Brighton assets restricted by Andone red card in Southampton defeat

Brighton 0-2 Southampton

Goals: Moussa Djenepo (£5.4m), Nathan Redmond (£6.4m)

Assists: Danny Ings (£6.0m), Sofiane Boufal (£5.5m)

Red cards: Florin Andone (£5.0m)

Bonus Points: Jannik Vestergaard x3 (£5.0m), Redmond x2, Jan Bednarek x1 (£4.5m)

Brighton’s offensive players were arguably unfortunate not to get any attacking returns in their 2-0 defeat to Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

After starting the game brightly, the Seagulls were dealt a serious blow as Florin Andone (£5.0m) was sent off for a bad tackle on Yan Valery (£5.0m).

The Romanian forward was initially a beneficiary of ‘Graham Potter Roulette’ as the Brighton manager made two changes to his attacking front-three following last week’s draw with West Ham.

Andone replaced Glenn Murray (£6.4m) in the starting line-up while Neal Maupay (£6.0m) came in for Pascal Groß (£6.5m). The only member of the Gameweek 2 front-line to keep his place was Leandro Trossard (£6.0m).

Andone will now miss at least the next two Premier League matches for Brighton

Andone will now be missing for at least the next two Premier League matches as he was handed a three-match ban for violent conduct. This suspension also includes the EFL Cup clash with Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night.

Given the nature of the tackle, this suspension could increase in length so it is worth just keeping an eye on what happens with it.

“It’s a straight red when you watch it back. It was on the other side of the pitch from me. At ground level, you can’t see it totally but you always worry when there is a forward trying to go over the top of the ball to protect the ball but at the same time there is a defender’s leg there. We can’t defend that type of challenge. Florin didn’t mean to do it but still, it’s not a good challenge. Apologies to Southampton. Luckily they didn’t get anybody injured.” – Graham Potter

“I’m very happy that Jan Valery is not injured… it looked horrible.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Andone being missing for the next few matches could make life a little easier for those invested in the Brighton attack as it will reduce competition for places during that time.

However, Andone’s red card still harmed the Seagulls’ attacking potential against Southampton on Saturday.

After the sending off, Potter opted not to make any changes to his side, leaving them to operate in a 3-4-2 with Maupay and Trossard up-front.

This made for a mixed afternoon for the pair, with the former Brentford forward offering the most threat, while the diminutive Trossard struggled to match his Gameweek 2 presence in front of goal as he was often outnumbered by Southampton’s defence.

Trossard performed admirably considering the man disadvantage but could get any attacking returns

However, the absence of Groß for the first 78 minutes allowed Trossard to have a hand in set pieces and helped him display his creativity.

Brighton were certainly the dominant side in the 20 minutes before Andone’s sending off, without creating too many clearcut opportunities and, surprisingly, they retained control of the game even after the dismissal, Southampton happy to sit back and soak up the pressure.

“It was a little bit easier but even then I think we (could have) played much better in possession, much calmer. To find the right balance of playing forward or staying in possession is not so easy in that moment, especially if you are no points after two games and need a win. It was important that we scored twice, two very good goals.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

However, with that man disadvantage in the final third, the Seagulls struggled to ask any serious questions of the Southampton defence.

Instead, they were often at risk of the Saints’ counter-attacks, which proved to be the difference on Saturday afternoon.

Nathan Redmond (£6.4m) was at the forefront of these, using his pace to stretch the defence and having an effort in the 35th minute which fizzed past Mat Ryan‘s (£4.5m) post.

Moussa Djenepo opened the scoring for Southampton on Saturday afternoon

These well-timed forays into Brighton territory paid off for Southampton in the second half when substitute Moussa Djenepo (£5.4m) found the back of the net.

After Danny Ings (£6.0m) had set him up, the new signing curled a spectacular effort into the top corner.

“I think Moussa showed against Liverpool when he was coming in for Ryan Bertrand, that he can bring a lot of action on the left side with his right foot with his dribbling inside. It’s hard to catch. His work without the ball we have to develop but with the ball, he gives us new power. The fans will love him (Djenepo) immediately. He must learn a lot, but I like this guy – he’s very positive. After dinner, he had to sing for the team and he did it in an interesting way. His scoring is better than his singing!” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Even after going behind, Brighton maintained a strong final-third presence, which bodes well moving forward when they face favourable opposition with all 11 men on the pitch.

