Arsenal’s FPL defenders offering greater value than attackers this season

Man United 0-1 Arsenal

  • Goals: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.7m)
  • Assists: Hector Bellerin (£5.0m)
  • Bonus Points: Bellerin x3, Gabriel x2 (£5.1m), Aubameyang x1

A penalty from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.7m) was enough for Arsenal to win a dour match at Manchester United that even a mythical football purist would have struggled to enjoy.

The Gabon international’s spot-kick, earned when Paul Pogba (£7.8m) fouled Hector Bellerín (£5.0m), handed the Gunners their first league win at Old Trafford in 14 years.

It also extended United’s winless run at home to four league games this season in a match that was heavy on the footballing history but light on pretty much everything else.

Gunner Be Tighter

It is a mark of this topsy-turvy season that Liverpool (15) have conceded the most goals and Arsenal (seven) the least.

Under Mikel Arteta, the Gunners are clearly much harder to beat. They are also much harder to love, especially in Fantasy terms.

Despite that impressive defensive stat, Sunday’s win was only their second clean sheet of the campaign, making it tricky for Fantasy Premier League managers to rely on a backline that’s clearly solid, just not solid enough.

But when they do shut down the opposition, the bonus point credentials of centre-half Gabriel (£5.1m) shine very brightly indeed. He earned his 11.4% ownership two extra points on Sunday.

All this defensive goodness has come during a tough opening run for the Gunners – they’ve faced Liverpool, both Manchester clubs and Leicester over the last five Gameweeks.

If they can kick on as their schedule eases, the returning Rob Holding (£4.4m) looks a potential bargain if he stays fit and in favour.

Arteta has already switched between a four and a five at the back this campaign, heightening the appeal of the team’s centre-halves.

Boring, Boring Arsenal

It is much harder to big up Arsenal’s attacking assets though.

Aubameyang is a great case in point. Boosted by his newly-acquired FPL status as a midfielder, he was owned by three million managers at the start of the season.

Six games, one goal and an assist later, his eight-point return at Old Trafford – his best score this campaign – was enjoyed by just over a million Fantasy bosses.

At least Aubameyang had something to show for his work, thanks to his penalty-taking responsibilities. 

Lone striker Alexandre Lacazette (£8.4m) had a miserable afternoon involving one penalty area touch and no shots, although he did lead the way – alongside Luke Shaw (£4.9m) – for chances created, with two.

With Aston Villa and Leeds up next for the Gunners, the prospect of goals looks good. But who’s going to score them?

United We Stand (Down)

As for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, the return of Anthony Martial (£8.7m) from suspension probably cannot come soon enough.

Since he was dismissed against Spurs, United have fallen apart in that Tottenham debacle, left it very late to beat Newcastle and have now emerged goalless and with one point from home games against Chelsea and Arsenal.

The United coach started with a diamond formation on Sunday, with Mason Greenwood (£7.2m) nominally playing up front alongside Marcus Rashford (£9.6m).

It was a move that Arteta referenced post-match.

“They played a really tricky formation with four midfielders and two that constantly strain your back four.” – Mikel Arteta

Whereas Solskjaer was rather less enthused by his own master plan.

“The formation is down to the opposition. It depends on the team you play against and how you execute that shape yourself. Of course, today we were too sloppy, too many passes went astray and the rotations weren’t there. Too many things can go wrong in a game of football that maybe went wrong for us.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Greenwood did at least work Bernd Leno (£5.0m) – one of three (regulation) saves for the Arsenal keeper.

But it was a mark of United’s toothlessness that Rashford had just three touches, and no shots, in the box.

In fact, the team’s major offensive weapon ended up being Harry Maguire (£5.4m), whose aerial threat led to a match-leading four attempts and five touches in the penalty area as United hoped for the best from a series of corners and crosses.

The best never came and the hope is currently drifting away.

United now have a mixed bag (eve WBA sou whu) to find some of both before Gameweek 12’s Manchester derby.

Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred (Matic 62); Pogba, Fernandes (van de Beek 75), Greenwood (Cavani 75); Rashford. 

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Elneny, Partey; Saka, Willian (Maitland-Niles 86), Aubameyang (Mustafi 87); Lacazette (Nketiah 76).

    Just a few of questions..

    Do we reckon Mendy would be a good replacement for Pickford? Or maybe Pickford will start the next games?

    Has Saiss been dropped or rested?

    Cheers

    1. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      You shouldnt own Pickford. Get straight on Mendy and don’t look back.

      1. The King
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Haha thanks I might have kept him a bit too long, do you reckon Kepa will retain his place after injury though?

        1. FPL.team
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Kepa has no place at Chelsea to regain.

    2. Reeker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Even if Pickford starts next game, still expect Olsen to get minutes every so often after Ancelotti's comments. So drop him.

    3. The King
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Thanks for the comments, I've got 2ft and very happy with my current points so I'm in no rush to make any changes tonight so I'll have a think on it

  2. Stimps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    If Ings is out, thoughts?

    Ings, Saiss -> Vardy, Coufal (-4)

    1. Labile
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      I like

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Good moves.

  3. AD2110
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Bellerin or Lamptey?

    Rest of defence is:
    Robbo, Chilwell, Coufal, Mitchell

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Lamptey.

  4. OneMan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    What are people doing with Son before GW9 ?

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Holding, he can get returns against anyone.

      1. OneMan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        But isn't that what we were saying about Abamayang too ? I'm nervous.

        1. Black Knights
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Son scored 4 at old Trafford.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            That was Saints, brace and an assist at OT

            1. Black Knights
              • 9 Years
              4 months, 1 day ago

              Ah yeah. I get lost in all the points he’s got me 🙂

              Still, hauling at OT suggests it could happen elsewhere.

        2. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Who is "we"? Most people sold Auba after GW2.

      2. nico05
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Agreed

  5. Phil's Stamps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Bench one:

    1. Coufal (FUL)
    2. Lamptey (BUR)
    3. Robertson (mci)
    4. Bamford (cry)

    Edging towards Bamford but main rival in this week's H2H has him.

    1. Labile
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Robertson tbh

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      4

    3. Reeker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Robertson

      1. Reeker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        I don't expect a clean sheet and you can't tell me he's more likely to get attacking points than Bamford.

        1. Phil's Stamps
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          That is a very shrewd analysis, thanks.

    4. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Thanks all, yeah Robbo seems the one in my situation but it feels so wrong. Lamptey & Jrod still flagged though, so it may resolve itself.

    5. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      I agree - 4

    6. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      2

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        No sorry, reluctantly 3

    7. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      4

  6. Reeker
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Who to bench out of Dallas, Semedo and Robertson?

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Probably Semedo for me.

  7. JJeyy
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Rashford or Zaha?

    1. Labile
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Sir Marcus Rashford

    2. Reeker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Rashford

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Martial is back so Rashford, they play well together

    4. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Rashford

  8. Labile
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    I know these never ever work but thoughts?

    GW 8= Ings + Pulisic ➡️ Vardy and Ziyech
    GW 9= Kane and Maupay ➡️ Martial and Adams
    GW 10= Saïss and Ziyech ➡️ KDB and Kilman

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      I think you need to see yourself actually doing something before you bring yourself in, Tony. The rest looks fine, although i wouldn't lose Kane if he's still scoring.

    2. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Why take a hit every week?

      1. stu92
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah that makes no sense.

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Ziyech for only 2 weeks? No for me

      1. Labile
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Thnx all haha

  9. Zim0
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    So leeds. What happened

    1. JJeyy
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Bamford happened.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Newly promoted side

    3. DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Couldn't handle Leicester's pace up front.

    4. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Some teams are well suited to exploit Leeds' weaknesses. Leicester are one of those.

