Antonio returns for West Ham as Hourihane replaces Barkley in Villa midfield

Michail Antonio (£6.2m) makes a much-anticipated return to the West Ham as they host Aston Villa in Gameweek 10.

The Fantasy Premier League forward makes his first start since Gameweek 6, tasked with leading the Hammers’ line on Monday night.

Unsurprisingly, Sebastien Haller (£6.1m), who scored just once in Antonio’s absence, drops to the bench while Pablo Fornals (£6.5m) and Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m) staff the flanks.

David Moyes retains faith with West Ham’s three-man defence, which has kept clean sheets against Fulham and Sheffield United.

That means Aaron Cresswell (£5.2m) remains on the left-hand side of a centre-back trio with Angelo Ogbonna (£4.9m) and Fabian Balbuena (£4.4m) while Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) and Vladimir Coufal (£4.6m) provide the width from wing-back roles.

Aston Villa’s starting XI is mostly as it should be, the only change an enforced one, owing to Ross Barkley‘s (£5.9m) injury last time.

Bertrand Traoré (£5.9m) came on for the former Everton man in Gameweek 9 but it is Conor Hourihane (£6.0m) who has been given the go-ahead from the start on Monday night.

West Ham United XI (3-4-3): Fabianski; Cresswell, Ogbonna, Balbuena; Masuaku, Soucek, Rice, Coufal; Fornals, Antonio, Bowen.

Aston Villa XI (4-3-3): Martínez; Targett, Mings, Konsa, Cash; Hourihane, D Luiz, McGinn; Grealish, Watkins, Trézéguet.

    • Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Do Villa EVER score goals that aren't lucky deflections?

      1. HuttonDressedasLahm
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Most of the 7 v Liverpool

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Nope.

    • Niho992
      • 2 Years

      Does a Grealish goal mean anything unless one has captained him?

      Everyone and their pet hamster have him.

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        They really don't

      2. Over Midwicket
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Definitely lower than 100% EO..

      3. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        63% EO says otherwise

      4. Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        only 50% eo

      5. dando89
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Few people in my money leagues don't have him so it's good for me!

    • Party time
      • 2 Years

      Dammit

    • Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years

      Who assisted Grealish?

      1. Over Midwicket
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Who cares

      2. Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        cash

      3. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 27 days ago

        The defender

    • Hryszko
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I’m still selling Grealish, Grealish > Bruno...

      Who would you rather own?

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Bruno

      2. Londongeezaa
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Both

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Keep Grealish. You'll find another way to get Bruno. Play 5 in midfield if you have to.

        1. Hryszko
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          No way for me to afford Bruno without selling either Kane or Grealish?

      4. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Surely you have a way to get both. They're looking like season keepers.

    • shiraz
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Nice goal from grealish, he need to be selfish sometime

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 27 days ago

          A lucky deflection from a shot that would be saved is a "nice goal"?

      • DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Every serious player owns Grealish anyway.

        1. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Lol

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        I really don’t like Grealish - his face, his hair, his demeanour ...

        1. HuttonDressedasLahm
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          I like his points though

        2. Bobby Digital
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Ditto...

        3. IRBOX ⚽
          • 3 Years

          Non owner spotted

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            yip, I just think he is a horrible human being, wouldn’t cross the road to wee on him if he was on fire ...

          He and Lamela remain "never own" because I hate cheats. Sadly unlike Lamela with Grealish it costs points . . .

      • LǝgleSs e|even
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Ohh Jack ,
        I want to draw you like one of my French girls

      • Super Saints
        • 4 Years

        Where is old man? Grealish captain!

      • JONALDINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Grealish is a nailed Jota

      • Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        So I could have captained any of KDB, Bruno, Jota or Grealish to outscore Vardy vs Fulham

      • S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Was set to sell Grealish for Salah in gw12. Might sell Son instead

        1. Salarrivederci
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          You might change your mind after next GW.
          Son against Arsenal could be tasty

      • Chucky
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Both CS wiped out.. Lovely...
