Bamford starts in unchanged Leeds team as Fulham name three-man midfield

Patrick Bamford (£6.7m) has overcome his recent yellow flag to start for Leeds in the opening match of Blank Gameweek 29.

The forward came off early in the Gameweek 28 draw with Chelsea and, after Marcelo Bielsa expressed confidence of his involvement, has kept his place in the starting XI.

Leeds are unchanged from the side that kept Thomas Tuchel’s men out on Saturday, which means Stuart Dallas (£5.1m) earns another central-midfield berth alongside Tyler Roberts (£4.6m).

Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m) anchors the midfield while Ezgjan Alioski (£4.3m) and Luke Ayling (£4.4m) are either side of Pascal Struijk (£4.0m) and Diego Llorente (£4.4m) in defence.

Since Gameweek 20, Chelsea are the only team to keep more clean sheets than Fulham and they are in 4-3-3 formation once again tonight.

André-Franck Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m) joins Harrison Reed (£4.4m) and Mario Lemina (£4.5m) in a busy midfield trio while Ademola Lookman (£5.1m) and Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.3m) are either side of Josh Maja (£5.5m) in a front-three.

Ola Aina (£4.6m) is stationed on the right-hand side of defence tonight with Antonee Robinson (£4.4m) handed a left-back berth.

Blank Gameweek 29 Line-ups

Fulham XI (4-3-3): Areola; A Robinson, Adarabioyo, Andersen, Aina; Anguissa, Lemina, Reed; Lookman, Maja, Cavaleiro.

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Alioski, Struijk, Llorente, Ayling; K Phillips; Harrison, Dallas, Roberts, Raphinha; Bamford.

    Isn't Tete a fullback ?
    What is Parker intending to defend ?

    1. 7shadesofsmoke
      • 8 Years

      hardly blessed with options 😆

        Fair point.

    Raph now you take the shot...

  15. Jon Walter's Hatty

    What a refreshing full bloodied game up to some of the sideways tepid crap weve seen

    1. Boss Hogg
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      All games with Bielsa involved are worth watching. The man loves football so much that he probably even watches Mourinho games.

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        Both sides leaving it out there

    Don't we just love these unpredictable South Americans ?

    Bamford and Raphina brought in on FH. Almost regardless from what happens it looks like a good choice.

    Aiming to make 30+ points difference and over half way there
