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)

  • 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.

    With TAA out Milner will play as RB in the league and Neco Williams in UCL probably. Means Salah wont be on pens.

    Also thinking to do Salah to Jota in GW 10 on WC and afford KdB and Sterling with Bruno in midfield. I would take back Mo in GW12 for Fulham away for Sterling.

    Thoughts?

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Pretty sure Salah will keep pens.

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Salah keeps them ive heard

    3. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Last time both were on the field for a pen salah took it

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Salahs record is great from the spot and being the takisman he has naturally taken over. Wasnt surprised ine bit when salah took it over milner in ucl

      2. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Yup because it was 93 min and it was Midtyland. Pretty sure Milner will take pen

    4. Reeker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Think Salah stays on pens.

    5. Niho992
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      So guyzzzz even if Salah stays on pens you wouldnt sacrificed Salah for Sterling for 2 GWs?

      Burnley and Fulham at home...

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        I wouldn't, no.

  2. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    A) Son, Reguilon
    B) Bruno, Cresswell (-4)
    ?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Yes

  3. fcsaltyballs
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Martinez
    Robertson Chilwell Dallas
    Salah Son JamesR Grealish Foden
    DCL Kane

    Forster Saiss Brewster Ferguson

    2 FT, 0.0 itb

    What to do with my 2FT?? Or maybe just use 1FT and roll the other one for now, possibly Saiss >> Lamptey / Coufal ??

    I know Foden is an issue, but perhaps 1 more week and it gives me 2FT to play with for Citys GW10 >> onwards run.

  4. Taegugk Warrior
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    A. Son + Barkley to Ziyech + Grealish for free
    B. Son + Brakley + JImenez to Fernandez + Grealish + Watkins for -4 hit

  5. PL Ball
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    McCarthy
    AA* - Shaw* - Walker-Peters (Mitchell*, Saiss*)
    Salah - Son - Bissouma - Greenwood* (Romeu)
    DCL - Kane - Werner

    2FTs. 0.2 ITB
    5 Major issues*

    Fixable with -8 or Wildcard?

    1. Olson
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Mitchel is surely not a major issue meriting a transfer

      1. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 15 days ago

        But Bissouma in the XI is. Probably might as well WC now.

    2. Taegugk Warrior
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      WC, Considering this IB.

  6. dezille
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Already did TAA to Cancelo, leaving me 4.0 ITB with 1 FT.

    Martinez
    Cancelo Chilwell James (Justin, Mitchell)
    Salah Son Grealish Foden Podence
    Kane DCL (Brewster)

    A) Foden > Bruno (exact money tonight, but don't think he will rise)
    B) Wait, if priced out of Bruno, consider Rashford/Rodriguez/Ziyech

    Will likely switch to a 442 for the next few (Justin fixtures are quite nice), so will look to upgrade either Foden or Podence

  7. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Justin or Bellerin?

    1. Klip Klopp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Beller

    2. Niho992
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Justin. Cheaper and play in better team.

  8. Klip Klopp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Son or Zaha to Ziyech?

    1. Niho992
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Zaha

      1. Klip Klopp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Thanks

  9. Niho992
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Do i need WC ? Dont have Bruno or KdB for upcoming fixtures and i must choose one of them if i want to keep WC.

    McCarthy
    Ayling-Chilwell-Justin
    Son-Salah-Hamez-Grealish
    Kane-Mitro-Jimenez

    Steer-Bavies-Bissouma-Mitchell

    1 FT and 1.0 iTB.

    I will do Bavies to Targett and bench Justin. Can do Son to Bruno for -4 or hold and bring KdB for hit week after or use WC in GW 10...

    Anyone with similar position?

    1. Klip Klopp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Don't wildcard but I would bring Bruno in for a -4 if you don’t mind taking hits

      1. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        I took hit only once this season so im open to take more hits. But Q is how to afford City assets for GW 10 and GW 11? Vardy also for GW 10. urggggggghhhh maaan

  10. Taegugk Warrior
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    A. Son + Barkley to Ziyech + Grealish for free (Give JImenez 1 last chance)
    B. Son + Barkley + JImenez to Fernandez + Grealish + Watkins for -4 hit

    1. Klip Klopp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Why lose Barkley with Villa’s great fixtures?

      1. Taegugk Warrior
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        swap with grealish

        1. Sanchit
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Too sideways for my liking. But yes would do that only if you have a spare transfer.
          Not for a hit for sure.

    2. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Why remove Barkley!

  11. Klip Klopp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Zaha + Reguillon —> Ziyech + Coufal?

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Why remove Zaha!

  12. AF90
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Does TAA'S injury make Robertson more attractive (more set pieces possibly) or more reason to sell him too?

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Arguments both ways
      He should get more set piece action so attacking returns could increase. Doesn’t help CS potential not that TAA was there for defence anyway

      1. AF90
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Yeah thinking of selling to raise cash for Fernandes

  13. Futureform
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Would you do this for a -8?

      Wilson/Grealish/Mitchell/Dallas to Bamford/Ziyech/Chilwell/Kilman

      Have exact money for now only.

