Aubameyang red card masks Arsenal progress under Arteta

Crystal Palace 1-1 Arsenal

Goals: Jordan Ayew (£5.0m) | Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.8m)

Assists: Cheikhou Kouyate (£4.9m) | Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m)

Bonus Points: Ayew x3 Kouyate x2 Aubameyang x1

Jordan Ayew (£5.0m) rescued a point for Crystal Palace against a dogged, and arguably unlucky, Arsenal.

Fantasy managers looking for further evidence of Mikel Arteta’s benign influence on the Gunners found it in abundance during the first half at Selhurst Park.

The visitors controlled the match up until the break, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.8m) giving them a deserved lead when he produced a no-nonsense finish from Alexandre Lacazette‘s (£9.3m) astute pass.

Arsenal under their new manager are already a mile away from the disjointed mess they were towards the end of Unai Emery’s reign, with left-back Sead Kolasinac‘s (£5.2m) frequent forays down the flank covered by Granit Xhaka (£5.1m) and the entire team defending as a unit when required.

But a combination of the high wind and Palace’s standard obduracy meant the Gunners couldn’t turn their early fluency into a second goal.

And everything changed after half-time.

The influential Lucas Torreira (£4.7m) had to be replaced at the break, with Arteta’s initial diagnosis a vague one.

“It looks like (an injury). He had to come off at half-time. I don’t know (what it is). I’ll have to check with the doctor.” – Mikel Arteta

What did become clear was how well Torreira and Xhaka had nullified Palace’s midfield, because without the Uruguayan, Arsenal struggled to contain their hosts, who were level within ten minutes of the restart.

Cheikhou Kouyaté (£4.9m) fed Ayew, whose shot took a big deflection off David Luiz (£5.7m) on its way past Bernd Leno (£5.0m).

Things then turned from bad to worse for Arsenal when Aubameyang was shown a red card, following an intervention by VAR, for a challenge on Max Meyer (£5.2m) that might have been lacking in malice, but was definitely mistimed and decidedly ugly.

The Arsenal coach had no complaints with the decision.

“I just watched it and it looked nasty, to be fair. Knowing Auba, there’s no intention to make such a tackle. Hopefully, he hasn’t been injured and we are sorry for that. The decision was made and we have to accept it.” – Mikel Arteta

His Palace counterpart, Roy Hodgson, was not so hopeful that Meyer had escaped without injury.

“The position of his ankle as the challenge comes in is not a pleasant thing to see. I’d be very surprised if there isn’t any ligament damage there, but we won’t know that until Monday.” – Roy Hodgson

Pre-Arteta Arsenal might well have crumbled after the dismissal, but there was none of that at Selhurst Park.

They rode their luck when a looping header from James Tomkins (£5.0m) had to be cleared off the line, but even better chances came at the other end, with Nicolas Pépé (£9.1m) seeing his shot brilliantly tipped onto the post by Vicente Guaita (£5.1m), who then bravely saved the rebound at Lacazette’s feet.

A win would probably have flattered the Gunners, but their defensive solidity was generally impressive – Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£4.6m) did a particularly good job keeping Wilfried Zaha (£6.8m) very quiet – and their front three are likely to prosper against less well-drilled opponents.

Unfortunately for Fantasy managers, the most in-form of that trio, Aubameyang, won’t be adding to his three goals from the last four Gameweeks as he’ll now be suspended for the next three matches.

Arsenal have a very attractive long-term schedule, but investing in their improved defence still feels risky on the evidence of Arteta’s first three league games in charge.

Lacazette and Pepe might step up in the absence of Aubameyang, but Mesut Ozil (£7.2m) was little more than a bit-part player against Palace.

As for Roy Hodgson’s side, their defenders remain the best bet for points as they embark on a good eight-match run during which the first fixture, away at Manchester City, is by far and away the toughest test.

