Dugout Discussion – West Ham vs Brighton

A third Friday night kick-off of the season brings us to the London Stadium and a Gameweek 9 opener between West Ham and Brighton.

Sadly, the Fantasy interest in this fixture is somewhat limited.

The Hammers defence has kept three clean sheets in their last five Gameweeks, but that’s not been enough to keep left-back Aaron Cresswell in the starting XI.

Arthur Masuaku has been pushing for inclusion in recent Gameweeks, with impressive cameos from the bench that have brought two assists. He gets the nod tonight, with Cresswell dropping to the bench.

Elsewhere, Chicharito’s start always looked guaranteed once he was declared fit with Andy Carroll suspended. The Mexican – who is still owned by 15.7% – looks to be the lone striker in a 4-2-3-1, with an attacking trio of Michail Antonio, Manuel Lanzini and Marko Arnautovic patrolling behind.

Meanwhile Brighton – who make their second appearance on a Friday night – boast the 14.7% owned Pascal Gross.

He gained an assist at Bournemouth on his last Friday outing and has remained integral for the Seagulls, earning another assist in Sunday’s draw with Everton. He’s been involved in 83% of Brighton’s goals when on the pitch.

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

    Fearing a lack of Liverpool, will I be ok without? Thoughts on rectifying if not?

    Elliot | Krul
    Alonso | Bavies | Jones | Naughton | Kiko
    Silva | Sterling | Richarlison | Choupo-Moting | Carroll
    Kane | Morata | Jesus

      Silva to Salah and Davies to Daniels ( or Mee/Duffy if cannot afford )

          Surely can't be ditching city attackers at the moment?

              Think you have enough insulation there with the other two, WBA away may be tighter than usual. Huddersfield are whipping boys atm so I wouldn't want to be Pool-less for that.

          Anyone have the owenership changes for Salah Kane & Lukaku. Thinkin might as well keep now if people have made them into differentials

              Mixed emotions as a Sterling, Aguero and Jesus owner today. Don't know what to think/expect.

                      I'm sure 2 of them will start. Most predicted lineups have jesus or sane missing. No one knows though. I only have sterling. I can handle a kun start if it means Jesus plays wide and less effective

                          Yes will be nice if Jesus starts instead of Sane

                      Wow the price changes last night. Insanity. Sending shock waves through the entire game.

                      Somehow didn’t lose any sell value.

                        Anyone got a list of price changes last night?

                        Was expecting a rise in TV...still at the same value though 🙁

                            Which is better?

                            A) Firmino + Hazard + Alonso
                            B) Jesus + Salah + Alonso
                            C) Jesus + Coutinho + Alonso
                            D) Jesus + Hazard + Holebas + 4 points

                            D seems better due to the points, however i want a Liverpool player vs Huddersfield. Thoughts?
