Nketiah is expected to start up front after Arsenal's first-choice striker, Gabriel Jesus (£8.0m), was injured during the FIFA World Cup 2022.

The 23-year-old’s displays towards the end of last season look encouraging for his Fantasy prospects.

Nketiah started all of the Gunners' final eight matches, scoring five goals and delivering two double-figure hauls.

Indeed, his total of 40 points in that period was more than any team-mate.


The underlying numbers across that run further highlight his goal threat.

Nketiah’s 18 shots in the box, five big chances and 12 shots on target all placed top for Arsenal. 

Defensive weakness

West Ham, meanwhile, have struggled defensively on their travels.

They visit Emirates Stadium with only one away clean sheet in 2022/23.

As the hosts’ lone forward, Nketiah can exploit those frailties and offer managers a budget-friendly route into the league leaders’ attack.
