Fantasy Premier League

GW34 team news: Jesus can answer call

With Sergio Aguero ruled out for Man City, The Scout says another striker can come to the aid in Fantasy

Gabriel Jesus (£10.0m) could become a big player in Fantasy Premier League over the remaining fixtures.

The Manchester City striker was on the bench in last weekend’s defeat by Manchester United after being named in the starting XI for the previous two matches.

But a further injury to Sergio Aguero (£11.6m) means Jesus is set to start at Tottenham Hotspur in Gameweek 34.

Double Gameweek advantage 

Any long spell of absence for Aguero would make Jesus a big target in Fantasy.

It would give the Brazilian the chance of two starts in Double Gameweek 37, both at home to Huddersfield Town and Brighton & Hove Albion.

There are also two things in Jesus's favour before that.

City visit West Ham United in Gameweek 36 and are one of only 12 teams with a fixture in Gameweek 35.

They face Swansea City at the Etihad Stadium in the reduced Gameweek 35, making Jesus a possible option for those managers deploying the Free Hit chip.

FPL favourites to hurt sellers?

Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) is a minor doubt for Liverpool’s Anfield meeting with AFC Bournemouth.

He has a neck injury after Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League victory over Man City, but Jurgen Klopp is optimistic of Firmino featuring on Saturday.

Mohamed Salah (£10.5m) is also set to return having missed Gameweek 33 with a groin injury.

Salah played in Tuesday’s European tie, scoring his 39th goal of the campaign in all competitions.

The Egyptian, along with Firmino, is among the top three most-sold players ahead of Saturday’s 11:30 BST deadline.
