Diego Costa is back under Antonio Conte, he looks back to his best with the new pressure from Michy Batshuayi for his starting space. The three games coming up are three where you would back Costa to score and that makes him a very good replacement for Aguero. He’s also £3.3m cheaper than Aguero, so making this swap would allow for you to make an upgrade elsewhere if you so wish.

Costa has however continued his temper from previous seasons into this one and because of that having him in your team brings an element of risk. Although he’s not often caught at the time of the incident (which avoids FPL deductions) Costa is more than capable of picking up a yellow or even a red card, so maybe refrain from making him your captain just in case. We all have nightmares about double negatives.
