With Double Gameweek 23 on the horizon, The Scout's panel of Fantasy Premier League experts discuss which Arsenal players FPL managers should look to bring in ahead of the deadline of 11:00 GMT on Saturday 11 February.

My biggest regret during the unlimited transfer window was not keeping Bukayo Saka (£8.3m). This season Saka has returned 111 points, with 35 of those coming since the restart. Returns in four of the last six means he is the standout Arsenal pick as well as a genuine alternative to the Erling Haaland (£12.2m) captaincy.

I also really like Gabriel (£5.2m) for DGW23. He has the best attacking numbers from Arsenal's defence. While a clean sheet doesn't necessarily look likely against Manchester City, Gabriel's potential for points at both ends of the pitch makes him a great pick.

Saka remains my top pick because he's likely on penalties and very involved in everything. Two home matches means Arsenal should come back strong following their 1-0 defeat at Everton

Martin Odegaard (£7.0m) is one of those players you keep faith with long term as minutes and points will come. Over the Double, Odegaard and Saka should have the highest expected minutes of all attackers. They are my top two picks.

Eddie Nketiah's (£6.7m) numbers since the FIFA World Cup 2022 have been exceptional. For as long as Gabriel Jesus (£7.9m) is out, I want Nketiah in my team.

Nketiah has done a great job deputising for Jesus - his attacking stats before the Everton match were top across most metrics. Elsewhere, with penalty duties in his locker, I'd go for Saka.

I'm struggling to fit him at his price point in my team, so I'm likely to go without - he'll be a big concern for me if I go into the DGW23 without Arsenal's main man.

From the Arsenal defence, I quite like Gabriel as a pick as he has a substantial set-piece threat in addition to clean-sheet potential.

Odegaard offers a combination of goal and assist threat, and is great for bonus points as well. He is the best Arsenal pick for DGW23.

I also like Nketiah, who has been getting all the big chances for Arsenal. His underlying numbers are the best in their team.
