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.

    Thoughts on Ceballos? Long term starter and points scorer?
    I never trust players on loan.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Looked promising first game but nice day out in the sun at home. Let's see if he can do it on a....

    2. IRBOX ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Hard to trust Emery. Ozil, Torriera, Xhaka could all steal minutes

    3. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Looks like the first real head turner in the low price bracket. Going to be hard to drop after two good performances - a little like Fabregas was (perhaps a stretch but he’s not DMF). Way more attacking than his price tag.

    4. My neck my back my Saed Kol…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      I put him in. He’s the only one of the Center mids in the squad that can carry the ball like that. He was unreal yesterday. He was also promised 30 games as part of the loan deal so I’d expect to see him a lot.

      1. timmyotool
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 6 days ago

        That's good to know, thanks.
        Shame I don't have the funds to use him has 5th mid, he'd have to be 4th with Dendo 5th.

        1. My neck my back my Saed Kol…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 6 days ago

          I’ve got him as 4th currently but as I now have 1.9 ITB I’ll probably upgrade Dendoncker to McGinn or someone.

          1. Limbo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            5 months, 6 days ago

            Yeah. To move on Pukki last night I downgraded. Money ITB 🙂

            1. My neck my back my Saed Kol…
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              5 months, 6 days ago

              Did the exact same thing whilst drunk! King and moura to Pukki and Ceballos.

    5. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Robinson is a better option at that price. Nailed and oop

      1. timmyotool
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Thing is Arsenal are going to be goals this season with that lineup, i'd like the guy in the middle getting all the assists.

    6. Weilong7
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      solid performance.. unsure whether he will nail down a place.. has the passion and drive but manager is the second pep..
      next 2 games not easy as well so maybe monitor for a couple of weeks?

    7. Winston.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Probably gonna get him as fifth mid. Great value. He’s gonna play number 8 or 10, and I believe will get a lot of minutes if stays fit.

  2. Lazaretti
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 6 days ago

    Imo people are more or less panicking and using WC just to change couple of players to chase last GW's points.

    This season FPL have done good job when pricing players. High prices makes it difficult to get good "template" team with all or enough big hitters. Only good enablers are 4.5mids and you only want to have one 4.5 mid as you prob need/want to have 4 good midfielders, i.e Salah, Sterling, Mane, KdB, Martial, Son... + Kane and some premium defenders

  3. DantheManinaPan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 6 days ago

    Man, this season hasn't started well!

    Now lost value on Wood and Bilva gah!

  4. IRBOX ⚽
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 6 days ago

    Solid enough pending no injuries for next GW? 0FT

    Ryan
    Robbo Digne VVD KWP
    Sterling KDB Siggy Perez
    Kane Pukki

    Button Dendoncker Greenwood Rico

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Yup - you done with Salah? Only GW 5 (NEW) looks like him being a prime captaincy option.

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Yep, first time in 3 seasons I haven’t owned him. If he looks to turn things around before Newcastle at Anfield I’ll probably get him back in for Kane/Siggy. I do enjoy an early WC historically as well

    2. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Yeah. Tidy.

    3. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      WC team?

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Nope that’s my original squad with 2FT

  5. Bobby Digital
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 6 days ago

    How close to a drop is Salah?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      far.

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Whaddabout KDB rise?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 6 days ago

          Halfway there, needs another 44k transfers in (independent of Wildcard)

          1. Bobby Digital
            • 2 Years
            5 months, 6 days ago

            Ok.. cheers. I will probably do Salah to KDB and use my WC if it goes tits up. Atleast I will be able to buy Salah back on a discount 😛

    2. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      People are selling him fast, but I recon he will fall in price later during the week, not today or tomorrow...too many owners.

    3. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      57000 transfers away

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Already up to 75k this week so pretty plausable that he will drop before the next deadline.

  6. Rinseboy
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 6 days ago

    Salah to Mane or KDB this week for free?
    or save?

    1. IRBOX ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Save

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      I have to burn a transfer, so I might do Salah -> KDB this week. Silly or brilliant?

      1. cylus11 ( Manager) - Russia…
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        In that case Salah to Mane. I will still wait for 1 week more anad analyse after internationals

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 6 days ago

          Ok.. will try to save 2 ft for the IB

  7. The Man Pastore
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 6 days ago

    Bottomed

    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

    2FT / 0 itb

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Are you interested in Pukki?

      1. The Man Pastore
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Not really with those fixtures. I will probably get him gw6

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 6 days ago

          Cool - think it can wait til the GW concludes but think Kane in for Auba looks good. Think KDB is gonna prove great value and may need to come in soon.

