Jimenez ends goal drought as Arsenal claim convincing north London derby win

We begin our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Gameweek 6 Scout Notes with analysis of Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton v Wolverhampton Wanderers.

For a summary of all seven of Saturday’s games, click here.

ARSENAL 3-1 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

  • Goals: Emile Smith Rowe (£5.3m), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£9.9m), Bukayo Saka (£6.2m) | Son Heung-min (£10.0m)
  • Assists: Saka, Smith Rowe | Sergio Reguilon (£5.2m)
  • Bonus points: Saka x3, Smith Rowe x2, Aubameyang x1

ARSENAL ATTACK THRIVES

In a sensational first-half performance by Arsenal, Mikel Arteta’s side scored three goals with the impressive Emile Smith Rowe (£5.3m) and Bukayo Saka (£6.2m) causing Tottenham’s defence all sorts of problems.

The duo linked up well for the opener, and ended the game as the Gunners’ expected goal involvement (xGI) leaders, with 0.54 and 0.91 totals respectively.

With fixtures now easing for Arsenal (see below), the pair could become cheap options for our midfield set-ups, though it does perhaps feel like Saka’s spot in the starting XI is a little more secure, given that Smith Rowe only made the bench against Norwich City as recently as Gameweek 4, and was then replaced just after the hour mark the following week.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£9.9m) deserves a mention, too, having netted his second goal in three appearances. 

Admittedly, it’s hard to find a place for the Gabon international in our frontlines right now, but it is worth noting that amongst all forwards, only Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.7m) has accumulated more shots since Gameweek 4.

VALUE OPTIONS EMERGE AT THE BACK

Xhaka and Moura recalled as Ramsdale starts again

Another start for Aaron Ramsdale (£4.5m) means that he has now featured from the off in three consecutive Premier League games, conceding just one goal during that time.

As a result, he’s emerged as a value option in goal, who could realistically rival the likes of Robert Sanchez (£4.6m) and David Raya (£4.6m) for FPL points in the coming weeks.

At the back, Ben White (£4.4m) is a slightly cheaper alternative, but Kieran Tierney (£4.9m) remains the headline pick if your budget can stretch to it. The Scottish international was slightly more subdued in an attacking sense today, but has posted team-league totals for successful crosses and touches in the opponent’s half across the opening six matches.

Defensively, the Gunners have conceded just two big chances against Norwich City (h), Burnley (a) and Tottenham Hotspur (h), though the quality of opposition should of course be considered. 

PROBLEMS AT SPURS

As a result of today’s loss, Spurs’ have now conceded nine goals in their last three Premier League games, while at the other end, they’ve scored just four all season.

The underlying numbers remain a real concern, too.

TotalRank v other Premier League sides
Shots5619th
Shots conceded6718th
xG5.3819th
xGC10.9416th

Son Heung-min (£10.0m) was at least able to score a consolation goal today, which means that he has now netted three in five league appearances this term. However, given the above numbers, it’s hard to get too excited about any of their assets, despite a couple of reasonable looking fixtures – Aston Villa (h) and Newcastle United (a) – up next.

“We were not good enough and Arsenal did a good game. It’s always hard when you concede early in a game and we were not able to control the match. We didn’t start well and the first half was very bad.

Against Chelsea we played well in the first half, but today was the other way around. We were not able to execute it [game-plan] in the right way. 

Credit to Arsenal because they were strong, aggressive and stronger. What I focus on is making the right decisions. We learn in every moment. We are trying to build. There are a lot of things wrong and there are a lot of things good.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

Arsenal XI: Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney, Partey, Xhaka (Sambi Lokonga 82), Saka (Maitland-Niels 87), Odegaard, Smith Rowe (Tavares 88), Aubameyang

Spurs XI: Lloris, Tanganga (Royal 45), Sanchez, Dier, Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Alli (Skipp 45), Ndombele (Gil 70), Moura, Son, Kane

SOUTHAMPTON 0-1 WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS

  • Goals: Raul Jimenez (£7.5m)
  • Assists: Jose Sa (£5.0m)
  • Bonus points: Sa x3, Jimenez x2, Romain Saiss (£5.0m) x1

JIMENEZ ENDS LONG WAIT FOR GOAL

After 14 goal attempts without scoring before today’s game, Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) finally opened his account for the season and bagged his patient owners eight FPL points.

The Mexican had played every minute of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign since returning from the serious injury he sustained in November 2020, but was yet to find the back of the net.

However, that changed today, as he latched onto an excellent goal kick from Jose Sa (£5.0m) in the second-half, before coolly slotting the ball past Alex McCarthy (£4.5m).

Raul Jimenez’s xG shot map 2021/22

“I want to score every game, I knew the goal was coming, I was fighting for it, working for it and all the team deserve it. I was thinking ‘when will the goal come?’. It felt really good. Four of our five games have been incredible, we need to keep going like this. We did a really good job. The fans are always with us, supporting. It is really important for our team, to have them supporting and shouting.” – Raul Jimenez

SA SHINES

The biggest score of the day, however, was reserved for keeper Sa, who kept a clean sheet and made six saves, and as a result collected maximum bonus on his way to a huge 14-point haul for his small army of owners.

