Value midfielder Pereira improving in new central role for West Brom

West Ham 2-1 West Brom

  • Goals: Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m), Michail Antonio (£6.3m) | Matheus Pereira (£5.6m)
  • Assists: Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m), Andriy Yarmolenko (£5.5m) | Kamil Grosicki (£5.3m)
  • Bonus points: Antonio x3, M Pereira x2, Coufal x1

THE BAGGIES BAG

Matheus Pereira (£5.6m) is quietly building Fantasy Premier League appeal again as he scored in West Bromwich Albion’s 2-1 defeat to West Ham on Tuesday evening.

It was the midfielder’s third strike in two matches and a fourth attacking return since Sam Allardyce arrived at the Hawthorns in Gameweek 14 – more than any colleague.

Crucially, it has made for excellent value for money too. Costing just £5.6m, Pereira’s score during the new manager’s reign working out at 5.5 points per million spent.

Pereira’s new central role has played a pivotal part in that upturn in fortunes, which has helped West Brom score four goals in their last two.

The Brazilian was deployed on the flanks for much of Slaven Bilic’s time in charge of West Brom this season but Allardyce has allowed him to play number 10 in each of the last three matches – which has yielded three goals for the midfielder.

Despite the 24-point score recorded in Double Gameweek 19, Pereira may have to be someone Fantasy managers keep only on their radar for now.

West Brom face Manchester City (home), Spurs (away) and Manchester United (home) between now and Gameweek 24.

Still, Gameweek 21 and 22 meetings with Fulham (home) and Sheffield United (away) offer some short-term appeal.

CELEBRATION

Michail Antonio (£6.3m) looks set to offer similar consistent form Fantasy managers witnessed during Project Restart.

On Tuesday night, he started back-to-back Premier League matches for the first time since Gameweek 6 and, despite still only working his way back to full fitness, already has two goals in two.

As we mentioned in our match report for the win over Burnley, Antonio’s knack of getting on the end of balls in and around the six-yard box is the true key to his appeal.

And it was exactly the story against West Brom, as he hooked a flying leg on the end of an Andriy Yarmolenko (£5.5m) knock-down in the second half.

Perhaps mildly ominous for owners and non-owners alike, is the fact that David Moyes insisted post-match that Antonio is still not back to his best.

The fact that the West Ham manager replaced him with Mark Noble (£4.6m) in the 84th minute suggests there is still game-time management required following his long lay-off.

That said, Sebastien Haller‘s (£6.1m) sale to Ajax is a continuing reminder that, at the very least, he is ready to start games consistently, if not finish them.

Meanwhile, anyone not in possession of Antonio might be somewhat concerned to see him score 18 points in Double Gameweek 19 only for his manager to imply there are remaining gears for him to cycle up through.

“He was excellent, his goal was great, but he is still not at full tilt. We are asking a lot from him and he is turning into a ruthless striker.” – David Moyes

VLAD THE IMPALER

West Ham’s run of defensive form was brought to an end by West Brom on Tuesday night.

Pereira’s second-half strike was the first Premier League goal the Hammers had conceded with Craig Dawson (£4.5m) in the side.

With Crystal Palace (away), Fulham (away) and Sheffield United (home) three of the next five opponents, there is certainly very little to worry owners of West Ham’s defensive assets from Double Gameweek 19.

The former Watford man looks closer and closer to squeezing his way into Fantasy consideration not least just because of his price but because he finally started offering threat against West Brom.

Dawson managed to find space on the back post to nod an Aaron Cresswell (£5.4m) corner towards Sam Johnstone‘s (£4.5m) goal in the first half, nodding just wide when he should have scored.

While Cresswell managed just two points on Tuesday night, his owners can still look forward to a period of strong potential for the left-back.

Of his six assists this season, five of them have come away from home and West Ham face road trips, to Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Fulham, in three of the next four Gameweeks.

Meanwhile, Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m) continues to be the more useful of West Ham’s full-backs at the London Stadium.

His assist for Jarrod Bowen‘s (£6.3m) opening goal was his third at home this season, the most of any West Ham defender in 2020/21.

