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.

    How to get Spurs attack?

    A) Bamford/Rashford to Kane/Barnes for -4
    B) Rashford to Son for free

    Had a bigger green arrow at 2-0 but not having Raphinha made huge swings....

    Play Bamford (AVL) or Lowton (TOT, LEI)?

    1. Hulk Smash

    Remember ”Ayling or Dallas?” 😀

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years

      Who is Ayling?

      When I was doing some rejigging I couldn't afford Dallas, but was happy with the returns from Alioski at the time... he scored not long after. Would have been better served had he played 0 of the 180 this GW... but, he's going back to the bench for now, and will be used as a makeweight in some audacious swoop for a midfield general/box to box dynamo/born poacher/the next Cantona.

    So my -4 off Digne, Soucek and Antonio to Dallas, Raphinha and Ings was a moderate success.

  16. Dirty Harry
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Bye bye Ings.

    Too bad 9/10 people above me in my ML had Bam/Dallas/Raph as well.

    My cup tie has gone to a virtual coin toss. The nerves.

    1. Daniel - When to BB?
      • 11 Years

      I lost that one last time 🙁

  18. pjomara
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Would have been so great if it stayed 2-0, but as a Dallas owner, happy anyway

  19. Ha.
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Bruno VC stings a bit, but otherwise can’t complain

    Now need to decide on Kane or No Kane

  20. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Members area suggesting...

    Dallas 38
    Meslier 34
    Bamford, Raphinha 29

    1. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
      • 7 Years

    2. Daniel - When to BB?
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

    3. Sloane426
      • 1 Year

      Nope

    4. Sloane426

    5. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years

    300k green arrow - finally a decent week 🙂

    Felt I should've got more form raphinha though

    (sorry for the brag, i haven't had any good weeks really this season)

  22. HonestBlatter

    1. Tinkermania
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      0-3

  23. Daniel - When to BB?
    • 11 Years

    Raphinha captainers won 5pts against Bamford ones. Congrats Mark

    1. Coys96

  24. Arteta
    • 5 Years

    Sooooo who captained Dallas?!

  25. FantasyClub
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Ings flopped big time. Will not be coming back into my team. Especially not the way Southampton are playing

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 21 days ago

        They could have won this game easily . . .just not taking the chances. And the ref stops them when they do.

        1. FantasyClub
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Don’t blame the ref dude. They were shite period.

      2. Towsor44
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Argh, Raph yellow cost me reaching 100 points!

      3. teneighty
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Just 15k rank drop with Ings(C) feels ok. Could have been a lot worse.

      4. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        42 or 43 pts today!!! Wow!

        Mega haul!

      5. BeWater
          1 month, 21 days ago

          I would have burned a transfer so I got Ings in for Antonio before getting Kane. Turns out burning a transfer isn't as bad as burning points.

          Imagine if Raph had really decent players around him. How he keeps making these runs when the rest around him aren’t good enough to pick him out.
