Lacazette joins Aubameyang in Arsenal attack for Burnley visit

Unai Emery has made three changes to Arsenal’s opening Premier League win against Newcastle with David Luiz (£6.0m) Dani Ceballos (£5.5m) and Alexandre Lacazette (£9.5m) starting for the Gunners against Burnley. 

The Spaniard has opted to drop Callum Chambers (£4.5m) to give Brazilian Luiz his Arsenal debut, whilst handing Ceballos his first start.

Lacazette also joins the Arsenal attack with Henrik Mhikitaryan (£7.0m) dropping to the bench. 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m), selected by 29% of managers and who came second in our Gameweek 2 captaincy poll with 17.84% of the vote, has retained his started berth.

He found the net on opening weekend at Newcastle and will have the expectation of many a Fantasy manager on his shoulders this lunch-time.

Arsenal academy duo Joe Willock (£5.5m) and Reiss Nelson (£5.0m) will also start their second successive league games for the club after impressing at St. James’ Park.

Alongside Ceballos, Willock and Nelson could offer value for money if they can start racking up some Fantasy points – so there will be plenty of attention on them this afternoon.

Meanwhile, for Burnley, Sean Dyche has opted to name an unchanged starting XI following the Clarets’ impressive 3-0 victory over Southampton last weekend. 

Dyche’s backline of Matt Lowton (£4.5m) James Tarkowski (£5.0m) Ben Mee (£5.0m) and Erik Pieters (£4.5m) will be marshalled by keeper Nick Pope (£4.5m) as the Clarets bid to keep yet another clean-sheet.

Striker Ashley Barnes (£6.5m) scored a brace last weekend, and Dyche will be hoping his talismanic striker can have a similar impact against Emery’s Arsenal.

Arsenal XI: Leno; Monreal, Sokratis, D Luiz, Maitland-Niles; Willock, Guendouzi, Ceballos; Nelson, Lacazette, Aubameyang.

Burnley XI: Pope; Pieters, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; McNeil, Westwood, Cork, Gudmundsson; Barnes, Wood.

    Sterling by far the most captained player in the top 10k. I'm a bit surprised by that. Guess I want a blank.

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 2 days ago

      top 10k at this stage is casuals following last week score

    2. Guy Demel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Top 10k is irrelevant as a benchmark at this stage

    3. Sponge-worthy

      Those who TCd Sterling in gw 1 are now captaining him.

        TC Sterling last week was a great move. We'll all struggle to use our chip for a return of over 20...

    Really really enjoyed that game, especially Barnes and Ceballos, Both have popped to the top of my watchlist, but with fixtures in mind I think i bring them both in, for GW5. In the meantime I still really fancy Martial. I wouldnt do this until the end of the week, but what do you think about this...

    Perez and VVD
    to
    Martial and 5.0 (KWP or someone)

    lemme know your thoughts

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 2 days ago

      why dont you wait until those players have played mate

      1. Gazpilicueta
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        yeah, I literally said in the post mate, I wouldn't do it til the end of the week, I'm just interested in peoples thoughts.
        like, are Ceballos and Barnes so good, and is form so important, that I should just bring them in now? etc etc

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          No on your last question.

          Barnes and Ceballos are not must get.

    2. I Member

      GW5 looks ideal for Barnes and Ceballos.

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      I'm planning those moves you have.

      Barkley + VvD > Martial + KWP is my current plan. I have 2 FTs to use.

  7. Jacky boy
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    I know it's too early, but would you remove barkley for -8 for next gw?
    Barkley + taa to laporte + lanzini arr moves

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      “i know its too early”

      1. Jacky boy
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Planning is fun 🙂

    2. GanonTEK
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      no

    3. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Wait and see how the weekend goes. What if Barkley scores tomorrow? What if Lanzini gets injured? No point planning right now.

    4. Gazpilicueta
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      come on dudes, its not too early to plan. We are on this site because we are not casuals right. so let the dude plan, if he wants to make 5 plans, and then choose which one to go with whenever he decides to, then thats cool. sounds better to me then making a new plan later.
      Proper planning prevents piss poor performance.

      Personally I wouldnt go for Lanzini, even tho I really like West Ham.

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      That's a -4 not -8.

      Wait and see though ofc. I'm planning to remove Barkley for Martial unless he somehow delivers huge against Leicester.

  8. tajulariff
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Auba, Moura > Kane, Cabellos

    Okay or not okay?

    1. Pedram
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I would just do Auba>Kane

    2. EMBOLOFAN

    So Ceballos is the kneejerk of the week then. Dude has Liverpool and Spurs up next.

    1. Jimmy Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Emery roulette will claim him

    2. Hairy Potter
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      There'll be at least one more bandwagon by the end of the day.

      He does, but it doesn't change the fact that he is quality and very cheap. Was also I the team of tournament during u23 this summer that Spain won.

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        He will still be quality and cheap after those two difficult fixtures won't he?

  11. Bolivian Seaman

    Isn't fpldiscovery working this year?

    1. grumpyman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Doesn’t appear to be. A real shame - the game week stats have been my first stop after the game refreshes. Such a useful site.

  12. EMBOLOFAN
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    esoteric predictions for 5pm bandwagon?

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Trossard

    2. Gazpilicueta
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      bit early to ask for predictions mate, we still have 8 minutes before 3pm.

    Ceballos was fantastic. Shame Arsenal don't have an option to buy. On that performance, the new R.Madrid manager will want him next season. And if he doesn't, the likes of Pep and Klopp will.

    At the risk of being shunned for my ignorance, what is EO?

    1. souleil
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Effective ownership. Takes captaincy into account

      If you have Salah but haven't captained him, how many (if any) points do you want him to score?

      1. MTPockets
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        none

      2. grumpyman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        1 million. His EO is less than 100% so any point scored is good for rank.

        as much as possible as none of my mini league rivals have him
