Aubameyang scores a brace off the bench again as Ozil stars for Arsenal

Arsenal recorded their seventh league win on the spin as they came back from a goal down to defeat Leicester City in the final match of Gameweek 9 on Monday evening.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was named among the Arsenal substitutes for the second league match running but as was the case at Fulham in Gameweek 8, the Gabonese striker came off the bench to score a brace as Arsenal stepped up a gear in the second half.

There was an evening of frustration for owners of Alexandre Lacazette and James Maddison, however, with both players going within a whisker of delivering an attacking return but ultimately ending up blanking.

Hector Bellerin, owned by over 10% of Fantasy Premier League managers, had a mixed night as he registered two assists and a bonus point but also put past his own goalkeeper to give the Foxes the lead.

We round up all the goals, assists, Fantasy talking points and manager quotes from Arsenal’s tenth straight win in all competitions – plus an update on Jamie Vardy, who gingerly made his way from the field late in the match.

Arsenal 3-1 Leicester City

  • Goals: Mesut Ozil (£8.3m), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.7m) x2 | Hector Bellerin (£5.4m) own-goal
  • Assists: Hector Bellerin x2, Mesut Ozil | Ben Chilwell (£5.0m)

Alexandre Lacazette (£9.7m) has made a habit of defying the underlying attacking statistics in recent weeks, but the opposite happened on Monday evening in north London.

Lacazette recorded more penalty box touches and attempts on goal than any other player at the Emirates, but it was not to be the French striker’s night as he blanked for the first time since Gameweek 2. Lacazette’s penalty box touch count was, in fact, the most that any FPL forward managed in this round of matches.

The nadir was a glorious opportunity that he wasted from three yards on 77 minutes, passing the ball back into Kasper Schmeichel‘s (£5.0m) arms when it looked easier to score.

Lacazette also spooned over from a low Alex Iwobi (£5.5m) cross and had an attempt blocked after a suicidal back pass from Nampalys Mendy (£4.5m).

Despite the blank, it was an encouraging evening for Lacazette’s owners in that the French forward was continually finding himself in goal-scoring positions and would on another night perhaps have had two or three goals.

James Maddison‘s (£7.0m) ever-growing number of Fantasy owners experienced a similarly vexing evening, with the Leicester midfielder blanking for the second week in a row but coming within inches of leaving the Emirates with two assists.

Both of the “big chances” that Maddison created were predictably from set-pieces: Harry Maguire (£5.5m) drawing a fine low save from Bernd Leno (£4.8m) in the first half before Wilfred Ndidi (£4.9m) nodded against the crossbar after the break.

A slight irritation for Maddison’s owners is that the summer signing from Norwich City once again failed to complete 90 minutes for the eighth time in nine league matches.

Leicester were the better of the two teams for much of the first half, with Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.9m) going close early on with a shot that deflected off Rob Holding‘s (£4.4m) back before the Foxes were denied a penalty when the Arsenal centre-back handled the ball.

Ben Chilwell (£5.0m), who going into this match had created as many chances as Benjamin Mendy (£6.3m) this season but without any reward, deservedly put his side in front on the half hour when his cross was deflected by Hector Bellerin (£5.4m) past the helpless Leno.

Bellerin made amends just before half-time by crossing for Mesut Ozil (£8.3m) to equalise, with that goal sparking a second-half revival from the hitherto pedestrian Gunners.

Ozil turned in a superb performance in the second 45 minutes, assisting Arsenal’s third goal and playing a key part in his side’s second.

The ex-Germany international has now delivered three double-digit hauls in his last four appearances and is another Arsenal player who is making a mockery of those of us who place our faith in underlying statistics: all three of Ozil’s shots from Gameweek 5 onwards have resulted in goals.

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang (£10.7m) was the beneficiary of Ozil’s vision tonight. Named only as a substitute for the second league match in a row, Aubameyang came off the bench on the hour and scored twice within the next five minutes.

Both of the former Borussia Dortmund striker’s goals were simple tap-ins, the first from a Bellerin cross after the Spanish right-back had been set free by Ozil, and the second from the German schemer himself following a brilliant flowing Arsenal move.

It is difficult to know how to view Aubameyang as a Fantasy asset: seemingly uncertain of a starting berth but capable of doing damage off the bench, and having registered only six shots in the last four Gameweeks but scoring from five of them.

