Saturday’s events end on the south coast as Brighton make their Premier League debut and bid to follow the example set by Huddersfield Town following their victory at Palace.
But the Seagulls face a daunting task, with Premier League favourites Manchester City the visitors to the Amex Stadium.
Pep Guardiola’s men are bristling with prime Fantasy talent with Kevin De Bruyne owned by 31.6% of FPL managers in midfield, while both Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero – owned by 13.4 and 11.4% respectively – start up front for City.
That trio are the first big captain assets in action today, with Aguero backed by 5.9% of managers with the armband, while De Bruyne is the skipper for 4.7% of managers and Jesus 4.3%.
In contrast, Brighton are something of a non-event from a Fantasy perspective. Their most popular assets – Uwe Hünemeier and Liam Rosenior are both owned as 4.0 enablers, while Anthony Knockeart – present in 2.3% of squads – joins them on the bench following a recent injury.
