Arsenal’s FPL defenders denied clean sheet by freak own goal in Everton defeat

Arsenal 0-1 Everton

  • Goals: None
  • Own goals: Bernd Leno (£5.0m)
  • Assists: Richarlison (£7.8m)
  • Bonus points: Ben Godfrey (£5.0m), Jordan Pickford (£4.8m), Seamus Coleman (£4.8m)

ONCE BERND, TWICE SHY

A calamitous Bernd Leno (£5.0m) own goal was all that stood between Arsenal defenders and a clean sheet as they lost to Everton on Friday night.

It means their shutout in the Gameweek 31 win at Sheffield United remains the Gunners’ only one since Gameweek 22.

And even with Newcastle (away) and West Bromwich Albion (home) on the horizon, owners of their defensive assets will perhaps be wavering in their faith.

Still, there may be some hope considering Arsenal looked on course for a clean sheet in the opening match of Blank Gameweek 33.

They controlled possession against a largely toothless Everton attack who managed just one shot on target all evening.

And their goal did not come from that effort, Leno turning a Richarlison (£7.8m) cross into his own net, a freak error that both Mikel Arteta and Carlo Ancelotti 

“Yes (it’s an error). It’s an own goal. We know we have to do better. I haven’t spoken to him.” – Mikel Arteta

“I think we have two really good goalkeepers. Mat got a chance because he deserved it. I said before the game he’s been training really, really well. Bernd is our number one goalkeeper and he’s been doing well and errors are part of football.” – Mikel Arteta

“I think, honestly, it was a draw, to be honest. Arsenal did more control of the ball, we were good defensively in the first half. We were not so clinical in position. Honestly, it was a draw but… it can happen.” – Carlo Ancelotti

ROAD TRIPPIN’

Without key some key personnel, Arsenal lacked any cutting edge on Friday night, continuing a poor run of form at home.

They have now conceded the first goal in each of their last five home matches and losing seven in total this season is the worst in a Premier League campaign since the 1992-93 season (also seven).

By contrast, Everton’s recent away form has mostly been about defence rather than attack.

For example, Friday was James Rodríguez‘s (£7.7m) second blank in his last three Gameweeks while he has just two attacking returns on the road this season.

His 8.7% ownership should not be too concerned though as he has involved himself in nine goals across his 12 Premier League outings at Goodison Park in 2020/21, where three of Everton’s next four take place with matches against Aston Villa, Sheffield United and Wolves.

Ben Godfrey (£5.0m), Jordan Pickford (£4.8m) and Seamus Coleman (£4.8m) were the top-scoring defenders for the Toffees on Friday, thanks to their bonus points rewards.

The England international goalkeeper has been stringing some good form together on the road of late.

This was his third clean sheet in his last three Premier League away matches, in which he has produced 20 saves, five bonus and a total of 30 FPL points (7.5 per game).

“Jordan did really well. He had a good save at the end. He was comfortable, I have to say. Good with the ball. His performance was really good.” – Carlo Ancelotti

LINE-UP LESSONS

Without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.3m) or Alexandre Lacazette (£8.4m), due to illness and a hamstring injury respectively, Eddie Nketiah (£5.3m) made his first Premier League start since Gameweek 14.

Neither one of Arsenal’s senior centre-forwards is in particularly positive condition from their various ailments, so with upcoming matches against Newcastle (away) and West Bromwich Albion (home), he could be worth considering, providing the injury situation remains unchanged. That said, the former Leeds loanee did not offer much in the way of threat on Friday night.

“We have quite a lot of injuries for some important players. We picked up more last weekend and we have adapted.” – Mikel Arteta

Elsewhere in the team, Granit Xhaka (£5.2m) continues to deputise in the left-back role vacated by Kieran Tierney (£5.2m).

This was the Switzerland international’s third successive Premier League start in defence while Cédric (£4.6m) has not been involved from the beginning since Gameweek 28. That said, Xhaka was arguably at fault for allowing Richarlison so close to Leno’s net for the goal.

While the former Southampton man is to be avoided, Arteta continues to chop and change his centre-back partnerships too, although Rob Holding (£4.2m) remains a consistent member.

The budget asset has started each of the last four Premier League matches, although he taken part in two different pairings during that time.

Gabriel (£4.9m) joined him in defence for the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool and 1-1 draw with Fulham while Pablo Marí (£4.4m) was his partner for the 3-0 win at Sheffield United and the Blank Gameweek 33 meeting with Everton.

There was also an indication of who will take Arsenal penalties without Aubameyang and Lacazette in the team. Dani Ceballos (£4.7m) won a spot-kick in the second half which saw Nicolas Pépé (£7.6m) grab the ball, although he was denied a chance to dispatch it when he was revealed to be offside in the build-up.

Meanwhile, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.5m) made a first Premier League start for Everton since Gameweek 30, although endured a quiet evening.

He was paired up-front with Richarlison, supported by a midfield diamond. Rodríguez was the number 10, André Gomes (£5.3m) and Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.8m) as the central pairing with Allan (£5.2m) anchoring.

“It’s good for us (to have Calvert-Lewin). We have back Mina, we have back Delph, Gomes. The strength of the squad is much better than the last game that we played.” – Carlo Ancelotti

Meanwhile, Michael Keane (£5.1m) missed the match with a hamstring injury that stopped him from training in the build-up to Blank Gameweek 33.

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Xhaka, Marí, Holding, Chambers (Willian 83′); Ceballos, Partey; Pépé (Ødegaard 74′), Smith Rowe, Saka; Nketiah (Martinelli 74′).

