Dugout Discussion

Possible formation change for Southampton with Ings in starting XI to face Chelsea

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has possibly changed formation going into Double Gameweek 25.

With Kyle-Walker Peters (£4.7m) sidelined for the Saints due to a hamstring injury picked up in Gameweek 24, the Austrian is without a senior right-back.

The solution appears to be a back three, which was trialled briefly in that GW24 defeat to Wolves when Mohammed Salisu (£4.3m) replaced Walker-Peters after 72 minutes.

Hasenhuttl hinted at a change of shape in the embargoed section of his pre-match press conference on Thursday.

“If you have no players in one position, then it is always an option to think about a change of shape. This is not something that is too difficult to change quickly, especially when you have had a week to prepare.” – Ralph Hasenhuttl

The potential change of formation would also match Southampton up with Thomas Tuchel’s wing-back system.

Over 600,000 new owners of Danny Ings (£8.5m) will be hoping for immediate returns, irrespective of how the Saints set up. Hasenhuttl’s men also face Leeds on Tuesday in the second instalment of their Double Gameweek 25.

There was also a smattering of investment in Jannik Vestergaard (£4.7m) – who could be at the centre of that back three – and James Ward-Prowse (£6.0m), with both players starting.

It is also possible that Hasenhuttl’s preferred 4-2-2-2 formation remains, which could see Jan Bednarek (£4.9m) operate at right-back.

Che Adams (£5.8m) is once again on bench duty, while Stuart Armstrong (£5.5m) is not part of the matchday squad. Asked by BT if the Scotland midfielder is injured, Hasenhuttl replied:

Yes, a slight injury. Hopefully not too long. Again, was punished after two games in three days. A little bit [of an] issue with his muscle.

On Thursday, the Southampton manager had said of the club’s injury situation:

Kyle Walker-Peters is another who is out definitely for the game, for a few weeks maybe. Hopefully, there is nobody else [out apart from Walker-Peters, Theo Walcott and Ibrahima Diallo].

Tuchel, meanwhile, continues to keep faith with Marcos Alonso (£5.7m) at left wing-back as Ben Chilwell (£5.8m) is benched for the fourth time in five gameweeks.

Kurt Zouma (£5.4m) earns a rare start alongside Antonio Rudiger (£4.6m) and Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.7m), while Reece James (£5.0m) returns at right wing-back after missing out on the Gameweek 24 starting XI.

N’Golo Kante (£4.9m) is preferred to first-choice penalty taker Jorginho (£4.7m) in midfield.

“Right now we have three strong midfielders with [Mateo] Kovacic, Jorginho and Kante, which I’m absolutely happy [with].

“They are, in the moment, the core of our game and the core of our team with quality, mentality, organizing and the structure. I want to have minimum two of them on the pitch.” – Thomas Tuchel

Mason Mount (£6.8m) and Timo Werner (£9.2m) will rove behind striker Tammy Abraham (£7.2m), who overcomes a knock to start.

Edouard Mendy (£5.1m) is also back between the sticks for Chelsea. Tuchel stated this week that the Senegal goalkeeper remains first choice ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga (£4.7m), who started the 2-0 win against Newcastle in GW24.

Southampton XI (3-4-1-2): McCarthy; Salisu, Vestergaard, Bednarek; Bertrand, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Djenepo; Minamino; Ings, Redmond.

Chelsea XI (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Zouma, Rudiger, Azpilicueta; Alonso, Kante, Kovacic, Reece James; Werner, Mount; Abraham.

      (k)Ings, McCarthy & Minamino

      Plus I hate Chelsea! Let's go! 😀

        Wow nice differentials there. Could be a big upside for you there over everyone else when they thrash Leeds next game.

      3. Punty McPuntface

        Got a feeling minamino is going to serve you well

    2. Fred54

      I forgot I even owned him, never a good sign.

        😛

        Yeah, I just hope he makes 60mins without breaking down....

    Anyone else hope they get a lot of FPL points today?

      The chat is better when we don’t

    2. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
      • 7 Years

      We all own the same players

    3. Bury94

      I only own Salah today, who most people have, not many points coming my way!

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years

        Took him out on WC for Kevin De Blanke

    Fun Fact: Southampton broke their own club record last weekend recording 6 straight League Defeats for the first time in their history.

    Can they break yet another record again today and make it seven ?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Play down?

    2. JBG
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      As long as Ings scores, they can keep breaking that record.

    I'm looking at a -8 this week for BB even though I have 2 FTs!

    How does this look?

    Coufal, Grealish, Antonio, Ings > Kane, Watkins, Maja, Tete -8

    1. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Why not just but players you want and bench the rest like a normal week? Can't really give an opinion without seeing the revelant context, though.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Because I want to BB this week.

        Team would be:

        Martinez Pope
        Cancelo Stones Digne Burn TETE
        Salah Son Fernandes Gundogan LOOKMAN
        Bamford KANE WATKINS

        The key thing about all the guys I'm bringing in is that it also sets me up for 29. I would have 8 players in place already for 29.

