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′).

    Is taking a -8 for this move too much or worth the hit given the players out?

    Aub/Barnes/Sarr/DCL Out
    Martial/Rashford/Pulisic/Nketiah In

    1. Wolfman180
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Nketiah would be benched in a 352 formation

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years

      Worth it

    3. jia you jia you

      considering how bad Bournemouth have been looking... worth it!

    Bottomed. Thoughts on this fh draft folks? Can change the city attack around depending on today's line up.

    For a hail mary FH - thoughts on this?

    Martinez
    Robbo Maguire Laporte (if he doesn't play tomorrow)
    Salah Mahrez Martial Saint-Maximin
    Jesus Firmino Rashford

    3.9 Dendoncker Lascelles Simpson

    Will keep an eye on the City/Liv game and shift players who likely to get rotated from this.

    1. The Suspended One
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Firmino quite a punt

    2. sunnyh

      FH has to have Bruno

  4. Joyce1998

    1. The Suspended One
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Pulisic more explosive but injury and rotation prone, depends on your bench

    2. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      i want to know too

    3. Soto Ayam

      Willian. On pens and free kicks too

  5. bigdip
    • 8 Years

    1 FTs (0.1 itb). Chasing in ML league and everyone has Son & Rashford.

    DDG (Martin)
    TAA/ Saiss/ Lascelles (Kiko,Lundy)
    KDB/ SON/ Mane/ Bruno (Saka)
    Jimenez/ RASHFORD/ (GREENWOOD)

    Risk it and do Son, Nketia & Rashford to Saint Maximilan, Greenword & Kane for - 8 hit?

    1. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Hell no.

  6. TheRealDonaldTrump

    My team is barely scraping by and I've been taking minor hits every gameweek to slowly fix my team, but it's still a huge mess... please point me in the right direction - what should be my next move?

    Pope - Reina
    Egan - Lundstram - Saiss - Fernandez - Targett
    Saka - Traore - Salah - KDB - Martial
    Auba - Jimenez - Rashford

    this big at the front thing isnt working out too well, with all my mini league rivals having held on to TAA, Doherty and the like...

    1. jia you jia you
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      that defence will see you sink like a stone so I'd sort that out!

      1. jia you jia you
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        downgrade Auba and use the money to improve defence

        1. TheRealDonaldTrump
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 13 days ago

          ikr? 🙁
          luckily(?) i have 2.2 ITB.

          so Lundstram and Targett out for, Maguire/WanBissaka & Azpi?

          but this will see me stay on Auba for the Wolves game... and still leave me w/o Fernandes, which is scary..

          what do you think?

          1. jia you jia you
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            can't have them all but a better defence and one more premium mid would be my targets

        2. TheRealDonaldTrump
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 13 days ago

          or like you said, i could downgrade Auba to someone like Greenwood and upgrade 1 of Lund or Targett to.... one of the Man U boys or even TAA???

              • 3 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              Yeah he did. Willian did also who I plan to get in. Have no chips left so not worrying about price rises. Still some football to be played which could alter plans

              1. Dynamic Duos
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 13 days ago

                Yeah no to fused about the rise of Greenwood take it for a look at tonight's match before deciding

      Which move do you prefer for a Hit:
      A) Auba, Sarr > Rashford, Willian
      B) Lascelles/Femnia/Taylor (who?) and Sarr > 3.9 Def and Willian

      1. Albrightondknight
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        A

    • bigdip
      • 8 Years

      If you have a Triple Cap chip, in which GW are you using it and on which player?

      1. GuenDoozy
          1 month, 13 days ago

          I would use it on Bruno this week

        • Greek Freak
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Salah or Mane vs. Villa is my top choice, but will re-evaluate after the City game. If I decide against it, it'll probably be on a City player vs. one of the remaining rubbish teams.

        • HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Rashford vs BOU could be a maverick choice
          Liv v Villa too
          Wouldn't wait too long to use it

      2. akhilrajau

        My current team

        Pope,Martinez

        Bank: 0.1m, FT: 1

        what to do with this? can i do -4)/-8 hit to take off mane and dcl to include pulisic/willian or kane etc.. please suggest i am totally confused my rival team is 10 points more than me

      3. Pep Roulette
        • 2 Years

        Who is likely to be rotated?

        A. Pulisic

        B. Willian

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          given the form of united and wolves + 4th spot up for grabs maybe neither

        2. sunnyh
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Common sense dictates that Frank can’t afford to drop either

        3. Pep Roulette

          Yeah that makes sense!

        does Pulisic start next game ?

