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.

    Don't like the fact that Phillips is taking some of the set pieces.

    1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

      and they are rubbish. don't understand why raphina doesn't take them

      1. EmreCan Hustle
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 1 day ago

        Exactly. Raphinha's passes are brilliant.

    2. DycheDycheBaby

      Yes I really don't get it. Raph has been great at set pieces. Phillips thinking he is better?

    Sometimes I wonder why do I stress myself out for days with picking a team/transfer.

    I swear this game can so easily take over your life.

      Looks like an impact injury. He's walked it off

    Fulham looks not too good, plays worse than in recent matches.

  10. DandyDon

    Feck sake. When is Bamford actually going to stop playing! Far to much of a worry not having him this week with ownership. Would have brought him in if he was fit.

    I remember when people were saying in the start of the season that this season will have much more goals than last ones,but in the last few weeks a lot of games dont have more than 1 or 2 goals in the game. And big games are more boring than ever

    1. GROBARI
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 1 day ago

      And there is a goal 😀
