FPL Show: Aguero threat holds off Kane challenge

5 Oct 2018

Despite fewer minutes, Man City striker still has the stats to resist a swap for Spurs star

Fantasy managers are selling Sergio Aguero (£11.4m) in their droves, with Harry Kane (£12.5m) a popular target, but in the battle of the premium strikers, the Tottenham Hotspur forward is not yet a clear winner, say the FPL experts.

With Kane's two goals bringing a 13-point haul last weekend, and a home match with Cardiff City on Saturday, 75,000 managers have swapped Aguero for the Spurs man this week.

But, on the latest FPL Show, Danny Jamieson points out that Kane has had just half the number of shots in the first seven Gameweeks of this season than in the same period last year.

So he and FPL expert Mark McGettigan are not turning their backs on the Manchester City forward just yet, even if Aguero has had much less game time than Kane.

"As much as he's played fewer minutes, Aguero is still top for shots, top for shots in the box and second for touches in the box," says Jamieson in the video above. 

"He might not be playing quite as much but he is being just as useful."
