Trossard displays goal threat in impressive Brighton debut

Brighton 1-1 West Ham

Goals: Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) | Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez (£6.0m)

Assists: Manuel Lanzini (£6.5m)

Bonus Points: Lanzini x3, Chicharito x2, Lewis Dunk (£4.5m), Pascal Groß (£6.5m)

Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) was the standout performer for Brighton as they drew 1-1 with West Ham on Saturday.

The Belgian midfielder rewarded patience shown in him by owners who disappointed by his no-show in Gameweek 1 with a debut goal.

Manager Graham Potter had opted not to throw him, or any new signings, into a starting role away at Watford, but had no issues doing so at home to West Ham.

As we saw in pre-season, Trossard was deployed on the left side of striker Glenn Murray (£6.0m) in a 3-4-3 formation, Jurgen Locadia (£5.5m) dropping to the bench and Pascal Groß (£6.5m) occupying the left-wing slot.

Accordingly, he emerged from Saturday’s match with seven points and looks highly unlikely to lose his place for the Gameweek 3 visit of Southampton to the Amex Stadium.

“He had a really good season. They were champions over there and he is a hungry guy who wants to take that next step. From the Belgian League to the Premier League is, of course, a step, but he has got that quality as you can see. Our job is to help him make that transition. Of course, it is nice for us to attract these guys.” – Graham Potter

Trossard carried the most goal threat of any Brighton player against West Ham

We had expected Trossard to mainly offer creative potential this season but, based on this performance, the former Genk man is more about the goal threat than anything else.

No Brighton player looked more dangerous going forward than Trossard, who could have scored a hat-trick in different circumstances.

He had a first-half goal ruled out for offside by the Video Assistant Referee and screwed one chance over the bar before getting his hands on some FPL attacking points.

A high ball was lofted up to Murray who did well to hold it up before being tackled. Trossard picked up the scraps and found himself the space to shoot from the edge of the box, rifling into the bottom corner of Lukasz Fabianski‘s (£5.0m) net.

It must be said that Trossard did well to continue asking questions of West Ham’s defence after the emotional rollercoaster of his disallowed first-half goal.

Centre-back Dan Burn (£4.5m) crossed the ball back across the box in the second phase of a free-kick, for Trossard to drill a volley into the back of the net.

However, it was not until after Brighton had celebrated the incredible finish that referee Anthony Taylor disallowed it for an offside call against Burn, spotted by VAR.

The introduction of this technology into the Premier League has somewhat altered the ebb and flow of matches, with it being easy for disappointment to creep in having celebrated a goal.

However, Potter credited Trossard after the game with having the determination to not let that bother him.

“It (VAR disallowing goals) changes the atmosphere in the stadium a little bit. It goes from euphoria to almost disappointment but that is something we all have to deal with. I thought the players did it really well.” – Graham Potter

“It’s disappointing especially if you score a nice goal like that but you have to keep on going because it is a football game and you know that VAR is there. If you don’t stand up and it goes to your head, it’s not easy to keep on going so that is what you need to do.” – Leandro Trossard

Despite Trossard taking some set pieces in pre-season, it looks as if Groß is the main man for these once again this season.

However, the German midfielder continues to have his minutes managed, replaced by Neal Maupay (£6.0m) in the 67th minute and with Trossard offering more goal threat for £0.5m cheaper, he certainly seems the better option.

With Groß off the pitch for some of the second half, Solly March (£5.0m) and Aaron Mooy (£5.0m) also had a hand in corners and free-kicks.

For the second match in a row, Murray led the Brighton attack with Maupay only coming on as a second-half substitute.

However, Murray is still yet to complete 90 minutes this season. After managing 63 against Watford, he was replaced by Florin Andone (£5.0m) in the 73rd minute on Saturday.

Dan Burn has become an important part of Brighton’s back-three

Brighton appear to have a new set-piece target this season in centre-back Burn.

