Lacazette and Kolasinac benched as Deulofeu absent

A number of Fantasy Premier League options have missed out on places in the starting line-ups of Watford vs Arsenal.

Alexandre Lacazette (£9.4m) has been named on the bench with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) leading the line on his own.

Alex Iwobi (£5.4m), Aaron Ramsey (£7.1m) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£6.7m) are the attacking midfielders behind him.

Also among the substitutes for Arsenal is Sead Kolasinac (£5.0m), with Nacho Monreal (£5.4m) handed the left-back berth.

Making his first start of the season at centre-back is Konstantinos Mavropanos (£4.7m).

Whether he will be able to help the Gunners to a first Premier League clean sheet on the road in 2018/19 remains to be seen.

Troy Deeney (£5.9m) might fancy his chances against the inexperienced defender, as he makes his 12th start in Watford’s last 13 league matches.

However, he is not joined by Gerard Deulofeu (£5.6m) in the side, the Spanish midfielder entirely as he deals with an ankle problem picked up in the FA Cup final.

Andre Gray (£5.9m) comes in first start since Gameweek 30.

Watford XI: Foster; Janmaat, Kabasele, Cathcart, Masina; Kiko Femenía, Capoue, Doucouré; Hughes; Deeney, Gray.

Arsenal XI: Leno; Mustafi, Koscielny, Mavropanos, Monreal; Torreira, Xhaka; Mkhitaryan, Ramsey, Iwobi; Aubameyang.

          If he plays of course...I mean, it's Danny Ings

      Think I’ll bench Salah Robbo and Aggers and play Duffy Valery and Lacazette

      It least it should look like BB has worked out

        Great idea. Might do the same. I'm benching Kun, Sterling & Son if I don't end camptaining one.

        Don’t think I would sell Eriksen at all, but getting Salah isn’t a bad idea

      Guys, if I have this kind of squad:

      Foster
      Laporte | Robbo | Valery*
      Son | Eriksen | Sterling | JWP | Jota
      Kun | Jimmy
      Subs: Lloris, Vardy, Dunk, Duffy

      Is it enough to do Dunk -> Doherty for free and press BB this week?

      2. Lacasweat

        Vardy to Firmino too

    6. Goodbye My Löwe
        9 days, 25 mins ago

        Best replacements for:

        Vardy
        Duffy
        Sané

        ... or hold on to any of them? Cheers.

          Is dunk > catchcart worth for a hit?

            worth but not for a hit

          Deeney + Moura + Duffy to Llorente + Deulofeu + VVD - 8?

              I own Llorente and am thinking of selling for a hit lol

                Surely you’ll wait and see after the CL game?!

                  Yes of course, but I need to shuffle things around abd world like Son but have Lloris & Eriksen too.

                  I will probably hold him and do Siggy & Vardy to City players (KdB & Kun work) for the doubles

            Is Valery F2F (fit to field)?

              WAS (wait and see) IMO (in my opinion).

            Thoughts Deeneys red was a bit harsh. The guys head is literally elbow height!

              Just seen it. I don't disagree but one thing is for sure - it won't be rescinded.

          4. De Gea is GOAT

            Pick one for this week. Already have Jimi and Wilson. No UTD or Watford Thanks guys!
            Fraser

            Dunk to Boly is my only transfer this week, so boring. Take hits for fun?

              • 3 Years

              Yes I'd say so

            Do you guys think this squad is good for BB? Took me a while to piece this squad together but had a disaster GW 34. Starting to doubt the team lol. Is Duffy to Boly a good move?

            Foster / Ryan
            Robbo / Cathcart / Duffy / Jonny / Valery*
            Mane / KDB / Son / Eriksen / Hojbjerg
            Kun / Jimenez / Vardy

            0.0 ITB

            What’s best team for you for remaining gws? Was away from internet and only using WC this week...

          8. TheFunkPhe-Gundogan
              8 days, 4 hours ago

              Ryan x2
              TAA. Lindelof x2 Jonny x2
              Sterling x2. Pog x2. Son x2. RLC.
              Kun x2, King, Auba x2 (C)

              Guaita, Keane, Cresswell, Brooks

              Using BB.

              I’m outside of 1st by around 80pts and set this up for weeks based on sheer differential options. Person in front only has Pogs also.
              I think it stinks personally.
              Man City cast doubtful for DGW.
              Have no confidence in Capt choice.

              Please tear apart or provide insight if possible.
              Cheers

              Any updates on Deulofeu?
              If he plays both games he could get a monster score.

              KDB or Jimenez (c)

              KDB in beast mode. Jimenez 2 home games v a poor Brighton defence and Arsenal with only 1 away clean sheet all season.

              Cant decide
