Matchday number 12 is upon us and the biggest game of the weekend takes place at Old Trafford, where Manchester United is set to welcome Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal teammates, one of the most terrifying squads in Europe right now.
This is a must win game for both teams, especially for the Gunners, so they’re going to need everyone at their best level if they want to steal the three points at Manchester this Saturday and finally end Mourinho’s dominance over Wenger and continue this nightmare of a season for the Portuguese boss.
So, we’ll take a look at the top 3 fantasy picks from Arsenal for this Saturday’s game, so try to adjust your budget in order to make room for these guys that’ll most likely make you jump to the top of your fantasy league after the end of the week.
This one was a no-brainer, and you probably already own the Chilean. The speedster is on a run right now, and he netted a couple of goals during this international break for his national team against Luis Suarez’s Uruguay.
Alexis is reportedly stalling his renovation talks and he’s more than ready to prove to every single team in the world that he’s worth a big investment, as he’s looking for a huge paycheck from a contending team for the upcoming season.
Besides, Mourinho’s reportedly going to make some changes on his defence as he’s tired of Luke Shaw and Chris Smalling, so Alexis could feast if that experiment doesn’t go Mourinho’s way.
Another no brainer. The German is playing the best football of his career and he’ll be facing an improvised defence, and given how outstanding his level has been during the past month, look for Mesut to bring his A-game once again to Old Trafford this Saturday.
Besides, he’ll be up for a revenge game against Jose Mourinho, as things didn’t end up the best way for both of them during their tenure at Real Madrid when Ozil asked for a transfer on the verge of the closing of the transfer market.
Playing alongside Theo Walcott and Alexis, look for Ozil to record at least one assist during this match.
Arsenal’s defence looks completely renewed since the German arrived from Valencia a couple of months ago, and since Zlatan Ibrahimovic is suspended for this match and Anthony Martial has played so poorly, look for another clean sheet for Cech and his boys.
This one is going to be a low-scoring game given how Mourinho tends to plan his match against great offensive sides like Arsenal, so owning a gunner for your defence would be the right move to do if you want to score some easy points.
Mustafi won’t be as expensive as other choices for your defence, and his offensive game in the aerial duels may even get you a goal this Saturday, but mainly expect the German centre back to completely shut down Manchester United’s offence.
