Coufal absent as Antonio and Benrahma lead Fantasy interest for Everton v West Ham

Gameweek 8 continues with Everton hosting West Ham United at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.

Kick-off is at 14:00 BST.

Everton, who have made a good start to the season under Rafa Benitez, make two changes from the side that drew at Old Trafford in Gameweek 7.

Yerry Mina (£4.9m) is benched after his late return from Colombia, with Seamus Coleman (£4.9m) replacing him in the starting XI, while Alex Iwobi (£5.9m) also comes in for Anthony Gordon (£4.5m) further forward.

Andros Townsend (£5.6m), who has been involved in eight goals in all competitions since his summer move, starts on the right, with Salomon Rondon (£6.0m) leading the line in the absence of Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£8.0m) and Richarlison (£7.4m), who both miss out due to injury.

As for West Ham United, David Moyes makes just one change from Gameweek 7, with Ben Johnson (£3.9m) stepping in for Vladimir Coufal (£4.9m), who missed the international fixtures through injury.

Ryan Fredericks (£4.4m) also misses out again with a groin problem.

Everton XI: Pickford, Coleman, Keane, Godfrey, Digne, Allan, Doucoure, Townsend, Iwobi, Gray, Rondon

Subs: Begovic, Tyrer, Kenny, Holgate, Mina, Gordon, Gbamin, Davies, Dobbin

    Okay, those are the "one or two injuries" Moyes talked about

    Dude's gonna troll us soon, with his refusal to speak

    Benrahma- 36%
    Antonio - 46%

    Both very near levels where you don't even celebrate points as most active managers owns them.
    Not much excitement for me today.

      Most of them are dead teams.

        Wrong.
        Their value is going constantly up = active managers.

        Dead men tale no tales.
        Deaf teams buy no players.

          Only 22% own them both, look at it as if you'll be up on 78% of teams if they do well.

              • 12 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Think of it as down on 78% of the competition if both don't do well

    3. Hotdogs for Tea

      what is their ownership around your position though ? I think Ben has been sold by a lot of active players recently, certainly has red arrows on FPL Stats

  6. Hotdogs for Tea
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Doucoure & Antonio in this one … let’s hope for an open game and some goals

    Reckon this is going to be an open game, both have problems at the back, both playing attacking football so hopefully a goal fest 🙂

    Need Antonio, Doucoure and Gray to haul!

      Antonio can sod off with his YC when I've capped him.

    Gameweek 11 son and vardy will begin their spell of really good fixtures. Thinking of ditching raphinha and lukaku to bring them in....

  12. Nomar

    Need Digne assist, Townsend, Antonio and Benrahma goals today.

    So I'm a happy owner of:
    Williams - Rudiger - Bertrand
    Jota - Raphinha
    Bamford

    none of whom played this week. I presume I should WC or are we expecting a tidal change for next week?

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

      Raphinha should be ok. May be its time to wc

      1. Mr.K
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        That is what I thought...

    2. Lanley Staurel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Did you ponder on wildcarding last week with so many non starters?

      1. Mr.K
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        In all honesty I didn't have a lot of time to spare for FPL last week. I think I glanced at it, made one substitution and thought I'll look again later (but didn't).

  14. unclesbasement
    • 1 Year

    What to do with Rudiger...reckon he will be back before the norwich game?

    1. Nomar

        Man this site is a mess at the moment. Basic functionality is consistently poor & can’t seem to access members area at all. Anyone able to shed any light on why this is happening? I can’t find any articles or social posts that acknowledge the issues.

      @ Ogie, management too busy chasing the gambling dolla for sponsorship.

      Which is ironic as they’ll probably ditch partnership soon, if it continues like this
