Bamford bags again as Sheffield United remain without a goal ahead of tough fixture run

SHEFFIELD UNITED 0-1 LEEDS UNITED

  • Goals: Patrick Bamford (£5.7m)
  • Assists: Jack Harrison (£5.5m)
  • Bonus:  Illan Meslier (£4.5m) x3, Bamford x2, Harrison x1, Luke Ayling (£4.5m) x1

The Patrick Bamford (£5.7m) bandwagon is set to continue rolling after the Leeds forward’s late headed goal saw the Whites triumph in Sunday’s Yorkshire derby.

In a pre-planned link-up the striker nodded home a Jack Harrison (£5.5m) cross, having put two headed efforts wide in the opening half.

“This one came off my nose but I’ll take it! I was a bit disappointed I didn’t score a header in the first half.

“Before the game I said to Jack, I’m going between the middle centre-back and the far one so put the ball there. First half he did it, I didn’t score.

“Second half he did it, I got the goal. Fair play to him for putting it on the money.” – Patrick Bamford

Having highlighted Leeds’ lack of creativity in the opening two Gameweeks, Marcelo Bielsa was happier with his side’s build-up play at Bramall Lane:

It was a just result. The first half was pretty even, we could have scored and conceded. Second half was a lot better for us.

We managed to attack well, we had six or seven opportunities. In that sense, the offensive animation was better.

While Leeds have scored eight times on the way to earning six Premier League points, Sheffield United have neither a point nor a goal to their name with three Gameweeks gone.

The Blades face trips to Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea, along with a visit from Manchester City, in the next five Gameweeks.

“We’ll be glad to see the back of September. Fresh start in October at Arsenal away. I can’t fault a lot of the things the players have done this afternoon. It was a really tight game.

“I’ve been told you gave the man-of-the-match award to the Leeds United goalkeeper; we’ve got to take our chances in the Premier League. That’s the top and bottom of it.” – Chris Wilder

As Wilder alludes to, this game was almost a tale of two goalkeepers before Bamford’s late winner.

Aaron Ramsdale (£5.0m) – who was well on his way to a monster haul before conceding – racked up seven saves from a combination of good stops, poor finishing and long-range efforts.

While Illan Meslier (£4.5m) made three fewer saves, the Leeds keeper’s stops were arguably more impressive.

All the same, John Lundstram (£5.4m) will himself feel he should have rattled the net just shy of the half-hour mark.

The midfielder was afforded a big chance just before the half-hour mark, as Ben Osborn (£4.9m) broke to find David McGoldrick (£5.4m) in the box.

The striker’s flick arrived at Lundstram’s feet from six yards out but the midfielder was unable to convert as Meslier managed to push the close-range effort around the post.

The 20-year-old then somehow managed to get a rangy left hand to George Baldock‘s (£5.5m) stinger, produced after the wing-back had rolled Harrison to make shooting space in the area on 37 minutes.

Bamford had signalled his intent in the opening period, heading over twice from a Kalvin Phillips (£5.0m) free-kick and a Harrison cross.

Stuart Dallas (£4.5m), who saw a looping effort tipped over by Ramsdale in the first half, was almost on the scoresheet in the second period.

Ramsdale had Chris Basham (£5.0m) to thank for clearing a Dallas effort just before it went over the line.

The Leeds full-back had rounded the stranded stopper after a mistake from Ethan Ampadu (£4.5m) allowed the ball to run through.

A surging run from Dallas then saw subsitute Rodrigo (£5.9m) head wide, before Bamford just failed to connect with a whipped ball from Harrison with 20 minutes remaining.

The Blades almost took the lead from a late corner as Jack Robinson (£4.4m) skewed wide with his weaker right foot from point-blank range after Oli McBurnie (£5.9m) just about failed to get his head on the delivery.

Bamford then stole the show and all three points for Marcelo Bielsa’s men, with the striker earning praise from his manager post-match.

Asked about suggestions that the budget FPL forward might struggle at the top level, Bielsa responded:

There are a lot of people who thought contrary to what you say.

The league season is very long. Hopefully he can continue to show his obvious qualities.

The enigmatic Leeds boss was also pleased with his side’s first clean sheet in the league:

It is an achievement we were looking for, to not concede. I think we defended well, with few errors.

Having said that, our rivals did have opportunities. We grew.

