GW18 Final call: Aguero a festive differential?

The Scout says Man City striker is back in training ahead of a home meeting with Leicester City

The return to fitness of Sergio Aguero (£11.7m) could prove significant for managers in Fantasy Premier League.

A thigh injury has forced the Manchester City forward to miss the last four Gameweeks.

During his spell on the sidelines Aguero's ownership dropped to just 9.9 per cent following significant sales.

That marks him out as a major differential over the festive period.

Aguero's return to training is a major boost for third-placed City ahead of Saturday's home contest with Leicester City.

It remains to be seen whether the Argentinian, who has netted nine goals in 12 Premier League starts this season, will be deemed fit enough to start this weekend.

Fellow striker Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m) may retain the lone striker role against the Foxes.

But with Man City also set to face Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sheffield United and Everton in the next 12 days, Aguero's contribution could be crucial.

He has scored every 90 minutes this season, faster than any player in FPL with a minimum of three starts.

By comparison, Jesus has averaged 163.6 minutes per goal.

That suggests Aguero may well prove decisive for both Pep Guardiola and FPL managers alike over the busy festive period.
