Should FPL managers own Aguero or Sterling?

Raheem Sterling’s 21-point haul against Southampton in Gameweek 11 has caused a disturbance in the Fantasy Premier League force.

There are plenty of managers who are weighing up whether he is a better option than the highly-owned Sergio Aguero. His 7.7% ownership means there is a potential opportunity to get him in now and use him as a powerful differential before the masses cotton on.

So we’ve compared the two individuals over the course of the campaign to find out which one is worth having and how Fantasy managers should handle Sterling’s recent explosion of points.

    Guys, I dropped from top spot last week, need some advice on this team:
    Ryan (Patricio)
    Robertson Alonso Trippier (Shaw Doherty)
    Fraser DSilva Maddison Hazard (Pererya)
    Arnie Murray Aguero

    Thoughts appreciated.

      Great squad but you’ll end up with points on the bench. I’d go a bit bolder and bring in a low value bench fodder for one of the defenders or midfielders, then look at upgrading Dilva to Mane or Maddison to Rich/Sigs

    One last time.
    Shaq for Rich?
    I have no salah or mane
    Shaq should start right?

      that's what I've done

      it's a big gamble but I don't want to splash the cash on Salah or Mane and weaken elsewhere
