Who do Leeds face?

Leeds face fixtures against Nottingham Forest and Manchester United in their double Gameweek 22 fixtures.

The opposition – Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest are amongst a strong period of form in the last six matches compared to their dire start to the season. The newly promoted side have lost two, whilst drawing one and winning three. Offensively in the same period they rank in the worst six teams for big chances total and shots on target. They also rank mid-table for other key attacking data points.

In terms of defence, Nottingham Forest have kept just two clean sheets in the last six matches. However, in the same period they rank amongst the best six teams for goals conceded, shots conceded, shots on target conceded and headed attempts conceded.

Manchester United

Manchester United are also in a strong period of form. The Reds have won four of their last six matches, losing one and drawing one whilst also scoring in every single game. In the same six matches offensively they rank joint second for goals scored, third for attempts on goal, second for big chances total and first for shots on target.

In the same period defensively, Manchester United kept just two clean sheets. They rank in the best six teams for goals conceded and big chances conceded but do rank the fourth worst in the league for shots in the box conceded.


Both of Leeds opponents are in good scoring form and putting up some solid attacking stats, especially Manchester United. For that reason, it could be wise to avoid investing in the Leeds defence for the double Gameweek.

Both of Leeds’s opponents have also been maintaining some good defensive stats as of late, however both have been underwhelming in terms of clean sheets. This could suggest managers looking to invest in Leeds, could target their attacking players.

Leeds attacking options

Although Patrick Bamford (£7.2m) leads his teammates in terms of non expected goal involvement per 90 minutes this season, his minutes are a risk. The striker has been recovering from a serious injury and failed to start the previous Premier League game.

The standout option at Leeds is Rodrigo (£6.4m). This season amongst all midfielders he ranks first for goals, first for goals in the box, second for attempts on goal and second for attempts in the box. Rodrigo is in fantastic form and has already scored against the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham this season.

For managers looking for a Leeds striker, it could be a wise investment buying into Wilfried Gnonto (£5m). Amongst all strikers in the last six matches he ranks first for total passes and first for successful passes in the final third. Gnonto comes in at a fantastic price which also gives managers the ability to rotate him on and off the bench around fixtures.
