first_img Pennant produced a wonderful 82nd-minute strike that curled over the wall and beyond goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen to secure a 1-0 victory in their Barclays Premier League clash at Upton Park. The 30-year-old winger’s contract was due to expire in the summer and he was expected to leave having been marginalised under former boss Tony Pulis, only for Hughes to give him a 12-month extension. “Jermaine has been excellent since I came to the club. I’ve always admired his talent, but he’s had his own problems and will tell you that himself,” Hughes said. “When I came in and there was a real possibility he could leave the club, I felt like I couldn’t allow that to happen. You don’t want him turning up at Stoke in a different shirt. “I felt it made sense to keep him at the club and work with him to see what he’s like as an individual and player. He hasn’t disappointed me. He comes in every day with a smile on his face. “His work’s good and you don’t score a goal like he did without putting extra work in on the training ground, which he does every single day. “In the past maybe he’s been judged before he’s had the chance to show what he can do. He’s let himself down probably as well, which he’ll admit to. “He’s in a different place in his life now and is enjoying his life. I’m delighted for him.” Pennant’s goal was the highlight of a frustrating match that dominant Stoke should have won more comfortably with Kenwyne Jones, Marc Wilson and Jonathan Walters failing to convert first-half chances. “I think everybody would agree that we deserved to win,” said Hughes, who is hoping to bring in an attacking player before the transfer window closes on Monday. Stoke manager Mark Hughes claimed Jermaine Pennant’s match-winning free-kick against West Ham proved why it was vital to keep him at the club. “From the first minute until the last we got the ball down, passed and moved. Overall we always looked a threat and the only criticism I’d have is we should have won more comprehensively. “We had to wait until the latter stages of the game and that great finish from Jermaine, but from our point of view it was almost the perfect away performance.” West Ham manager Sam Allardyce acknowledged it was a poor display after watching his side fail to seriously trouble Stoke keeper Asmir Begovic. “At home, I haven’t seen us play that badly since we’ve been back in the Premier League, sadly,” Allardyce said. “We have to accept that at this moment in time it looks like we’re still establishing ourselves in the Premier League. “We still can’t quite reach the level of consistency this league demands. It was a really off day for us, a bad day. Our back four limited Stoke very well. “But the front six in terms of creativity really wasn’t there. It really wasn’t good enough and we played poorly, individually and collectively.” Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgWEEK 5 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerDraftKings Week 5 Picks: NFL DFS cash lineupWEDNESDAY UPDATE: QB Jameis Winston, Buccaneers at Saints ($6,200). We’re picking up $500 in cap to swap out Deshaun Watson and put that money toward a premium RB approach. Saints allow the most DK points to quarterbacks.RB Christian McCaffrey ($8,700): Running CMC again because he spits out 30 points! I’m hesitant about some of the other $8K backs for cash with Zeke having Tyron Smith out, and Alvin Kamara’s floor lowered without Drew Brees.WEEK 5 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endWEDNESDAY UPDATE: RB Dalvin Cook, Vikings @ Giants ($8,400). Even in a nightmare spot trailing at Chicago last week, Cook still got enough work to scrape close to 20 points — by far his lowest output. A much more favorable look ahead in the Meadowlands.WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles vs. Jets ($5,900). With DeSean Jackson sidelined, Jeffery paced the Eagles in targets last Thursday night in Green Bay. This should hold true against a far weaker pass defense in Gang Green, who allow the third-most DK points to receivers.WEEK 5 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | FD cash | FD GPP | DK cash | DK GPPWEDNESDAY UPDATE: WR Golden Tate, Giants vs. Vikings ($4,600). Tate ripped off four seasons with 90-plus catches in Detroit and was on pace to repeat before getting shipped last season. It being his first game regular season game with Daniel Jones does give me some pause, but the Giants paid him handsomely enough to continue this high usage.WR DJ Chark Jr., Jaguars @ Panthers ($5,000). Gardner Minshew got it to Chark even when elite corner Chris Harris was attempting to corral the breakout sophomore, slinging it Chark’s way eight times on Sunday. He’s the target leader for Jacksonville’s quite-functional pass offense.TE Austin Hooper, Falcons @ Texans ($4,500). This price remains way too low for a tight end coming off consecutive 25-point weeks. Hooper quietly edges Travis Kelce in targets, and the Falcons figure to go pass-heavy yet again as road dogs.MORE WEEK 5 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup builder Last week’s DraftKings cash ilneup hit on Christian McCaffrey and Kenny Golladay but got shredded by Sammy Watkins and Marlon Mack. The Vegas total and Darius Slay’s absence set up nicely for Watkins, while Mack was projected for positive game script and a heavy workload, before the Raiders went up and Mack watched from the sideline. No worries — we’ll go right back to McCaffrey while securing decent floors elsewhere in our daily fantasy football Week 5 cash lineup.We’re taking advantage of a Monday night development after prices were set to help us fill in the top running back and D/ST on Sunday main slate. FLEX Auden Tate, Bengals vs. Cardinals ($3,500). This free square let’s us fit a CMC and and Pats D. John Ross left the Monday nighter with an injury, and Tate has led Cincy in receiving yards over the past two weeks with 16 targets in that span.WEDNESDAY UPDATE: DST Titans vs. Bills ($3,000). It’s looking as if Josh Allen is out and we can save $1,300 off the Pats. Good defense catching mid-tier price at home against Josh Allen, who has multiple turnovers in other tough matchups this season.last_img read more
