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.

        What do you guys think;

        A. Saiss to Cancelo
        B. Kane to Vardy
        C. A & B for a hit

        1. King Drogba11
            2 months, 7 hours ago

            I’d go A and B, especially if you will captain Vardy over the next few weeks.

                Rashford?

                Two United whilst they’re stuttering may be too much?

                  But Podence is a problem? I was thinking between Podence to Jota or Son/Rashford to Salah/Kdb

          What would you do about Hamez?

          Could get any mid up to 11.5

          1. Pukkipartyy

            Surely KDB or Sterling.

          2. King Drogba11
              2 months, 7 hours ago

              Go to Sterling if you have nothing else to do.

              Hamez has two nice fixtures though where he could easily get returns.

              Or Cancelo If u decent bench cover.

              • 3 Years

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 7 hours ago

            Probably doing Kane -> Vardy (C). Definitely Semedo->Cancelo, the -4 should be paid off this GW. Shame Foden is still stinking up my team, though I would have 1.1ITB to replace him, I suppose, for another -4.

            1. fr3d
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 7 hours ago

              I regret not doing Foden to Jota (-4). This could be the week, but will monitor CL-minutes

            2. Shatner's Bassoon
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 7 hours ago

              At the minute I don't know how Guardiola can justify continuing to leave Foden out, City need something a bit different. Mahrez, Bernardo, Torres not really doing it...

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                2 months, 7 hours ago

                It's surprising to the fans too, Foden has shown real form so far.

            3. DannyDrinkVodka
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 7 hours ago

              Are you not tempted to start Foden this week?

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                2 months, 7 hours ago

                I am, that's why I'm hesitating. Just waiting to see CL minutes and surely, surely after 4 consecutive benching he starts a few. Very possible that I remove him though, at some point it may be better to cut losses and move on.

            4. claretparrot
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 7 hours ago

              I've been close to dumping Foden so many times.
              Other things have always taken priority, but I'm starting to think that's kind of the point. He's a punt but as the only one I have and at 6.5 I might just hold until WC. Start him every week and celebrate when Pep finally does the same!

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                2 months, 7 hours ago

                Fixtures are so good, surely if I've kept him this long then keep.... who knows 😆

                1. claretparrot
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 7 hours ago

                  If they both start, I'd genuinely rather have Foden than KDB minus 5mil. That thought is enough to make me hold on

          5. deathcabofdevil
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 7 hours ago

            Cancelo nailed on or will be benched if Mendy is back ?

            1. Concrete
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 7 hours ago

              See what the CL brings

              He’ll be rested over the next 5 anyway due to fixtures

            2. claretparrot
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 7 hours ago

              I'm going Dias so I don't have to think about this. Cancelo has to get an extra assist for every clean sheet he misses over the kind fixtures (assuming he does get rested once or twice). Dias also has decent goal threat so it isn't a completely boring alternative.

          6. Will J 256
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 7 hours ago

            What do you make of this -8?
            Kane, Zaha and Mitchell to Bamford, KDB (C), Dias/Cancelo?

            Worth it?

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 7 hours ago

              Zaha and Mitchell not starting so just a minus 4 really

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              Its hard to get rid of Kane for -8. But i like it 😀

            2 months, 7 hours ago

            Any feedback on best approach here - I'm losing Rashford for KDB, which means i'm -0.2m. Therefore need to downgrade one of:

            Foden
            Kane

            Current thoughts- foden game time a risk but a risk perhaps worth taking given fixtures
            Kane an easier downgrade to DCL or Vardy?

            Many thanks as always

            1. shiraz
                2 months, 7 hours ago

                Whose your other mid? I would think downgrade kane for better options, as there aren't any better 5.0/6.0 mid

                  thanks! - other mids grealish Salah and Son, so don't massively want to get rid of those. Hence figured Rashford was the best one to lose for KDB

                Kane to Vardy is the vogue move on here, so wouldn't be controversial

                  Just seen you have Son, which makes Kane out even easier. Don't need both for those fixtures (I did Son out and kept Kane, which worked great...)

