FPL Double Gameweek 26 – head-to-head comparisons: Heung-Min Son vs Marcus Rashford
Both Heung-Min Son (£9.5m) and Spurs suffered a disappointing Gameweek 25, as the North London side fell to a 2-1 defeat away at local rivals West Ham. With just one return in his last six gameweeks, owners of Son will be hoping for a change in fortune considering that Spurs face favourable fixtures on paper in Double Gameweek 26, with Burnley (H) and Fulham (a) the opposition.
Marcus Rashford (£9.6m) is coming off the back of a 12 point haul after a goal and an assist in Man Utd's 3-1 victory over Newcastle last weekend. Rashford has accrued 28 FPL points in his last four gameweeks and like Son, boasts two fixtures to his name in Double Gameweek 26 vs Chelsea (a) and Crystal Palace (a). Rashford is in superior form, but Son has the better two fixtures so this is a tough decision. With a £0.1m cheaper price-tag and a much higher ownership percentage, we're ultimately inclined to play it safe here and plump for Son, with Bruno Fernandes providing the Man Utd midfield cover in our team.
Verdict: Heung-Min Son
