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.

    Reguilon dropped

    1. F_Ivanovic
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Rotated. Makes sense - mostly playing 2nd string for europa so wants some strong attacking threat for it and can rest him for the easier PL games.

    Really need Son to have a belter tonight to save my game week. He’s my captain so usually that means fail

      Why do 5 points look so much less appealing than 6

      1. ivantys
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Cos it's 3 points less than Ryan, Webster and 4 points less than Burn

      2. The Littlest Robbo

        Come on Potter, it's best that you take Lamptey off now

          Rotation when spurs have at least 2 games every week. Not a shocker.

          Reguilon will start most weeks, Doherty I wouldnt go there

      11. Collie01
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        I own Kane and Son but didn't captain either. Due to their high ownership, do I want them to score or blank?

        1. diesel001
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Kane blank. Son points.

          You always want points

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

        Lamptey owners should be mindful of those Livermore owners and be grateful.

        Trossard is useless. Signed him in FanTeam and he's been a real disappointment.

          Yes he’s been a real disappointment the last 3 GWS. All those woodwork shots...

            • 3 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            Not this Season. Had Dier since GW1 and haven't had a chance to get rid. Perfect time for a 12pter.

        Dropped Reece James for Reguilon this week. Another week when I should have just not logged in.

      16. ivantys
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Lamptey on lower BPS than a WBA defender despite having a CS lol

          1. Albrightondknight

            • 5 Years

            Yellow will do that.

            1. ivantys
                3 months, 3 days ago

                Must be doing a lot worse to be on 13 with CS lol

            2. Lazaretti

              3 months, 3 days ago

              And his cross lead to that only goal. He was -5 bps after first half or after 40min play.

              EX says we should know tomorrow about Antonio, but if you have him already he's an obvious keep... Haller more than ready to step up.

                3 months, 3 days ago

                Play Doherty for 90 minutes on Thursday to convince me to bench him then start him on Monday. Well played Mourinho.

                  He's so selfish not taking you into consideration.

                  Aurier not on bench could mean injury, who knows.
