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′).

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 9 Years

      Since you have Salah as a captain option, I would wait another week to get KdB, so B only.

      1. Dreams
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Thank you

  4. EmreCan Hustle
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Want to do Auba to KdB for a hit. Should I wait till after the Carabao Cup games or do it now?

    1. Jebiga
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      When are Carbao cup games ?

      1. EmreCan Hustle
        • 9 Years

    2. Dreams
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      I also want to do it but I will till the cup games are over.

      1. EmreCan Hustle
        • 9 Years

        Cheers.

    3. Holmes

        Cheers.

    4. Tonyawesome69

      City will probably play a 2nd string team in the cup. Keep an eye on the price

  5. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Best 4.5 mid?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Bissouma when he’s back

    2. Dreams
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Burke if he is able to nail down the place.

  6. Jebiga
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Is Salah esential this season ?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      No, last game showed that Mané is just as capable of hauling and Salah blanking

    2. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      No

    3. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yes. You can’t C him away but you can at home most weeks.
      So for me he is is one of 3 usual suspects for C and worth the cash.

      1. Mancini
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Home and away doesn’t really matter until fans are back in

    4. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Not for me - but you saw in GW1 what can happen.

  7. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    McCarthy
    TAA Digne Saiss Ayling
    KDB Havertz Podence
    Werner Jimenez DCL

    Tierney Bissouma Reed

    Took a -8.
    Havertz>Sterling next week
    Wildcarding in GW 6 for Liverpool players.

    1. Jebiga
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Havertz out before WBA ?

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Nah after WBA

        1. Jebiga
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Ah ok, then 🙂

  8. ZoumasBloomers
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Anyone else very worried McCarthy is about to get dropped?

    1. Dreams
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I am. He was horrible against Spurs.

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I would be, yeah. Unlikely to be next match but I wouldn't be surprised to see it happen sooner rather than later.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I wouldn’t be, the defensive line is the problem, not the GK

    4. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yes. He was terrible against Spurs. Caught in no man’s land too many times. This wasn’t helped by Ralph’s suicidal high line, however, so it depends whether the coach will blame himself for the performance or take it out on his players.

    5. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Would be if his backup wasn't Angus Gunn, who I'm fairly certain wouldn't get a game in my 5 a side team.

      1. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Wouldn’t it be Fraser Forster?

  9. Jafalad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    I take it everyone's getting in Foden after last night?

    Budget enabler and plays for Citeh.

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      played well? (other than goal)

      1. Jebiga
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Amazing player. He was dancing

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Now he's truly nailed in my team!

          1. Jebiga
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            hahaha

      2. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Seemed to be getting in the right positions.

      3. Jafalad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Glowing match reports.

    2. The 12th Man
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Nope. KDB here.
      No room for Foden

      1. Jafalad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        No room at his price? The fifth midfielder and answer to our prayers.

        1. The 12th Man
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          I’m on 3-5-2.
          Salah,KDB,Son,Rodriguez,Podence

          I have money itb for Podence to Foden but that’s a crazy move with Wolves fixtures.

    3. Jebiga
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Also very good player. But he will spare time with Mahrez, who is also great player

    4. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      On my watchlist but at risk from Torres and Mahrez

    5. Nightrain_
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I assume Mahrez will eat his time and also got the new winger ready to be rotated ?

      For now, Ederson, KDB and Jesus are the safest, and after that, Sterling and Ake I guess

    6. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      It's a good thing he can play on the wing and in DavidSilvas role. Could be a great bargain this year.

    7. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      There is always the risk of rotation - he had the potential to be the value of the season and nothing from that performance has changed that opinion.
      He is class but the thing that might get him more minutes is his work rate. Pep is going to love seeing that.
      It’s actually hard to tell what his best position might be but that’s a compliment.
      My problem now is I went Podence instead of him before the game. Not a bad option but honestly wish I’d gone Foden.

  10. Mahjongking
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    -8, auba asm egan for kdb awb and podence?

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Not sure about Wan Biss

    2. Dreams
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I'd probably not get in Awb for now.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      No need for the Egan to AWB (-4) unless you have no bench cover

    4. HODGE
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      egan to james

  11. The VAR Team

    Any word on Marçal?

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

      Early days - prob a couple of weeks out of a muscular injury.

      1. The VAR Team

        Ty

  12. No Professionals

    Wc team

    Martinez
    Robertson James Saiss
    Salah KDB Son Rodriguez
    Jimenez DCL Bamford

    Steer Taylor Alzate Mitchell
    0.3itb

    I feel like KDB isn’t enough City.