The 27-year-old carried plenty of threat from dead-ball situations, heading over from an early Groß free-kick and also providing the assist for Trossard’s disallowed goal.

However, placing trust in Brighton defence at this early stage under Potter’s management might be hard to justify.

Yes, the Seagulls kept a clean sheet away at Watford in Gameweek 1, but it was widely reported that the Hornets were dreadful and they did not create a single big chance for Brighton to deal with.

West Ham did not offer too much going forward either but still managed to break through and find the back of the net at the Amex Stadium.

Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez and Manuel Lanzini celebrate a goal for West Ham

In the second half, all it took was a well-timed Manuel Lanzini (£6.5m) pass from midfield to unleash Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez (£6.0m), who had beaten the offside trap.

The Mexcian forward only had to slot the ball underneath Mat Ryan (£4.5m) to hand West Ham a, probably, undeserved lead in the 61st minute.

“We know that Hernandez is a box player. When he has the option he normally scores.” – Manuel Pellegrini

At Brighton, West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini made five changes to the side that was thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City in Gameweek 1.

Two of these were forced as both Felipe Anderson (£7.0m) and Sébastien Haller (£7.5m) missed out with injuries, although Pellegrini is positive about whether or not they will return for the Gameweek 3 trip to Watford.

“I hope that both of them will be back next week. Sebastien Haller and Felipe Anderson.” – Manuel Pellegrini

Chicharito came in for Haller, while Pablo Fornals (£6.5m) was handed his first West Ham start in the place of Anderson. As we suggested as a possibility in our pre-season Scout Report, the Spaniard struggled to compete with his new colleagues for creativity.

Meanwhile, Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) took Aaron Creswell‘s (£5.0m) place at left-back and performed admirably, registering five tackles, two clearances, one interception and winning the ball back for West Ham’s goal.

Elsewhere Fabian Balbuena (£4.5m), an ever-present when fit last season, was dropped to the bench to allow Angelo Ogbonna (£4.5m) to start alongside Issa Diop (£4.5m).

West Ham’s defence is still an unreliable source of investment for Fantasy managers

The final change saw Robert Snodgrass (£5.5m) come in for Michail Antonio (£7.0m) as West Ham’s attacking midfield remains rather unsettled at this early stage of the season.

“We also have a lot of new players that arrived, players that are coming back from a long injury so I think it was useful not to lose a second game in a row. Maybe the first game we need to fix all the new players in their correct position.” – Manuel Pellegrini

Jack Wilshere (£5.0m) came in for some criticism from the local press for a poor display at Brighton.

The former Arsenal midfielder reportedly left Declan Rice (£5.0m) exposed at multiple points before being replaced by Antonio at half-time, although it seems his withdrawal was somewhat influenced by his fitness.

“Jack is like Carlos Sanchez, [Andriy] Yarmolenko and Manuel Lanzini – who played a lot of games in the last part of last season – he needs time, of course. He hasn’t played 90 minutes in a long time, so in every game and every minute he has he will be improving.”

The Eye Test

Ian Davey: “I’m not quite sure how Brighton didn’t win that match.

“Trossard is a STAR in the making.

“He had a goal ruled out by VAR and missed a big chance before finally scoring.

“It turns out he’s not on set pieces but was our main goal threat.

“There’s no chance he doesn’t start next week.

“Our defence still isn’t great and there are probably better £4.5 options out there, even if Montoya is playing at right wing-back.

“Despite getting into some good positions, he lacked quality in the final third which doesn’t scream FPL returns.

“March at left wing-back is also a no-go, in my opinion, given he is a midfielder in the game.

“I’d also avoid our forwards for now. Murray didn’t do much and doesn’t look like he can play for more than 70 minutes. 

“That said, Brighton are, on the whole, much more attacking than they were under Hughton.”

