Duffy and Lamptey start but Maupay benched as Brighton face Newcastle

Brighton and Hove Albion face Newcastle United in the final Premier League match of the day.

Kick-off at the Amex is at 17:30 GMT.

The visitors go into this match bottom of the table, following a win for Norwich City at Brentford earlier this afternoon.

Albion, despite not winning any of their last five league matches, will go fifth with a victory over the managerless Magpies.

The Seagulls have an excellent recent record against Newcastle, however, having not lost to today’s opponents in their last eight meetings. The hosts have conceded only one goal in those eight fixtures, beating Steve Bruce’s former side 3-0 on two occasions in 2020/21.

Graeme Jones will take temporary charge of Newcastle for very probably the final time this evening, with Eddie Howe in the director’s box at the Amex ahead of his imminent appointment.

Jones makes three changes to the side that began the 3-0 defeat to Chelsea, with the benched Javier Manquillo, Ryan Fraser and Sean Longstaff replaced by Jonjo Shelvey, Jacob Murphy and Miguel Almiron.

Graham Potter makes only one change to the side that started the Gameweek 11 draw at Anfield. Tariq Lamptey gets his first league start of the campaign, replacing Jakub Moder, but there is again no place in the starting XI for Neal Maupay.

Shane Duffy keeps his place at centre-half.

Duffy and Robert Sanchez are, by some distance, the most popular FPL players in tonight’s fixture. Both are owned by just under one in four FPL managers overall and just under 40% of the top 10,000 Fantasy bosses, while 11% of the top 10k own both of them.

    Only worry the Brighton left back has in this game is stepping on a rake

    1. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      David Luiz has a new challenger

  3. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Maupay better come on, can't stand rival getting Livramento off the bench again when I start him every week

    Sanchez howler the only chance Brighton lose this CS.

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Newcastle got absolutely nothing going forward have they. Shocking team. January cant come soon enough for the investment to inject this squad.

    2. No Need
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Already plotting his route to 2 points

    3. Dthinger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      He would have to literally toss t into his own net the way it’s going so far

  5. Weak Become Heros
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Mbeumo and Raph to Son and Jota this week for free for me.

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Bit early mate

    2. Aeu96197
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      It is probably too early. But you must also have some stash in the bank mate, to be able to do that

  6. Dynamic Duos
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Where is Sanchez's save ?

    1. Atimis
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Never been there

  7. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Lamptey in the mood!

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      xLively.

    2. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Got the Aaron Lennon tiny man dribbling going on

  8. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Eddie Howe gone to find a shredder.

    1. No Need
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      And the rest of the ninja turtles

    2. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      He won't fit in there!

  9. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Can’t really decide what to do with that Brentford crap duo, next fixture is good but this one was already better…

    1. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I mean it's not like they'll never get points, and there's not many options screaming out anyway. Just relax and reassess after the international break

      1. Atimis
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Plenty options in midfield tbh, STs are poor yeah

        1. mynameisq
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          True true, don't know your full team but yeah wouldn't be too happy with a double up

    2. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Newcastle are pretty awful, Norwich have been too but I think if you have them you have to play them next week, or at least one of them. After that though get rid

    3. The Red Devil
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Giving them Newcastle, not very optimistic though

    4. Dammit_182
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Only got Toney and I’ll hold for Newcastle

    5. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Wait a minute where’s Manquillo?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Ah rested

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Rested for what lol?

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            International break injury lol

        2. lilmessipran
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Dropped

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Strange if so

    6. Bertonian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Anyone going to persist with the Brentford deadly duo ?

      1. DA Minnion (Former great)
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        No .

        1. Flynny
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I think 1 has to go.....

    7. DA Minnion (Former great)
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Gallagher and Guiata bringing home the bacon today.

      1. Pep bites Kun
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Nice one!

      2. Dammit_182
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Yea, had them for weeks, benched Gallagher last week and was no way I was dropping him again. 2 clean sheets in a row fir guita is very nice too. Just a shame I got rid of cancello (for James). Might have to accept he is the best city asset and buy back (for rudiger).

      3. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I know only 5.7 but Hwang starting to feel a bad pick

        1. Cok3y5murf
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Tough fixture

          1. Finding Timo
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Yeh I benched him initially but then played over mount and livra. I want to cry

        2. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Yep, wont play us every week (cant believe im saying this) 😀

      4. No Need
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        As an ASM owner the only good thing is he is easy to identify

      5. GoonerGirl
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Someone on here recommended I buy Trossard and fpl fix recommended Trossard as well, of course I decided to go against the advice and go with ESR.
        I just know he won't do anything tomorrow now.

        1. NateDog
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 12 days ago

          ESR is still a good option, Watford is a great fixture too

          1. GoonerGirl
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Yeah, you're right. It's only because I've made the wrong choice in transfers the last 3 game weeks so think it'll happen again, only reason I'm concerned really.

            1. NateDog
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 12 days ago

              I get that, just be patient and I'd say you'll be fine. I brought in Trossard but knew realistically it'd be short-term, but looking at Arsenal's fixtures if I had ESR I'd be pretty happy to keep him at least up until around GW20

        2. Gunneryank
            2 months, 12 days ago

            ESR is surely a better pick than Trossard. Arsenal should turn Watford over. Unless i just jinxed it.

            1. GoonerGirl
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              Let's hope you haven't lol COYG

              1. Gunneryank
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  It'll be fine. What's the worst that could happen....?

