Scout Notes

Willian dominates in Aubameyang’s first game as FPL midfielder

FULHAM 0-3 ARSENAL

  • Goals: Alexandre Lacazette (£8.5m), Gabriel (£5.0m), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m)
  • Assists: Willian x3 (£8.0m)
  • Bonus: Gabriel x3, Willian x2, Lacazette x1

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m) delivered for his legion of FPL owners with a second-half strike in Arsenal’s Gameweek 1 3-0 win at Fulham.

Despite a quiet first half, the premium midfielder curled home a goal very reminiscent of the strike he netted against Liverpool in the Community Shield last month.

Crucially, it was Aubameyang’s switch in position that made his Gameweek 1 outing satisfactory for his 1.5 million captainers. A combination of a goal and yellow card would have made for just five points last season, but reclassified, it afforded him a total of seven, considering Arsenal kept a clean sheet.

There was some concern over Aubameyang’s positioning in the opening period, which saw him operating rather wide and tracking back a lot. Aubameyang’s defensive duties were a far from ideal development, not just because it initially limited his attacking threat but also because it meant he had to make several “forward’s challenges” on the opposition, earning him a first-half yellow card.

Furthermore, Aubameyang’s opening day goal was severely overshadowed by a surprise monster haul from new signing Willian (£8.0m), who is surely set to become the bandwagon midfielder for Gameweek 2.

The former Chelsea man was not even expected to start at Fulham, having missed most of Arsenal’s pre-season campaign. But he came straight into the side, displacing the in-form Bukayo Saka (£5.5m) and registering a hat-trick of assists. It could have been an even bigger haul for Willian, who hit the post with a free-kick in the 27th minute.

Alexandre Lacazette (£8.5m) was another unexpected starter, at the expense of Eddie Nketiah (£6.0m), and he opened the season’s scoring in scruffy style. The Frenchman tapped home after Marek Rodak (£4.5m) saved an effort from Willian.

“[Lacazette] is in my plans. He is a player that I like a lot. But he has Eddie [Nketiah] on his back, or next to him I would say, he’s gonna push him and whoever is in better shape is going to play. The same for the rest of the team.” – Mikel Arteta

“It was the best way to start the season. We wanted to win and have a clean sheet and respect what the coach wanted. Everyone is happy. He wants us to be perfect. We worked in the week for this kind of game. We have a lot of big ambitions. I want to help the team to be on top, I know it is my job. I am really happy [at Arsenal]. It is only the press and other people that say I am not. I want to play and win titles. We want to be aggressive with and without the ball and improve every aspect of our game.” – Alexandre Lacazette

Willian was again the provider at the beginning of the second half, with centre-half debutant Gabriel (£5.0m) heading home his corner.

And he bagged a hat-trick of assists when Aubameyang converted his cross-field pass in the second half, the premium midfielder cutting inside Denis Odoi and curling home.

“With Willian I knew the performance would come straight away.” – Mikel Arteta

As a result, Fantasy managers are targeting Fulham’s defence for attacking returns moving forward. They face Leeds next, who exploited Liverpool’s well-documented ongoing defensive issues at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

Despite impressing with the ball in spells, the Cottagers were suspect in defence at Saturday lunch-time. There was too much space afforded to an unmarked Lacazette for the first goal, Gabriel rose unchallenged in the box for the second and Aubameyang found it too easy to cut inside the right-back for the third.

Michael Hector (£4.5m) denied the FPL midfielder a brace by clearing an Aubameyang shot off the line in the 79th minute, as the Cottagers struggled to keep the scoreline respectable.

Reflecting on a tough opening day for his side, Scott Parker told the BBC:

The big lesson today is to understand the fine margins in this division mean you can get punished. At this level you have to be clinical and make teams pay and on the flip side the first time they get in our box and they score. I didn’t like the second half as much. The second goal was a poor goal. At that moment we have to understand how crucial it is and I felt we were a little bit weak and accepted it. When you are a team like us that has come from the Championship you can’t let defeat after defeat really cripple you. We are going to lose more than we win but as a team you have to keep learning and developing. It has been a quick turnaround for us. We have brought players in that will improve us and hopefully there will be more. We need to get them up to speed quickly. Set plays are vitally important. We looked a little accepting. There is a realism here. Teams that struggle in this league are teams that let things get to them. We may lose two or three on the bounce, the important thing is to not let defeats get to you.” – Scott Parker

Arsenal admittedly almost conceded instantly after an early error from Gabriel, who had not played a competitive match since March. The defender allowed an Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£5.0m) back-pass to go by him, which nearly saw Aboubakar Kamara (£5.0m) get on the scoresheet but the FPL midfielder was denied by quick reactions from Bernd Leno (£5.0m).

