We advised that you stayed clear of both Mason Greenwood (£7.5m) and Phil Foden (£6.5m) for Gameweek 2 after their Icelandic exploits! Had you listened to us regarding Greenwood, you would be thanking us after he was left on the bench for Man Utd's match against Crystal Palace. After being brought on at half-time, Greenwood only managed the 1 FPL point, as the Red Devils went down 1-3 to the Eagles. However, had you decided to leave Foden out following our advice, you'd be sending expletives our way! The Man City midfielder started and scored in their 1-3 win away at Wolves.

Gameweek 3 sees Man Utd travel to Brighton where Greenwood will be expected to start, whilst Man City host Leicester. Greenwood scored in United's game away at Brighton last season and looks sharp, having registered both a goal and an assist in his side's 0-3 win over Luton in their midweek Carabao Cup clash. Foden will be heavily fancied to score himself against Leicester, however his place in the side will always be a question mark under Pep Guardiola's rotation policy. For that reason, we're edging towards Greenwood in this head-to-head comparison.

Verdict: Mason Greenwood
