Brighton v Leeds team news: Raphinha returns as Duffy is benched

Brighton and Hove Albion take on Leeds United in the final Premier League match of the day, with two of the three most-owned Fantasy Premier League (FPL) assets on show back from injury and suspension – and the other one benched.

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

Robert Sanchez is back between the posts for the hosts after serving a one-game suspension in Gameweek 12, replacing Jason Steele.

Shane Duffy is a substitute for only the second time this season, however, with Joel Veltman recalled at the expense of the Irishman.

Neal Maupay for Adam Lallana is Graham Potter’s other alteration, while Enock Mwepu is back on the bench after recovering from a muscle injury.

Any notable Fantasy interest in Leeds players is restricted to Raphinha, who sits in around one in five FPL squads and in over 50% of the top 10,000 managers’ teams.

He and Rodrigo replace Joe Gelhardt and Mateusz Klich in Marcelo Bielsa’s starting XI, while Junior Firpo is in for Pascal Struijk at left-back.

GAMEWEEK 13 LINE-UPS

Brighton and Hove Albion XI: Sanchez, Dunk, Webster, Veltman, Cucurella, Lamptey, Bissouma, Moder, Gross, Trossard, Maupay.

Subs: Steele, Mac Allister, Mwepu, Lallana, March, Duffy, Locadia, Richards, Sarmiento.

Leeds United XI: Meslier, Llorente, Cooper, Firpo, Dallas, Forshaw, Phillips, Harrison, James, Raphinha, Rodrigo.

Subs: Klaesson, Roberts, Struijk, Gelhardt, Cresswell, Klich, McCarron, Shackleton, Jenkins.

      Please no. Would ruin my great GW so far

    4. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      As a Sanchez and Raph owner I'd take it.

    5. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Would be a travesty

  5. HonestBlatter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Sanchez has to get some baps from this

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Why? Game has been played down the other end

  6. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    9 goals from 5 games and LFC with 45% of them.

    1. JBG
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Another reason to why 5-4-1 is better going forward.

      Sanchez should get extra bps for staying awake 1st half.

      1. HonestBlatter

    1. tbos83
      • 1 Year

  11. JBG
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Why has Bielsa put Raph on the left??

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Cameras might pick him out better

    2. G B
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Trying to find him some space probably. Was marked out of the game on the right.

  12. Colonel Shoe 肝池
    • 10 Years

    Really let down by my midfield ....esr, Gallagher, raphina..... Pain

    1. G B
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      When it comes to budget glue guys (5.5m-6.5m), you can't beat the defenders atm.

    2. PLerix
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      You get what you pay

  13. Steve The Spud

    Brighton content with their point at home, pathetic, please concede

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Should be 3 or 4 up … if only they had a striker

  14. TorresMagic™

    3 - Cucurella (35)
    2 - Lamptey (31)
    1 - Sánchez (28)

    Meslier (26)
    Veltman (25)
    Dunk (25)

    1. DAZZ
      • 7 Years

      Hope this stays

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Weird given Meslier has kept Leeds in it

    3. Ephurion
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Livramento-> Lamptey could become popular

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        No point if Brighton miss every sitter he creates

  15. fusen
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Raph just went from 1 BPS to 2 BPS

    3 minutes left to get 30 more...

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      ?

      1. fusen
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        the players with the most BPS get bonus points, they are two separate things.

      2. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        BPS vs bonus

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      ?

    3. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Yeah but people only actually care about the bonus points.

      1. fusen
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        All the more reason to pay attention to BPS to figure out who is going to get the bonus

        1. Eh, just one more thing ...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Hahaha … not when you talking about 1 BPS or 2 BPS …

          1. Eh, just one more thing ...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            I appreciate you point was to highlight just how pish Raphinha has been tbf.

  16. Freshy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    14 shots off target BHA

  17. JBG
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    These players don't like to score goals it seems.

  18. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Raphinha to Jota is going to be a popular move for GW14!

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Crazy before Palace.

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      He’ll stay in my team for another 2 weeks

    3. Nomar
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Leeds are sh*te though.

      1. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Really are, Palace will win

    4. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Just unfortunate it's late for non owners, missed a haul

      1. Nomar
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        More to come, no doubt

        1. Salah’s Sonnet
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          I do hope so!

  19. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Wilson or Jesus?

    1. tbos83
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Wilson has good couple of fixtures

  20. Nomar
    • 12 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Meslier.

    1 CS all the time I had him. Sold him 2 weeks ago. Now he keeps a Cleanie.

    Guaita, CS galore until I get him.

    I can never get it right with keepers.

    1. Ephurion
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I recommend swallowing that pride and just get Ramsdale. I just did, and it feels good

      1. Nomar
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Yeah, probably will on my wildcard.

  21. _Ninja_

    1. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      He's so annoying on every other platform as well

    2. denial
      • 12 Years

      Total pranny.

    3. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      That's his job. He's annoying, so his Sutton, but they're better craic than most pundits. Some good buzz on their show the odd time.

  29. wulfrunian

    I watched the two 0-0 games.At least it was a good fpl day.

    1. dlrowssoB

        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        We played so bad.There is no one that can create chances for Raul...

      Looks like my bunch with a different frontline.
