Brighton & Hove Albion’s three-match winning run came to an end on Saturday, as they were defeated 3-1 by Everton at Goodison Park. The result meant that FPL points were few and far between for the Seagulls.

Gameweek Review

It was always going to be a tough fixture given the Toffees' record at home, and despite looking like getting something from the match at half-time, Albion suffered defeat because of two goals after the break from the hosts.

Unfortunately, it was mainly one and two-point tallies for the Brighton players, with even the likes of Maty Ryan (£4.5m) unable to obtain at least a save point for the first time since gameweek five.

Two Albion players did manage to bag some extra points though, with the pair that combined for the Seagulls’ goal, Solly March (£5.0m) and Lewis Dunk (£4.4m), both scoring six points.

In addition to his second assist of the season, March received a bonus point for his efforts and became the fourth highest FPL point-scorer for Chris Hughton’s side this campaign.

Looking Ahead

Next up for Albion as they look to return to winning ways is a trip to face Cardiff City, and the signs are positive for some big FPL points.

The Bluebirds have conceded in each of their previous five home matches, conceding 13 in those games, and have claimed victory just once all season.

As a result, Brighton attackers are good bets, and with centre-back Bruno Ecuele Manga currently filling in at right-back for Cardiff, Jose Izquierdo (£5.9m) could be an outlet for points.

Off the back of his assist and given he is now playing more centrally, March could also be one to keep an eye on.

Brighton Fan League

There is yet another new leader in the Brighton Fan League, with Atte Kinnunen and his team ‘Tractor Boys’ now in first.

Atte used his Free Hit chip to good effect as his registered 90 points this gameweek, with big totals from Marko Arnautovic, Sergio Aguero and captain Raheem Sterling.

Nemanja Dragic remains in second, while last week’s leader Simeon Sulc drops to third.
