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.

    So good time to bring up anyone who thinks FPL isn't a game of luck? 🙂

      They all play again...

        What I mean, is, you’re spread betting over 180 mins. Luck, yes, but the odds ARE better

    2. Coys96

      It isn't. But it plays a big part. Skill is more important, just about.

  3. Coys96

    Robbed again by Raphinha (c). Could've had 4 assists.

    This season is relentless. My luck is awful

        Your luck or your skill? 😉

          • 3 Years

          I think it'd be fair to say I proved my skill last season with a top 5k finish 😉

        How was you robbed exactly? Unlucky maybe but robbed is going a bit too far..

        1. Coys96
          • 3 Years

          Whatever. Very unlucky.

      As a Raphina (c) owner should I b angry or very very very very angry?

          Not angry as that performance showed it was a good choice. Chances were there just bad luck

        • Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year

          Super happy. 4 pts in a 1-0 loss??!?!?

        Raph C was the right choice just didn’t pay off.

          Yes that's right, zero points across two games confirmed.

        Rival didn’t change his team. Still has Gundo captain, and left Dallas on the bench. Thought ‘I’m quids in here.’

        Leeds fail. He has Bamford vc so will benefit from Gundo no show. How did Raphinha not score?

        Bamford in dream team for this GW so far. Hell yeah ! Stay there Bam Bam

          Because the team he plays in are largely donkeys.

          Shame Raphinha couldn't get on the end of his own crosses.

          Didn't watch the game. Just saw 2 BPS for Raphinha.

          Did he perform like KDB vs WBA?

            Hmm, if you were selling for a hit, then you should have done it this week imo (e.g. for Ings). But then I guess there's another transfer involved in option B, so it's hard to give a rounded opinion. I'd say A if you aren't using FH in 29. If you are, then I'm not so sure.

            1. _Ninja_
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              1 month, 23 days ago

              Cheers. No FH left. I just can't afford DCL without something like Coufal to Brighton which helps with 29 I guess.

              I'm doing Ings to Kane as well.

          Raphina captainer here. I appear to be the only one who's not angry or upset... He's gonna be on 8pts with another decent fixture and clearly good form. I'm staying optimistic!

            So frustrated as a Raphinha captainer.He could have at least 2 assists.He was playing alone.So poor performances from Klich and Harrison.

              Wait a second mate.
