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.

        Jimi and Tierney here but that Spurs goal didn't hurt a bit

        The Ron C fail did tho 🙁

        Great day to watch him play too.

          It's night here but luckily I woke up in time

      Didn't see the match.

      Spurs that bad or were/are, Arsenal now a different class?

      1. GreennRed
        • 10 Years

        Spurs bad. Arsenal better.

        1. Stupendous
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Ok

      2. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        I did not see the match either but it is clear that Spurs are in heaps of trouble and Arsenal are improving until the wheels come off again.

      3. Gunneryank
          3 months, 28 days ago

          A bit of both. Arsenal played like a proper football club. Brave and full of sharp transition play and tidy defending.

          No really 😀

        • jackruet

          Spurs defenders are like statue.arsenal played confident football

          Both

        Trent is turning into a big disappointment, 7.6 & not returning, clean sheets are missing?

        1. Stupendous
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Um, politely..

          No

        2. jackruet

            So you're not watching the games or looking at FPL stats i take it?

            He's literally returned in every match until this week.

          • FOO FIGHTER
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 28 days ago

            Has more points than Grealish, Son, Raphina and Lukaku etc.

            Think you lose this one.

              But not Pinnock. I suggest you compare to other defenders rather than the mythical "hes a midfielder" falsehood

              How do people make these kinds of posts and expect to be taken seriously?

              Agreed. Don't let the blindness of others disuade you

            Ruff week with 41 points!

            Any advice on what to do with this bunch?

            Sanchez
            James Tierney TAA Marcal Livra
            Salah Jota Gray Sarr Sissoko

              3 months, 28 days ago

              Wait on James news. But I'm looking at him to Rudiger if any doubt over fitness.

              Marcal and Jota might be future problems to fix but leave for now.

              Possibly just save a FT.

              1. Stupendous

                I saw news somewhere his injury usually takes 3 to 4 weeks

              Do you still have WC?

              Team is in decent shape. James > Rudiger/Alonso if he's out.

          • jackruet
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 28 days ago

            Down to 380k.

            3 pool players against city Doesn't seem good. Need to ditch jota and bamford.

            Jota + Bamford > Lukaku + Douglas luiz? (-4)

            Another really average week , feel like all the people that WCed early are 40/50 points ahead of me now. Can I just WCed this week or do I slog it out another week

                WC easy unless you have 2 frees and then take a hit for a mini wc

                Why wait? IB? Personally I'm not sure I could wait.

                  This, 2 bad weeks in a row for me, time to WC

          • Cynical
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 28 days ago

            How was Armstrong today? Still worth a go from GW8?

              3 months, 28 days ago

              Looked crap, Saints seem a bit toothless. I am likely going for Toney over him on WC even despite fixtures because of how much more dangerous Brentford look in general.

          • Thinkering like a Boss
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 28 days ago

            Shaw > Rudiger/Alonso -4

            Yay or Nay?

            1. Qaiss
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 28 days ago

              If Alonso were to play on Wednesday, then I wouldn’t be confident he starts on Saturday.

              1. Thinkering like a Boss
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 28 days ago

                I could get Rudiger and be done about it haha

                1. Qaiss
                  • 6 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  Same thing though. People say he’s nailed, he probably is. But also not surprising if he didn’t start. Tuchel rotates too much.

            2. jackruet
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              3 months, 28 days ago

              Yes.

            After a deflating start to the GW with Ronaldo Captain, I'm presently on a tiny green (2k) with Sanchez left to play. Was definitely expecting a red before the 3pm kick offs. Pleasantly surprised & feel like I got away with it a bit this week. Happy days. In the words of the greatest goal scorer the English top division has ever seen... "It's a funny old game." 🙂

            Asked this yesterday there was only one winner. Let's try again today!

            Sarr or Saka?

            1. Thinkering like a Boss
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 28 days ago

              Sarr

            2. Gunneryank
                3 months, 28 days ago

                Considering both honestly.

              • Stupendous
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 28 days ago

                Still Sarr for me, but close with fixtures in Saka's favour

              • Henning
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 28 days ago

                Sarr.

              • GreennRed
                • 10 Years
                3 months, 28 days ago

                Sarr. Dominant Watford attacker.

                1. Karan14
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  My worry is he won't face the current worst 2 defences of PL every week.

                  1. GreennRed
                    • 10 Years
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    2 goals and assist v Pool last year. Very good. Saka in a bigger pool of Arsenal attackers. Could get both? I have Smith Rowe, 5.3m.

                    1. Eddie
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 9 Years
                      3 months, 28 days ago

                      He was up against Lovren.

                    2. Karan14
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      3 months, 28 days ago

                      After that performance he didn't do anything for a long time. But both are good options just feel Saka is the better option going forward.

              • Eddie
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 28 days ago

                Saka, for fixtures. Have been waiting for Arsenal to field a full strength side and look the business. They did today. As good as Sarr is, the fixtures don't look great.

                1. Karan14
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  I completely agree with this.

                Saka has the best fixtures

              • Inazuma X1
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 28 days ago

                • 4 Years

                Saka. The Sarr train ends after Leeds

                Definitely under consideration for me specially as it frees up cash to get a City def.

              I have the exact money to do Traore to Saka.

              Do you think he is safe from a rise tonight or should I just pull the trigger?

                  Bruno a differential now... I think I might keep.

                    Don't keep just cause he's unpopular.

                    Fixtures are turning. A third consecutive blank next GW and his price will plummet like a stone.

                      3 months, 28 days ago

                      Yeah he will have to go for Lukaku in that case.

                    He was SO good against Villa as well. I feel so unjustly punished

                  Who to loose first, Semedo or Tierney?

                  Semedo better stats overall, but Tierney playing for a better side and more settled now.

                    Easy, loose Semedo.

                  Ah I made my transfers already, Jota and Greenwood to Sarr and Saka. Bad moves?

                  Ramsdale
                  Semedo - TAA - Marcal
                  Rap - Salah - Doucure - Saka - Sarr
                  Auba - Ron

                  Foster, Livra, Williams, Scarlett

                    Very good team barring auba
                    Good luck.

                      lol, well he scored today and still great fixtures. I now have 3mil itb, so I could do Auba>Lukaku but may as well stick with Auba tbh (not worth a -4 imo)

                  Of course my tormentor Son wipes away my Ramsdale clean sheet with a pointless late consolation goal. Effing fuming with this game lately.

                  Considering double up on wolves wingbacks for next gameweek..Semedo marcal could really haul next week.
                  Semedo has looked really good and he’s due a haul I feel

                      How did wolves look?

                          Southampton bossed them a good bit, but neither team has any clinical edge, Jimi took his chance very well.
