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′).

      Not sure I'd get rid of Jimenez to get Tammy

        Cheers. 3 blanks in a row and tough fixtures incoming plus a Southampton side thats in good form up next. Tammy has Newcastle and arsenal up next at least and then I can reevaluate.

      Lund to Holgate

      2 months, 25 days ago

      There’s no way Sarr is worth > 6m. Be more critical of value.

      Consider Hudson-Odoi, Grealish, Mount, Noble maybe for the DGW.

      DCL good fixtures but Ings would be an upgrade.

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 25 days ago

        You don't rate Sarr?

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          It’s not that he isn’t a good player but where’s the value? Van Dijk will score more, Deeney too. They’re not midfielders but we should be considering value across all positions.

          1. Bobby Digital
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 25 days ago

            VVD rocks, was close to scoring one again today. Such an entertaining player to own.

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

        Guess today is his test. Would probably sell Rashford if getting Ings.

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Hope he does well for you vs Bournemouth. Every chance.

          Could do Sarr + DCL > CHO + Ings

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

            Spent 2 transfers (-4) on those 2 this week so tricky to do it again.

            1. Twisted Saltergater
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 25 days ago

              Oh sorry, didn’t see that. There’s nothing urgent, I’m being ultra picky.

          Good team really, I like the Williams move, maybe Hanley to Williams? and save the other FT?

          1. Tony Martial

            Thinking this too!

            Would you wait on it though - considering I only have 1 FT?

            And the following week

            Hanley-Williams

            Soy-5.0?

              I think I'd do the Williams one this week yeah. Could go up this week (+82.7 and rising on fplstatistics) and Hanley flagged at 75%.

      Not sure on CHO minutes, but yeah probably save.

      1. The_Bucc
        • 1 Year

        Happy with him given Pulisic is out til mid Feb

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

          Is he out until then? I saw he posted on Twitter he said he wasn't actually injured?

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

    Auh overthinking I suppose :/

    Plan:

    GW23: Martial & Abraham ---> Moura & Calvert (for Spurs cover wat&NOR games, already have Rashford for UTD cover)
    GW24: KDB ---> Mane

    When decide to throw out Mane/Salah for KDB, then Calvert ---> Ings with rest of the money.

    A potential downside to this plan is that I have both Richarlison and Calvert but Everton's fixtures are pretty decent.

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

      Can you get Mane any other way? KDB will most likely stay in my team all season

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

        Only way: Richarlison, Rashford and Abraham ---> Mane, Calvert and 6.6 striker (Maupay/Deulofeu).

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

          I prefer this way, but I'm still not sold. Could you get TAA and Robbo any easier? Richarlison or Martial to Grealish or someone and bump up a defender?

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

            a) Richarlison, Abraham and Rico ---> Alli, Calvert and Gomez

            b) Richarlison, Abraham, Soyuncu ---> Alli, Ings, Gomez

            c) Martial, Abraham, Soyuncu ---> Moura, Ings, Robertson

            d) Martial, Abraham, Soyuncu ---> Grealish, Ings, Robertson

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

              C or D, but I'd wait and see how Villa play tomorrow

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

                Sorry, no money for C, only D :/

        2. Zico Senna
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          really don't see that as worth it at all.

    2. Nuno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Is dropping KDB to Mane/Salah the only way to get them?
      I wouldn't want to do it that way

  8. Nuno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    I think I'll change my question,

    Rashford to Ings?

    Gives me 2.4 ITB with another transfer to spare.

    Ryan
    TAA Lundstram Rico (Kelly Taylor)

      Rash could be injured... Wait for news.

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

        Yeah, my intention was not to keep him anyway

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years

      Team looks good.. Having problems finding transfers myself.

    3. Weilong7

      2 months, 25 days ago

      Maupay to Ings instead and keep rash?

  9. Bobby Digital
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Play Lunds (ars) or Holgate (whu)?

    1. Pigeon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Holgate, Lundstram might not play, he hasn't been playing great

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

        Play Lundstram and get bench points then 🙂

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

          And if he comes on?

