Haller impresses for West Ham as recovering Antonio waits in the wings

Sheff Utd 0-1 West Ham

  • Goals: Sebastien Haller (£6.1m)
  • Assists: Pablo Fornals (£6.4m)
  • Bonus Points: Haller x3, Lukasz Fabianski x2 (£5.0m), Aaron Cresswell x1 (£5.1m), Arthur Masuaku x1 (£4.5m)

A sweet strike from Sebastien Haller (£6.1m) secured a second-straight win for West Ham as Sheffield United’s start to the season remained on the wrong side of hellish.

The striker blasted home from the edge of the area after the ball fell to him courtesy of a Pablo Fornals (£6.4m) ricochet, consigning the Blades to a fourth consecutive defeat their enterprise probably did not merit.

Chris Wilder’s side might have been out-shot 15-9 by the visitors, but they forced Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m) into five saves and would have had at least a point from the encounter had Oli McBurnie (£5.7m) not hit the woodwork when put clean through.

That lack of ruthlessness is the reason why United have managed only four goals from nine winless matches this season, while their zero clean sheets adds another layer to the Fantasy disinterest in their players at present.

Haller of Fame

The same cannot be said of the Hammers.

Having survived and thrived during a brutal opening run of fixtures, their assets have started on a kinder schedule by winning 1-0 win for two Gameweeks in a row.

Even a hamstring injury to key striker Michail Antonio (£62m) has not disrupted David Moyes’ men too badly, with stand-in Haller putting in a fine shift at Bramall Lane.

West Ham’s replacement striker is owned by just 0.3% in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) and that figure is unlikely to rise on the back of one, albeit excellent, performance.

Moyes was happy to praise Haller post-match.

“He came back from international duty and I could sense in the two days we had back training that he had a spring in his step. His confidence seemed up and we’re really pleased with that. He’s showing signs now, and like today’s goal, we want him to get more goals and to be more involved in the build up play and stronger in some situations.” – David Moyes

But the manager’s recent update on Antonio’s fitness suggests there will soon be competition for the lone striker role and it’s a contest the Englishman will probably win based on his form this calendar year.

“Michail is back training. He’s getting much closer (to full fitness) that’s for sure. He’s a really important player to the team and how we play. If we can get him back, good, but I don’t want to say if we can because at the moment we’re not quite sure if he’s ready yet.” – David Moyes

Gameweek 10’s visit of Aston Villa might be too soon for an Antonio start, but a return to the match-day squad looks ever likelier. Yet another week where many Fantasy eyes will be on Moyes’ pre-match press conference.

Midfield Mayhem

Fortunately for Fantasy managers looking for differentials, investment in West Ham players remains low. Defender Aaron Cresswell (£5.1m) is by far and away the most popular pick with 9.3% ownership.

But the side’s midfielders continue to offer attacking potential for relatively low prices.

As explained in more detail in the Premium Members analysis above, Bowen carries a clear offensive threat, but at present it is Fornals who leads the midfield pack with 48 points and a goal and an assist from his last three starts.

The budget appeal of Tomas Soucek (£4.9m) has made him the most-owned of the Hammers’ middle men and his 3.0% following should have seen him add to Gameweek 8’s first goal of the season, only for him to blow a superb chance in the first half on Sunday when set up by Haller’s astute header.

Few Shall Pass

It would not be a Moyes team without some of his focus being on the backline.

“We’re not going to do well enough if we don’t defend well enough, and we’ve started to pick up a few clean sheets, so long may that continue.” – David Moyes

West Ham are currently joint-top for clean sheets this season, with four, and only two teams have conceded fewer goals than the 10 they’ve shipped thus far.

Vladimir Coufal (£4.6m) was the first to work Sheffield keeper Aaron Ramsdale (£4.8m) on Sunday and he also chipped in with three chances created.

It was Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) who brought in bonus to go with their clean sheet points, however.

Cresswell is currently the only West Ham player in the top 30 for Gameweek 10 transfers-in, putting him on course for a seventh straight rise in ownership.

But West Ham’s immediate schedule is, arguably, not quite as attractive as it might seem at first glance.