Zaha continues to be a misfiring luxury, while new loan signing Cenk Tosun (£5.7m) was starved of service during his 22-minute debut – a state of affairs he will probably have to get used to when playing for a side who’ve managed a league-worst 213 attempts this season.

Crystal Palace XI (4-5-1): Guaita; Riedewald, Cahill, Tomkins, M Kelly; Zaha, McCarthy, McArthur, Kouyaté, Meyer (Tosun 68′); Ayew.

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Kolasinac, D Luiz, Sokratis, Maitland-Niles; Xhaka, Torreira (Guendouzi 46′); Aubameyang, Özil (Martinelli 70′), Pépé; Lacazette (Nelson 90+2′).

      I'm really tempted with the Liverpool fixture and the extra £ it frees over selling Jimenez... bugger

  6. mikeycee93

    Guys I'm stressing & need advice...

    Should I wildcard from

    Guita Button
    Chilwell TAA Lundstram Rico Dunk
    Mane KDB Martial Grealish Traore
    Vardy Rash Greenwood
    3.6m in the bank (Already done Zaha > Grealish so 0 ft)

    to

    McCarthy Button
    TAA Lundstram Digne? Rico Stephens
    Mane KDB Martial Grealish Salah
    Vardy Ings Greenwood

    Plan would be to have triple Liverpool for DGW then transfer out salah for someone, chuck ings or greenwood back to rashford and get a different midfielder in.

    No one wants to talk about auba replacements? I thought there would be lots of people panicking.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Good. Worked hard defensively; stats say he was actually had more shots and chances than Salah... although watching it, you'd say Salah was more involved.

    2. dunas_dog

          Its tempting. I remember my first year in Liverpool. I knew I would be a good signing, thats why I used my own name on this forum.

    2. JamieNumber4
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 25 days ago

      A - Rashford absolutely essential. Only player in the league pretty much guaranteed a penalty every week

      1. Firminoooo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Cant take it anymore. Allways a penalty or a late goal.

      missing some trent. in for guklbert in a heartbeat

    5. MattysFantasyFooty
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Thanks lads so do most of you recommend double defence over Mané Salah? As I was considering doing Rashford to Ings this week then for gw 24 guilbert to Gomez and Maddison to Salah for a hit

      1. Macam Dave
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        I've got mane Salah but had it couple week. If it's gonna cost you lots of transfers and or hits I'd go double defence as prob easier to get to I'm guessing

        1. MattysFantasyFooty
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          It would cost me a -4 before the dgw

          1. Macam Dave
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 25 days ago

            It's a coin toss so go with your gut as anyone one here you ask is only doing the same and I trust my gut over someone else's!

            1. MattysFantasyFooty
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 25 days ago

              True however nothing I’ve done this season is right so might just listen to the majority as I’m doing woeful this year

  14. woodles
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Fabianski to McCarthy?

    Is there any downside i’m missing? Good fixtures until end of the season, Southampton looking very solid and he’s an absolute bargain

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

    It’s getting more and more complicated, but after dropping out of 10k (Not owning MU negative impact) will need your help guys.

    What’s Th best combo for Dgw24 to accommodate a 3rd Liv player
    1) SALAH - Grealish - Maddison and fodder, play 3-5-2 (Connoly/ Greenwood as a fodder)
    2) SALAH - Grealish - Jimenez and fodder, play 3-4-3 (Hayden as a fodder)
    3) ROBBO/VVD - Martial -Maddison - Jimenez
    4) ROBBO/VVD - Maddison - Rashford and fodder, play 3-4-3 (Hayden as a fodder)

    Ramsdale
    Taa Soy Lundstram
    Mane Kdb Maddison Grealish

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Why sell Rashford?

        3. D.Glynn
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Would that leave you with benching headache? Not sure I'd like to sell Rash.

            Not saying I feel great about selling rash but a)he won't return Vs pool next game which softens blow and b) rash dend Vs Ings Grealish feels good trade no? My plan to mitigate is to try get martial in following week for United cover given do have 3 home games coming up as martial has outscored rash over last 4

    1. g40steve

      Watching MOT looks like reoccurrence of the original injury, done as soon as kicked ball.

