Phillips boosts Leeds’ clean sheet potential as Arsenal fail to impress

Leeds 0-0 Arsenal

  • Goals: None
  • Assists: None
  • Red cards: Nicolas Pépé (£7.6m)
  • Bonus points: Ezgjan Alioski x3 (£4.4m), Hector Bellerín x3 (£5.1m), Bernd Leno x2 (£5.0m)

KAL-EL, MAN OF STEEL

The return of Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m) to Leeds United’s midfield appears to have boosted the credentials of the club’s Fantasy Premier League assets at both ends of the pitch.

The defensive midfielder, who dropped straight back into the holding role of a 4-1-4-1 formation against Arsenal, was missing with a shoulder injury between Gameweeks 6 and 8, a period where Marcelo Bielsa’s men were often carved open at the back.

During that period, they conceded, on average, 2.7 goals per game, the likes of Luke Ayling (£4.5m) reduced to zero-point hauls on more than one occasion.

Admittedly, there were a few cobwebs in his performance while Nicolas Pépé (£7.6m) struck the bar and Illan Meslier (£4.5m) was called into action to stop a runaway Bukayo Saka (£5.3m) in the second half. But the point still stands: Phillips’ first start since Gameweek 5 coincided with a first Premier League clean sheet at Elland Road Leeds this season.

It also means Leeds have let in just 1.5 goals per game when Phillips has been on the pitch this season, a significant improvement, despite matches against Liverpool and Manchester City.

The short-term upcoming fixtures for popular Leeds defenders are not particularly encouraging, as Leeds face Everton (away), Chelsea (away) and West Ham (home) between now and Gameweek 12. 

However, Phillips’ return should certainly make Gameweeks 13 to 16 appealing for his defensive colleagues, considering Leeds face Newcastle (home), Burnley (home) and West Bromwich Albion (away) during this period.

STUART MIDDLE

Bearing in mind the improved defensive potential at Leeds with Phillips back in the fold, Fantasy managers should take note of two developments in Gameweek 9.

Firstly, injuries to Pablo Hernández (£5.7m) and Jamie Shackleton (£4.8m), as well as a benching for Rodrigo (£5.7m), saw left-back Stuart Dallas (£4.5m) used in central midfield alongside Mateusz Klich (£5.6m).

“For me, [Dallas] is a very generous player, very brave. He participates a lot in the game. He doesn’t have a problem with either foot. He can play in the three different positions on the pitch: defending in the middle and in attack. Apart from that, he has one attribute which is the best you don’t see: that is a very good team-mate and an impeccable professional.” – Marcelo Bielsa

While the FPL defender did not quite hit the heights he is capable of at left-back, the fact he was deployed closer to goal had an impact on his Fantasy credentials.

In the second half, Dallas scythed through the middle of Arsenal’s defence and unleashed an effort that looked destined for the top left-hand corner of the net before Bernd Leno (£5.0m) tipped it over the bar.

His move into midfield also opened up the left-back berth for Ezgjan Alioski (£4.4m) again. The 0-0 draw with Arsenal was his third start in the last four, he has been present for two of Leeds’ three clean sheets this season and has picked up bonus points in both of them.

WHAM, BAM

As mentioned already, Phillips’ return to the Leeds team also had some impact on what happened in front of him.

Yes, Leeds failed to find the net against Arsenal, but it was not for lack of trying and they will certainly feel unfortunate not to have scored two or three times.

Dominating possession on Sunday, Leeds unleashed 25 shots on Arsenal’s goal, their highest tally since returning to the top flight and the most of any side without scoring since Manchester City’s 26 against Southampton in July. The Whites are also now only the third side to reach such a lofty shot tally this season.

Unsurprisingly, Patrick Bamford (£6.1m) was the spearhead for this free-flowing Leeds side, his total of touches inside the penalty box only five short of Arsenal’s tally as a team.

He pounced on a loose ball in the first half, his close-range effort forcing an impressive save from Leno, before his header on the end of an Ian Poveda-Ocampo (£4.4m) cross struck the post in the second. Certainly more than enough to warrant holding Bamford.

