Aguero causes more FPL headaches after latest double-digit haul

Manchester City dismantled Brighton and Hove Albion in a 4-0 victory on Saturday, with Sergio Aguero (£12.0m) stealing the headlines with a brace and an assist to send a timely reminder to Fantasy managers of his explosive potential. 

We round up the key talking points in our latest Scout Notes article below.

Manchester City 4-0 Brighton & Hove Albion

  • Goals: Sergio Aguero (£12.0m) x2, Kevin de Bruyne (£9.7m), Bernardo Silva (£7.9m) 
  • Assists: David Silva x2 (£7.4m), de Bruyne, Aguero
  • Bonus Points: Aguero x3, de Bruyne x2, David Silva x1

Aguero, owned by just 21.4% of managers, put in a dominant display at the Etihad to secure a 16-point score, with the most captained player of the week, Raheem Sterling (£12.3m), blanking to the disappointment of his 47.3% of owners. 

Aguero’s brace against Brighton brings his tally to six goals in City’s first four Premier League matches, and despite the hat-trick from Sterling in Gamweek 1 against West Ham, it is difficult to look past the Argentine as being the Citizens’ primary source of goals in 2019/20. 

This presents a serious dilemma to managers already in ownership of Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne (£9.7m), who also delivered a sensational performance with a goal and an assist, with tripling up on City attacking coverage representing a potential overload despite their promising fixtures and imperious offensive form. 

De Bruyne was in exceptional nick at the Etihad against Brighton, with the Belgian midfielder exhibiting touches, through-balls and all-round attacking player that attests to him being City’s best player, though remaining fit will be pivotal if the playmaker is to make a serious impact for the Citizens in 2019/20. 

With City’s defensive unit returning a second clean sheet of the season against Brighton, and the highly valuable Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m) holding his spot in Guardiola’s first-choice backline, retaining a form of defensive coverage from City is also appealing, and therefore the aforementioned triple-up would not only be costly but logistically troublesome, too. 

Selecting two of Sterling, de Bruyne and Aguero over the coming Gameweeks will be a serious test for managers who are looking to utilise the goalscoring form of the Citizens, but there is no doubt that these are three players in notable form who are likely to propel City to the top of the Premier League table. 

Combine this selection dilemma with Guardiola’s notorious rotation roulette and selecting the right City assets who are not only in form but who are likely to start ahead of a promising run of fixtures is where ground will be seriously made or lost for managers with regards to assets from City.

Bernardo Silva (£7.9m) also chipped in with a goal during his substitute appearance after being assisted by Aguero to complete the rout, whilst David Silva (£7.4m) contributed two exquisite assists to also remind managers of his potential for attacking returns, with the Silva duo highlighting the sheer depth of options at Pep Guardiola’s disposal.

City were rampant against Graham Potter’s Brighton, though a devastating injury to Aymeric Laporte (£6.5m), who was replaced by Fernandinho (£5.3m) in the first half, could curtail the Frenchman’s season – causing a forced transfer for the 8% of managers who own the City centre-back. 

The question also has to be asked about whether Laporte’s period of unavailability also makes City’s other FPL defenders less appealing as a result, given that he has been the bedrock of the champions’ backline for the last 12 months.

Speaking after the game, Guardiola said:

I think he’s gone to hospital. It doesn’t look good. I don’t know right now what he has done, but we will know tomorrow.

We’ll see. They’re diagnosing what he has right now. I’m waiting for the doctor to call me. He might be out for a while.

Laporte’s injury, combined with the ever-changing power dynamic in City’s frontline, is the main takeaway from their impressive victory over Brighton, though the Seagulls, despite exhibiting promising early-season form, now find themselves winless in three.

There were plenty of encouraging signs from this defeat, however, with Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) getting into a series of threatening positions but being unable to convert two excellent chances either side of half-time.

Adam Webster (£4.4m) started in place of Shane Duffy (£5.0m) though the £20m summer signing from Bristol City was unable to prevent the barrage of City attacks as Potter’s side, for all their admirable attacking ambition, became unstuck at the home of the champions. 

This was an afternoon that belonged to the imperious Aguero, but the decisions that Fantasy managers now have to make regarding attacking coverage from City alongside the devastating injury to Laporte may lead to the deployment of Wildcards for those looking to solve the problems arising from the defensive injuries and sensational form from City’s attacking options.

    Worst OR ever for me at the moment..

    Pope, Button
    Laporte*, VvD, Digne, Balbuena*, Montoya
    Salah, Sterling, Martial*, Cantwell, Dendoncker
    Vardy, King, Pukki

    1FT - 0.0 ITB

    Time to shift something. Wildcard active?

