The likes of Antonio and Bowen will be high on FPL managers watchlists for the 2022/23 season. Defensively the likes of Dawson and Cresswell could offer good potential next season. The West Ham defence had a number of injuries in the 2021/22 season, this reduce their minutes and the changes of clean sheets. However there was still some good attacking returns from defenders this season. Therefore they could be good picks, if consistently available for the 2022/23 season.
