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′).

      b, maybe get a villa def?

      1. Jinswick
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Would have to be Targett/Havertz or Konsa/Pulisic. Tricky to know who is THE Chelsea player to have. Chilwell as a wing back and on set pieces is pretty tempting...with Kun out I may stick with Foden for a bit, or even get Chilwell now and do Foden -> Zaha later

    2. Poison Apple

      I would replace holding since its still unclear on mitchell.

      Like the chilwell option but not sure how sold r u on having a chelsea mf.

        Not totally sold on a CHE attacker - mainly because I’m not sure who is the best one to get!

      It's not so often to see a team without Evertonset. It's probably good to save unless he is close to price drop.

      B to Zaha (amazing fixtures after wolves)

  3. Nightrain_

    With a disappointing return of Lamptey, am thinking of shipping him out and got the exact fund to buy Chilwell, but anybody think that Zouma at 5.1 is better value ? I'm seeing a great keypass on Chilwell but Zouma's header threat is exceptional and I can bank the 0.7 difference for future use

    With Mendy as keeper, they already recorded 3 clean sheets, so thinking that if they continue this trend, the holy trinity of Chilwell - Zouma - James (if he keep his spot) can replicate what Robbo - VVD - TAA offered years ago

    Thoughts ?

    1. WALOR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I'm getting Zouma

      1. Nightrain_
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        he's on my watchlist, probably gonna decide after UCL midweek
        I got Saiss and Mitchell.
        Do you think both of them will retain their spot ? Lamptey is surely a starter but the next 4 fixtures is tough for him so thinking he's the one to go

        Actually I'm planning to cut Burke off for Klich as their pen taker, but looks like the defense is more urgent ?

        What do you think mate ?

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Robbo VVD Taa plays for a good coach and have Allison behind saving their ass.

    3. Phil's Stamps

      Chillwell all day every day.

      1. Nightrain_
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Thanks mate
        will evaluate further after UCL but yes he's tempting and looks so attacking. Probably will buy him if he's fit after the midweek match

  4. Pavsboot

    Kind of tempted by Jimi & 4.5 def to Kane and Chillwell. Jimi is just such a hard player to get rid of. Seems like even with Wolves looking a bit meh offensively he'll keep ticking over on the way to 180 ish points.

    1. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I'd consider keeping Jimi for one more week (CRY), and then get Kane for WBA. And also you must have a bunch of available funds to make both of those moves? If so, just upgrade your defender now and bank the FT.

    Ryan still on 0 save pts

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      It's because of their playing style. Quality of chances they concede are good. So less # of saves.
      Unlike defenses who sit deep & ask opposition to take shots from outside of box like Burnley.

      Yesterday Johnstone & WBA did same. 6 saves for Johnstone

    2. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Today was the last game even remotely worth keeping Ryan for, and he flubbed it. He's a must-go at this point.

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Save points against an anemic team like WBA seem unlikely; but I don’t see clean sheets in their future.

        1. I Must Break You
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Agreed, and I wasn't insinuating that one should have kept him for save points against WBA, but rather if he were ever going to get a clean sheet, this would have been the match.
          The main point is that he now has 7 saves and 12 goals conceded. Those are Kepa-like numbers. There is absolutely no earthly reason for anyone to have Ryan on their roster anymore. Not sure if it's his fault, or BHA defense, or what. But it doesn't matter. Ship him immediately.

  6. Davros
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    What am I missing? Robbo and TAA are top of the watch list and Bamford isn’t on there at all?

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I never understand that and the RMT/projections. Thumbsuck.

      1. Captain Vantastic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Agreed 100 percent. RMT and the projections have been useless

      The 2 blanks didn't help.

  7. trafalgarlaw

    One of Barnes/Podence -> Zaha/Grealish/Rodriguez (-8) ?

    Salah Son Barnes Podence
    DCL Jimenez Kane

    1. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      One of them for -8?
      If you’ve already taken a hit this GW, I probably wouldn’t bother this week.
      Out of Barnes and Podence though, I’d get rid of Barnes. Podence has looked ok and in the action a fair bit and seems to narrowly miss out on returns. Just been a bit unlucky.

