Aubameyang and Lacazette start together as Arsenal travel to West Brom

Mikel Arteta has named both his main strikers in the starting XI as Arsenal travel to face West Bromwich Albion.

It is just the second time since Gameweek 13 that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.4m) and Alexandre Lacazette (£8.2m) have featured from the beginning together as the Gunners look to make it three wins on the bounce.

Bukayo Saka (£5.2m) has been a catalyst in Arteta’s recent mini-revival and he keeps his place in midfield, overcoming the knock he sustained last time out.

The defensive set-up has fluctuated between a back-four and back-three of late and it is the former of those two Arteta has settled with tonight.

The one constant among those chopping and changing of systems is Rob Holding (£4.5m), who starts for the 10th time in 11 Premier League matches.

At the third time of asking, Pablo Marí (£4.4m) joins the Englishman at centre-back with David Luiz (£5.4m) named on the bench.

West Bromwich Albion assets are predictably unpopular these days, not a single outfield player sitting in more than 1%. of Fantasy squads.

2.4% own Sam Johnstone (£4.5m), who has 66 saves this season, the second-highest at the time of writing.

But, as ever, the most fashionable Baggies player is non-playing goalkeeper David Button (£4.0m), owned by 4.4% worldwide.

West Bromwich Albion XI: Johnstone; Furlong, Ajayi, Ivanovic, O’Shea; Sawyers; Diangana, Gallagher, M Phillips, M Pereira; C Robinson.

Arsenal XI: Leno; Tierney, Mari, Holding, Bellerín; Saka, Xhaka, Ceballos; Aubameyang, Lacazette, Smith Rowe.

  15. KGFC
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 28 days ago

    Can Arsenal just pepper WBA goal so that we can hope to get some Johnstone save points?

      • 8 Years
      9 months, 28 days ago

    Holding and Tierney shooting their load this week is better than next week when everyone has them on FH.

    1. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 28 days ago

      Oh that's what all that white stuff is

  20. Bring back Rafa
    • 2 Years

    Bit of a noob question but here we go...
    I initially bought Zouma for $5.1m and before last night he was $5.9m and I sold him for $5.5m before his price drop to $5.8m.
    Now, if I end up playing my Freehit this week, he will come back into my GW19 team, right?
    At what price would he be? Would I then sell him for $5.4m?

    1. JJO
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 28 days ago

      Yes

    2. djman102
      • 12 Years
      9 months, 28 days ago

      He'll come back with his current value and you'll have the corresponding SV. So if it stays the same, it would be 5.4
