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′).

      Let the midweek games play.
      Martial could get injured etc.

      1. Nightf0x

        Anyway benched vs liverpool

  2. pakornk

    Rashford and Martial owners, what to do?

    Keep or sell one? Next gw not great but 2 fixtures after that look juicy.

    1. MSN
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      I would like to keep both but sell Martial first if forced.

    2. Greek Freak
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      I'd keep - sure, it's Liverpool, but United are a great counter-attacking team.

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Keeping Rashford. If we somehow sign Bruno Fernandez, he'll be brilliant

    4. BrutalLogiC
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Thinking of selling both, Rash to DCL/Maupay and Martial to Salah. That was the plan last week when I brought in Martial for 1 game with view to going Mane/Salah/TAA for gw24

    5. Nightf0x
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Sellimg martial

  3. pakornk

    • 3 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    can someone tell me the logic where you can only hold 2 transfers per gameweek? If your team is ok and you dont want to sell anyone, shouldn't it be your right to carry that transfer to next week (then you'll have 3 free transfers or more)?

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Don't sell then. Helps your rank with less transfers.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Hopefully I'll be able to do it once that in my career 😀
        Too impatient tbh

    Morning all.
    Hope you are having a good week.
    Had a © fail this GW myself in Mane.
    Please select one of below.

    Which one will muster more points ??
    Other player will come next GW anyways.

    A. Pope >> McCarthy
    B. Willian >> Son

    Thank you

      don't like either move tbh, son if u must

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Sonny is a gut feeling move. I think he'll be great for next few GW's with Kane out. Should have scored yesterday too

        1. SAY MY NAME
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 18 days ago

          normally i would agree with that move, but mourinho has indicated he doesn't want son in that central role, and mourinho seems to have quickly reverted to old unhappy mourinho, BUT, if i had to punt on spurs , Son would be the one

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 18 days ago

            Agree with that tbh.
            They have to score goals.
            Sitting back against pool was always expected

            1. SAY MY NAME
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 18 days ago

              worth a shot as long as you have other bases covered (eg liverpool)

      See how Watford and Wolves do midweek.
      Not much to be gained by A if they concede.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Watford have tightened up in general. But, Son OOP with NO KANE & Watford/Norwich is too good to ignore for me TM.

        Thanks

    4. MSN
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Son has the higher potential so B.

        How's your GW going ? Who's the © ?

        Bdw, I've gone for Sarr.

        1. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 18 days ago

          Okish, 41pts and a red arrow as of now. Vardy(c) so nothing special. Hopefully you are having a good week 😀

          Time to support Watford today 😆

          By the way I would look at Moura over Son from Spurs.

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 18 days ago

            Mane©
            But Other players did well.
            54 with Sarr KDB to go.

            Go Watford 😀
            Re Moura, Will monitor. I am looking at Sonny as possible next bandwagon tbh.

      I am planning Son rather than Mane tbh. Time to be different. I might move from vardy too

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Son ✓
        Vardy out ××××××

  5. MSN
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    Bit of a dilemma here.. I have Martial and would like to keep. But which is the best for next few gws?

    A. Salah + Soy + Grealish
    B. Son + Robertson + Grealish
    C. Son + Gomez + Martial

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Not a fan of Salah or Son. B if any

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 18 days ago

      B

  6. pakornk
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    A. Saiss, Salah, DCL
    B. Sidibe, Martial, Rashford

    1. MSN
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      B. The combination will score more than A long term. Better get Mane as Liverpool Capt option though.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Can’t comment without the rest of your team but double defence in a vacuum

    4. MSN
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      There's no correct option. Get the one you can with least damage to your team.

    Which is better option for the DGW? ta

    A. Salah(wol, wham) Holgate (NEW) DCL (NEW)

    B. Grealish (WAT) Robertson (wol wham) Rashford (BURN)

    Henderson,
    TAA, Chilwell, Lundstram, Webster, Rico
    Mane, KDB, Martial, Grealish, Alzate
    Vardy, Rashford, Ings

    A. Chilwell, Martial, Rashford -> Saiss, Salah, DCL (double Liv Mid)
    or
    B. Chilwell and Martial -> Robertson, Sarr (double Liv defence)

  11. HMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    Anybody considering going without Vardy to fund triple pool?
    I really want Firmino and currently looking at sacrificing Rashford but would losing Vardy be a) too maverick b) great differential

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Not to fund triple Pool but I'm considering Vardy to Jimenez in 26

      In your case, I wouldn't get rid of them since its for Firmino, pretty short term and inconsistent.

  13. BNMC

    Best mid with a 7.3 budget? I already own Grealish.

    1. antoinehude

      Sarr

      1. BNMC

        He was the one on my mind.

