Why Arsenal’s defenders are worth monitoring despite being downed by Vardy

Arsenal 0-1 Leicester City

  • Goal: Jamie Vardy (£10.0m)
  • Assist: Cengiz Under (£5.9m)
  • Bonus: Kasper Schmeichel (£5.5m) x3, Vardy x2, Christian Fuchs (£4.5m) x1

A fairly turgid affair at the Emirates was settled by a late Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) winner, a goal that saw Leicester City move to within a point of top spot in the Premier League.

With Brendan Rodgers initially setting his side up in a striker-less wing-back system and Arsenal struggling for invention in the final third, the game looked be meandering towards an inevitable 0-0 before Vardy’s intervention.

Emulating the tactics that brought success at the Etihad in Gameweek 3, Rodgers was asked about his “masterplan” after the game:

I don’t know about masterplan, but it was the plan. It was the idea to deny space and keep our lines tight, and then obviously play through the pressure, so yes, it worked very well for us.

I thought we started the game well, first five or 10 minutes. We had good possession and then, of course, when you come away to play against any top team, you’re going to have to deal with pressure.

Then, into the second half, our lines were even tighter, we were in a better start position for our pressure, and then we enjoyed a lot more of the ball and always looked a threat.

CASE FOR THE (ARSENAL) DEFENCE

It seems incongruous to start this piece by talking up a backline that succumbed to defeat on Sunday and are without a clean sheet since Gameweek 1 but, such is the brand of football currently being served up by Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, their defensive Fantasy assets are arguably more appealing than those further forward right now.

Despite facing Manchester City and Liverpool away, a West Ham United side that are scoring for fun and now fourth-place Leicester, the Gunners have shipped just seven goals this season – only Aston Villa, who have played a game less, have conceded on fewer occasions.

Brighton are the only Premier League team at the time of writing who have allowed fewer shots in the box per match this season, meanwhile.

In the shape of Thomas Partey (£5.0m), Arsenal now also hope they possess a top-class midfield general who can add further protection to their backline.

While Rodgers will argue that his tactics worked perfectly on Sunday, the Foxes hadn’t had a single shot within 25 yards of goal before Vardy’s 79th-minute opener.

Arteta said of his side’s display after the game:

I was really pleased with the first half, the way we pressed, the aggression we showed against a team that are very capable of breaking that pressure and creating chances against you. We were very effective against that, we were on top of the game, we restricted them to nothing, we had the right opportunities to attack good space and create some chances.

An injury to the ball-playing David Luiz (£5.5m) disrupted the Gunners at both ends of the pitch but Arteta wasn’t sure of the severity of the issue, saying:

I don’t know. We’ve lost a few players in the last week or so. David had a muscular problem and he couldn’t carry on – we’ll have to assess him in the next 48 hours.

Arsenal’s fixtures are mixed at best over the coming month but they sit top of our Season Ticker from Gameweeks 12-20 and their defenders, more of whom in the Premium Members Analysis section, are names to monitor from that point.

Wesley Fofana (£5.0m), incidentally, was excellent for the visitors, as he was last week.

AUBA ALL RIGHT

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.7m) was finally moved off the left flank on Sunday – and switched over to the right.

Arteta’s aversion to playing the Gabon international centrally continues and the premium FPL midfielder again had few sights of goal, with his early, off-target header from a Kieran Tierney (£5.4m) cross being the only time he touched the ball in the Leicester box.

Aubameyang has now blanked four Gameweeks in a row, the first time that has ever happened since his move to the Premier League.

The recalled Alexandre Lacazette (£8.4m) again had the better chances, seeing an early header ruled out for offside before fluffing his lines from another Tierney delivery close to goal.

With there being few goals from central midfield and rotation a big possibility (other than Aubameyang) further forward, there seems little appealing about Arsenal’s attack at present – especially while the fixtures remain iffy.

VARDY RETURNS

Back from a brief lay-off with a calf problem, Vardy emerged for the final half an hour of yesterday’s game and continued his fine run of form against the Gunners: this was his 11th goal in 12 meetings with the red half of north London.

The veteran striker nodded in Cengiz Under‘s (£5.9m) square ball after a superb, defence-splitting pass from Youri Tielemans (£6.4m) had set the Turkish winger free of the Arsenal defence.

Vardy was later denied a second goal when Bernd Leno (£5.0m) saved his one-on-one effort in stoppage time.

