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.

    Arsenal abysmal defending again!

  2. Ginkapo FPL

    Sidibe assist I think 🙂

    1. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Mina

    2. Hazz

      Mina

    Credit to Arteta, i thought Nketiah was good last weekend, albeit without scoring (fair enough it was newcastle...)

    Good to see Arteta rewarding the young guy with a start for his efforts and getting the faith repaid

    Richarlison! What a few minutes from the Brazilian 😆

    1. Marvin de Milo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      He's nuts. I love watching him.

  5. Here Comes The Son ★
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Mina assist to anybody wondering.

  6. TheDragon
    • 1 Year

    Why is it that every single highly owned player in this game has to score

    1. Here Comes The Son ★
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Highly owned players tend to be the best players, thus more likely to score.

    Richy G, he 100% touched it. However it may have been bouncing out after Leno sat on it, and hit it back in himself, so could be a Leno own goal

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

      Nah, just kinda hit Leno and rolled in. Mina assist.

    2. IRBOX ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      That’s not how it works. Shot on target = goal

      1. mynameisq
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        You're not understanding me, it looked like he saved it outwards, then fell back onto it and hit it back in, not 100% sure what happens then as yes usually any shot on target = goal but at what point do you call it an o.g

        On second viewing though it wasn't how I thought it played out anyway so it's a defo goal

  8. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    This is a great game.

  9. Marvin de Milo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Just give Arsenal the assist.

  10. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Wow why a game so far from a neutral point of view

    1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      What*

  11. dark91
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    If not own goal would be Mina assist

  12. IRBOX ⚽
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Plenty more goals in this

    1. FOO FIGHTER

      Agree

  13. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    What an awful game for non owners...

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Indeed

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

      Yep. Sickening not owning anyone in this. My FT this week was DCL > Jimi also but atm that’s not an awful move...

  14. ZoumasBloomers
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Fairly sure Richarlison hasn’t touched that

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

      He absolutely did.

    2. mynameisq
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      100% did

    3. Silecro
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      He did, there is a visible bounce of his foot in slow-motion

    4. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      LOL

    5. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Tight, but in slow mo side on you can see it. Not enough evidence to say otherwise.

  15. Dr. Agabuse
    • 7 Years

    Her we go again

  16. Chenku╰☆╮
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1. United 99 4Ever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      United VAR system says no red card AND he touched it....GOAL!

  17. YoungPretender
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Any of these for a -4?

    A) Aubameyang & Lundstram > Jiminez & Robertson

    B) Aubameyang & De Bruyne > Jiminez & Mane

  18. Differentiator
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Absolutely UNCONVINCED that's a Charlie goal. Didn't see any touch whatsoever

    1. JamieNumber4
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Looked to me like it came off DCL

      1. Meinhoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        I think so too, though I am not watching the game tbf

    2. Don Van Vliet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      He feathered it with his toe.

      1. Don Van Vliet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Possibly even a stud (without having seen it again).

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

        Think I spotted Kane in there

        1. badgerboy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          McCauley's hair also sighted.

    3. DandyDon
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      he touched it

  19. lordkippe
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Just got home to watch the second half. Placed bets on Mustafi, Mina & Sidibe cards. Any hope ?

    @OfficialFPL
    Goal - RICHARLISON
    Assist - MINA

    Arsenal 2-2 Everton (45+4 mins)

    #FPL #ARSEVE

    1. Differentiator
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Could still be credited to Digne

    2. Chenku╰☆╮
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Will change

      1. mynameisq
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        It definitely won't

  21. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Whether rich touched it or not, will the goal still stand? Can’t watch it at the moment

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Yep
      Mina or Richa is the question

  22. Don Van Vliet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Richarlison is such a nasty player. I bet he's an absolute nightmare as a person. Should have had a red for that challenge, just for his intent.
    Disgusting individual.

    1. Marvin de Milo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I think that's quite harsh to be honest.

    2. RealVirg
      1 month, 12 days ago

      If he was in prison, his cellmates would be holding the inside of his pocket

    3. b✪mber
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      non owner?

    4. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      What are you on about.

    5. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I've seen a couple of interviews with him and he seems a pretty chilled out guy.

    6. Syd.
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      The reaction from the fouled player was a bit over the top

    7. Quite Big Dunc
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      He has a weird reputation with people who don’t watch him often. I assume it’s because of his resting bitch face.

      He seems like a pretty sound guy and he’s an excellent footballer.

    Exciting Gameweek from an FPL point of view...even though I don’t own any of the players scoring points.

  24. el polako
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Since I own Richarlison I fully expect this goal to be taken away from him.
    All 50-50's this season are going against me.

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      What else could it be but a Richarlison goal?

    2. DandyDon
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      it won't

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

      I mean, it won't be. It's his goal.

    4. mynameisq
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      You're okay man, it's obviously a richa goal

  25. Jarvish Scott Talent
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Goal! Yerry Mina plays a simple square pass into the feet of Richarlison (Everton) in the box, who composes himself and lashes the ball into the middle of the goal. 2:2.

    Flashscore text commentary 😆

    1. mynameisq
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Haha

    2. Syd.
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Well they got the 2:2 bit right

    4. Amey

      Ha ha

    5. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Still better than Paul Merson.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Richarlison touched the ball so it's a Richarlison goal.

        Guess who ....

    6. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Mills and Boon-eque.

      1. badgerboy

    7. Fred54
      • 5 Years

      Good job they clarified it was Everton's Richarlison.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
