FPL Gameweek 27 – head-to-head comparisons: Sergio Aguero vs Gabriel Jesus
Although Man City face a tough fixture away at Leicester this weekend, Pep Guardiola's men are capable of putting goals past any opposition and so owners of their assets shouldn't necessarily be deterred by what looks a difficult obstacle on paper. Indeed, a win for City here would give them a seven-point buffer over the Foxes so they will be naturally motivated to perform.
Usually, in a straight battle between Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) and Sergio Aguero (£12.1m), we would side with the latter as the Argentine is undoubtedly Pep's first-choice forward. However, when factoring in the context of a crucial Champions League tie with Real Madrid next Wednesday, there is a strong case for Aguero being handed a breather to prepare for that. With that in mind, Jesus could be a worth a differential punt this weekend and we are tipping him to start for the Citizens.
Verdict: Sergio Aguero