    Which option?
    A) McGinn and Montoya
    B) Mount/Tossard and Kelly

    1. Mauricios Cappuccino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      28 days, 11 hours ago

      A

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Should've been McGinn + Dunk before price rise

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        28 days, 10 hours ago

        Montoya looks dangerous enough. Fair move, A.

  2. Mauricios Cappuccino
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 11 hours ago

    Perez + Wilson to Martial and Pukki for free.
    Yes right?

    1. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 11 hours ago

      Looks solid enough to me. I'm debating Wilson to Pukki myself, just not convinced.

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        28 days, 11 hours ago

        Falling for Wilson hype/Bournemouth cover ruined an earlier draft that had Sterling. -8 last week and WC this week to fix

        1. waldo666
          • 9 Years
          28 days, 11 hours ago

          I'm reasonably happy with the rest of my team, would generally give Wilson a little bit more time but I have Jimenez of last season running circles in my head, really cost me thinking he would drop off.

    2. Kub3
        28 days, 11 hours ago

        Going off form guide, yes.

      • KEEEEEZ
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 11 hours ago

        Keeping Perez for a couple personally, nice fixtures, still adjusting and another day against Chels could've had an assist or two.

        1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
          • 7 Years
          28 days, 11 hours ago

          do you think so? im just seeing perez not doing much in his first two games

    3. Alonso The Great Midfielder
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 11 hours ago

      Would you go for midprice midfielder like bernard or lanzini for a short term? im gong to ditch perez. Mount is my top consideration

      1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        28 days, 11 hours ago

        Lanzini

      2. Kub3
          28 days, 11 hours ago

          Mount

          ICT index is very high

          1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
            • 7 Years
            28 days, 11 hours ago

            yeah of course but unsure if they keep the same gameplay like the last two

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          28 days, 11 hours ago

          I would personally go for Lanzini, but Mount is worth considering too

          have just brought in Lanzini myself
          re ICT index, bit skewed early on as hammers faced City in gw1

      3. Kiwi Don
        • 7 Years
        28 days, 11 hours ago

        A)Trossard and Kane plus 1m

        B)KDB and Rash

        C) Son and Rash

        Currently on B but not 100% convinced by Rashford.

        1. Expected Toulouse
          • 2 Years
          28 days, 11 hours ago

          B due to De Bruyne. I would want him over Son or Kane.

        2. JRO093
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          28 days, 10 hours ago

          B

      4. Expected Toulouse

        Thoughts on my wc team? Wondering if I have too many premium attackers.
        Pope (4.0)
        Laporte Digne Wan Bissaka Soyuncu (Lundstram)
        Sterling Mane De Bruyne Ceballos (Cantwell)
        Kane Pukki (4.5)

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Looks solid, but I'd be slightly worried with no pool def

          1. Expected Toulouse
            • 2 Years
            28 days, 10 hours ago

            Thanks. Could go VVD over Laporte?

        2. arch1m0nd3
          • 1 Year

          Almost similar to mine :

          AWB > montoya

      5. Sndeshdhkl
        • 1 Year
        28 days, 11 hours ago

        1) jota + son
        2) martial + rashford

        28 days, 11 hours ago

        Patience has now cost me 0.2 with the drop of Fraser and Barkley. which of these moves look better for a -4 by taking out Fraser/Wilson/Barkley?

        A) Son+McGinn+Wesley
        B) Rashford+Trossard+McGinn

        Those with Rico as your bench warmer, have you used a FT to switch to Lunds?

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          28 days, 10 hours ago

          Kind of wanted to, but used up my trannies on more important business. He's not doing any harm nailed to the end right now. If I got Lund, he'd be on the bench anyway.

          1. seewhyaxe
            • 2 Years
            28 days, 10 hours ago

            yea that's what I thought as well, Andy.

            To be honest, I'd only consider switching to Lunds from Rico, if I'm on a WC or, if I have 2 FTs and am not making any changes since he'd be on my bench too.

