Fantrax previews – Gameweek 27 (Friday)

West Ham vs Fulham ⚽ 22/02/19 @ 7.45pm (GMT)

Team News 🚑

West Ham 

Star man Marko Arnautovic should lead the line in this London derby. The most notable news surrounding Manuel Pellegrini’s selection, however, concerns Manuel Lanzini who may return to the squad after a long absence. With a Fantrax ownership of just 38%, now may be the time to snatch the Argentinian magician off the free agents pile.

Fulham

To say it’s not looking good for Fulham is an understatement. Claudio Ranieri’s outfit sit eight points from safety ahead of this London derby and despite having a front four capable of unlocking most defences, the back five are the sort you’d like your Fantrax forwards to play against. Calum Chambers and Aleksandar Mitrovic continue to be their only consistent Fantrax point scorers. I fancy to Fulham to find the target against a less than watertight West Ham.

Cardiff City vs Watford ⚽ 22/02/19 @ 7.45pm

Team news 🚑

Cardiff City

Neil Warnock will make a late call on playmaker Victor Camarasa who has been struggling for fitness since the Christmas period. Despite their lowly league position, Cardiff possess some valuable Fantrax option, most notably Callum Paterson. New signing Leandro Bacuna could be useful in the future. The right back can play in midfield and is known for his set piece delivery. Should Camarasa miss out, Joe Ralls will be a good pick for the home game against Watford.

Watford

Consistently inconsistent. Watford could easily grind out a win on Friday night or be turned over by a dogged Cardiff side. Javi Gracia’s lineup is even less predictable than his side’s form as fitness and form concerns over Roberto Pereyra and Gerard Deulofeu could see Andre Gray come into the side. The suspension of Jose Holebas gives Adam Masina a chance to impress and his defensive and attacking contributions make him an excellent differential choice.
