Tight calf for absent Aubameyang as Everton host Arsenal

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.4m) is absent for Arsenal as they travel to Everton in Gameweek 14.

The Fantasy Premier League midfielder misses out due to a tight calf, replaced in the starting line-up by Eddie Nketiah (£5.5m).

Willian (£7.6m) and Nicolas Pépé (£7.6m) flank the former Leeds loanee, as Mikel Arteta continues with 3-4-3, despite the return of Hector Bellerín (£5.1m) on the bench, whose suspension triggered the return to that shape last time out.

Bukayo Saka (£5.2m) and Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£4.6m) are the wing-backs with Kieran Tierney (£5.3m), David Luiz (£5.4m) and Rob Holding (£4.4m) the three-man defence.

Everton make an enforced change of their own, Tom Davies (£5.2m) coming in for Allan (£5.3m). André Gomes (£5.4m) might have claimed the Brazilian’s place had he not sustained an injury of his own in the build-up to Gameweek 14.

Having collected two clean sheets in the last two matches, Carlo Ancelotti retains faith with Ben Godfrey (£5.0m) and Mason Holgate (£4.8m) at full-back although Robin Olsen (£4.5m) drops back to the bench for Jordan Pickford (£4.8m) to start in goal once again.

Everton XI: Pickford; Godfrey, Mina, Keane, Holgate; Sigurdsson, T Davies, Doucouré; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Iwobi.

Arsenal XI: Leno; Tierney, D Luiz, Holding; Saka, Elneny, Ceballos, Maitland-Niles; Willian, Nketiah, Pépé.

          Replace 25 and 26 with 15 and 16

      Risky moves! Who comes in?

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        2 months, 11 days ago

        After this GW mate. Looking at this;

        McCarthy, 4.0
        Robbo, James, Dias, Dier, Taylor
        Salah, Bruno, Son, Grealish, Soucek
        DCL, Bamford, Adams

        But DCL might go now too

      Selling KDB before Newcastle at home?

      Points explosion is just around the corner

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Nope. 16

  2. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left

    Ffs what was he even booked for

    1. Africa United
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Wasting time

    2. Bram
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Time wasting

    3. JIMMY764
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      For not leaving the pitch quick enough when subbed, even though his number didn’t go up.

    4. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      It was really 1/2 richarlisons lol

  3. MoSalalalalalalalalah
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Think I made a good move getting rid of DCL & TAA and bringing in Kane & Taor for this GW.

    1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Taylor*

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      TAA scored 9 points pal.

      1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Yeah but in the grand scheme of things. It's his first points return since GW3

        1. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          I’d be gutted

        2. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          In the grand scheme of things, he has some good fixtures coming up.

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            West brom too.. yikes

          2. MoSalalalalalalalalah
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            As do Kane and Taylor

            1. Hazz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

              You can't call it a good move when when TAA & DCL both returned whilst Kane & Taylor haven't even played.

    3. Zilla
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Both returned

    4. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Getting rid of TAA now with the fixtures . I wouldn't call it a good move personally

      1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Feel like it was a question of whether Kane or TAA would get me more. Kane clear answer so far this season

  4. Skloppy Kops
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Arteta out?

    1. MoeZe3bi
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      The question that repeats itself every week

    2. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Was feeling optimistic after the FA Cup win and what looked like a decent summer, but... there's something really rotten in this team.

      I think he's lost the dressing room. The players either aren't playing for him or his tactics are utterly sterile. Either way a change seems inevitable, may as well do it before Jan transfer window.

    3. ClassiX
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Pochettino in?

  5. The Suspended One
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Carlo for manager of the year

  6. MoeZe3bi
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Sorry for reposting, but my comment got bottomed.

    Who do you think is the best midfielder under 8.0? Is it still Grealish/Zaha given their not so appealing run of fixtures?

    1. JohnnyRev7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Link your team, repost and then you'll get a response. Otherwise we're all guesing blind.

    2. ClassiX

      Ward-prowse, Bowen and Neto if you want a real differential. Leaves change, too.

        At least his team was watchable

  8. pundit of punts
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Thinking Lamptey > Dier this gw giving me

    Martinez
    Dias - Dier - KWP
    Salah - KDB - Bruno - Grealish - Son
    Wilson - Bamford

    Button - Taylor - Mitchell - Davis

    Have 2 FT and 0.9m in the bank. Thoughts? 🙂

    1. MoeZe3bi
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      How about some Creswell action?

      1. MoeZe3bi
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Cresswell*

    If only the teams below Arsenal were a little bit better. Arsenal would surely get relegated

  10. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Took a risk and sold DCL & KDB this week.
    Hope Kane & Grealish get the job done.

    Dcl to Martial 1 gw punt could be GOLD

    1. ALI_G
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      yeah until you find you have to pay 7.9m to get DCL back who you bought for 7.0m in the first place...

      1. Party time
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        I bought him for 7.8, I don’t mind getting him back for 7.9. Upside chasing imo. Let’s see Martial tomorrow

    To all of the smug non-Salah owners who were belly laughing when Salah was benched as they predicted : how does it feel to get royally burned?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      They won’t see this, they’ll be hibernating now for a while

      A 5 hour late burn. Searing.

    3. Arlo2103
        2 months, 11 days ago

        I took a 4 point hit to swap mane for salah and was ready to end it all until the little magician came on

    4. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years

      23 from 3, good start?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Salah, McCarthy & DCL for me

      3. BeWater
          2 months, 11 days ago

          I'm on the same. Salah, Adams, KDB.

        Should I transfer DCL,Grealish, Chilwell to Kane,Soucheck,Stones??

        1. MoeZe3bi
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Stones may get rotated any given time

      5. Party time

        2 months, 11 days ago

        I think United will score 5 goals tomorrow. Leeds defence is trash

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

              Good game. Over 6.5 goals should pay well!
