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.

Double Gameweek 19 Line-ups

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Casilla; Alioski, Cooper, Ayling, Dallas; Struijk; Harrison, Klich, Rodrigo, Raphinha; Bamford.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (3-4-1-2): Sanchez; Burn, Dunk, Webster; March, Groß, White, Veltman; Mac Allister; Trossard, Maupay.

West Ham United XI (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Cresswell, Ogbonna, Dawson, Coufal; Rice, Soucek; Fornals, Benrahma, Bowen; Antonio.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; Pieters, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; Brady, Westwood, Brownhill, Gudmundsson; Wood, Barnes.

    Chelsea deserve to lose.

    1. tuturututu
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Why? Just because Frank did not pick players that you own?

      1. turd ferguson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        Exactly the reason

      This is the team they should always play with tbh. Azpi can actually defend, Giroud the best striker on the team. Just missing Zouma for Rudiger

      Why what has he done

  15. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Antonio earners now resigned themselves to benching next week with this 90 mins

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Thought you’d have more class than this Steve after your successful Tierney punt at West Brom

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 14 days ago

        Haha, just fishing, no chance of benching and he looks really good, going to be a force if he can stay fit

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 14 days ago

          I am surprised he’s still on, maybe cos 1 goal in it

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      No chance

  16. REDMOND IN SANDALS
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Souchek playing almost as a third Cb :#

    1. Zladan
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      That is his position tbf. His goals are as common as a CB. Up from a corner.

      I hope you know what you paid for.

      1. Kellz86

  20. Gobigorgohome

  21. Rainer

    Antonio still not off isn’t a great sign for Tuesday.

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Unless you don’t have him and are wary of more goals...

        Some day Bowen

    4. Hazz

      He's already paid off his hit (and who would have subbed in).

      Is what it is.

    5. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    A lot of the leaders in my money league played their WC this GW (after playing the FH last GW).

    I didnt play WC this GW. Hope this gives me leverage in the second part of the season.

  25. Gobigorgohome
    • 10 Years

    Yarmolenko on

  26. BeWater

    Bowen is absolutely infuriating even as a non owner. Seems to make the wrong decision most of the time.
