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
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      yesssss

  9. Stormbringer22

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

  10. Nanoelektronicar

    Lamptey, winger or wingback?

    1. Gobigorgohome
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      RWB

  11. Samwise

    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

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Haha, don’t worry mate, Sam came good in the end

      🙂 BOL!

  12. Boz

    Lamptey really is an exciting player to watch

  13. ClassiX
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 22 days ago

    Does that count as a Ryan save?

  14. Deulofail
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 22 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
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

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

    2. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 22 days ago

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

      1. Garlana
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 22 days ago

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

        1. ivantys
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 22 days ago

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

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

    3. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

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

      1. Deulofail

        😮

  15. Lukakuna

    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

  16. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 22 days ago

    Maupay looking poor?

    1. J ⚒ Gimme ur Mané
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      He’s an awful player.

    2. Gnu

      Buggu'd for after his brace. 😉

      No excuses bro.

  21. DAZZ

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

    1. PocketZola
      • 4 Years

      mini roberto carlos

      Poor (yet wise) man's TAA

    4. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Nothing just very attacking position with the potential normal cs

    5. diesel001
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Looks attacking.

    6. S.Kuqi

      Exciting to watch. Best 4.5 def by distance.

      1. shiregeriatric
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        4.7

    7. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 22 days ago

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

    8. have you seen cyan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      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

      1. MarcusAurelius
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 22 days ago

        This. Just watch him play

    9. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      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.

  22. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 22 days ago

    Mendy
    Chilwell, Reguilon, Coufal
    Salah, Son, Ziyech, JRod, Grealish
    DCL, Kane(c)

    Button, Justin, Brewster, Branthwaite
    1.0 itb

    What do you think? Points prediction ?

    1. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      nailed on for a 22 pointer GW

      1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 22 days ago

        Thank you

    2. noone
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

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

      1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 22 days ago

        Was thinking of going with Chilwell as a captain tbh

    3. Little Red Lacazette
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      34 all out.

  23. noone
    • 4 Years

    One of these days, Lamptey will bang an 18 pointer

  24. S.Kuqi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Benched Lamptey and James will probably come on for run out to block my Lamptey haul 🙁

    5. Little Red Lacazette

      Humptey Lamptey should never be benched.

  26. Ron_Swanson
    • 11 Years

    Need a new GK. £5m or less. I was thinking Leno or Guita, or shall I just pick a £4.5m and leave?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Leno

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Guaita?!

      As an owner, no.

    3. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Don't go to Guaita

  27. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    Wow, looks like Lamptey will be double digits tonight!

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

    1. MarcusAurelius
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Why would you say this out loud. Cursed now

      1. Lazaretti

        Ppl try to jinx it. No A no G no cs no bps atm.

    Thoughts on best three Chelsea options to own?

    1. diesel001
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Chilwell, Ziyech, Werner

    2. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 22 days ago

      Chilwell and one of Zouma/James/Mendy. Not sure you need 3 for now

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 22 days ago

        Triple defense
