Taking a look at line-ups, goals, assists, clean sheets and anything else we could highlight that could have implications for FPL managers. We cover the Arsenal v Newcastle match report. Covering eye test and key moments through-out the match with the help of the Fantasy Football Scout members area.

Overviewing the Arsenal v Newcastle match report can be helpful in identifying key moments in the match. This can then give FPL managers a good insight into which players and teams looked good, key injuries, fitness and even more to help us make decisions in FPL.

Line-ups – Arsenal

Midfielder Bukayo Saka (£8.1m) starts the match after securing four returns in his last five matches. Gabriel Martinelli (£6.8m) also starts the match. The midfielder is in some great form this season and owners will be hoping that continues here.


Callum Wilson (£7.2m) returns after recovering from injury. The striker’s last return came in Gameweek 14 where he managed a massive 19-point haul. Defender Kieran Trippier (£6m) will be hoping to extend his great run of form to six FPL returns on the bounce.

Key moments – First half

  • CHANCE! Newcastle try to clear the ball from their box but the clearance bounces off Gabriel Martinelli and lands at the feet of midfielder Martin Odegaard (6.6m) who is in a great position to shoot but his shot is way over the bar.
  • CHANCE! Bukayo Saka finds space on the right and darts past the Newcastle defence, finds a shot inside the box but its an easy save for the goalkeeper.
  • Arsenal are threatening early on.