      1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Reguilon and Son to Cresswell and Bruno for a hit? I have Coufal so it would be a WH double up but could easily switch to Dias/Cancelo later.

        1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Sry reply fail, I wouldn't get rid of Grealish

          1. Futureform
              2 months, 15 days ago

              No worries - thank you. Yes Grealish looks good. Just wish I could get Ziyech too.

        2. Olson
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Just wait. One injury to a player you own could force a transfer, free up money and change all of your possibilities. There are so many ways to skin a cat and you'll know exactly what they are come the pressers.

          Given an international break and Covid it is not really unlikely that a -8 could become a disastrous -12 or -16.

          1. Futureform
              2 months, 15 days ago

              Thanks for this. That's a whole lot of sense, and was my worry with forcing a very specific set of moves via a -8 with the int break. Actually what you had happened to me at he last int break, doing a bunch of moves and then the KDB injury happened!

              1. Olson
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 15 days ago

                It's really easy to fixate on a combination of players that you think you must have. If you wait, the worst that can happen is that a few 0.1+ occur and you have to adjust one of the players that you are bringing in. Or free up a bit more from elsewhere. There are so many ways for you to go about this and they are in your control

                With acting now there are so many things that can go wrong and they are not

        3. Yank Revolution

          Son/Zaha/TAA out
          Ziyech/Bruno/Cancelo in?

          -8

          1. Jink
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years

            Good moves, but do it over 2 weeks.

            • 5 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Zaha is one of the highest scoring midfielders. On penalties. Why sell? TAA definitely... would have sold months ago. Son, sure, I understand the need to free up funds there...

            Would get rid of those 2, and obv Cancelo plus whomever you feel can be more consistent. For me that might be Bruno, but I do like the look of Ziyech even if I will not likely hold a Chelsea player all season.

          1. Niho992
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            And they will score 7-8 vs Burnley and Fulham

              • 1 Year

              Think they will settle for a 1-0 in their current state

            They now have a striker. I think goals will now come.

          From gw10, Vardy Jesus DCL frontline for the next 4-5 games?
          Selling Kane and Jimenez
          Then can do Son to Rashford/Ziyech if needed or a double move to get Bruno
          Bit different but could pay off??
          Appreciate your thoughts (team is linked)

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Don’t like that front line when there’s so much value in cheap forwards this year. One premium is plenty

            1. HMC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 15 days ago

              Fair enough, so the likes of Bamford can cover these guys. Just not sure best way to get premium mids but will keep tinkering. Have Foden which I’d like to move on too

          2. Jink
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            If you aren’t planning on captaining Vardy for any of the 4-5 weeks you have him, then no.

            Werner long term but Vardy for short term punt from GW10 onwards. But make sure you have Ziyech to cover Chelsea.

              He's on the desktop version but not the app. I wonder if this is a known issue and whether there are anymore hidden players not seen on app.

            Mitchel down. Ok, looks like there will be a lot of price rises this IB. I am ready and waiting my squad value to rise and get ready for the second part of the season

          Martinez (Forster)
          Robbo, Chilwell, Saiss (Dallas, Mitchell)
          Salah, Son, Pulisic, Grealish (Soucek)
          Kane, DCL, Bamford

          Best way to use my 2ft and 0.8 itb?

          A) Saiss + Pulisic > Cresswell + Ziyech
          B) Robertson + Pulisic > Cresswell + Bruno

            tricky but i'd rather have Robbo over Saiss than Bruno over Ziyech. Others may disagree
            wouldn't be against Coufal instead of Creswell

          Is there anyone eyeing Kane to Werner? Or am I convincing myself that Werner is a decent option?

          1. wulfranian

            He is a great pick imo if you get him now.From next gw i think Vardy might a better pick.Vardy/Dcl/Werner are the best 3 forwards atm but too much money up front.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              was considering vardy/dcl/jesus but as you said there are better value forwards

            Would prefer Vardy to Werner right now.

          Looks like I'm sticking with this 0ft 1.5itb, but so many players I want on wc going up 🙁

          McCarthy
          Chillwell James Coufal
          Salah Bruno Son Grealish Bowen
          Werner DCL

          Nyland KWP Brewster Ferguson

          TAA out for a hit? How long do we reckon he's out for?

          Other defs are Chilwell, Lamptey, Saiss, Mitchel, so kinda need to do it to get 3 playing defs.
          Will prob go for Coufal or Verstgaard to free up funds for City attack next GW

          Thoughts anyone?

          Option 1. Committing to WC next GW. (Punts).
          TAA + Son + Jimenez -> Maguire + Fernandes (c) + Richarlison (-4).

          Option 2. Keep an open mind about WC- not the best fixtures in GW 9.
          TAA + Son + Jimenez -> Cancelo + Fernandes (c) + Watkins (-4).
          KDB + Grealish in the week after for a further -4 probably.

          McCarthy.
          TAA, Chilwell, Mitchell.
          Son, Salah, Barkley, Podence.
          Kane, DCL, Jimenez.
          Button, Ayling, Justin, Bissouma.
          2fts, 1.8m ITB.
