Manchester City’s Aguero And The 5 #FPL Players You MUST Pick This Week





Gameweek 3

DEFENCE: Fabricio Coloccini, Newcastle – £4.5m (Home v Crystal Palace)

A huge haul of nine Fantasy points from Newcastle’s goalless draw at Aston Villa made Fabricio Coloccini the only winner of that game, certainly amongst all of us who had to endure watching it.

The Argentinean isn’t always the soundest Fantasy pick, but on a tough weekend to call he should marshal a United defence which stands a good chance of keeping out a Crystal Palace side now under the stewardship of Neil Warnock, whilst the Geordies have got some decent fixtures coming up too.


MIDFIELD: Gylfi Sigurdsson, Swansea – £6.3m (Home v West Brom)

The Iceman Gylfi Sigurdsson continues to see his price rise as his second spell at Swansea begins with a bang.

It’s West Brom at home for the Swans this week, and although that is then followed by a trip to Chelsea, the next five fixtures look pretty kind.

FORWARD: Stevan Jovetic, Manchester City – £8.0m (Home v Stoke)

After shooting down Liverpool by scoring a brace against them for third time in his career (once in this pre-season and once for Fiorentina five years ago) Stevan Jovetic is suddenly a man in form.

With Edin Dzeko not quite firing just yet it will be interesting to see what would happen if Manuel Pellegrini opted to field Jovetic upfront with Sergio Aguero. Interesting, and undoubtedly tough for Stoke City.


THE OUTSIDER (a player with less than 5% ownership): Cheikhou Kouyate – £5.0m (Home v Southampton)

Not so much an outsider as a way outsider, combative midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate has completed 90 minutes in both of West Ham’s game’s so far, registering an assist against Crystal Palace.

He’s not going to win you masses and masses of points, but sometimes you just want a player who you know you’ll get an honest stint out of, and the Senegalese could be your man.


THE CAPTAIN: Sergio Aguero, Manchester City – £12.0m (Home v Stoke)

After his brief and remarkable cameo appearance against Liverpool, surely Sergio Aguero is now ready to make his first Premier League start of the season as City host Stoke at the Etihad.

Granted, the champions face two tricky looking fixtures in the immediate aftermath of this one, but even if he’s on the bench the Argentinean has proven to be a huge goal threat when he comes on.

Can you afford to keep ignoring him?

    So we MUST sign Kouyate, Aguero and Jovetic when the former is a defensive midfielder and no-one knows who will start in attack for Man City?? Daft. Never mind the -16 points it might take to bring them in. Strange use of the English language and I bet you must come bottom of your fantasy leagues if you follow your own advice

    • Thanks for your comment

      Finished in the top 0.2% last season.

      Players are suggestions based on the position you are looking for along with a differential. Feel free to make a suggestion for your own picks.

    I think you blog is flawed because I don’t see Augero & Jovetic playing in the same man city team
