Aubameyang delivers as Ceballos offers potential in Arsenal win

Arsenal 2-1 Burnley

Goals: Alexandre Lacazette (£9.5m) Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) | Ashley Barnes (£6.5m)

Assists: Dani Ceballos (£5.5m) x 2 | Dwight McNeil (£6.0m) 

Bonus Points: Ceballos x 3 Lacazette x 2 Aubayemang x 1

Arsenal emerged victorious with a 2-1 victory over Burnley in their first home game of the Premier League season with Alexandre Lacazette (£9.5m) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) getting the goals.

Dani Ceballos (£5.5m), making his first Premier League start for the Gunners, put in a stellar performance, contributing two assists and collecting maximum bonus points.

In a man of the match display, the onloan Real Madrid man underlined his exciting potential to be a value for money route into the Arsenal attack this season. 

He played a crucial role in the attacking play and also had a hand in the Gunners’ corners and free-kicks but also helped break up Burnley’s offensive efforts.

Dani Ceballos was comfortably Arsenal’s man of the match against Burnley

At a price of £5.5m and after such an impressive debut, it will be difficult for managers to ignore Ceballos who unquestionably has the ability to start for Arsenal on a weekly basis.

And given the void that has been vacated by Mesut Ozil’s (£7.4m) ongoing absence, Ceballos looks to have the confidence and ability to contribute assists that the Gunners’ have been crying out for in the Emery era. 

Ashley Barnes (£6.5m) struck an early equaliser after Lacazette had put Arsenal in front, with the forward making it three goals in two games for the Clarets to stake his claim as an early frontrunner for the best budget forward in 2019/20.

Ashley Barnes and Dwight McNeil celebrate a goal for Burnley

Barnes took his goal well after a battling run and through ball from Dwight McNeil (£6.0m) rewarding the 3.9% of managers who had backed him to deliver against Arsenal. 

Despite a nervous first-half performance that culminated in a booking for Aubameyang, the Gabonese forward scored a crucial goal for the Gunners after cutting in from the left, burying his well-struck shot past Nick Pope (£4.5m) to give Arsenal the lead. 

Owned by 29% of managers, the performance of Aubameyang was relatively re-assuring given his well-taken goal, even if it was a long-time coming.

The premium forward was a peripheral figure in the first half, having been deployed on the right flank of attacking midfield.

Aubameyang was frustrating to watch for his Fantasy owners but he delivered a second goal in two against Burnley

It was not until the second period, when Nicolas Pépé (£9.5m) replaced Reiss Nelson (£5.5m), that Aubameyang really got going.

This substitution saw Aubameyang move to the left, with Pépé, making his home debut, taking up the right-wing station.

Emery’s decision to deploy the premium striker in both a left and right-sided role at various stages Saturday afternoon’s fixture will be an area of potential concern.

When we consider the assured positions of other premium options such as Harry Kane (£11.0) as a centre-forward, Raheem Sterling (£12.1) as a winger and Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) as a right-sided attacking midfielder, this is a level of consistency Aubameyang cannot really offer. That said, the Arsenal man still outscored all of those big names in Gameweek 2.

Despite his yellow-card for encroachment on a Burnley free-kick, Aubameyang picked up one bonus against Burnley, meaning he has a total of 12 points over two Gameweeks in 2019/20. 

If Lacazette can continue his goalscoring form alongside occupying the central striking role for Arsenal, then the Frenchman is certainly worthy of monitoring with regards to attacking Arsenal coverage given his favourable price-tag at £1.5m less than his Gabonese counterpart. 

Pépé’s introduction at half-time did not lead to any attacking returns for the £72m signing, but glimpses of his potential were on show at The Emirates. The former Lille striker will now be looking to nail down a starting berth and prove himself to Emery as a worthy candidate to feature alongside Aubayemang and Lacazette regularly.

Despite failing to record a second consecutive clean-sheet, Pope was exceptional at times for Burnley, making seven saves in total as well as a number of crucial blocks to prevent the scoreline developing into a mauling for the Clarets. 

Nick Pope made seven saves against Arsenal

There remains indisputable value in both Pope and the likes of Matt Lowton (£4.5m) James Tarkowski (£5.0m) Ben Mee (£5.0m) and Erik Pieters (£4.5m) who have a favourable run of fixtures from Gameweeks 5 to 8 after navigating an away trip to Wolves before hosting Liverpool at Turf Moor. 

