GW2 Ones to watch: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

The Scout says Arsenal forward is a big armband option at home to a Burnley side he has scored three consecutive braces against

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 2 of Fantasy Premier League.   

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS) £11.0m

The Arsenal striker has a prolific record against this weekend's visitors to Emirates Stadium, Burnley.

Since moving to north London in January 2018, Aubameyang has faced the Clarets on three occasions and scored twice in each of those matches.

Aubameyang proved the difference in Arsenal’s encounter with Newcastle United on the opening weekend.

The Gabon international scored the only goal of the match at St James’ Park on Sunday.

That earned six points in FPL for a player who is owned by 27.8 per cent of managers.

Aubameyang's underlying statistics from Gameweek 1 further highlight his attacking potential.

He had four shots inside the penalty area, second only to the six of Harry Kane (£11.0m).

But Kane’s trip to Manchester City this weekend is likely to play a big part in the captaincy decision of FPL managers.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker will go head to head with another in-form attacker, Raheem Sterling (£12.1m).

And that can raise the appeal of Aubameyang as a standout option for the Gameweek 2 armband.

Generous guests?

Arsenal will be encouraged by the Clarets’ defensive vulnerability away from home.

In away matches last season, Sean Dyche’s men faced 366 shots, more than any other side.

Aubameyang has the eye for goal to profit from those frailties again and richly reward those who captain him for Gameweek 2.
