Lacazette and Luiz benched as budget FPL forward Martinelli gets first start

The final match of Gameweek 16 takes place this evening, as West Ham United take on managerless Arsenal.

Kick-off at the London Stadium is at 20:00 GMT.

Interim boss Freddie Ljungberg takes charge of the Gunners for the third time and has made a big call with his team selection, dropping Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m) and David Luiz (£5.8m) to the bench.

Nicolas Pepe (£9.1m) and Calum Chambers (£4.4m) come into the side, as does Kieran Tierney (£5.4m) at left-back.

Budget Fantasy Premier League forward Gabriel Martinelli (£4.5m) is handed his first-ever start in the English top flight, meanwhile.

Sead Kolasinac (£5.2m) and Joe Willock (£4.9m) are also cut from the starting XI, with the latter failing to make the matchday squad.

Hector Bellerin (£5.4m) was injured in the warm-up, meanwhile, so Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£4.6m) comes in at right-back.

The West Ham United team news is far more straightforward: Manuel Pellegrini’s only change sees the fit-again Michail Antonio (£6.9m) replace Sebastien Haller (£7.0m) in attack.

Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m) recovers from a minor knock to start, while there is no place for Andriy Yarmolenko (£5.6m) even among the substitutes.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) is by some distance the most-selected player on show this evening and the only FPL asset from either side who can boast a double-digit ownership.

The Gabon international sits in more than one in five Fantasy squads and in 8.59% of the teams who were in the top 10,000 at the point of the Gameweek 16 deadline.

Aubameyang has scored 50 FPL points on the road this season, compared to just 39 at the Emirates – and has played one fewer away fixture.

FPL’s cheapest playing goalkeeper, David Martin (£4.0m), gets his third straight start for the hosts.

Martin has already banked one clean sheet, three save points and two bonus points in his two appearances so far.


West Ham United XI: Martin, Fredericks, Ogbonna, Balbuena, Cresswell, Rice, Noble, Snodgrass, Fornals, Anderson, Antonio.

Arsenal XI: Leno, Maitland-Niles, Chambers, Sokratis, Tierney, Torreira, Xhaka, Pepe, Ozil, Martinelli, Aubameyang.

    I can honestly say I have can't remember seeing a worse Arsenal team than this current lot.

    1. Orion

      Yeah, exactly that

    2. Deulofail

      Because you can't remember the future.
      E.g. next week.
      Hahahaha

      Remember the Arsenal team that lost to Man U 7:1 in the league? Everyone knew they would get a drumming.

        It was 8-2

      Arsenal are so lazy... Pepe, Özil etc

  3. rokonto
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Pepe down for 4 mins
    Tierney down for 2 mins
    VAR check 1 min
    Total = 7
    Ref adds on 5
    As usual short changes us all!

    1. Would Ed Woodward

      I really don't mind tonight.

    Is Pulis available? Arsenal should be all over him or Big Sam

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Yep, the fwds take care of themselves, it’s the def that needs work

    2. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
      • 8 Years

      Big Sam is an interesting one. Organised, orthodox and structured. That's what they need

  5. diesel001

    Benitez is in the Sky Sports Studio in England.

    Arsenal board won't even consider talking to him about the Arsenal job.

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Don’t even insult the great man with that job.

    2. Bookkeeper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Shame on them. That board is clueless.

    3. Deulofail

      What's the difference between you and Team Cruel?
      Genuine question.

      1. Team Cruel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Racist

        1. Deulofail
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          😀

      2. Brosstan

        He uses one of the accounts to get access to the members area

    4. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      why would you want to manage Arsenal the next couple of years?
      Squad needs major overhaul which probably takes 2-3 transfer windows at least. Anyone who comes in now will want to see results but this team has no identity on the pitch

  6. pjanns
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    A. Rashford

    B. Kane

    Who would you choose? Already have Son, but other United. Money isn't a problem.

    1. JelliedSpark968
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 10 days ago

      A if you already have Son

    2. teneighty
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I own Kane and Alli but would buy Rashford in your shoes.

  7. JelliedSpark968
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 10 days ago

    I just ditched Sterling for Son yesterday, feeling nervous now. Is KdB enough?

    1. Rashford FC
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Yes KDB is enough

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I want City’s front 4 vs Arsenal!

    3. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I think sterling v arsenal is a better bet than son v wolves.

    4. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Everyone ups their performance against Man City. Plus will suit Arsenal to play on the counter-attack.

