Our club-specific Fantasy Premier League tips conclude with a look at three potential West Ham United bargains for the 2014-15 season, for those of you trying to box a little clever.

Supporter sentiment at Upton Park still seems to be very much against manager Sam Allardyce, but the Hammers – or, if you happen to be a fan, Irons – should be good for another turgid lower-mid-table finish with him in charge.

Not exactly inspiring, and certainly not in the traditions of this grand old club, but there’s value to be had in their squad regardless.

Gather round, then, as we issue our West Ham weighted Fantasy Premier League tips…

Matt Jarvis – £5.5m

The midfielder mightn’t have pulled up any trees in his West Ham career thus far, but he’s shown up well in pre-season and showed what he’s capable of with 8 league goals for relegated Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2011-12.

He notched up six assists that season too, so be ready to pounce at the first sign of him returning to peak form.

James Collins – £4.5m

At 6’4, Collins is a threat from set-pieces – a dab hand in a Big Sam side – and he’s the cheapest option of West Ham’s likely starting defenders.

Ravel Morrison – £5m

Who knows whether the mercurial yet immensely talented young midfielder is able or even willing to change his ways?

His goal-scoring form in the early part of last season seemed to herald the arrival of a truly outstanding Fantasy Premier League bargain, so keep an eye on his progress should he be granted another opportunity.
