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.

    The way they are running on this pitch, they genuinely cannot turn quick. How can a pitch like this be allowed?

      Jeez. How old are you? This is nothing compared to old pitches were like. This would have been a good pitch 15 years ago and back.

        The problem with that is this isn't 15 years ago

    Why is the referee disallowing a perfect goal????

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Lol, JWP took the FK before the whistle

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      They took it before he blew up, the ref was right to be fair

    3. Rainer

      Took the free early.

    4. mynameisq
      • 7 Years

      Because he said to wait for the whistle and the player didn't

      "I wasn't ready"

      Match.Fixing.

      The ref got paid to eliminate One goal. His job is done. A uniformed bag man will deliver the money by lunch tomorrow in an Amazon box.

      Im on WC, they’re all gone.

      It was well documented how Leeds struggle without Phillips but people still went ahead and piled into Leeds. Its looking like no goals scored in either game

    3. FantasyClub
        2 months, 20 days ago

        That’s what everyone said about Bamford then he hauled then everyone wanted him back lol

    4. DannyDrinkVodka

      Dallas to Raphinha would have saved my week..........classic FPL

    5. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Rank them in order of disappointment:

      Cancelo outside of foot mis v Arsenal
      Coufal s*** his pants 1 on 1 vs Sheff U
      Romeu super tackle to deny Raph/Dallas mega combo

      Best part of 40 points there

      Might just stop watching the matches.

      1. TomSaints
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        That Cancelo 9 point goal was brutal

      2. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Only affected by the first one, used to cancelo dross finishing by now but it’s still annoying every time

      3. ...al
        • 11 Years

        Genuinely heartbreaking stuff

        Nothing coming off

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Same collection...just add the Maddison --> Raphinha -4

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Brutal. All those within 8 days as well.

      5. Jimmy Boy
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        I've had all three too, although admittedly don't have dallas for the third. Feel the Coufal one was the biggest kick in the teeth as everyone else in my league had cresswell who had been outscoring cou every week

      6. FPLHaggis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        I have Coufal, Cancelo, Raph. Brutal. Cancelo the worst.

        1. Camino Aleatorio
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Everybody owns Cancelo- he’s not differential

          Coufal choking is the far worst for your rank

    6. The Tinkerman
      • 5 Years

      Why was that saints goal disallowed? Bizarre.

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Ref wasn't ready. Needed to scratch his arsenal or something.

    7. evilfish
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      The Ref has Dallas in his team

    8. GROBARI
        2 months, 20 days ago

        I was waiting for this game more than CL games tonight. So yeah....

      • Slitherene
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Which move to take a hit for?

        Martinez ¦ Forster
        Maguire Cancelo Lowton*
        Bruno Grealish* Rashford* Gundogan
        Jesus* Ings Bamford
        ¦ Saka Holding Coufal

        2 FT, 5.0 ITB

        A) Lowton, Grealish, Rashford -> Konsa, Son, Salah
        B) Grealish, Rashford, Jesus -> Sterling, Son, Vardy

      • _Ninja_

        HT 0-0 all setup for Ings to come on a grab a yc.

          haha - would be heartbreaking for me though

      • Im New Here
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Why is commentator so baffled - he clearly blew the whistle after the FK was taken

          1. Steve The Spud
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 20 days ago

            These 2 commentators are talking a load of nonsense

            • 1 Year
            2 months, 20 days ago

            Why was he waiting? It's insane. He's literally martialing the Leeds defense for them.

            I’m just going to accept Bamford blanks now. 135 minutes without a goal, breaking all logic and season long stats.

              It's typical that so far my most successful DGW player is Minamino...who has only played in one game!

              • 4 Years

              still can't get over the chance Raphinha squandered

                2 months, 20 days ago

                See above. Was only just over the Coufal one, then it was Cancelos turn. This is probs the worst if the lot tho.

              Everyone expecting Leeds to be Leeds and ZERO goals in 135 minutes of foot. You gotta laugh it through really...

                I’d laugh if I hadn’t TC Bamford. Instead I’ve just finished headbutting the wall for the second time this GW. Fun times.

                    Didn't watch the 1st-half. How close was Raphinia to scoring ?

                      One of the best chances I've seen all season. Had at least five yards on the defensive line at one point

                    2. FantasyClub
                        2 months, 20 days ago

                        He flopped. Took too long to pull the trigger, enough time for Romeu to pull off a brilliant sliding tackle from behind in the box mind you, then Raphinha goes to ground in “agony” from embarrassment more likely lol covering his face
