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)
  • Penalty misses: Ademola Lookman (£5.0m)
  • Bonus points: Fabianski x3, Vladimir Coufal x2 (£4.5m), Soucek x1

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.

      Looks great

    2. DA Minnion

      Would prefer only one Everton up Front but rest is excellent.

    3. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year

      Fix forward (lower your risk by splitting them). Rest looks amazing

        Thx, but what is the risk for next 3 fixtures, then swap Rich to someone 🙂

    4. The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bam or Antonio instead of Rich use the savings in defence GTG

    Dias, cancelo, or targett—looking to maybe set and forget till a wildcard before GW16– what we are thinking, lads ...

  4. davies

    Best 4.5 def from next week onwards?

    1. Pep Roulette

      Targett imo

      1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…

        +1

  5. Carefree Crew
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Martinez, (Forster)
    Chilly, Cresswell, Coady, (Lamptey, Dunne)
    Sterling, Son, Ziyech, James, Foden,
    Kane, DCL, (Brewster)

    £1.8 ITB & 1FT.

    A) Son - Grealish
    B) Son & Kane - Grealish & Werner (-4)
    C) Foden - Grealish only

    GW 10 Foden/ Son to KDB & Coady to Dann as an enabler.

    Profit in Son as bought at £9.0 so £.3 profit, so that's the thinking of selling him over Foden who I bought at £6.5 so no loss of he goes down from £6.6.

    I want the City double up for their fixtures. Foden rotation isn't what I want long term but with their early season injuries I was prepared to risk it.

    Thoughts?

    Transfers have picked up speed from nowhere tonight

    1. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      WC's?

    2. ZimZalabim
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      everyone wants bruno incase he rises and thats making him rise faster so more people are buying him in case he rises, self fulfilling prophecy.

      Also almost no one can do it directly so there are a host of additional transfers for funds, although Kane seems to be shooting up as well which doesn't really make sense

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Kane scored and casuals are buying him therefore. He has 80 pts atm and that alone is reason good enough for many. Some are perhaps dowgrading Sterling or Son to Grealish and have funds to get him.

  7. Sturridge Wars
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Should I do Son > Ziyech ? Or Kane > DCL

    McCarthy
    Chilwell / Justin / Coufal
    Salah / Bruno / Son / Grealish / Soucek
    Werner / Kane

    Bench: Steer, Mitchell, Striujk, Davis

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      I think Son is a better option than Kane in the City game so Kane out

  8. DA Minnion
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Wilson to Watkins before the rise?. Have two frees.

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Yes

  9. klopptimusprime
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    1.9 ITB having just used my FT Son > Grealish
    Now with Trent out for who knows and no playing 4/5th defenders should I

    a) Trent to Dias +3.8 ITB
    b) Trent to Cancelo +3.9 ITB
    c) Hold until more information
    d) Mitchell to Sub 6.0 Defender

    Martinez
    TAA, Robbo, Chilwell
    Salah, Grealish, Zaha, Ziyech
    Jimi, DCL, Watkins

    Forster; Soucek, Mitchell, Dunne

    Cheers

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years

      B - Got to lose one of the LIV def

      1. klopptimusprime
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        yeah for sure, but is it risky compared to Dias

    2. Carefree Crew
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      B too.
      Cancelo plays really high up the pitch & has started the last 4PL games from memory. There are 3 x CL games in between GWs 9.10.11 & 12 so there is the risk of rotation, although I don't know the situation with Zinchenko or Mendy.

      TAA injury means he has to go, not checked but likely to fall again in price at some point, so I wouldn't wait too long.

      If he's not dropping wait for mid week in case Cancelo gets injured.

  10. Iceball
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Saiss to Cancelo hardly worth a hit even though also Mitchell so risk of no cover? Chilwell Zouma Lamptey can do the job this week, right?

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Should be fine for GW9

  11. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    TAA, Son and Vassilev to Cancelo, Bruno and Watkins (-4)?

    1.5itb 2ft
    Martinez Peacock
    Chilwell Taylor Justin Ayling TAA
    Grealish Salah Son Rodriguez Bissouma

    Hi folks, crucial decision I have to make tonight with price chances..
    Please help if you can

    A) Rash and Grealish
    B) Bruno and Jota

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      A if Rash is available. Jota in B is not worth the rotation risk

  13. Quan MisTaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Robbo to Chilwell (-4) and cut my losses?

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Probably yes

  14. 420king
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Martinez
    Robertson Chilwell Lamptey
    Salah Son Rashford Grealish Zaha
    Kane Bamford
    (Forster Brewster Dallas Ferguson)
    2FT, 0.1 ITB

    Got a lot of money tied up in Son and Kane so not sure about selling them despite their "hard" fixtures.
    How about Bamford to Watkins? Looks like I'll be priced out of that move after today.

