Fantasy football tips: Is Aubameyang the man for gameweek eight?

This is another interesting item!

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could become the first Arsenal player to score eight goals in the first eight games of a Premier League season since Dennis Bergkamp in 1997-98Flying high? Or just one more bad week away from throwing in the towel for another season? With another international break just around the corner, it’s perhaps time to keep cool and avoid any rash decisions before two weeks of inevitable fantasy football contemplation and re-evaluation. So, is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the man? Who should you back for Brendan Rodgers’ Anfield return? And what to do about Kevin de Bruyne?Here, BBC Sport tries to help you pick your team for gameweek eight.Listen: Radio 5 Live’s Fantasy 606 podcastAubameyang to pick off the CherriesPep Guardiola’s infamous rotation tendencies caused more chaos for fantasy managers last weekend, as the Premier League’s top scorer Sergio Aguero took his turn on the bench.It’s an issue that is set to repeatedly sting us throughout the season – so where else might we turn to if the unpredictability all gets too much?Step forward, Aubameyang. Arsenal have a 100% home record against Sunday’s opponents Bournemouth – while Eddie Howe’s visitors have been hit for five in each of their past three visits to London by Crystal Palace, Arsenal and Tottenham.Even more ominous for a Cherries side yet to keep a Premier League clean sheet in 2019-20 is that Aubameyang loves playing on Sundays. Like, he seriously loves Sundays.While his record of eight goals in his last six Premier League games played on a Sunday is impressive enough, incredibly, 26 of his 39 Premier League goals to date have come on that day. That’s the highest ratio of goals scored on that day in the competition’s history (among players with at least 20 goals).

Five goals in his last four in the league, paired with Arsenal’s rather favourable upcoming fixtures, make Aubameyang – on paper, of course – an excellent alternative for the armband.Speaking on BBC Radio 5