However, Southampton continued to look dangerous on the counter with Ings forcing a sliding block from Lewis Dunk (£4.6m) and Redmond racing through the middle and shooting just wide.

“Ings had a very good impact in the last game. I think he came on and was a very good sub last week and showed immediately that he was in the game. I think he was fit and I hope he can make a very good game today.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Nathan Redmond’s goal against Brighton was a well-deserved one

Redmond finally got a deserved goal late in the game after substitute Sofiane Boufal (£5.5m) got behind the Brighton defence and put a pass on a plate for him at the back-post.

“Yeah (Boufal is lethal). That’s the reason why, as a substitute, he is in the moment brilliant for us. Also against Burnley, he showed he can have a good impact in a game. I’m very happy for him because he worked very good this week. I was thinking of maybe bringing him in from the beginning but I think as a substitute today it was the right decision.”

Brighton had one last chance to find the net but could not convert. Substitute Jurgen Locadia (£5.4m) found himself on the end of a Murray knock-down from a Groß corner but blasted it onto the post from inside the six-yard box.

That miss led to Southampton’s first clean sheet of the campaign. As much as Brighton’s problems contributed to the shut-out, the Saints’ backline still put in an impressive shift in extenuating circumstances.

The local press were surprised to see Ralph Hasenhüttl go for a four-man defence away from home, especially against a side that plays 3-4-3. They had expected the Southampton man to match them up, but he had other plans.

“(I went for a back-four) Because you have one man more to give them pressure. This is a team that likes to play football a lot and they are very self-confident. I think also in the first half we had a few very good ball-wins. I think they didn’t play that much like against the other teams because they know about our pressing.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Southampton were without left-back Ryan Bertrand against Brighton

However, this four-man defence was still patched up in a sense, following an injury to left-back Ryan Bertrand (£5.0m).

“I think it was yesterday after the session that (Bertrand) had a little problem with his ankle.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Replacing the former Chelsea man was debutant Kevin Danso (£4.5m), who shifted out to full-back from his favoured position of centre-back in his first-ever Premier League appearance for Southampton.

“The decision was a brave one, I think. It’s not easy for him. It’s not easy to play another position that you have seldom played before with a right foot on the left. But I needed a little bit more stability on this side to play with a back four and I think he did a good job today. Won a lot of duels.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

The Eye Test

Ian Davey, Brighton fan:

“After seeing the line-up I was hopeful of being able to announce Andone as a cheap forward option, but his terrible challenge ruined that and also ended the chance for any serious FPL returns for Seagulls players on Saturday. 

“Before the red card, Maupay played wide-right in a 3-4-3 and he and Trossard looked sharp on the break.

“However it does mean Maupay is playing slightly reverse-OOP in this system, so not great from an FPL-perspective. 

“Trossard again looked the most likely to make something happen, and with Groß off the field, he took the majority of our set-pieces.

“If he had made a couple of different decisions it would have led to shooting opportunities, but on the whole, it was hard to judge Brighton’s longer-term attacking potential with 10 men. 

“Defensively it was always going to be tough with the man disadvantage but there were a couple of warning signs even before the sending off.

“Clean sheets do not look forthcoming, and I’m still not convinced of Montoya’s attacking output so would advise against Brighton defenders. Especially with a trip to the Etihad next week!”

            This plus got a feeling that he havent really reached his full potential. There was a lot of hype around this kind when first burst to the scene but his perfomances are somewhat underwhelming - not exactly Beckenbauer.

            Maybe its just me but I dont think Pep entierely trusts him.

                In my opinion Stones & Otamendi will share game time depending on opposition\current form with Fernandinho ready as a back up option for both.

                1. Devo-McDuff
                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 11 days ago

                  I reckon you’re right. If either of them shows consistent form and nails the spot though then could be a bargain, especially Otamendi as he is a good set piece threat too.

