Has Arsenal’s defence improved enough for FPL investment?

Recent performances and a favourable schedule could put Arsenal’s defensive assets on the Fantasy Premier League radar.

While even considering these sorts of players might be considered high-treason by many, it is undeniable that the Gunners have made progress since Mikel Arteta took over last month.

With matches against Sheffield United, Burnley and Newcastle between now and Gameweek 26, there could be a window of opportunity for Fantasy managers looking for differential options.

In this article, we are going to provide an update on Arsenal’s defence to see if Gameweek 22 provided enough evidence of improvement ahead of those appealing fixtures.

As this uses data from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area, only those who have signed up for the full 2019/20 season, a monthly pass or a discounted package can access it in full.

What progress did Arteta make in Gameweek 22?

It seems fair to say that Arsenal were a little unfortunate not to come out of their Gameweek 22 trip to Crystal Palace with a clean sheet and all three points.

For the first time in roughly a year, the Gunners came into the match with an unchanged starting XI, which appeared to help them established control over proceedings in the first half.

After dominating possession for large spells, the loss of Lucas Torreira (£4.7m) at interval saw them pegged back by a heavily deflected Jordan Ayew (£5.0m) shot and it’s worth remembering they had to play the final 24 minutes with only ten men.

Despite conceding, Arsenal are still showing improvement against the first 18 matches of the campaign, when Unai Emery and Freddie Ljungberg were at the helm.

During that period they conceded 1.5 goals per game but this has reduced to just 1.0 per game between Gameweeks 19 and 22 – Arteta’s first four matches.

However, the question on Fantasy managers’ lips is whether the Gunners are showing enough of an improvement to warrant investment.

In order to do that, we will have to dig deep than the goals conceded during Arteta’s brief time in charge and look instead at the underlying statistics.

What does the underlying data say?

    Trying to steal a march in my draft league. Once Liverpool have the title wrapped up, is it likely that Foden will get more game time for City? I'm looking at potentially bringing him in for my team.

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I don't see the correlation.

      By Guardiola's own admission it's impossible for City to close the gap, so it begs the question as to why Foden still doesn't start.

      1. FortunesAlwaysHiding

        Well quite. Sunday Supplement gave some suggestions to this. The feeling was perhaps he is still in awe of the players he is surrounded with rather than seeing himself as an equal. I'm not sure how that would effect his performances on the pitch, as he always seems to perform to a good standard.

        1. Berbs
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          Or maybe Pep just oversold his ability and he isn't ready

      2. Syd.
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Who does he drop for Foden?

        You also need to remember he is only 19 and has played quite a few games this season.

        1. HamezMace
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          Begins phasing out David Silva.
          Has it been confirmed this is his last season with City?

        2. Berbs
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          David Silva, he's off anyway. I think the questions and doubts come because Pep himself has bigged Foden up as the best player he's ever managed. You have to control your own hype

          1. La Roja
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            8 months, 19 days ago

            I’d like to think that comment he made about Foden was lost in translation.

            1. Berbs
              • 10 Years
              8 months, 19 days ago

              Perhaps so. Bit strange to say that if he did. There's better young players at City let alone Bayern and Barcelona.

          2. Syd.
            • 11 Years
            8 months, 19 days ago

            Pep does talk a lot of shite at times

            Foden will get plenty of games in the future he still has his whole career ahead of him.

            1. Berbs
              • 10 Years
              8 months, 19 days ago

              Beginning to think it might not be at City. You guys are linked with CM's/AM's to replace D Silva

              1. Syd.
                • 11 Years
                8 months, 19 days ago

                As long it isn't any of that garbage Utd have been linked with 😉

    2. HamezMace
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I think once the league is done we’ll see big changes for both City and Liverpool, especially if they’re still in the CL, and FA cup.

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I think we’ll see a gradual “tightening up” by Liverpool as they draw closer & closer to the league

      Less goals scored, less goals conceded, and more rotation of the attackers to give the likes of Origi, Shaq, Minamino more game time

      1. Syd.
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Liverpool will be wanting to break records so it is quite possible there will be no easing up.

        1. Berbs
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          If they don't lose a game I think this will be the case. To do centurions + invincibles could be a possibility, but I think the latter largely depends on a few away games

  2. JoeSoap

    8 months, 19 days ago

    Which transfer/s would you prefer this week? Anything better, bearing in mind I would like double Pool defence?

    A. Jimmy>Ings
    B. Aurier/Soyu>Gomez
    C. Maddy/Martial>Sarr/Grealish/Doucore/Other
    D. Aurier/Soyu>TAA (would also need to do C for this move)

    Have 2FTs & 1.2 in bank. Happy to take a hit over next two weeks, if need be.

    McCarthy
    Aurier, Soyu, Lundy
    Salah, Martial, KDB, Maddy
    Vardy, Rashford, Jimmy
    Gazza, Rico, Dendo, Kelly

    1. G Banger
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Aurier out... he has been pretty dire

    2. Sid07
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      B

    3. JoeSoap
      • 7 Years

      Thanks. Yeah, Aurier definitely needs to go.

  3. G Banger

    Sorry semi repost...

