ENCOURAGING SIGNS FOR ARSENAL ATTACK

Jesus blanks but Arsenal get off to perfect start: FPL notes 1

Arsenal were left frustrated at missing out on Champions League football last season, but there was a lot to like about their performance at Selhurst Park on Friday, especially in an attacking sense.

In the early stages, they were electric up front, with Gabriel Jesus (£8.0m) – owned by a whopping 77.1% of FPL managers at kick-off – showing glimpses that the hype built up in pre-season was justified.

The opener arrived from a set-piece routine after some sloppy marking, an ongoing issue for Palace that clearly hasn’t been fixed over the summer.

Gabriel Martinelli (£6.0m) headed home Oleksandr Zinchenko’s (£5.0m) nod back from a corner, a relief for the Brazilian after he had missed a huge chance earlier on after some good work from Jesus.

As a result, only Liverpool and Manchester City (15) have scored more Premier League goals from corners than Arsenal (14) since the start of last season, which is worth noting with Leicester City up next, another side who struggled to defend dead-ball situations in 2021/22.

Arsenal secured the three points against the run of play as Bukayo Saka’s (£8.0m) cross took a huge deflection and hit the net.

“The game he (Jesus) played right from the start is just a nightmare for defenders. He is electric, he never stops, he is always on your shoulder, he is ready to go with and without the ball and I am really pleased with his performance.” – Mikel Arteta on Gabriel Jesus

ZINCHENKO AND SALIBA IMPRESS

Oleksandr Zinchenko put in a solid shift for Arsenal at left-back, producing a 12-point haul via an assist, clean sheet and maximum bonus.

During the match, he registered one shot in the box and created two chances for his team-mates, whilst his movement often saw him invert as Arsenal settled into a 3-2-4-1 shape in possession.

And it worked very well for the most part, with Martinelli and Jesus linking up nicely in the final-third.

Above: Arsenal’s average position map v Crystal Palace in Gameweek 1, featuring no 35 Oleksandr Zinchenko


“Both of them (Jesus and Zinchenko), the way we started shows how hungry they are, the risks they take, the initiative they give in the game. They are really big additions for us. That is something he (Zinchenko) gives, that ability and versatility – and it is something we don’t have.” – Mikel Arteta

Elsewhere, French defender William Saliba (£4.5m) made his first start in an Arsenal shirt and was excellent, while Aaron Ramsdale (£5.0m) made two important saves to deny Odsonne Edouard (£5.5m) and Eberechi Eze (£5.5m), ensuring the Gunners clean sheet was kept intact.

“Wili (Saliba) was phenomenal – his relationship with Gabriel, his understanding with the back four, for him to play his first Premier League game away from home against Palace, really credit to the boy because he stood with a big presence and a lot of composure.” – Mikel Arteta

Mikel Arteta’s side now have an appealing set of games to come, which includes back-to-back matches against newly-promoted sides in Gameweeks 3 and 4.


PALACE START SLOWLY

Palace improved as the game wore on, with Edouard and Eze forcing Ramsdale into a couple of fine stops, but a slow start essentially cost them.

Patrick Vieira had said on Thursday that his team were behind tactically after being split up during pre-season, and it was evident as Arsenal launched wave after wave of attacks in the early stages.

Eze, meanwhile, didn’t see enough of the ball during that spell but improved significantly after the break and should have scored, while Joachim Andersen’s (£4.5m) long-range passes to the flanks caught the eye.

“It’s something we spoke about: we know Arsenal shuffle a lot and switch sides, so it worked well. I found Wilf and Jordan a few times.” – Joachim Andersen

However, the Eagles will be disappointed with their start in Gameweek 1, and it doesn’t get any easier with trips to Liverpool and Man City in their next three fixtures.

“Football is about trying to score goals and we played against a good side. It’s really difficult to control the game against teams that have really good players. We had the ball, we had situations but we didn’t create very much. In the key moments, we didn’t score to lift the crowd and build momentum. That is something we have to work on.” – Patrick Vieira


Crystal Palace XI: Guaita, Clyne, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell, Doucoure (Milivojevic 75), Schlupp (Hughes 86), Eze (Ebiowei 86), Ayew, Zaha, Edouard (Mateta 58)

Arsenal XI: Ramsdale, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko (Tierney 83), Partey, Xhaka, Saka, Odegaard (Lokonga 90+3), Martinelli, Jesus (Nketiah 83)

      Don’t think Jesus was in the game before being at Arsenal.

