Antonio starts for West Ham as Reguilón returns to Spurs line-up

Michail Antonio (£6.6m) returns to the West Ham line-up as they host Spurs in Double Gameweek 25.

The forward missed the most recent Premier League outing, a 3-0 win over Sheffield United, with fatigue but is looks to be back to full fitness.

Antonio leads the line in today’s London derby with Jesse Lingard (£5.9m), Pablo Fornals (£5.9m) and Jarrod Bowen (£6.0m) in attacking midfield.

With Tomas Soucek (£5.3m) and Declan Rice (£4.7m) in defensive midfield, the only other notable piece of team news is a second successive start at centre-back for Issa Diop (£4.3m).

He continues to fill in with Angelo Ogbonna (£4.9m) recently sustaining an ankle injury.

There will be plenty of attention on the Spurs team today too.

Harry Kane (£11.1m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) will both be under the Fantasy microscope for those considering how to set their teams up for Double Gameweek 26.

Spurs face Burnley (home) and Fulham (away) in the next round, offering one of the kindest Double Gameweek schedules.

Elsewhere, Japhet Tanganga (£4.9m) retains his right-back berth and there is a surprise return at left-back for Sergio Reguilón (£5.5m).

Double Gameweek 25 Line-ups

West Ham United XI: Fabianski; Cresswell, Diop, Dawson, Coufal; Rice, Soucek; Lingard, Fornals, Bowen; Antonio.

Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris; Reguilon, Dier, Sanchez, Tanganga; Højbjerg, Ndombele; Son, Lamela, Moura; Kane.

    Looks like another blank from Son on the way (15 from 7, so far). I've benched my two Villa, Stones and Gundo. City and Villa are bound to rip it up.

      On El Ghazi watch as a Raphine replacement.

      On penos, right?

      2nd behind ML leader who did Antonio/Lingard > Bamford/Raphina. He’s also a Spurs fan. Makes me feel better about doing Antonio>Ings.

      David Moyes seems has done it once again.
      Managed to extract the best out of a mid table club.

      1. Party time
        • 2 Years

        Yes just like at everton

      2. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Yup, but definitely not good enough for a team that's expected to do well

        1. Do I Not Like Orange
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Or any team below midtable. Threw in the towel at Sunderland about 3 games in, after signing Man Utd's worst youngsters and all his washed up Everton mates.

        Fernandes TC going to be very popular next week after this.

    • Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Digne LW, Pereira RW, Cancelo AM.

      We can play the fabled 0-8-2.

    • Pino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Do you think Spurs will score?

      Yes
      No

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Yes, 1 goal.

        Kane will score

      2. Tango74
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Hopefully not. It will make people have a mass debate on bring thing for DGW26

        • Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I didn’t. But now Grealish is not playing that means Cresswell is coming on for me. So yes.

        • Little Red Lacazette
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Son will

      3. Tango74
          1 month, 18 days ago

          So armartey is not nailed? What about El Mohamedy for villa??

          Kane for TC looks crap now

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            That TC idea has been questionable for a while

        • Jindaljain

          Grealish out Antonio in..little lucky

          1. Gudjohnsen
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            That's why you have a good bench.

            Not luck imo

            1. Hazz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              I mean it's a little lucky. Grealish when fit plays 90 every match.

          no Grealish means my 1st sub Antonio comes on now 🙂

          Jose doing classic Jose ahead of thge DGW. Son/Kane are going to bang in 5 between them.

            Don't trust them.

        • EmreCan Hustle
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          El Ghazi, Traoré, Barkley, Watkins. All selfish players, no creativity.

        • mrodgers91
          • 3 Years

          Did grealish -> raphina about 5 days before deadline. Felt pretty smug until i remembered robbo and salah are in the team

          Triple M battle

          Battle of the ex Man Utd managers...in London.

          Moyes looking great for the victory

          With KDB back, does this mean Gundo is less attractive as an FPL option? Their double fixtures are so good.

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Gundogan was playing & scoring when KDB was in the team.

            It means more rotational options sure, but when they both play together sure benefits Gundo still. Kev creating chances for him...

          Grealish out that must be good as my rival has him

          Argh of course he has Mount first on the bench for some reason

          1. Tango74
              1 month, 18 days ago

              So we now now of trainers physio and staff or players transfer out the player is injured

            Son doing his best Ozil impression in this game.

            1. mynameisq
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              At least ozil created chances no matter what son isn't even doing that

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 18 days ago

                Jealous of non owners. I can't even remove him until GW29 ends.

            Might go Barnes and Vardy instead of Son and Kane with my 2 transfers.

            1. Magic Zico
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Yeah I am with you - Vardy and Pereira

            How long is Grealish out?

            On a WC and currently thinking to buy El Ghazi, but if Grealish will be back soon (before GW28), then Barkley seems like a safer option?

            1. Rupert The Horse
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Out next game too I’ve heard.

            2. aleksaa2
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Out vs Leeds too, maybe back against SHU

            3. vincentwsho
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              So I guess Barkley is worth the extra 0.6, though El Ghazi is on pens

              Started him last week, now third on the bench. City lineup and cameos will decide if I get him or not.