    2. Nuno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Tough call, I'd be tempted to play Lundstram and look for attacking returns.

      Arsenal have only scored 5 in the last 6 games, Aubameyang scored 3 of those and now he's out

    3. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years

      Cheers

  10. Would Ed Woodward
    • 1 Year

    Could really do with Mane not rising tonight but looks like he is.

  11. Taegugk Warrior

    To transfer in
    A. DCL
    B. Ings

    1. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years

      Has to be Ings, DCL ain't cutting it for me, maybe i should give him more time, but....Ings.

  12. The EJJ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Got both Maupay and Jimenez. Which one to get rid of for Ings? both stinking up my team atm

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

      I'd keep Maupay mainly because of fixtures

      1. The EJJ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Yeah Villa up home next, 1 more opportunity i think

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

          He's got 8 decent fixtures in a row, always looks threatening and unlucky not to get a return today

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Jimenez plays midweek and Europa starting up again, so sold.

      1. Nuno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  13. Zico Senna
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Decent'ish this week again, 50 pts with KDB (C) to play tomorrow, hope y'all did well this GW so far.

    I face a dilemma as i now want to keep Rashford like many, how the hell do i bring Ings in here?

    Fabianski
    TAA - Lundstram - Robbo
    Martial - KDB - Mane - Maddison
    Rashford - Vardy - DCL

    1. Bobby Digital

        That's true, i reckon he should be ok though for next GW, could be wrong though, and i have Martial anyway i guess. Missed all the rises on Ings so far so what's another 0.1 hehe.

          I don’t think there’s a rush for ings at the mo

            • 8 Years

            Yeah i guess, there have been better times to jump on that's for sure.

      Rashford may have injury and is flagged- can you do DCL to Ings and Maddison to Grealish or Sarr?

      1. Zico Senna
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        I sure can.
        Can do DCL > Ings and that leaves 6.8m for a mid if i then took Maddison out.

    Not owning ManU killed my rank this week so will really appreciate your help guys.

    What’s the 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

    love how you're all getting ings when he's got two tricky games in a week, good timing

    1. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Haha i know, i confess.
      Do you already own him?

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

        nope just sold

        1. Zico Senna
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          You sold him? That's the first time i've come across an Ings seller hehe. Was it at least for someone good or an enabler for a pool mid or something?

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

            Deulofeu. Hopeful he'll top 5pts 😎

    3. sandman58

      Scores against anyone

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

        he can yes but it's saints not Liverpool

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

          He scores against Liverpool too, and he only played 26 minutes in that one

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

            Adrian won't be playing next time

    4. Nuno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I fancy Ings against Wolves

    5. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Has shown himself to be pretty much an all-fixture man though

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

        He played 90 minutes on Saturday 28th December and 75 on Wednesday 1st January, scored in both

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          The man’s an enigma

  18. KingOllie

    Martial + chilwell > grealish + Robertson for free?

    1. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Maybe wait for Robertson potential ban 🙂

      1. KingOllie
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Oo ok thanks

      2. Rhinos
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        zero chance of that

      3. Zico Senna
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        ban? for what? This is news to me

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

          dangerous tackle that for some reason wasnt penalised at the time

          1. Zico Senna
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 25 days ago

    Couple of moves could get me this team for DGW 24- good or not?

    Ryan

    Vardy Firmino Ings

    Button Cantwell Lundstram Kelly

      Nice

    2. Don Kloppeone

      Yeh decent team if you fancy Bobby delivering

    3. Soto Ayam
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I'll never be convinced on firminio as an fpl asset, but if your happy, go for it.

  21. marzo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Some ideas.
    1. Ramsdale -> Ryan.
    2. Maupay -> DCL.
    3. Tammy -> Ings. (Leaves 1.1m).
    4. Soyuncu -> Masuaku + Maupay -> Ings. ( exact cash).

