Leeds play twice in Double Gameweek 36. We take a look at their underlying stats and investigate the ownership percentages for the Leeds players. Ahead of matches against Arsenal and Chelsea, we assess the best investment options from the Peacocks.
Leeds have experienced some positive new manager bounce since the arrival of Jesse Marche. Leeds have picked up ten points in their last six Premier League matches. Indeed they have only failed to return points in one of those matches and that was against league leaders Man City.
Gameweek 36 contains matches against Arsenal and Chelsea which look difficult on paper for Leeds.
All the stats in this article courtesy of the Fantasy Football Scout members area.
Leeds have scored just 38 goals in the Premier League season, only six teams have scored fewer. However in the last six matches Leeds have scored nine goals, only five Premier League teams have scored more.
Raphinha is Leeds’ top scoring player so far this season with 10 goals. Jack Harrison is second with seven. Forward Patrick Bamford has made just seven starts this season as a result of injury. This means that Leeds have been lacking a clinical goal scorer.
Raphinha is also top for attacking returns at Leeds this season with 14. Daniel James is second with nine.
Leeds have kept just five clean sheets this season. Only Watford have kept fewer. Leeds have kept two clean sheets since the arrival of the new manager.
Luke Ayling is top for attacking returns across the Leeds defence with five so far this season. However the lack of clean sheets as well as difficult Double Gameweek 36 fixtures means managers are unlikely to invest in the Leeds defence.
