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
    Dias • Targett • Dallas
    KDB • Sterling • Bruno • Son • Grealish
    Vardy • Bamford

    Forster • Mitchell • Brewster • Struijk

    1FT, 0.2ITB

    Frankly want to start Mitchell for next 7 games. Will these moves seem sensible next GW?

    Vardy + Dallas => Kane + Dunne

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Probably won't take a -4 hit to bring in Kane before the Liverpool game. Maybe save FT and do that transfer with 2FTs the week after?

      1. Lucky Z
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Yes that is what I am thinking

  2. Stormbringer22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Morning chaps! Going forward, who do you think are the better options from the ones below

    Son or Kane
    Cancelo or Stones

    1. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Stones and Kane

    2. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Kane and Cancelo in a vacuum but they're not necessarily worth the extra outlay. You could do a lot with the difference.

    3. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Any reason for going Kane over Son both of you? Pens?

      1. Lucky Z
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Yes, also less chance to be rested and also assisting when Son scores

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Also he just needs to fart to be on Baps...

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Son isnt more likely to get rested. If fit, they will both start every game.

          1. No Professionals
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            history tells us he is marginally more likely.

    4. Stormbringer22

      Thanks all!

      Do you have none of the 4?

      I'd probably opt for Kane and Stones.

      Although I'd aim to get double Spurs by GW23.

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Thanks Camzy. Yeah, I properly wrecked my team in recent GWks and have none of those 4 atm.

    REPOST:

    Any transfers next GWK? What to do with Vardy?

    Mendy - Button
    Robertson - Cancelo - Stones - Coufal - Mitchell
    Mane - KDB - Fernandes - Soucek - 4.3M
    Vardy - Antonio - Davis

    1. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I'd hang Vardy FPL wise

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Vardy probably has to go.

    3. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Im giving Vardy two more games. Want him in 21 vs Leeds, and Ive other transfers planned anyway.

  4. The Mighty Whites
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Start 3:

    Robertson v Spurs
    Dallas v Newcastle
    Mitchell v West Ham
    Coufal v Palace
    Dias v WBA

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Dias for definite is one. Coufal + Dallas the other 2

    2. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Robbo Dallas Dias
      pretty simple

    3. The Point About It Is
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      robbo, coufal, dias

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I'm never benching Robbo.

      Robbo, Dias, Dallas.

      Newcastle are so bad right now.

  5. REDMOND IN SANDALS
      2 months, 26 days ago

      can't believe I got caught in the soucek trap.

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I think people confuse the term trap with the term good FPL asset that just happened to not return this week, like every player is prone to doing.

        1. Camino Aleatorio
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Trap because ESR or Gondugan would have been better

          Soucek is not a bad trade cause he cost so little, what did the template lose? Nothing but Harrison, Raphina, or Boussuma?

      2. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        he was a 5m enabler who went on a decent run earlier in the season.

        What did you expect?

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        He more or less matched Son at least. I was very close to doing Son + Adams > Soucek + Vardy instead of just Adams > Antonio.

        Relieved I made the latter choice.

    • Footieboot
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Martinez - Forster
        Stones - Dias - Dier - Coufal - Mitchell
        Salah - KDB - Bruno - Grealish - ESR
        Kane - Bamford - Brewster

        1FT

        a) Replace Dier? Who would be a good replacement? Possibly a bad move if Spurs end up getting a double anytime soon
        b) Roll and play ESR

      • Tshelby
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Hey all,

        Feels like luck is finally turning my way.

        What's next now?

        Could get rid of:

        Chilwel -> Justin
        Soucek -> ESR
        Grealish -> Maddison
        Adams -> Brewster (save some funds for later)

        The team
        Martinez
        Chilwell, Dias, Stones, Coufal, Alioski
        Grealish, Salah, Bruno, KdB, Soucek
        Adams, Antonio, Bamford

        1ft
        0.1 itb

        1. The Point About It Is
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Think i would save FT then do adams>brew in order to upgrade Soucek

          1. Tshelby
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Soucek to than? Would be a 7.0 midfielder. Thinking about Barnes?

