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.

    I’m sure Kane could’ve taken a shot there instead of crossing ??

    1. JBG
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Yes.. So annoying.

    2. JIMMY764
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 months, 20 days ago

      Nah, the cross was on. Just took an extra second too long with it.

    Harry could have had a 15+ pts haul here

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Yes, it’s kinda nice he will be low profile though for next week 😎

        2 months, 20 days ago

        He will still be likely EO Over 75%

        1. TyroneGAA
          • 3 Years

          I’m going vardy over Kane he will be even more under the radar with everyone wanting Kane

          I would be happy if his EO was only 75% given that mine would be 300%

            Yup, TC is the one week of the year you don’t need to worry about your captain’s EO.

      Injured, out for next match as well.

      Injured mate. Rumours of long term injury

      BBC reporting shin splints - may be up to 5 weeks out

    When Tottenham brought on Bale vs. WHU last time, they lost a 3-0 lead in the space of about 10 or so minutes.

    Uno reverse?

    Surely Bale starts from now? Jose is so stubborn.

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 20 days ago

      This is the first time he’s looked good, nothing to do with Jose, he starts next game now and probably sits out the europa

    2. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      No chance. He wants to play that clearly AWESOME MF of Hoj, Ndombele, Lamela and Moura.

    3. F_Ivanovic
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I don't think he has the fitness to be starting and playing full 90 min games twice a week. Honestly if he got brought on at half time most matches it would probably be a good thing.

    this is the best week to use TC if not using bench boost but not sure who to put it on with Salah and Kane both blanking

    1. Catastrophe
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Fernandes or Gundo

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years

      Past performance is not an indicator of future performance

      1. Werner Brothers

        Yes it is....as long as you look at the right data

      2. Ode

    3. JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Kane could be on 15+ pts. I’m going to TC him. Mou will rest him midweek so he’ll be fresh for the 2 games

    4. Catastrophe
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Kane hasn't blanked yet, and if he does it will have been quite unlucky.

  9. Baines on Toast...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    Bale the best player on the pitch here

  10. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Bale in and tc

  11. Top Lad Dakes. - all chips …
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Lamela starting over Bale, ever, is criminal. I don’t care how out of sorts Bale has been previously

    1. JBG
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Lamela played well tbf though.

    2. Bobby
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Jose doesn't select his side based on talent, he does it solely based on effort levels. Its why his starting 11s always try very hard but arent great to watch

  12. BeWater
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Even though Bale might not have his lightning speed and athleticism of old the hallmarks of a truly class player are still there. The touch, vision, passing and shooting.

    • Davekitson
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I've only got WC left and was considering using it for GW26 to set up for 11 DGW players and a bench of BGW29, what are the best alternatives if I save WC and why? I've seen WC31 posed as a good option, do fixtures turn or something?

    • Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I want Kane

    • Athletico Underachieving
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Still can’t look past TC on Kane given this second half and Burnley’s defensive display yesterday

      • ivantys
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Son useless with Bale in team, he's not even on corners.

        • TheBiffas
            2 months, 20 days ago

            Salah-> Bale (C) thoughts?

                  That's cool wasn't assuming that, just like to hear why.

                  Was interested as Cavani was a question mark for me this week, and part of the reason I WC'd.

                I just made a search for "cavani" on twitter. Plenty of tweets saying he's out. Really hope it's wrong though.

                      I’m near top 10k and want to protect rank, scared of Kane. Considering:

                      Son, Ings and Coufal to Kane, Barnes and Digne (-8)

                      I know it’s a big hit, but Kane EO could hurt much more. Thoughts?

                            I agree. Don’t like taking them. Would gain two more DGW players though. I also imagine bigger affects on rank if Kane does well.

                              I took -4 to this week not owning Spurs
                              Got away with it and rank stable at 3k
                              -8 is too much in my opinion

                          I have a weird feeling that Alli would bang in a screamer.

                            If anyone’s doing that it’s bale.

                            He loves scoring a screamer against us!

                            Hopefully we hang on!

                            Therapy is needed!

                          Got rid of Richarlison for Kane, and benched Antonio. Time I stopped playing.

                            The game is one long gamble! Roll the dice again!
