Lamptey shrugs off injury to start as Maupay and Ryan return for Brighton

Graham Potter continues to perplex Fantasy Premier League managers with yet another interesting Brighton line-up.

The good news for 11.6% of the Fantasy community is that Tariq Lamptey (£4.7m) has shrugged off the muscle injury that he sustained in the defeat to Spurs.

And anyone who kept the faith in Neal Maupay (£6.5m) or Mat Ryan (£4.5m) was rewarded as the pair slot back into their usual positions up-front and in goal.

However, it was Leandro Trossard‘s (£6.0m) to go on a mysterious disappearing exercise for Gameweek 8, the Belgian left out of the matchday squad entirely.

Also absent is Robert Sánchez (£4.5m), despite being picked ahead of Luke Steele (£4.0m) in Gameweek 7.

There is a full Brighton debut for Danny Welbeck (£5.5m) up-front while Pascal Groß (£5.8m) earns a second consecutive start in midfield.

The big news for Burnley is that Ben Mee (£4.9m) is finally back in the team, making his first appearance of the season since recovering from a long-term problem.

He displaces Kevin Long (£4.5m) to sit alongside James Tarkowski (£5.4m) at the heart of Burnley’s back-four.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (4-1-2-1-2): Ryan; Burn, Webster, Veltman, Lamptey; White; Bissouma, Lallana; Groß; Maupay, Welbeck.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; C Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; McNeil, Brownhill, Westwood, Brady; Wood, A Barnes.

    Absolutely buzzing as a Ryan and C. Taylor owner!

      great start

      Gah I benched Ryan because of doubt over his place following last week's benching!

        I’m WCing after IB and was prepared to cop a 0 pointer just for this week. Thanks for the parting gift Potter/Ryan 🙂

          Good for you pal. Hope the WC goes well

            Thank you mate, gl for the rest of the weekend

        What did you think, he'd come on for a 5 min cameo? Either he starts or he doesn't....

        1. Wild Guus Chase
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 17 days ago

          Get off my case man

  2. Free Hat

    Brighton deserve more. Sometimes little naieve in defence.
    But at least they try, compared to Burnley.

  3. BenDavies

    If my double Soton defence don't get a clean sheet now I will be devastated after benching Taylor.

  4. Ady87
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 17 days ago

    Lamptey on the pitch, Taylor 1st sub. Incoming cameo from James or Podence!

  5. Little Red Lacazette
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 17 days ago

    Enough patience with Maupay. Grrrr

  6. Seanigula
    • 12 Years

    The Brighton defensive double-up always pays off 🙂

      Brave. The Brighton defence always seems to concede.

      1. Seanigula
        • 12 Years
        11 months, 17 days ago

        Agree...it was the one week where Ryan seemed a better bet than Martinez

    2. Plant Based FPLer
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 17 days ago

      Last week vs Tottenham it was Lamptey. Last year vs. Tottenham it was Dunk (either 9 or 12 points). I had both, and I benched both.

      1. Seanigula
        • 12 Years
        11 months, 17 days ago

        Benching Lamptey vs Tottenham is reasonable...but Burnley are pretty hopeless offensively

        1. Plant Based FPLer
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 16 days ago

          I meant I benched Lamptey vs Tottenham and Dunk vs. Tottenham. I played Lamptey vs Burnley.

    not sure to be happy with 6 points for Lamptey or not, could have had so more. Not even on bps :/

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 17 days ago

      Shocking he’s nowhere near the BAPs, best player on the pitch by a mile

      1. noone
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 17 days ago

        Exactly!

  8. Wild Guus Chase
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Don't quite know what I want from the next game - Wilson to score a brace or hatty or a cleanie from McCarthy or some save points!

    1. sunzip14
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 17 days ago

      Cleanie

      1. sunzip14

          Fingers crossed!

    Hi 5 Lampinator owners 😉 Already a green arrow for us

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      11 months, 17 days ago

      Or is it Lamptinator?

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 17 days ago

        Blanktinator*

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years

        Prefer this 🙂

        1. Daniel Jebbison
          • 12 Years
          11 months, 17 days ago

          Lampteynator?

  10. keefyefc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 17 days ago

    This game had 0-0 all over it before it even started
    Time to own up who benched Bri/Burn defenders ?

    1. F_Ivanovic
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 17 days ago

      "never bench TAA or robbo" brigade.

  11. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 17 days ago

    Poor Mat Ryan sellers

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      11 months, 17 days ago

      They sold for a hit too. It will pay of I think

  12. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    11 months, 17 days ago

    I am considering Chelsea defensive double up or even triple up.

    Mendy Chilwell Zouma

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      11 months, 17 days ago

      They looks the best defense to invest in atm

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 17 days ago

      Be good until Kane bangs a hatrick past them

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        11 months, 17 days ago

        The other fixtures are excellent

  13. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 17 days ago

    8 points on the bench ... ugh

  14. boc610

    brighton players need to practice crossing. over hit or straight to the keepers hands seems to be their speciality. Maupay had a shocker.

    1. fleagle1888

      11 months, 17 days ago

      I brought Maupay in I think 3-4 weeks ago and honestly have probably not paid much attention to him/Brighton before. After paying attention to him, I have been miserable watching him as an owner - he has almost no threat other than maybe getting a Pen or just the ball somehow dropping to him in the box. Even Welbeck today is twice as threatening as Maupay

      Lamptey(C) next gw seems like a no brainer

    • THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 17 days ago

      Benched C.Taylor, Reece James in my 11 though so could get them jammy points lol

      1. Ian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        11 months, 17 days ago

        You and me both. Benched Taylor as I have Lamptey, James and Zouma.

    • circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 17 days ago

      My league leader has bench boosted with only 2 of the 4 playing but 12 points so far.

    • Goat
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 17 days ago

      Any virgin on here know if Taylor will keep his 2 bonus?

      1. KUN+10