              Not sure I agree with it. Many WCs went with the GW3 template and regret it now. Currently, I agree re Cantwell, but apart from S&S, I don't see many must-haves.

              The 4.5 GK rotation is not really working out.
              After the low number of CS and poor Liverpool defensive performances in the first 3 GWs, I think it's still too early to make judgements about Pool, City or other premium defensive assets. I suspect that those who abandon all Pool defenders now will soon regret it, but many will. The long-term injury to Gbamin might impact the popularity of Digne. Three 4.0 defenders will very quickly prove to be an albatross - forward-thinking players are not going to fall for that trap.
              Up top, 3 mid-price forwards are becoming more popular, but it just takes a brace from Auba or Kun to tear that plan up.
              And in midfield, if most go with S&S and Cantwell, that still leaves many many options for 2 spots.
              So really, I don't anticipate such a homogenous template as you envisage.

              1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 11 days ago

                I didn't suggest a 4.5 GK rotation. Just a 4.5 GK

                The three defence slots I posted are TAA (7.0), Digne (6.0) and 5.5 (Zinch/Man U), with two starting 4.0s as second and third subs. There will be variations of the starting 3, but most will have a range of 5.5 to 7.0 split in three spots

                I referred to your comment on a brace from Auba or Kun tearing it up. It has already happened, tbh. Doesn't make Auba, Kun or Kane worth more than the Salah + Sterling combo, so I'd just watch as the premium forward fever kicks in now and then. The emergence of 7 to 10 mid-priced forwards with the S+S dominance mean we don't NEED premium forwards, but people will find it hard to resist

                In midfield, S + S and Cantwell leaves two spots, which I also talked about: one spot for 5.5 to 6.5 mids, one spot for anybody from Martial to KDB: Martial himself, 8.0s, Son/Pepe/KDB

                  Okay, but you've really identified only 6 players (or 5.5) as in this template. It doesn't match my definition of 'template' with that few.

                    I guess that's where our differences lie 😀

                    I describe templates and make transfers based on price points. Since I don't see any player as essential outside the S + S royalty (and maybe TAA), the rest of the squad does have options for different managers:

                    4.5 + 4.0
                    TAA/Robbo/VVD + Digne + 5.5 (Zinch, Man U, who knows?) + 4.0 + 4.0
                    S + S + KDB/Son/Pepe/Martial + 5.5 to 6.5 + Cantwell
                    3 x 6.0 to 7.5 FWDs... Pukki clearly being one

                      3 months, 11 days ago

                      Ah damn. Forgot to add that the 5.5 D could be Laporte, a clear option for managers who chose to go without the 9.5 mid slot and opt for Martial/Siggy price point instead

                      3 months, 11 days ago

                      Okay, I expect you'd have to name Pukki in any current template. To be fair, you examine the RMTs - I never look at them. I'm the nutter who has triple Everton defence so I'm as anti-template as can be 😉

                        The Pukki party is by far too obvious by now to bother typing 😀

                        But yeah, my bad for not adding him to the S + S royalty. Got him for GW2. Already my purchase of the season even if he gets a red card soon

              In my view premium defenders haven’t really lived up to their price as yet. But with Allison soon to return to pool and cities fixtures I see this improving in the near future. Mendy returning however makes Laporte the only nailed city defender. As such I think the best trio will be

              TAA Digne Laporte

                3 months, 11 days ago

                This would be nice, but takes up more funds from attack. Would mean having Martial/8.0 over KDB/Son/Pepe, but yeah. I easily see that happening when Zinch loses his spot in the team. Could also be a case of people dumping City defenders altogether with the funds pumped in attack, though. Been seeing that on RMTs recently: Zinch or naught

                    You see people going 3-5-2 with Cantwell as the 5th mid and no 3rd striker?

                    That's quite the amount of funds ITB...

                      I can see it - EMG's squad there is probably template for GW4. My real point is that templates tend to fall apart as soon as the football is played, so I'm not a fan of packing your team with last week's news.