  10. nico05
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I know its early for this but could anyone point me to the areas I should be addressing please?
    Mcarthy
    TAA Justin Lascelles Reguilon (mitchell)
    Salah Bruno Son Grealish (oirol romeu)
    Jimi Mitro (davies)
    2 free transfers & 3 million to spend. Thank you in advance 🙂

    1. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Up front could improve I think, Jimi to Werner and Mitro to DCL?

      1. nico05
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        very interesting suggestion I never even considered that I have the funds to make that switch too

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Davies > Wilson, Lascelles > Coufal

      1. nico05
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        davies is a complete fodder was just looking at ditching mitro

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Mitro > Wilson then

          1. nico05
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            Not a bad shout actually would you just roll the other transfer this week after that move? Thanks again

            1. Magic Zico
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              4 months, 1 day ago

              Are you happy with Lascelles? WHU fixtures are good and they have been defensively improved: Lascelles > Coufal. Jimi to go next week ...

              1. nico05
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                4 months, 1 day ago

                No I regret picking Lacelles too. So you'd recomend Mitro-Wilson Lascelles - Coufa & address Jimi next week with what would then be 10.7 mil to spend on a replacement?
                Thank you again for your input

    3. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Jiminez to Kane and captain? Chilwell or Zouma?

      1. nico05
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Cheers guys I was thinking attack was a very weak point but was unsure which way to address it

      2. nico05
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        I like the sound of jimi - kane juts mitro's fixtures turn bad shortly

  11. Niho992
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    If you're WC in GW 9 what would you do with Spurs assets ? How to fit City players, United have great fixtures from GW 9 also..

    1. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Not wildcarding, but planning on downgrading Kane to free up KDB cash.

      1. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        when ?

        1. stu92
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Either GW9 or 10 when the fixtures turn.

          1. Niho992
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            It's GW 10 then. Cheers.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              4 months, 1 day ago

              I might go in GW9 tbh, depends on whether I would rather have KDB or Kane in the Spurs - City game.

              1. Niho992
                • 2 Years
                4 months, 1 day ago

                I would rather have Spurs players in that game tbf.

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      I am going to gamble and go with no United GW9, that team is a mess and WBA is the only standout fixture, the others are average.

      With City I only want KDB at the mo and can get him by essentially downgrading Robbo and upgrading Jrod. I'm going to hold Son & Kane until I see evidence of City clicking and/or Spurs dropping off. Even then I'll probably hold Son because he's such good value (possible placeholder for Fernandes too) and just swap Kane for Aguero.

  12. stu92

    G2G?

    Martinez / 4.0
    Robbo / Zouma / Kilman / Lamptey / Targett
    Salah / Son / KDB / Hamez / Soucek
    DCL / Adams / Wilson

  13. Gentle_Turks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Think Kilman is now nailed and Saiss lost his place? Or could there be rotation between them?

    best defenders to have in the coming fixtures:

    choose 2

    A) chilwell
    B) coufal
    C) cresswell
    D) bellerin

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Chilwell, Coufal.

      1. Reeker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        I second this

        1. Phil's Stamps
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Thirded.

    2. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 1 day ago

      I like the look of Bellerín but Arsenal fixtures coming up aren’t great defensively.

      A as priority, B or D depending how much you rate Arsenal defence.

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      AC

    McCarthy
    TAA Robbo Lewis
    Salah son jrod Barkley
    Mitro Jimenez maupay

    Steer Podence Taylor Ferguson

    2.8itb and 2ft

    Where to even start with this. Whos priority for out and in?

    Any suggestions welcome.

    1. That Was Easy!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Bit of a mess like mine below...Wolves and double Pool defense the ones to fix. Jimmy can always score, Podence is 5.5 so I think you can hold for me, so I'd look at getting one of the Pool defenders out. Could do TAA+Maupay > Kane + Zouma.

      I'd wait to see if we hear any more about Maupay though.

      1. FPLMACKEM
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah im waiting on Maupay. I think it could potentially turn into a positive if he starts v Burnley as he will be fired up.