    2. woodles
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I’d say no chance. It’s a recurrence of his hip injury that kept him out for months. I’m thinking he’ll miss about 8 games

        My own decision making probably.

      Dubravka was man of the match.

    Perreira, Aurier, Alli to Robo, Rich, Holgate just doesn't look right for some reason :/

      Lots of faith in the city of liverpool but nothing wrong with that atm

      Well Leicester don't look as solid without Ndidi so I'd prefer Robbo. Any way of upgrading Ali to Salah or Mane instead?

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Not really mate. Without losing Martial also

  22. Cech's Magic Hat

    I think my choice for gw24 comes down to this:
    A. Rashford, maddison, robbo
    B. Jimmy, mane, soy

    Basically can't afford mane without selling rashford. A also leaves more itb for other upgrades.

    What would you do?

    1. Grievez
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Get Gomez?

      1. Cech's Magic Hat
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Surely lower potential than robbo and mane?

    2. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Same dilemma. Mane could hurt us big time if he hauls, but I dont like to make my decisions out of fear.

      1. Cech's Magic Hat
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Yeah ml rivals tend to have mane. Definitely scared of missing out but also robbo could be diffential..?

    Need to start planning my third Liverpool player to go with TAA and Mane.

    Best option:
    a. Robbo Grealish Rashford
    b. Salah DCL Holgate
    c. Salah Rashford Fleck (will rotate as 4th mid with Cantwell)

    1. D.Glynn
      2 months, 25 days ago

      C for me

    Tammy to ings worth doing tonight before price rise??

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Nah

    2. MidTableFantasy
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I did it, Chelsea could do well against Newcastle but Ings is too hard to ignore

  26. Dynamic Duos
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Its mad, I (c) Rashford and planned to sell him this time to fund Tomori to Robbo, but now that Jiminez blanked I want to sell him and get Gomez instead, really confused

    1. JamieNumber4
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Keep Rashford. Only player in the league virtually nailed for a pen every week

  27. T.Henry14
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Spurs asset:

    A) Son & Calvert
    B) Alli & Ings

    Well... Has the Salah/Mane double up become any clearer after today??

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years

      Another clean sheet so 2 or 3 defenders are winning.

    2. Patrick.22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Clear as mud.

      Although I think the value is in defence. Plus having just Mane eliminates the captaincy conundrum. He also seems to be more reliable away from home (both of the DGW games are away)

      1. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Iv been putting away money for Salah but will cost 2 fts (plus Fabianski injury means iv no keeper at the moment) and sell Rashford to be able to keep kdb.

        All a bit complicated..

        Rico➡️Robbo
        Dcl➡️Ings is much more simple but won't gain much on rivals playing safe....

    3. JamieNumber4

      Clearer in what way? I think the Liverpool situation’s been pretty clear from the start - you get Salah/Mane/TAA - if you can’t afford that you get TAA/Robbo and whichever of Salah or Mane you prefer

    4. SH
      • 5 Years

      Salah atm

  29. SH
    • 5 Years

    Decent week, yet having no Rashford hurt in the ML. Any early thoughts for this lot? 1FT, 1.1 itb

    Pope
    TAA Lund Soy
    Salah Mane KDB Martial Grealish
    Vardy Ings

    Button Holgate Rico Greenwood

    1. dunas_dog

      Very good- perhaps move Pope to Ryan or McCarthy or carry transfer

      1. SH
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Cheers! Contemplating a GW24 of Pope, Martial, Greenwood to McCarthy, Hayden, Rashford. Could get McCarthy now

  30. Moose™

    Ryan Alli Grealish Tammy > McCarthy Salah Dendo Ings

    Just have enoughb ITB. Do it?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      No - would not want to lose Ryan and Grealish
