Despite dropping £0.2m in value since GW5 and finding himself benched the following week, Raheem Sterling still remains a must-have in our eyes.

You simply cannot ignore an FPL asset who has just produced a Champions League hat-trick, a brace of assists and a Man of the Match performance during a 5-1 victory.

Furthermore, Sterling appears least likely to fall victim to squad rotation after Pep Guardiola was quoted during his post-match interview: “His physicality is incredible, he’s strong. The day after the game he could play another game. His regeneration is incredible.”

Following a three-game drought, the 24-year-old has tallied 14 points since Gameweek 7, suggesting a steady return to form in the Premier League, and considering his European heroics we can’t help but stick with Raheem.

Manchester City will host Aston Villa in GW10, which brings us on to Sterling’s teammate, Sergio Agüero.

The Argentine is another big hitter under Guardiola who has endured a slight drop in form after suffering blanks against Everton and Wolves, and falling to the bench against Crystal Palace last gameweek.

However, following a prolonged rest, Agüero also went on to provide a midweek masterclass, scoring a brace against Atalanta at the Etihad in the Champions League.

The City legend has now amassed 12 goal involvements in 10 appearances across all competitions so far this season, with eight of those contributions recorded at the Cityzens’ home ground.

The goals against Atalanta will have been a confidence booster ahead of a home encounter against Dean Smith’s side considering his impressive record, with the evergreen 31-year-old having scored six goals in his last four against the Midlands clubs - five of those in his last three games on home soil.

With back-to-back matches at the Etihad for Guardiola’s force, you might easily regret selling the £12.2m striker this round.

And then there’s Nicolas Pépé - securing a Europa League victory over Vitoria de Guimaraes with two beautifully taken free-kicks, and bagging the Man of the Match award in the process. That might just be the launch of a dazzling Arsenal career for their £72m summer signing. 

It has been a slow start to life in north London for the Ivorian international, yet the Gunner will be overflowing with confidence ahead of a home encounter with Crystal Palace.

The 24-year-old former Lille winger has secured just two assists and a single goal in the Premier League this campaign but - importantly for this gameweek - all three contributions have been supplied at the Emirates Stadium.

His midweek performance will most definitely have relieved some pressure and it looks as though he’s starting to find his feet. You should definitely keep a close eye on the tricky winger.
