Who are the best Arsenal players to consider under Mikel Arteta?

Won one, drawn one, lost one: Mikel Arteta has had a so-so start to life as Arsenal manager by way of Premier League results.

Monday night’s victory over Leeds United in the FA Cup was also a Jekyll-and-Hyde display, with the Gunners very much second-best to their Championship opponents in the first half before drastically improving after the break.

While the scorelines haven’t always gone Arteta’s way, there have been visible signs of improvement under his stewardship.

Should Fantasy managers be renewing their interest in Arsenal assets, then?

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.8m) aside, we have largely dodged the Gunners this season: the Gabon international is the only one of Arteta’s squad who can boast a double-digit ownership in Fantasy Premier League at present.

FPL bosses may have been sufficiently scarred by Unai Emery’s team selections or the Londoners’ dismal away form in the preceding 18 months to be tentative about revisiting Aubameyang and co for now.

Still, the fixtures demand our interest.

Arsenal face only two of the current top seven between now and Gameweek 32 (the clash with Manchester City in Gameweek 28 may well be rearranged due to the Citizens’ likely involvement in the EFL Cup final) and sit fourth in our Season Ticker as a result.

With that in mind, we follow up our recent articles on Watford and Everton by looking more closely at the impact that Arteta has had on the Gunners.

    Too much options for Alli replacement is like a headache. Maddison, Martial, Richa, Mahrez, Dilva, Sarr - all make some points. Might just keep Alli in the end!

      got both salah and mane ?

      1. SH
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Yes, along with KDB and Grealish in a 352

        1. drughi
          • 10 Years

          ok nice, would go richarlison as alli replacement

            Differential. Good fixture. Just not convinced that Everton can keep it up

            1. drughi

              yeah next 6 looks nice and he is capable of hauls

                Might just get him, tired of assessing the options.

      Thought the midweek games would help deciding, but none of them really showed anything significant.

    3. MC Hammer
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Maddi or Graelish for long term

  2. Klein

    Vardy cappers yesterday's game gonna effect our decision?

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Nope

    2. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Yes imo, Southampton much stronger than Villa and could only muster one goal, that’s quite poor. Can’t see a battering for Southampton either. Still undecided but swaying from Vardy now, people expecting Vardy to pick up where he left off, ain’t that simple.

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        It was all one way traffic though with over 20 shots to 3.

        Also Southampton will set up differently to Villa - who are a much stronger proposition with Mings back.

        Don’t see a battering but Leicester must be favourites to score and Vardy the most likely candidate. He’s had a few hauls of course but it’s his consistency that puts him out front.

  3. Jullepuu

    How much more attacking threat does Sidibe offer in comparison to Holgate? Does Holgate get forward at all or is he a target for set pieces?

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Target for set-piece you can say but he is pretty good at spoiling those chances

      1. SH
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        But somehow he finds the ball. If I am not wrong he had one shot one target in each of his last 4 games - 3 being saved and a tap in ruled offside.

  4. drughi
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Armband goes to

    A. Jimenez
    B. KDB
    C. Salah
    D. Mane
    E. Vardy

    1. SH
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Was set on E, but leaning towards C now

      1. drughi
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        been on C all week but starting to wilt

    2. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Million dollar question

    3. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Vardy.

    4. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      A

    5. tucaoneo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Went from B to A

  5. JT11fc
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Any thoughts on my dilema?
    To accomodate Salah which trio looks best?

    A. Maupay Hayden Dunk

    B. Greenwood Grealish Stephens

    Current team
    Pope
    Trent Sidibie Lundy Gomez Kelly
    Mane KDB Rich Grealish Moura
    Vardy Ings Maupay

    1. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      So basically losing Moura, Gomez plus either Grealish or Maupay

    2. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      B but honestly, forget Salah in that case.

      1. JT11fc
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Ye i think ill just reasses after gw23

    3. seewhyaxe
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Get robbo instead?

      1. JT11fc
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Could well be the way to go

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Not sure Mo is worth it for an away double.

      If anything I’d lose Moura to Cantwell to get Robbo.

      Maupay has some good ones coming up

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Totally agree. 24 is just one week and people wrecking their teams.
        I find it odd that if you start the season with say Aguero and Kane in a team people say ' whats the point of owning a 12 M plus player if you dont capt him?".
        Come game week 25 thats exactly the situation and now it seems to be fine

        1. MC Hammer
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          It's all about capitalising at the right moments, Salah could make or break that DGW for us all

          1. Joggers Nipple
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Could do. Having rashford over greenwood or maddi over 4.5 could also work. As could holding kdb

        2. SackWenger
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          But you will have been able to capitalise and even the one you don't captain will be like a captain as you'll get two games from them. Add to that 4 games from your captain and 2 from say TAA, it's a very worthy gamble. The fall of the fixtures that GW with an FA Cup tie in between helps avoid rotation too as Liverpool will most likely rest the main players in the cup. Often a double gameweek is 3/4 days apart across the 2 games and more susceptible to rotation. Even with a slight niggle there is more time to make the 2nd game.

