Scout Notes

Budget FPL assets shine for Leeds and Fulham but Bielsa highlights lack of creativity

Leeds United 4-3 Fulham

  • Goals: Helder Costa (£5.5m) x2, Mateusz Klich (£5.5m), Patrick Bamford (£5.6m) | Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.0m) x2, Bobby Decordova-Reid (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Bamford x2, Klich | Joe Bryan (£5.0m), Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m), Kenny Tete (£4.5m)
  • Bonus: Mitrovic x3, Bamford x2, Costa x2

Patrick Bamford (£5.6m) rewarded his growing Fantasy following with a double-digit haul in Leeds United’s second seven-goal thriller of the week.

The forward’s goal in Gameweek 1’s 4-3 loss to Liverpool prompted nearly 365,000 managers to buy him in for the Fulham game.

Seasoned Fantasy Premier League (FPL) bosses, and many a Leeds fan, would have considered the move optimistic at best as Bamford has plenty of previous for missing his fair share of chances.

But the striker struck again on Saturday, finishing with aplomb when released by a Mateusz Klich (£5.5m) pass early in the second half of the win over Fulham.

His boss, Marcelo Bielsa, was quick to play down the side’s eye-catching start to the season:

This won’t be a constant all year. It is very difficult to maintain the efficiency we have had in these first two games. The characteristics of our game is to create goalscoring opportunities. In these two games we have created very little, but we have scored all our chances.

He might as well have been talking about Bamford, who has now scored from two of the three chances he has been presented with this season.

That has tempted another raft of managers to back the striker. He’s currently in the top three transfers-in for a Gameweek 3 trip to Sheffield United and a Yorkshire derby that should be, to use a technical term, proper tasty.

Whether his fine form is sustainable is highly debatable.

FPL has indulged plenty of fine early starters who failed to deliver consistently over a season – Norwich’s Teemu Pukki is the most recent example of that, while Manchester United striker Anthony Martial (£9.0m) is another who hit the Premier League ground running before being reduced to a stagger within a few weeks.

As we detailed in pre-season here, Bamford has never been the most clinical of strikers, missing 34 (77.3%) of the big chances he had in the Championship last season.

For now, however, it would be churlish not to bask in his point-scoring glory. He also had two assists against Fulham, earning a penalty when he was pushed in the back by Joe Bryan (£5.0m) and then setting up Helder Costa (£5.5m) on the break to make the scoreline 4-1 with barely ten minutes of the second half played.

Add on two bonus and the forward ended with 14 points on the day –  a total he shared with Costa as the midfielder opened the scoring when he picked up a loose ball from a corner and smashed it in off the bar with five minutes on the clock.

Costa also earned two bonus points and has now hauled in both matches for his 1.6% ownership.

But spare a thought for the 4.6% with Klich in their squads. He also scored in Gameweek 1 and was on the score sheet against the Cottagers when he rolled home the penalty Bamford had earned.

Such was the madness of the match, a goal and an assist were not enough to bring in any extra points for the Poland international. In fact, the maximum bonus award didn’t even go to a Leeds player at all.

That honour was reserved for visiting striker Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.0m), who marked his first start of the season with two goals and 12 points.

The Serbia international was a very popular pick heading into the season and the 20%-owned forward was quick to reward his followers when he blasted in a first-half penalty, awarded when Robin Koch (£4.5m) mistimed a slide tackle on Bryan.

He then headed in from a fine Kenny Tete (£4.5m) cross to make it 4-3 with just over 20 minutes left to play.

Fulham’s other goal was a sweet one, with the impressive Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m) playing a beautifully-weighted pass through to Bobby Decordova-Reid (£5.5m), who shot across Leeds keeper Illan Meslier (£4.5m) and into the far corner.

Both Meslier and his Fulham counterpart Alphonse Areola (£4.5m) were, unsurprisingly, busy boys on the day and the pair picked up a save point apiece for their efforts.

Two players who were rather less involved were Leeds playmaker Pablo Hernandez (£6.0m), who suffered a groin strain in the warm-up, and the club’s record signing, Rodrigo (£6.0m), who replaced him in the starting line-up.

The striker was peripheral at best playing as a number ten behind Bamford and he was hooked at half-time, although that was more an indication of his lack of match fitness as Bielsa, who has very high standards in that regard, was quick to point out post-match:

I was under the impression that he lacked a bit of energy to show his qualities. I think that has something to do with the physical effort he used against Hull (in the EFL Cup). That’s why I decided to sub him.

The coach also gave an update on Hernandez:

Pablo had a small knock in the warm-up. We don’t think it’s very serious.

Fulham boss Scott Parker had understandably mixed emotions about an away game in which his team had 55% of the possession and scored three goals, but still lost:

We showed some real quality in possession at times. We showed a real impetus and caused Leeds a lot of problems. On the flip side we gave away easy goals today and left ourselves a mountain to climb.

