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've been telling everyone it's gonna be 4-4 for days

    Roberts diving for a free kick . . must be catching.

    At what stage does "street-smart" become outright cheating? Unbelievable that lad was not booked for that blatant cheat.

      Blame the rules

      To be fair Llorente did nothing to avoid it . . .went down expecting contact.

        Pretty difficult to ask a defender to back off 3 yards so the attacker can't throw out his leg to trip himself...

      Simulation , definitely should be booked for being a cheat

      Teams should be fined for playing boring football. There's something like that in cricket when their run rate is too low

            Captaining him has been nothing but pain

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 1 day ago

              At least your captain has started

            2. Im New Here
                4 months, 1 day ago

                The 4 points last game wasn't too bad. Just don't think of all the spurned chances 🙂

            He was going for a pen I think

            No way you go that far inside and run into trouble

            1. Im New Here
                4 months, 1 day ago

                Yeah I felt he was looking for pen
