Brighton & Hove Albion picked up a much-needed 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town on Saturday, and the result ensured there were plenty of FPL points to share for the Seagulls.
Albion’s second clean sheet in three matches at the Amex saw clean sheet points for all their midfielders and defenders.
Lewis Dunk (£4.4m) and Shane Duffy (£4.7m) received bonus points to finish on seven and nine respectively, while Mathew Ryan (£4.4m) claimed two bonus points and a save point to also reach a tally of nine points.
Anthony Knockaert (£5.2m) produced his sixth assist of the season as he set up Florin Andone (£5.0m) for Albion’s winner. Knockaert’s six points puts him joint-sixth in the Seagulls’ highest FPL scorers this season, while Duffy leapfrogs Glenn Murray (£6.3m) into top spot.
Next up for Chris Hughton’s side is a trip to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace in next Saturday’s early kick-off.
The Eagles go into the match having won 3-1 against Burnley in their last outing but have only kept one clean sheet in their last eight games. Andone could be rewarded for his match-winning goal with a start, and if so, might be an option for a budget striker spot in FPL squads.
Duffy often features in this section as a player to look out for, and now really is a good time to transfer in the defender.
Brighton Fan League
Just as the Premier League title race saw a change in places over the weekend, the Brighton Fan League has also seen such an occurrence as Ulan Apsatar and his team ‘Fenerbahce’ regained pole position.
Ulan’s gameweek score of 62 points was thanks to a handful of clean sheets and helpful attacking returns from Eden Hazard, Diogo Jota and Troy Deeney.
David Williams moves down to second place for now, while Gary Durkan remains in third.
