Pressure on Lamptey and Brighton assets after tough start to Gameweek 6

Fantasy Premier League managers in possession of Brighton assets will be turning to the Amex Stadium this evening in desperate need.

With Gameweek 6 proving particularly cruel for the majority of players worldwide, the Seagulls have the potential to ease the pain of a select few.

Tariq Lamptey (£4.7m) is Brighton’s most popular outfield player, currently sat in 11.4% of teams. Can he reward those managers for their patience?

The right wing-back is without a Fantasy return since Gameweek 3 and is still yet to record a clean sheet of his own this season, although West Bromwich Albion arrive in Sussex having registered the lowest number of big chances across the first five Gameweeks.

Once again, Lamptey is deployed on the flanks of a midfield quartet protecting a back-three. Solly March (£5.0m) is stationed on the other side of that while Yves Bissouma (£4.5m) and Ben White (£4.5m) sit in a deep central pairing.

Supported by Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) and Adam Lallana (£6.3m), Neal Maupay (£6.6m) leads the line once again, hoping to continue his impressive start to the season.

There are clearly still trust issues between the Frenchman and FPL managers, as he is owned only by 6.9% for Gameweek 6, but he is the best Brighton player for points per million spent this season (5.2).

Patrick Bamford (£5.9m), Callum Wilson (£6.5m), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) and Harry Kane (£10.9m) are the only FPL forwards to better Maupay for that figure so far this season and, as we all know, West Brom are not without their defensive issues in 2020/21.

The Baggies’ Fantasy assets remain among the ultra-differential with non-playing goalkeeper David Button (£4.0m) the most-fashionable at 4.7% ownership.

Of regular starters, Matheus Pereira (£6.0m) is the most popular, currently sat in just 2.8% of teams.

There will be eyes on Branislav Ivanovic (£4.5m) tonight though. The former Chelsea defender’s debut coincided with West Brom’s first clean sheet of the campaign at Burnley, while he finished the trip to Turf Moor as his team’s chief threat in the penalty box.

Each team has some attacking presence on their benches, which feature Danny Welbeck (£5.5m) and Callum Robinson (£5.5m) respectively.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI: Ryan; Burn, Webster, Veltman; March, Bissouma, White, Lamptey; Trossard, Lallana; Maupay.

West Bromwich Albion XI: Johnstone; Townsend, Ajayi, Ivanovic, Furlong; Livermore; Diangana, Krovinovic, Gallagher, M Pereira; Grant.

    Lamptey? I'm mentally preparing myself for a YC and subbed off at half time...

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      For sure with Maupay missing a penalty

    2. mookie
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      I think he might play RM in a 4-4-2

    Lamptey Cleanie will gone around 60th mind as always or 90th min like Crystal Palace i am ready for it.

    Twitter admins of football clubs need to come to an agreement and post team line ups starting with the keeper and ending with the striker. Thought Maupay was benched for a second there.

  4. G00LI0

    Maupay hattie incoming

  5. Iceball

    Need Lamptey to get more points than Kane

  6. AzzaroMax99
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Digne to who?
    I have Chilwell, Lamptey, Saiss, Mitchel.

    1. dbeck

      1. AzzaroMax99
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Guaita.
        What about Castagne or should I go for cheaper DF like Konsa or Coufal?

        1. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          yep i'd go for one of those, or even zouma for the chels double up

          1. AzzaroMax99
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            CHE double also crossed my mind but with Mendy instead of Guaita. Thx, will go probably with Castagne, he has great attacking prospects for next few games.

  7. Joey Tribbiani

      Pressure? haha Lamptey feels no pressure

      1. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Why the hell would Lamptey feel any pressure for fpl gw6 😆 . I am sure he gives a flying f.....

        1. Joey Tribbiani
            3 months, 3 days ago

            Just joking 😀

        Johnstone pen save, surely its tonight

      4. ZAWAd25
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Feel like my defense is weak but don’t see an obvious choice defender for next week. Should I just save a FT? 0.5 itb

        McCarthy
        TAA Saiss Justin Mitchell
        Salah Son Sterling
        Kane DCL Watkins

        (Taylor Bissouma Reed)

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Save and then do Taylor > Coufal.

          1. ZAWAd25
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            Good shout. Will be getting Antonio. Will you still double up on West Ham?

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 3 days ago

              I don't count that as doubling up. Defense and attack are separate.