        Huh? Of course he was.

        Cant remember if he was transferred before the game opened though.

          Strange reaction- then you go on to prove my point.

    Anyone know if there is a way to link a users FPL score to directly update in an excel spreadsheet? Thought I may have seen this done before in an old FFS league I was in..

    I'm managing a mini league and would make it much easier to track weekly scores.

    Thanks

      Gw history and rank gives you it on the main site.

      Don't know how you link for a separate record or why Excel is better, other than to look back next season.

      1. Kered
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        11 days, 15 hours ago

        I manage a league which requires me to track scores a bit differently. Having points auto update on an excel sheet would save me a ton of time

          Good luck

          Someone will have an Api for that.

          Linking to Live FPL might be the solution?

      Leagues on livefpl allow you to export scores to excel so that could be a way to do it. http://www.livefpl.net/leagues

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        11 days, 13 hours ago

        Ah yea, but I'm assuming this would require everyone from the league to sign up? If I can't figure out the API options mentioned above I'll look into that

      Google Sheets has an API — if you’re so inclined it’s fairly straightforward with bit of scripting, iterate through your manager IDs, grab the JSON, populate, etc

      1. Kered
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        11 days, 3 hours ago

        Definitely inclined, love learning new things to make things like this easier.

        I'm not super familiar with excel, but slowly learning new things.

        What your saying sounds about the same as what I was reading on a Reddit post last night, I'll figure it out!

        Thanks

        Picked him because of that hat trick vs Sevilla, wouldn’t have had him otherwise

          Lol this, these posts always make me laugh.

          Today someone will ‘call’ a clean sheet getting busted

    • PartyTime
      • 1 Year
      11 days, 14 hours ago

      Safe to say, the most owned player before a season would be the first trap of the season.

      Lesson learnt!

      1. Tabasco

        11 days, 14 hours ago

        It's been one game mate (in which he looked promising).

        1. PartyTime
          • 1 Year
          11 days, 14 hours ago

          Plan was to go without him vs Palace then get him after that

      2. Kane Toads
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I am sure you did not pick him just for a single gameweek. And he wasn't bad yesterday. Hang in there.

        1. PartyTime
          • 1 Year

          Yeah, he will resurrect!

                At least something came out of this exchange!

        I swerved him just to try and be slightly different. The opening half hour was tense though, he was electric. He’ll do well this season for sure.
        I thought Martinelli would be enough cover. Arsenal looked menacing so I may need to revisit that one soon.

        1. PartyTime
          • 1 Year
          11 days, 14 hours ago

          Well done. It sucks that I didn’t stick to the plan. That hat trick vs Sevilla made me a sheep

            He was never going to score every match. Wouldn’t surprise me if he fills his boots next week on last night’s performance. I may even bring him in if people start selling.

              Still a 1 gw trap is his incredible point

              1. PartyTime
                • 1 Year
                11 days, 13 hours ago

                What then is a trap?

                I’m sure you have a better point

                1. MYNAMEISBigtopmark.sman
                  • 5 Years
                  11 days, 13 hours ago

                  A trap is someone who does not perform for several weeks surely. Is that hard to work out?

                  1. Mambino
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 8 Years
                    11 days, 13 hours ago

                    but how many weeks exactly - 4? Probably 4 I'd say

                    1. MYNAMEISBigtopmark.sman
                      • 5 Years
                      11 days, 13 hours ago

                      I strongly consider selling after 3 straight blanks.

                        • 8 Years
                        11 days, 13 hours ago

                        Then you know it's a trap when they haul the week after

                        1. MYNAMEISBigtopmark.sman
                          • 5 Years
                          11 days, 13 hours ago

                          Always happens. Some players will always be traps.

