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.

    Anyone in manchester at the moment? reports coming up that heavy rain has been pouring since yesterday and flooding are expected.

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      City Groundsman would have a cover on the pitch. Pitch should be fine

    2. RedWolf

      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I'm in South Manchester. It's been raining, not anything more than normal, but the rivers are rising. A free food warnings, but wouldn't affect FF!

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

        A few flood warnings. No free food.

    3. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 22 days ago

      With no fans that becomes irrelavant

      The ground itslef is top top quality wont be waterlogged

      I say this as someone who would benefit immensely from a postponement

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

        Do they keep the pitch covered until the players run out on it for warm-ups?

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Yes in some cases ive seen them do that

      2. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        What about travel for the opposing team?

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Theyll get there ine way or another with all the options they can afford

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

      I wouldn’t worry about this

  2. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Is Soucek attacking stats in the DGW affected by Antonio being back in the team?

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

      For me from the eye test he seemed a bit more restrained. Guess they need his height and physicality up front a bit less when Antonio is in the team.

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      No. He was still bombing forward. A player like him will, on an average, get a return every four or five GWs.

  3. Marcin the Pole
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Vardy owners, what's the plan? Doesn't look as sharp as he did earlier in the season, however he is still getting chances and has some tasty looking fixtures coming up.

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Very frustrating but with 3 away games and a game against Leeds, I think I will hold then switch to Kane

    2. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I dont think he looked mych sharper earlier too jut not getting the penalties anymore

      Have to keep him for bthe next 3 then will probably sell for kane

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Keeping till 22

    4. Jellyfish
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Probably hold until gw23 then switch out for Kane

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

      Holding until 23 then out for Kane

    6. kime67
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      his movement is not great anymore. hasnt looked like himself in the past couple of games. he just turned 34 maybe its starting to show. idk. think i might switch back to kane who seems to be in the form of his life.

  4. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Martinez
    Robbo Cancelo Dias
    Salah KDB Bruno Grealish Raphinha
    Antonio Bamford

    (Steer Cresswell Mitchell Brewster)
    1 FT & 0.3m

    Robbo ➡️ Shaw for free?

    Frees up funds for Salah & Antonio/Bam to Kane & Son down the line.
    Or could even use the money to upgrade one of the forwards to Ings or Raphinha to a Leicester mid.

    1. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Save and reassess with 2 FT next week

  5. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    What are the weaknesses in this team?

    Martinez Meslier
    Cancelo Stones Coufal Konsa Taylor
    Salah KDB Bruno Soucek Anguissa
    Vardy Bamford Adams

    1 FT 1.1 ITB
    Looking to WC 25 BB 26 FH 29

    1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Anguissa

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

      The forwards and Soucek

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Unortunately did Kane + Raphinha > Vardy + Soucek for the dgw but the move has backfired.

        Will look to move Adams to Antonio but his dgw on the horizon is a concern.

        1. Do I Not Like Orange
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          I would look for a way of getting Ings in for Saints double. Have owned Adams for about a month now & not enjoyed the experience at all.

    3. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Konsa and Taylor - better def available like Shaw and Mitchell
      Adams - downgrade and use funds on soucek and anguissa

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Cheers Tony

    4. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Playing 3 or 4 at the back?

      If former then soucek is a problem. Not a 4th mid

      If latter then ur defence needs improvement

      Leeds sou might have a dgw soon so cant chance the front line atm although adams is a weak link atm

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        4 ATB this week with Adams benched.
        Guess it makes sense to wait for possible dgw news this week depending on FA cup results before making any transfers.
        Could do Taylor > 5.5 defender or Adams > Antonio.

    5. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Vardy, Adams & Soucek.

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Got in Vardy Soucek this week for dgw and it hasn't paid off.
        Adams > Antonio looks an obvious move but Adams might have dgw soon.

    6. LegendMoon
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I wouldn't change anything this week. Taylor is back and Anguissa does what a 4.5 does. Wait until we know more about DGW, try to keep a transfer in the bank

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Cheers mate

        a

      3. SilentLemonMan
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Wouldn't take Wilson or Foden - must be better options

      4. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Any other Bowen owners relieved he finally scored

        1. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          no i imagine they are very frustrated with his goal.

