What next for Arsenal assets after unfortunate blanks for Aubameyang and Leno?

Brighton 2-1 Arsenal

  • Goals: Lewis Dunk (£4.7m), Neal Maupay (£5.7m) | Nicolas Pépé (£9.3m)
  • Assists: Aaron Connolly (£4.2m) | Bukayo Saka (£4.7m)
  • Bonus Points: Maupay x3, Dunk x2, Pépé x1

A serious injury to Bernd Leno (£5.0m) at Brighton typified what proved to be a largely disappointing Double Gameweek for Arsenal players.

After registering five points in the midweek 3-0 defeat at Manchester City, the Gunners’ goalkeeper was only able to increase his score for the round by one.

That’s because Leno only lasted 39 minutes before having to come off with what many suspected was a broken leg, although that is not yet confirmed.

He jumped up to claim a high ball in the Arsenal penalty area, only to be barged over somewhat unnecessarily by Brighton forward Neal Maupay (£5.7m).

Trying to remain in the area with the caught ball, Leno stuck out a leg, which buckled underneath him.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said after the game that the injury did not look positive, but that they would know more after a scan.

“I believe that no player has the intention to hurt anybody and I believe in this case it’s exactly the same, it was unfortunate. Bernd’s injury doesn’t look good and we will have to assess him probably tomorrow, but it can happen on a football pitch. It’s a knee injury, I think he had a hyperextension of the knee and we have to assess the damage. We don’t know [the full extent]. He was in a lot of pain but we will have to wait until tomorrow to see how bad the damage is.” – Mikel Arteta

Leno’s likely absence for the rest of the season does open the door for Emiliano Martínez (£4.2m) to start the remaining games for Arsenal, but it seems unlikely that Fantasy managers will flock towards him en masse.

That’s because the Gunners’ defence continues to completely underwhelm, conceding another two on Saturday afternoon. 

With Pablo Mari (£4.8m) and David Luiz (£5.7m) both missing, it was Shkodran Mustafi (£5.1m) and Rob Holding (£4.4m) named at centre-back, the latter making just his second league start of the campaign. Despite initially looking solid, the ever-present Leno’s absence was felt throughout the team, allowing Brighton to grow into the game, especially in the second half.

Lewis Dunk (£4.7m) capitalised on some scrappy defending in the box to get the equaliser before Maupay punished Arsenal on the counter-attack late-on.

The upcoming fixtures for Arsenal certainly don’t scream ‘defensive investment’ either, with Southampton, Wolves and Leicester three of their next four.

However, the £4.2m man Martínez could well be the perfect second-choice goalkeeper for those playing their Wildcards right now, if he can offer regular starts at just £4.2m. In his 50 minutes on the pitch, the budget goalkeeper made three saves, earning an additional point for them.

Outside of their questionable defence, Fantasy managers may be increasingly frustrated with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.1m) who blanked for the second match in a row. For all his Double Gameweek 30+ hype, the forward ended the round with just four points to his name.

While Wednesday night was a largely abject affair from the Gabonese international, Aubameyang’s blank at Brighton was not for lack of trying.

He produced an uncharacteristically busy display at the Amex Stadium and was rather unfortunate not to come away with something from the game.

Aubameyang is usually the sort of player who errs towards the side of languid brilliance, but there was an energy and enthusiasm about him in Sussex, leading to a game littered with shots from Arsenal’s number 14.

He could have arguably had a brace inside the first five minutes with two early chances. Nicolas Pépé (£9.3m) was unleashed on the right-hand side with his pace in the opening minute, looping a cross to Aubameyang, who managed to hook a blocked shot at goal.

Shortly after, the forward was handed a stray pass in a dangerous area by Davy Pröpper (£4.8m). He bore down on goal and, under some pressure, struck his effort just high and wide, but not by much.

In the ninth minute, Aubameyang probably should have had an assist, were it not for some indecision from Alexandre Lacazette (£9.4m). He pressed through the middle and fed his French colleague with a nice through-ball. Lacazette allowed it run across him onto the right foot but took too long to shoot before Adam Webster (£4.5m) was able to slide in and block.

Aubameyang was back at it again in the second half, linking up with Lacazette nicely in the 47th minute. After a neat one-two, he found a great position to shoot but, again, it was Webster who got in the way. Just a few moments after that, he bore down on goal again, his left-footed effort just about stopped by Mathew Ryan (£4.7m).

