Bowen and Fornals disappoint as Benrahma emerges at West Ham

WEST HAM 1-0 FULHAM

  • Goals: Tomas Souček (£4.9m)
  • Assists: Saïd Benrahma (£6.0m)
  • Penalty saves: Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m)

TAKE A BOWEN

Most of West Ham’s attacking assets disappointed in their first match of an appealing fixture run as they beat Fulham 1-0 on Saturday evening.

Fantasy Premier League managers have been waiting for the Gameweek 8 fixture swing for some time, even a Michail Antonio (£6.2m) injury not putting off a wave of investment.

Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m) and Pablo Fornals (£6.4m) picked up roughly 150,000 new owners between them but neither one particularly impressed even against Fulham’s poor defence.

Of the two, it was Bowen who came the closest to an attacking return, his powerful first-half effort from the edge of the box deflected and turned over by Alphonse Areola (£4.5m).

After that, the former Hull man did rack up a few more shots on goal, almost all of them from outside of the box. And, apart from his speculative efforts, Bowen struggled to get into the game.

The local press has somewhat critical of his performances recently, highlighting that they have been on the decline since the Gameweek 4 3-0 win at Leicester.

Meanwhile, the closest Fornals’ came to an attacking return was in the first half when he got round the back of left-back Antonee Robinson (£4.4m) and his cross was deflected into the path of Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) who fired a close-range effort straight at Areola.

Neither player was allowed to finish the game either, replaced by Saïd Benrahma (£6.0m) and Manuel Lanzini (£6.4m) in the 72nd minute.

While Bowen and Fornals’ owners are certainly likely to hold these assets for a plum Gameweek 9 trip to Sheffield United, who are still without a clean sheet this season, the fact that they looked so poor even against Fulham may be enough to put off further investment despite the favourable fixtures. 

“I think it says a lot about the players, it is a change. We are not going to try and be flakey to lose the game, we are going to stick at it and try to not lose. I wouldn’t say it was ugly, we dominated the ball in the opening ten or 15 minutes we had chances but the last 20 we tried too. What we didn’t have was the ability to beat somebody until (after the substitutions).” – David Moyes

LATE D-RAHMA

However, it was not all doom and gloom for West Ham’s attackers against Fulham.

Tomas Souček (£4.9m) finally delivered on his positive underlying statistics and got his first goal of the campaign.

Unsurprisingly, the midfielder’s penalty area presence characterised his latest performance, putting him in the right place at the right time to slot past Areola in the closing stages.

Those looking to invest in West Ham’s fixtures should also have Benrahma on their minds too, as it was his persistent determination that breathed new life into the Hammers in the last 20 minutes – and he got the assist for the winner too.

Admittedly, it was Benrahma who gave away a stoppage-time penalty for a foul on Tom Cairney (£5.3m) but Moyes did not seem concerned about that at full-time.

All things considered, such a display may convince him to start Benrahma against Sheffield United, which could see one of Bowen or Fornals drop out of the side, although it is hard to predict that with any degree of certainty. Either way, Benrahma’s emergence is sure to be a little frustrating for Fantasy managers assessing who the most nailed-on starters in the West Ham midfield are outside of Souček.

“(Asked about Benrahma’s impact): I hope you have seen Fornals and Bowen’s class as well in recent weeks so we have got really good competition in those positions. Saïd is a really good player, I have had lots of players from the Championship that I don’t expect too much from too quickly. He had an impact in both boxes but thankfully it went well for us.” – David Moyes

HAMMER BLOW

There was mixed news for West Ham’s defensive potential in their 1-0 win over Fulham.

A third clean sheet of the season was, of course, welcome news for the 120,000+ managers who signed Aaron Cresswell (£5.1m), who was unfortunate not to come away with attacking returns on Saturday.

Fabian Balbuena (£4.4m) and Haller both saw efforts either saved or hit the crossbar from Cresswell’s corners in the opening exchange, and the left centre-back also had an effort denied by Areola too.

It was Vladimir Coufal (£4.5m) who top-scored among the FPL defenders though, taking home two bonus points for eight points. He now has 25 from five appearances now, averaging five points per game.

