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.

    Fanteam players. Is anyone aware of a price predictions site like fplstatistics or at least a log of daily price changes?

    Thanks!

      There are some strange people in the world

      This team is clearly in a lowest-score-wins league. Pick a team at the beginning of the season. No transfers. Lowest points at the end of the season wins. No idea why people think this is interesting, but I know it exists.

    3. lugs
      • 3 Years

      it looks like he's trolling his work league or something

    4. Stupendous

      He's in my ML! mad!

    5. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year

      He was told by a mate that red flags meant that the player was dangerous...

  2. Linca - TerribleFromKepa
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Hey fellas. Haven't played FPL for over 5 years! Anyways here's my rushed team I put together 30 mins before kickoff rd1..

    McCarthy Nyland
    TAA, Mitchell, Tieney(Bernard,Douglas)

    Salah, Auba, James, ASM(stephenz)

    Ings, Mitro, Werner

    0.9 in bank. Thoughts on using a WC to fix alot of issues? No bench playing at all so can't rotate defence. Tierney injured, ASM injured and need some man City...

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Tierney, Auba and Maximin to Saiss, Kevin/Sterling and Zaha?

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

        This

    2. BenDavies
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Normally I'd say just sell Auba for KDB and not wildcard tbh but your backline is shockingly bad and you don't have any midfield cover so this is a classic wildcard case.

  3. The Man Pastore
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    What would you do with this team. Hated it after GW1 and quite like it now!
    I guess Adams is the weakest link here but not sure what to do, especially after the drop...

    Ramsdale
    TAA Justin Taylor
    Auba Mane Pereira Barnes
    Werner Martial Adams

    Bench: Steer Bissouma KWP Ferguson

    1FT /0.0ITB

      Decent team, Auba out for a City player perhaps.

      1. The Man Pastore
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Yeah, that's probably the best move this GW. Will see how Man C plays tonight, I will probably go with Sterling.

  4. Sz21
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Which of these 2 would you back moving forward from now?
    1. Salah.
    2. KDB.
    3. Sterling. (Seems to do much better without Aguero).

    1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Depends on today.

      Is trossard worth the extra 0.5?

      1. Holmes

        Yes

      G2G? Already took a hit
      McCarthy (Steer)

      Salah KDB Hamez (Bissouma)(Reed)

        I would wildcard tbf

        1. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Hahah why the heck would he WC that?

          1. Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Or she. Or neither!

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

        Team is good to go.

    • Lukaku_time
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 14 days ago

      What would you change with this team?

      Pickford macey

      Vvd justin mitchell ayling saiss

      Salah sterling jrod podence greenwood

      Werner brewster jiminez

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

        Thinking of shipping out greenwood but to who and how?

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

        van de beek?

    • Ayew Holding Mee Cork
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Thoughts on this wc team?

      Martinez (Macey)
      Saiss, Lamptey, Taylor (Mitchell, Justin)
      Salah, KDB, Son, Zaha (4.5)
      Jimenez, DCL, Werner

      Defence is a bit sketchy I know. Another approach would be going Salah-less till GW8 so I can have players like TAA, Digne and Castagne.

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

        Stick to what you think is best but dont go salahless, also i would rather sterling over kdb , but you could monitor that today

      1) Wilson>Kane (Got Son)
      2) Wilson>Jimenez [Save 2M]
      3) Wilson>Jesus [Save 1M]

        WCed almost a similar team.

        1. davies
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          What are you changing to?

    • Reyson
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      everyone is bringing in DCL. but vs crystal next not that easy game?

      1. BenDavies
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        True, and it's at Selhurst. Could be a very cagey match. Can see a 1-0/1-1.

      2. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        People are playing the money game and bringing in hot prospects gains money.

        In the case of DCL it also brings goals and points.

        They can score against anyone the way they are looking and the amount of goals flying in this new season.

        Palace or anyone, if you AREN'T bringing in DCL (or at least Richarlison) then I wonder what you're playing at.

        1. Reyson
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          lol lots of other choices. i dont think is a must to have dcl.

    • Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Can anyone explain how Rodriguez hasn't risen in price yet?

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Maybe non-WCers are not getting him

      2. Apwilkin

        I want to know as well

      3. BenDavies
        • 7 Years

        non wc'ers only getting dcl for everton cover?

          • 6 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          He has had 500K+ transfers in the last two weeks can't be all the WCers

                8 to 10 days of transfers not counting.

                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 14 days ago

                  Saliba dropped after two days, Gabriel rose in price, etc

                • 7 Years
                2 months, 14 days ago

                I guess those newer to FPL are more likely to wildcard quicker than others and hop on bandwagons

    • Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      God this looks nice..

      Son Rodriguez Thiago Sterling

      Real life and FPL.

      Think Thiago starts soon enough and 6m is a steal

      1. BenDavies
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I was very surprised with how attacking Thiago looked yesterday. He's definitely on my radar but for now still wary of him being the assister of the assister. Will wait for game against Arsenal before I make a decision on him.