On taking off Rodrigo, who had been brought on for the second half, Bielsa explained:

A few minutes were left, I had to substitute Bamford or Rodrigo. Bamford is a very useful player on set pieces against.

But it wasn’t a good decision because Bamford was tired. I should have kept Rodrigo on the field.

Wilder, for his part, is fretful over the Blades’ lack of sharpness in front of goal.

They found a bit of quality at the end. But I think it’s a foul on Sander Berge [in the build-up to the goal] yet again. I think there’s a couple of things that haven’t gone for us the last two or three games, from a decision point of view.

I’ve just seen Marcelo is going to walk right across me right now…no, he’s not, he’s swerved me because he might be on the receiving end of a tackle if he did!

We have to be more clinical. The best chances fell to us. From John Lundstram, George Baldock, Oli McBurnie, Jack Robinson. Four or five really good chances.

The first goal is so important in the Premier League, as we all know. I thought the shape of the team was good. We know how Leeds play, we understand how they play. High energy, high tempo. It was a really quick game.

When it opens up you have to take your chances; we haven’t. We ultimately get punished by a fantastic ball and a great header.

When you look at our goals or when we do create chances, they’re well worked. We haven’t got the players in the group to do something out of the ordinary. We have to really work hard to create our chances, which we did in the game.

After three consecutive defeats, Wilder is “hopeful” more signings will arrive before the transfer deadline:

The longer it [the losing run] goes on, it becomes more concerning. There’s still plenty of belief and fight in us.

Despite being taken off after 73 minutes, FPL midfielder Oliver Burke (£4.5m) put in a decent audition for FPL bosses seeking bench fodder.

The ex-West Brom winger had two shots, one inside the box, while creating three opportunities for his team-mates.

Defender Robinson might be one for the watchlist, with the left-footed centre-back possibly set for an extended run in Wilder’s defence due to Jack O’Connell‘s (£5.0m) knee injury:

“Things are not going for us at the moment. Obvious disappointment with Jack’s injury. Massive disappoint for the boy, he’s worked extremely hard to get to where he has and he’s been pivotal to our rise.

“He’s going for an operation on Wednesday, so minimum six months.” – Chris Wilder

        I hate taking hits, but actually given the fixtures next week (Ings v WBA, Castagne v WHU), I actually think it's the best time to take a hit.
        Probably prefer A, because not many obvious sub-9m mids, unless you go to e.g. James, and use the money elsewhere next week.

      thanks guys

    4. Pipermaru

      It won't be a popular one here but B.

  3. Daniel - Go Granville
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Jimmy Podence and Saiss combo owners, what are we expecting next GW? Surely they can't bring 0 pts in total right? Or can they? Are we selling some of those chaps?

    1. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Sell Jimenez, but only if it involves a -4 to bring in the top points scorer from this week.

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        huh

    2. sambyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Not selling anyone with those fixtures

    3. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Wolves are still a solid team, just a freak match i think. I'm sure Saiss and especially Jiminez are good options for the next few games.

      No way am I selling with the next 3-4 fixtures they have.

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        thanks, lads for the reassurance

    4. Garlana

      The only way is up!

      1. ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years

        I said that last week and yet...

        1. Garlana
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

    5. waldo666
      • 10 Years

      I have just changed my captain to Jimmy after that woeful effort from Fulham, expect big things.

  4. The Head-Ake
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Son + Davis to Bamford + James Rod for free?

    1. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      bamford and j rod might regress a little bit

  5. Roy Rovers
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Revised WC penalty taking team!!….any thoughts?

    Martinez / Button
    TAA / Castagne / Lamptey / Ayling / Mitchell
    Fernandes / Salah / KDB / Klich / Anguisa
    Richarlison / Maupay / Wilson

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Solid approach

      1. Roy Rovers
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Cheers Miguel

    2. cigan
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Quite like this, though not sure on Wilson as Newcastle look hopeless

      1. Roy Rovers
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        He could be Mitrovic

        1. DA Minnion
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          No I think he is in fact Wilson.

    3. Garlana
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Somehow get Ings in for Wilson, Wilson took the pen but with Ritchie off. Also fancy Ings to tick along better outside of pens.

