only incorrect one

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Agreed bar the Lamptey one, for me the if the foul is missed earlier in the build up it’s missed. Don’t like this idea of going back several moves before a goal is scored.

  7. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Rather Chilwell or Coufal as Saiss replacement?

    Tempted by Coufal tbh... savings could be useful down the line, Hammers have good fixtures defensively and Coufal got some assists too.

  8. abhirup780
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    68 all out for the GW. What will be the average score?

    1. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

  10. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    Best striker to get? Can afford any

    1. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Really depends on who you got.

      1. Hansel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Jimenez, Mitro - need a replacement for Ingsy

    2. MOTHRA
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Kane

  11. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    31 points... Can somebody reassure me that I don't need to take a massive hit? Already used my 1ft on Ziyech.

    Martinez
    TAA James Justin
    Son Bruno Ziyech Podence
    Kane DCL Bamford

    Nyland Saiss James Lamptey

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Saiss. Other than that patience.

    2. Sir Alex Telles.
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      take the hit.

  12. Trophé Mourinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Any suggested changes for my team? £1.1m itb and 1FT
    Guaita
    Lamptey - Saiss - Chilwell
    Salah - Son - Zaha - Trossard
    (K)ane - DCL - Jimi

    Nyland, KWP, Klich, Ferguson

  13. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Why is Kane so low on BPS? Isn’t a goal alone 25? He’s on 17

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Diving all over the pitch and otherwise invisible...

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        The invisible part would work in his favour

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Not to mention he never got penalised for diving

  14. Herman Toothrot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Cheers for the 9 points Gazza but you're out for KDB

  15. yousunkmybattleship
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Ryan owners, will he start next game I ask?

    1. Polka Wakey O'Dot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Why do you think that pretend owners of Ryan would know?...Do you think the manager has told them all?...

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 20 days ago

      was just for this week it would seem

  16. Party time

  17. Sir Alex Telles.
    • 3 Years

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

    2. antis0cial
      • 4 Years

      1. Chenku╰☆╮
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

    1. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I knew Lamptey would cover Kane.

      1. fachada
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        got Lamptey too coming for Saiss

    2. fachada
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Having no Kane, Vardy(C) +grealish+lamptey got me up 1 mil rank

  20. DA Minnion
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    72 with Dallas to go. Lamptey first sub.

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year

      Go away

    2. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      72 all out. First good GW this season. Bamford and Vardy will probably get me down in the shiiit again.

  21. Manani
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    ziyeah or grealish?

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I also want to know this

      1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        I am not convinced by Ziyech. I want to see more from him first

    2. FCRS BGD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Both

    3. Pukkipartyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Both a must.

    4. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Grealish. No rotation issues, better long-term fixtures, talisman, 0.7 cheaper.

  22. Big_Bear
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    I need a Mitrovic haul tomorrow for my mini league manager of month.
    3 points + Mitro vs Bamford, Dallas and Justin

  23. bitars
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    76 points this GW and i am really happy. Thanks to Lamptey and Wilson who i am lonely with in my ML.

    1. Party time
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Well played

  24. Firminoooo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Top 4m average anyone? Asking for a friend.

    1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Concentrate for greens in a row till GW 11. It has the most significant correlation on your final rankings

  25. JJO
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    And again my player loaing baps for nothing
    What a pos this game is sometimes

  26. Qaiss
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Kane is a cheat to keep doing that dirty backing into player thing.

    1. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      He even looks behind first.

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Always has been

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Yup and a diver too. One of the reasons I can’t cheer on England goals.

  27. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Kane is my captain but he deserved to lose the bonus points since he missed a big chance. Fair outcome imo. BP are great recently

  28. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Havertz - replace or give another week?

    1. Pukkipartyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Keep

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Most people have bigger fires to put out.

      Do you not have one of Pulisic, Ings, Rodriguez, Saiss?

  29. Tony Martial
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    50 all out anyone worse/better?

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Worse with 49

      Only 2 off my defenders played.

    2. Dthinger
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I think I’m at 57 with Mitro to play

    3. Pukkipartyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I think thats above avrage.

    4. Bushwhacker

    5. Nimby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Exactly the same post Lamptey bench points. I'm satisfied because at before this latest match it was looking ugly.

    6. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      72.