A reason for those extras against Fulham seems to have been his persistence in the cross, although the quality of his delivery did not live up to Cresswell’s, something even Moyes inferred at full-time.

“One small thing, I think our crossing tonight was terrible and our ability to get into positions like that, we didn’t do well enough. We either overhit it or hit the font man and that was one aspect but we thought we would have more of the ball, it panned out that way later in the game and we didn’t quite pass the ball well through the lines enough.” – David Moyes

As for long-term clean sheet potential, it was somewhat alarming to witness West Ham’s game management in the closing stages, especially after going 1-0 up.

They struggled to handle the driving runs of substitute Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.9m) and looked likely to concede under Fulham’s attacking pressure. Of course, they would have done were it not for the fortuitous circumstances of Ademola Lookman‘s (£5.0m) awful penalty.

Meanwhile, Moyes will now be sweating on the fitness of Angelo Ogbonna (£4.9m), who picked up a muscle injury in the second half and has been the ever-present lynchpin in West Ham’s defence and could be missed sorely if his absence proves to be a long-term one.

“We’re a little bit worried about Angelo. Because it was a challenge in the box where I don’t think the player should have made the challenge on the goalkeeper and it has opened his groin up a bit so we’ll get him scanned and see what the outcome is.” – David Moyes

West Ham United XI (3-4-2-1): Fabianski; Cresswell, Ogbonna (Diop 63′), Balbuena; Masuaku, Souček, Rice, Coufal; Fornals (Benrahma 72′), Bowen (Lanzini 72′); Haller.

Fulham XI (4-2-3-1): Areola; A Robinson, Adarabioyo, Andersen, Aina; Reed, Zambo Anguissa (Cavaleiro 90+3′); Lookman, Cairney, De Cordova-Reid (Loftus-Cheek 83′); Mitrović.

    Is Chilwell worth 6m ?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Yes

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      I think he is

    3. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Yes. Especially if you're downgrading from Robertson or TAA.

    4. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      I think so. Surely on course to be one of the highest scoring defenders in the game all things considered.

    5. Your Man With The Hair
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      I'd say he's worth 6.5

    6. Garam MOSALAH
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Is he on set pieces ?

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Some, not all

        But his threat from open play is at left winger levels

    7. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Did you watch him v sheff united? Could have realistically scored a hat trick, playing like a winger.

    8. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      3 shots on target in one game is not right for a defender

      Stats that match classic Robbo and TAA, with returns to boot, and a strong defence promising clean sheets, while also being nailed

      He's worth 6m

    9. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Yes. Alonso 2.0, but on corners as well.

    10. Garam MOSALAH
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Thanks all. Cheers

  2. Dynamic Duos
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 17 days ago

    So this looks like the ideal team atm , with whatever bench fodder

    Martinez
    Chillwell Cancelo Cresswell
    Salah KDB Bruno Ziyech Grealish
    Watkins/Bamford/Antonio DCL

    1. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      It's very close to what I'm looking at on WC. Would also like Son and Jota for a mid slot but can't have them all.

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Agree and hoping to have that in place by week 10 although front 3 will be Watkins DCL (and Brewster)

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah Brewster is the bench fodder in attack

        My bench would look something like this

        Forster Brewster Lewis/Kilman Neco

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          Do you think that PVA an option over Cresswell with Palace fixtures or is Cresswell definitely one to go for?

    3. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Yeah

    4. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Hum.... idk. Not ditching Kane for sure.

    5. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      This is the template, yes. I like it

      I'm going for this with a -4 by GW10:

      Mart Steer
      Chilwell Cancelo Dias Coufal Vestergaard
      Salah KDB Bruno Ziyech Grealish
      DCL Bamford Brewster

  3. Your Man With The Hair
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 17 days ago

    Evening gents.
    I would appreciate a quick evaluation of the WC...

    Ryan | 4m
    Chilwell | Cancelo | Justin | Lamptey | Kilman
    Salah | KDB | Bruno | Grealish | Zaha
    Werner | DCL | Brewster

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      1st some team value, 2and very nice

    2. Don Corleone the 1st
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Seems fine. No major risks there, however, if going for 3-5-2, I'd rather Ziyech than Werner.

