Arsenal and Leicester retain three-man backlines for Emirates clash

Mikel Arteta and Brendan Rodgers have kept faith in their respective clubs’ recent switches to a three-man defence for their Emirates Stadium meeting on Tuesday evening.

Arsenal have now been operating in 3-4-3 since Gameweek 31+ winning every match since then without conceding a goal.

As has been the case throughout that run, Sead Kolasinac (£5.2m) sits in the back-three, joined there by David Luiz (£5.7m) and Shkodran Mustafi (£5.1m).

That means Kieran Tierney (£5.3m) and Hector Bellerín (£5.3m) are handed wing-back roles one again, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) and Bukayo Saka (£4.7m) flank Alexandre Lacazette (£9.2m) in the front-three.

As Mason Greenwood‘s (£4.6m) stock continues to rise, Eddie Nketiah (£4.4m) Fantasy credentials are still travelling in the opposite direction. After blanking in the Gameweek 33+ win over Wolves, the former Leeds loanee has been named on the bench for the second time in three matches.

Leicester’s back-three is the foundation for a slightly different shape, featuring Jamie Vardy (£9.7m) and Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.7m) at the front of a 3-4-1-2 formation.

Changing to this system played a big part in the Foxes’ 3-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out, a game in which both of their centre-forwards found the back of the net.

Ayoze Pérez (£6.1m) supports them in a number 10 role tonight with James Justin (£4.7m) and Marc Albrighton (£5.1m) acting as the left and right wing-backs respectively.

That means Ben Chilwell (£5.6m) and James Maddison (£7.4m) have not passed their fitness tests in time, while Harvey Barnes (£6.0m) is named among the substitutes for the fourth match in a row, despite his two assists against Palace.

Arsenal XI: Martínez; Kolasinac, D Luiz, Mustafi; Tierney, Xhaka, Ceballos, Bellerín; Aubameyang, Lacazette, Saka.

Leicester City XI: Schmeichel; Söyüncü, Evans, Bennett; Justin, Tielemans, Ndidi, Albrighton; Pérez; Vardy, Iheanacho.

      Lacathreat is what I called him during Wenger's last year in charge

    3. SackWenger

      Nonsense

  2. Bossworld

    2 months, 12 days ago

    ML rival made what looked like an accidental free hit. He's kept Aubameyang and brought in Pulisic. Seems he knows what he's doing after all

  3. Gudjohnsen

    How's Auba looking?

    1. SuperMane Returns
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Great. Haul potential.

      2 months, 12 days ago

      2 saves for sure. Arguably 3.

      Decent.

    Leicester are so cack, get out my team Justin and Vardy

    1. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I'm getting Vardy for the weekend, he will spank Bournemouth

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Vardy off form, Leicester off form; simple

      1. Noah’s Ark
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        He just scored a brace last game and has Bournemouth next

        1. FALSE PROFIT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          One swallow don't make a summer.

    3. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      It has to do with arsenal actually good. Out played wolves in similar manner.

    4. Costa Nostra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Vardy our before Bournemouth? Lol!!

      1. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Abot 10 games. No goal. a brace and good fixture. There is an argument there. But mids are kings atm.

  6. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Probably a daft question but why’s Barnes not getting his game? Contract or niggling injury or something?

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Just currently being used as an impact sub, doesn't fit this formation.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Isn’t he there best player? Seems strange

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Hadn't played well since restart until last game when he came on but then again, none of Leicester had.

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Might be unfit

            1. Would Ed Woodward
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 12 days ago

              I don't think so, I think it's Rodgers enjoying a tinker.

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Like the French rugby side. You never know who will turn up

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        With Barnes? Always looks good to me

        1. FALSE PROFIT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Mommy has to blow his nose before he goes out to ply

  7. Sgt. Schultz
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Auba > Kane and no AFTV and chill ! gonna b a long long GW.

  8. Pep Roulette
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    When is Maddison coming back? Any idea?

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      They desperately need him

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Exactly! No creativity in the team!

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Barnes should be starting to help with creativity

  9. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Ouch.

  10. SuperMane Returns
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Vardy roundhouse kick to the head of Mustafi

  11. Nightcrawler
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Vardy lucky to be on the pitch

  12. Pep Roulette
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Saka is so much better than Pepe

    1. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Should both be in the team. Saka on the left. Pepe on the right. Auba up front.

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Yes, this is the perfect front 3 for Arteta. I don't know why he doesn't start Auba in the middle!

        1. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Well the goals comes from left so why play him in the middle? Tactical and IT works. Not sure how he would score more if playing in laca role. Top of ranks for shots since restarte among strikers.

      2. SackWenger
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Laca up front

        1. mox81
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Laca doing a Bobby!

  13. Strchld
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Why why why I pick DDG over Martinez. Of course in my ML everyone else have Martinez and he will keep cs. Like last 3 gameweeks.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Bit early to say that. Leicester look like they could get a goal.

      1. Strchld
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I dont think so.

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

      Don't worry, I picked Martinez then shifted to Pope.

    3. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      DDG should get more clean sheets by end of season

  14. Berbs
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Who do you think will become the best FPL asset next season out of Greenwood, Saka and Foden?

    1. Cpt Crunch Scott talent
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Foden Most likely

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Saka. Because he will play every game.

    3. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Saka becuase he will get the most games

      1. Berbs
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        If Pep is to be believed then Foden should be starting regularly too with Dilva + Sane departures.

