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.

      That is the handball rule. If you don't like it, lobby to get it changed.

        Correct application of a ridiculous rule.

        Its not the handball rule, its some bollocks they made up this season. Rules should be the same for defenders and attackers, thats never handball if a defender does the same.

        1. Bushwhacker
            1 month, 14 days ago

            It's never handball. Until . . .

        Ridiculous VAR decision. In what world is that handball under the rules of the game?? Idiots at the FA

        1. Dthinger
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          the new PL rules say that a goal will be disallowed if there is any contact with a player's hand in the buildup to a goal. It doesn't have to be a "handball"

          1. Brosstan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Yea and they made up that rule this season for VAR. Rules should be the same for defense and attack.
