How Arteta has revitalised Arsenal’s attack and what it means for FPL managers

Mikel Arteta’s recent changes to his Arsenal team appear to have been getting the best out of his attacking options.

Even though the Gunners’ upcoming fixtures are not the most appealing, Fantasy Premier League managers would do well to keep an eye on north London.

Accordingly, we have analysed the fortunes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.3m), Emile Smith Rowe (£4.5m), Bukayo Saka (£5.3m) and Alexandre Lacazette (£8.3m) after fourth win in five Premier League games.

        Long season, all started by no Salah.

          That was my fault, I thought Leeds would do a job !

            We were 10 points apart in GW3, now 141 before tonight.

                I did & captained GW1, sold Son & Mitro GW2, WC3 like you, the rest has been a disaster for you.

      Your'e beating me if that helps

        1 month, 9 days ago

        Not overall mate. Been rough all season. Just waiting for luck to balance out as apparently it should over the course of the season.

        1. Danno - Emre Canada
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Arrr ok get you mate, I feel your pain, an absolute shocker of a seaso, , every single decision wrong. Plan for DGWs they don't happen, leave the player in to find form, never does, bench the highest scorer, Captain choices always wrong, oh well as you say, still half the season left hmmm...……….

          1. Coys96
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            Completely the same! i went 8 weeks of consecutive captain blanks. GL for rest of season

            1. Danno - Emre Canada
              • 5 Years

              Ouch and you mate.

    Does Soucek get forward less with Antonio back?

    1. Pedersen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yeb

    2. Africa United
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      The Soucek trap was the best trap

      1. Africa United
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        And Vardy ofc

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Vardy had 9, 10 shots on goal over these two games.

          I think he was a bit unlucky. Unlucky could also be substituted for 'not sharp'... but then he did still get shots off.

      2. Fred54
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Soucek could easily have had some assists today.

        But Vardy over Antonio was not my finest decision.

      3. Camino Aleatorio
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Looks like it

  3. DA Minnion

    Frank has to go. Very very poor from Chelsea.

  4. bitm2007
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    My team still hasn't scored a goal but I'm guessing that nothing unusual in this GW.

    1. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Neither, 18 players gone already

    2. Forgetmeknot
      • 2 Years

      Ha good spot, same

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Ah just realised, only Antonio and Stones

    4. tambourineman
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      My team still hasn't scored a single goal since New Years Day, hopefully I'll get at least one before the year ends!

  5. myteamissheeeeeeeet
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Chilwell must go?

    A. Yes he’s half the payer he was!
    B. No keep he’ll come good!

    1. Team Bobcat
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Not sure for whom, fellow owner.

      I dont think there is any vlue in upgrading to a middling mid. Maybe choose a different defender that would still play. Mitchell may be an option..

      1. One of Those Days
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 9 days ago

        R. Pereira

      2. myteamissheeeeeeeet
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Carries no threat going forward. Looks scared when he crosses the half way line. Missive shame! My other defenders are:
        Cancelo Holding Justin Kilman. Chilwell to Stones/Dias seems a no brainer but probably missed the boat 🙁

    2. ALI_G
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      just raged him out for Dias

      as a CFC fan tired of double punishment

      1. myteamissheeeeeeeet

        Don’t blame you, thinking the same pal

    Guy in my work league is on 119 with 11 players still to play. Christ.

    He's got 36 + de Gea on his bench in a bench boost.

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I’m on 115 (-12) after bonus with 10 to play - 1 of which is my captain. Great week in a terrible season. I’ve got 25 bench points with Wilson, AWB, and Martinez twice to play. I’m enjoying it before it all turns sour next GW. 🙂

      1. Coys96
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Close cup match for me..who wins?

    1. Martinez (x2), Grealish (x2), Stones, Bruno, Salah (C) + 6 points
    2. Targett (x2), Wilson, Salah, Bruno (C)

      Brilliant
      Schmeichel move is more gold than the others

      1. Free Hat
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Yeah his points were an unexpected bonus!
        Probably would have gone Fabianski if it wasnt for moyes comments.