The Portuguese stopper has now kept back-to-back away clean sheets, and sits level in fourth with Edouard Mendy (£6.0m) in the goalkeeper standings, on 28 points.

At the back, it was another encouraging performance by Nelson Semedo (£4.9m), who forced McCarthy into an early save and rewarded his owners with a clean sheet.

TRAORE AND TRINCAO DROPPED

Brighton Burnley 5

Bruno Lage lined Wolves’ up in their usual 3-4-2-1 formation today, but switched personnel in the attacking midfield roles.

In response to their 2-0 loss at home to Brentford in Gameweek 5, Adama Traore (£6.0m) and Francisco Trincao (£5.9m) dropped out, with new signing Hee-chan Hwang (£5.5m) and Daniel Podence (£5.5m) coming into the starting XI.

Traore was finally introduced on 71 minutes, but touched the ball just eight times and failed to make an impact, while Trincao remained an unused substitute.

SOUTHAMPTON STRUGGLE, BUT LIVRAMENTO IMPRESSES AGAIN

Ahead of their Gameweek 8 fixture swing, Southampton failed to impress in their audition, though the performance of Tino Livramento (£4.2m) again stood out as he put in a lively display from the right of Ralph Hasenhüttl’s 4-2-2-2 formation.

The youngster ended the game with more final-third touches than any other player on the pitch (35), while he also created a couple of chances.

Further forward, the Saints had their chances – registering 18 shots to Wolves’ five – but were unable to find the net for a third successive Premier League game, and lacked any real quality in the final-third.

As a result of the loss, it’s now six games without a win, as they remain one of five different Premier League teams (Norwich City, Burnley, Leeds United, Newcastle United) yet to register three points this season.

Southampton XI: McCarthy, Livramento, Bednarek, Salisu, Walker-Peters (Long 74), Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Elyounoussi, Redmond (Djenepo 64), A Armstrong, Adams (Broja 64)

Wolves XI: Sa, Kilman, Coady, Saiss, Semedo (Hoever 87), Moutinho, Dendoncker, Marcal, Hwang (Neves 88), Podence (Traore), Jimenez

    Looks like last two gameweeks has been a small victory for those having 2 big hitters and spreading cash in mid priced midfielders or Chelsea and Mancity defence.

    Who to lose Tierney or Semedo?

    1. Lord of Ings
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Why do you want to lose semedo? Was he bad? Is wolves double defence worth it or nah?

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Got, Trent, #James, Tierney, Semedo & Livra

        Getting rid of James & 4.9 to bring in Alonso & Rudiger

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Or just swap James for Alonso & reassess?

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Just James for now. Be mindful of whether Alonso starts in the CL. Chilwell looks ready to go.

            1. Finding Timo
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 4 days ago

              If chilwell plays CL does that mean Alonso great chance of playing v Southampton?

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Neither 🙂

    3. Ibralicious
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Semedo IMO

  5. Jon Walter's Hatty
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Must be more Saiss owners than I thought in FPL towers

  6. Lord of Ings
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Would you double up on wolves defence or get Rudiger?
    Already have marcal.
    A)Rudiger
    B)Marcal
    Semedo had chances today as well..feel like he’s due a big haul.

    1. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      No to Wolves. The team is not good enough,

    2. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Why is B an option when you've already got Marcal ? Rudiger better than double Wolves.

    3. Bojack Horseman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Not a great finisher - why would he be he's a full back - but certainly gets into good positions.

  7. tomasjj
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Would you ship Jota or Greenwood for Sarr?

    And which one?

    Thanks!

    1. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Jota is a rotation risk now that Firmino is back, but Greenwood's output will likely suffer now with Ronaldo in

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Sarr easy run ends next week?

      1. tomasjj
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        So, keep Jota and Greenwood you say?

        1. Forgetmeknot
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          I own all 3 and Greenwood is my biggest concern. I suspect he will be dropped for Sancho following the loss

          1. bench boost for every gamew…
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Not Greenwoods fault that United being crap. why on earth will Sancho replace him? Came from a rugby league not Even close to Pl standard, cant defend and does nothing in attack. Lingard is the one posing any threath to Greenwoods place in starting eleven.

    3. Finding Timo
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Greenwood to raphinha?

      1. tomasjj
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Got Raph already.

  8. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Sell James and Ayling for:

    A) Alonso and Duffy
    B) Rudiger and White/Coady

    1. dshv
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Alonso and coady

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Alonso & Semedo?

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Exact cash for A so Duffy can’t be any more expensive than 4.3 (have Livra)

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Go for it, Alonso is a nightmare to watch not owning.

        1. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Yep, he is nightmarish defender, yes he is.

    4. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      B (White)

  9. dlrowssoB
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    I’ve got 2FT and no idea what to do. Rank is up to about 220k as it stands I think.

