Xhaka and Moura recalled as Ramsdale starts again

In the final Premier League match of the day, there’s a small matter of a north London derby at the Emirates as Arsenal take on Tottenham Hotspur.

The Gunners, who are unbeaten in their past 10 Premier League home games against Spurs, make one change as Granit Xhaka (£4.9m) returns to the starting XI after a three-game ban, with Nicolas Pepe (£7.2m) dropping out.

That means a third consecutive start for Aaron Ramsdale (£4.5m) in goal.

At Tottenham, Japhet Tanganga (£4.6m) and Davinson Sanchez (£4.5m) replace Emerson Royal (£5.0m) and Cristian Romero (£4.9m) at the back, while Lucas Moura (£6.4m) comes in for Giovani Lo Celso (£5.9m) further forward.

Steven Bergwijn (£6.0m) and Ryan Sessegnon (£4.4m) both miss out through injury.

GAMEWEEK 6 LINE-UPS

Arsenal XI: Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney, Partey, Xhaka, Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang 

Subs: Leno, Pepe, Martinelli, Lokonga, Cedric, Maitland-Niles, Holding, Tavares, Lacazette

Spurs XI: Lloris, Tanganga, Sanchez, Dier, Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Alli, Moura, Son, Kane

Subs: Gollini, Rodon, Gil, Lo Celso, Skipp, Romero, Royal, Scarlett, Davies

        My team has been a mess for 2 weeks now. Think it's defo time for me

      I have an ok team for next week but several bad fixtures. But I do think it’s an advantage having wildcard for international break and any injuries

    3. Eh, just one more thing ...

      Think it's time to bite the bullet and WC this week. Too many under performing players in the last two weeks combined with injuries to Shaw and Bamford, my lack of Chelsea players, United poor fixture swing. Lots of things point me in the direction of a big change up!

    Tony Adams is really looking forward to seeing Tommy Yasu today 😆

    Me and my fellow Arsenal triple uppers are going to be unbearable on here today.

    Maybe give us our own room?

    1. No Need
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Thats what the United treblers were saying

    2. Khark
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Which triple are you riding with? Tierney, ESR and Auba?

      1. Ógie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Tierney/Ødegaard/Aubameyang

  4. Echoes
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    Best FPL option out of these 3 this season?

    A: Traore
    B: Barnes
    C: Thierry Henry

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      C.

      At least you'll get an auto sub who'll get points.

      1. Lindelol
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Plus you get Henry for free

    Oh wow Brighton can actually go top of the table after a win

    1. TomSaints
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      That’s pretty cool

      1. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        I hope not lol

  6. lifes a pitch

    Ronaldo or Lukaku?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Lukaku

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Lukaku

  7. Alexis Nonsense
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    I only need Brighton to concede and I'm happy with this shambles of a gameweek

    59 points enough this week?

    1. Von Lipwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      I'm on 60 (-4) and GW rank is around 200k, i.e great!

      1. Alexis Nonsense
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        A lot of Sanchez and Veltman owners...so if Brighton get a CS I think we are heading down tomorrow

        1. Harry the Hack
          • 13 Years
          10 months, 21 days ago

          Duffy too

        2. Von Lipwig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 21 days ago

          I'm more optimistic than you (although I do have Duffy)

  8. Isca Extremadura
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    Luk now

  9. Make United Great Again
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    Is Ronaldo (C) > Lukaku (C) -4 madness this week?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Yeah I think it's stupid.

    2. have you seen cyan
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      its not worth it imo, Ronaldo is a fine cap choice. I dont want it for free, Lukaku is porobably the better captain, but not enough to warrant -4.

    3. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      For -4 yeah. I'm probably going to do it for free depending on events during the week.

    4. Make United Great Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Cheers guys. You’re right. United haven’t been filling me with confidence recently that’s all 🙁

    5. ZeBestee
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Not madness at all if you captaining. With the way Utd are playing, and without a good deputy at the left back (Telles back?), then Everton will be another game they will struggle to break down as I can't separate Villa/Eve much. (Forget about their result). In Doucoure/Alan, Everton have 2 of the best winners of the balls in the league.

    6. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Yup … free following week instead

  10. Isca Extremadura
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    Palace v Brighton usually spicy
    Yep need a CP goal as a non BHA owner
    Sanchez hugely owned

    1. g40steve
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Palace goal needed tomorrow?

    2. OLEgend
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Need palace to score atleast 4 lol

  11. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON

    Here we go boys 😉

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Admire your hope at this stage 😀

      1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Scored midweek lol

  12. Isca Extremadura
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    & Velt / Duffy

  13. g40steve
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    So Torres & James need to go which mid & defender combo?

    12.7, 2FT

    1. have you seen cyan
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Sarr and Alonso? Something like that, Raph if you dont have him

      1. g40steve
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Don’t have either of those three, Raphinha injured?

  14. Moyesinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    Someone just offered me an Alonso>Van Dijk transfer in draft. Normally I would not look at this, but I already have another Liverpool defender but no coverage for the upcoming chelsea schedule so I am tempted. The major worry obviously being Chilwell coming into the team and taking Alonsos spot. What do you guys think?

