Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has a strong case for inclusion in Fantasy Premier League squads for 2018/19, while some of his Arsenal team-mates look set to show improvements too.
These are some of the findings of our first FPL members’ article of the summer, in which we analyse each team’s historical data to assess their prospects for the new season.
We have looked at the team’s attacking and defending statistics and delved even deeper with a specific look at both the goal-threat and creativity of individual players.
The potential impact of new signings and, in Arsenal’s case, a new manager has been factored into our research as well, to give us the most accurate picture for 2018/19.
The Gunners came sixth place in 2017/18, their worst-ever finish in Arsene Wenger’s time in north London, recording their highest ever goals conceded tally in the Premier League era too (51).
It seemed a fitting time for Wenger to step down after 22 years at the helm with Paris Saint Germain manager Unai Emery replacing him.
However, there were encouraging signs going forward, with the aforementioned Aubameyang the focal point of those improvements.
