Our Fantasy Picks for GW1


Ivanovic Mertesacker Cedric

Walcott Lallana Hazard Barkley

Costa van-Wolfswinkel Rooney

Leicester are a good shout to keep a clean sheet against Sunderland.
Chelsea are the big guns and can't / shouldn't be overlooked.
Lallana & Walcott are fantasticly good pre-season.
S'hampton play the dreadful Newcastle, who will be booed off their home park in GW1.
Everton are likely to put a few past Watford & Barkley is good value.
van Wolfswinkel put a few away in preseason & knows where goal is.
Man Utd have epic mids now, and Rooney is the sole forward.

Harmonic Ozil-lator

On the last day of the transfer window, Arsenal signed Metsul Ozil. Ozil is the best player to enter the EPL this season and will thrive under Arsenal's short passing system.

Lets compare Ozil against another international legend:

Metsul Ozil @ Real Madrid
350 games
59 goals
143 assists

Andres Iniesta @ Barcelona
569 games
52 goals
83 assists

So, he's good. And prolific, particularly at creating goals for others. He will be the focal creative point at Arsenal like he is for Germany. For Germany in 29 appearances he scored 12 goals and gave 19 assists. Arsenal will look to get the ball at his feet at every opportunity, and he can allude defenders better than anyone; his vision is impeccable.

Slipping passes to play the quicker players through; that is classic Ozil. Which will be perfect for Walcott's pace and Giroud as the main target man.

All this excellent teamwork may come at the cost of his FPL output. While he will definitely be earning a lot of assists and no doubt goals, he will probably be creating more chances for others around him. Carzola/Oxlade and Walcott will play wide of him, and of course Giroud will strongly benefit from Ozil's excellence.

Arsenal now have an excellent run of fixtures through until gameweek 10. Ozil will enhance the prospects of the Gunners attackers, and at this point I must have at least one Arsenal attacked is a must - if not two. And by me, I mean you.
