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.

      you can’t have them all 😉

      James to Jota this week

      Get Salah in GW12, but you will need to do something like Vardy & KDB/Bruno to Salah and Wilson etc

      1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        James and Bruno to Jota and Salah is the plan

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          go for it, I was doing James & Kane to Salah & Vardy but now have Zaha to deal with

          1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Too bad. Is he definitely out for gw10?

              not sure, I could risk holding Zaha ... may yet do that

              would give me
              McCarthy or Meslier
              Reguilon, Chillwell, Cresswell, Kilman
              Salah, Bruno, Son

    1. The Knights Template

      Yes, reveal the bench.

    2. Wakanda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      only one playable player , Brewster

    3. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      My suggestion is to get a cheap, playable bench for the imminent terrible xmas congestion. Right now, now, you can be that smart squirrel that hordes nuts for the winter.

  4. Do I Not Like Orange
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Beat the average by 1pt after deductions despite taking a -12. Feels like a win considering I no longer have crap like Saiss, Foden & Mitro stinking up my squad.

    1. The Knights Template

      What does it smell like now?

      1. Do I Not Like Orange
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Still have Burke & Mitchell lurking in the background, so it smells like a room that's been sprayed with air freshener after somebody's farted in it.

        1. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years

          So overpowering pot pouri with a hint of sulfur? You have work to do.

    D) Anything else?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year

      A no brainer

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years

      C looks a nicer longer term move, even for a hit.

    3. Shineonme

      A if not B

    Zaha to Jota and Kane to Vardy (-4)?

      Is Zaha out?

    2. OptimusBlack

      Yes and Vardy C

      1. The Knights Template

        Just Zaha out then.

    3. Shineonme
      • 4 Years

      Zaha is suspect

  7. Hryszko

    Everything points in Vardy's favour. Except the NPxG. Hmm.

    1. Wakanda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      why nobody considering Barnes/Maddison, Teleman

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Because BR is clueless.

        Not Vardy, though

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Uh oh doubting Sir Flair has shown up again! Stay true.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 5 days ago

        I'll have to re-watch DCL goals against Fulham, I'm sure the faith will flow back as I revel in how absolutely horrendous they are.

        1. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Late on against Everton they were so wide open, looked prime for vardy

    3. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      If you're just looking at last 4 matches then Vardy has the 3rd highest NPxg amongst forwards behind Bamford & Firmino.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Now even the NPxG is pointing in favor! Beautiful.

  9. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Dallas 5/6 points on bench. Again.

    When will I get lucky

    1. The Knights Template

      Play him, then you should be so lucky, as Kylie Minogue used to say.

          2 months, 5 days ago

          Please don't tell anyone I said this, but just between you and I, grab a Leicester mid for the next few weeks.

    When typing their team out, who automatically starts writing salah then realise he’s gone.

    It’s a sign.

  13. AC Yew

    Will Zaha be out next gameweek? Hes not flagged on the PL app. Currently got a full bench of non players which is tempting me with multiple hits!

    1. Tonyawesome69

      Flagged on the website. Difficult to know if out for next GW. Depends when he started isolation

  14. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    GW12 transfers, what pair would be better alongside KDB, Ziyech and Grealish?

    A) Salah, Jota
    B) Sterling, Jota
    C) Bruno, 7.8 mid

    1. No Professionals

      Salah, KDB/Sterling and Vardy are the popular players to bring in.

      I can bring in Salah or City mid if I transfer out Son using FT or a hit involving Rodriguez and Kane.

      I could also roll the FT and bring in both Salah and KDB in GW11.

      What is the best way forward?

                  Cancelo, My only concern though is i just read on one of the Man City articles on their site that they have 3 games a week now up until christmas. hopefully means Cancelo play prem league games and Zinchenko or Mendy can play the others.

                    3/3 wins in the UCL. Qualy pretty much wrapped up and expect him to be rested

          You know the risk. If KDB (C) then go for it

              Good enough for me, not that I needed convincing.

        Best replacement for Zaha?
        Martinez
        Bellerin, KWP, Chilwell, Kilman
        Zaha, Bruno, Rashi, Son
        Kane, DCL, Watkins

          Depends how much you want to use as a replacement. Jota is a popular pick. LEI mid could be a decent punt

        3. The Knights Template

        Martinez
        Robbo - Zouma - Kilman
        Son - Bruno - Jrod - Barkley
        Vardy (c) - DCL - Adams
        (4.0 - Targett - Soucek - Lamptey)

        Is there anything here worth a hit? I have just enough in the bank to do Jrod > KDB but might wait another week for that one, would need to be even money otherwise. Really want some City defence but not sure how to get in.

      7. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
        • 3 Years

        Is it worth bringing Jota for James for a hit? JRod's got nice fixtures so I'm thinking it is a bit sideways..

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year

          Very silly move imo

          1FT 1.8itb

          Martinez

          Chilwell / Semedo / Cresswell

          Grealish / Son / Bruno / Barkley*

          Maupay / DCL / Kane*

          Bench: Zaha / Lamptey

          1. Saka_me_sideways
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Which option:

              A: Barkley + Kane > Ziyech + Vardy

              B: Barkley + Kane > KDB + Bamford

              ... finger slipped and posted before I wrote that but lol

                • 7 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                Either OK but I'm keeping Kane.

                1. Saka_me_sideways
                    2 months, 5 days ago

                    Thanks, But I need the cash from somewhere and I just think both Kane and son with the games coming up is too much.
                    Past seasons I would of kept Kane out of the two, but Kane is playing too deep for my liking and son as effectively a No 9 is on for a 20 goal season at this rate.
                    In a perfect scenario I’d do Barkley + Maupay > Ziyech + Bamford, but I’m 0.3 short.

                  I think you need to sort Zaha, Anguissa, Dunne & Mitchell before Barkley*

                Could get max 11.5 mid in his place, no funds for KDB without downgrading a defender.
