Wolves restrict heavily-backed Bamford as Meslier suffers freak own goal

Wolves 1-0 Leeds

  • Goals: None
  • Own goals: Illan Meslier (£4.7m)
  • Assists: Adama Traoré (£6.0m)
  • Bonus points: Rui Patrício x3 (£5.3m), Raphinha x2 (£5.4m), Nelson Semedo (£5.2m)

MESS-LIER

Owners of Illan Meslier (£4.7m) endured a cruel evening as Leeds opened Double Gameweek 25 with a trip to Wolves.

In a relatively cagey encounter, the Whites’ goalkeeper was slowly building an impressive score, registering five saves in the opening period.

However, a dreadful piece of bad luck robbed him of what could have been a solid start to Double Gameweek 25 in the 64th minute.

Adama Traoré (£6.0m) who had mostly been kept quiet by Leeds’ full-backs, found some space in the middle for a speculative shot that struck the crossbar and went into the net off Meslier.

Before the own goal, the shot-stopper was projected a 10-point haul courtesy of a clean sheet, one save point and three bonus. After it, Meslier was down to just one point.

While there could be more joy against Southampton, it is certainly a hard start to the round for his 5.8% ownership.

WHAM BAM

It was a similar narrative for Patrick Bamford (£6.9m) who did not enjoy the best of starts to Double Gameweek 25 either.

The striker may have been backed by 80% of the top 10k for the captaincy but he endured a quiet evening at Molineux.

Wolves three-man defence smothered him while the hosts’ wing-backs and central midfielders did a solid job of cutting off his supply lines too.

As a result, Bamford only had two real moments where he looked even close to scoring.

In the middle of the second half, he was left with the scraps of a Liam Cooper (£4.3m) rebound but could not get enough power on his header to trouble Rui Patrício (£5.3m).

And then in the final 10 minutes, after Tyler Roberts (£4.6m) had played him through, Bamford unleashed a rising finish across goal and beyond Patrício, only to see it ruled out for a tight offside.

RAPH WITH THE SMOOTH

Raphinha (£5.4m) owners were also subjected to a teasing performance, the mid-priced midfielder very unlucky not to come away with a clutch of attacking returns.

In the 19th minute, he found Cooper with a free-kick delivery from the right, the centre-back unable to get adequate purchase on the ball.

Just after the interval, Luke Ayling (£4.4m) crossed into Raphinha at the near-post only for Conor Coady (£4.8m) to make a timely block.

Then between the 62nd and 70th minute, the Brazilian midfielder watched Cooper spurn three separate opportunities from corners. 

Had they fallen to Pascal Struijk (£3.9m) or Bamford, perhaps it would have been a different story.

In the closing stages of stoppage time, Raphinha’s speculative ball forward was seized upon by substitute Hélder Costa (£5.0m) who snatched at the finish despite the space in front of him.

And seconds later, Raphinha’s near-post header was turned around the post by Patrício, ensuring a match that could have produced a big haul turned out to be his first blank (in terms of attacking returns) since Gameweek 19.

Still, his high number of key passes, compared with a swathe of off-target shots opened the door for Raphinha to claim two bonus points in his first Double Gameweek 25 outing.

LINE-UP LESSONS

With Wolves lining up as an unchanged team for the first time in the league since Gameweek 8, the more interesting formation at Molineux was Leeds’.

Having tried and largely failed to ask other members of his squad to fill in for Phillips this season, Bielsa went for a different approach entirely by not directly replacing him.

“It’s not the first time (Phillips) has been absent. We have played well without him. Of course, he’s a big player but we have to adapt.” – Marcelo Bielsa

Instead, the Leeds manager moved away from the usual 4-1-4-1 shape and opted for 4-4-1-1 instead.

Mateusz Klich (£5.2m) and Jamie Shackleton (£4.8m) played as traditional central midfielders on Friday night with the extra man not behind them, but in front of them instead.

Bielsa handed that role to Roberts who sat just behind Bamford and would have come away with an assist were it not for a VAR call.

