Scout Notes

Leeds fixtures bode well for Bamford’s impressive away FPL form

Aston Villa 0-3 Leeds

  • Goals: Patrick Bamford x3 (£5.8m)
  • Assists: Rodrigo (£5.8m), Mateusz Klich (£5.6m), Hélder Costa (£5.7m)
  • Bonus points: Bamford x3, Robin Koch x2 (£4.5m), Ezgjan Alioski x1 (£4.4m)

Pat-trick Hero

Patrick Bamford (£5.8m) proved on Friday night that he is more than just an early-season bandwagon, as he netted a spectacular second-half hat-trick at Aston Villa.

The Leeds forward made the perfect start to life in the Premier League with five attacking returns in the first three Gameweeks but had registered two consecutive blanks 

Just as comparisons with Teemu Pukki were incoming, Bamford lit up Villa Park on Friday night, terrorising what we thought was the best defence in the league to score three well-deserved goals.

Still priced below £6.0m, the former Chelsea man simply cannot stop offering exceptional value for his 24.8% ownership. As of Saturday morning, he has six goals to his name, behind only Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) in that department among forwards, while Harry Kane (£10.8m) is the only player in his position with more FPL points.

That puts significant pressure on virtually every other forward in the rest of Gameweek 6, especially the similarly priced Callum Wilson (£6.5m), Aleksandar Mitrovic (£5.9m) and Neal Maupay (£6.6m) to deliver – because, even after a couple of price rises, signing Bamford would still be an easy switch.

Thus far, away matches seem to be where he truly thrives, perhaps not entirely unsurprising considering the way Leeds excel in transition and on the counter-attack. Bamford is yet to blank on the road this season, 32 of his 49 FPL points (65.3%) coming outside Elland Road.

The Whites’ upcoming road trips between now and Gameweek 11 take them to Crystal Palace, Everton and Chelsea, who combine for just two home clean sheets from a possible nine this season.

Jack Rustled

While Jack Grealish (£7.2m) now has blanks in each of his last two Premier League outings, the 27.5%-owned midfielder was very unfortunate not to come away with attacking returns against Leeds.

Those not watching the game on BT Sport’s Box Office will have missed two of his glorious opportunities to find the net on Friday night.

In the first half, Grealish hung back to pounce on a loose ball in the box, firing a powerful left-footed effort back across Illan Meslier‘s (£4.5m) almost unguarded goal – only to see it cleared off the line by a last-ditch Luke Ayling (£4.5m) block.

Then, in the second period, Grealish won the ball in his own half, shrugged off Hélder Costa (£5.7m), put the ball beyond Robin Koch (£4.5m) and ran past him, danced beyond three Leeds defenders and finally concluded his skilful mazy run with a close-range shot saved by Meslier.

“Jack’s gone on a mazy run and forced a save from the goalkeeper. You have to make the most of those moments.” – Dean Smith

“It wasn’t (Grealish’s night). They’re the moments you need in games like this.” – Dean Smith

Considering how high a line Southampton have been playing recently, such close calls with the back of the net will surely encourage Grealish owners to fancy their chances in Gameweek 7.

Barkley impact on Grealish

Filling in for Phillips

Any Fantasy managers who had jumped on emerging £4.0m defender Pascal Struijk (£4.0m) for Gameweek 6 were left with perhaps the worst possible outcome known to an FPL asset.

In his pre-match press conference, Marcelo Bielsa unveiled the versatile 21-year-old as his chosen replacement for Kalvin Phillips (£5.0m), currently out for up to six weeks with a shoulder injury.

That was, of course, music to the Fantasy community’s ears. How often do we get Premier League managers revealing a £4.0m defender will play out of position for the next six weeks?

However, it was clear just a few minutes into Leeds’ trip to Villa Park that Struijk was somewhat out of his depth. 

With the Whites dominating possession but leaving themselves open on the counter, Struijk seriously struggled to keep up with the driving runs of Grealish, Barkley and John McGinn (£5.5m) when Villa were in transition.

He picked up a yellow card for a late tackle on Grealish in the 10th minute before crunching into another mistimed challenge on Douglas Luiz (£5.0m) just moments later, which he was lucky not to receive a second booking for.

With Struijk looking like a red card waiting to happen, Bielsa made the bold, but admirable, decision to substitute him in the 21st minute, replacing him with Jamie Shackleton (£4.8m).

“[Struijk] got a yellow card early on, and there was a lot of agility and mobility in the middle of the park. I wanted to take him off, as a result. After the yellow, he had another foul that was at the limit.” – Marcelo Bielsa

Such a disastrous evening is unlikely to do wonders for Struijk’s confidence. Given how well Shackleton played upon taking to the field, it seems unlikely Struijk will feature from the beginning in Gameweek 7.

