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.

    Rudiger + Davis —> Mitchell + Adams wasn’t a total flop then!

    What kind of wizardry does Foster need to do to get a BP? He’s currently sat 4th place

    1. More Cowbell

      Forster* obv

      Another save point?

    3. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Oh forgot the penalty save counts as one of his 3 saves for a extra point.

    4. Super Saints

      Lol Mendy got 3 immediately for catching that aguero chip

      1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

        This is where the logic and integrity of bonus points needs to be questioned

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          They just need to get rid of them, if your player has done well you've already got more points

  3. TheDragon

    Vestergard and Dawson have really been battling it out since GW28 to see who can score the least FPL points whilst starting every game

    Was it not an Armstrong assist?!
    🙁

      Strange it's not on yet, I have him.

      1. Super Saints

    2. dadoune30
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I think Vestergaard had a touch before Adams scored

  5. Lindelol
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Come on Zaha do something - he is my only differential remaining 🙁

  6. Super Saints
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Come on now, my player's today...

    Henderson 0
    Shaw 0
    Bruno 1
    Castagne 2
    Vardy 2
    Iheanacho 2
    Ward 0

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Oooo Ward has 1 again

  7. PP6
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Zaha doing anything at all?

    1. Utopsis
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Contemplating the myriad of clubs uninterested in him

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Can't see many clubs going for him

        1. Utopsis
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Hence uninterested 🙂

          1. Super Saints
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Ha oh yes

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 11 Years

      falling to the ground and complaining

    3. demob
      • 4 Years

      Complaining as usual

    4. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Great talent, flawed character.

  8. JJO
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Perreira Vestegard and Reguilon
    Worst WC trio in 10 years playing

    1. zotter
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Pereira Leicester I assume?

      1. JJO
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Yeah

        1. zotter
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Surprising yes... he might have to find a new position next year with Justin back. Or a new club

          1. JJO
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Yeah great player,but he suffered too much with that injury

            1. zotter
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Wouldn’t write him off. But castagne is so good too. So is Justin

  9. jdp219
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Which def for gw36 (-4)?

    1) Dallas
    2) Digne

    1. zotter
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      2

  10. Fudgy

    Grow up Zaha you pathetic idiot you've cost me my ML you clown

    1. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Only if you picked him. No worries

  11. how now brown cow
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Come on Joel Ward. 2 goals in 5 years would look so much better than 1 on your wiki page.

    1. Kryptonite666
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      lol

  12. Van der Faart
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Come on JWP. Give me something. Anything

  13. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    We should never have trusted that troll Zaha

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      It is his fault he doesn't have two assists. Mili is not to blame.

  14. Kryptonite666
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Chasing 20 points.

    Martinez (Areola)
    Dunk Cresswell Reguilion (Shaw) (Rudiger)
    Lingard Sterling Salah Son Jota
    Bamford Vardy Iheanacho

    Dunk is red carded so needs to go. Vardy also has to go.

    Would you take a -8 for Sterling to Mahrez/ Bale ?

    -8 for Dunk/ Vardy / Sterling to Dallas/ DCL and Bale?

    1. BUZZBOMB
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Id take a -8 under those conditions. Dallas, Digne, cheap Liv def, Raph, Dcl.

  15. ZAMUNDA

    Maddison has been the most useless transfer I've made this season. When I should have gotten Greenwood instead. Welcome back Raphinha to my team.

    1. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Get Greenwood

      1. ZAMUNDA
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Not playing next week, so I got Raphinha for now. I may swap Lingard for Greenwood later

      2. Revival
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        He blanks in GW36 and is not 100% certain to start GW38 ahead of EL final

        1. ZAMUNDA
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          That

  16. aborg
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Zaha finally himself from the past 15 mins

    1. HonestBlatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Won't score and was one of the biggest TGW traps I felt

      1. aborg
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Who would have you gottten instead?

  17. Wally711
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Gonna need everyone to pause everything they are doing and remember the amazing season we had.
    MANCHESTER CITY PREM CHAMPIONS AGAIN!!!!!!! starting to sound like a broken record, am I right man u, liverpool and chelsea fans.
    Have a good one guys (city fans) and party on, my party time is pizza, chicken wings and some chips. Then maybe go running tmr morning lol.

  18. ZAMUNDA

    2 months, 14 days ago

    So after this penalty save, can Forster start next game as well? Need him to complete 11 starting players.

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Think Hassenhutl all but confirmed McCarthy gets next 2

      1. ZAMUNDA
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Cheers mate

  19. TomSaints
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Come on Fraser. One or two saves might get you 2bps

  20. Voodoo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Is there a decent chance that Laporte will keep his place for the Newcastle game?

    Looks like I’m taking hits if he’s out

  21. BOATIES FC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Iheanacho to Antonio or Bamford - 4?

    1. The Mighty Hippo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      yes

    2. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Antonio for me - more explosive

      1. Dirty_Harry
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Would you go Bamford over Antonio if you had Lingard still?

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Yes, I have Lingard already. Just Bamford has been quiet for weeks until this GW, cant see him hauling even if Raphina is back.

        2. BOATIES FC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Its a tough choice

  22. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Wow Zaha turns 29 this year.

    Getting too late for him to go to a bigger club or what?

    1. Keeptrying
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      too late indeed. Also not good enough.

    2. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      He was already at Man Utd 😀

  23. Cometh The Aouar...

    Bloody hell Prowsy - two assist the assisters!

  24. Revival
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Ings and Adams combo for the goal

  25. DycheDycheBaby
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Absolutely lethal from Ings again

  26. Duke Silver ☑
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Such a quality finisher.

  27. ZAMUNDA
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Come on Adams my differential!

  28. Dirty_Harry
    • 12 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Spewing the Zaha punt didn't pay off. Would have been great for mini leagues as a sole owner.

    Can only hope for more than a point in GW36

  29. Fudgy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Zaha isn't even good enough for the prem for me.

  30. Utopsis
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Ings throwing a spanner in the works

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I'm fairness it's Palace and Palace's defence is trash.

      1. Utopsis
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Fulham and Leeds next...
