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.

    Torreira is such a bell end. Diver, play acting, exaggerating all the time.

        Why do you write like you’re on a flip phone in the 90’s?

      He's Uruguayan.. Its what they do mate.

      Herrera 2.0

  2. Do I Not Like Orange

    2 weeks in and down to 10 men already thanks to my disastrous Guilbert/Taylor/Rico 3rd defender rotation. Brilliant.

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

      this was never a good idea

    2. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Why would you even do that?

      1. Do I Not Like Orange
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Couldn't trust 5.5s like Zinchenko, Gomez & Coleman to not be rotation risks. Ironic.

    3. Zlatanzo
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Mings/Montoya rotation working well for me so far...

    4. SirStevieG
      • 7 Years

      Gomez has been rested, not sure why someone said he was dropped a couple pages back.

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

        haha

        It's Demi, what do you expect?

    5. KICKandRUSH

      baps for Auba? How likely?

      1. Pedram
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        On two right now

      2. Yossi
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        looks like 2 nailed with winning goal bps

      3. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Few deductions may cancel out winning goal but should get some.

      4. The Man Pastore
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        will probably get 2

      5. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years

        Typical

    6. Four Hit Wonder

      So this Trossard guy is a winger? Or an inside forward or something? Saw his record in Belgium, quite a few goals.

      1. Tactical Focus
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I scored quite a few goals in the Welsh Premier league for Bala before my injury, doesn't mean I'm any good in the Prem mind 😉

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

          Just trying to find out why people talk about him so much.

      2. Giggs Boson.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Inside forward. Right-footed, plays on the left. Quality finisher.

      3. Trossard or not Trossard
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Winger

      4. Yankee Toffee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      13. MITHRRANDIRR
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Shocking pass from Pepe denying Auba a sure goal.

      14. Amey
          1 month, 2 days ago

          How many transfers a WC is worth ??

          1. Do I Not Like Orange
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            I have Guilbert, Rico, Taylor, Fraser & Moura to replace, so seriously considering it. My late WC last season ruined my team anyhow, so maybe best to just use it & be done with it.

          2. Zlatanzo
              1 month, 2 days ago

              4 minimum

            Chances of Kane outscoring Auba this week?

              1 month, 2 days ago

              Was a good pick imo, he had the form pre-season and looked as dangerous as Barnes in 2019 league.
