Bamford, Raphinha and Dallas star in Leeds’ audition for Double Gameweek 25

LEEDS UNITED 2-0 CRYSTAL PALACE

  • Goals: Jack Harrison (£5.4m) | Patrick Bamford (£6.7m)
  • Assists: Stuart Dallas (£4.8m) | Raphinha (£5.3m)
  • Bonus: Dallas x3 | Illan Meslier (£4.7m) x3 | Harrison x1 | Liam Cooper (£4.3m) x1

Leeds put on a convincing performance to comfortably see off Crystal Palace 2-0 on Monday evening.

Patrick Bamford (£6.7m) and Raphinha (£5.3m) once again delivered attacking returns and are set to receive added attention ahead of two fixtures for Leeds in Gameweek 25.

But the same cannot be said for Crystal Palace, who looked completely out of ideas without their talisman Wilfried Zaha (£7.1m)

TOP PAT

Bamford’s display epitomised why he delights and frustrates FPL managers in equal measure.

Still priced at a modest £6.7m, Bamford was good value for his goal and had the most attempts on goal and shots in the box throughout the game.

But as shown by his attempts, he really should have added to his tally, skying a one-on-one after knocking the ball past Gary Cahill (£4.5m), and miscontrolling a through ball expertly put through by Raphinha.

Still owned by more than half of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers, Bamford looks good value for his price and could start delivering more double-digit hauls if he can find a more clinical edge.

A keen FPL player himself, Bamford revealed he was kicking himself after missing his first chance.

I captained myself. After I missed that one in the first half I was kicking myself so I am glad I scored.

Patrick Bamford

Pundits and FPL players alike who predicted Bamford’s early-season form would come to a halt have been left with egg on their face.

The Elland Road striker and his teammates have shown incredible consistency this campaign, with Bamford having the most attempts, shots in the box, and big chances of all forwards this season.

With Bamford proving he can sustain this level of form, his high ownership could still rise with the Double Gameweek on the horizon.

Players with Bamford may even be looking to double or triple up on assets from Leeds’ impressive attack.

AN ALTERNATIVE?

 1

Despite not coming away with any of the bonus points, Raphinha was arguable the best player on the pitch last night.

The Brazilian offered a huge goal threat, bettered only by Bamford, and deserved a lot more than the one assist he came away with.

As well as Bamford’s chance, a wicked set-piece delivery from Raphinha should have been put away by Pascal Struijk (£3.9m), who was guilty of missing two clear chances.

The £17m signing is now stamping his influence on the team, with two goals and three assists in his last four games, and eight returns in nine.

Not even Bamford can boast more FPL points over the same period, and no player in the game has created more goals in the last six Gameweeks.

While Bamford has attracted a 50.1% ownership, Raphinha has stayed largely under the radar.

Despite his impressive run of form, his price has even dropped twice over the last five Gameweeks.

At £5.3m and with 2.3% ownership, he offers a fantastic route into covering Bamford’s points for those who have missed the boat

Also, owners of Bamford may even want to consider doubling up on two of the game’s most in-form players.

OOP BANKER

Stuart Dallas (£4.8m) recorded maximum bonus points for the second time this season to add to his assist in creating Leeds’ first goal for Jack Harrison (£5.4m)

Marcelo Bielsa’s tactical tweak in moving Dallas further up the pitch has made him even more of a threat going forward than he was at full-back.

As well as setting up the goal for Harrison, Dallas showed he wasn’t afraid of taking on a shot, hitting two from outside the box.

Even with Leeds’ woes at the back, Dallas’ points haul puts him fourth overall out of all defenders in the league, and above highly owned options such as Ben Chilwell (£5.9m) and Andy Robertson (£7.3m).

Leeds’ defensive displays this season, where they have accumulated the second-highest expected goals conceded rating (xGC), will be enough to put some managers off investing in their defence.

But Dallas has the attacking potential to offset this, coupled with a good run of fixtures.

Bielsa’s post-match comments – see below – also perhaps hinted at a renewed focus on defence going forward.