However, beyond that, it was a relatively routine clean sheet for the Gunners as Arteta continues to transform them at both ends of the field.

While Gabriel will take plenty of headlines for his goal, Arsenal’s shut-out was, in part, earned in no small part by Rob Holding (£4.5m), who operated on the right-hand side of Arteta’s back three and is looking increasingly comfortable there. On the defender and defensive midfield team-mate Mohamed Elneny (unpriced), the Arsenal manager told BT Sport:

“Elneny is a player who has been excellent in training from day one. He’s a player I know well, having played with him. Rob (Holding) is another one is exactly the sort of player we want at the football club. He had a difficult time but he worked really hard in training. He’s playing really well.” – Mikel Arteta

There remains one slight caveat with Arsenal’s defence moving into Gameweek 2. While they were assured at Craven Cottage, Fulham did not offer very much going forward. It was Kamara who started up front for the hosts as popular FPL asset Aleksansdar Mitrovic (£6.0m) found himself on the bench following a slight injury from international duty.

Fulham XI (4-2-3-1): Rodak; Bryan, Ream, Hector, Odoi; Reed, Cairney; Cavaleiro, Onomah (De Cordova-Reid 75′), Kebano (Anguissa 63′); Kamara (Mitrovic 63′).

Arsenal XI (3-4-3): Leno; Tierney, Gabriel, Holding; Maitland-Niles, Xhaka (Ceballos 79′), Elneny, Bellerin; Aubameyang, Lacazette (Nketiah 87′), Willian (Pepe 75′).

    Are those numbers on FPL Statistics correct? Need to bring in Martial before a price rise…

    1. pablo discobar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      hes no where near a rise

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Good. Imagine he will be before the end of the GW, right?

    2. Yip Jaap Stam

      Figures are always a bit out on the first week

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        So there's no way of knowing when he'll go up in price?

      2. Flynny
        • 5 Years

        No one is close to a price rise

        1. TAT
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          If figures are off on FPL Statistics, is there anywhere you can get accurate numbers?

    3. Twisted Saltergater

      There’s no way of knowing what the thresholds are fro gameweek 1. He could rise tonight.

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        That's not good. My entire plan for GW 2 depends on getting him in in time…Or else I have to take a hit.

        1. CC22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Who do you want him in for? If your whole plan involves bringing him in then why not just do it now?

          1. TAT
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Ings. Have 0.5 to do it for free.

            I want to wait as long as possible, in case there are some surprises in the other matches (injuries for example).

            1. CC22
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              I assume you have bench options in the event of an injury? I’d always recommend waiting usually, but if you’re adamant on getting Martial and it’s your whole plan then I see no reason not to just go for it.

              1. TAT
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Yes, but the bench is cheap as it gets: Mitchell, Ayling, Vassilev (will bench Vinagre for Ayling next GW).

                I never usually do early transfers either, which is why waiting as long as possible is preferable. Getting him in after Monday night's games would be ideal.

    Worth 4pt hit?

    Wilson Bruno In

        1. Nightcrawler

          Youre overestimateing how many own salah and how many cap him

        2. My heart goes Salalalalah

    Maxi, Lascelles, Wilson... 3 essentials for any one who wants to knee jerk to Toon assets. HWTL

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      I’d put Jamal Lewis ahead of Lsacelles

    Which (if any) utd/city assets do you think will go up in price before next weekend?

    1. Bank$y
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Martial and maybe KDB by a .1

      1. pablo discobar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        bruno

    2. dshv
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Bruno maybe

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Martial most likely

  9. Flynny
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    I need 1.5m to turn Antonio into martial.

    Unless there is a problem with Werner, I'm likely to stick to the plan of salah to bruno

    All about jumping on and off these premiums at the right time.

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 10 days ago

      The problem is id want salah back immediately after chelsea

      1. Flynny
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        I mean its a super high risk strategy - but could go without tl West ham gw7.....