  6. You've got red on you.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Options: what say you?

    a) Fernandes, Soucek and Havertz

    b) Fernandes, Foden and Barnes/Mount

    c) Rodriguez/Barnes, Foden and Havertz

    d) Ings, Foden and Havertz

    1. ZLNR
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      B with Barnes

  7. BremerHB
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Thoughts on keeping Rodriguez as part of a double up on WC with DCL?

    Or might it be worth moving him out to someone like Barnes/Zaha/Foden/Pereira/Trossard in order to facilitate Vardy over Ings as a 3rd FWD?

    1. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I think DCL and Richarlison double up is a good one

      1. BremerHB
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Was also thinking about this too. Not 100% sure if Rich is on penalties though - if I was sure then I would be tempted.

      2. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Am considering it myself.....after Everton plays Liverpool

    2. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Trossard could be immense this year

      1. BremerHB
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I think Brighton will do better this year than last year too. Immense might be pushing it though!

    3. BIG TONES
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Rodriguez looks class, but can see him being the assist the assister guy quite often. Just my take...

  8. DannyDrinkVodka
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Maupay is going to take load of penalties this year, good value

    1. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      will he.?

    2. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yeah with the amount of runs into the box Lamptey makes, Bri should get a good number of pens.
      Also has decent threat from open play.

  9. Jellyfish
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Have exact funds to do Son > Mahrez and Davis > Ings

    but...it would be for a -8 hit.

    Worth it yes/no?

    1. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      basically it is a 4pt hit, not 8

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        No its -8. I've already taken my FH (Werner > Jimi)

        1. Daniel - Go Granville
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          you don't understand. Son and Davis mean 0 pts, Mahrez and Ings in theory are 4 pts only for appearance. it is 4 pt hit, not 8

          1. Jellyfish
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Okay in that context yes, understood. My weak bench makes a further case for doing this too....Bissouma, ASM (doubtful), Mitchel

          2. Annie
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            bench....

    2. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I'd worry about Mahrez, as after international break Jesus/Aguero may well be back, and he might be back on bench

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Yes he is a risk

  10. ZLNR
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    1. Auba-> KDB
    2. Martial-> jiminez
    3. ASM -> ?

    1. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Maybe keep Auba see how he looks tonight. They play Sheffield next at home

      1. ZLNR
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Thanks. I just worry about a lack of city. More tempted with 2 actually. Definitely waiting I made son transfer before his GW last week and got very lucky haha

    2. Pipermaru
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I would start from getting rid of weakest link which is ASM, leave Auba and Martial alone, they will get you points.

  11. Pépé Pig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    A) Pereira (likely on pens) + Bruno

    B) Barnes + Rashford

  12. yosim
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Son -> Barnes or Penandes ??

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Barnes for next two

      2. Better off with a pin and a…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Both good options. Barnes certainly has the short-term fixtures, but the Pen in Penandes is helpful.

      3. yosim
          1 month, 27 days ago

          thanks

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            set piece takers say Austin, Robson-Kanu and Zohore, neither 3 have started a game and cant see CalRob being dropped now

            1. dbeck
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

              I hope its Pereira

              1. Daniel - Go Granville
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 27 days ago

                Austin, Robson-Kanu, Zohore. in that order

      5. BIG TONES
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Vardy or Ings?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Ings - better player in open play right now and both on pens, 1.7 price difference

          1. BIG TONES
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Fair points! the 1.7 goes so much further

            1. Daniel - Go Granville
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

        2. YEAH PITCH!
          • 1 Year

      6. Iceball
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        KDB Foden Mahrez too much or good gamble before Leeds? Mahrez and Foden Should both get good gametime next 2-3 weeks.
        Thinking of Son replacement, not that excited over Rash, Zaha, Barnes... Mahrez could go wild vs Leeds.

        1. cigan
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Yeah City - Leeds looks like another goalfest. Can't decide between Son > Mahrez and Son + Davis > Trossard + DCL/Rich (-4)

        I’ve had a terrible start to season just like most I guess. Captain picks have been rubbish I always said I wouldn’t have Son after he let me down last season but after 4 goals and fixtures I decided to get him but exactly same thing happened. Safe to say he won’t be in my team even when he hauls. He’s just one of them players that doesn’t work for me I want him to go and play in a different league and be gone.
        Decided now that I’m just going to enjoy the season and try to get a decent team if that means taking hits then so what. Never been so moody during a football season as I am now and wife’s not happy with me. After all the shite in the world is it worth it
        I getting depressed man and life’s too short.
        On a positive note 1.5 million players had a worst week than me

          Fantasy football is not worth it if it is having an impact on your mental health. There is so much more in to live that FF.

