Scout Notes

What next for Aubameyang after double-digit haul hots up Golden Boot race?

Arsenal 4-0 Norwich

  • Goals: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang x2 (£11.0m), Granit Xhaka (£5.1m), Cédric Soares (£4.8m)
  • Assists: Aubameyang
  • Bonus Points: Aubameyang x3, Xhaka x2, Hector Bellerín x1 (£5.4m)

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) finally rewarded his patient owners with two goals, an assist and a double-digit haul in Gameweek 32+.

Faith in the Arsenal forward had ebbed away since the Premier League restart, especially after blanks against Brighton and Southampton.

However, if Aubameyang and his 24% ownership were rather unlucky in Gameweeks 30+ and 31+, they were more than repaid by the Fantasy fates in Arsenal’s 4-0 win over Norwich.

For the opening half an hour, the Gabon international did not look any more dangerous than usual, afforded three opportunities that were far from clear cut.

In the ninth minute, Aubameyang cut inside on his right foot from his usual wide-left station, bending a shot straight at Tim Krul (£4.6m). Shortly after, Reiss Nelson (£5.3m), who found plenty of space against Jamal Lewis (£4.4m) in the first half, lofted a clipped cross to the back-post, but Aubameyang could only nod a tame effort at Norwich’s goalkeeper. It was the same story a few moments later when Dani Ceballos (£5.2m) got around the back of Lewis’ flank, his cross too high for Aubameyang to bring under control.

These were the sorts of chances, mixed in with some bad luck, that had led to those recent blanks, but arguably, the forward’s luck was due based on what happened next.

The first stroke of good fortune occurred in the 31st minute when his high-press on Krul, and the goalkeeper’s over-confidence on the ball, led to him winning possession in the Norwich penalty area. Pulled a little wide by the tackle, Aubameyang had no problems sliding the ball into an unguarded net.

His involvement in Arsenal’s second goal was much more about Aubameyang’s own skill. David Luiz (£5.7m) played an excellent crossfield ball from the back to Kieran Tierney (£5.3m), who slid Aubameyang into an advanced position on the left-hand side. His quick-thinking fed a rapidly approaching Granit Xhaka (£5.1m), who pulled his shot back across goal and underneath Krul.

Lady Luck (who we assume captained Aubameyang for Gameweek 32+) then smiled again in the 67th minute when Josip Drmic (£5.3m) played a blind ball back to his defence from a wide-position, sliding Aubameyang instantly into a one-on-one with Krul. With the confidence of an earlier under his belt, Arsenal’s number 14 made no mistake from close-range.

While we cannot rule out the flukey nature of Aubameyang’s two goals against Norwich, his latest outing might just ask some questions of his remaining owners.

Many of those who held onto him for Gameweek 32+ (this author included) did so after watching the unfortunate nature of recent blanks, seeing enough efforts on goal to predict a haul at some point. Therefore, you could argue that Aubameyang’s luck evened out over the three Gameweeks we’ve had so far.

And the position that period has left the striker in is certainly an interesting one. Not only has he become Arsenal’s fastest ever player to reach 50 Premier Leagues (77 games), he is now joint-top of the race for a second Golden Boot in a row. Sharing that prize with Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) and Sadio Mané (£12.5m) last season is almost certainly motivation enough for Aubameyang to end the season on a high, especially with his contract situation still up in the air.

“I’m really happy that Bukayo signed (the contract). We’ll see. We’ll talk with the club and see what happens. I’m really focused on the games. Since Mikel is in we’re doing well. We’re working well. We have signs we’re improving.” – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

“A credit to him. He’s always trying to be the best and help the team. I am really happy for him not just for the goals but his attitude overall.” – Mikel Arteta

However, the remaining fixtures for Arsenal are not pretty at all. Up next is a Wolves side with seven clean sheets from their last eight, then it’s Leicester and Spurs, before Liverpool come to the Emirates Stadium in Gameweek 36+.