        Mitrovic was always my priority to move on this week. Possibly for Wilson/Bamford.

        Im still undecided what im doing with my double liverpool defence.

        Jimenez to Kane is also in my thoughts but not sure its worth it for 1 good fixture when im already captaining Son

  18. That Was Easy!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    TAA + Jimmy > Zouma + Kane (C) (Vardy the next week) for a -4?

    Ryan
    Robbo Taa Mitchell

      Are you definitely breaking up your double liverpool defence and moving on TAA? A Chelsea defender is very appealing.

      Jota looks a waste to me. Keep it in bank to upgrade Zaha later

      1. adidasOriginals
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Surely Jota will get a run, he's looked ace.

    Best pick to replace Jimenez?
    a)Dcl
    b)Wilson
    c)Antonio(if he is fit)

    1. Major League Shocker

      I'd still say A if Rodriguez is fit, Everton still have good fixtures through GW11.

    James and Bale, both will do wonders in PL this season
    Just shows you that Zidane is a sh*tty manager and even a sh*ttier person.

    Martinez
    Chilwell / Zouma / Justin
    Salah / Son / James Rodriguez / Grealish
    Kane / Calvert-Lewin / Bamford

    Out: Bamford
    In: Vardy

    Yes or no? 🙂

    1. pjanns
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      If you have the funds sure.

      But Bamford could easily have scored today..

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Yes

  25. pjanns
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Anything for now you would change?

    Mendy
    Holding - Justin - Chilwill
    Salah - Fernandes - Son - Hamez
    Vardy - Wilson - DCL

    (Button - Bissouma - Taylor - Ferguson)

    Pondering on:
    Hamez --> Ziyech.

    But will probably wait a bit more.

    What to do with Barnes now? Could he loose his place, under playing well. Keep for another couple of games or get rid? 2.9m itb

    1. LarryDuff

      1. Skogen89
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 23 hours ago

        Salah, grealish, son, burke

        If i save, i have two ft for gw 10

  27. Wag the Drog
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    On a wildcard. Better options long term?
    a) Son, Vardy, Chillwell
    b) KDB, DCL, Zouma

    1. Wag the Drog
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Sorry switch Chillwell and Zouma

      1. nico05
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Thats a tougher call id sway towards b now ... I think

    2. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      A

      1. Wag the Drog
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        With Zouma over Chillwell? Also have Kane too

    3. pjanns
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Would go a.

      But it's a toin coss imo.

    4. Fantabulous KdB
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      A now, then switch to KdB after GW9

    What City assets are ppl bring in after next GW ?

    Is Foden worth considering ?

    1. Matsy123
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Tempted to go double city defence on gw10 wildcard with de bruyne as the triple up

      1. OneMan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        I'm going Laporte anyway. Which other defender are you considering ?

        1. Matsy123
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          I think dias is most nailed of back five apart from ederson obviously he seems to have right centre back to himself. Walker and cancelo both looked good though but if mendy will be fit a bit of a spanner in the works

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      I was on Foden but think after consecutive benchings it's too much of a risk. Cancelo/Laporte is an option but in my case I'd have to lose Chillwell and I don't like losing decent nailed players for rotation risks, fixtures regardless. It's likely I'll go into GW10 with just KDB but if Kun starts firing swap Kane for him.

      1. OneMan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        What about Dias ?

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Cancelo if keeps place otherwise Dias -and Sterling

  29. The Frenchie
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Martinez
    Chilwell / Zouma / Justin
    Salah / Son / James Rodriguez / Grealish
    Kane / Calvert-Lewin / Bamford

    A) Out: Bamford / In: Vardy
    B) Out: James / In: Bruno Fernandes
    C) Out: James / In: De Bruyne

  30. Fantabulous KdB
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Best defenders to get on a WC?

    Premium front - Salah, Kane, Son
    mid price - Grealish, Ziyech, DCL
    Defender - Chilwell, Coufal, Killman, who else?
