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.

    Just create one more chance Raph, c'mon lad

    1. Gudjohnsen

      Or assist or score

    Respect to Traore for not celebrating vs former club

      He never played for Leeds

    Good example of how a double GW can get you carried away. How many would have captained a Leeds player at wolves away in a single? So you just get the single Soton game where they could also easy get beat

    1. Bruce Lee
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Not really... 4 pts this game on top of Saints game

      No matter what happens, the choice is right because Bamford plays 180 mins vs just 90

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Kane scored more than all other double GW players GW19

        1. Bruce Lee
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Do you understand probability?

          Will Kane now outscore every DGW player ever now?

            • 5 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            I’m just thinking wondering which is best two small chances or more one big chance?

          You’re looking at this in hindsight....captaining a Leeds player made total sense

      You donkey

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA

        Thanks. Was just trying to consider my view might have been too heavily influenced by the double GW.

    3. Pat Bonner

      Surely a single player could blank as well. Whole point is you get 2 bites at cherry

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        I’m just saying it’s two bites at a very small cherry. Or one bite at a large one

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          So who would you have captained? Bruno? He’s not even played yet

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            I’m not saying I would have got the captain right, I’m just saying that I myself ruled out a lot of options and just went with the double GW player. Same could be said for Ings (who I own and the only other captain I considered). There is a high chance he only actually gets one good game and good chance

            1. Pat Bonner
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              You need to pick who you think will score the most points, sounds obvious but it’s really as simple as that - whether they play 1 or 2 games. Leeds create a lot of chances and have 2 decent fixtures, one which is against the worst defence in the league currently. Personally I think it’s the right decision, everything after that is out of our hands

        Lol... Just lol

        No rubbish. You play the odds. Leeds players (and Soton) more likely to score well over 2 games than any other player with just one game.

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          But is it two small chances or one big chance is the point I’m making

          1. TwiggsJameson

            • 10 Years

            I think you are confusing bad outcomes with bad decisions 🙂 (Although if I'd played Meslier, it wouldn't be much consolation)

            1. AC/DC AFC
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              I think you're confusing remote decisions with a game where anything can happen, any time.

        There was never a guarantee of any return but there was a chance. A full game against Southampton to come so seems very premature this kind of post
