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.

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Havertz > Ziyech imo

    2. Royal5
      • 9 Years

      Looks good imo

      1. Sid07
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Chances of ziyech starting

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Depends on CL

    Chelsea let Lamptey go & kept James, not a good decision?

    1. Jimmers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      James is pretty decent

    2. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Both good players.

      Different but both have their individual strengths.

      1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        He has a buy back clause so a good deal

  5. FC Hakkebøf
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Wilson, Antonio or Bamford?

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Bamford

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Antonio

    3. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Whichever one is fit and on penalties

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Antonio and Wilson? Not possible..

        1. diesel001
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Is Antonio fit? Dodgy hamstring injury?

    4. Ha.
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Wilson

      1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Any news on Antonio? I have him

  6. F_Ivanovic

    lamptey bound to do something today vs us (Spurs)... far too often that ex Chelsea/Arsenal players score against us.

  7. Nightcrawler

      Dear Mr. Son

      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

      Lamptey is a season keeper IMO, so attacking.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Trent, Chilwell, Lamptey

      2. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Yes he can get u 2s and 1s all season if u keep him

      3. jamiejoe
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        But even with assists no clean sheet equals 3 points.

        The eye test doesn’t score ff points.

        1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          It doesn't matter if he is attacking when he is not bringing in pts. He blanked against WBA at home even

      4. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 25 days ago

        He’s great but not scoring. Frustrating, had him from Wk1

      5. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          What a site this is;- in the space of a very few posts you get
          1) Lamptey is a season keeper IMO, so attacking.
          2) Lamptey sucks
          3) Lamptey looking excellent

          Well that's settled then.
