Analysing the best Leeds United FPL Asset | Premier League


After a long 16 year wait, Leeds United finally made it back into the Premier League. Their impressive game style under their manager Marcelo Bielsa has caught the eye around the country and the world. Their offensive pressing style towards any team even against the so-called “Big six” has not stopped them from playing Bielsa’s style of football.

Leeds have been very poor in defence conceding the second-highest goals in the division (33 goals) with West Bromwich Albion conceding 3 more goals so far. While Leeds have scored 30 goals which is the 5th highest in the Premier League so far this season. Even though their defence has been poor in FPL terms, the Leeds defence has kept 5 clean sheets.

Top 5 Leeds United FPL points scorers are:

Patrick Bamford -Attacker {101 points}
Stuart Dallas – Defender {71 points}
Illan Meslier – Goalkeeper {70 points}
Jack Harrison – Midfielder {67 points}
Mateusz Klich – Midfielder {66 points}

Which Leeds United player is a must have in FPL?

Patrick Bamford: The Leeds striker and highest goal scorer has rewarded his 45.4% owners with a total of 101 points which include 10 goals and 5 assists. This budget striker who was 5.6m has now risen to 6.6m. Bamford is the perfect Fantasy Premier League pick because he is Leeds’ main man and he has been handed penalties so therefore it could be a boost for his owners and could definitely fancy the armband in the double Gameweek 19.

Mr. Versatile Stuart Dallas: The defender who almost plays all the positions except on goal as a striker. He has provided his 14% owners with 71 points which is the 6th highest against defenders. Because Dallas is registered as a defender in FPL he receives 6 points for every goal he scores and so far he has scored 3 goals for his team and provided 2 assists and 6 clean sheets and not forgetting the 5 bonus points.

Leeds United FPL Differentials:

Raphinha: The summer signing for Leeds has found his touch in the last few games. He has been an integral part of the Leeds United attack. He has only a 1.8% ownership after playing only 833 minutes and providing 40 points which include 2 goals, 2 assists, and 4 clean sheets. Raphinha has more attacking explosiveness which is yet to be released and therefore he can turn into a goal scorer as well as a provider as his place on the right flank looks set in the Leeds starting 11.

Ezgjan Alioski: The North Macedonian defender who has excelled on the left flank has produced improved attacking numbers. He has scored 2 goals while keeping 5 clean sheets and racking up 6 six bonus points has moved his total tally to 53 points. For just 4.5m and with only 2.8% ownership and the threat and ability of Harrison along with Alioski could reward his owners with big returns.

With Leeds having a blank in 18th Gameweek but a double gameweek for 19, a double up on Leeds players could do the trick earning maximum points from the exciting team in the Premier League, but with absentees Kalvin Phillips, Liam Cooper, Robin Koch & Llorente unavailable it could backfire the plan.
