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.

    Dallas could have been on 2 assists now.

    1. BeWater
        2 months, 14 days ago

        He's going to end up on 2 points isn't he!

        1. Little Red Lacazette

          2 months, 14 days ago

          Haha, don't say that.

      Leeds looking lively. But gonna concede for sure

    3. Slurpy
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Raphinha and Dallas could have a couple of assists each

      Struijk with a great clearance

      Raphina(c) and Ings working out well. Got Bamford though.

        Same here. May change soon

    6. KAPTAIN KANE

      Blimey didn’t know Bamford’s EO was 180%!
      Would never have taken the risk with Ings (C) if I knew that was the case, crazy!

      Is his normal ownership as high as 90% then or is it TC increasing it?

        See below it’s killing me too.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE

          Yeah well annoying, oh well TC Kane will make up for it this weekend 🙂

        Just normal ownership being basically 100%

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Wow didn’t realise he was that popular

        haha come on mate you know more than everyone on here

      4. jammie26
          2 months, 14 days ago

          People got him for the double?

      5. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Took a punt on Raph C and even though I have Bamford too that goal dropped me 50k in rank

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Ok my rank is actually rank to start with - but still ...

        2. djman102
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          dropped 25K here. Really need something from Raphinha besides baps.

          Unlucky mate, he's been exceptional against Wolves - just surrounded by donkeys.

        Game so open now and soton defence very suspect, surely a Leeds second due

      7. Patio Kev
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Tells clips the back of Costa.

        This Tella bloke really is a dirty player.

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Costa ran across him. Quite deliberately too.

      8. Bookkeeper
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Raph warming up now. let's go

      9. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Llorente is very suspect.

        Danny Ings to come...

      10. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Bamford genius missing the chance cause he own Ayling not Dallas

      16. El Fenomeno R9
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Sick of Bruno,Gundo,Bamford over 100% EO every GW and their differentials doing nothing

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I have a great idea to help with the issue of EO in the game!

          1. El Fenomeno R9
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            I have too,going from 30% template to 15% now 🙂

            All in now

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              My idea is based on value (profit) held on the player is a multiplier of 100%, so everyone’s will be different for different players

          Another season of casuals.

            It is not casuals.....it's simple math.

        3. The Point About It Is
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Makes no sense to go differential against these guys - it will (and has) only cause you pain.
          2 of them are cheap as well so no excuses.

          1. El Fenomeno R9
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

        Watching your double Leeds defence attempt a clean sheet is a horrible experience.

        In some ways you would rather they concede early so you can relax 🙂

          Could never put myself through that. Dallas is even a bit too much.
