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.

    If Arsenal were Barca Lite then Brighton are Barca Fully Skimmed.

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

    1. Little Red Lacazette

      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
      • 12 Years
      11 months, 16 days ago

      Burn was born to play Burnley

      1. Free Hat
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 16 days ago

        Burn to be alive

    2. Meinhoff
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 16 days ago

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

      1. Free Hat
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 16 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
      • 7 Years

      Could still change

  8. BenDavies

    3. Ógie

      Go for broke is an underrated classic.

      1. Deulofail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 16 days ago

        Haha I have to say I agree with the general rating

    4. Ain't No Holebas Girl
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 16 days ago

      Carcassonne for the win

      1. Deulofail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

            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.

  11. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years

    Lamptey should have had attacking returns. So unlucky.

    Also Maupay is a donkey. Crap player

  12. ivantys
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 16 days ago

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

  13. BrockLanders
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 16 days ago

    Taylor and Ryan on my bench ffs

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

      Why but why ??

      1. BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 16 days ago

        KWP & McCarthy

  14. Meinhoff
    • 9 Years

    HOLD LAMPTAYLOR

  15. The Mandalorian

    • 9 Years

    11 Burnley players now running towards the Brighton goal in a herd.

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 16 days ago

      seems like that'd come from the Dyche playbook

  16. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 16 days ago

    Game finished?

  17. keefyefc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 16 days ago

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

  18. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Score Tariq score!

  19. sunzip14

    0-0 FT. YAY!!!!

  20. Ze_Austin

    Nice basketball save from Pope

  21. ivantys
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 16 days ago

    Burnley seem contented with a draw

  22. Wild Guus Chase
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 16 days ago

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

    1. Slouch87
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 16 days ago

      Why om earth do you have Ryan on the bench ?

      1. Wild Guus Chase
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 16 days ago

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

        1. Slouch87
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 16 days ago

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

          1. Wild Guus Chase
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            11 months, 16 days ago

            No good saying that now! Game's done fella

  23. Gobigorgohome
    • 10 Years
    11 months, 16 days ago

    stupid Maupay gtf out of my team

  24. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    11 months, 16 days ago

    CS for Lamptey juhuuuuu

  25. BenDavies
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 16 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. Wild Guus Chase
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 16 days ago

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

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years

    4. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 16 days ago

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

    5. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 16 days ago

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

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