Potter tinkers again as Murray and Duffy benched for Brighton

Brighton manager Graham Potter continues to prove himself as unpredictable as far as tactics and team selections are concerned.

Once again, he has rolled out a completely different system to last time out as the Seagulls prepare for an away match at Newcastle.

Potter has lined up his troops in a 4-3-1-2 system lead by Neal Maupay (£6.0m) and budget midfielder Steven Alzate (£4.5m).

Unafraid of keeping his senior players on their toes, the manager has also put Glenn Murray (£5.8m) and Shane Duffy (£5.0m) on the bench.

That makes for a centre-back partnership of Lewis Dunk (£4.6m) and Adam Webster (£4.4m), while Dan Burn (£4.5m) retains his left-back berth of a week ago after playing in the middle for the first four matches of the season.

Meanwhile, Martín Montoya (£4.5m) has recovered from tonsilitis and reclaims his place at right-back and Aaron Mooy (£4.9m) gets his first start in midfield.

By contrast, Newcastle go with their tried and tested 5-3-2 formation, led by Joelinton (£5.9m) and Miguel Almirón (£5.9m).

However, there is unlikely to massive FPL interest in this Saturday evening game as the most popular player on show will be on the Brighton bench.

David Button (£4.0m) remains in 25% of teams and is also the most fashionable shot-stopper among managers inside the top 10,000 as well.

Dunk is the most popular playing asset, currently in 11% of teams, while no Newcastle player is owned by more than Isaac Hayden‘s (£4.5m) 6.5%.

Newcastle XI: Dúbravka; Willems, Dummett, Lascelles, Schär, Manquillo; Atsu, Shelvey, Hayden; Almirón, Joelinton.

Brighton XI: Ryan; Burn, Webster, Dunk, Montoya; Mooy, Stephens, Pröpper; Groß; Alzate, Maupay.

        Not a season-keeper.

  1. Would Ed Woodward

    10 months, 19 days ago

    I should probably get KdB at some point.

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      I’m literally a 1 man team this season (KDB) - as in he is the only person who ever scores me any points

    Ragabolly/LiveFPL.net down for all?

    1. Ragabolly

      Give it 5 minutes so traffic will decrease

    2. diesel001

      10 months, 19 days ago

      Down for me. Too much traffic as everyone checks those KDB points

  3. Azathoth

    Please football gods,Mount not to play tomorrow to get Lundstram's 12.....PLEASE!!!!!

    1. Teomi
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 19 days ago

      This

    2. KGFC
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      With you!!! I think Lampard should "protect" him for the easy run in... No point taking a risk... Play Barkley

  4. Dacra

    10 months, 19 days ago

    Need a Greenwood no show for Lundstram to replace sterling..

  5. LeicesterA
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    I went through that game thinking KDB was my VC for Sterling. Such joy.

    Quite the horror when I logged in to check my points with content and realise it’s on Pukki.

    I suck. Meh.

    1. MTPockets
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      hero to zero

    2. The Pesci challenge

      Yep me to, I feel your pain

  6. TheDragon
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Lund 3rd on my bench absolutely raging

    I’ve benched both his double digit hauls and Robinson’s 15 pointer - I’d be top 100k easy (c40 points swing) -
    But no ... here I am at 1m OR despite having KDB captain

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 19 days ago

      He's third on my bench too but I'm probably getting his point, jammy I know. At least you got captain right.

  7. Tamagotchi Massacre
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Lundstram coming third off my bench for 45 with Auber (C), VvD, Robbo and Mount to play

    I feel like that's pretty fair considering no Aguero

  8. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Is it unreasonable to begrudge sterling (c) kdb (vc)?

    Feel like actual kdb captainers took something of a risk and got much reduced reward.

    Complain complain

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Sort of

      Sterling captainers did know that historically if he doesn’t start he gets 0 minutes - also if he had started who knows how many he would have got

      So I think it actually feels more unfair than it really is

      1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        As long as they knew that first I'm fine with that :).

        Feeling extra salty because I don't have sub coming on (mount/greenwood) for my sterling (not captain) and everyone else has lundy or Rico coming in

    2. F4L
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      more risk in captaining the player more likely to be rotated

      1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Hah, you won't convince me they deserve those points :p

  9. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Greenwood off the bench for Sterling!! Let's hope he starts following Solskjaer's recent comments!

