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.

    Ings benching a big kick in the gonads for those that punted on (C). Raph (C) Bam Strujik lets go

        (Though having said that the 2 above me in the mini-league don't have Ings!)

        Sanchez & Ings really pulling it out the bag for me this round 😆

        Huh? Most people in my ML don't have Ings.

  7. jason_ni
    • 6 Years

    As only a bam(c) and rap owner, am I likely to get a green tonight?!

  8. lugs
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    brought Ings in for Ashley Barnes who i didn't know was going to miss the game, so at least i'm 2pts up on that deal (but 4pts down on what my autosub would have got me 🙁 )

  9. waltzingmatildas
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Antonio to ings really backfired. Just think I'm going to stop making transfers!

    1. ‘Tis the Season
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Same same but different

  10. Roy Hudd
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    "Did people really think Ings would start? Etc etc"

    It screams of "Phew, I'm glad he's benched as I didn't get him in and was worried he would do well against a leaky Leeds"... Hahaha.

    1. Studs Up
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Aahh, the hindsight brigade!

  11. Ejaaz11
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Ings benchijg means I need a Leeds win with a clean sheet.

    Opponent has mCarthy and 4 point lead over me and I have Dallas and Ings.

    Not looking good...

  12. El Presidente
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Can someone please explain me why... ffs WHY???????... is Ings on the bench?

    Thank you.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Probably because I bought and captained just for this week

    2. Studs Up
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Wait for Hasenhüttl to log on

  13. Top Lad Dakes.
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Ings was a massive differential for me this week in MLs... damn

  14. Make United Great Again
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Ings isn’t starting! What a DGW flop he’s been. But feels wrong selling with more doubles coming..

    1. WVA
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Sold for Kane

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Such an appealing DGW fixture in 27.

      1. Make United Great Again
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        True. He’s out for DCL.

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      His only contribution in this DGW was making sure Southampton don't have a clean sheet!

      1. D.r.a.c.o
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Hurts but true lol

    4. AMBELLINA PRISE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 5 months ago

      He is rubbish, sell him before his price drops

  15. WVA
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    What a surprise, my big differential this week does nothing and is then benched, huge red arrow again with this team, pointless planning or bringing in double game week players yet again.

    Pope
    Mee Cancelo Dallas
    Salah Bruno Son Gundogan Raphina
    Bamford(c) Ings
    Martinez Antonio Stones Coufal

  16. BeWater

    Che Adams has one attacking return in 11 gameweeks. Brilliantly setting up a JWP free kick by getting fouled 30 yards from goal.

  17. DeuloRad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Ings(c) and Minamino owner here. Guess I'll tune in in the second half

    1. fr3d
      • 4 Years

      Doublefail

      1. Reedy

        Dual 0 Fail

    2. Make United Great Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Ouch

    3. AMBELLINA PRISE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Better make it the 65th minute

      1. DeuloRad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I'll go for 60th min as I own McCarthy and hoping for a cleanie! No Leeds players

    4. Yank Revolution
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Dings and Minaminus....

  18. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Ings on early

    1. Don Kloppeone
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Unlikely to happen before 60mins unless there's an injury or Leeds are winning like 3-0 or more

      1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        25 mins my prediction (hope)

  19. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Best defender for max 5.7 to play from GW26 to GW29, which is not MCI's?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Reguilon.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Snap, ta

        1. Nespinha
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          don't go for Spurs defence....

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Why not? It doesn't matter what side it is: Burnley, Fulham, Palace are some of the best fixtures for any team in the PL. I'd back any team that isn't West Brom or Sheffield United to get at least one probably two CSs from those fixtures.

            1. Snevitz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 13 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              They get rotated all the time, never score goals, don't get assists and don't get any bonus points...and they are over priced.

    2. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Targett/Mings or a Leicester defender if you aren't worried about week 29.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Got Martinez but that's ok for Targett. LEI is an option yes but no 29.

  20. Make United Great Again
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Has Rodgers commented on the severity of Maddison’s injury?

    1. aleksaa2
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      "It's just his hip. He had an issue with it last season. He's just felt it on a corner that he took, so we'll see how he is over the next couple of days."

      1. Make United Great Again
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Hmmmm. Could be on the bench, could start. Not conclusive 🙁

  21. Don Kloppeone
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    You gotta laugh - kick after kick in the balls!

    Not only did I do Antonio > Ings for this GW like many others but I was 7pts behind in the Cup with Ings + Raph as my differentials. Now I need Raphinha to score > 7pts to go through!

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Does your rival have Ings?

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        No we both have Bamford (C) + Dallas plus I have Ings and Raph. He is 7pts ahead

    2. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      He will plus hopefully Ings will come on

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Best case scenario is Leeds go wild on the goals front (Bam, Dallas and Raph involved of course) and Ings has to be brought on!

    3. Iwantmorepointsthanks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Raphinha can easily get this!

      You made the correct decision, outcome does not change that.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Hope you're right!

  22. Nespinha
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Talk me out of adding Maja

    DGW26 (will use BB)
    Can easily be benched until playing again in GW29

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Don’t need talking out of him tbf, seems a decent pick.

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Transfering in for who?

      1. Nespinha
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Adams after this week, basically to have players for 29 and WC 30 or 31

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Do it! Don't even think about it.

    3. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Go for it!

    4. Would Ed Woodward
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Talk you out of it? He's only ever played well in League One.

      1. PompeyUpNorth!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        He’s Played well the last 2 games actually. Very well..

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          He asked us to talk him out of it.

          1. PompeyUpNorth!
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Ha ha so he did.. oops

      2. Nespinha
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Just for a cover of 29, plus a double this weekend. Will replace Adams

  23. Pad Randa (The OG)
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Welp, Danny Ings was definitely worth the -4 from DCL. FFS.

  24. Esalman
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Ings benched... Lost count how many times I got burned not captaining Bruno.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Same, perma captain for me now until the end (except Kane TC this week)

  25. PompeyUpNorth!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    I need a Raphina Captain haul big time!

    1. Woy_is_back
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      *Bumford

  26. Woy_is_back
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    I think Saints will win even with Ings benched

    1. Hawk
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      0 - 0..

  27. Greek Shamrocks
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Ings (C) fail!

  28. GE
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Vydra (4.8) from Burnley an option for BB?

    Thinking about Cavani, Ings and Bamford -> Kane, DCL and Vydra (-4) instead of Cavani and Son -> Kane and Barnes.

    Maybe stupid but like the idea of having both Kane and Son.

  29. Sharkytect
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Well hopefully ings gets subbed on at 61 mind same time as dallas subs off, and ings gets a 29minute hattrick.

    Too much to hope for?

    Oh, also lots of raphinha points.

    Don't care about Bamford.

  30. BeWater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    How often does a game look really good on paper with the players you have and then ends up falling apart. I've got Ings, Bamford (c), Dallas and Raphinha. Pretty much the 4 best fantasy assets you could have in this game. Wouldn't be surprised if they all blank.

    Quick Bamford G Raphinha A would make me feel a lot better.

    1. Don Kloppeone
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Same 4 players

      We need Leeds to go crazy with goals from Bam, Raph and Dallas assisting, followed by Ings being brought on to bring the game back and scoring a brace 😉
