Glenn Murray heads Albion in front against Leicester City.

Brighton & Hove Albion were made to settle for a point against 10-man Leicester City on Saturday afternoon, and there was a familiar face scoring the FPL points for the Seagulls.

Gameweek Review

It was looking promising for Chris Hughton’s side until Jamie Vardy netted an equaliser for the visitors from the penalty spot. The goal denied the Seagulls’ defence clean sheet points and Maty Ryan (£4.6m) was unable to produce a save point for only the fourth time this season.

Lewis Dunk (£4.5m) was given a bonus point and has now received extra points on top of his appearance points for six consecutive gameweeks.

It has been a frequent occurrence this campaign, and Glenn Murray (£6.7m) was on hand yet again to score for Albion at the Amex. Two additional bonus points saw the striker finish on eight points, while Anthony Knockaert (£5.5m), who assisted Murray’s goal, racked up six points.

Murray remains the highest-scoring Brighton player this season, extending his lead to nine points over Ryan.

Looking Ahead

Next up for Albion is a trip to the John Smith's Stadium to face Huddersfield Town, who go into the match on the back of a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Terriers have only managed to score two goals and keep two clean sheets at home all season, but David Wagner’s side have picked up some positive results of late.

Dunk’s form makes him an attractive option if you are looking for a reasonably-priced defender, while it could be time to jump back on Knockaert after his fourth assist of the season.

The return of Pascal Gross (£6.7m) from injury may also interest a few.

Brighton Fan League

It was a fairly low-scoring gameweek overall, but Atte Kinnunen and his team ‘Tractor Boys’ remain at the top of the Brighton Fan League.

Atte registered 43 points over the weekend, with the Liverpool trio of Alisson, Andy Robertson and captain Mohamed Salah being the biggest contributors.

His lead at the top has been cut though, with Nemanja Dragic now 12 points behind, while Mark Simmons is in third place.