        1. diesel001
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I don't believe Pep. Sterling, Aguero, Mahrez will be his front three. Bernardo, Rodri, KDB his midfield three.

          1. JONALDINHO
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Aguero will be getting on a bit though

    4. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Foden

    5. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Foden.

      Greenwood might battle him if there’s no Sancho though.

    6. Livinginapool - Top 100 Any…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I doubt he will be, but if Greenwood's classed as a mid, then him.

      1. Team Cruel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        If the likes of Salah and Mane are midfielders then so is Greenwood. Rashford too by that logic.

        1. Livinginapool - Top 100 Any…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I agree.

        2. Amey
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 12 days ago

          So is Kane

          1. Abra Dubravka
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 12 days ago

            I was Too slow

        3. Abra Dubravka
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 12 days ago

          And Kane a defender next season

        4. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          And aubameyang

    7. Willmissudimitrypayet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Nobody on Greenwood? Because Man Utd will by another world class winger or what? If he is like a 7,5 midfielder he would be an interesting option

    8. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Not buying either at 8.5m

    9. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Impossible to tell. Depends on who the clubs buy etc.

    10. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Their prices will be adjusted next session though right?

    11. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Foden. But Saka could be outstanding too.

    12. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Greenwood due to the fact Ole will run him into the ground

      Pep will continue to rotate Foden

    13. Amey
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      No Sancho = Greenwood
      Sancho = Foden

      1. Jag-z
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Saka and foden

    14. Qaiss
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I wish I had picked Emi Martínez on WC in 31...

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        You could've joined me in benching him every week too.

        1. Qaiss
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          If I had picked him, would have played him every week. Don’t like picking 2 keepers.

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            I enjoy the pain of benched points.

    15. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      My picks post Corona have been atrocious, probably be around 500k by the end

      1. PrettyDick
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        🙁

    16. sunnyh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Obviously will wait for rest of the games, but is 352 the way to go now?

      A) Fodder --> Willian
      B) Fodder --> Antonio/Bowen
      C) Jimenez --> Vardy
      D) Kane --> Vardy, next week Fodder to Mahrez
      E) Combo of these for a -4

      If A/B then would bench Jimi against Everton

      1. No Totti No Party
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        most likely yeah

    17. Kiyoshi

      Hi All,
      What would you do with this lot, 2FT and 0.9 ITB?

      Martinez
      TAA Doherty Taylor
      Salah Bruno KDB Son
      Greenwood Jimenez Rashford

      Stek. Lascelles Guendouzi Simpson

      How would you improve it?

      Cheers

      1. InSaneMan-e
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Wait and see. I've gone 352 onwards and that's an option with pulisic/mahrez. I also got rid of rash for martial

        • 8 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Foden on Saka 5th mid so you can 352 occasionally? Unless Lascelles injury is worse than expected, in which case a 4th defender who plays in case one of your 3 starters gets rotated or injured.

        1. PortoGuy
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Thanks will definitely look at 3-5-2 as per your suggestion and the above...

          Hopefully nothing serious with Lascelles... need him to replace Taylor playing against Liverpool.

            Seems the perfect Jimmy exit plan.

      Goal should have stood; kola tries to hit nacho and misses, falls down

      If Mahrez plays the majority of the game this week would you do the below with 2ft?

      AWB and Mahrez to Gomez and Martial

        Gomez not worth it for one easy game left. He may not even start that

        1. Noah’s Ark
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Well it can be any defender up to 5.6. I currently have Doherty, Digne, Saiss and Garcia.

            Keeping AWB is the popular option for def up to 5.6. Tarkowski has been my personal choice. Aurier or Tierney are hit-or-miss.

            1. Noah’s Ark
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              Yeah I could keep but Martial is killing me. I know I’ll do the swap and AWB will haul no doubt but I think I’ve my mind made up in doing it. Thinking of possibly selling Pulisic instead of Mahrez though.

                Chelsea seems to score a lot of goals consistently every match, so I would keep Pulisic/Willian. Triple ManU is must have, but I have personally gone for 1 def (DDG) - 2 atk split (bruno + martial). I am not planning to use 2 transfers to change that into 0-3.

      I thought Saka would get rotated for Pepe in the XI this GW now that Pepe is back from baby break. Sold Saka to Foden in 352 with my FT. Kept Auba and Sarr, and both returned today. I guess I had Foden FOMO. We'll see after MCity game how that transfer went.

      Two FTs. What to do

      Martinez
      Doherty. Trent. Aurier
      Salah. Pulisic. Bruno. Martial. Kdb
      Mason. Jiminez

      Martin. DCL. Holgate. Saiss

        Potentially nothing. Wait and see. I'm considering Vardy for Bou

      This is the first time Benteke and Welbeck have both scored since the day the PS4 was released. Wow 🙂

          Daily Mail online. November 2013 last time they both scored. Brilliant.

      3 most owned: Martinez 11% EO and Vardy 9.5%EO. Guess a Vardy goal is good for us.

        And Auba 11%.

      Another Saka 8 pointer to be stuck on the bench yet again.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Get Cantwell instead and you will feel less bad for his 1-2 pointers on the bench?

            If you regustered 1000 monkeys for FPL and you gave them long enough, one of them would transfer Aubameyang out for a hit.

              Theres an infinite number of monkeys outside who'd like to talk to you about this transfer plan they've worked out.....