    1. 420king
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Hmm Bamford should rise too, maybe I can wait...

    2. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Watkins probably shaves it ahead of Bamford due to fixtures but I think it's a sideway move. Keep Bamford

      1. 420king
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Need to use that FT somewhere but since Bamford is rising too I can wait on this one a bit longer. Thanks.

  15. Mirakuru FC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Think mitchel will ever regain starting?
    Options
    A) kilman - tough fixtures and maybe rotated
    B) lewis - but magpies ain’t keeping clean sheets and he hasn’t creating chances
    C) any other cheap playing punts?

    1. Cert
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 22 days ago

      targett for villa is probs the best atm. coufal for west ham as well and the more obvious ones for 4.5 are people such as lamptey, justin and walker-peters.

    2. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Targett

    3. Carefree Crew
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Scott Dann is £4.4m not sure if he's still nailed with Cahill & Sakho, but a good few fixtures & a romantic goal threat pick.

  16. Neo-Viper
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Taa to?

    Have Justin Chilwell Mitchel Coufal

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Cancelo or Targett

  17. Garam MOSALAH

    Should I WC this team:

    McCarthy | Nyland
    TAA | Taylor | Justin | Mitchell | Branthwaite
    Salah | Son | Barnes | Podence | Bissouma
    Kane | DCL | Wilson

    to

    Martinez | Froster
    Chilwell | Cancelo | Justin | Coufal | Branthwaite
    Salah | KDB | Bruno | Grealish | Soucek
    Bamford | DCL | Watkins
    (+1m ITB)

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years

      You could probably salvage your current team with 1-2 hits

  18. Sonder
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Thoughts on transferring out Son and Robertson for Bruno and Cancelo + 0.4 ITB? Any better options? Perhaps KDB (but that would require 3 FTs over 2 GWs) or Ziyech?

    Current team:
    Martinez, (Button)
    Robertson, Chilwell, Lamptey, (Dallas, Ferguson)
    Salah, Son, Grealish, Rodriguez, Zaha
    Kane, DCL, (Brewster)

    2 FT, 0 ITB

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Bruno and Cancelo moves look good. Considering to bring in both

  19. ZimZalabim
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    I need some help/advice

    I am on WC and I currently haven't sold Son or Kane and have brought in Vardy and Watkins among others. I need to bring Bruno in before he rises so I will sell Son to get him in but I'm still undecided if I end up going for Vardy or Bruno plus there is a small chance I keep Kane over these two.

    I also haven't decided if I'm going for Bamford or Watkins and they both are rising as well. If I sell Kane right now I can have all 4 players in for rises before I decide. The likeliest scenario is that I have one of Vardy/Bruno and one of Bamford/Watkins or potentially both budget strikers and will sell Kane. But there is that nagging doubt.

    So what should I do ?

    A. Let Bruno rise
    B. Sell Kane and lose Value tied up but get Bamford and Cancelo in as well.
    C. Sell Watkins for funds while I'm deciding

    1. popcoin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      C if Watkins isn’t definitely going to rise

      1. ZimZalabim
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        hes at 100.8 on stats so very likely to rise, could be skewed by WCs.

        I would only lose 0.1 on Kane or I woule have to pay 0.1 extra on the budget striker or Bruno so I guess it just evens out whatever route I take.

    2. popcoin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Can you afford Kane Vardy Bamford and Bruno?

      1. ZimZalabim
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        no I would have to get a 4.5 for Watkins for now.

    3. BUZZBOMB
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Can you sell Son, keep Kane, get Bruno, get Bamford? Difficult to offer without seeing your team.

      My front 8 on WC are

      Bruno Ziyech Grealish Jota Salah

      Dcl Kane Brewster

      Jota may not be in final but caught last night's rise. May go to 3 up with Bamford but depends on how rises and falls go.

      1. ZimZalabim
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        my current front 8 is
        Salah Grealish Ziyech Son Soucek
        Vardy Kane Watkins

        I cant get Bruno for Son without selling Kane or Watkins, would get Bamford in for Kane and Cancelo in for 3.9 fodder to catch those rises as well, before I finalise. Watkins would be to Brewster.

    4. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Is there any safe way to get the funds you need. Any player that you can downgrade and are not going to keep?

      1. ZimZalabim
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        I need 1.2m so its basically these two options

    5. Ginkapo FPL

      D. Decide

      1. ZimZalabim

        That would be a great solution

  20. Original - Wolves Ay We

    Son-->Ziyech

    Worth it?

