FPL experts: Best Brighton players to own

The Scout’s panel of experts discuss who to pick from Brighton & Hove Albion, who have Double Gameweeks 29 and 34 in Fantasy Premier League, plus the possibility of two more Doubles being scheduled at a later date.

Brighton are the perfect investment for FPL managers. Excellent form, Doubles in Gameweeks 29 and 34, and a further two fixtures still to be rescheduled. The midfielder double-up of two from Solly March (£5.1m), Kaoru Mitoma (£5.5m) and Alexis Mac Allister (£5.5m) seems wise.

Then either Jason Steele (£3.9m) or Pervis Estupinan (£4.8m) for the triple-up.

If we had more than five midfield spots, there would be a strong argument to go triple Brighton midfield because March, Mitoma and Mac Allister would be a dangerous trio.

But knowing there are so many other midfielders we want, I think it’s sensible owning two, plus Estupinan, who is the standout option at the back.

Brighton have a great Double in Gameweek 29, but the fixtures over the next few weeks are quite difficult, so tripling-up in attack is not ideal as you can’t really bench two.

Keeping that in mind, I like Estupinan as he can be benched in the tougher fixtures. Mitoma has returned in eight of the last 10 matches, so he would be my top pick. The third one is between Mac Allister and March, but I’ll go with the latter since the Argentinian’s position can change to a deeper role at any moment.

Mac Allister and Mitoma are in my team, and I’m very happy to have them. Trebling on the Brighton attack strangely with March doesn’t feel overkill – although that’s a lot of Seagull-shaped eggs in one basket!

Estupinan would be my pick in defence, but keep an eye on a possible late arrival back from international duty. It’ll be a quick turnaround for him to be ready for the Brentford match.

It’s very close between all the Brighton options, but my preferred three are Mitoma, March and Estupinan.