A debut for Raphinha (£5.4m), who came in for Hélder Costa (£5.6m) on the right flank of midfield, also provided plenty of excitement, the Brazilian hitting the post himself in the closing stages.

WHAM, BAM, AUBAMEYANG

By comparison, despite Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.7m) leaving behind the left flank for the first start as a central striker this season, Arsenal offered up nothing more than an uninspiring, turgid display.

They held onto only 33.7% possession against a newly-promoted side and chalking up two shots on target.

That might have been a factor in Leeds’ clean sheet, although the data still suggests they are better off with Phillips than without him.

Either way, Arsenal’s dreadful attacking performance is likely to turn the head of anyone invested in defensive assets at Wolves, Spurs, Burnley and Southampton, their next four opponents.

The encouraging start that Mikel Arteta’s men made to the campaign feels like ancient history already. They have only scored nine goals in as many league games this season, their lowest tally at this stage since 1986/87.

And it is in recent weeks that Arsenal’s lack of attacking spark has reared its ugly head. The Gunners have netted just once in their last five Premier League outings, scoring a penalty at Manchester United in Gameweek 7, failing to find the net against Manchester City, Leicester, Aston Villa and now Leeds.

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Alioski, Cooper, Koch, Ayling (Rodrigo 70′); K Phillips; Harrison (Poveda-Ocampo 80′), Dallas, Klich, Raphinha; Bamford.

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Tierney, Gabriel, Holding, Bellerín; Xhaka, Ceballos; Willian (Nelson 46′), Willock (Saka 57′ | Maitland-Niles 90+3′), Pépé; Aubameyang.

              Was going to happen this GW but Salah got flagged and had to get Bruno in this place.

                  yes and other players in your team may get injured, DCL may get injured in training or catch Covid ... so why not wait until later in the week ?

                      If he waits later then prices go up?

                        maybe but he has waited 9 gameweeks already 😉

                        unless a player is injured or being priced out is an issue then go for it, but if there is plenty in the bank why risk it ?

                        I go early with transfers if there are no midweek games, but tend to hold back a bit now with Covid.

                        I have lots of moves to make but now Zaha is an issue, and who knows some of my premiums may get injured.

                        ... but it’s more fun going early and getting a .1 rise for sure 🙂

                            Get jota ;). Yeah great feeling when you time the rise perfectly. Was funny last week when KDB rose unexpectedly and I got night before.

                              I want Salah and Vardy and was going to sell James Rod & Kane but now need to shift Zaha but am priced out by .2 with Kane & Zaha ...

                              Maybe I will get Jota & Vardy

                    City are overpriced and especially Aguero . But if you want to do it it's a massive differential that could pay off

                    Pep says he’s managing Aguero time. May play Jesus against weaker teams and come on as impact sub against better teams. And City struggling with structure in midfield

                  Not sure I trust Rashford. Upgrade to Bruno is straightforward but any way you can work towards Salah? Possibly not sensible but Chelsea have tough fixtures; could go to Jota?

                  You need some City there. Or Vardy.

                Vardy the right captain choice in this team? Any changes that the team needs?

                Leeds triple up for their great run of fixtures(after gw 12) with Dallas Bamford and one of Ayling Klich is out of this world

                  Wouldnt want to double up on Leeds defence, they will be very open during the easy fixtures

                    Bamford and one of Ayling/Dallas looks very very good.

                    Yes but I think that defence needs work, too many premium attackers but you can only captain one

                    Considering that transfer also. May hold for a week or two given Everton’s fixtures but undecided.

                  Any potential transfers here lads, probably want to keep enough itb for Sterling to Salah gw12, have 1.5 m itb now and 1 ft

                      Was looking at Podence to Jota but not convinced Jota will be a sure starter

                  Do I sell Rashford for...

                  A. Salah
                  B. KDB

                  I’d captain whoever I bring in.
                  - FYI I own Jota & Bruno.

                    I’d be tempted by KDB over Salah

                      It’s the old fixtures over form debate isn’t it. I’ll assess both midweek and make a decision after.

                      However KDB had Fulham. So I’d be looking to hold for 2 weeks minimum

                    KDB first, but I hope there is a plan for Salah GW12

                    Double-ups aren’t my thing, if it were my team I’d be getting rid of Richa and/or Dias/Cancelo. Looks good otherwise.

