Line-up Lessons

Which Arsenal players are most likely to avoid rotation during season run-in?

Ahead of an expected rush of Wildcards in Gameweek 31, Anna Woodberry analyses which players stand the best chance of beating Mikel Arteta’s rotation policy at Arsenal.


Arsenal sit second of our Season Ticker over the next five Gameweeks when clubs are sorted by ease of fixture. Mikel Arteta’s side face the four bottom Premier League clubs over this period, with a tough home match against Everton sandwiched in the middle.

For Fantasy Premier League managers on their Wildcard, or those looking to maximise their transfer(s) this Gameweek, these fixtures could yield good returns.

That said, Arsenal’s form this season and their quarter-final matches against Slavia Prague must be considered when choosing which assets to go for. 

We have weighed up their credentials in this latest article by considering recent performances as well as investigating which players are the most likely to play consistent minutes in the Premier League between now and Gameweek 38.

Arsenal have not impressed as many would have expected during Arteta’s reign. The Gunners had a particularly poor start to the league and found themselves languishing in fifteenth place after eleven Premier League matches. However, Arteta has managed to pull them back up during the second half of the season, where they are now flittering between ninth and eleventh position.

This is in spite of a tough run of fixtures in their last ten games, which saw them play both Manchester clubs, Leicester City, Tottenham, West Ham and Liverpool. They picked up 12 points from a possible 30 from these matches: winning three, drawing three and losing four. 

Yet they only managed one clean sheet during this period (and have zero in their last six) while conceding 15 goals in total, six of which came in their last two matches against West Ham and Liverpool. 

On the flip side, though they only netted 14 goals during the same period, the team scored two or more goals in four of the ten games and are in the top five for goals scored over the past six matches. Given that their upcoming fixtures are against bottom-half clubs with poorer defensive records, this is something FPL managers will be hoping Arsenal could replicate over the next few Gameweeks.

EUROPEAN DISTRACTION

Who has the best and worst upcoming FPL fixtures? 14

The biggest headache for FPL managers, however, will be factoring in Arsenal’s Europa League campaign. Their quarter-final first leg against Slavia Prague takes place on Thursday evening, three days before their Gameweek 31 match against Sheffield United. Meanwhile, the second leg is scheduled for the following week, in between Gameweek 31 and Gameweek 32 (Fulham). 

If they get through this quarter-final, the semi-final fixtures are pencilled to take place in and around their Gameweek 34 and 35 matches against Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion, meaning the Gunners are facing the prospect of nine games in 30 days. So, while Arsenal are playing the four bottom Premier League teams, this is happening in amongst their European campaign, raising concerns over how much Arteta might rotate his squad to cope with this demand.

This concern is increased when considering which competition the Spaniard might favour going into the final part of the season as the Europa League arguably represents the best chance for the club to make it into the Champions League next season.

The Gunners are ten points off fourth place with eight Premier League matches to go but are battling a host of rivals to get there. Aston Villa, Everton, Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea are all above Arteta’s team, so the odds are stacked against them to win a European qualifying spot through domestic channels.

This could have ramifications for Arteta’s team selection in the Premier League over the next few Gameweeks. He utilised fringe players in the group stages of the Europa League, keeping his main stars – Kieran Tierney (£5.3m), Alexandre Lacazette (£8.2m) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.4m) – for the league. This may change now we are reaching the latter stages of the competition, especially if this is Arsenal’s best chance of playing in Europe next year. 

TIME FOR THE ‘BIG GUNS’

If we compare the Arsenal players’ minutes for the group-stage and knock-out matches of the Europa League this season, we can already see a shift towards the more experienced group. 14 players – Bernd Leno (£5.0m), Tierney, Hector Bellerin (£5.0m), Gabriel (£4.9m), David Luiz (£5.4m), Thomas Partey (£4.9m), Martin Odegaard (£6.0m), Dani Ceballos (£4.7m), Granit Xhaka (£5.2m), Emile Smith Rowe (£4.2m), Bukayo Saka (£5.2m), Aubameyang, Gabriel Martinelli (£4.9m) and Willian (£7.5m) – have all featured more in the knock-out stages than they did during the group matches.

This is also reflected when looking at the starting line-ups. Leno, Bellerin, David Luiz, Gabriel, Xhaka and Aubameyang have started all four knock-out games so far, with Tierney, Ceballos, Saka, Odegaard and Smith Rowe starting three. Therefore, we would expect Arteta to turn to these players again for the two legs against Slavia Prague. 

IMPLICATIONS FOR THE PREMIER LEAGUE

The issue this poses for FPL managers is whether these players will feature in the Premier League games either side of those quarter-final matches. Though hard to predict, we can see which players started a high number of league games in and around the Round of 32 and Round of 16 matches against Benfica and Olympiacos in February and March. 

