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.

      Mcginn is definitely better short term

      No.. points are always good.

      1. Brosstan

        • 5 Years

        Wrong

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          There's always someone who doesn't own the player.. thus points are always good.

      was asking this earlier. in your random leagues prob good to get pts, noncasual eo might be over 100 tho

    4. Business Cat

      Salah to score less than Auba, yes, that's what you want

    5. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salahs EO is 75%. Any time you own a player and haven't captained them and their EO is less than 100% you want them to score as many as possible. Unless you have ML rivals around you who've captained him.

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        nomcasual eo matters more end of the day

                  Depends how he plays, badly and Barkley might come in for him next game.

                  Mount will be a rotation risk as well.

                    1 month, 3 days ago

                    it's a great move if you like having the player you just transferred in rotated with the guy you just transferred out.

                    1 month, 3 days ago

                    Chelsea attacking options are risky atm. Willian is back soon, which will reduce Barkley/Mount's minutes further. Might get 60/30 minutes each every match. Same with Abraham/Giroud.

                    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...

                    to
                    Martial and 5.0 (KWP or someone)
