Is Antonio a keep or sell and is Alonso a good Chilwell replacement in FPL?

We are now approaching the business end of the season and the Gameweeks will come thick and fast. As Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers, we need to react and absorb information over a short period. There is no room for passengers.

Speaking of passengers, I want to start off this article talking about FPL’s top-scoring forward – Michail Antonio (£8.2m).

It’s just one goal in the last six matches for the West Ham United striker, so let’s have a look at his numbers.

MICHAIL ANTONIO: KEEP OR SELL?

Above: Forwards sorted by expected goal involvement (xGI) in Gameweeks 1-6

Antonio notched 47 of his 63 points in the first six Gameweeks, despite missing one game due to suspension.

He topped the numbers for forwards in that period, with a whopping 21 shots in the box, 11 chances created and seven big chances. He was also top for expected goal involvement (xGI) (5.21) by some distance.

Above: Forwards sorted by expected goal involvement (xGI) in Gameweeks 7-12

A look at the last six weeks sees a significant drop in his numbers. While his chance creation has actually gone up (12 from 11), his shot volume has dropped massively (10 shots in the box vs 21 earlier). There have been only two big chances, too, which sees his xGI fall to just 2.39, less than half of his Gameweek 1-6 total. Again, it’s worth mentioning he played one game fewer in the previous sample. 

We discussed the merits of premium wing-backs in our latest episode of The FPL Wire. With Chilwell’s injury, you can easily substitute Alonso into the conversation. I highly recommend watching it. 

Good luck and see you next week.

    Should I, Anthonio and Raph to Benteke and Jota?

    Ramsdale
    TAA | Livramento | James
    Salah | Gallagher | Raph | ESR
    Ronnie | Vardy | Antonio

    Foster | Duffy | Tomyiasu | Douglas Luiz

      Moves may pay off.

    2. GreennRed
      • 10 Years

      Raphinha should be OK. Not keen on Benteke when you get Jimenez.

      1. FPL MAN 123
        • 4 Years
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        i dont have Jimi

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Should have said when you can get Jimenez!

          Raphinha confirms he's good ahead of trip to Brighton in the first minute of this interview. Happy days 🙂

        Yeah the Raphinha part of the transfer was difficult but an upgrade to Jota playing in the best attacking team in the league is a good upgrade.

    3. TopBinFc
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        Nope I wouldn't, you are getting rid of 2 nailed first team players for 2 who may not play in a few weeks. Just my opinion.

      • FPL MAN 123
        • 4 Years
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        think this is the hardest decision yet haha

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Antonio and Luiz to Jota and fodder?

    4. RedJive79
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      Is this worth any hits or GTG?

      Ramsdale
      TAA / James / Cancelo
      Salah / Gallagher / Mbeumo / Bernardo / Raph
      Vardy / Toney

      Foster / Antonio / Livra / Chilwell

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        Who do you think is worth a hit?

        1. RedJive79
          • 2 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Chilwell to Lamptey would be -4
          Then Toney to Jimi would be a -8...

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 2 Years
            6 days, 2 hours ago

            Not a fan of those hits for this GW. If you want a nailed defender over the December period, Lamptey isn't the player to go for imo. I wouldn't remove Toney who is up against a poor Everton side

            1. RedJive79
              • 2 Years
              6 days, 2 hours ago

              Fair points. Gtg then. Thanks.

          2. TopBinFc
              6 days, 2 hours ago

              Toney at home to Everton, I'd keep

        1FT 1.5 ITB

        Ramsdale
        TAA James Cancelo
        Salah Son Raph Saka Mbeumo

        A) Raph —> Jota

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years

          I would save the FT

        Hey guys,
        Would you do Chilwell to Alonso or Rudiger here for a -4? Would bench Livra

        Guaita
        TAA Cancelo James Livra
        Salah Foden Jota Raph
        Kane Toney
        (Foster Normann Davis Chilwell)

          yes and Alonso

            Cheers

        1. waltzingmatildas
          • 11 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Looks good

        2. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Foden to Jota would be a move to consider

      5. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        Better replacement for Foden if he's injured?

        A) B.Silva
        B) Gallagher

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          If you go for Gallagher, what is the plan with the leftover cash?

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            6 days, 2 hours ago

            Nothing really tbh. I get the cash I need for Semedo to Alonso & Kane to Ronaldo from both those transfers.

