How Arsenal’s FPL assets fared under new manager Mikel Arteta on Sunday

Arsenal 1-2 Chelsea

  • Goals: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.8m)| Jorginho (£4.9m), Tammy Abraham (£7.8m)
  • Assists: Calum Chambers (£4.4m) | Mason Mount (£6.4m), Willian (£7.1m)
  • Bonus: Aubameyang x3, Willian x2, Abraham x1

Arsenal are showing signs of improvement under new head coach Mikel Arteta but they remain a work in progress and Fantasy managers will perhaps require further proof of an upturn in performance levels before they revisit the Gunners in earnest.

Arteta’s troops were the better team for large chunks of Sunday’s London derby and set about their visitors with venom, hassling and pressing Chelsea in the early stages in particular.

There were plenty of positives to take from this defeat.

The Gunners looked much better defensively than they had done under Unai Emery and more recently Freddie Ljungberg, with Chelsea not really carving out too many clear-cut opportunities until Bernd Leno‘s (£5.0m) error of judgement allowed Jorginho (£4.9m) to tap in Mason Mount‘s (£6.4m) floated free-kick delivery in the 82nd minute.

The sight of Pierre-Emerick Aubemayeng (£10.8m) haring back into his own half to help makeshift left-back Bukayo Saka (£4.5m) on more than one occasion was typical of the effort that the Gunners put in as a whole.

Even David Luiz (£5.7m) looked fairly competent at the back although the loss to injury of Calum Chambers (£4.4m), arguably Arsenal’s best centre-half on current form, could be a big blow.

Chambers limped off with what looked like a knee problem in the first half and Arteta said after full-time:

The doctors are assessing him. The first feeling he got, it wasn’t very positive.

Further forward, Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m) still looks short of his best but Mesut Ozil‘s (£7.2m) renaissance continues, with the German midfielder impressing again in the number ten role – although he still has only two attacking returns to his name this season and he ‘assisted the assister’ for the hosts’ goal.

Reiss Nelson (£5.3m) was also bright on the right flank while Aubameyang’s role on the opposite wing didn’t mean that he was hugging the touchline, as we will discuss in the Members Analysis section below.

It was the Gabon international who put Arsenal in front, nodding in a flick-on from Chambers from a set-piece situation.

Reflecting on the game, Arteta said:

I’m really disappointed with the result and the way we conceded the goals, and the timing of them as well.

I’m pleased with a lot of things that I’ve seen. I’m pleased with a lot of things we worked on in training that actually happened in the game, and how they bought into this.

But I’m disappointed to lose the game obviously. We had to sustain that level for longer periods against a very, very physical team like Chelsea.

Physically it was tough to maintain the level Chelsea play at at the moment. We are asking them to do something different, to play at a different pace, much more aggressive and at the moment [of the second goal] they suffered.

Chelsea excelled in a 3-4-3 against Tottenham Hotspur in Gameweek 18 but Lampard has now abandoned the wing-back system early in each of the last two games, with the Blues shifting to a 4-3-3 and sacrificing Emerson (£5.5m) after just 35 minutes on Sunday.

Lampard’s side unsurprisingly gained more control of the midfield with N’Golo Kante (£5.0m), Mateo Kovacic (£5.3m) and Jorginho reunited in the middle of the park but it’s the constant shapeshifting and the lack of a fixed formation that remains offputting to Fantasy managers, as we’re never entirely sure how the Chelsea boss will send out his troops.

The victory over Spurs was perhaps the high point of the last month and this was the latest in a string of underwhelming displays, even if there was a definite improvement in the second half at the Emirates.

As mentioned earlier, it was a Leno error, rather than a moment of magic from the Blues, that led to the equaliser.

The match-winner came from an incisive Chelsea breakaway, with Willian (£7.1m) teeing up Tammy Abraham (£7.8m) for the striker’s first goal since Gameweek 15.

