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.

      Maybe C but I don’t really like any of them. Can you afford Werner?

  4. Nice to Finally Michu

    2 months, 2 days ago

    Che Adams the ultimate get out of jail free card for all of my bad FPL decisions this season

    Can't believe he isn't just some meme player I have and that every time I see him he passes the eye test for me. Great in link up and his finishing and positioning are improving by the week. Totally proved me wrong when I was worried he wouldn't be able to play as well without Ings to play off of. Impressive player.

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

      Extremely low ownership too. He gains me more rank by scoring 7 points than DCL does for scoring 13.

  5. Stupendous
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Rodriguez to Salah for free?

    Might miss out by .1 if I dont do it now!

    1. Nice to Finally Michu
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Not for me, its worth the wait and Hamez has 2 good fixtures still

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

        Could do Zaha to Salah with a hit

        1. Nice to Finally Michu
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Still worth waiting until after UCL imo

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

            Injuries? Not bothered if Mo plays or not otherwise.

            Hames continues to disappoint

            Assisting the assister. I have DCL to cover of course.

            1. Nice to Finally Michu
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Your team and I respect your decision making process
              I think Hamez is still a dangerous asset and he has two good fixtures in a row that I wouldn't sell for

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

                I disagree tbh.

                Looks tired and Leeds will kick the s. H. I. T out of him.

                I have had him all season so far and I'm a bit bored.

                I think Zaha and Grealish have better fixtures and offer higher upside tbh.

                Thanks for sticking with me here though pal! Respect the help.

          2. Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            In fact I might even prefer Digne over Rodriguez.

    2. Make United Great Again

      Yes

    3. tempest

      I would

    4. michaelington
      • 10 Years

      Yes, easy decision

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

        3 to1 in favour so far!

  6. 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

  7. tempest

    Ziyech +Jimmy -> Jota + Aguero?

    Seems too good to be true...

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

      For someone

    2. Nice to Finally Michu
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Wouldn't do Ziyech to Jota

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

        Yup, clearly a downgrade but Jimmy to Aguero is a bigger upgrade?

        1. Nice to Finally Michu
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          I think you can get away with no Aguero this weekend, I think Jesus won't be so quick to lose his spot and so soon from injury I definitely dont see Kun getting 60 minutes. Worth waiting for FUL imo. Arsenal isn't a terrible fixture thought obviously not ideal. I'd rather Jimenez > Vardy at this moment

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

          Not until Aguero is fit and scoring goals. Currently doesn't justify his price.

    3. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Aguero fitness an issue - Not sure he's ready to start.

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

      Jota not nailed and Aguero not guaranteed to start, if he does start he'll likely get about 60 minutes before Pep subs him. Seems like an absolutely terrible transfer actually

  8. the dom 1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Asked this earlier but wondering if i should do the Kane > Vardy move now before the price rise in just over an hour?

    Yes or No?

    Other move was Podence > Jota but that could wait until later thius week.

    Thoughts?

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

      Kane is unplayable at the moment. I’m not moving him anywhere

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

        This!

      2. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Unplayable vs City but came out with 4 points. Surely if you're captaining Vardy vs Fulham, it's an easy choice.

        1. the dom 1
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Yep I had Kane captain v City so backfired a little. I have some funds tied up with him but think Vardy v Fulham would be a great shout goals from Vardy.

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

      I did it but i could cost

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

        It could backfire easily*

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

      Whilst it’s tempting I would wait if you can for midweek games unless you’re going to be priced out

      1. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        When do Spurs play mid week?

        If I did both moves now i would have 1.0 left ITB

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

          Thursday home to Ludogrets. They’re bottom so probably 2nd string side

      Get both.

        Thats the plan Greenred. 🙂

      Vardy very unlikely to start in europa game so don't see why not

      1. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Think I might wait now until mid week games are done just in case of injuries etc...

  9. Trophé Mourinho

    • 10 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Is it still worth doing Son to Kdb if you’re not going to captain him this week?
    Same goes for Vardy, if you bring him in is he no brainer captain with no midweek game?
    Tempted to get both but can obviously only captain one

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

      No. Don't sell Son for anyone. City not playing well, KDB not hitting the heights yet but sell someone else if you get him.

