Lacazette benched again as Digne misses out for Everton

The penultimate match of Gameweek 27 kicks off at 16:30 GMT, with Arsenal entertaining Everton at the Emirates.

Mikel Arteta has made only one alteration to his Arsenal side from the one that thrashed Newcastle United 4-0 last weekend, with Sead Kolasinac (£5.2m) replacing Bukayo Saka (£4.5m) at left-back.

That means that there is no place in the hosts’ starting XI for Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m), who again begins this match on the bench.

Eddie Nketiah (£4.3m) gets his second successive league start, with Nicolas Pepe (£9.2m), Mesut Ozil (£7.2m) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) joining him in attack.

Carlo Ancelotti has made five changes from the side that beat Crystal Palace a fortnight ago, with three of the alterations coming in defence: Mason Holgate (£4.5m), Djibril Sidibe (£5.2m) and Leighton Baines (£4.9m) replacing Seamus Coleman (£5.3m), Michael Keane (£5.2m) and Lucas Digne (£5.8m).

Digne isn’t even on the bench, with the French left-back missing out because of a minor injury.

Ancelotti said ahead of kick-off:

He had a little problem during the week, he tried to train yesterday but he was not confident and so I prefer to leave him at home to train, to be ready for the next game.

The injured Theo Walcott (£6.2m) and the benched Bernard (£6.4m) are replaced by Alex Iwobi (£5.6m) and Fabian Delph (£5.3m) in midfield.

Andre Gomes (£5.2m) is involved in Everton’s matchday squad for the first time in three months after recovering from ankle surgery, meanwhile.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.2m) and Richarlison (£8.2m), transferred in by a combined 378,000 FPL managers ahead of Gameweek 27, both start up front.


Arsenal XI: Leno, Bellerin, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac, Ceballos, Xhaka, Pepe, Ozil, Nketiah, Aubemeyang

Everton XI: Pickford, Sidibe, Holgate, Mina, Baines, Schneiderlin, Delph, Iwobi, Sigurdsson, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.

        He was onside. Xhaka by the touchline keeping him on.

    1. Hazz

    Saka is scripted

  7. Hands Guber

    Benched Traore for all his points-played him for all his 1 pointers. Misery owning that guy especially having benched DCL this week and him nearly having a second goal just now. Can’t watch, cowboys!

    Getting too greedy as a DCL and Rich owner - both so close to major hauls

    1. ElBuffalo20
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I have DCL Rich and Auba playing

    Damn, would've been a good week to BB with McCarthy, Taylor and greenwood on bench

    How does the bps calculation system make the difference between a SOT and a missed opportunity (even if it’s a SOT) ?

    1. fusen
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      If you mean what is the difference between a SOT and a 'big chance missed', that is up to Opta whether they thought the missed shot was an easy goal or not.

      Missing a big chance is -3
      SOT is -1

    3. II CAZORLA II
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Traore for sure because of his rotation risk alone.

  13. el polako

    Siggy is shite, so many bad passes from someone who ia wearing #10 is unacceptable.

    1. TakingTheMkhi
      • 4 Years

      Such a shame. Was a quality player but now looks poor

  14. Polar_Bear

    Hendo (GK) out? Best replacement?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      On form? Pope.
      On fixtures? Pope.
      On total score? Pope.

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Agreed, but Burnley were very lucky yesterday.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 12 days ago

          You think Burnley fixtures are good?... Spurs is probably not as daunting as in paper

  15. Ha.
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Lundstram > Hanley (0.1m off anyone decent)
    Grealish > Fernandes

    2FT