            1. Tonyawesome69
              • 2 Years
              6 days, 2 hours ago

              So you the leftover cash allows you to upgrade elsewhere then?

        2. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          B

      6. Rassi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        Any fellow Schmeichel holders? Frustratingly, I have had him since the start. Thought about swapping him out several times but always had other more pressing transfers to make.

        Maybe this is the gw for his second cs of the season?

        1. Tshelby
          • 6 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Next Fixtures seem to be decent for Leicester

          1. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            6 days, 2 hours ago

            Leicester defence is now the good fixture for their opponents

        2. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Schmeichel has been poor this season

        3. Marcin the Pole
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          I wouldn't bank on it, we're shambolic defensively.

        4. NateDog
          • 1 Year
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Honestly I'd suck it up and get rid, as annoying as it may be. Leicester have been atrocious defensively, a friend of mine (and rival in a minileague) has had him most of the season too and practically every week I've looked at him and been confident he'll get no more than 1-2pts and it's turned out that way. A move to someone like Ramsdale might work well, fixtures aren't too bad and you'll save a little money. Watford is a good fixture for Leicester but I'd expect them to score with the way they attack and the way Leicester are defending

        5. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          I wouldn't keep him - and I support the Foxes. Our defence looks porous.

        6. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          It is simply awesome you can spell his name. But get rid.

        7. Rassi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          6 days, 1 hour ago

          Thanks all. He will stay till I play my WC somewhere between gw16 and 20.

      7. Tshelby
        • 6 Years
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        Save ft?

        1ft and 0.0 itb - Still got my WC

        Sanchez
        TAA, Cancelo, Christensen
        Salah, Son, raphina, Jota
        Jimenez, Wilson, Antonio

        Foster, White, Gilmour, Livra

        1. waltzingmatildas
          • 11 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Play White over Christensen?

          1. Tshelby
            • 6 Years
            6 days, 2 hours ago

            I think White will come in for Raphina? You think ManU will score?

        2. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Not keen to take a punt with the WC still to play? e.g. Christensen to Reguilon?

          1. Tshelby
            • 6 Years
            6 days, 2 hours ago

            Great idea! 0.2 short but I like it

            1. Tonyawesome69
              • 2 Years
              6 days, 2 hours ago

              Ah ok. I thought Reguilon was under 5m. Maybe best to save the FT then to give you more options for short term punts if you can't find one this GW.

              1. Tshelby
                • 6 Years
                6 days, 2 hours ago

                Loved the idea to fit in Reguilon but taking a hit for him is maybe a bridge to far

                1. Tonyawesome69
                  • 2 Years
                  6 days, 2 hours ago

                  Agreed, I wouldn't take the hit

              2. Tonyawesome69
                • 2 Years
                6 days, 2 hours ago

                Maybe Antonio to King?

            2. Pegboy
              • 11 Years
              6 days, 2 hours ago

              Just do Royal instead? He's just as nailed and almost as attacking as Reguilon, and less likely to be substituted off early. And you've got your WC to get rid if he doesn't start getting attacking returns.

        3. golfboy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Yes. Nice team

      8. Erez Avni
        • 5 Years
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        What would you do?

        Ramsdale
        TAA Rudy Cancelo White
        Salah Raphi Foden Son Mbuemo
        Jimenez

        Foster Antonio Livra Broja

        A. Foden to Jota
        B. Foden & White to James & ESR/Gallagher (-4)

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Prefer James over Jota but the hit is the issue here. Probably A

          1. Erez Avni
            • 5 Years
            6 days, 2 hours ago

            agreed
            maybe James in that form deserves a hit….

            1. Tonyawesome69
              • 2 Years
              6 days, 2 hours ago

              I would say so as well but the other option in Jota for free is a good move.

        2. Ze_Austin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          I'm holding Foden

          Antonio + Livra > Benteke + James is what I'd do here. Mbeumo first sub, White second, Broja third

      9. Hryszko
        • 4 Years
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        Would you say this is G2G? Done Chilwell to James and now just trying to figure out who to bench, Rudiger or Antonio? Or, do I downgrade Rudiger to bench Fodder and then use that money to upgrade ESR to Gallagher?

        For example: Rudiger > White & ESR > Gallagher.

        Sanchez
        TAA - Cancelo - James - Rudiger
        Salah (c) - Son - Jota - ESR
        Jesus - Toney

        Steele - Antonio - Livra - Sissoko

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Don't sell Rudiger.

