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.

    2. Magic Zico

      The same move here

    3. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I am getting Barnes and Kane

    4. Little Red Lacazette

      I approve this message.

    5. Henning

      Thanx all.

      I think it's sideways, as a combo.

  2. Iceball

    TC Bruno, Son or DCL?

    1. EVILFUK
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I'm going Kane.

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I am planning on Bruno TC

    3. One of Those Days
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bruno or Kane for me

    4. Calculated Risks

      2 months, 19 days ago

      DCL for me flying under radar. Has the best 2 fixtures. Bruno has Chelsea, and spurs have 2 games against teams that can't score, but aren't that bad defensively.

      1. FantasyClub
          2 months, 19 days ago

          After seeing Southampton today DCL definitely has an amazing DGW. Would’ve been Grealish if fit

      AZ with 104 pre baps. He will be smug with a reason on Blackbox for a change. 😉

        Hahaha.

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Did he captain Dallas or something?

        1. SHOWSTOPPERRR

          Tc bamford

      Phew. Thanks Leeds gor holding a green. Heard Tiger Woods in a crash, hope he's OK. All time sports hero for me.

          • 7 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          As a middle aged waster, I feel sorry for the guy and wouldn't wish to be him. He's still a hero for what he's achieved.

      Triple Leeds delivered big time but pity that Bamford couldn't grab another one 🙂

      MARTINEZ
      STONES DIAS MEE
      MADDISON GUNDO SALAH SON BRUNO
      DCL Bamford

      McC, Strujik, Ings, Coufal

      How can you get Kane in this team. 1FT and barely anything in bank.

      Sell Salah? or just do Ings to Watkins

      1. 2OLEgend
          2 months, 19 days ago

          If you are planning to BB, then Ings -> Watkins is the move I'd make.
          If no BB, save FT

          1. ajay_kl +42
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Wasted BB in the last big DGW when Zouma got nothing

        • Forever In Our Shadow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Son and Ings to Kane and Barnes. I think you have enough then.

      2. 2OLEgend
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Sold Raphinha for a hit yesterday as I would be priced out of Barnes with the price rise. Pray with me

            Cue Barnes injury in Europa league...

            • 7 Years

            Barnes for a double. I think you will be fine.

          Have 4.1 for a defender. Who with a DGW is likely to get most minutes:

          A) Mitchell
          B) Kilman
          C) Nathaniel Phillips
          D) Jagielka

              Kane, DCL or Vardy for the double?

              1. Rog.
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                Kane > Vardy > DCL for me

                  • 5 Years

                  Same

                DCL, then kane. Vardy not needed unless u want to chase and have a differential for the sake of it. Barnes and Madds are better value

              Another important lesson. This season go with the template or you are doomed.

              I've never seen such a strong template in 12 years of playing the game

              1. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers
                • 11 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                What template? Do you count weekly templates as well now?

                1. Daniel-The FPL Fanatic 😉
                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 19 days ago

                  Template was Gundo. Template was triple Leeds. Template is Martinez, Template is Bruno etc etc etc

                  2 months, 19 days ago

                  Decision to make with this team, 1FT and 1.2M ITB

                  Martinez Pope
                  Cancelo Dias Shaw Robbo Mee
                  Bruno Salah Grealish Gundog Raphinha
                  DCL Bamford Antonio

                  Question is whether this team is good enough to BB, perhaps with a few transfers. Or should I W/C now and save the BB???

                  Its incredible how Ings scoring in GW 24 wiped the fact he had blanked in all but 1 of the past 10 GWs from peoples minds. Recency bias at its finest

                      Ings was the most obvious trap of all time. Shame on you all for buying, especially for a hit

                        Hindsight much, eh? I did Antonio -> Ings because didn't want to burn a transfer and Antonio was a doubt.

                          West Ham are a much better team than Southampton and not in freefall like the saints. Antonio was a doubt? Yeah but Ings was never starting both games so..

                        If I didn't get Ings would have played Stones

                        ANY CHANCE Bamford sneaks a BAP?

                          In theory he should

                          That would be wonderful but unlikely.
