What to do with Aguero after back-to-back home hat-tricks

A second hat-trick in as many home matches has thrown Sergio Aguero (£11.5m) to the forefront of Fantasy Premier League once again.

The Manchester City forward has already been snapped up by 135,000+ managers despite his next league match not taking place for another 16 days.

Whether he should feature in our long-term plans is the focus of this latest Scout Notes article.

Manchester City 6-0 Chelsea

Goals: Raheem Sterling x2 (£11.3m), Sergio Aguero x3 (£11.5m), Ilkay Gündogan (£5.4m)

Assists: Oleksandr Zinchenko x2 (£4.7m), Sterling

Aguero’s Fantasy potential for the coming months was fully demonstrated on Sunday afternoon, and the truly ominous thing is that he could have easily scored more than a 17-point haul. He took all the headlines for the hat-trick, but he also missed a first-half sitter at the back post and hit the cross-bar with a header in the second half.

Statistically, Aguero was the dominant force against Chelsea, top of the charts for total shots and efforts in the box in the match, and was also afforded four chances considered to be big by Opta.

“He said to me that he saw Kepa coming quick to close the space and he wanted [to be] more precise, close to the post and then he missed it. I told him ‘don’t do it again!’ but after his reaction was a little bit better.” – Pep Guardiola

Two 17-point hauls in three matches for the Argentinian have set off alarm bells for those not in possession of him. No player has more shots on target in their last four matches than Aguero and only Fernando Llorente (£5.7m) has registered more goal attempts in the penalty box. The case for Aguero is now strong, without a doubt.

The fact that Manchester City have no fixture in Blank Gameweek 27 gives Fantasy managers some time before having to make a call on him. In the last four matches, he has proved without a shadow of a doubt that he is no longer under threat of rotation from Gabriel Jesus (£10.0m). It took some time to dispel this fear for some, an understandable worry considering that Aguero’s Brazilian colleague has nine goals in eight games. At any other club, Jesus would be starting more regularly. However, Aguero has now started eight of the last nine Premier League matches to cast off any doubts over his place in the side, especially with Manchester City neck-and-neck with Liverpool in the title race.

The fact that he is not completing matches regularly is obviously not a concern either. Three of the last four occasions that Aguero has been substituted have been after finding the net and putting his side in a winning position.

So with West Ham (home), Bournemouth (away), and Watford (home) the next three for Manchester City after the blank, it looks as if Aguero will be an important player to own for that run of matches. For that reason, benching him for Gameweek 27 may be a popular tactic for his 31% ownership. Long-term he looks like he could continue to be an important option with the possibility of another Triple Captain opportunity if Manchester City progress far enough in the FA Cup, although the fixture schedule could prove too much for Guardiola not to rest him from time to time if they go deep into the Champions League, which returns this week.

Raheem Sterling (£11.3m) overtook Leroy Sané (£9.5m) in the Manchester City midfield pecking order with his third double-figure haul in five outings. He has now started 10 of the last 12 Premier League games for Manchester City, while his direct competition Riyad Mahrez (£8.2m) has just three starts in that run. Meanwhile, his German colleague was benched for the second time in three matches, having strayed offside a frustrating number of times against Everton.

Sterling could not quite compete with Aguero for goal threat, as has often been the case in recent weeks, but was slightly more creative, playing two key passes. The Englishman continues to show that he is an option who clinically makes the most of his passes and shots. Only Chris Wood (£6.2m) overperformed more than Sterling in Gameweek 26 according to expected goals (xG data). In their last four matches, 34 players had more shots on target than him and 17 have created more chances, but since Gameweek 23, Sterling has averaged eight points per game. He will, therefore, continue to be the go-to man in midfield for Manchester City once Gameweek 27 is out of the way.

No other option in that position can compete with him whether it comes to the regularity of starts of points potential. Ilkay Gündogan (£5.4m) and Bernardo Silva (£7.5m) proved their importance to Guardiola by being selected in midfield for all three of the games across Gameweeks 25 and 26 but combined for just one attacking return, the former’s goal against Chelsea. Bernardo can consider himself a little unlucky not to have picked up two assists in Gameweek 26, his pass for Aguero deflected away from him to Sterling for the first goal, and it was his cross that was spurned by the Argentinian so shockingly at the back post. However, the Portuguese international has often been more of a facilitator for assist-makers than a true creator this season.

