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

    Scary not owning Kane & DCL

    Hopefully Son & Richarlison outscore them

    1. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Hoping for a kane blank and Son hatty

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years

      Yeah, Dominic is going to be pain

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Ye atleast I can watch the matches hoping for Reguilon, Son, Digne and Richarlison returns.
        But if Kane and/or DCL scores I’ll have to change diaper

    3. Jebiga

      What if Fabio Silva make a late winner for Wolves ?

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Then hopefully Reguilon had his CS banked 🙂

    Iheanacho to willock for last two games ?

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

      Willock? Would require 2FTs

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

      Willock is a midfielder.

    Really hope that once we got this pandemic nightmare under control, next season game weeks won't be stretched over nearly whole week as at the moment.

    Really need the buzz back of several 15:00 kick offs.

      No next season for me, need to do better things with my life

        Good luck pal, I'm an addict and despite being beaten over and over again, I keep coming back - bit like alcoholics wife.

        We all say that at one time or another Vazza, but we all know deep down we're going to get sucked right back in come August! Maybe take a break from the Euros to recharge?

        1. el polako

          • 4 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Few weeks prior to first kick off is my favourite time playing this games.
          Endless tinkering, trying to find the next cheap gem\season keeper (Michu,AWB,Lindstram,Dallas) and dreaming big for the season.

    2. Elfozzie 42
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Yeah, I'm with you on that - it's been a crazy year and whilst it's nice to have something to distract from Covid, having a few days 'off' football wouldn't be a disaster... fortunately we have the summer break (oh) 😉

    Early thoughts on who to sell and buy with ONE FT this week

    Martinez
    TAA Holding Maguire*
    Salah Rashford Jota Lingard Bruno
    Watkins Kane
    Subs: Nacho Struijk Veltman*

    0.0m ITB

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Maguire to Dallas.

      1. Vazza
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Thanks, is Struijk unlikely to play?

        1. Vazza
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Because I’m half tempted to bring in Meslier for Martinez.

          What do you think?

          1. Rasping Drive
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            4 months, 3 days ago

            I’m not sure it’s worth bringing in a keeper at this late stage; and Martinez is a beast. It looks like you have bigger fires to put out unless you want to take a hit. Re: Struijk, no idea, sorry, but Bielsa is normally transparent in his pressers so perhaps wait until then before making a decision.

        2. Jellyfish
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Assume he is referring to Dallas goal/assist chances. Leeds final 2 fix are good so worth a double up at the back.
          Martinez > Meslier is also an option but there is more upside with the Dallas move

          1. Vazza
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 3 days ago

            Thanks boys, I really appreciate. Think I’m just overthinking it

  5. Rasping Drive
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    On a FH, sitting on 3 pts ( 😀 ) with 7 to play. Hanging on in there after the three City no-shows and Ings pick. Dallas and Welbeck to come off the bench; a Mitchell start and Palace cleansheet would be beautiful. Jesus, it’s been a tough season.

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      True, next won't be walk in park either now we have 2 rotating grand masters (Pep & Tuchel) at title challenging clubs.

      1. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Yes, very true. Best to jump on assets early doors and sell them all before the fixtures start to pile up. If only there were more like Bielsa who is an FPL manager’s wet dream.

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Add those bench points and then post 😉

      1. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Hehe. Yeah, perhaps you’re right.

  6. Jellyfish
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Best Watkins replacement for the final 2 gw’s?

    Max budget of 6.7

    1. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 3 days ago

      I am keeping Watkins, he’s a big game player and with Grealish back, he can score big.

      Use your FTs to improve your squad elsewhere

      1. Jellyfish
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Thanks for your input but the chances of Watkins scoring big in their final 2 games is a tad optimistic.
        Tempted by Che

        1. Vazza
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Watkins is a class player compared to Che. Why downgrade a Ferrari for a Ford?

      It’s a good team. Just roll your 1 FT to the final GW

    After shrewd transfers of Mahrez and Antonio into my team i now sit with 5 points in GW36 and that's with a hit taken. How do i fix this mess?

    Lloris
    Digne - Shaw - TAA
    Bruno - Salah - Jota - Mahrez
    Antonio - DCL - Bamford

    Martinez - Lingard - Targett - Rudiger
    1FT, 1.1 ITB

    A - Who do i sell? Mahrez, Lingard, Targett, Rudiger and even Bamford look like candidates to go
    B - Who do i get? Ready for a -4 if needed. Raphinia/Harrison, Dallas, Greenwood, perhaps a Newcastle player

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Mahrez buyer aswell. Gotta stick with him?

      If he plays could do wreck

      I'd nearly say bank ft?

      1. afsr
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        you can never guess with him

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Don't buy Man Utd.

      You'll need to sell Bruno soon too.

      1. afsr
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Bruno could be rested for GW38, yes, but i reckon Greenwood will play both games, maybe early sub in the last one

    3. LegendMoon
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Lingard to Willock, Jota to raphina

      1. afsr
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        this sounds interesting. why Jota though?

        1. LegendMoon
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Not sure he will start to be honest

    4. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Do you have any specific plan for GW38? It would be handy with 2 FT. Your team is solid with good bench coverage. I would stick.

    5. Elfozzie 42
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      The only thing you can be sure of with Pep is he will rotate, so I'd say there's a decent chance of Mahrez start - he'll want as many players sharp for CL final as poss I think. With Lingard as cover you don't need to swap this week. That said, a cheeky shift to Greenwood could be interesting.

