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.

      That's why we play the game.

      I have scored 10 points this week. I own Lamptey. Just Kane and Son to play (captained Salah). I might just quit tbh.

    6. Zim0

      Kinda better not to watch live games, at least then VAR doesnt screw you over or assist/goal allocations.

    8. Hect.OR 98th

      This is why we play the game. Highs and lows.

      1. Mac90

      Lamptey - Most overrated pick this season.

      1. Seanigula
        • 11 Years
        29 days, 10 hours ago

        He was 4.5, you’ve spent more on a lot worse

        1. ivantys
            29 days, 10 hours ago

            Keeps going up in price without even hauling

            1. Seanigula
              • 11 Years
              29 days, 10 hours ago

              Because he’s cheap and starts and offers offensive potential...I’ll be quite happy if he just gets the CS

      2. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        29 days, 10 hours ago

              Casuals in my money leagues seem to be doing very well. Between 50 and 70 pointers. It's us that's doing it wrong

              People need to calm down, Lamptey as a 4th defender at 4.5m is great value............

                • 1 Year
                29 days, 10 hours ago

                He is noy 4.5 anymore and if were going by original prices there are many better than him.

                  I bought Lamptey for his assist points. 4pts at the end is still good enough for me

                4. Trophé Mourinho

                  • 1 Year

                  I was so looking forward to tonight knowing I have Lamptey, Trossard, Son and (K)ane left.
                  But yea im gonna get 9 points or something arent I

                  29 days, 10 hours ago

                  As a Lamptey owner I am disappointed. But then the disappoinment is not just from him getting a YC and not being awarded the assist. He is just 4.5. The disappoinment is more due to the fact that all of us are having a dismal GW and had hoped Lamptey will save us. He at 4.5 is still a good pick!

                    It’s just one game. Long old season. He will be great value by the end.

                      I am only disappointed that he got a YC and no assist. I am not disappointed that I picked him like most of the people here are making it out to be.

                  Folks, how has Pulisic been playing last couple of games?

                  Haven’t seen Chelsea lately, but considering him as my Barnes replacement

                    He's been awful

                    He hasn’t done much to be honest. Fixtures are the only thing looking good. Own him and don’t feel optimistic.

                    Saw one or two promising moments against United.

                    I think he'll be back to full fitness soon. Ziyech not far from a start too, maybe against Burnley...

                    I'm considering bringing him in on my WC. Not sure he will be as productive as he was last season purely because Chelsea now have more attacking options and the points will likely be spread about. Last season everything went through him or Willian - well post lockdown anyway.

                  What is expected from a 4.5-ish defender from non ‘top 6’ team? What’s going on people? 😉

                    It is not the owners that are the problem here.
