Arnautovic injury opens door for more striker changes

An injury to Marko Arnautovic may cause further widespread changes among Fantasy Premier League squads.

His owners will be sweating on a hamstring problem in the coming days and will have their eyes on alternatives already.

Meanwhile, there was disappointment for Felipe Anderson owners as a host of differential options helped West Ham to their latest win.

West Ham United 3-1 Cardiff City

Goals: Lucas Perez x2 (£6.2m), Michail Antonio (£6.8m) | Josh Murphy

Assists: Robert Snodgrass x2 (£5.3m), Arthur Masuaku (£4.3m) | Sean Morrison (£4.7m)

Marko Arnautovic (£7.2m) could be the next player to leave the Fantasy Premier League template after he was taken off injured in West Ham’s win over Cardiff. The Austrian forward went down clutching his hamstring and it seems unlikely he will feature too much over the Christmas period. The return to fitness of Andy Carroll (£5.4m) as well as the form of Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez (£6.2m) and Lucas Perez (£6.2m) mean that Manuel Pellegrini has plenty of options to replace him. If he is set for some time on the sidelines, the popularity of Callum Wilson (£6.9m) and Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.6m) should rise accordingly.

“It is a hamstring injury, we will see tomorrow.” – Manuel Pellegrini

Also stepping up as a potential alternative option at West Ham was Robert Snodgrass (£5.3m) who recorded two assists in the win. Since returning from suspension in Gameweek 14 he has started two matches in a row while Grady Diangana (£4.5m) has featured for just 14 minutes. The Scottish international was also subbed after 75 minutes at the London Stadium suggesting that Manuel Pellegrini is keen to use him again in Gameweek 16. Snodgrass’ two assists were a delivery on the creative promise he’s shown this season. In the last four Gameweeks, he had created more chances than Felipe Anderson (£7.1m), who came out of the 3-1 win with just two points.

The only reason that Lukasz Fabianski (£4.5m) did not get his first home clean since Gameweek 6 was because of a scrappy late Cardiff City goal. The Bluebirds had not particularly threatened in the match and the Hammers were certainly on course for a well-deserved shut-out. In contentious circumstances, Josh Murphy (£4.8m) bundled the ball over the line deep into stoppage time with Fabianski obstructed from being able to make a save. However, his owners will still be content with his first-half penalty save and eight-point haul.

Fabian Balbuena (£4.4m) missed out on the match with his recent injury problems. He was considered a doubt for the encounter but was fit enough for the bench, although he did not come on.

Michail Antonio (£6.8m) got his first goal of the season, a header from one of Snodgrass’ corners. It was an impressive display from him but Fantasy managers looking at West Ham options should probably exercise caution. The midfielder was deployed at right-back, not for the first time in his Hammers’ career, allowing first-choice Pablo Zabaleta (£4.3m) could have a rest. With Ryan Fredericks (£4.6m) still out injured, Antonio may well be the preferred alternative to Zabaleta at right-back during this busy period where rotation will be rife.

Meanwhile, Jack Wilshere (£4.8m) was entirely absent from the matchday squad having sustained a minor pain in his ankle.

“Jack (Wilshere) has a small pain in his ankle, not the one he injured before. If he is not 100 per cent then I was not going to select him.” – Manuel Pellegrini

Joe Ralls (£4.7m) announced himself as Cardiff City’s penalty taker but his time in that position may be short-lived after seeing his poor effort saved.

It was a poor night for Cardiff and their Fantasy options. A number of them are still playing out-of-position, so to speak with Callum Paterson (£5.3m) the centre-forward once again and Victor Camarasa (£4.6m) deployed on the right flank of the attack.

Murphy has now featured only as a substitute in two of his last three matches while, as we already mentioned, the circumstances of his headed goal were fortuitous at best.

West Ham XI (4-4-2): Fabianski; Masuaku, Ogbonna, Diop, Antonio; F Anderson, Rice, Noble, Snodgrass (Diangana 75′); Arnautovic (L Perez 40′), Chicharito (Carroll 64′).

Cardiff XI (4-1-4-1): Etheridge; Bennett, Bamba, Morrison, Ecuele Manga; Gunnarsson; Hoilett (Murphy 64′), Arter, Ralls (Mendez-Laing 64′), Camarasa; Paterson (Harris 73′).

    If i offered you 7 points for Kane right now, would you take it?

