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.

    1. GROBARI
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 28 days ago

      Snow weeks will win.

      A season or two back there was a 22 odd average.

    5. djman102
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 28 days ago

      Probably the week all but 2-3 games were cancelled due to a winter storm. Tevez was the only player who hit double figures I think.

      1. Wild Rover
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        Timmy Cahill was top scorer

          Dodgy penalty ; he's not playing well so that's what you're relying on.

              Salah or Barnes?

              • 7 Years
              7 months, 28 days ago

              When people say a player has ownership of "EO" what does EO stand for?

                  7 months, 28 days ago

                  Effective ownership—accounts for captains, so it can be above 100%

                Effective ownership - incorporates captains where ownership is 200% for

                Effective Ownership and it increases because of captaincy - thats why its called as effective ownership.

              I've currently got Ings, Bamford, Dallas and Raph in my 11 for next week...

              Feel like hits will just backfire

              1. Niho992
                • 3 Years
                7 months, 28 days ago

                Same. Thinking to use WC.

                1. Mr. O'Connell
                  • 9 Years
                  7 months, 28 days ago

                  Thinking of just playing the lot of them. Be classic if they troll just after the double.

                  1. Bookkeeper
                    • 4 Years

                    i have them all and likely to keep them, they due!

                    If i dont WC i will play 3 of them and bench Dallas probably.

                • 5 Years
                7 months, 28 days ago

                Nope. One of plenty of good options.

              2. TheDragon
                • 3 Years
                7 months, 28 days ago

                Ask those who triple captained Bamford this week

                • 5 Years
                7 months, 28 days ago

                Kane, Bruno, City mid, DCL - All are good options.
                If Grealish is fit, him/Watkins is worth a shout as well.

                • 5 Years

                Probably a SGW for him.

              Best option;

              A) Ings >> Watkins

              B) Ings, Digne >> Kane, Struijk (-4)

              Would TC Kane.

              Worth the -8 hit?:

              OUT - Justin, Sterling, Wood
              IN - Stones, Barnes, Kane

              Thanks in advance 🙂

                Enjoy the second half points fest?

              Rather pretentious of someone to use the label "casual" to those who decided to captain Bamford (who is one of this year's leading points scorers) in a decent double game week. It is a decent choice, especially if you are using bench boost chip next GW.

                Spoken like a true casual

                He's just a boring troll. Don't worry about it - perfectly sensible decision.

              Harrison hooked again.

              Roberts survives...

              Oof, Raph subbed?

              Thought Raphina was off then

              Imagine being Harrison and getting subbed off before Roberts

                Because Harrison is such a talent.
