Discussion:

Son has had a couple of good weeks, with double point hauls, but the coming Gameweek is a blank one for Tottenham.

Discussion:
After the red card, Ayew will not be playing until 14th April, which is Gameweek 34.

Verdict:
Getting Ayew out of the team is the only course of action at the moment.

 

Harry Kane:

Points in the previous fixtures:
GW 28: Crystal Palace [a] – 6
GW 29: Huddersfield [h] – 5
GW 30: Bournemouth [a] – 1

Upcoming fixtures:
GW 31 – Blank GW 32 – Chelsea [a] GW 33 – Stoke City [a]

Discussion:
With the combination of the Blank Gameweek and the injury, Kane is not going to be of any use in the next fixture.

Verdict:
Getting him out of the team for this Gameweek may be the best idea.

 

Harry Kane

 

Sergio Aguero:

Points in the previous fixtures:
GW 28: Arsenal [a] – 5
GW 29 – Chelsea [h] – 2
GW 30 – Stoke City [a] – 0

Upcoming fixtures:
GW 31 – Blank GW 32 – Everton [a] GW 33 – Manchester United [h]

Discussion:
Aguero suffered a minor knee injury in training but will be back for the next Gameweek. However, he has a blank in Gameweek 31.

Verdict:
With the return of Gabriel Jesus, Kun Aguero will be prone to some rotation, especially considering Manchester City are still in the Champions League. A straight swap with Firmino is a viable option.
