After two Gameweeks, if you've had both Sergio Aguero and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in your Fantasy team, then I envy you.

Both players have scored in their opening two games of the season to deliver precious Fantasy points for anyone who has picked them.

But if you put both the Manchester City and Manchester United strikers in your XI, you do lose out elsewhere because something has to give in terms of how you spread out your budget across your squad - especially in midfield.

It's been one of the main talking points so far in Fantasy Premier League with our listeners in the Team 33 league.

Eoin Sheahan and Tommy Rooney picked up on that in this week's Team 33 Fantasy Premier League segment regarding the pros and cons of picking both Aguero and Zlatan rather than just one of them at a time.

As Eoin points out, "It's absolutely going to kill your midfield. I'd stand by what we said at the start of the season because you have to go in with a balanced squad."
