Harrison and Raphinha impress, Bamford latest: FPL Double Gameweek 22 notes

In an entertaining clash in east London, a Jack Harrison (£5.5m) hat-trick saw a depleted Leeds United side produce a 3-2 win over West Ham United.

Our Scout Notes article reflects on the key Fantasy Premier League (FPL) talking points from the fixture.

HARRISON NETS HAT-TRICK

Jack Harrison had not scored twice in the same game for Leeds in his previous 135 appearances for the club, but netted an impressive hat-trick against West Ham on Sunday afternoon.

The winger has now produced four goals in his last two starts, having supplied just one assist across his previous 15 Premier League outings this season.

“I’m very happy for him because he puts in a lot of effort. Today, the performance of Raphinha, Harrison and Dan James was good. They complimented each other very well and we had an offensive capacity we didn’t have in the last game.” – Marcelo Bielsa on his front trio’s performance

For Harrison, it’s a timely return to form, with a home tie against Newcastle United up next in Gameweek 23, which could potentially turn into a double, though that is purely speculation at this point.

Even if that doesn’t come to fruition, the longer-term prospects look pretty good regardless, as sixth-placed Tottenham Hotspur are the highest ranked team Leeds will face right through up until mid-April.

Harrison’s whopping 20-point haul – which surpassed his previous high of 16 away to Burnley last season – shouldn’t detract from the performance of Raphinha (£6.5m), however, who was unfortunate to leave the London Stadium with just six-points, after hitting the woodwork and also supplying the assist for Mateusz Klich’s (£5.2m) disallowed goal.

The Brazilian has now played a direct hand in 10 of Leeds’ 24 Premier League goals to date, emphasising his talismanic status at the club.

It’s also worth noting that the Brazilian created three big chances for his team-mates against West Ham, whilst also attempting three shots himself.

BAMFORD LATEST

The best FPL forwards to consider as Calvert-Lewin and Antonio replacements 7

Meanwhile, Leeds’ injury crisis was highlighted by the fact Scottish 15-year-old Archie Gray (£4.5m) was once again on the bench, whilst during the match, they lost another two players to hamstring injuries inside 20 minutes: Junior Firpo (£4.7m) and Adam Forshaw (£4.5m).

As for Patrick Bamford (7.7m), the forward didn’t travel to the capital, with Marcelo Bielsa providing an update on his fitness shortly after the full-time whistle:

“He has not reinjured himself, but we thought it would be premature he came back. For example, Rodrigo coming on is also linked to not competing in a long time and if he had come on in the first-half it would have been too long for him. That’s why we split his time with Bate. One thing is to be healthy and another is to be on form.

It gets complicated because players come back and then we lose others. We will see how we can solve it. Bamford could be an option (for the next game), but also after a long period of inactivity and slightly less chance Shackleton and Roberts.” – Marcelo Bielsa

BOWEN DELIVERS AGAIN

Jarrod Bowen (£6.7m) found the back of the net once again on Sunday, with today’s goal taking his tally to six for the season.

It could have been more, however, as his late miss – which he really should have headed – denied West Ham a late equaliser.

Elsewhere, Aaron Cresswell’s (£5.3m) performance stood out, as he once again bossed the bonus and is averaging six-points per match since his return, whilst Michail Antonio (£7.9m) also bagged an assist, his seventh of the campaign so far.

However, he did look a little leggy towards the end, which David Moyes touched on after the game:

“We noticed that as well. But it is difficult when you have to play. He is one of our key goalscorers. We were chasing the game from 15 minutes in and it was really difficult to change him. He was out on his legs after the game but again what can we do?” – David Moyes on Michail Antonio looking tired

The West Ham boss also offered an update on Tomas Soucek (£5.7m) and Kurt Zouma (£5.4m), both of whom are recovering from Covid:

“He could be in contention but everybody coming back from Covid you are not sure of their ability, how they are feeling or what their symptoms are. So, those things make it very difficult to make a judgment. You also check every day to see if somebody else is going to get it.” – David Moyes on Tomas Soucek

“Not at all as he is just recovering from Covid” – David Moyes on Kurt Zouma’s chances of playing in Double Gameweek 22


West Ham United XI: Fabianski, Coufal, Dawson, Diop (Perkins 87), Cresswell, Lanzini, Rice, Bowen, Fornals (Yarmolenko 69), Vlasic (Masuaku 61), Antonio

Leeds United XI: Meslier, Dallas, Ayling, Struijk, Firpo (Hjelde 23), Forshaw (Bate 22, Rodrigo 65), Koch, Klich, Raphinha, Harrison, James

      At least it's a GW1 team, not one of those one week wonders. Cudos.

        Could still be used for gambling purposes

    I've got quite healthy TV (£107), and am pretty happy with my team, so their actual cost is not a big consideration. As a potentially long term move, would you go ...

    A) Sterling
    B) KDB

    Many thanks in advance

        Their non-pen xG per 90 is pretty much identical. But I'd feel more comfortable with KDB.

        Folks, Bernardo to Raphinia or save ft?