That same caveat of fixtures also applies to other Arsenal assets recently considered by Fantasy managers.

While Wednesday evening was one of much-needed rejoicing for Aubameyang owners, those invested in Nicolas Pépé (£9.2m), Bukayo Saka (£4.7m) and Eddie Nketiah (£4.4m) were left ruing what could have been. Even though the Gunners ran out as 4-0 winners over Norwich, that trio were all left on the bench. Saka stayed there all evening while Pépé and Nketiah emerged for one-pointers.

Saka seems the most likely to hold his place in Fantasy teams considering his price and position, fully capable of operating as a useful fifth-midfielder. Furthermore, this was the first time since the Premier League’s restart that Saka had been absent from the starting line-up, so he was more than owed his rest.

However, despite Joe Willock‘s (£4.7m) late shot nearly earning him an assist, Nketiah remains a rotation threat for those looking at going ultra-cheap in the forward line. This was the second time in four matches that the former Leeds loanee was superseded in the centre-forward role by Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m). Considering that Mason Greenwood (£4.3m) has started each of the last two, earning praise from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the process, the Manchester United man, who has nicer fixtures too, arguably looks a better option for the run-in than Nketiah.

Meanwhile, Emiliano Martínez (£4.3m) proved his worth as a budget goalkeeper once again. He has now contributed to two clean sheets in a row for Arsenal, although he stopped short of amazing his 2.0% ownership with his five-point haul. Norwich’s rather subdued nature led to just two saves for the goalkeeper, one short of an additional point and he picked up a yellow card just after the hour-mark.

Also, the chances of Martínez earning starts from his Fantasy owners over the next four matches seems low, considering those aforementioned tough fixtures against Wolves, Leicester, Spurs and Liverpool. A Gameweek 37+ trip to Aston Villa looks like the next chance for Martínez to ask his owners a difficult question from the bench.

Despite drawing a fourth successive blank, Norwich did offer some threat at Arsenal, although, as usual, fell short of actually finding the net.

Ben Godfrey (£4.4m) stepped out of defence and into midfield in the 19th minute, firing a fierce shot from distance against Martínez’s post.

Kenny McLean‘s (£4.8m) powerful free-kick forced a diving save from the Arsenal goalkeeper just short of half-time before Daniel Farke made some changes at the break.

Teemu Pukki (£6.5m) and Emi Buendía (£6.0m) were both withdrawn allowing for a very central front-three of Drmic, Todd Cantwell (£4.6m) and Adam Idah (£4.4). This new set-up could be something that Farke tries in the remaining games of 2019/20 as it nearly led to a breakthrough in the 46th minute, Idah stinging Martínez’s palms with a fierce shot from the edge of the box. During this period, Norwich arguably saw more joy going forward than Arsenal, but all their confidence was dispelled when Drmic handed the game to Aubameyang in the 67th minute.

Arsenal XI (3-4-3): Martínez; Kolasinac, D Luiz, Mustafi (Holding 46′); Tierney, Ceballos, Xhaka, Bellerín (Cédric 77′); Aubameyang (Pépé 82′), Lacazette (Nketiah 76′), Nelson (Willock 58′).

Norwich City XI (4-1-4-1): Krul; Lewis, Tettey, Godfrey, Aarons; Trybull (Idah 46′); Cantwell (Stiepermann 75′), McLean, Rupp (Vrančić 75′), Buendía (O Hernández 46′); Pukki (Drmic 46′).

        Good shout and leaves me with 2.2 mil

        Not sure tho both kinda risky

    2. maglia rosa

      Aurier or Gomez maybe?
      Nothing else apart from Nketiah really.

    One interesting thing I realised about this season was how much budget was tied up in essential players. TAA, Salah or Mane, KDB - 1/3 of the £100m locked away pretty much from GW1 (I never sold TAA/Salah and bought KDB gw4). This reduced the number of decisions needed and arguably made it harder to rank up, similar to Suarez's seasons.

