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.

    FPL logic, how is it a Livermore own goal? It is surely an Ivaovich goal (on target?) and a Lamptey assist no?
    Im not talking officially, but what FPL classifys

    Im wrong? Ivanovich was missing the shot?
    Look at that Jimi goal last week, that was a Jimi goal with a massive defelection because it was on target

    1. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No

      Two deflections following the cross

    3. Maddamotha
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      And what wouldve happened if a shot on goal is touched by 2 players, is it then not a goal?

    4. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      It’s just not an assist. (From an owner).

    5. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      I know what you’re saying, but that rule only applies an opposing players deliberate attempt on target, and not fellow teammates lol

    6. Seanigula
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      It went Lamptey, then Ivan, then Livermore, so I guess that eliminates the Lamptey assist

        wheres Ivanovics assist then lol?

    As a bit of a veteran on here, I have belatedly realised that the average age of a lot of newer posters is about 12. Years ago, decent posters used to hang out on an old post when matches were on. Does that still happen so we can get away from the children?

      Any time there's a game on, it gets pretty horrible on here. Used to be fun.

      I think its only a select few that ruins it. They tend to post frequently during games too.

      We all know who they are

    7. Don Kloppeone

      • 3 Years

      That sounds nice! I mostly avoid reading the posts during a match for this reason. Actually opened the tab by mistake and saw this post.

      Fully agree. The incessant childish trolling and nonsense is madness

      Perfectly understand your sentiment, it's annoying but I'm not sure it appears to everyone.

      I've been reading articles and comments here, since my first FPL season in 09/10. I didn't open an account until 3/4 seasons ago.

          Well, that shelves all plans of a -4 to get him in time for Fulham.

            Got on him last week, hoping I might be on before he fired. Now looking for a replacement just as his fixtures get good!

  7. AnfieldLad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    The way people are talking you’d have thought Lamptey had been red carded. He’s still on for a clean sheet? I don’t understand

  8. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Annoying if Lamptey only gets 5 points here

    1. Maddamotha
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Probably get 1

    2. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      5pts is better that 1 or none.

    3. Free Hat
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 3 days ago

      In this gw i gladly settle for 5 points

    4. Zim0

      How likely is a Bissouma haul at this stage?

      1. Bun Rab L3D2

        Wouldnt surprise me if he scores lol
        Its random as shots tho, you cant predict when or how, but he can score anytime. He shoots a fair bit, normally far out though

      3. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        With a lamptey assist 😉

        Lol , I'm looking for the same, anythings possible

      5. Catastrophe
        • 10 Years

        Bissouma hat-trick needed to save my gameweek. Will lose my H2H unless Kane scores -4

    7. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Prepare yourself for the tinkerman subbing Lamptey before 60"

    8. Birds of Prey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Lamptey didn't get get the asst on the own goal? C'mon, then it should be -1 to the WBA def!

      1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        clear assist, he shoots. someone at the fpl towers one fellow scout doesn't own him so that must be the reason

      2. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Agree clear assist not given

      3. Africa United
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Not assist guys do you even watch games y'all Lamptey crossed it ivanovic tried to clear it hit defender
        Lamptey>>>> ivanovic>>>>>> Livermore

    9. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      I am amazed how people here are getting all anti-Lamptey! He is just a 4.5 defender. What do you expect? A clean sheet and an assist every second match?

      1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        he should be on 11pts, assist, 3Bp and CS. We were robbed

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Haha! I seriously wish. That YC was unfair for sure, but that was not an assist. I will be happy with 5 points. Still better than what TAA gave us at 7.5.

      2. Keep Calm and Play On
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Exactly lol

      3. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        The masses expect hauls from everyone, and make rage transfers when they don’t get instant returns, which in turn makes the prices so volatile

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          True. And that has been a huge issue, especially this year. Points chasing and impatience are the biggest factors.

      4. Garlana
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Id take 5 points for a 4.5def.

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Absolutely! Still better than what I got from a 7.5 def.

      5. Birds of Prey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        4.7 for the record. At this pt I'd like subbed a la Saiss and I'll take the 5. CHEERS

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          For people who did not buy him GW1. And yes, I would want that too!

    10. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Was Lamptey assist given?

      1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        He shoots so that is clear assist for me. Opinion of an owner for the record.

      2. DAZZ

              Maupay should have scored in first half when goal was ruled out for offside. He was even looking along the line but still didn’t move himself to onside position. Poor striker.

                Yep think he’s gone to Bamford or Antonio with an FT but wouldn’t mind a nice goodbye gift

            if its over 60mins, get Lamptey off. The 5 points is a haul, I'll take it

              Attacking returns still very possible in this game, and West Brom aren't posing much threat. Think I'd rather he stays on...

                You must have more than 20 points

                  More likely he will score. But goal gettin chalked off by Var and he gets a yc for celebrating with his shirt off...
