FDR Analysis: Arsenal offer short-term differentials

The Scout says low-owned Gunners players can make an impact over coming matches

Managers on the lookout for differentials in Fantasy Premier League should consider Arsenal’s key players over the coming period.

The Gunners have won three of their last four matches in all competitions, scoring three goals in each of those victories.

Yet all of their players are owned by under 10 per cent of managers in Fantasy.

Crucially, Arsenal are among only eight sides set to play in Blank Gameweek 29, visiting West Ham United

In the following Gameweek, they entertain a Liverpool side who have just one clean sheet in their last 10 matches. 

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of their subsequent two matches, against Sheffield United and Fulham, score just two. 

Attacking options

A move up front has revived the output of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.4m).

Listed as a midfielder in Fantasy, he has six goals in his last four Gameweek starts and is their standout captaincy pick. 

Bukayo Saka (£5.3m) and Martin Odegaard (£5.9m) offer cut-price routes into Arsenal's improving attack.

Four of Saka’s five goals this season, and all four of his assists, have come from Gameweek 15 onwards.

Odegaard’s opening goal in Thursday's 3-1 UEFA Europa League win over Olympiacos suggests he is finding his form after arriving on loan in January. 

In defence, Kieran Tierney (£5.2m) produced an 18-point haul against West Bromwich Albion in Gameweek 17, highlighting his explosive potential.
