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.

    Keeping Son as a differential in my ML has killed me where others have had Maddison/Grealish and spread funds. Can’t wait to ship him until Mourinho is gone.

    Nothing for Kane but glad to have him, he finds the corner twice on another day with his chances

    1. JBG
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Spurs best player imo. Not his fault the defence is all over the place and his supporting attacking players are playing like blind mice (bar Bale).

    For GW26 consideration only:

    A) Barnes + DCL
    B) Son + Bam

    1. Nikolai Volkoff
      • 5 Years

      A

      Alli is on the bench for a reason.

    Antonio and Pope on my bench with more points than my whole team. Fantastic.

    1. Kellz86
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Sold Antonio for Ings this week was my move

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Same here but for -4 🙁

  6. Kellz86
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    So is Lingard actually an option?

  7. JIMMY764

    7 played 7 blanks lovely stuff.

      This season of FPL summed up in one sentence.

  8. Gizzachance

    1 month, 18 days ago

    Have gundo, Sterling, cancelo
    Don’t have high hopes of them starting!
    Gundo a doubt, others played both dgw games thoughts?

    1. Kellz86
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Sterling I think plays, fingers crossed at least

      1. Gizzachance
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Yep, fingers crossed

    2. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      If Stones Cancelo or Sterling don't play then I get Digne's points, so I'm quite relaxed about Pep today!

  9. Bounce
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Another spineless performance from The Boring One.

    • Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Everyone still going balls deep into Kane for DGW26 then?

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

        Yeah I'm getting him for -4 and putting TC on him.

    • Steve The Spud

      Smash and grab from West Ham

        GW rank of 3.8mil and I still have a green arrow 😆 says a lot about the gw.

      • Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 month, 18 days ago

        Benched Kane today. AMA.

      • Arteta
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Piss off Antonio.

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

          ???

          1. Arteta
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Useless for 3 out of 4 games, now he goes and does this. Moyes and his comments didn't help with my decision making as well.

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

          Need 9 points from Ings on Tuesday to break even.

        4. Tinkermania

          I know right. He should have thought about your fAnTaSy team

      • Von Lipwig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Whoops, forgot to include the hit...
        For GW26 consideration only:

        A) Barnes + DCL -4
        B) Son + Bam

      • Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Lingard the man with 1 shot all game and 0 chances created... truly inspirational for a number 10 right?

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

          In the end it was still the match winner.

        2. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Didn’t do anything except 1 goal which was luckily created

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Was the same with his brace last time, 2 lucky goals and he’s singing from the rooftops

        3. DycheDycheBaby
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Clinical!

          I didn't watch the game but his is the 'kind' that receives unwarranted hate.

          He was good today. One of those times the stats don’t tell the story

      • seewhyaxe
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        I have 0 returns so far from my players whom played.

        1. No Kane, No Gain
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Same here. Nine players!!

      • mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Kane owners that was insanely unlucky, Son owners like myself deserve nothing but the blank, he was awful coufal locked him off

        1. dshv
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I am on son too.. now that feeling

      • Custard Gannet
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 18 days ago

        7 played and still no score higher than 2.

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

          Pope with 8 looking like a haul atm.

            Laughing at me from the bench...

      • bros

        1 month, 18 days ago

        WC &'TC still in tact.
        Would you WC this team?

        Ederson
        Mee Stones Digne
        Fernandes Gundogan Son Salah
        DCL Bamford Ings

        McCarthy Raphina Tarkoski Alioski
        Or, Was thinking if not wild carding bring in Kane for Ings and 4.1 in for Tarkoski

      • JBG
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        My attacking players have returned as much as Areola and Lowton. Great GW this. Bruno left.

      • HonestBlatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Who are you bringing in from Spurs DGW? Son or Kane (C)?

        1. DycheDycheBaby
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I think Kane may be enough

        2. Flynny
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Kane triple captain

        3. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Neither. Spurs are rubbish and don’t deserve the armband

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

          Harry 'ya just got kaned' Kane

        5. Maeki2

        Anyone looking to bench grealish for dgw26 in order to keep for bgw29?

        Athletic say its shin splints and not as bad as rumoured.

        I can play raphinha who has a single match v villa in 26

        Cant afford son and can't immediately see a grealish replacement who plays in 29 too who I'd want to bring in for a hit.. thanks

      • SADIO SANÉ
