Leeds defence in danger of achieving FPL ‘whipping boy’ status once more

  • Own goals: Hélder Costa (£5.7m)

WHIPPING FORECAST

Fantasy Premier League managers are likely to start targetting the Leeds United defence again when searching for attacking returns after another heavy defeat.

The Whites were beaten 4-1 by Crystal Palace in Gameweek 8, the second time in as many Premier League matches that they conceded four times.

That is the sort of form they displayed in the opening weeks, as Marcelo Bielsa’s men gave up seven goals in the first two matches of the campaign.

After a period of defensive improvement, in which they conceded just 0.5 goals per game against Sheffield United, Manchester City, Wolves and Aston Villa, Leeds have looked rather exposed in both of their last two outings.

There was an element of fortune about some of Crystal Palace’s goals, although their pace on the counter played a part in the build-up of each.

Scott Dann (£4.4m) nodded home a corner supplied by Eberechi Eze (£5.8m), who netted a direct free-kick won from his own determined running before Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) got into too much space in the corner before his cross was bizarrely turned into the Leeds net by Hélder Costa (£5.7m).

While there is unlikely to be Fantasy interest in Arsenal attackers for Gameweek 9, Leeds face trips to Everton and Chelsea in the following two rounds, two sides with plenty of talent in the midfield and forward positions.

DALLAS COWBOY

While Leeds’ defensive credentials are slowly declining, Fantasy managers may still be intrigued by the role of Stuart Dallas (£4.5m) in Bielsa’s side.

The Whites manager rolled out his famed 3-3-3-1 formation for the first time this season as he took his side to Crystal Palace. 

That featured Luke Ayling (£4.5m) on the right-hand side of a back-three with Liam Cooper (£4.4m) and Robin Koch (£4.5m) which, arguably restricted his ability to get forward and be involved in attacking play compared to when he is afforded a right full-back role.

By contrast, Dallas was afforded a spot on the right-hand side of central midfield which, accordingly, led to the FPL defender having a greater involvement higher up the pitch.

Meanwhile, there was a noteworthy start for £4.0m FPL defender Pascal Struijk (£4.0m) in that central midfield trio.

How long his run in the team can realistically last largely depends on the fitness of Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m) and, now, that of Jamie Shackleton (£4.8m), who sustained a muscle injury in training this week. Both of those players will have the opportunity for recovery over the international break, of course.

TICKING ALONG

Owned by 33.5% and 29% respectively, this game’s popular options Bamford and Wilfried Zaha (£7.4m) both highlighted they were fully capable of ticking along.

Leeds’ first-choice centre-forward came away with a seven-point score but it could have been even more were it not for a rather contentious VAR call ruling out a first-half goal.

Finding the net courtesy of a Klich knockdown, Bamford is still yet to blank away from home in 2020/21, averaging 9.8 points per game on the road this season.

Meanwhile, Zaha’s assist may have been a little less than his owners wanted from Palace finding the net four times but it helps extend his positive start to the season.

Ahead of facing Burnley (away), Newcastle (home) and West Bromwich Albion (away) between now and Gameweek 11, the out-of-position midfielder has seven attacking returns to his name. It took him 23 Gameweeks to string together that many last season.

Anyone looking for a differential in the Palace attack for those favourable fixtures could consider Eze who offers a budget price as well as a role in corners and direct free-kicks, those helping him score 13 points in Gameweek 8.

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; van Aanholt, Dann, Kouyaté, Clyne; Eze, McArthur, Riedewald (McCarthy 77′), A Townsend (Schlupp 71′); Zaha, Ayew (Benteke 85′).

Leeds United XI (3-3-3-1): Meslier; Cooper, Koch, Ayling; Alioski, Struijk (Roberts 71′), Dallas; Harrison, Klich, Costa (Raphinha 46′); Bamford.

        Hit for jimi to bamford allowing foden to Bruno

        -8 for jimi to Brewster, 4.5 mid to greilish and foden to Rashford

        So many options, think I’ll just hold haha

        Zaha or ziyech for son?

        1. mookie
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Keep Son

        2. Vazza
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Ziyech but you shouldn’t sell son

          • Og
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            I'm selling Son! Spurs will digress after West Brom and I want to jump onto the next form player. I could be horribly wrong but a risk im willing to take. Unless callum wilson is injured then I will reassess.

