Antonio proving West Ham’s chief FPL threat as Dawson bolsters defensive options

West Ham 1-0 Burnley

  • Goals: Michail Antonio (£6.3m)
  • Assists: Pablo Fornals (£6.1m)
  • Bonus points: Antonio x3, Aaron Cresswell x2 (£5.4m), Fornals x2

YOU’RE SO FINE

Michail Antonio (£6.3m) got West Ham’s part in Double Gameweek 19 off to the best possible start as he scored the only goal of a 1-0 win over Burnley.

The Fantasy Premier League forward was signed by 500,000+ managers in the build-up to the weekend’s action and he made an immediate impact.

The sale of Sebastien Haller (£6.1m) to Ajax had all but implied Antonio was fit and ready to lead the Hammers’ line again and his performance against Burnley certainly suggested that was true.

Not only did the striker find the net nine minutes into his first start since Gameweek 10, but he also lasted 90 minutes for only the third Premier League match in 2020/21.

Provided that can continue, Antonio can go on to become West Ham’s greatest threat for their appealing upcoming schedule, rather than Tomas Soucek (£5.3m) who did not muster an effort on goal on Saturday afternoon.

By contrast, Antonio has registered a shot every 30.2 minutes this season, the best of any Hammers asset ahead of meetings with Crystal Palace (away), Liverpool (home), Aston Villa (away), Fulham (away) and Sheffield United (home) – all after their second Double Gameweek 19 match at home to West Bromwich Albion, of course.

Crucially, as things stand, the direct competition for Antonio’s place amounts to none – until David Moyes can find a new striker.

Ademipo Odubeko was an unused substitute against Burnley but the West Ham manager has been unequivocal in his desire for reinforcements in this area.

“I’d like some pace and someone who can run in behind. Because Micky gives us that just now, and if we don’t have him through injury or have to rest him at any time, we would like that type.” – David Moyes

SCORES ON THE DAWS

West Ham’s defence is also looking ripe for investment ahead of those aforementioned appealing fixtures as they recorded a third successive Premier League clean sheet against Burnley.

That is something the Hammers have not achieved since September 2019, their recent improvements in this area helped by Craig Dawson (£4.5m).

The centre-back is yet to concede a single league goal this season, starting and contributing to a shutout in every match since Gameweek 16 and was also present for a clean sheet in the FA Cup win over Stockport County.

“(Dawson) has played four games and kept four clean sheets. If you’re a centre-half and you come into a team it’s like being a striker and having four games with four goals. He should be really pleased with his performance. He’s had to be patient. We’ve got competition for places like Issa Diop waiting to come in and Aaron Cresswell has played as a third centre-back for us as well. The competition is there. They’re setting the standards now. Sometimes you do have to win 1-0 in these games.” – David Moyes

It would appear that Dawson has nailed down his place in the West Ham back-four now, especially with Issa Diop (£4.3m) an unused substitute against Burnley and Fabian Balbuena (£4.4m) self-isolating.

WHUBHA

Whether or not Dawson can offer Fantasy value of his own rather than boosting his colleagues remains to be seen.

The centre-back was a prolific penalty box presence for Watford during Project Restart but is yet to register an effort on goal for West Ham.

Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m) and Aaron Cresswell (£5.4m) have nine attacking returns between them this season so they look the more likely to get returns at the other end of the pitch.

That said, the latter was spared an own goal only by the offside flag on Saturday afternoon and the pair combined for just one key pass.

And those without West Ham defensive coverage, especially for upcoming meetings with Crystal Palace (Gameweek 20), Fulham (Gameweek 23) and Sheffield United (Gameweek 24) could do worse than selecting Dawson for his attractive price.

BOTTLE OF CLARET

In failing to find the net against West Ham, Burnley recorded a 10th blank of the campaign, solidifying them as clean sheet fodder.

No team has failed to score in that many games this season as they registered their 28th 1-0 defeat in the Premier League, the Clarets’ most common scoreline in the competition.

That is encouraging news for Fantasy managers targetting their upcoming opponents such as Aston Villa, Chelsea and Manchester City between now and Gameweek 22.

West Ham United XI (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Cresswell, Ogbonna, Dawson, Coufal; Rice, Soucek; Fornals, Benrahma (Lanzini 68′), Bowen (Yarmolenko 82′); Antonio.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; Pieters, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; Brady, Westwood, Brownhill, Gudmundsson (McNeil 46′); Wood (Rodriguez 72′), Barnes (Vydra 63′).

        Yep. At least now the monthly rankings take them into accounts, it wasn't the case a few seasons back if I recall correctly.

      What happened to Zouma? Just rotated or has he lost his place? Thanks.

      1. Chandler Bing
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Just rotated I think. Should be back for the second game

        1. Live Lad
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          He has been a stable CB with huge area threat from set-pieces. I do hope he will be back next game. Thought he would be safe and got him instead of Chillwell, who has not been rotated.

          1. Chandler Bing
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Agree totally although re Chilwell, he'll play every game since his backups just aren't good enough offensively or defensively. Him being an insanely fit player further helps the case.

            1. Tambling5
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Emerson has started 4 of Italy's 5 internationals this season, and has played generally very well THIS season. Still not as good a player as Chilwell. With Jorginho also starting for Italy, Rudiger in the frame for Germany, it shows standard of club football now much better than international standard!

