Scout Notes

Fraser and Wilson blank as Emery experiments with wing-back system

Our second Scout Notes article from Gameweek 13 focuses on the events at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday afternoon, as Bournemouth slumped to a third successive 2-1 defeat and Arsenal extended their unbeaten league run to 11 matches.

Alexandre Lacazette was missing with a groin strain as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang proved to be Arsenal’s match-winner, while David Brooks demonstrated his value in midfield with an assist – though Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson emerged from the Cherries’ loss with nothing more than appearance points.

We round up the goals, assists, injury news, manager quotes and Fantasy talking points from an end-to-end encounter on the south coast.

Bournemouth 1-2 Arsenal

  • Goals: Joshua King (£6.3m) | Jefferson Lerma (£4.5m) own-goal, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m)
  • Assists: David Brooks (£5.1m) | Sead Kolasinac (£4.9m) x2

It seems to be every other week that we make mention of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang‘s (£10.9m) paradoxical performances in our Scout Notes.

The Gabonese forward, not for the first time this season, was peripheral for much of the match, feeding on scraps for long periods and wasting what few opportunities he was presented with.

Aubameyang had sliced wide from six yards from a corner-kick in the first half then blazed over from the edge of the box on 64 minutes, but once again the former Borussia Dortmund striker was to get on the scoresheet in the second half of a league match when he tapped in Sead Kolasinac‘s (£4.9m) low ball with a quarter of the game remaining.

Aubameyang has an incredible knack of popping up with a goal when delivering an otherwise so-so performance and his success is sometimes difficult to fathom from both an eye-test and underlying statistics perspective.

The Arsenal forward – who has admittedly been deployed on the left flank in recent months – has had less than half the number of attempts on goal and shots in the box that Sergio Aguero (£11.5m) has registered this season, but Aubameyang’s winning strike on Sunday moved him alongside the Manchester City striker at the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts.

Aubameyang was deployed centrally at the Vitality Stadium in a 3-4-3/3-4-2-1, with the injured Alexandre Lacazette (£9.4m) not risked by Unai Emery.

The Arsenal boss explained his decision:

Yesterday Lacazette felt a small injury and also we need Aubameyang and Nketiah. Today the most important thing for us is that not only did Aubameyang score for us, he was also working in the 90 minutes. He helped us in all the things, the tactical moments and the defensive moments.

The Gunners meet only Liverpool of the “big six” between Gameweeks 16 and 22, with their fixture swing likely to attract Fantasy investment over the Christmas period.

Aubameyang – and Lacazette – must surely enter the premium forward equation at this point, in spite of what we have often seen on the pitch and in the members’ tables.

Perhaps crucially, the Gabonese forward’s goal conversion rate is hovering – as it did last season – around 30%, marking him out as the most clinical big-money striker in the division.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£6.7m) and Alex Iwobi (£5.5m) flanked Aubameyang in attack, and those simply looking at the attacking KPIs from this encounter on the south coast would have been impressed with the Armenian midfielder’s numbers.

In reality, though, Mkhitaryan had an afternoon to forget.

Despite 11 penalty box touches and seven shots on goal, the former Manchester United man lacked any conviction or confidence in attack, only hitting the target with one of his efforts and fluffing his lines in several presentable situations.

Mkhitaryan’s afternoon was summed up on 69 minutes when Aubameyang sent him through on goal, only for the chance to go begging when the Armenian first took a heavy touch and then completely mishit a shot tamely wide.

Iwobi was busy down the left flank without ever looking a real menace and in reality, it was perhaps Lacazette who came out of this match with his reputation enhanced, with his presence missed in the Arsenal frontline.

It will be interesting to see if Emery perseveres with a 3-4-3 when Lacazette is fit, with Aubameyang set to move over to the left flank and one of Mkhitaryan or Iwobi to drop out in whatever system he chooses going forward.

A victim of this formation change is Mesut Ozil (£8.3m), who was only among the substitutes at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday.

While Ozil could potentially line up in one of the front three positions, he is undoubtedly more effective when playing in “the hole” behind a central striker. A 3-4-3 certainly doesn’t seem a good fit for Arsenal’s biggest wage-earner.

Emery said of the German midfielder’s omission:

We thought how we can be better in the match today which is very demanding with the physicality and the intensity – but every player is important. Also today we tried with three centre-backs like we’ve done at some stages this season and it’s another possibility for us to improve and find our best performance.

