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.

    UNREAL BADLUCK for LAMPTEY OWNERS

    1. Pumpy Pro

      Not really it wouldn't have gone in if he hadn't kicked it against him. Hardly bad luck

      An incorrectly given penalty robbed him of a CS last week. Very nearly an assist then too.

      Fine margins.

      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      No Lamptey assist, Lamptey gets yellow. Double Wolves cleanie wiped to a garbage Newcastle last minute. Salah captain fail. Sterling blank. Hamez and DCL blank, DCL yellow.

      3. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Because he got booked and it wasn’t an assist

    • DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      The animosity on here to Lamptey owners is just sad and juvenile.If you're that worried about him why not just get him.

    • TomSaints
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      What’s crazy is I feel almost my entire team has had good chances to score well and just bad luck.

      Just all failed at once.

      Just one of those weeks!

    • Babelcopter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Wow I can’t believe my luck this season. Perfect Lamptey assist denied! I can’t wate Kane to score 3. This game f*cks me so bad!!!

      1. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Babe to score nothing, and wasn’t a perfect lamp assist

    • Saka_me_sideways
        1 month, 3 days ago

      • Joey Tribbiani
          1 month, 3 days ago

          unlucky...

        • Squires FC

            Yellow card magnet Lamptey

          • Klaren
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Lamptey is on -3 bps so no chance of a bonus.

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Even with his inevitable brace?

              1. Klaren
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 3 days ago

                I think he is more likely to get a red to be honest.

                (Lamptey owner)

                1. KAPTAIN KANE
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 3 days ago

                  Fine, red card after the brace it is

            Lamptey assist will be reverted by FPL towers dont worry

            1. Trophé Mourinho
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 3 days ago

              1 month, 3 days ago

              I own Lamptey. I have a score of 10 this week. It’s at the stage where I’m just laughing through the pain now.

              1. Zim0
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 3 days ago

                Well it's only a little below average

            • Garlana
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              We really do torture ourselves playing this game

              • 9 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              So Lamptey gets a YC and No Assist. The GW that keeps on giving

            • Make United Great Again
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Can’t believe I want a Kane blank as an owner and non captainer..

              But it is what it is!

                • 3 Years
                1 month, 3 days ago

                Too early for that in the season, just hope he scores points regardless