    1. Gunner Boy
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      You were unlucky with Laporte injuring himself.

      Need to get KDB I think.

      King > Greenwood and Martial > KDB?

      1. Tshelby

        1 month, 13 days ago

        Can't see Laporte being fit again for the next game and don't want to bench a 6.5 defender but good suggestion, thanks!

      What's your OR?

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        761K.. time to make up some ground

        1. AuFeld
          • 3 Years

          Lol. Relax. You're almost as dramatic as Cillian Murphy.

          • 7 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          761k is your worst ever rank? Struth, I'm used to having a poor start to season and crawling up from the millions. Very early days yet and big rank jumps are easy just by staying on the ball and catching some luck with players brought in.

          1. Tshelby
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Not used to it. Not that I'm that good in this game but top 100K finish most seasons but can't recall being so far behinde at this stage of the season. Maybe I am as dramatic as Cillian..

              Don’t worry about it, fella. I am 2.6m 😀

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 13 days ago

                And what's your game plan now? Wildcard or hope for better times?

                1. Rasping Drive
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  I actually quite like my team for the upcoming weeks, providing Kane delivers something today (quite a big caveat I know).

                  I have Laporte as well and may just switch to TAA. Not sure yet. Got plenty of time to think about it, but getting all the 50-50 calls wrong at the moment.

            2. Eddie
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              Top 100k finish sure, but rank fluctuations are massive this stage in season. Only 3.8 gameweeks in.

                  Thanks, I plan to. You too.

      Worst ever with Vardy this week? Think you held onto King to long! Obviously Laporte will likely be out for a while but don’t know this yet and with martial back looks OK. Of course best thing about wildcard is the boost you can get shaping your team for next few fixtures and will add some positivity back.

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        43 points this week so yeah really bad despite Vardy.

    4. United10
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Ive got a similar team and I activated wc last night.

    5. Eddie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      With three potentially out I can see it's tempting. but your team is in pretty good shape otherwise, not quite sure why your OR is so bad with those players. If Martial is fit to start after IB you may not want to change much.

      That said, a few things I'd like to tweak and if you want to mix it up then do it, nice to have something to do over IB.

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Think I'm going too do it

    6. Stokelona
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Reckon you should remain patient and resist wildcarding. King has good fixtures, Martial will be back to lead the line after the break and the rest of your team looks very good. Just do Laporte to your 5.5m city def of choice leaving a mil to possibly upgrade king next week

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Think I'm missing out too much if I hold it.

  2. Twisted Saltergater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Considering penalties and general explosiveness, Would you agree with:

    Aguero(c) > Sterling(c)
    Salah(c) > Mané (c)

    We know it’s likely Aguero will be rotated, so owners are gambling Aguero gets the lion share of PL fixtures while Jesus gets cup competitions.

    1. Stokelona
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I would rather have sterling than Kun due to extra point for a goal and clean sheet. Kun has 7 attacking returns to Sterling’s 5 yet he’s only 3 points ahead.

      1. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        +1.

      2. Mr KFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Hasn’t Sterling played more minutes than Aguero though?

        1. The Legend Squad
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Yeah

  3. wasp3000
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Feel like a i can’t get a transfer or Captaincy call this year.

    Was on Moura to dilva all week but ended up doing Moura & Jota —> Mount and Pukki (-4)....not to mention my GW3 double FT of VVD and Callum Wilson —> AWB and Rashford Is the gift that keeps on giving.

    Rage WC’d last night. Going to be a long 2 weeks

    1. Bob Vrabkab
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Fell into the Pukki trap

    2. Ghost Gooner
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Mount Pukki were point chasing moves. So were the previous gw moves.

      Pick solid fpl perfomers and you'll be alright

  4. S.Kuqi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    So many great mid price striker options to choose. Time to revert back to 3-4-3?

    1. Valar(Keith)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Yup. The mid options sub kdbs price point have gone barren all of a sudden.. Just cantwell and punts on mount or James. All the value seems to be upfront for now.

      1. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Well said. Besides Martial there isn't much options in price range 6.0 - 8.5

    2. DandyDon
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Definitely

    3. AndyCook
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Maddison doing ok, Zaha will have a run at some point, Lanzini will tick over, Pulisic starting to pick the odd few points up. It’s not a complete wasteland but upfront seems to offer more

  5. SoShy
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Callum Wilson.. 4 returns in 4.. but price keeps dropping. This season is so chaotic with the transfers

    1. Maddamotha
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Yeahhhh. Annyoing as an owner.

    2. Stokelona
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Pukki partygoers abandoned him.

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Am only 3 points up on getting Pukki 2 gws ago.

