Best Arsenal Players to Pick for DGW23

Arsenal sit 5 points clear at the top of the table, and in double gameweek 23 have two fixtures.

They face Brentford and Man City, both at home.

So many of their players are great FPL assets, but you can only choose three, so here are the best ones to transfer in.

Bukayo Saka

  • Price: £8.3m
  • Picked by: 27%
  • Points: 111

Saka has been fantastic this season, providing 15 attacking returns so far.

He has 7 goals, with an xG of 5.8, which ranks him 6th highest of all midfielders.

Also, he’s been very good at setting up others, getting 8 assists (second most), playing 47 key passes (5th most), producing 89 shot-creating actions (fourth most), and 15 goal-creating actions (second most).

Additionally, he has the most carries into the penalty area, with 46.

With a double this week any Arsenal asset has a chance to score big points, but if there are going to be goals then Saka will likely be involved.

Saka is in most managers’ estimations the best Arsenal player to bring in for DGW23 and we can’t disagree.

Martin Odegaard

  • Price: £7.0m
  • Picked by: 35%
  • Points: 119

Not many predicted Odegaard to be Arsenal’s top scorer this term, scoring 8 times and earning 119 FPL points.

He has 6 assists too, with an xA of 6.1 (fourth highest).

The Norwegian has made 41 key passes (7th most), 89 shot-creating actions, and 11 goal-creating actions (both fourth most).

Scoring 119 points at £7.0m he has the fourth most points per million in the game (17), averaging 6.3 per match, making him a great value for money transfer.

Eddie Nketiah

  • Price: £6.7m
  • Picked by: 9%
  • Points: 44

Since Gabriel Jesus injured his knee at the World Cup Nketiah has been immense, scoring four times.

Per 90, that averages out at 0.52 non-penalty goals (9th most), taking 3.8 shots too, including 1.7 on target (both fourth most).

However, Jesus’ eventual return could relegate Nketiah to the bench, with the Brazilian possibly returning to action in the next few weeks.

But on the other hand, Nketiah’s form may keep him in the team.

Gabriel Martinelli

  • Price: £6.6m
  • Picked by: 40%
  • Points: 103

With 40% ownership Martinelli is Arsenal’s most-owned player and has 7 goals and 5 assists.

The Brazilian has an xA of 5.6 (5th highest), providing 80 shot-creating actions (6th most) and 11 goal-creating actions (fourth most).

His form has been dipping lately, with his last attacking return coming in GW18, even being hauled off on 58 minutes against Everton at the weekend.

Also, the signing of Leandro Trossard may reduce his minutes as the Belgian is very experienced and can provide similar levels of quality to Martinelli.

This has resulted in him actually being transferred out more than in, despite the double gameweek!


  • Price: £5.2m
  • Picked by: 14%
  • Points: 88

Arsenal have a good defence and two home games, so owning one of their defenders is a must.

The Gunners have conceded 17 times (second fewest) and kept 9 clean sheets (second most).

What makes Gabriel their most exciting defensive asset is his goal threat.

He has the highest xG out of defenders this campaign (2.8), scoring twice so far.

Furthermore, based on our points predictor tool, Gabriel comes highest out of all Arsenal defenders.

Benjamin White

  • Price: £4.7m
  • Picked by: 14%
  • Points: 86

A cheaper alternative to Gabriel is Benjamin White, costing just £4.7m.

He has two assists and has played the third most passes into the final third (139) and 139 progressive passes (fourth most).

White often gets forward and overlaps but he mainly holds his position and supports Saka behind.

He is the most valuable player at Arsenal, scoring 18.3 points per million, so he might be worth getting over Gabriel due to it sparing some budget to be used elsewhere.

With another attractive double coming in GW25, a triple up on Arsenal players is a must!