    3. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Willian or Moura or Sarr

  14. Disturbed

    Best Fab replacement besides Ryan or Henderson?

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year

      McCarthy ?

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1. Amey

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year

          McCarthy seems like the best pick if you want a cheapie

    3. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Henderson

  15. BNMC
    • 1 Year

    I really hope Wolves improve because they have great fixtures soon. Looking at getting Jimenez back and maybe even Doherty.

    1. BNMC
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 18 days ago

      From GW27 onwards*

    2. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 18 days ago

      If Almiron can score under 7 minutes against wolves. I don't think it is worth investing in that defence.

      Heck! I had Saïss starting in my team & they still conceded against an injury hit Newcastle side

  16. olidooley
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    That’s 6 clean sheets in a row for TAA and Robbo

    1. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Gomez has been the unsung hero

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Allison is one of the main reasons I guess. So is Gomez.

      Happy Taa Robbo owner past 2 GW's now.

  17. Holmes
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    Almiron next in watchlist, always wanted to own him in FPL after his MLS fantasy heroic!

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Really ?
      😀
      it's a trap Holmes

      1. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Just another option to look at in upcoming weeks 😀

        Pretty set on Willian and Moura though

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 18 days ago

          I'm selling Willian.
          You're buying him.
          GL buddy 🙂

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              8 months, 18 days ago

              Ahh
              Cool. Mount looks more dangerous than Willian tbh.

    2. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 18 days ago

    DCL still a good option?

      Yep

    damn the double rise of Mane & Ings. Now i can't do Aguero + Willian to Mane & Ings
    Any suggestions? Do I give up Mane and get in Robbo instead?

    2 FT, 0 itb

    Ramsdale, Button

    TAA, Soy, Lord, Rico, Holgate

    Salah, KDB, Maddison, Willian, Grealish

    Vardy, Aguero, Greenwood

    1. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      I would. Mane is pretty bad

        The best midfielder in the game is pretty bad?

    2. Amey

      8 months, 18 days ago

      Willian might go up himself

      1. seewhyaxe
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        would still be 0.1m short

    3. seewhyaxe
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Or should I do Ramsdale -> McCarthy first to get that funds needed

  22. IRBOX ⚽
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    Save here? Team is pretty mint

    Pope
    TAA Lundstram Holgate
    Salah KDB Maddison Richarlison
    Rashford Vardy Tammy

    Button Dendoncker Kelly Rico

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year

      Yep

    2. JasonG123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Tammy to Ings would be tempting, or Pope out. But probably better to save to set yourself up for 3 Liverpool next week.

  23. JasonG123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    Which move?
    (A) Martial and Rashford to Salah and DCL
    (B) Jimenez to Ings

    Whichever move I do, I could do the other one next week as well. But if I do (B), it leaves my options open to get Robbo instead of Salah next week.

    TAA Soyuncu Aurier (Lundstram Kelly)
    Salah(c) KDB Martial Maddison (Traore)
    Vardy Rashford Abraham

    0.7TB, 2FT

    Thinking about how to get the third liverpool at gw24

    A) Vardy+KDB => Ings+Mane
    B) Traore+KDB => Hayden+Mane
    C) Vardy+Traore+Maddison => Ings+Hayden+Mane

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      D) Aurier, Rash to Robertson, Ings.

      You don't need double Utd.

    Can't believe I've to spend a transfer on fabianski instead of getting a pool player in. Would fabianski to Allison be the best compromise with one transfer? Got the cash for the same and I wouldn't need to waste any extra transfers.. Already got Taa and Mane. Plan was to swap Robertson in for Rico/Kelly.. With a downgrade upfront. But i could just get Allison in and save my FTs for later instead.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Get Robbo.
      You're unlucky with Fabianski. No need to change plans for that.

        Yup luckily I almost always keep 2 fts.. So I can do fabs to Mcarthy.. And next week swap traore and Kelly to Fleck and Robbo.. Gives me
        Mcarthy

      Are you going to get in Ings?

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Might do and a cheapie to afford Mane, or maybe just Ings and Robbo. Firmino is also tempting

      Well done

    Bench one of:
    A) Lund (ars)
    B) Soy (bur)
    C) Aurier (wat)

    I was initially benching Aurier, but Leicester are going through a bumpy patch and despite Spurs still being poor at the back he was very attacking again yesterday. I know Lund doesn't do well away and Arsenal are improved but it's always a risk to bench him. Of the three I think Soy has the lowest ceiling, so benching him at the mo.

    It's no doubt 2-pointers all-round anyway.

      Fingers crossed. If you were going to rest him the Palace game would be better, but it's not a far-flung possibility he'll be benched today.
