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.

      I knew I should have gone triple Burnley defense.

      1. GROBARI
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 12 days ago

        I feel you,me too

  11. NABIL - I sold TAA GW3
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 12 days ago

    Am I the only one starting Dallas?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 12 days ago

      He will be BBed by many

      1. NABIL - I sold TAA GW3
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 12 days ago

        Not fair!

    2. BremerHB

      9 months, 12 days ago

      Dallas, Raphinha & Bamford starter here...!

      1. NABIL - I sold TAA GW3
        • 9 Years

      A few ML rivals have him - won't get a CS with that keeper behind him.

      1. NABIL - I sold TAA GW3
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 12 days ago

        That's what you think 🙂

  12. Jellyfish
    • 9 Years

    Is Baily nailed for MU?

    1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 12 days ago

      Yes, until he inevitably makes a mistake

    2. Dannyb
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 12 days ago

      If fit then yes

    3. Ibra
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 12 days ago

      No, he isn’t. Lindelof has been good this year and Ole will rotate Bailly and Lindelöf

  13. Bookkeeper
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 12 days ago

    now fingers crossed Antonio makes it to HT

  14. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Which game should I watch? Purely for entertainment, not fpl

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 12 days ago

      Has to be Leeds!

    2. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 12 days ago

      lol at not having triple W Ham

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 12 days ago

      Always Leeds. Alas I have 3 Hammers and a White on the bench, so it's the wrong one for me!

    4. yalala
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 12 days ago

      But fpl is entertainment, right?

  15. Steve The Spud

    So many keepers out, only the nipple is safe

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 12 days ago

      How do you know he is safe?

  16. mookie
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 12 days ago

    How much alcohol/weed do I need to watch football when I missed the deadline, burned a FT and have Bamford captain?

    1. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 12 days ago

      Change your name to Rookie

      1. mookie
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 12 days ago

        "Someone else already uses this display name, please choose another."
        This made me feel a little better.

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years

      I have no words...

    3. Kun Tozser
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 12 days ago

      Less than I did last week forgetting to activate my WC after doing all the transfers

    4. CRO KLOPP
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 12 days ago

      As much as you didn't miss the deadline

    5. yalala
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 12 days ago

      I mean if Bamford smashes three in over the next 80 minutes, you might even be ahead. I suggest you roll up a fat one

  17. Dele
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 12 days ago

    Horrendous GW already... no Johnstone! Might as well quit.

  18. Little Red Lacazette