          1. SackWenger
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            With the pro's stated above, it's also the opportune time to play the TC chip.

      2. Amey
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        I'm DD & hopefully it goes well over those Mo Mane managers....

        1. Klein
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          I was gonna DD too. But dont think they can keep cs against wolves. So tilting toward DM but have to lose kdb in the process.

          1. Klein
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            That will also mean ill have to keep Chilwell who i want get rid of.

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 14 days ago

              I can see them getting 2 CS so went DD

          2. MC Hammer
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            But this is not just about Wolves, you will most likely be keeping these players for the next 5 or 10 games (or even longer) with their fine fixture run, plan for that.

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 14 days ago

              Exactly

      3. JT11fc
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Ye im also thinking long term too. Hope fully the next 2 gwks shed some more light on the situation

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 14 days ago

          I have Mo Mane but I’m treating it as a long term call - DGW could fall any which way after all

          My rationale is with TV of 107 plus I can afford the more expensive double up which should outscore the value double defence. The one compromise is a weak looking bench. Plenty of fire power elsewhere in starting eleven

          1. JT11fc
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Yes this is what we build TV for i guess. Im hoping one goodish sub then playing fodder should be enough now

            Who will you captain that week?

    5. Joggers Nipple
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I would leave Salah and stick with your team, looks good

      1. JT11fc
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Cheers. I have 3.0 itb bank and i have no idea what to do with it haha

        1. Joggers Nipple
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Gomez to Robertson?

          1. JT11fc
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Ye ill do that if i go DD but that leaves me with a front 8 plus 0.8 left. Maybe i just need to forget about the spare money and just look at points potential haha

    6. Jurgen Flopp
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      You might as well build the great wall of China in your living room if you planning on going into DGW without Salah. I was firmly in the DD camp, had Robbo and TAA this GW gone. But sold Robbo this week to manoeuvre Salah into my team for GW24. I just dont want that feeling of spoiling my underpants each time he gets a chance.

      1. JT11fc
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Haha well put. Thing is i have the funds but i just dont know who from my front 8 to drop

        1. Jurgen Flopp
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Looking at the fixtures beyond GW24, yes there will be clean sheets but there will be plenty of Salah braces too.

          1. JT11fc
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Exactly my thinking, having Double attack plus the usual assets will be a good differential too id imagine

            1. Jurgen Flopp
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              It gives you another solid captaincy option imo. Mane will get his share of points too but Salah on pens makes it a no brainer for me.

              1. Jurgen Flopp
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 14 days ago

                Salah is on 120 points for the season. Last season he 259 and the season before over 300. Plenty more points to come yet.

                1. JT11fc
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 14 days ago

                  Hoping for goals is more fun then tensly hoping your CS stays intact anyways

      2. MC Hammer
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Although I would love to have him I am not so terrified of Salah, he needs to get at least a goal and an assist to sneak those baps whereas Robertson can easily get a cleanie and an assist plus some baps to make up for it

  6. Bobby

      I’d be tempted to play Cantwell over Dunk

      United can’t keep cs even with Maguire and the Brighton double up is a big call

      Think Maupay is a hold if you have him looking at fixtures and decent form. Villa and Bournemouth is pretty much as good as it gets.

      Hendo imo given you already have Dunk.

    3. Amey

    1. MC Hammer

      Yes hold and get Mane for free, Sterling has a good fixture this week. You wanna think about a Liv defender as well depending on the money you have

  14. Taffer

    D Silva's ppg is 7.3 when playing over 60 mins this season, thinking he'll be a good diff over the next five weeks

    1. MC Hammer
      • 7 Years

      D Silva and Mahrez are really tempting but you gotta be patient and give them time and trust

    2. Klein
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      If you can handle the cameos he is solid. I cant and will transfer him out the moment he is not starting so i am staying clear.

      1. Taffer
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        think he'll start from this weekend onwards. but agreed, you get 4/5 games with him. still for 7.4 that's pretty good, very cheap compared to other City/ Pool mids.

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year

      Can afford him this GW 😮
      Not sure he's worth picking over Maddison though as Alli replacement

      I had him for several weeks. Got some good points, then turned bad, then I sold him for the useless Zaha and Silva immediately got 9 points. He is a legend. Don't mess with him.

    Morning dzz, Got 2FT's and 1m.

    Ryan -- Button
    Taa Lundy Aurier -- Otamendi* Rico
    Grealish Salah Kdb Martial* -- Stephens
    Vardy Ings Rashford*

    A: Otamendi >> Cathcart and do Martial / Rashford >> Mane / DCL in gw23.

    B: Ryan >> Fabianski...give Ota one more gw to see if he plays now that he is fit. Then still do the moves as per A but by gw24

    C: Otamendi >> Soy...and then Aurier / Martial / Rashford >> Cathcart / Mane / DCL by gw24

    D: Something else

      A sounds good

  17. Konstaapeli
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Thanks for the memories Aurier, but it's time to say good bye. Best cheapie to replace him? 4.8 to spend but there might be price chances that eat the budget.

