Scout Notes

Leeds colleagues outshine peripheral Bamford in big win at Burnley

Burnley 0-4 Leeds

  • Goals: Mateusz Klich (£5.2m), Jack Harrison (£5.5m), Rodrigo x2 (£5.7m)
  • Assists: Raphinha (£5.5m), Ezgjan Alioski (£4.3m), Harrison x2
  • Bonus points: Rodrigo x3, Harrison x2, Luke Ayling x1 (£4.4m), Illan Meslier x1 (£4.7m)

PAT ON THE BACK

Patrick Bamford (£6.5m) managed just one point as Leeds scored four goals in their Saturday-lunchtime demolition of Burnley.

The mid-priced forward earned a net increase of 310,556 owners for Blank Gameweek 36 but his 41.7% backing will already have concerns ahead of the final two matches of the season.

Bamford endured a largely peripheral outing at Turf Moor, marked out of the game by James Tarkowski (£5.3m) and Ben Mee (£4.7m) and forced to drop into deeper positions to get a sniff of the ball.

That difficult dynamic only lasted 57 minutes for Bamford who was replaced by Rodrigo in a substitution that will have his owners a little nervous ahead of Gameweeks 37 and 38.

Rodrigo has now produced three goals from the bench across his last two Premier League appearances, offering lively running that Bamford was unable to supply on Saturday afternoon.

Still, Marcelo Bielsa gave no indication in his post-match press conference that Rodrigo would definitely replace Bamford against Southampton on Tuesday. The two have played together before, with Bamford up-front and Rodrigo acting as a number eight in central midfield making late runs into the box.

“Rodrigo is a player like the one you defined: at a very high level. One of the strikers for the Spanish national team and that team is a powerhouse. Like I said before, he takes a while to get to his full performance. When he finally finds his form, he unbalances others.” – Marcelo Bielsa

JACK AND THE BEANSTALK

Meanwhile, Jack Harrison (£5.5m) continues to make a mockery of his ownership levels as he recorded 17 points against Burnley on Saturday.

Scoring and assisting both of Rodrigo’s goals, the Manchester City loanee’s third double-digit haul of the campaign made him the fifth-highest scoring FPL midfielder this season, overtaking Ilkay Gündogan (£5.6m).

Bruno Fernandes (£11.4m), Son Heung-min (£9.7m), Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) and Marcus Rashford (£9.6m) are the only assets in that position with more points than Harrison this season, whose 27.3 points per million spent is the best of any midfielder in 2020/21.

Despite those impressive figures, just 3.6% of Fantasy managers own Harrison at the time of writing.

“For Leeds, it’s very important to count on a player like Harrison. He has a big growth throughout the campaign.” – Marcelo Bielsa

Still, the 6.7%-owned Raphinha (£5.5m) did enough to remain in the conversation for investing in Leeds’ remaining appealing fixtures against Southampton (away) and West Bromwich Albion (home).

WHITE AS A (CLEAN) SHEET

Leeds collected their 11th clean sheet of the campaign against Burnley on Saturday, which helped cement Illan Meslier‘s (£4.7m) place as the second-highest scoring goalkeeper of the season.

His total of 155 points is more than the top-scoring shot-stopper in two of the last six seasons, Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m) managing 151 in 2014/15 while Tom Heaton (£4.5m) scored 149 in 2016/17.

With Southampton and West Brom up next, further defensive returns hardly seem out of the question for Leeds.

Over their last six matches, their goals-conceded total of five is beaten only by Everton (four), Chelsea (three) and Arsenal (three) and they are only the second Premier League team since Gameweek 27 to see Chris Wood (£6.5m) register a blank.

“I agree particularly in the first half we had a great defensive performance. Even though we conceded a few chances in the second half, which we didn’t in the first, I link that to the fact we attacked with more insistence. Resolution of the central part of the back three was important. Also the contribution of our goalkeeper.” – Marcelo Bielsa

While Stuart Dallas (£5.4m) remains the headline FPL defender at Leeds with his 164 points (more than any other in his position across the entire division) and ongoing midfield role, Ezgjan Alioski (£4.3m) is still worth keeping a close eye on.

His assist and clean sheet helped him to nine points against Burnley and took him over the 100-point barrier for the campaingn.

The North Macedonian international has provided an assist in three of his last six outings ensuring he remains the second-best for value among Leeds defenders this season behind only Dallas (30.4) with his total of 23.5 points per million spent.