            1. The Point About It Is
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              Barnes good option or squeeze more money out of def by bringing in Mitchell.

              1. Tshelby
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Could be my way in to get Maddison

      • REDMOND IN SANDALS
          2 months, 26 days ago

          kane or antonio ?

          1. Wild Rover
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Lol, how can you compare? Kane is nearly £5m more expensive

            1. REDMOND IN SANDALS
                2 months, 26 days ago

                easy. points per cost

            Well we can safely say Vardy was a disappointment... he just looks... not as fresh and sharp as his team mates around him... maybe that chronic hip issue is finally taking a toll...

            1. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              He’s been phenomenal for Leicester but I’m not sure he now matches how they want to play in games.

              1. Miguel Sanchez
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Think Danny Ings would be a great Vardy replacement for them with his ability to link play and drop off the front

                1. El Presidente
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  2 months, 26 days ago

                  That's a great shout, Ings would fit in perfectly in that squad

                  1. Miguel Sanchez
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    Yeah a rotating front three of Ings, Barnes and Maddison would be great

                2. NateDogsCats
                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    I was just thinking this this morning, Rodgers said yesterday or the other day they were planning for life after Vardy and the papers today are all over Spurs interest in Ings due to Ings not signing a new contract with Saints supposedly because he wants to go to a team with CL football, but this would tie in with Leicester a lot better than it would Spurs

                3. El Presidente
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  2 months, 26 days ago

                  He has indeed. Definitely one of the best strikers of the last decade for sure.

                  I don't think it's a tactical issue I really think he's struggling more and more with that hip problem he has for ages...

              2. REDMOND IN SANDALS
                  2 months, 26 days ago

                  I would be worried about selling him with such favorable fixtures for Leicester.

                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    There's only really the Leeds game that jumps out in Leicester's fixtures to me. Their fixtures are fairly middling otherwise

                  He will start, with painkillers if needed. Too big a game. Will rest and get treatment during FA Cup weekend.

                  Would bet shitloads of money that he does start tonight.

                    Just Adams > Antonio. A big win.

                    I wish I took hits to get rid of Zouma and James but I had no money to do Zouma > Cancelo/Dias (already have Stones).

                    Kane, Son, Lamptey -> Antonio, KdB, Cresswell (would have played Bam if I didn't get Cress for Lamptey).
                    With no chips played and -8 hit, would have taken small red arrow, on green now with 10 games left, so pleased.

                    Kane to vardy, it wasn’t a success but I will keep him hopefully until 23 so not given up on the move as a whole

                    Sterling should start as false 9 today? No Kun and dreadful Jesus.

                    Jesus with just 2 goals and 1 assist in 8 games this season where he stayed 90 minutes at the pitch. Imagine what figures would Kun have not going far, a season or two before in such situation.

                      Thoughts on Vardy and James(4.3 fodder mid) to Antonio and Grealish here for -4? Soucek would become a fifth mid.

                      Martinez
                      Cancelo, Dias, Cresswell
                      Sterling, Bruno, Son, Soucek

                        Lol.

                        I would have har a nightmare if I didn’t play wildcard.

                        Bednarek, Son, Martial, Webster, Steer, Masuaku, Klich > Stones, Kdb, Antonio, Cresswell, Coufal, Ederson, Lookman

                            Yeah & Antonio. 94 pts at the moment + 6 left. Couldn’t have played it any better

                        Amen to that. It's not even that my players have done that badly, but that all the ones I don't have who everyone else seems to own - Antonio, Stones, Justin - have gone mad.

                          Yeah I'm lucky that I got Antonio, but feels like Stones is the difference between a good week and a bad week.

                          My Cancelo/Stones coinflip just went wrong.

                      Predictions for Man City Villa tonight? I'm feeling......3-1...........KDB goal+assist, Grealish also involved

                        • 8 Years
                        2 months, 26 days ago

                        3-0 City, Stones hat-trick, all assisted by KDB.

                        That's a very specific prediction

                          I admit that it rather suits my team (KDB TC and no City defenders)

                        there's a difference between a prediction and what you want to happen.