With Klich and Shackleton in the middle, Stuart Dallas (£5.0m) was returned to the left-back position after a prolonged spell in midfield. Ezgjan Alioski (£4.4m) was the man to make way, appearing only as a second-half substitute.

Struijk’s pairing with Cooper at centre-back ensured Luke Ayling (£4.4m) returned to right-back.

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI (3-4-3): Patrício; Saïss, Coady, Dendoncker; Jonny, Moutinho, Neves, Semedo; A Traoré, W José, Neto.

Leeds United XI (4-4-1-1): Meslier; Dallas, Cooper, Struijk, Ayling; Harrison, Klich, Shackleton (Hernández), Raphinha; Roberts; Bamford.

    How many hits are you guys prepared to take for BB26 to optimise point gain and number of DGWers?

    1. OleBall
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Anymore than -4 kinda makes BB pointless imo

        1. Ron_Swanson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          How come?

      • Skymonkey
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I'm planning to only have 12 DGWers without WCing, but yea possible BB

        • Tinkermania
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Anything from 4 to 12. Depends on your team.

        • Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          No more than -4 for BB

        • Forever In Our Shadow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Thinking of a -8 or -12 and Tc Kane and 11 dgwers

        • Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Really depends on each transfer but I wouldn’t want to take a -12 just for BB

        • HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          This answer depends on injuries
          Would be comfortable -8 to preserve wildcard but unexpected changes like Grealish potentially out changes things

        • estheblessed
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          It'll end up being a -8 for me. But I will have 14 doubles and Bam.

          1. Davros
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Are you BB then?

        • Carefree Crew
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Minus 8: to fund Kane & get a couple of DGW players in & BB, saving my WC.

      • TeddiPonza
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Team:

        Martinez
        Dias Stones Tark Digne
        Bruno Salah Son Gundo
        DCL Bamford
        (Raphinha Coufal Antonio)
        Best move?

        A. Antonio to Watkins, TC Salah, Son or Bruno
        B. Son and Bamford for Kane (TC) and Barnes -4
        C. Kane (TC) and 3.8m def for Digne and Bamford.

      • fcsaltyballs
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Would you BB26:

        Pope (tot, LEI) Bamford (AVL) Raphinha (AVL) Ings (eve)

        Y or N

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I might be tempted by a -4 to get another dgwer

        2. McSauce
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Villa Leeds could have goals IMO

          No
          With only 1 DGW player who has difficult fixtures, you may as well do it in a single with better fixtures.

      • Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        Looks like a lot of early transfers again. So many games to be played

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

          Annoying as DCL was on -105% and people are pushing up him now!

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            I’m looking at DCL next week as well

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Kane | DCL | Watkins?

              1. Pat Bonner
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years

                Yep

      • Coaly
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Will Stones rise tonight in your opinions? Going up on fix but down on fplstats

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Wouldn’t think so
          Lots of wc distorting numbers leading to disappointment

        2. I Must Break You
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Wild cards are throwing everything off. My guess is no rise.

      • Dybala10
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Any TC inklings?

        Kane vs Fulham & Burnley is probably better on paper than reality.

        1. BIG TONES
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Bruno?

        2. _Freddo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Salah has Sheff United away & Chelsea at home, Chelsea are better now but he does seem to score against them a bit.

        3. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          If be inclined to agree though they have bullied the smaller teams a bit

        4. Coys96
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I like DCL

        5. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Currently active on Kane. I'm okay with paper. Can't do much more than that. Reality exists only in hindsight

        6. Carefree Crew
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Freddo: Does Salah score against Chelsea a bit?
          I thought the exact opposite.
          Disclaimer I'm a Chelsea fan. 🙂
          Salahs goal scoring record versus the traditional top 6 is generally low isn't it?

      • Danstoke82
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Ings > Kane 1FT

        A) Now get it done!
        B) woah wait a bit

        Thanks

        1. Pat Bonner

          If you can absorb price change then wait

        5. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          B

        6. MikeS
          • 6 Years

          I'm tempted to do it now. WC available if mess up

          1. Danstoke82
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Cheers all looks like it’s best to wait until at least he’s played as we all know what will happen.