              If you got Soucek or Bowen as well that would be doubling up.

      5. Forza Papac
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Kane EO is 82% in my rank tier. That means I get a green arrow for owning but not captaining if he gets points yeah?

        1. SHOOTER MCGINN
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Theoretically yes

        2. Super Saints
          • 4 Years

            3 months, 3 days ago

            all the players with similar rank to him, broken into groups like rank 100k-200k on some site he’s using

      6. Sco

        Trossard is due a goal...

        1. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          My whole team is due a goal - doesn’t mean it’ll happen

          1. AzzaroMax99
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            This.

            Probably on the bench for Greece.

        3. teneighty

          Is that advice or word of caution?

      15. KAPTAIN KANE

        Thinking to next week, would you start Brewster (Home MCI) or Soucek (Away LIV)?

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Soucek

          1. Stormbringer22
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 3 days ago

            West Ham will win that game, unfortunately (Liverpool fan here)

            1. Corgzzzz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 3 days ago

              Damn right we will.....0-3 Antonio hatty.....TAA red card

              1. Stormbringer22
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 3 days ago

                If Antonio is confirmed fit, I am bringing him in ahead of the Pool game. Can easily see him getting a couple

                1. Hy liverpool
                  • 7 Years
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  Bowen and fornals are going to score too.. Easy 5-0

                  1. Stormbringer22
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 1 Year
                    3 months, 3 days ago

                    Wouldn't go that far but Bowen would be a pain. There will be goals in this game on both ends

      16. DA Minnion
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Whole world waiting on Lamptey to do something amazing.Me included.

      17. teneighty
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Didn't realise Ivanovic is 36!

        1. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Yeah amazing ... I thought he would be at least 38...

      18. LOLarov
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Ok taken Salah, Mane, Kane, Son out of the equation.

        WHO ARE THE BEST 3 PLAYERS FROM GW 7 - 10?

        GO.....

        1. SHOOTER MCGINN
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          A Chelsea attacker or Antonio would be my guess

      19. NoSalah'd
          3 months, 3 days ago

          What's your views on Masuaku and Coufal? I haven't had a chance to watch West Ham play, but are they being deployed as wing backs?

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            Yes and both are very good options.

            Masuaku slightly more goal threat. Coufal with more assist potential.

            1. NoSalah'd
                3 months, 3 days ago

                Cheers. I may bring one of them in for Saiss in a few weeks.

            2. Corgzzzz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 3 days ago

              Masuaku playing the best I have seen him, however he is a worry with a red card......Coufal has been different gravy but I think its to early to make that move. I would wait till after the LFC game to see how they get on.

              1. NoSalah'd
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  Thanks. I am wondering whether WHU may move to a back 4 with cresswell LB when Benrahama is fit.

            3. SHOOTER MCGINN
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 3 days ago

              With a transfer needing to be used, which option:

              A) Rodriguez -> Pulisic
              B) Saiss -> Cancelo (if Saiss looks like being dropped, Cancelo just a punt I'd be willing to take)
              C) Maupay -> Antonio

              1. NoSalah'd
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  C depending on injury news on Antonio

                • 3 Years
                3 months, 3 days ago

                Podence & Jimenez -> Rodriguez & Antonio for free?

                1. Stormbringer22
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  Yes

                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  I don't see the value in buying Rodriguez unless you've got a good rank already

                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  Next week, not this.

              3. Stormbringer22
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 3 days ago

                Attack wise, which one do your prefer from now on? Antonio presumed fit:

                A. 3-5-2
                Salah - Son - Puli - James - Grealish
                Kane - DCL

                B. 3-4-3
                Salah - Son - Puli - James
                Kane - DCL - Antonio

                1. Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  Why didn't you just do Antonio vs Grealish?

                  I prefer Grealish to James. I don't trust James to stay fit. His average position is also literally at the half way line.

                  1. Stormbringer22
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 1 Year
                    3 months, 3 days ago

                    Brewster to Antonio this week, followed by James to Jack potentially.

                    And yes, you are right, I should have phrased it as Antonio v Grealish

                2. NoSalah'd
                    3 months, 3 days ago

                    B, but it depends how the extra mil is being spent

                  Chances on my 2.8% Pereira Pick outscoring Son and Kane this week...? Squeeky bum time

                    He may score, but I still think Son + Kane score more

                  Do we see Mitchell getting benched soon or to flexible to be dropped?
