FPL Show: Take a chance on City Triple Captain?

1 Nov 2019

The prospect of champions facing a recovering Southampton may tempt FPL managers to use their chip, experts say

Many Fantasy Premier League managers will be licking their lips at the prospect of their Manchester City attackers taking on a Southampton team who conceded nine goals last time out in the Premier League, and the FPL experts can understand anyone getting ready their Triple Captain chip.

FPL expert Gianni Buttice is looking no further than Raheem Sterling (£12.1m). "He's scoring a lot of goals and his numbers this season are looking so good," Buttice says on the latest FPL Show.

"When a goalscorer like Sterling is on a run, you back him."

For those scared of backing Sergio Aguero (£12.1m) after he was a substitute in the previous league match, expert David Munday is confident of not suffering the same fate twice after captaining the Argentinian brought just two points against Aston Villa.

"Is he going to get benched two weeks in a row? I don't think so," Munday says. "He's not played a heavy part in Gameweeks 9 and 10 but [Gabriel] Jesus [£9.5m] has."

As for Triple-Captaining Sterling, Munday says it is far from a crazy idea.

"I'd prefer to go in a Double [Gameweek], but as far as single [Gameweeks], this looks good," Munday says.
