Olivier Giroud (£6.5m) has shone for Chelsea since being afforded a run in the starting XI. The Frenchman scored in Gameweek 29 in the Blues' 4-0 thrashing of Everton and now has two goals and an assist in his last three starts for Chelsea. Raul Jimenez (£8.0m) did not enjoy Gameweek 29 in the same way, failing to score as Wolves drew 0-0 at home to Brighton.

Chelsea travel to Aston Villa in Gameweek 30 with the hosts currently owning the worst defence in the Premier League. Wolves are away at West Ham, which suggests that Giroud has the better fixture. However, Jimenez has scored 13 league goals this season, with five goals in his last seven league games. He also scored in his most recent away fixture against Spurs and against another London based club here we're leaning towards him outscoring Giroud, with Wolves scoring six goals in their last three league games.

Verdict: Raul Jimenez
