Moyes gets off to winning start as West Ham’s Double Gameweek 24 assets impress

West Ham United 4-0 Bournemouth

  • Goals: Mark Noble (£5.0m) x2, Sebastien Haller (£7.0m), Felipe Anderson (£6.6m)
  • Assists: Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m), Ryan Fredericks (£4.5m), Declan Rice (£4.7m)
  • Bonus: Noble x3, Fredericks x2, Rice x1

David Moyes’ second stint as West Ham United manager got off to the best possible start on New Year’s Day but he could hardly have wished for more obliging opponents than a woefully out-of-sorts Bournemouth side.

Fantasy Premier League managers will be monitoring the Hammers’ players ahead of Double Gameweek 24, although the fact that the Londoners face Leicester City and Liverpool in that round of fixtures will be off-putting to many.

Forthcoming matches against high-flying Sheffield United and a resurgent Everton will also be truer tests of their abilities, with Wednesday’s opponents Bournemouth the division’s worst team based on form over the last ten Gameweeks.

Still, West Ham couldn’t have done any more than what they did on New Year’s Day, recording their biggest league win in over 12 years.

Moyes didn’t have much time to work with his new troops and didn’t look to make any sweeping tactical changes, retaining a 4-2-3-1 set-up with attacking midfield trio Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m), Felipe Anderson (£6.6m) and Pablo Fornals (£6.0m) playing behind central striker Sebastien Haller (£7.0m).

Michail Antonio (£6.9m) reportedly missed out with a minor hamstring injury.

Haller and Anderson produced arguably their best performances in months, with the hitherto out-of-form striker brilliantly volleying in a Ryan Fredericks (£4.5m) cross and the Brazilian rounding off the scoring when delicately controlling a superb Declan Rice pass (£4.7m) and slotting beyond Aaron Ramsdale (£4.7m) midway through the second half.

Mark Noble (£5.0m), who Moyes has repeatedly praised since his re-appointment as head coach, had opened the scoring with a heavily deflected shot before grabbing his second from the penalty spot after being fouled himself.

There could have been further goals, too, with substitute Manuel Lanzini (£6.2m) heading straight at Ramsdale from six yards and Fornals forcing the Bournemouth goalkeeper into a save with an effort from the edge of the box.

Speaking of the attacking options at his disposal, Moyes said:

We have got so many players who have got the ability. Anderson, Haller, Lanzini, Fornals, all technically gifted players so we want to get them all in the team but we have to play football to win and get ourselves out of this position in the Premier League.

Brazilians score goals, Brazilians make the difference, they do something which makes us all excited, I said [to Anderson] you’re not doing that. Give me a Brazilian goal and to be fair, he did.

Even when Lanzini came on, he looked lively, he had two good opportunities. They are people I know I enjoy working with and hopefully, they felt the same.

Lanzini is one of the players who Moyes worked with in his first stint in east London, with another being Arthur Masuaku (£4.2m) – the FPL defender was deployed ‘out of position’, as he effectively was as a gung-ho wing-back in 2017/18, in a seven-minute cameo against the Cherries on Wednesday.

Lukasz Fabianski (£4.9m) will rarely enjoy an easier afternoon, with his only two saves coming from shots from narrow angles, although his clean sheet was very nearly spoiled late on when Dominic Solanke (£5.2m) nodded against the inside of the post.

Angelo Ogbonna (£4.5m) deserves a mention, too, with the recalled defender delivering an impressive display at centre-half.

Reflecting on his impact on the West Ham players, Moyes said:

I tried to make it as simple as I possibly could.

In truth, I don’t know most of them, maybe eight or nine from before, but I tried to go over with them on yesterday morning, tried to use every bit of time to have conversations with them. I have spoken to one or two individuals who I think will make the difference for us.

But, really, we worked on being in a good defensive shape and when we lost possession, we were in a good place.

What I saw recently is the minute the ball changed over, we couldn’t get back into a good enough shape in transition. We have the ability to run fast forward, play off a big centre forward, and we could do with crossing the ball a bit more. Thankfully today, Seb did that.

Bournemouth were, as they have been for large chunks of the last two months, well below-par.

Callum Wilson (£7.4m) hasn’t delivered an FPL attacking return since September and was anonymous, touching the ball on fewer occasions than Ramsdale.

The Cherries’ injury-hit defence were repeatedly carved open and their most-owned player in FPL, Diego Rico (£4.4m), departed at half-time with a minus score having conceded three goals and picked up a yellow card.

Rico was one of a few players namechecked by his manager afterwards as not being fully fit, with Howe saying:

There were players today playing who were not 100 per cent fit either so that’s not to make excuses and to try and shy away from what we’ve delivered, because it hasn’t been good enough. I thought the players gave everything today but we weren’t in the best physical condition to play.”

I think the difference probably from this to previous years is the amount of injuries that we’ve had. The lightness of the squad, I’ve never had a smaller group of players to pick from.

Even some of those players, if you look aren’t 100 per cent fit. Steve Cook, Junior Stanislas, Diego Rico, Simon Francis, Jefferson Lerma are all coming into the game on the back of injuries and haven’t trained. I don’t think we were in the best physical condition today.

