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.

    Should I still do Ings to Kane for free?

      For free probably why not, but I will watch LEI and go for Vardy if they are more promising.

      If only there wasn't dgw 27 for Ings, but now it makes situation more difficult.

    This is like at chelsea before Jose left second time round. Team in freefall, only people playing for him is Kane (because hes Kane) and Dier (as Jose is his only hope to play another PL game)

        Rumors that he is out for 4-6 weeks were circulating before the GW deadiline.

      Jlingz is such an annoying twonk. Not a bad footballer but a massive bell end of a person

        He's really not that bad.

          Yeah. The press hate him for his carefree appearance, but is perseverant. Decent footballer without the game to play week-in week-out at UTD. Not the first, won't be the last. Good luck to him.

        Very harsh, is he a criminal, is he rude? No

      Grealish>Raphinha instead of saving a FT when DCL was first on bench not looking too good atm. Hope Raphinha does something against Southampton to justify an extra -4 I will have to take for dgw26.

          Always play players in the easy fixtures. West Brom, Sheff Utd, Leeds, Spurs.

        14 points on my bench

        1. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          That's almost as much as the 17 in my team.

        2. Tango74
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Why not play BB?

        3. Captain_Shirokov
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Current issues with my team:

          - have two pricy keepers (Pope & Martinez) with no plan to play BB gw26 because bench is too weak. Also have Tarkowski and don't want Burnley defence going forward.

          - Son (need I say more)

          - Sterling (see Son) but has the benefit of nice DGW fixtures. However he has been playing so, so wide the last few games and is currently a waste of 11.5m.

          - Coufal & Antonio, I know they are doing alright today and have a match (albeit vs Arsenal) in gw29 but at least one would probably make way on a WC.

          - Grealish (out for up to a month?)

          - Triple Leeds, I know this could be grand for gw29 but doesn't look good for the next 3 gws.

          Based on this current information, would you WC?

            GK situation, Grealish, Salah, Leeds bench, I am tinkering about it this week, if that helps. I would probably shift from double City defense to KDB and Gundo.

            Have a think about who you would replace them with but yeh, probably worth a wc

          The Athletic just ran an article saying Grealish is expected to miss the Leeds match also.

          Own Kane and Son yet somehow neither are involved. This season is a pure joke.

            Moura had no right to that ball. Painful defending from Cresswell