Just short of the hour, Aubameyang got himself involved in the set pieces in an attempt to find the break-through. Dani Ceballos (£5.2m) rolled a free-kick in his direction, producing a powerful shot from range, blocked by the wall.

After another low effort from the left was parried around the post by Ryan, Aubameyang tried his luck from distance once again, arguably very unlike the penalty-box merchant. His swerving 79th-minute effort nearly caught Ryan off-guard, who had to bat it away and contend with a crowd of players to smother it eventually.

With all of that in mind, the more patient Fantasy managers may consider holding onto Aubameyang, at least for the next two matches, which pit Arsenal against Southampton and Norwich. Neither of those two sides has had a particularly solid year defensively, so it is entirely possible that Aubameyang will get more opportunities to score. That said, it might be worth keeping an eye on any upcoming Arteta press conference about rotation. The forward has now played 90 minutes in each of the first two games since the Premier League restart.

Of the much-discussed Double Gameweek assets, only Pépé and Bukayo Saka (£4.7m) went some way to rewarding their owners at Brighton.

The latter was in especially scintillating mood operating in central attacking midfield, striking the crossbar in the seventh minute and setting up Lacazette for an impressive diving header saved by Ryan later in the first half.

It was in the second that Saka got his just rewards, his laid-off pass what led to Pépé’s impressive curling effort beyond Ryan.

With both of those midfielders, holding them for those upcoming favourable fixtures does also look a smart move, despite Arsenal’s inability to see out the result at Brighton.

Whether or not the Seagulls can be trusted for Fantasy investment does remain to be seen, especially considering their nasty upcoming fixtures, which include Leicester (away), Manchester United (home), Liverpool (home) and Manchester City (home) between now and Gameweek 35+.

However, there were some shoots of promise against Arsenal, not least from Ryan, whose five saves was just one shy of achieving a second additional point in that department. As a result, the Brighton shot-stopper was also only just edged out of the bonus points, which bodes well for the future too.

Fantasy managers should probably keep an eye on Maupay after his late winning goal. The former Brentford man registered more efforts on goal than any other Brighton player and finally delivered on the promise he showed pre-lockdown. In our recap of the best Brighton players ahead of Double Gameweek 30+, we highlighted that, in the six Gameweeks before March’s coronavirus suspension, Maupay had one of the best shots on target totals in the Premier League, implying that he only needed to improve his conversion to offer some value. He did that against Arsenal, so we will have to see if that continues into Gameweek 31+.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (4-3-3): Ryan; Burn, Webster, Dunk, Schelotto (Montoya 71′); Pröpper, Bissouma (Mac Allister 90+4′), Mooy (March 46′); Trossard (D Stephens 87′), Maupay, Groß (Connolly 71′).

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno (Martínez 39′); Kolasinac, Holding, Mustafi, Bellerín; Ceballos (Willock 87′), Guendouzi; Aubameyang, Saka (Tierney 87′), Pépé (Nelson 87′); Lacazette (Nketiah 78′).

      Wilder said: “We’ll give them, Jack and John, as much time as possible as always. It’s a quick turnaround. They are two contact injuries, so not soft muscle injuries. It’s their attitude as to how they train. We were unfortunate in that situation but maybe we’ve been fortunate over the season so we just have to go with it.”

        1. Brendan95
          • 5 Years

          My attack is
          Mane/KDB/Son/Bruno/Cantwell
          Rash/Jimi/DCL

          with 1.1ITB to switch DCL > Tammy in GW32

          not sure it needs improving anywhere?

          1. kennethrhcp
            • 9 Years

            solid team!

            1. Brendan95
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              Thanks. I have switched Pope out for Martinez. Which is a bit of a risk. But he made 3 saves in half an hour last night and will get plenty more opps with that Arsenal defence. Could be a good gamble.

            2. FPL Pillars
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              No TAA/Salah which is risk but yes solid

              1. Brendan95
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 14 days ago

                Agree. Having more than one of Mane/Salah/TAA takes up so much funds though. I'm hoping that Mane is enough and that rotation makes the others less important after they win the league.

  7. el polako

    United offensive triple up is really tempting, everyone have Bruno F but wisely\lucky picking 2 out of Martial\Rashford\Pogba could be gold with their fixtures.

    Not so keen on their defensive assets since their main CB is as agile as my gran.

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Only if they outscore the other premium, if they get benched going to be cursing?

