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.

    Trent has more - scores than double digit hauls this season. Worlds away from his form last season. No coincidence either

      I still can’t believe how terrible he has been this season

    Wow! I’ve just seen the Werner goal. That is NEVER an offside. Why the hell is PL so rigged...

    Werner & his owners hard done by there

    Is Shaw a trap? Considering putting him in for either Bellerin or Dier.

      Ive wondered this myself but Telles will always be waiting in the wings regardless of Shaws form

        He's been excellent this season tbh, watched him against City and Liverpool recently and to me he was clearly MOTM in both games. Only real fear I'd have is more to do with MU defensively as a whole but they have looked better of late.

      Where do i hide this gw guys???

      Only 70(-4) with just 5 players left now. Punished so hard this GW 🙁

      Only positive is ive got all the chips and somehow still inside top 30k

      1. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        That is a lot of positive! If only I had that rank!

        1 month, 8 days ago

        That’s not a bad score imo, I’m on 79(-4) with 6 players including KDB(tc) I’m quite happy.

        Very nice rank and with all chips should be a top10k finish

        Thanks guys

        Depends on how much effort you put into DGW.

      5. LC1
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Could be worse. I'm on 52 (-8) and have dropped over 300k this GW already.

        Nail in the coffin for me this season and will probably call it quits early doors. Hope the rest of your GW works out okay!

    4. Bielsa Murderball

        A) ESR + Kane
        B) Antonio + Son ?

        1. fc_skrald
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          B I guess but all 4 could do very well.

        I'm having the day off and all I want to do is to think about fpl 🙂 What would you do with this team?

        a. Lowton -> Mitchell
        b. Wilson -> Antonio
        c. other suggestions

        Martínez
        Cancelo, Tierney, Coufal
        Son, Salah, Fernandes, Grealish
        Wilson, Bamford, Kane

        Button, Lowton, Burke, Douglas
        2 free transfer, 0.5 million in the bank

        1. Bielsa Murderball
            1 month, 8 days ago

            B, did the same thing here.

          • mojoindojo
            • 7 Years

            B looks good

            Thanks all. I hope he will stay fit for next gw.

          I would be pretty chuffed up if Kdb(C) MASTERCLASS occurs tonight

          We feast!

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Think it’ll be a tight game tbh. I’ve TC’d KDB and would be happy enough with any score that takes him over 10 points for the game week.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Just a goal and a clean sheet and we're talking 30 points for him, not too much to ask!

        3. afsr

          Bottomed
          Have a good team but not sure which way to take it forward

          Martinez, Forster
          Dallas, Maguire, Stones, Mitchell, Creswell
          Bruno, KdB, Salah, Son, Soucek
          Bamford, Antonio, Watkins

          1FT, 1.2 ITB

          A - Son, Watkins -> Kane, Gundogan (over 2 GW)
          B - Creswell -> Cancelo/Dias
          C - Son-> Maddison/Barnes
          D - Salah -> Rashford
          E - Soucek -> Gundogan
          F - save

          1. mojoindojo
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            B to Dias for safety or Cancelo for high ceiling

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            B or E

          3. Danny De Gea
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Save

        4. as33
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Sterling should start today?

        5. mojoindojo
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Took Maddison out (had him for 3 weeks) on WC to accommodate Vardy.
          And it was a logical decision at the time.

          1. fc_skrald
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Logical thinking often fails when playing fpl 🙂

            1. mojoindojo
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Also did the illogical move of getting Mount as Maddison replacement.

          West Ham assets time to move or hold?

          1. NateDogsCats
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Depends how many you have but I'd say hold, Palace, Fulham, Sheffield Utd all to come in next 5 gws and they're in form

              • 7 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Keeping Coufal and Antonio for now. Got rid of Soucek for Saka.

            • Inazuma X1
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Their fixtures don't turn until GW25

              Thinking Soucek to ESR, 4.5 cheap mid scoring for fun?

              Monitor Leeds & Southampton for a double in GW23 .... same price brackets as most of our WHU players so a good to consider then

            I'm pretty set on saving the FT but who should I 'bench' out of:

            2. Raphinha (new)
            3. Soucek (cry)

              How do you think villa will do tonight ? Always find it quite interesting after a break, will they have gone past ‘rested’ and into ‘rusty’ and not match fit, what a horrible game to have as your first one back

                Think City might be expecting an easy game but will struggle against a side that’s had a good rest. 1-1 my prediction.

                  Wow, so yo obviously think the break will have benefited them, personally I think it’s been to long and they are going to get leggy after 60 mins

                Villa will be half baked and missing a few players - easy win for City

                    Mostly assist but will get a few goals as well for sure if he gets consistent gametime.

                      I got knocked out of the cup last week thanks to opponent getting Mitchell off the bench...

                        I can see City putting 3 or 4 past Villa.

                        City 4 - 1 Villa
                        Fulham 1 - 3 United

                        This was precise guessing. What are tomorrows game gonna be?

                      Start Saka (sou) over Soucek (cry) and Dallas (new)?

                      If yes, which as first sub, Soucek or Dallas?

                        Yes

                        Dallas first sub imo. Decent chance of a clean sheet the way Newcastle are playing.

                        1 month, 8 days ago

                        Play one?

                        a) Raphinha
                        b) Holding
                        c) Mitchell

                        Has to be Raph against Newcastle? Or is there high cs potential in the other two?

                            At this point I'm thinking of targeting Newcastle fixtures the way I was Leeds games for a while so yeah I'd say him

                          Just noticed that Arsenal have kept 4 clean sheets in a row and have a regular 4.5m starter. Filth
