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.

        Romeu should get 6 points just from that tackle alone. Masterclass with Raphinca (C) here

    • BeWater
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Going to be one of those days. 7 points from 4 players probably.

        Thank god it was not a penalty. That was the worst cheating attempt I have ever seen. When do they start giving bans or at least ycs from these?

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          When the FA are ready to label Kane & Rashford cheats.

          Not even close to worst ever but yes clearly a dive. Should be a yellow surely.

          Until that sort of thing is given a red card, the game is in trouble.

        Even if Bamford got a goal and 3bps he would still be behind Bruno this week

      • Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Give him a yellow for diving

      • MoSalad
        • 7 Years

        Why doesn’t he just shoot early there, joke!

      • BDA Shadow
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Could not have been more perfect... if he scored. Instead injured, lovely.

        1. BDA Shadow
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          At least he can continue.

          2 months, 23 days ago

          1. BDA Shadow
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Back after a short treatment.

      • tbos83
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Tackle of the season

        • TomSaints
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Tackle of the season that. Love to see it

          1. lespaul

            Tackling is an art

            1. Lukakuna
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Actually it's a sport

        • Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Probably cost me about 14 points that tackle

          1. Mr. O'Connell
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Or maybe 10. Dunno what happened to my maths there.

            1. BDA Shadow
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Dallas + Raphinha (c) is 13 minimum, more with likely bonus.

        • Motong-Moting
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          There should be points for such challenges.

          1. BDA Shadow
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Definitely. Goalkeeping could be boosted that way too but then everything gets a little more complicated.

        • gooberman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          awful from Raphina. So much time.

          1. BDA Shadow
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Took it way too far to his left.

        • EWH2020
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Wow Dallas to Raphinha. 10+ points. Didn't want them anyway

          1. Jimmy Boy
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Thought it was Klich?

        • LE CHARO
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Obviously Raphinha (C) misses that golden opportunity. Sick of that game

        • ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Raphina is the definition of nearly man

          • hueycho

          • Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            This should be Raphinha G Dallas A

            Bad decision from Raphinha ruins this