            Sorry if that came across that way it was kind of meant as a joke just to cap off my week. Cheers for reply and don’t worry I’m good although I do get moody when things don’t go well but you should see me when they do go well I’m on it like a car bonnet

          I feel you that's why I tried a different approach this season is doing transfers that I like regardless all the hype and stats or price tags /ownership etc it's ups and downs chill you still got it

          My lowest ever rank before this season was 1.2m.Now sitting at 4.9m OR after 3 gameweeks 107 pts off the top 10k.My sons autopick team which he hasn't changed is doing better.Just gotta laugh and keep going.

            I know my daughters team is better than mine she’s done no transfers and has none playing players who are replaced by good bench players.

          Both good shout Vardy for me

        On WC:

        Martinez, Steer
        ***, Saiss, TAA, Castagne, Mitchell
        ***, ***, KDB, Salah, Soucek
        Jimi, Richarlison, Bamford

        A) Lamptey, Zaha, Barnes/Maddison
        or
        B) R.James, Trossard, Rodriguez

        Son obviously got to go. Replacement? Barnes, Trossard, Pereira, Klich?
        What about Werner - bring in Vardy,Jimenez?

        Help!

          Just Son out I think. I'm considering Barnes and Mahrez.

            Agree. If no Vardy I think Barnes is a very good pick. With Vardy and then eventually Barnes maybe three Leicester is one too much, though good fixtures next 4.

        Sneaky WC draft if anyone feels like pulling it apart!

        3-4-3

        Guaita
        Saiss - KWP - Lamptey
        KDB - Salah - Bruno - Trossard
        Ings - Jimi - Maupay

        Subs: 4.0 - Burke - Justin - Dunne

        1. F_Ivanovic
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          I'd be a bit wary of Saiss as there's a chance he gets dropped. Lack of Liverpool defence at back not to my personal liking and I'd maybe downgrade Bruno to fit that in but looks fine otherwise.

          1. BIG TONES
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Thanks for feedback! Usually am always with a LIV defender, but they just don't seem solid this season! Not so far anyway... Saiss a risk of dropping?

            1. F_Ivanovic
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

              I mean they didn't last season for a time but then they still both finished on 180/210 points repectively. Having one in at least means you don't need to reorganize team structure later on if you want to get one in.

              Saiss - yes, potentially. Might not happen but he's not had a good 2 games and the Wolves forum seem to think he should get dropped but ofc it's down to Nuno so it might not happen.

        If Podence is not fit, thoughts on Son and Brewster out, Richarlison and Barnes in? 8pt hit. the bench is Dier and Mitchel and Podence in this case.

        1. Traction Engine Foot
          • 2 Years

          Quite like it but -8 is a lot..

          1. Daniel - Go Granville
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Wouldn't I get it back right away? If they both play it is -4 actually and I need 1 attacking return and boom, it is done.

            1. Traction Engine Foot
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

              I guess so. Though what if Dier scores a hattrick...

              But yeah go for it if your gut says yes.

        Which one do you prefer?

        Maupay + Zaha
        Or
        Ings + Trossard

        A recent World Health Organization (WHO) report has confirmed that Fantasy Premier League addiction is now close to “epidemic” proportions.

          since you have connections with WHO, will the fans be back to stadiums? at least 10-15K?

            no.. not yet

            Boris recently told me.. no fans till 2021 😉

        Son + Davis > Vardy + 4.5 MID -4?

        If so which 4.5 MID

        A) Mendy
        B) Alzate
        C) Anguissa

        1. Napster03
          • 1 Year

          Burke

        2. Jellyfish
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Vardy's flagged though

            Apparently it’s an ongoing issue but he’ll be fine for the weekend. Leicester also one of the teams without a midweek game.

        Werner + Saka to Barnes + DCL for -4

        Thoughts on above move?

        The game was so much easier when there were fans at stadiums. Ever since it restarted its been a wild ride and point chasing. Still I stabilized to finish first in my Mini League last season. But the start of this season is just like a wild roller coaster ride.
        At least it makes the Premiership more unpredictable