The early momentum that Arsenal have now picked up after successive victories over Newcastle and Burnley is a stark contrast to Emery’s debut season with the Gunners, where successive defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea in Gameweeks 1 and 2 made for difficult reading. 

If Emery and Arsenal can translate this promising initial form into continuous winning momentum, then there is no doubt that they have a number of primarily attacking assets who can deliver for Fantasy managers – namely Lacazette and Aubameyang.

But Saturday’s victory was both a day and performance that belonged to debutant Ceballos with his two assists and a Man of the Match performance.

    Have multiple problems in team it seems so need advice on whether to WC or not

    Ryan
    TAA, Matip, Zinchenko
    Salah, Sterling, Martial, Perez, Dendoncker
    Kane, King

    Button, Balbuena, Greenwood, Kelly

    Route 1

    A) Matip -> AWB/Digne/4.5 def?
    Double Liverpool def seems to be misguided so far, at least till Alisson is back, so need to replace Matip

    B) Dendoncker -> Cantwell? Seems like best performing 4.5 now

    C) Perez -> Ceballos. Ceballos cheaper and fixtures are slightly easier

    D) Greenwood -> Pukki (If A is 4.5 def)

    Also Balbuena didn't play yesterday which is a bit worrying - must be not nailed

    Route 2 - try and upgrade Perez to Son or De Bruyne

    Will likely demand a downgrade of Kane or Salah and TAA

    1. Respect My Authoritah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Matip to Digne if fit. Dendo to Cantwell looks good, but not for a -4.

      1. Respect My Authoritah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        C is a poor move, especially for the next 2.

        1. afsr
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          Could keep Perez if he shows promise today, and change in 2 weeks, yes. But afraid Ceballos will rise in price by then

          1. Respect My Authoritah
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            Ceballos looks a good player but it's early days on whether he'll be a good FPL asset. I doubt he's a better option than McGinn.

            1. Prawnsandwich
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 23 days ago

              No. 10 for Arsenal....?

              They'll score goals, and he's likely to be involved

              1. Respect My Authoritah
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 23 days ago

                He didn't even play as a no.10, he played next to Guendouzi.

                He will tick along with assists. A bigger issue is Emery loves to change his team selection for no reason

                1. Respect My Authoritah
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 23 days ago

                  Well, he played as a CM. I guess Guendouzi was a little deeper. Bit too early to jump on him with the next 2 fixtures

    2. Jacky boy

      Why downgrade kane? I may WC to bring kane in

      1. afsr
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Hard to bring Son in otherwise. And Son may start playing in a more advanced position compared to Kane, like last season. Think that having them both would be too much of a risk

    3. manu4life99
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Similar team (see below) also tempted by WC

    4. Babit1967
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      I don’t think this team warrants a wild card mate

    5. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Matip played but in the end, might go down to a 4.5 that rotates with West ham def? To get someone in for Greenwood looks better balanced so prob yes, i would maybe go Pukki and Montoya. Then you can deal with Balbuena now or just wait and see if it was an one off. Depends a little what you´ve got elsewhere in defence i suppose. If you see that gw4 will be troublesome in respect to fielding a good defense, i would consider giving -4 a shot just to fix that problem. Because, and this often happens, another thing arises and you´re left with a problem for ages. And if all goes well, no need to make transfers next week then you can save which is always good.

  2. manu4life99

    Knee jerked Wilson>Pukki last night

    Any other changes to fix this mess of a team?

    Heaton
    TAA VVD Digne Montoya KWP
    Salah Sterling Perez Martial
    Pukki

    Pope,Dendonker,king,greenwood

    1. Valar(Keith)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      There is literally nothing wrong with that team

    2. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Double pool defence looking iffy. But no major issues.

    3. afsr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      with no free transfer hard to make necessary changes.
      Ideally i would downgrade Liverpool def and get Son, but -8 seems too much

      If you WC you could get Kane of course, but i always came to regret using WC early on

      1. Demel
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Wildcard with that team? -8 hits? I would be struggling to use a FT.

      You may want to use one on Digne. Wait until you hear any news...

        sorry whats wrong with digne?

        1. Galza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Got a knock. Should be ok, but worth waiting...

  4. Soto Ayam
    3 months, 23 days ago

    Time to swap Salah for sterling?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Any other pool cover ?

      1. Soto Ayam
        3 months, 23 days ago

        TAA and vvd, no mane. Have KDB.
        Maybe Salah just not so great as played 2 hours on wed.

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          It's a tough one ..but getting rid of Salah because he blanked one game feels wrong imo. I'm in the same boat too, no sterling in my team .

