It's been a bit of a season to forget so far for Fantasy Premier League legend Sergio Aguero.

It even got to the point that the Manchester City striker saw his place up front taken by newcomer Gabriel Jesus.

That would have been unthinkable before Pep Guardiola rocked into town.

But an injury to Jesus means Aguero is back and guaranteed to start. And he started by delivering goals in the midweek Champions League thriller against Monaco. 

Due to Manchester United's involvement in an EFL Cup final on Sunday, the derby that was meant to be scheduled has been postponed which means City are not in action until they face Sunderland on March 5th.

Either way as Team 33 Fantasy Premier League pundit Eoin Sheahan says Aguero's back in all our thoughts again for our teams in the medium to short term. 

"Suddenly, Manchester City's assets in general have come back to the fore now," he said on this week's podcast.

"The reason why I'm suddenly very taken by the idea of Sergio Aguero is because Manchester City this week have announced that they potentially could have a double gameweek 27."  

But there are things to watch out for in terms of when you bring him back in.

Meanwhile, Ireland's Robbie Brady comes in at €5.5 for Burnley and given his set piece threat and a goal already under his belt, he could be an option.

Eoin gives his take on Brady on the podcast which you can listen to below or stream/download on iTunes:
