FANTASY football players have been left outraged after Sergio Aguero was not named in Manchester City's matchday squad to face Bournemouth.
The Argentinian is currently the joint-top goalscorer in the Premier League with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on eight strikes apiece.

And with City expected to romp to victory against a Cherries side that have lost three games on the bounce in the top-flight, supporters were confident Aguero would deliver again.
The ex-Atletico Madrid ace boasts a brilliant record against the south coast club, scoring four times in as many games against them.
Aguero has been in scintillating form this season – banging in 12 goals in 17 games in all competitions.
But the 30-year-old will play no part against Eddie Howe's side, with Pep Guardiola revealing the player has a slight muscular problem, and will not be risked.

Fans immediately took to social media to vent their frustration, with one supporter tweeting: "Well this weeks fantasy football is a right off #Aguero."
While another commented: "Aguero is my fantasy captain and he ain't in the City squad. I'm rattled."
Another simply stated: "Deleting my fpl account."