          1. Soto Ayam
            3 months, 23 days ago

            It does seem like a knee jerk reaction. He looked off the pace yesterday, but then he did play 2 hours mid week

    2. mookie
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Out of those two, I'd want Sterling.

      1. Soto Ayam
        3 months, 23 days ago

        That's what I'm thinking

    3. themec
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Cut off your nose to spite your face

    4. LAMELA_AND_CONSUELA
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      I'm strongly considering putting perma capitan on Sterling. Good move in my opinion

      1. rrcmc
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        cant believe i captained Salah; with hindsight it is kind obvious he wasnt going to perform...

      2. Soto Ayam
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Deciding to stick with Salah for the time being. At home to arsenal who are leaky, on free kicks and corners. Will be more rested than this week. Also sterling's hattrick last week flater's to deceive. West ham have an awful defence who city regularly get 4 or 5 against.

  5. CornerTakenQuicklyOrigi
    3 months, 23 days ago

    Which would you opt for? Worried about Son starting week in week out, with Moura, Lamela, Eriksen (currently), Alli (to return) and perhaps even Lo Celso all vying for places. Safer to wait and see with Son?

    A) Kane + Firmino + 0.5m
    B) Son + Mane

    1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 23 days ago

      I don't know a scenario in which I'd opt for Firmino anyway

        the amount of bad press poor Bobby is getting on here this season is funny...in form, looking sharp, most blinkered by Salah I guess...he has being doing just fine in my team thus far anyway 🙂

      Just noticed half my post wasn't added.
      I've stacked my midfield leading to no balance,
      Who do you drop from:
      Sterling, Kdb, son, mane, martial?

      1. Prawnsandwich
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Ceballos looks a great pick, frees up massive funds....Son maybe a wait and see

      2. Respect My Authoritah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Son

      3. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Son easily imo - he has no form yet and apparently he's everyone's darling despite averaging 2.5 over his last 11 game weeks. He's wait and see territory surely.

        The big downside of 5 in the middle is that you lose much the best bench options in the 4.5 mids. The 4.0 defenders are a Palace who'll lose his spot in the next 2/3 weeks, Bournemouth who you don't want at 3.5 and Lund who is also likely to lose his spot.

        1. Respect My Authoritah
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          Is that downside really that big? 🙂

          1. pingissimus

            No it's this big

    Which ONE would you get on WC?

    Kane or Mane? (Will cap Sterling most of the weeks)

    1. Respect My Authoritah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Mané

    2. Garth Marenghi
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Sadio

    3. Brakos2k
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Mane

  13. Garth Marenghi
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 23 days ago

    Who to bring in?

    A) Son
    B) KDB

    1. Respect My Authoritah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      KDB for me. Either could work.

    2. Brakos2k
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      KDB now and Son on watch list.

    3. Garth Marenghi
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Yeah, I agree with KDB, I just remember getting burnt last season with Son

    Between Son from GW3 and Pepe from GW5... I've chosen Pepe

    ...I think

  15. Brakos2k
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 23 days ago

    If Perez not good today im tempted with Wilson Salah and Perez to Jota KDB and Mane... but is -8 too much? Really want KDB...

    1. cylus11 ( Manager) - Russia…
      • 8 Years

      Wait for Jota to play first.
      I like the Mane move for sure

    2. Garth Marenghi
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Ayoze needs to do a lot to not transfer him for KDB or Heung Min

      See what happened with holding King and/or Wilson for their second "easy" (sorry Kiwi) game. Similar to Trossard/Lanzini this GW as well

      Selling Perez before Sheffield and Bournemouth because he blanked against Wolves (great defence) and Chelsea (with Kante) might just be greed whispering to you. He's most likely gone from my team by GW5 though

      1. Brakos2k
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Ok thanks all. I'll see how things go today! Glad I took my finger off the wc trigger last night.

    Best captain next GW:

    A) Salah (ARS)
    B) Sterling (bou)
    C) Kane (NEW)

    1. Garth Marenghi
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Not A anyway

    2. Respect My Authoritah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Sterling for me. I bet Salah gets a brace.

      Captaincy hokey cokey between Salah and Sterling miiiiight just have become Sterling permacap for me 😀

      So, yeah. B.

      1. cylus11 ( Manager) - Russia…

        Will captain Digne again. 2 weeks in a row

  17. Jones Kusi

    3 months, 23 days ago

    What are the 2 biggest concerns?
    Deulofeu, Siggy, Fraser, Digne, Robertson, VVD.
    I got 2 FT and 0 ITB.

