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.

    Wilson and DCL blank and the day is perfect.

      DCL has already returned pal.

    2. Scholes Out Forever

      Dcl got an assist no?

        An “assist”

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

          Does he have an additional 3 points or is my game broken?

          1. Corned Beef Kelly Osbourne
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            He definitely had an assist. Some people are just dense

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

              Read your name out loud and tell me who is dense.

            • 7 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            “Assists” are worth the same as assists

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I’ve genuinely not had a single good fpl day this season

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

      Apologies didn't realise they gave the assist to DCL. Not watching the game.

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

        It was an own goal on a header which was significantly off target

  5. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Getting James instead of Cancelo or Dias looking like another goober of a decision

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

      Okay

  6. KAALI_DAAL

      My bench is the worst. I can bet.

      Hey guys, real noob question but I can't remember...

      Can you save up 2ft through a wildcard use?
      Got a WC to burn before the winter deadline and would save two FT given a choice.

      Thanks.

        One 1 after WC/FH.

        No. You’ll have one FT after..might sound crazy but don’t play it if you don’t need it.

        Someone replied saying he is fine?

    • MoeZe3bi
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Who do you think is the best midfielder under 8mil?
      Zaha and Grealish do not have appealing fixtures; are they still worth investing in?

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

      Thoughts on this WC? No Kane but like the rest. 2nd keeper would be nice for BB19 and also Coufal looks decent.

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

    • Trophé Mourinho