Josh King (£6.1m) and Jack Stacey (£4.3m) joined the ever-growing injury list after picking up hamstring strains in Gameweek 20, with Howe saying after full-time on Wednesday:

I think they’re going to be out for about five to six weeks. They’ve got very similar injuries. Both hamstring injuries, both been given the same grade, so a massive, massive blow.

All of which adds up to an appetising fixture for in-form Watford in Gameweek 22, with Bournemouth out of sorts and short of several first-team players.

Members Analysis

Manchester City 2-1 Everton

  • Goals: Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) x2 | Richarlison (£8.0m)
  • Assists: Ilkay Gundogan (£5.2m), Riyad Mahrez (£8.4m) | Theo Walcott (£6.2m)
  • Bonus: Jesus x3, Djibril Sidibe (£5.3m) x2, Gundogan, Fernandinho (£5.2m) x1

The 11-day Premier League hiatus probably comes at a good time for Manchester City and owners of their Fantasy assets.

Energy levels had clearly been sapped over Christmas, with the Citizens not helped by having to play over 75 minutes with ten men against Wolves last Friday.

Having named the same front six players in his starting XI in Gameweeks 19 and 20, Pep Guardiola finally delivered the rotation we had been fearing on New Year’s Day.

Raheem Sterling (£11.8m), Sergio Aguero (£11.7m) and Bernardo Silva (£7.8m) were all dropped to the bench, while Kyle Walker (£5.8m), City’s most-owned defender in FPL and an ever-present in the Premier League in December, also made way at right-back.

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m), he of the lung-busting runs from deep, avoided a benching but looked to be pacing himself after his exertions over the festive period, operating in a more restrained central midfield role – although, as we’ll discuss shortly, that was perhaps as much about Guardiola’s tactical tweak as it was energy preservation.

Sterling came on for an owner-infuriating one-point cameo in stoppage time, to compound the misery for the 23.3% of Fantasy bosses who still retain the winger’s services.

Explaining the rotation and the omission of Ederson (£6.0m) ahead of kick-off, Guardiola said:

Ederson is sick. The other ones… it has been an incredible amount of games. It’s the toughest period – we need fresh legs.

While the personnel changes weren’t too surprising, the change of formation was.

City switched to a 3-4-3 for this match, with wing-backs Joao Cancelo (£5.2m) and Benjamin Mendy (£5.5m) playing either side of centre-halves Rodri (£5.4m), Eric Garcia (£4.5m) and Fernandinho (£5.2m).

De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan (£5.2m) operated as the two holding midfielders, with Riyad Mahrez (£8.4m) and Phil Foden (£5.1m) flanking Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) in attack.

We saw very little of De Bruyne in the Everton box as a result, while his distribution was, for once, a little off: the Belgian’s pass completion rate was the worst of any City player in Gameweek 21.

Perhaps De Bruyne most of all needs a breather, which will surely come on Saturday when City entertain Port Vale in the FA Cup.

Asked about his use of a wing-back system, Guardiola said:

We can do it in the future. We make a really good build-up. The five guys – Eric, ‘Dinho, Rodri, Gundogan and Kevin – they are so good with the ball. Everything that happens that starts from there is good. It is better. Riyad received the ball in better conditions. Phil received it in better conditions. It helps us to play better.

City laboured in the first half against Carlo Ancelotti’s side, with a shanked Mahrez effort and a disallowed Foden goal as close as they came to breaking the deadlock.

Everton’s resistance finally caved early in the second half, with Jesus expertly finishing two well-crafted team goals to help City establish what ought to have been a comfortable lead.

A botched pass from Claudio Bravo (£4.8m) led to Richarlison‘s (£8.0m) goal and a nervy final 20 minutes but, in truth, City looked more likely to increase their advantage than concede an equaliser, with Jesus twice denied by Jordan Pickford (£5.3m) and seeing a shot crash back off the upright.

From an Everton point of view, we are hardly likely to be deterred by an away defeat at the Etihad.

The Toffees’ next five matches are appealing (even if the trips to Watford and West Ham perhaps come at the wrong time considering the potential for a continued new manager bounce at both clubs) and they sit near the top of our Season Ticker as a result.

This was Richarlison’s sixth attacking return in the last ten Gameweeks and his advanced role in the Everton set-up is obviously attractive.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.8m) is flourishing under new management, as well: the budget FPL forward has five goals in six matches since Marco Silva departed and, while quiet for long periods, came close to scoring at the Etihad with a header.

Further back, Djibril Sidibe (£5.3m) is enjoying a new lease of life in the post-Silva era.

Whether deployed as a wing-back in a 3-4-3 or a right-winger when the Toffees move to a 4-4-2, the on-loan defender has two assists, two clean sheets and six bonus points in five starts under Duncan Ferguson and Carlo Ancelotti.

Two of those bonus points arrived on New Year’s Day, despite Sidibe not banking an attacking or defensive return.