Burnley XI: Peacock-Farrell; C Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; McNeil (Gudmundsson 70′), Westwood, Cork, Brownhill; Wood (A Barnes 65′), Vydra (Rodriguez 65′).

Leeds United XI: Meslier; Alioski, Struijk, Llorente, Ayling; K Phillips; Harrison, Dallas, Klich (Roberts 76′), Raphinha (Poveda-Ocampo 81′); Bamford (Rodrigo 57′).

BLANK GAMEWEEK 36 SO FAR…

Danny Ings (£8.4m) followed in Patrick Bamford‘s (£6.5m) footsteps as Southampton beat Fulham 3-1 on Saturday afternoon.

He came off 57 minutes into the encounter having avoided any involvement for his 7.3% ownership.

His replacement Nathan Tella (£4.3m) stole the Fantasy show with his goal and assist as well as a pair of bonus points.

The FPL midfielder has traditionally operated as a centre-forward when on the pitch for Southampton and, if he can earn some more minutes between now and the end of the season, could be a shrewd differential with Leeds (away) and West Ham (away) Saints’ last two opponents.

Che Adams (£5.7m) has shown decent short-term form too, adding his ninth goal of the campaign against Fulham and claiming maximum bonus.

Over his last two matches, he has two goals, one assist, five bonus and a total of 20 points (10 per game).

Bonus points:

  • 3 – Che Adams
  • 2 – Nathan Tella
  • 1 – James Ward-Prowse

      Bamford or Antonio for the last two.
      Same price and same fixtures.
      What are the chances Bielsa will give Rodrygo a start instead of Bamford after the Burnley performance?

        Antonio. Something to play for

      Risers: None

      Is Salah vs Burnley the best option for TC?

        Depends on today.

          You mean how many minutes he plays or whether they win or not?
          I believe he will be playing for the golden boot anyway + a European football spot

            Everything, other injuries etc. Bruno is a pretty good choice fwiw.

              Thanks. It is between these 2 so hopefully I get it right

      Quite interesting to look at FPL teams last week and this week. Some big scores last week with people going large on the those that doubled, but lots of hits and bare 11 squads this week as a result of that.

      I think we really need to look at our performance during these doubles followed by blanks jointly over both games to understand if we managed them well.

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Anecdotally some will do really well in both game weeks, but huge score last week, for sure nice chip use 🙂

          9 players this week ? at best ?

      1. gart888
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Absolutely agree.

        I scored enough last week that I was okay with only starting 9 players this week. It didn't seem worth it to me to tear my team apart and take a bunch of hits. So far it's working out very well.

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          yip that is right, points you gained last week will carry you through this week.

        I see your point but Spurs and Liverpool didn’t play today. Sure, it’d have been nice to get some Leeds/West Ham return but I wasn’t expecting it.

        Just a day with lackluster fixtures. It was always going to depend on tomorrow’s results

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          This week and last week are inextricably linked imho, so just saying that what we gained last week by loading up on extra dgw players, now needs to be viewed against this week too by considering our hits and what we score, perhaps without even 11 players.

          I look at these two weeks as a single pod and will add my points together to judge if I did well or not and whether I had an overall green arrow over the two game weeks

        1 month, 3 days ago

        Very good comments here. I've gone for the strategy of hits but brought in players with good fixtures for the remaining GW's. It'll be very interesting to see how the two different approaches fair over the last two GW's.

          If you're second in a few mini leagues it makes most sense.

          Unless final rank is your main driver. Anyhow it could propel you up and you shouldn't need to take any further hits now.

      1. Watkins to antonio, Lingard to greenwood -4.

      Yay or nay?

      1. Team of Gary Breens
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Watkins to Antonio all day. Not sure if Lingard to Greenwood is worth a -4
          Utd have nothing to play for in the league and will most likely rotate to keep players fresh for EL and blood the likes of Amad and others

          1. Luton_Fan
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Thanks. I think most of big guns will play on Tuesday though including greenwood.

            1. Team of Gary Breens
                1 month, 4 days ago

                Agreed and he’s the definitely the form player most likely to get a decent haul
                Over the next two Lingard is nearly guaranteed 180mins though, Greenwood’s mins are anyone’s guess depending who starts the EL final.
                Go for it though, worth a punt

          Million dollar question... which Leeds to bring in for GW37? I currently have zero....