          Got him on one of my FanTeam drafts. Pleasantly surprised. 13 points from him on there.

              No worries. Next big DGW is 26. Next BGW is 29 so you should take that into consideration when WC. We won't know the DGW and BGW fixtures until after 4th or 5th round of FA cup

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

          Without sounding flippant, WC when your team needs it most and BB when you have a full playing bench you are confident starts and have decent fixtures

          1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
            • 1 Year

            Agree Miguel

        118 points so fat with De Bruyne (C), Dias, Stones, Bruno and Salah to play. From position 1 900 000 to 779 000 in one GW. Finally, after an horrific start..

        What about you?

        1. The Frenchie

          Similar but only on 95 this week with triple United and city + areola kdb (c) to play

          Same sort of thing though, was 2.1m before 18 and now 800k 🙂

          1. The Frenchie

          Didn't wildcard or bench boost.
          Have gone from 7.5 K to 13 K but have Stones KDB captain Grealish Martinez Watkins and Bruno tonight so hoping to go back up a bit.

          109 (-8) with De Gea, Areola, Dias, Wan Bissaka, Cancelo, Salah, Fernandes, KDB (C) & Wood left.

          Abysmal first half of the season finally looking up.

        8. SilentLemonMan

            Similar here on 124 with those same city boys, Bruno, Watkins, Maguire, Allison - no salah has me worried!

            Great score. I have same set of players left and on 111.

          • jb1985

            2 months, 22 days ago

            On 111, BB played and still have 13 to go. Had bad start to the season so nice that bench boost has paid off (so far, took-24 hit). I have checked and I am +15 when taking into account the transferred players out and their point scored.

            Jonhstone,Martinez
            Stones, Dias, Shaw, Coufal, Justin

          Need advice. Horrible mess really - ducked the double hit for extra City this week - 1 minute late! Barnes and Antonio saving grace so far.

          Feels like a hit is needed.

          Mendy

          TAA Dias Targett Regulion
          Mo Bruno Son Barnes
          Antonio Bamford

          Steer Dallas Soucek DCL

          TAA to Stones is planned. Hit

          A Dallas to Maguire/AWB
          B DCL to Ings
          C Soucek to Grealish/Zaha
          D other

          1. No Professionals
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            I wouldn't hit that.

            Probably start Dallas over Reguilon and roll FT. Team looks good.

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

              Should Pool Spurs go 0-0 - possible after all - I'll be okay I guess. But single City and United seems off beam. Could get severely punished next week.

              Looking at ways to shift DCL into Manchester really.

              Ings attracts as an alternative. Feels like he could be a thing. Would be happy to match him up with Antonio and Barnes.

            Since Dallas is your 5th def, go with Mitchell. If going for utd def, I prefer to take the risk and go with Shaw

            Shaw from United or release funds with Mitchell

            DCL must be back soon and would be happy to play Soucek against your lot.
            TAA to Cancelo or Stones?
            Are you not convinced about Mitchell yet? Seems to be too good to be true if 1st choice.

              He's a temptation for sure. But not convinced yet and Palace defence is not much of an attraction - would prefer attack!!!!!

            As you're already playing Cresswell, I would start Rodrigo or Soucek ahead of Coufal.

              • 2 Years

              Cheers. I only brought in Rodrigo on WC16 because he was the only FWD I could afford that had DGW. His constant 60 mins games doesn't convince me to start him. Soucek doesn't seem to be as attacking when Antonio played in the DGW. I like Coufal for the CS and assist potential. I will wait for the CRY team news for Zaha

              • 4 Years

              Just realized that I can move Soucek out for Gundogan/ Saka/ ESR. Should I?

              1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 22 days ago

                I love Soucek, but 3 City seems a must. Rather another def than Gundog though if you can shuffle it around somehow.

          2. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            If saving then team is GTG. I'm currently on KDB cap over Bruno. I agree you need to maximise on 3 City players and prefer 2defs and KDB but you can't afford Cancelo or Dias without taking a hit this week.

