Forster completes pair of starts for Southampton as Ings returns from injury

Fraser Forster (£4.0m) completes a pair of Triple Gameweek 35 starts by featuring against Crystal Palace.

The Southampton goalkeeper played Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Liverpool and, in starting tonight, earns back-to-back appearances for the first time since Gameweek 31.

Saints manager Ralph Hasenhüttl also welcomes Danny Ings (£8.4m) back from injury against the Eagles, the former Liverpool man paired with Che Adams (£5.7m) up-front.

Takumi Minamino (£6.0m) is also back in the team after missing the game against his parent club Liverpool.

With Ryan Bertrand (£5.0m) still sidelined, Jack Stephens (£4.6m) is at left-back, joined in the back-four by Jannik Vestergaard (£4.7m), Jan Bednarek (£4.7m) and Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.7m).

Carrying 11.8% ownership this evening, central midfielder James Ward-Prowse (£5.9m) is Southampton’s main Fantasy focus. Just four midfielders have offered more points per million spent than him this season.

Meanwhile, there are very few changes for Crystal Palace as they travel to the south coast to complete their Triple Gameweek 35 schedule.

Gary Cahill (£4.5m) drops to the bench to be replaced by Scott Dann (£4.2m) while Jordan Ayew (£5.6m) replaces Andros Townsend (£5.5m) on the right-hand side of midfield.

After a string of outings on the left-hand side of a front-three, it looks as if Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m) could be up-front with Christian Benteke (£5.5m) at St. Mary’s.

Triple Gameweek 35 Line-ups

Southampton XI: Forster; J Stephens, Vestergaard, Bednarek, Walker-Peters; Minamino, Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Redmond; Ings, Adams.

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita; Mitchell, Dann, Kouyaté, J Ward; Eze, Riedewald Milivojevic, Ayew; Zaha, Benteke.

          With D can also add Shaw to Digne for a -8. Won’t have 11 so Digne could cover 2 of that by just playing

      So goddamn typical of this season... Of course Mili misses the one penalty after I bring in Zaha.

      1. doher.ty
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Zaha always disappoints.

          1. BDA Shadow

            I've had him once or twice before and never really loved him as an option. Always massively disappointed and sell after a few weeks.

            1. doher.ty
                2 months, 18 days ago

                His upside also isn't that high. He rarely scores more then a goal when he does score and has a temper. I'm always worried about those yellow cards.

                  He's red listed forever for me I think.

              Surely you're not talking about keepers staying on their line.

                    2 months, 18 days ago

                    The fact that he started for 3.8 should be enough

                I can’t explain how many game weeks I’ve owned Zaha over the years without nil returns. Thank god this time it’s only in FH.

                    Zaha isn't even an option in this game. CPL could be facing me and my mates after a night out at the bars and I still wouldn't bring Zaha in.

                  Any decent defender punts for 36?

                  If you’re chasing and rival has TAA, would you go Robertson?

                  1. doher.ty
                      2 months, 18 days ago

                      No - I'd probably find another differential

                    Would have been better if Zaha missed it