Two beneficiaries of Emery’s tactical experiment were their full-backs.

Kolasinac was the headline-grabber with two assists, with Arsenal’s opener coming from the Bosnian defender’s cut-back that Jefferson Lerma (£4.5m) smashed past his own goalkeeper.

No Premier League player in any position registered more penalty box touches than Kolasinac in Gameweek 12, underscoring just how prominent the Arsenal wing-back was in Bournemouth’s area.

Only Mkhitaryan had more touches in the final third than Kolasinac in this match, with the Bosnia and Herzegovina international firing into the side netting with a chance on 78 minutes having had a presentable opportunity with his head midway through the first half.

Hector Bellerin (£5.4m) got into plenty of threatening positions too, registering as many penalty box touches as Aubameyang and Callum Wilson (£6.8m) managed at the Vitality Stadium – though without much end product.

From an attacking perspective, both Bellerin and Kolasinac are tempting mid-price options for the fixture shift in Gameweek 16.

Unfortunately, though, the Gunners offer precious little in the way of clean sheet potential (it’s now just two shut-outs in 13 Premier League matches) and Emery’s side were often exposed down the flanks, particularly when the Cherries hit them on the break.

Bournemouth’s equaliser on the stroke of half-time indeed came from a counter-attack after an Arsenal corner.

Emery discussed his switch to a wing-back system after full-time:

We played like that in pre-season and in Qarabag, and it was an opportunity for us to find our best performance, best system and best combinations.

For example today there was Sead Kolasinac and Alex Iwobi which is a very interesting combination. Also when we are pushing with Hector Bellerin wide we need some players for balance.

The most important thing for us is finding balance in the defensive moments because we are conceding more goals than we want, but we don’t want to lose our good performances in attacking moments with scoring and the players performances.

But we need to improve and we need to do more.

From a Bournemouth perspective, their performance mirrored the one given in their 2-1 home defeat to Manchester United earlier this month: full of effort, occasionally threatening but ultimately outclassed.

Joshua King (£6.3m) came back into the side alongside Wilson up front, with David Brooks (£5.1m) moving over to the right flank to accommodate the Norwegian’s return to the Bournemouth attack.

Brooks and King combined for the Cherries’ leveller, building on good work from Wilson and Ryan Fraser (£6.2m) after a swift breakaway from the home side.

Brooks’ move back to the right of midfield didn’t dent his attacking threat too much and indeed he had what looked like a perfectly good goal ruled out for offside on eight minutes, before driving a low shot at Bernd Leno (£4.8m) that the German goalkeeper comfortably held.

The Wales international was also only a yard or so away from connecting with Fraser’s whipped cross after the break.

Brooks’ assist means he is now narrowly outscoring Fraser over the last eight Gameweeks, by 35 FPL points to 33.

Fraser’s performance, while full of industry and far from awful, was worrying from a Fantasy perspective, with the Scottish winger not registering a single key pass and only having one effort on goal – a free-kick from out wide – in his 90-minute showing.

That he only recorded one penalty box touch was indicative of how on the fringes he was when Bournemouth were mounting their attacks.

Set-piece duties remain a valued weapon in his armoury but the tricky Brooks looks the bigger threat in open play and, at £5.1m, is eminently more “benchable” for trips to Manchester City, Spurs, Manchester United and perhaps Wolves, plus the visit of Liverpool, in the next seven Gameweeks.

Wilson blanked on Sunday too, not really having any clear sights of goal and perhaps being outshone by King, though Howe paid tribute to both of his strikers after the game:

Joshua King did well physically today and added a different dimension to the front line, working well with Callum Wilson. I was very impressed, they were a threat in the opening period. They pinned the centre-backs back and gave them a problem in behind.

The goal was great from my perspective, defending deep and transitioning into a clinical finish at the end of a counter attack, so it’s a shame for them we didn’t get anything from the match.

Nothing went right for Lerma on Sunday, with the Colombian midfielder hitting the post from distance in the second half after his comical own-goal in the opening 45 minutes.

His afternoon was summed up when he picked up his fifth yellow card of the season, meaning that he will miss the trip to the Etihad next weekend.

Charlie Daniels (£4.2m) came in for the injured Adam Smith (£4.5m) in Howe’s only other change to his starting XI.

