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?

        2 months, 26 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
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Very likely

      2. Hazz

        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
        2 months, 26 days ago

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

      2. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Wow, is he injured?

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

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

        • dogtanion
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Yeah but so annoying no returns yet

      2. Flynny
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 26 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
          • 4 Years

          3-4-3

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

          Martinez, El Mohamedy and Watkins is the best triple up

          1. Flynny
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 26 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

      3. Jindaljain

        1. Dirty Harry
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          So did everyone else

        2 months, 26 days ago

        Quick vote. Exact money for BB next week

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

        13DGW + Ings + Dallas

        1. Shark Team
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Then you will want them back for gw29

            Yeah thats GW27-29 plans.

            1. Shark Team
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 26 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
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

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

      7. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Alioski and Costa in for Shackleton and Roberts. Dallas CM

        Meslier really impressing Southgate here.

      9. Finding Timo
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Hi Is There a reliable Source that grealish is Injured ?

          1. Shark Team
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            No, but 99.9% he is injured

            1. Finding Timo
                2 months, 26 days ago

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

                1. AC/DC AFC
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 26 days ago

                  I reckon Gundogan plays.

            2. IRBOX ⚽
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

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

              1. Shark Team
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 26 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

              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

                  • 5 Years

                  This.

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

                  Marginal gains to the opposition and all that.

                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

              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

                Double Leeds defence would disagree.

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

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

                  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

              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?

                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

              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!