Kevin de Bruyne (£9.7m) and David Silva (£8.5m) still don’t offer the same level of assurances when it comes to team selection this season. Each of them was dropped for one of the last three matches, the Belgian, still not at 100% after injury, against Everton and Silva for the Chelsea match, who was always going to play less often in 2018/19 according to Guardiola.

“There are many [considerations]. Of course, we could play other players but it’s three games a week. They are a strong, strong team in terms of quality and physicality, especially in the middle. Nico[las Otamendi] could have played, he was outstanding in the last two games, David as well as always. Today I decide for this line-up.” – Pep Guardiola

In defence, Double Gameweek 25 star Aymeric Laporte (£5.9m) kept his place in the team once again but was back in more familiar surroundings. Guardiola selected him at centre-back, after two outings on the left, while John Stones (£5.2m) played alongside him, with Oleksandr Zinchenko (£4.7m) and Kyle Walker (£6.4m) on the flanks.

On the receiving end of their worst Premier League defeat since a 7-0 thrashing by Nottingham Forest in 1991, Chelsea were truly dreadful at the back. So many of the goals conceded came from Blues’ errors or the defence making questionable decisions. Nobody picked up Sterling for his opening goal, Aguero’s second came after Ross Barkley (£5.1m) headed the ball back into the danger area and there was no marker for Gündogan when he picked up a loose ball from an Antonio Rüdiger (£6.0m) tackle on the edge of the box for his strike. Maurizio Sarri admitted at the end of the match that he did not understand why his side lost so heavily.

“We need to understand the reason (why it isn’t working). It is not easy. At the beginning we played better away than at home, now we are playing better at home rather than away. Something has changed, at the moment I am not able to see the reason, but I have to work for this. My target is to play my football, it is not to change to another football. At the moment we are playing another football.” – Maurizio Sarri

While the Italian has focussed on the motivation of his players recently, he did not lay the blame there this time around. He would have had a strong case to do so as once Chelsea were 1-0 down after four minutes most of their energy was instantly drained from them, especially in midfield and defence.

“No, I don’t think (it’s about motivation). My feeling during the week was really very good, yesterday during the meeting it was really very good, during the warm-up it was really very good, so, my feeling was that for this match the motivation was the right level. I think we started well, we conceded after four minutes in a stupid way. In that moment we had to only stay in the match, we weren’t able to because we made a lot of mistakes against the wrong opponents. We have to say also that they played really a fantastic football game.” – Maurizio Sarri

There was a spell towards the end of the first half where Chelsea strung together some decent attacking play. While it came to nothing, there was some positives to take from the performances of Gonzalo Higuaín (£9.5m) in this period. Aguero was actually the only player to register more goal attempts in the match than his compatriot. Furthermore, the player to create the most chances at the Etihad Stadium was Eden Hazard (£10.8m).

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko; Gündogan, Fernandinho (D Silva 75′), De Bruyne (Mahrez 68′); B Silva, Agüero (Jesus 65′), Sterling.

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Rüdiger, David Luiz, Alonso (Emerson 73′); Kanté, Jorginho, Barkley (Kovačić 52′); Pedro (Loftus-Cheek 65′), Higuaín, Hazard.

    Two things that imo are important on what to do with Kun.
    a)How much will his price rise in the next 3 weeks? Especially for those like me who bought him at 11.2.Now his price is 11.5. He could easily rise to 11.7 in the next 3 weeks.
    b)The result of ManUtd-Liverpool could affect positive or negative ManCity.

    1. Would Ed Woodward
        5 months, 10 days ago

        If you have him, I'd add C) How much will Auba fall?

          Auba is for 2 games imo.I prefer to own Kane/Kun from gw28 and after.

            Yeah. It's why I'm holding with an Auba + Kun front line, to make the switch to Kun / Kane easier. Just need Auba not to drop too much so a haul next GW required.

