Brighton v Palace team news: Olise + Eze start, Lamptey benched

Double Gameweek 22 gets underway this evening as Brighton and Hove Albion play host to Crystal Palace in the M23 derby.

Kick-off is at 20:00 GMT.

Graham Potter makes two changes from his team’s 3-2 win at Everton, with Pascal Gross and Jakub Moder coming in for Enock Mwepu (hamstring) and Yves Bissouma (international duty).

That means Tariq Lamptey has to settle for a place on the bench, with Joel Veltman preferred at right-back.

Jeremy Sarmiento (hamstring) and Lewis Dunk (knee) miss out completely, although Dunk could be back for Brighton’s second Gameweek 22 match against Chelsea on Tuesday.

Crystal Palace, who have lost their last three league matches on the road without scoring, make four changes from Double Gameweek 21, as Jack Butland, Conor Gallagher, Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise replace Vicente Guaita, Luka Milivojevic, Jordan Ayew and Christian Benteke.

Notably, Eze makes his first league start of the season, whilst Olise is handed an opportunity to shine from the off, having been directly involved in five Premier League goals as a substitute this season, scoring two and assisting three.

Wilfried Zaha, Cheikhou Kouyate and Ayew are all on international duty, whilst James Tomkins and James McArthur are both sidelined through injury.


DOUBLE GAMEWEEK 22 LINE-UPS

Brighton and Hove Albion XI: Sanchez, Veltman, Webster, Burn, Cucurella, Gross, Lallana, Moder, Mac Allister, Trossard, Maupay

Subs: Scherpen, Lamptey, Alzate, Welbeck, March, Caicedo, Roberts, Leonard, Ferguson

Crystal Palace XI: Butland, Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell, Hughes, Schlupp, Gallagher, Olise, Eze, Edouard

Subs: Guaita, Milivojevic, Mateta, Clyne, Benteke, Kelly, Ferguson, Riedewald, Rak-Saki

    7. Shark Team
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      King/Dennis but I believe Villa will double so probably Watkins unless Leeds double too so Raph gets into the convo

      1. Dammit_182
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 28 days ago

        I do like raph vs Newcastle anyway. I got the impression he might have to play international football though so e we told miss any double??

        But yea, Villa double all day long

        1. Shark Team
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Yeah that's a problem with Raph, he will have 3 and a half days rest between Brazil's last game and Leeds' possible DGW fixture on 5/2. With Bamford and Rodrigo back it remains to be seen though if he looks better or worse than before

          1. Dammit_182
            • 1 Year
            6 months, 28 days ago

            It’s what stops me getting a certain Villa mid too….Dan James for captain it is then…..

    8. Il Capitano
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 28 days ago

      On Foden C King VC at present, might change if that Villa DGW comes to fruition

    9. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

        • 1 Year
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Think he’s the guy.

    10. Snake Juice
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Martinelli (C)
      Foden (VC)

    11. Hairy Potter
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      King atm. Might depend on if I replace Mount. Coutinho could fun if Villa has a DGW.

    Salah most picked captain.... Is there that many dead rubber teams... Crikey

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      FPL has been extra brutal this season. Millions have given up

      1. POTATO
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Millions have multiple accounts or join for one week and play chips at the same time.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Iirc something like 50% of teams are dead

      1. SuperHooper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Its thise single week players too, trying to get highest game week score. Drives me nuts. They should only give a high game week score from those that play week in week out... 'Shaking fist'

  3. have you seen cyan
    • 3 Years

    Its unlikely, but I cant help but think the hacker is a user on this site and likes the attention.

    1. POTATO
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Where has the hack been reported?

    2. Rocket Raccoon
      • 12 Years

      Hack?

    3. SmallManFirminoooo

      Its Ragabolly having some fun.

      1. Ragabolly

        Don't spread rumors 😀

        1. FPL_Crisis
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Am I correct in reading the top10k average took a -12 this week?

          1. Sun Jihai
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            Check the points by chip:
            https://www.livefpl.net/top10k

            Teams with 'no chip' are on -2, so about -3 in hits on average assuming about 1 point scored tonight?

            1. FPL_Crisis
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              6 months, 28 days ago

              On main page it says live scores top10k:
              1.42(-13.45)=(-12.04)

              1. Sun Jihai
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                6 months, 28 days ago

                Yeah that's distorted by the number of hacked teams within the top 10k and sheer volume of transfers - in the chips table, players with TC (the hacked teams mostly) have a score of -3568. Then there are some other hacked teams within BB with an average score of -56. So 'no chip' is the best guide to the actual score.