All six of the striker’s goals have come on the road this season (four from the spot, of course) and it is Leeds away next up for the Foxes, who have looked more comfortable on the break at Manchester City and Arsenal than they have on the front foot in their last two outings at the King Power Stadium.

Vardy said of his comeback:

Me and the manager spoke yesterday and that was always the plan because I’m coming back from a little niggle. You don’t want to be chucked straight in, it’s about feeling your way back into it.

It was probably going to be the last 20 minutes or half an hour and that’s what has happened, and luckily I came on and made an impact and we can take three points home.

Harvey Barnes (£7.0m) had begun the game as an “out of position” centre-forward in Rodgers’ striker-less set-up, getting little joy from the Arsenal backline before his 74th-minute withdrawal.

Explaining his decision to omit Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.7m), Rodgers says:

Iheanacho can hold the ball, but I didn’t feel we needed that, so Harvey was there to stretch the game. The idea was always to bring Jamie on. Him and Cengo [Under] came on and Marc [Albrighton] made a valuable contribution too.


Arsenal XI (4-3-3): Leno; Bellerin, Luiz (Mustafi 49′), Gabriel, Tierney; Ceballos, Xhaka, Partey; Saka (Pepe 65′), Lacazette, Aubameyang. 

Leicester City XI (3-4-3): Schmeichel; Fofana, Evans, Fuchs; Castagne, Tielemans, Mendy, Justin; Praet (Vardy 59′), Barnes (Under 74′), Maddison (Albrighton 81′).

    Would you stick or twist? 2 FTs.

    KDB (shu) > Grealish (SOU) /Zaha (wol)
    Mitro (WBA) > Kane (BRI)

    Feels like blasphemy selling Kev but City haven't been banging them in, and I've been too slow to get on the Kane train.

    Cheers

    1. Cowboy John
      • 8 Years

      Twist.

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Twist with Grealish.

    3. Jimbo-Jones
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Yep both good moves.
      Prefer Zaha or Grealish?

      Zaha better short term fixtures, and OOP.
      Grealish better long term fixtures and creating double the chances...

  3. COK3Y5MURF

    Chances of James starting next week? Tempted to keep him just in case

  4. sminkypinky

    It’s come to the point in this season I’m looking forward to bringing in Lookman and convinced he’ll turn my season around!

    Hah!

    1. Free Hat
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Something to look forward too

  5. Granville
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 11 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    Grealish v Zaha

    Which one?

    1. sully29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      50/50, so I've gone for Grealish as he's more fun to watch.

    2. Cowboy John
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Zaha.

    3. Schwarzer
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Leaning towards Grealish, has looked so dangerous. Zaha decent too, don't feel the "trap" calls of yesteryear are as warranted this time.

    4. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Zaha

    5. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Both. Zaha if you can't.

    6. Captain Vantastic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Zaha

    7. DAZZ
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Grealish

    8. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Grealish.

      Villa's fixtures largely a sea of blue up to GW25, whereas Palace's get ropey from GW14.

      Villa have scored 50% more goals than Palace so far with one game less.

      1. FPL_trail_runner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        28 days, 19 hours ago

        I still dont get ( and have been saying this for weeks) that Villas fixtures are 'that' nice

        I can easily see them struggling at both ends of the park for weeks to come. Could easily lose 4/6 and struggle to score more than 1 in most of those games.

        Soton, West ham, Wolves, Arsenal are all games where they could both lose and fail to score more than 1.

        Time will tell

        1. Phil's Stamps
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          28 days, 18 hours ago

          Who knows, but

          "Soton, West ham, Wolves, Arsenal are all games where they could both lose and fail to score more than 1."

          you could be talking about 90% of teams in the Premier League the way the season is going so far.

          It depends how much faith you place in fixtures. Villa have 50% less red fixtures than Palace up to GW25. Villa have scored 50% more goals than Palace having played one game less. These are facts, not opinions.

    9. DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      I want both.

    10. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Has to be both

    11. FPL_trail_runner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Neither.

      Zaha still plays for Crystal palace , who are a terrible attacking team with low xG consistently. Fulham data is not reliable

      Grealish plays for Villa, the most over performing attack and team in the league based on undelying data

      Id much rather and will be trying to get Foden in that price bracket for the city fixture swing.

      1. Granville
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        28 days, 19 hours ago

        I am considering Foden but need to see some form plus he was dropped last game.

