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 vow never to hype myself up for a game of football ever again

      This season is garbage. All the players are knackered.

      3pm on Saturday:

      "Here we go lads, West Brom v Brighton. Let's go!"

    Appalled by the troll Soton manager

    Deserves the sack. Disgusting team selection

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 3 hours ago

      Yet playing quite well.

    2. jammie26

        Good to see Ings benched.

      Terrible pitch, don't see many goals in this game

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 3 hours ago

        Not blaming the pitch for that. . .

    4. Gudjohnsen

      I was looking forward to this game for 5 days.

        This pitch is making me nostalgic for the muddy penalty areas of yore

      • Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 3 hours ago

        Has this pitch been an issue for long?

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 3 hours ago

          Yeah

        2. mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 3 hours ago

          And wide too

        3. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

          Relaid recently

          Was bad in the game before it was relaid

          Since the new pitch a lot of players slipping

          1. Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 3 hours ago

            Yeah its the pre match watering

      • GE
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 3 hours ago

        Vydra an a good option for BB? 🙂

        Can afford Cavani, Ings and Bamford -> Kane, DCL and Vydra (-4).

        Or do Cavani and Son -> Kane and Barnes? (afraid of Son though)

        1. Hulk Smash
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 3 hours ago

          Vydra falls solidly in the category of DGW goggles.

      • jammie26
          4 months, 3 hours ago

          Forgot this was kicking off at 6. Leeds created much?

          1. Mr. O'Connell
            • 9 Years
            4 months, 3 hours ago

            Less than nothing. If that's possible.

          2. Gudjohnsen
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 3 hours ago

            Nothing

          3. Bushwhacker
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 3 hours ago

            Nope ; largely all Saints.

          4. tbos83
              4 months, 3 hours ago

              Nope. Dire game so far.

              Shame it weren’t 8pm kick off, maybe then Ings would have started 🙁

              Brighton vs Palace was more exciting last night

                Pitch is wrecking the game

            • BeWater
                4 months, 3 hours ago

                The way Leeds like to constantly play out from the back combined with this ice rink of a pitch and Southampton's high press is a recipe for disaster.

                Oof. No Ings was a bullet dodged. I think some did Antonio to Ings for a hit. Stroke of luck for me as cup opponent has him.

                Bamford can't stop thinking about the impending FPL ban for Premier League players. All his motivation has gone.

                Lads goals are guaranteed in the second half of this game. Southampton are terrible in second halves and Leeds are the fittest team in the league. As long as they brought their ice skates they should do some damage.