    2. popcoin

            • 4 Years
            3 months, 22 days ago

            I would get him in

    3. Pukkipartyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Or Bruno but yes for sure.

  21. Tinmen
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Narrowed it down to this folks..
    Please help

    A) Son and Barnes to Rash and Grealish
    B) Son and Barnes to Bruno and Jota
    C) Barnes and Kane to Bruno and Watkins

    1. popcoin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Tough. Prefer Kane to Son, prefer Grealish to Jota, much prefer Bruno to Rash. Maybe C

  22. Will J 256
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is there a chance players could rise twice over the IB break?

    1. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Yes. They can rise up to thrice during a gameweek.

      Yep, but it's very rare. Bruno maybe.

      1. POTATO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Ziyech, for example, has risen once this week and is on the verge of rising again - so yes.

      Doubtful could be injuries etc so people hold fire

      Is there any news about when ricardo pierara will come back? Does Justin loose his spot?

        3 months, 22 days ago

        I shan’t think justin will lose his spot before the run of 3 bad fixtures in GW 13/14/5. But he has been training lightly with the team so should be back in december, so if you need to be certain long term about Justin, then be wary. However, Brendan was praising Justin hugely on the weekend and it’s a crazy season so who knows if Castagne gets injured again

      Morning,

      Any update on C Wilson injury? Is he expected to return for GW9?

      Thanks 🙂

        Waiting on test results but fear is could be out for a considerable time- possibly until end of 2020

          That bad!? Would be massive blow for NUFC
          In this case maybe I should get rid of him early. Too bad Antonio is injured as well

      Thoughts on this please

      Steele Mccarthy
      Target Chilwell Cancelo Coupar Justin
      Mane Grealish Ziyech Bissouma Fernandes
      DCL Antonio Vardy plus 1.5 in the bank

      Or

      Swap Vardy for Brewster and upgrade Biss to KDB? 0 in the bank

      Thanks

        At +98.9 on fpl stats so possibly

          * sorry- failed reply to Fit To Drop below

    • George Agdgdgwngo
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      To keep.

      Hamez or Robbo?

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Hamez no doubt. Look at the fixtures.

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          And I have Robbo and not Hamez

      2. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Rodriguez

      3. Fit_to_drop
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 22 days ago

        B. If only due to choice of scoring mids. Robbo replacements less common if you have 1 x Chelsea already.

      4. Boo Ya Ka Sha
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Hamez. There are plenty of decent defenders in the mid-price range

    • Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year

      Is Ziyech likely to rise tonight folks? Cheers

        Possibly- + 98.9 on fpl stats

      3. popcoin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        I’d say just about no

        1. popcoin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          From experience, FPLstats has bordered on the side of overestimation this season

      4. Pukkipartyy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Could be...

      5. Boo Ya Ka Sha
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        He will in the next couple days. What's keeping you from making the move?

        1. ZimZalabim
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          This.

          WCs could and likely are skewing it but if not tonight he will rise within the next day or 2

    • Boo Ya Ka Sha
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Would you do Kane, Son > Werner, Bruno for free, or would prioritize moving to a 343 with Watkins as 3rd striker?

      Martinez - Chilwell, Semedo, Lamptey
      Salah, KDB, Son, Grealish, Soucek
      Kane, DCL
      (Brewster, Dallas, Mitchell)

      1. popcoin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        With Soucek looking like a decent option, I’d go for option A

        1. Boo Ya Ka Sha
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          thank you!

    • Pukkipartyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Fernandes looks like hes gonna rise tonight? Have to make transfer coz exact money...

    • Steve The Spud

      Jimi and Foden to bamford and Bruno will be my 4th hit of the season already, I keep trying to make it the last one

      1. popcoin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Desperately trying to stop taking hits here to. Managed to resist this gameweek and got a green arrow - not a coincidence I think

      2. Boo Ya Ka Sha
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        I'm holding off on Bamford until gw14 when the fixtures turn. Why not Watkins instead? Like the move since Bruno is the ideal captain next gw.

      3. Pukkipartyy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Me too. This is the last hit 😀

        Yeah right...

      4. POTATO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Yes, this will be the second time I take a hit to bring in Bruno(c). Better work out better than last time.

        1. POTATO
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 22 days ago

          ...and both times it was to replace Son. Last time Son went on to score 24 points lol

          You would think I would learn to stop taking hits but no...

      5. Carefree Crew
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        GW2 for Son any chance Potatoe?

        I felt your pain too if so, although I didn't Captain him I think.

        I do have the same dilemma though, take Son out & he continues to deliver.

        Take Foden out before his fixtures turn when he's cheap.

        Still undecided...

        1. POTATO
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 22 days ago

          I still have Kane so retaining half the partnership for now.

        Hope it works out this time! 🙂
