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.

    Well played to Mark with the differential Raphinha (c) pick - looks like he is into the top 10k!

    Which DEF would you pick on WC for up to 4.6:
    A) Rudiger
    B) Aina
    C) Vestergaard
    D) sth else
    ..?

    1. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Aina looks tempting

    Raphinha could deliver a serious haul one of these days. I think I'm going to keep him.

      Keeping on WC. First on my bench next gw

    Everyone is happy but there's barely any gain from this.

    Bye Ingsy, hello Harry

      Welcome TC Harry.

  7. HaveYassineChikhaoui

      Out of the cup by a single point thanks to that Raphina goal. Opponent took an 8 point hit to bring in Dallas and Bamford, fair play.

      1. DRIZ ✅
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 15 hours ago

        ouch 8 point hit lead as well

        1. HaveYassineChikhaoui
            4 months, 15 hours ago

            Gut wrenching, probably the best cup run in my 9 seasons playing. If Mee doesn't get a yellow I'm level on points and through on goals scored, fine margins!

      2. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 15 hours ago

        Raphinha matching Bruno but should really be outscoring him by 15 points.

      3. EWH2020
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 15 hours ago

        Was all set on taking Dallas out. Now better to get rid of Dunk?

            Bamford Raphinha Ings my bench... for now!

            1. My heart goes Salalalalah
              • 4 Years

          10. Art Vandelay
            • 10 Years
            4 months, 15 hours ago

            Yep, but think I am going to BB. Otherwise will just start Raph ahead of him.

            Don’t know who to bench?

            Salah, Bruno, Son, Gundo, Barnes
            Kane, Watkins, Bamford

        • BeWater
            4 months, 15 hours ago

            Feel a bit better about BB with Dallas, Raphinha and Bamford now. Never know what you'll get with Leeds but worth the risk I think.

            Horrible foreplay to get the gameweek going, but ended at least with a massive climax.

          • hullcityfan
            • 6 Years
            4 months, 15 hours ago

            Dallas, Meslier and Bamford(c) (also have Ings)

            Great result.

            Consistency this year has been hard to come by. So frustrating.

            1. Hulk Smash
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              4 months, 15 hours ago

              True but ironically the Leeds trio have all been consistent, especially Raphinha since he came in.

            Ings was a waste this game week!

            1) or 2)? 🙂

            1) Cavani, Ings and Bamford -> Kane, DCL and Vydra (-4)
            (Vydra on the bench in BB)

            2) Cavani and Son -> Kane and Barnes

              Southampton.

              Which sub 4.1 defender with a DGW is likely to get more minutes:
