Aguero and Sané start for Man City as Sterling benched

Fantasy managers who put faith in Sergio Aguero (£11.4m) could be in for one of their most memorable Gameweeks.

The Manchester City forward has defied ‘Pep Roulette’ to start both matches of Double Gameweek 25, named on the team sheet to face Everton on Wednesday night.

The start comes after scoring 17 points in Sunday afternoon’s 3-1 win over Arsenal, in which Aguero scored a hat-trick.

Once again, we should expect a great divide between managers, depending which Manchester City options they backed.

Leroy Sané (£9.8m) comes back into the side after remaining an unused substitute at the weekend, but Raheem Sterling (£11.3m) travels in the opposite direction.

Kevin de Bruyne (£9.7m) is also named among the subsitutes.

Anyone invested in Aymeric Laporte (£5.9m) will be encouraged to know that he has been deployed at left-back.

However, Pep Guardiola is not the only Premier League manager wreaking havoc with Fantasy teams, as Everton have also rotated for this fixture.

The Toffees two most popular Fantasy midfielders Richarlison (£6.8m) and Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.4m) both find themselves on the bench as Marco Silva goes for a 4-3-3 system.

Everton XI: Pickford; Digne, Zouma, Keane, Kenny; Davies, Gueye, A Gomes; Bernard, Calvert-Lewin, Walcott.

Man City XI: Ederson; Laporte, Otamendi, Stones, Walker; D Silva, Gundogan, Fernandinho; Sané, Aguero, B Silva.

    You knew it was going to be had when Sane missed that volley in the 2nd minute.

        It'll be a goal fest.

    Just like to thank everyone on the scout team for their love for sane and suggestion that he was the most nailed on for minutes over the double game week.

    1. windowview

      This but unironically

    2. Robe Wan

      Be your own man Steve

    3. diesel001

      I think they said Bernardo was most nailed? Which is probably true.....

      Your the one pulling the trigger not them.

      I did the same move but won't blame those actually doing research, so that we dont have too.

      But understand your frustration

    5. Steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Watching the scout cast now. Anger and frustration is tempered by the fact they all did the same. At least they didn’t blatantly sell us all out.

    6. KingOllie
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      All the evidence pointed to him getting the most minutes. Its just fking bad luck

    7. Burger

      G'wan Steve, you tell 'em.

        It’s just so annoying. Got aguero too and did Capt him as we all knew Jesus would get at least one of the games didn’t we!?

  5. windowview
    • 3 Years

    Is Agüero still on the pitch? Not watching, plus I have Jesus

  6. VanDijksToWatchOutFor

    Just looked having held off all evening. Are you expletive deleted me, pep!?

  7. MGD

    107 counting baps. That’s with 13 pts on the bench and shipped Haz for Sane.

    Insane week...

    1. DA Minnion
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Should have been an out Sane week.

      1. MGD
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Yep, but got him on out of rage against Hazard triple blank vs bottom teams hehe

  8. DA Minnion
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Why is Aguero still on .

    1. V-2 Schneiderlin
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Pep has him as TC

      1. Slouch87

        FFS never disappoints with this one.

    Think I'm looking at my ninth red arrow in 11 despite playing my TC. At least I care less with each passing week....

  10. diesel001
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    These rage transfers to get Son in are ill-timed. How do you know Son isn't injured? What will you do if he is injured? Make another transfer?

    1. Steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Don’t care. Fuming now.

  12. Drogba Legend

    1 month, 17 days ago

    If I'm 50+ points down now in my ML (he TC'd Kun this GW):

    A) Hazard + Ings > Laca (differential) + 7.6 mid (Anderson/Bilva/Groß/other?)
    B) Hazard + Ings > Auba/Kun + 5.5ish midfielder

    Everyone above me has Auba.

    Cheers

  13. mattyb09

    Aguero to Auba in 3..2..1. Done!

    1. Mo Mané Mo Problems
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      With Kun rising?

      1. mattyb09
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Nope, just noticed that before. I'll pick up the 0.1 first.

    2. Zombanksy
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I'm thinking the same. What made you do it?

      1. mattyb09
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 17 days ago

        159 minutes. Would've kept him if Jesus started tonight.

        1. Zombanksy
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Good point. Hopefully Auba can do some damage against Huddersfield.

    3. CROCosta
      1 month, 17 days ago

      was thinking the same at first but rage transfered out sane for anderson, now to decide if i ditch jimenez, rashford or aguero for auba, could really use 4th fwd slot XD

  14. Totalfootball

    What happens if a player(insert Fernandinho) fouls the opposing player worthy of a yellow card but the referee plays advantage to book the player on stoppage of play , but the player commits another foul worthy of a 2nd yellow before the game can stop , is he now on a red card ?

    Genuine question

    1. MGD
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Yes. Think so

    2. Becks
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Yes

  15. The Mighty Hippo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Which one is best folks?

    a) Sane + Richarlison --> Mane + Anderson
    b) Sane + Richarlison --> Son + Anderson
    c) Sterling + Richarlison --> Mane + Son

    1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 2 Years

      C

  16. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Was looking at: Sterling / Ings > Jota / Aubameyang (-4)
    Now how about: Sané / Ings > Moutinho / Aubameyang (-4) ?

    1. Dacra
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I'm looking still at the first one, then Sane to Mane next week.

    Sane will never ever play for my fantasy team again. Bogey man...

    Saving grace is so many others captained Sane. Not alone, at least...?

    I don't know. I'm reaching here.

  23. diesel001
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Digne(c) >= Sane(c)?

  24. Top Lad Dakes.
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Don't be greedy, Sterling and especially Aguero owners/C'ers/TC'ers - many captained Salah or Sane, many didn't even own your aforementioned two.

    How important is saving a FT this week? Sane-> Son is tempting

    1. Peter Ouch

      Not at all, do it.
      Will do the same

      You're surely going to end up doing a transfer to get rid of a 27-blank player anyway, so might as well do it now
