The Team: Manchester City
After the rotation and the irrelevant defeat against Basel in the Champions League Pep Guardiola will once again send his first team on the field. This is bad news for Stoke, but good news for fantasy football managers. The mane offensive players were all rested.
In addition to the top-performing Aguero and Sane , we also like Kevin de Bruyne and Ilkay Gündogan .
The bookmakers see ManCity as a big favourite, which is hardly surprising given their 24 wins in 27 Premier League games.
With a 57% chance of keeping a clean sheet (sharing top place this match day with Chelsea), savvy managers could also have ManCities defence on their shopping list.
Stoke, who are second-bottom in the table, have only managed 3 games without a loss. It’s done and dusted.
The Captain: Aguero
The Argentine goal-machine, is vying with Cristiano Ronaldo for first place in the 2018 global scorers list and is in great form. In 2018 he scored an average of exactly 1.0 goals per match! For me that you really need to look long and hard for reasons not to nominate him as a captain. However on this game day and against this opponent there are very few reasons not to trust Aguero .
The bookies give him a 62.1% chance of scoring, the best chances of this match day.
The insider tip: Theo Walcott & amp; Seamus Coleman
My insider tips are two players who are already well known to fantasy football managers. Seamus Coleman is back on the ball after his long injury, almost seamlessly following on his good performance from last year, when he was one of the most popular defenders because of his threat to goal. Last week he was also able to collect points with an assist.
Theo Walcott has immediately become a mainstay of his team following his move. Almost every Everton attack goes through him. I trust him to put in a strong performance against Brighton.

Tips from Tim
Team: West Ham United
Even though I landed myself well and truly in it last week with my tip on the Hammers, I keep the faith, yes there’s lurking danger, but David Moyes’ team is in dire need of a victory, while Burnley is in the league’s no-man’s land.
Arnautovic and Antonio are also in great form, which clearly speaks for West Ham. Moyes shouldn’t even think of putting Antonio on the bench again. The England international has been called off the bench twice in a row, which should more than qualify him for a starting position.
In defence Aaron Cresswell is very interesting and could once again provide an assist. All in all, I think fantasy football managers who bet on the Hammers will not go wrong on this match day.
If I have to eat my own words again, I promise to improve and to choose another team next week.
Captain: Sergio Aguero
Aguero was rested in the Champions League and should be fresh and motivated for the game against second-bottom Stoke. This by itself speaks for the Argentinian goal machine.
Alternatively, Kevin De Bruyne would not be a bad choice, he was also rested. If you want to change the team, you could use Harry Kane, but it’s hard to gauge how the Spurs will perform after their exit from the Champions League.
Chelsea players also have some appeal but with the important game in the Champions’ League and key players expected to be rested, I would not advise anyone to bet on the Blues.
The insider tip: van la Parra
He is currently in an impressive form and has put in convincing performances for EPL newcomer Huddersfield. The scores in the last few games confirm his clear rise in form. Striker Steve Mounie might also be interesting for fantasy football managers.
Van La Parra has fired more shots inside the penalty box & attempts on target than any team-mate in that period.

Otherwise, I can only agree with the insider tips from my colleague Herbert, because I think his tips are also very useful! For those who would like to do something more unusual, Swansea’s newcomer Andre Ayew could be interesting, as he has found both his way back to the Swans and his old form.