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Shite trying hard is still shite.

      2. No Professionals
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Hard to counter attack from kick offs

    5. Giggs Boson.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      City's offensive points tend to be widely distributed.

      Aguero 39%, KDB 37%, Sterling 26%

      Happy with Jesus & KDB, but wouldn't get one in for the game.

      1. Giggs Boson.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        By comparison:

        Pukki: 73%. Ings: 67%, Rashford 56%, Abraham 52%, Vardy 49%, Son 48%

    6. villa_til_i_die
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I’ve finally ditched him too, Sod’s law he’ll haul this week. Sterling seems a good differential now!

  8. Pariße
    • 4 Years

    AFTV is all that’s wrong with this club. Reality show making stupid people famous, no one can identify with that, even the players feel it.

    1. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      They should do live half time vlogs from the stadium

      1. Pariße
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        All of it.
        Utopia: Robbie will soon be rich enough to buy the club, all the other muppets can take turns as managers.

      2. Dannyb
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        ^this, would be incredible

    2. Deulofail
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Good point.
      Well made.

      1. Deulofail
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Oops. Reply fail.

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      AFTV is good entertainment for non fans but if you watch it as an Arsenal fan you are a joke. Its just comedy laughing at the club and the fans parading as a show for people who are concerned about the club.

      1. Pariße
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Exactly, it’s a waste of time and brain cells. The biggest problem is that their existence makes new and old fans hard to associate with the club. How can you start supporting Arsenal if this is the group of people you “belong to” by doing so?

    4. Bookkeeper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      most of them have a weak understanding of the game. Having said that, I don't listen to them for their football knowledge, it's the meltdowns which I tune in for!

    5. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I can see loads of things wrong whilst not knowing what you are talking about

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Oh wait, the fan TV thing right? Fans overestimate their importance

      2. Pariße
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        See above. They’ve created an important platform for not only spreading negative energy but making the club extremely unattractive. The fans are there to support, these guys don’t even do that and lack the mental capabilities to produce anything that’s beneficial.

    6. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I don't even waste my time to watch AFTV, a lot of ranting with little to no substance.

      1. Pariße
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Me neither, but us not watching doesn’t mean they don’t exist and add to other people’s perception of Arsenal.

      2. Bookkeeper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        in all fairness they have valid points to rant, they had to endure over 5 years of their board sticking by Wenger when it was clear they needed another manager. Secondly, the club just hasn't invested in players over the last 10 years.

        1. Pariße
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Id it true they didnt invest?

    7. _sidney_will
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Imagine being stupid enough to blame the problems of Arsenal on fans who pay thousands of pounds to see them week in week out - clueless!

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        AFTV earn thousands of pounds week in week out turning Arsenal into a joke while pretending they care about the club.

        1. _sidney_will
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Arsenals problems are far greater than AFTV - it’s been a downhill spiral since Kroenke’s takeover in 07

      2. Trophé Mourinho
          1 month, 10 days ago

          AFTV compounds the misery and puts off potential new players and managers off from joining the club. Its hilarious, AFTV will play a big part in the downfall of Arsenal.
          Who in their right mind would want to go there? This is onlt the beginning for Arseans problems, storm clouds are on the horizon

          1. Pariße
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            this

        • Pariße
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Yeah mate, seems like a bad way to distribute your personal finances. Big corporations (clubs) add to the poverty of these people, it’s only right they have their say, but who put aftv people in charge?

          Read all the comments I produced elaborating why this is an issue.

    8. ChelseaGuy

      Ogbonna ultimate troll?
      Goal vs Spurs

      Given the state of both teams I was expecting an entertaining mud fight between two pigs. Instead it's two pigs attempting to play chess, knocking the board over everytime they attempt to make a move.

      1. Deulofail
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        They should play giraffes instead

        Same. Holding off the Rashford switch for a week.

    11. Wild Rover

      Most boring game since the last one

    12. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Those without City will need a big sofa next GW. An agitated Man City side looking for vengeance vs one of the worst defences in the league.

      0-7?

      1. Bookkeeper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Sterly minimum two goals in that game.

        Jokes on you I’ll be blacked out from celebrating another captaincy haul the night before

      4. villa_til_i_die

        0-2

    13. TERIYAKI 69

      1 month, 10 days ago

      if a gun was placed on your head and you were forced to pick one of either Rashford or Tammy, who are you going with and why? For the next 4 to 6 games

      1. Dannyb
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Tammy

        1. TERIYAKI 69
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          why Tammy

      2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Rashford. Form of his life.

