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.

    Had planned Jim> Aguero.
    Hold for now?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Obvio

    2. Calvin Valance

      Yeah

    Early transfer thoughts for next week.

    Martinez
    Robbo Chilwell Aurier
    Jrod Salah Son Grealish
    Watkins Kane DCL
    Subs: Cahill, Strujik, Stephens

    Thinking of doing either of these for free
    A) Robbo + Watkins > Kilman + Werner
    B) Watkins + Stephens > Brewster + Foden

    1. abhirup780
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      do nothing

    2. Calvin Valance
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Interesting ideas, I think moving Watkins out is the priority as there are a lot of scoring strikers out there. I'd consider Antonio, Wilson, Maupay, Bamford or Brewster

      1. nani is michael jackson
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Watkins got a hat trick 2 gws ago. Bamford hadn’t scored in 2 gws. Patience is a virtue in this game. Villas fixtures are quality.

    Unbelievable finish in the World Series.

    I don't own any City assets and with their fixtures turning from game week 9, it's an decision for me either to get a city attacker or not, because they are not producing what they did last year, I think we are forgetting how crucial David Silva, Leroy Sane & Vincent Kompany were for them. I think they are good a team, but this is probably their transitional season.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Only Dilva is a loss compared to last season but he's a loss for sure.

      1. Hot Fuzz
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        City looked flat imo, only cencelo and sterling had the hunger.i liked diaz as he was trying to take control at the back.beside that they looked tired perhaps the transition to get used to the new look. On the other hand WHU was amazing they keeped the shape and looked like they enjoying themselves. The only wrong move I saw was the yamelenko sub he caused some trouble for his own site. Westham looking quit exiting imo.

  5. Nightrain_
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Been holding on to Burke as fodder but thinking have the fund to flip him to Klich and plan to rotate with Maupay or Zaha

    Is it a good move considering Leeds gel well and he's on pen ?

    1. Hot Fuzz
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I the same boat as you, will attack this in 2 gameweek, klich is not a bad shout. I am looking at SAID Benrahma if he starts or even March trossard scenario .just have to keep watching games. I am dare to say Fulham new signing lookman looks pretty decent the last 2 games but it's Fulham.

      1. Nightrain_
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        i'm looking at Creswell or Masuaku for WHU but Benrahma could be gold too, although need to see him. Is Antonio out for a while ? With fixture swing, Benrahma could fill the void

        Not looking at March and Trossard cause I already got Lamptey and Maupay so 2 BHA is enough and try to avoid as much Fulham as possible 🙂

        i previously intend to give Zaha his last game last night and consider to switch to Hames but with a brace and Hames' injury is still unknown, maybe Burke > Klich is best for now

        1. Hot Fuzz
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Fair call klich it is for you then. I know it is a Brighton triple up but somehow it sounds pretty good on paper lamptey trossard and maupay. Juicy in my ears...

    9 points from 3 including Captain Salah -
    Any good ?

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Depends on the remaining 8

    2. Offs!de
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Not bad at all

    3. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      It's an average of 3pts per player with the captaincy gone. If maintained the remaining 8 players will net you 24pts. Your total would be 33pts, not very good but not catastrophic.

      TAA to Chilwell for free? Yes or know? Thus I can upgrade Podence and Vinagre in the coming weeks. My defenders are TAA, Justin, Ayling, Mitchell, Vinagre

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Yup

      1 month, 4 days ago

      Why is FPL so difficult? I bought DCL after his hatrick then transferred him to Vardy after his hatrick then transferred him to Watkins after his hatrick. This week Watkins is going for Bamford. Let's see if it works

      1. Offs!de

        You need to watch the movie Tenet to play this strategy well

    5. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Who do people have playing today?

      JRod, DCL, Semedo, Podence

      Hoping for returns from all of them and optimistic. Rodriguez and Podence being benched would be gutting though

      1. Offs!de
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Decent chance of JR and Podence to start

      2. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years

        Sterling - Keep or Sell?

        1. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Keep

        2. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Keeping, could be striker and KDBs return should help him out. May swap to the Belgian soon though.

        3. Hot Fuzz
          • 4 Years

          I will sell just not this gw maybe next

        Money to spend...best option?