Leno, David Luiz, Tierney, Xhaka, Saka, Odegaard and Aubameyang were the only players to start four or more games in the league, suggesting they would be the best bets to play against Sheffield United and Fulham. In contrast, stalwarts Bellerin and Gabriel only started two games each, so might see their league minutes similarly restricted if they play on Thursday.

However, injuries could change this completely. David Luiz looks set to miss the next couple weeks after undergoing knee surgery, leaving Gabriel (£4.9m) to shoulder the principal centre-back burden. In his absence, Arteta could turn to either Rob Holding (£4.2m) and/or Pablo Marí (£4.4m) to partner Gabriel in the Europa League and Premier League games. Both are budget-value defenders who could easily fill the fourth or fifth spots in any FPL team.

In addition, Arsenal fear that Tierney could be ruled out for a similar period to Luiz after limping off in the first half against Liverpool in Gameweek 30. If true, this leaves Cedric Soares (£4.6m) and Saka as the Gunners’ left-back options since Sead Kolasinac went on loan to Schalke in January. With this uncertainty, it means Leno is probably the most reliable way into Arsenal’s defence.   

In terms of midfield and attack though, Odegaard and Aubameyang are the safest picks, but whether they represent the best value for money compared to other players in those price brackets remains to be seen. They could be good differential picks if they start though.

For FPL managers feeling a bit risky, Nicolas Pépé (£7.6m) and Eddie Nketiah (£5.4m) were frequently used in the group stages of the Europa League to give the more established players rest. Arteta could utilise the two again but in the league this time, especially if the tie against Slavia Prague is still close after the first leg.

      personally don't like that defensive lineup at all. Attackers are good though!

    3. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 4 Years

      Almost same with my draft, I have Dias, Holding instead of Coady and Veltman.

  2. FantasyHero

    Allison just not the same after injury. :S

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I took a jousting stick to the shoulder once and I haven't been the same since either.

    What do we reckon?
    1. Cresswell-> TAA or Rudi + Bamf/Watkins -> Aguero (c). (-4). Punty.
    2. Cresswell or Dallas-> Rudi or Phillips + Odegaard -> Salah (c). -4. Safer.

    Martinez.
    Shaw, Dallas, Stones, Cresswell.
    Fernandes, Jota, Raphinha, Son, Odegaard.
    Kane.
    Steer, Bamford, Watkins, Burn.
    1ft, 6.1m ITB. No chips left.

    1. whitepool
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      2. Aguero form so poor it makes an easy decision

    2. whitepool
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      And I would choose Dallas to Rudiger AND Odegarrd a nice differential play IMO

  4. bigdip

    WC team and starting line up gtg? (Got BB and TC still)

    Mendy (Forster)
    Rudiger Stones Coady (Shaw, Phillips)
    Bruno Son Jota Salah (c) Lingard
    Kane Iheanacho (Vydra)
    (0.0m itb)

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years

      It's the same as all the others. Have you been copying?

    2. whitepool
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Like it. My WC team is the exact same other than I have Dias and Wood rather than Coady and Vydra.

    3. olidooley
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Start Phillips over Coady

      1. olidooley
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        All the WCders like myself have the hard on for Trent....Phillips covers that somewhat

        1. The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          That's a sausage fest

    4. Hktrader88
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I've got very similar. But wondering if there is any point in Vydra. Maybe best just putting in Brewster or Davis and then the extra cash gives you transfer flexibility in the future. E.g good chance you may want to upgrade Nacho to Bamford for the last 3.

  5. Sloane426

    Bottomed. Salah + Phillips in.
    Jota or Trent?

          Goodmorning guys, Which would you rather have?
          1) Lingard + Antonio
          2) Dcl + Perreira(Wba)
          Everton has dgw sometime and wba has still chance of fighting for survival. Although Lingard is in form, cant afford him + Dcl..

          1. waldo666
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Antonio flagged, waiting on scan results.

              • 6 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Which LIV combo to have for this favourable run-in?

              A. TAA & Jota
              B. Phillips & Salah

              1. Holmes
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                A

            3. FPL ElasticO
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              If Antonio misses some matches due to injury, is that lowers Lingard's potential as an FPL option?

              I was set to do Gundo > Lingard, but now need some more news on Antonio to confirm that.

              1. waldo666
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                I think Lingard remains a good option.

            4. Finding Timo
                1 month, 2 days ago

                Will gundo play v Leeds?

                  • 10 Years
                  1 month, 2 days ago

                  Wish I knew, I have gone from captaining him this week to potentially losing him on a WC.

                  Don't know, I would probably go with NO city players on WC

                    1 month, 2 days ago

                    I'm really starting to consider this tbh.

                      Cheers for replies Waldo & Fpl . I was considering getting gundo on WC then swaping for son Gw32? Otherwise I could just get son this week rather than Gundo?

                    Bruno, Shaw and Kane are my only locks at this stage.

