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.

    Happy to keep that 1 point, well done Lamptey! It is a solid contribution to my GW score of 21, not that negligible, seriously.

    Next in FPL today:
    - Son withdrawal at the HT (injury)
    - (K)ane penalty miss and YC
    in a 1-0 Burnley win

          Great result for non Brighton owners

        • FC Hakkebøf
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          What to do here you guys? 2 FT 0.4 ITB

          Martinez
          TAA Chilwell Saiss
          Salah Son Pulisic Grealish
          Kane DCL Maupay
          _____
          Forster Lamptey Stephens 3.9

          A) Maupay (TOT) -> Watkins/Bamford/Mitrovic (one week punt before getting Antonio)
          B) Maupay + Grealish -> Bamford + Hamez (if Hamez is deemedfit)
          C) Stephens to Bissouma / Soucek (thought Stephens was a nailed on cheap alternative to Bissouma / Soucek)
          D) Something else

          Leaning towards A with Bamford or Mitro. Bamford could be a long term pick, but Mitrovic has the better fixture

          1. Front 442

            Interesting!
            Very similar to my starting XI but I guess you had a bigger TV when wild carding.
            Im in the same dilemma .
            I have Robbo instead of TAA and Watkins instead of Maupay.
            Dallas instead of Lamptey.

            With A at least you're getting some change an its hardly a punt getting Bamford, it's actually a good move. Antonio's fitness is a slight doubt after listening to Moyes so I think Antonio isn't a given in GW 8 just yet if the Bamford and DCL return again.

            1. FC Hakkebøf
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Yeah prolly doing Maupay to Bamford. Should have done it before the pricechanges I guess, as I have another spare FT in case injuries occure during midweek

          2. Front 442
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Or Lamptey for Balbuena, Coufall or Cresswell?

            1. FC Hakkebøf
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              That sounds like a GW 8 move

        • Trophé Mourinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Lamptey's still not the finished article yet, needs to work on his delivery. Pass the ball on the floor more, hold up play, cut inside and shoot. 2/3 years off that
          We have unrelastic expectations for now, plus players like Maupay are whack

            • 3 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Unlucky not it get an assist. Unlucky to be subbed pre 60 mins a few GWs back.

            Plenty of promise, luck just coming at the wrong time.

            1. Trophé Mourinho
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 5 days ago

              well Potter is bad, its logical tbh you would sub Lamptey at that point, not Trossard.
              Odd sub imo

              1. Hazz

                1 month, 5 days ago

                Wasn't he subbed because of an injury concern?

        • Super Saints
          • 4 Years

          I will be destroyed in my mini leagues if Kane scores

              When, not if (as I don't have him)

            • 2 Years

            Should i keep Maupay for Spurs or switch to Antonio now? Was plan to switch in GW8 but still think Antonio has more chance of scoring against Liverpool than Maupay against Spurs

            Are they serious!?! Matt Ryan is man of the Match !! What the F***....he did not even get me 3 saves

              I didn't even see him on the pitch first half. Then fell asleep . . and it's the middle of my day in CA.

            Knowing this game, next GW Lamptey will get a CS, assist and 3bps vs. Spurs while on everyone's bench

            Saiss is my only player so far that produced some kind of return, and JUST because he was subbed before they conceded a goal !

            Would Davies go to CB and Reg come on if Toby or Dier had to go off? Seriously clutching at straws here!
