Fantasy expert Az Phillips says managers should double up on Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling from Gameweek 28

Players from Manchester City are frequent victims of rotation but Fantasy Premier League managers should still have Sergio Aguero (£11.5m) and Raheem Sterling (£11.3m) in their teams.

So says FPL expert Az Phillips, who argues the form of the pair makes them almost assured of a starting place and high returns.

"Aguero's form means he [and Sterling] are ... certainly first-team players," says Phillips in the latest FPL Show. "The rewards are definitely there."

A City player has earned double-digit returns a league-high 35 times this season, with Sterling claiming seven himself.

Should managers double up?

Aguero has scored hat-tricks in back-to-back home matches. So should FPL managers double up on the pair?

"Yes, definitely," says Phillips. "Not this week but between now and the end of the season City are really going to be gunning for that title."

And Phillips says that Sterling has an additional attraction for managers.

"His ownership doesn't seem to increase," he says. "He's getting all these points every week and he just stays around the 10 or 11 per cent mark.

"So he's actually a great differential."