      3. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Am I being shot or choosing one of them to shoot?

        1. TERIYAKI 69
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          the latter.

      4. GARY AND JAMIE
        • 6 Years

        Shoot me Im sticking with Jimmy

      5. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Is the gun loaded?

        1. TERIYAKI 69
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          yeah ready to blow

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            Ok Id shoot Rashford

            1. TERIYAKI 69
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              why?

              1. Brosstan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                I own Tammy would be a shame if I had to transfer him out

      6. Make America Greta Again
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        I'd ask us the gun loaded. Rashy for me, Pulisic could cover Tammy. But worried as a non Chelsea owner with Bou next.

        1. TERIYAKI 69
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          thanks for your input

        I have two frees and Im honestly considering Mane -> Sterling. This Arsenal team will lose 10-0 to City

          smart move, considering Mane has a blank in 18. I really like this.

        I am considering getting Grealish for Villa's kind run of fixtures
        but I haven't watched any of their games till now.

        Is Grealish really playing good and having chances to score points or he is just too accurate?

        I'd be pleased if anyone can help me

          Talisman, C, holds ball excellent, dead balls & getting goals.

          Got him in two gws ago after looking at his stats and watching the highlights ... for his price why not punting ...

          If it was more convenient, I would bring him in. One of the best at his price atm

        What is it with Lacazette and Auba playing together?....The fact the previous manager didn’t start those two together week in and week out I put down to him just being a bit nuts...but already Freddy has done it...

        Is there something going on that we don’t know about?...I would have those two as first names on my sheet every single game without fail....and i’m sure most folk would. Any thoughts?

          I have no idea. The team should be built around those two.

        2. JoeSoap
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          I would play both them and maybe Pepe every week and build a team around them. Don't understand it either.

          Martinelli deserves a shot tbh. Lacazette has hardly inspired recently, which can't be said of Martinelli. Wouldn't be surprised to see both Auba and Laca benched soon to give the kids a run around. Nothing would surprise me at this point. No one is proving their worth besides Leno and the kids.

            I’m not surprised Laca is lacking in inspiration....how many times does he score to be followed by a benching. This was a chance to reinvigorate...but seems not...

            1. Deulofail
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Same for Martinelli though. Scoring shouldn't secure you a place in the XI

          They celebrate every goal together so its nothing with them, just two incompetent managers.

        6. Make America Greta Again
          • 6 Years

          Mystery. I would start Laca every game. I'd bring on Sub for the last 30 min of games to run teams ragged. Biggest puzzle is why Xakha gets a start.

          1. Polka Wakey O'Dot
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            The more people play together the better they become...it’s a well worn path, especially with forwards.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Emery played them both a lot but insisted on playing Auba as a winger.

          I guess it’s because 4-4-2 is out of fashion.

      16. JelliedSpark968

        Bench Trossard or Kelly?

        1. JoeSoap
          • 6 Years

          Trossard

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Looking on twitter this was the arsenal team the fans wanted to see before the game.

        Goodness

        Everytime the camera points to Freddie he is just sitting on the bench cluelessly. Hardly inspiring

          Most fans are clueless. They dont understand team balance. You cant field 4 lazy attackers and expect anything against any team in the PL.

          Not considering their fixtures in a few weeks time, given their form is already great.

        How is Lampard good enough for Chelsea and Freddy is not for Arsenal?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Lamps had practice at Derby.

        2. JelliedSpark968
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I don't think Freddy has had a managerial stint prior to this

        3. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Lampard joined Chelsea in a much better place than Freddy.

          Time at Derby surely helped too.

          Freddy isn't the problem though, the club is rotten.

          Any team that needs defenders & buys expensive mids is asking for trouble.

        5. Cheesyzoot
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Is this a serious question?

            All of the above, not to mention, Frank was leaps and bounds ahead of Freddy as a player

            1. JustPark
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Yeah. Because they picked him to fill the spot(even for temporarily) and judging by the responses, how the heck they made that decision? It's just baffling.

            Rashford’s has 7G 1A from 6 games vs Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs, Leicester City so far this season

            He has 3G 4A & 2 missed pens in the other 10 games

            Talk about being a big game player

                Great players but they never won the PL. The real Arsenal were at Highbury. Loved that squad in 03/04 & 04/05 season