          1. Luton_Fan
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Raphinha/harrison and dallas best 3 options imo as cant be sure bam will start next game after Rodrigo's performance yesterday.

        • LegendMoon
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          If the answer is joe linton surely I’m asking the wrong question?

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            No Wilson.

          2. big_cliff
            • 5 Years

            What do you think about Willock?

        • Gun gun
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Keep ings or sell?

          1. Luton_Fan
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Keep imo. Ings was unlucky yesterday and will get chances vs leeds. Saints playing well and creating chances

            Pickford.

          • 10 Years

          Couldn’t get more polar opposite in terms of fpl yesterday as an Ings captainer and Harrison owner

        • vincentwsho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Who has the highest priority of keeping in the last 2 weeks? Please help rank:

          1) Watkins
          2) Nacho
          3) JWP
          4) Saka

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Nacho easily has the most to play for. JWP more reliable than the other 2 unless of course Grealish starts

          2. REDMOND IN SANDALS
              1 month, 3 days ago

              you have to take into account a large pool of strikers that can do very well in the coming weeks.

            Would you be worried going without any United attack for Fulham game?
            Taken a couple of hits in 36 so rolling a transfer for 38 would be ideal but really fear no Greenwood (sold Bruno this week)

            1. AC/DC AFC
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Surely they're all rested v Wolves so only 1 more match for the main Man Utd boys.

          4. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years

            Reasons to be cheerful.

            Brilliant FA Cup final winning goal and victory for Leicester City.

                Cheering the right VAR decision too...

          5. House Frey Wedding Planner
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Will have a 20-30 point lead over rival for gw37.

            His main differentials - Bruno, TAA

            My main differentials - Son, Dallas, Antonio, Mount. I also have Phillips for LIV defence points.

            He will most likely captain Bruno against Fulham. I would most likely go Salah/Kane (he has both as well).

            Should I change my team to bring Bruno in to block him potentially catching me? I can do this as a straight swap for Son (would prefer to keep Son though) or do a -4 and take out Mount & Jota for Bruno and ESR.

            Thoughts?

            1. Holmes
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              That -4 for Bruno and Rowe looks better

            2. AC/DC AFC
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Think seriously about how Chelsea deploy and ditch Man Utd by gw38 too.

            • 4 Years

            What are you doing with your Chelsea and Leicester assets for GW37? I was thinking of playing Castagne and Rudiger but benching Iheanacho with the expectation of a low scoring game

            1. RogDog_jimmy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Benching Nacho and Rudiger - that’s all I have left.

            2. House Frey Wedding Planner
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Sold my Leicester assets (Cast & Nacho) prior to gw36.

              Have Rudiger & Mount - will start Rudiger and will have Mount as 1st sub or will have sold him (see post above).

            3. Holmes
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Have only Iheanacho, not sure what to do.

              If I had any Chelsea assets, I would play them. Doubt Leicester can beat them again.

            4. Mac90

                • 7 Years

                Maybe get in Willock for Siggy for the shu fixture?

                  Good punt, will you play Castagne in this case?

                    Team would be something like this. Not sure on the bench yet.

                    Pickford

            Would you save the FT here or make a move?
            Hard time deciding who to start too!

            Martinez.
            TAA, Shaw, Digne.
            Jota, Salah, Lingard, Mahrez, Greenwood.
            Kane, DCL.
            Steer, Dallas, Watkins, Burn.
            1ft, 0.4m ITB.

              Save for sure.

              If Jota gets a start today, the. I would probably start Dallas over him.

                Looks strong to say the least, I wouldn't want that team to be in my league.

                  Salah or Kane probably.
                  Will see how they are looking later.

                    I see. The reason I ask is because your team is very similar to mine and wondering whether I should do the same or transfer out Son for Fernandes for a hit and captain him instead.

              no where to go with that team I suppose, money spread and a benching headache but a good team ... no way to get a big hitter like Bruno, Son or Mane without a hit, so just roll the transfer

            I reckon Salah won't start today. When Mane is rested he does tend to get rested a game away

            1. Holmes
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Hopefully it's a complete rest if that happens, can't take a 1pt captain at this stage.

                No VC's in the game I am playing.