        1. FOO FIGHTER
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Pretty sure he will

          • Soto Ayam
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 13 days ago

            I'd imagine so

        2. Pep Roulette
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Is Mount to Pulisic/Willian worth a hit?

          1. fcsaltyballs
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            have you decided between Pulisic and Willian yet

            1. Pep Roulette
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              First I have to decide whether selling Mount for a hit is worth it or not

              1. Soto Ayam
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 13 days ago

                Same boat. I don't think I will. -4 is hard to make up for a deep lying mid, and he might start against wat

          2. Soto Ayam
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 13 days ago

            I'd go Willian as I think he's more reliable. Mind you, I was burnt by pulisic's devestating run of 2 pointers earlier in the season

          3. Nabs Kebabs
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Yes, to Willian

        3. FOO FIGHTER
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Surely need triple UTD attack vs BOU?

            Fernandes Martial Rashford

            1. waldo666
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              I'm still debating a third attacker or AWB to go with Bruno and Rashy.

              1. FOO FIGHTER
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  I have Rash and Martial at the moment. Pending Son vs SHU could switch to Fernandes.

              2. fcsaltyballs
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 13 days ago

                AWB a good attacking option too

            2. Pep Roulette

                    out of the blue Willian?
                    Maybe Towers are pushing uo players who score well in a GW?

                      You must be checking the wrong site, mate.

                      The site I checked said Willian rise and Barnes fall, so I made the transfer around 10pm yesterday.

                      This "towers" conspi talk is just sad to see.

                  Should I put Taylor(SHU) or Ritchie(WHU) to be the first on the bench? Already have Pope

                  Sarr/Saka/DCL -> Pulisic/Foden/Nketiah for -4?

                    Yep, had a free shot of doing Rashford back to Auba but didn't.
                    Massive differential who will get sold by quite a few.

                  imagine the jubilation when I saw the scoreline of 4-0 and knowing that started Saka.

                  Only to find out that he didn't even play

                        downgrade to Nketiah could be an option.

                        Am considering taking a hit this week, to get rid the 2/3 of Sarr, DCL, Alonso

                          aha - fellow Sarr/DCL owner. hasn't been fun.

                          I'm thinking of this -4 (as I mention above):

                          Sarr/DCL/Saka->Puli/Foden/Nketiah

                            yea it hasn't been fine 🙁

                            similar thoughts but for me I'd need funds and prioritizing getting the 3rd United player perhaps.

                              yeah, i already have 3x United. If you don't, grabbing Greenwood is tempting as long as you have a solid first sub.

                  Which move do you prefer?

                  A) Auba + Perez to Jesus + Fernandes
                  B) Auba + Perez to Rashford + Mahrez
                  C) DCL+ Perez to Greenwood/Nketiah + Fernandes
                  D) Perez + Traore to Fernandes + Foden

                  Still have BB.

                      fighting for survival and good run coming up
                      if any I would be looking at Antonio but means starting him every week

                        Debating this, can’t decide between having :
                        A Mahrez and Foden or
                        B Pulisic/Willian and Boden/Antonio

                              Yes Foden as first sub.

                                i think you start foden if you have him, you just need a solid first sub if you do

                      Thoughts on DCL + Lascelles -> Greenwood + Alonso?
                      Would set me up for a 352/451 moving forward with a couple of differentials and some flexibility to get in more city assets.

                            Watch the West Ham game and maybe have a second thought.

                              Fair, and assuming you're a chelsea fan I'm more than happy to be talked out of it...
                              Would much rather a Man U def but struggling to get the cash.

                              Any ideas with the above? Ditch Son to upgrade def is an option.

                              1. BDA Shadow

                                Man U, Wolves, Spurs, all look great options.

                              Watched most of it, he definitely gets forward. I actually own him but getting rid on WC.

                              My personal thoughts on him are he feels he needs to score/assist when the roster is depleted. Pretty sure his attacking returns have been when there have been injuries to the midfield/forwards. Now with Chelsea at full strength I’m not as inclined to keep

                              1. Pulisick

                          Would you consider Azpi safer but I presume you are saying stay away from Che defence.
                          It’s the appeal of the next 4 fixtures.

                            I wouldn't go anywhere near any of them. West Ham are a relegation team who hadn't scored in 3 games, that's happened all season to Chelsea.

                              Fair enough Aurier to one of them for a hit is not looking good the more I look at it would need an attacking return as well as CS to make a gain. I suppose that why there is the mantra never take a hit for a defender.

                        I wouldn't do it. Not Alonso anyway. Need a consistent hitman to get on the end of his crosses.

                      Saint-Maxim is a beast. Want to try and fit him in my team somehow.

                          All the talk about him but Almiron's doing well too. He also takes penalties if Ritchie isn't playing.

                            not a big fan of Almiron