Emery meanwhile downplayed any injury worries surrounding Lucas Torreira (£4.9m), who had a solid game in central midfield before his withdrawal on 79 minutes:

He said to us that he was a little tired and that there was a possibility. He was giving us good balance but also we have to be clever because he played with the national team for two matches and sometimes you need to listen to the player when they sometimes need rest. This change was because we need to give him a rest.

Bournemouth XI (4-4-2): Begovic; Francis, Cook, Ake, Daniels; Brooks (Stanislas 72′), Gosling (Cook 72′), Lerma, Fraser; Wilson, King (Mousset 80′).

Arsenal XI (3-4-3): Leno; Mustafi, Sokratis, Holding; Bellerin, Torreira (Guendouzi 78′), Xhaka, Kolasinac; Mhitatyan, Iwobi (Ramsey 80′); Aubameyang (Nketiah 90′).

    Anyone else giving Hazard one last chance? At home to bottom of the table Fulham who've conceded 33 goals...

    1. Smurf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      He’s got 11 attacking returns in the 12 games he’s featured in. Why would he be in the last chance saloon?

      1. Clickzy
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        Sterling's returns are outrageous

    2. jia you jia you
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      crazy to sell him before Fulham imo!

      1. Clickzy
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        Not going to, lots of talk of people shipping him for Sterling this week though which is a bit crazy

        1. Duffy Dunk
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 24 days ago

          Sterling on the bench in gw14.

  2. Bookkeeper
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 24 days ago

    Anyone looking to bring in Zaha, next four are:

    Burnley (H), Brighton (A), West Ham (A), Leicester (H)

    1. Nascimento
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      No.

      He’s still Zaha.

      1. Victor I Need Ya Bae
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        Definitely no

  3. jia you jia you
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 24 days ago

    Anybody else going 2 x 4.5 double pivet mids?
    For me it allows owning Aguero + Sterling + Kane + Hazard in attack and Ederson + Alonso + Robertson + Digne in defence.

    1. Smurf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      I’ve got two, although one is Kamara but the same principle

      Allows my front line to be:

      Salah / Hazard / Sane / Richarlison
      Arnie / Kane (transferring for Firmino this GE)

      1. jia you jia you
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        Think we will need a fully playing bench now that the fixtures are started to come quick and fast, I've Camarasa and Billing who I wouldnt expect much in the way of returns but at least they are starters.

    2. MTPockets
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      No because upcoming fixture congestion so wouldn't want to rely on them subbing in.

      1. jia you jia you
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        Fair point but I think it's worth the gamble if it allows to own those four attackers

        1. MTPockets
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 24 days ago

          Quite possibly - includes Kane at least, who plays every game he can

  4. wildnothing
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 24 days ago

    If you had to drop Hazard Richarlison Martial or Salah for Sané who would you drop? 2.6 itb.

    Fabianski 4.0
    Doherty TAA Balbuena Robbo AWB
    Hazard Salah Richarlison Martial Kenedy
    Agüero Arnautovic Jimenez

    1. MTPockets
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Rich, assuming Hazard's fit.

      1. Victor I Need Ya Bae
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        This

  5. Rust Cohle
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 24 days ago

    Any Arnautovic injury news?

    1. korbendallas82

      • 5 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      https://www.claretandhugh.info/arnautovic-injury-update/

      He should be ready for Newcastle. It has Nothing to do with the old knee injury, witch he has had pain problems with.

      1. We Will Klopp you
        • 2 Years

        Good news, cheers for that.

  6. davies

    Which option from next week onwards lads?

    A) Kane Doherty Peltier
    B) Aguero Doherty Kolasinac
    C) Aguero TAA Vinagre

    Patricio
    Alonso / Robertson / ***** / ***** / AWB
    Sterling / Hazard / Mane / Richarlison / Fraser
    ***** / Arnie / Kamara

    Cheers.

  7. waldo666

    I see quite allot of people are making plans for Kane for GW 15 including quite a few WCs to do so. Not much been said about Eriksen, back fit and firing and a good chunk cheaper.

    Is it mainly that Kane presents a better captain option, is (can be) more 'explosive'? I seem to always favour Eriksen over Kane when looking to get some Spurs in, probably a little bit of internal bias on my part (I find it hard to cheer Kane on) but keen to hear others line of thinking.

    1. Spiders in Diapers
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Not very appealing if Trippier also shares dead balls

      1. waldo666
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah fair call, definitely loses some appeal if sharing.

