FPL Gameweek 2 – head-to-head comparisons: Riyad Mahrez vs Paul Pogba

Three assists in the 5-0 rout of West Ham, Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) finally looked like living up to his £60m price tag. The potential issue with Mahrez from a FPL perspective is will he play? It is difficult to predict whom Pep will rotate from week to week and it seems highly unlikely that Bernardo Silva (£8.0m) and Sergio Aguero (£12.0m) will both be on the bench again in GW2. Paul Pogba (£8.5m) on the other hand overs the security of minutes to go with attacking intent. No other player in the United’s midfield even coming close to his talent level. At this stage of the season, it is important to have players that are first choice as opposed to ones who may or may not play.

Verdict: Paul Pogba
