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.

    Three players today, four tomorrow (and a fifth benched), and thinking Dunne to Kilman for all the marbles as an early transfer, depending on how pricing changes.

    Lamptey almost assist

  3. ivantys

      Welbeck looks like a decent buy by them.

      So Lamptey should have been on 1 goal and assist already ?

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years

        yesssss

    • Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Hoping for a Lamptey goal, assist, CS, and max bonus points. Likely outcome - 1pt 😀

    • Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Lamptey, winger or wingback?

      After missing the deadline for the second week in a row and still having aguero and Mitchell I have had to change my username...at least Salah as captain will be a differential as will not having Kane

      Lamptey really is an exciting player to watch

    • ClassiX
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Does that count as a Ryan save?

    • Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Lamptey still only 11.6% owned. Feel like I have a secret weapon in my team that everyone knows about.

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Would have been higher owned if he was not 100% of the time yellow flagged.

      2. ivantys
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Only those who watch Brighton's games would buy him. His overall points stats is trash.

            Casual comment, anyone that goes for a player purely on the points they have so far is a casual 😉

            1. ivantys
                3 months, 27 days ago

                You must have enjoyed your TAA's and Lamptey's hauls 😉

              I sold him because of the stats, better players in better teams.

          2. Africa United
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            I just got him out in a (Lamptey Mings Brakley to Chilwell Balbuena Bowen) Combo because of bad fixtures swing for Brighton

          Maupay looks like he's paralyzed every time he gets the ball in a dangerous position. Not a good sign, guess it's time to get rid

        • ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Maupay looking poor?

          Whats the big deal with Lamptey? As a non owner i’ve missed nothing? Averaging 3pts per game?

              A defender in a team who can't keep CS? You've missed nothing 😉

              I take it Lamptey non-owners just dont watch football, and rely solely on stats and points. He has been very unlucky, probably should have had an additional 20 points if not for bs

                This. Just watch him play

              Watch the game. It's quite scary if you're a non-owner imo. Every time he's in the box I think he'll get an assist or go down and win a penalty.

              The only fails will be Kane (C), DCL, Grealish, Reguilon. The rest of them will bring points

              CS basically guaranteed as it's Burnley and looking dangerous for a goal / assist
