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.

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

                Amazon are so crap at broadcasting football this season. It’s like watching an illegal stream with all the buffering (100Mbps broadband btw). Why didn’t they wait until they had the network infrastructure to cope with the demand before entering the market? Really annoying.

                  Inexplicably spent their cash recruiting ally mccoist.

                    Ally does it for the ‘craic’. All he asks for is a 4 pack of Tenants in the green room

                  It's probs issue with the app on your TV. Maybe worth trouble shooting online.

                    Do you work for Amazon or something? Happens on all devices and I know other consumers have the same customer experience.

                      Nah sorry. I just read about it online when mine played up. Doing a hard reset etc may help it.
