Scout Notes

Should FPL managers sell Aubameyang ahead of Arsenal’s tough fixture run?

Arsenal 2-1 West Ham United

  • Goals: Alexandre Lacazette (£8.5m), Eddie Nketiah (£6.0m) | Michail Antonio (£6.4m)
  • Assists: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m), Dani Ceballos (£5.5m) | Ryan Fredericks (£4.5m)
  • Bonus: Nketiah x3, Ceballos x2, Lacazette x1

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m) is top of the charts for Fantasy Premier League transfers out ahead of Gameweek 3, with over 250,000 FPL bosses having offloaded the Gabon international since last Saturday’s deadline.

Modest returns in the opening two Gameweeks is one reason for the exodus but Arsenal’s upcoming fixture run is arguably the single biggest contributing factor, with the Gunners now facing five fixtures against sides who finished in the top half last season.


In nine meetings against these five clubs last season, Aubameyang delivered just two goals and one assist.

Even a player who consistently boasts one of the best goal conversion records in the division would struggle with his underlying numbers in these games: the premium midfielder managed only two shots on target (scoring both, naturally) and averaged less than one effort in the box per appearance.

Top half last season doesn’t necessarily mean top half this season, of course, and the jury is still out on a Sheffield United backline without the services of Dean Henderson (£5.5m).

Liverpool’s high defensive line was exposed by Leeds in Gameweek 1, meanwhile, and Aubameyang put Manchester City to the sword in the FA Cup semi-final in July.

Still, the fact remains that the Gunners’ Gameweek 3-7 opponents were all in the top six for fewest goals conceded in 2019/20.

Aubameyang will almost certainly bag at least one attacking return, maybe even a handful, in his upcoming five matches, but is he likely to outscore the premium assets from the other ‘big six’ clubs over the same timeframe?

And in how many of these fixtures would we realistically captain the Gabon international?

On paper, a premium midfielder exchange seems to be a straightforward decision – but FPL, as this weekend showed, may have other ideas.

ONE SHOT

Aubameyang was by some distance the most-captained FPL asset of Gameweek 2, with over two million Fantasy managers handing him the armband.

One solitary assist for Alexandre Lacazette‘s (£8.5m) opener was all that he could muster, with the Frenchman nodding home his teammate’s cross after just 24 minutes.

The expected avalanche of points failed to materialise as both player and club struggled to carve out chances, with Aubameyang’s only shot of the match coming from distance in the 90th minute.

There was mitigation for his own display though.

Aubameyang had cultivated a good understanding with Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£5.0m) and Kieran Tierney (£5.5m) down the left flank recently and he was without both of his comrades at the Emirates, with the former benched and the latter succumbing to an injury in the warm-up.

Bukayo Saka (£5.5m) and Sead Kolasinac (£4.9m) came into the side and although Saka “assisted the assister” for both of the hosts’ goals, the rapport simply wasn’t there between the left-sided trio for much of the game.

TIERNEY UPDATE
One statistic to rule them all

Mikel Arteta acknowledged a disjointed performance from his troops after full-time, saying:

I think we were a little bit lucky in certain moments, but we found a way in the end to win it and that’s the mentality I want from the team, to always believe that we can do it until the last moment, even when we have difficult games where suffer and make it very difficult for ourselves in certain positions.

But in the end, it’s three points and that’s what we’re here for. We will take some big notes because there are a lot of things to improve.

It’s very strange because we were talking with the staff today that they had their best week in terms of decision making, quality and execution with the ball by far since I joined the club, but then in the first 15 minutes, they gave the ball to the wrong colour too often. We need to improve on that and we know that we still have a lot of work to do here, but at least they kept trying and nobody tried to hide.

On Tierney’s injury, the Arsenal boss added:

Kieran is fine. He had a little muscular discomfort in the last few days. He tried today and worked in the warm-up but he wasn’t feeling comfortable today.
 
We believed that he was going to be fit but during the warm-up, in the last 10 minutes, he said he wasn’t feeling OK. We had to make a decision. We were prepared just in case and Kola came on and had a good game.

ANTONIO BACK AMONG THE GOALS

After an anticlimactic Gameweek 1, Michail Antonio (£6.4m) was back on the scoresheet at the Emirates.

