Both Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) and Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) begin their Premier League campaigns in Gameweek 2 for Man City and Man Utd respectively. Last season, Mahrez managed to accrue 175 FPL points with 11 goals and 14 assists while Rashford accumulated 17 goals, 8 assists and 177 FPL points.

Mahrez faces a tricky assignment in Gameweek 2 with Man City away at Wolves. Rashford however, plays at home as Man Utd welcome Crystal Palace at Old Trafford. There have been question marks over Rashford's fitness with rumours of an ankle injury, however he is expected to play and with a far easier fixture on paper than Mahrez, he is favoured in this head-to-head.

Verdict: Marcus Rashford