                          Walcott is permatrap
                          Digne
                          Lukaku
                          Sterling likes to trap

                        2. Mambino
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          11 days, 13 hours ago

                          Sterling will be interesting this season though his traptivity may have been City related

                        3. PartyTime

                          11 days, 13 hours ago

                          Now you calling these players traps before they have even kicked a ball counters what you just said about a 1 gw trap even though I know they are 😆

                          11 days, 13 hours ago

                          historically they were traps

                        5. PartyTime
                          • 1 Year
                          11 days, 13 hours ago

                          Jesus is averaging 2 points per match. Over 70% Ownership, definitely a trap! Lol

                          I was going to say that right now that's an accurate statement but I think you need more than one to calculate an average

          He was a trap for this gw. Not saying he would be a trap next gw or after

              Dumb comment. If you actually watched the game, you'd have see how fluent and impressive the Arsenal attack was. I'm more than happy owning Jesus going forward and regret not picking Zinchenko as my 5th defender.
              I can see Arsenal winning their first 4 games and might treble up on them.

                The Trippier or Zinchenko dilemma certainly looks to have gone wrong for me. It did look more like a 3-4-3 at periods. Which nullified Saka slightly too.

                  Just looking at the positional stats and Saka still very prominent in the Palace box, I withdraw that comment! He certainly had to track back and help White with Zaha though.

                I think you missed the sarcasm.

                      About 20% of managers took a risk of going without, I’ve got Jesus but definitely have to credit those who went without him. They could easily get him next gameweek

                        I'm guessing good % of those autoselected there teams and won't change them all season

                        Explain how they easily get him?

                        Sell kane?

                        Sell haaland?

                        Keep the money in the bank?

                        What if he blanks again?

                        Are they still brilliant managers?

                        Or do you downgrade somewhere and upgrade another striker for a hit foregoing your minor advantage from this week because your non Jesus player definitely didn't blank?

                          Werner and Haverz owners can easily get him next week

                          But they didn't really gain on us this week, did they

                          It depends on the specific team. So many factors to consider, you’re right but there are also so many possibilities too, what if they have cash in the bank for the move? Or What if they picked someone like Watkins/Wilson/Vardy who could smash it this gw & maybe they still stick to the plan of getting Jesus.

                          If that’s successful, they are already ahead of the curve in that regard

                        5. MYNAMEISBigtopmark.sman

                          11 days, 13 hours ago

                          Let's say they have a 7.5 or 7 and money in the bank to upgrade to Jesus.

                          The only way they gain is if there gw1 player hauls. This creates a conundrum. How many players make a transfer in gw 1 to get rid of a guy who did well to get a guy who didn't?
                          And you call them clever?

                          Also the lesson learnt, Referring to gw 1 only based on ownership,Shaw last season with that ownership, Jesus this season. Saying one could avoid picking the most owned player at the start & it could work out well. That’s my point.

                      If any (or all) of Salah, Kane, or Haaland blank this GW, are they also a trap?

                          Indeed.
                          So, any player, over a seemingly arbitrary ownership %, who doesn't return is a trap.

                          Partytime is way ahead of the flock.

                            It is mildly disappointing though that he blanked though isn't it - let's face it

                            So many people picked Jesus that’s why people aren’t complaining this gw but if about 40% of managers did not pick him. I’m pretty sure some would also call him a gw 1 trap

                            The book needs to cover a broader area; 'How to spot traps only after you think you've fallen into them'.

            Very interesting that one. Tierney still looks a better left-back to me, defensively. He came off the bench last night so must be close to full fitness.
            Hard to see Arteta changing shape or personnel yet though.

        2. PartyTime
          • 1 Year

          I think he is fairly nailed depending on his form. Got involved in the attacking phase last night, looked good overall. Worth keeping.

            I agree but thought he looked a bit vulnerable on the back foot. Palace we’re applying some real pressure for a period to be fair.

              Yes, that’s why I think he is fairly nailed based on form. He did well offensively but terrible when defending

                You should write a book called the 1gw trap that explains the way you navigate a 38 gw season where if someone blanks once you are trapped and how you can avoid that while still getting a great rank

          Much more attacking than the Seville game, which convinced me that Gabriel was a better option. It's possible he get's Xhaka's role when Tierney comes back. No hurry to bring him back though and Arteta is still hopeful of bringing in someone, like Tielemans, who could take the spot ahead of him

            Arsenal's weakest points (not inc dodgy goalkeeping) was at full back. White and Zink were both done for pace. I think when Tierney's fit he'll start and Zink would be best used in Xhaka's place. He'll be more dangerous, more likely to get more assists, and bag free clean sheet points. That's probably when I'll look to get him into my team.

