Second Striker – Sergio Aguero

Despite being left on the bench for Gabriel Jesus, Aguero is still a top striker that should get some more playing time. His 18 goals this season in all comps lead the team, and he is one of the world’s best in front of goal. I feel that Pep could get a better attacking threat with Aguero and Jesus partnered together. Aguero is still a valuable member of the team and will be counted on with numerous competitions still left to play for this camapaign. Bournemouth’s best strikers are Callum Wilson and Joshua King, but right now I don’t think either would take the spot of Aguero or Jesus.