MARCHING ON TOGETHER

What was expected to be a close game turned out to be anything but, with Leeds running out comfortable winners.

Their excellent attacking play has been on display all season but their solid defensive work against Palace caught the eye.

Monday night’s game saw them restrict the visitors to only three attempts on target.

Palace also finished the game with an expected goals rating (xG) of 0.36, which compared to Leeds’ of 1.92, shows how dominant they were in victory.

Speaking after the game, manager Marcelo Bielsa said it had been a target to keep a clean sheet.

We could have scored a few more goals. We defended well, we conceded very few chances, the performance of the team was even and constant.

(A clean sheet) was an objective for today. It was very important we didn’t concede a goal today.

Marcelo Bielsa

The only bad news coming out of the game was midfielder Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m), a vital part of their attacking and defensive play, limping off near the end of the game.

However, it will be hoped the injury is not too serious, with Phillips on his feet congratulating team-mates at full-time.

Even the most diehard Leeds fan will struggle to claim their side has turned a corner after facing one of the league’s worst attacks, without their most influential player.

But it could be worth keeping an eye on Leeds’ defensive displays in their next few games.

KNOWING ME, KNOWING YOU, ZAHA

Crystal Palace fans fearing their side would miss the influence of Zaha were proved right, as their side lacked any cutting edge to their play.

Taking Zaha’s place was loan signing Jean-Phillipe Mateta (£5.9m), partnering Jordan Ayew (£5.6m) up front.

But without Zaha’s ability to carry the ball up the pitch, Mateta was largely forced back into his own half to go looking for the ball.

Hodgson’s experiment of playing Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) further up the pitch also didn’t work, with the manager abandoning it at half-time.

Speaking after the game, a dejected Hodgson admitted his side were well beaten.

“We started both halves badly in terms of the goals we conceded. Both were pretty poor technical errors. You can’t afford to go 1-0 down after three or four minutes and then 2-0 down after 50 minutes and come away with a result unless you play outstanding football but we didn’t play outstanding football unfortunately.

“The bottom line for me is we didn’t pass the ball anywhere near well enough and we have to accept that we lost to the better team. We were not able to pressurise them like they pressurised us. We are a passing team and when we don’t pass the ball well we fall below our standards. We were deservedly beaten but we made life difficult for ourselves.”

Roy Hodgson

With Zaha suffering from a hamstring injury that is likely to keep him out for the next few games, interest in Palace assets will be low.

Without Zaha, Palace have failed to score a single goal and have conceded nine in the four games he has missed, so their immediate future looks bleak, even with a favourable run of games coming up.

Leeds XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Ayling, Cooper, Struijk, Alioski; Phillips (Shackleton 88); Harrison, Klich, Dallas, Raphinha; Bamford

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; Clyne, Dann, Cahill, Mitchell; van Aanholt (Townsend 46), Riedewald, Milivojevic, Eze; Ayew (Benteke 76), Mateta (Batshuayi 65)

    Also noteworthy Ayling was back at fullback, where he actually has some attacking potential.

    1. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      but not really an option with Dallas playing OOP.

  3. Baines on Toast...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Raph is a popular differential but Harrison has 3 goals in 4, could be a good third option.

    1. FPLShaqiri
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Yeah it's strange the article talks up Raphinha but Harrison is only mentioned as a footnote. Both good consistent options.

    2. Neves say Neves
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I think Raphinha just edges Harrison because he's on set pieces

  4. Poison Apple
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    A. Brewster, Coufal -> DCL, Lowton

    B. Brewster -> DCL (3-4-3)

    C. Swap Antonio for DCL and play Coufal (4-4-2). Allows a straight swap DCL -> Kane for GW26.

    Current Front 3: Antonio, Bam, Brewster

    1. Silicon Vialli
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      C

  5. Zlatan F.C
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Thoughts on this gameplan. i have 2FT

      GW 24 - Robbo tand Coufal to Lowton and Shaw (will have 5 DGW players)
      GW 25 - Soucek to Raphina
      GW 26 - Antonio to Kane

      Martinez
      Dias Cancelo Coufal
      Soucek Grealish Salah Bruno Gundo
      Antonio DCL

      Forster Bamford Dallas Robbo.