  10. Rinseboy
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Chances of Mount not playing and getting Lunds points?

    1. _Ninja_
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Think he'll play some part

  11. De Gea is GOAT
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Lundstram providing the goods once again!

  12. Peter Ouch
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Will son rise tonight?

    1. Hits from the Bong
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 19 days ago

      More likely in the morning

    2. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Did you captain KDB?

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Of course

        1. ZeBestee
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 19 days ago

          Nice.

  13. Sgt Frank Drebin
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    I wonder what was Agueros xG today! Must be one of the biggest underachievers in a quite some time!

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      He’s cancelling out Tammys positive variance, thus keeping the metric pure at the bottom line level thus indisputable evidence of XG’s accuracy

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Why is it always the wrong way around... (Aguero owner and Tammy non owner)

  14. Kno
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Lundstrom and pieters off the bench for zinck and raz. Could deff be worse.

  15. tafrère
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Lundstram and KDB saving my Gameweek.

    Now a brace from Auba (C) and it could be a good one after all.

    1. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Samesies

    2. GanonTEK
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Same. Salah (c) for me though

    3. KGFC
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Nopes, I'm looking for a Hattie!!

  16. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    So Aguero (C) and De Bruyne is 35 points but KDB C is 34. Dodged a bullet there.

  17. The Tinkerman
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    VC change from KBD to Pukki probably one of my costlier mistakes this season...

    Figured if him and Sterling he was more of a rotation risk 🙁

    1. The Tinkerman
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Of*

    2. Tomerick
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      My condolences.

  18. Bob_the_builder
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Best GW this year so far in terms of points. Will finally break out of the 4 million bracket. But left thinking what could have been had Kun taken even half of his chances.

  19. gers23
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Matip nailed? Looking at him to replace Digne

  20. Dacra
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    43, green arrow, with TAA, Matip, Salah (c) Haller + Greenwood or Lundstram to go.

    Was worried not having Aguero at the start of that, relieved now.

  21. Super Silva Haze
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Chances of kelly starting tomorrow ???

    1. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      I hope he doesnt. Slim chance given Tomkins, Sakho and Cahill all fit.

  22. Wirbelwind
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Barnes to Abraham before price rise? Got plenty ITB

    Been thinking of upgrading Greenwood to a ~6 but going to be difficult.

  23. GuillermoDickero
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Who is the best option out of Aurore and Ota?

    Did ota go off because of an injury or to be rested?

    1. GuillermoDickero
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      *aurier

    2. We Will Klopp you
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Rested and to give Garvia some minutes given that the game was done and dusted. I'd got otamendi, goal threat and better defence

  24. Andy'81
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Get your relegation six pointers out, Mon NUFC and Andy Carroll.

  25. Mr. Grv
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Chances kelly doesnt start tommorow ?

    1. Rainer
      • 3 Years

      Might sub on to sure them up.

    This aged poorly, KDB (VC) Lundy off the bench, and i was able to laugh at aurier. Lovely afternoon

  27. Rainer
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Not feeling sorry from them but Kun captainers were very unlucky there.

    Seems half the site have Sterling C, KDB VC and Lundstram 1st sub.

    Some swings can be very cruel.

    1. MTPockets
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah that's the aspect that stings most

    2. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      And will lead to me banging the drum concerning half points for auto-subs and VC again 😉

      1. Rainer
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        😛

    3. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Cry me a river

      They deserve it for all the gloating 20mins in

      It’s just variance - it’ll all even out over the season (from someone
      Who is a : KDB captainer, sterling owner and Lund 3rd on the bench so not get his points)

  28. Inazuma X1
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Absolutely hate FPL omg lmao

    Benched Pukki and Cantwell last GW

    Benched Lundstram and Rico this GW

    1. Alsanibra
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Me too, though kwp and sterling no shows have cheered me up no end!

    2. Cpt Crunch Scott talent
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      I benched Lundy and Lowton.
      Mina own goal and Walker pulled early.

      Suck on that
