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.

        Yeah perma flagged, doesn't haul until last GW, yet kept going up in price. Funny guy indeed.

        Someone is definitely taking the piss outta me

        Last week did Podence -> Pulisic

        LAST WEEK I HAD NO KEEPER

          Owners deserve this

      5. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        11 months, 16 days ago

        Imagine after 7 weeks the team of the season being:

        Martinez
        Zouma Saiss Mings
        Salah Son Grealish Zaha
        Kane Vardy Wilson

        You could actually afford that team too. It's the 3 Villa players that are pretty crazy. They've all played a game less!

        1. built_this_city
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 16 days ago

          Yep so basically you could have took an 8 point hit (for 3 villa) between gameweeks 1 and 2 and be top.
          Mental.

        2. ivantys
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 16 days ago

          I got the 3 forwards right in my GW1 team, have son and zaha too lol. Maybe don't even need to make any transfers at all.

        3. Chhana
          • 7 Years

          Only Salah from my GW1 team

        wtf wheres trossard? Potter is totally clueless, last week Maupay MIA and Ryan mysetrious benching, Then this week Trossard doesnt even make the bench.
        All Brighton assets bar lamptey out of my team for eternity

        Potter thinks that making non-stop changes makes him a good manager like Pep or something, he has no clue, will be fired soon.

      7. ivantys
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 16 days ago

        Trossard finally dropped for always wasting chances aiming crossbars and posts.

        1. Brosstan
          • 7 Years

          Trossard essential in fantasy cross bar challenge

        GTG? Bench order OK?

        McCarthy
        Zouma, Cancelo, KWP
        Salah, Sterling, Son(c), Soucek, Podence

          What do you mean by this please

          1. Brosstan
            • 7 Years
            11 months, 16 days ago

            If you don't own Kane and he hauls you can delete your team

          2. Old Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            11 months, 16 days ago

            Effective ownership. Imagine Kane is owned by 100% but only 55% captain him, or 53% own Son and all captain him.

        2. Top Lad Dakes.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 16 days ago

          top 10k or overall?

          should care more about overall, unless you're actually anywhere near top 10k rn - most that are are only there solely because they've had kane and son longest

          1. Brosstan
            • 7 Years
            11 months, 16 days ago

            Overall is too far but I agree something like top 200k or 500k makes more sense than 10k

        Can TAA survive a price drop this international break?

          Probably depends on performance against City.

            fwiw - I dropped him this week. But if he blanks again, I'd think he drops in price.

            I have got 2 free transfers now.
            If the sacking window comes into effect, new manager bounce, fixture turn against Tottenham, so

            Son to Bruno or Prospective Prime Minister
            and
            Kane to Martial
