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.

    Ben's getting sloppy now, that ManCity 27 double should be in yellow.

    Semedo goal threat

    Meslier was the one to captain...

  7. estheblessed

  8. OleBall
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Raphinha > Pereira for DGW26 wyt?

      Don't see many better options in that price bracket

      You just know that Bruno is going to outscore Bamford this week lol.

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Comfortably

        1. TOPCAT1960
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Regretted putting the armband on Bruno, but looking good choice i think.

      2. GE

        2 months, 26 days ago

        I know, but all others are captaining Bamford, so hedging

    • ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 11 Years

      Tyler roberts and Shackleton are awful

        I’ve been a long suffering lifelong fan for nearly 40 years of the Welsh National team. Tyler Roberts is simply not up to it at this level.

      Who to lose for Kane?
      (Max 4.5 def in)

      1) Digne
      2) Dias (have Cancelo)

    • AnfieldLad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      All wolves do is shoot. Get within 30 yards and they’ll shoot. This game already looks like a 0-0

      Congrats double Leeds defense owners

      Tyler Roberts being hooked at HT might make or break the DGW.

      Raphina with a rubbish shot

      Is Harrison reed (Fulham) 4.4 mid nailed? I got him in on my WC 2 mins before deadline but am not sure if he will get me 4 points on BB

        I'm not smart enough to do something like that.

        1. TOPCAT1960
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          ohhhh but the tears when Neto scores lol

          1. Camino Aleatorio
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Yeah, but Stuijk is a threat. He's a secret Soucek. Go look at the numbers.

            Dallas can score too.

            The U-10 goalie will at least get tons of saves, even after conceding

            But yeah, tears if some soft PK is issued....or worse....

            If Biesa orders a goal be given to the opponent, like he once did

            OOPs

            Or the own goal, worse than a Neto Goal

      BB GW38 anyone?

      Happy with my planned 11 for the doubles and hits for the bench seem a waste.

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Notoriously messy GW.

        Seasons over for many, kids given a run out. Would have it used before then.

      2. Hulk Smash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        It's typically the hardest GW of the season to predict teamsheets.

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

        Lots of teams with nothing to play for

    • MOZIL
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I have exact fund to transfer antonio > Kane, Bamford > Brewster

      Should i do the transfer now to avoid the prices change?

    • Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Who would you rather downgrade to afford Kane next week?

      A) Alonso
      B) Stones (own Dias)

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

        It is so frustrating that you can't be sure that Alonso will start. Hopefully he plays tomorrow.

      So far my wc in dgw24 has worked well, had 8 x dgw24, 4 x dgw25 and so far 11 x dgw26, fh & bb & tc to come and I imagine I'll use bb in dgw25 (unless anyone suggest different ?). Only mistake was (c) Sterling when I stared at my wc for the last 5 mins of gw24 contemplating Gundogan instead of Sterling - BIG mistake
      Bamford (c) this week