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

        Did Salah to Bruno c this week and will look to swap back for gw12
        Can’t get city attack unless I move spurs player.
        Own Foden but that doesn’t count
        Could just do Jimi to Vardy this week but that means def selling spurs later to fund moves

    2. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      No, keep Son

    3. FC Hakkebøf

      Leicester has a midweek game?

        Re-read my post ha
        No midweek game

        1. FC Hakkebøf
          • 3 Years

          They do have a midweek game... Europa League..

      Keep Son

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

    Think spurs v Chelsea is going to be a major letdown for attacking options. Can see 0-0 and people saying they should’ve sold at least one of Son Kane

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

      I got that feeling to. Lampard will likely fight boring with boring.

    2. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      1 or 2 nil Spurs with returns for both them.

    3. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      its possibly a draw but it wont be 0-0, more like 2-2. But I think Spurs win so 3-2 to Spurs
      This game will be a great game imo

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

        How on earth do you reach that conclusion? Spurs had 2 chances, 2 goals vs City.

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

          Firstly it's a London derby. Secondly it's Mourinho v Chelsea.

          Last few matchups and current defensive strength goes out the window for me.

          It's 2020!

          lol there you are, the guy telling me Spurs had no chance of beating City. So this week its Spurs have no chance beating Chelsea??

          Shall I dig the thread? xD

            • 8 Years

            I don't remember me saying Spurs couldn't beat City. I would argue the opposite.

          I don't think I will, I'll gamble on KDB over Son over the next 6 weeks. With home games against Burnley, Fulham, West Brom and Newcastle in that period

            So tempted myself
            Look at the next 4 for spurs, just can’t see many goals for Son
            If Kdb/city score a few this weekend there will be mass spurs exit the following week imo

          agreed

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

    A) Kane to Vardy (C) -4
    B) No.

    If B. Who would you Captain?

    1) DCL
    2) KDB

    1. tafrère
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B2 but both decisions it's really tough.

  13. davies

    Kane > Vardy (c) for free

    Yay or nay?

    1. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Yes

    2. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I have Kane, Jimenez and DCL so will sell Jimenez to Vardy. I still hold Kane and Son for gw 10.

      1. tafrère
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Same except it's Wilson instead of Jimmy.

    3. The Littlest Robbo

      Yup

    On scale of 1 (awful) and 10 ( great) how would you rate this team going forward from this week ? And what one move would improve rating?

    Martinez
    Robertson Chilwell Cancelo
    Bruno KDB Son Grealish Jota
    Kane DCL

    Forster Brewster Mitchell Lamptey

    1. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      7,5 to 8

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      8/10

      7.
      Bench is risky for this GW.

    4. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      You seem to have gone without Vardy against Fulham

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

        Kane to Vardy is in my mind- is it move you would make? Just not sure Vardy better option than Kane over next few weeks

        1. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          I've got both. Tough decision for you. Have to take a longer term view, leaning towards Vardy.

    I’m a big advocate of doing transfers as late as possible but have Zaha + Saiss and was fact cash to get Dias/Cancelo + Sterling -4. Do them now or wait until Friday and possible miss out on a city DEF but maybe get KDB instead.

    1. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Exact cash*

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Now

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

      Just do the Cancelo transfer now. Sterling might drop

  17. Gabbiadini
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    worth waiting at all to do Zaha to Grealish they don't look like they are rising today but I may be wrong?

    1. EternalRot
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      i think you are good for tonight

  18. Trophé Mourinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Rate my team out of 10 please, 1 terrible, 10 great.

    Fabianski
    Chilwell - James - KWP
    Son - Grealish - Jota - Salah
    Kane - Werner - DCL
    (Nyland, Lamptey, Ferguson, Bissouma)

    Lamptey normally starts for me

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Needs Ali, he's going to score well this w/e apparently.

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Lol, I am wild, dont put it past me
        I wont ofc, but I do think he starts. He loves playing Chelsea, Jose knows that. If Alli is gonna prove himself and be part of this team, its this game.
        Jose would legit say "you start vs Chelsea, and you have to be MOTM".