        1. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          They'll wipe the floor with Arsenal

          Utterly crap Arsenal are

          1. Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Stealing a living first two weeks

          2. BenDavies
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            I agree but will be interesting to see how involved Thiago is in terms of FPL returns.

    • Boberella
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      What a shocking start this year.
      Icing on the cake was doing Mane to Bruno last week and Leicester scoring 4 goals without Vardy involved in any of them.

      Should I WC this? Got 4 non players and not happy with at least 3 more.

      McCarthy (Nyland)
      TAA Egan Taylor Mitchell (Vinagre)
      KDB Bruno JamesRod, Havertz (Bissouma)
      Vardy Ings (Davis)

      On a -4 already from doing Auba + ASM > KDB + JamesRod

        I would stick for now. Team is good enough for next week. No need for a WC

        1. Boberella
          • 4 Years

          Thanks. May just stick it out and re-assess after next week.

      Any one looking at Jesus? I hope CIty light the game up tonight and send all us redoing our WC again

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Looking at Jesus to save my season, yes.

      2. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Kane to Jesus was under consideration but probably won't do now

    • fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      McCarthy
      TAA Egan Davies Justin
      Salah Aubameyang Son ASM
      Werner Ings

      Button Bissouma Mitchell Brewster

      0.0 itb, 2FT

      Will likely do Aubameyang >> KDB / Sterling...

      How to use other FT??

      Thanks.

        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Has to be ASM out, given he's injured?
        Or McCarthy out as he is rubbish (Owner here)
        Bissouma suspended also.

          CAB in that order for me

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

          Thanks guys,

          I'm leaning towards A due to Reguilion coming. Bavies spot uncertain....

      • Urchin
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Hu DZ, this is me.
        Have 2 FT and 1 ITB
        McCarthy (4.0)
        TAA Justin Davies Bellerin Mitchell
        Salah Auba James Klich Bissouma
        Kane Wilson Mitrovic

        I am doing auba to kdb. And had planned kane to werner as well. But kane at home to Newcastle has changed my mind.
        So
        A. Wilson to DCL
        B. Fix Bissouma

        1. Boberella
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Probably A

      • Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Looking at Sterling vs KdB on WC, fixtures look ideal for Sterling to haul in the away matches as opposed to KdB in the home matches. Tough decision this, KdB with all the set pieces and penalty is difficult to ignore too.

          Ditch the Bitches! Serious.

            City haven't played their first game yet

              • 3 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Without the Silva they become the same old chuff that we are spooning over.

              It's all fruiting Muppets now FFS!

            Are you on medication??

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

          Tough choice. I'd try and have both on WC.
          If only 1, then KDB for the consistency.

        3. BenDavies
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I'm tempted to go Sterling purely for his ownership but as you said KDB on set pieces and pens guaranteed now is too hard to ignore. As I've had a good start I don't mind playing it a bit safer.

      • Live Lad
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Auba to Son or Sterling/ KDB?
        Have Kane.

        1. BenDavies
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          KDB

          1. Boberella
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

      • fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Wow Spurs have got 3 games this next week... do we think Davies plays v NEW ??

        1. BenDavies
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Reguilon wasn't bought for a laugh so I can definitely see him starting against Newcastle with Davies playing during the week. Anyone owning Davies surely has to get rid ASAP purely due to the uncertainty now.

          1. fcsaltyballs
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            From the man himself...

            I’m doing Aub >> KDB

            Then other transfer is to sort either ASM or Davies

            Will probably wait to see lineups during the week for any clues

            1. BenDavies
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Auba to KDB is the priority transfer so you can probably wait another week to sort out Davies, as I'm not fond of hits including defenders.

              1. fcsaltyballs
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 14 days ago

                I have 2FT...

          People not realizing this before bringing in Spurs assets.

      • Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Why do people on a WC pick Martinez over Ryan?

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

          Because they think he will score more points

          1. Cruyff's Eleven
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Hahaha....

            Fair enough, I asked.

            Any reason why the AVL GK would outscore the BHA GK?

              Lockdown etc. Even Chelsea scored 3 vs Brighton playing terribly

            2. BenDavies
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              People like shiny new things and Martinez impressed for a top 6 team over lockdown. People think he can shore up Villa' leaky defence. I'd still confidently go with Ryan however as the Brighton defence looks very solid especially with Ben White's addition.

                I went ryan but pple here says mccarthy better lol

          In short: flip a coin 🙂

            Just kidding guys, thank you for your insight.

            I like shiny new things too - Martinez in, McCarthy out.

            Good luck!

          If they are picking Lamptey, they may prefer not to double up on the Brighton defense. So, it may not be Martinez over Ryan, but simply that Ryan is not being considered.

        best ASM replacement... 6.0 budget ??

          • Has Moderation Rights

          Probably playing in the last 2 games.

        2. SKULL AND GNOMES
          • 3 Years

          Who is ASM?

          I've been too busy looking at life on Venus and researching State sanctioned False Flag terrorism and rainbows.
