For those who say, ‘Yes’, there is then the choice of who to give the arm band to. That can hopefully be picked up in the Captaincy thread

My initial thoughts were yes, but after City only scoring one today (4 shots on target) I am really not sure. If you could guarantee me 90 minutes of Aguero for both games I’d probably take a punt on him.

I could play it for Aguero if I knew for sure he would start both matches. But I think he is far from nailed to start both, in fact I'd suggest he is even less than 50% to start both! What is everyone else thinking?

I’ll be playing it on one of Sterling or Sane. Probably Sterling. Not worried at all about last night’s performance, we know Rafa’a teams are very organised and tough to break down.

Of more importance is that they face an Arsenal side who gave up 19(!) shots to Cardiff last night and an Everton side who gave up 10 to Huddersfield.

I have Aguero, Richarlison and Digne (transfer out when I decide who for). I'm not tempted to triple Richarlison or Aguero. In years gone by I'd go for Aguero, but there's rotation risk since Pep could start Jesus for one of the games, or sub Aguero early for Jesus. So I think I'll wait on using the triple. Probably regret it, but hey ho!

Not risking it in this DGW. I’d rather Salah in a SGW against Cardiff/Huddersfield near the end of the season if necessary. I don’t fancy taking the punt on Aguero playing both games.

Complete lottery as to what team Pep’s going to field on Sunday. Even more so after last nights performance. I expect Bernardo/Mahrez to start.

Im going to stick to my plan of using TC on Sterling or Sane.

The only threat to there postion is B Silva or Mahrez.

B Silva can also play a deeper role if KDB still not fully fit or Dilva 33years old cant play 2 in a week.

Then its just a case of who plays more out of Sane and Sterlng and im leaning towards Sterling myself and will use my TC on him.

As said above Arsenal are awful at defending and there form of defence is to attack so will play right into Man city hands.
If Man city smash Arsenal like im expecting then and Sterling gets a nice haul, then its not the end if the world if he only plays last 20-30 mins against a poor Everton defence also

No, not for me. I was considering using my Free Hit chip, but the ongoing rotation at City and the inconsistency of Everton gives me the feeling, there will be better opportunities.

Following the dismissal of Digne I have only got Agüero who I think is still the best bet.

I would expect Arsenal to play more like their game against Chelsea. [ both Auba and Lacca doing a lot of defensive work].

They have no defenders at the moment Arsenal and Chelsea just lost 4-0 to Bournemouth, so there not a very good example haha

Free hit chip is a temptation. Triple captain risky. Can easily see Aguero Sterling only starting one of two games.

If they only do start one game though and come on in last 30 mins of the other, surley in a team like Man City they can still get decent points.
The TC is designed for DGW and who to say there is any better gameweeks than this to use in the future.

The problem i think is with Man City is actually picking the correct TC as you can guranteee, that one of Aguero, Sterling, Sane will get big points, especially after that Newcastle result

Shame Everton so poor this season as Richarlison will definatly play both games and he would be some differential as a TC and has 2 home games as well

under different circumstances Mr Hazard would be looking like a TC contender this week. If Chelsea had got their DGW this week...

I'm currently on Sane TC, Kun TVC atm. I expect Kun to start the Arsenal and Chelsea games but I reckon Sane will start both Arsenal and Everton.

Interesting article. But I am not convinced by some of the arguments.

- After DGW25, MC have Chelsea. After a DGW32, MC would have either an FA Cup SF, or Cardiff. Right now, the Chelsea game probably demands players to be ready more than the FA Cup, and Cardiff at home would allow rest/rotation.

- if DGW32 happens for MC, one of the games is Fulham away. OK the other is a Manc derby away, but DGW32 has some appeal surely (and DGW32 for MC looks virtually certain to happen)

- Seems odd to me to be focussing on a potential Arsenal DGW32, when that relies on Wolves winning 2 cup games first

- Chelsea ... well GW32 is some way off, and if they continue to not play for their manager then I doubt it will be allowed to last until then. One way or the other it will be sorted by then surely, and Hazard is likely to have at least one juicy DGW, in which he will probably play 180 mins and get a lot of the ball.

I do not see Sane as a terrible TC pick this week. However, I am not even sure he will be my C, let alone a TC.

Interesting read that, but im still sticking with Sterling TC and Sane V.

I made the decsion as soon as knew there was a potential DGW25 amd if i change it now and Stering gets a big haul i wont forgive myself.

Plus Sterling is defo due to do something he been quiet recently and should be fresh enough for both prem games seen as never played in them cup matches.

Would also say that Pep slightly favours Sterling over Sane when comes to getting 90 mins in a game

I don't think it's worth reading at all.
The traditional wisdom is to Wildcard GW30, Free GW31 then use your chips GW32/35 but there is a problem with this
Indeed there is as he's/his not considering other alternatives.

Also:
consider that Arsenal hardly look great at the moment
a team that at the moment is averaging 1 goal per game at the moment, I cannot consider you in this conversation.
Wolves currently on form at the moment
the alternatives are extremely unappealing/risky and right now
Bla bla bla, it's all based on current form while the other DGW's are weeks/months away. Therefore, I don't find it worth reading at all. Also, when you promote yourself as FPL Punisher... well alright :lol:

I was going to TC either Aguero or Sane but have deactivated the chip and reconsidered.

I think Man City offer a false economy. Can totally see Jesus starting against Everton and Aguero maybe making a cameo. In which case you're not really getting a DGW.

If it was Salah and those two fixtures I'd feel much more confident.

For what it’s worth De Bruyne started both cup games against Burton and Burnley before a trip to Newcastle. The main reason he isn’t in my Free Hit squad.