                        We're three GWs in now, though 🙂

                        It's not like the GW2 template anymore. I do expect the Aguero hat trick and a possible

                        It's not like the GW2 template anymore. I do expect the Aguero hat trick and a possible less-than-10 score from Salah to send the template to shreds again this GW, yes. Funny thing is that it might end up only being a temporary variation, as sales won't be happening to most of this core: 2 LIV, Sterling, Cantwell, 5.5 to 6.5 mid, Pukki

                        Most likely that 9.5/Martial slot could end up as a second 5.5 to 6.0 slot and the money pumps forward to upgrade one of the mid-priced FWDs

                          I think the main chasm in philosophies once most WCs have been played will be over whether to have a premium striker (Kane/Auba/Kun) or 2-3 mid-price strikers. Once you WC and are premium-striker free, it's hard to get one in when he grabs that inevitable hat-trick.

                            The number of wildcards being played terrifies me. I made the moves with -12 (to become -16 soon) and actually flew up the ranks while thinking I was sacrificing rank

                            It's that kind of season. Not sure I see where the WC would be needed until GW19 though. But that's the fun of this game: GW4 template could be a distant memory by GW10, so I'm prepared to make moves then or use the WC with some profit off the early template

            started off the season well with a team mostly on the up but im really concerned not having kun the next two. Think he will comfortably outscore salah over the next two. Almost tempted to wc kun in over salah and switch back in 3-4 gws time when jesus is confirmed back

              Jesus is coming back in GW5 - "will be fully fit" according to City's official site. Aguero's two GWs of 90 mins without Jesus are GWs 3 and 4

            How's this WC team?

            Pope (Button)
            Robbo Digne Dunk (Lund, Kelly)
            Salah Sterling Mount (Cantwell, Douglas Luiz)
            Aguero Pukki Barnes

              Robbo to Lapo or VVD

              Kun to Auba.

              Like the Duggie pick.

              Just my thoughts otherwise gtg.

              So, a Cantwell/Lund rotation. Could work, yeah

              I'll ask you this:

              Assuming Sterling/Aguero is your City captain on most GWs when you'd cap a City player, which of these sets of players do you expect to score more:

              A. Two from (Dunk + Lund + Cantwell) + Aguero/Sterling
              B: Haller + Laporte/Zinch/5.5 + KDB/Pepe/Son/Martial, Cantwell rotating with Barnes/Mount when either faces Liverpool/City/Everton defences

            Aguero vs Jesus.

            Is Jesus catching up to Aguero? How many games will Aguero get over the next 36 gameweeks?

            Aguero is obviously still first choice but will Jesus get more games to a point where Kun becomes a non option?

            At 12m, starts are the least expected of him.

            1. ZeBestee

              35* gameweeks.

              That's what they said last season. He scored 200 points playing 60-70 minutes.
              IMO a nailed on Aguero for 90 minutes would be the top scoring player in FPL.

                If Kane is an option for many, then 1M more Kun should easily be one. Can easily see him getting 200+ points indeed.

                  KDB's 200 points for 2m less while capping Sterling, then?

              To me, the problem with Aguero is Sterling + Salah

              On the GWs when I'd want to cap a City player, Sterling screams at me. If I want to cash in on City's hauls and CS, (S)terling + KDB + Laporte/Zinch/Mendy seems capable of keeping a balanced squad while still having Salah

              Sterling + Salah + Aguero is THREE 12m+ players and will stretch out your price points in worse ways than SSK teams are already feeling, meaning you need regular hauls from Aguero to outscore the FPL teams who have Pukki + 2 other mid-price forwards and most likely Cantwell

            Considering Aguero on a WC but....

            Jesus banned from international football means he’ll have the time to recover ready for Norwich

            If Aguero is called up and gets back late it may mean he’s rested

            Thoughts?

            Alright so my first WC team got ripped to shreds by FFS haha. How about this:

            Ederson/pope
            Lowton/Walker Robbo Mings Lund Kelly
            Salah Sterling KDB Mount Cantwell
            Firmino Pukki Greenwood

            I prefer Pope and Walker but some people seem to say that walker' s position is in danger.

            C) Kane + Ceballos -> Wickham + Salah -4