    12. Granville
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      I'm going Grealish. His stats are better and has the better fixture this week.

  6. Oooo Matron
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    Best striker for next week 6.5 & under?

    Adams?

    1. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Antonio

      1. Flynny
        • 5 Years
        28 days, 19 hours ago

        Antonio may be injured

  7. sully29
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    I'm sure it's old news here but Aguero reportedly being out for a month is bad news for City. They really need that proper #9.

    1. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Was already thinking of removing Sterling, this news more or less confirms it.

  8. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    Goals scored this season

    Man City - 8
    Arsenal - 8
    Son - 8

  9. Coys96
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    1) Pulisic out
    2) James out (Lamptey starts otherwise)
    3) Both (-4)
    4) Save FT

    1. Schwarzer
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      4

    2. sully29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Which James?

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 19 hours ago

        Reece

        1. sully29
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          28 days, 19 hours ago

          I don't see any reason to keep him unless Azpi gets injured. He's not going to suddenly become nailed.

    3. Wılly
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Why Pulisic out?

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 19 hours ago

        Hasn't looked great. Dont fancy Chelsea, goals will be shared. Feel Burnley & Sheff utd will be tough games

    4. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      I'd do both tbh

      1. Flynny
        • 5 Years
        28 days, 19 hours ago

        lose reece

  10. Stupendous
    • 8 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    Time to admit I was wrong?

    Pulisic to Zaha for free and bank the change?

    1. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Anyone?

    2. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      I'd keep Pulisic.
      Scored a hatty in this fixture last season and Chelsea have a good run of games coming up.

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        28 days, 19 hours ago

        He's just not getting in the positions that Havertz is and seems to be out of sort still.

    3. DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Yes

  11. Wılly
    • 7 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    Bale to Zaha.
    Leaves enough ITB for Son to KDB in a few weeks?

    Probably better if I wait until the end of the week, if I'm priced out I can find another option.

    1. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Yes but wouldn’t be doing that second transfer

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      I was planning on bringing in Aguero and KDB for Kane and Son GW10, but I'm not sure I'll be able to if the Spurs' boys keep it up.

  12. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    Worth a -8 to sort this mess out?

    Maupay + Sterling + TAA> Kane + Son + Dallas.

    Martinez Steer
    TAA Robbo Konsa Mitchell Johnson
    Salah Sterling Hamez Pereira Anguissa
    Ings DCL Maupay

    Alternative is TAA + Pereira > Kilman + Son

  13. Wılly
    • 7 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    Best options under 9.5?

    Not including Son, Pulisic, or Hamez

    1. Esalman
      • 11 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Rashford

    2. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Ings

    3. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Zaha and Grealish

  14. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    What to do? Podence Taylor (maybe) Robbo seem the main issues rn. 1FT 1.2 ITB 🙂

    Martinez (Steer)
    Robbo Saiss Lamptey (Taylor Mitchell)
    Salah Son Havertz JRodriguez Podence
    Kane DCL (Davis)

    1. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Save FT or remove Havertz

    2. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Keep Podence for Palace.

      Havertz out

    3. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Not a fire but would look to ship out Taylor and keep an eye on Saiss and Mitchell.

  15. Hryszko
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    Any fires to put out here?

    Martinez (Steer)
    Trent - Saiss - Taylor (Lamptey & Dallas)
    Salah - Son - Zaha - Podence (Burke)
    DCL - Jimmy - Kane

    0.6m ITB, 1FT.

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      As a Podence owner, I’m getting twitchy with him

      1. Hryszko
        • 3 Years

        I am also getting twitchy.. just not many options at that price!

    • 11 Years

    Jimenez replacement (after Palace)

    Werner, Jesus or hope Antonio can stay fit?

    1. The Littlest Robbo
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Antonio

    2. sully29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Antonio. I've been planning the Jimenez > Antonio move for weeks at this point, I'll feel stupid if I back out of it and he does as well as I thought he would.

      Plus I could do a lot with the money difference between Antonio and the likes of Werner/Jesus.

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        28 days, 19 hours ago

        Bit worried about Moyes keep playing him and not letting Antonio fully recover from his injury.

      2. HollywoodXI
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        28 days, 19 hours ago

        Rumour is that Antonio’s injury is worse than first feared.

