Injury updates on Aguero and Antonio as De Bruyne returns to FPL action

WEST HAM 1-1 MAN CITY

  • Goals: Michail Antonio (£6.3m)| Phil Foden (£6.6m)
  • Assists: Vladimir Coufal (£4.5m) | Joao Cancelo (£5.4m)
  • Bonus: Coufal x3, Antonio x3, Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m) x3

Kevin de Bruyne (£11.5m) made his injury return from the bench in Gameweek 6, playing 25 minutes as Manchester City failed to fully break down a deep West Ham defence in a 1-1 draw.

With much of the pre-match attention on Pep Guardiola’s men, surprisingly, it was the Hammers’ assets who came out of this one with more promise for future Gameweeks.

The moment of the first half came from Michail Antonio (£6.3m), who held off Ruben Dias (£5.5m) in the Manchester City box to fire a bicycle kick past a frozen Ederson (£6.0m).

That was Antonio’s third goal in the last five matches, particularly impressive considering the tough run of games West Ham have faced. With their fixtures turning for the better in Gameweek 8, the £6.3m forward has only cemented his place on transfer watchlists around the world.

Joining him there is surely Vladimir Coufal (£4.5m), whose cross Antonio converted after good work from Tomas Soucek (£4.9m). The right-back has now assisted in each of his last two games and, given the way West Ham held Manchester City at bay, could be the sort of option to offer double-digit potential when the fixtures turn.

However, Fantasy managers will have to pay close attention to upcoming press conferences for West Ham, as well as Manchester City’s next media commitment.

At the London Stadium, Antonio was forced off after 52 minutes, while Manchester City front-man Sergio Aguero (£10.4m) only lasted until half time.

On the Argentine, who was starting his third game in eight days following a lengthy injury lay-off, Guardiola said:

“He’s injured. A hamstring I think.” – Pep Guardiola

Hammer blow

On the injury that forced goalscorer Antonio off early in second half, David Moyes was coy:

“We don’t know, we will have a check. He came off against Spurs with something similar. He didn’t miss training so we hope it’s not much. He is so important to us. He couldn’t decide if he was cramping up or not. We will get him scanned and see how he is.” – David Moyes

On the striker’s goal, the Irons boss added:

“It’s the sort of thing as a kid you always wanted to do, to score an overhead kick. It was a terrific goal. He has been great for us, he can run, we can play into him – all good teams need a good centre-forward and we have a good centre forward at the moment.”

Phil your boots

The introduction of Phil Foden (£6.6m) at half-time changed the game for Man City, providing a much sterner test of West Ham’s low-block defence.

Guardiola was all too aware of how the Hammers would set up, though it took Aguero’s injury to make a game-changing substitution.

“We started really well. We suffered in the last 10 or 15 minutes of the first half. In the second half we were better and scored early. We had the chances we needed to win the game, but unfortunately we couldn’t score. We created enough. Their defenders were defending so deep so it’s difficult to find spaces but we had the chances. I’m not a guy who can predict the future. We’ve already dropped seven points, which is a lot. But we’ve struggled a lot for many reasons. We have to take things game by game and see what happens.” – Pep Guardiola

Foden netted after just six minutes on the pitch, firing past Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m) from a low Joao Cancelo (£5.4m) cross.

While it was frustrating for his 7.9% ownership to see the midfielder on the bench initially, especially as he was City’s top-performing asset for shots in the box and big chances pre-Gameweek 6, they can certainly take solace in his chances of a start moving forward.

Foden has now been rested from the beginning in each of Manchester City’s last two matches in all competitions and, following Gameweek 6, Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) is the only midfield or attacker with more FPL points than him (two goals one assist).

On the England midfielder, Guardiola added:

“As always he gave us something extra.”

Guarded performance

Despite controlling possession, City once again lacked a cutting edge in Gameweek 6, clearly suffering without having De Bruyne available for the full 90 minutes.

Guardiola may claim to have been happy with his team’s overall showing but it took until the 89th minute for the Manchester outfit to create a meaningful opportunity, with the exception of Foden’s strike.

Having eventually found an opening to counter-attack West Ham, De Bruyne’s through ball set Sterling through on goal.