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years

              Gundogan for 4 weeks? I plan to WC in 23.

            Morning folks, struggling to work out who to bench this week out of this lot.

            Loris, Leno
            TAA, Stones, Dias, Coufal, Dallas
            Salah, Bruno, Son, Grealish, Neto
            Antonio, Warkins, Bamford

            Any thoughts?

            Also, was going to save FT but might do Salah to KDB depending on what happens tonight/tomorrow.

              2 cheaper defs and maybe Watkins

            For everyone poo pooing the idea of a a city cancelation. Blackburn's home game got called off last night due to a water logged pitch, and that has been a premier league pitch until a few years ago.

            I need the game to go ahead from an FPL perspective (Dias, Stones, KDB(c)), but a postponement isn't as ridiculous as some are suggesting.

                Blackburn's pitch is a very good pitch actually, won awards a number of times in the prem.

                  Eh our pitch isn't the best nowadays. I don't think it's likely the City game gets canceled but agree that it can't be totally ruled out.

                    i guess we spend less on maintenance now we're in the championship. But the drainage should still be prem level.

              with these modern day pithes no way should any top premiership ground get called off because of waterlogging,and they won't

              Need someone in Manchester to comment, BBC mentioned 18 hours of rain.
              I am midlands & everywhere is either flooded or getting that way.

              The matches are usually cancelled due to crowds safety, covid took that worry away.

                In Salford - it's raining but no more than usual. Not like it's torrential, going sideways, can't-walk-the-dog-in-case-he-drowns rain.

                Leicester killing me this season, who to bring in Justin, Barnes or Maddy?

                Hold?

                Martinez
                Robertson, Stones, Dias
                Bruno, Son, Foden, Salah
                Kane, Bamford, Watkins

                Johnson, Soucek, Coufal, Mitchell

                1.5

                  Foden to Maddy?

                  Foden > Barnes or Maddison

                  Foden to Maddison looks a decent bet.

                  Robbo to Justin

                  Always wary of Madds, but really seems to have gone up a gear in terms of FPL output recently.

                    he does that though, couple of back to back returns, then goes quiet for a long spell. Partly puts me off, as after 3 in 3, i can't see him going 5 in 5 or 7 in 9 for example.

                  I'd be tempted by United defence.

                  Decent fixtures on the horizon and quietly last season their defence was right up there for value when they got on a roll. Thinking that that may repeat.

                  Otherwise Justin. But unsure of fixtures for defence before presumed WC

                  Still games to be played, but looks like Save to me and then look to get attacker for LEE.
                  That is my plan as well and I'm not interested in their defense (prefer others), but things may change.

                  Cheers,

                  Looking at Robbo to Shaw or Justin Or Foden to Barnes / Maddy.

                Is KDB injured?

                  Game day scaremongering.
                  Anyway nothing we can do now.

                  if people knew KDB was injured, this place would be in meltdown.

                KazGazTeam currently occupying 4th in the OR is smashing it this week. Sitting on 141 currently having TC'd Antonio and selected Maddison and Stones with 6 to play including the premium players. He probably wont make 200 but 180 is within reach.

                  Wow. Does he have lottery numbers?

                  I have 2 FT transfers:

                  Bowen --> Smith Rowe
                  Alioski --> Digne?

                    Do you have 3 City already?

                    1. McPollolocco

                        No, only cancelo but i'm in a mini league with some rules and I can't pick city players anymore!

                          Decent enough choices then. Everton have a couple of decent fixtures coming up and Smith-Rowe is a gift from FPL gods.

                    Any insight as to when Villa will get another DGW? Possible before 25?

                      2 months, 22 days ago

                      26 or 29 are numbers I keep seeing banded about

                      1. pingissimus

                        • 2 Years
                        2 months, 22 days ago

                        26 is a given but there's another one in there too. Is it against City?

                        Wondering whether there's an impetus to get it in early before more fixtures pile up.

                      Maybe better idea after FA Cup games at the weekend?

                    Just want to thank the legend who advised me against DCL + Son + Anguissa -> Antonio + Mount + Soucek...

                    Did it with Maddison instead of Mount, so danke very schon.