    2. pablo discobar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Salah will rise so awkward to get back

    3. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I think it better to look elsewhere and just leave Salah where he is

  10. Babelcopter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 10 days ago

    39 pts and 5 to go. Horrible start.. Need to stay calm thought

    1. Yip Jaap Stam
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      That’s absolutely awful.

      Just joking, it’s better then mine.

    2. Bank$y
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      You’re fine. Under 20 would be the disaster zone.

    3. Pratik
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Hardly horrible! Did you have Salah but not as captain?

      1. Babelcopter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Yes. Auba (c) Salah (vc).

        1. F_Ivanovic
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          I didn't even have Salah.

    4. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      There’s 4 guys in my cash league on under 5pts

    5. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Not bad IMO, average is 27. For GW1 that's fine.

    23 points with 5 players left. Disappointed.

    Should I stick with GW2 - Ings > Martial &
    GW3 - Auba/Mane > KDB, or just WC?

      A didn’t cap him .. and i will stay with auba and for next week too .. that west ham defence is weak.

    2. Forza

        But its true. The overall winner

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Not true. The guy that finished 2nd last year did not have Sterling for his day 1 hat-trick.

      1. Sargasso C
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 10 days ago

        This is different, sooooo much more different to Sterling (who know captained gw1). Whoever wins this had Salah as captain today. Its utterly irrelevant if you can't accept this.

      Yeah, except that's not really true, is it? I once finished 1,000th, and was beaten by two guys (girls) who only started playing in GW2. Burst my bubble a bit...

  16. ivantys

      38 points without salah, need kane and vardy to save my season now.

            1 month, 10 days ago

            One player gets 40 points out of nowhere is season though. I knew my luck's down when zaha got his second disallowed.

              Out of nowhere?
              The best fpl player in the last 3 seasons against a promoted team?

              Haha

              1. ivantys
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  lol nowhere near best. You have to admit getting 2 penalties was damn luck. That same situation happened at west ham and they didn't get one.

                  1. MosF94

                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    He broke the record for most points in a season, iirc, top-scored the next year, and came second last year... Definitely the best over that period!

                • 10 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                You'll need 40 points out of nowhere to turn it around.. which you'll get at some point in the season.

                1. ivantys
                    1 month, 10 days ago

              If you went without Salah...

                Ings > Martial and use the 2.0 elsewhere, perhaps?

                  Him and Robbo are better value than any midfielder around that price.

                  1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
                    • 6 Years
                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    Willian and Zaha are better value judging by what limited knowledge there is so far.

                • 5 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                I'd say you need a Pool full back and I don't say need lightly. Robbo looking the better bet, but then TAA looked the better bet last GW1 and Robbo then came back quickly

              6. F_Ivanovic
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                serious answer... depends. If Digne looks good for Everton I wouldn't mind getting him in and saving 1.5m there as I already have an expensive back line of Robbo, TAA and Doherty.

              The question I'm still working out...

              which formation to go with? I've left my team flexible enough to go 3-4-3 or 3-5-2

              Depends on how solid Chelsea's defence look on Monday but them vs Liverpool could be a goal fest next weekend.

              Not to worried as a Salah or Werner owner.

            14. Alexis Nonsense

              If Martial has a similar output as last season, he's not a good asset at 9m imo, unless strikers get loads of bonus for 1 goal pr game

              Something I'm missing since there is so much love for him?

                What metrics are you basing that view on? Adjusting for the position change and based on this season’s price he scored at 5.5 ppg (0.61 ppg per m) over the full season and then 7,6 (0.84) during restart. I think it’s reasonable to assume this year could be more like the latter part of last season but either way his numbers are great. He also gets a lot of assists as well as being the main striker.

                I've thought about this aswell. Rashford and Martial basically had the same numbers last year, so the difference in points mainly come down to their positioning. Since they've switched position this year it won't surprise me if the point difference between them will switch aswell. That is if Rashford can take a couple of utd's penalties...or score those extra goals in open play instead.

              Playing a ghost team but three days ago I got rid of triple captain Salah in favour of triple captain Auba, so I could have KDB. Be interesting to see if KDB or Salah come out on top this season.

                1 month, 10 days ago

                Might even be Auba now as a mid, if he can get his assist numbers up

              Fellas, do I stick with this or abandon it and WC GW3? Only 23 points with 5 to play.

              GW2 - lngs > Martial

                  More of an LFC fan than a Salah fan, and I watched all the preseason games and Mane looked significantly better than Salah