                      Richa will be gone in 2 weeks, though I think double City defence will be staying for a while given their long term fixtures... sea of green

                      Mane. Think he can exploit that right hand side of Brighton’s defence with no Lamptey

                      1. Flair
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        1 month, 29 days ago

                        Good choice. I'd have gone KDB but Liverpool offense looks excellent and Brighton's defense did not inspire confidence this weekend.

                    Looking to bring in Sterling this week for Zaha but not sure what’s the best way to get him.

                    A. Robbo to Coufal
                    B. Werner to Bamford

                      Not convinced by either of those transfers, both potentially turning a corner.

                      1. King Drogba11
                          1 month, 29 days ago

                          Agree, other option is Zaha to anyone below around 8m.

                          No standout options to me.

                              1 month, 29 days ago

                              And Bruno to Sterling.

                          You're losing better players in this scenario.

                        Anyone regretting jumping on Martinez? Got rid of McCarthy on my WC four weeks ago, who has scored 12 points more in the games since.

                        I thought Villa were meant to be looking solid at the back?!

                          Villa will never be solid in defence, they always fall asleep and switch off every 20 minutes

                          Villa will perform in games you don’t expect.

                        Cancelo and Jota good options if u good bench cover?

                            I think i go with this.

                            Martinez
                            Chill Zouma Creswell Cancelo Mitchel
                            Jota Grealish KDB Bruno Ziyech
                            Vardy DCL Brewster.

                            2m itb to get Salah for Bruno.

                              Double Chelsea defence with their upcoming fixtures? Would rather have a City def. And yeah I think your bench is decent enough to have both Cancelo and Jota

                              1. Pukkipartyy

                                Im rotating Zouma/Creswell. I want to have decent player on the bench this season. Zaha not playing yesterday was good example why.

                              Where's the good bench cover?

                                Creswell/Zouma i think that should be good enough. After that Brewster.

                                  It sure is, begs other questions though.

                          I think bench cover is irrelevant for Jota. If benched, he comes on.

                          1. Pukkipartyy

                            Thats true. He just got so good upside for his price. So hard to ignore.

                          Just Zaha out.

                        Want to shift Zaha & Podence out, annoyingly missed the price drop..

                        Who are my best replacements? Thinking of Jota & Soucek?

                          Grealish and Soucek? Jota only an option if you have a decent bench imo

                            Jota will rarely if ever sit out a whole match.

                              With the upcoming fixture congestion he might be used for UCL and rested PL, who knows

                            I already own Salah too, if that helps?

                              if you own salah why will you take jota.

                        Martinez
                        Robortson, Coufal, James
                        Bruno, Son , Zaha, Podence
                        Calvert-Lewin, Kane, Vardy

                        bank: 1.5m, FT: 1

                        My plan like son, robortson -> dias/Cancelo, kdb(-4)

                        Zaha also ill so planning to get Grealish for zaha -8 is it worth?

                          Not the -8

                          The -4 moves are fine moves

                            Thanks but podence and zaha cofused or zaha to jota instead of robortson?

                        How's this looking ?

                        Mendy, Button
                        Chilwell, Cancelo, Coufal, Targett, Justin

                        DCL, Vardy, Brewster

                        How to get Salah? Vardy to Watkins and James to Salah in gw12?

                          No way would I be getting rid of vardy for at least another 5 games

                        Chilwell cresswell Taylor Saiss Mitchell

                        A play Taylor at city
                        B hope Mitchell plays home to Newcastle
                        C sell Saiss for a hit

                          Probably C because other two options dont seem like fetting points

                        Who scores more over the next 2 weeks?

                        A) Vardy(c) vs FUL + shu (-4)

                        B) Kane (che, ARS)
                        (KDB/Bruno take the armband this week if no Vardy)

                        Will sell the striker in GW12 most likely to enable Salah in.

                          did Kane >Vardy party for free but wouldnt for a hit so I would say B in your case

                        How to fit Salah and/or Jota here?

                        Just got KDB and Ziyech, Grealish looks like a keeper, so Bruno and James to Salah and Jota? Which gameweek would be the best to do this?
