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.

      Straight red is 3 games in the league, right? Or only for intentional violent conduct?

        One game for professional foul.

        Professional foul, 1 game.

        only for intentional violent conduct

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

          Ramsdale

        2. BIG TONES
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Never benching Ramsdale ever again after missing 10 points by benching for Foster last GW

        3. mdm
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Steele

        Ramsdale to Dunk worth a hit ?

      8. F4L
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Imagine having a FK 35 yards from goal and not shooting against a CB in goal...

        1. BIG TONES
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Ridiculous right

      9. Randaxus
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I took a hit to go from Sanchez to Guaita.

            My condolences on missing out on the rollercoaster ride that is SANCHEZZZ

        • KAPTAIN KANE

            • 9 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

          • 5 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Who plays next week? Sherpa or Steel?

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

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

            Just wondered that, as Steele is my other keeper - so naturally, the other guy will play

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              I have Steele to. Going by how things are going, expect Sherpa to play!

          LiveFPL predicting a green area for me from 135k to 115k after 25 points from 9 😀

        • Stimps
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

                • 8 Years
                2 months, 12 days ago

                TAA, Son, Salah (c), Raphina, Vardy.... So I guess need a haul or 3

                1. Danno - Emre Canada
                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

            Luckily for me i played foster and benched sanchez by mistake this week.
            30 mins ago i was fuming.

            Farke apparently sacked. What a weird decision.

            1. Randaxus
                2 months, 12 days ago

                They sacked him after they won? lmfao

              • Eh, just one more thing ...

                • 10 Years

                Mad if true

              • F4L
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 12 days ago

                Looks like they already had someone lined up, today was just a formality. Still pretty harsh

              • Cruicky
                • 10 Years
                2 months, 12 days ago

                correct decision looking at his PL record. very bizarre timing after they managed to actually win a PL game, should have done it last week.

                1. Randaxus
                    2 months, 12 days ago

                    If Pep Guardiola was the manager of Norwich they would still lose almost every game lol

                Criminal from Newcastle not to get a shot on target at all there...

                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  Dunk is a big unit

                • 11 Years
                2 months, 12 days ago

                So is Steele the #2

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

                  I’m hoping so. He started the cup games.

                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  Yes. Bench tonight suggests so

              • JONALDINHO
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 12 days ago

                34 with Ramsdale, White, Salah(C), Trent and Jota left. First decent week in a long time

                1. Dthinger

                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  A decent week for me too. 43 but just TAA, Salah, and ESR left

              • tiger

                Farke finally wins a game...

                Right, that's it you're sacked!

                1. Hy liverpool
                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  Really?

                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  To be fair they've been horrible for the whole season 1 game won doesn't tell much

                3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  Norwich weren't good today either though, it was yet another poor performance

                  They conceded 2.79 XG and 19 shots and fluked 2 goals from 1.16 XG

                Kaptain Kane you only have yourself to blame for this Sanchez disaster.

                On 1 save you asked for 2 more.
                - 1 goal attempted
                - 1 denial of goalscoring opportunity

                I blame you entirely.

                  The Athletic report that Norwich manager Daniel Farke has been sacked this evening.

                      Perhaps. But Farke is better.

                          Good plan, except for the fact they haven't got the new guy yet. 😀

                            if they haven't lined someone up, then yeah it's extremely weird

                      Double chelsea defence, Toney & Sanchez.. solid start, Cancelo my only saving grace at the moment.

                      Trent, Salah, Son, ESR, Vardy & Antonio left, so not all bad.

                        Triple Chelsea defence here, sold Cancelo for James and Antonio for Toney to fund other moves next GW... Also got Sanchez, Mbeumo and started Broja ahead of Raphinha and Livra.

                        On 14 points at the moment with only Trent, Salah, Son and Vardy left. You're fine mate

                      Norwich finally win a game, and away from home at that. and gets the DCM award

                      Funny old game as Greavsie would have said.

                        Not sure yet but Son or Jota for me.

                        Is Lukaku and Werner back? If so, I’ll probably get Jota or Raphinhia

                          No … not serious foul play so only 1 match.

                        Just going to play Steele probably.

                      Well, now I have a keeper dilemma I guess… do I play Steele who will surely try to snatch his chance at the #1 jersey against Villa, or McCarthy, who will be up against Norwich on a new manager bounce?
