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.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

    • 1 Year
    10 months, 22 days ago

  15. Bushwhacker
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 22 days ago

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

    1. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Most of the 7 v Liverpool

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Nope.

  16. Niho992
    • 3 Years

  17. Chucky

      Cheers

  18. Little Red Lacazette

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

    Everyone and their pet hamster have him.

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      They really don't

    2. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Definitely lower than 100% EO..

    3. IRBOX ⚽
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      63% EO says otherwise

    4. Gobigorgohome
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      only 50% eo

    5. dando89
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

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

  19. Party time

      Dammit

    • Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Who assisted Grealish?

      1. Over Midwicket
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Who cares

      2. Gobigorgohome
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        cash

      3. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        The defender

    • Hryszko
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

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

      Who would you rather own?

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Bruno

      2. Londongeezaa
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Both

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

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

        1. Hryszko
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

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

      4. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

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

    • shiraz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nice goal from grealish, he need to be selfish sometime

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

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

    • DAZZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Every serious player owns Grealish anyway.

      1. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Lol

    • Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

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

      1. HuttonDressedasLahm
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        I like his points though

      2. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Ditto...

      3. IRBOX ⚽
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Non owner spotted

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 22 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 ...

      4. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

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

    • LǝgleSs e|even
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

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

    • Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Where is old man? Grealish captain!

    • JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Grealish is a nailed Jota

    • Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 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
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

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

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

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

    • Chucky
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Both CS wiped out.. Lovely...
