The Arsenal players on the radar for Blank Gameweek 18 after West Brom win

West Bromwich Albion 0-4 Arsenal

  • Goals: Alexandre Lacazette (£8.2m) x2, Kieran Tierney (£5.5m), Bukayo Saka (£5.3m)
  • Assists: Emile Smith Rowe (£4.4m) x2, Rob Holding (£4.5m), Tierney
  • Bonus: Tierney x3, Lacazette x2, Holding x1

Arsenal brushed aside a hapless West Brom side that has now scored just once while conceding 13 times in the four league matches since Sam Allardyce took charge.

That keeps Baggies assets the wrong side of pointless, in so many senses, while Arsenal stars offer intriguing Fantasy possibilities in both the short and medium-term.

Lacca Boom

Gameweek 18’s seven fixtures are tempting managers to consider using their Free Hit chip, with the Gunners’ home match against Crystal Palace catching the eye.

The north London side have won three games on the bounce now, although their south London rivals are likely to show considerably more resistance than West Brom, having taken four points from the last six available, conceding just once along the way.

Alexandre Lacazette (£8.2m), who scored twice in four second-half minutes on Saturday, should be a strong bet to be a Free Hit striker for many.

He’s owned by just 4.6% of FPL managers and isn’t feeling huge regular transfer love despite four goals from his last three appearances, one of which was a 24-minute match-winning cameo at Brighton.

Midfield Magic

Instead, the Gameweek 18 money is going on Bukayo Saka (£5.3m), who was outstanding at West Brom, scoring his second goal in three matches.

The midfielder is currently the most-popular transfer in, with 100,000+ new managers.

But like most Arsenal assets, he’s still something of a differential, even if his 7.7% ownership figure is bettered by only Bernd Leno (£4.9m and 8.3%) among his team-mates.

Saka is providing a lot of bang for relatively little buck, with 27 points over the last three Gameweeks.

And so is Emile Smith Rowe (£4.4m), who set up two goals against the Baggies and is shaping up to be a team talisman.

He’s started the last three matches, producing three assists and helping the Gunners to three wins at exactly 6.0 points per match – no midfielder at that bargain bucket price can offer such a return.

For those on the tightest of budgets, Smith Rowe is a tempting prospect if he continues to hold down a starting spot.

Tierney Time

An understandably delighted Mikel Arteta reserved his biggest praise for defender Kieran Tierney (£5.3m), in part simply for being Scottish on a snowy night:

He’s got something special in his blood because we’re all wearing snoods, gloves and hats. He just goes out in his shorts and t-shirt! He is a joy to work with and I’m so happy for him with the goal he scored and everything he’s put in to be better every day towards the team and towards the club.

Tierney ended up with a match-leading four chances created and, with a second straight clean sheet under his belt as well, he produced a bumper 18-point haul for his 5.7% ownership.

The 6.3% on Hector Bellerin (£5.1m) were rather less well served as their man’s first-half booking persuaded Arteta to take him off after 53 minutes.

So while Tierney produced his first double-digit total of the season, the Spaniard brought in zero points.

Centre-half Rob Holding (£4.5m) also made it into double figures, thanks to an assist and one bonus point.

He’s put on over 100,000 new owners over Christmas and his price has moved up a notch as a result, but he’s still relatively cheap for a player who’s currently looking like a reliable starter in an improving backline.

Gunner Be Interesting

Free Hit or not, Arsenal players need monitoring.

After the visit of Palace, their fixtures are a mix of the good (Newcastle at home), the tough (Manchester United, also at home) and the harder to call (Southampton, Wolves and Aston Villa away, Leeds at The Emirates).

But the form of Lacazette, and the cut-price delights of Saka and co, should prompt investment, especially for those in need of a differential or two.

The Gunners could be further boosted by the return to fitness of Thomas Partey (£4.9m), with Arteta providing an injury update post-match:

Well, he hasn’t trained fully with us, but he has done most parts of training in the last few days. He’s feeling good and we will assess him if he needs another two or three sessions to see if he’s 100 per cent available to play [v Newcastle in the FA Cup].

Finding space in the midfield for a player of such quality will need to be achieved without upsetting a side that has clearly found some balance in his extended absence, of course.

As for West Brom, Allardyce continues to play the just-arrived card:

Another game gone by where we learn more about the players we have. We have learned an awful lot about what we can and cannot do.

‘Awful’ is the word and Fantasy managers learned that long ago – the only starter with anything approaching a vaguely significant ownership is keeper Sam Johnstone (£4.5m and 2.4%), who made eight stops against the Gunners to continue leading the way for saves in FPL, with 74.


West Bromwich Albion XI (4-1-4-1): Johnstone; Furlong, Ajayi, Ivanovic (Bartley 66), O’Shea; Sawyers; Diangana (Austin 45), Gallagher, M Phillips (Harper 81), M Pereira; C Robinson. 

Arsenal XI (4-3-3): Leno; Tierney, Mari, Holding, Bellerín (Maitland-Niles 54); Xhaka, Ceballos, Smith Rowe (Willock 77); Saka (Willian 71), Aubameyang, Lacazette.

