FPL experts: Aguero form makes him a bargain

Our panel of Fantasy experts discuss what to do with the prolific Man City striker

The 45 Fantasy Premier League points racked up by Sergio Aguero (£11.5m) in his last four matches have given FPL managers a dilemma ahead of Gameweek 27.

Manchester City do not have a fixture because of the EFL Cup final, but that has not deterred more than 130,000 Fantasy managers who have signed Aguero already, pushing his price up by £0.1m.

Our FPL experts discuss what to do with Aguero and, for once, there is unity.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): Having Aubameyang over Aguero for the last two Gameweeks has been absolutely disastrous.

Aguero is a bargain for his pedigree and I'm looking at making the switch for Gameweek 28.

Rotation is always a risk for City players, especially as they are still involved in four competitions, but Aguero's minutes look most secure.

Ash (@FPLHints): Aguero can't be overlooked and it makes no sense to sell him, even as a one-off for his blank Gameweek 27.

City's busy schedule is a concern but I have no doubt Gabriel Jesus (£10.0m) will shoulder some of the burden.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): Aguero looks fully fit and I'll bench him for Gameweek 27 then pair him with Raheem Sterling (£11.3m) .

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): I have Aubameyang and he would have to make way if I want Aguero. Another intriguing City option is Benjamin Mendy (£6.1m).

I expect him to be back and firing by the Gameweek 28 visit of West Ham United rolls round. 

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): The biggest concern, if any, about Aguero is his away form. Fourteen of his 17 goals have come at the Etihad.

That said, he's arguably playing for the best team, plus he has great fixtures after the blank. That kind of threat is hard to ignore in FPL.
