FPL Sunday review: Aubameyang thrives up front

Arsenal star, who is listed as a midfielder in Fantasy, scores hat-trick in striker's role

A move up front for Arsenal looks set to revive the impact of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.3m) in Fantasy Premier League.

The Gabonese scored a hat-trick in the Gunners’ 4-2 home win over Leeds United on Sunday, recording his season-high haul of 20 points.

Aubameyang's treble

Having played on the left flank since Mikel Arteta took charge, Aubameyang is listed as a midfielder in Fantasy.

Owned by just 6.6 per cent, he could now prove a major differential if he remains up front. 

But interest in the Arsenal attacker could be limited by a testing upcoming schedule.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), three of his next four matches score four.

26 LEI (A) 4

28 TOT (H) 4

Leeds winger Raphinha (£5.3m) continued his strong run of form with an assist at Emirates Stadium.

The Brazilian has produced attacking returns in each of his last five outings, totalling 38 points.

He looks outstanding value ahead of his Double Gameweek 25 against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton.

Ings hitting form?

Saints striker Danny Ings (£8.4m) also plays twice in Gameweek 25, facing Chelsea at home before a visit to Elland Road.

He was on the scoresheet in Sunday's 2-1 home defeat to Wolves, netting his first goal since Gameweek 17.

Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves (£5.1m) claimed his season-high haul of 13 points in that match.

The Portuguese converted a penalty and also supplied an assist, earning the maximum three bonus points.

All four of his goals this season, as well as his single assist, have come in his last seven outings.

Southampton 1-2 Wolves highlights

Elsewhere, Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m) extended his lead at the top of the player standings by scoring his 14th goal of the season. 

Manchester United’s playmaker picked up nine points in a 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion, while his team-mate Luke Shaw (£5.0m) also impressed once again.

The left-back’s assist for Fernandes’s strike means he has produced four of his five assists this season in the last three Gameweeks.

Finally, Fulham pair Josh Maja (£5.5m) and Ola Aina (£4.5m) emerged as hugely successful differentials in the first match of their Double Gameweek 24.

Both were owned in fewer than 0.5 per cent of squads for their matches against Everton and Burnley.

Maja scored both goals to return 13 points in the 2-0 win at Goodison Park, while Aina combined an assist with a clean sheet for an 11-point haul.