  17. GE
    • 4 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    Have 2FT.
    Grealish and Bissouma (bench player) -> Zaha and Riedewald (bench player).

    Current bench: Button, Mitchell, Dallas, Bissouma

    1. RealSocialDads
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Not a fan of grealish to Zaha switch personally, best to stick with your guns

  18. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    After today's performance how are you going to treat Son-Kane after gw8?
    I'm an owner of both Kane and Son and I was planning to keep them both. Now I'm thinking again maybe I will keep Son only but it's close...

  19. RealSocialDads
    • 4 Years
    28 days, 19 hours ago

    TAA + Sterling + Mitro -> Chilwell + Grealish + Kane for a hit.

    Yay or nay?

    1. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      I like those moves personally

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Good moves, imo.

      1. RealSocialDads
        • 4 Years
        28 days, 19 hours ago

        Thanks both, weighing up Grealish or Zaha but leaning towards Jack

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          28 days, 19 hours ago

          I’ve got Grealish and Kane, and have brought in Chilwell this week.

          Will be watching Villa next game to see how they respond to the Leeds defeat. We need a Villa pen to see if Grealish takes it too!

    3. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Great moves.

    4. danieltbl21
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 18 hours ago

      On a similar boat but considering Zaha (already got Grealish).

      But feel a it weird selling Mitro against WBA (H)

  20. Corona is not good 4 U
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Best two defenders for 9.2?

        Depends who you have in your team already but a selection of the following:

        Dallas
        Ayling
        KWP
        Konsa

    • Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Martinez Steer
      TAA Chilwell Saiss Lamptey Mitchell
      Salah Sterling Son Foden Podence
      Jimenez DCL Brewster
      2ft. 0.3 itb.
      Not sure who to lose since TAA and Sterling have good fixture. Maybe Saiss to Kilman for cash?

        I have similar team to you, been keeping players in cos of their good fixtures for too long so taking both Trent and Sterling out this week

    • Dele
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Dunne, Sterling, Soucek >>> Chilwell, Zaha, Grealish for a -4?

      Yay or nay?

      1 blank in 6 GWs and people start shipping DCL. Got to love FPL!

        No Digne, No Richa and Sirgudsson stealing James corners and free kicks could take down DCL strike.

      That Bamford to Aguero for a -4 has to be one of the worst transfers I ever made in fpl ever.
      Aguero now injured so any suggestions for replacements?

        Kane, Ings, or wait one week for Antonio if fit.

          I haven't enough for Kane. Ings could be a good call very consistent. Thanks.

      1FT for next week- bank the transfer? Plan was to take ings out this week a move to a 3-5-2.... buutttt he just keeps scoring so I’m really happy with him. finally really happy with my team in general

      Only thing I need to upgrade is my defence- but not 100% sure where the value is gonna be found right now- so gonna wait a few more weeks till we get some Ingo- maybe wolves and West Ham for the longer term- and whether to take Trent out of not- tough decisions

      Martinez
      TAA / KWP / Lamptey
      Salah / Son / Zaha / Grealish
      Kane / DCL / Ings

      Button, Taylor, Michell, Stephens.

        Yeah, hold that

    • Ibralicious
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      There are so many people on here that ended up with 46 this GW that I'm convinced we all own the same teams 😀

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee

        I’m on 38. Yay

          Same here. Same team as me then

        Id love 46

      Is Masuaku nailed? Need a 4.5 def from GW8. Would be fuming if West Ham started going 4231 with Cresswell left back?

      1. Hansel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        28 days, 19 hours ago

        Why would they change though?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Probably no reason to

    • PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      What to do here?

      A) Jimi > Kane (free)

      B) TAA + Maupay > KWP + Kane (-4) plus 1m to spare

      1FT 2.5 ITB
      Martinez
      TAA Saiss Justin
      Salah Son Bruno Podence
      Jimi DCL Maupay

      Steer Struijk Mitchell Reed

      Thanks!

      (Would like to upgrade Podence but Kane is the priority)

      1. Coys96

        B but Dallas

        There are better options IMO for a 4.5 defender

        Targett Dallas Ayling Coufal Kilman to name a few

    • FPL Kaka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Is Jimmy worth holding on for the Palace game?

        28 days, 19 hours ago

        Unless you have nothing better to do. Wolves suck but he does have a knack for grabbing a goal.

        Yes

            Bamford was on my bench as 1st sub & stayed there 🙁