    3. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Maybe lack of bps

    4. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Cheaper options getting bigger scores every week so there's alot of volatility.

      Although he's pretty okay imo.

    5. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Yeah I had to sell him yesterday eventhough I wanted to keep him. His returns haven’t been bad at all and he was unlucky yesterday, YC cost him 2 points and there was contact there so definitely didn’t deserve that one.

    6. Bob Vrabkab
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      He was massively overpriced, 8m for a Bournemouth player is crazy

    7. teneighty
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Im keeping. Think he will end the season with more points than all the 6.5 options.

      1. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        ... but several 6.5 forwards will provide better value (points/GBP) than Wilson I suspect. Hence the problem.

  6. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Thoughts on this WC lot?

    Ryan Button
    VVD Digne Ward Lowton Diop
    Mané Dilva KDB Ceballos Cantwell
    Kun Haller Pukki

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Maybe Son instead of Dilva if possible?

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Son is 2,1m more so not possible

        1. S.Kuqi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Despite Kun being in great form and back to back hauls.

          I still think Sterling being better option and mid priced strikers like Lacazette, Barnes, Tammy being better value than Kun.

    2. Bob Vrabkab
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Try and get Abraham over Pukki

    3. Geriatric Unathletic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Why ??????????????

  7. tristanabc
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Should I do A) Perez + Aguero -> Mane + Abraham (-4) to make team more balanced or save FT?

    Heaton
    TAA VVD Digne Mings Montoya
    Sterling KDB Trossard
    Aguero Pukki

    Pope Perez Dendon Greenwood

    1. benbro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Where does Vardy leave you?

      1. tristanabc
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Leaves me with 9.9 for Perez replacement. Just feel like missing Liverpool attacking cover.

  8. Crouching Tiger
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    RMWCT

    Pope - Button
    Digne - Otamendi - Lundstram - Pieters - Kelly
    Salah - Sterling - James - Mount - Cantwell
    Aguero - Abraham - Pukki

    Needs more Liverpool?

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      1 Liverpool defender seems to be essential, imo.

  9. S.Kuqi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Lacazette will be next big bandwagon. Great fixtures coming up, attacking side, focal point and takes pens

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Similar thoughts but Pepe I reckon

    2. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      But not nailed? Or am I wrong?

    3. DandyDon
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      He’ll still be benched for odd games so I’ll be avoiding after last season.

    4. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Won’t start all games as Auba prefers to play through the middle too

    5. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      ... but will Lacazette play? Emery may have other plans ...

      1. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        He'll start when fit

        1. jtreble
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Will Lacazete start every game? No. They question is then: which ones will he start?

    6. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Not nailed so I’m not sure about that but should do well when he plays.

  10. Link

    Zouma and Rash out for

    A. Vardy and 4.5
    B. Haller and PVA (or any up to 6ish)
    C. Keep Rash

    1. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Rashford has the highest xG. I would keep.

      1. Link
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Yes have seen that.... But not passing the eye test and that xg skewed due to 2 pens

  11. JT11fc

    1 month, 13 days ago

    Current WC thoughts depending on tomorrows games.
    Pope / 4.0
    Digne TAA Zinc / 4.0 4.0
    Sterling KDB Mount Ceballos / Hayden
    Barnes Firmino Auba

    Gonna go non template for abit more excitment i think lol

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I think Salah is must have.

      1. JT11fc
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Ye i just fancy Auba but dont wanna lose KDB. Im gonna go without til gw14 and do or dive

  12. Joe-AsWell
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Hold my beer while I build a team around Sterling and Salah

  13. Lucky Z
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Pope
    TAA Digne Lundstram
    Salah Sterling James Cantwell
    Kun Haller Pukki

    4.0 Hayden 4.0 4.0

    WC. Apparently weak defence. How to upgrade?

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Drop Kun for Laca and get someone half decent for Cantwell. You want play two Norwich players against ManC?

      1. Lucky Z
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I am not building the team for one game, but of course will like the idea of benching Cantwell

    2. Stokelona
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      The defence is fine. TAA and Digne are the two best/template picks and the cheap third def in the sacrifice you make to have Kun, Raz and Mo.

    Take a hit to remove Maguire for Otamendi or stick and take that inevitable 2 pointter from next game?

      Norwich could score against City too, I wouldn’t do it. Man City defence hasn’t looked very good so far.

      Maguire stinking up my team too. Thinking of downgrading to 4.0/4.5, but no player I want.