        Yep

        1. Eat my goal!
            6 months, 15 days ago

            I’d also take a hazard 10 and auba 10 despite knowing others have them as captains and Kane is my captain

        2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 15 days ago

          Definitely would - I'd take 6

          Nah I'd still take the gamble.

          9 and you have a deal.

          as a non owner

          Personally no, I want more from my most expensive player, playing at home against one of the worst teams in the league who will have Kelvin Davis in the dugout.

          1. Auboomerang
            • 1 Year
            6 months, 15 days ago

            Surprised people are happy with 6/7 points from a 12m player.

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • 9 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              6/7 points a week is a good captaincy target, its nice to get more, but its bad to get less

            2. Eat my goal!
                6 months, 15 days ago

                7 points now or gamble for what could be a cameo or injury or blank or 5 pointer or sure double digits... I’d rather not risk the 14 pointers from a captain

          2. MTPockets
            • 9 Years
            6 months, 15 days ago

            no

          3. Ghost Gooner
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 15 days ago

            No. 10pts is the minimum

          4. Jules Rimet
              6 months, 15 days ago

              No because he will score two goals and get three bonus points which gets me 13 points.

              No minimum return I want is a brace from Kane with max bonus so 14 I think

              6 months, 15 days ago

              As a non-owner, I would not accept. I want him to play and get his 2 pts.

              Hell no. That is very easy to match by a hazard assist or Salah goal. I want him to completely trump opposition. 12 minimum.

          5. Tshelby
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 15 days ago

            What to do with this lot?

            1.2 ITB
            1FT

            Fab, Hamer
            Alonso, Robbo, Doherty, Bennett*, AWB
            Salah, Son, Sane, Richarlison, Billing*
            Ings*, Auba, Arnie*

            Seems like my bench is totally useless

            1. Kanchelskis
              • 1 Year
              6 months, 15 days ago

              Arnie to Mitro. Bennett could be back in tonight. New manager could be good for Ings though not sure when he is back.

              1. Tshelby
                • 4 Years
                6 months, 15 days ago

                He will have a late test today for the game so I hope that Ings will be back in the weekend. Don't really know if I want Mitro more looking at Wilson tbh

                1. Kanchelskis
                  • 1 Year
                  6 months, 15 days ago

                  You're right. How did I forget Wilson?

            2. Ghost Gooner
              • 5 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              Arnie has to go 1st with Ings next if he isn't ready by mid dec

            3. Gunner Boy
              • 4 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              Monitor Bennett, I heard around here that he had a knock.

              Arnie > wilson.
              Ings >Mitrovic

          6. KingOllie
            • 3 Years

            Arnie -> Laca is a no brainer right? 1FT

            1. dmkp
              • 3 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              Very much so

              1. KingOllie
                • 3 Years
                6 months, 15 days ago

                Good thing about Laca is that hes not played for last few due to injury, shouldnt need much rest next week or so 🙂

            2. TaiwanHC
              • 3 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              No

            3. Gunner Boy
              • 4 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              Yes

            4. Danno - Emre Canada
              • 4 Years

              That’s what I’ll no doubt do

          7. Goonsquad245
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 15 days ago

            With Mitro on 4 YC and united away next, is it worth waiting and saving a FT this week (playing Laporte) and possibly getting mitro next week?

            1. L'Aeroplanino
              • 2 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              of course

              1. Goonsquad245
                • 3 Years
                6 months, 15 days ago

                Thanks - decision could be made for us if he gets booked tonight!

          8. Mcgugan
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 15 days ago

            Any idea if Holding will keep starting?

            I can do Luiz > Holding
            Arnie > Auba next week?

            1. dunas_dog
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              Does Koscielny possibly being available for Huddersfield game impact?

            2. avfc82
              • 9 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              I'm not convinced. Sokratis, Mustafi and now Koscielny and Mavropanos fighting for places. It helps when they play 3 at the back, but I'm not sure they will long term.

            3. seanie3
              • 8 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              No, kos close to comeback

            4. danishdynamite
              • 8 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              Koscielny soon back and there's always the chance that Monreal will play at left CB (if they continue with three at the back)

            5. GoonSquad
              • 8 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              Missing Auba for his fixture after ManU seems insane, I'd take a hit and C Auba.

          9. Mcgugan
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 15 days ago

            Also any views on Laca? If he starts, surely he can get close to Auba for less money?

            1. L'Aeroplanino
              • 2 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              yes, emery switched to 3-4-1-2/3-4-2-1 recently and they can play together in the middle

            2. KingOllie
              • 3 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              Arsenal fan here, Laca is much better value. They will get equal minutes over the xmas period.

