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

    The laughing at Arsenals summer transfers seems completely unfair in hindsight. Ramsdale, White and Tomiyasu fit their roles well for the club

    1. have you seen cyan

      White and Ramsdale was how much?

      1. GreennRed
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Whiire 50m, Ramsdale 30m

      Was only the very reactionary people, arsenal's full squad is a good team and will do well. Can it stay fit I'm not so sure

      Ramsdale I'm not convinced on yet either but never rated Leno anyway so if he can improve the ball playing and cross claiming probs evens out the shot stopping

      They overpaid for their signings but in a few years they're going to have some quality players

      Top team. Top players. Top 14 for sure.

      Very early days for them. Doing great the past 3 PL games. Judge them at the end of the season.

    6. Inazuma X1

      Lol... they have played Norwich, Burnley and Nuno

    Lost at the bottom...

    How does this WC look like?

    Ramsdale | Foster
    TAA | Cancelo | Dias | Azpi | Rudiger
    Salah | Raphinha | Doucoure | Gallagher | Mendy
    Lukaku | Antonio | Maximin

    Is it better to go with 5 at the back or better to get Sarr and Benrahma?

    1. TheBiffas
      • 1 Year

      Bench headache f.c

    2. DF

  4. tomasjj

    Saka sliding onto the radar?

    If you would WC now, who would be your midfielders?

    1. Attaka

      Salah
      Son
      Benrahma

      Saka Smith Rowe auba

    3. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Salah, Raphinha, Saka, 4.5, 4.5

    4. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Salah, Raphinia, Sarr, X, fodder

    5. JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Salah
      City

      Saka
      4.5

    6. Karhumies
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Salah, Raph, not able to choose the other 3.

      Pepe/Ziyech, Zaha/Gallagher, Gray/Townsend/Doucoure

      Ome of them might be a 4.4-4.6 if going with three forwards.

  6. Attaka
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Please give me your opinion... Best options long term in a draft league?

    A) Jimmy, Digne, Dier
    B) King, Cancelo, Alonso

    tia!!!

    1. diesel001
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      B all day.

    2. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      If you have a draft league with those free agents, you haven't got enough contestants.

  7. Stupendous
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    How is this for next week?

    Sanchez
    Taa. Rudiger. Cancelo

    Should do the lotto tonight..

      • 8 Years

      1. mynameisq
        • 8 Years

        1. camarozz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          1. camarozz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 25 days ago

  9. Rainer

    Ode 1 pointer.

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Sold him for sarr this week. Somebidy here called me a casual for making that switch lol

  10. Coaly
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Which move is best?

    a) Coufal to Alonso
    b) Brownhill to ESR (for Jota/Bamford cover)

  11. afsr
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    A little lost on what to do with this team, would appreciate advice. Get Lukaku and Alonso, or perhaps prepare room for KdB or other Man City assets...

    Sanchez
    TAA Shaw Tierney Duffy
    Salah Sarr Jota Raphinia
    Ronaldo Antonio

    Steele, Allan, Livra, Bamford
    1FT 0.2 ITB

    1. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Get a city defender and rudiger.
      Consider Ron to Luk or Vardy

    2. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Just wait until Friday/Saturday

  12. Andy_Social
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    You call these 2 north London sides 'mid-table', but to be fair they're only behind Brentford on goal difference.

  13. Kodap
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Would you bring Lukaku in this week for CR7 or leave CR7 this week and do the swap after he has Everton?

    1. DF
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I'm captaining him against Everton then selling for lukaku the week after

      1. BobbyDoesNotLook
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        This. Shaw to Rudi this week.

  14. GreennRed
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Ramsdale is awful 😉

    1. Random Name
      • 6 Years

      Only a moronic minority of our fanbase on Twitter said this

  15. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    4-3-3 the formation to play this season then?

  16. Finding Timo
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Play a) Toney away to WHU or b) ESR away to Brighton?

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Both.

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 25 days ago

        That means benching salah, greenwood or sarr?

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Or a forward. Will Greenwood start? Toney and Smith Rowe in decent form.

          1. Finding Timo
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Yeh greenwood form not good so could be rested so could play ESR instead of greenwood thanks

    2. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Play bench boost

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Rest of bench crap though !!

    3. DF
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      All.out attack

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Ha ha I wish

  17. Pascal
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Huge red arrow for me this week, don't think my team is that bad though

      1. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        So many in the same boat … one of those GW

      2. Carefree Crew
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Remember it's early days & ranks are so congested. Everyone will have a bad week at some point. If you're happy with your team, then that's a better position then many will be in. Good luck next week mate. 🙂

    • tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I am wondering if I will just keep Vardy rather than switch to Lukaku.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        I am thinking of doing Lukaku to Vardy but going to hold my FT and have 2 for GW8.

        1. tomasjj
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          yes, keep those FTs in the bank.

    • Pep Roulette
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      What to do here? 2 FTs 0.2 ITB

      Sanchez
      TAA Ayling Shaw*
      Salah Bruno Sarr Gray Odegaard
      Ronaldo Antonio

      Steele Ayling Tsimikas Scarlett

      Not keen on losing Bruno!

      1. Pascal
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Shaw--->Rudiger

        • Carefree Crew
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Having 2 X Ayling puts you at a disadvantage. 🙂

          Seconded Shaw to Rudiger.

          Not having Lukaku for Chelsea nice run of fixtures "may" hurt you if he performs & likely he's highly captained. May reconsider keeping Bruno as he's the obvious cash cow to upgrade elsewhere.

          Wouldn't want a Leeds DF personally.

      2. Gunneryank
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Gabriel quietly having another solid game.

        • Hinchcliffe Thumper
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          White or Rudiger?

          1. Pascal
              3 months, 25 days ago

              Chelsea defender is a must have imo with those fixtures

            • fusen
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 25 days ago

              I own White but Rudiger all day long. Look at Chelsea's defence stats vs Arsenal's

            • Gunneryank
                3 months, 25 days ago

                Rudiger

            • GreennRed
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 25 days ago

              Is Tomayisu nailed?

              1. EmreCan Hustle
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 25 days ago

                Yes.
                Don't think Chambers or Cedric will replace him.

              2. Bertonian

                  Well my moves this week coming should bring some return to form, effectively it’ll be this (-4):

                  Sanchez
                  Trent | Alonso | Shaw
                  Salah | Greenwood | Jota | Raphinha | Sarr
                  Lukaku | Antonio

                  What can possibly go wrong!

                • 8 Years

                Salah. You squeeze him in.

                  To
                  Son and Antonio looks pretty tempting.
