Leeds United player’s FPL awards revealed
Before 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League posted online this summer, Leeds United and other Premier League clubs have revealed their players’ FPL awards.
The first four players were announced earlier on the club’s social media accounts, with Illan Meslier priced at £ 5million, Liam Cooper at £ 4.5million, Raphinha at £ 6.5million and Patrick Bamford available for £ 8million.
Which member of the Leeds United squad will make your starting XI on the opening weekend? We take a look at our top five players from last season and how much they will cost you at the start of the 2021/22 season.
Patrick bamford (BEFORE)
20/21 points: 194
21/22 Price: £ 8million
Selected by 45.2% of teams at the end of last season, Patrick Bamford rewarded them with 17 goals, 8 assists and collected the second most FPL points of any Premier League striker.
With a season of Premier League experience under his belt, FPL expects another top season from the Leeds United striker, raising his price tag from £ 6.6million to £ 8million.
Less good deal than last season, but still lower than Jamie Vardy’s end-of-season prices (10.2), Timo Werner (9.2), Firmino (9.1) and Martial (8.6), who all scored fewer points for their FPL managers.
Stuart dallas (MIDDLE)
20/21 points: 171
21/22 Price: £ 5.5million
So good, they must have made him a midfielder this season! Stuart Dallas was phenomenal for Leeds in our debut season, taking home the top three prizes in our Player of the Year awards.
He was also a great addition to any FPL manager’s defensive line! Purchased for £ 5.5million, he became the Premier League’s most successful defender after scoring 8 goals and contributing with 2 assists.
Although he made 18 of his 38 appearances in defense, FPL placed him in midfield after being 10 points clear of Liverpool’s Andy Robertson in second place, while Premier League POTY Ruben Dias n ‘was able to accumulate only 142 points.
Illan Meslier (GKP)
20/21 points: 154
21/22 Price: £ 5million
The most underrated FPL signing of the 2020/21 season? Selected by just 8.5% of teams at the end of the campaign, Illan was available for £ 4.5million from the start and scored 154 points.
Breaking the Premier League record for most clean sheets by an Under-21 keeper, just two keepers (Martinez and Ederson) had a higher point total, but both came with a higher price tag.
With a slight price increase for 2021/22, to £ 5million and with another full season of first-team experience, Illan still represents a fantastic bargain.
20/21 points: 133
21/22 Price: £ 6.5million
30 games, 6 goals and 9 assists, Raphinha proved to be a great FPL buy in his debut season with Leeds United, leaving managers with one question; when are we going to start earning points for nutmeg?
Costing just £ 5.5million, the attacking midfielder has risen by 133 points and with only a slight increase for the coming season, must be a godsend compared to those with similar outings. Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cost FPL managers £ 11.3million but brought in just 131 points.
Luc Ayling (DEF)
20/21 points: 100
21/22 Price: £ 4.5million
Along with Stuart Dallas and Gjanni Alioski, Luke Ayling was our third defenseman to accumulate 100 FPL points last season.
A legend in the eyes of Leeds fans after his league exploits, Luke was only selected by 2.7% of FPL managers, but only two defenders with a lower price tag gained more points.
Playing all but 20 minutes of our 38 Premier League games last season, Ayling was integral to a defense that kept 11 clean sheets and allowed 7 points in games against Sheffield United and Southampton.