        1. DRIZ ✅
          • 10 Years

          sAVE

        2. BeWater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Bernardo's stats with KDB in the team aren't close to Raphinha's. I would probably do it if nothing else pressing.

        3. BrockLanders
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          That's a good move tbf

        4. dabber7
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 1 day ago

          I'd go for it personally

        5. Cammick
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 1 day ago

          I'm leaning this way or Gallagher
          Depends on dgw updates

      4. BrockLanders
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Foden & Dalot to Bowen & Digne -4??

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Way too early to be asking

          1. BrockLanders
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            Oh I know. But 5mins before the Friday deadline?

            1. Sun Jihai
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              4 months, 1 day ago

              Foden still a pretty decent way into the Man City fixture run (SOU, BRE, NOR) given everyone has Cancelo and KDB is expensive. Not sure Villa keep CS's, especially if the DGW is vs. Leeds rather than Burnley. Wait and see.

        2. BeWater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Don't think I'd sell Foden with sou, BRE, nor coming up.

        3. DRIZ ✅
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Digne has had shocking season

          1. NorCal Villan
              4 months, 1 day ago

              Digne seemed to be a different player yesterday, but I just can’t get the bad taste of GWS with negative points and bonehead decisions out of my mouth. As a Villa supporter I really hope he delivers but as fantasy manager nowhere near willing to take risk he presents

              1. Yes Ndidi
                • 2 Years
                4 months, 1 day ago

                There is plenty of decent competition at LB as well. I know he's now first choice, but Targett and Young are still options should he slip up.

          2. acidicleo

            Can you not find another route to bowen?

          If Leeds do get double in week 23 presumably Raphinha would not be able to play second game assuming selected for Brazil squad for games v Ecuador on 27 Jan and Paraguay on 2 Feb?

          1. BrockLanders
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            More than likely. Harrison could be a good option

          2. Bertonian
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            4 months, 1 day ago

            Game would be on 5th Feb if it happened so should be ok

        5. Totalfootball
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Is GW23 a DGW?

          1. BrockLanders
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            Looking like it for Villa and possibly Leeds

            Possibly, no one will know until we have confirmation.

            • 2 Years

            Expected to be available for Brentford.

            • 1 Year

            Haven't seen anything. Did see people analysing his Instagram and concluding he was out of the country.

          3. Bertonian
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            4 months, 1 day ago

            I would say he is more likely to play the hammers on sat now

                Yes that's right..
                I thought I was confusing him with Marco Silva..
                They had a few managers since Moyes then..

                The fans never wanted him because of Liverpool links. Truth is the club stinks in terms of management and I don’t think it’s Rafa’s fault entirely. The Digne fallout maybe but the players aren’t that good

                  Tbh the fans didn’t want him mainly because they didn’t rate him, thought him a football dinosaur with a boring style of football and even though the players are poor they were made even worse under his management

                          Everton’s front office/upper management puts the fun in dysfunctional

                  Ramsdale Sa
                  TAA Cancelo Laporte Tierney Ait Nouiri
                  Salah KDB Son Bowen Saka
                  Dennis Broja Idah

                  Tempted to play it this week and bench Salah and Son. Thoughts?

                    Not too shabby

                    I considered WCding gw24, but my teams not too bad still

                    Not a great idea to have salah and son on bench with that forward line.
                    I would rather get them later when they are available for Fpl.

                    Not sure there’s enough upside for Tierney to hold through multiple blanks. Just get him back when they have doubles. Depth will be tested with no Saka at that point anyway plus no return date for Son I wouldn’t be holding him

                    Looks OK. I'm thinking the same with Salah - he might have one more drop in him, which would be nice. Not sure about double MC defence, and how nailed Laporte is. Personally I'd use Son to make Idah a bit better, but like I say, it looks OK on the whole.

                  What’s the percentage of active teams that have used their second wildcard?

                  Pretty low still I guess?

                  I think I turned left when everyone else turned right, went Everton and Spurs because it looked the right thing to do, and have now ended up with a team that makes my eyes hurt.

                  DDG - Bachmann
                  TAA - Cancelo - Reguilon - Davies - Keane
                  Jota - Moura - Bowen - Ramsay - Maddison
                  CR7 - Dennis - DCL

                  I'd probably look to ditch over half these in an ideal world, so am seriously considering 2nd WC.
                  Am I being too pessimistic, or is this a good opportunity to reset and go again, as it were? Still have all other chips available.
                  Any thoughts or input gratefully received.

                    You can put a nice team for this GW... I would only get rid of Reguilon/Davies for Digne/Laporte... Apart from that, you can get a nice score next week.

                    Everton have still decent fixtures and I expect them to bounce with DCL and Richa fit. You need to get Salah back so bringing him on WC is also worth considering. The question with Spurs assets is their next dgw. When can it be?

                  The rest of my team is healthy (currently!).

                  Is there an argument for leaving either of these two in my squad until they heal?

                    If you can carry James, Chelsea will have a decent run after their blanks, and he is an exciting option, but with it being so vague, I don't know what to suggest.
                    Dier I'd move I think. There's plenty of other options who should score well before he returns. If he's back and they have a double, deal with that when it happens
