GW38+ Selection: Back Aubameyang for big haul

The Scout 23 Jul 2020

Arsenal striker scored twice in the reverse fixture with Watford and is included in line-up captained by Raheem Sterling

A home match with Watford gives Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) the chance to enjoy a successful end to 2019/20 Fantasy Premier League.

The Arsenal striker is three goals behind Jamie Vardy (£9.7m) in the race for the Golden Boot award.

And his record against the Hornets looks encouraging for his 22.4 per cent ownership.

Since joining the Gunners, he has been involved in five of their eight goals against Watford.

Aubameyang is the vice-captain in a Selection that lines up in a 3-5-2 formation, with Raheem Sterling (£12.0m) given the armband.

Emiliano Martinez (ARS) £4.4m

The Arsenal goalkeeper has averaged 4.4 points per match since being handed his first start in Gameweek 31+.

Martinez hosts a Watford side that have scored just a single goal in their last five away matches.

James Tarkowski (BUR) £5.5m

Two goals, three assists and 15 clean sheets have helped the Burnley centre-back into fifth place among FPL defenders.

Tarkowski’s all-round potential could bring in another big return as the Clarets entertain Brighton & Hove Albion.

Serge Aurier (TOT) £5.1m

The Tottenham Hotspur defender visits Crystal Palace on the back of four clean sheets and four bonus points in his last seven matches.

Aurier has also produced one goal and seven assists this season, highlighting his potential at both ends of the pitch.

Jack Stephens (SOU) £4.4m

Southampton’s centre-back offers great value at home to Sheffield United.

The Blades have struggled in attack on their travels, scoring only one goal in their last five away matches.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.5m

Liverpool’s Egyptian faces a Newcastle United side with just one clean sheet in seven matches.

Salah has a reliable record against the Magpies, scoring in each of his last four meetings.

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £12.0m

The most-bought player in the Gameweek, he has earned more than 110,000 new owners for Manchester City’s home match with Norwich City.

Sterling has four double-figure hauls and 66 points in the last six Gameweeks.

Anthony Martial (MUN) £8.5m

Manchester United’s Frenchman visits Leicester City in his most consistent form of the season.

Martial has scored six goals and supplied five assists in his last seven Gameweeks, totalling 70 points in that time.

David Silva (MCI) £7.5m

The Spaniard faces Norwich on the back of some superb home form.

Silva has 39 points in his last three at the Etihad Stadium and looks a strong armband option in his final domestic match for Man City.

Michail Antonio (WHU) £7.1m

His eight goals in eight Gameweeks have helped steer West Ham United to Premier League safety.

Still owned by just 5.1 per cent of managers, Antonio can thrive once again at home to Aston Villa.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS) £10.9m

The Arsenal striker scored twice to claim 13 points in his previous meeting with Watford.

Chris Wood (BUR) £6.2m

Recent strikes against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Norwich were his first back-to-back goals since Gameweek 24.

Wood can profit from Brighton’s weakness in defending headed efforts at Turf Moor on Sunday.

What the experts say

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): Despite the favourable match-up against Watford, I'm not high on Aubameyang given the price, I'd rather go with Marcus Rashford (£8.9m), who has more to play for on the final day.

Ben McNair (@drbenmcnair): A great selection as always, but I would include Riyad Mahrez (£8.6m). The potential is there for Man City to earn a big win against Norwich. Mahrez saw very few minutes in the midweek thrashing of Watford, so we can be relatively sure he will start on Sunday. I would pick him ahead of Martial or Silva.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): Surprised Pope isn't in goal but a solid team with lots of players with potential for double figures.

Paul Gee (@FPLPaulGee): A great-looking team that includes Aubameyang, however I think it is lacking a Spurs attacker against a very poor Palace side.

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): Plenty to think about here for those on Free Hit. Given the choice of premium forwards, I fancy Harry Kane (£10.9m) to get more points.

Remember the GW38+ deadline is on Sunday at 15:00 BST.