    Was convinced I needed Jimi out and Lukaku in, but maybe that first goal will set the ball rolling.

    Think Shaw out to Rudiger is a good start but maybe just roll the second freebie again? Or take Gilmour out for Douglas Luiz.

    Sanchez (Steele)

    TAA - Shaw - White - Duffy - Livramento

    Salah - Jota - Benrahma - Raphinha - Gilmour

    Antonio - Ronaldo - Jimenez

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Shaw and Ronaldo to Rudiger and Lukaku will be popular this GW but I'm tempted to keep Ronaldo for Everton.

    2. Captain Kakaroto (I blame R…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Shaw and Jota are issues. I think it depends when you going to bring in Lukako if at all.

      1. dlrowssoB
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        I’m not sure the power 3 + TAA is the way to go.

        Sure it’ll be a hide behind the sofa moment at times but while Lukaku is only getting singles and not many BPS, his points per £m spent is poor.

        When there’s an obvious Lukaku captaincy opportunity like GW9, there’s an issue.

    3. The Sociologist
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      When will you swap Ronaldinho to Lukaku? For now think you could just do Shaw > Rudiger

  10. Finding Timo
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Do we think greenwood will keep his place ? Who would take it - martial or Sancho?

    1. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      My guess would be Sancho might get some minutes, but could be last 15-20 min,

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Oh ok I am just torn between playing greenwood or ESR

  11. JollyGoodYellows
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    What's the latest on Raphinha? Is it safe to bring him in for Barnes tonight before he drops (don't ask why I've still got him)? Could also go Saka if people think he's a good punt.

    1. Bojack Horseman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Seems like shooting yourself in the foot bringing in an injured player on a Sunday night with no news.

      I know they said on the radio he had ice on his hamstring but he ran off rather than walking, if that helps.

      1. JollyGoodYellows
        • 2 Years

        Cheers appreciate the advice

    1. Bojack Horseman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Seems to get left out of tough away games now .

    2. GreennRed

      Could be. Thinking of switching him to Sarr. Have Hayden too.

    Would you double up on wolves defence?
    Already have marcal.
    A)Rudiger
    B)Semedo
    Semedo had chances today as well..feel like he’s due a big haul.

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years

      Not any Wolves defender for now for me.

    2. JariL
      • 6 Years

      Rudiger for sure.

        Oh…true I guess some people have Gallagher

    How’s this -8?

    Ronaldo, Bamford & Shaw > Lukaku, Aubameyang & Christensen

    1. JariL
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Not for me

    2. Finding Timo
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Yes only if shaw out and Christensen doesn’t play CL

    3. Abaddon
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Chasing auba points. Alonso or rudiger instead of Christ

    4. big_fat_ARSEnal
        2 months, 4 days ago

        No. Ronaldo will probably score similarly to Lukaku, and Bamford apparently may be back for next week. Shaw to CHE defender sounds good tho.

        Don’t take a -8.

        I've just woken up to see Sa and Jimmy have added 22pts to my mediocre score making it a great score.

      Palace v Brighton predictions? I'm going 2-1

      1. The Knights Template

        0-0 both own goals

    7. Lallana
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Which one on WC (considering price too)?

      a) Vardy 10.4M
      b) Aubameyang 9.9M
      c) Ronaldo 12.7M

      1. The Knights Template

      Anyone feel depressed after the gameweek is over? Not because of fpl, but for not having football to watch

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        It’s Monday night football followed by CL

      2. The Knights Template
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        That's when you go out and kick a ball around

      3. Gunneryank
          2 months, 4 days ago

          There's always football to watch. My hand-egg NFL team is playing, plus Brighton tomorrow, then CL midweek. Then before you know it, GW 7 will be here.

          You don't have enough sport?

      4. Erez Avni
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Ok enough is enough… first WC draft:

        Sa
        TAA Cancelo Rudiger White Liver
        Salah Raphinha Benrahma Sar Allan
        Lukaku Jimenez Antonio

        sounds good?

        1. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          What noise is it making?

          1. The Knights Template
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            But ir looks very nice

        2. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          I'd prefer Ramsdale over Sa after seeing Wolves defending. Yes, he hauled and will haul again this season, but as a pick he feels like chasing last week pts.

          1. Mr. O'Connell
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Think he'll get 10 assists this season. Wouldn't be surprised if he popped up with a couple of goals either.

        3. antis0cial
          • 5 Years

          I have very similar on WC. Have ramsdale over sa and Alonso over white .4itb

        Sanchez
        Shaw Tierney Trent
        Salah Sarr Jota Raphinha
        Ronaldo Toney Jiminez

        Livramento Brownhill Ayling 1.5 itb

          Shaw to Rudiger this week. Ronaldo to Lukaku next week, and hold on to wildcard.

            Fair enough mate, was tempted to wildcard and bring in city/ Chelsea defence Lukaku and Antonio, but will deffo look at it next gameweek
