The best Southampton players to consider for FPL Double Gameweek 25

Southampton come under the spotlight as we end our team-by-team look at the clubs with two fixtures in Double Gameweek 25.

After a strong start to the season, the Saints have completely fallen off a cliff, losing their last six games and conceding 20 goals.

As a result, Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers are choosing not to gamble on Saints assets, even with two games in Double Gameweek 25.

So is there anything to suggest Southampton could turn it around in Double Gameweek 25? We assess their FPL credentials in the Premium Members article below

THE FORM

Having started the season in fine form, the Saints hit the skids after a number of injuries to key personnel, particularly in defence.

After beating champions Liverpool, the Saints have lost their last six games by an aggregate score of 20-4.

What was once one of the league’s most solid defences is now the worst according to expected goals conceded (xGC) over the last six games.

Last six matches

The problem can’t just be laid at the door of injuries though.

In the south coast club’s last game against Wolves, they fielded arguably their first choice back-line, and still conceded two goals against one of the most goal-shy attacks in the league.

So can we rely on Southampton assets in Double Gameweek 25? To answer that question in more detail we will have to consider their upcoming opponents and the data behind their key players…

    I think I've convinced myself to go with Kane instead of Ings for gw25. But, I keep seeing comments opting for Ings.

    -- Ings - has the dgw and more differential
    -- Kane - historically, 11G/2A in 13 games against WHU. Furthermore, I would go after Kane for gw26 anyway, but it would require a hit to bring him in.

    Am I overthinking it?

      Wait on the fixtures. If Ings has a triple double that swings it significantly in his favor.

      I'm not looking at these kind of stats again after I transferred in Kane ahead of Leicester because of his "amazing record" against them. Even captained him and Spurs were then shockingly bad and didn't even score.

    Am I understanding this right - so if say Alisson plays for Brazil vs. Argentina on 30th March he'd potentially have to isolate for 10 days upon return and thus not be able to play in GW30 on 3rd April?

    EXCLUSIVE: Government looks set to REJECT Premier League clubs' plea for players to be exempt from hotel quarantine if they play March internationals in 'red list' countries

    The ‘red list’ includes South American nations, such as Brazil, Colombia and Argentina, as well as Portugal, and scores of Premier League players could be selected to play.

    Players have told their clubs they want to travel to affected countries to represent their national sides, which would mean they would be subject to hotel quarantine like everyone else and unavailable for 10 days after their return.
