The Scout on why the Arsenal forward has the short-term schedule to flourish when FPL resumes next week

Arsenal's Double Gameweek 30+ immediately lifts the appeal of investing in their key players.

The Gunners are among the four sides set to play twice in that round of fixtures, visiting Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion.

They then face Southampton and Norwich City, two of the bottom seven sides, in the following two Gameweeks.

Influential figure

Aubameyang ranks second among forwards in FPL, with 152 points. He has scored 17 goals and assisted three more.

The Gabonese's influence has been key to Arsenal since Mikel Arteta was appointed head coach in Gameweek 19.

He has netted six times in eight matches under the Spaniard, at least four more than any team-mate.

Analysis on Aubameyang's ability

The underlying numbers show why Aubameyang has been such a big success.

His totals of 19 shots, 16 shots in the penalty area, and eight shots on target, are all team-leading under Arteta.

Aubameyang's security of starts could also be a key factor for FPL managers seeking a new forward.

He has started every match he has been available for Arteta, boosting his chances of profiting from the Gunners' upcoming schedule.

This makes Aubameyang a major option for the captaincy in Double Gameweek 30+.