    2. MTPockets
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Kane isn't yet in my plans, but if I get him over a mid will be mostly due to nailedness over xmas.

      1. waldo666
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        Security of starts is a good one. I guess I can't see anywhere I would be happy to downgrade to fund him, would have to be Salah I think but I suppose it's not like he's offering up much value right now.

        1. MTPockets
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 24 days ago

          Same. If Jesus starts a PL game I'll consider losing Aguero, but until then not esp concerned. His ownership is still pretty low (15.6% for active players, 0.9% top 10k)

    3. jia you jia you
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      its the captaincy, good run of fixtures, on pens, main man and sure starter

      1. waldo666
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        All good points. Try not to follow the crowd too much but my stubbornness in these matters has brought me unstuck on more than one occasion!

    4. maglia rosa
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Just comes down to who i think is the very best option from a good side with good fixtures and the Captaincy does have a bearing on that. I then try to get him in, in this case Eriksen is a great 'cheaper' way into that good team and looks an equal (ish) option.

      1. waldo666
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        Cheers.

    5. DeathAngel
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Why do you not like cheering Kane on, but you don't mind cheering Eriksen on?

      1. waldo666
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        Fair question, I really like watching Eriksen play, when he's at his best he is a joy to behold. I dunno with Kane, I think allot stems from FPL tbh. I was stubborn getting him in when he burst onto the scene and then again the year following. That of course is all on me but can't help the way my mind works! Then all that stuff about appealing to claim that goal last season just put me over the edge, came across as a sooky little kid and that rubbed me up the wrong way.

        1. DeathAngel
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 24 days ago

          Fair enough. 🙂

    6. Joggers Nipple
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Looking more at Son myself as have Haz, Salah and Aguero and will capt them fine over next mid term fixtures

      1. waldo666
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        That makes sense, I too have those 3 you mention so yeah even if I did get Kane in I wouldn't be captaining him every week.

    7. noquarternt
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Kane is as nailed as you can get, on pens and their main outlet.

      Eriksen and Alli are also really high quality.

      All are good but we all know Kane is the best captaincy option from them.

  8. Ross From Friends
    6 months, 24 days ago

    Offsides this season:
    Bournemouth - 16
    Alvaro Morata - 18

    1. Ynwalfc

      LOL

  9. Joggers Nipple
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 24 days ago

    Slowly drifting from 20k to 80k over the last few weeks with this team.
    Sterling? A plan to get Son? Time to get rid of Lacca even if fixtures turning?
    I know to wait on Arnie/ Haz news but overall any advice on this team really appreciated-

    Patricio
    Duffy TAA Laporte
    Fraser Salah Hazard Richarlason
    Aguero Arnie Lacca

    Hamer Balbena Wan B Hojeburg 0 ITB 1FT

    Thanks for any thoughts

    1. Devils-Red
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Concerned about Spurs fixtures as well and whether Arnie’s knee can hold up with a busy period of games.

      I’m personally thinking of changing him to Auba as well. See below.

    2. MTPockets
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Team looks ok. Unlucky with Lacazette this week. Next 2 aren't great but think I'd keep if he's fit.
      I've crumbled on avoiding City mids. They're scoring too many goals to pass up.
      Think Spurs mid or Kane will become an issue, but not yet for me.

      Similar story! I take the risk and don't get rewarded, I play safe and don't get the benefits. Sometimes it comes off, sometimes it doesn't

      I've taken the Risk on Sterling this week after holding off last week. Seems like I had to get em

    Salah > Sterling, if with Mo at home?
    Have 2FTs to spend.

    1. Devils-Red
      6 months, 24 days ago

      I would do it after GW14. Salah is consistent in home games and like to monitor if Sterling will be rotated.

    2. jdp219

      *even with Mo...

  11. Devils-Red

    Which team would u rather have from GW16?

    1)
    Hennessey
    Rob - Alonso - TAA - Doherty
    Sterling - Sane - Eriksen - Sigurdsson
    Aguero - Arnautovic

    Hamer - Camarasa - AWB - Success

    2)
    Hennessey
    Rob - Alonso - TAA - Doherty
    Sterling - Eriksen - Son - Billing
    Aguero - Aubameyang

    Hamer - Camarasa - AWB - Success

    1. Joggers Nipple

    1. We Will Klopp you
      • 2 Years

      I'm taking the plunge, can always be reversed in 3-4 gws if necessary.