          1. Hryszko
            • 4 Years
            6 days, 2 hours ago

            Nah I don't want to, I think it's just a case of holding isn't it, bench rudiger or Antonio?

            1. GreennRed
              • 10 Years
              6 days, 2 hours ago

              Bench Antonio. Rotation might sort your bench out anyway with midweek games next.

        2. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          Rudiger is a far better option than Gallagher

          1. TopBinFc
              6 days, 2 hours ago

              Yeah Rudiger is a hold for busy December

        3. Killitzer
          • 11 Years
          6 days, 2 hours ago

          morning all

          My team has been a bit of a disaster this season and this week is no exception after some early moves (-4) to bring in TAA. Now Chilwell is injured but I could get away with no further changes but only if Foden and Raph play.

          Guiata Steer
          Chiwell (inj) Rudiger TAA Duffy Livra
          Salah Foden Raph Gallagher McArther (inj)
          Kane Vardy Davis

          Options-
          1. Wait for press conferences and hope Foden and Raph are playing
          2. Foden --> Jota or B Silva (another -4)

          Cheers for any input. I really wished I hadn't used that WC for Ronaldo and Lukaku back in GW4!!

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 2 Years
            6 days, 2 hours ago

            Not looking good for Foden. Raphinha trained with the group yesterday. I would consider Foden to Jota if he is out.

          2. hemalm
              6 days, 2 hours ago

              Yep, Foden to Jota is worth the extra hit

              1. Kloppage Time
                • 6 Years
                6 days, 2 hours ago

                Was thinking of doing Raphinha this week to Jota as I want him in, but now thinking of getting rid of Foden instead.

                1. Killitzer
                  • 11 Years
                  6 days, 1 hour ago

                  I think that confirms it. Foden--> Jota
                  Hopefully Kane/Vardy will start scoring or otherwise will just build a team of scoring defenders!

                That is wrong, should be C - James. Priorities James over Alonso

            Two injuries and no ft (brought Chilwell in on Monday..!)

            Can I scrape through on this or would you take a -4 somewhere?

            Sanchez

            Need to downgrade a guy to last bench spot to get James in,

            1. Hwang
            2. Toney
            3. Mbeumo

            I’ll bench Antonio this week so play two of the above but moving forward I’ll only need to play one of them

              Mbeumo would make sense in terms of actual output, but is there much to downgrade him to? Vs actually getting a useful striker by downgrading Toney. Hwang has 2 very good fixtures

              Yeah it will be Mbeumo to Gilmor or Toney/hwang to Davis

                6 days, 2 hours ago

                I'd do the Mbeumo move, Hwang has 2 nice fixtures and I've gone from planning to move on Toney to looking like I'll hold for a few more weeks with his decent fixture run

                  I’m leaning this way, but like Mbeumo as a bit of a place holder for Bowen

                If Toney > King works for the move then I'd do this, or even Antonio > King for additional money

                  Toney to Denis works, can’t stretch to king

                    Antonio > King or Benteke for me then. Prefer an explosive option to all 4.5 options who will score 2 points at best

                  Think bigger. Cancelo, TAA, James, Alonso, Reguilon back 5.

                Ramsdale (Foster)
                James TAA Cancelo Chilwell (Livramento)
                Salah Foden ESR (Mbeumo Brownhill)
                Kane Toney Antonio 0.4

                A. Chilwell > Alonso
                B. Mbeumo, Antonio > Jota, King (-4) and take out Chilwell next week

                I know everything changes if Foden is out...

                  A, but obviously wait on Foden. In which case it's probably Foden>Jota

                A bit mad maybe, but how does these moves look?

                Chilwell -> Reguilon
                Son -> Mané

                Own Kane, only have Salah for Liverpool and nobody owns Mané.

                Alternatively, I could get in TAA and Jota with those same moves and have some cash ITB

                  I weirdly like it as I think Mane is a great option, but if you don't have TAA I think I'd prioritise him. I went without from GW5 until last week but felt it was time to get him back with the fixture run and his form picking up and I imagine he's done some damage to your rank in the last couple of weeks if you didn't have him.

                  • 3 Years
                  6 days, 2 hours ago

                  TAA & Jota by such a margin

                  Yes I know no one owns Mane and he is 2nd highest scoring midfielder but he isn’t value at the price relative to other options when you factor in the fact you’ll never captain him

                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    6 days, 2 hours ago

                    Does potential captaincy really affect the decision if you're not looking for alternatives to Salah permacap anyway?

