Both Roberto Firmino (£9.7m) and Raul Jimenez (£7.8m) have enticing fixtures in Gameweek 27, with Firmino's Liverpool facing West Ham and Jimenez's Wolves hosting Norwich, who currently sit bottom of the Premier League. However, a question mark may hover over each with Firmino having not scored a league goal at Anfield this season and Jimenez having gone two league games without an attacking return.

Ultimately, Jimenez represents the better value pick in our eyes at £1.9m cheaper than Firmino. He has not gone three Premier League matches in a row without an attacking return since back in Gameweek 7 and scored against Norwich in Wolves' reverse fixture against the Canaries, whilst Firmino failed to score against West Ham at the London Stadium.

Verdict: Raul Jimenez