While the Toffees were not as fluent as they had been at Newcastle in Gameweek 20, chances did arrive: Seamus Coleman (£5.3m) forcing Bravo into an early save, Yerry Mina (£5.3m) nodding wide from a good position and Moise Kean (£6.4m) spectacularly volleying off-target.

An honest Ancelotti said after full-time:

Honestly, Manchester City played a really good game and we stayed in the game until the end. At the end City deserved to win – they were better than us.

We were too shy in the first half, we had the possession but we were not able to find the solutions.

In the second half, we showed good spirit, now we have to look forward for the next game.

On Bernard (£6.4m), who picked up an injury in the warm-up and had to pull out of the starting XI, Ancelotti added:

He was not able to play. He had a contact with Yerry Mina in the warm-up. I hope he will be ready for the next game.

Manchester City (3-4-3): Bravo; Rodrigo, Fernandinho, Eric Garcia; Joao Cancelo, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Mendy; Mahrez, Jesus, (Sterling 90′) Foden (D Silva 82′). 

Everton XI (3-4-3): Pickford; Coleman (Walcott 59′), Mina, Holgate; Sidibe, Sigurdsson (Kean 66′), Delph, Davies, Digne; Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.

        I think you may be right

        There are three inevitable headlines we will some day awaken to in our lifetime:

        1. Premiership collapses as TV deals disintegrate
        2. Alien life confirmed
        3. FPL closed for good

        Some day FPL as we know it is going to be gone

        This may be that day

      Fpl was always kind to us all. Yes, she was mean sometimes, however, that does not take away her sweet disposition. She was a caring mother & friend. She was a kind Queen that gave some bonus points even when they deserved non.

      She made us all share pure delight mixed with pandemonium for the pleasure of every event

      She will always be remembered for her loyal,kind & humble deeds

    Already got Mane and TAA.
    Which option is best to bring in and complete my trilogy:
    A) Dunk, Salah
    B) Robertson, Son (assuming also that he goes up front with Kane out)

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      B

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      B. Robbo and someone else

    3. NoWayJose

      Interesting. I was heavily leaning towards Salah

    4. Zim0

      Brighton have nice fixtures for clean sheet points. Plus Salah better captain material for GW 24 plus Son against liverpool Watford City in next 4 and spurs are looking way off form and kane is out. Id go Salah Dunk

    Spurs have a bad defence and a weak keeper. No form. Best CDM is injured. Hmm, Salah (c) again maybe.

    1. King Kohli
      • 7 Years

      Not a bad shout at all

      1. Hot Toddy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        It's so tempting. Really confident he scores 1.

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Will return to his 2-3 point performance now.

      1. Hot Toddy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Playing really well now.

    3. Zim0
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      But also Debruyne against Villa?

      1. Zim0
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Im torn

      2. Hot Toddy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Yep great shout. Vardy too.

        1. Bushwhacker
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Rash, vardy, Abraham...

    4. Alonso The Great Midfielder

      kdb better shout

  23. The_Fish

    Perhaps a stupid question, but how is livefpl so much quicker than the official game?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Because it's not official.

      1. The_Fish
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        That doesn’t answer the question

  24. King Kohli
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Best move here?
    A. Alli > Sarr
    B. Alli > Richarlison
    C. Alli + Rashford + Lowton > Mane + DCL + 3.9 (-4)
    D. Alli + Rashford > Sterling + Dcl

    2 Ft. Leaning towards C or D

    Guaita Stek
    TAA Soy Lundy Rico Lowton
    Salah KDB Alli Maddison Cantwell
    Vardy Rashford Ings

    Just when triple Liverpool defence looks like it's finally gonna take me to the top of my work mini-league, I wake up to provisional status disappointment...! ;-(

  26. aleksios

    Best def up to 4.5 for next weeks?

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Cathcart, Egan

  27. Zim0
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 22 days ago

    How's this team?
    Ryan Button
    TAA Lundstram Sidibe Dunk Reid
    Salah Mane DeBruyne Mads Traore
    Vardy Ings DCL

    1. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Light attack but could work out.

      1. Zim0
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Im thinking of shifting DCL and Traore to grealish and a fodder striker if they both dont do well the next 3 weeks and grealish does well

    2. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Even after the news

      1. Zim0
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        What?

  28. FOO FIGHTER

    Has the game ever taken this long to be updated?

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Yes

  29. Tshelby
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Thoughts on this move?

    2FT/1.1 ITB

    Guaita, Button
    Kelly, Kiko, Lundstram, Soy, TAA
    Mane, Alli, Richarlison, KdB, Hayden
    Ings, Jimenez, Vardy

    Alli and Kelly -> Grealish and Robbo

    Double pool defense?

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Looks good.

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Cheers Fish

    What's the consensus on Rico now? Has great fixtures but terrible form.

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      A classic hold.

      Surely more pressing matters than your 5th defender?

      1. BNMC
        1 month, 22 days ago

        If I'm gonna have a double LIV defense it's either him or Soy that has to make way. Getting rid of Soy seems harsh but at least Rico can remain bench fodder.

      New manager needed

      1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Hopefully big Sam is available

    3. Gregor

      Luton at home in the cup and then a week off should help them, bench for now.
