Aguero and Sterling start for Man City at Crystal Palace

Fantasy Premier League managers who backed Manchester City’s key attackers were handed a boost on Sunday afternoon.

Sergio Aguero (£11.7m) and Raheem Sterling (£11.5m), who some feared would be rotated ahead of a big Champions League match, have both been named in the starting line-up.

They are joined in the side by Kevin de Bruyne (£9.7m) who has now started five of the last six Premier League matches.

There will be plenty for those with a tactical interest in this encounter as Benjamin Mendy (£6.1m) and Leroy Sané (£9.3m) have both been selected in the starting XI.

It will be of great importance to analyse how those two players interact with each other given what they have offered Fantasy managers at various stages this season.

Meanwhile, Bernardo Silva (£7.6m) has shaken off his yellow flag to make the bench and Fernandinho (£5.3m) misses out with a knock.

As expected, Crystal Palace are down to their second-string in the centre-back department with Mamadou Sakho (£4.9m) and James Tomkins (£4.3m) out injured.

It will be Martin Kelly (£3.9m) and Scott Dann (£4.4m) tasked with schackling Aguero this afternoon.

Up front, there is a surprising selection by Roy Hodgson, who has benched Michy Batshuauyi (£6.5m) to give Christian Benteke (£6.3m) a first start since Gameweek 26.

Man City XI: Ederson, Walker, Kompany, Laporte, Mendy, Gundogan, Silva, De Bruyne, Sane, Sterling, Aguero.

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita, Wan Bissaka, Kelly, Dann, Van Aanholt, McArthur, Milivojevic, Schlupp, Townsend, Benteke, Zaha.

    Is it worth sacrificing Sterling (have Agüero) to do this for next week (BB):
    Sterling + Diop + AWB + Hayden > Son + Kolasinac + TAA + JWP (-8)

    Kane being out injured meant I switched Sterling + Kane for Son + Aguero. 12 points down the drain.

    Harold ruined my wildcard. Had him and Sterling but switched to Son+Eriksen and Aguero after the injury. Useless mouth breather would have scored a hatty vs Hudds.
