ALBION FANTASY UPDATE: GAMEWEEK 30

12 March 2019

Anthony Knockaert gets mobbed by his team-mates after his winning goal at Selhurst Park.

A pair of exquisite finishes helped Brighton & Hove Albion claim a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday, and there were plenty of FPL points on offer for a handful of players.

Gameweek Review

It was another vital win for the Seagulls, and there were four players who racked up at least five points. Glenn Murray (£6.3m) scored his 11th Premier League goal of the season to give his side the lead, and, like Lewis Dunk (£4.4m) who assisted the goal, finished on five points.

The combination for Albion’s winning strike saw Dale Stephens (£4.3m) produce his first assist of the campaign to set up Anthony Knockaert (£5.2m), who curled in a superb effort. The pair both received bonus points, two and one respectively, to end up with a total of seven points.

Murray became the first Albion player to reach 100 points this term, though Shane Duffy (£4.7m) is right behind him on 99.

Looking Ahead

Albion's fixture against Millwall in the Emirates FA Cup next weekend means that Albion don’t feature in Gameweek 31. However, their two Premier League games yet to be rescheduled could potentially mean two double gameweeks.

The Seagulls next return to league action when they entertain Southampton at the Amex Stadium. The Saints beat Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, but have kept just one clean sheet in their last nine games.

Knockaert and Murray have produced the most goal contributions out of Albion’s players in recent weeks, and the ability of Dunk and Duffy to come up with goals and assists means they will always be attractive differential options.

Given the wait between games though, it would be wise to wait until after the encounter with Millwall before making transfers.

Brighton Fan League

It was a fairly high-scoring gameweek, but Ulan Apsatar and his team ‘Fenerbahce’ remain in pole position in the Brighton Fan League.

Assists from the likes of Harvey Barnes and Mohamed Salah were useful, but 42 points from captain Raheem Sterling was the main contribution to Ulan’s 73 points.

David Williams remains hot on the heels of the leader in second place, while an impressive 88-point return sees Dino Papadopoulos rise to third.