Encouragingly, he was occupying the sorts of areas that led to his purple patch of form after lockdown ended in June.

His 44th-minute goal from a Ryan Fredericks (£4.5m) cross came from inside the six-yard box and he had an excellent chance to add to that tally after the break, failing to make proper contact on an Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) delivery from close range.

Antonio then hit the bar with a header midway through the second half and saw a goalbound shot blocked in the subsequent melee.

West Ham’s awful upcoming fixture run will put many FPL managers off but few players could compete with Antonio’s underlying stats after lockdown ended and there were encouraging signs that he could recapture that form on Saturday.

MOYES GOES 3-4-3

With Mark Noble (£5.0m) injured, David Moyes called on Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) to replace him and turned to a 3-4-3 for the trip to north London.

While Jarrod Bowen (£6.4m) and Tomas Soucek (£5.0m) were not at their best, Masuaku was excellent in a left wing-back role and West Ham delivered a much-improved display following their poor performance in Gameweek 1 – something to perhaps consider for those targeting assets who play the Hammers in weeks to come.

Moyes’ troops registered twice as many shots as their hosts, with their goal not coming under much threat after Lacazette’s opener – that is, until a lapse in concentration allowed Dani Ceballos (£5.5m) to set up Eddie Nketiah (£6.0m) for Arsenal’s late winner.

Moyes said of his side’s display:

We were massively improved from last week. We made chances, played well, wanted to be as good as we could. But ultimately we are playing a form team. I am disappointed that we have not come away with a point at least.

Arsenal XI (3-4-3): Leno; Holding, Gabriel, Kolasinac; Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka (Luiz 89′); Willian (Pepe 64′), Lacazette (Nketiah 77′), Aubameyang.

West Ham United XI (3-4-3): Fabianski; Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Fredericks, Rice, Soucek, Masuaku (Anderson 85′); Bowen (Yarmolenko 83′), Antonio, Fornals (Haller 87′).

    auba to kdb worth a hit?

    1. pakornk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Would love mor opinions on this. Arsenal on their day can beat Liverpool with auba scoring

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Imo opinion Arsenal were fortunate to beat West Ham

    2. VISH
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Correct. Arsenal looked bad against West Ham. If Tierney plays they have a chance to beat Pool but if he is out then Arsenal look disjointed at the back.

    3. KUN_DE_BRU_YNE
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      If you hold this GW then you will hold for next Gw too, so compare with two GWS if auba worth +4 over KDB

    4. PastaConcerto
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I'm not sure myself, unlike the torrent of peer pressure to do so. Only time will tell. I may wait a match and get Sterling for Leeds in GW 4.

    5. Coolboy9191
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Nope auba will score against pool followed by home to sheffield. Im gonna TC him for Sheffield game

  2. pakornk
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Egan is banned for only 1 match right? Keep or sell?

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      3 I think, thought the next match available was Oct 3 or around there

    2. Apwilkin
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Just one match. But there fixtures are terrible when he comes back. If you can FT get him out now to avoid a potential price drop. But if you are like me and had other fires, hold him this week and pray you dont have more pressing fires next week to put out.

    3. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I'd sell

  3. Vazza
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I have KDB and Sterling but No Salah. Should I be concerned?

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        yes

      2. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Not at all

      3. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I think so, yes. Why did you do that?

      4. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Maybe. But you're good in gw4

    • HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      People who are writing off the Man Utd assets. Remember this time last week a lot of people were writing off Kane and Son after 1 bad game.

      Players like martial, Bruno will come good. Hold those knees.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        They have Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea and Everton in the next 6.

        1. Joggers Nipple
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Arsenal were poor vs West Ham, Spurs have just let in a few vs SOT, Chelsea have Kepa and EVE have Pickford.
          Im hopeful

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Far too optimistic.. All are still top 6 contenders and not teams that promise points.

            1. Joggers Nipple
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Sure contenders but not sound defences. Imo

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                2 months, 14 days ago

                All of them still decent defenses to me.

                1. Joggers Nipple
                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 14 days ago

                  Everton and Chelsea have good defences? For real?