    2. Amey

      Double up enough atm for me.
      Was on Martial, but now thinking about Rashford instead of him

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        This Rashford & Bruno.

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 14 days ago

          To be fair other than that they looked pretty solid at the back, wouldn’t bet against a couple of CS on this good run of fixture

        Why Rashford not Martial?

          Completely dependent upon my team structure bro.
          Currently i am looking at a prospect of selling Vardy next GW for Rashford.

        1. jackx13
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          He's got the fixtures for it and I don't have the cash for Ederson/Alisson. Can get Lloris but with Aurier in there - this will limit my ability to get in a second attacking Spurs option in case they show amazing form for some reason.

      2. TheTinman
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        I'd go Traore over Barnes

        1. jackx13
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Will consider it, thanks!

    • Francescoli

      Worth trying to crowbar Traore into my wildcard team?

      Pope Martin

      Salah KDB Son Fernandes Cantwell
      DCL Jimenez Rashford

      1. kennethrhcp

        would prob mean selling DCL & Cantwell & playing 352

        DCL to Ayew & Cantwell to Traore?

        1. Francescoli
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          I’d have to remove Saiss as well. I was thinking of Son to Traore and Saiss up to Robertson?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Would you play him?

        1. Francescoli
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          With their fixture run and the interplay between he and Jimenez, yes he’d play

      3. ritzyd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        No need with Doc and Jimi - should be plenty of wolves cover

      4. olidooley
        • 7 Years

        Sarr is the man to crowbar in.....he's explosive and nailed

      5. Krispy Kreme
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Nice team! Very similar to my current WC team, only 3 different. I have Mendy, Aurier and Saka vs your Lascelles Taylor and Cantwell. I’ve seen many other WCs similar to ours too. Hopefully the WC template pays off for us all!!

    • olidooley
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      My WC team is coming down to which of these two I want

      A) Sarr (3-5-2)
      B) DCL (3-4-3)

      1. Francescoli
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Slightly favour the DCL route. Can’t look past that game against Norwich

      2. ritzyd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Same here, i'm currently leaning toward Sarr on the basis there is more flexibility for changes around that price/position (mount, barnes, perez, grealish all at similar price). Whereas DCL there is really only him i would be interested in around that price (dont want pukki or jota as have jiminez)

          Yes?

    • TheTinman
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      The template wildcard has well and truly formed. I'm feeling Kane over Son with those fixtures, spurs should be on top of most of those teams which should mean less counter attacking goals (Son & Berg) and more in the box goals (Kane)

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        It feels like going for differential for the sake of it.
        Kane is a shadow of his former self now

        1. Karan14
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Agree with this.

          Would prefer Alli over Kane.

        2. TheTinman
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Actually Kane under Mourinho has been pretty good. 5 goals and 1 assist in 10 games. 8bps. That includes 2 games v ManU, Che and Wolves

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year

            How does Son perform in those games ?
            (Genuinely asking)

            1. TheTinman
              • 4 Years

                Son for me then without a shadow of a doubt.

        • 8 Years

        Would do DCL to Ayew which would also free up some funds

        1. dshv
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Really don’t want to make 3 changes to bring some defender tell me what have to remove to bring taa and is it bring more points than other 3 good players ?

      2. Luka does it again
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Dcl to Ayew imho

    • bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      14.2m to spend on two forwards or a forward and a mid.

      Is Rashford and Ayew (can bench v Pool) my best option ?

    • Karan14
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Feel so unlucky after getting 2 pointers from both Rashford and Sarr after both of them got a big chance to score.

      Sigh! FPL is well and truly back!

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        I have Jota/Auba/Vardy/Son
        All who should have done well. I thought avoiding FH can be good for the team in long term ...

        But here i am ! Hate decision not to FH now. And going for that Auba .....

        Not so cool start then 😀

        1. Karan14
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          FH38 could still be huge mate!

          I'm having a pretty crap gameweek on FH looking at the standard around here. 71 with 8 to go.

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 14 days ago

            You'll end up with great score... GL. 8 players are more than enough bro.
            I am on 73 with Taa,KDB©, Ederson, Lundstram & Grealish to go.
            I hope FH 38 works now. It'll be fun nonetheless 😀

            1. Karan14
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              Cheers really need some luck to go my way!

              City vs Norwich in GW38 and you could get leaked team news. I wish I had another FH for 38.

      Morning,
      WC team.