      1. Flynny
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Good. And similar to me.

        Don't you worry that you'll need son ? Looks like spurs will have 2 plum games in dgw26

      2. Weasel Boy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Seems decent.
        You saving your WC?

    • Klip Klopp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Foden has served me well but do you think I should do Foden to Gundo for free?

      1. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Gundogan is certainly the safer pick.

        Whenever you think Foden has played himself in to the team, he's back out of it.

      2. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Yes

    • ClothedinSun
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Am falling down the ranks like a lead weight with this lot, mainly through poor captain picks and hits - any thoughts on what to do for the DGW are appreciated:

      Pope,
      Cancelo, Dias, Cresswell,
      Maddison, Bruno (VC), Soucek, Foden (C),
      Kane, DCL, Ings

      Areola, Grealish, Dunk, Rudiger.

      (* Kane came in for WIlson and Foden has come in for Pereira this GW)

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I'd far rather Pope over Foden for the armband.

        1. ClothedinSun
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          This was the original plan but somehow I convinced myself that it felt like more of a gamble to captain a gk over an outfield player!?

      2. DK_13
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        You used your transfers and nothing is worth a hit anymore.
        I guess play rudiger over soucek and rest looks fine

        1. ClothedinSun
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Nice, Cheers!

        What’s obvious here is the lack of Justin, Leeds players, not replacing Kane, no having Son, Antonio, Watkins, having Ings in your team.
        Don’t know what to do really.

        1. flynner25

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        A GW26 BB looks impossible atleast for me with an average Team Value if I want Salah, Bruno, Kane & Son in my team.

        Will have to sacrifice one of them for BB but then it makes it tougher getting one of them or KDB back later.

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Double Spurs are far from essential. Spurs have scored fewer goals than the likes of Leicester, Chelsea, and Leeds, and only as many as Villa (who have played a game less).

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            But none of the attackers from those have the goal involvement that Kane & Son have for Spurs thus they are outscoring players from those teams by 40+ points.

            1. Major League Shocker
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 2 days ago

              They did great in the first 6 GWs. Since then, their scores have been matched by much cheaper players. For example, from GW7 to now, Son has 86 points, while Soucek has 90 points.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Even with high team value I can't afford Salah, Bruno, Kane and Son.

          I have to either seriously restructure or lose one.

        Pat & Stu have been such a pleasure to own this season. Phenomemal PPM since I got them and so reliable.

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Yeah I’ve had them both for a while and it’s been brilliant.

        RMT tool really hates Gundogan, still seems to think he is far from nailed (expecting him to play barely 50% of available minutes over the next few) despite starting all of the last 11 league matches and only subbed off 3 times (once before 60).

        Would be nice if it gave a reasonable prediction for his score relative to other captain picks.

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

          Who cares about the RMT tool. I think it's one of the worst features personally. Form and performance fluctuate so much in a season that a terrible pick one season or at one time could look amazing at another time.

          Who would've thought Gundogan is gonna be probably the top captaincy pick this week?

        2. Baines on Toast...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          I would really, really like if we could customise predictions for certain players. I love how the tool works but hate most of the outputs.

          It'd be more useful as a 'I predict this player will score X, what is the right decision'.

        Good day good people!
        Is this correct order for the upcoming GW?

        Pope

        1. Silecro

            can choose two haha so is A + D, how about if Taylor is not out?

        Score predictions for the two Man City games in DGW24?

        1. King Kohli
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          2-0 in both

        2. Champione
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          City-Spurs: 2-0
          Everton-City: 1-2

        3. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          2-1 beat Spurs
          2 nil beat Everton

        4. Count Your Blessings
            2 months, 2 days ago

            1-1 vs Spurs
            1-3 (win) vs Everton

            1. Major League Shocker
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 2 days ago

              I'm thinking 1-1 as well, City always seem to struggle against Spurs even if they dominate on xG.