Unai Emery was asked if Arsenal’s brilliant third goal defined his philosophy:

It’s one way. For example, we watched the Watford game this morning and we repeated the second goal in this match. Starting with Leno, long ball which we won with the head with Danny (Welbeck) in the second action and then we are doing a speed attacking and also scoring.

This is another way. We can do a goal starting with all the passes and arriving in the box with these chances to score is very good because we can do one long pass.

Aaron Ramsey (£7.4m) didn’t enjoy the same good fortune as Aubameyang off the bench as he delivered a one-pointer for his 2.5% of FPL owners, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£6.9m) and Iwobi keeping their places in the starting XI either side of Lacazette.

Stephan Lichtsteiner (£4.6m) made his first Premier League start at left-back, with Emery revealing afterwards that Nacho Monreal (£5.5m) and Sead Kolasinac (£4.9m) were not risked due to minor injury problems:

Yesterday was a very bad day for our injuries because we lost two in the same position like Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal. They were in training with a small problem, but we did the group for today with both but this morning the news is they are not good to play.

We had another player to help us like Lichtsteiner today and Xhaka – he played 30 minutes at left-back – but for us, for our balance it’s better Nacho or Sead are OK to play in this position and we are going to look at how they are for the next matches, but I hope they can play on Thursday or shortly afterwards.

Sokratis (£5.2m) also missed out, with Emery giving this update on the Greek centre-back:

Sokratis, he trained yesterday. I think he can stay for Thursday and we are going to look because now with a lot of matches in a few days it’s important the players get the good preparation.

Leicester had their brief own injury concern during the game, with Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) – who failed to have a single shot all night – heading straight down the tunnel as the match drew to a close.

Claude Puel alleviated any fitness worries, however, saying Vardy’s withdrawal was due to illness:

Jamie was ill and he could not come back in the game and we finished with 10 men. You need to speak with him but I think he felt this in the second half. He seems ok.

Puel also discussed his deployment of a 5-2-3 system (off the ball), which saw Daniel Amartey (£4.4m) move to centre-half, Ricardo Pereira (£5.1m) patrol the opposite flank to Chilwell, and Maddison join Vardy and Iheanacho in a three-man press from the front:

We tried another system. They played with desire, with quality, good concentration and we put this team under pressure. I think they were surprised with our system and we had a lot of chances and quality with our play on the ground.

It’s a shame we didn’t have success in making the difference more in the first half. We conceded free-kicks before half-time on the break. It’s a shame.

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, Holding, Lichtsteiner (Aubameyang 61′); Torreira, Xhaka; Mkhitaryan (Guendouzi 61′), Ozil (Ramsey 80′), Iwobi; Lacazette.

Leicester City XI (5-2-3): Schmeichel; Chilwell, Amartey, Maguire, Evans, Pereira (Ghezzal 69′); Ndidi, Mendy; Maddison (Okazaki 75′), Iheanacho (Albrighton 61′), Vardy.

      Nope. Stay away from United players.

    2. Lovren an elevator

      Pogba to Richarlison then upgrade deeney to arnie?

      1. chelseabrad
        • 4 Years

        Already have Maddison though, do I really wanna double up on Everton mids?

        1. Lovren an elevator
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 1 day ago

          I'd say definitely don't double up on Everton midfield. Luckily for you, Maddison plays for Leicester tho....and is embarking on a very favourable run of fixtures...

          1. chelseabrad
            • 4 Years

            Absolute brain fart moment LOL cheers!

  6. flynner25

    11 months, 1 day ago

    Lost on last page

    Is Holding going to keep his place in the Arsenal starting 15?

    Thinking of doing if he is.

    Mane, King, Alonso -> Hazard, Arnie and Holding

    Also looking at Holebas and Zabaleta

    All of this is dependent on injury news for Mané and Hazard during the week.

    1. athreya
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Holding won’t play once Sokratis is back. Plus Koscielny should be back in November. So holding will at best be an unused sub for Arsenal.

      1. flynner25
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Thanks for that.

    2. dadoune30
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Sokratis is ok for this GW but i think Holding is ahead of him now.. He might get 1 or 2 more games before Kosc is back in 1st team.. Kosc returned to training this week..

  7. FredrikH
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    Kane Billing -> Martial Vardy? Temping looking at fixtures (Vardy) and form (Martial).

    1. athreya
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      That form is quite fleeting. Difficult to say without rest of team.