            1. Forgetmeknot
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 15 days ago

              I agree and am doing the same. dropping players in form is risky but as I’m on wildcard and poor OR l think worth the chance to catch the upside early

          • Tcheco
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Would only sell Son for KDB or Sterling in GW10

          • FPL_Motty
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Selling Son for Zaha? Sounds crazy to me lol

        3. liverpool01
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Thinking of using wildcard, how does this draft look?

          Mccarthy

          Pva, Chiwell, Coufal
          Salah, Son, Bruno Zaha, Grealish
          Dcl, Antonio, Bamford

          Button, Neco Williams, Justin,

          0.5Itb

          Button

          1. Vazza
              2 months, 15 days ago

              Very average if I’m being honest mate.

              1. liverpool01
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 15 days ago

                What would you change? I've gone for Neco Williams so I could go for a starting 3rd striker, maybe switch Justin to Lamptey.

              • 3 Years
              2 months, 15 days ago

              You need some Man City with that fixture run

              1. liverpool01
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 15 days ago

                Starting GW10 Man City have great fixtures may hold my wildcard till then, but thanks mate.

            • Tcheco
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 15 days ago

              You'll want to load up on City assets starting GW10 if you're wildcarding. Would hold until then

              1. liverpool01
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 15 days ago

                Cool will do thanks

            • FPL_Motty
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 15 days ago

              Neco williams is a waste of a Pool slot. Justin will lose place eventually when ricardo back. You have 8 in attack? Can only play 7, so theres a waste of cash there. Antonio currently injured.. And like a lot of people have said, lacking city coverage. My advice.. keep WC until gw 10 and then get in some city / vardy for the fixture swing, why use WC now?

              1. liverpool01
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 15 days ago

                Yes my post above I said I would wait till gw10 to use my wildcard, good points you have made.

            1. Vazza
                2 months, 15 days ago

                I would be reluctant to sell Son

            2. Vazza
                2 months, 15 days ago

                Very average if I’m being honest mate

                Why all the spurs sales? They love space in behind so the fixtures surely don't Mata? Son especially?

                Currently on son Salah Fernandez jrod ziyech with no city and If anything salahs the one who seems expensive , 5 mill plus grealish is tempting....

                  Do u like ur players have green or red fixturest?

                  Im manager who targets fixtures, thats why im getting rid of both.

                    I think it's form fixtures and quality, kane and son have two out of three plus the way they set up makes 'bad' fixtures less bad I think.

                    Fundamentally too many quality options in mf this year, starting to wonder if 12m+ can be jusitied

                      Fair enough, but im waiting to go different.

                    He’s a 6.4m player. Don’t expect him to play like Messi or Ronaldo every week

                    Antonio's return will benefit him, Haller just can't do it for West Ham

                  • FPL_Motty
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    2 months, 15 days ago

                    He did actually play well - ran himself into the ground possibly why he was subbed. He created and shot alot, I would keep if I were you. Unfortunately Haller doesn't link up well, bowen wants to play 1-2s, haller is slow to react and bowen ends up losing possession but when Antonio is there they play alot better

                  Spurs fixture swing is very good for The game, maybe se start too litle different teams.

                  My thinking Zaha,Son,Kane -> Bruno,KDB,Richaril.

                  And thanks, but dont need lecture that i need to keep Kane etc.

                    2 months, 15 days ago

                    Who’s a better pick -

                    A. Bellerin
                    B. Cresswell

                      • 9 Years
                      2 months, 15 days ago

                      Coufal.

                      Chilwell, Cancelo, Coufal is the best front 3 right now.

                      1. Pukkipartyy
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 1 Year
                        2 months, 15 days ago

                        Im not sold for that Cancelo pick. We dont know is he nailed and i think only players that are nailed on that City team is KDB and Sterling.

                        But sure great upside but stress every week.

                        I’m on wildcard and will have those 3 plus targett and probs Dallas (to cover for when chilwell & cancelo are rested)

                          2 months, 15 days ago

                          Kilman over Dallas

                          Leeds isn't a defensive side, and attacking returns aren't consistent enough for the defenders to make up for this

                            2 months, 15 days ago

                            I did consider him but think he is still at risk of game time with saiss, marcel and al ait (sp?) so need a secure starter

                      At this point I'd wait until 10 and load up on City players.

                    I'm not so keen on Saints defence double up but KWP rotates well with Kilman and Coufal so I don't mind him and McCarthy seems the best 0.5 option.

                    I really want to do McCarthy to Leno but where to get the 0.5?..