      Don't like double Brighton at the back.

      1. Your Man With The Hair
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        I'm really struggling on the goalkeeper front. Don't feel inspired by anyone under 5.5m

        1. Garam MOSALAH
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          McCarthy instead of Ryan as you have Lamptey as cover.

  4. Don Corleone the 1st
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 17 days ago

    I guess I need to ship Maupay.

    A) Already have Grealish, so not sure if I want to double up with Watkins.

    B) Bamford has some interesting stats, but I'm still not sure if he (and Leeds) can keep up, especially in the next 6 gameweeks.

    C) Wanted Antonio, but not sure should I wait for him or not.

    D) Wilson seems sensible choice if not injured (especially after CHE game).

    Appreciate any thoughts.

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 17 days ago

      I have Grealish also but I am also considering Watkins double up. I would say him or Antonio if fit soon

      1. Don Corleone the 1st
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah, Watkins really looks good for next 7 gameweeks. Judging by ticker, it's between him and Bamford.

  5. baines is god
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 17 days ago

    what's the situation with mitchell and saiss?

    both lost their starting spots?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Saiss has lost his spot. Mitchell is flagged as injured but I think he is also been dropped for PvA

  6. Stormbringer22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 17 days ago

    Cancelo or Cresswell? Have Chilwell already. Ta!

    1. Your Man With The Hair
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      it's a toss up but hopefully Cancelo locks down his spot.

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Cheers! Rotation my only concern with Cancelo. Cresswell seems to be on fire as well

  7. tuvok
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 17 days ago

    How bad has Brewster been? Not that he has to do much to justify 4.5 but will he continue to play?

    1. Ha.
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Imposter

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      He offers more than anyone else you can get at that price in attack or mid, it is that simple

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Had tough fixtures and getting used to playing with SHU and in PL. I expect him to improve as season goes on and be decent bench fodder if required

    4. tuvok
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    This may mean nothing, but I notice Son has scored four times in his last five matches against Man City.

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Interesting. Thanks for that info! May save myself a -4 and keep Son for 1 more fixture

    2. No Professionals

      Think city is a good fixture for him as they’ll come out and leave space in behind

    3 months, 17 days ago

    McCarthy
    Chilwell / Lamptey / Justin
    Salah / Bruno / Grealish / Zaha
    Kane / Werner / DCL

    Forster / Kilman / Mitchell / Stephens

    Changes required?

    1. Corona is not good 4 U
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Not in my opinion. But Mc. Carthy will not get many clean sheets in the next game weeks.

    2. Nespinha
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Thoughts on these moves over the next 2/3 weeks:

      GW9) Ferguson --- Cresswell / James

      GW10) Robbo + Son --- Lamptey / Coufal + KDB

    3. Daniel - WC Active
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      So actually we are all banking that KDB will outscore Kane because of the fixtures. Bold and risky prediction I must add

      1. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah I don’t like Kdb instead of Kane, I’d want both. A fit and inform Kane is everything you want.

        Nailed
        Shoots on site
        No early subs
        Penalties
        Doesn’t rely on one type of goal

        1. Daniel - WC Active
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          I am checking the fixtures whether I will captain KDB and might reconsider.

          Kane is 1m cheaper too.

          I can get Bruno without loosing Kane. The issue is KDB. If I want him I/we have to sell Kane

          1. No Professionals
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Yeah, I’m thinking the single transfer to aguero if fit for a couple of plum home games is a better option.

            1. HMC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 17 days ago

              Aguero gonna troll. Can’t stay fit. I’d be more confident on Jesus

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            KDB C fixtures: Burnley, Fulham, West Brom, Newcastle. All in the next 8. Everton's shaky defence and attack-focused gameplay counts too, as Bruno has already demonstrated

            1. Daniel - WC Active
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 17 days ago

              But all those games I can captain Salah as well

    4. Corona is not good 4 U
        3 months, 17 days ago

        What is actually going on with Wigan Athletic (I do not live in the United Kingdom so I do not see that much). A few years ago they won the FA Cup and now they are at the bottom of the League One table and lose to an absolute underdog team in the FA Cup (FC Chorley). Last season they had a good midfield position and were only relegated because of the bankruptcy. Do you now have to be afraid that they will disappear into insignificance and did it lead to bankruptcy mainly because of the Corona pandemic? Thank you!

