I think Aguero because 1. Jesus is doing well and 2. Auba has some good fixtures. I also wonder if Arsenal's persistence with looking for a winger means Emery prefers Auba in the middle over Laca or both together there.

Well, Gonzalo got a brace in the terriers romp, and he's on the brink of his first price rise.
Still, would you bring him in now, knowing Blues play GW26 @MCI and then have a BGW27?

I found this BBC article from 2 weeks ago https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/46961717
and agree with most things in it

Indeed, I expected Higuain to make a nonsense of his price tag and still do, it's just that BGW27 and quite possibly BGW31 get in the way. If Chelsea lose in FAC5 to United I'll likely bring Higuain in around GW29, he'd be a perfect Aubameyang replacement.

People are saying "too old" and "past his best" but I'm not having a minute of it. He is 6 months older than Aguero, that's all. And pretty much equivalent in status and quality: for Argentina Higuain has 31 goals & 13 assists in 75 games and Aguero has 39 goals & 13 assists in 90 games. Higuain is also more nailed than Aguero is. So he seems a self-evident bargain to me, as long as fixtures don't obstruct. The only downside is that he isn't on penalties at Chelsea, which he was when he scored all those goals at Napoli.

Gonzalo Higuain

To be honest I thought Higuaín had a pretty bad game against Huddersfield except for his two brilliant goals. I thought both his lay-offs were poor and his through passes were poor and I don’t think he lets Chelsea play better football.

But hey, FPL is about points so Ruth’s indication of a GW29 switch from Aubameyang to Higuaín could prove to be quite valuable, although I haven’t written off a possible move to Agüero the week before.

Not what we need really. We have been playing nice football all season; what we need is someone to convert it into goals. If Higuain can't do that then Sarri-ball is broken.

Higuain is great! Will be a godsend for the team !! He and Kun will be my frontline for the rest of the season