        1. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Okay I can see the logic there. I'm not fully convinced, since the BB plan is based on the GW29 plan and vice versa, so there seems to be a redundancy/overlap in the rationale to make these moves. My main question would be:

          Who else could you bring in for GW29 and when, since you already have the key players, no? Would you likely be going with a player or two short, or otherwise having to take hits when the GW arrives?

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Save 2 FTs and then take out Gundo/Salah for two guys that play in 29.

            I'd then field:

            Martinez
            Burn Tete
            AUBA RAPHINHA Son Lookman
            Kane Watkins Bamford

            Survive GW30 and then WC in 31.

            1. Deulofail
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Okay, at that point, you may as well take a hit for the best defender you can affod for GW 29 & 30. So long as that's not part of your decision making to choose this strategy now. I guess this all works quite well, but I can't be bothered to figure out how your team would look in the following few GWs. If you can live with that, holding the Leeds players, and maybe missing out on an extra fixture or two here and there, then go for it. I just can't help byt think there's a lot of compromise regarding the BB woulf might really want ideally and the team you might want ideally in the next few gameweeks, and again the ideal team for GW29 and 30. But at least the fixture puzzle works reasonably well.

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      3 forwards for 2 😮

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Ah crap it's not Maja it's Lookman.

    3. DandyDon
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Did the same last week for BB (-8) but got a huge rank rise. Actually I think the only two times I’ve ever done a -8 were this season and got decent green both times.

      Not bad if you don’t mind the Fulham players moving forward. I’m considering Maja myself on my wildcard as might be a good option 29.

    4. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Not convinced but it could work with (K)ane

  5. Prison Mike
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Best option for DGW26?

    A) BENCH BOOST with 13 doubles plus Bamford and Raphihna - Ings, Adams & Holding -> DCL, Watkins & Digne/Pereira (-8)

    B) TC Son - Just do Adams -> Watkins for free

  6. MikeS
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Which dgw frontline do you prefer:

    A.
    Bruno-salah-son-gundogan-barnes
    Kane-watkins

    B.
    Bruno-salah-son-gundogan
    Kane-watkins-dcl

    1. Forgetmeknot
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      The second. And I say that as a big 5 man midfield fan (I’ve played 3-5-2 all season)

      1. MikeS
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Interesting, thanks.

        That would mean doing bamford to dcl though and I have alot of value tied in bamford (owned since 5.5mn).

        Where's a would just be raphina to Barnes (no value loss)

        1. Forgetmeknot
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Yep I had similar thought. In the end I have tried to ignore value and think who scored more points over the next few gws and think it’s the second. If I need to get Bamford in later on I will but future fixtures don’t look great

    2. DandyDon
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I’d want a Leicester asset over Watkins/DCL so probably 5 man midfield for me. There is so many good options! Shame KDB won’t fit.

  7. Easy Cheesy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Jorgino benching... in my WC team as the cheap enabler for my bb. Argh

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      El Ghazi/Lookman are your friend

  8. Kuzser
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Anyone on FH guys?
    Leaning towards using it based on my team look atm.

    What do you think about this for dgw26?
    Ederson
    Castagne Dias Targett
    Salah Bruno Son Gundo
    Kane Dcl Watkins

    Fabri, Tete, Strujik, Burke

      Absolutely nowhere to hide for Grealish Owners?

      Lucked out with getting Watkins on WC. Love to see it oh yes i do

      1. michaelington
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Are you not worried about the lack of creativity without Grealish? I lucked out with Watkins but think his chances may be reduced

        1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Exactly this. Traore and El Ghazi will on the wing and take more shots instead of assisting Watkins

    5. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      How does this sound for a hit and little flutter?

      Chilwell Pope Ings
      To
      TAA Areola Vardy

      Martinez 1st keeper
      BB next week
      Think TAA smashes it finally

      Cheers

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years

        Any thoughts please?

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Ings has a double in 27
          Otherwise it looks good imo

          1. Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            One is City though
            Cheers

    6. Quan MisTaka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Ings to DCL or Watkins?

      1. MikeS
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Tough one.. Watkins if no grealish

      2. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        DCL - everton's fixtures on 26 look great, could be a great captaincy pick. If Grealish is injured Watkins is not an option

      3. DandyDon
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Deck definately if you can afford it

        1. DandyDon
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Damn auto correct! *DCL

    7. Bookkeeper
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      The Grealish injury is a blessing from a FPL perspective. As an owner it opens up other options now. Been keeping him in my team despite the lack of form recently because of the forthcoming Villa doubles.

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        nothing has been announced though
        so far it's just twitter rumours until we here otherwise

      2. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Yeh but odd time for the injury, changes chip strategy etc

        1. Bookkeeper
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          easy replacement with Barnes or Maddi

      3. fusen
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        As someone who has owned him for a long time I mainly have been keeping recently due to the money I'd lose if selling and I'd probably want him back for the doubles etc.

        He's been plodding along at a very mediocre rate for someone close to 8m for a while now.

        1. Bookkeeper
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          he was reaching the don't buy, dont sell status. Entertaining to watch, nevertheless, he's shot shy. Not quite at the Bruno or KDB levels.