                      Solid

                      Wouldn't change anything

                      At what price did you get Kilman?

                        4.3 just now

                        Can shift to Jamal Lewis..

                          Hmm

                          May not be a great alternative but you can try Bellerin, Cancelo, 3.9 over Walker Pieters, Dias, Kilman (if desperate for Arsenal defender)

                      Great team. Don't change it. There's nothing wrong with the double-up either. Coufal, KWP and Kilman rotate seamlessly for one spot all the way to January

                              Very similar team to mine except I have

                              Bellerin, Zouma, Robbo (Fodder x2 def)

                        Is Holding nailed by any chance?

                          Do 'winning goal BPS' actually exist? Soucek was on 30 when the final whistle blew last night and that didn't change.

                            Might have got some deduction which takes place after match is over

                            It's now added during the match, not after

                            Yeah this was sad. Was hoping at least 2baps considering he was the reason they won. Not actually sure how coufal was higher, cresswell was the best player

                          Everyone is going to invest heavily in an out of form City and ignore Chelsea before they smash Leeds.

                            Not enough FTs to get Chelsea and then get rid again

                            Don’t understand this but Man City and Spurs play against each other in GW9 and then there is a huge fixture difficulty swing for both team.

                            So what’s the difference whether we WC ahead or GW9 or GW10? It’s not as though we are going to miss out on an easy fixture if we load up on City player ahead of GW9. Plus it gives us an opportunity to bring in a Man U player or two ahead of their fixture against WBA...

                            Any thoughts guys?

                              No difference

                              I understand the urge to WC & tinker for 2 weeks because of IB but would still hold until 10 if I had a good team coming into 9

                              Maybe use your FT to get Bruno in for WBA?

                                  Not before Fulham

                                  West Ham got a lot of joy down Fulham's flanks, with crosses and all. Quite the good sign for J Rod

                              It's Bruno

                              But Grealish is waaaaayyy up there as well

                              Rodriguez can blow hot and cold. KDB and Sterling should count too, especially KDB, but we need to see City return to brutalizing teams first, which probably resumes GW10

                                  Absolutely, but he is over 3m more, can’t you have both?

                                Cheers boys. Maybe a bit premature but counting on his away form

                                Last time Son played 1st game on Sunday he scored 4, so fingers crossed. Thought I had Kane as captain and realised forgot to change so rolling with it!

                                Fair play, hope it works out for you. TC is one of those chips that even if you leave it for the "optimal" GW with a double etc, still results in a disappointing 1pter (cough mane). I wish I'd just used mine 1GW of the season on Salah when it was pretty secure, not worth the stress later in the season! WBA away seems as good a fixture as any to go for it

                              Im unsure Spurs can keep up their form if im honest. The Mourinho wheels will fall off during the tough run.

                                It's going to be the true test of his reign so far. They're no longer in transition & have a very strong squad

                              Can’t see beyond Wilson, Soucek, Dallas to Brewster, Bruno, Bernardo (-8) How does this sound? Can then bring in Kilman for Mitchell the week after..

                              I’m thinking of selling Salah and keeping Kane/Son.

                                Sounds like youre trying to be too clever. Salah is still top of almost every attacking metric, liverpool aren't slowing down their attack - constant captain option. I honestly can't see who you could replace with as a better option?

                                      It's that time for us people to go hard or go home. Spurs out for Man City probably.

                                      KDB and Bruno i guess.

                                      Then Sterling and Rash if you have cash.

                                      GW9: Man U. Full team likely back fit, if Rashford's shoulder recovers and Greenwood's illness is gone. Telles easily replaces Shaw, so that's not a problem. West Brom loves to capitulate, whether they park the bus or not. City vs Spurs can go in so many unpredictable ways so there's no rush

                                      GW10: Man City. Double or triple up. At least one regular striker will be back fit, so they can resume playing their usual roles. They also have 3+ nailed defenders, which is a first in a while, and they're still defensive juggernauts due to their ball hogging in easy games. Laporte and Dias have fit in well, with Walker forming a pseudo-CB by staying back most of the time, while Cancelo makes the bombarding Mendy-like runs. 13 GWs of Pep's madness, and he badly needs wins...

                                      I'd say Bruno now, City double or triple next GW. Keep both after

                                          Cheers! Just that most in my ML have Bruno, that could kill me, and Rash can’t keep up with Bruno, it seems

                                          No chance!! He is really not great - I feel sorry for Sheffield for forking out a club record fee for him
