FPL Gameweek 14 – head-to-head comparisons: Marcus Rashford vs Raul Jimenez
The injury to Tammy Abraham has caused FPL managers to rethink their forward lines and for those looking to move the Chelsea striker on, Marcus Rashford (£8.6m) and Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) represent two of the most enticing options in a similar price bracket.
When looking at the Gameweek 14 fixtures in isolation, it is arguably Rashford who has the kinder fixture with his Man Utd side hosting an Aston Villa outfit who have lost five of their six away matches in the Premier League this season. Stretching that back further, Villa have a dire record when playing away in the division, having won just once in their last 24 away Premier League outings stretching back to their last stint in the top flight. Could Rashford be set to capitalise?
Perhaps, but we're still edging Jimenez here. The Mexican has been in fine form both domestically and in Europe and Wolves now appear to have mastered juggling domestic football with Europa League commitments. The midlands side host Sheffield Utd in Gameweek 14, and while the Blades have been solid in defence for most of the season, they looked vulnerable in conceding three times to Man Utd last week and Jimenez is poised to reward his multitude of new owners.
Verdict: Raul Jimenez
