Scout Notes – Champions League – Wednesday

Arsenal’s annual Champions League exit appears imminent following a chastening night in Bavaria, with a hamstring issue for popular Fantasy asset Laurent Koscielny merely compounding the misery.

Bayern Munich 5 Arsenal 1

An injury to defender Laurent Koscielny prompted a second-half capitulation of epic proportions as Arsenal were blown away by Bayern.

Alexis Sanchez had earlier given the Gunners huge hope that they could take the tie back to The Emirates with all still to play for when he finished with aplomb when his initial effort from the spot was saved.

But once Koscielny departed with a hamstring problem early in the second half, Arsenal’s resolve dissolved and three goals in ten chaotic minutes quickly followed.

The Frenchman has started all bar the first match of the season in the league for the Gunners. They conceded four that day – their worst defensive performance of the campaign until last night’s debacle.

The only crumb of comfort for the 16.9% of managers who own the centre-half is that he has until March 4 to recover as Arsenal will sit out Gameweek 26 because of Southampton’s involvement in the EFL Cup final. Those who were contemplating selling him, due to that blank and a Gameweek 27 trip to Liverpool, may well have had their minds made up by this latest set-back.

Kieran Gibbs – at 4.7 a cheap way into the Arsenal defence – was given back-to-back starts for the first time this season.

But Arsenal’s left side proved to be a rich source of attacking joy for Bayern all night and it would be no surprise if Nacho Monreal is returned to the starting XI in the league, if not for Monday’s FA Cup tie at Sutton.

Two regular midfielders, Mesut Ozil and Alex Iwobi, also failed to impress.

The 6.5%-owned Ozil has just three assists and no goals since Gameweek 15, while Iwobi (3.2%) has started the last nine league matches, providing two goals and a pair of assists.

Beleaguered manager Arsene Wenger has options in midfield and Iwobi, in particular, looks vulnerable either to a like-for like swap with Theo Walcott or a re-jig involving Sanchez moving back from his successful stint up front.

Arsenal’s post-Gameweek 27 schedule is generally a favourable one all the way through to the very end of April. But only the ever-reliable Sanchez currently inspires confidence in a team whose limitations were otherwise exposed by a ruthless Bayern.

The second leg with Bayern sits three days after the Gameweeek 27 trip to Anfield, although it’s surely unlikely that Wenger will allow that to influence his teamsheet and approach for the Liverpool clash.

Arsenal XI: Ospina, Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny (Gabriel 49), Gibbs, Xhaka, Coquelin (Giroud 77), Iwobi (Walcott 66), Ozil, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sanchez.
Subs not used: Cech, Monreal, Welbeck, Elneny.

        Just out of interest, I'm hopeful that the FPL show tonight will feature the angle used to decipher the McAuley touch on the Evans header.

              Well given that there are many who believe it was a completely ridiculous decision, I think it's worthwhile clearing it up, particuarly as MOTD have not shown any angles that highlight it. Can't really discuss the Gameweek without mentioning it.

                  Fair enough, I guess as a non-owner of any of the protagonists I am more bored of it than most.

              I assume you've seen WBA's tweet, Mark? I know it's the same angle as TV just slowed down and blown up

                That does show the touch but I believe there is a side on angle that's even better. It's actually a pretty significant touch and even talk that Evans' header may not have been on target.

              Looking at the slow mo replay again, that was a really sh*te header by Evans. 😆

              That would be good if there's an even better angle than the West Brom one.

              Also please thank the person who put out this tweet - https://twitter.com/OfficialFPL/status/831276907245223938

              My hopes have been dashed. I clung onto a tiny thread of belief but it's time to let it go. 12 point swing on a ML leader just 18 points ahead of me for big cash. It hurts but the FPL gods giveth and taketh away.

              What if McAuley had had a 'number 1 all over' haircut on the morning of the game?

              Is the "touch" the fluttering of his hair as the ball sails over his head?

            Arsenal spent £96m this summer on players.

            Unbelievable.

                Xhaka is a let down with his discipline. To be fair to Mustafi, he's good and has the potential to be great, just in a bad patch atm like most of them are. Perez needs to start imo

                  and City £162 million - even more unbelievable.

                  So many Prem clubs seem unable to address clear weaknesses which have been apparent for years.

                Heaton - Robinson
                Alonso - Baines - McAuley - Amat - Ake
                Sanchez - Alli - Eriksen - Sigurdsson - Phillips
                Ibrahimovic - Lukaku - Carroll

                A, Sanchez -> Hazard

                    Keep "real" football off FFS!

                      I view it as a counterweight. I work with mainly programmers, so it's easy to be the bigshot--when Arsenal win, I focus on that, else FPL becomes the talking point.

                                      And played him 😎

                                      In fact I have Robertson, Yoshida & Fernadez in the land of pricey defenders.

                                      No Alonso (or Chelsea def), no Coleman, no Brunt, no Walker/Rose 😮

                                      Ferdo 0.3m cheaper and more of a differential 😀

                                      But I would probably go Manson if I had the cash.

                                      Hard to say for sure but IMO he's a likely starter.

                                    So as we run into the last few weeks of Wenger's reign, do we expect Arsenal players to step up and try to give him a decent farewell, or just fold like they have repeatedly done over the years?

                                    Apart from Sanchez & Kos that is.

                                      Perhaps the most boring choice so far

                                      A) Kingsley > Robertson (4-3-3)
                                      B) Save and play Fletcher (3-4-3)

                                          as a Robertson owner, I'd say him.

                                          what to do here:
                                          A. ibra to lukaku, save a transfer and play pieters (tot)
                                          B. Diomande and sanchez to lukaku and snodgrass and go back to 3-4-3

                                          leaning towards b as ibra has the better gw27 fixture.
                                          happy to get sanchez back in 29 for a hit.

                                            I'd go B, looking at Sanchez & Defoe > Siggy/Snoddy & Lukaku myself.

                                            Almost certainly my transfers before deadline unless injuries etc.

                                                      I reckon you can still turn over a 150pt lead depending on above.

                                                          I'd drop heaton and bank the cash, play Jaku all the way to the end, good form and fixtures. I reckon he'll outscore Heaton from now on

                                                          Would you take a -4 to change 2 players that don't play (Holgate and Ake) to two players that do play (2 of Coleman, Robertson and Mawson) and will also play both the GW26 and 28 blanks? The other option is changing one of them and also Anichebe but I don't like any of the strikers who will play for GW26 and 28 (Carroll and Llorente - I have Lukaku already). Any advice would be appreciated!

                                                              Probably. 2 non-starters is a waste and net transfer cost likely not negative. As you say, still have to weigh up against other transfer options though.

                                                                      They are cheap and replacing a non-starter, so no a big impact on your team to get starters for 28

I am going to wait anyway as Borough may well not qualify in which case Defoe becomes available as an option but if not I want to be planning ahead.

                                                                        1. Jafooli
