GW3 Ones to watch: Gabriel Jesus

Brazilian was Man City's main goal threat at home last season and The Scout says to pick him until Sergio Aguero returns

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 3 of Fantasy Premier League.

Gabriel Jesus (MCI) £9.5m

The Brazilian was on the scoresheet in Manchester City’s first match of the season in Gameweek 2.

Jesus scored the third goal in a 3-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday.

And with his team-mate Sergio Aguero (£10.4m) still sidelined through injury, he looks set for another start at home to Leicester City this weekend.

Although Jesus scored only six goals at home last season, the numbers show he was Man City’s main threat in matches at Etihad Stadium.

At home, his 40 shots in the penalty area, 20 shots on target and 15 big chances were all more than any other player for Pep Guardiola’s side.

History on his side

His record against Sunday's visitors looks promising for further returns.

Jesus has scored in four of his five Premier League meetings with the Foxes, including strikes in both of their matches last season.

And now he will look to take advantage of a Leicester side who conceded two goals against Burnley last weekend.

Short-term Aguero fix

Owned by a mere 2.9 per cent of managers, Jesus can be a very handy differential for Gameweek 3.

And with matches against Leeds United and West Ham United also to come in the next four Gameweeks, he can provide managers with a short-term solution before Aguero returns from injury.