Abraham had been starved of service for the first hour but came into the game in the final third, heading a decent chance straight at Leno in the 74th minute and blazing over with normal time almost up.

Willian and Mount were similarly peripheral until the final 30 minutes, although both banked their eighth attacking returns of 2019/20 with assists for Chelsea’s goals.

In defence, the need for improvement at left-back was again apparent after Emerson’s latest horror show.

Only five teams have kept fewer clean sheets than Chelsea this season and the improvement at the back has been only modest since August, with even Antonio Rudiger’s (£6.0m) return not really having the desired solidifying effect.

Reflecting on the match, Lampard said:

When we played as we did at Tottenham last week, I probably would have questioned my sanity if I had come to Arsenal and we played four at the back and it had gone that way in the first half-hour.

For me the main thing in the first half-hour was not the tactics, it was the spirit and the fight. Arsenal were quicker, we were lethargic, they were brave, we were nervous.

We changed and it got better. Mikel Arteta is not silly. He saw us play at Tottenham and found a way to pin our five back. We had three men marking one at the back and they had numbers in midfield and they won all the second balls, and that had to change.

The response in the second half was everything I wanted. We have been rightly questioned recently. Everton away would be a good one, a team that had life breathed into them by a new manager and we didn’t react and it was quiet after that game in the dressing room and I did not like that, and some of our home games recently were lacking something.

This is not a turning point, it is only a turning point if we show it going forward, but we showed we can have a right go and win a game in a different way. At Tottenham we won it by playing really good football from beginning to end and today we won it by showing fighting spirit. If we can put them together then we will have a chance.

Christian Pulisic (£7.1m) was nowhere to be seen on Sunday, with his absence explained as precautionary due to a hamstring strain.

Reece James (£5.0m) and Marcos Alonso (£6.0m) also missed out through injury, with teenager Tariq Lamptey (£4.0m) playing at right-back for the final half an hour.

    Pope 4.6, 4.0
    TAA 7.2, Soyuncu 4.8, Lund 4.6, Kelly 4.2, Reid 3.9
    Salah 12.2, KDB 10, Sterling 11.8, Alli 8.6, Grealish 6.3
    Vardy 9.8, Jiminez 7.3, Greenwood 4.3

    0.1 in the bank

    I'm looking to move Sterling on for Mane this week but I am 0.4 short. Luckily I have a second free transfer but I am struggling to see where I can extract the 0.4 from in my team. I've included the selling values of all my players.

    The only move I can see is Grealish to Traore, but I have been quite impressed with Grealish and he is value in my eyes, so if anyone could see an easier route to that 0.4 I'd love to hear your suggestions

      Grealish to fodder.

              1. LEWANGOALSKI
                  2 months, 8 hours ago

                  Yes I’m playing 4-3-3 since last week only as I thought getting Aguero in wd help, so shipped Maddison out

                    2 months, 8 hours ago

                    Aurier with limited CS is poor. Not enough differentials from rivals in most cases. Vardy, TAA and KDB should be in most of their teams.

                    1. Amey
                      • 1 Year
                      2 months, 8 hours ago

                      Yep
                      Aurier has been dreadful

                  2. Holmes (specialist in failu…

                    2 months, 8 hours ago

                    Save this week. I would look at Kun to some cheap forward and getting Mane for Grealish.

                    Aurier to Sidibe/Digne. Pope to Henderson. Couple of moves I make in upcoming weeks.

              2. LEWANGOALSKI
                  2 months, 8 hours ago

                  Common guys, any suggestions ??

                  • 1 Year
                  2 months, 8 hours ago

                  That midfield is too weak for me mate.
                  Fir starters I'd do Aguero Guendouzi to Ings/Maupay/DCL + Alli.

                  Alli is playing #9 literally. Will explode IMO. Also, Kun will be rotated as Jesus is back.

                  With some © luck you'll be back up in no time IMO.