Meanwhile, the other impact of Phillips’ absence was Mateusz Klich (£5.6m) assuming the Englishman’s corner-taking duties. Considering the mid-priced midfielder has three attacking returns from open play this season, as well as a penalty, the fact that he has set pieces to his name until Phillips returns seriously increases his FPL appeal.

Cooped Up

The fact that Leeds were able to keep a clean sheet against one of the form teams in the Premier League is certainly worth taking note of.

The achievement is even more impressive when we consider the absence of Phillips, Struijk’s terrible start to the game and the fact that first-choice centre-back Liam Cooper (£4.4m) also missed out, still carrying a groin injury sustained on international duty.

With the club captain out and Struijk used in midfield, Bielsa was forced to tuck Ayling into centre-back alongside Koch, while Ezgjan Alioski (£4.4m) deputised at left-back with Stuart Dallas (£4.5m) filling in on the left.

That rather necessary tactical tweak certainly tempered Ayling’s attacking potential compared to what he typically offers as a marauding full-back.

That said, Ayling did come close to an assist even playing at the heart of Leeds’ defence. In the second half, he lofted forward a through-ball from the Virgil van Dijk (£6.4m) or David Luiz (£5.5m) playbook. This connected with Jack Harrison (£5.5m), who cut inside and troubled Emiliano Martínez (£4.8m) with his powerful effort.

The Aston Villa shot-stopper managed a total of six saves in Gameweek 6, a welcome silver-lining to his conceding three goals, leading to a three-point score.

Aston Villa XI (4-3-3): Martínez; Targett, Mings, Konsa, Cash; Barkley, D Luiz, McGinn; Grealish, Watkins, Trézéguet (B Traoré 66′).

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Alioski, Ayling, Koch, Dallas; Struijk (Shackleton 21′); Harrison, Rodrigo (Hernández 79′), Klich, Costa (Costa 83′); Bamford.

    I'm really tempted to plan to return to the golden preseason template of:

    Salah Fernandes KdB come GW9/10. The penalties, the fixtures, the form it all aligns.

    Fernandes in (c) for GW9 for WBA. KdB in GW10. Finish the midfield with Son and Foden (City double up for BUR FUL mun WBA) and that's the midfield of dreams.

    The only problem is, it requires a lot of forward planning since I don't have Fernandes or KdB and they're both expensive so require some very good planning.

    1. Pariße

      But Kane is an asset hard to look away from and this midfield makes it impossible to have him.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 14 hours ago

        It does. But Kane's fixtures are really poor starting in GW9. There's an opportunity here that's hard to pass up.

        Fernandes has WBA vs Kane who has MCI. Then you have City who have a golden run of BUR FUL mun WBA.

        You have to look ahead. You have to go for the teams/players that have higher potential. I can definitely see people holding onto Kane too long. Similar to Vardy last season. Get on while hot and the fixtures are good. Get off when things change.

        Maybe not Kane then. Maybe Salah. But one of the two I think can be sacrificed because the upside of KdB and Fernandes from then onwards is enormous.

          Every option is great in this environment, you have to chose which ones will be better. Kane holders may do well, but the opportunity is there for those who switch to Bruno to do even better. Those marginal gains could make all the difference.

        2. ivantys
            1 month, 14 hours ago

            I hope Bruno's price doesn't go up in GW9. I'm also planning to get him in with perhaps a Martial double up. So now hoping he blanks until GW9.

      2. FPL_trail_runner

        I would say play this years game

        Question marks of KDB in the current city system, Bruno will be outscored by Rashford. Id rather Sterling over KDB

        Hamez is more essential than all those players bar Salah

          Okay, fair. Sterling and Rashford could be the options. But basically the same concept. Go for at least one MUN in GW9 and get City in GW10.

          I disagree on Hames. We've had this talk. I don't think he's essential. He has a spotty injury record and the English league is tougher physically. I really really doubt he'll continue to play every minute and will have random games where he won't play due to niggles and it will be aggravating. He has never played more than 29 league games since 2014. That is not someone that you keep for the season.

      3. Noah’s Ark

        Kane though!

          You'd have to go cheap everywhere else to get those 5 mids. Best would be 2 6+ forwards but they aren't that consistent at all.

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 14 hours ago

            Why?

            DCL and Antonio is more than a good enough strikeforce to support that midfield. Defense would be cheap, but seeing how this season goes, maybe a defense of Telles, Saiss, Dallas, Lamptey, Mitchell will be good enough from pure attacking potential.