        2. waldo666
          • 9 Years
          28 days, 10 hours ago

          Similar situation, I used 1 FT yesterday to shift Guilbert to Lundstram.

          1. seewhyaxe
            • 2 Years
            28 days, 10 hours ago

            you intending to play Lunds?

            1. waldo666
              • 9 Years
              28 days, 10 hours ago

              I doubt it tbh, was more a bench strengthening/money making exercise for me.

          2. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            28 days, 10 hours ago

            As one of the 98% who either didn't have him or left him on the bench, at the risk of making an ar5e of myself again, I'll speculate that he's peaked. bloody brilliant if you got his haul this week, but that's it, he won't do it again.

            1. waldo666
              • 9 Years
              28 days, 10 hours ago

              Wouldn't surprise me one bit but he will definitely score better than Guilbert for the foreseeable.

              1. Andy_Social
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                28 days, 10 hours ago

                As in he'll play, sure. you know it wouldn't surprise me if Smith trolls everyone and waits for the last person to get rid of Guilbert before starting him and nailing him to his Starting XI. Seriously.

                1. Kiwivillan
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  28 days, 10 hours ago

                  Every Villa forum, FB group, YouTube comments are whinging about no Targett and Guilbert even though Taylor and Elmo have had 2 solid games. Classic players not playing obviously better and costing us results

                2. waldo666
                  • 9 Years
                  28 days, 10 hours ago

                  Time will tell but the fact he hasn't even been in the squad tells me he's probably not. But yeah we're talking about the bench, I hadn't intended to use Guilbert but just thought I need better backup on the bench. Ironic, I know.

                    28 days, 10 hours ago

                    I hate myself for going with Guilbert at the start of the season 😕

                      28 days, 10 hours ago

                      I bought back Doherty after he dropped to 4.4m last season. Wonder if Guilbert gets picked and kills it at 4.4m 😆

                          What a signing he was.

                        Hate is a strong word, don't beat yaself up about it 😉 . I get ya though, hurts more that it was pretty much a deadline thing for me cos I had 0.5 ITB. Should have just left well enough alone!

                            Thank you for kind words 🙂
                            Sold him for good this gw to generate ££ to get Pukki/Martial.
                            Got Lundstram in

              Took a 4-point hit, but I think I can make it back next GW. Pukki, Martial and Soyabean in.
              Very happy with 10 of my Starting XI, but bit stuck with Jota. Even with a free tranny next week, there's really no one to change him to so will have to wait a fortnight.

                Good luck! I have thought about switching King / Wood to Jota for gw3 but I'm probably going with
                Wood -> Pukki instead. (fomo me)

                  Thing is, Wolves are gonna play the mighty Torino on Thursday night. Don't think they'll be at their best next GW.

                  Already done -
                  Wilson - Pukki

                  Planing to do -
                  Fraser - KDB

                  Then for -4 in order to afford KDB -

                  A. VVD - AWB/Mina
                  Or
                  B. Perez - Mount/Trossard

                  Im thinking Perez to Mount. Any opinions much appreciated. Thanks

                      Done exactly the same mate.

                      Went Wilson for Pukki on Sunday. Them Fraser to KDB and Perez to Mount today.

                      Yeah, don't lose Virg. Worth the hit to get Kev, and losing Perez is pain-free. Either would be okay, but if you're all over Mount, go for him.

                    Folks, did I do a good thing?

                    Perez, Auba, Kyle WP => Sterling, Deeney, Kelly.
                    No point hit (using the free hit)

                    Current squad is:

                    Pickford/Pope
                    Zouma/Montoya/Digne/Lundstram/Kelly
                    KDB/Sterling/Martial/Trossard/Dendoncker
                    Kane/Firmino/Deeney

                    Premium midfield seems the way forward...I just need a bit more balance between my 3rd Fwd and Backline. Also really like Cantley if no Pukki cover longer term. Thoughts?