          I checked the Southampton forum and they are pretty sure it's out

          Hi all. Happy new year!

          Would appriciate your opinions on this one.
          I wildcarded in GW16 to set up for FH18 and BB19. I really want KDB for his double in 19, but would mean loosing Son (value tied up).
          Does anyone see a sensible route to get KDB? Or would you change anything else? Zouma or/and DCL out?

          Martinez (McCarthy)
          Zouma, Cresswell, Coufal (Dias, Dallas)
          Salah, Son, Bruno, Soucek, Raphinia
          Bamford, Vardy (DCL)

          Thanks!

          1. Sean
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            Nah selling Son the best option by far

          2. mynameisq
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            I'm taking son out for kdb, we've all got value tied up in him but honestly it's overblown how much, and tbh he was underpriced anyway

          3. thegaffer82
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            I wouldn’t pay any mind to value tied up in Son. This a a key moment in the season & KDB looks nigh on essential for his run of games

              3 months, 15 days ago

              Cheers.
              Problem is that I'm 2.1m short of a straight swap from Son to KDB. Would need to downgrade elsewhere (Vardy or DCL and Zouma)

            • 8 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            Have Son, no easy route to KDB this week.
            Can get him for gw 19.
            What would you do?

            A. Son > KDB this week
            B. Son > KDB gw 19

            1. Sean
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 15 days ago

              Not worth a hit so B

            2. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 15 days ago

              B) looks fine as long as you are getting KDB for his double & after

                  You can if you downgrade AWB...

            Strong enough to beat rival?

            Are some of you planning on navigating both 18 and 19 without any chip?

            my FH19 draft team is no real major improvement to the one I could get with -4 hit and it looks already written my FH team would be outscored by my non-FH team.

            FH18 was never an option for me. I can head to 18 with 9 players.

            Question is: Will there be enough room in the next gameweeks to play FH, BB and TC ?

            I understand through Ben Crellin's work that there should be a major DGW26 and a BGW so this could indicate WC in 25, BB in 26, FH in 29 although this is right into the UCL rounds games for City and Liverpool which is not ideal for Bench boost.

            This could leave the TC chip to another possible DGW.
            Or... play the TC chip on GW19 on KDB or Salah? a bit nervous about playing the TC chip in January and Covid to be honest

            1. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 15 days ago

              It totally depends on your team. I could easily navigate both weeks (9 + Brewster for BGW & 10 DGWers + Kane for GW19) without using a chip.

              But may as well use one of my chips for this period. So I’ll use TC on either Salah, Bruno or KDB in GW19.

              Save WC, FH & BB for later doubles and blanks

              1. rnrd
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 15 days ago

                Safest TC strategy in 19 should be Salah as he already got covid but I kind of like the KDB punt.

                KDB (TC) - Salah (VTC) ?

                If KDB gets Covid + between the CRY and the Villa game well that's just the TC curse once again..

              I’m about the same position. Have 9 for 18 and a solid 11 in 19 full of DGwers + Son with an ok bench.
              Will TC in 19.

                I don't really like the bur fixture. Never felt comfortable captaining a player playing at burley. It generally is a very tight game. Spurs have always struggled there so as City. It generally is very narrow victories or draws

                  God I hope so, I’ll be over a ton this week if he does.

                  I’ll be happy with 10 points personally though

                        Unfortunately 0.2 short of that! Too much value tied up in DCL.

                      No. Too much faffing about.

                      Stones in for one week & then Cancelo in the week after. Not worth the hit IMO.

                    Currently have 11 for GW 18 but one of them is lamptey. It says he is due back for the city game yet he is still red flagged.

                    Is he likely to play or should I take a hit and bring in someone like Holding or Saiss?

                      you can take a hit because it will be a low scoring week overall...you will be covered

                        • 9 Years
                        3 months, 15 days ago

                        I don’t really get this logic.

                        If it’s a low scoring week then hits take their toll.

                        If you score 90 (-4) then it’s no biggie... if you get 20 (-4) then it’s a disaster surely???

                        1. Boberella
                          • 4 Years
                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          Agree with this.

                        2. Arfaish
                          • 8 Years
                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          I think he means low scoring overall but with 10/11 players it should be fairly normal for me. So a -4 impacts less when it moves me from 60 to 56 when the average is 20

                    Rate my FH team for GW 18:

                    Holding....Stones...Clark
                    Grealish...KDB...Bruno...Son

                      High team value? I like Aguero but kind of risky, will have him or Sterling though for sure. Nice team

                      Kun a fantastic pick if he looks like getting decent minutes in 18. Makes KDB even more captainable too.

                      DCL-Vardy-Kane
                      I was thinking to replace Zaha with Grealish because I have 1m in bank. Should I take a hit for Vardy and someone or should I play with 10?

                        I'd only take a hit for KdB for that team and looks like it's hard to get him. So just gtg imo.

                        Thoughts on FH here? No Kane but got in a few pen takers.

                        Darlow
                        Cancelo Wan Bissaka Holding

                          Kane ahead of sterling for me. Richo an intersting pick.

                            He's on pens right? 3 pen takers from the best of the rest sides in that gw, one pen goal would be nice and two would be awesome.

