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.

    Masuaku should have scored...

    I think I prefer him over Coufal. Doesn't look like Benrahma will replace Masuaku like I feared...

    1. Das Boot
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 19 days ago

      was thinking Masuaku myself

      I got him in this week, his stats are excellent

      1. G B
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 19 days ago

        Yep, over double the xAttPts of Coufal, and nearly twice that of Cresswell too.

        xAttPts
        Masuaku 0.74
        Cresswell 0.38
        Coufal 0.35

        (xAttPts = 6xG + 3xA)

      they surely will go 4231 when Benrahma is fit, no way Masuaku displaces Cresswell at LB when that happens

      Fab
      Coufal - Balbuena - Ogbonna - Cresswell
      Noble - Rice
      Bowen - Fornals - Benrahma
      Antonio

      1. G B
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 19 days ago

        Didn't realise he wasn't fit yet. It is still a worry then...

  2. Must.Go.Faster.

    Volley Ham looking dangerous

    Exact money for Wilson to Calvert-Lewin or Richarlison.. Which one is best? I’m leaning towards Richarlison on penalties but Calvert-Lewin ownership is scary

    1. asquishypotato
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 19 days ago

      It’s one of those that’s difficult - one has penalties and satisfies that itch of us being clever, plus he’s the better footballer.

      But DCL is leading the line and is always on the end of everything. So there is that.

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 19 days ago

      Rich tends to feed DCL

  4. Flair

    Rodriguez and DCL combining for 40+ points next GW. Dream is looking more realistic by the second

        West Brom 2.0

  5. Neves say Neves
    • 3 Years

    Cresswell should get at least 7 assist this game then

  6. tafrère
    • 5 Years

    Who would you chose :

    A) Son + Ziyech
    B) Bruno + Wilson

    1. KAPTAIN KANE

      yes

  9. Vazza
    • 1 Year

    McCarthy (Fodder)
    Robbo Bellerin Zouma (Fodder x2)
    Son Salah Grealish JRod (Bissouma)
    Kane DCL Jimenez

    WC surgery needed, right?

    1. jimmy.floyd
      • 5 Years

      Nah

    2. tafrère
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 19 days ago

      I'd downgrade Jimenez and upgrade Bissouma to Ziyech.

      1. Vazza
        • 1 Year

        Still leaves me with no Man U or Man C

        1. tafrère
          • 5 Years

          You can downgrade Robbo in GW10 and upgrade Son to KDB/Bruno no ?

      Low as defender is decent and quicker.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Professionals own Masuaku

    Though he looked good today despite not making contact with that header and would want him for that juicy WBA fixture. Cheers!

      Ziyech inform at the moment but Werner looks the best attacking player.

    7. Shark Team
      • 4 Years

      Chilwell Ziyech R.James all with tremendous attacking potential.

    I brought Ziyech in this week and feel actually quite lucky with the outcome. I wasn’t that impressed about the display. Sure his set pieces are world class but most of the game he looked to me as the « assist the assister » player. Very influential but does it translate into FPL points that much?
    Bps helps his appeal but t whole game I thought this player is going to frustrate you a lot.
    Kinda prefers Reece appeal actually.

      Eh

    2. Ha.
      • 6 Years

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 19 days ago

      I worry about the rotation in midfield so think I’m just going to get Chilwell

      1. G B
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 19 days ago

        They have no one that can replace Ziyech.

        That was painfully obvious when he was out injured.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 19 days ago

          Hmm

    4. G B
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 19 days ago

      I thought he was fantastic once again.

      I think Ziyech and James will be the main creative hub at Chelsea this season.

    5. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 19 days ago

      My thoughts are exactly the same and with CL games, he is risk to rotation/injury

      What game were you watching?

    7. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 19 days ago

      When Havertz and Pulisic are fit the assist the assister maybe valid. Not right now.

  30. Vazza
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 19 days ago

    McCarthy (Fodder)
    Robbo Bellerin Zouma (Fodder x2)
    Son Salah Grealish JRod (Bissouma)
    Kane DCL Jimenez

    WC to this =>

    Martinez (Fodder)
    Chilwell, Bellerin, Lamptey (Wilson, Fodder)
    Son Salah Grealish KDB Bruno
    Bamford DCL (Brewster)

    Bamford could also be Watkins
