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′).

    That sucky feeling when your first sub already has 10 points in the bank and you're praying that KDB or Grealish come down with a stomach virus tonight

    1. Twisted Saltergater

      I’m hoping Mendy doesn’t feature!

      1. Bobby Digital

        That bench.. ouch. I like your WC though, not fully template.

          Thanks 🙂 I have moments of clarity to make up for the ridiculous punts the rest of the time! Usually start to recover my rank around this time of the season.

      It;s so strange, i had a funny feeling that Dendoncker would probably grab something this GW. Anyhoo, wouldn't of changed anything as was always gonna bench him.

    3. Brooksy86
      • 3 Years

      Banking on a KDB 18 pointer myself...

  2. Nabs Kebabs
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Pope
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram
    Salah KDB(c) Maddison Grealish
    Vardy(vc) Rashford Ings

    Henderson Martial Rico Kelly

    1FT, 1.3m

    Thoughts on saving for a week then using 2FT to go Maddison + Martial -> Mane + Dendoncker? Obviously don't need the bench headache everyweek with the 8 attackers and would be nice to have the Liverpool double in midfield for the upcoming run. Can afford 0.1m increase on Mane (possibly in 10mins) before being priced out.

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

      Looks good to me

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

      I may also bench Martial if I keep him but feels so wrong

      1. Nabs Kebabs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Not really to me. United aren't going to win that game and he's allergic to baps anyway. I see his ceiling at 7 points

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

      Hendo over Pope personally

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

        How do you think you'll do at Arsenal? I planned to bench Lund but might have to play him now.

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

          I think we'll do well. No Aubam is huge and we kept them at bay at home and seem to do better away. Honesty think we'll really frustrate them and could well nick it on a setpiece

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

            I think The Moose could be dangerous against that backline if he gets the nod.

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

              He'll defo start, could be huge on the counter. Got a weird feeling besic may start over Lundstram

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

            Even when Arsenal we’re dominating today they were not actually getting shots off.

      2. Nabs Kebabs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        are my Gunners THAT bad that you'd double defence against them 😯

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

    Worth doing Kelly to Billiams and bank the 0.2m?

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

    Aurier, Martial, Alli to Williams, Salah, Fleck? :/

  5. Scout15
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Is Rashford -> Greenwood an option if that seems to be the only way to bring Mane for DGW?

    1. Scout15
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      *considerable option

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

    After all thinking, Martial & Abraham to Alli & Ings seems the best move for me, but waiting for news about Rash. Spurs must scores against Watford and Norwich and Dele will be involved, and Ings doesn't seem to stop. TAA&Salah from Liverpool during this period.

    Ryan
    TAA, Soy, Lundstram, Rico, Kelly
    Salah, KDB, Alli, Richarlison, Cantwell
    Vardy, Rashford, Ings

    1. Blunder fc

      Rashford said he isn't injured.

    Slight drop to 31k but still think I'm sitting ok and happy with my week. 47 with Ramsdale and Kev to play.

      1. Would Ed Woodward

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

      47 without Rashford and KdB(c) plus Mendy to go. Happy.

      1. stupendous

      Vardy or KDB doing better in their potential doubles.

      1. Nabs Kebabs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Do we have enough information on those to decide to wait instead of going with Liverpool assets?

          No, hence why I won't.

    What’s with Rash? He should be ok yes?

    1. Nabs Kebabs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      OGS said it was precautionary. He shouldn't even be flagged imo.

      Fancied a hat-trick today but busy few weeks for us. Just a precaution and looking forward to getting back at it Wednesday

    No coincidence VAR went our way many times yesterday and many times this season. Ralph has said on multiple occasions that we keep a high line, and he heavily relies on VAR to correct any offside calls should the trap be seemingly beaten, no more "up for interpretation" calls.
    He's used VAR to his advantage in Germany with Leipzig before.

    In short, I love VAR 🙂

    Can't be bothered looking but what is Tangangas price and is he an option at any point?

    I know they are crap

      £4.0. Not the worst bench fodder

  18. davies

    Ryan or Henderson?

