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′).

    anybody got no choice but to start with 5 defenders this week?

  2. thepancakeman123
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Is this wildcard team good to go?

    Martinez
    Robertson - Van Dijk - Saiss
    De Bruyne - Fernandes - Son - Rodriguez
    Jimenez - Calvert-Lewin - Mitrovic

    Steer - Lamptey - Mitchell - Anguissa

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

      Yes - very nice if you are confident Bruno comes good soon.

      1. thepancakeman123
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        He's too good not to surely, takes all set pieces too. Cheers.

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

      Wildcard team with Fernandes in it? Pretty wild!

      I don't hate it. It's pretty solid overall actually. I still don't like Mitrovic even though he got a brace. Fulham are poor.

      1. thepancakeman123
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Lol cheers. Fulham are poor but he'll be involved in almost every goal they score. They'll finish bottom with Mitrovic getting 15 goals I reckon

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

      I like the variation between template and 'risk' players.

      You cannot write united players off from one fixture, look at Son and Mane in GW1 to GW2, so inclusion of one in a WC is exactly what I would do.

      Mitro is the biggest concern. I don't think Fulham will be scoring many this season.

  3. Marcin the Pole
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Did Auba + Egan -> KDB +Saiss last night for free. Is it worth taking out ASM for a hit to bring in Foden/Podence, and if so which would you prefer?
    Cheers chaps

    1. thepancakeman123
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Yes and Podence

    2. AC Yew
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I would next few fixtures look juicy

      1. AC Yew
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 14 days ago

        For Podence

    3. Lukakus Unit
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Is ASM confirmed out? He won't drop if he's flagged, and neither Foden nor Podence is nailed (especially with City playing Bournemouth mid-week).

      I'd use my bench for a week (as long as you have a playable bench player).

      1. Marcin the Pole
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Not confirmed out and likely to drop tonight. I'd like to hold my value if possible tbh.

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

    Kindly rate my WC team. 0.0 ITB

    Guaita - (Steer)

    TAA - Saiss - Lamptey - Mitchell - (Dunne)

    De Bruyne - Salah - Rodriguez - Podence - (Burke)

    Werner - Jesus - Mitrovic

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Jesus is frustrating he will get points in that team but he is just not good enough.
      I would go Burke to Foden and you got 3 mil spare.
      Enough for something like Mitrovic to Jimenez /Dcl and maybe some other upgrades.
      Foden will see some rotation so would need a bench if getting him.
      How long does Mitchell have his place for?
      Guita he such a good keeper should be fun watching him save a few pens.

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

        Jesus is well worth it when nailed, which he is.

        1. Albrightondknight
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          He may still be a decent FPL option and I probably would be playing that position for City. My point is he is just not good enough to even be back up for Kun in that team.

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

            He's a more than decent option, he's excellent. Averages a G/A every 90 minutes, him being nailed with those fixtures is ideal.

  5. AC Yew
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Zaha or Rodriguez to join a mid of the following:
    Salah Son Podence KDB

    (No other Everton or Crystal Palace cover)

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

      You need Everton cover. Rodriguez and it ain't close.

      1. AC Yew
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Also need Chelsea cover agh!!
        Could do either Ings or Wilson to DCL?

        1. Albrightondknight
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I was sure I would go double Che attack but only Werner now.
          West Brom fixture looks good for him.

      2. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        This

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

    DCL, Ings, Jimenez too too much funds spent on forwards?

    1. The Handsome Hunk
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I am thinking the same. Look below.

  7. The Handsome Hunk
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    On WC:

    a) Adams + Sterling
    or
    b) Ings + Son

    1. thepancakeman123
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Depends on who else you have. If you have a De Bruyne or Salah as captain potential already then B.

      1. The Handsome Hunk
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Yes I have both + thinking about Sterling as a differentiator.

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Tempting, for me it’s between playing 3-4-3 or 3-5-2:

          A) Anguissa, Jimenez, Ings
          B) Bruno, Mitrovic, Brewster

          Other attackers are KDB, Salah, Son, Rodriguez, DCL

          1. The Handsome Hunk
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            A is much better looking at fixtures, Form. Bruno is playing too deep for the value. Martial is the man from ManUtd

            1. RamaJama
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Cheers, just feel that THAT midfield 😉 but A also more flexible regarding upgrading/downgrading forwards

        2. thepancakeman123
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          That's fair. I just don't like Adams. Could go Mitrovic instead? I know Fulham are poor but I still reckon he scores about 15 even if they go down.

          1. The Handsome Hunk
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Yeah could be. But fixtures and Stats are with Adams. Although I had adams from Starts and feels unlucky.

    I was 70/30 going Sterling before watching the game. But KDB is a machine.
    Sterling still has the upside that he can be explosive as a C option.
    Then there is ownership
    5% to 35%
    Sterling is either a great diff or a stupid move if KDB keeps hailing with that ownership. Just a standard horrible FPL decision as per usual 🙂

    1. Lukakus Unit
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I was on the fence as well, but brought in KdB, as KdB might get a few price rises before next week.

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

      Just get KdB. You can bring Sterling in as a differential double throughout the season when the fixtures align.

      1. Flair

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          The only options for having them both is dropping Salah and that ain’t happening so a choice has to be made.

    3. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I went Sterling - it’s done. Can’t avoid a gamble - Sterling’s ownership numbers are too tempting.
      It may backfire but it’s easy to go sideways if I have too.