    A) Stephens
    B) Guilbert
    C) Kiko
    D) Catchart

    Rest of the backline is Ryan, TAA, Sidibe, Lundy, Rico. Don't fancy Everton or Brighton double ups.

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      A

      1. Konstaapeli
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        That's my current plan.

    2. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Balbuena?

      1. Konstaapeli
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Good shout. WH defender could work out.

        1. sunzip14
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          He's 4.3 and has a dgw. That's the only attraction right now but if Moyes sorts out the defense and Fabianski performs to his best, could be a great enabler.

  18. sunzip14
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    How does this WC team look? Dropped the idea of getting 3 Pool players right now, hoping this allows to make the choice of double defense or double mid just before dgw24 depending on form and team balance.
    Did VVD+DCL> Lunds+Jimmy from my earlier draft as Jimmy has 2 great fixtures and I wouldn't be playing double Pool defense for the next 2 anyway. Also have Richa, so 3 Everton looked rather too much to have.

    Team:
    Ryan, Button
    TAA, Soy, Sidibe, Lunds, Williams
    KDB, Mane, Richa, Madds, Martial
    Vardy, Jimmy, Greenwood

    Does it sound like a good plan?
    1) Save FT next gw
    2) with 2FTs in 24, get either Salah or Robertson/VVD depending on form and team balance.

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Sounds good (on paper)

    2. MC Hammer
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I wouldn't be planning transfers on a WC, make it work for the next few weeks so you're not restricted by other issues coming up

      1. sunzip14
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        I'm not planning for the next week though. And also, it is for a reason as there is a dgw in 24 and getting double mid or double defense from Pool is a burning question right now. Might get clearer near the deadline on the better option. I know what you are suggesting though. That is why I bought Lundstram now instead of 25 which was the earlier plan. Thank you for the input.

    Anyone else fear that KDB could be rested this weekend?
    Might want to captain him but Pep rotations puts me off a bit.

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Keep wondering about when it will happen. But KdB Sterling have more minutes this season than both Mo and Mane.

      Has Pep really shaken things up this season that much? Defensive changes have been largely dictated by injury and the need to bring Ota on for one pointers. Up front Kun Jesus has been less predictable but that’s pretty much it.

      Heretical thought I know

    2. maratus
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Well, KDB seems the most essential city player for the squad.
      Wondering when he will get rested is just waste of time. KDB is season keeper anyway.

  20. arndff_

    What’s the correct bench order?

    Rico (WAT) • Dendo (NEW) • Kelly (ARS)

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Looks right that way to me

      1. arndff_
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Cheers

    2. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Correct

  21. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Think 0.1 on Holgate won’t happen which leaves me choosing one of this lovely lot to start

    Rico
    Kiko
    Kelly

    Any strong opinions?

    1. arndff_
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Kelly might lose his place soon.

      BOU are so unpredictable.

      I’d go for Kiko — they’ve started looking good since the new manager got appointed.

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Think Kelly is safe for a while in fact

        As a Palace fan I’m “confident” no new signings will come before deadline day. Even if Ward returns then Kelly will almost certainly shift to the left where there is less than no be available.

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        But sort of agree on Rico - I’ve failed each time I’ve played him and I’m generally allergic to Bournemouth defence. 59th minute Kiko might get another whirl.

        If I go Rico it’ll be because he has the biggest upside and as they’re all likely 2 pointers I may as well gamble

  22. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Captain:

    A) Vardy (SOT)
    B) KDB (avl)
    C) Salah (tot)

    1. arndff_
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Should be A

  23. Dare Do The Punt
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Is Maddison still worth bringing in with the Ndidi injury?

    I'm just concerned he will sit deeper and have to defend more.

    1. arndff_
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      LEI have a blank in GW28, so I’d say no. Owners could keep him for next few but I wouldn’t buy him now.

      1. MC Hammer
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Wait what? Blank? Who else?

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        No one blanks in 28. Just West Ham and Pool have a second fixture.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Ignore this. Not enough coffee

        2. Mike2795647
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          City are likely to have their fixture changed in GW28 as will Leicester or Villa as it’s the League cup final on 1st March.

          Not sure why the reference at this stage to Leicester when it’s not a done deal though, more like City will be alright after their win earlier this week though.

    2. MC Hammer
      • 7 Years

      He's still on FKs so will do alright but was he injured last night?

    Aurier replacement needed .3 in the bank

    Any ideas?

    Soy ? Holgate?

    1. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Why replacing him ?
      Spurs will win with CS

      1. Arteta
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Versus the Reds? Sure thing.

      2. NOMONEY
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        they are struggling to keep CS, let alone being against pool

    2. Bojaninho

      These were all very helpful 😀

  25. balint84

    1. NOMONEY

      B and C are close, and when in doubt in fpl, go for the cheaper one

  26. King Kohli

    If Lei blank in gw 28 due to the LC final, any idea which gw it will be rescheduled?

    Thinking Vardy potentially a better option to TC than Salah or Mane?

          im not confident with watford myself, i get that they are having a turn of form, but their points seems to be shared among a few attacker - doucouré, sarr, deloufeu, deeney

      Not before Toon at home

    4. NOMONEY