                    1. TheDragon
                      • 3 Years
                      6 days, 2 hours ago

                      It does for players at Mane’s price. My point is that Mane becomes worse value (points per million) than a number of cheaper options if you will never captain him

                Foster - Royal - Livramento - Brownhill

                Just did Chilwell and Antonio to James and Benteke for a hit. Could have gone Alonso without the hit but wanted to lose Antonio given his form/fixtures. Solid moves?

                  Was hoping to finally get rid of Benrahma but the chilwell injury has put a spanner in the works. Fairly Set on Havertz to Jota.

                  Best Chilwell Replacement? Rudi/Reg/Alonso?

                  Worth taking a -4 to lose Benrahma for Gallagher?

                  Why are Foden owners rushing to sell him when he might not be injured?

                  If you got him for a reason (other than just herd mentally of someone on Twitter told you to) then I can’t see why you would sell?

                    I think most are using Foden as a route to bring in Jota, like myself.

                    1. TheDragon
                      • 3 Years
                      6 days, 2 hours ago

                      Why though? Jota was just as good a pick when people went Foden over him. I’m not sure much has changed with Foden other than he has blanked the last few unless I’m missing something?

                        Just like the rush for Kane, I don't get it

                          6 days, 2 hours ago

                          People bought Kane out of fear, fixtures, Conte and history. Based on cold hard stats Kane is a horrendous pick currently.

                          Last season in the league he averaged over 0.5 xG in 20+ games. This season he hasn’t averaged over that in any games.

                          He is Kane and he loves Christmas so he could score huge of course but it’s pure hope than expectation currently

                        I guess people brought in Foden before the Firminho injury. Now Jota has a much better chance of starting most games as central forward he is a better option. Foden was also playing false 9 and is now out on the left.

                        I have Foden and am keeping for now though.

                    I'd be tempted to save, you could well bring in Alonso and Tuchel decide someone else is going to fill the lwb spot so too risky for a -4 for me

                    Alonso V United may not be the best game for him especially when you factor in the -4. His price is locked until after the GW13 deadline so you could get him for free in GW14

                    I'm on Antonio. Tends to do well in these sort of games.

                  As a reminder, since the Foden concerns are snowballing out of control, here's what was said about Foden by City's official site and Pep:

                  "... while Phil Foden is not fully fit for selection.": https://www.mancity.com/news/mens/manchester-city-paris-saint-germain-team-news-tactics-63773373

                  Pep Guardiola on Phil Foden's absence: "Phil had a problem in the last game against Everton, did not recover. Yesterday in training, he didn't feel good, and he's not able to play.": https://twitter.com/FFScout/status/1463649024087576584?s=20

                  There is nothing suggesting a major injury, like Bamford or Chilwell. This is a knock, and we'll get more news from Pep tomorrow

                  As a further reminder, Foden had a knock before GW12 and Pep said "We'll see", after which Foden started vs Everton; showing he's a top priority starter for Pep, as he could have rested him like Jesus. He then came off when he got a fresh knock

                  Wait for tomorrow's press conference.

                    Well summarised, and in addition to this Foden will have had a weeks' rest by the time the West Ham game comes around which could be vital in this busy run of games, not to mention Wednesday to Sunday leaves plenty of time for him to fully recover. It can be interpreted in different ways of course but to me Pep's comments just sounded like he was training like normal on Tuesday before the PSG game but he didn't feel fully recovered or able for that match. Lots of time in between that point and Sunday.

                    Final reminder, never believe a single word Pep says. Ever!

                      Lmao

                      He's been more open, honest and predictable than usual this season though

                      Although "We'll see" when Foden was already back in full training before that GW12 presser was prime Pep trolling 😀

                        That’s precisely how the troll lures it’s new victims. Tread carefully, trip trap trip trap……

                  Any predicted price rises tonight?

                  Particularly interested if I need to move on Gallagher and James.

                    At the moment, both looking likely to rise tonight

                    Bit early - look again in about 12 hours for a clearer picture.

                    Doesn't look like it at the moment. I'm sure there'll be activity today but Kane is closest at 98%, next closest is TAA at 90% Gallagher at 89% so it'll probably be fine. Kane has looked like he would rise for a few days now too and still hasn't so even that may not happen.

                    Both are probably going to rise but could survive one more day...
