This is another transfer where I’m torn between two players. With the ways things are going it’s almost inevitable that whoever I pick will drop in form and whoever I don’t pick will score big points. The choice is between Aguero or Jesus to replace Morata. Chelsea have some tough fixtures coming up and after City’s recent run of form it’s simply too risky not to have one of their strikers. I’ll briefly outline the reasons for and against each striker:
In my opinion he’s more dangerous in front of goal. Personally I’d suggest that if they both had the same amount of game time over a season Aguero would score more goals and more points.
Some other managers may have already invested in other areas and priced themselves out of accommodating Aguero, Kane, Lukaku and Hazard in the same team.
Looks likely to get less game time. He was dropped against Bournemouth and didn’t feature in the EFL cup. Jesus started in both.
His cost is significantly more. As a result we would have less flexibility in terms of strengthening elsewhere in the team.
He’s much cheaper. As a result we should have more flexibility in terms of strengthening other areas of the team.
He gets more game time. He’s started every game so far this season whereas Aguero didn’t feature in the EFL cup and was benched against Bournemouth.
Despite the extra game time, Jesus has still scored 20 points less than Aguero to date. My personal opinion is that Aguero is more dangerous in front of goal (as illustrated with his hat trick last weekend). The big risk with Jesus is that Aguero could outscore him massively over the course of the season.
Out: Morata (5.6m)
In: Aguero (6.7m)
As this is my last transfer for September, I’m not even considering removing any other players. My opinion is that it’s vital to get a Man City striker in as soon as possible. I’ve opted for Aguero as the more premium option. As stated above I feel like he’s more dangerous in front of goal and as a result is more capable of hitting a hat trick every now and then like we saw last weekend. It’s a risk based on his game time but based on his current form I can’t see how dropping him could be justified. This should leave enough money in the bank to swap Eriksen for Hazard in October. Spurs have some difficult fixtures and both Chelsea and Man City have favourable ones.
If we can avoid any issues such as suspensions and transfers I’d hope to have a team like this in October (with two transfers left in the bank):
Valencia, Kompany, Pieters, Ogbonna
Salah, Hazard, Mkhitaryan
Kane, Lukaku, Aguero
Hopefully other managers have not planned enough in advance to get all of these big names in place so quickly.