    Rodriguez to podence and Jimenez to Jesus? Also frees up 1m to make Robertson TAA

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I prefer Jimmy to Jesus

      1. Flynny
        • 6 Years

        Foden?

    Morning dzzz,

    1) How long is Mitchell nailed for? PVA comes in immediately once fit?
    2) How long is dunne nailed for? Mee/Tark come in immediately once fit?
    3A) Podence + Werner or
    3B) Foden + Jimenez

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      1) prob another 3 GWs is my guess - PVA is part of non contact training now
      2) Dunne won’t be in the team much longer, first to be dropped once Tark/Mee are fit
      3) Foden and Jimenez but get your bench in order for Foden

  14. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Better option?

    A) Son & Rodriguez

    Morning all.

    Key questions on my WC:

    1. Zaha or Hamaz

    2. TTA and Taylor or Robertson and James.

    Do you think Bamford can rise again? Currently 30% on FPL stats with 3 upward arrows

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yeah the casuals will love his price and preppy Harvard looks

      1. GuenDoozy
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I can get the WC team i want if he rises again hahah

      I doubt it too many wildcards in play. But let's hope so!

  22. Live Lad

    (1) Vardy + Auba + ASM to Bamford + KDB + Son (-4)?
    (2) Tierney + Auba + ASM to KDB + Saiss + Klich (-4)? to keep Vardy

    Lol Rodriguez ownership goes up 15% and no price change ... Absolutely pathetic

    1. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Don't understand why they've locked his price. Just because he's a new player?

      1. GuenDoozy
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        would be consistent, looking at how Werner doesnt drop. Maybe its only for players that have come from a foreign league.

        1. sreten76
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          How then express fell in price Rodrigo from Leeds? Didn't he also come from another league..

    I stupidly got Bruno and Martial on my WC... do I have patience or remove one of them?

    1. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Patients

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Same here - hold, can see them beating Brighton

    3. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Have patience. They will come good esp Bruno.

    Got 1 FT, what to do with this team? Would you consider WC?
    Right now I am leaning towards Auba->Sterling. Could also do ASM to Podence for a hit, but probably not a good idea?
    McCarthy (Steer)
    James, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, Taylor, Walker-Peters
    Salah, Aubameyang, Son (Saint-Maximin) (Reed)
    Adams, Werner (Davis)

  26. mdm

    Zaha or JRod (double up with DCL)? Thanks

    1. GuenDoozy
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Have all 3 currently on WC but if I had to pick 2 i would get The Everton duo

    Is Harvey Barnes a sure starter now? Very annoying owning him last year with his early substitutions and benchings

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Pretty confident he starts most weeks now. Ünder more likely to threaten Perez's spot. Also, Barnes seems to play better without Chilwell behind him.

      1. Zim0
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        That's great! Thanks

    That impending Justin second rise will be deeply appreciated

    0.1 made to sell when he inevitably gets dropped... Or even earlier with a spare FT. Fun stuff

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yes - ideally he needs to rise before the other players we want to buy also go up. Either way it's got be Castagne longer term for me.

    2. GuenDoozy
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      No chance that he is 1st choice Leftback you reckon?

  29. Red Red Robins
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Vinagre in my WC team at 4.4, keep him there until i know about Marcal.
    Saiss was poor, Viangre was good when he came on.
    Think Vinagre a good chance of playing? Even Marcal could be moved to CB?

    I am still a tempted to go Sterling over KDB.. 😐

    Am I mad..?

    1. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      If your gut is taking you there then no.

      1. LewanGOALski
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        my gut drove me to 41 points this week so I am not sure about it 😀

        1. Ze_Austin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Even when Lewan doesn't score, he knows the goals will still come

          Trust self

          I've gone KDB C (-4) though

          1. LewanGOALski
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            Well done.

            I might go with the gut - Sterling - and re-asses when WC in the next couple of weeks

    2. Amey
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yes

      1. Amey
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Pens a huge factor now !

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Of course not

    4. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      As Salah vs Mané has recently demonstrated... No

      Heck, Sterling didn't even blank

    5. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      City will get a lot of penalties u kno. Could be scary going without him

    6. DrunkPhilosophy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      No not mad, Diff with his ownership and expected to get more goals with Aguero out.. My initial plan was Sterling but seeing KDB on pens specially with the way decisions are given makes KDB the easier more straight forward option at least for me..

    7. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I just went Sterling over KDB.
      He still has the potential to be a more explosive as a C option.
      Am I already scared not to have KDB? Yes
      It was really the diff with the ownership stats that I went for.
      KDB won the eye test hands down.
