Can Aubameyang prove a worthy alternative premium FPL midfielder?

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang‘s (£11.3m) recent form and upcoming fixtures have put him on the Fantasy Premier League radar for the end of the 2020/21 season.

Between Gameweeks 27 and 38, Arsenal face just three matches against the current top six and their number 14 has double-digit hauls in two of his last three 90-minute league outings.

Aubameyang was a commonly-owned asset at the start of the campaign but some shaky form and poor performances saw Fantasy managers largely replace him with a Manchester City midfielder or Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m).

With two blanks in a row and a tough run of fixtures coming up, many are wavering on the Manchester United man while the Citizens’ midfield has been a rotation minefield of late. Could now be the time to consider Aubameyang once again?

With Arsenal featuring in Blank Gameweek 29, we have taken a comprehensive look at the data from our Premium Members Area to compare the two players, and other big budget options in midfield.

    Buy Toby for safety or try it out with Reguilon for the fun?

    1. Nedvěd11

      2 months, 13 days ago

      No one is safe in Spurs def.

      My guess is Dier is playing against CRY and Toby benched...

  8. Oliver Tockman
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    A) Traoré
    B) Lingard

    Considering also the possibility that Villa double in GW28.

    Worth captaining Kane over Gundo — Pep, + unlikely to play both fixtures —, or stupid to do so on a double?

    Struggling to make a decision tonight.
    Could play it safe and do Barnes > Lingard and leave it at that, but I am being chased in a mini league and we have very few players different from each other, so I was thinking to maybe take a gamble and switch from two City defenders to two City midfielders...

    A) Barnes > Mahrez and Cancelo > Targett? -4
    B) Barnes > Mahrez and Stones > any decent 4.5M defender? -4
    C) Barnes > Lingard for FT

    Any thoughts on these?