    Ramsdale.
    TAA, Soyuncu, Holgate.
    Grealish, KDB, Mane, Salah.
    Maupay, Abraham, Vardy.
    Stek, Lundstram, Dendoncker, Williams.
    2 ft's, 0.2m ITB.

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

      1. Ramsdale hasn't played yet, his fixtures look decent though
      2. Maupay looks to have better fixtures over the long term
      3. I'd do this one
      4. No

  22. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Sense check before I do it. About to pull trigger on this move:

    Maddison, Guaita > Salah, McCarthy (-4)

    This will give me:
    0itb
    McCarthy
    TAA, Lunds, Soy
    Salah, Mané, KDB, Martial
    Vardy, Ings, DCL
    (McGovern) (Cantwell, Rico, Willems)

    Willems > Holgate or Cathcart in GW24

    Thanks!

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

      Why not just save the FT this week and do the double Liverpool in GW24?

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

        Fancy Salah to do something decent vs that MUN defence and McCarthy will have risen before next GW, pricing me out

    2. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 25 days ago

      If its for the long run you might aswell do it.

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

        Yep it is. Just pulled trigger. Gut said go for it!

  23. Soto Ayam
    2 months, 25 days ago

    LFC gonna 1 - 0 it all the way to the League title. 2 defenders and 1 mid is the way to go. Unfortunately, I went the other way.

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

      Flawed logic. Not going to suddenly stop playing for goals. Salah and Mané will still be up there competing for goals imo

    2. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I could totally understand if Salah was doing show stopping things, but i'm not seeing much to justify him over a defender. Went 2 defenders and Mane and allows me to keep other players too.

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

        I don’t have a high TV and I’ll have Salah, Mané, TAA, Vardy, KDB, Ings and Martial with a playable bench.

        I know you’re all for the defence though mate.

        1. Zico Senna
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          That's pretty cool actually, only difference there with us is i've no Ings or obviously Salah.
          Oh, don't get me wrong, last GW i was considering moves for a Mane/Salah combo, just out of interest to see if i could do it.
          Only way would hae been Rashford + Martial + Robbo > Ings + Salah + 4.8 DEFJust dunno if that's worth it, especially now that i have Fabs now to deal with ;(

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

            Yeh I agree mate that doesn’t sound worth it!

            Pretty sure double def will also pay dividends tbh!

            1. Zico Senna
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 25 days ago

              If United had someone much harder that GW24, i may of decided to do it, but burnley is too good to get rid, so on the whole not worth it, agreed.
              Yeah i'd say that too, i think either option is gonna be good 🙂

    3. Soto Ayam
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Gw 24, taa TC

  24. RyanMK
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Planning ahead to bring Salah in for GW24. Which sounds better?

    A. Maddison + Abraham > Salah + Greenwood
    B. Richarlison + Abraham > Salah + Greenwood
    C. Richarlison + Abraham > Salah + Ayew

    1. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 25 days ago

      A. Vardy is enough coveragefor Leicester imo

  25. Nuno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Rashford to Ings? Yes or no?

    1. Soto Ayam
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Yay

    2. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I'm awaiting Rashford news. If it's just to catch the price rise, then no.

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

        Plays a part in it, I guess.
        Held on to Rashford for a while, plan was for Norwich to be his last game for me.
        Not sure if a double digit haul changes anything

        1. Zico Senna
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Can understand that, it was my initial plan as well, was giving him Norwich and if he did nothing i'd of shifted in a heartbeat. He does have this knack of popping up with more than one goal though, and pens, it's a good player to have, but then so is Ings. A tricky one.

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Not sure on this one. Still think Rashford is a great option for the rest of the season, particularly if Man Utd make the rumoured signing in the midfield department in January. Ings + Vardy + Rashford seems the ideal front 3 to me.

  26. Willmissudimitrypayet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Best GK to bring in for Fabianski?
    Mccarthy?

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

      dont even know if out yet

    2. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Same dilemma here, thinking either Hendo to double up with Lundstram, or McCarthy and bank the extra 0.6, or even Foster, really unsure.
