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

    I bought Reguilon for 5.0, he’s currently 5.2 but looks like dropping tonight. Should I transfer him out for my free transfer or hold and take the price drop?

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

      I'd hold. Good couple of fixtures coming up.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      The price drop won't impact you anyway

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        *Sorry it will, but in any case I think I'd hold

  2. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Team for next week set, need to decide on captain still, tempted by Antonio

    Ramsdale
    TAA Alonso Duffy
    Salah Benrahma Sarr Doucoure
    Ronaldo Lukaku Antonio

    Steele Sissoko Tsimikas Livramento 0FT and 0.0 ITB

    James and Ayling to Alonso and Duffy with 2 FTs

    1. Rocket Raccoon
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I’d say Lukaku

    2. tommo1989
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Lukaku surely has to be captain for the next few weeks

        As confident as you can be - as I said on another page I think Chilwell will be be used in midweek games vs Malmö and Southampton to get some more game time

        1. Lord of Ings
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  7. pundit of punts
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Looking at this GW 8 WC

    Ramsdale - Foster
    TAA - Alonso - Laporte - Livramento - Williams
    Salah - Son - Grealish - ESR - Brownhill
    Lukaku - Jimenez - Armstrong

    Have nothing in the bank. Can I afford it come after the deadline on Saturday?

    Sarr and Benrahma rises will give me 0.2 breathing room. Thoughts?

    1. Rocket Raccoon
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Ugh, Son

      1. pundit of punts
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        He’s a lock in my WC

    2. Farnborough's Finest
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I like everything except for Son. I’m steering clear of any spurs until something changes. We’re crap.

      1. pundit of punts
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Son will tick along and get an occasional haul

        1. Farnborough's Finest
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Think you can do more with that money elsewhere.

    3. tommo1989
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Just be aware Jimenez probably won’t play GW8 as Mexico play a couple of days before. I own him but will prob bench and keep

        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I think he does

        Too important to miss out

        1. tommo1989
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          He’s playing at 3am UK time on 14th Oct so can’t seen him playing away at Villa on 16th Oct

    4. Mork calling Orson
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      You wildcarded in GW5

      1. pundit of punts

        2 months, 6 days ago

        Lol

        I didn’t

          1. Mork calling Orson
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            That linked team played its wildcard in GW5.

    5. Atimis
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Vardy over Son imo

  8. Salarrivederci
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    What would you do here? 2 FTs and .1 ITB

    Thinking I gotta transfer out 2/3 of Jota, Pukki and Williams. Maybe all 3 for a -4?
    But really I have to opt for either Pukki -> Antonio upgrade or to bring in Chelsea defender and/or Cancelo

    Schmeichel - Ward
    TAA - Tierney - Semedo - Livramento - Williams
    Salah - Jota - Gray - Gallagher - Sissoko
    Ronaldo - Lukaku - Pukki

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      All 3 out and switch to a back 4 seems ok

  9. Michelle Davin
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    ESR or Saka?

    Time to get rid of torres before he drops

      Neither for me

      probably a

  10. Lord of Ings

    Alonso rising and Torres dropping tonight?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Looks like it, but guess a few WC have been activated which might skew it a bit

    2. Bam Saka Laca
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Likely but many on WC...

  11. Gandalf
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    What’s the consensus:
    A. Alonso (with ok bench)
    B. Rudiger

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

      Alonso

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      A - his next 21 pointer will cover a benching or two

    3. fn.jota
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      For me B or James when full fit

    4. Gunneryank
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I might try both tbh.

    5. lifes a pitch
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Would you guys make this move?
      Ronaldo+Hoever+Greenwood out for Lukaku+Alonso+Sarr -8....

      QSets me nicely for upcoming gw's. I could do -4 and keep Greenwood but this above move means i can keep Marcal which will give me more options and an improved bench

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I wouldn't, but could work out

      2. Bam Saka Laca
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Not for me

      3. Gunneryank
          2 months, 6 days ago

          I would be afraid of such a hit, unless it was an emergency.

      4. fn.jota
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Goodnight all!

        Activated WC yesterday, doing some research for the best 4.5 midfielder, I have Gilmour but maybe he lost his place.

        What’s the best 4.5 mid atm?

        Cheers

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Sissoko

        2. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Douglas Luiz is so hot right now

        3. JariL
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          I'd go for Sissoko or D. Luiz

        4. Pascal
            2 months, 6 days ago

            D Luiz

          • Clintymints

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

          4. Pascal
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Would prefer Antonio/Ings over Jimenez and Cancelo over Azpi

                Cheers! Should be 1.Greenwood and 2. Jota

              Jota to... Gray?

                Greenwood for Saka is what I'm considering. ESR is fine too but Saka looked explosive.

                Benny and Sarr's fixtures are less than ideal, and i can't comment on Everton mids as i haven't watched them.

              Shaw to Alonso or Rudi?

                • 4 Years

                Rudi

                  Thanks

                Same question I'm asking!! I think Alonso makes sense. Surely he won't be rotated he's flying at the moment

                1. Weasel Boy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Yeah I'd prefer Alonso but just a bit worried about rotation.

