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.

    Anyone bored with this game?

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!

      Is there a football game happening?

      1. Gunneryank
          2 months, 19 days ago

          In the strictest technical sense, yes.

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Switched to Leipzig vs Borussia. Loving it.

    2. Firmino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      So annoying I'm 0.1 short to do Christensen&Raphinha -> Lamptey&Jota

      1. lilmessipran
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Jota seems interesting..could even do something similar for my team

      2. Dthinger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Why are you looking to sell Raphinha?

        1. Firmino
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Jota is essential

          1. Dthinger
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Still… there must be another way to get him

          2. Salah’s Sonnet
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Essential?

        2. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Raph probably needs to go. Leeds aren't good enough.

      3. DA Minnion (Former great)
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Lamptey will break soon.

    3. lilmessipran
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Can I go early transfers with this lot?

      Ramsdale Foster
      Taa Cancelo James Christensen Livra
      Salah Raph Foden Luiz Brownhill
      Kane Antonio Jimi

      2fts 0.6 itb, Christensen + Luiz to Lamptey + Gallagher? Yay/Nay? (exact cash for this before Gallagher goes up in price today)

      1. Flynny
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Don't do it

        1. Salah’s Sonnet
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Why?

      2. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Seems risky first day of IB

      3. Bertonian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Looking at Gallagher myself (59 points & good fixtures to come) so looks like a solid moves

    4. have you seen cyan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      at the start of the season I had maguire shaw double up

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Everyone started with Shaw. When did you get rid is the question.

        1. have you seen cyan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          lost Maguire after GW2, Shaw after GW5

      2. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        If it helps I remember someone here telling me instead of getting rid of Maguire before GW4, I should be doubling up on ManUtd defence. They conceded in the next 6 in a row

        1. have you seen cyan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Lol

    5. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Spurs def audition tomorrow. That run of games + Conte can make Reg at 5.0 really interesting!

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        They have had their audition vs Vitesse.

        1. Dthinger
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          And they were all pretty bad

          1. Dthinger
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Sorry- all the defenders were bad. The others were fine

      2. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Will run out of defender spots at this rate.

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Looking to get rid of my double Chelsea. Christensen to Reg is an easy swap.

          1. Scots Gooner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Honestly that's the transfer I'm hoping for, assuming Spurs look half decent

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              If Conte can't nobody can.

          2. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Easy, but not good.

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Have this defense. Who would you recommend for 5.0?

              TAA Cancelo Rudiger Livra 5.0

    6. Dynamic Duos
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      How does this look please? Haverts and Toney to Son and Gelhardt -4?

      Sanchez
      TAA Cancelo Chilwell Livramento
      Salah Son Foden Jota
      Jesus Jimenez

      Foster Tierney Gelhardt Sissoko

    7. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 5 Years

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

        2. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Murphy terrible challenge

    8. Gunneryank
        2 months, 19 days ago

        That's right boys, just keep that net sparkling clean, no blemishes. Sanchez, stop mucking around!

      • Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years

        Livra's 6 on the bench and Chelsea's double defense sums up this GW!
