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.

    Is there something the Zambian Witch Doctor forgot to tell us about Raphinha?

      Anyone keeping Ings due to his DGW on 27?

      I mean he's playing City in that double so surely not that nice of a double.

    Are Chelsea really slight favourites (4/6) to progress against Atletico Madrid (11/10)?

    This makes no sense at all.
    Suarez to hand it to them.

        Apart from 2018/2019, PL sides have hardly performed well in the CL.

        almost as much of a joke as Man City being favourites to win the event every season since 2016.

        See you at full-time.

      Raphinha is surrounded by bunch of DONKEYS except Dallas.
      Doesn't deserve to play for a championship team like Leeds.
      Just when I captained a differential who's in form and primed to give points, all his assists are going to waste

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Why did he mess up the best chance of the game himself then?

        1. jason_ni
          • 5 Years

          Touche

        2 months, 13 days ago

        Bamford captained himself this week

        1. richarlison2348
            2 months, 13 days ago

            He probably does it every week as motivation to do well, sounds like a good strategy

      2. Forza Papac
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Starts Dallas (AVL), Ben White (wba), or Mee (tot, LEI)?

          Ings goal preferable to a Leeds CS right for Ings + Dallas owners?

          1. Super Saints
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Oh yes but won't happen
