fantasy premier league double gameweek 22 – focusing on West Ham

GW27 Watford (H)

Since the appointment of David Moyes, after a shaky start,  we’ve seen a transformed West Ham team especially defensively.  The game away from home to Stoke has also for the first time raised them up as an attacking force.

Home to Newcastle is the perfect time for an acquisition so we look at the possibilities for now and fantasy premier league double gameweek 22

Here’s how West Ham lined up v Stoke in GW18:


Adrian £4.3m GK

Has cemented the spot since Hart’s horror game against Everton.  GK’s, due to save points,  make a perfect defensive asset in double gameweeks especially if one of the games would be a clean sheet against the odds as the Spurs game would be.  It could see rotation with Hart given the 2 day turnaround between games in GW22 but Adrians form has put him clearly ahead

Ogbonna £4.4m Def

The CB started the last 9 for West Ham and every PL game since Moyes was appointed. His gametime security has increased with Moyes playing a back 3 in the last 4 games.  Ogbonna has scored and got 4 bonus points to add to 3 clean sheets in that time.  However in truth the underlying stats show that he offers little attacking potential although he has shown bonus potential.  West Ham’s defence has improved markedly since Moyes has been appointed and helpfully, for cheapie defensive assets, that’s particularly the case on their own ground

Masuaku £4.4m Def

The left sided defender has either played LM or LWB since Moyes appointment although in that time has yet to register an attacking return and despite his advanced position it’s not something I would hang my hat on given the underlying stats.  If Moyes chose to play Collins, Reid and Ogbonna in a back 3 he could be vulnerable to Cresswell taking his position as wing back.

Arnautovic £6.8m Mid

Either played as a forward or attacking midfielder by Moyes and in the 6 games started plus 1 as sub has scored twice.  Underlying stats have been good in 4 of those 6 starts though.  Whether he will play forward if Chicharito can force his way back into the team is a risk.

Lanzini £6.8m Mid

The chief creator of the side and has main set piece responsibility.  Is suspended for GW19 due to the simulation verdict against him.  Started all 7 games since Moyes became manager and has got 4 assists in that time including the hat trick of assists in GW18 against Stoke.   His underlying stats in those 7 games have been pretty mixed though, to say the least, with him either being very good or anonymous.

A quick word on  £7.4m Mid Antonio and £6.7m Fwd Chicharito.  Antonio has scored 1 goal and 1 assist in 11 starts and 3 as sub and has little in the way of underlying stats to make you think things will radically revert back to his breakout season in 16/17.  Chicharito through injury has yet to start in the PL for Moyes and it’s difficult to suggest him until that is established.  4 goals in 11 starts isn’t a disaster though.  His underlying stats are pretty ordinary which is the negative.
