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.

    1. HonestBlatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      7 months, 5 days ago

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

  8. BeWater

    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
      • 5 Years

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

    2. BDA Shadow
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

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

    3. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      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

  14. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Give him a yellow for diving

  15. MoSalad
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

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

    1. Knock Down Your Aerial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

  17. No Professionals
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    Awful from raphinha, take the shot on you clown

  18. BDA Shadow
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

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

    1. BDA Shadow
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      At least he can continue.

    2. Knock Down Your Aerial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Is he off the pitch?

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 5 days ago

        Back after a short treatment.

  19. tbos83

    Tackle of the season

  20. TomSaints
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    Tackle of the season that. Love to see it

    1. lespaul
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Tackling is an art

      1. Lukakuna
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 5 days ago

        Actually it's a sport

  21. Mr. O'Connell
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    Probably cost me about 14 points that tackle

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

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

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 5 days ago

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

  22. Motong-Moting
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    There should be points for such challenges.

    1. BDA Shadow
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

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

  23. gooberman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    awful from Raphina. So much time.

    1. BDA Shadow
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Took it way too far to his left.

  24. EWH2020
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

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

    1. Jimmy Boy
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Thought it was Klich?

  25. LE CHARO
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

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

  26. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    Raphina is the definition of nearly man

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Stole my comment, how dare you.

  27. REDMOND IN SANDALS
    7 months, 5 days ago

  28. hueycho
    • 2 Years

  30. Salan

    • 11 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    This should be Raphinha G Dallas A

    Bad decision from Raphinha ruins this
