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.

      I didn't have the balls to bench TAA over Taylor and I am paying the price. I deserve this.

        You do deserve this, but no in their right mind would play Taylor over TAA

          Not only did I miss the deadline, I didn't even know it was 4pm. First time in my FPL career that's happened. Had 2fts aswell ffs. Ayling coming for Pulisic instead of getting Ziyech earlier in the week

                      and? It's 0.1m. You're actually taking more money out of your team by replacing him with Kilman.
