FPL Gameweek 27 – head-to-head comparisons: Nicolas Pepe vs Bruno Fernandes
Nicolas Pepe (£9.1m) put in arguably his best performance for Arsenal as he made a huge impact with an inspired display against Newcastle last week. Pepe bagged his fourth goal of the season whilst he also chipped in with two assists in the 4-0 triumph which contributed to a brilliant haul of 17 points, his highest tally of the season, and he is surely set to retain his place in the starting XI for the Gunners’ home game against Everton.
Fresh off his first positive contribution for Man Utd in their 2-0 win against Chelsea in Gameweek 26, Bruno Fernandes (£8.0m) will be confident of building on his eight-point performance. He provided an assist in that game and while a home game against Watford presents the Portuguese man with a chance to add to that, it is difficult to overlook Pepe who will be on a high after such an impressive contribution last week.
Verdict: Nicolas Pepe
