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.

    Auba to Vardy? And then transfer him back in GW 29?

    1. Deeney-is-a-god
      • 3 Years

      Nah, waste of transfers. Vardy is so out of form and he is a streaky player, so would wait with transfering vardy in unitl he starts scoring again

      McNeil C was always the right call.

        Transfers are limited.. not that many free ones left.
        id only ship auba out if I didnt want him back.. with those fixtures I def do.

  13. Don Kloppeone

    Auba. Always always does this. Dangles the carrot and makes you think we need him in. Then he’ll go on an epic barren spell!

    1. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Lets break him by getting him in for gw29 for his good run of Fixtures

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        With a front line of Vardy, Ings, Jimi I cant see how!

    2. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Been there. Experienced the fraudulence

      Are you taking one for the community ?

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        No chance mate. Not falling for it 😉 (not falling for getting loads of points that is)

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year

          Ha ha
          We've missed the boat

            Yep. V unlikely to haul again like this 2 in a row!

            Somehow clinging onto a green arrow for now. Unlikely to stick...

  14. Deeney-is-a-god
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Think auba has convinced me to keep him on the bench for one week instead of selling...

    1. Lecky Legs FC
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I would West Ham next at home no brainer

  15. FPLGraham

    Hello Siri I’d like all my patience to go unrewarded while every highly owned player I don’t own scores a truckload of points, and all the differentials I pick during the season to somehow go on a massive dry spell before hauling just after I sell them.

    “Thanks Graham, you’ve ordered the 19/20 FPL season”

    Just bloody fantastic.

    1. FPLGraham
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Maybe I should Bench Boost in a single gameweek and try to get spawny eh.

    Lovely parting gift from Auba

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

      Mate you gotta keep him for those fixtures. Just bench him next GW!

      1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        He has two games in 4 weeks mate....

        I can’t risk not having vardy, I reckon he’ll turn it back on.

        For me it’s a parting gift too, but I understand the want to keep him.

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

          Fair enough.

          1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            You keeping him and going without vardy?

    2. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      This!

    Traore to Fernandez ft?

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

    He’s going to win the golden boot playing for Arsenal who were crap for half the season, from the left wing. Unreal player.

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

      We are lucky to have him

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

      Again! So clinical.

      His age means he’ll have to move on for CL soon though.

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

        I think he will sign a new deal, captain, he seems really happy at Arsenal. If we win Europa somehow he will stay.

  19. Dirty Harry
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Let's go Auba!

  20. Daniel S.
    • 10 Years

    Auba brace, Chucky in heaven and juhuuuuu

    1. Chucky

      😀 juhuuu

  21. Nunoooooooooo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Thoughts on this team please guys?

    Pope - McCarthy
    TAA - Mendy - Doherty - Stephens - Lascelles
    Salah - Mane - KDB - Fernandes - Perez
    Jota - Ings - DCL

  22. jonnybhoy
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Keep them goals coming DCL + Auba

  23. Daniel S.
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Earlier WC proving success for now.

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

      Really? Most I know who Wildcarded in the last few GWs have had some stinkers.

      1. Daniel S.
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Not me. One week earlier would have been even better since pukd have got Shef CS. Time will tell but Auba Auba Jimmy Doherty double Liv defense all weren't part of my squad before. I made 13 changes . Kept only Salah and TAA.

        ASM and Adama to deliver next and Barnes

        1. Daniel S.
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          The logic was why bet all on 1 double GW when you can try several times with a great WC

  24. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years

    Auba instead of Aguero on WC 3 gws ago paying off.

    1. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Snap!

        • 10 Years

        Good. I almost felt into the trap

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

    Glad I got rid of Sidibe last week

    He isn't very proficient at playing football

  26. RealVirg
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Aubamyang really is great:

    A) His name sounds like an Aubergine
    B) Both his heads are shaped like Aubergines

    Get me a third one pls!

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      He’s got more chance of winning an Aubergine contest than anything with arsenal?

  27. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Seems like getting Auba in after the blank is the obvious choice

  28. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Vardy to Auba difficult now

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Meant Auba to Vardy

  29. Bobby Digital
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Aubaaaa!!!

    1. RealVirg
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Hattie?

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        No 😛

  30. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Is Auba underrated on here?

    1. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Yes, i think cos he plays out wide