    3. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Schmeichel's been a bonus this week - sold Lloris for him ... shame I also bought in James instead of Justin

  10. Inazuma X1

    Antonio is a pain in the ass for us Soucek owners!

    1. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yep, I’d have got him if I wasnt blocked already with WH.

      Still, I’ve had his points since GW1. Antonio looking the part now. Will look to swap them.

    Steele, Lampety, Bissouma + DCL > Schmichel, Dias, Soucek + Antonio for a -12 worked out well.

    1 month, 9 days ago

    After first 3-4 GWs was around 3.5 million K. Not the best start. Livefpl shows currently around 63k. Before GW I was around 170K, so I gues maybe around 100k aint too shabby after this GW concludes. Bottom line is you can always come back. Yes, luck, Covid Etc play roles. But how come people who finish consistently in the 100k then? 🙂
    Keep pushing

    1. beetlejuice
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      In GW11 I was 1,3M overall. Now sitting on 50K. To people having a bad season, don't mess with your team yet, comeback is still possible.

      Ofc, I was around 2.7m in GW 10. Absolutely the worst start I ever had. Now I am at 450k. Slowly but surely.

    Salah & Werner to Sterling & Vardy for -4?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Don’t know yet but getting Vardy for a hit is a bit odd.

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Good point. Cheers!

    2. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      If Werner starts I would actually keep (I own too). Like the other move though.

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        If Lampard is sacked, then I'm definitely keeping.

    3. Pep Roulette

      Have Mane as well

  16. NateDogsCats
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Was thinking from what I had seen of Leicester that the return of Maddison hindered Vardy a bit, supposedly wasn't the case against Soton (I didn't see that) but in the games I've watched including today it looks that way a bit. Might have to make a move, he's generally done me well when I've had him in the past and they're in really good form

      Pretty much all my mini league rivals played chips this week and last (free hit and wildcard). I’ve kept hold of them all and while they have gained some ground on me with scores in the 90s this week, i’m on 85(-4) with Bruno, Salah, Cityx3 and Villax4 to play. Should I be happy?

                A hattie will make you feel a lot better.

            How many players has everyone left? 9 here, assuming Grealish and Martinez play both.

            Can every footballers interview be like Maddison? Top class

              He is top class. I met him, out of all Leicester players he was the most humble, couldn't say the same about Vardy.

                So refrehing to see a player so honest. What was Vardy like in person? Only met Evans before of the Leicester ranks and he's down to earth

                  Well, didn't speak to Vardy but he was pretty ignorant. It was at a pre-season friendly, some players signed stuff with fans, others like Vardy just ran off and went to warm up.

              Definitely. I can’t remember enjoying one so much.

            Salah and Bamford -> Vardy and Son? Have Kane.

              Just Salah to Son imo

                Vardy has Leeds Fulham and Wolves! Leicester flying

                1. Finding Timo
                    1 month, 9 days ago

                    Leicester have great fixtures but Maddison looks better pick than Vardy

                      I didn’t want Madds to score tonight. Been tracking his progress for a few weeks and about to sign him this week. His goal is going to raise his price and stop him going under the radar for a few more weeks.

                    I agree but keep hold of Bamford while he has Newcastle and Vardy has Everton

                      Thanks. What about after that?

                No way would I buy Vardy after watching him closely tonight. He is off. His team is flying but something is not quite right with him. Maybe it’s the nagging hip. Or confidence.

              What a selfish arrogant interview from Maddison. And I loved it. Was so good to see someone gleaming and grinning and actually talking about themselves instead of just getting the 3 points. Don’t think I’ve seen a post match interview like it. Really made me smile as much as him.

                If Grealish did an internal like that he'd be crucified.

                  I totally agree with you.