    2. waldo666
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Hazard might make it through and give you another day to contemplate and hopefully get some more news on his injury.

    Which Arsenal players are you considering from GW16 onwards?

    Looks like no midfield options to me!?

    1. We Will Klopp you
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      None, none of them are reliable enough, wouldn't captain their forwards due to consistency problems (more the team rather than them) & Auba being reverse oop, the midfielders are inconsistent and constantly rotated and I still don't trust their defence re Bellerin.

      1. MTPockets
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        This. For every potentially decent option there's a better/cheaper one from another team.

    2. Gooner97
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      I still don't know why I don't own Auba.

    3. _sidney_will
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Lacazette for me

    4. noquarternt
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Lacazette's price is tempting.

      Bellerin if they start getting clean sheets.

    I have 2 players for the game later - Yedlin & Gudmundsson.

    Now sitting with 33 points, realistically, what should I expect? 🙁

    1. waldo666
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Double figures from Gudmundsson! 😉

      1. seewhyaxe
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        that would be a miracle, not something I would expect!

        1. waldo666
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 24 days ago

          I say that cos I own him too but I would not be at all surprised if he gets a decent return. I have Kenedy also so hoping it's a match with a few goals in it.

      Also own Yedlin, think a CS (+BPS) is as good as it’ll get, but can see Burnley scoring 1 or 2

      1. seewhyaxe
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        A combined double digit effort from them would really be sweet!

    0.2itb and 1 FT... thinking this for next gw:

    Fab
    Alonso VVD Doherty AWB Dunk
    Hazard Salah
    Aguero Jimenez Vardy

    (Speroni, Rich, Fraser, Diagana)

    Too defensive?? Looking to wc in gw 16 and fixtures for this week look favourable so might just save

    1. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Looks fine

  23. jia you jia you
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 24 days ago

    Which two of these would you play guys?
    A. Fraser (at City)
    B. Digne (at Liverpool)
    C. Camarasa (WOL)
    D. Billing (BHA)

    1. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      A or B, depending on who else your starting

    2. Down with this sort of thin…
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Bit of a nightmare pick, ruled out Billing. Prob go A and B, not much hope of points in any of them this week.

      eek b and erm...

    What is the problem with Southampton?

    I fear that they will be relegated.

    1. noquarternt
      • 3 Years

      Manager, players, backroom stuff et

    2. korbendallas82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      They have managed to do well, even though They have been ribbed of all talent they come up with, over ca.5-6 years. The guys they have bought back, have done well. I guess its not sustainable over a long period.

    3. JasonG123
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      They're second on the ladder and undefeated.

      Their youth team, however, is on the brink of relegation.

  25. The White Pele
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 24 days ago

    who get more points next GW:
    A) Salah & Bennet
    B) Mane & Aguero -4

    1. Down with this sort of thin…
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 24 days ago

      b

    2. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      I'd guess A with CL sandwiched between em and the hit

    3. JasonG123
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      B but I wouldn't want Mane long term and better premiums than Kun long-term as well imo (Salah, Kane, Sterling).

      1. The White Pele
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 24 days ago

        cheers. kun will be kane gw 15 & mane will be Alli/Eriksen gw 16.

    4. The White Pele
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 24 days ago

      cheers all. would probably go B if kun rested in CL.

    0.3m short of Laca -> Kun

    SHOULD i fund it for a -4? Kun worth it for the next 6 or so? fixtures are OK and no other forwards are really doing it atm

    Newcastle rotate well with Everton so i could do;
    Doherty -> Fernandez

    ederson
    bennett - digne - alonso - TAA - doherty
    sterling - mane - haz! - obiang - richarl
    Arnie! - success - laca!

    1. JasonG123
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Think I would prioritise getting rid of Mane (e.g. for Sane/Alli) or looking to get Kane for Laca.

  28. JasonG123
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 24 days ago

    Patricio (Hamer)
    Robertson TAA Wan-Bissaka Doherty Balebeuna
    Salah Sterling Hazard (Richarlison Obiang)
    Jimenez Arnautovic (Wilson)

    1FT, 2.5m ITB. Which move?
    (A) Richarlison to Sane (bench Balbeuna)
    (B) Save FT, look to get Spurs next week.
    (C) Something else?

  29. Dakes.
    • 2 Years

    Hopefully no double rise for sane this week.

    On another note, laporte price rocketing
