Dallas at left-back as Bielsa shuffles Leeds pack for trip to Wolves

Stuart Dallas (£5.0m) appears to have returned to the left-back position for Double Gameweek 25.

The Fantasy Premier League defender has recently spent a prolonged period in central midfield but Marcelo Bielsa has reshuffled for Friday’s trip to Wolves.

Tyler Roberts (£4.6m) joins Matheusz Klich (£5.2m) in midfield with Pascal Struijk (£3.9m) in the defensive midfield role vacated by the injured Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m).

Ezgjan Alioski (£4.4m) is the one who misses out as a result of Dallas’ positional change, with Jamie Shackleton (£4.8m) at right-back and Liam Cooper (£4.3m) paired with Luke Ayling (£4.4m) in central defence.

Captained by over 80% over the top 10k for Double Gameweek 25, Patrick Bamford (£6.9m) starts up-front with Raphinha (£5.4m) and Jack Harrison (£5.5m) providing the width.

Wolves are in a 3-4-3 formation for the visit of Leeds, which features Romain Saïss (£4.9m) and Leander Dendoncker (£4.6m) either side of Conor Coady (£4.8m) in the defence.

Jonny (£5.4m) and Nelson Semedo (£5.2m) are the left and right wing-backs respectively while Pedro Neto (£5.7m) and Adama Traoré (£6.0m) provide the width either side of front-man Willian José (£7.0m).

Double Gameweek 25 Line-ups

Wolves XI (3-4-3): Patrício; Saïss, Coady, Dendoncker; Jonny, Moutinho, Neves, Semedo; Neto, W José, A Traoré.

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Dallas, Cooper, Ayling, Shackleton; Struijk; Harrison, Roberts, Klich, Raphinha; Bamford.

      Not watching match and was just about to ask whether Bam Bam had been spotted. Disheartening.

      Raph banging in absolutely beautiful crosses but, much like the Zoroastrian religion, absolutely no conversion

        But it is a pre-cursor religion. All others are derivatives.

      Raphinha could already surpass Gundo's DGW haul. Unbelievable that he's still on 2 points...

      Good to see Jimmy out and about.

      Who's going to buy Raphinha at the end of the season? He could go to a big team. Or maybe Arsenal.

        Would be ideal for Everton so they can play a proper 4-2-3-1

        United. They'll be choosing between £30m+James for him, or £90m for Sancho. Guess who Woodward will choose!

        Do tell...how were we all stupid?

        Who did you captain and why?

        Not being a jerk, just want to see a different point of view?

    • Gudjohnsen

      Bamford choking on the pressure of captaining himself?

      Missed the WC/BB boat .. but at least WCing in GW26 gives better info on City players given they will play 2 matches before DGW26.

      Hopefully KDB will be up & running as he is easier to get on WC

        Cooper doesn't have himself in his own fantasy team. Bit of a clue there https://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/5630688/event/25

        This was my chance to make ground with Raphinha(C) and this happens. Just can’t win. Watch Bamford go and get a poxy goal now to top it off

          Martinez, Pope
          Cancelo, Stones, Mee, Coufal, Kilman
          Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Gundo, Raphinha
          DCL, Ings, Bamford

          1) Pope, Ings > Sanchez, Kane (-4)
          2) Mee, Ings > Ben White, Kane (-4) -- no room for price rises/falls here
          2) Grealish (if out) > Son
