Top 3 West Ham players to sign on FPL 2021/22

Top 3 West Ham players to sign on FPL 2021/22

Who are West Ham’s best FPL assets?

After staving off relegation by just five points in 2019/20, few people expected West Ham to improve all that much last season.

However, David Moyes’ side went on to prove one of the surprise packages of the campaign.

The Hammers were able to beat the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham to a Europa League spot, finishing the campaign in a very impressive 6th place.

Whilst this is of course good news for West Ham fans, it may not be what Fantasy Premier League fans wanted, as, after securing European football, sides like West Ham generally suffer in the absence of a squad capable of handling so many games.

And though this is something you should consider when selecting your FPL players, West Ham nevertheless have a handful of options to consider.

Michail Antonio, forward (7.5m)

The first of these is Michail Antonio, who comes in at a price of 7.5m.

The forward has been West Ham’s main striker for the past few seasons, and is a solid source of goals.

However, Antonio is pretty injury-prone, which diminishes his value on FPL.

He would score 10 and assist five in just 26 league games last term, and that sort of form over 38 appearances would make the 31-year-old a superb pick. But history would suggest that Antonio maintaining fitness for the entire season is, frankly, hugely unlikely.

Aaron Cresswell, defender (5.5m)

The next option you may wish to consider is Aaron Cresswell.

The left-back would provide a very impressive 11 assists in the league last season, to go along with 11 clean sheets.

This makes him one of the better middle-priced defensive options on FPL this term.

Of course, you could also get Luke Shaw for the same fee. But, when Manchester United embark on a tough stretch of fixtures between gameweek eight and fifteen, it could be worth swapping out Shaw for Cresswell.

Tomas Soucek, midfielder (6.0m)

The final player you may wish to sign from West Ham is Tomas Soucek.

Soucek had a decent first half-season with West Ham in 2019/20, and then proved one of the club’s standout stars last time out.

The midfielder scored a very impressive 10 goals, as well as providing two assists, and a similar return this time around would make him a potential bargain at 6.0m.

One potential drawback with Soucek, though, is the fact that, if Declan Rice leaves – the English international has been heavily linked with Chelsea of late – then he will likely not be allowed as much freedom to get forward beside another partner.