However, a heavy touch allowed Fabianski to position himself well to block the midfielder’s effort.

The West Ham goalkeeper explained:

“I think he took a bit of a heavy touch, so I tried to make myself big. I don’t think he had a chance to go around me. I managed to keep it out. In those situations you always have to make smart decisions. I think that’s what I’ve done today. We are pleased with the point and with the performance, especially defensively. We played very strongly against a very good side. We knew what to expect from City and knew what we had to do defensively.” – Lukasz Fabianski

A ludicrous backpass attempt by substitute Andriy Yarmolenko (£5.7m) allowed Sterling in behind again on 92 minutes but a combination of too many touches and too many West Ham defenders snuffed out the England forward.

On the substitution of Kyle Walker (£6.0m), Guardiola revealed:

“He was exhausted.”

Moyes, meanwhile, also had praise for his central midfield duo.

“We’re trying to build a young, energetic team. Tomas [Soucek] and Declan [Rice] have been excellent. We have been really pleased with them. I hope it continues but I’m not getting carried away. There have been good signs.” – David Moyes


West Ham United XI (5-4-1): Fabianski; Cresswell, Ogbonna, Balbuena; Masuaku, Rice, Soucek, Coufal; Fornals, Antonio (Yarmolenko 51′), Bowen (Haller 68′).

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Garcia, Dias, Walker (Zinchenko 77′); Gundogan, Rodri, Bernardo (De Bruyne 67′); Sterling, Aguero (Foden 46′), Mahrez.

        who would you switch

      2. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        I think you've a lot of cash tied up in midfield and not enough up on forwards.Sterling or Salah to Foden and Watkins to Kane, Vardy?

      3. skodaole2
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Your midfield is fine, Watkins needs some patience, maybe a transfer in defence. If you have WC available I would do it only if you intend to change at least 8-9 players and also the formation (3-4-3)

    • tc93
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      2FT for next week- which is the best option?:
      A) Ings + Bissouma —> Brewster + JRod (and switch to 3-5-2)
      B) TAA + KWP —> Chillwell + Digne
      C) other - recommendations?

      Martinez
      TAA / taylor / Lamptey
      Salah / Son / Zaha / Grealish
      Kane / DCL / Ings

      Button, KWP, Michell, Bissouma.

      1. Saint Tim

            • 9 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Because I think Digne and Chilwell will our score JRod+Brewster

              I'm not starting brewster lol - he'd go on the bench

      2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        B but I would keep KWP and lose Taylor

        1. tc93
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          no love for JRod? He's got some great fixtures coming up

    • GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Coufal, 4.5m, fixtures ease after Pool, might still do something in that game. >5 points per game.

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        great call

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Masuaku still more offensive in my opinion but then again on the current evidence I know f.. all about football.

      3. Blue&White85
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        I was looking at Masuaku but this is a good shout.

      4. Penang Sandman
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Coufal prone to yellow, however still a puts better effort than Masuaku

        1. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Yeah, hopefully as he gets more used to PL he'll improve the card count.

      5. LegendMoon
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        I'm on Coufal now , can't argue with 2 assists in 3 starts

    • Saint Tim
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      What to do with this mess please?

      Ryan, Steer
      Chilwell, KWP, Justin, Targett, Mitchell
      Salah, Son, Bruno, Rodriguez, Bissouma
      Jimi, Werner, Mitro
      £0.4m ITB and 1 FT

      Who needs to go first?
      Mitro? To Bamford maybe?
      Werner? To DCL maybe?
      Something else?

      Got away with no Salah this week, but my differentials of Bruno and sterling didn't do anything either.
      Thinking
      A) sterling and TAA to Mané and robbo (-4)
      B)sterling and James to Mané and Lamptey/coufal (-4)

      From previous experience, relying on Spurs and Everton to save your game week is always bad

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Their ownership is high anyway so I'm not depending on them as much..
        For me Ings and Maupay are the key ones to save my week due to lower ownership..

    • LLoris

      So if Podence blanks who are you lads gonna put in?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Going to give him one more week. Then trade out for someone like Grealish which would mean downgrading Robertson. Or simply switch to Bowen.

