Solly March in action against Burnley at Turf Moor.

Brighton & Hove Albion slipped to a 1-0 defeat against Burnley on Saturday, and the loss resulted in a shortage of FPL points for the club's players.

Gameweek Review

The combination of the Seagulls failing to keep a clean sheet and not scoring a goal meant it was mainly two-point scores for Chris Hughton’s players, and one point for the trio of substitutes.

The only Brighton player to receive more than two points was Mathew Ryan (£4.6m), with the Australian claiming a save point in back-to-back matches. Ryan moves back up to second place in the highest Albion point-scorers for the season.

Looking Ahead

The challenges only get tougher over the next few weeks for the Seagulls, with Chelsea visiting the Amex Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Blues go into the encounter on the back of ending Manchester City’s unbeaten start to the season.

The Seagulls usually pose a threat when playing at home though, and FPL mangers looking to use an Albion striker will have to predict who Hughton goes with on the south - either Glenn Murray (£6.6m), Florin Andone (£5.0m) or perhaps Jurgen Locadia (£5.3m).

Given the run of upcoming fixtures, having Ryan as one of your goalkeeping options could be wise when taking save points into account.

Brighton Fan League

Another gameweek passes, but Atte Kinnunen and his team ‘Tractor Boys’ remain in first place in the Brighton Fan League.

Atte’s 76 points in Gameweek 16 came from helpful contributions in defence, as well as goals from Felipe Anderson, Richarlison and a hat-trick from Mohamed Salah.

There has been a change in second place though, with Peter Carey now occupying second spot. The previous placeholder, Nemanja Dragic, has dropped down to fourth.
