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

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.

    Kind of hoping West Brom don't get destroyed today, as it means I can ignore Bruno next week.

        I think WBA are going to be terrific today

        United are playing at home.
        On top of that they are playing a bottom side.

        Two negatives. Definitely not considering bruno captain. I see a 0-1 loss or dull 0-0 draw.

        Wait till the IB
        But it's a move you're going to make.

        Right! It was the biggest betting related transfer of wealth from the stupid to the smart since McGregor vs. Mayweather.

      5. Joey Tribbiani
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Trump going down value, and Biden rising tonight. good move

        • ALI_G

          which one has a better chance of baps?

          Trump has been red carded. Currently appealing his suspension.

        When were Leeds not whipping boys?

        1. Amey

          They are new breed of whipped boys.

              I won't mind that 😀

              • 4 Years

              No chance IMO because of how bad some of the other teams are

              1. Epic ⚽ 墅
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years

                That could well be their saving grace.

            3. Well you know, Triffic

              • 10 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

              They can actually score goals so I think they'll be fine. Burnley, Sheff United and Wba on the other hand...

              1. amitmishr
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 18 days ago

                You could put Fulham in the mix as well. They are flattering now, but could revert to normalcy by the second half

      7. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Any reason to consider Richarlison ahead of DCL as a differential on WC? Haven't owned either all season so they will cost the same.

        1. Ze_Austin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Nope.

          1. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Who has better stats and has a higher chance of getting points? DCL

            Even ignoring ownership, it's still DCL

            Getting a differential just to ignore the obvious can really, REALLY bite

            1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

              That's true.
              The only thing possibly in favour of Rich is pens.
              If he matches DCL from open play then he will be the better option but that's a big IF and probably not happening.

              1. Ze_Austin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 18 days ago

                Exactly. Rich is a lot less clinical, losing BPS easily et al

                Fulham and Leeds will give lots of chances. Everybody at Everton feeds the ball to DCL

                1. Ze_Austin
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 18 days ago

                  And Everton doesn't rely heavily on runs into the box and dribbling, so pens might not come at the frequency of other attacking teams

                  DCL and Rich? Yes

                  Rich in isolation, as an asset? Yes

                  Rich over DCL? Not much to back that

                  1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 18 days ago

                    Very true, Agree 100%!

        2. Amey
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Definitely.
          He's a brilliant option.

        3. jamiejoe
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Richarlison drastically improves Everton attack, others have benefited with returns more than him.

        4. FPL_Motty
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Yes, he's on Pens

        5. THE KING CANTONA
          • 1 Year

          Pen taker when Siggy not on field.

        6. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Rich is definitely the cool pick. Also on pens. Just looks like DCL will be on the end of everything.

        7. Vazza
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Despite the stats, Richarlison is a better player than DCL. So it’s a tough call

            He was on fire before he got banned. He will be heavily involved and he's worth a punt.

            Struijk, sorry

            Maybe if one of the Pool 4.0s impresses the way Kilman did

            It's going to be hard to keep Matip out, as he'd love to slot back in

            I upgraded my 4 (Nathan Ferguson lol) to a 4.5.

            Given injuries and covid I think it's worth having cheap defenders in case.

                  I know it's a long way off, but I may have to risk an early move as it's almost exact money.

                  From GW10, which combo do you prefer (I will also have KDB in the squad for both):

                  A) Jrod & Son (got at 9.0)
                  B) Sterling & Barkley

                  Also have Grealish & DCL if it helps. Barkley is expendable for another sub 6 mid when Villa's fixtures turn.

                  Cheers in advance.

                    A by some distance

                    Funds gotten elsewhere can convert JRod to Ziyech or someone else by GW12, if needed

                        You must have misunderstood the premise of the question

                        1. Vazza
                            2 months, 18 days ago

                            Yes, I know you can only afford one etc but the premise of my response is that you ideally need both

                            1. Ha.
                              • 5 Years
                              2 months, 18 days ago

                              It’s not a matter of a affordability, it’s a matter of who is the better pick

                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                        2 months, 18 days ago

                        KDB Rashford or Bruno Jesus ... and I can't decide as yet. The less transfers that I have to make leading to the latter. So prob depending on team situation unless WC.