    Looking to move in Stephens / Holgate... who priority to go?... currently on Rico

    a) Rico
    b) Kelly

    1. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Rico

      Has probably lost his starting place

      1. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        I wouldn’t be so sure. They were even worse when he was benched.

        1. Syd.
          • 11 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          That said CP are still more likely to keep a clean sheet where as Bournemouth are letting in goals for fun

          1. La Roja
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            8 months, 19 days ago

            Yes sir; I do agree on that

    2. JoeSoap
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Rico. CP decent fixtures and don't tend to concede a lot.

    3. G Banger
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Cheers all, he's gone!

    Ryan button
    Taa soy Rico Kelly Lund
    Mane salah kdb martial grealish
    Vardy muapay greenwood

    2ft 0.0 Itb

    1) downgrade martial upgrade greenwood to ings
    2) fix Rico and Kelly
    3) any other suggestions

    1. Karhumies
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      2, unless you want to get Ings or Deeney in by downgrading either Martial or Grealish to someone like Fleck.

    2. JoeSoap
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      My preference would be to get Ings. Have Rico & Kelly as well and would like to move them on but prefer to get Ings first.

  5. HamezMace

    8 months, 19 days ago

    After a bad week and big red arrow I’m tempted by a -8, I want you to tell me I’m crazy, or genius please,

    Current team,
    Fabianski, McGovern
    Trent, Soyuncu, Lundstram, Kelly, Kiko
    Salah, Mane, KdB, grealish, Zaha
    Jiminez, Vardy, (Greenwood)

    Fabianski, Zaha, Greenwood to McCarthy, Dendoncker, and Ings. Switching to 3-4-3.

    1. Sid07
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      No

      1. HamezMace
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        No I’m crazy, or no I’m a genius?

    2. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I'd say Ings isn't worth -8 but he's scoring every week so can't argue against it really.

      That being said Fabs Zaha Jimenez to Ryan 6.5-7m mid + Ings might be better.

      1. HamezMace
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Well the Fabianski injury has forced a transfer.
        Ings seems close to that horrible essential word.

    3. nevins84
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      nah 8 is too much...

      1. HamezMace
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        See I don’t like hits either, only taken one all season.
        But I’m thinking I have to transfer my keeper due to injury, and surely Ings will outscore Zaha this week, who’s away to City.

    4. PAs lag

      1. HamezMace

        Thanks mate, quite keen to move to a front three though

    5. Soto Ayam
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Fab, zaha, Jimi - McCarthy, rich, ings 352? Greenwood seems a better fodder option than dend

    6. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      as you have non playing goalie that transfer is needed and you will get more points than if you don´t have one, Zaha is a must out imo. Then it is really not necessary to take another hit. Kelly and Kiko, first one loses his place when Ward is back and that should be close, and Kiko still injured. Leicester without Ndidi is equal to goals conceded, he´s that important. Jimenez goes into a horrible run, so if i had that team and was thinking of making -8, i´d rather take Zaha and Jimenez to Ings and Maddison/Martial/Moura etc, then you can if my math is correct have enough to make Kelly to Webster next week, or ha ha, Ward if he´s back. -8 for you is really not -8, as goalie is certain to get you more points, Zaha away to City is almost certain 2 pointer, so say Dilva or Madisson, Richarlison? could get you that 8 points back and i think Ings will do better than Jimenez as i think Southampton will keep Wolves at bay (they do play at the south coast you know).

    Got Lundstran for 4m
    TAA as a season keeper
    Rico 4m playing bench warmer
    Gomez to capitalise on LFC clean sheets

    Only player I could consider selling at the moment is Chillwell but then I will be looking at Digne (set pieces) or Soyuncu to save money.

    Why the hell i would need Arsenal defender ?

  7. La Roja
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Struggling with decision this week. Need one more pool player next GW:

    Guaita
    Lundstram TAA Söyüncü
    Maddison KDB Salah Traore Martial
    Rashford Vardy

    McGovern* Ayew Kelly Rico

    0.1m itb and 1 FT

    A) Rashford ➡ Ings (Soy ➡ Robbo next GW)
    B) Martial Ayew ➡ Dendoncker Ings -4
    C) Maddison Ayew ➡ Mahrez Greenwood -4
    D) Vardy Rashford ➡ Aguero Ings -4

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I'd say A but Rashford is scoring too many points to let go. Maybe save and buy yourself time.

      1. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Ings is winding me up.

        You just know he’ll get injured minute I buy the sod

        1. HamezMace

          I hear that

        2. Berbs
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          That's why I'm not buying him. Think I'll headbutt him so he never scores again

          1. HamezMace
            • 6 Years

      Save FT. Next week, Traore to Fleck and Rico to Gomez?

    3. NotReadyForPrimeTime
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Answered an earlier post a bit late: in case you missed it: can you work it so that you save FT this week, then next downgrade Maddison (or Martial) to allow one of your defenders (Rico if possible) to upgrade to Robertson? And no, that doesn't help you with Ings, sorry. Don't ruin him for the rest of us 🙂

      1. La Roja

    Assuming I own TAA and Mane already, which extra combo do you prefer for GW24 and 25?

