FPL Show: Jesus the saviour in Aguero absence?

29 Nov 2019

Fantasy experts say the many chances Man City striker will get make him very appealing

With Sergio Aguero (£11.9m) out injured, Manchester City team-mate Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) is an exciting alternative for Fantasy Premier League managers.

"Gabriel Jesus is attractive," says expert Mark McGettigan on the latest FPL Show. "Even if Aguero’s only out for a few weeks, this time of year a few weeks means a lot of Gameweeks in FPL, so you’re going to get a lot of games out of him."

Lingering doubts over the fitness of Tammy Abraham (£8.0m), after a hip injury in midweek, add strength to the Brazilian’s case for selection in Fantasy teams this weekend.

Man City have scored 37 goals this season, six more than any other team, and the Brazilian's minutes-per-shot ratio is superior to both Aguero’s and Abraham's.

"City are going to create a lot of chances," says Danny Jamieson. "He's still playing in front of [Raheem] Sterling (£12.0m) and [Kevin] De Bruyne (£10.2m) and all those people.

"There's going to be a lot of chances to go around; someone has to have shots at the end of those chances, and at the minute it’s going to be him."
