With Sergio Aguero (£11.3m) a doubt for this weekend, Fantasy Premier League managers have been selling him in their droves, but which premium forward should replace the Manchester City star?

After missing two matches and not scoring since Gameweek 12, Aguero is the second-most transferred out player, with more than 230,000 managers ditching him ahead of the weekend.

Harry Kane (£12.5m) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.3m) are two leading candidates to take his place, helped by attractive fixtures on the horizon for Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

"Kane is the kind of guy who's just going to have shots left, right and centre, and the law of averages say that if you have more shots, you're going to score more goals," says expert David Munday on the latest FPL Show.

"Aubameyang, when he does shoot, he tends to score, but he just shoots less."

Fellow expert Mark McGettigan suggests managers should seek to pair up the two forwards if they can.

"Anyone who's got a Wildcard, I would be looking to include both of these guys," he says.
