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

        Two deflections following the cross

        28 days, 56 mins ago

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

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

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

        • 11 Years
        28 days, 55 mins ago

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

      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?

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

        We all know who they are

        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.

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

      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

    • Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Annoying if Lamptey only gets 5 points here

      1. Maddamotha
        • 4 Years

        Probably get 1

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        5pts is better that 1 or none.

          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

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

        1. Daniel - Go Granville

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

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

        • 4 Years
        28 days, 48 mins 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 - Go Granville
          • 11 Years
          28 days, 47 mins ago

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

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            28 days, 44 mins 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.

          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
            28 days, 43 mins ago

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

            • 4 Years

          • 11 Years

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

          not given unfortunately.

                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...

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