FPL Gameweek 26 – head-to-head comparisons: Jack Grealish vs Lucas Moura

Jack Grealish (£6.7m) continues to hold the hopes of Aston Villa's Premier League survival squarely on his shoulders playing in a free role just behind the forward where he can influence a game as much as possible. The Villa fans will look to him once more against Spurs in Gameweek 26, hoping that an attacking return from their captain can help secure a vital three points. Spurs and Lucas Moura (£7.1m) however, will be looking to play the villain of the piece at Villa Park. Moura gained an assist in Gameweek 25, as Spurs secured a tremendous 2-0 win at home to Man City.

As good a player that Moura is, he isn't as important to Spurs as Grealish is for Villa. Whilst Moura could find himself subbed off midway through the second half, Grealish will more than likely remain on for the full 90 minutes. Simply put, the importance of Grealish to the home side leads us to pick him over Moura as, should Villa score, there is a high probability that he will be involved in some way.

Verdict: Jack Grealish