He also made it clear that he will chop and change his side this season:

The players who did not play today are vital and will play a vital part this year. As I showed last year I will make changes for matches that give us the best chance of winning.

Not that Fulham rotation will be a major concern for most Fantasy managers, with Mitrovic by far and away the most likely to be drafted in for a good schedule from now until late November.

As for Leeds, they currently have the dubious honour of being an even worse defensive unit than Fulham, having conceded seven goals to the Cottagers’ six.

But in Bamford, Costa and Klich, they have three in-form and very nicely priced assets who will surely find their way into many FPL teams over the next few weeks.

The Leeds rush might have to wait, however – after that derby in Sheffield, Bielsa’s men will host Manchester City in Gameweek 4.


Leeds United XI (4-4-2): Meslier; Dallas, Cooper, Koch, Ayling; Phillips, Harrison, Klich, Costa; Bamford (Alioski 70), Rodrigo (Roberts 45).

Fulham XI (4-2-3-1): Areola; Bryan, Hector, Odoi, Tete; Reed (Lemina 70′), Zambo Anguissa; Kamara (Kebano 58′), Onomah (Decordova-Reid 58′), Cavaleiro; Mitrović.

      Really like Castagne. See if you can free up some cash. Otherwise looks good.

  4. BigBillyBass
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Who are the 5 essentials to own from next week would people say?

    1. Rake
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      We can publish a list only after we see City play.

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      there aren't any. Hauls are spraying across multiple options with not much consistency after 2GW's lol

    3. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Possibly Salah if hauls against Arsenal, and apart from that really don't think there is anyone absolutely essential. So many good options to choose between though

  5. olly:)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Salah sat at 99.4 on fplstatistics, planned move is Auba > Salah but obviously I would rather wait than do it tonight, do you think it needs to be done? Suppose I could go Auba > Mane if I did miss the rise...

  6. JURGENAUT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Auba, Havertz, ASM > Sterling/KDB, Zaha, Hamez for -4

    Thoughts?

    1. olly:)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      wouldn't remove Havertz before next 2 fixt

      1. JURGENAUT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Even if I have Werner?

        Removing Havertz would accommodate ASM exit

    2. Rake
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I'm holding Havertz. The other two looks g2g.

      1. JURGENAUT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Even if I have Werner?

        Removing Havertz would accommodate ASM exit

        1. Rake
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Yes imo. West Brom seem to be the whipping boys and Kai did look bright the first 45. I'd hold.

  7. Emp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    why are people saying that havertz wont start vs wba?

    1. Rake
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      He will. No doubt.

    2. sinik
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Even if he does, he's acclimating to the league and the way Lampard leverages him needs to change for him to become a really good FPL asset.

    3. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Would it be better if he was a sub?

    4. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Lampard will surely want to give him as much game time as he needs to settle in and find his best position given the money spent on him. Expecting a goal against West Brom so keeping

  8. Belli2007
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Auba > KDB/Raz gives me 0.5m so can upgrade elsewhere, options are

    a) Adams > Wood (burnley quite good fixtures and was ok against Leicester - scored 1 and hit post) and avoids Adams drop tonight
    b) Adams > Bamford (gives me another .4 but fixtures not great, avoids Adams drop and picks up Bamford rise)
    c) Havertz > Son/Hamez (am tempted to keep Havertz against baggies as didn't really chance today and was subbed off due to red card)

    would be -4 hit but can live with that

    1. Rake
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      None of them seem worth the hit. Can you take the Adams drop? West Brom soon. The closest one is Bamford. You can also look at Mitro (good form and fix) or Maupay (good form meh fix)

      1. Belli2007
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Can only take Adams drop if I don't go for a 6.5 forward...

        Not convinced by Mitro but will no doubt prove me wrong, Brighton looked quite good today though so Maupay is an option I had forgot about

        1. Rake
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Then again 6.5 pool is pretty dry. I can only think of Wood and Wilson as real options.

  9. Rondon9
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    -8 or activate WC?

    1. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      -8

  10. JURGENAUT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Who should score more between Barnes & Hamez over the next few GWs?

  11. Littlefish92

    If you have Bruno would you do son for free ?

  12. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Asked this a couple of times but still not sure!

    Is Adams to Jimenez for a hit worth it?

    1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years

      Give it 24 hours.

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Would be priced out :/

        1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Oh, going through the hot topic, Adams sounds unlucky.
          Burnley just leaked 4.

          1. Pep Roulette
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Yes that's right! Burnley & West Brom next! I think I might keep! Cheers TM!

    2. Rake
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Could go either way. Adams nPxG looking good. Can you wait a week?

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Do you think he starts against Burnley?

        1. Rake
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          He should.

          1. Pep Roulette
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Cheers mate! I think I'll keep him instead of taking a hit! Also have Podence as Wolves cover!

            1. Rake
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Really like Podence. One on my watchlist for sure!

              1. Pep Roulette
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 14 days ago

                Let's hope he does good!