              3. Mr Ozil
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Have the same question

                1. Weasel Boy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Obviously Rudi safe bet but Alonso more explosive option

              4. Eh, just one more thing ...

                Depends if your a vanilla or raspberry ripple man?

                  Raspberry ripple is tempting

                      Butter pecan for me.

                  I prefer rudi. With CL midweek games Alonso gonna get more rotated than rudiger imo. I would go for James if fit maybe.

                    Yeah that's my worry

                Torres to raphinha using FT before he drops? I’ll need the funds elsewhere.

                1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Yes

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

                    You’re sure raphinha will be fit?

                    1. Eh, just one more thing ...

                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      If he has two broken legs he’s still more nailed than Torres.

                    2. Fulchester's New Centr…

                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      No, looks to me like he is managing something. Rest over IB might be enough.

                        2 months, 6 days ago

                        So he plays the next one I assume?

                          Check Scott Sterling on YouTube

                          My guess is yes

                want to make a few transfers so thinking of just doing the WC. What teams should I be focusing on?

                Chelsea is an obvious one
                Leeds - some good fixtures but haven't hit form?
                Arsenal - dare I say it?
                Burnley - for a 3 out of 4 next GWs? Again not really hit any form.
                Man city - 3 decent fixtures after Liverpool?
                Norwich - I joke. None of their players are getting in!

                I have Ronaldo and Salah but really want Lukaku so I think Ronaldo has to go out relucantly.

                I have Value in Antonio so tempted to keep him, though would like Wood.

                Definitely want 1 (or 2) Chelsea defenders.

                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  3 from the top and choose the rest yourself Carol

                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  1 che,sea defender is enough, harvaetz could be a good shout, stay away from Norwich, arsenal, Burnley, deffo get Man City players and do ronaldo to lukaku

                    A little, lol, bottle of wine...but I always did transfers with hits and then played wild card,if things got out of hand...i basically made 9/11 changes and didn’t hit the wild card button but hit the minus whatever it was points for transfers...now I see I can’t wildcard anymore?

                  You need to do anoteher transfer then hit the activate wc button

                  1. Ambrosiana Inter
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 6 days ago

                    Doesn’t give me the wildcard option 🙁

                    1. Ambrosiana Inter
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      Just another -4

                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Go to transfers again, make changes (atleast 1) and while confirming transfers, hit "activate wildcard" option. Your -32 will be cancelled.

                  Ohhh wait, I have triple captain chip on, perhaps is because of that

                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Sorted, it was cause I had the triple captain option on

                Shaw to alonso for free? Makes complete sense right

                  It does - but unless you are being priced out, wait until after champ league games.

                    I’d take the risk, it’s 0.2 and the move makes perfect sense. Shaw out is going to happen with those fixtures..

                    I will probably do it in the next 10 min 🙂

                  GW8. Dont know the template, but Lukaku, 2 CHE defs, Dias/Cancelo must be in it

                  Likely Template:

                  TAA + City Def + Chelsea Def + Double City/Chelsea Def OR Wolves Def + Livra
                  Salah + Raphinha + Eve Mid or Sarr + Cheap Mid (Gallagher/Esr etc)
                  Lukaku + Antonio

                  GW8 WC

                  Sanchez + 1
                  TAA / MC / CHE / Livramento + 1
                  Salah / MC / Raphinha + 2
                  Lukaku / Antonio + 1

                  -Sanchez vs Norwich GW8
                  -Chelsea's favourable fixture run (inc. Norwich GW9),
                  -Raphinha vs Norwich GW10
                  -Man City for Burnley GW8 - they usually win that like 5-0
                  -Salah & TAA for Watford GW8

                  Problem I see with teams with Lukaku & Ronaldo is that their mids other than Salah are very weak, so if both blank - like this week, they'll likely have poor GW scores.

                Torres to raphinha using FT?
                not a fan of Early transfers but Alonso rising has made things tricky.

                  That Shaw price drop very annoying though isn't it?

                    It is but unless priced out wait for news on his fitness

                Who's more secure of starts: Laporte or Walker?

                  Laporte. But you never know with Pep as you probably know

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

                    Yeah. What do you think about Christensen?

                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      Decent but prefer Rudiger or Alonso if possible

                        Thanks, I already have Rudiger and max 5.7 to replace Shaw with. Tricky.

                  Laporte, maybe, for now

                  I think Walker. Stones will be back at some point.

                    • 7 Years
                    2 months, 6 days ago

                    I'm starting to think that Walker could be an option if you can't stretch to Cancelo

                      Does save you 0.5 but no where near the attacking threat.

                Captain:

                A) Antonio (BRE)
                B) Lukaku (SOT)
                C) Ronaldo (EVE)

                  Kaku for forseeable future

                    He said he has exact cash. Alonso is rising.

                  White is a good one with those fixtures

                  In that case you can risk it?

                  Think Arsenal have decent CS chances for the next two tbh!

                Torres to raphinha done.
                Really hope raphinha’s fit!

                Want rid of Torres tonight before the price drop, who’s my best replacement?

                1. ESR
                2. Gallagher
                3. Sarr

                One of these enables me to then do Marcal > Dias next week alongside Cr7 > Lukaku!

                Foster Tsimikas Amartey Gilmour 2.8itb

                Greenwood and Antonio to Sarr and Lukaku -4?
