Meslier missing for Leeds as Alioski starts at left-back again

Illan Meslier (£4.7m) is the latest Fantasy Premier League goalkeeper to go missing in Double Gameweek 19 – and we’re only a few hours into the latest round of fixtures.

The Leeds United shot-stopper is absent from their squad today with Kiko Casilla (£4.2m) handed a first Premier League start of the campaign.

That will worry owners of Leeds defenders after the Spaniard turned in a poor performance against Crawley in the FA Cup.

However, their back-four has retained some consistency from their last league outing. As predicted, Ezgjan Alioski (£4.5m) keeps his place at left-back with Liam Cooper (£4.3m) the only fit-again centre-back returning to the team.

Diego Llorente (£4.4m) returns on the bench, allowing Luke Ayling (£4.5m) to continue his stint in the middle and Stuart Dallas (£4.8m) is at right-back.

Pascal Struijk (£3.9m) has been shifted from centre-back in light of Cooper’s return but stays in the team, this time to cover the suspended Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m) in defensive midfield.

Brighton come to Elland Road relatively short-staffed. In light of their absences, Ben White (£4.4m) starts in midfield again, forcing Graham Potter into including Dan Burn (£4.2m) in the back-three alongside Adam Webster (£4.4m) and Lewis Dunk (£4.8m).

Neal Maupay (£6.1m) returns to the side, paired with Leandro Trossard (£5.7m) up-front.

Key Double Gameweek assets are installed nicely in the West Ham side to host Burnley.

Lukasz Fabianski (£5.1m) overcomes his pre-match doubts to start ahead of Darren Randolph (£4.4m) while Michail Antonio (£6.3m) leads the line following Sebastien Haller‘s (£6.1m) sale to Ajax.

    2. Pukki Blinders

      How does Zaha not playing affect KDB?

      1. Corgzzzz
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        KDB wont get sent off for getting the cheating diving clown kicked..........

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Could mean that they can focus on attacking because Zaha can't do them on the counter

    3. TomSaints
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      10 months, 22 days ago

      Cancelo (c) even better. If only I had strength in my convictions!

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Surely that means Palace would just defend more?

    5. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      That just means Palace are going to park a double decker at the Etihad.

      1. AC/DC AFC

        Are you feeling confident of a Liverpool goal fest against United and Burnley?

        1. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          I'm confident enough to TC Salah. As for how many they'll score, we'll see!

      2. REDMOND IN SANDALS
          10 months, 22 days ago

          they were never going to play expansive football at Ethihad were they

      3. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        For sure?

      1. Herman Toothrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Giroud starts.

        Poor Lateriser

    14. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Benhrama off. Should have been Bowen.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Owning Bowen is so frustrating

      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      What's the ownership of West Ham defenders? Feel like everyone has at least one and some have two. Would be better if the CS gets wiped I guess if you have just one

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        nah i want points

      Damn this place should really have a pitch report as a weekly article. If I knew there would be a potato field in Leeds to ruin the silky play of Bamford I would have taken the hit to remove him.

      1. ppv
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Silky play of Bamford. Oxymoron surely

      • 2 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Don’t worry if Wood doesn’t score this game he will definitely score next game against Liverpool right?

      1. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Against their non existent centre backs I’d fancy his chances more yes