The right-back even went close to his first Premier League goal in the first half, popping up in the box and watching his shot deflected wide for a corner.

West Ham United XI (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Cresswell, Ogbonna, Dawson, Coufal; Rice, Soucek; Benrahma (Yarmolenko 62′), Lanzini (Fornals 62′), Bowen; Antonio (Noble 84′).

West Bromwich Albion XI (4-4-1-1): Johnstone; Gibbs, Bartley, Ajayi, O’Shea; Grosicki (Furlong 70′), Sawyers, Livermore (Robson-Kanu 80′), Gallagher; M Pereira; C Robinson.

    Martinez
    Cancelo RJames Coufal
    Salah Bruno Grealish Son
    Vardy Antonio Bamford

    Dallas Mitchell Bissouma

    1 FT 0.6 ITB.

    Got a lot of ground to make up now so differentials could be the way forward.. However Dallas to Stones is boring but tempting.

    Any suggestions are much appreciated after a depressing DGW for me so far

    Thank you

    1. j16
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Maybe ESR instead of Bissouma?Also worth looking at Justin over R.James

    2. Steve The Spud

      2 months, 22 days ago

      I would consider a hit to bring in a city defender and attacker, if you really want a differential then could go sterling

      Don’t really think you can go into these next 3 without any city players

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Sorry I missed Cancelo, I’d bring in just a city attacker then

    3. Grendos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I like the idea of bringing Stones and ESR in. Double city defence could reap the rewards for the next few weeks. ESR could be the best value buy for the second half of the season.

      I’m bringing him in next week probably but rolling my FT in case we hear of any doubles. I think you could do the same with that team.

    Chillwell to Stones saves me 1.1m

    No brainer?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Chelsea do have some decent defensive fixtures coming up but he’s so expensive when they are playing this badly, I think I would do it but only if I didn’t have more pressing transfers to make and couldn’t save

    2. KunDogan (B.D.)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Both?

  3. Steve The Spud

    Haven’t got any villa so a bit nervous about their double but a good chance to assess which options are going to be best moving forward into their potential doubles

    Might just do a boring fabianski > Martinez

    Brilliant interview from Maddison last night:

    https://youtu.be/z17RCZfYQLo

    Refreshing to hear the way he talks.

    1. j16
      • 2 Years

      I thought that too. He came across as a really good person and pro

    2. Mario Balofail

      Totally agree

  5. Mr Ozil

    Any ideas what transfer should I make next GW?
    1FT, 2.4 itb

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Looks great, would save

      1. Mr Ozil
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        need to get KDB in with City's amazing fixtures

        Next 3 fixtures:
        WBA
        BUR
        SHU

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

      Son to KDB?

      1. Mr Ozil
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        or Bruno to KDB?
        I think Son and Kane are season keepers

        1. Boz
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Yeah either

        2. Grendos
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          See how Bruno gets on tonight but that could be a good move.

          He’s been so consistent this season but does look tired and Pogba may be affecting his output.

          I haven’t had him all season and I’m doing OK.

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I'd save but have Dallas and Mitchell 1st and 2nd on bench personally.

    4. j16
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      If Salah doesn't haul tonight I'd take him out for KDB

  6. waltzingmatildas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Best move:
    A) Taylor to stones
    B) raphina and wood to grealish and bench

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Everyone will answer A due to Stones 21-pointer & fact Villa haven't played for a bit.

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Yep. I just think with barkley back grealish could be the move. What do you reckon?

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          I don't know because I haven't seen what Villa are going to play like.

          You'd be far better off asking this after Villa play tonight.

          1. waltzingmatildas
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years

    A) Dier to Justin
    B) Save FT

    1. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
      • 3 Years

      Pereira was back on the bench last night. There's a chance Justin may end up in a 3 way rotation for 2 spots

    Downgrade Pulisic to Smith-Rowe and bank the rest to upgrade somewhere next week? Or roll a FT? 0.6ITB

    Martinez
    Dias Robbo AWB
    Bruno Son Grealish Foden Pulisic
    Antonio Kane

    Mccarthy Justin Holding Bamford

    1. Grendos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I think you can save the FT and play that team. 2 FTs very often the most sensible play in my opinion.

