FPL Gameweek 3 – head-to-head comparisons: Patrick Bamford vs Aleksandar Mitrovic
Both playing for newly promoted teams, these two forwards were in amongst the goals in Gameweek 2 when Leeds welcomed Fulham to Elland Road. Whilst Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.0m) scored twice for the visitors, Patrick Bamford (£5.7m) managed both a goal and two assists for Leeds as the Whites came through and won a 4-3 thriller.
In Gameweek 3, Fulham host Aston Villa, whilst Leeds are away at Sheffield Utd in a Yorkshire derby. A game of such importance to supporters may lead to a more tighter game than Leeds have been used to so far, which may not benefit Bamford. Fulham however, will look directly to Mitrovic to provide the attacking returns in this game and he narrowly gets the nod for us in this head-to-head.
Verdict: Aleksandar Mitrovic