        A) Holding -> 5.8m (Chilwell) - leaves cash for Foden -> Zaha
        B) Holding -> 4.6m - leaves cash for Jiménez-> Aguero
        C) Save FT
        D) Something else

        McCarthy
        TAA, Bellerin, Lamptey
        Salah, Son, Foden, Barkley
        Kane, Jimenez, Antonio

        Steer, Mitchell, Bissouma, Holding
        Bank 2.0m, 1FT, WC available

          • 4 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Imo zaha is going to troll any owner even with those juicy fixtures. Not keen on dcl? Maybe holding for chillwell dcl for jimmi or Antonio if he is ruled out.but up to you,seems like you don't believe in the toffees. Good luck man

          1. Jinswick
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Yeah I do like DCL - had been meaning to get him for a while but kept having other fires to put out. Foden -> Rodríguez also an option. Chilwell seems to be on a lot of set pieces and has some good fixtures coming up, so v tempted with him. Thanks!

            1. Hot Fuzz
              • 4 Years

              No worries dude chilli looks pretty good indeed hope he stays injury free

        Safe to say the overperformance in goals is returning to normality?

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Bamford says no.

        2. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          No, Bamford four goals next week.

      7. SHOWSTOPPERRR
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Guys Mitchell keeping place ??

        1. Hot Fuzz
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          So far it seems like it, he is pretty good for his age just hard to tell how and when pva is coming into the thoughts for Cpl

        2. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Wouldn't bet on it with PVA back. Clyne could easily start at RB again.

          1. Hot Fuzz
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Imo clyne did quit well at RB liked his pace, but Mitchell is pretty decent on the opposite site.it seems like up to Roy when and how pva is going to fit in. But the young lad did quit well so far

          2. Offs!de
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            So, Is it PVA and Mitchell on left and right side, TM?

            1. TorresMagic™
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Clyne got subbed due to fitness, same with PVA coming on. They ended left and right but unlikely to start that way next GW imo.

              1. Hot Fuzz
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 4 days ago

                So no start for pva next gameweek?

                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 4 days ago

                  I think he'll start but only plays 60-70 mins. Mitchell MAY keep his place but it won't be long until PvA is first choice again.

                  1. tokara
                    • 6 Years
                    1 month, 4 days ago

                    Do u think PVA should be playing Schlupp position instead, more advanced

        3. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I guess Van Aanholt has a chance of playing as LM. Looks like Hodgson is not a fan of changing starting XI again and again.

          Milivojevic has been on bench since many weeks, same for likes of Sakho and Batshuayi. They are slowly getting back in starting XI.

            Won't happen. We have Schlupp & Eze to play on the left. Palace haven't spent £20m on Eze for him to be third choice. Eze not quite ready yet so Schlupp is first choice.

          Maybe for another game or two but i think PvA starts the next game now he's fit.

        I am going to watch the 2 games I missed yesterday only watched the extended highlights . Should I go with the pool game or man u game to start of with?any suggestions?

          Liverpool game had goals, so better to start with that 😉

        Who should you transfer out for Kane??

        A. Grealish
        B. Pulisic

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Pulisic

        2. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Grealish

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

          Pulisic

        4. Calvin Valance
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Tough one. I'd take Pulisic out because Chelsea attack is unpredictable at the moment. Going off last season though, get on Pulisic as soon as he starts getting returns, very streaky explosive player!

            It's not about Rank for me. I don't worry about it much.

        Salah - Mane - Firmino - Jota all started.

        Which position did Salah (c) play and what kind of formation they had? TIA

          4-2-3-1 with Salah ST, Jota RW, Firmino CAM, Mane LW.

          It was very fluid though, positional swapping aplenty with Salah drifting out to RW, Jota everywhere and all four popping up in the box at different times.

          1. Lazaretti
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Thank you. So Salah did not take Kane's position as a DM. =) Happy with that not happy for 2pts.

            Total 12pts atm. C played. 5players left

      14. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Low-key like the look of Rodriguez (C) next GW. I expect I'll wimp out and go Kane though.

        1. MINUS FOUR
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I've been thinking the same. Well done on the Man (C) shout this GW, I followed through with it too. Shame he didn't score that header but a decent result relative to Salah at least.

          1. Flair

          I don't have him. Played well vs FUL but did nothing vs BRI
          Still a bit too inconsistent. I know he's scored a few goals so far but he's not essential yet.

        Have this for next week. Planning to play James and bank the FT. Right call?

        1. Vazza
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Think you should keep Foden. His starting place is almost guaranteed with so many Man City absentees

        2. Vazza
            1 month, 4 days ago

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

            Any thoughts please?
