Today is the battle we’ve all been waiting for. The contest of Tony Pulis’ slick, passing football against Pep Guardiola’s deep defensive block and set piece reliance.
No, wait. That’s not it.
Anyway, Guardiola’s side are in desperate need of a win. The Spaniard is on the longest winless streak of his managerial career to date and a trip to the Hawthorns is not the game you really want in such a situation. Without the utter magnificence of Kevin de Bruyne, an out-of-sorts Sergio Aguero has stepped up to the plate early on for the Citizens.
Of course his sparse goal scoring of late was not going to continue. Putting his side 2-0 up early on, Aguero has a fair few Fantasy Football players frustrated at their decision to drop him.
Nobody ACTUALLY sold Aguero though. You were all trolling. Because that would be nuts. Best Fwd in #FPL. A few blanks doesn't change that…

Okay, maybe a lot of people were sensible and did keep Aguero.
Stop it Aguero

To think that people dared doubt a player of Aguero’s class. Silly, silly people.
Oh the painful feeling after I dropped Aguero from my #FPL team!

Back on the Fantasy train, it seems as though some were foolish enough to drop the league’s best forward. Oh deary me.

Slump for Aguero though, yeah? Yeah? Yeah?!
Narrative has been beaten up, humiliated and thrown out the window. Aguero is one of the best in Premier League history and Guardiola will be ever so thankful that his Argentine star has given them a comfortable afternoon at the Hawthorns.