      1. S.Kuqi

        Villa has been decent side. Maybe bags magnet Mings?

        1. fr3d
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Mings or Masuaku possibly?

    3. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      As a general rule, I wouldn't take a hit for a defender.

      1. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        True. Hits rarely pay off

      I'm not taking a hit at this stage of the international break, hold your horses.

    So which one wins?

    58 pts + Digne or 47 pts + Moura and Digne

    1. Captain the FWD playing Nor…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      A

    2. Lukey27
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      If Moura scores less than 11 points then A wins.

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Defo A, Moura probably won't even start

  16. KAPTAIN KANE

    Really think Aguero should have been 11.5 this season, would be more diversity amongst Sterling vs Aguero picks

    1. Coolbean
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Why...? He’s outscored Sterling in one start less.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Because Sterling will always be more popular at the same price due to extra point for goal and clean sheet point, he also virtually matched him for goals last season.
          If Kun is 0.5 cheaper then it would even out in % selection.

          1. Coolbean
              1 month, 13 days ago

              Yeah, but that's if he matches him. Thus far, not the case, despite playing more.

              The fact that people aren't buying Sterling is due to 1. familiarity due to last season, and 2. don't want to appear to be "kneejerking", which has nothing to do with the price.

        2. AndyCook
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          The beauty is if he’s overpriced, people sell and his price falls

        Thoughts on Tammy? Do we think he can hold onto his position for a while or will 1/2 games without goals mean he will be dropped in a heart beat?

          Tammy is a proper goal scorer. He proved it in the Chsmpionship.

            Play Lundstram for greenwood and swap King for barnes.. Then swap KWP for City defender next week and the week after that donks to cantwell. Sorted

                  Good advice.

                  Haller over Barnes? It’s an option worth considering at least.

                  And it gives a few more weeks to watch Cantwell. I’m not convinced about him yet.

                  And watch out the the city D

                    Only said Barnes since he'd need cash in the bank for the future upgrades :).. Else haller or Tammy come in too

                    1. Tonyawesome69
                        1 month, 13 days ago

                        Not convinced with Tammy. Only scored against two teams he played against last year so far

                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Burnley have some nice fixtures coming up almost worth to double up.

                  1. benbro
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 1 Year

                    Almost. Who would you do?

                    I need to do something with Azpi and Pierers frees up some good money.

                    1. Helpmeoutpleaselads
                        1 month, 13 days ago

                        I would go with a defender or GK and Barnes, especially if you have Lundstram/Henderson as Sheff Utd rotates well with Burnley.

                      Pope and Barnes looking good

                        Pope is a great shout.

                        Forgot him in that I already have him.

                        A bit concerned that Barnes is over performing so far. Not sure Burnley will be in the top half of goals scored this season

                        1. Valar(Keith)

                          1 month, 13 days ago

                          Not expecting him to light the pl on fire. At his price if he gets 15 goals in a season it's a huge bargain And he is Currently Well on Course For that

                            It’s a good point. I guess because it a new season and we’re all looking at making the right moves there’s a temptation to forget that what you really want a lot of the time is a player to get 20 points from the next 6 so that you can leave them to it for a while.

                            I definitely feel that after a good year in my MLs and being here more last year I’m working to hard already this Season and need to let things sit a bit more

                    Is Kun making Sterling less effective?

                      • 8 Years
                      1 month, 13 days ago

                      Nope... Just stick with Sterling

                    2. Valar(Keith)
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 10 Years
                      1 month, 13 days ago

                      If Sterling scored 10 points per game he'd be at 380 points. He has to have the odd 2 pointer here and there. Don't worry about him all season.

                      1 month, 13 days ago

                      Less effective? Have you seen his numbers? Use the full enormity of the 4 games we have to look at.

                      If I was doubling up I’d want Sterling and KDB most

                      1. Coolbean
                          1 month, 13 days ago

                          In the last 3 games (ignoring first game as Aguero did not even start):
                          - Aguero's xG is 2.35, xA is 0.66
                          - Sterling's xG is 1.51, xA is 0.73

                          And that's despite Sterling playing 30 minutes more. With Jesus out, Aguero likely gets the full 90 in the short-term.

                        Cantwell no good as a regular and nowhere to go from him. If you want Aguero, Salah, Sterling and De Bruyne you need to let Alexander-Arnold go and go for someone like Pieters to get a workable team

                        Probably the only one who thinks this, but preferred the 13.30 / 16.00 kick-offs on Sunday then the 14.00 / 16.30 kick-offs.