      2. Flair

        I'm debating dropping him to a 4.5, upgrading Reece to Chillwell/Dias and playing 4-4-2

          That’s a good option, too. If I were to do something similar I would upgrade Brewster to Antonio and play 3-4-3

              your team isn’t linked by the way

              Good luck and hope you get some jam off your bench

      2. Vazza
          1 month, 7 days ago

          I’m considering moving Salah to Mane. This would give me an additional 0.3m to upgrade elsewhere..

          Any thoughts please?

                Goal numbers settling down. Defence might be back in vogue in two weeks

                  Early planning/ tinkering.
                  Honestly not sure what I’ll use an FT on for next week. I want Rodriguez but no clear way of getting him other than losing another good player. Any ideas? Just strengthen bench?

                  2FT 0.5itb
                  Martinez
                  Robbo, Chilwell, Dallas
                  Salah, Son, Pulisic, Grealish
                  Kane (C), DCL, Maupay
                  (Forster) (KWP, Stephens, Braithwaite)

                  Any input appreciated!

                    Maupay to Antonio if Antonio is passed fit and Maupay doesn't look good maybe?

                    Wow someone else sub 3m (3.1m OR here). I would save FT and reassess the following GW.

                    James to Ayling, then Watkins to Antonio next week

                    C for me. Think he might be worth holding for a couple of weeks

                    Castagne, more than 5.5 but worth it I think. Antonio has a hamstring injury.

                    C. Only because I've got other problems.

                    One saving grace with this performance is he might hold his value. My defence is bargain bucket, so from now will just play him in the hope he starts in easier fixt.

                    Don't forget Chillwell has on going foot problem so Azpi and James might have to start.

                      Cheers guys. Yes a total shocker after 5 very good years

                      Very rough to take right at the bottom of my mini leagues

                      I do think james needs to go

                      Guess will wait for antonio news. Think he looks great from gw8.

                      Ayling could be nice. Thanks

                  When you need Lamptey and Castagne to turn a huge red arrow in to a slightly smaller red ...
                  The rest are too highly owned to matter. Still smarting as a Salah C
                  And TAA Robbo owner. Came away with nothing on another day there was 30-40 points there. Oh well might as well stay on the road now - hauls are coming right? 🙂

                    Yeah Lamptey, Podence and Semedo my only real diffs... except Saiss to score.

                    Except I don't have Jimi...gulp.

                      Yeah and this far behind already and Kane C to put the nail in this coffin of a week.

                        Kane was my bus captain.

                        Chickened out to Salah.

                          It’s cool. Lamptey for 20 points !!!

                    I need a Lamptey and Jemal Lewis haul. FML.

                    Even if your players have high ownership, if they score you go higher, so i wouldnt rely only on the two defenders. Most of the people who had a good score until today have Bamford, Zaha, Foden, Chelsea defence, Mane etc may have already used 7-8 of their players so they may not have Son, James, DCL, Kane. The vast majority had Salah, LIV defence, many have KDB or Sterling in their teams and CPL, AVL defence. Bamford's good ownership is the only hard part of the week so far.

                    However, the second sentence of your post could make you wonder if its time to put more differentials into your team.

                  is it time to wc ?

                  Martinez - Button

                  TAA - Reguillon - Chilwell - Justin - Chilwell

                  Salah - Sterling - Son - Podence - Bissouma

                  Jimenez - DCL - Mitrovic

                    I don't think so, is there any way you can get Kane easily?
                    Also, 2 Chilwell's :P?

                    Nope. Defence and mids are fine.
                    I would just replace Jimmy and Mitro. One of them can be Antonio in 8 and I think it looks good.

                    Thinking I'll should prob look at shipping Jimi to Kane by either:

                    A) Sterling -> Rashford/Bale
                    B) Robbo -> Creswell/other def

                    Thoughts or suggestions most appreciated

                    Robbo, Chilllwell, Saiss, Lampety, Mitchell

                    Jimi, DCL, Breeding

                    What to do with this lot next GW 1FT, should I bank it? or bring in JRod and go 3-5-2? I also want to mix up my defence, it may be time to loose TAA