                He would come on anyway. He always does

                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 4 days ago

                  It's only the sheer importance of the game which maybe keeps him in the team possibly. Hate second guessing this stuff

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              i think they will set up as they did for Newcastle ... Firmino, Salah, Mane & Jota all starting

              1. Cheeseoid
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 4 days ago

                Hopefully. They did play just 3 days ago though. It wouldn't surprise me if one of teh forwars missed out. Especially after Mane was rested in the last game. It does feel like it might just be Mo's turn

                1. Hotdogs for Tea
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 4 days ago

                  if you follow who has been rested i think it’s Firmino’s turn

                  1. Cheeseoid
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 4 days ago

                    It's difficult to judge. But Mane rested 31 Salah 32, and Mane rested 10, Salah 9 two occasions this season when it has been a game apart. It's not much to go on I know but...

                    1. Hotdogs for Tea
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      1 month, 4 days ago

                      no idea really, and all will be revealed soon, but this is who was rested in the last run of all games, I think

                      Mane, Firmino, N/A, Salah, Jota, Mane

                  2. Cheeseoid
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 4 days ago

                    Firmino is harder to read as he gets rotated for Jota a lot in comparison

            3. j16

              I can't see Salah being benched myself. He didn't start against Leeds a few game weeks back. Liverpool fighting for top 4 too, is in form, whereas Mane hasn't been as in good form.

              Rest vs golden boot?

              1. Bushwhacker
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 4 days ago

                Klopp could care less about a golden boot. He needs to win three games. That said either Firmino or Jota will sit for the other.

                1. FALSE PROFIT

                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 4 days ago

                  I think it will impact on rotation. I hope Salah not dropped due to Mane throwing his toys the other day. If Klopp rotates he should consider form and fitness not politics.

              Very remote chance to be rested for Salah. Fighting for 4th place and Golden boot, and only 3 matches left. It doesn't make sense to stand and rest in the midway of a 100 metres sprint.

              Good teams but they do get rotated a lot, especially Chelsea. It will be part of the reason you are doing well

                  Obvious alternatives. Bamford; I love his character but he does have frailties. DCL is someone I love, but Godfrey has been fantastic; played everywhere with aplomb.

                    DCL has gone missing when his supply has been injured . Godfrey has been immense most the season.

                  Holy recency bias! No way Tielemans gets in over Ndidi.

                  No way Grealish can miss so many games and win it. Has to Martinez.

                    Both valid picks. Ndidi was a toss for me. Maybe a bit of recency bias played a part. But this was a choice before yesterday.

                    I agree about Ndidi ... Tielemans was quite anonymous for part of the early season. From memory (I don't have much left these days) I think he was occasionally benched.

                    Prob would of said Grealish if he hadn’t missed a third of the season or so.

                    Disagree on: wolves Neto
                    Spurs Højbjerg
                    Newcastle, both been good bit too much injured, but not much Else to choose
                    United Shaw
                    Everton Dcl
                    Mount over Kante because of minutes played, Bissouma has been the best cm in yje league bar Fabinho so him over Dunk.
                    SHU berge before he hot injured
                    Fulham Lookman perhaps
                    Burnley not Wood but Westwood

                          recent numbers have been good + playing vs 2 worst defence in the division

                                  It's a good team for next week. I wouldn't go Joelington. For a punt I'd rather do Rodrigo tbh

                        Why is there talk of Bam possibly not starting? He starts all games. Rodrigo can play AM as before.

                        Anything I'm missing ?

                          Bamford was ineffective yesterday and Bielsa can play someone if he performed well in the prior match. Bamford os a favorite though.

                          I did C more or less on Friday. Big C up! You have a few playing doubts so ensure cover for Mahrez

                            Yeah made more sense on Friday but not sure about taking bruno (FUL) out at this stage. Will be heavily captained

                        I think i will stop playing this game after huge discrimination.
                        Coufal assist denied last night bacuase hes not from England. If it was the same situation with TAA, it will be 100% assist and 3 baps.

                          Yeah, and if it was Bruno he'd get goal plus 3 bonus points.

                          Over half the top flight players and many in the Championship are not English.

                          Truly an international game here, unlike American World series!!

                            Many voted him into their team of the season.

                            Hope you had a good 9 years or so.

                        I'm playing Nacho as Leicester will have tails up with 2 to go.

                        Chelsea will be seeking revenge and league position but will have to play into their squad with the main Champions League prize on the immediate horizon.

                        It's a tough one to call.
