3 – Sergio Agüero
Club: Manchester City
The international break has come as a time for reflection in South London, with the latest stat doing the rounds concluding that Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has amassed just 22 points from a possible 90 since the start of 2016.
Manchester City are next on the calendar for the Eagles, a team whom Pardew has defeated before in his time at Selhurst Park, but, predictably, it’s Pep Guardiola’s side that enter the clash as overwhelming favourites.
It could well turn out to be one of those afternoons for Sergio Agüero too, hitting a brace in the Citizens’ last game on the road and returning a little fresher from international duty than one might have expected, as Argentina overlooked the striker’s inclusion altogether in Tuesday’s 3-0 win over Colombia for the South American World Cup Qualifiers.