                  1. Flair
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    2 months, 14 days ago

                    Everton conceded 1.14 xG and only conceding to wondergoals, yes. Allan and Doucoure making a massive impact to the midfield. Chelsea will greatly improve when Thiago Silva plays.

        2. footballdog
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          They do well against the top 6

      2. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Currently liabilities, not assets

        1. HurriKane
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          lol form since lockdown suggest otherwise.

          jeez relax. cant become a liability based on just one game.

      3. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        The question is, when will it be? Given lack of match fitness and fixtures and the alternatives at hand, I'm not getting any of them in the near future

        1. HurriKane
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          haul against brighton will change your mind. funny people like you seem to think united are suddenly sh1it based off one game

          Given the quality of their players they will rise.

          1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Not saying they are sh1tty but obviously can wait. BHA looked good defensively since the draw against CHE in pre season, and form of other options making it hard to trust them to be a better option atm. I'd hold but not buying

      4. PastaConcerto
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Exactly

    • KUN_DE_BRU_YNE
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      A) TAA + Digne + 4.5 striker(non playing)
      Or,
      B) James + keane + Richarlison

      Also,
      Will you put foden in your team with podence backup?
      Either zaha + 4.5mid
      Or,
      Foden + podence

      1. bennyp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        TAA + Digne.
        Triple Everton should scare you. I'd stay away from it. Don't expect them to walk over Palace and then Liverpool 2 weeks later.

        Foden + Podence

      2. Sanchit

          • 3 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Yup B have 12 starters, mainly for FODEN backup
          In A 11th starters will be podence/Foden

        Yep. Wood is good. I want him in for Adams. He seems to always snag a few points

      Regretfully played my Wildcard. Thoughts?

      Ryan
      TAA Digne Saiss
      KDB Sterling (c) Son Podence
      DCL Jimenez Mitro

      Steer Burke Mitchell Justin

      0.8 in the bank to bring in Salah for Sterling or KDB if needed.

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Nice, all looks good aside from Digne for me, for that price you want cs potential but imo that looks unlikely

        1. Francescoli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          They got a clean sheet away to Spurs first game of the season. The defence can't be that terrible right?

        2. Harry the Hack
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          With Crystal, BHA, Soton and Newcastle in next 5 i'd expect at least a couple

      2. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Like it, but if I'm on WC I'd rather Martinez and Dunk

        1. Francescoli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I checked the fixtures and Vila have a horrible run.

          1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Save points galore

            1. Francescoli
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              I prefer clean sheets from my keepers 🙂

              Aston Villa: ful, LIV, lei, LEE, SOU, ars

              1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 14 days ago

                Only LIV and LEE look really hard imo

      3. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        So you've basically picked this week's dream team with Digne and Saiss who were in last week's dream team?

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          no, he bought City and Wolves. Nothing wrong with being ahead of the curve.
          I dont agree with all the picks though.

        2. Francescoli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I really wanted to max out on Wolves for their GW3-8 run. DCL I had already and wanted to keep. Everton have good fixtures so I think Digne is a decent shout. Mitro I brought in for Adams, as he is the talisman and has a good run of fixtures. The two Man City mids are in there as sword and shields. I can get Salah in once Liverpool's fixtures turn for the better. I toyed with Rashford in the midfield but settled on Son. For my goalkeeper I considered Pickford, Ryan and Martinez. Pickford has slightly better fixtures than Ryan but is 0.5 more. Martinez has terrible fixtures so I took him out of the equation.

      4. Amey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Lamptey
        Taylor
        Some good 4.5m options.

        If you have Ryan, get his back-up GK. (I'm not sure about Walton as he was flagged so ...)

        Attack looks mint

        1. Francescoli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Yeah I'll get the back up Brighton keeper which I think is Steele right?

          I looked at Lamptey but didn't want to double up on Brighton defence. Taylor could be a good shout but is he better than Justin? I'm pretty keen on having a Wolves defender and an Everton defender as the fixtures are there.

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Digne can be sacrificed IMO. But it's a good team 🙂

      5. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Downgrade digne to Taylor/lamptey & upgrade Podence?

    • Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Play Taylor or Mitchell?