      Pope - Martin
      TAA - Doherty - Saiss - Lascelles - Ngakia
      KDB - Son - Bruno - Martial - Richarlison
      Rashford - Jimenez - Nketiah

      Will play 3-5-2 most weeks, 1m in the bank.
      Martial could be Pogba?
      Rash could be Vardy?
      Do I need Liverpool attack, Origi might get game time once the title is wrapped up?

      Cheers

      1. dshv
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        I am looking on your team is nice. But like mine i have just mane from pool on wc, what is you explanation to have just a trent from pool not an attacker ?

        1. BananaMan
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          I've never really considered dropping Trent TBH. I suppose he's capable of delivering premium points for 7.1m that I got him at.
          Based all decisions on fixtures hence 3 United & 3 Wolves.

          1. dshv
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Thats right you good about trent but i have to bring him on 7.8 and that is a little bit too much?

            Anyway why don’t bring aurier or maguire/awb. Fixtures are good for that teams ??

      Thoughts on my WC draft? (0.0ib)

      Pope
      Trent Doherty Maguire
      Mané KDB Son Fernandes Sarr
      Jiménez DCL
      Bench: Button,Lascelles,Femeina,Nketiah

      1. Garlana
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Looks decent, I've personally waivered on Maguire

      2. Cahill
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        good but a bit weak up top

      3. Zebrahimović
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        I like it. Unsure on the Maguire pick though. If you had to go with a United def, then Awb would probably be more likely to get bps.

    • Cahill
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      think both of these start the next game?

      Barnes
      Jota

      weren't great and subs were very good when they came on

    • Hktrader88

      Comments on current WC..

      Martinez -3.9m
      TAA - Doherty - Gomez - Lascelles - Taylor

      Mane - Son - Kdb - Fernandes - Saka

      Rashford - Jimenez - (Nketiah)

      If I went Son to Alli then I could go Gomez to Alonso.

      1. Cahill
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        looks good

        martinez to play rest of the season?

        1. Hktrader88
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Not sure, waiting for confirmation that Leno is out for the season, which may come today. I would prefer Pope, but I don't think the likely point difference over 8 games is going to be huge and the 0.7m is useful.

    • gers23
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Auba to Vardy or Rashford? Have no Utd players. Im leaning towards Vardy and getting Bruno in at a later date.

      1. Cahill
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        vardy looked much sharper

    • Zebrahimović
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Who's going to go with double Wolves at the back next week? i.e Doherty+Saiss?

      1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Had them this week. Plan to keep with TAA until the season ends

        1. Zebrahimović
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Same. I think it could be canny.

      2. Lignja
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Probably

      3. Amey
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Not sure about that.
        Doherty enough for me

      4. Magic Zico

        Maybe not but only if on BB

    • Babit1967

      Final wc decision, two of son, Doherty and dcl

      A) Saiss, Son, DCL -343
      B) Doherty, Richarlison, DCL-343
      C) Doherty, Son, Ayew (Ayew becomes first sub and Fernandez (Newcastle) comes in on 4-4-2

      Thoughts ?

      1. jason_ni

        Prob c from those

    • jason_ni

      Worthing saving some cash with Stevie bergwin over son on a wc?

      A) pay the premium for son
      B) stevie b and invest elsewhere

      1. La Roja
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        I had Son and then considered Bergwijn

        I’m now considering to go without spurs asset. They just don’t convince me. Gotta make a decision

        1. jason_ni
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Half thought of this as option c! Just get someone like mount, and save even more cash. Hard to know what to expect from son.

      2. Amey
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        You get what you pay for. Sonny boy for me

    • faux_C

      Completely forgot to do any moves ahead of this week and feared the worst but currently sat on 58 from 6 with 3 Liverpool players still to play, including Salah (c).

      Maybe it will be ok?

      1. jason_ni
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Could have been worse, bro did seem thing and somehow managed to get 72 to this point!

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Top 10K average around 73 and with SHU AVL MCI are still going to play, unfortunately it’s more likely red arrow for you. Hopefully not too great.

      3. Amey
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Think about those who saw it & still doing sh.t 😀

      The two big question on WC

      Am i really need two united attacker (rash and bruno)

      Am i really need a liverpool defender?

      I have to choose players to give me a differential not to be safe .. if liverpool become champions next week the rotations will started a lot ..

      1. jason_ni
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Nothing wrong with double utd.
        TAA will remain for me as well, hell keep getting minutes, and is essential imho.