    1. Garth Marenghi
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Not Robbo or VVD for now

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Digne if injured (unless you have good cover)
      Deulofeu a bit too hit and miss for me - and gets injured

    3. lilmessipran
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Digne seems to be ok, I'd probably say Fraser looks a shadow of what he was last season, city next, probable price drop tonight

  18. Babit1967

    Guys, will obviously wait till today’s game but Pérez and Moura to Cantwell And Son? The only thing would be Cantwell would be a starter but that might not be a bad thing with his score so far

    1. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Moura will start

      1. Babit1967
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        You sure ? If so I’d probs keep another week

        We really can't say who out of Son, Moura, Lamela will start tbh. Pocc loves benching Moura!

        1. lilmessipran
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          If son is fit and ready he starts imo, lamela and Moura are way down the pecking order

          1. Respect My Authoritah
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            I wouldn't be so sure on that. New season and all. Son dipped in form a fair bit in the run in

          2. bench boost for every gamew…
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            they are not way down the pecking order... they are perhaps next in order?

    I really don't know what to do with my 2 FT. Any suggestions/areas of WEAKNESS? I am thinking Salah and King to Sterling and Barnes/Pukki

    Pope
    Walker TAA Digne KWP Pieters
    Salah KDB Martial Perez Dendonker
    Kane King Greenwood

    0ITB

    I think I may have made a mistake with Heaton over Pope. No rush to fix it, but hopefully can make the change after GW4.

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      feels that way alright

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      3 months, 23 days ago

      I have used a FT to change Heaton to Pope. The Villa defence is really bad and not going to help Heaton at all.

  21. Lucackadoodledoo
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 23 days ago

    Need Kdb and looking at options below.

    A. VVD & Siggy - KWP & KDB

    Or

    B. TAA & Siggy - Zinchencko & KDB

    Could downgrade Moura but with a good fixture and a goal last match if rather hold for at least a week.

    Thoughts appreciated

  22. Kiwi Don
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 23 days ago

    A) KDB, Mane, Jota & Dunk

    Or

    B) Ceballos, Salah, Rashford and Mina

    1. Respect My Authoritah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      A

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      A by some margin

  23. AlpoShearer
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 23 days ago

    Salah and Wilson to KDB and Kane for free?

    1. Respect My Authoritah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Not for me

    2. rrcmc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I'm rather thinking the same but then it was a game where Pool had a major minutes hangover after the supercup

      Wasnt exactly 20 points.. but I still regret it massively.. seeing as I've already moved to bring him in!

      Ha, I remember seeing this

  25. The Fantasy Doctor
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 23 days ago

    Clearly waiting for end of gameweek but tempted by Wilson, Fraser, TAA (I have VVD) and Perez for Pukki, Son/KDB, Martial and Boly (if Perez looks bad and Wolves look tight at back)? For -8

    Done Pukki already to miss lots of rises.

    1. jason_ni
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      I've done robbo and king to awb and pukki.
      Couldn't afford to wait, the pukki train is more a rocket at this point

  26. cylus11 ( Manager) - Russia…

    How did Martial play the game vs CHE.
    He did score one but does he look good playing as OOP just behind Rashford.
    Thinking Fraser to Martial on FT for long term. Will do it after gamebon Monday night.
    Thoughts plz

    1. Weilong7
      • 3 Years

      he and rashford sometimes interchange position too.. not too bad..
      thinking of doing fraser to martial as well after the blank..

  27. Weilong7
    • 3 Years

    1) does pukki take norwich's penalties?
    2) is there any issue with Digne?

    thanks all

      1. Didn't take many so far but could well be on them with Vrancic out
      2. Sounds promising that he should be OK

    If Digne is OK, what do you think about Salah Fraser Auba to Mane Martial Kane for - 4pts? Yay or nay or any other suggestion?

    Pope Button
    VVD Digne Dunk Guilbert* Rico*
    Salah Sterling Fraser Perez Mcginn
    Auba Jota Greenwood

    Who would you rather have for the coming few gw's:

    A: Lundstrum/Dendocker + Salah + Kane with no bench
    B: TAA + KDB + Kane with Dendocker 1st sub
    C: TAA + Son + Rashford + Pukki in a strong front 8 (bench King (mci) this gw)

  30. Rash

    Any update on Digne? If hes out then I will be sticking with double pool defence.