      1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        T

      2. Najoman86
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Hard to go past Mitchell, at this stage. Would reassess if Burnley confirm the availability of Tarkowski & Mee.

    • Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I know son and Kane were great but they just seemed to expose Southampton's high line.
      No way Steve Bruce's Newcastle are playing the same way.
      Still can't see spurs scoring againt sides that defend deep. Where's the creativity? Not in midfield! Not from the full backs!

      I have both but not confident at all to captain them.

        Agree.

          Not really.
          No Salah in GW1 and no DCl in GW2 means I'm still at 1.4m
          A huge green arrow from GW1 though.

          1. Amey

      2. Apwilkin
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Agreed. I certainly don’t see any massive hauls like that coming. Defend deep and own the midfield (not too difficult against spurs), and I can see a lot of sides getting good results against them.

        Facing Newcastle they will have Bale and Reguilon. Should be entertaining at least.

        I started off the season with Kane with GW3 very much in mind. If I remember correctly I posted that anyone who didn't have him in their team this coming weekend would need to be wearing an industrial nappy. Newcastle are so poor that Brighton could put three past them and I fear for them this season. Much as GW1 was Salah's and GW2 was Mane's GW2 was Son's but GW3 will be Kane's. Cricket score incoming. 😀

        Save the WC.
        1) Noone clear about form yet. Dream Team in GW1 scored >30 points in GW2

        2) new signings can change a lot of things. Could lead to new systems and change to the players role.

        3) we're not sure about which United/Chelsea assets to bring in yet

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            They were playing against City....

            I'd love to bring Vinagre in, if Marcal is out for a while

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          A. Foden & KDB or Sterling + £5.0m
          B. KDB & Sterling

          Is there a case for Foden and one of KDB/Sterling for a City MID double-up instead of KDB & Sterling? Enables one to diversify premium midfield selections, whilst still having a City double-up?

          1. ManofKent
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            If we knew Foden was going to start regularly then yes

            1. Najoman86
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years

              Indeed, City rotation is always the concern

          2. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Yes. Foden should be well worth it for 6.5, the price is so low and an absolute bargain. Go for it if you want. I'm considering Foden + Sterling + KDB.

            1. Phil's Stamps
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              I asked this earlier but who would you choose between VVD and Foden? Surely VVD longer term outscores him comfortably? On a WC and can't choose between them.

          Anyone keen on Thiago’s prospects? Think he’ll get a fair few assists this season. Thinking of doing robbo and soucek out for Thiago and coady

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Foden is .5 more, Podence is .5 less. Can't see Thiago getting many returns.

          2. PastaConcerto
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years

            He looks a class above if he gets the minutes!

          3. Meinhoff
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Maybe in the near future, when he drops in price a little and gets used to Klopp system.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            At some point in the season you might fancy a double Liverpudlian defence or even Salané but your snookered if you're holding Thiago.

              Foden IMO, as a City fan. Mahrez seems to have lost Pep's trust, started only 1 of the last 5 games. Pep loves Foden too and he's been excellent for him.

            which MID is better

            a: Salah / KDB / Son / James / Podence

            b: Salah / KDB / Bruno / Podence / Costa

              I know it was Manchester United's first game of the season last weekend but there were warning signs that Bruno might not be so fruitful this campaign so A definitely the smarter play especially with Son in there as well.

                Is it worth doubling up on WOL with Podence & Jimenez??

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Podence is tempting but there is rotation risk. Klich should get the odd penalty to tide him through meh fixtures

              1. FPL ElasticO

                • 6 Years

                I'm also thinking between those two options. Both return attacking points so far.....

              • 6 Years

            1. Holmes
              • 7 Years

            Yay or nay?

            ASM & Vardy -> Rodríguez & Jimenez (-4)

              not sure. Vardy vs WHM, AVL looks tasty. you can just do Saint Maximin to Podence for free

                Yeah that’s the current plan, Rodriguez just feels much safer than Podence and Jimenez vs Vardy feels pretty close. Vardy -> Kane is also tempting

                  I am looking at Kane to Vardy/Jesus next week 😀

                  Rodriguez is obviously playing well, just feels like Vardy is a captain material