Their next two home opponents, Villa and then Manchester United, have performed better on the road, and the three fixtures that follow (Leeds (away), Crystal Palace (home), Chelsea (away)) are likely to be tight and tough affairs.

Picking clean sheet and attacking returns out of that lot looks tricky, although the relatively low prices of West Ham assets should still tempt many.

Wilder’s Woes

The temptation regarding Sheffield United players is to bin them off – if you haven’t done so already, that is.

Next Saturday’s trip to West Brom already looks like a must-win game for a team suffering badly from the absence of key players, with the long-term injury to Jack O’Connell (£4.8m) a particular issue for a defence that was so resolute last season.

Only Rhian Brewster (£4.5m and 6.1%) has significant ownership levels, but he’s struggling to even hold down a regular starting berth, which makes his cheap and cheerless status a perfect metaphor for the team as a whole.

Wilder is not about to throw in the towel.

“There’s a long way to go. Without being disrespectful to some of the places this football club has had to go, it is no good taking a backwards step and feeling sorry for yourself.” – Chris Wilder

But without being disrespectful to his players, Fantasy managers are unlikely to be joining them on their journey any time soon.

Sheffield United (5-3-2): Ramsdale; Baldock, Egan, Ampadu (Robinson 62), Basham (Lundstram 76), Lowe; Berge, Norwood (Brewster 65), Fleck; McBurnie, McGoldrick.

West Ham (3-4-2-1): Fabianski; Cresswell, Balbuena, Ogbonna; Coufal, Rice, Soucek, Masuaku; Bowen (Noble 90+2), Fornals (Lanzini 76); Haller.

          C. KDB

        • Ibralicious

          A, B, C at the moment, unless KDB and City can show sparks of their older self

        • BeWater
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Fantasy football hub reckons:

            1. Salah 38.5 points
            2. KDB 36
            3. Bruno 28.7

            1. GreennRed
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Not on current form. Hard to predict how fit and firing Salah will be after the virus.

              1. Bushwhacker
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 2 days ago

                He was asymptomatic . . . which largely means no effects at all.

                1. GreennRed

                  2 months, 2 days ago

                  It means no affects. But he'll lose some sharpness not doing team training and possibly losing S&C.

          • Bushwhacker
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 2 days ago

            CBA

            United have been awful without excuse, City have fixtures and Aguero and Sterling back for KDB.

        • wulfranian
          • 4 Years

          Which is the best way to get in Kdb?
          McCarthy
          Coufal/James/Pva
          Son/Ziyech/Rashford/Grealish
          Kane/Dcl/Werner

          Steer/Targett/McCarthy/Douglas

              About of those but I’m reluctant re. hits between premiums.

            • wulfranian
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              cheers all.The truth is that Kane->Vardy is chasing points but Fulham are so bad and he could easily score a hatty.

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

            How's this looking?

            Mendy, Button
            Chilwell, Cancelo, Coufal, Targett, Justin
            KDB, Bruno, Ziyech, James, Grealish
            DCL, Vardy, Brewster

            1. Ibralicious
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Looks good besides the lack of Spurs coverage. Form over fixtures?

            2. Don Kloppeone
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Is that a WC? Looks nice but of course Kane/ Son could still punish

          3. Ibralicious
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Martinez
            Robbo - Chilwell - Coufal
            Bruno (C) - Son - Grealish - Zaha
            Kane - DCL - Bamford
            (Forster) - (Dallas - Bissouma - Mitchell)
            4.0 ITB - 1 FT

            Pick one please:
            A) Zaha -> Jota
            B) Zaha + Robbo -> Salah + Cancelo (-4)
            C) Zaha + Robbo -> Salah + Bellerin/Fofana (saves £ for Bruno -> KDB later)

          4. Marc Jobling
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Making early transfers isn't advised right now but I really need Vardy before he rises.... risk buying him tonight?

            1. Don Kloppeone
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              You’d have no alternative if you lose that 0.1? We have learnt only too often already this season that early moves aren’t really paying off because of injuries/ covid/ etc etc

            2. Original Pirate Material
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              If you are price locked then do it.

