Brighton & Hove Albion came from behind to return to winning ways against Huddersfield Town on Saturday, and the result saw another goal for an Albion defender and a big FPL point return for a certain midfielder.

Gameweek Review

Despite an early setback, the Seagulls fought back to claim a 2-1 victory over the Terriers, who were reduced to ten men in the opening half.

It was a low-scoring week for most Albion players, though three individuals did manage to produce at least seven points. One of which was Florin Andone (£5.0m), whose second-half winner was his first goal for the club and helped him receive a bonus point.

Lewis Dunk has been in the goals recently, but it was his defensive partner Shane Duffy (£4.7m) who headed home Albion’s equaliser. The pair have netted five goals between them this season, and Duffy finished on ten points thanks to two extra bonus points.

The Albion player that finished with the highest score this gameweek was Solly March (£5.0m) on 11 points. He assisted both goals and as a result acquired three bonus points, and now has four assists in his last four matches.

Duffy is now right behind Glenn Murray (£6.7m) in his attempts to become the top point-scorer for the Seagulls this season.

Looking Ahead

Chris Hughton’s side don’t have to wait long in their bid to make it consecutive wins. Tuesday evening sees Albion host Crystal Palace at the Amex Stadium, and by now FPL players know Murray is the one to watch on home turf — six goals in six appearances at the Amex this campaign speaks for itself.

March has claimed the most assists for Albion and seems to be the leading candidate for points attacking points behind Murray.

Either of Dunk or Duffy could also be a good pick as the pair are chipping in with goals and bonus points even when their side don’t keep clean sheets.

Brighton Fan League

It’s extremely tight at the top of the Brighton Fan League, but that still hasn’t stopped Atte Kinnunen and his team ‘Tractor Boys’ from extending his lead in first.

Defence was the best form of attack for Atte, with Alisson and three of his five defenders keeping clean sheets. Further forward Eden Hazard and Marko Arnautovic also chipped in with assists.

Nemanja Dragic remains in second place, and just seven points separate the six players beneath him.