    Of course, you could play without one of the three, or be more proactive swapping. I've seen isolated no-Pool or no-KDB teams do reasonably well, but it's difficult and unnecessary because:
    A) they never got injured or suspended for more than a week or so
    B) very little competition in the 10m+ bracket
    The lack of top strikers compounds the issue, because there was no 13m RVP or 12m Drogba to compete for funds. Auba and Kun in patches, sure, and maybe I'm being harsh on Kane/Rashford because I don't really pick them. I will say Chelsea didn't even have a player over 8.5m, which is incredible.

    1. Berbs

      Next season will be worse

      TAA Salah KDB Bruno ownership will be through the roof

      I agree I think it has been an odd year.
      Liverpool running away with it killing real life interest for neutrals. Plus from an fpl point of view Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal appear in a state of flux. Spurs yet to get into a new mindset under Jose.

    3. Greek Freak
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      The forward situation is weird - and compounded by the fact that Auba has played most of the season wide left, and Kane most of the season as a defensive midfielder (I'm exaggerating but you see my point). On top of that Aguero had his usual injury and rotation issues, and the main goalscoring forward at Liverpool is still classified as a midfielder. (I'd like to see Auba as a mid next season if Salah is a mid!)

    4. ZimZalabim
      • 4 Years

      Ive had a nightmare swapping them in and out missed two massive hauls Kdb vs arsenal and trent was leicester because I thought I was being clever lol.

      Maybe they should do some more reclassifications for next season

  3. Athletic Nasherbo
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Grealish + Richarlison > Pulisic + Willian (-4)?

    1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      looks good at least one/other or both should do well in the next few fixtures

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Cheers, agreed. Chelsea look like scoring for fun especially in their next 4

      DCL is complete rubbish. Needs to go.

      1. Moose™
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Any options? If getting Greenwood (seems nailed now), means need to sacrifice Rashy..

        1. maglia rosa
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Not a fan of swooping out good options right before plum ties. I’ve bit the bullet tonight and give with a Rashfit’s/Greenwood front two.

    3. maglia rosa
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      If Kane hauls would him and Greenwood fit?

      1. maglia rosa

    • 3 Years

    Do United really have only 48 hours between their GW35 and 36 games? There's going to be so much rotation in 36 then.

    1. Greek Freak
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Looks like the TV schedule for 36 onwards hasn't been finalised - not all the games will be Wednesday at 8pm for example.

  8. Dynamic Duos
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    How would this be? -8

    Henderson McCarthy
    TAA Aurier Boly Fernandez Lascelles
    Salah Son Bruno Mahrez Martial
    Jiminez Ings Greenwood

    0.8 itb

    1. Athletic Nasherbo
      • 3 Years

      What’s the -8?

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Aubameyang, Barnes and Fleck to Greenwood, Mahrez and Martial

        1. Athletic Nasherbo
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Benching Ings I’m assuming?

          1. Dynamic Duos
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Atm yeah, but maybe Greenwood, the hits ate for the midfield upgrades

            1. Athletic Nasherbo
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              That’s fair. I’d play Greenwood.

              1. Dynamic Duos
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 12 days ago

    Can I get away with saving FT & using BB?

    Henderson Pope
    TAA Doherty Alonso Saiss Taylor
    Salah KDB Son Bruno Barnes
    Jimenez DCL Greenwood

    Plan to -4/-8 next week and overhaul the squad...

    willian or pulisic?

    1. Athletic Nasherbo

      1 month, 12 days ago

      Both 😉

  11. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Looks like the -12 I took this week might actually do OK.
    Had to be done though with Aguero and Leno injuries and thought David Luiz would stay dropped.

    IN ►► OUT
    Wan-Bissaka ►Laporte up at least 8
    Pope ► Leno - up 9 leno injured
    Doherty ► David Luiz - level
    Kane ► Agüero - aguero injured so up at least 2

    1. maglia rosa
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Kane going bananas would be soooo sweet.

