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.

    Ok Maupay I’ve held you 4 weeks for zero returns in nice fixtures. It’s over

      Same here.

    Still finding it strange to see a 1m98 wingback.

    But for his height Burn does quite okay.

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Burn was born to play Burnley

      1. Free Hat
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Burn to be alive

    2. Meinhoff
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Did you see him trying to cross the ball a minute ago?

      1. Free Hat
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Everyone can give a bad cross tbf.
        But he is quite agile and the thing is he gets in the positions to cross.

    I am surprised that Pope is not on 3BP

    1. Cojiro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Could still change

    Taylor 8 pointer on my bench. Classic.

      Go for broke is an underrated classic.

      1. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Haha I have to say I agree with the general rating

    4. Ain't No Holebas Girl
      • 3 Years

      Carcassonne for the win

      1. Deulofail
        • 5 Years

          Same, was surprised how good it was online! Got me through lockdown...

          1. Deulofail
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            Music gets stuck in me head though, and some weird tile-laying mechanic starts taking over my dreams and conception of real life in general.

    Lamptey should have had attacking returns. So unlucky.

    Also Maupay is a donkey. Crap player

  12. ivantys
      3 months, 23 days ago

      How is that not a foul even though it was a slip?

    • BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Taylor and Ryan on my bench ffs

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Why but why ??

        1. BrockLanders
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          KWP & McCarthy

        seems like that'd come from the Dyche playbook

    • Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Game finished?

    • keefyefc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Say what you want about the lack of attacking quality in this game
      But plenty of cheap defensive points on offer

    • Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Score Tariq score!

      Nice basketball save from Pope

    • ivantys
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Burnley seem contented with a draw

      • Cometh The Aouar...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Taylor on the field. Ryan on the bench. Grrr...Potter you troll

        1. Slouch87
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          Why om earth do you have Ryan on the bench ?

          1. Cometh The Aouar...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            I have 2 rotating GKs Ryan and McCarthy. I only benched Ryan because he was benched last week irl

            1. Slouch87
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 23 days ago

              So just start him. He either plays 90 or doesn't start. Strange decision.

              1. Cometh The Aouar...
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years

                No good saying that now! Game's done fella

      • Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        stupid Maupay gtf out of my team

      • Daniel - WC Active
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        CS for Lamptey juhuuuuu

      • BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        With the Burnley defence now back to its strongest, think its time to trust Taylor and play him every good fixture regardless of any other defender.

        1. Cometh The Aouar...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          Never lost faith in him. Looks set for some bonus too!

          1. Daniel - WC Active

        Tbf I'm not happy with just 6 points from Lamptey.

        4. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 23 days ago

          Why so shy at crossing the ball??? Not one of his better games.

        5. Vazza
            3 months, 23 days ago

            More importantly, are your players reliable replacements for Son and Kane?

          3 months, 23 days ago

          Ah well - hope Coufal can match or better that from Taylor