  8. Jayben23
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    ANyone have that google sheets link for the premier league schedule , showing when teams have blanks, double GW, FA cup, champs league etc.

  9. mike09
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 1 day ago

    Would really appreciate some thoughts and ideas.
    Got 3.7 ITB and 2 FT but not sure what to prioritize.

    Patricio
    Alonso - Robbo - Mendy
    Mane - Hazard - Richa - Maddison
    Aguero - Wilson - Ings

    Martinez - Knockaert - Bennett - AWB

    a) Mane, Knockaert > Salah, Kenedy (then Wilson > Arnie before GW 11)
    b) Knockaert > 8.4 (then Wilson > Arnie before GW 11)
    c) Something else.

    1. Bagheri Arce
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      I like A) although surely you only just brought in Knockheart and he's getting the boot now? Still had good fixtures

  10. The Beer Baron
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    Struggling with what to do with this
    Kane and Gudmundsson seem to be biggest concerns

    Ederson - Speroni
    Bennett - Robertson - Mendy - AWB - Alonso
    Hazard - Gudmundsson - Richarlison - Fraser - Hojberg
    Aguero - Kane - Mitrovic

    2FT 0.3 itb

    1. RustyBz
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Kane -> Arnie/Wilson & Gudmondsson -> Mané/Salah

      1. Bagheri Arce
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        This

      2. The Beer Baron
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Don't fancy Mane
        can do salah + Iheanacho ? ?

        1. RustyBz
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 1 day ago

          Iheneacho is a bad pick in my opinion. You need a Liverpool attacking player in your team, so get Salah.

          1. The Beer Baron
            • 4 Years
            11 months, 1 day ago

            with salah i have a budget of 5.9 for a striker
            do you think the likes of Jiménez and Ings will outscore Iheneacho?

  11. Pras United
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    Lots of folks getting Martial.

    1) It will take one defeat/bad performance for Martial to lose his place
    2) Sanchez and Lingard back means he could anyway be rotated (especially if he plays tonight)

    This is such a short term punt it will end in tears. Just a question of when.

    1. Lovren an elevator
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      This.
      Stay away from United.

    Hey guys, best fwd for 6.4 or less? Looks like Wilson, King, Ings, Jimenez are the only options?

    Cheers

    3. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Wilson (fulham) this week then swap to Arnie

  13. Bubz
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    Took a big failure of a -8 last week but think I should be able to save a FT this as a result of it.

    Allison
    Robbo, Trippier, Doherty
    Salah(C), Hazard, Maddison, Richarlison
    Aguero, Mitrovic, Arnautovic

    4.0, AWB, Gunnarson, 3.9.............0.00ITB

    Save FT or get rid of Tripps or something?

    1. RustyBz
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Looks solid for the weekend. I'd look at Mendy week after

    2. Pras United
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      good to go!

    3. Play Pal
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      I'd bank that FT

    4. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Tripper out is a safe move, can't see you wanting him in three of the next five games.

      1. Bubz
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Just not sure who to get. Currently, 0.1m off Mendy annoyingly

        1. Eden Wizard
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 1 day ago

          It'll be 0.2 before long 😉

        2. HamezMace
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 1 day ago

          Yeah Mendy would be the obvious choice, but assumed you couldn't afford him.
          I mean, it's unconventional, but I'd probably look at a cheap option with solid fixtures...Brighton, Newcastle, West Ham offer some decent picks, just not sure where you'd spend the banked funds in the future?

          1. Eden Wizard
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 1 day ago

            Mitro out after Hudds i'd imagine

            1. HamezMace
              • 5 Years
              11 months, 1 day ago

              Yes, but to who, 8.5m offers nothing in the forwards market.

    5. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Yeah it would be save or get rid of Trips.

    6. Eden Wizard
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Nice team! Beaut front 7.

      1. Bubz

    Nailed & Ninety
    Based on how the players have been managed in the 9 GW's to date, who would be in your team on the basis that they are nailed AND probably get 90 minutes each match (ignore injuries and bans). Using your current budget and normal FPL rules, what sort of team could you put down that would have minimal rotation risk for the rest of the season and could perform, leaving you with only the Captaincy and benching decisions to make each week?
    Here is my first attempt:
    Ryan Fab
    Doherty Alonso Robbo Duffy VVD
    Salah Maddison Fernandinho Hazard Fraser
    Mitrovic Lacazette Arnautovic

    Thoughts?

    • 5 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    An old classic but maybe worth bringing up...

