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.

      The biggest double GW in the history of the game is coming

        big in what way exactly? With so many teams playing twice, most teams can easily have a minimum of 9 double week players so I don't see where the opportunity is to make progress up the ranks. This game isn't about how many points you get, it's how it compares to everyone else.

    Dallas goes to the Wall of FPL legends, right up next to Clint Dempsey

    It is a bloody outrage that Raphinha has no attacking returns this gameweek

    Seriously

    Has set up sitters throughout both games and plonkers like Cooper, Llorente, Roberts and others have consistently missed easy chances.

    JOKE

    Leeds breaking LiveFPL. If that doesn't define this season.

    1. Daniel - When to BB?
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Dallas specifically

    2. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Checking live fpl when clean sheets can still be wiped is asking for trouble

  20. Daniel - When to BB?
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    Well hope you used those money wisely by going Strujk instead

    1. ajay_kl +42
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      I did! Went for Strujik over Dallas to do Antonio to Ings and now gonna sell Antonio for a hit

    With KWP out and hopefully Romeu out for a while too now it is definitely target Soton defence season once again.

    DCL looks an even better option next week now for sure.

    1. Daniel - When to BB?
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      I already sold Ings for him

    Selling Dallas was one of the biggest mistakes I've made this season. And I did it to keep Mitchell >.

    Dallas broke the snake. Phew, note to self, always have players in the last match of the gw. Makes the cheap red wine sweeter!
