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.

        Destroyed my season. Caused me to make an awful start, chase points, panic, take hits, never recovered.

      Luckily I ignored him, but will never forgive him for that especially as it turned out he captained Aguero that GW too...

    60% of all posts here mention Trossard, Rico, Lundstram.

    Shouldn't you be preoccupied with players who actually score points, and not these no-good two-pointers-at-best that you're probably leaving on the bench anyway?

    1. Infected by ebolasie
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Trossard has a good chance of racking up the points

    2. Marvin.com

      Trossard is one of my starters.

    Ceballos could be incredible at 5.5, anyone thinking about making the move this week? Next 2 aren't great for Arsenal but after that the have a great run of games

    1. BEARZINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      At 5.5 i’ll get him and hold - better than being priced out at 5.6

      No thanks for Liv and Tot. Don't care if he goes up from the casuals if he's going to get back to back 2 pointers.

    Why would Potter change a team that won 3-0 they said. Trossard wont start they said.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Making changes, is like, what Potter is all about.

      Potter has said Trossard benefits from space to run in to. I expect him to play against high lines and attacking teams. Potter strikes me as a tinkerman, and a tactician.

      1. Four Hit Wonder
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Dammit, Jim, I'm a tinkerman, not a tactician!

        “Leo can play in the space, he is technically very good.
        “He is very good in terms of his intelligence and his decision-making, especially in the final third.... The physicality of the league here is higher but you have to just play to his strengths.
        “...As long you use what he has, then he is a talented player.”

        Don't think any of those are. Ceballos was really impressive today. Involved in everything, took set pieces, a couple of shots, 2 assists playing for an attacking Arsenal side at 5.5m.

        What's not to like?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        can't believe it

        mind you, a price drop would be nice given the rises elsewhere.

        Glad I dodged that one. Mind you, King has been pretty awful so far.

        you have to wait. All everton fans thought DCL would start the season and kean wasn't going to be thrown in. Kean will start games but maybe in a few games times

      I don't think I have room for Ceballos as I have the mighty Trossard taking up that place