  10. Parsnips
      2 months, 22 days ago

      What should I do with 1 ft here?

      Possibly need to get Kane or Son in.

      De Gea
      Stones Cancelo Wan Bissaka
      Salah Bruno KDB Saka
      Bamford Antonio

      Martinez Wood Soucek Holding

      1. CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Too much £ in GK and defence imo. I'd lose De Gea for a start and go from there.

        Also, it's hard to give advice without knowing how much you have ITB.

        1. Parsnips
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Sorry, I have 2.6ITB

        2. Grendos
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Would you have enough if you downgraded De Gea and Wood to get Kane? How much would you be off?

          dont need a spurs player before the pool game, just hold, team is in a good shape

        Have no clue what to do with my team as they’re all on form. Would like more United but would cost -4 so best to just leave it I guess.

          funnily enough i'm going in the other direction, i'm thinking of removing some utd assets as i don't see their play actually resulting in value for money...

      3. Ajax Hamsterdam

        Do we have any idea when burnley have their dgw? Am tempted to do lowton to Mitchell to save funds but not so sure now. Thanks and gl

      4. NateDogsCats
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Can't figure out what way of trying to get Maddison in is best. Unless it seems like he's unfit I'm thinking of doing Vardy to Ings but then I need to decide who out of El Ghazi or Gundogan to move to fit in Maddison and honestly I don't fancy losing either with their fixtures and form (El Ghazi would make more sense of the two as he's probably the more likely to be dropped but if he plays both games this week it'll make me suspect that won't happen much). Then there's the option of Salah, I'll have to see how Pool look tomorrow night but it's not like their fixture list looks great anyway and I'd just be leaving the spare money itb to allow me to move him back in whenever they begin to pick up form again if it doesn't happen against Burnley.

            Would like him also but don’t think Everton is an amazing fixture so will just hold and then tackle it with 2 free’s

            1. bored by december
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              in the same position as you here, looking forward to having him in my team, lovely run of fixtures and hitting some good form, just be patient and get him in at the right time, GW21 for me

            2. NateDogsCats
                2 months, 22 days ago

                Yeah that's a good point, might just hold out on Vardy against Everton or move to Ings and wait until Leeds for Maddison, saves a hit too

            3. Ooh Ah Cantona
                2 months, 21 days ago

                I'd lose El Ghazi, he was a flash in the pan I think. His all round game is poor.

              Wanted to take a hit for the DGW... had a 50/50 decision between Kane => Vardy or Bamford => Antonio... 21 point difference... I chose badly 🙁

              1. Ooh Ah Cantona
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  I think Bamford is done, I'm looking to drop him asap

                  Stones & Justin are 35 points.

                  Subtract 1-2 of those and people will be on a more even playing field.

                  There will still be players like Antonio, Maddison etc who have done well but are lower owned.

                  2 months, 22 days ago

                  Worth considering. Soucek does seem to sit deeper with Antonio in the team. He could have had a few extra points in last night's games, but tricky to tell if he's going to offer as consistent a threat as ESR.

                    Would be a bench warmer so might be worth it? Just need to be sure that he keeps his place if my other players have tough fixtures

                    Imo it’s not tricky, positionally I mean. ESR is playing as a free roaming attacking midfielder, and alternatively, Soucek is tasked with defensive duties.

                    I got in on ESR this week to bring in KdB (c). 4 assist in 5 matches (all starts). Plus he is consistently subbed before full time indicating his continuance of starts.

                    I think he’s worth a shot

                Are Spurs' fixtures really that bad?

                Noticed a ton of people dumping Son on social media.

                  They aren’t when you consider how well we’ve done against some of the big teams

                  Problem is we don’t look like scoring many goals and seem willing sit back after 1/2

                    This, even though son, kane often score/assist once for me they don’t seem essential, only based off when I’ve seen them play on tv, where they get one and then don’t attack much beyond that.

                  Don’t think they are that bad no, and I held Son + Kane through their last “bad run”. That being said personally I dropped Son to afford KdB for the double and feel spreading the value to more teams is the way forward, as much as I’d love to keep Son I prefer Kane with penalty duty.

