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.

            I didn't need a wildcard for that.

        As a Raph owner But not (c)

        1. FPL Pillars
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Really? No if it scores you benefit he’s 59% EO

        Do these stupid footballers NOT KNOW they get minus points in FPL for taking their shirt off!?

        So annoying. I bet he isn't in the bonus points now

        1. Keeptrying

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Will Raphinha be at Leeds in the next two seasons? Gem of a player.

      7. Parsnips

          Do I still go Dallas > Pereria????

            I did Dallas to Keane. Plan was to get back Dallas immediately on Saturday.

        • ajay_kl +42
          • 10 Years

          Maybe should go Kane less and play 10DGWers and a Leeds player this next GW

          Am already looking forward to Ralph’s post match interview blaming the ref for their defeat.

          Never has there been such an overrated manager.

          1. Bushwhacker
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Fair comment. But to be fair Southampton should've been 2-0 up in ten minutes.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Captained my lowest scoring Leeds player. Oof

          • 10 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Is Ings out for the double a must now? Seems he’s not trusted for 2 games in a week...

          1. Dannyb
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            That and Southampton are absolute cack.

            They're not scoring against City

            For me, yes. I wanted Son in for Raphina, but no chance now, he hasn't blanked in months. Let's me bring in Pereira at the back too.

              Is it an easy swap to DCL or are there good differentials maybe Richarlison etc
              Just don’t like going back to DCL for a 3rd time and chasing points now.
              Dropped from 30k to 120k in the matter of 3 weeks

            • 7 Years

            With Ings injury history I doubt they want to risk him for 3 matches in 7 days.
