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.

    Bruno + Nacho > Son + DCL (-4)?

      Yeah, think I'm doing this.

      I think that it will not be an easy game for Tottenham.Low score imo.

      That’s my likely move although tempted with Mahrez

    4. Super Saints

      Bruno + Vardy > Son + Kane(-4) for me, Vardy has cost me big time!

      Looks good

    Bruno Jota > Salah Raphinha (-4), Yes or No?

    1. zotter

      Anyone else to sell except Jota?

      1. Magic Zico

        Greenwood

        1. zotter
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Lingard?

            Not enough funds generated for Salah

              Bruno to Mane instead?

                Good shout and I like it tbh

    2. wulfrunian

      no

        2 months, 18 days ago

        What about Azpi > Lowton instead and play Jota?

        1. wulfrunian
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          I don't think that Burnley will keep a cs vs Leeds.I prefer Ayling.

      2. wulfrunian
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        It seems i am the only one who doesn't like that move.I expect Jota to smash it.

    3. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Yeah I think so

    4. Isco Disco
      • 3 Years

      Yes

    Haven't had such a good GW for ages. This is probably my best GW despite taking a 12 pt hit.
    Benteke and Forster points today have moved me on top of my mini leagues. Was chasing 25 pts before this GW but saving the BB for this week has done me wonders. Jumped from 146k to 86k OR. Race for top 10k is well alive.
    Can't believe the Tekkers punt actually worked out. We move!

      Look at Benteke can do fellas! 😆 Congrats!

        Lol...IKR!

      I played BB too, also with Mendy and Forster. On 110 so far. Have made up a 46 point lead to overtake ML leader. Happy days.

      Congrats on the awesome week

      Top 10k is basically impossible though - you are 80 odd points away

        If my Salah(C) scores a brace this Thursday then it's very much possible

    Kouyate's face when he saw Adams' finish 😆

    Jota has been a bit of a flop these last few weeks, but if he starts on the bench vs. United, primed for a return against a now relegation-confirmed West Brom... I don't want to see anyone moaning about it 😆
