Consider which Brighton and Hove Albion players could be suitable for your FPL team this season.

As well as budget choices, our scout is investigating all possible selections from each squad in the 2020-21 Fantasy Premier League.

Brighton FPL players

Wouldn’t expect a huge number of clean sheets from Mathew Ryan, but he’s an attractive £4.5m option on account of his deputy.

David Button is just £4m, meaning you can have him on your bench ready to step in should Ryan ever pick up an injury or suspension.

You could splash out £5.5m for a ‘keeper who might get you between 10 and 40 more points over the course of a season – someone like Nick Pope.

But with so many great outfield options in the game this year, those funds could be better used elsewhere.

Southampton’s Alex McCarthy is arguably a better £4.5m ‘keeper, but doesn’t come with the added safety feature of a £4m substitute from the same club.

🥅 Goalkeepers

Vicente Guaita is reasonably priced at £5m, but for that money we’d prefer Aaron Ramsdale or Jordan Pickford.

👬 Defenders

£5m Lewis Dunk poses a goal-scoring threat from set pieces, but you can get similar from Adam Webster for £4.5m.

They each scored three times in last season’s Premier League, a respectable return for a centre-back.

Young Tariq Lamptey is an interesting prospect at £4.5m, an attacking right-back seemingly with good potential for attacking returns.

🏃 Midfielders

Leandro Trossard could blossom into a bargain at £6m having seemingly started to find his footing towards the end of the last campaign.

At the same price, Pascal Groß would be worthwhile if he could recapture the 2017-18 form that got him 164 points.

However, there are better option than those two in and around that price range.

For example, £0.5m gets you Phil Foden, while £0.5m less and you can have Stuart Armstrong or Allan Saint-Maximin.

🥳 Forwards

Neal Maupay‘s 10 goals last season is not to be sniffed at, but for £6.5m he feels a little overpriced.