      1. trafalgarlaw
        • 1 Year

        thx mate, will do Barnes to Rodrigues next week maybe

              Kane plus consider PVA > Coufal as after next week West Ham fixtures look good.

      2. MOZIL

        1 month, 1 day ago

        whos more nailed? Dier or Alderweireld

        Anyone looking at Kane to Vardy GW10?
        Vardy has Fulham,Sheffield Utd.,Brighton and Everton. Covers perfectly for the period in which Kane has difficult fixtures and can swap back after that.
        I have my doubts about Leicester though

        1. Kabayan

          Jiminez gives you a solid 6-9 point return consistently , wolves dont look very good going forward because they dont try going forward lol

        2. seewhyaxe

        My team is looking great apart from podence and pickford what move would you make

        A)Sterling + podence > grealish + rashford -4
        B)pickford > mendy(or any other gk)

        1. Boberella

          B. Mendy looks great. Pickford not proving to be a good choice of GK

            It's the % a player is owned plus captaincy. If, say, Kane is owned by half the players in the game his ownership is 50%. If he is captained by 50% of those players in a gameweek his effective ownership would be 75%. If he was owned by everyone and captained by everyone his EO would be 200%.

                Jimi will get some inconsistent returns but wolves aren’t looking too hot. Ings is in a more attacking team and will score more points more consistently I believe.

                Cheers for comments. I have both but one of them has to go if I'm getting Kane.

                    Not if I also want Kane, can only get one

                Can you do Kane + Chilwell + decent mid? (Grealish/Zaha)

                1. The Head-Ake
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 1 day ago

                  Nope, only have 5.7 for a midfielder - best option then would be McGinn, not that keen tbf

                  1. Boberella
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 1 day ago

                    I think you need a solid defender if getting rid of TAA. Not keen on Mahrez and Werner out? Then it’s no hit and you can get a decent Mid.

              Is saving a FT the right move this GW? Looking to take 2 into GW8 so I can do Trent/Mitro > double Hammers.

                    I'm starting Guaita, Zaha, Saiss and Kilman. Mitchell will probably sub on. I'm also on a -4. Fearing the worst.

                Yes. Captain?

                Kindly start 2 from these options
                1) Semedo
                2) Saïss
                3) Dallas

                  Salah.
                  1 and 2. Coin toss between 2 and 3.

                    Sorry between 2 (Saiss) and 4 (Castagne). Dallas the weakest option

                      Hmmm. West ham are quite solid at the back & pool did not impress me in attack vs sheffield, I may go with the mexican sensation vs Palace for a Friday night fun.

                      Thanks! at the moment, I’ve got Semedo, Castagne & Trent in the starting xi. May just stick with that.

                      Cheers buddy

              My plan had always been to triple up on city from gw10 but are Kane and Son unsellable? City kick their ass in terms of fixture strength gw10-15 but once you've factored in transfers used to swap, Pep roulette and price rises I dunno if it's worth it. Tricky

                • 3 Years
                1 month, 1 day ago

                Easy switch for me on WC. Have to chase the upside and with those City fixtures it’s a no brainer

                1. Rhinos
                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 1 day ago

                  I like the idea on a wc but still wouldn't be surprised if spuds match them given Pep roulette

                  1 month, 1 day ago

                  going to double up on Sterling and Kdb for a few weeks. City have good fixtures all through GW 10-20

                  1. Rhinos
                    • 7 Years
                    1 month, 1 day ago

                    they do but I'd much rather have Kane and Son in the dgw's, Pep roulette will bite

                  Nobody is unsellable. I'm confident both will decline and the Manchester assets will take over. Have Foden and Sterling, looking at KDB, Fernandes and Rashford instead.

                    1 month, 1 day ago

                    They've been that good they can decline and still be great assets

                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      1 month, 1 day ago

                      Alternatively, the Manchester assets can be greater

                        they can yep. Be fun finding out who wins