          It's not though, if xhaka was the only one to haul, you would have plenty of crap players who go to the top because lots of people make multiple teams to triple captain anyone in the first week. The zinc crap players got it right. Won't be there at the end though

        Eze looks a wonderful player, I must say. Slightly deeper so maybe not FPL wise but he certainly glides around the pitch. Technically he was superb.
        Was very impressed with J Anderson too. A rolls Royce of a centre back that one. Palace should be fine this season. Like many teams, need a better finisher though.

            So did Martinelli before he scored. Don't judge a forward by the chances he misses, especially in a rusty first game, but by how often he gets in a position to take a chance.

            1. si
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Exactly. I’d be more buoyed by the way he was getting in one on one positions.

          I always felt some Palace assets would be good to target after their run of nasty fixtures. Eze will be an upgrade on Neto, Andersen as a 5th defender. I was even considering Edouard as a future 3rd forward, upgrading a 4.5 to a playing 5.5. But he was taken off before the 60 minute mark.

          1. si
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 13 Years
            11 days, 13 hours ago

            Was tempted with Édouard. Looks like he might share a lot of pitch time with Mateta though. Will keep an eye on that one till fixtures ease. Zaha still the real Palace option for me at a later stage. He wasn’t at this best last night but still a handful. He’ll score 10+ I reckon, especially with pens.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Ayew should be an option at £5.5m too. He was a threat. Never seems to deliver though.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            11 days, 12 hours ago

            Also eyeing Palace assets around GW5. I want Eze to work out but expect the pull of Zaha to be too strong for me (and I loathe him as a player).

              If he was nailed at LWB, we'll all be on him, but I'm not sure he will. He covers Chilwell if he breaks again, but otherwise he'll play LCB, but possibly not often enough to be confident in having him in our squads.

          Most are idiots and bots, but there is a certain logic at times. For instance, people have 'booked in' transferring Kane to Haaland and have no cash to catch a price rise, so they do the exchange when they are sure it is still possible.
          Mendy - I guess they have Ramsdale and saw him being a bit shonky. I'm clutching at straws there.

          Great to see the new season started - always seems so long to wait from May to August. I was surprised/confused to see some of the leading teams had FOUR Arsenal players in their teams - my understanding the rules only allow 3 PLAYERS from any one club - any thoughts on this & if the Premier Fantasy League will take action?

            No clue. I avoided the one in GW1. But probably have all of them in GW2.

              Hello. You have Ramsdale or Zinchenko?

                Neither! Got one Arsenal - Martinelli. Had Ramsdale but moved to Sanchez to have 0.5 ITB for future price rise adjustments/ transfers.

          Tierney came on didnt he. Interesting to see how that develops with Zinchenko. Zink by no means nailed.

          If Tomiyasu was fit whose place would he take? Or wouldn't he make the starting 11?

          Thanks 🙂

            Ben White might be vulnerable.

            SofaScore stats rated him yesterday, but he had the lower pass competition accuracy compared to Saliba, Zinchenko, Gabriel etc.

            White was terrible yesterday. Lacks quality to be a regular in a team competing for 4th spot.

            Yep, as above. Tomiyasu at right back. White notionally a CB, didn’t impress today

              I think he made about 8 tackles.

              SofaScore rated his stats the highest for Arsenal. Only lower than MotM Andersen.

              I guess it's stats v eye test!

                Very much so. Did many things well, silly tackle, passed the ball to a Palace player … Arteta perhaps following different metrics than us fantasy types 😉

            The only way you will benefit is if you capped him.

            If you don't own him and he has the Fulham GK for lunch, you are f*****.

                Bit harsh, Jesus was involved.

          Mini leagues are going to be a slog this year, even in the low standard ones most people have the same core of 7-8 template players

          1. Baps hunter
            • 4 Years
            11 days, 12 hours ago

            I expect something to happen to brake the template. But yes, all teams are pretty similar now and I expect this to be very difficult season. The point difference between top 10k and top 100k will probably be smaller than ever. And I'd expect point difference between top 100k and top 200k became almost marginal. The number of followers of decent content creators is huge.

            Michael McGovern. Conceded 5 goals vs Aston Villa but still had a double digit return at 4.0m

            It’s a bit boring but surely Trent has earned his place amongst the elite.
