Dugout Discussion – Brighton vs Man City

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.

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

                  The guy leading at the moment I'd imagine emigrated from Egypt to the UAE although there are a lack of players from North Africa and the Middle East. Shame he has Cahill to come on for Sobhi.

                          Quick question for people playing the sky game. The leaders are on 150-60 points but this doesn't seem possible with the players they've got. Is it just a glitch in the game or have they made transfers or used some lifeline or something?

                              same question here buddy.. i think there is some setup. how they know vardy, mounie, hegazi , salah, fermino , xaka gonna score good points. there is something wrong. FPL is now seems like fixing..

                                  Nah I don't mean like that, there's no conspiracy. The leader seems to have got double or triple the amount of points for each player. How come? He can't have captained everyone.

                                      he played salah as triple captain

                                      4 million teams. Every GW it is quite likely that some of them happens to have an XI of scorers fielded.

                                    I'm considering playing Dawson over J Rod next week away against Burnley. Sound good?

                                      Think J rod will do well against Burnley, he is a local lad to Burnley

                                      Hegazi a nailed on starter?

                                          8 days, 18 hours ago

                                          Wouldn't like to say, he has started every pre season game but with evans back it is a risk. Nyom will be dropped id imagine , Dawson moved right back but who knows? Pulsing doesn't like to change winning formulas.

                                          Some people spoke about Ake as a good defensive option. Could I ask why? Is he a goal threat?

                                            Bonus Point magnet. Pretty sure he got 1 last night even in a losing side

                                                My thoughts to, amazingly I have put him on the bench for next week.

                                              Have to get rid of Lindelof and Fabregas and I have Francis potentially not playing. Is this good; Lindy Hop + Fab to Walker-Peters + Mikhi?