        Alli will probably get like 25mins mid week as a warm up

      where did you see that?

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

      So weird considering he's the cheapest way into a solid Burnley defence. Basically guarantees you a CS when against bottom 10 clubs.

  20. EternalRot
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Looking to do:

    Mane ---> KDB
    Werner ---> Vardy

    Is Vardy likely to rise tonight?!

    1. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I'm not sure about those moves tbh. Think both the players you're taking will do well

  21. meechamspowders
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Is zaha & Watkins > jota/grealish & vardy a decent move? I think being able to afford to keep kane and get in vardy for this week is a nice option to have

  22. Stupendous
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Sorry! Need this before Rodriguez drops!

    One last time...

    Rodriguez to Salah for free???

    Y or N!

    1. EternalRot
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I would say no based on the fixtures. Everton have 2 solid ones in next 2, Liverpool have 1. That's my two cents.

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

        Liverpool will batter Wolves. They have Brighton and Fulham around that!

        I'd argue Pool have better fixtures!

    2. Hadebayor Mum
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I have!

    3. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yeah do it

    4. ALI_G
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I'd do it

      everyone said keep JRod for the Fulham game and he was awful. Just isn't in form

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

        I said it and did it! I want off the bus!

      2. Mile Plankton
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        He wasn't awfull. He was great in first half. Amazing. He was unlucky not to get at least a goal.
        Then he got tired and the entire Everton team basicaly didnt show up for the second half.

    5. De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I would

    6. Mile Plankton
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      No. To early to make transfers. Wait for the midweek games to end.

    7. POTATO

    Been looking at City and KDB record against Burnley. Mostly easy wins in last few years.

    However,
    KDB didn't start in 2 out of last 4 City's PL matches against Burnley, he missed one when he was injured and he started in one and played 80 minutes.
    Last two home games were 5:0 wins, KDB didn't start in those, he was subbed on for about 30 minutes.

    KDB actualy has a pretty poor record against Burnley.
    One assist in seven PL games (twice played full 90 minutes, twice started and subbed off late, 3 times subbed on)
    If we include cup games, 3 matches, 1 goal and 1 assist (both in the same game, 5:0 win).

    So basicaly, he had one good game in 10 appearances against Burnley.

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

      It's 2020. Throw all that out

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

      Stats can be whatever you want them to be

      Basically banking on city finally scoring 2-3 goals and if that happens surely Kdb heavily involved.
      One way is to just wait as week and jump on for Fulham if needed
      Personally I just can’t see high fantasy points for spurs v Chelsea and wouldn’t be surprised 0-0

    Kane & Jrod > Vardy & KDB for -4? Already have DCL and Son.

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

      You must have a lot in the bank.but seams a sound move

        3.3 ITB, had been planning on Son > KDB for this weekend but thinking now that Vardy & Son will do better over next 4 than Kane & Jrod.

    2. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Debating the same moves, but think I'll just do Kane to Vardy (c) and keep Son this week. If City look better, can do Son -> KdB next week for free for the Fulham game

      1. Pépé Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Oh so sorry misread. In that case yeah as JRod just doesn't seem to be doing it FPL wise atm

  26. HODGE
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    If mane has been bought in by more than he's been sold this week why is he falling on fpl stats?

    1. The Dead Parrots
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Overall he is showing as rising but red arrows indicate recent trend I guess, for which he is dropping eg net drop in transfers today.

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

        That makes sense thanks

    • 2 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    James on 94.9% to rise on fplstats. If he does rise I am priced out of my Lamptey to James move. Should I just pull the trigger now or wait? Got 3 players playing in CL tomorrow, 4 including him so would love to wait if possible.

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

      Good transfer in, but do you really need to get rid of Lampty?

      1. The Dead Parrots
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Just wildcarded last week so nothing else to focus on. Also want James as 3rd playing defender over Lamptey long term.

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

          If James is a third defender I'm guessing you have Chilwell and Cancello as Well? In which case I would make the move, cause your pretty much play them every week and no need for Lampty