  8. Whats the Huth
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 6 days ago

    Several beers last night led to this.

    VVD to Wan-Bis
    Fraser to KDB
    Wilson to Pukki

    Any injury today and I will be WC
    Foolish boy

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      -4 or -8?

      1. Whats the Huth
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        -4

    2. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      I prefer the first three 😐

      1. Whats the Huth
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Oh.. don’t 🙁

        1. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          5 months, 6 days ago

          Sorry. Think Wilson will come good. Pukki looks great (I dropped Jota last night :|) and I have KDB, but also think VVD is going to kill it.

          1. Whats the Huth
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 6 days ago

            VVD will kill it.
            I sold VVD over TAA as well.
            Hopefully TAA will match VVD points

            Wilson will defo come good.

    3. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      I think them moves are fine, maybe a touch early though lol

      1. Whats the Huth
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Way too early
        I have gained nothing except the fear for any injury to Wan-Bis and Vardy this weekend

        1. THFC4LIFE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 6 days ago

          WC in back pocket to fall back on though

    4. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      hm, if you have one Liv defender it´s not the worst i´ve seen. Fraser nowhere near last year and KDB is a very good upgrade, United defence is not the best but have alrighty fixtures coming so justified to a certain degree. VVD is risky to sell, though

      Wilson to Pukki is hm.. if you look at fixtures nah, but taking into account the 1.5 m difference in price and my personal view is that wilson will struggle to keep his 8m price tag worthy, still. Norwich plyed a high line Pool defence which suits Pukki´s playing style and Newcastle are rubbish in defence

      At least on paper for next week it looks like sound moves, albeit a little early.

    Is there no way to see what transfers your rivals did last week?

    1. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Wondering same. Terrible UI if you have to work it out.

      1. jason_ni
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Nope.. stupid really, the info is there, we just have to flick between gw teams, so it's very awkward, just give the list like previous seasons!

    2. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Not anymore.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Nope - think it has been removed

      1. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Weird. That should definitely be available once a GW has started.

        1. badgerboy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 6 days ago

          After the update it shows how many transfers were made during the week but it doesn't list them anymore. You have to look at their previous gameweek and compare.

          1. Limbo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            5 months, 6 days ago

            That’s daft. No reason to hide it once a week starts.

    4. Azathoth
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Check his GW1 team then GW2 and find the differences....

    5. Rones
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Only way I know is to go into their team and amend the URL so it includes “\transfers” immediately after the ID number

      1. Rones
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Actually it’s “/transfers”...

  10. Og

    Mane and vvd or salah and wan bisakka?

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years

      I still prefer salah. But I probably would go mane for money saved

    Do we have any idea what sort of injury Zinchenko had at the end of yesterday’s game?

    1. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      he touched himself inside of his left thigh, but he continued throughout the game so cramp most likely.

      Cheers all - think I will re-run this without Sterling as he is now a given.

    7. Rinseboy
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      surprised people still backing Salah over Mane and KDB. Reminds of last season when Mane etc were matching Salah for cheaper

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Mane was 3.0 cheaper than Salah last season and wasn’t almost matching, but not quite. The 1.0 difference makes Mane a non-option imo, especially with Salah being on pens and the proven beast of FPL

  14. cylus11 ( Manager) - Russia…

    Thoughts on getting Martial
    I am thinking to do Fraser to Martial in FT.

      Kdb could be son
      Kane could be auba
      Ceballos could be robinson

      I like the price points in the team

      Think I'd keep VVD over Robbo, would allow a 2nd keeper to nurse Pope over the upcoming bad fixtures

      Who's the 5th mid? Donkey?

      1. SMOOTH
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        yeah dendo. i could keep vvd over robbo and use the 0.5 for a better def or keeper like you said.
        just wondering if the transfers are worth it or is it just chasing this weeks points?

        if i look at them on an individual basis

        Salah to Mane - similar potential
        Siggy to kdb - upgrade
        Perez to ceballos - similar
        Wilson to kane - upgrade
        King to pukki - upgrade (long term - i think)
        Vvd to Montoya - downgrade
        Stones to sonyucu - downgrade

        do the upgrades out weigh the downgrades? i think so - considering one of them is an injured stones. the only real loss is a liverpool def - who have barely looked solid

        1. Business Cat
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 6 days ago

          I'd disagree with a couple.

          Perez playing wide on the wing, I bought him as playing up front or just behind Vardy. All Arsenal attack going through Ceballos yesterday, he looks like KDB-lite - UPGRADE

          Stones isn't nailed, Soyuncu seemingly is...SIMILAR

          I think the upgrades outweigh the downgrades

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            that just makes the case stronger

        I think so too.
        But if 1 of Christensen/Zouma nail down a place even after Rudiger returns they could be good options.

