Haller leads West Ham attack as Fulham visit London Stadium

David Moyes has trusted Sebastien Haller (£6.1m) with the centre-forward role as West Ham host Fulham in Gameweek 8.

The Frenchman has been filling in for the stricken Michail Antonio (£6.2m), this his second consecutive start since his colleague’s hamstring injury against Manchester City.

Offered another shot at that role, it means suggestions of Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m) operating as a false-nine, at least from the beginning, have been dashed.

He has been deployed on the right-hand side of attacking midfield, Pablo Fornals (£6.4m) the man on the other side.

Moyes keeps faith with the 3-4-3 formation that has led to so many positive performances recently, which features Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) and Vladimir Coufal (£4.5m) as the wing-backs and Aaron Cresswell (£5.1m) on the left-hand side of the back-three.

Fulham go with the same front-four who starred in their recent 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

That sees Aleksandar Mitrovic (£5.8m) leads the Cottagers’ line with Ademola Lookman (£5.0m) and Bobby De Cordova-Reid (£5.3m) either side of Tom Cairney (£5.3m) in attacking midfield.

        He may only have 1 goal so far but if you watch, and look at the goal threat stats, he has been threatening for weeks to score. Fixture swing is key

      Not me, but Bissouma is still a better bench mid for FPL, by a long way.
      Do people start Soucek :S?

    Somebody pinch me. A 4pt hit finally came off (Ziyech & Chilwell in for Saïss & Pulisic).

    I usually sell a hat trick scorer or bring in someone who gets immediately injured. Hence the 2mil OR.

    Onwards and upwards from here I hope

    If you owned Bruno would you captain him at home to West Brom next week? Or would you still opt for someone like Salah in a tougher fixture against Leicester?
