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

    My defence is:

    TAA Shaw Digne Ayling Amartey

    Is Shaw&Digne/Ayling/Amartey to Alonso&Rudiger worth a hit if wildcarding in GW8? Thinking of doing Shaw -> Alonso tonight and monitor the rest. Could play Ayling if fit against WAT.

      Repost
      Not done the raph switch yet..have 0 ITB
      Torres to raph gives me .6 and Alonso likely to go to 5.9..it’s gonna be digne to Rudiger/Alonso..Alonso has insane ceiling so I definitely want to atleast have the option of having Alonso even if I don’t go for him
      Pull the trigger on Torres—>Raph right?
      Anyone?

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

    5. Dynamic Duos
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Out of interest who would be your pick here?

      A) Benrahma
      B) Sarr
      C) Saka

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

        Long term definitely Saka.

      2. Maeki2
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Nah i go with Benrahma he is so creative

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

      raph is flagged, you can always go for one of the otehr 6.6.5s that you dont already have

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

        He’s the best.
        He’s going to run riot vs Watford if he starts which he probably will.

    7. The Royal Robin
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Shaw & Ronaldo > Christensen & Lukaku

      Worth it for -4?

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

        No

      2. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Yes for me, as they're likely long term moves and Shaw isn't getting you any points anytime soon.

      3. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Don't think Ronaldo to Lukaku is worth -4, just the 1st

    8. FF Dirtbag
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      What should I do? 2FT. 0.1m ITB.

      Sanchez steele
      TAA James Marcal Livra Williams
      Salah Greenwood Jota Gray Sissoko
      Antonio Bamford* Ronaldo

      1. FF Dirtbag
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        James should be starred too!

      2. Dynamic Duos
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Alonso and Jimenez?

        1. FF Dirtbag
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          What a great shout... And I do love Jimenez. But wolves are a bit meh aren't they?

          1. Dynamic Duos
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            See how he goes with the fixtures, he broke his duck today and DCL back soon

      3. jay01
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Rudiger in

    9. FCSB
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Would absolutely love a Brighton cleany on MNF

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

        Would be a lovely end to a tough week.

      2. BeWater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 6 days ago

        This would be a very welcome turn of events after my 3 points from Livramento, Shaw and TAA

        1. NateDog
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 6 days ago

          If it helps someone in my ML had Shaw, VVD, Tanganga and Rudiger for a grand total of 2pts!

      3. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        As a Sanchez owner it'll go something like this
        89th min, Brighton on a CS
        Sanchez on 2 saves
        Sanchez a YC for time wasting
        Last minute goal conceded

      4. Maeki2
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Expect Lamptey to play?

    10. Nightf0x
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Alonso or rudi boys ? Shouldnt we be worried if alonso played vs juve

      1. Milkman Bruno
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Yep, we should

          1. SMOOTH
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            if chilwell started a high profile game such as juve.. and on top of that played decently. that shows that tuchel is ready to trust him which doesnt really bode well

            1. Milkman Bruno
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Alonso playing a lot of minutes. Chillwell starting a game wouldn’t concern me too much. Alonso has not done anything in his performances to warrant him being dropped from first choice imo. Chillwell was not great in the cup (outside of the penalty miss)

                1. jay01
                  • 7 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Alonso wasnt good enough last game. His creativity has been poor

                  1. Milkman Bruno
                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      His creativity has been poor? Not sure if that’s actually based off anything other than Chelsea couldn’t get the ball from City? What about the other games

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

              should we be worried or should we consider him nailed and first choice?

              if hes benched .. should we be worried that rotation has started or should we be safe thinking hes being saved for PL?

              i dont see how any midweek situation will clarify the outcome

              1. FF Dirtbag
                • 10 Years
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Just injury...

                1. SMOOTH
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  yeah injury is obviously a concern.
                  i dont think it clarifies the rotation concern though

            3. Firmino

              2 months, 6 days ago

              I went safe with Rudiger for GW7. Will probably have both from GW8. Southampton concede many headed attempts.

            3) TAA (MCI)

            2. Milkman Bruno
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Trent and Jota should not be on that list. Brighton flying high and Arsenal can’t keep clean sheet.

                1 IMO
                Can see ASM scoring

              Lads I’m over the moon, I’m ranked 14k but still unsure with this team next GW, any thoughts? 2FT and 0.8

              Sa
              Rudiger Regulion White
              Salah Raph Traore Sarr
              Ronaldo Lukaku Antonio

              Foster Liv Amartey Allan

              1. Milkman Bruno
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Madness looking at your team with White, Amartey, Traore and Allan in it and I’m ranked 1.5mil behind you 😆

                • Igz08
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Traore/Amartey out (or both) seems the fairly obvious move

                • 2 Years
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Is Ronaldo gonna be on penalties?
                If Fernandes is still gonna take them, I am seriously considering transferring him out (even taking a hit last week!)