      1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Yeah not many have him, plus he has had his much needed rest over the break. Got 180 mins under his belt with some nice fixtures coming up. Seems an easy choice.

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

    Vardy + Guendouzi to?

    A) Martial + Connolly
    B) Greenwood + Mahrez

    Currently leaning towards A, as seems like a waste if Greenwood is put on the bench, and also planning to buy Mahrez in 2 weeks later to replace Traore

    1. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Depends how many utd you have already,a triple up utd nearly seems essential for Bou. I will be starting Greenwood I am not going to let a price tag put me off playing him.
      But A considered with Mahrez later sounds good too.

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

      Thanks for the advice. Currently have Rash and Bruno, and just did A. Just didn't want to waste a Utd slot on Greenwood if I am not starting him

  13. jia you jia you

    80 with 4 to play to follow up on my 99pts last week. 1.1m to 477k in two GWs... too little too late but it's nice to be on the rise!

          500K to 133k since the restart. Lovin it too - to think I nearly didn’t bother for the restart.
          Lucky Auba C helped

                I am waiting for tomorrow’s games but thinking
                Auba and Aurier

    Thinking of Grealish + Rich > Pulisic + Willian (-4)...

    Henderson
    TAA Doherty Egan
    KdB Fernandes Willian Pulisic Cantwell
    Aubameyang Rashford

    Nyland DCL Lundstram Aarons

    Captain Rashford or Fernandes
    Thoughts?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Looks good to me actually, want Martial but Rashford and Bruno is enough probably, (c) Rashford

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Martial is a player I doubt I will own. I just don’t rate him, it’s personal god knows why. This is a conspicuous case...

        Yeah leaning towards Rashy(C) too. Cheers

        Been telling myself form over fixtures all season and it’s done well when I’ve listened. Arsenal on some decent form and Aubameyang has found some form, granted against a weak team that gave him the goals.

  15. davies
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    A) Saiss Pulisic

    B) Alonso Foden

    1. Athletic Nasherbo
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      A by quite a distance

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Easily A

    3. jia you jia you
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      B probably has more potential but risky, A safer.

      1. Albrightondknight
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Azpi would make it less risky I am still undecided which of them I get this week.

    4. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I don’t know where A by a distance and easily is coming from.
      I will probably go B and be happy with it, but Foden probably is benched this week for me depending on who plays tomorrow.
      Foden at that price is a gift great fixtures in a goal machine team and surely Pep doesn’t get a better time than now til end of the season to break him into the team.

      1. jia you jia you
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        I'd also go B. just need a decent bench

      2. Athletic Nasherbo
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Alonso granted has a big haul but Chelsea looking leaky and could easily be dropped. Looked poor since restart.

        Foden’s minutes are unknown.

        Saïss primed for 90, bps magnet and in a team that loves to defend.

        Pulisic hitting form and 4 favourable fixtures.

        Unsure how someone can be attracted to B over A

          Fair enough but it’s closer that you think.

          1. Athletic Nasherbo
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            I genuinely don’t think it is. If Foden was assured starts yeah ok you have an argument

            1. Albrightondknight
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Yes we know Pep could start anyone but now is Foden time - yeah a hunch but it makes sense.
              Foden and Greenwood scream value and fixtures I won’t be going without either.

              1. Athletic Nasherbo
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 12 days ago

                Careful. Nketiah looked like that too.

                Foden + Greenwood should reward based on value but don’t rely on these guys in that 11

                1. Albrightondknight
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 12 days ago

                  He is still better than Laca that’s for sure.
                  I get your point. One of those 2 will be benched sometimes and when they are Holgate and Aurier /Lascelles will be with them. A decent bench is required for this strategy. I don’t mind if they get zero minutes - 30 would be worse and that’s the real risk.

        Where does Foden play anyway? (when he plays that is)

        Part of the attacking three or deeper?

