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.

    I'm actually really glad that after 8 years, this is the least seriously I've ever taken this game. Two of my worst ever GW scores have happened within the opening weeks of this season but I've learned to laugh it off, goodbye Ryan CS.

    In my own minileague, my one mate who generally always ghosts after GW3 is currently top which says it all. Weird season.

      A one nil win for Burnley and the final nail will be in the coffin.

      2 bonus from 17bps for Burn must be a season record?

        ha ha - surely you are right. That's probably a record for any season, but maybe someone knows better.

      Started Doherty Antonio and Rodriguez who were all injury/rotation doubts so I actually expected JWP to come off my bench but noo. Started him 3 of the last 5 weeks too

      22 with Kane and son to go. Oh dear.

      Expected to get way more than 8 blanks from, 6 scout squad players blanking, this is just unbelievable man, what kind of results are these against promoted teams and teams out of form, never seen a season like this that spoils your night every night 🙁

      Considering I got -1 from Everton yesterday, a 1 pointer from Lamptey is a haul.

        not bad

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year

        A better bench option than Bissouma.

      3. badgerboy

        Looked busy and used the ball well first half. Anonymous second half.

      Can’t even enjoy Son and Kane scoring as a non-capper thanks to their EO. Soon this nightmare of a GW is over thankfully!

      1. aborg
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 1 min ago

        This ! I just hope that Son scores the only winner as Kane is highly captained

        Same, but I’m enjoying it if they do. F*** EOs

      3. Bushwhacker

        28 days, 1 min ago

        Was going to say a nice 0-0 would be lovely but not Regulion not starting that doesn't help me one bit . . .1 pt Lamptey off the bench. Sigh.

        1. ivantys
            28 days ago

            You'll probably get a 1 point Regulion instead

            1. Bushwhacker
              • 1 Year
              27 days, 23 hours ago

              More than likely.

        2. Steinburg FC

          why? both under 100%

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            27 days, 23 hours ago

            Kane is over 100% not only in top 10k, but top 250k... Anyone serious who didn't cap him should hope he does nothing

        3. ivantys
            28 days ago

            Yeah imagine owning them and hoping they blank.

            27 days, 23 hours ago

            If you're below 500k or so, both EOs are below 100% and you need their points. Check your team EOs for managers around you on livefpl.

            • 3 Years

            Correct if you benched them

          Not even 3 saves from Ryan !!

            Sick of him. Not a save point so far this season.

            Brighton surely getting relegated. Kane double digits next week secured.

            and this gameweek started out so well with hatrick Patrick. I must have celebrated too hard.

              Bamford almost totalling my entire points so far this GW

              1. Granville
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                • 11 Years
                27 days, 23 hours ago

                Bamford got 17, I'm on 31. A blank for Spurs and a yellow will make that happen.

                1. Bushwhacker
                  • 1 Year
                  27 days, 23 hours ago

                  That's a decent score.

            None of the first 10 delivered any returns
            Sons EO make him irrelevant but all the C on Kane could make a 1 mil OR drop several million OR drop -happy days.
            I thought trying to get back from 1mil OR at Christmas last year was hard this year will be more challenging.
