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.

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 23 hours ago

        As always, promising but he will never deliver

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 23 hours ago

        Lively. 0 BAPs, but that's because he's trying stuff.

      3. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 22 hours ago

        Not dribbling enough for my liking - that's when he's most dangerous.

        Been a bit too safe on the ball.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 3 Years
          27 days, 22 hours ago

          Thanks guys

      It is actually almost like open net for that Maupay miss.. unbelievable

    9. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      27 days, 22 hours ago

      Lalana had the better chance
      When did he get shy in front of goal

    10. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      27 days, 22 hours ago

      Imagine if Brighton signed Watkins or Toney

      1. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 22 hours ago

        Would be essential.

        The amount of good chances Maupay wastes is disgusting.

        1. Gobigorgohome
          • 9 Years
          27 days, 22 hours ago

          yes.. it is beyound unbelievable

          27 days, 22 hours ago

          Mind you, the xG Δ says there a lot worse. Richarlison topping the list.

    11. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 22 hours ago

      A parting gift would be nice from Maupay but more likely he will highlight why he’s a goner.

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 22 hours ago

        And then he'll score next week and it'll be annoying 😛

        1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 6 Years
          27 days, 22 hours ago

          Goes without saying 😆

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            27 days, 22 hours ago

            😆

    12. Gobigorgohome

        • 7 Years
        27 days, 22 hours ago

      Today Lamptey is playing very defensive.. unusual

      1. Scholes Out Forever
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        27 days, 22 hours ago

        diangana pace is scary

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 22 hours ago

        I mean, it's a bit of this and a bit of that. He's had the ball up the pitch on a number of occasions too.

    15. JONALDINHO
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 22 hours ago

      Salah(C), Grealish both should’ve hauled and looks like Maupay will join them. Went Semedo over Saiss too. From 90 pts last week to 20 this week. Absolute s**t show

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 22 hours ago

        That’s FPL for you.