      Its more tempting to tinker up front - that front 3 didn't look great in their last game (obv DCL has Sheff United today), problem is who to bring in, the mid-range strikers have started to revert to 'price' recently. Adams, Rodrigo and Wellbeck look to be 'in-form' differentials (I ended up with Benteke up front as a short-term move which has worked okay), although Bamford to Rodrigo is a bit sideways. Gah. I've talked myself out of offering any useful advice, sorry!

  10. AC/DC AFC

    Could West Brom home to Liverpool be the latest twist in the race for top 4 and dropped points?

    A score draw...

    1. Elfozzie 42
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Really? As an Everton fan I'd love to see Liverpool miss out on CL qualification, but as a fantasy manager I can't see it.
      This is Liverpool's last chance to salvage something and after the second half showing at United, I'd expect them to push on and this to be a 3-1 / 4-1 type of game.

          Don’t think so. The points are accurate in real time pretty much this season.

      Whilst it's true that the bps is far more 'up to date' than previous and tends to change less after final whistle, there is a final update on the Opta data (checking out if there are erroneous passes, assists, tackles, saves etc and making sure things like winning goal bonuses are added, etc) which takes place after the game and before the bps are finalised - once they are listed in FPL they are done. Alioski got bumped up a few points in this from 30-32 (maybe due to 'winning' goal?), so Ayling and Meslier (who I own) ended up missing out on the last bap!

        N.B. That is how I understand it anyway, I could be slightly wrong! 😉

    People with Ings what are you doing? I have 9.2 to spend

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Is he injured again? If fit I would keep

      1. Vazza
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 3 days ago

        He’s not injured, just came off to manage minutes

    2. Elfozzie 42
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      It's a tough one isn't it, a lot of the mid-range strikers are suddenly looking less attractive. Iheanacho and DCL's fixtures aren't great, Antonio and Bamford both looked a bit meh in last match, Wilson gets injured just as Newcastle start scoring, etc. I guess you can see how Watkins does this week and then decide. Maybe it's time to go ultra-differential with a Joelinton or Rodrigo pick?

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Rodrigo!

    Chelsea’s new kit is rubbish. Why do they make rubbish kit for Chelsea all the time

    1. Elfozzie 42
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Wow, there's a lot going on with that one isn't there! Almost like they've added 3 designs into one shirt.
      Reminds me of a keeper or training kit rather than first choice.
      It's not the worse I've seen, mind.

  19. Magic Zico

    Really frustrated can’t get breakthrough to 100K and on course for the worst OR in 11 years. What would you do?

    Lloris (Martinez)
    TAA Dallas Coufal (Konsa Mitchell)
    Salah Son Jota Lingard Greenwood
    Kane Nacho (Bamford)

    A. Son > Rashford
    B. Lingard > Raphinha
    C. Jota > Raphinha
    D. Lingard > Willock, Nacho > Cavani (-4)

      Oh E. Save FT

      1. Vazza
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Is Son to Rashford a serious consideration?

        E for me

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Yes

          1. Vazza
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 3 days ago

            Why? I’m thinking of making the reverse move

            1. Magic Zico
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 3 days ago

              FUL at home with fans and want differential in ML currently 8 pts separate top 3

              1. Vazza
                • 1 Year
                4 months, 3 days ago

                Your the best. I’m not going to waste a transfer on Rash to Son in that case which could easily backfire

                1. Magic Zico
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  4 months, 3 days ago

                  Sure ta

      F) Wait till no-one's watching and slyly remove one of the zeros from the rank?
      To be fair this has been an ultra-weird year, I think you can give yourself a pass on this one.

      I think Son to Rashford makes sense (assuming you don't have Fernandes cash), but D is a bigger differential that could pay off bigger (or could blow up in your face). I'd be tempted to keep hold of Jota given Liverpool's fixtures and fact they are still pushing hard for a CL spot, so B also makes sense, but rolling an FT and going for more maverick picks in 38 is also an option.

      If I had to do one, I'd probably do B.

      1. Elfozzie 42
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Actually on reflection, I'm not sure Son to Rashford does make sense! So yeah B! 😉

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Thx for the thoughts, won’t be surprised that It ends up with save FT 😉

    3. LegendMoon

      I am considering d myself

      1. Magic Zico

        Awesome!

  20. Vazza

    Who to start this week

    A. Watkins
    B. Iheanacho
    .

    1. Elfozzie 42
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Given Chelsea generally meagre defence and the fact they will want to take revenge I'd be tempted with A.
      Spurs can easily give up a few goals and Grealish is back in the reckoning for a start.

    What’s the best 2nd last FT of the season?

    A) Dias to Dallas
    B) Dias to Shaw

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      A

    2. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Im bringing in Dallas ahead of Shaw

    3. Elfozzie 42
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Dallas I think, but Shaw's not a terrible pick.

    4. fenomeno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Shaw plays only Fulham i think

  22. fenomeno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Looking at gw 38. Which is the better Pool triple up (TAA+Salah currently):
    a) DCL to Wood + Bruno to Mane
    b) Zaha to Jota (bench 1 of Bruno or DCL)

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      A

  23. AC/DC AFC
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    DDG on £18.2 million a year making a good contribution to UK health and education via PAYE.

    https://salarysport.com/football/premier-league/highest-paid/

    2nd highest pay after Bale.

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Think DDG will get his last appearance in front of the Old Trafford audience against Fulham?

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        I guess so.

        He's been a great keeper.

  24. AC/DC AFC
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Who is holding onto Bruno or Cavani and Greenwood or Rashford for the Wolves game?

  25. Shark Team
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 2 days ago

    Do you think Bamford will keep starting?