                  And yes, do watch out for a differential every now and then. They are the ones that help us climb up.

                  I've taken the idea of having a differential 7th attacker all the time from the guys here. It works ...

                    I'm looking to replace Maddison but lost for options

                      Willian

                            Would love some Wolves exposure but not sure which is better. Need some advice!

                            A) Jimi + Cantwell

                              Who would you rather have. Alli or Kane?

                                If affordable, Kane

                              2. Winston.

                                Alli

                                2 months, 8 hours ago

                                Not considering money, Kane. Considering money, Alli

                                I actually think alli will outpoint him and he is cheaper

                                Alli
                                Even if kane was 7m I'd get Alli.

                                Playing so attacking role !

                                Anyone going treble Liverpool defence?

                                Looks like the cleansheets are flowing once again...

                                And KDB/Vardy are putting Mané & Salah to shame for much less budget

                                  That's alot of eggs in one basket. Even for liverpool

                                    Its actually less eggs than the Salah/Mane double up... a lot less eggs 🙂

                                      True. But then whos your big hitter in midfield. Nobody else is really firing besides KdB

                                        KDB & Salah are as big hitting as they get points wise!

                                  Can be a masterstroke.

                                  Taa Robbo enough for me though.

                                  You have a point though. Even though i own Mane from GW 9, I've Never © him !!
                                  Season took upward curve when i sold Raz Salad & stayed away from © them

                                  Haven’t you noticed, whatever someone says something like this.

                                  1. They stop keeping as many CS. (One every match isn’t sustainable)
                                  2. Mane or Salah will get a massive haul and it’ll again go back to them.

                                  Swings and roundabouts.

                                    Well no... because before Liverpool departed for Doha the beat on the street was ”TAA isn’t worth it because Liverpool aren’t keeping clean sheets” and “I can just sign TAA when liverpool start keeping cleansheets” 🙂

                                    Liverpool are easily the best defence in the league - they have by far the lowest goals conceded, and the lowest XGc - their cleansheet count is now starting to come into line with those stats, but it’s not there yet & there’s still a bit of a correction needed

                                    Not sure I’ll do it myself though, but the signs are there that it could be wildly profitable

                                      “Liverpool are easily the best defence in the league”

                                      They’re also the best attack

                                        KDB & Vardy are putting their attackers to shame though

                                  U want Baldock and Lundstram after Liverpool match. City only tough fixture after that for a while.

                                Tempted to use my FT and switch Salah to Mane...any reason why not ? Mane seems to be the pick for this season.

                                  You'll want both by GW24.

                                Thinking about Tammy to Jimenez, Grealish to Martial or Targett to someone - thoughts?

                                Henderson/Button
                                TAA/Soy/Lund/Targett/Rico
                                Mane/KDB/Dele/Grealish/Dendo
                                Vardy/Rash/Tammy

                                  Grealish Targett to Traore Doherty? Next 3 looking great

                                So...this wildcard team is making me happy. Seems solid

                                Fab
                                TAA VVD Digne Aurier
                                Mane KdB Ali Grealish Cantwell
                                Vardy Ings Rashford

                                I'm not convinced on Traore to play eveygamr tbh. Might swap Grealish for him but Grealish is the man at Villa, so will clean up...for what it's worth there

                                  He didn't start against Liverpool so he'll play against Watford for sure

                                  You're happy with Aurier?

                                    Yes, tbh I don't understand why everyone is shipping him.

                                    Tottenham will only get better at the back & for 4.9 he offers credible attacking returns. I'd say he has a few double digit hauls in him between now and the end of the season.

                                    Got rid of him. Had him since GW1 but I reckon he and Sheffield have had their time.

                                Should i play Greenwood against arsenal? He's likely to start

                                  Not going to start
                                  Away game, big match.
                                  Rashford Tony James will play to counter attack with deadly pace.

                                    Rotation tho and he started against tottenham. How r arsenal any bigger