    A) Doucoure and Robbo

    B) Martial and Firmino

    C) Salah and (will he start?) Kelly

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years

      Why wouldn't Salah start?

      1. FPL Kaka

        Kelly I meant

          Oh sorry mate, get Holgate instead

    2. Dynamic Duos

      C

    3. Karhumies
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      A or B. B if your current forward is bad, A if it's good.

      1. FPL Kaka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        My forwards are Rashford, Ings and Vardy

        1. Karhumies
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          Martial + Rashford you need to choose if you want one of them or both. Swapping one of them for the other one is kind of a silly move.

    4. Kuzser
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      B based on Firmino’s away stats and Martial’s fixtures

  9. Dynamic Duos
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Looking forward to having this power 5

    Salah, Mane, Son, Vardy, Rashford

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      To call it power 5 you should replace Son with KDB.

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Not with his fixtures after Sheffield, but yeah 29/30 he will be back

    2. Hy liverpool

      KDB?

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years

        Got him for Palace and then Mane comes in.

      vs Liverpool next, and people can't afford him if going for Salah + Mane combo for GW24.

    1. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I would go with Cantwell

    2. Karhumies
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Cantwell

      1. Snikii
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        cheers both, I am leaning the same.

    3. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Cantwell this week but Moura v Norwich looks good

      1. Snikii
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        He will be going by that week to fund a Liverpool asset

    4. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Cantwell

  19. jorgenoj
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Only way to get Mane + Salah is by selling KdB. Worth loosing 0.3 value om KdB? Will og course get him back later

    1. Karhumies
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      No

    1. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      King Kun will make us fly up the rank.

  21. JT11fc
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Would you just go with Mane Trent Gomez if you could have this team?

    Mcarthy Button
    Trent Gomez Sidibie Lundy Williams
    Mane KDB Moura Rich Grealish
    Vardy Ings Rashford

    I fancy having Moura v Nor
    and Rash v Burnley

    1. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah looks good if you want Lucas for that game!

      1. JT11fc
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Cheers. Too many sacrifices for one extra game im thinking

  22. Big Hands Barry
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Which do you prefer
    A) Rashford/Martial to Ings/Son
    B) Greenwood/Martial to Ings/Moutinho
    C) Keep the utd lads

    1. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Prefer B so you can keep on United, would get Doucoure instead of Mou if possible

      1. Big Hands Barry
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks. Unfortunately not possible for doucoure!

    2. JoeSoap
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Like A though would be inclined to keep one of the Utd players.

      1. Big Hands Barry
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah would be a risk with Burnley soon

    Do you reckon there is no chance McCarthy stays as 4.3m by Friday?

          Thanks for the update/correction. Your info better than mine.

  24. Fit_to_drop
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I have 2 FTs on this squad.

      Guaita/Hendo
      Kelly, (Soy), Gomez, (Lund), Stephens
      Madds, Salah, Mane, KDB, (Cantwell)
      Vards, Rash, (Greenwood)

      What changes would you make....Thanks.

      1. Big Hands Barry
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        That's a great team. Guaita to someone and save. Or downgrade maddison to fund ings

      2. Rash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        I'd want trent

    • NUFCAndrew
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Play Cantwell (BOU) or DCL (whu)

      1. Big Hands Barry
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Tough one. Probably Cantwell for the better fixture

      2. Alexis Nonsense
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        West Ham has no Fab though... I guess DCL is kind of "cover" for all those Richarlison owners

        But that didn't work well for me last week....

    • Cant fit my Willian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Worth taking a -8 over 2 weeks to move to this team for GW 24:

      McCarthy (Button)
      TAA-Soy-Lund (Rico, Kelly)
      Salah-Mane-KDB-Martial-Sarr
      Vardy-Ings (Greenwood)

      Leaves me light on bench but I really like the look of this team.

      1. Alexis Nonsense
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Depends on which moves you are making, but look like a strong side for gw24 and onwards yes

        1. Cant fit my Willian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          8 months, 19 days ago

          Cheers, moves would be Ramsdale to McCarthy, Abraham to Greenwood this week. Traore to Sarr and Maddison to Mane next week.

    • HMC

      Swap Guaita for Foster for free?
      Who would you rather own long term

      1. HamezMace
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        The thing with Watford is that they have multiple cheap defenders who are better options than foster

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          Ta. Palace do seem to have better fixtures than Watford after city

    • Dain Bramage

      Brilliant article and spot on I’d say!
      After a terrible Dec I decided to wildcard and put Kolasinac in my team swapping for Leno, after having Leno from week 1. I would not want 2 at the back though especially since I’ve 2 from Liverpool for their double. Fabianski in Leno place only to get his injury but luckily I got McCarthy at same time as I wanted a playing keeper just in case I played BB So I don’t have to waste a transfer. No value in attack maybe Ozil if he becomes 80% player he used to be but I agree there is plenty of value in the back line, Kolasinac seems fun to have I like his attacking side so hopefully if they can keep clean sheets he may get a goal or assist. Luiz worries me he could smash in a super free kick but may be rash score a own goal or red card. Out of the 2 it had to be Kolabear for me
