The panel discuss their plans given the Gunners have no more Double Gameweeks this season

The Scout's panel of experts discuss whether Arsenal's lack of a Double Gameweek over the rest of the season is an incentive to bring in new faces in Fantasy Premier League.

Working out what to do about Arsenal is one of the biggest decisions for FPL managers. They have no more Doubles but are leading the league and are in excellent form. I will likely part company with Gabriel (£5.2m) on my Gameweek 30 Wildcard, but reluctantly. Even without Doubles I still want to hold my Arsenal attackers.

Arsenal have no other competitions to worry about for the rest of the season and will not blank in Gameweek 32, so if you are not planning to Free Hit then, you should look to retain at least one.

I think the defenders can be sold for picks such as Luke Shaw (£5.2m) and Ben Chilwell (£6.0m). Even Martin Odegaard (£6.9m) can go, but keep Bukayo Saka (£8.6m) in your team. He is on fire this season.

A plum home fixture against Leeds United in Gameweek 29 seems too good to miss. I'll be keeping my midfielders, but I would be tempted to sell Gabriel, my Arsenal defender. The Gunners have an annoying habit of conceding the odd goal when on home turf, with only two home clean sheets all season. A switch for a Double Gameweek 29 defender is on the cards.

Odegaard can be sold but Saka and Gabriel Martinelli (£6.6m) are in such good form that it's very possible they would outperform the player you replace them with.

Depending on your chip strategy, I quite like the idea of selling some of your Arsenal players. I sold Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.2m) last week and will be selling one of my Arsenal midfielders for Double Gameweek 29. You can bring them back on a Wildcard, or on a Free Hit for Gameweek 32 against Southampton at home.