          2. Would Ed Woodward
              5 months, 10 days ago

              I agree, I just mean there's already been a 0.2 swing for me Auba to Kun and it looks like increasing.

          imo value isn't too important, as we're deep into the second half of the season. Focus is now purely on points

          Even though I'm an owner and very happy with his hauls, I'm not very happy about these inexplicable price rises. Prices me out of adding Lacazette to my team.

          1. Pierce34
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 10 days ago

            Unless of course I add Lacazette and go without Aguero in the future.

          I echo this, having bought at 11.3. If I switch to Auba, can I really feel comfortable not having Aguero for West Ham? To buy him back again could cost me 0.2 or 0.3 if he goes up to 11.6/11.7.

          I think I may call it a day on the hokey cokey, and just do Hazard>Son instead. I need to sell either or Richarlison to get XI out, but have only 0.7m ITB to upgrade Rich. Makes sense to call time on Chelsea assets as they look as big a mess as Utd were under Jose. Can't lose really, bagged my Hazard haul, BGW, time to move on to pastures new.

          Salah, Aguero, Son and Pogba gives you the main cog of each of he top four contenders really.

          Value shouldn't be ignored, but it's silly to throw money away.

          I'd say if you are moving Kun-Auba/Laca and back again then it's more about transfers.

          I am only considering shipping Kun because I have 2FTs and I will hold Auba/Laca for 2 weeks.

          For me, without a wildcard, every FT is very precious.

      • balint84
        • 3 Years

        Kane or Kun?

        1. Demel
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 10 days ago

          What is the question?

          1. balint84
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 10 days ago

            after next gameweek who to buy?

            1. Demel
              • 7 Years
              5 months, 10 days ago

              It depends if Kun is fit. The clever move may be to own both.

        2. Would Ed Woodward
            5 months, 10 days ago

            Kun for me. Lethal form, reinvigorated City chasing the title, cheaper. Also a worry that Kane will be rushed back from injury too quickly.

              I'm going to claim this as the perfect sentence to use to see if someone plays FPL.
              To anyone else in the world, eyebrows will be raised.

              What’s wrong with Fabianski? Got decent fixtures coming up. Sane for sure and Digne I would lose with 2ft

                Money in the bank and potentially better options out there in the likes of DDG and Allison.

                Pereria looked decent yesterday. Midfield is tricky, I have mane in at the minute as think Liverpool’s next 6 are great but obviously a tough game this gw so maybe not best timing. Felipe Anderson could be another option

                1. Demel
                  • 7 Years
                  5 months, 10 days ago

                  I agree about Mane but I think TAA may be the better option with the double up. Perreria is a decent option but I am not sure I want him over TAA.

            3. Amey
                5 months, 10 days ago

                Sane to Mane/Jota/Gross
                Digne to Pereira/Chilwell/Maguire
                Play Camarasa. ??

                1. Demel
                  • 7 Years
                  5 months, 10 days ago

                  That might be the way. Currently thinking Sane/Digne > Eriksen/TAA

              • Demel
                • 7 Years
                5 months, 10 days ago

                I am also throwing about the idea of doing Rashford/Sane > Kane/Gross. A bit of a something different. Would give me..

                Fab
                TAA/Robbo/Doc
                Salah/Pogba/Groß/Son
                Kane/Kun/Jimenez

              • Would Ed Woodward
                  5 months, 10 days ago

                  Can you afford to switch Sane to Sterling? Possibly Sane to Anderson for a one week punt with Fulham(H) then switch him to Sterling? Starting AWB and Cama doesn't look like the worst thing in the world next week as long as Cama starts, came off bench last game after recovering from injury afaik.

                Bottomed:

                Looking at doing the following, in bits, starting with GW28:

                KdB + Auba + Danilo + Robbo

                to

                Sterling + Aguero + 4.7 + TAA

                1). Yea or nay?
                2). Which 4.7?