            3. Rupert The Horse
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Tough to be honest. So many of your players will be playing this week in Europe and Covid absolutely rife at the moment. It’s taking out so many highly owned players.

            4. BenDavies
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              I wouldn't. He was hobbling a bit after yesterday's game and has a Europa league fixture this Thursday. So risky to transfer out a fit , in form Kane for Vardy before Friday. I am planning on making the transfer on Friday myself barring any injury but wouldn't be making it now.

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

                Surely they’ll just rest him Thursday if necessary - it’s not like it’s the CL

            Apologies in advance for the long post!

            I have the same dilemma as majority of people on here .... needing to make some big decisions on the premium assets... I need to pick 1 from Group A and 2 from Group B below.... have added my brief assessment

            GROUP A:
            * Kane (che, ARS, cry, liv) - Has been in amazing form but clearly fixtures are not great and he is playing a lot deeper (more assists/ assisting the assister rather than goals?)
            * Vardy (FUL, shu, BHA, EVE) - Consistently good form - high xG but less overall xGI. Fixtures v good

            GROUP B:
            * Salah (bha, WOL, ful, TOT) - Will (hopefully) be just back in time - questions over peak fitness. Decent fixtures. Blistering form pre-Covid
            * KDB (BUR, FUL, mun, WBA) - Consistently good chance creation combined with excellent fixtures - unavoidable? We know the potential
            * Son (che, ARS, cry, liv) - Good form and positioning, seems relatively fixture proof although fixtures are bad - up against the better defences
            * Bruno (sou, whu, MCI, shu) - Consistently grinding out points and the next 3 away matches (usually good for Bruno) are easier fixtures. Still needs pens.....

            My front 8 is currently:

            Bruno, Son, Ziyech, Grealish (Stephens)
            Kane, DCL, Bamford

            With only 1FT, I don't fancy taking hits for these kinds of premium switch decisions so need to be careful! Initial thoughts are to hold off from Salah this week and either do Kane > Vardy or Bruno > KDB. Cresswell > Cancelo also tempting but surely not for a hit...

            Thoughts?
            Cheers

                  You asked for 1 choice from Group A and 2 from Group B which this does. I agree with these choices.

                    Ohhh I’m clearly more tired than I realised! 😆

                    I guess the second part I missed was which to do this week!

            What to do this week? 1 FT and 3.1 ITB

            Martinez
            Robbo Chilwell Cresswell
            Bruno Son Grealish Zaha*
            Kane DCL Bamford

            Zaha is the obvious issue but not sure who to bring in... or whether to take a hit and make any further moves

            1. Ibralicious
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              We have almost exactly the same teams. I think I'll shift Zaha to Jota while I plan a move to bring Salah in by GW 12

            Hi guys just need some advice

            My team is:

            Martinez Martin

            Chillwell, Zouma, Justin, Mitchell Bernado

            Fernandes Son Sterling (c) Grealish Bissouma

            Kane Wilson DCL

            1.5 itb 2ft

            1. Kane to Vardy for free and captain him
            2. Kane to Vardy and Mitchell to Dias for free and bench Zouma as they play spurs)
            3. Kane to Vardy, Zouma to James to fund Son to kdb for -4
            4. Other

            1. Ibralicious
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              1 is good in theory if you plan to captain him. Don't bother with the -4, not worth it

            2. FC Hakkebøf
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Just do Kane to Vardy and reassess. You want Salah in gw12 and that will require some transfers

          8. Vazza
              2 months, 2 days ago

              James Rodriguez to Diogo Jota?

              A. Yes
              B. No
              .

                  Just for next week, I'd say Vardy.

                • 6 Years
                2 months, 2 days ago

                KDB or Salah the priority this week? Have enough ITB to do it for free (selling Ziyech or Son...which I’m also unsure about).

                1. BenDavies
                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 2 days ago

                  Until KDB gets back to his best, Salah.

                  1. Bushwhacker
                    • 1 Year
                    2 months, 2 days ago

                    KDB has been playing astoundingly ; it's the team around him that's struggled. With Sterling and Aguero fit . . .I'd wait on Salah until GW 12

              3. La Roja
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 2 days ago

                What to do here chaps?