              Think they will keep a CS against Everton though. 0-3 for me.

              My free will be to do Mitchell to Lowton I think so will have to be for a hit. I think I'll do it

            Not worth it for a hit

              Why not? Looks strong over the next 2 don't you think?

            do are you WC in 25?

              great English, are you wildcarding in 25?

          I have BB, WC and FH left.
          What would be the best strategy here?

          A. BB 24, WC 26, FH 29
          B. WC 25, BB 26, FH 29

          Currently have 3 players for dgw 24(4 if Taylor starts) and 3 players for dgw 25.

          Meslier*
          Cancelo* - Stones* - Taylor*
          Gündogan* - Son - Fernandes - Salah
          Bamford* - Antonio - Adams*
          (Martinez - Soucek - Coufal - Konsa)

          1. Champione
            • 5 Years

            B

            1. King Kohli
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Not tempted to BB this week and go with a light bench on the WC?

              Forgot to mention have 2 FT still to use for this week

              1. Champione
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 2 days ago

                think that all the moving of games lately have shown the importance of a strong squad. Prefer having one or two good players on the bench for each gw

        7. Champione
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Worth a bench boost? Anything worth a hit?

          Martinez
          Dias Digne Mee Shaw
          Sterling (C) Gundogan Lookman Bruno Rashford
          DCL

          McCarthy Ings Watkins Targett

            Ings over Shaw for upside.

            I dont hate the BB either

            1. Champione
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              yeah agree, Ings has to be in the eleven

          FanTeam is just as interesting for FPL for this time period. What would you do here with 2FTs?

          Martinez Sanchez
          Cancelo Dias Rudiger Robertson White
          Salah Fernandes Son Gundogan Grealish
          Rashford Antonio 4.0

          I have a little bit ITB.

          What's a bigger priority? DCL or Pope?

          1. Champione
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Sterling, doing Salah > Sterling this week. Has to take the risk on that upside imo

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              nice, i'd have flash backs of Sane TC a few years back in the doubles

        11. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Would it be fair to say the captain option comes down to Pope v Gundo this week?

          I think my rival brings in DCL for free but won't armband him.

          Pope V Gundo captain

          Who wins?

          1. Champione
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Gundogan

          2. sirmorbach
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Either DCL or Gundo for me, wouldn't captain Pope. His ceiling isn't as high as theirs, the way I see it.

          3. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years

            I think Sterling is the best captain this week.

            1. Stupendous
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              I've been wanting him and posted an option below

        12. sirmorbach
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Any help would be much appreciated:

          Pope
          Dias, Stones, Digne, Cresswell
          Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Gündogan
          DCL, Antonio

          Martinez, Watkins, Dallas / Soucek

          Can I afford to hold my ft? Maybe Watkins to Bamford? Stones to Cancelo? (I'm willing to keep Soucek, I guess)

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            Hold FT then get Bamford in and maybe Raph/Ings next week

          Benching boosting:

          Is it worth -4 for Kilman > Lowton?

          Kilman seems likely to start for SOUa

        16. sirmorbach
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Who to bench?
          A. Cresswell (SHU)
          B. Watkins (bha)
          C. Grealish (bha)

          1. King Kohli
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Impossible to call but Watkins

          2. Hadebayor Mum
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 2 days ago

            I have to bench 2 of Cresswell, Soucek, Antonio, Grealish and Watkins. Thinking of spreading risk by one from each team, but which two I've no idea. Maybe Cresswell and Soucek. Usually I'd recommend benching the defender but Brighton have improved defensively so toss up Grealish and Watkins.

        17. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Would you lose Stones to get...

          Cancelo Gundo Sterling?

          Basically Stones out, Sterling in

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

            I was thinking similar but not sure tbh

            Gonna see how my team looks for dgw 26 after cup games then decide if that move would be a waste of an ft or not

          2. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            I've been playing with this all day and can't come up with something good. It ruins my BB26 no matter how I wriggle it. The other option is to just BB in 24 anyway with a slightly weaker set and then adapt going forward.
