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.

    Don't own ings or leeds defence... guessing an ings goal is better than Leeds Cs?

    Any Liverpool Fans here?

    Talk to me about Curtis Jones, how likely is he to start both games next week?

    Is he the best cheap midfielder just for the DFW?

      Jota on the mend, and back in training. Probably won't play both games, but could hit the ground running...

        1. Wild Rover
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Because he keeps passing to Cooper, Roberts and Lorentz instead of Bamford..

        No words can describe the absolute misery I am in right now. Captained Raphinha over Bamford and all I’ve gotten is a massive red arrow

            You having a laugh? He should have minimum 5 assists at this stage over the 2 weeks. Bamford gets 1 sniff and it’s a goal. Baffled

        Also, what household item you going to destroy when you see Mo putting him on the bench?

        Bamford is a worse finisher than Roberts.

        Raph been cursed by a witch doctor

      • columbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 month, 27 days ago

        Stuck between Ings to Dcl/Vardy for no hit, or Raphina and Ings to bench player and Kane for a -4.

        Raphina would be benched regardless.

        Thanks for any help!