                              Siggy if he starts

                                Oh yeah forgot about him. Expect James to starts so Siggy would drop to the bench? Will monitor their cup lineup. Thanks Baines.

                          Nice team. It differential with Rich and 2 city heavyweights in mid

                            Two mancity premiums is nailed for me this week for sure. Best fixture and a differential for sure. Just don't know if it's Sterling or Aguero with KdB.

                          Too many punts for a free hit imo.

                            I guess i could go template and get a certain green arrow. Feels like i want to take some punts though.

                        Rival get Soucek points if Adams is out

                          And I'm getting bdeqester 1 pointer. Underscores the need for good bench

                          Why would Adams be out?

                        For the blank gw. Bissouma and KWP -> Smith Rowe and Lindelöf(if fit)/Shaw? 0.1 off AWB...

                          Sounds good - prefer Shaw over Lindelof.

                        You guys ready for fifteen fake Liverpool line ups that people pull out their asses?

                        1. aapoman

                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          Yup. Let me throw in one to start with

                          Alisson
                          TAA Fabinho Phillips Robbo
                          Wijnaldum Hendo Jones
                          Salah Firmino Mane

                            3 months, 15 days ago

                            That’s far too realistic, Salah, Mane and Robbo not starting for sure

                          2. Pukki Party
                            • 3 Years
                            3 months, 15 days ago

                            Fake, Fabinho Phillips other way around.

                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          It's

                          Alisson
                          Trent Hyypia Fabinho Robbo
                          Hendo Thiago Jones
                          Mo Bobby Mane

                        3 months, 15 days ago

                        How's this FH team?

                        DDG
                        Dias Maguire Tierney
                        Son Bruno KDB Foden Saka
                        Kane Laca

                        4.0 Fernandez Brewster Mitchell

                        1. The Knights Template
                          • 7 Years
                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          Maguire bottle fed, hates baps.

                        2. Lallana

                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          Not a fan of the Foden and double Utd defence but like the Laca pick

                          1. mojoindojo
                            • 7 Years
                            3 months, 15 days ago

                            Liked what I saw of Foden yesterday. Punting in the hope he survives pep roulette

                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          Would suggest Darlow over DDG and AWB over Maguire

                          1. mojoindojo
                            • 7 Years
                            3 months, 15 days ago

                            Cheers. Might rethink double utd def. Burnley aren't exactly goal shy

                      8. Atimis
                        • 4 Years
                        3 months, 15 days ago

                        Chances of Adams not playing today?
                        Would take Coufal points from the bench.

                        Btw. what a bad luck with Justin and Cancelo points this week, eh...

                        1. aapoman

                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          Don't think he'll start. Yup the Chelsea goal yesterday hurt really bad with double City defs..

                          1. Atimis
                            • 4 Years
                            3 months, 15 days ago

                            Literally last second goal...and with Justin, it was Andy freaking Carroll scoring, omg

                            1. aapoman
                              • 7 Years
                              3 months, 15 days ago

                              Wasn't really expecting City to keep a CS but that goal just made the feeling so much worse. Yup Carrol's first goal for Newcastle in 10 years. Bad luck.

                              1. Atimis
                                • 4 Years
                                3 months, 15 days ago

                                Good luck for BGW and DGW!

                        3 months, 15 days ago

                        Thoughts guys?
                        A Stones/Holding & Antonio (have Dias)
                        B Tierney & Rodrigo (have Raphinha & Bamford)

                        1. Stormbringer22
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          Depends on your strategy for 19. I prefer A. If you are playing the BB, then go for Stones over Holding. If not - Holding

                      10. Lev Yashin
                        • 8 Years
                        3 months, 15 days ago

                        So I presume we're all doing Salah -> KdB this week and then Son -> Salah for the DGW?

                        1. Stormbringer22
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          Seems to be. I take it you are not using FH in 18 then?

                          1. Lev Yashin
                            • 8 Years
                            3 months, 15 days ago

                            Nah. Might risk a TC for the DGW and save FH/BB/WC for later in the season.

                            1. Stormbringer22
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                              3 months, 15 days ago

                              How many can you get out on the field in 18? I am toying with the idea of saving the BB and FH as well

                              1. Lev Yashin
                                • 8 Years
                                3 months, 15 days ago

                                Currently on 7. Maybe 8 if Taylor makes a miraculous recovery. Then I'll end up with 11 DGW-ers.

                          Yep with a cheeky extra FT or hit to fill out BGW or DGW players

                        • 9 Years
                        3 months, 15 days ago

                        Which would you go for?

                        A) DDG + KDB + Wilson

                        B) Steffen + Rashford + Martial

                        Already have Sterling and Bruno.

                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          Is this a FH? Prefer A

                        2. PlayUpPompey

                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          Yes for a FH.

                        Thoughts on this FH?

                        DDG
                        Cancelo Stones Holding
                        KDB Fernandes Rashford Son Saka
                        Kane Wilson

                        (4.0 Yedlin Mari Brewster)

                        1. Stormbringer22

                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          Similar to what I have in mind. I would suggest Darlow over DDG - SHU are atrocious this season and can't score