            Really keen to hold WC until 31

            1. Honourvolley
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Definitely hold. Especially as Kane didn’t travel for Europa, just not worth the risk.

        7. Carefree Crew
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          B) unless you will be priced out, then I'd probably gamble rather than wasting a WC.
          Minus 4 to reverse it would be the worse case scenario. Don't waste your WC.

      • Neevesy
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Ings and Soucek to Kane and Foden a no brainer right?

        Leaves me with Stones, Gundo and Foden for the Pep roulette.

        Next question is BB or TC Kane.

        1. Konstaapeli
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Maybe after the games.

          1. Neevesy
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Yeah it's the plan but I'm not going in early.

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3. Konstaapeli
          • 4 Years

          Yes

      • Coys96
        • 3 Years

        Safe to activate WC now to catch price risers/fallers?

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          If set on using wc then makes sense

        2. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Not much point unless you are severely strapped for cash.

          1. Coys96
            • 3 Years

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years

              Then I’d make a move or two with hits and then activate later.

          • 11 Years

          No, it will self destruct at 4am and you’ll never see your team again

      • HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Lots of wildcards distorting price changes so don’t trust the stats at all.
        If not activating wildcard there’s no logical reason to bring in Kane just yet when gw25 hasn’t been played right....

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Sound advice this

            2 months, 1 day ago

            My only concern about not using wc this week is seeing the masses activate it and with a rank of ~90k it’s how many points will I fall behind by the time I do use it in gw30/31
            Guess comes down to injuries and careful planning

            1. Pat Bonner
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Don’t think you can worry about that too much. No reason that you’ll lose ground if teams in decent shape and doesn’t need wc? I used mine this week but really it’s fairly template so not sure I’ll gain that much but I’d taken a few punts recently so had 10 changes on wc

              1. HMC
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                True true.
                Part of the reason to hold for me is to get on some differentials when fixtures do turn post the 29 blank

        2. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          You’re right, but what about people that make early transfers and activate Wildcard further down the line?

          I did this last week, this will lead to price changes as it’s a normal transfer at the time

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Fair shout. Would still think early transfers are the minority and not enough to make huge impact for the most part

        Ings to Kane with my first FT.

        Is Pope and Soucek to fodder and Barnes worth a - 4? Only concern is getting rid of a BGW29 player

          I'm torn between dropping one of Son/Barnes/Watkins.
          With back to back dgws for city, not tempted to triple up on them?

            Worried about Pep roulette especially now with CL starting & PL almost wrapped up. I still have 11 DGWers for 26, 2 in 27, potentiall 3 in 28 if both villa & everton double. Have FH if needed in 29/33.

        3. HMC

          Think I would prefer someone cheaper to Son to have a 3rd playing forward.
          This is the season of the bench after all

          1. Sanguinista

            How does this look?

            Martinez (3.9)
            Shaw Rudiger Stones Dunk Digne
            Gundo Salah Bruno Barnes Jorginho
            Kane DCL Vardy

              Each to their own
              Feel Jorginho there just cause he’s cheap and you’re probably never going to get the pens he converts cause you bench him

              I haven’t looked too closely but Raphinha hard to ignore right now and talisman Ings also good option

        4. BeWater
            2 months, 1 day ago

            I like it. Some big potential in that back line. Front 7 look very good too.

        5. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 7 Years

          Just how incredibly bad was Bam(c) to get fewer BPS than Meslier?

            He was unlucky. Could have had 2 goals

            Meslier had a great game to be fair

            • 4 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Virtually anonymous apart from his well taken offside goal. Not that he kept missing chances etc

            Meslier had a blinder.

            He’s a player that relies on service. Didn’t get any.

            • 11 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            He was 'bad' against Newcastle then got 15 against Leicester, if he does that again you'd be delighted.

            Got no service today, the one chance he did get, he took but was offside.

          Unfortunately the two extra fixtures for Villa(Sutd) and Everton(Wba) in gw26 was the worst scenario for my team.Do you think i need to use my Wc or take some hits?Only TC left.