        1. Athletic Nasherbo
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Has been replacing Mahrez recently. Played in Sterling’s position against Burnley and can play in the midfield 3

          1. Greek Freak
            • 4 Years

            Thanks, intriguing.

      I think I'm going to dump DCL for Foden over the next few. Foden is a risk but I feel he has a much higher ceiling than the Everton man over the next few fixtures. I think most in the higher ranks will play it safe and hold DCL.

    Is this the best gw to play the FH chip considering the fixtures for pool, Chelsea and city?

    1. Athletic Nasherbo
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      36 looks better albeit just before FA Cup semis

    2. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I think so

  17. Fuddled FC

    Is Jesus an overlooked option?

    Vardy > Jesus?

    Yay / nay

    1. Athletic Nasherbo
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I don’t mind Jesus. Just prefer Mahrez for over 1m cheaper.

    2. FOO FIGHTER

              ASM over Ings.
              Captain Salah?

        2. Dynamic Duos

          Greenwood would 100% going up?

          On a WC (with BB to play in GW37), which option and why?

          A) Azpi, Son, Nketiah (bench)
          OR
          B) Taylor (bench), Mahrez, Ings

          With Klopp saying in two post-match press conferences that there will be rotation in the squad now they have won the title, what are people doing with Salah and why? I am debating selling because he is too expensive to only get a 1 point cameo from but the upcoming Villa match is really, really tempting.......

          1. Greek Freak
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            What I'm doing is I'm buying him probably...!

            1. The Big Fella
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Specifically for Villa or as a "long-term" investment? What if he doesn't start? I would think Liverpool assets are don't buy at the moment to be honest. Whether they are don't sell too I am not sure (hence my question)

              1. Greek Freak
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 12 days ago

                I still have TC to play and I don't see a better fixture. I'll think about it again if both Salah and Mane play 90 vs. City.

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

          DCL to Giroud? Surely starts v Watford?

          Armband material for a wild punt!!!

          1. Athletic Nasherbo
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Like it. Tammy was poor. If Giroud does well he will start the next

          2. ZimZalabim
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            was considering the same

            tammy had back to back starts and hasnt looked good so Giroud shd start but still got to see how son plays incase pulisic or willian come in ahead of him

            Def not armband material though with the number of players with better fixtures

        8. jia you jia you

          Currently rocking a 5 man Manchester midfield... might hold it for the run in bar injuries etc!

            no liverpool for villa at home

            expecting big benchings ?

            1. jia you jia you

              possibly, can't have em all regardless eh... I still own Trent + Robbo

        9. ZimZalabim
          • 4 Years

          Any thoughts on this team ?

          Martinez (3.9)
          Trent, Doherty, Awb (kiko, 3.9)
          Mane, Kdb, Son, Martial, Bruno
          Jiminez, Dcl (Nketiah)

          1. jia you jia you
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            nice team, if you had Ings over DCL would be better

            1. jia you jia you
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              would prefer a better back up defender to cover any Trent rests

            2. ZimZalabim
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              money issues
              Could have gone for Saiss and Ings but the norwich fixture and doherty returns in the first game week swayed me

              Any ideas on what to do going forward ? Considering chelsea assets alonso or giroud for dcl unless son looks bad

              1. jia you jia you
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 12 days ago

                downgrading Doherty does allow you upgrade your team in general perhaps but he could then punish you with double digits 😉 I'm probably just going to ignore Chelsea myself until next season

          2. Benteke Fried Chicken
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 12 days ago

            DCL gotta go surely?!

            But to be honest there isn’t much in his price range.

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

              yup considering swap to Giroud or dropping him down to connolly and getting Alonso in for the 3.9 fodder and playing 4-5-1 not sure what other options i have unless I sell son

          Any standout differentials for this GW? Stay away from Chelsea? On paper it looks like load up on City Utd Liv.

            • 3 Years

            Liverpool may rotate

          Unbelievable scenes when the day Aubameyang becomes top of the list for striker points after a 16 point haul he’s looking at a price drop.
