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.

    Zaha might struggle against Burnley next week, I might sell for Bruno / Rash / Greenwood / Jota

      Tempting but then he has Newcastle and West Brom

      I think if he doesn’t return this week he could be on his bike

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        11 months, 25 days ago

        Newcastle are not that bad so it is only the Fulham game

  2. Gobigorgohome
    • 10 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    I used to think McNeil is decent player

  3. Joey Tribbiani
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Maupay is useless

    1. Gobigorgohome
      • 10 Years

      this

      yes free money

        Wait

    So much Lamptey talk and he's got no bps?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      Missed a bug chance earlier. Not dribbling. Just running.

    2. doher.ty

      The guy has been very good. BPS doesn't always reflect the small off the ball things that Lamptey does that has made him a threat this game.

    3. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      He will with the upcoming attacking returns

    4. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      11 months, 25 days ago

      I've seen Salah make the difference in many games and be nowhere near the baps. Sometimes the scoring system doesn't reflect the kind of risk taking play that is needed to win games.

    Lamptey 1st on my bench. 6 points is perfect, strikes a balance between giving me something to look forward to if Reece James gets rotated, and not being too much of a loss if he gets stuck on the bench.

    1. sunzip14
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      Have you thought about the possibility of him coming on at 85'?

      1. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • 11 Years
        11 months, 25 days ago

        Hence the second part

        1. sunzip14
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 25 days ago

          5 point loss is too much for me at this stage. You are too optimistic, it seems 😀

            • 11 Years
            11 months, 25 days ago

            Optimism needs to come from somewhere when you're ranked close to 4m lol

      Benching Lamptey against Burnley was bold.

    3 - Veltman, Mee (29)
    1 - Taylor (28)

    1. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      I benched Taylor for Kilman last minute, s***

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        11 months, 25 days ago

        Who is this guy Veltman?

    2. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      Lamptey's going to be getting all his baps from goals this game

    3. fridge
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      Feel like I might regret benching Taylor...

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Here, for Cancelo

  8. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Time to take Lamptey and bank the clean sheet

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      *take Lamptey off

  9. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Maupay left out of last GW squad in order to bring him back down to earth? Hardly an inflated ego due to number of goals he scores.

  10. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    The real J. Rod coming in

  11. BenDavies
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Taylor on for 9 points. If it stays this way, I will punish myself for playing TAA over him.

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      Wait .

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      Wait for TAA's 16 pointer.

    3. sunzip14
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      TAA will come good. I finally sold him this GW 😀

  12. THFC4LIFE

    Chances of Reece James starting tomorrow?

    1. have you seen cyan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      theres doubts? Isnt he pretty much nailed?

    2. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      I think he will, we need attacking full back to crack Sheffield defense

    3. JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      I think he’ll start with azpi left back. Chilwell better used with Werner LW so he can overlap. Pulisic likely to come in for him so they need an overlapping full back for Ziyech instead

      1. THFC4LIFE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 25 days ago

        Pulisic isn’t fit to play according to Frank

    4. some witty pun
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      As a Chelsea fan I think he starts - need him to provide the width on the right for Ziyech to drift inwards

  13. TomSaints
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    14 shots off target and counting..,

    1. Deulofail

      Xhaka's open play record here

      That's amore...

      Wait.

      Thats a Maupay.

  14. ivantys

    Lamptey always in position to receive a pass to shoot but his teammates never pass to him.

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      Yeah, what's wrong with them we all own him on ffs

    2. Joey Tribbiani
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 25 days ago

      yup...

  15. some witty pun
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Lamptey is quite a steal at his price, Brighton a midtable team and he's playing almost like a RW

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      Lamprey is most overrated pick on on here. Not even averaging 4 ppg and for just .5 more u can get players like zouma bellerin etc

      Brighton cant keep cleanies doesnt matter where they are on the table

      Burnkey home and fulham home. That will be their two clean sheets all season from now

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 25 days ago

        Okay sir.

      2. Hulk Smash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 25 days ago

        He was very unlucky to be subbed early when they did keep a cleany. He also got an assist in that game so would likely have about 6 more points if he'd stayed on for 3 more minutes.

  16. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Well done so far to those who kept ryan

  17. sunzip14
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Shouldn't have checked my live rank. Too big a jump with Lamptey and Taylor. Doesn't end well usually !

  18. camarozz

    Wow just toying with my 2fts. I have Robbo and he's only owned by 17.9%..

    Think il be keeping him tbh. Almost a differencial 🙂

    1. FPL Virgin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      Scotland are going to flog him over the international break. Can see him being benched against Leicester.

      1. Deulofail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 25 days ago

        Slavery!

    2. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      Differential isn't necessarily a positive

  19. Old Man
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    I hate to be too much of a pessimist but don't Burnley have a habit of scoring late goals in close matches like these (over the past few years)?

  20. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Looking ahead to next gw think kdb to Bruno is a bad move it I captain fernandes ?

  21. BenDavies
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    I find myself hoping for a Foden benching with Taylor first on my bench

  22. DAZZ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    What happened to Ashley Barnes. regressed massively from a few seasons ago.

    1. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      Injuries

  23. TomSaints
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Surely Brighton score.

  24. sirmorbach
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Lamptey is one hell of a player.

  25. Hulk Smash
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Wtf is with Brighton taking short corners when they have 3 or 4 six foot defenders?

  26. bso
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    I was planning to get Vardy to Jimenez GW10...but have the exact amount and he is going up tonight. Should I get him in now?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      Far too early imo

  27. FC Hakkebøf
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    OMG! Lamptey close again. Geez

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Seriously?

    2. Ode
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

    3. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years

    4. Joey Tribbiani

    5. DRIZ ✅
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      Wonder how you react when there is a goal

  28. keefyefc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Pope getting me some decent points in his last game for me
    I'll be playing Martinez for the next 7 game weeks
    So it's time to sell for a £4m bench fodder to free up some funds

  29. Niho992
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Congratz Lamptey owners on CS. Well done.

    1. Ode
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 25 days ago

      They deserve it tbh

  30. DRIZ ✅
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 25 days ago

    Lamptey any bonus?
