Managers in Fantasy Premier League who brought in a Brighton & Hove Albion player for Double Gameweek 27 had a rollercoaster afternoon in the Seagulls' 2-2 draw against Leeds United.

There were four Brighton stars among the seven most-bought players ahead of Saturday's deadline, and the quartet's mixed fortunes have caused big swings in mini-leagues.

DGW27 most transferred-in players
Player Transferred in by ('000s) Pts
Toney 910 2
Mitoma 897 6
Estupinan 549 1
Mac Allister 437 7
Mee 394 2
Salah 330 0
March 329 2

More than 897,000 managers were rewarded for recruiting Kaoru Mitoma (£5.5m) as he supplied an assist and earned a bonus point for a six-point total. 

The 437,000+ who opted for Alexis Mac Allister (£5.5m) had even more reason to celebrate as the Argentinian scored from Mitoma's assist to collect seven points.

But there was frustration for the 329,000+ who moved for Solly March (£5.1m) as he blanked, narrowly missing out on a goal as he failed to get a touch on a loose ball in the goalmouth for Brighton's second with Leeds' Jack Harrison (£5.7m) being credited with an own goal instead.

Meanwhile, those who invested in Brighton's defence by recruiting left-back Pervis Estupinan (£4.8m) were also disappointed as he ended up with a single point.

The quartet can add to their tallies when Brighton host Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

It was also a frustrating day for the 910,000+ managers who brought in Ivan Toney (£7.8m), making him the most-bought player, as he blanked in Brentford's 1-0 loss at Everton.

His owners will be looking forward to his midweek trip to Southampton, who have kept just three clean sheets this season, the fewest in the Premier League.

Bench Boost chips used in 2022/23
Gameweek Total played
27 170,819
1 170,273
23 156,132

With four teams playing twice in this round of fixtures, nearly 171,000 managers have used their Bench Boost chip, the most this season.

In addition to Brighton and Brentford, Southampton and Palace also have two matches.

However, 76 per cent of managers are yet to use their Bench Boost chip. They could be saving it for Double Gameweek 29, when 12 teams play twice. It is likely to be the biggest Double Gameweek in 2022/23.