    8. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years

      Come on Ings (C) & McCarthy

      1. Inazuma X1

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years

          Nice pick

      2. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
        • 7 Years

        and Bednarek

    9. ZAMUNDA
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Haven't used WC and won't use it till after GW29:

      Martinez-Fabianski
      Cancelo-Mee-Dallas-Vestergaard-Coufal
      Son-Bruno-Salah-Foden-Gundo
      DCL-Watkins-Bamford

      10 dgw players in 26,
      4 dgw players in 27,
      7 players in blank 29 (and planning to get 4 more players including BHA defence, another Spurs asset mostly Kane, and one or two midfield players mostly by selling Foden and another)

      Your thoughts? 1FT and 2.3 ITB and TC card available

      1. ZAMUNDA
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Currently at 6k and up to take some risk at that point

      2. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        You bench boosting in dgw26?

        1. ZAMUNDA
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          No, used it in GW19

      3. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years

        Plans never work out that far ahead

        1. ZAMUNDA
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Yeah totally, but it's important to have a general plan and change accordingly with updates whether it's injuries or cards you never know.

      4. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        TC DCL this GW
        Bamford -> Diagne
        Vestergaard -> Pereira

        1. ZAMUNDA
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          TC DCL is an option yes! I wouldn't sell Bamford or Vestegaard now as Leeds play in blank 29 and soton dgw27. Cheers mate

    10. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years

      Would be classic FPL if Ings gets injured under 10 mins

      1. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        He cant compete with Kun

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Rewind two years and he could

    11. northstandnoise
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      If not BBing gw26 would there be another opportunity from fa cup semis on 17th apr which is same date as gw32. When would they most likely be rearranged?

      1. DandyDon
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Not sure. There is also a Villa Everton game to fit in some time in future

    12. DK_13
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      The grealish injury makes all Aston villa attacking assets worse right? Specially Watkins? Or am I wrong?

      1. fusen
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        In theory it makes them lose their most creative player so they'll do worse. Football often doesn't work out like that though.

        Considering they've already been struggling to score many, the chances are though that this won't be good for them

      2. northstandnoise
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Watkins is better with Barkley playing

      3. Arteta
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        You're right but somebody else will try to step up and take the responsibility. Watkins, El Ghazi, Barkley, Traore, McGinn. I don't know, we'll see.

        1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          El Ghazi is a selfish player and will take a lot of shots instead is assisting Watkins. Grealish out and El Ghazi most likely to replace him on the left rules out Watkins as a fpl pick imo

        You’d be inclined to think so but look what happened with City and Kev

        Probably yes.
        But we have seen City(totally different level but still) without KDB dominating the league.
        You never know.

      Hoping for an Ings blank as a new owner! Very confusing

      With Ings to DCL as the FT, BB or TC next week chaps?

      Martinez
      Cancelo | Lowton | El Mohamady
      KdB | Bruno | Son | Gundogan
      Kane | DCL | Bamford*

      McCarthy* | Dallas* | Raphinha* | Kilman

      Thanks

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        For BB could do Kilman to 4.7 (-4)

      3. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I would probably BB. Spurs fixtures in 26 is not as great as we think for Kane TC. DCL TC in 26 looks interesting though

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Thanks, would you remove Kilman for a hit then?
          Only thing putting me off is BB is completely based on Leeds.

          Think I’m committed to playing TC on one of the big hitters - Kane, Son, Bruno, Salah or KdB

        2. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
          • 2 Years

          My BB suggestion was more just to get it out the way

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Ok ty

      4. DandyDon

        1 month, 23 days ago

        No point BB with that many single gw players. Must be some hits you can take? Thought you had freehit 29 anyway so no need to hold onto Leeds assets...

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Yes, so cheap though don’t know who to get.
          Plus Leeds 3-0 at Villa earlier on making me think it could be a good fixture for them

      I had a dream that Ings got a red card to go with my Meslier own goal and Bamford captain blank. Make it so.

      repost

      Would you play Mee if Grealish is injured (OR) take a hit to replace him?

      Martinez
      Dias Cancelo Digne
      Salah Bruno Grealish Gundagon
      Kane (TC) DCL Watkins
      - Mee Rafinha Dallas

      BB30

      If bmouth get beat in quarters then semis will be 4 prem teams. Therefore those 4 games (8 teams) would have to be rearranged giving another BB opportunity right? Anyone know what gw that might slot into?

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        No, because the midweek in that gameweek is free and so they can just play then.

        1. northstandnoise
          • 3 Years

          Thanks. Looks like BB next week then

      McCarthy, Vestergard - can't say I enjoy matches where I want a clean sheet, always a chance of a few saves from McCrthy and a Vestergard goal from a set piece I suppose

        Could be gold today down the left

      City have insane squad depth unlike villa. And that's more of an anomaly than a trend I guess..
      My thinking is teams used to double down on grealish and yet he created a lot for the team. With him out I don't think it's going to be a smooth road for them ahead(I could obviously be wrong)
      But still looks like a great time to differentiate away from the villa attacking template though

        I don't know how this became a new post. Was a reply to my own post on the previous page. Apologies