                  1. Thewonderfulgame
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 7 hours ago

                    Thanks- yeah i think kane's deeper position doesn't justify the huge outlay despite being on pens

                    Eze has appealed given palaced upcoming fixtures but palace seem hot and cold at the moment

                          Understand this, that why i have keep faith in rashford for 2-3 gw. But most of my friends in my ml have bruno, with bruno hauling double digits weekly and rashford blanking, i have to get him to at least not be left behind.

                        that defence needs work

                          2 months, 6 hours ago

                          Martinez is arguably the best value GK
                          Lamptey is a brilliant player, unfortunate to get a red
                          Saints have been great and KWP got another bonus point last night
                          Coufal kept a clean sheet

                          Chilwell Bellerin etc were incredibly lucky to keep clean sheets let alone get bonus points.

                          You would have more than 17m on your bench?

                        I mean it looks a good team on paper, but in terms of the red arrow:
                        1 clean sheet out of a potential 6 at the back
                        1 red card
                        2 Covid no shows
                        Zero bench cover/points

                        Hindsight is a wonderful thing, don’t go tearing it apart unless it’s part of the long term plan

                        Defence is part of it i guess. Total is below Robertson alone, digne got 8, lots of goalie got 4 or above.

                        1. Super Saints

                          I sold Robertson this week so I could afford Vardy, had him all season, sums up my luck!

                        I've had March for a while and am pretty happy.

                        Lundstram seems to contribute towards points, though in a poor team (at the moment). He was everyone's favourite last season.

                        Lookman...

                        Willock if you really want to gamble and feel Arsenal have to call on attacking returns from someone, at some point.

                            Might start, but even scoring without starting and cheap too

                      With Burnley seemingly looking like Burnley, and City struggling to score goals, maybe it's best to wait a week before loading up on City attackers and see how they perform.

                        Still worth getting defenders though.

                        Burnley get terrible results against Man City even when they look their best (check last few season's results). City's form is more of an issue but fixtures could help with that.

                      A) Son -> KDB

                        Son will be more key during counter attacks against good teams, Kane may do well but I see more potential for assists than goals in the counter for him

                        Zaha to Foden to have MCI in some fashion.
                        Zaha still has good fixtures, and De Bruyne usually needs two transfers.

                        I think Kane looks too good... returning a score in tough games, doing multiple things on the field... the top team right now, etc.
                        It's hard to part with, Vs KDB not doing the same.

                        Let's be honest, it's just about fixtures, because at their peak, there's not heaps between Kane and KDB.
                        I feel there's too much emphasis on fixtures, and at that price range, maybe there shouldn't be.

                        Probably the one who gets most minutes

                        Jota, because he doesn't have to build form or convince us further.

                        Both have great fixtures.

                      Morning all, best way to get Vardy and/or KdB in this side?
                      I feel like I want both!

                        With all that cash in the bank it isn't really an issue, is it? You could do Brewster to Vardy and still have the funds for Bruno to KDB

                          In fact that's what I'd do, but hold on the second move until KDB/City prove they're going to capitalise on the fixtures

                        I was going to do Son+Kane out to bring them in but feel like I'll regret it. So doing nothing for now.

                        Lose JRod (even Fulham have figured him out) and Harry (you still have Son - though obviously I'm not suggesting coverage, which doesn't exist)

                      Would you do this move for (-4)?
                      Kane + Maupay + Zaha -> Vardy + Bamford + Ziyech

                        Why not just Maupay + Zaha out and save 4 points?

                        Could be a big trap. Would really be wise to wait and see if City's form improves first

                      Already on (-4), Barkley and Jimenez to Jota and Vardy(C).

                      Kane DCL Vardy(C)

                      Not keen on playing Bissouma for a 2 pointer, but the alternative is Charlie Taylor. 0 ITB.