                Is Chilwell to AWB / Castagne / Justin a sideways move?

                      Sure but Wolverhampton and Burnley at home doesn't sound like bad gameweeks. I'm keeping for now

                    Chillwell looked back to his best first game of dgw. Not sure what happened last night, more just that Leicester were very good perhaps

                  Will be lot of benching headaches it seems next gw, especially ones who played Bench boost.

                  My defence alone is tough with
                  Stones Chilwell Robbo coufal and dallas.

                    Tell me about it. I could end up benching Watkins, Soucek, and Coufal next GW which has a chance of going really bad!
                    Will need to start downgrading the following week

                      Yeah it could possibly be a better BB than this gw for points! Saving FT and downgrade in 2 gws as well.

                        Could be. How was your BB this week? I’m personally happy with how it went.

                          Bad, but in a good way.

                          It was for me BB and a - 8
                          or just roll with my team (dallas, bamford, martinez in first 11).

                          So I did BB, but only got dallas, bamford, adams + martinez to go.
                          You can say its bad, but my - 8 transfers in were
                          Smeichel, antonio and Stones for forster, dcl and mitchell.

                          So safe to say it was a huge succes!

                          Hows yours?

                            Wow the three players you got in went huge!

                            I had two FTs myself & did a -8 too replacing Son, Kane, Tierney, and Neto with Salah, Antonio, Chilwell, and Maddison.

                            Sitting on 101 points & 10 games left so happy days 😀

                              Much to look forward too then! Nice call with Maddison as well.
                              And great ranking. Congrats and good luck for the rest of the gw!

                      Stones Coufal Dallas based off fixtures but seems stupid to leave two of the most expensive defenders in the game on the bench

                        Yeah thats the issue. Based on value and ownership, robbo and chilwell almost need to play.

                      This is the main reason I didnt use BB so early in the season. When you use it in one of the last GWs its much easier to plan who you will play and bech the following GWs after BB.

                        I agree at the end is better.
                        But my team was set up ideally and no more FH so was the best time.
                        Just afraid I will leave more points on the bench next gw than this!

                      Vardy Bamford Brewster

                      Worth planning to get Salah back in for gw21? Or better premium options given their form?

                      Very frustrating to see 6 Leicester defenders and midfielders as top scorers so far this week and Vardy only getting 4 points. What were the chances of tie lemons, Barnes and Maddison ALL massively out scoring him. At least I had Justin. 99 points with 5 left to play including TC KDB again tonight. Still big opportunities for my rank increase this week to drop back with no villa players and only Salah and Bruno from pool and Utd.

                        Another example of random variance ruining the game. If you pick an attacker from a team that scores 4 goals you should be given 6 points or so to even it out because you made a good pick on paper

                        99 with a TC KDB still to play is no situation to be complaining from. Could easily be smashing past 150 points later today. Best of luck.

                        But 3 of next 4 are away where he tends to do better and the other game is vs Leeds who have done terribly vs the bigger sides

                        This is another lesson learnt this season. Don't buy two goalies from the same team and make your fodder keeper be someone from a dud team like Palace or Burnley.

                        Lots of team ruined by having Steer or in your case Martine preventing them from getting the likes of Grealish or Antonio.

                          absolutely in hindsight, but don't think many would have ever thought about owning 3 Villa especially not for prolonged periods

                      In order to get kane i need to make the following changes over next 3 weeks....
                      out: davis (bench), son, robbo
                      in: kane, smith-rowe (bench), mitchell (bench)
                      is it worth it?

                        No, I think Son is better value than Kane so getting rid of him to get Kane in is a backward move IMO!

                          2 months, 22 days ago

                          No, just hold Son instead I think

                          I'd say those transfers are one big downgrade, one small upgrade and Son to Kane which i think is just sideways.

                          One more week will also give you more chance to evaluate Barnes vs Maddi and i don't think either will get too much vs EVE.

                            This is a very good point thank you 🙂

                              Also looking at Soucek one more week before a Lei mid. But I’m also finding it hard not to include ESR as a feasible 4th mid option