                    Kane, Salah, Bruno and maybe Martinez and Rudiger

                  tough fixtures for some of the popular assets this week - Spurs, Man U, Leeds, Villa etc ... will probably be a 100 point game week 🙂

                    Reason why WC this week is a good move as most teams are loaded up with players from these 4 teams

                      Digne to TAA vs Gundo to Jota??...0.3 short of. making both transfers

                      1. PogBruno
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                        Would get TAA first as Gundagon could haul vs Leeds

                  Jota or Salah - who to get in this gw?

                      Salah if you have to choose between the two

                    I’m looking at a WC team of

                    Mendy (Forster)
                    Dias Shaw Rudiger (Coufal Philips)
                    KDB Salah Bruno Lingard Jota
                    Kane Iheanacho (Vydra)

                    My worry is that it’s too template. (Currently sitting 20k OR) Any moves I should consider to spice it up, or is that overthinking?

                      It's only template on here. Not that many people are going to come to this side.

                      The team looks great, I don't think it really needs any tweaks. I might be tempted by Coady over Rudiger, but your way is fine.

                        I was tempted by that! Then I watched Wolves play...

                        I pulled in Kevin 4 weeks ago with the idea of having him C vs leeds, then swapping to Salah Vs leeds in 32.

                        Now I really cannot see him starting - the questions is will he come on?

                      How is this WC 1st draft? Son to become Salah after 32. 3.4ITB

                      Lloris
                      Rudiger TAA Dias
                      Bruno Jota Lingard Son Neto

                        Strong squad. Who are you captaining this week?

                        1. Little Red Lacazette

                          1 month, 2 days ago

                          No idea yet. Maybe Jota.

                        1 month, 2 days ago

                        Would you start Lloris any GW other than the DGW?

                        Don't see too many clean sheets for Spurs to be honest

                        1. Little Red Lacazette

                          1 month, 2 days ago

                          Lloris is just for DGW32 and off/bench he goes.

                          Haven't been following but Emi has a double soon also right?

                            1 month, 2 days ago

                            If its just for DGW, feel it's lot of money on the bench, wouldnt surprise me if they concede in both games

                            1 month, 2 days ago

                            DGW looks likely in 35 with United and Everton

                            One cs all season against top 8 for Martinez. Any number of teams could get a DGW in 35.

                      Likely BB in 32

                      Areola | Johnstone
                      Dias Shaw Phillips
                      Salah Bruno Son Lingard Saka
                      Kane Richarlison
                      | Iheanacho Coady Amartey

                      Can this WC setup work out?

                        If you have BB left why not wait until the rumoured dgw in 35?

                      1 month, 2 days ago

                      Is it crazy to sell Dias on WC and go with Edeson or no City at all?

                      1. Echoes
                          1 month, 2 days ago

                          Not crazy at all. I have Stones, and looking to loose him in the next couple GWs. The closer they get to the title, more unpredictable Pep's roulette will get imo.

                          Not one but crazy. Ederson is City's only nailed on player. There might be cheaper keeper alternatives to suit budget better and City have a blank in GW33.

                          Maybe do it next week?

                            Don't believe KDB and Gündo start against Leeds. They play against Dortmund again next week so most likely rested against Leeds

                              Saka still has hamstring problem. Punt on M Pereira for 5.3m or Jota instead of Salah gives a lot of possibilities?

                                Saka could play. Arsenal play in the Europa tomorrow so if he is in the squad I think I'd choose him

                                1. GreennRed
                                  • 9 Years

                                  They could have done with him v Liverpool. Played much too deep. Tidy player. Good luck with your picks.

                        Is it better to wildcard this week, or wait until the next round of Champions League is over?

                        Not much interest in Ings. Blank in GW33 but a double due, tricky looking fixtures for Saints win but he can still score and needs to have any chance of getting in Euros squad. Calvert Lewin's dip in form not doing him any favours for Euro spot. Looks tired and Danny fresh after injury.

                          Do we think Adams has lost his place again? would want to consider him for budget reasons

                          1. GreennRed
                            • 9 Years
                            1 month, 2 days ago

                            Possibly. Wouldn't buy him if not sure. In a roundabout way a bit like Ihenacho since Maddison return, gametime looking less certain.

                            1. PogBruno
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                              I am lookin for DGW35 players to would sit on the bench until then, Saints and palace are likely to have nice doubles, cant convince myself to get palace fwds though

                              1. GreennRed
                                • 9 Years
                                1 month, 2 days ago

                                It's a long stretch to have money on the bench for players not to be injured or suspended beforehand. Even a hit or two just before 35 will guarantee you starter's and help you max out for the GW in between.

                              Same, but its hard as I brought in Kevin 4 weeks ago as Captain for this GW - if he dosnt start I dont think he will come on, so im going to go for it with Kane vice

                            How about one week punt, Sterling vs LEE?
                            Will be Salah in gw 32.

                              If you think he will start, go for it
