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.

    Can't understand why Parker sub out Maja. Injury?

    1. The Suspended One

      He’s shite

  2. The Train Driver

    That Dallas miss hurt so much as a Dallas and Raphina owner..

    1. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      It. Sure. Did. Sigh.

    2. Catastrophe

      If its any consolation for you, many of us shares your pain.

    Raphinha still cursed...

  4. Catastrophe

    Klich bait

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      They just aren’t Klich-ing

      Hanging on with a Ayling defence.

    Benched Meslier last two weeks: 9 and 11 points. Played him this week: 3 points. Just typical!

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Exactly why never been a fan of goalies rotation.

      1. Hybrid.power
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah for sure.

    2. Catastrophe
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Just get Martinez and problem solved!

    Are... you ... kidding. That Raph A Dallas G was exactly what was needed man

  7. tbos83
    6 months, 4 days ago

    Don't fancy Fulham's chances of staying up

    1. Boss Hogg

      See Dirty Harry’s answer below...

    Think there's a bug with Live FPL at the moment. It's giving me a bigger rank increase than it should

    1. Dirty Harry
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      That's viagra for ya

      1. panda07
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        I'll take any rise I can get these days, don't get me wrong!

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      C Bamford? Otherwise this result won’t change you much

      1. panda07
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        Nope, 21 points from Dallas Raph and Bamf and I've gone from 97k to 52k according to Live FPL

        1. Ragabolly
          • 11 Years
          6 months, 4 days ago

          I don't think there is a bug at the moment, are you still seeing something wrong?

          1. panda07
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            6 months, 4 days ago

            I think maybe it had something to do with the fact that I still had the browser open since last week and I just clicked refresh so it was counting my points for this gameweek and not everyone else's.

            It has updated to around 82k now which seems more sensible.

            Sorry, I didn't mean to alarm you! I love the website btw.

            • 9 Years
            6 months, 4 days ago

            Thinking back now, usually I'm asked to re-enter my team ID at the start of a new GW but it didn't when I used it today

  9. Rainer

    Raph close to 2 BAPs.

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      He’ll get there and then miss a big chance at the death

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Second goal would be nice. Just to be sure of those 2 BAPS

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        That would have been clear for 3.

  10. The Suspended One
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    6 months, 4 days ago

    Only 56% of top 10k FHers had BamBam. Even less overall.

    Imagine...

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      I thought it would have been 80% at least for top 10k.

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Beautiful.

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      The yellow flag

    4. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Wow, that's crazy

      I know you don't want a potentially injured player on a fh but if he missed out you could have a strong fh bench too

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        This, zero reason not to start and have playing bench

    5. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Bamford getting flagged scared some.

    6. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Injury doubt but should have had enough ITB for decent cover.

    7. FPL Pillars
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      My two rivals FH and still have him, damn.

    8. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      No excuse on FH tbh

    2. Thomas Magnum

    3. Bennerman
      • 3 Years

      as a fellow Raph captainer, I can safely say i am ecstatic with a return

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        This... especially after 1st half

      Having 2 for GW30 should serve you well. Some tasty fixtures for teams/players not playing this weekend
