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? 🙂

    1. Limbo

      They all play again...

        7 months, 15 hours ago

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

    2. Coys96
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 15 hours ago

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

  3. Coys96
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 15 hours ago

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

    This season is relentless. My luck is awful

    1. THL33

    2. Pat Bonner

      Not getting the luck this season..could’ve been massive score

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 15 hours ago

      Your luck or your skill? 😉

      1. Coys96
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 15 hours ago

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

    4. Pumpy

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

      1. Coys96
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 15 hours ago

        Whatever. Very unlucky.

  4. camarozz

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

    1. FPL Pillars

      Happy he beat bamford

    2. Im New Here

      2 baps so the former

    3. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      yes I would be fuming

    4. TomSaints
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 15 hours ago

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

    5. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 15 hours ago

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

    unlucky raphinha cappers, could have been a haul any other day

    Raph doing kdb by getting 2bps without return

  8. MoSalad

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

    1. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

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

  9. Plagued by indecision
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 15 hours ago

    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?

  10. Niho992
    • 3 Years

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

    Even when not on commentary Steve McManaman still gets his sniffling on air.

    Everyone should sell Raphinha now guys. Keep selling. Tq.

    How the hell did Captain Raph not get an assist tonight!?

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 15 hours ago

      Because the team he plays in are largely donkeys.

  16. BeWater
    • 1 Year

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

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 15 hours ago

      If only he'd been quicker tonight

  17. DycheDycheBaby

    1.06 xGI involvement for Raphinha, highest of any player in the match

    God, you can see why English towns get ugly at kicking out time

  23. Huddersfield

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

    Did he perform like KDB vs WBA?

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      yup

      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
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 15 hours 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.

  25. RamboRN

  26. Danstoke82

    Now that’s over, who to lose for Kane?

    A) Ings
    B) DCL

    Thanks in advance!

    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!

    1. camarozz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 15 hours ago

      Me too actually. Only half time

    2. Im New Here
      7 months, 15 hours ago

      Agree

  28. Party time
    7 months, 15 hours ago

    We all captained Bamford because we are all sheep

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 15 hours ago

      Lol, if he scores 1 against saints it’s a decent haul, calm down

  29. wulfrunian
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 15 hours ago

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

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 15 hours ago

      Wait a second mate.

      Your team just won at real football.

      Or is that not a thing on here?

      1. wulfrunian
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 15 hours ago

        I am not kidding my self.Atm my captain on a dgw it's more important for me.

  30. camarozz

    Least I went Ings over Dallas. I'm quiet good at this game lol
