Welbeck and Podence missing as Brighton host Wolves

Brighton and Wolves are without key attackers as they meet at the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Danny Welbeck (£5.5m) came into the weekend with a yellow flag for his knee injury and is absent from the matchday squad.

That is now two matches in a row the Brighton forward has missed out on a place in the starting XI; Neal Maupay (£6.1m) Aaron Connolly (£5.2m) and Leandro Trossard (£5.7m) comprising the front-three against Wolves.

Tariq Lamptey (£4.7m) remains sidelined for his hamstring injury, so Joël Veltman (£4.3m) features on the right-hand side again, Dan Burn (£4.3m) earning a third successive start on the left of defence.

They sit in front of Robert Sanchez (£4.4m) who features for the fifth match in a row since displacing Mat Ryan (£4.3m).

Daniel Podence (£5.5m) is the key absentee for Wolves, as well as Raúl Jiménez (£8.2m) of course, with Fabio Silva (£5.2m) coming into the side to lead the attack.

Nuno Espirito Santo has gone back to the 4-2-3-1 formation he experimented with recently, featuring an attacking-midfield trio of Pedro Neto (£6.0m), Vitinha (£4.8m) and Adama Traoré (£6.1m).

Max Kilman (£4.1m) is the man to suffer from Nuno’s downsizing of the defence, Rayan Aït-Nouri (£5.0m) and Nelson Semedo (£5.4m) operating either side of Romain Saïss (£5.1m) and Conor Coady (£4.9m).

Brighton and Hove Albion XI: Sanchez; White, Dunk, Webster; Burn, March, Bissouma, Veltman; Trossard, Connolly; Maupay.

Wolves XI: Patrício; Aït-Nouri, Saïss, Coady, Semedo; Neves, Moutinho; Neto, Vitinha, A Traoré; F Silva.

    Who would you rather have long term between Son and Kane?

    1. Danstoke82
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Really is flip a coin as they seem to match each other but as Kane has pens I guess that edges it

    2. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Close, very close. Kane probably sneaks it due to have PK duties.

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Both seem to score pretty similar
      I would lean Son due to lower price and more points for a goal and CS

    4. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Son cos he's cheaper and there's cheaper strikers that could do as good as Kane.

    5. Balls of Steel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Tough one to call, think both will return similar points over the season. Son better value but Kane has penalties and we all know how many teams are getting this season!

    6. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Son, they assist each other and he's 1.3m cheaper.

    7. Reeker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Kane the better FPL option but Son is cheaper so. I also feel Kane is more captainable

    8. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Cheers all - think I would end up going with Son as he is that bit cheaper. Looks like he is set for a first 250 point season though.

    Just listening...Semedo A?

  4. Danstoke82
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 29 days ago

    Saiss is a goal machine right now.

  5. ivantys
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 29 days ago

    That useless Semedo finally got an assist.

  6. Ady87
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 29 days ago

    Has Nuno put his dummy back in and I can get Saiss back in then?

  7. Rolls-Royce
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 29 days ago

    Saiss 😎

    Guys, is Sanchez => DDG for FT is the best GK transfer I can do in order to have playing keeper in GW18 and double in DGW19?

    Sanchez (Forster)
    Dias • Targett • Reguilon • Mitchell (Dallas)
    KDB • B.Fernandes • Grealish • Son (Salah)
    DCL • Brewster (Bamford)

    2FTs, 0.9ITB

    Semedo Assist?!

    It is a lie

    😆 Semedo attacking returns. What a troll

    Any chance of spurs v Fulham being tagged onto the end of GW19?

    TIA

    1. djman102
      • 12 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      No chance. Fulham already have a double.

    2. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Decent chance imo. It's in their winter break but that was thrown out the window for City/United. Spurs being in Europe doesn't leave too many midweek either.

      1. Marcin the Pole
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Ignore me. Completely forgot Fulham were playing on the Weds that week

    3. umerlfc
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Fulham already play twice in 19, no chance they play thrice imo

    4. kysersosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Ignore. Just saw Fulham already have a double

  13. Lindelol

    had semedo for so many weeks and he did nothing

    1. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 29 days ago

      He got me a 9 once while doing nothing and I was happy

      Play better

  14. Miro

    9 months, 29 days ago

    Would you play FH in 18 if you had only 6 players and 1 FT?

    1. MOTHRA
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Yes

  15. KAPTAIN KANE

    Another low owned player goal 🙂

    1. Rolls-Royce
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Thought Saiss was fairly owned.

      1. Marcin the Pole

    FFS Semedo assist, sold him in GW10

    1. Balls of Steel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      He won't return again for 10 more games!

  18. JJeyy

    Saiss absolute legend of my team, 20 points in last 3

  19. BenDavies
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 29 days ago

    Saiss is a big goal threat

    1. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      That’s why we all owned him until idiot Nino dropped him to be super boring

    Happy to have Saiss in my FH18 draft for his inevitable blank next week now! How’s it looking? 0.4 ITB. Hinges on Aguero starting chances obviously.

    Darlow
    Saiss Cancelo Holding
    KDB Son Bruno ElGhazi Neto
    Aguero Kane

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Nice, obviously very Aguero dependent. Not massively convinced by Neto however - prefer Saka at that price.

  21. Flair

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO BISSOUMA SUSPENDED

    Down to 9 men!

        9 men in GW18 😉

        1. Shineonme
          • 5 Years

          Thats good enough

      He was 2 pter anyway

        For GW18, this week is going swimmingly

  22. The Train Driver

    Scout picks killing it this week

  23. TheDragon
    • 3 Years

    The average for the GW is going to be 70 points at this rate..

    Conn overhead kick nearly

  25. Flair

    No Bissouma is a major benefit for City in GW18. Aguero (C)

  26. Fred54
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 29 days ago

    As I said, only serious players have Wolves def... well just Saiss.

  27. Pukki Party

    People on FH, we need a good bench for next week right?

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Looks that way

    2. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      I will be having at least 2 playing options there, yes.

      1. Pukki Party
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        What players you got? As cheap as possible playing fodder or actual good options for a return?

    3. Bruce Lee
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      100%

    4. MSTRKRFTSMN
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      No you want a thin bench because really you should be able to name 11 guaranteed starters and want to spend all your money on those 11 players

      1. Pukki Party
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        We're having issues telling what teams have a game each gameweek though

  28. Big_Andy_GAWA
    • 10 Years
    9 months, 29 days ago

    Bissouma surely got a touch on the ball when he was given a YC?! Shocking.
    Was refreshing to have watched The Old Firm today. Switch over to EPL games and fouls called for EVERYTHING. Brutal!!!

    1. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      How did Kamara play?

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Really well. He has been excellent this past 10 months or so.

        1. Pukki Party
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 29 days ago

          Yeah he'll be a Premier League player one day. Been great for Finland national team too.

    Adams not in any training pics either. Looks like he might be out.
