FPL Show: Go for Lacazette as the main man

Arsenal forward can be a reliable points scorer as Fantasy managers scramble to pick the right front three

Managers in Fantasy Premier League are scrambling to find the right attacks for their teams, with six of the seven most-owned forwards being transferred out ahead of Gameweek 9.

In the latest FPL Show, Lee Bonfield of @FPLFamily recommends Alexandre Lacazette (£9.6m) as a reliable and powerful points scorer.

Four goals and four assists have earned the Arsenal striker 48 FPL points this season, five more than strike partner Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.7m), who has been pushed out wide by Arsenal head coach Unai Emery using Lacazette in the middle. 

"Lacazette is that main man now, the No 9," Lee says. "Since Emery's brought him in up top, being the main man, they've gone on a nine-match winning streak, which you can't argue with.

"He is their talisman right now. He seems to be the focal point of their attack."

But who should be combined with the Frenchman? Bonfield suggests FPL managers with their Wildcards active in Gameweek 9 should look to have Manchester City's Sergio Aguero (£11.3m) and Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.9m) to form a powerful front three.
