After winning three games consecutively in the league, the Gunners are not looking to stop that streak anytime soon. Mikel Arteta’s men have bounced back in fantastic fashion after having a very unconvincing start as they lost their first three games and conceded 9 goals. Since then, they have kept two clean sheets and conceded only once in the three games they have played against Norwich, Burnley, and Tottenham Hotspur. A major reason for this form is that all players were available for selection and still are apart from Granit Xhaka who has suffered an injury. Nonetheless, in this article, we look at the three Arsenal players you can take in your fantasy team for this weekend.
#3 Ben White (4.4m)
At just 4.4m, Ben White is a perfect value-for-money player and the cheapest and the perfect option in this Arsenal defence. White is a nailed starter whom you can easily trust to start every game, bar any injuries or suspensions. He was Arsenal’s most expensive signing this summer as they splashed 50m on him, and he will be looking to prove all his critics wrong this season.
White faces his former club Brighton this weekend as he will be eyeing a clean sheet against them. Brighton have just scored five goals this season, while Arsenal have conceded only once since the international break, thus a clean sheet for Arsenal could be on the cards.
#2 Emile Smith Rowe (5.3m)
Another bargain, at just 5.3m, is Emile Smith Rowe. The youngster did not have the best start to the season as he did not have a finisher upfront in the form of either Lacazette or Aubameyang as both of them missed the initial few games due to injuries. Now that they are up and running, Smith Rowe showed how capable he was as put out an outstanding display in the North London Derby.
He had a double-figure haul last week as he scored once and assisted once as well, on top of that he got 3 bonus points. The 22-year-old had a total of 12 points last week and will be looking to contribute to more goals in the near future, which makes him a perfect asset to have in your team.
#1 Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (9.9m)
Owned by just 2% of the people in the game, Aubameyang is the perfect differential to have in your team, as he will help you climb up your overall rank. Looking at his current form, the striker is just too good to ignore. While he is a bit expensive, if he can continue to score as he has in the past few games, he will come very well. The Arsenal captain scored 9 points against Norwich and 7 against Tottenham Hotspur.
Going into the Brighton game, Arsenal will be looking to feed their captain, and he will surely be targeting a goal or two. As the Gunners travel away from home, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be their key to victory as he tops this list of three Arsenal players you can take in your fantasy team for this weekend.
