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.

      1. mynameisq
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

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

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

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Lol, JWP took the FK before the whistle

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    3. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Took the free early.

    4. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    5. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      "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.

    Never
    Trust
    Leeds
    Again

    1. Weak Become Heros

      Im on WC, they’re all gone.

    2. gooberman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      8 months, 6 days ago

      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
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

  4. DannyDrinkVodka
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

  5. Mr. O'Connell
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 6 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
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      That Cancelo 9 point goal was brutal

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    3. Clintymints
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Genuinely heartbreaking stuff

      Nothing coming off

    4. HonestBlatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Brutal. All those within 8 days as well.

    5. Jimmy Boy
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 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
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Camino Aleatorio
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Everybody owns Cancelo- he’s not differential

        Coufal choking is the far worst for your rank

  6. The Tinkerman
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Why was that saints goal disallowed? Bizarre.

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

  7. evilfish
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    The Ref has Dallas in his team

  8. GROBARI
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

  9. Slitherene
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 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

  10. _Ninja_
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Haha

    2. Lindelol
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      haha - would be heartbreaking for me though

  11. Im New Here
    8 months, 6 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
      8 months, 6 days ago

      These 2 commentators are talking a load of nonsense

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

  12. Baines on Toast...

    Crossbar challenge, your life depends on it. James Ward Prowse or messy?

    1. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Messi lol

    2. Clintymints
      • 12 Years

      Messy

      Ronaldinho... if he’s out of prison

  13. HollywoodXI
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

  14. tiger
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Dallas to captain Raphinha was the dream...alas another dream shattered!

    1. Im New Here
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Same same... Captain Raph has been tantalisingly close this GW

      1. tiger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        it's the hope that kills ya

  15. gooberman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Utterly dreadful 1st half

  16. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Chelsea XI: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rüdiger, Alonso, Mount, Jorginho, Kovačić, Hudson-Odoi, Werner, Giroud.

    1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 11 Years

    2. Warby84

    If this ends 0-0 I'll buy a hat on eBay, smother it in chilli sauce and serve it for tea.

  18. djman102
    • 12 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

  19. Bookkeeper
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    still can't get over the chance Raphinha squandered

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 6 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.

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Perfectly timed tackle

  20. El Presidente
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    1. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      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.

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        That's harsh luck dude

  21. Bobby Digital
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Dallas (AVL) to Dier (BUR, ful) for free?

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Nah

    2. ALI_G
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      no way

  22. hullcityfan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Get Ings on the pitch

  23. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Why is there so much Bamford hype on here?

    Guy is absolutely useless imo

    1. tbos83
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Bc many of us bought him for 5.9 and his returns have been great

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Gets lots of chances, some go in.

    3. FantasyClub
      8 months, 6 days ago

      There’s the answer at 47’ lol.
      He’s good value.

  24. tbos83
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Is capping Digne a mad idea?

    1. ALI_G
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      very brave with surely Kane, Salah and Bruno all over >100% EO next week.

    2. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Could be a great shout

  25. Sim Simma 🤷 🔑 🚘
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    1. Jimmy Boy
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    2. FantasyClub
      8 months, 6 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

  26. martyhan
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Ings, grealish and holding to Dcl, Barnes and targett for -4?

    1. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

    Ings was a complete waste of time

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years

      I think there’s a great chance he scores if he comes on
