FPL: 5 players to watch in GW16 – Arsenal to continue good form?

The dust from the midweek round of games has barely settled but already it is time to turn our attention to another set of fixtures. The games come thick and fast at this time of year and as Premier League managers shuffle their packs, here are five players for you to consider to keep those arrows green.

It’s followed up by a trip to struggling Southampton before a home clash with Burnley. There’s therefore plenty of mileage in picking Arsenal’s main man who should be spared the rotation risk as Arsenal are already through in the Europa League and will surely play a shadow side next Thursday.