                Martinez
                Justin Robbo Coufal

                          Mate, you have just advised me to not bring in Jota and you are intending to bring in Walcott. Hahahaha!!!!!

                            Unfortunately I do not have enough cash to bring Jota in for option C

                      Anyone else going with both Salah and Mané?

                      I have Mané already, and planning on doing Zaha to Salah for free.

                        As I have Robbo in my team I am very wary on picking a 3rd option. Might want TAA later on. Jota might also be great value if he appears to be nailed over the next two.

                      Will be priced out of doing Son to Sterling next week if I don't do Kane to Vardy now. What a headache

                          Think it's a no-brainer if you plan to captain Vardy vs Fulham.

                        I sold him and got Vardy. Good luck to us

                          You always do early transfers. Will burn you some day. My guess is that you wouldn't be priced out but just want to catch the prise rise. Am I correct?

                            Yes unfortunately, hope it will give me some decent extra money on next wc

                              Actually it burned me this gw sold Son and Reguilon to Targett and Bruno, got also KDB for Salah with a -8 hit it costed me 22 points this gw. Got 66(-8) not bad but really gutted with transfer mistakes.

                        Yeah, I went early due to next week’s transfer plans too. I don’t often make such early transfers, but I’m sure it will be fine this week

                      Would you move out any of Kane Son or Bruno?

                        Yes. I would do one of those moves and Captain Salah/Vardy. Not sure which lol. Maybe Kane To Vardy now. Then get Salah in come gameweek 12

                              A) Kane > Vardy (and possibly captain)
                              B) Podence, Kane > Jota, Vardy (-4). Means sticking with a 352 rather than playing Justin (good fix) in a 442
                              C) Save

                              Can afford a couple of price changes but would likely have to make moves on Wednesday

                              Anyone considering DCL as captain this week ?

                                I am considering it, returns in 8/9 games so far.

                                depends who ur other options are

                                There are quite a few options this week

                                he's my captain at the moment, he seems the safest bet out of everyone in my team for this week

                              Yes or no?
                              Have Lamptey so only have Chilwell and James as playing def for gw 10.

                                  Likely as Saiss maybe fall and Vardy maybe rise in price

                                    Not worried about midweek games? Vardy was limbing after the Liverpool game

                                      Ok, might have to wait then. Thank you for the information.

                                        No problem. I did Saiss to Cancelo to avoid losing SV. Not to fuzzed about purchase priced as I am likely not keeping Vardy for that long anyway.

                              If it's confirmed Salah will be back v Brighton will you bring him in or wait until Game week 12?

                                No.

                                Would require a -8 for me. So I am likely waiting.

                                I see betting firms have Tottenham as more favourites to win the league than Chelsea. I think this is wrong and Chelsea have a much better chance(I still don't trust tottenham to roll over the lesser teams). Anyone here think Tottenham will finish higher than Chelsea?

                                1. FC Hakkebøf
                                  • 3 Years
                                  2 months, 2 days ago

                                  They have a far more experienced manager. But Chelsea have a better squad. Close call imo. Leaning towards Chelsea though.

                                2. GreennRed
                                  • 9 Years
                                  2 months, 2 days ago

                                  Yes. A lot of PL experience in Spurs squad with a savvy experienced former PL winning manager. A lot of PL inexperience in a Chelsea squad with an inexperienced manager.

                                    Thanks both. I guess Tottenham won't have the champions league distraction as well.

                                    I'm still not convinced Lampard is the man to take that incredibly talented squad to the next level... Spurs will finish higher imo.

                                      Thanks. Interesting that Mourinho experience over Lampards seems to be viewed as such a big factor.

                                    I already have Jota (since GW6) and Grealish, Son & Fernandes.

                                    Not sure if Ferran Torres looks like a good option with the run of fixtures ahead.

                                      You got all the good options in that pricebracket. You prolly need to downgrade a forward

                                        Thanks, much appreciated! Will have to mull this option over as I’ve got DCL, Kane & Brewster.

                                    Plan is Kane to Vardy with 1FT. Means no Salah for roughly 2 more weeks but plan to get him in for either vardy or son in gw12