Everton XI (4-1-2-1-2): Pickford; Digne, Holgate, Godfrey, Coleman; Allan; Sigurdsson, A Gomes (Delph 66′); Rodríguez (T Davies 86′); Richarlison (Mina 89′), Calvert-Lewin.

  2. KAPTAIN KANE

    Feel stupid capping Vardy now I’ve seen Salah’s EO of 147% :O

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Might be a great differential. Still don’t think Salah is back to his best and Newcastle are no pushovers at the moment

    2. Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Vardy could absolutely explode and do the bird celebration

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      As long as you have Salah it’s a good punt

    4. C_G
      • 6 Years

    5. COUFAL SO GOOD
      • 3 Years

      Don't look at EO!
      You gotta beat the EO - do something else.

      I have Vardy as Captain also. Fingers crossed mate!

  4. JONALDINHO

    Alisson
    Trent Kabak Fabinho Robbo
    Gini Thiago
    Mane Firmino Jota
    Salah

    My predicted line up. Think we will go 4231 without Fabinho in the midfield because of Phillips

    1. JBG
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Looks like that's the lineup.

    2. KAPTAIN KANE

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Really? Ater that line up I expect Liverpool to trash Newcastle by four goal margin

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      How lol. It’s as attacking as it gets.
      Though I have to say Nacho at 100% EO did surprise me

    3. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Why? It's a pretty attacking imo.

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Not attacking enough?

    5. Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Salah will be really far right that's why, he won't be involved much in the middle

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years

      Not sure Klopp considers religion when making subs.

      1. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Think it's the fatigue part that might go in hand with the religious part rather than just religion on its own

          If you understood how the body works you would know that the absence of food does not equate to lack of energy.

          In fact the body has more energy when it's not using it to break down food.

          But carry on son

          1. Nightcrawler

          7 at the Max and he would have loaded up on suhur with the usual pasta and stuff that most athletes do the night before, so no issues there on timings.

    Play 2 defenders and 1 attacker below for next GW

    A) Shaw (LIV)
    B) Lowton (WHU)

      Yeah same re Trent. My league rivals all have him and I don't. I've had him twice this season and he did F all and now I don't he's punishing me. I do think Newcastle will score though.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        I think they will too and own Trent

        1. bigwig

          It's scary not to own him the amount of crosses he puts in

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 9 days ago

            Be great if they had a strong header of the ball striker!

      2. Wolfman180
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        I hope so. I was working yesterday so couldn't spend time weighing up transfers to get him in. Thought about Bruno and Philips to TAA and Greenwood but I wanted 2FT going into next GW. In the end went Philips to Strujik. As exciting move as you get!
        Be certainly watching this one from behind the couch

    Licking lips with Salah oop striker on penalties.

    Remembering it's early kick off and Liverpool are at home ...

      Why would he be striker with Firmino playing?

      1. Make United Great Again

        He’s playing number 10. 4231

          How do you know? Couldn't Firmino be number 9, Jota 10 with Salah and Mane wide?

          1. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 9 days ago

            Because Firmino is more of a 10 than Jota.

            However I see Salah playing from the right as usual

              Fair enough. Not saying you're wrong, just curious.

            If you said Firmino 10, and Jota 9, maybe I would believe you. 🙂

            I expect him to play striker with Jota on the right, but it could be vice versa of course.

      Salah or Jota oop?

      1. Nanoelektronicar

        3 months, 9 days ago

        Not sure, I wish Salah, but who knows.

  23. Make United Great Again

    Need Salah to go absolutely mental. 4 goals and 1 assist + 3PS.

      Golden boot on the line with Kane potentially missing next week

        Salah will be thinking about this no doubt! Selfish

      That would be delicious!!!

    Bricking it as a non Salah owner, can't quite remember why is captained Nacho either :S

    Come on ASM

    May have missed one but the only other two fab 4 appearances I can see were in GWs 6 and 8

    SHU 2-1
    City 1-1

    1. Nanoelektronicar

      Liverpool played great in the opening phase of that City game, but sure, it was more counter attacking football. The Sheffield game there were struggling a bit, but I remember Jota being phenomenal there.

        No

        Mane cameo in that one

    Poor, poor Newcastle. Just seen the line-ups

    Anyone else hate having a captain in the early kick off?? Haha, hope Salah can repeat the success of the Bournemouth fixture a couple of season ago!!!!

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Yes I do too!

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners

        Haha glad it’s not just me mate!!!

      Gameweeks drag on for so long these days that they all seem like early kick offs to me

    3. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      My thinking exactly mate! You remember nicely it was an early kick off. But Liverpool seem to struggle in both early kick offs and home games, so double whammy. I still captained Salah, just couldn't go past him this week. Got Vardy and Nacho both though.

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Yeah that’s the concern mate!!! Just gotta hope we get the Bournemouth result today!! I have Nacho vice, don’t have Vardy, was very close to putting the armband on Nacho, but that would have been because it was the Monday night game!! Hopefully both score well anyway!! With Salah getting a bit more of course!! Haha

      One of the reason I’m putting the band on Nacho

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Yeah he’s my Vice mate!! And also why I was so close to putting the armband on him!! Always nice to have a captain in the Monday night fixture!!

      Didn't he score a hat trick in first game of season this year at 12 30?!

      The Bournemouth fixture a couple seasons ago is possibly less relevant than Liverpool's record at Anfield since Xmas: W1 D2 L6 with 4 goals for and 12 against. 😕

        The players will put in extra shift being first match post the super league saga. Will go 3-1 prediction (probably concede first)

        Let us dream, don't be that Ruth - less

          Hey, a 6-0 would suit me. Just preparing myself for the worst. 🙂
