Sergio Aguero received the plaudits after celebrating his 300th Manchester City appearance with the opening goal of a 5-0 win at Cardiff last Saturday but he may be taking up too much of the first-scorer market for the match against Brighton.

Aguero, the 5-2 favourite, has netted 25 Premier League goals since the start of last season, while Raheem Sterling has helped himself to 21.

Sterling's finishing qualities are clearly not in Aguero's class but he gets a lot of chances and looks attractively priced to net first.
