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.

      Snow weeks will win.

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

      9 months, 11 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
        9 months, 11 days ago

        Timmy Cahill was top scorer

        This “casuals” thing is getting lame dude, I’m sure we can all take a look at your team and call you a “casual” in some regard

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

                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
              9 months, 11 days ago

              Same. Thinking to use WC.

                • 9 Years
                9 months, 11 days ago

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

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

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              9 months, 11 days ago

              Nope. One of plenty of good options.

            2. TheDragon
              • 3 Years
              9 months, 11 days ago

              Ask those who triple captained Bamford this week

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              9 months, 11 days ago

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

          • wulfrunian
            • 5 Years

            James nailed for the dgw26?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              9 months, 11 days ago

              Probably a SGW for him.

            • 6 Years

            Best option;

            A) Ings >> Watkins

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

            Would TC Kane.

            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.