    3. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Isn't Jimenez worth like ~2.5mil more than Adams?
      If he's in your squad for anything more than 3 game weeks then I'd personally take the hit.

  13. arndff_

    Soucek @ -95.9 in fplstats. Will he drop TONIGHT?

    1. Rake

    Hi everyone.

    Ramsdale Steer
    TAA KWP Coleman Justin Taylor
    Aubameyang Son Havertz ASM Bissouma
    DCL Martial Werner

    1FT

    A. Aubameyang to Salah
    B. Aubameyang to KDB/Sterling

    Thoughts?

    1. Dthinger
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Ramsdale looks poor.

      But you should probably deal with Bissouma, who will be suspended, and ASM before worrying about Auba

      1. F_Ivanovic
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Why does Bissouma matter? He's a 4.5m that is bench fodder anyway

        1. golden skulltula 69
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          This

      2. golden skulltula 69
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Bissouma is bench fodder. Auba will have tough fixtures and I'm looking to bring Salah or KDB/Sterling in.

  16. JURGENAUT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 14 days ago

    James Rodriguez is on set pieces right?

    1. Dthinger
      • 3 Years

      Some but Digne still takes some too

      Might need some forwards.

      1. Dthinger
        • 3 Years

        Has Brewster! Do they need more than that?

          One needs to start.

  18. The Big Fella
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    After an amazing GW this week I now want to use one of my two FTs. Like most people I want to get rid of ASM and bring in another player who will play most weeks. Podence, Costa (Leeds) and Soucek are my three options. Which of these three would you go for and why? I am only really tempted by Soucek as I will also get 0.5ITB too if I am honest but people do seem to think he is a good standalone option. What are other people doing and why?

    1. panda07
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Klich is a good option too. I'm leaning towards Podence though depending on how he performs tomorrow night.

      1. The Big Fella
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I agree but his price rose and I don't have any money in the bank though so he isn't an option for me :'(

  19. JURGENAUT

    Hamez

    WC Team:

    Pickford
    Alexander-Arnold / Digne / Justin / Lamptey
    Salah / De Bruyne / Bruno Fernandes / Son
    Calvert-Lewin/ Bamford

    Nyland / Mitchell / Alzate / Brewster

    1. BigBillyBass

      Bench is abhorrent

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Nope. All of them can get a few points. Not abhorrent at all!

    2. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I'd get a Wolves defender instead of Digne

      Like the look of this Under kid for Leicester, hopefully cheaper than Barnes and better value.

      Like Barnes as a player but just decision-making/finishing needs to improve a bit to be the finished article.

        Last season Barnes got more G+A in the league than Under ever did at Roma... Under has potential but it would take a big personal improvement for him to be a better option than Barnes, who is constantly improving.

      New season same old story. Watching a player playing and creating chances and trying to score for the sake of enjoying football is oneel thing, but remembering that you own him in your FPL team affects this enjoyment badly!!
      Kudos to those who managed to stop playing FPL even for 1 season
      (I won't stop though 😀 )

        Auba > KDB or Soucek > Podence/Leeds

      Is Pope a good option this season? Or too expensive?

        Unless he is saving penalties, no if conceding 4.

      2. All about the galacticos

        too expensive, try your luck with a 4.5

        Probably a bit pricey but pretty set on going with him...Dyche always gets Burnley on a solid run of form and Pope is great for save points and bonus when that happens

    • TEKKERS FC

      Who would you rather?
      A) Auby and Klich
      B) Son and Pulisic

      1. luk46
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        probably B, but keep in mind Son doesnt play such a high line every week and Pulisic isnt fit yet

        1. TEKKERS FC
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Fair call. This would be when Chrisitan is fit of course.

            ye, should outscore A long term

      I will take a hit for Auba to Sterling later in week so how does this look after using 2FT
      I will have 1.7 to get the defence upgraded over the next week or 2 And maybe get Brewster for Davis.

      Ryan

      TAA Taylor KWP

      Salah Auba Rodríguez Barnes Podence

      Werner DCL

      Steer Lascelles Mitchell Davis

    • Infected by ebolasie
      • 4 Years

      Are we expecting Podence to get minutes once Semedo comes in? Traore would get pushed into the front 3 again and hence Neto and Podence would be fighting for the LW position

      1. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        He seemed to be the preferred choice over Neto based on minutes end of last season but higher risk on minutes for sure if Semedo comes.

      Best rotating keeper options right now?

        Ryan / Martinez looks good

        I hate the idea of it tbh as there are often surprise GK hauls and I'd hate it to be the one that I've benched...set and forget for me 😉

      Wood or James Rodriguez on WC?

      I have DCL and while I consider Rodriguez a better option long term, Wood’s next 3 are great fixtures on paper and he tends to score against the weaker teams. Rodriguez price rise is a concern though. Any ideas?

        Can't you have both on WC then decide?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I got both for now so have a week to decide on it. Just trying to make an early decision and get it out of the way 🙂
