Arsenal’s 2-0 FA Cup win over Sutton United will have a major impact on the plans of Fantasy Premier League managers, with the Gunners now due to miss two of the next three Gameweeks.

Arsene Wenger’s side beat their non-league opponents thanks to goals from Lucas Perez (£7.8m) and Theo Walcott (£7.4m), as Granit Xhaka (£5.2m) and Alex Iwobi (£6.0m) supplied assists. 

last night’s victory means that the Gunners’ Gameweek 28 home encounter with Leicester City has been postponed to a later date, yet to be confirmed.

Arsenal are already without a fixture in Gameweek 26 as their opponents, Southampton, are in the EFL Cup final.

This leaves the Gunners with only one match in the next three rounds of fixtures – a Gameweek 27 trip to Liverpool.

Sales of Alexis Sanchez (£11.7m) have subsequently picked up pace.

Owned by 34% of managers, the Chilean is the most transferred-out midfielder since the previous deadline, with 76,000+ seeking alternatives.

Sanchez is also second only to Manchester City’s injured Gabriel Jesus (£9.2m) for sales over the last 24 hours.

After scoring twice in Liverpool’s win over Tottenham Hotspur last time out, Sadio Mane (£9.3m) has proved the most popular direct replacement for Sanchez.