    Already done king to pukki but mulling over TAA & auba > Laporte & Kane for -4. What do you think?

    1. SMOOTH
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Why can’t you just do auba to Kane. Defenders not usually worth a -4

      1. ShaunGoater123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah possible. Not sure I want double Liverpool going forward though.

        Auba to Kane worth it? Kane has looked naff but Newcastle at home...

          for free there is limited downside.
          auba plays pool
          kane plays newcastle

          you have a wc to use sooner or later to fix any longer term issues. i would consider it if there are no other pressing concerns

    2. Klein

      Could work wonders. But newcastle may sit back this time.

      Just Auba to Kane City Defence not as good as everyone thinks

    Re : Thoughts on this team?
    Pope(Button)
    TAA VVD AWB Digne (Rico)
    KDB Salah Sterling Perez (Dendoncker)
    Jota King (Greenwood)
    2FT'S, 0 ITB
    Which of these moves look good?
    A)Salah,King to Mane,Pukki
    B)TAA,King to Laporte,Pukki
    C)VVD to Laporte this week and King,Perez to Pukki,Ceballos next week(Too many question marks)
    D) Other

    1. Magic Zico

      A out of those options

      • 3 Years

      Best Player in the PL when fit IMO, was my favorite to win POTY at the start of the season and could make a mockery of that 9.5 price tag surely.

      same thoughts.. updating for me as well..
      the updates are taking longer now compared to last season as well..
      perhaps its because there are more players now

      Why WC if you saved 2FTs, surely can sort your biggest problems with a -4

    3. Warby84

      You would be mad to WC

    4. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      King to Pukki (possibly with a Perez downgrade to Ceballos to fund it) and you're golden

  23. Magic Zico

    People still happy with 4 premium defenders? Or even 5?

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Nope - very difficult to stay patient

      But pool looked like keeping a CS other than that tool Adrián

      Robbo pull a great save

      Digne did the business

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Adrian gives me nerves, needs KDB and Pool defenders are my cash cow

      2. Weilong7
        • 3 Years

        all thanks to the clown adrian who cost alot of players CS points... sigh..

          i am happy adrian lost LIV the CS. i have adrian, mane & salah, but many people still have 2 LIV defenders. LIV defense not looking that solid.

      GTG

      Maybe keep an eye on 6.5m strikers falling in price (King, Deulofeu), plough the 1.9m into upgrading Greenwood to expand your options

      Or earmark it for a KWP upgrade to Laporte etc. after next week when his place maybe becomes less nailed

    Best 4.0 def to own?

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Probably Lundstram if he starts today, Rico train already derailed and Kelly will probably lose his place when Tomkins,Sakho,Dann are all fit, can't bank on any of them to be a starter in our teams though I guess..

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 6 days ago

      Another team snapping him up in Jan 😉

      1. Klein
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 6 days ago

        Jan is a long wayyy. Is he nailed till then?

    2. Coolbean
      5 months, 6 days ago

      His main competition just tore his ACL. Roberts is another exciting young prospect who is a natural left winger (unlikely Cantwell), but it looks like Cantwell’s earned his spot for now.

  29. FOO FIGHTER
    5 months, 6 days ago

    Re Salah, it is madness getting rid of him. There will be GW's he will blank, Sterling will blank too. It is just the way the cookie crunmbles.

    Bringing in Mane for Salah is tempting but not going to transfer Salah out because of one GW.

    So far had a bad GW after a promising start in GW 1. I still have Jota, Vardy and Perez to play this GW so hoping they can add some points to pick up my score.

    I have only used 2 FT's, Haller out for Jota and Heaton out for Pope.

    Both these transfers needed to be made and both are decent long term picks.

    Great to see Trossard putting points on the board in his first game but no bonus points for him. Hopefully he is not a flash in the pan.

    I will look at my entire team after GW3 to see what needs to be fixed.

    1. Rinseboy
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      while I agree with this that it's a bit if knee jerk. The extra money from downgrading Salah can afford a KDB for me. Depends if we think Salah will massively outscored Mane in the short to medium term.

  30. Burger
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 6 days ago

    Suicidal to go without any Pool for the tine being? City look far better in attack and defence currently so Sterling, KDB, Laporte look to be better picks than Salah, Mane, TAA?

    1. Rinseboy
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      not sure re Laporte dont think city look solid and prefer VVD over him. agree attack wise KDB looks red hot though

    2. Regin
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 6 days ago

      suicide to go without any pool at all. i am predicting they will beat arsenal 4-1