                      So FH in the first blank?
                      The transfers didn't make sense if you were WCing week 34, as you are not they look like good transfers.
                      I would keep the second blank in mind so that you can field at least 7 players.
                      Not convinced that Robbo to TAA is the best use of a transfer, maybe there is some other way of transferring value without getting rid of a player who plays week 33.

                          Well, not in the first one - next week I actually have a full 11 barring injuries. But the first big one, yeah (do we have a total of three? hard to keep up). I was planning on banking this week's transfer to (-4) next week, as I don't need to drop Danilo to make numbers work, I don't think.

                          TAA is just a way to preserve Liverpool defensive cover - assuming, of course, he's fully back.

                      Pereira costed Leister 2 goals in last two matches.
                      Pogba-Rashford goal
                      Llorente-Eriksen goal

                      Hopefully he won't be dropped.
                      OR am I just overthinking ??

                        I’m going for Maguire over him. Nailed and has a slab for a head

                            Yeah. Great goalscoring threat.

                            Overthinking, is there even a viable alternative in his position?

                              Does Sterling or Aguero play more minutes if City have two doubles in GW33 and 35?

                                    Got 2 FT's, how does Alonso/Sane/Success to Aguero/Hojberg and one of TAA/Kolasinac/Pereira sound (or another DEF under £5.3m) ? Could just do 2 transfers and have the money ITB to do Success to Aguero (talk about an upgrade!), depending on how much prices rise before the next deadline

                                        Pereira for those fixtures, cheap Arsenal cover would be good but they can't keep clean sheets so :/

                                            Please don't put words in my mouth. If Arsenal are struggling to keep clean sheets a cheap defender from their team is not as tempting a prospect. Under those circumstances, with two attacking full backs of reasonable popularity among the FF community I would rather favour the team with superior fixtures (Leicester)

                                                Wouldn't say arsenal is a tough fixture for a forward. Literally never keep a clean sheet. Man u Vs Liverpool has goals all over it.

                                              I fear a little rotation with Martial / Lukaku and Sanchez

                                              I liked the comment that is suicidal

                                                  Rotation is likely in most of the top teams with champions League and cup competitions. I say Suicidal simply because of his ownership. If he does anything your already playing catch up.

                                                Antonio actually a decent shout over F.Anderson you think? Am tempted..

                                                  I'm thinking Antonio too. Why have you chosen him over F.Anderson?

                                                  He always seems injury prone though and when is Lanzini back? otherwise tempting

                                                So much attention on Aguero. Sterling outscored him 18 to 17. He was central to City's best attacking play and completely dominated the left flank vs Azpilicueta. Aguero will continue to play for 60 minutes while Sterling tends to get the full 90 (with a benching once every 6 on average). Sterlings pace gives him multiple opportunities to pick up goals and assists at the end of games after Aguero has been removed versus tiring defences. I'd prefer to own Sterling (cant argue with both though).

                                                  Good points. But there are more options in midfield tbh.

                                                  His versatility is also a massive plus as he can operate on either flank.

                                                  Own Kun. Moving to Sterling for GW28 onwards.

                                                  Depending on FA Cup results.

                                                    Thinking much the same and if I do it's probably Kun to Higuain in 29 v Fulham. That would allow me to do Son to Sterling.

                                                    Remember Everton play Cardiff after the blank. I'd prefer to lose Luiz over Digne first.

                                                    Keep Luiz and Digne -no priority there especially if Chelsea go out of cup. It'd leave you with double Palace defence but away to Leicester that could pay (check the recent head to head and Palace away form in general).

                                                    Rich is shot and I'd be tempted by Fraser who you could bench 28 and 29.

                                                    You could also look at Son to Mane in 2.

                                                    Felipe and pereira.

                                                    If it was purely between maddison and Felipe it's a lot closer and maddison could be worth a punt but wouldn't want to have too much Leicester as they're quite

                                                              For the blank do I sell Sterling or Luiz? Obviously Luiz is the priority but I could get a midfield big hitter for one week only if I sell the former. Already got Salah, Son and Pogba mind. Cheers.

                                                                think a bit more long term...keep Sterling even though it feels weird to bench so much money, and sell Luiz
