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.

    What are folks doing with TAA if you’ve kept him this long?

      Ditching

        Thats what I’m thinking of too... Might just downgrade him prior to city so i have some funds for after the IB to upgrade elsewhere.

    2. Gandalf

      Keeping for now, more pressing matters and looked good the other day

      1. FC Hakkebøf

        This

    3. Do I Not Like Orange

      Out. Kept this long because I thought with Sheffield & WHU at home he had to get some points, but was too useless even for that.

    4. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Keeping, apart from this weekend fixtures look good and I don't need the money.

  2. Ha.
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Kane non owners must be pretty pleased so far

    1. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Given how terrible Spurs have been I think Kane owners/captainers will also be content so far.

    2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      He scored?

      1. Ha.
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Spurs look woeful

    3. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Not considering I captained Son, no.

    4. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Not really, he's on for 9pts. Most have him captained so I'm 18 down already and it's only HT.

  3. The Mandalorian

    Spurs can't get the ball off Brighton, embarrassing

  4. El Presidente
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Terrible from spurs really.. awful game so far

  5. Niho992
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Lamela is so bad football player.

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Correct

    2. $hahriyar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Grammatically not. But correct lol

  6. thetommy14
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Bellerin to Reguillon good move?

      1. Gandalf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Not fully nailed and fixtures turning quite soon so would avoid

        1. thetommy14
            2 months, 24 days ago

            My bad worded it wrong haha Bellerin in and Reguilon out.... good?

            1. Gandalf
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Ah ok, don't particularly like the look of his fixtures and would have thought low ownership. Chelsea or West Ham options look better

              1. thetommy14
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  Alright thanks

        2. LǝgleSs e|even

          Unable to watch the game. Who's playing betta? Kane or Son?

          1. Gudjohnsen
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Both invisible.

            Kane scored a Fernandes type penalty

          2. Gobigorgohome
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            both look lost

        3. camarozz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Reguilon to be replaced at half time?

        4. BENOIT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Whats the deal with Maupay absence? The video above was pointless

          1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            We speculate Covid together with Connoly but we don't know

        5. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Looks like Son is struggling because he has to chase Lamptey

          1. fusen
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            He is struggling as he is just sitting up top almost as a lone striker and Spurs have absolutely no control of the ball. Whenever they get it they just launch it forward and Brighton win control and then attack again.

            Son is literally just being left alone further up the pitch.

        6. Gobigorgohome
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I can sense a repeat of Newcastle game the way Spurs are playing

        7. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Jose not happy expect changes

          1. Gobigorgohome
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            like Subbing Son at HT?

          2. diesel001
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Hopefully Lamela and Ndombele off. Bale and Lo-Celso on

        8. Gudjohnsen
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Brighton are an entertaining side.

          They play some good football tbh

        9. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Next GW Son looks like the best captain

          1. Super Saints
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Agree

          2. drughi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Yes

            1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Let's do it

          3. Over Midwicket
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Kane. Better against busses.

        10. FPL_trail_runner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Still not getting Kane...

          Rank almost doubled today to 600k

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Nice work, impressive without Kane, though imagine if you did have him!

        11. Doctor Evil
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Kane Scores and my rank drops even though I own Kane

          1. Ha.
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            140%

          2. Super Saints

        12. jai1212
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          This is my order of players I want to replace, do suggest me if I should change it:

          1. Jimenez
          2. Saiss
          3. James
          4. Sterling

          Have 2 FT.

          1. Gudjohnsen
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Saiss has to go imo

          2. LǝgleSs e|even
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            4

          3. Stoic
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Saiss over Jiminez

        13. Silent Friend
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Maupay to Bamford or Wilson?

          1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            I am struggling that too. Probably Bam Bam he plays for the better team

            1. Silent Friend
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              agree. Bambo is not the problem, Leed is too good and fixtures proof

          2. Ha.
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Willy

        14. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Another foul on the edge of the box. VAR?

        15. Rains of Castamere
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Need a second attacking return from Kane ASAP so I can bank a 24-26pt captain and not have to watch any more of this trash.

        16. Niho992
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Bale IN
          Lamela OUT

          Come on MoU.

        17. Tomas_brolin
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Is cresswell worth the extra over coufal?

          Thinking Saïss to cresswell but if Antonio is a doubt it makes attacking returns less likely

          1. Troll hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Maybe, maybe not. But that .5 million may be handy.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
