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.

    This is a terrifying game to watch with no players.

    Could be 3-3 already and Raphina on 10+ points.

    Neto looking good in his audition as cheap alternative 5th mids

      How is it you've ended up not having any Leeds?

      1. TomSaints
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Messed up wildcard a few weeks ago and brutalised by injuries. Decided it wasn’t worth any hits for this week as Leeds don’t have a double next week

    Tyler Roberts is horrendous wow

    Dallas nearly assisting Raphinha = nearly dreamland.

    Bamford limping?

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Very likely

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      No?

      Coady caught his ankle badly earlier, could Ben starting to swell.

    How bad is the Grealish injury?

    Back for DGW 26?

    1. Flynny
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      He has a stress fracture apparently. That sounds like more a month

    2. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Wow, is he injured?

  7. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Raphinha(C) looking good so far. Hopefully he’ll make it count soon. Can’t have these captain Bamford casuals getting a poxy goal

    1. Im New Here
      7 months, 9 days ago

      In the same boat. He's looking lively but I have an ominous feeling.

    2. dogtanion
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Yeah but so annoying no returns yet

  8. Flynny
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Grealish injury is a real spanner in the works for those not free hitting in 29.

    Need a replacement that doubles in 26 and plays 29. Can't afford son

    Wonder if El ghazi is now an option? Or dare u say it ross barkley. ..anyone else struggling with this? Thanks

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      3-4-3

    2. JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Martinez, El Mohamedy and Watkins is the best triple up

      1. Flynny
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        I have a spare midfield slot

        Bruno salah grealish gundogan raphinha

        Need raph for bgw29

        The obvious replacement is Barnes/ maddison but they don't play in 29....

        Interested in el ghazi if he starts instead of jack

  9. Jindaljain

    Bamford captain fail for everyone

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years

      Lookman

  11. Bushwhacker
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Q. In what parallel universe did I decide that getting 3 midtable assets was a good idea?

    1. Dirty Harry
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      So did everyone else

    2. GE
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Haha, 2 matches

  12. Dirty Harry
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Quick vote. Exact money for BB next week

    Bam + Raphinha + Coufal > Kane + Jorg + Rudiger (-8)

    13DGW + Ings + Dallas

    1. Shark Team
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Then you will want them back for gw29

      1. George Agdgdgwngo
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Not when you Fh29

      2. Dirty Harry
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Yeah thats GW27-29 plans.

        1. Shark Team
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 9 days ago

          I like Kane but I dont think the 2 Chelsea guys are gonna give you more than 8pts together in DGW26, so with the hit I think they won't return you pts

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      I have exact for Fernandes/Bamford/Antonio to Vardy/Kane/Jorginho

  13. Shark Team
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Alioski and Costa in for Shackleton and Roberts. Dallas CM

  14. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Meslier really impressing Southgate here.

  15. Finding Timo
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Hi Is There a reliable Source that grealish is Injured ?

    1. Shark Team
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      No, but 99.9% he is injured

      1. Finding Timo
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Ok cheers be gutted if out as I also have gundo snd Antonio so concerned about them already

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 9 days ago

          I reckon Gundogan plays.

    2. IRBOX ⚽
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      All rumours. Dean Smith was talking him up this GW. I think he is fine

      1. Shark Team
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        He isn't fine. Targett Taylor and 3 other staff members from AVL sold him in their FPL teams. There is no chance he is fine imo.

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      No reliable source.

      However with news of him not in training pictures, injury rumours beforehand and the below, big red flags:

      https://twitter.com/insider_fpl/status/1362841388795244556?s=19

      1. Finding Timo
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Oh!!

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        This.

        If i was a Premier League manager I'd ban FPL amongst my staff.

        Marginal gains to the opposition and all that.

    4. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      These 5 Villa may well be itk

      Losing Grealish - It will likely derail Aston Villa

      Martinez had been the little boy with his finger in the dam over the last 6 games even with Jack - they’ve conceded 6 goals, but about 100 times that amount of chances & have been blessed to keep those cleansheets

      Supply line to Watkins might dry up, less ability to keep possession putting the defence under (even more) pressure...

      Could be squeaky bum time for Villa unfortunately... or maybe not, who knows

  16. GE
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Madness to do Cavani, Soucek and Digne/Dias -> Kane, Reed and Lowton (-4) now?
    (can’t afford any price changes)

    Current squad:

    (2FT, 2.8 itb)

    Martinez
    Cancelo/Dias/Digne/Mee
    Salah/Bruno/Son/Gundo
    Cavani/Ings

    Bench: Messlier, Dallas, Soucek, Bamford

  17. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

    Poor half. Leeds look lethargic

    Tiredness kicking in

  18. Make United Great Again
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Well that was a crap half.

    1. Fred54
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Double Leeds defence would disagree.

  19. Duke Silver ☑
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Snoozefest. There's just something about Wolves games that are so dead.

  20. Bookkeeper
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Meslier in for a huge score here

    1. GE
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Nice

  21. Jurgen Flopp
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Bamford and Co very very poor.

  22. el polako
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Raphinia looked lively, assist by now would have been fair but we all know that fpl is anything but fair...

  23. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    HT

  24. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Wolves are twice as good in the 2nd half don’t forget

    1. Fred54
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      0 x 2 = 0

  25. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Should have just captained Bruno.

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Having forgotten to change my captain from Bruno I’m scared of the goal haul in the second half / second match

  26. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Surely we ALL know the real winners this GW surely?

  27. mynameisq
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Nuno ecstatic, halfway to his aim of boring everyone to death every match

    1. dogtanion
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      I think I hate Wolves more than any other team. Just horrendously dull

    2. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Him, Dychey and Maureen meeting up for some cheese and whine afterwards.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Throw Potter in there as well with his new effective 8-1-1 formation, and obviously Woy is already at the table

        Sheffield, Fulham, Newcastle, West Brom not much better

        Some god awful shite in the league tbf

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      You're learning well

  28. MOZIL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    I have the exact fund to get Kane in and there are no other ways of getting him in if i don't do it now

    should i do the transfers now to avoid the price change?

    1. fantasywizard
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      yes. i'll do the same today.

    2. Fred54
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      No, he could get injured again. Just wait.

    3. jason_ni
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      There is always another way!

    4. DK_13
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      If I were you I would go for it. Waiting and getting priced out might mean a hit. Him getting injured and needing to be replaced will also mean a hit. 2nd option looks better

  29. fantasywizard
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Dumb question probably but please help here:
    I have Cavani with Purchase price of 7.9. He is currently valued at 8.0 and will drop in price today. My selling price will stay at 7.9 correct?
    Thanks!

    If Bielsa subs of Tyler Roberts for anyone else Leeds will win this game. He destroyed every nearly moment.