                              How could you get it sooo wrong? Triple up on Whammers, KDB, Double CTY defence...the evidence was there 🙁

                                Planned to tackle it through transfers. Did Kane + Ampadu to Vardy + James for a -4. Vardy 4 points, James 1. Initial plan was to keep Kane and just do Ampadu to Dawson. 16 points lost there. Captained Salah. That's an 11 points differential as of now. A total of 27 points that I have missed with an in mood KDB and totally uninterested Salah still to play!

                        Do we have any idea of possible doubles played before 26?

                          2 months, 26 days ago

                          Not yet. But the most likely are:

                          23 - Lee-Sou double
                          24 - City to double probably with Everton.

                        Think I need Justin in for Chilwell sooner rather than later. I know Chelsea have decent fixtures but I just don't trust them under Lampard.

                          I still don't want Justin. His price is no longer that appealing. Better to get Shaw imo. City defenders are priority.

                          Justin is the one player I will continue to refuse to get. It is personal now ! 😀

                        Salah Situation

                        (A) just a dip, still the Man
                        (B) Liverpool need to shake things up in front 3
                        (C) Salah feuding with teammates- as Michael Owens seem to say
                        (D) he is the new Alexis Sánchez

                        I think Pool should offer him to Ed Woodward in a straight swap for Bruno. Ed says yes, Pool rush the paperwork before outrage mobs catch wind....bam! Greatest heist since the Great Train Robbery

                        Ed probably gets committed to a mental health institution

                          Where did C come from? If that was the case Klopp would have already addressed it.

                          Easily A.
                          For Burnley, I see Hendo back in midfield giving them a better balance.
                          Expecting pool to score 2 or 3 vs Bur with Salah hopefully involved in the goals.

                        Ricardo Pereira is going to be a starting winger very soon. Just a shame he's likely not fully fit in time for Leeds.

                            He'll play all 3.

                            Castagne RB, Justin LB, Pereira RW instead of Albrighton.

                              Albrighton is a better winger than perreria.

                                I diagree. Albrighton is declining.

                          Prob consider benching Soucek or Smith Rowe

                          James > Cancelo worth a -4?

                          My backline is:
                          Stones, Coufal, Dallas, Mitchell and James.

                          If James is dropped and Cancelo plays the hit could pay itself this week.

                            Yup, good City fixtures and got to maximise on 3 City players.

                            Probably not worth a -4...

                            But I would definitely do it anyway 🙂

                              Doesn't matter if it doesn't pay off right away. I imagine it'll be worth it over the next 7 weeks or so when City have a bunch of DGWs and plum fixtures of wba SHU bur.

                              I could wait and do it next week as well, but the problem is, James has BUR next week and I'll be tempted to hold...

                            I am holding James for Wolves and Burnley. You have enough on the bench to cover him.

                            1. Camzy

                              2 months, 26 days ago

                              Why? The benchings could be bad, Chelsea bang out of form. City defense is all the rage. I want rid. Could go to Cancelo or could go down to Shaw.

                                Def get in Cancelo or even Justin

                                My plan is to WC in 23. Do not want to take any hits till then. Vardy and James are the two issues in my team. But both have decent fixtures till 23. So I will hold. Can go either ways but its a risk I am willing to take.

                                1. Camzy

                                  Why WC in 23? Seems a touch early and I doubt your team is in that bad of a shape to need one.

                                    The team is alright. I was thinking in preparation for DGW 26 BB. Not a good idea.

                            Tough one, I want both once Chelsea sort themselves out, but how long will it take.
                            I'd say no for -4, yes if it was for free, why do you think James will be dropped?

                              Poor performance. Just coming back from injury.

                            Chelsea have good upcoming defensive fixtures, but not sure how much involvement James will have. I think switching to Cancelo and doubling up on the City defence is a good strategy that will pay off over the course of a few weeks, if not immediately.

                            2-1 Villa

                            Hard to say. But, I'm guessing they'll be at least a little rusty and City are on form.

                            That's why I'm so happy that it's the City game first. That one is a bit of write-off for my Villa players. But hopefully they can play themselves back into fitness / rhythm in time for destroying Newcastle
