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.

        That literally was tackle of the season is the funny thing

          Kimpembe vs lille is the best tackle of any season in Europe

      Haha classic, whenever it's a rivals player there could be 10 men in the box and nobody bothers blocking the shot.

      When it's your player Romeu turns into a Usain bolt/Terminator hybrid to deny it

      Dallas and Raphinha owners/captainers robbed one more time

        Two of the worst defences in the league playing a 0-0...

        Bamford becoming a donkey the week we captain him

          Trippelcap here. Know it was a risk, but almost going into depression. I’ve never gotten anything out of that chip.

          He's been a donkey all season. He just gets a lot of chances. Usually.

        1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Hoping to be taken down for a penalty

        2. mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          He was calculating his dgw points in his head

        3. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Trying to get the right angle

        4. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          He captained Bamford.

        5. Garth Marenghi
          • 5 Years

          Too lefty

      • MoSalad
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Oh well. On the bright side Ings should come on for his 1 pt cameo soon.

      • EmreCan Hustle
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Leeds used to be a fun team.

      • Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Was never going to be a Raph G Dallas A... it’s a DGW after all, disappointment guaranteed.

      • Bookkeeper
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Raphi injured?

        1. DAZZ
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          No

          1. Bookkeeper
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            didn't look comfortable after the tackle

      • Sack The Glazers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        I have triple Leeds, why?

      • Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Ings can come on and score probably still be a net green arrow with all the Dallas and Meslier CS he’ll bust

      • Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        So excited for all these new Raphinha owners to sell him after this DGW flop.

        Had all the points since GW15, want all of 'em after this DGW too 😉

        1. TheBiffas
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Same here

          • LE CHARO
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Many will keep for GW29

        2. Bullet Eder
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Harvey Barnes in for Grealish for a hit? Or just play Ben Mee?

          1. LE CHARO
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 19 days ago

            I would get Barnes in. Great fixtures after DGW26 for Leicester

        3. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Raphinha should have been booked since he ain't injured

        4. mbglo
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          As a triple defender owner in this game, I like 0-0!

        5. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Adams goal chopped off

        6. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Just realised that a 0-0 isn't too bad for me. Hold!!!

        7. GROBARI
            3 months, 19 days ago

            This is why Leeds players are Leeds players...

          • ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Raphina should be on 1 goal and 5 assists this gw

          • Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            No Goal I think

          • KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Is that Ings warming up?

          • TheDragon
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Leeds double gameweek - 0 goals

            Obviously

          • Albrightondknight
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            So why is Tella not booked for trying to get that penalty?

            1. Tambling5
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 19 days ago

              Referee too embarrassed at his own gullibility

            2. richarlison2348
                3 months, 19 days ago

                VAR can't give yellow cards

            3. Saka_me_sideways
                3 months, 19 days ago

                Neither team can defend, both love attacking. This should be an absolute goalfest.

                0-0

                That conspiracy vs Southampton that was mentioned inn Saturday growing legs...

                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 19 days ago

                  Utter incompetence by the ref.

                  • 7 Years
                  3 months, 19 days ago

                  Gave the penalty to get us off the scent

                • 3 Years
                3 months, 19 days ago

                Here come Saints fans saying ref decisions cost them a match again

                1. Bushwhacker
                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 19 days ago

                  "I wasn't ready" . . pathetic.

                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 19 days ago

                  Playing Che Adams costs them far more matches

                  I mean it’s so obvious now
