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.

    Leeds being absolutely dominated. No clean sheet points for Dallas or Raphina that’s a certainty

      Or for Struijk who's on my bench

          I did it too. But then felt like an idiot. So started Stones and benched Struijk

      Oh ok, because they are renowned for their defensive displays...

      Congrats on your result last GW. Just saw your GW rank, that’s incredible

    All the chips left, when to play them?

      Same here, pretty relaxed about it.

      FH GW29, WC GW31 for the fixture swing.
      Use TC in GW26 or GW27 and BB whatever week you feel your entire 15 looks good.

      1. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Yup ... this is good advice.

    3. Lazaretti
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      FH29. BB maybe 26. WC maybe after 29.

      Atm having 11 DGW players (2x gk) maybe taking a hit to fix good BB team for 26

  4. AC Yew

    Just logged on to find i have 10 DGW players in my team next week. What a pleasant surprise

    1. KUN+10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Considering most big teams double, its not a surprise at all

  5. The Frenchie

    Any streaming website to watch the game?

    1. Thescaff

    Cooper misses a sitter

    Would have been a raphina assist

    1. Fred54

      Cooooooppppppaaaaaaa

      :Shakes fist:

  7. HaveYassineChikhaoui
      2 months, 26 days ago

      For DGW26:
      A) Vardy > Kane
      B) Fernandes & Bamford > Son & Kane (-4)

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Don't like either really

        1. HaveYassineChikhaoui
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Surely gotta get in Spurs assets for DGW26 +I need players for BGW29, so it just comes down to whether Son is likely to haul or not.

        For those like me feeling very underwhelmed with your BB next week check out gw30 fixtures. McCarthy has BUR, Dallas SHU, Rudiger WBA and Watkins FUL.

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Could WC29 BB30 work?

          1. Davros
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Yes

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Raphinha is currently my favourite player in the Prem. A joy to watch

      10. Davros
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Wow Bamford at 180% EO in top 10k. That has to be a record?

        1. Zilla
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Salah had higher EO before

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          And I captained Raph...could be devastating

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1. Fred54
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Neither.

          On the deadline.

        Triple Captain Kane or BB with Neto, Mee, Grealish?

          Would have to go -4 to get them all in with Kane

          Sadly I see it ending 1-0 Wolves to really burst the Leeds DGW bubble ... and as I’m holding three Leeds ... I hope I’m wrong.