                Would you make Shaw to Rüdiger tonight with one of two free transfers for this team next week? Priced out otherwise and would then have to use second transfer later in week probably on Ronaldo to Lukaku

                  • 10 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Alonso or Rudiger?

                  1. Eh, just one more thing ...

                    • 9 Years

                    If you have good bench defenders, Alonso .. if not, Rudiger.

                            That’s a decent return from a wing back to be fair

                        Not enough at his price, he’s the talisman at spurs but doesn’t want to be there, & that’s impacting the whole team. After the performances of last 3 games I’d say they’ll struggle to finish top half.

                          Maybe but teams that Kane has historically come up well against in the past are on the horizon.. they have to turn it around somewhere

                        He doesn't care anymore. He doesn't want to be there and it shows.

                      Apologies repost:
                      I know he’s been shocking in FPL terms, but does anyone know how well Harvey Barnes has played ? He’s started all 6 games this season so Brendan must like what he’s seeing ? He’s due to drop in price soon so could be a bargain in a front 3 of a top 6 team ?

                          Great player and Rodgers loves him. So much uncertainty with Nacho and Daka though.

                            £1m cheaper than Jota & Greenwood but more nailed yet lacking their returns, monitoring indeed.

                                Is Rudiger worth the extra 0.6 over Christensen, especially with the latter's spot potentially being more secure in light of Reece James' injury?

                                  I think so with the likes of Silva and Chalobah around. Also CHO or Pulisic can be RWB against weaker teams

                                2. Carefree Crew
                                  • 3 Years

                                  It depends upon the timescale that James is out for & how long you want Chelsea DF in your team. Looking at the fixtures GW's 7-11 (6th November) are great, before they arguably turn.

                                  "If" James is out until after this date, I think Christensen & the extra £0.6m has value.

                                  Hudson-Odoi has played RWB when Tuchel first arrived but he's hardly played him there since. Pulisic struggled when he played there & don't think he's played there again since from memory.

                                  Christensen is competing with Silva for the middle of the back 3, but has also played RCH. "If" Silva gets injured then Christensen is definitely nailed.

                                  I expect Azpi to play RWB in the majority of games with James out, freeing up the RCH position. Silva at 37 & CL football won't be playing 90 minutes twice a week.

                                  So potentially Christensen has 2 positions he can play.

                                  I'd expect him to play the majority 4/5 of these favourable fixtures. Rudiger has to be rested at some point & he hasn't been yet, logically the time to rest him is against weaker opposition around CL fixtures. So I wouldn't be surprised if they played the same number of those games.

                                  I brought Rudiger in before James got injured, I may have gone for Christensen if I was making a transfer for a Chelsea defender this week, depending on what I could do with the additional £0.6m.

                                            Think it's worth doing James to Rudiger tonight to save the 0.1 on the Rudiger rise?

                                            Or better to wait for more news on James and the mid week game to play out?

                                              Ngl 0.1 rise hurts less than midweek game injury and having to do minus 4.. wait till friday imo

                                                Why would you have lied enough in the first place, though, for having to state up front that you're not going to lie in this instance?

                                              Wouldn't put Tuchel past starting Kepa every now and again!

                                                I'd agree on this, think he'll get the odd game (think Tuchel has said something wishy-washy along those lines at some point?). There's also an element of justifying his price and salary, it looks really bad if he's sat there as a pure sub all season.

                                            Just checking, there's no actual news on Shaw's injury right?

                                            Looking at the volume of transfers it would be classic FPL for him to start, CS and assist next weekend and for Chelsea to concede!

                                              Both great options
                                              Would lean Sarr, less rotation/early sub risk, possibly on penalties, Sarr edging it on xGI stats

                                            Seen quite a few posts talking about selling Greenwood which is fair enough given the fixture swing and decent options for ~1m less but seen people say his form is poor and place is at risk? Didn't see the AV game but he had 109 threat and he's good at taking those half chances from an angle on either side.

                                            Add to that I can see United doing well against Everton and Leicester. I'm a Fernandes owner (not interested in Ronaldo because he's Ronaldo) and he'll have to go if I'm going to get Lukaku in the next couple of weeks but can see LC-MU being a more open affair than Brentford-Chelsea.

                                            Not feeling the need to wildcard as I'm starting to see people talking about getting in players like Toney and Smith Rowe who I'm glad I stayed patient with.
