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.

“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)

      Can we now have more than 3 players from one club?

      Saw some teams with 4 from Arsenal!!!

          They had Zinchenko in their team before his transfer to Arsenal.

          If you bought them before they transferred to a new club, yes. Same every year 🙂

          First transfer will need to include the sale of the player(s) that are outside of the game restrictions

          1. tokara
            • 8 Years

            Thanks for explaining

          Only short term. Those teams would have had a player from another club who then later moved to Arsenal. As soon as they try to make a transfer they will be forever to sell an Arsenal player to bring it down to 3.

            Sky sports in general has had a drastic decline in recent years with the soccer saturday panel but sky sports news is unwatchable at times. The introduction of fan chats with youtubers, transfer shows with people from twitter so any credibility they have went a long time ago.

            Not surprised they are talking about FPL now, they seem to have nothing else to do.

            1. LangerznMash
              • 6 Years
              11 days, 9 hours ago

              It’s surprising because Skysports have their own fantasy football game!

              I suppose they have to fill the 24 hours of broadcasting and filling some of it with free opinion pieces from joe public and social media types keeps costs down.

              Soccer Saturday is terrible now, apart from Stelling, who I hope is on stupid money for carrying the channel.

              I’d take that (apart from Bournemouth scoring).
              However Dele Alli will score today.

                First day optimism on Leeds United?

                Wolves will keep it tight.

                  Safest time for optimism 😉
                  Actually I'm really not sure what to expect from Wolves. They were solid, but in defiance of xGC. Could also be more open trialling a back 4

                    I knew it was you Mark!

                    So what's it like working with AZ on Blackbox? Do you purposely place spiders behind your camera for a conversation point?

                Yeah I was too busy deciding on which 5.0 def to get at the last minute that I forgot to change the captaincy from Kane to Salah

                The great divide:
                Non-Salah owners vs Salah captain.

                  Sorry guys, just trying to catch-up...

                  What's the general vibe after last night please?

                  A - Season over / acc deleted
                  B - Swapped Zinc for Tripp jusb4 the deadline
                  C - This game is all luck
                  D - Jesus can't finish as usual

                    A. Season has been a complete and utter disaster. I picked Jesus and he didn't score.

                    Guys this is my squad now. Had Mart and Zinc and then swapped them for Rams and Jesus. Those who are saying Jesus will not do well give the guy a break.

                    Is it just my suspicious mind or does anyone else find it odd that many of the current top fpl teams after day 1 week 1 have no game week history? Experimental second teams going for day 1 glory? Why go with 3 CPL and bench Robbo and Havertz otherwise...

                          Microwaving the bacon shut off my power. Had to flip the circuit breaker 😆

                            I had the 'bacon pancakes' song in my head when I was shopping. When I saw the bacon pancakes it wasn't even an option, had to get them! Didn't even know they were a real thing...

                      His upcoming fixtures are good. Away to Palace was the one I less sold on, but thought he looked decent.

                        If has a massive haul and you do not own him it would matter, espicially if you used an FT to remove him for another forward which may blank.

                      I think there were a lot of people who thought that the Palace game was going to be tricky (myself included) and were waiting to GW2 to get their Arsenal player of choice. Leicester were mediocre away from home last season and Jesus could possibly haul. He can't score in every game remember!

                    All 3 of us in my mini-league for good-close-old-buddies have Darwin, and one captained him. We haven't talked about FPL before the deadline. Was not expecting this situation.

                      One of them gets Guehi's -1 off the bench if Darwin doesn't play 😀

                        would be shocked if he didn't come on, reckon he bags a goal and all

                      Quite expected.

                      Klopp virtually said it yesterday.

                      Could easily score from the bench to turbocharge the Liverpool come back?!

                        11 days, 9 hours ago

                        I didn't expect the situation of the 3 of us having 4x Darwins in GW1. Was expecting just 1 (me!).

                        Managers will always manage expectations, though. What they actually do isn't always as conservative as what they say, otherwise it would be too easy for the opponents!

                        But yeah, I'm hoping for the turbo-charging!

                      Darwin might be nailed from GW3 but then soon after there will be Jota and Firmino with rotation.

                      Why I decided against picking picking him.

                      What a weird assertion. Okay I'll play

                      Darwin will probably get 38 mins playing time today.