                        Yeah, Deeney is short term; ideally would’ve had King in. Will keep him for a week or two then ship him out, but thought maybe he was worth a quick punt. Zouma/KWP bit of a toss up; neither of them would be in my side for long. The 4.5 defenders look pretty good to me.

                        Thanks for the feedback!

                      I didn't read Free Hit. Team reverts back after this week if you used Free Hit. Lose all value on old players that drop and players that rise cost more

                            Looks good. If anything, I’d say you could descale on you backs and upgrade your mid. I just shipped out Perez myself. Might revisit him later this year.

                                      I wouldn't take any more hits. It's generally a very fine team until you get to the top.
                                      You've got Pukki in, but Vardy and Jota have been sluggish. I'd give Vardy GW3 to prove himself. I'm in the same boat with Jota - used up a hit already and no one to do a straight swap for. Maybe your next 2FT might shift both of them on with a premium striker and Greenwood, causing you to play one of Dendo or Lundy every week.

                                          Got off to a pathetic start. 109 from 2 gw's.
                                          Wanted to use WC but kinda tempted to give Vardy 2 more gw's. Might be better as I've hold on for two consecutive blanks.

                                          My whole strikers gave 12 points in two gw's. Pathetic to say the least.
                                          Kdb is tempting atm. Waiting to see how things shape up. On 2.3m OR now 😀

                                            Yeah, my combo of Jimi and Jota has fallen flat on its ar5e. Like you, I've now gotten Pukki (for Jimi) and still stuck with Jota. Vardy has 2 tempting fixtures before 2 nasty ones, so you're right to give him 2 more weeks, I think.

                                          I agree with Andy. It’s fine to hold for a GW or two.

                                          There’s an intl break in GW5 so you could WC then if needed

                                            Just a bit too much tied up in the Liverpool back line for me; seem like a lot of good 4.5 - 5.5 options out there. Premium mid looks good though.

                                            1) Barnes (could be swipe to Pukki when fixtures swing)
                                            2) Pukki (fixtures scares me)

                                                I ditched Salah for Kdb, delafail for Kane and Wilson for Pukki this week.
                                                Form over fixtures every time....(although Kane swap is more fixture based)
                                                -8 I know, but that’s how I roll

                                                  Barnes and Pukki only has 1 difference goal, almost same form for me.

                                                Why did they disable showing flags in squad? This doesn't make any sense.

                                                  Chewbacca is a Wookiee from the planet Kashyyyk. But Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about it; that does not make sense!

                                                    Outer space immigration, makes perfect sense.

                                                      Why would a Wookiee, an 8-foot tall Wookiee, want to live on Endor, with a bunch of 2-foot tall Ewoks?

                                                      Thanks TM.
                                                      Thought I was going to squeak through with 49.
                                                      Turns out I was a solid 1.25pts above the average!
                                                      Give that guy a plastic medal.

                                                        How did Martial look today? Worth bringing in for Siggy for a hit? Or just be patient with Siggy

                                                          Runs on but does not hold up.
                                                          If Rashford was same price and classed as a mid I would go for Rashford.
                                                          Having said that a centre forward for Manu at 7.5 classed as a mid you have to get him.

                                                            Yeah I'm feeling like the opportunity to have a top 6 striker classed as a mid is too good. You an Everton fan? How has Siggy been looking?

                                                              Siggy is Siggy but a few mistakes crept into his game.

                                                          Involved, central, could have had 1 or 2 more in different circumstances. Still looks disinterested at times tbf, sort of player that does drop his head a bit if things aren't going his way.

                                                          Siggy has looked good but unfortunately for him everton as a team going forward have looked poor - shame they didnt buy a decent striker.

                                                          Martial is no Aguero but is playing oop as a no.9 for a top 6 side for less money.

                                                          I did siggy to martial last night.

                                                        Siggy > Martial for free?
                                                        Or keep patience on Siggy?