          May have just over extended themselves and are now paying the price.

          Loss of gate receipts sunk em but there must have been problems before that to say they went down so fast.
          I don't even think soccer is the most followed sport in that part of Engalnd and most people around there follow rugby if i am not mistaken.

          Repost. Early thoughts here? 2ft 0.6itb

          Martinez
          TAA* Robbo Taylor
          Salah Son Ziyech Foden
          Jimenez DCL Watkins

          Button Soucek Ayling Lewis

          A) TAA, Foden to 3.9, Fernandes
          Means playing two out of Ayling, Taylor, Lewis.

          B) TAA, Foden to James, Chilwell

        6. Danstoke82

          Foden > Grealish 1FT?

          The uncertainty over Foden’s minutes is becoming an issue whilst Grealish is looking the real deal now. Yay or nay?

          1. Daniel - WC Active

            I would do it even for a hit

          is it worth doing Jimmy to Martial this gameweek for a -4? or wait and do it next gameweek for free?
          I don't have any united players right now.

          1. Pukki Party
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Wait

          2. No Professionals
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            I wouldn’t do it even for free, I’d go cheaper than martial and free up some money

          3. Danstoke82
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Martial really not appealing at the moment. Personally think the only United asset to look at is Bruno. Seems central to every attack.

            Just crash the spot down to DCL, Bamford, Watkins, Adams or Antonio if fit. There's nothing backing getting Martial now. It's a luxury punt and he isn't the team's talisman this season either, so they might score 4 goals before he gets a return, which can be frustrating

            It's easier to wait and miss his first haul before jumping in. Cavani might even be pushing for a start now

            Go cheap

          Due to funds for my further plans I need to use 1 of my 2 FTs today due to price changes.

          Maupay ➡

          A) Watkins
          or
          B) Bamford

          Which?

          TAA price protected if the news he's out 4 weeks is true?

            Nope

                "When a player is injured (0% chance of playing), suspended or on loan his price can still change in value. However, once his status has changed again his price will be "locked"."

                  I didn't make the rules, so no idea.

            Higher amount of sales needed for him to drop if he is red flagged though.

          2ft
          A) Foden to Barkley
          B) Foden and Son to Grealish and Ziyech

            As Barkley owner I would prefer B

        11. Gemma817

            Ziyech or Grealish? Have zero players from either team

            First draft on WC team. Thoughts?

            Martinez
            James - Justin - KWP - Targett - Dias
            Salah - Grealish - Zaha - Bruno Fernandes
            DCL - Kane - Wilson

            Would like to do Bruno -> KDB just dont know how.

              looks good but you do need 5 midfielders

                While going for Brunos full name I must have forgot my bench fodder - Bissouma

              Wilson out for a while I think so would get Watkins. You need Chilwell in defence

            time to WC? Just the one FT, with 5.4 in the bank.

            McCarthy - Steer

            Chilwell - Bellerin - Justin - Dier - Mitchell

            Son - Salah - Barkley - Podence - Bissouma

            Kane - DCL - Maupay

            The reason for selling Spurs assets isn't that they're expected to blank

            These are premiums, two of the best players in the league. Premiums can explode in any game, even against big 6, Wolves, Villa, Leicester and S'oton

            The reason is that the other premiums have fixtures in which they're expected to have a higher chance of exploding, hence C or VC hauls

            Higher chance of a haul means more points expected. It might end in tears, but that's part of the fun of this game: predicting hauls

            Those who hold on to Son and especially Kane can easily be rewarded if they tick along or explode, but the premium price locks you away from some other expensive combinations with good fixtures

              That is very bad news for Wilson and Newcastle if true.

              He must have given his hammy a bad tear if that is the case.