      1. tokara

        Same like salah vs mane, they both w get points. Chill

      Interesting, the "defense is pointless" approach.

      Martinez (Foster)
      James - Keane - Saiss (Lamptey, Ferguson)
      Salah - KDB - Foden - Podence (Reed)
      Jesus - Jimenez - Werner

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Not the worst defence I have ever seen and they all have some attacking threat

      2. The 12th Man

        It’s better than my defence.

            Coleman,Saiss,Ayling,Lewis,Ferguson

            I do have 2.1m itb and plan on shifting some of it there.

        Interesting too that you have gone Foden and Podence.
        I will have mid 5 of
        Salah KDB Rodríguez Barnes and Podence
        But really want Foden too.

              Jesus is 95% nailed, good enough for me. Severely doubt he won't start all the games until Aguero returns.

                If you are okay than its fine. But it is wasting of wildcard once Foden, Jesus, Podence starts getting benched. Plus you dont have good defense to counter that. GL.

          Also Foden and Podence don't really need improving on imo

          1. The Handsome Hunk
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Both are not nailed.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Podence is fairly nailed with how he's performing. Foden can start half the games and be excellent value for 6.5.

        Nice! Got a similar set up with DCL & TAA over Keane & Jesus.

        I actually love this. you got a lot of players with great fixtures plus triple City attack.
        But as others have said you probably need some Eve attack.
        The defence looks fine to me.

        1. The Handsome Hunk
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Wolves & Man City Scoring 0 will hurt his team badly although it ihas less probability of that.

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

            More chance of me getting a date with Emma Watson than Wolves and City blanking.

            1. The Handsome Hunk
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              City is impossible. But Wolves can. and it will.

                I meant the chance of both of them blanking in the same week!

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

          Thanks. It's very likely to change over time but it's a nice starting point. I wish I had Rodriguez.

      7. Marcin the Pole

        Interesting, but too risky to go without TAA surely.

      8. Kakashi Of The Leaf
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Love the attack but not the defence. Feels like a temporary fix.
        James wont give you long term nailedness. You will find it difficult to get Trent back.
        Liverpool s fixtures from GW 6 you need Trent

      Finally pulled the trigger on WC last night. Is doubling up on Jrod and DCL too much? Better to have Son, Salah, KDB and Podence? Or Podence better as fifth mid

      1. thepancakeman123
        • 2 Years

        I've doubled up on them. Their fixtures look great and more importantly they're playing very well.

        1. Chilli Heatwave
          • 2 Years

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          If so TAA to Robbo and Taylor to Saiss

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Yes it is. Saiss is an excellent call but scared of missing out on TAA's goals from direct free kicks. Robertson has scored more since the beginning of restart though.

    • Right In The Stanchion

        Do we know if Pulisic and Ziyech are playing this GW? Will make Werner even more likely to destroy WBA

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          We can hope, although I’m not optimistic. Let’s wait for the presser.

        3. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Can’t see Pulisic being rushed. Haven’t heard much about Ziyech either so doubt he starts too.

        4. thepancakeman123
          • 2 Years

        Podence looked so good last night, skinning KDB like that for the goal and had a couple of great efforts. Very happy to have him

        1. Boberella
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Agree.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      • Kakashi Of The Leaf
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Seen so many drafts without TAA or Robertson in. Do we have enough data in 2 weeks to suggest that TAA and Robbo wont provide the value they did previously??
        TAA 4 goals 14 assists last season. Even without cs he beats the 7-7.5m mids.
        Personally looking at a GW 6 WC With TAA Robbo double up untill GW 18/20

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

          Had both GW1

          Kept both on my GW2 wildcard

          Probably staying for a long, long time... Except if I really need to move to 3-5-2 when, say, Ziyech and Bruno blast off

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

          Well, they looked much better at the back against Chelsea in the first half, with Trent looking much closer to his old self. If I was on a WC, I would definitely have one of them. There’s plenty of emerging value players in the midfield and up front, so it’s not that difficult to fit one in.

      • Whats the Huth
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Looking for Wolves fans. Or others with knowledge.
        Semedo arrival. This means podence loses his place - correct? Even if rotated, he’s no longer nailed.

        Klich is the best 5.6 mid around now?

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

          No, Semedo will play RWB allowing Traore to play up too with Jimenez and Podence/Neto

          1. Whats the Huth
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            So. He rotates with Neto?

            1. Whats the Huth
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Might still be worth the risk. He looked great

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

      • Chilli Heatwave
        • 2 Years

        Any thought on this WC team?

        Salah KDB Son Rodríguez Podence

          I won't even bother to look at the OR of the winner at this time, or any other time along the season. Still a long way to go and the most important thing is you make it at the end, and achieve your target. There is a lot of luck involved, and you just have to accept and as long as you make right decisions, you will find yourself around where you want at the end.

          1. gooberman
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            I was really just demonstrating what a rancid start this has been to the season. My strategy of wildcarding in GW2 was aimed at really attacking the first few weeks to try and get a good start for once but I've actually had probably the worst start ever. Utterly vomit inducing.

            1. ZeBestee
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Yeah, but these things happen. For instance, Grealish should have returned yesterday, at least a goal or 2, but somehow missed all those chances. The difference between scoring and not is fine line. On the other hand, Everton's DCL took his chances well. For me, I will just accept and move on to the next gw and see how the season pans out.
