Antonio earns back-to-back starts for first time since Gameweek 6

Michail Antonio (£6.3m) has started back-to-back Premier League games for the first time since Gameweek 6.

The West Ham forward was named in the line-up to face West Bromwich Albion in Double Gameweek 19 following his recent injury comeback.

Antonio is already on nine points for the round after scoring and taking home all three bonus in Saturday’s win over Burnley.

His 9.1% ownership will be hoping for more returns against the Baggies tonight, who have given up 11 goals in their last three matches – an average of 3.7 per game.

Antonio is joined in the West Ham team by the usual Fantasy Premier League suspects which include Tomas Soucek (£5.3m), Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m) and Aaron Cresswell (£5.4m) while Craig Dawson (£4.5m) keeps Fabian Balbuena (£4.4m) on the bench again.

The big news in West Brom’s camp sees Sam Johnstone (£4.5m) recalled after he missed the win at Wolves following a period of self-isolation.

The Baggies shot-stopper was a key element of many a Double Gameweek 19 Bench Boost squad, so his return is a welcome one for his 2.9% ownership.

Meanwhile, Matheus Pereira (£5.6m) starts for the third Premier League match in a row, having posted a second double-digit haul of the campaign on Saturday.

Robert Snodgrass (£5.7m) is absent from the squad tonight because of an agreement made with West Ham when the player was sold earlier this month.

    If I had to lose the Johnstone CS (as was likely to happen anyway TBA), at least Coufal was involved and Antonio wasn't.

        Should have been brave as I pondered here not once but twice and TCed Coufal instead of BBing 😀

          Funny, but historically inaccurate as Vlad the Impaler was born in what is now Romania, whereas Coufal is from Czechia.

          Coufal was lagging a lot behind Cresswell and Ogbonna

              FPL hope can blind you sometimes 😀

              Plus Bowen scored with his chest so it could have been Soucek while sitting on his knees why not 😉
