Valencia is starting Wednesday at Southampton.

Valencia will get another start with Diafra Sakho, as Andy Carroll is relegated to the bench with an ankle injury. However, Saints have been excellent at home this season, making Valencia a tough play in daily formats.

Enner Valencia: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

January 31, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia is in the starting XI for Saturday's match against Liverpool at Anfield.

Diafra Sakho returned to score in last weekend's FA Cup match, but he is left out of the squad Saturday and Valencia will continue to start in his place next to Andy Carroll.

Valencia was the man of the match Sunday, assisting on West Hamís first two goals in their 3-0 victory over Hull City.

It was the most comfortable Valencia has looked in the claret and blue. He added four shots (two on target), five crosses, four drawn fouls, two completed dribbles, and a key pass as he flashed creativity both on the wing and tucking inside the formation.

Valencia started in place of the injured Diafra Sakho and managed to register just one shot before being removed in the 70th minute of Saturday's 1-1 draw with Swansea City.

The talented Ecuadorian's momentum from a great World Cup has certainly cooled, and his chemistry with Andy Carroll has yet to appear. With Diafra Sakho's status looking uncertain for the next few matches, Valencia will hope to take advantage of the increased opportunity and turn things around.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia was substituted into Tuesday's match against West Brom in the 65th minute to mark his return to action after missing last weekend's match against Newcastle.

The striker did not start, but his return to play about 25 minutes is good news after he failed to recover quickly enough from international duty to play last weekend.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce gave his weekly injury update Thursday and did not list Valencia (knock) as being close to playing Saturday against Newcastle. Big Sam specifically noted that Stewart Downing (knee) and Cheik Kouyate (knee) trained Thursday, but that the rest of the injured players, including Valencia, "have got a chance but it's a slimmer chance than we expected," to face Newcastle.

The specifics of Valencia's injury is still cloudy, but what we do know is that he's been unable to play sine coming off in the 74th minute of West Ham's Premier League match against Aston Villa on Nov. 8. If he is unable to play against Newcastle, Andy Carroll will start up front again, with Diafra Sakho also a big injury doubt. Valencia is in danger of missing a number of matches, as West Ham will play in three times by next Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia scored West Ham's second goal in a 3-1 victory over Burnley on Saturday.

Valencia has taken a backseat to Diafra Sakho in terms of goalscoring, but he's still arguably the most talented attacking player on the team. With two goals through seven fixtures, Valencia will try to get another one in the back of the net against the Citizens next Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia scored his first Premier League goal in West Ham's 2-2 draw against Hull City on Monday.

Valencia scored on a fine individual effort to tie the game at 1-1. Now that he's match fit, the striker is expected to be a regular in the starting XI for the Hammers going forward.
