Antonio leads the West Ham line again with Haller still on the bench

The Fantasy Premier League man of the moment Michail Antonio (£7.0m) has been handed another outing as West Ham’s centre-forward.

Fresh from netting four goals at Norwich last time out, the out-of-position FPL midfielder keeps his starting berth for the visit of Watford.

With Sébastien Haller (£6.8m) still on the West Ham bench, it allows Antonio to spearhead the attack once more.

The £7.0m man remains a key differential despite the recent interest in him.

His ownership increased by just over 130,000 managers between Gameweeks 35+ and 36+ but Antonio is still only in 3.5% of squads worldwide.

He will be helped in his cause by Mark Noble (£4.9m) tonight, who looks to be deployed in the number 10 role once again, a position he has taken on admirably in recent weeks.

Aaron Cresswell (£4.5m) starts at left-back once again while Ben Johnson (£4.0m) earns his first start since the restart at right-back.

There is arguably less interest in the Watford line-up but there are not too many shocks.

Craig Dawson (£4.8m), the Hornets greatest goal threat of late, retains his place at the heart of defence while the kindly priced Kiko Femenía (£4.2m) is at right-back once again.

Troy Deeney (£6.2m) naturally leads the line with Danny Welbeck (£5.8m) and Ismaïla Sarr (£6.0m) providing the width.

West Ham United XI (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Cresswell, Diop, Ogbonna, Johnson; Rice, Soucek; Fornals, Noble, Bowen; Antonio.

Watford XI (4-2-3-1): Foster; Masina, Dawson, Kabasele, Femenía; Hughes, Cleverley; Welbeck, Doucouré, Sarr; Deeney.

    will jimenez play?

    Who has higher chance of starting: KDB, Sterling

    1. Totti
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      KDB i think

    2. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Sterling

    3. Coys96
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      KdB - chasing assist record

    4. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Both will surely start next Prem game

  3. KP - FPL
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Does Greenwood start the FA Cup game and West Ham game?

    Got a horrible feeling he will only start one or am I overthinking it.....

    1. Coys96
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      If he starts both he will start West Ham, don't worry about it

    2. Rinseboy
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      think he plays both from the start

  4. The Count of Monte Cristo
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Middled.

    Holgate --> Tarkowski (FT) the best move to get 3 playing defenders? Want to ditch DCL but only really Wood at that price.

    DDG
    TAA - Doherty - Holgate*
    Mané - KDB - Pulisic - Foden - Fernandes
    Jesus - Greenwood

    DCL - Lascelles* - Robinson [1FT + 1.1m ITB]

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      (Playing FH38+ I should say)

    2. Rinseboy
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      looks good. Could do DCL to Wood or Maupay

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Thanks. Would it be worth a hit for either of those moves?

        1. Coys96
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Yes for Wood and play for Pulisic

    3. Coys96
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yes good move.

    4. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Got my eye on Tarks as well, good for a goal he is too, if not there’s Pieters playing OOP

  5. Rinseboy

    Do I need more city this week or not worth the hassle? One FT. 2.2 ITB
    A - Pullisic to Dilva
    B - Pullisic to Mahrez
    C - Salah to Sterling
    D - Salah to KDB
    E - Wait till 38

    Pope
    TAA Doherty Aurier Fernandez
    Salah Martial Bruno Foden Pullisic
    Vardy Jesus Greenwood

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      E - still a solid side with decent enough City options.

      Personally think Salah will score well this week - (non/owner)

            Haha cheers mate, yeah I brought him in before the Sheffield United game only to find out just before the match he was injured!! Was rather annoying!!

          *out

  7. Dosh
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    1. Mane-->Salah/Martial
    2. KdB-->Salah/Martial
    3. Both
    D. None

    Best option here?

    1. Totti
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      D

  8. The Count of Monte Cristo
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Are there any teams whose players you have not owned at all this season?

    For me it's Watford, Palace, West Ham and Bournemouth.

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      At least those 🙂

  9. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Who’d have thought this great team (on paper) would score 33 all out:

    McCarthy
    VVD | Saiss | Lascelles
    Salah (C) | Sterling | KdB | Bruno | Martial
    Vardy | Greenwood

    Button | Connolly | Kiko | El Mohamady

    FT was Sterling for Mane which didn’t pay off but glad I’ve got him in for the last 2 at least and it was too risky if I hadn’t and Sterling started and hauled.

    What to do next? Can’t workout if I’ve been desperately unlucky or just bad at the game.
    Hovering around 200k rank and was top 45k when it restarted 🙁

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      BB is left to play

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Low scoring GW overall - none of the usual suspects scored big. You are by no means the only one, don't worry.

      Any chips left?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Just BB left with no bench unfortunately really, so it’s a case of whether I take hits to have one or not

  10. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Start Foden or Pulisic?

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      P for me.

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Foden imo. He is due 😉

  11. Totti
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    any news on jimenez?

    1. Jet5605
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      What's the problem with him?

      1. Totti
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        people said that his wife will be on labour within days as per nuno esperito
        he may not play against palace

        1. Jet5605
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Let's hope so as my rival has him. I might send over some raspberry tea for his wife in order to get the ball rolling 🙂

          1. Totti
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            Hahahahahahahah

  12. Jet5605
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Already have Boly and so should I start:

    A Patricio (CRY)
    B Martinez (avl)

    1. Totti
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      A
      go big or go home 🙂

      1. Jet5605
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        My rival has Pat and Reina (ars) and so it kind of is a no brainer.

  13. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
    • 12 Years

    Is KDB a good choice for captain since he had his rest the last day?

    1. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Risky

      1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Suppose so. wolves/man u look safer but who to pick from them defence or attack....

  14. Slitherene
    • 3 Years

  16. swobe
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Just broke into top 50k thanks to Antonio and now 10 points ahead in my ML. Is it time to start thinking about blocking points? Or always attack the gameweek?

  17. Lord Flashheart
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Choose one cheap defender for the last two games:

    A Tarkovsky
    B Peters (cheaper and oop, but will he start both?
    C dunk
    D lampatay (nailed?)
    E someone else

  18. Mr. Chimes
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Start Egan (eve(h)) or Saiss (cry(h))