    Liverpool have CAR and FUL in next 3 (and a wobbly at the back Arsenal). Can Mane and Firmino 'cover' Salah over this period? Normally I would say no but Salah is not at last season level by any stretch atm...

      Why spend 19.0 (9.7 + 9.3) to cover a 12.8 player?

      1. GARY AND JAMIE
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Team structure/balance, I have Kane so that money needs diverting and you normally get what you pay for...

        I'd be looking at KDB/Arnie for these two after this too good to miss Pool run...

      If Salah, Mane and Firmino play the full 90 of their 3 next fixtures, then yes I would expect Mane and Firmino's combined points to outscore Salah

      1. XabiAlonso
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        They have to outscore Salah and a 6m striker

      Game of individuals so this doesn't really make sense

    How did Maddison look against Arsenal? Should i still be looking to bring him in for Fraser after this weekend or should i be looking elsewhere?

    1. Lemongrab
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Lively, on set pieces and could have easily had 2 assists

    2. SackWenger
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      I was at the game last night and was in a position where Maddison was on my bench. As an Arsenal fan i was very keen for him to stay quiet.

      He looked threatening throughout and quite classy. Excellent delivery and appetite for the game and could easily have had some assist points. Saw enough to ensure that he remains in my team.

      I would get him in especially with the kind fixtures where you would think there will be more set-pieces against the easier opposition.

        Brilliant, thank you!

    Current defence

    Alonso - Pereira - TAA - AWB - Doherty

    Whats your thoughts on:
    TAA -> Lovren
    Pereira -> Mendy

    1. Eytexi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Gomez surely more nailed than Lovren, being able to play RB and CB? Pereira to Mendy maybe wait a week, but yes, good moves.

      Get Robbo in for TAA somehow

    2. Narcos Alonso
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Hold your FT till GW 11 then do
      Robbo in for TAA
      Cash out on Fraser for Camarassa or Kayal bench fodder

  23. JWilson3

    Should I do Zaha to Arnie this week or hold the transfer till next week? Might be making this up but doesn't Zaha have a good record against Arsenal?

    1. denial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yeah probably

  24. denial

    Would anyone be tempted by a -4 to get Robbo in long term?

    Fraser&TAA out for Billing&Robbo?

      Obvs dependant on game tomorrow night.

    Well that was one terrible Gameweeks. Hoping it was just a blip, rather than needing a squad overhaul. Already made one transfer (Walker to Mendy). Is there anything in here worth -4? TAA is the big concern at the moment.

    Patricio
    Alonso TAA Mendy
    Salah (C) Hazard Maddison Richarlison
    Aguero Mitro Arnie

    Hamer AWB Bennett Hojbjerg

    1. Narcos Alonso

      Use Bennett as first sub

  26. Jay Arell

    Anyone in here rate Gudmundsson going forward? On set-pieces, Burnley looking like they might be hitting their stride again (disregarding City). Thinking of maybe swapping with Fraser after next GW.

  27. umerlfc

    Vardy a great option considering the fixtures? Thoughts? Thinking about Kane -> Vardy and banking the cash

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      What about Maddison for 2.0 cheaper, or Nacho for 3.0 cheaper?

      1. umerlfc
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Already own Maddison. Thinking about doubling up. Leicester's fixtures are too good

    2. Blind Ghost
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      He was in my plans but watching him last night kinda put me off him. Not because he blanked but he didn't seem to do anything.

      1. umerlfc
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Not considering the fact that it was Arsenal away?

    3. Pointless
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      That’s my plan. Though Auba is catching the eye - if probably unsustainable.

    Should I use the WC?

    Current Team:

    Dubravka*
    Walker* Robbo TAA* Alonso
    Hazard Richa Fraser* Sterling*
    Arnie Aguero

    Subs: Hamer, WanB, Hughes*, Kamara*

    Wondering whether to clear my faults TAA Sterling Dubravka (-8) with the WC:

    (7 changes)

    Fab
    Mendy Robbo Duffy Alonso
    Hazard Richa Maddy Salah
    Arnie Aguero

    Subs: Hamer, WanB, Murphy, Success

    1. XabiAlonso
      • 4 Years

      I'd wildcard

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Why sell Sterling?

      1. HD7
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Salah

        1. HD7
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 1 day ago

          Salah will be C
          Sterling will be in the shadows of Aguero

    3. Jay Arell

      Time for the WC yes
