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.

    Can I bring myself to watch this muck just to see Ryan and Lamptey CS taken way anyway.
    Both teams can’t even make a simple pass so far. Dire.

  9. Super Saints

    What is the best upgrade to this team? Got a bit of MITB.

    Martinez Steer
    Robbo Justin Lamptey KWP Mitchell
    Salah Son Grealish Zaha Stephens

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        0.5, thinking Justin to Saiss but also tempted on Robbo to Kilman and upgrade elsewhere

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years

          Naa wolves fixtures turn bad after palace. Do lamptey or kwp to Creswell

    Come on Pereira. Chelsea can’t be the only team you can get points against surely

    1. Huddersfield
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      He earned 10 points vs Everton

  12. PocketZola

  13. Mackans
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    Zaha or Rodriguez??

    1. PocketZola
      • 3 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Pulisick

  14. The Mighty Hippo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    I've got 2FT and 0.1M in the bank. Any suggestions? I don't like the idea of losing a transfer, but equally don't want to make a move just for the sake of it.

    Martinez | Steer
    Chilwell | Reguilon | Semedo | Dallas | Mitchell
    Salah | Son | Pulisic | Rodriguez | Grealish
    Kane | DCL | Brewster

    1. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      No idea. U have a solid team. Maybe Mitchell to Kilman

      1. The Mighty Hippo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        Yeah, that's an option for sure. Assuming Kilman keeps his place.

    2. Huddersfield
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Mané or Zaha in

      1. The Mighty Hippo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        I assume you'd bring Mane in for Salah? Who would you ship for Zaha, Grealish or Rodriguez?

  15. Corgzzzz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Oh my days WBA clear on goal and over the bar

  16. baps hunter

    Assist looks like the only way Lamptey might get pts 🙁

    1. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No way BHA going to keep a clean sheet......

    I don't trust these Brighton CBs...

    Look like they're missing Dunk.

  20. Hect.OR 98th

    Need some Maupay goals assisted by Lamptey. Anything to get me out of the quagmire that is my 2020-21 FPL season.

    1. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      This just happened ..........off side

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        Wasn't Lamptey tho

    2. Hadebayor Mum
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      4.3 million overall with Lamptey and Son left. Got to turn around at some point hopefully!

  21. Gobigorgohome
    • 9 Years

    2. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Think he is going to go big tonight. 15+ pts.

    3. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Let's not get our hopes up too high - it could be a tough night. I think I'd settle for a single goal or even assist.

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        I think he means for Brighton

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          28 days, 7 hours ago

          Ah - yes. Me stupid and no comprendo. Probably a better chance of a big score v Seagulls.

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            28 days, 7 hours ago

            Haha nah its because i know kanes not his captain.

    4. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      I think Son is maybe a better cap pick then Kane, Son to benefit from Brightons high line more?

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        Don't have him, will be behind sofa.

        I trust Kane more though.

    5. Flair

  25. Gobigorgohome
    • 9 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    Lamptey closer to YC

    1. Chucky
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Red would be better

  26. Gobigorgohome
    • 9 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    WBA goal more likely by the look of it

  27. Giggs Boson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    White is not a midfielder. Should have played Alzate and put White in the backline.

  28. Gobigorgohome
    • 9 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    this is Sunday league level 🙁

    1. ThisTimeNxtYrRodney

  29. TomSaints
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    I’m not asking for much.

    Brighton clean sheet and Maupay to get a return.

    Get me to 20 points.

  30. Zim0
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    Oof Maupay should have scored that
