Masuaku set for attacking midfield in Gameweek 22 opener

David Moyes has re-opened the door to an avenue once thought firmly closed.

Fantasy Premier League defender Arthur Masuaku (£4.2m) looks set for a return to the attacking midfield role he played during Moyes’ first spell as the West Ham manager.

He has been named in the same side as Aaron Cresswell (£4.7m) while attacking midfielders Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m) and Pablo Fornals (£6.0m) are both on the bench.

With the Hammers preparing for two fixtures in Double Gameweek 24, all eyes will be on Masuaku tonight.

Meanwhile, there is just one change to the Sheffield United side that lost at Liverpool.

Lys Mousset (£4.8m) drops to the bench so that Oli McBurnie (£5.7m) can star alongside David McGoldrick (£5.4m) up-front.

That means key Fantasy assets such as John Lundstram (£5.1m) and Dean Henderson (£4.9m) keep their places in the starting line-up.

Sheffield United XI: D Henderson; O’Connell, Egan, Basham; Stevens, Fleck, Norwood, Lundstram, Baldock; McBurnie, McGoldrick.

West Ham United XI: Fabianski; Cresswell, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Zabaleta; Noble, Rice; Masuaku, Lanzini, Anderson; Haller.

    Why has the no.1 OR put Martial 2nd on the bench (and behind Simpson)?

        Of course. And because he's in NZ he can still make transfers after the UK deadline.

        That's why he's no.1. He can bring in players who have just scored and still get their points.

      Casual who didn’t set bus team as son as last gw ended.

    Lundstram can still gain bps from the bench because he can't be dispossessed.

    I’ve missed whole game... what’s happened?

    Fab serious injury? He’s my only proper keeper

    1. SHUTUPHEATHER
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Not sure how serious. He was crying.

      1. ...al - Fireteam Zulu
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Nothing worse than just coming back from injury and getting another injury

        Such a horrible feeling that makes you wish you had a time machine

    2. Fred54
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Fab injured.

      Comedy goal for Sheffield United.

      Lundstram subbed.

      • 10 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

  23. El Magico5
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Anyone thinking of wc'ing next week to get triple pool in?

    Heaton* Guaita*
    TAA, Soy, Lund, Dunk, Willems*
    Kdb, Mane, Madds, Grealish*, Hayden
    Vardy, Rash*, Ings

    Ponential rash downgrade to fund grealish to salah. Make changes in defense aswell, poss holgate. Foster in the nets.

    What you reckon? I'm sitting at 100k so play a bit more safe or go for it?

    1. SHUTUPHEATHER
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      No. Don’t want to waste it on first DGW. More to come. Most have 2 already.

    2. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Mate you don’t need to WC at all. You already have 2 pool players. 2 FT to bring in another in 2 weeks time

  24. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    No chance West Ham score here.

    1. SHUTUPHEATHER
      • 2 Years
