Sergio Aguero injury: Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni has revealed that Sergio Aguero has been carrying an injury problem and has not been training with his club.
Sergio Aguero has been on a roll in the ongoing season of the Premier League. The Manchester City striker has so far scored 8 goals in 8 matches so far and has gathered a whopping 61 points in Fantasy Premier League.
Despite not being at his best against Everton and Wolverhampton, he has the highest points amongst all strikers employed in the Premier League and has been picked by more than a quarter of people playing in the Fantasy Premier League.
However, it has now come to light that the Argentine is not at his 100%. Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni revealed that the reason he did not select Sergio Aguero was because he was suffering from an injury; one that has kept away from training with his club as well.
With this update in the open now, it is being speculated whether he will take part in the match against Crystal Palace next weekend when the Premier League kicks off once again after the international break. However, there are still a few substitutes for the prolific scorer should he miss out on the action at Selhurst Park.
Here are three replacements for Sergio Aguero for Premier League game week 9.
#3) Teemu Pukki (Norwich City)
Total FPL Points: 54
Bonus Points: 9
Newly promoted club Norwich City have ridden the storm of the English top flight on the back of Teemu Pukki. The forward has been extremely prolific for the Canaries and could provide the same ammunition to any team that picks him in their side.
Like Aguero though he has had a quite couple of weeks. However, considering he comes at just a little over half of what Aguero costs, he will leave you with quite the budget to strengthen other areas of your team that need work.
For instance, swapping Pukki for Aguero will leave you with £5,1. If you sell another of your player worth about 7 that you don’t deem fit for your team, then that leaves you with enough to bring in the likes of De Bruyne, Salah, Mane and Son!
