Ings and Minamino benched as Llorente returns to face Southampton

Double Gameweek 25 has gone from bad to worse for some Fantasy Premier League managers as Southampton name a rotated squad for their Tuesday-evening meeting with Leeds.

Fresh from blanking against Chelsea on Saturday, and giving away a penalty, Danny Ings (£8.5m) finds himself among the substitutes tonight.

The striker was signed by 640,000+ FPL managers for Double Gameweek 25, more than any other asset but his owners now face an uphill struggle for an immediate return on their investment.

Che Adams (£5.8m) and Nathan Redmond (£6.4m) lead the line at Elland Road tonight as Ralph Hasenhüttl lines his troops up in the usual 4-2-2-2 formation.

However, Ings is not the only one to suffer from the Austrian’s rotation as Saturday’s goal-scorer Takumi Minamino (£6.0m) is also on the bench.

Nathan Tella (£4.3m) and Stuart Armstrong (£5.5m) staff the flanks in his absence, either side of James Ward-Prowse (£6.0m) and Oriol Romeu (£4.5m).

Meanwhile, Leeds make just one change from the side that lost 1-0 at Wolves on Friday night.

Diego Llorente (£4.4m) comes in for Jamie Shackleton (£4.8m) to play at centre-back for only the third time this season, his most recent outing lasting just nine minutes before he sustained an injury.

Marcelo Bielsa’s faith in his first-team personnel means another start for this season’s best-value forward Patrick Bamford (£6.9m), who has produced 19.4 points per million spent thus far.

Stuart Dallas (£5.0m) remains at left-back while Raphinha (£5.4m) is stationed on the right-hand side of midfield.

Double Gameweek 25 Line-ups

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Dallas, Cooper, Llorente, Ayling; Struijk; Harrison, Roberts, Klich, Raphinha; Bamford.

Southampton XI (4-2-2-2): A McCarthy; Bertrand, Vestergaard, Salisu, Bednarek; Tella, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong; Redmond, Adams.

    Appreciate thoughts, playing BB26 (no FH left for 29)

    Currently have a bench of:
    McCarthy, Bam, Raphinha, Dallas

    All for a -4:
    A) Bam to DCL (one less player for 29 but may have double in 28?)
    B) Raph to Lookman
    C) Dallas to Aina

    1. OLEgend
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      McCarthy out for someone useful

    2. The VAR Team
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Don't like B or C, so A

  2. Dirty Harry

    Anyone holding Ings or is it a massive see ya later?

    1. GE
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

    2. antis0cial
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      I had high hopes for tonight but benched then not involved. With city in dgw I think there are better options, DCL, Rich, Kane, Vardy

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Already gone, was DGW punt.

    4. Slurpy
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Gone for Kane, easiest transfer I'll make this season.

    5. Gooner Kebab

  3. antis0cial
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Any better options here?

    A) Ings Digne to Kane El mohamady/Aina
    B) Ings to Rich (ignore Kane?)

    Areola
    Digne Dias Lowton
    Sterling Salah Bruno Gundo Raph
    DCL Bamford

    Meslier Ings Coufal Holding

  4. GE
    • 5 Years

    2) Son
    3) Vardy

    Dallas destroyed my OR

    was going from 41k to 28k before the goal and after the goal it was 40k.

    Raph goal improved it to 37k in the end.

    Kind of sideways but Ill take it

    1. Champions League Varane
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Me too only 6k up but I will take it and move on

    Just woke up at 4am here from my hospital bed to check in on the Leeds score...and it's a very good morning for this Dallas captainer 🙂

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Unreal jam. How Leeds didn't concede a few is crazy. Well done!

    2. The VAR Team
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Dallas cap! Hats off for that

      1. The VAR Team
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Feel better! (You probably do already 😉 )

      Looks like Bamford gets 1 bp after all...

      Bloody hell and Raph taking his shirt off

      1. Tinkermania
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Which site?

      2. Tower Bridge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Doesn’t look like it unfortunately.

    • EWH2020
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Dunk to Pereira -4?

    • Champions League Varane
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      So on BB. Remove Raphina/Bamford? The only two singles I’ve got. I’m going to FH 29 so not worrying about that.

      1. Tinkermania
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        yes but not for a hit

        1. Champions League Varane
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 27 days ago

          Would have to be so no?

      2. The VAR Team
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Depends who for, and whether it's free

    • ajay_kl +42
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Anyone tempted by a punt on Siggy for the DGW?

      Considering Ings and Son to Kane and Siggy for a hit to give:

      MARTINEZ
      MEE STONES DIAS
      MADDISON SALAH BRUNO GUNDO SIGGY
      DCL KANE

      1. ajay_kl +42
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        actually not sure i can afford that...facepalm

    • Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Ings to DCL for a hit must be done, right?

      1. St Pauli Walnuts
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        It's a yes from me. Just made the move myself, will do Greal to Barnes for a hit later in week presuming comes through Europa unscathed.

      Got exactly 100 points last GW. On for 100 exactly this GW too...how strange!
      Easily the best 2 GW's of my season...which is not saying much as it has been abysmal!

      1. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      On BB. Still have FH

      Pretty set on Ings > Dcl/Richarlison

      Which move additionally?

      A) Bam > Watkins (-4)
      B) Raph > Perreia (-4)
      C) A + B(-8)
      D) none of the above

      1. The VAR Team

    • House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Already done a -4 to get this BB26 team:

      Martinez Areola
      Cancelo Dias Shaw Rudiger Struijk
      Salah Bruno Gundogan Barnes Jorginho
      Kane DCL Ings

      Should I do Ings to Vardy for a -8? Could be priced out if Vardy rises