  15. tangtastic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    If you had to drop one against Man City, at home, who would it be:

    A) TAA
    B) Salah

    1. Make United Great Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      A

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Could be 0-0 or 2-2 that.

    3. Zimo
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Probably Trent

    4. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      A

  16. The Mighty Hippo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    I pressed my wildcard button last night, this is how it's currently looking, any obvious issues? Tomiyasu is getting his audition today and Douglas Luiz has been looking great for Villa, so they're taking my bench spots for now.
    0.2M left.

    Ramsdale
    TAA | Dias | Cancelo | Alonso
    Salah | Grealish | Raphinha | Sarr
    Lukaku | Antonio
    ---------------------------
    Guaita | Tomiyasu | Douglas Luiz | Scarlett

    1. sirmorbach
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Not sure about Grealish, but it's a great team surely

      1. Make United Great Again
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Worth a punt with their fixtures imo.

    2. Make United Great Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Lovely side

    3. have you seen cyan
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      looks good, but may as well get Foster over Guaita no?

      Not convinvced about Grealish personally, is there a forward thats a better option around the same price? Maybe you could stretch to Vardy if you dump Guaita, or Ings fixtures get good soon, Jimi also scored today

    4. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Perfection

    5. ClassiX
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Decent team. Have an alternative to Raphinha in mind, due to injury and also due to being picked for Brazil for international break after next week - have to hope the powers that be have the post travel isolation issues sorted out.

    6. Pascal
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Would prefer double Chelsea defence instead of double City

  17. sirmorbach
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    Friends, sorry to bother again, but I really need your help to see whether this team is WC material

    Meslier / 4.0
    TAA / Shaw / Livramento / Marçal / Omobamidele
    Salah / Jota / Torres / Raphinha / Benrahma
    Antonio / Ronaldo / Obafemi,

    and if it's worth changing for the following:

    Ramsdale (Foster)
    TAA, Dias, Rüdiger (Duffy, Livramento)
    Salah, Raphinha, Benrahma, Sarr (Luiz)
    Lukaku, Antonio, Bamford

    I could hold and sell Shaw/Torres for a hit, but there are other headaches as well e.g. Meslier. What do you reckon?

    1. 1314
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      before this I had got no City player, and only Rudiger as Chelsea cover..wanted to get rid of Shaw & Greenwood (and Ronaldo eventually when the fixture turns)..so I activated my WC..

  18. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    2 free transfers and .3 in bank

    A Play WC
    B Greenwood Ayling Shaw to Sarr Alonso Rudiger-4
    C Just Shaw to Alonso/Rudiger and carry
    D Ronaldo to Lukaku and Ayling to Alonso/Rudiger (if Shaw OK) using 2 frees

    * are injury concerns

    Sanchez
    TAA Shaw* Semedo*
    Salah Greenwood Jota Raphinha* Benrahma
    Ronaldo Antonio

    Foster Livramento Ayling* Scarlett

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 5 Years

      D

  19. Eh, just one more thing ...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    If you could start only TAA or Cancelo in Liv vs City … who you start?

    1. have you seen cyan
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      TAA @ home, much higher ownership

  20. Isca Extremadura
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    Duffy, Veltman, Dunk & Sanchez OG’s lol

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      So long as Sanchez gets a Hattie too I don't mind

  21. Nightcrawler
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    Arsenal def prices make little sense. 3rd fewest goals conceded last season and better defence on paper than last season

    1. Stranger Mings
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Arsenal got some good fixtures coming up likes of white great value

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        I prefer tierney for the attacking threat

        1. Stranger Mings
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 21 days ago

          Yeh guess tierney better for assists

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Yet, probably fairly priced

  22. Heiro
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    Hi all,

    Was all set on Jiminez/Greenwood to Lukaku/DLouis

    Jiminez scored but don't think he was particularly great.

    Still do the moves?

    Or take Bruno out (no Ronaldo) and upgrade Obefemi?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      Do the moves

      1. Heiro
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        His fixtures look incredible though haha.

  23. Jullepuu
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    I was planning on playing the wildcard gw8 but if I played it now I could play Christensen and Jose Sa insted of Veltman (or Ayling) and Sanchez. Worth it or not?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 21 days ago

      I reckon

      1. Jullepuu
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Thanks

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years

      Play it next week. IB will for sure throw up some weird stuff.

      1. Jullepuu
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        True but it's hard to resist

  24. Gunneryank

    Dear Arse: please smash this dreadful Spurs side.

    Sincerely, fans of football.

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!

      Amen

  25. Wheyyyy
    • 4 Years

    Omg I can't believe I played Foster over Sa.. Fuming

  26. Richarlidad
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 21 days ago

    Van Dijk & Matip > Alonso & Rudiger (-4) ?

    Not a kneejerk btw, I was planning these moves last week. Although I wasn't anticipating a hit... so now I'm not so sure both are worth it. Just one Chelsea defender in?

  27. Ginkapo FPL

    Orgasmic

  28. Ógie

    ESR goal Saka assist

  29. Sim Simma
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    ESR essential

  30. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON

    Thank goodness for that.

    Maybe now Nuno will attack