    1. Tsparkes10

      Dennoooo

      1. davies
        • 5 Years

        Finding it hard to transfer in with those next two fixtures

    Fancy maupay and Cantwell next week but probs let me down again

  20. JasonG123

    Calvert-Lewin still seems like a good option. Why is he being sold?

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

      probably rashford ings vardy seeming essential. I agree calvert lewin is a good option its just i can't see myself selling those 3

      1. Bouncebackability

        Rashford being sold because of the flag

        1. fgdu
          • 6 Years

          whats up with rash

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Hes really not that good imo. It just suits people to say he is as they try to give themselves piece of mind when transferring out Rashford, the player with 3rd most points in the game

  21. teneighty

    Drunk transfers are the best! Wohoo!

        Not Mane?

        1. Joggers Nipple
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          No. Easy move to defender. Keeps the team looking balanced moving past 24

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

        took my time as I used 9 hits in the first 15 GW's. Hopefully the TV above 108m can be put to good use now. Got all chips up my sleeve aswell

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

          I'm top5k with 104.5m 😛

            I'd rather be top 5k but let's see how well I can put the extra TV to use 🙂

            Will hopefully be having Salah, Mane, KDB, Rashford and Vardy next GW

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

              I've found it hard to find transfers this season.. been shuffling around my benchplayers to get rid of em.

        2. COK3Y5MURF - Unbelievable J…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          108 what in the hell... I've never even reached 106.

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

            Ditto

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

            trying something different this year...usually don't take many hits/make early transfers. Done it quite obsessively this season and it's been great fun

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

              I’m doing opposite... zero hits and only 16 trfs made.

      Sick team value! 😮

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

      58 with captain KDB is vvv nice. Doh was unlucky not to score

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        A decent GW for once and badly needed! Cheers mate!

    2. Vasqujg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      How many people got the donkey points - probably not many active players

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

        Yeah, you're right but still annoying benching double digits!

  25. Greek Freak
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Who would you rather keep, Jimenez or Lucas Moura?

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

      Moura short-term

      1. Greek Freak
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Cheers, would make a swap to Ings more straightforward as well.

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Jiminez

      1. Greek Freak
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        I'm getting tired of both of them to be honest, especially since I sold Abraham and Martial to get them in an ill-advised punt a few weeks ago. (Martial has since returned to my team but a lot of damage has been done)

  26. Nabs Kebabs
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Honestly how ridiculous is the Rashford flag? What "knock" are fpl talking about?

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

      Conspiracy!

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

      Keeping the price down- plus he has Liverpool next

      Some folks may not start him

  27. Nabs Kebabs
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Speaking of Rashford, still can't believe so few captained at home to Norwich.

    1. COK3Y5MURF - Unbelievable J…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I've captained him twice, and he blanked both times. Just didn't trust United as they're unpredictable.

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

        exactly, we can't be trusted at all this season!

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

        Same

    2. jia you jia you

      Captain hindsight speaks 😉

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

          Captaining players v Norwich is an easy shout but was still a punt considering our form minnows (albeit it would've worked out well haha)!

          1. jia you jia you

  28. kyrgios

    Best Fabianski replacement?

    Abraham or Jimmy to Ings?

    1. Greek Freak
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I'd sell Jimenez of the two. I'm in the same boat about keepers, and I'm undecided between McCarthy and Ryan.

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

    Finally in the top 20k. Kdb and grealish to play. Expect that to go down today with so many people captaining kdb.

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

      KDB 111% EO in top 10k 🙁

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

        Still want him to score well... Points are always good imo.

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

      Grealish is your sword there.

      1. A Fat Spanish Waiter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Yup...what TM said. If grealish goes off, your rank will go up. The reverse if KDB goes off. FWIW, I have the exact same scenario (except my rank is worse than your rank). 🙂

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

          KDB won't hurt much regardless.

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

        Big time.

  30. BDA Shadow
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Quite thrilled with 7/9 returns so far, but absolutely no bonus has left it fairly underwhelming points-wise.
