FPL – head-to-head comparisons: Roberto Firmino vs Jamie Vardy

The main forwards for each of their clubs, Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) and Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) are equally important but offer slightly differing roles for their managers. Vardy is charged with scoring the goals for Leicester, while Firmino links Liverpool’s attack together. Following a slightly lean spell under Claude Puel at the start of last year, the introduction of Brendan Rodgers at Leicester has breathed new life into the English striker. Vardy was the form forward over the final ten games of the season and has actually outscored Firmino in every season the Brazilian has played in the Premier League. At £0.5m cheaper than the Brazilian, this choice seems fairly straightforward.

Verdict: Jamie Vardy
