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.

        Commentators trying to find out as we speak whether to say it was a dive or not

  2. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 25 days ago

    No penalty

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 25 days ago

      No YC

  3. amitmishr
    • 6 Years

    This would have been a penalty and goal for ings, my captain

    1. amitmishr
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 25 days ago

      Thankgod, no penalty atleast. Have Dallas as well. Eh. Today it is gonna end in a bittersweet way

  4. Steve The Spud

    Why don’t the commentators just say that it’s a dive

  5. jason_ni

    Everything that's wrong with the game.. you have young players coming through, and this is how they are playing, game is doomed.

    1. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 25 days ago

      And not even booked for it. That just reinforces it.

  6. Weak Become Heros

    Justice.

  7. sminkypinky
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 25 days ago

    Correct. Well done ref.

  8. BeWater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 25 days ago

    Well done Marriner but he should be booked for that.

  9. ivantys
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 25 days ago

    No YC for dive?

  10. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 25 days ago

    Book him. Disgraceful dive

  11. Captain Vantastic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 25 days ago

    Clear dive and no yellow

  12. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 25 days ago

    Already sold Ings for DCL. What a waste of space.

  13. No Professionals
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 25 days ago

    The best view was from the other angle where it was obviously no pen, why didn’t they show that one?

    Got to the right decision though.

  14. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Where’s the card for deceiving the ref?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 25 days ago

      I know, want him sent off so Ings will come on

  15. Danno - Emre Canada
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 25 days ago

    Boom him!

    1. Monklane
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 25 days ago

      Yes! Boom him!

  16. Mr. O'Connell

    Might free hit to get 11 single gameweek players next week just to avoid the disappointment tbh

    1. GoonerSteve
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 25 days ago

      lol

  17. mynameisq
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 25 days ago

    Conspiracy for Southampton, how could any ref ever give that as a penalty, must be dishonest and cheating

  18. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 25 days ago

    He’s not booked because VAR can’t issue a YC and the ref, to no one’s surprise, missed it.

    Another rule that needs changing.

    1. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 25 days ago

      How has the ref missed it when he's rewatched it on the monitor several times. I agree VAR can't necessarily do it but the ref HAS to book him for that.

    2. LE CHARO
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 25 days ago

      Ref can actually issue a yellow card in that situation.

  19. GROBARI

    Ings,get f*** out of my team,useless c***. Never buy you ever in my life

    1. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 25 days ago

      Breathe

      1. GROBARI
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 25 days ago

        I am relaxed,this is normal from me

        1. mynameisq
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 25 days ago

          Therapy? 😉

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 25 days ago

      Ralph’s fault

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 25 days ago

      Haha, quality

  20. Clintymints
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 25 days ago

    Good decision was looking for the peno

  21. Oggle22
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 25 days ago

    Thank god for that hurt enough with bringing in Ings and ml rival didn't have him then benched and that pen would have topped it off

  22. REDMOND IN SANDALS
      7 months, 25 days ago

      should be a yellow? welldone VAR

    • hullcityfan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 25 days ago

      I've been robbed of a Meslier pen save.

      1. Hybrid.power
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 25 days ago

        As a fellow Meslier owner, I admire your optimism

    • Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 25 days ago

      Shocked! Finally a good decision from a ref!

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 25 days ago

        Doubt JWP miss those

    • Garth Marenghi
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 25 days ago

      How was that not a card

      1. mynameisq
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 25 days ago

        Refs biased towards Southampton

      2. JONALDINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 25 days ago

        He’s English

    • Kane and Ablett
        7 months, 25 days ago

        Why are none of these divers getting booked? Unnatural fling out of his right leg, blatant cheating yet still no booking

      • Hulk Smash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 25 days ago

        Lmao where are those couple of Southampton fans who were complaining all weekend about players from other teams not being booked for obvious fouls and dives, claiming it was a conspiracy?

        You've got to laugh.

      • Sack The Glazers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 25 days ago

        Mike Dean would have given a red and a pen

      • DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 25 days ago

        That was a penalty IMO.

        1. Garlana
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 25 days ago

          Then you should be a ref

        2. Gudjohnsen
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 25 days ago

          Hahahahhahahahahahah

          You know absolutely nothing about football.

      • Little Red Lacazette
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 25 days ago

        They don't give cards for diving anymore.