              Laca is still first choice #9. And Emery is playing 3-5-2 / 3-4-3 now so they will both play the majority

              1. avfc82
                • 9 Years
                6 months, 15 days ago

                Good post - can you see Emery sticking with 3 at the back long term? It's only the last couple of PL matches he's used the system right?

                1. KingOllie
                  • 3 Years
                  6 months, 15 days ago

                  Hes a very tactical manager so will only play that system when it suits, so i do expect it to change around.

                  But it fits our players right now due to Kolasinac and Bellerin being better wingbacks than fullbacks and providing that width as we have no natural wingers in the team. Which allows us to play Auba/Laca/Ozil/Rambo in a more central position

                  1. avfc82
                    • 9 Years
                    6 months, 15 days ago

                • 1 Year
                6 months, 15 days ago

                I can't see them both playing together too often, it's too risky as they are the only 2 strikers we have

                1. KingOllie
                  • 3 Years
                  6 months, 15 days ago

                  That makes no sense. The wingbacks allow us to play both of them

            3. MTPockets
              • 9 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              I think so yep

            4. Karan14
              • 3 Years
              6 months, 15 days ago

              If they both start today I will be convinced that they both are equally nailed.

              Don’t think dropping Laca for Iwobi/Mkhi add anything to the Arsenal attack.

              They are much better off with Auba-Laca playing upfron. They seem to have good chemistry as well on & off the pitch.

                Which combo would you prefer for THIS gw only?

                1) Sane + Martial + Auba (c)
                2) Martial + Kane + Auba (c) (-4)
                3) Sane + Kane + Auba (c) (-4)

                A: Fabianski + Alonso
                B: Patricio + Diop with Alonso on the bench

                Leaning towards

                  *am leaning towards 2A

                  1 unless pretty sure Sane won't play
                  Not sure - I always start Alonso but not so logical as advice this gw. However Wolves aren't keeping cs either.

                  £1.9 over budget with this team....where would you cut down?

                  Hamer - Patrício
                  Wan-Bissaka - Alonso - Laporte - Bennett - TAA
                  Højbjerg - F.Anderson - Sterling - Hazard - Fraser
                  Kane - Auba - Wilson

                    Would have to be Alonso unfortunately

                      Or Kane but I imagine you really don’t want that. ACTUALLY just do sterling > Sane ???

                    Hazard to Sané and Hojbjerg to Gunnarsson?

                    Shaving a bit here and there still doesn't make it so Hazard downgrade I guess.

                      Stones+Ballerin to Digne+Doherty/Holding and upgrade Brooks to Fraser or d.silva to Sane?

                        Yes something along those lines. You need a bit more fire power.

                  Taking the plunge and ditching Salah to fund Arnie > Auba (-4)

                  Best replacement for 8.8?

                  a) Bilva
                  b) Dilva
                  c) Ozil
                  d) take a -8 and make it Sane

                    Wondering if maybe go for Laca over Auba now though, gets me Sane easy and leave a bit of change over...

                    Kane Auba Wilson

                    Agree, I have gone for Sterling over Hazard

                  What's the mood like in the community today. I'm happy enough with last night with Sane and Fabianksi getting me 16 pts. Kane (c) and the rest to come so hopefully an exciting evening ahead.

                  Arnie's duckegg and injury is a blow though. Looks like my first -4 hit of the season is coming this weekend as one of Laca/Aubam has to come in with those fixtures and the other 7m FW;s fixtures sucking b*lls

                    6 months, 15 days ago

                    Yep a hit that will make many points over those sticking to the price point

                      6 months, 15 days ago

                      I think so too. I'm normally part of the anti hit brigade as it tends to go against me but in this case, Arnies injury is forcing my hand and Arsenal fixtures and form is too good to pass up.

                      17 here with AWB. Got Salah (c) still to come! Kinda excited to see how my move is going to work out today. I did haz, kun and Martial to Son, Sane and Auba

                        • 4 Years
                        6 months, 15 days ago

                        I went Aguero and Hazard to Sane and Kane(C) Sunday so so far so good from a price and points perspective. Hoping Troll Hazard doesn't come back to bite me after holding him for the past 6 GWs

                      6 months, 15 days ago

                      I also have Sane and Fab which I’m happy enough with although Cardiff’s late goal was a real kick in the nuts.

