Glenn Murray celebrates one of his two strikes against Fulham.

Brighton & Hove Albion’s 2-2 draw with Fulham on Saturday produced plenty of Fantasy Premier League talking points, including big tallies for two Brighton players as we head into the first international break of the season.

Gameweek Review

It was a battling display from the Seagulls to fight back from two goals down, and the combination of the two goals Chris Hughton’s side scored and the final result ensured plenty of points for some of Albion's stars.

The Albion back four all scored one point due to the two goals Albion conceded, as well as central midfield pair Davy Propper (£5.0m) and Dale Stephens (£4.5m) who lost a point due to receiving a yellow card.

Goalkeeper Mathew Ryan (£4.5m) scored two points - his three saves rewarding him with an extra point. Unfortunately for Pascal Gross, his penalty miss saw him take a -2 hit and finish the match with -1 points.

The two big Albion scorers were Anthony Knockaert (£5.5m) and Glenn Murray (£6.5m). Murray produced a total of 12 points thanks to his second-half brace and three bonus points, while Knockaert’s assist for Murray’s first goal and single bonus point meant the French winger reached 6 points.

The duo are now also the highest point scorers out of all the Brighton players so far this season, with Murray in first on 21, followed by Knockaert who has 15.

Looking Ahead

Next up for Hughton’s team is a Monday night trip to St Mary’s Stadium to face Southampton. The Saints claimed a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace on Saturday, so it could well prove to be a well-matched encounter.

Murray now has three goals for the season, and having scored in this fixture last campaign, the 34-year-old could be a great option for one of your three strikers, especially at £6.5m.

After producing his second assist of the season, Knockaert could be a good differential pick, with his ownership currently at 0.6%.

His fellow winger Solly March (£5.0m) took four shots against the Cottagers, and will be hopeful of scoring his first of the season against the Saints.

Brighton Fan League

Dan Payne maintains his lead at the top of the Brighton FPL Fan League, with his team ‘Groß Misconduct’ managing a total of 48 points from gameweek four.

Assists from Andrew Robertson, Benjamin Mendy and his captain Sergio Aguero, as well as goals from Sadio Mane and Aleksandar Mitrovic, helped Dan keep hold of top spot.

Kevin Sommerville’s 68-point gameweek has moved him into second place – his total score of 319 points just three behind Dan’s 322. Third position belongs to Jon Clays on 317 points.