                    It actually will be closer to 9M.. I just put a cap of 7M on LiveFPL to avoid overestimating.. I am so so sorry that this happened.. FPL replied to a user under a tweet of mine, please check that out https://twitter.com/officialfpl/status/1482095116928131078?s=21

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been diagnosed with heart lesions after recovering from Covid-19 at the Africa Cup of Nations. The Arsenal forward was ruled out of Gabon’s 1-1 draw against Ghana on Friday.

    The “cardiac lesions” were found in a check by Confederation of African Football (CAF) medical officials, the Gabonese FA said in a statement. Officials examined Aubameyang after he returned following a positive Covid test. Two of his Gabon teammates, forward Axel Meyé and midfielder Mario Lemina, who were both also found to have the same issue.

    Top football star Alphonso Davies, a Bayern Munich player has been diagnosed with Myocarditis.

    Fully vaccinated, had his booster in December.

    Recently isolated having tested for Rona but felt well at the time.

    Very rare though.

        You mean players who have had covid are getting negative effects from having covid?

          I think he's referring to the correlation between heart conditions/abnormalities/disease in athletes who have had Covid.

        No. Nothing to be done now. With NLD looking like it would be off he seemed better than Kane but now just hope he gets double figures off 120 mins

      Bought Lamptey in GW17. Points have been 2, 0, 6, 2, 1, 1.

      Suggestions for replacement?

          I have been looking at him, but he is yet to return from injury. Solid option though.

          Is replacing a 4.5 defender a priority? I'm jealous

          1. banskt
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            Both my 4.5 defenders are now suffering from gametime - Dalot and Lamptey. Replacing one of them is important because I cannot sell Rudiger: bought Rudiger at 5.6 and cannot buy him back once sold.

        Another lesson learnt..
        Stupidly paid attention to price rises and moved Gallagher out for Maddison for a hit.
        Maddison has to score 13 points to make it pay, in now only one game against tight spurs defence.
        I need to switch off until 2 hours before transfer deadline

        The truth is the ManUtd plays Vill away on Saturday,Brentford away on Wed and WestHam at home on Saturday.If we agree that the most difficult game is West Ham and after Villa game then an injured Ronaldo is logic to get a rest vs Brentford.

          Ronaldo barely even improves them

            Because the useless midfield don't pass the ball forward. Otherwise he would be scoring.

              His attempt at linkup play doesn’t help, nor his refusal to press 🙂

            Many accounts hacked tonight. Mine included.
            Mostly Top10k teams how it seems.

              This is why I stay out of the top 10k. Jokes aside, that sucks.

              Sorry about this mate. Sucks.
              Do you have a very strong password? Would be a good thing for us to know.
              All the best to you.

            Hopefully they’re shutting it down while they recover the hacked accounts

          It gets worse - now Arsenal are asking for a postponement of the North London derby. It seems to me that some clubs are clearly trying to game the Covid rules to cover injuries, suspensions and international absences.

              Bit difficult wading through hundreds of comments to check if something has already been discussed.

              1. Ron_Swanson
                • 12 Years
                6 months, 28 days ago

                It’s been discussed endlessly!

            I don't really see the problem or why people are surprised or why people are upset or offended by it.

            1. Don Van Vliet
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              It's making a mockery of the teams and the league. An affront to those with integrity and a moral compass.

              1. DeuloRad
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                6 months, 28 days ago

                My question is how is it doing those things? Why is it an affront to people with integrity and a moral compass?

                If you based postponements on a hard limit of covid cases, without making it relative to the squad in some way, I think there really would be chaos and injustice, more games postponed and forfeited at the whim of a virus.

                Just let the application process figure it out. It's far better than the alternative imo, unless you have a better idea. There's nothing morally wrong about wanting to play a fixture with your good players available, and so the competition itself has more integrity.

                I think there's a lot of outrage based on suspicion and not a lot of evidence or information about the situation(s).

            i don't like it, but the precedent has been set already with Leicester and others, so they will get the postponement, blame the PL for making their covid guidelines open to manipulation

            Kane’s captaincy is really low, presumably because of this news. Wouldn’t be surprised if it goes ahead and he scores a brace on home ground against weakened opposition

          Surely with these top 10k hacks etc there is the possibility that a hacked team could be reverted back to its original gw21 team and Continue scoring (saving a ft in the progress) ok the op for transfers, chips and the like has gone but it has to be better than the result of this? Game data will be saved and somewhere someone can bash some keyboards to make it better

          1. lugs
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            yeah a reverse hack chip, they should also limit transfers to 7 or 10 per gw unless on FH or WC

          PSA. If anyone is paranoid about account hacking. Install a password manager. It's no big deal. I use bitwarden. App & chrome extension
