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.

    McCarthy, Nyland
    Trent, Cancelo, Saiss, Justin, KWP
    Salah, Sterling, Son, Soucek, Podence
    Davis, Ings, Jimenez

    Thinking of activating my WC. Worth doing so?

    Reasoning: Wolves fixtures getting tougher, not sure City is worth keeping, Ings flagged, need to address Davis and Nyland.

      I'd honestly wait to see if the IB is going to go ahead, and if it does, wait until it's over - the risk of multiple COVID-impacted players/teams has got to be significant.

        Oh. Thank you. Honestly didn't know that was a possibility.

    Honeslty if that was the other end or if that was utd we k ow for a fact theyd have given it

      Yep refs are scare of Mourinho

    I think the pen rule should be changed.

    (C Kane owner)

    1. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      What rule?

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

    That was probably a pen

    1. Free Hat
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      If a little hand on Bats shoulder is pen from Lamptey, this one surely is.

      Or maybe neither.

      But not one or the other...

  5. Silent Friend

    Lamptey or Bisoussma on pens? I have both of them today

      Dear Mr. Heung Min

      Can you please score a goal this evening as it would enable me to climb up the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) ranks.

      Please be advised that as I have elected you as the captain of my team this week, any points you score will be doubled when my total score is calculated.

      With this in mind, if you could repay my faith by putting in an exceptional performance, that would be appreciated.

      Kind regards
      Vazza

        I think the correct way to address him is Mr Son

        1. Vazza
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Ok thanks

        So glad my differential punt on Kane (c) is working so far!

          Score Lamptey. Make daddy a happy man again.

        4. Londongeezaa

          So out of Kane, Salah and Son I chose to captain Son.

          Add Saiss, Mitchell and Martinez. It’s been a tough week.

          1. Tony Martial
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Same here

            Be happy if you have only tough week.

        5. CloudSky
          • 4 Years

          Lamptey at 5.5 playing for Wolves at RWB would be fun I'd imagine.

        6. Davros
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          If in doubt, captain the penalty taker. Sad but true this season

          1. Gobigorgohome
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            the reason why we should captain Kane over Son
            and Salah over Mane

            1. Davros
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              On average I think that will play out, given VAR this season

        7. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Not taking into account today's matches who would you rather have in your team starting GW 9- Kane or Bruno? Have Son from Spurs, no United. United has better fixtures.

          1. Gobigorgohome
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Kane

        8. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Where is Maupay?

            we think

        9. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Is Kane the best English footballer to have debuted in the 21st century?

          1. Gobigorgohome
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Rooney??

            1. Nightcrawler
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 19 days ago

              He looked so old when he came up i forget he debuted in 02

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Too much to ask for a Lamtpey assisted March goal ?

          1. DA Minnion
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Yes

        12. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          If a player earns a corner, and a different player takes and scores directly from it, is an assist given?

          1. Gobigorgohome
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            no

          Lamptey is a pleasure to the eyes, hopefully, he'll get returns soon too. Happy to own him tbh

            • 6 Years

            Still only on for one point more than Salah

          Brighton have 3 players on the left wing snuffing out Son.

          1. Free Hat
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 19 days ago

            If they are for Brighton they must be on the right wing no

        18. Niho992
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Tottenham awful so far

        19. TimoTime
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Chelsea letting Lamptey go without a buy back clause was a strange one that's for sure....

          1. Fred54
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Maybe a buy back clause would have inhibited the move. Its not very common in the England.

          2. noone
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Maybe thought Reece James was a long term prospect! but keeping that clause wouldn't have hurt them

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

          Best pick for next 4?

          A) Zaha (LEE, bur, NEW, wba)
          B) Jrod (MUN, ful, LEE, bur)

          1. Ha.
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            A

          2. Sir Alex Telles.
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Jrod is the better player.

        21. Gobigorgohome
          • 9 Years

          this game does not suit Son

          Bellerin a good alternative to Zouma/Chilwell or just safer to go Chelsea?

        23. SomeoneKnows
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Martinez (Forster)
          Robbo, Chilwell, Saiss (Dallas, Mitchell)
          Salah, Son, Pulisic, Grealish (Soucek)
          Kane, DCL, Bamford

          Best way to use my ft and 0.8 itb?

          A) Pulisic > Rodriguez
          B) Pulisic > Zaha
          C) Saiss > Cresswell
          D) Saiss > Kilman

          Lamptey has 15 points but has risen 0.2.

          Strange one