            B. Areola => Martinez (free)

            D. Areola, Grealish, Fodder => Martinez, ESR, DCL (8pt hit)

            Note: ESR will be a bench fodder for most weeks.

            Ings and Bamford to Watkins and DCL
            or
            Bamford and Raphina to Watkins and Periera

              2 months, 1 day ago

              I’m considering Ings and bamford moves. Raphinha looks too good to lose right now

            8 -8 from 3 any good? Lol

            Tad unlucky as a Raphinha capper

            1. BeWater
                2 months, 1 day ago

                That's seriously unlucky. Had a look at the match stats and Raph had 6 attempted assists and an xA of 1.10. He also had an xG of 0.39 with 4 shots.

            2. BeWater
                2 months, 1 day ago

                The BB chip is actually a pain in the backside. I've spent so much time thinking about different combinations but just going to abandon ship on it now. Remove Pope for a 3.9 GK and get Ings out for Kane and captain him. Just going to use BB if an opportunity presents itself later.

                1. KAPTAIN KANE
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  Same, might just bench Leeds assets and play TC

                  1. KAPTAIN KANE
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 1 day ago

                    Will probably base it on how Spurs look at the weekend

                  2. BeWater
                      2 months, 1 day ago

                      The combos I was looking at meant I would end up BB with Pope and 3 Leeds v Aston Villa. Leeds could easily end up with a result like tonight. I'm going to WC post GW29 and see what opportunity presents itself. If not I'll just use it on the last GW!

                        • 9 Years
                        2 months, 1 day ago

                        That’s not the worst bench to use it on? Not better to get it out of the way

                        1. BeWater
                            2 months, 1 day ago

                            That was my thinking a few days ago but now I'm thinking just sacrifice Pope so I can get Kane. If something happens to Kane I'll get Vardy and some other DGWs (have 2FTs).

                      U on a WC?

                      1. BeWater
                          2 months, 1 day ago

                          Still have my WC. Don't have FH. Seemed better just to carry Coufal and triple Leeds through to 29 with Kane and Son and then BB after. BB next week would mean not getting Kane and compromising the first 11. And possibly for about 10 bench points.

                        BB play when your team is fit with home fixtures.

                        Where did this 15 x 15 dgw come from?

                        Most big squads will rotate anyhow.

                            2 months, 1 day ago

                            This is spot on. Every year I get DGW fever and it never works out. Just get Kane and captain seems likes far less hassle!

                          No. One chip per week.

                          No only one chip a week

                        Those of u with ur WC still u using it this wk to set up for 26/27 and other good fixtures or gonna ride it out without?

                        If you can get a half descent bench on a WC you could always BB in a sgw now that we know how things stand?

                          2 months, 1 day ago

                          My preference is to navigate with transfers now until fixture turn in gw30/31 especially some decent differentials rather than wc now than scramble to change half the team in a few weeks

                            If Grealish is really out A, Areola has a double right? Won't take unnecessary hits ...

                            Is Grealish definitely injured?

                            I'd hold Areola. He has DGW26 and also plays in the blank.

                            Fulham are playing well at the moment.

                          I've read the Insider FPL post about Grealish. Can anyone confirm for sure that he is injured? I was planning on transferring him in for the DGW26.

                            Yes likely but alot of WCs messing up the algorithm.

                          For 26-29

                          A) Kane and Son
                          B) KDB and DCL
                          C) Kane and Maddison/Barnes

                          No free hit so do need 29 coverage

                              How many GW29 players are you on currently though?

                                6 with 2 FT = 5 by 29!

                                FH into 15

                              Kane Barnes - these are the two I'm aiming to get

                            Which would you rather have long term?

                            A) Cancelo + Holgate
                            B) Dias + Keane

                            Planning to use BB in GW28 for the supposedly Villa and Everton DGW

                                What about Cancelo with Konsa or Ben White? Not sure I fancy an Everton defender.

                                Prefer Cancelo, for the higher potential. Another option could be Stones plus Digne.

                                I've been contemplating big hits or triple Leeds for BB26, but BB28 could be great especially if Villa Everton is moved there.
