Aubameyang for me.
Haven't decided on VC yet, I don't have Sterling or Aguero, so either Salah or Pukki (not that it will matter thoug, what are the chances Auba won't play? )

Those statistics are a bit all over the place, he has scored 13 goals in his last 8 starts at home against bottom 14 opposition.

These games didn't happen consecutively so the "5 braces in a row" is a bit far fetched... one of those games is this season, the rest are last season.

Liverpool were fortunate last week against sheff utd, they also played European football during the week where they showed they can and do concede goals, vardy has scored a brace last week and is in ok form, it wouldn't surprise me if Leicester were to have a victory.

I'm pretending I didn't read the previous couple of posts

Mane for me I think.

Have Aguero but can't risk another week of Pep screwing up my captain pick.

FWIW - I think if Liverpool score early, they could lightly batter Leicester.

Not sure what any of that has to do with Mane potentially scoring goals? Liverpool conceding goals is immaterial to him as he's not a defender. And he did miss two sitters against Sheff Utd that he would normally score so he'll likely get among the chances again as he does most games.

That said I wouldn't captain him myself but it wouldn't be a shock if he came away with 2 goals against Leicester either.

Auba or Sterling. City could destroy Wolves but I’m leaning towards Auba who should get a return.

I had a choice of Salah, Sterling and Auba. Glad I didn’t waste time putting too much thought into it