                  😀

          • lilmessipran

            2 fts exact money to do this -

            Christensen + Luiz to lamptey + Gallagher..do it or wait?

          • Firminoooo

            • 6 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Need a goal from Newcastle. Sanchez and Duffy CS will kill my rank.

            1. No Need
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              Sanch will sort it out

            2. Gunneryank
                2 months, 12 days ago

                I'm afraid that won't do.

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 12 days ago

                Hope that also, but might bet that it's not gona happen.

                • 9 Years
                2 months, 12 days ago

                I don't concur.

            3. Flynny
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              Are there any decent strikers sub 7.5m to buy??

              1. Baps hunter

                • 4 Years

                Are there any decent strikers to buy?!?

                1. Gunneryank
                    2 months, 12 days ago

                    My strikers are doing a protest art piece social statement about the natural of not having things. Like goals. It's quite profound.

                2. DA Minnion (Former great)
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  Adam Armstrong.

                3. Baps hunter
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  Hwang?

                4. KAPTAIN KANE
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  Pukki

                  1. Flynny
                    • 6 Years
                    2 months, 12 days ago

                    Pukki and Armstrong seem the best of the bunch really!!

                    1. Pep bites Kun
                      • 5 Years
                      2 months, 12 days ago

                      Pukki I like. Sou attack seems up in the air.

                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 12 days ago

                    Yep

                  3. Baps hunter
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 12 days ago

                    He hasn't been bad this season, but without Buendia he hasn't got any service and has been forced to defend too much.

                5. G B
                  • 10 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  I'm hoping Eddie Howe won't continue with this disgusting 541 that Jones is using, and Wilson becomes an top option again.

                6. Pep bites Kun
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  Nacho could be a good buy - nice fixtures

                7. Dammit_182
                    2 months, 12 days ago

                    I’ll be getting in Wilson - 3 of the next 4 fixtures look great and he is 7.3.

                    Will then ditch him.

                8. KAPTAIN KANE
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  Now Trossard on penalties is a completely different proposition. Hmm….

                9. Baps hunter
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  At least from what I've seen, even Toney will score vs this Newcastle team. So no need to ditch him yet.

                  1. Dammit_182
                      2 months, 12 days ago

                      I’ll be keeping for that game too.

                    Best defender up to 5.6?

                      • 5 Years
                      2 months, 12 days ago

                      Livramento

                    2. Baps hunter
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 12 days ago

                      Stones, but Laporte is the risk.

                        If we knew who would be starting maybe

                        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!

                          Tomorrow will be interesting

                    Good evening all!! Need to get Cancelo in!!! Early thoughts of what I should, advice welcomed!!

                    A- Raphinha to Gallagher or Toney to Hwang to enable Rudiger to Cancelo(have Chilwell)
                    Or
                    B- Toney to 4.4 or Raphinha to 4.4 and move White to Cancelo

                    Cheers everyone!!

                        Both options have word "or"...

                      Those both suck. I wouldn’t want to get rid of Rudiger. I wouldn’t want to get rid of Raphinha. And I wouldn’t want a 4.4 forward

                        Should have said the 4.4 are just 3rd bench fodder !! I have 15 active players atm and it’s causing massive headaches

                    If Brighton go 5th in the Premier League, does it show the strength or weakness in England?

                      It just shows that they are an excellent, well-coached team at the peak of their powers. Seeing them in potential relegation trouble last year was one of the biggest footballing mysteries of recent times.

                        True.

                        But what does it say about the other 19 or so told big 6?

                      It shows the difference a good manager can do with a squad of half decent players & excellent player recruitment

                        That's right.

                        Decent manager and good club.

                      Brighton are a decent team. Defensively solid, good midfield with good technical players and play some nice football. It's been up top that they've really had most of their issues, a reliable striker (or possibly playing with Trossard as a false 9 as it's working well currently) means they should be in the top 10

                        I agree

                        Yep, as much as it pains me to say it as a Palace fan, Brighton are a very good side/mix of players and their Manager has them playing well.

                          You guys aren't doing too bad at the minute either! Got a lot of great talent at the club and Vieira is doing really well with getting the best out of them

                      Sounds like a loaded question.

                    What're havertz owners doing? Is he at the risk of being benched if Lukaku is back fit after IB? Original plan was him to son, but need the funds to get cancelo too

                      Moving to Son most likely.

                      Probably sell to Jota, and then upgrade defense week after

                    Is Foden at risk home to Everton with PSG a few days later?

                      Only safe pick is Cancelo

                      2 months, 12 days ago

                      Yes, but tough to say who'll start, all city players are a risk barring cancelo I think
                      Pep doesn't seem to drop in form players

                    9 ESR bench points last week and 14 off the bench for Cancelo this week.

                    Love some jam

                    Anyone still without Trent? Wondering whether I can get away with it!!!

                      I think Chelsea full backs and Cancelo have the potential to match him, at least for value.

                      I bought him for Dias this week. If you have Cancelo, Chilly and James, you might get away with it.

                      I have been since GW4 but have had my sights set on him for next week onwards. They normally put a few past Arsenal and the run after that is decent, only worry I have is how long Keita is out for, haven't won a game this season without him and have conceded 8 in 4 in his absence

                    28 from 5 players. I’ll take it. Livra points languishing on the bench though.