                      I brought in Felipe, and while I’m still happy to have him moving forward it was a shame he didn’t get any returns from 6 goals.

                      Hoping Auba, Salah and Kane(c) do the business tonight.

                        Kane (C) i'm excited about but have gotten burned by him last season. Aubam is who i'm gonna get in this GW. Just a shame i've missed out on the 3 price rises in 3 days. I'll have to downgrade Salah to fund Arnie to Aubam so money isnt the issue but still

                    6 months, 15 days ago

                    Mitro is a troll just cause he is in the same price bracket as Arnie does not make him an option or the fact that he has nice fixtures.
                    If you want to get him be prepared for 6-10 blanks followed by a brace, repeat. But jump on board hey 🙂

                      • 2 Years
                      6 months, 15 days ago

                      Not entirely true that. He's a proven young goalscorer. I don't own him but I wouldn't be surprised to see him start scoring more regular

                    2. Kanchelskis
                      • 1 Year

                      I think if Ranieri gets them up and running then he could be great, if they do well so will he. His poor run recently coincided with Fulham's.

                      6 months, 15 days ago

                      He’s a good option imo. Think Fulham just started conceding too much and lost their way with the previous manager.

                      He was shooting as much as Aguero first few weeks and was very good value for money.

                      I think investors are hoping Fulham become a little more consistent under Ranieri, and he clearly wants to build the attack around him. I think he's a good shout.

                      Agreed, i'm swinging toward Jimenez instead.

                      Looks like I am out voted. Last season and this one already. He is on my never again list. Fair point on Ranieri.
                      I have been wrong before and if wrong on this will be the first to post here to say so. 🙂

                    What a disaster of a week thus far. Everything looked nice and dandy before this week, as if I had WCarded especially for this week alone.

                    Laporte and Arnautovic blanks later I really wish for a upturn today with Kane as my cap.

                    Is Felipe Anderson worth 2m more than Snodgrass?

                    Snodgrass usually takes majority of the corners/fks when on the pitch.
                    He’s also creating more chances than Anderson.
                    Anderson has better goal threat compared to Snoddy but when you compare him to Siggy/Rich he’s way behind.

                      Just based on how they played last night, Snoddy was way better.

                        but as u mentioned snodgrass is a bit deep and only setpieces help him.Kinda poor man's fraser .Prefer goal threat over him

                      When Anderson is involved expect the Bonus points, he can’t return every week, but 23 in his last 4 isn’t bad 9 2 10 2

                      Reckon Alli, less rotation if fully healthy. Both depend on goals vs. assists.

                          or I get laca + anderson for hazard + arnie?

                        Agree that Mitro has the better midterm fixtures. He'll likely be my Arnie replacement.

                        I’m thinking I could get both

                          • 6 Years
                          6 months, 15 days ago

                          Choose one then Auba though I rwckon

                      2. Federico
                        • 6 Years
                        6 months, 15 days ago

                        Auba most tempting. Depends on how you spend the savings from Laca.

                    • Ole Trafford
                      • 6 Years
                      6 months, 15 days ago

                      Hazard and Arnie to Anderson and laca for free
                      Or
                      Salah, Arnie and Wilson to Auba, Laca and Anderson -4

                        • 1 Year
                        6 months, 15 days ago

                        First one.

                      2. Wingate
                        • 8 Years
                        6 months, 15 days ago

                        Looking at similar. Hazard poor form, average fixtures, and likelihood of rest over Xmas schedule makes it possibly a good idea. Worried Auba/Laca will also rotate though.

                    • Federico
                      • 6 Years
                      6 months, 15 days ago

                      Arnie out - Arsenal in.

                      Considering Laca instead of Auba, to have some flexibility in coming weeks. With Auba, it looks like I might want to let Alonso go, to keep up with midfield targets (Sanè, Alli etc.).

                      Simply put:
                      A) Trippier + Auba
                      B) Alonso + Laca

                      1. Kanchelskis
                        • 1 Year
                        6 months, 15 days ago

                        A or Trip and Laca and use rest somewhere else.

                        1. Federico
                          • 6 Years
                          6 months, 15 days ago

                          So in other words, Alonso -> Trip is a good thing? 🙂

                      • 8 Years
                      6 months, 15 days ago

                      With upcoming fixtures plus current form does this make sense:

                      Hazard (MCI) + Arnie (Injured) to Anderson (CRY) + Auba (HUD) -4?

                      Or Arnie to Wilson. Thx
