28 February 2019

Brighton & Hove Albion were beaten 2-1 by Leicester City on Tuesday night, but the game did see a first Albion goal and big FPL point total for one individual.

Gameweek Review

After not having a fixture in Gameweek 27, the Seagulls returned to action at the King Power Stadium, and after enjoying strong spells in the game, Chris Hughton's side will be frustrated to have departed empty-handed.

It was a majority of one and two-point scores for the Albion players, with only Davy Propper (£4.8m) ending up with a reasonable tally thanks to his goal. With three bonus points and his first goal for the club, the Dutchman received ten points overall.

Propper also leapfrogs Anthony Knockaert to move up to joint-sixth in the race to be the highest point-scoring Albion player.

Looking Ahead

Hughton’s side don’t have to wait long for an attempt to return to winning ways, with Huddersfield Town the visitors to the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Terriers picked up their first victory since Gameweek 13 with a midweek win over Wolves, but that was only their second clean sheet in 15 matches, so Albion should have faith in finding the back of the net.

A home match means Glenn Murray (£6.3m) will likely threaten the scoresheet, while three attempts at goal against the Foxes signalled Shane Duffy’s desire to remain an outlet for goals.

The return of Jose Izquierdo (£5.9m) and Florin Andone (£5.0m) from injury and suspension respectively also gives the Seagulls options in attack.

Brighton Fan League

A well-thought-out double transfer helped David Williams and his team ‘Montreal Albion’ maintain top spot in the Brighton Fan League.

Williams transferred in James Maddison and Jamie Vardy, who both delivered along with captain Sergio Aguero and Trent Alexander-Arnold as he reached 66 points overall.

Ulan Apsatar remains in second place, while an impressive 70 points see Gary Durkan rise to third.