            1. ivantys
                1 month, 14 hours ago

                If you're gonna play based on fixtures, not many consistent forwards at that price range to rotate to. And Antonio gets injured too easily as well.

                1. Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  1 month, 14 hours ago

                  There's also the option of Adams and Bamford too. You're not stuck with just Antonio.

            I am thinking the exact same hell of mid !!! If plan doesnt go wrong then my proposed plan was
            Gw 9: kane + grealish > antonio +
            Bruno(wba)
            GW 10: Bruno > kdb/sterling
            Gives me the midfield of
            Salah KDB Son rashford Foden
            With Free transfer !!!

            1. Camzy

              • 10 Years
              1 month, 14 hours ago

              No way you bring in Bruno for just one week.

              1. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 14 hours ago

                If bruno go hot then may drop one premium defence for rashford > city mid !!!

            2. ivantys
                1 month, 14 hours ago

                I take bruno over rashford any day.

              Like the plan but I think choosing the correct City attacker will be key.
              If Aguero is back on pens then it's a much trickier decision.

              I'll have Salah, Mane, Kane & Son in GW9 so I'll be looking to get in a United and maybe a couple of City attackers from there on.

            4. Holmes
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 14 hours ago

              Build my WC team with this strategy in mind, things can obviously change but I'll hopefully be able to get all of them for free.

              1. Camzy

                1 month, 14 hours ago

                Yeah you're lucky if you still have a WC imo. Double City in GW10 for sure and bring in Bruno/Rash in GW9 preemptively and keep them. I'm trying to plan now how to get all of that without taking a ton of hits.

                1. Paul Psychic Octopus
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 14 hours ago

                  Unfortunately with positive Covid tests, this is probably the season for hits.

            5. Paul Psychic Octopus
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 14 hours ago

              Am looking at bringing in Rashford, not Bruno.
              Currently have no Man City. Doesn't look right but might keep it that way.

            6. Caleb's Kitties

              I like your plan, and personally looking to go with salah son kdb kane, only diff being kane over fernandes. I'm getting fernandes, but only to captain for gw9 and plan to move to kdb gw10. Kane can punish heavily in this form. My plan is go without pool defender to fund this as there are many 5.0 attacking defenders (cresswell, bellerin etc) with favorable fixtures who I think can match for 2.0 less. In the process, bamford seems to fit my budget perfectly

              1. Camzy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 14 hours ago

                That's a huge difference. Having and keeping Fernandes over Kane for the good fixtures is a big opportunity. He's a fantastic FPL asset. Fixtures are going to turn for him in GW9.

                Kane will be unlikely to keep this level of insane production up without good fixtures to facilitate. Couple with the fact he's a forward and gets fewer points for goals and no clean sheets, I just can't see him outperforming Fernandes or any of the other premium mids. In this form and with these fixtures, he's a must but in a few weeks, I'm ready to move him on.

                1. Caleb's Kitties
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 14 hours ago

                  Cheers, fernandes or kane is a tough one to choose between but kane seems to better fit my plans and with value tied up as well. Landscape could quickly change in a couple of weeks. All the best.

                  Southampton at home its not a bad fixture though and they goals that Southampton have conceded came mainly from forwards.

              You have the luxury of taking a look at Brewster this evening. Difficult to judge his effectiveness and how many chances Sheff U create though, as it's against Liverpool.

              1. drughi

                • 11 Years

                true but I soucek that I'm willing to play in a 3-5-2 for a few weeks so brewster works mostly as an enabler

                1. Paul Psychic Octopus
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 14 hours ago

                  I think with so many players testing positive, we're going to need our bench. But I think Brewster is a good option (I have him - for the same reason you mentioned).

            A player I have in consideration to bring in and keep Longterm is Rashford at 9.5mil

            Was a mistake selling him in week 4.

            May roll out a 3 5 2 with
            Son Hamez Rashford Sterling Salah in midfield
            with DCL and Antonio up top

              It's a good plan. Son is proving very hard to remove though if he continues to play upfront.

                Oh you kept him... I thought you had Foden as well for the City double. It's a good plan I guess.

              Ha. I dropped him for chillwell already.

              Good luck though!

                If he does, I won't be too annoyed. Will never have considered starting him over other defenders this match, and I'm a Chelsea fan, so any points on the board are good.

                  I've got Mitchell ahead of him which could be a 1pter himself this week. Just realised he's 2nd on mine...even more torture to miss him by one if he scores a wonder goal again.