                        1. FPL_Motty
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                          2 months, 18 days ago

                          Such a difficult question, because its KDB hands down, and Bruno hands down the best picks. I'm going to try and push through getting both to solve that conundrum, not a fan of getting a player to "cover" points. The main man is the best pick - due to capataincy options as well

                          1. Magic Zico
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            2 months, 18 days ago

                            Again it depends on the team situation, I genuinely like Jesus as it allows to get Vardy as well ... so overall it's going to be more rounded team, at least that's my management approach. Captaincy, I get it yes!

                            1. FPL_Motty
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                              2 months, 18 days ago

                              Vardy can be a great option coming up, would just point out a word of caution.. Aguero will be back soon

                              1. Magic Zico
                                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                                2 months, 18 days ago

                                I am not Aguero fan these days with his fitness

                                1. Ha.
                                  • 5 Years
                                  2 months, 18 days ago

                                  I agree. I think Vardy and KDB might just edge it.

                      3. FPL_Motty
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        2 months, 18 days ago

                        In terms of who is the better pick to OP - KDB avged slightly higher points per game than Bruno, which was over the course of an entire season (impressive). Bruno was on fire and has a greater goal threat. I think they are both equal to be honest, based on the fact that KDB costs more and also is likely to gain more points overall, Bruno is also priced accordingly at lower than KDB but both are incredible value at both price points. I would say it just comes down to fixtures depending on when you want them

                      4. The Ilfordian
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 2 Years
                        2 months, 18 days ago

                        Right now it has to be Bruno doesn’t it? Despite variable team form he’s racking up the points and I’m not convinced by City while they’re struggling with strikers. Plus he faces WBA and he’s cheaper. This may change next gameweek of course

                        1. Ha.
                          • 5 Years
                          2 months, 18 days ago

                          It feels as if City are underperforming and as soon as they start firing I don’t think it can be anyone other than KDB.

                        2. FPL_Motty
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                          2 months, 18 days ago

                          Indeed, in 2gws time though its city who have the fixtures. And if they play well today and start a run you will think otherwise. City have been struggling attacking wise but I think having Jesus back makes a huge difference, KDB has been on fire since hes been back, but they needed that shape and looked a different team when Jesus played midweek. I also love Bruno as well for his single mindedness at producing brilliance to drag his team along.

                          Yes logically but this season has proved me wrong most of the time, luckily it is now getting closer into 'normality'

                      Everyone in my ml has captained Kane and just me on Son. A lot can change for me in this game!

                      Keep 1:

                      A) Son (he could be more explosive against attacking teams with more space? and cheaper)

                      B) Kane (on pens obviously)

                        B

                        Kane will also get more minutes over the Christmas period

                        Reguilon to Coufal and roll. Use the funds for two moves for GW10, probably involving Mitchell to City D and Son to City M

                        Other than Struijk (who's a trap), nope. Just hold Mitchell and hope he replaces Clyne when fit, or get some cash by dropping him to 3.9

                          Could do with banking the 0.1m. I was hoping Ferguson would be back by now.

                      Guys, do you think Burnley can survive? Looks like bitter ending for Sean Dyche...

                          2 months, 18 days ago

                          Teams like Fulham and WBA are a lot worse so Burnley have a chance of staying up

                          2 months, 18 days ago

                          With Westbrom Fulham and Sheffield United in the league they have a good chance yes

                          Yep still got a chance. Despite not picking up results they have improved defensively continuously for several weeks now. Can't see fulham or WBA achieving any defensive consistency like Burnley can, so Burnley will grind out some results and ultimately just survive I believe.

                            So stressed please help hah.

                            Martinez

                            Cresswell Zouma Kilmann

                            Fernandes Salah Son Zaha Grealish

                            DCL Kane

                            Tottenham has such a bad fixture coming up so I'm thinking taking Son and Kane off and replace with Ziyech and another striker then bring KDB/Sterling in as Man city have amazing fixtures, however Fernandes Salah Zaha Grealish all have really good fixtures too so I have no idea who to take off and bring KDB. Is it worth bringing KDB? shall I just keep Son and Kane in since they are good with stronger sides by counter-attacking? HELP! so Confused!

                              When confused, roll FT

                              You can't have them all. I'd be more concerned about your defence, which turns dark red for fixtures by GW10

                              Personally I would wait 2 gws until city fixture swing. Keen Kane, drop Zaha and fund son > KDB
