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.

    Went to Vardy instead of Antonio, well done owners

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Vardy can still score.

    2. Ron_Swanson

      fishing surely

  4. GROBARI
    • 1 Year

    4 more goals pls Antonio

  5. Heisenberg W. W.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    That's why Antonio was a no brainer regardless of whether he will last the full 90 or not.

    1. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      and yet not really

    2. have you seen cyan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Sure, we will see when Antonio limps off

  6. Salah’s Sonnet
    • 10 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Of course Antonio scores, i mean of course

    1. Cok3y5murf
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Of course you’re moaning again, I mean of course

      1. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 15 days ago

        and yet not nearly as anywhere near a fraction as most do on here, but of course, you point me out, of course, move along

      2. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 15 days ago

        lol love how any likes this is getting, pathetic

    2. DycheDycheBaby
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Well yes...what were you expecting?

      1. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 15 days ago

        an injury to the fool

  7. evilfish

    You beautiful man!

  8. Baps hunter

    Omg 🙁 I am so casual, I transferred Kane for Antonio and didn't give him armband.

  9. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Jammy casuals with Antonio ffs

    1. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      indeed, so lucky

    2. Baps hunter

      😉

    3. Tango74
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 15 days ago

      I picked him and I’m not a causal thanks

    4. doher.ty
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 15 days ago

      How is this jammy? If you brought him in and he scored it’s all good. It’s not like Salah misses two games and Antonio comes off the bench.

    5. Ron_Swanson
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      you are a casual!

    6. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Antonio is many things but a casual pick he is not. Started the week at 3.6% ownership and now up to 8.5%.

    7. DycheDycheBaby
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Casuals are the ones who don't have him.

    2. Catastrophe
      • 10 Years

      2. Catastrophe
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 15 days ago

        That would have been a no-brainer for anyone!

    3. doher.ty

      You can always stop

    4. Lev Yashin
      • 8 Years

      You could always decide to quit.

  20. Brosstan
    • 7 Years

    Looked like Tarkowski has Antonio in his team. Pathetic defending from a pathetic player in a pathetic team.

    1. doher.ty

  23. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Are Antonio points even beneficial?

    Surely all serious players own him...

    1. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      And to think, bringing him in for a hit was only worth -2pts

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 15 days ago

        😛

    2. doher.ty
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Ownership is still low

    3. Zladan
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      I think you’d be surprised!

      Many had other priorities: KDB, Salah, Cancelo...

    4. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      8.5% owned, that isn't everyone, not ebem 10% of everyone

      1. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 15 days ago

        even*