      2. Tambling5
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Lampard has the rotavirus

      3. Dthinger
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        I think Lampard doesnt want to play Silva against Vardy's pace, so he's rested Zouma and given Rudiger some game-time, with the expectation that they will play in the second match.

    6. Gun gun

      73 points now. Phew!! Thansk to stones
      And guys do you think with the sterling goal. Pep will start him next game too to boost his confidence or no chance at all?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          probably depends upon which other players you you have in your team ?

            • 2 Years

            Saying nothing after suggesting Antonee Robinson to my son last week as a differential sub.

              There's over a week to decide, and everyone's got another game, so any ejaculating about this seems a bit premature.

                Captained Cancelo, vice-captained Stones here.
                Genius, or stupidity?

                      1 month, 12 days ago

                      On the positive side, very few would have vice-captained him, let alone captain 😉

                    Gosh you must have so hoped he'd not come on as a sub, and have a muscular strain warming up meaning didn't play in next match either!

                    1. Bielsa Murderball
                        1 month, 12 days ago

                        Exactly this. I had a feeling Salah, KDB(although he didn't) and Bruno would blank so i went for the Man City defenders because of the appealing fixtures.

                    2. what\'s my name
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      1 month, 12 days ago

                      I wouldnt call it stupidity rather very very unnecessary risky but sure there were other attacking options you were considering plus Pep did mention possible rest for Cancelo thats why i didnt even have him in my team

                      1. Bielsa Murderball
                          1 month, 12 days ago

                          I felt KDB and Cancelo were equally as nailed for this DGW in isolation because of Pep's comments. So I went Cancelo because of OOP factor.

                            Bad luck. Nothing wrong with the logic imo. He could explode second match and if he plays, I’d think the 6 point cs is highly likely

                          Maybe he was, could be over it now.

                              Yes but there's a 10 day isolation rule?

                                Weeks ago. Medical team are happy with the players so don't expect too many out if any. How they play is another factor.

                          Would you absolute legends that are here this time move Cancelo out for Chilwell?

                          I know he is attacking but now benched and only 1 assist all season when Chilwell has 2G 4A and now playing WOL BUR tot shu NEW

                              Fair enough, sitting with Stones and Cresswell atm not sure I want to get rid. Perhaps need to change formation!

                                It may be time for 4 decent defenders ?

                                City & Utd look tighter at the back, Spurs have some value in defence with attacking potential, Chilwell has attacking threat but a bit expensive now .... then we have the cheap guys that can also be relied upon.

                                Cancelo must haul soon ? 🙂

                                  Surely seems like defences are tighting up (more cs) and the cheap strikers aren't delivering like they used to. Will let him play but would rather have Chilwell than Watkins right now (same price). But there's extra games for villa ofc

                                    I think we have to react quickly to events and be bold in making changes to our team and formation.

                                    I have dropped Salah and spread the cash a bit, but will look at getting him back maybe and can even get a decent team with Salah, Bruno, KDB, Son &
                                    Kane in it.

                                    Kane & Son are a very strong pairing if they both haul and one is your captain, but you need a good 11 to carry them if they blank.

                                    Ederson
                                    Reguilon, AWB, Stones, Coufal
                                    Bruno, KDB, Son
                                    Kane with Wilson & Antonio

                                    Soucek first sub to rotate in for fixtures and anyone who drops in form will be sold

                                      With the effective ownerships of KDB, Son, Kane, Bruno and Salah defense looks like the main differential currently and nailing it could be they key to major rank gains.

                              Possible and i hope so:)) I strongly did consider him for captaincy but bloody EO swayed me towards a big-hitter

                                    John Stones (£5.0m) gets a season-high haul for a defender of 21 points

                                    The most a defender has scored is 27, a record held jointly by Steve Watson (2003) and John Arne Riise (2005)

                                      He still has another match to play within this gameweek, so he might yet still score over 27

                                    Not much you can do about TC, BB sounds like a bad choice.

                                      Yeah was set on BB this week but with cancelation of leeds game it made it harder, still thought mccarthy adams raphinha ayling could get atleast 15 points together

                                        Should have at least 1 doubler there.

                                        A lot of people did, you're not alone, plus the (seemingly great fixture) gave a lot of people a selection headache so seemed natural to BB.

                                    TC Mane was just bad luck.

                                    I'm assuming you had all SGW players in the BB, with 2/3 of them from one team. That's putting too many eggs in one basket imo. There's always a risk of a team having a bad game and if you have multiple players, you will suffer. That's a lesson for people who haven't yet BB this season and for all from next season. SGWers on the bench is still fine but spread the risk.

                                  good plan?

                                    logical

                                    If you still have FH.

                                      Works if you don't have FH too IMO, just that your BB will likely need 3-4 SGW players.

                                        True, would have so much more value with FH though.

                                    I personally would not recommend selling the best midfielder in the world before a run of West Brom, Sheffield United and Burnley.

                                      does it matter how good he is if he gets one assist every week?

                                        1 month, 12 days ago

                                        one assist every week would be 200+ points...

                                          I guess...if he played at least 60 minutes every match, and managed at least 10 clean sheets.

                                    but, also, don't do this.

                                  What are the chances of Leeds vs Southampton being moved to GW23? Seen it mentioned often.

                                    Crellin thinks good chance

                                      70% imo

                                    That would be great and with lots of budget players from both teams as enablers, it would have bench boost written all over it.

                                  These are my favourite DGW defenders as they have always returned when I trusted them.

                                  So, far DGW 19 has been productive for me took me from 65k to 31k.
