FPL Gameweek 5 – head-to-head comparison: Harry Kane vs Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
The North London derby saw both Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) find the net in Gameweek 4. Kane continued his imperious record from the penalty spot, whilst Aubameyang made it three goals in four Premier League games with the equaliser that saw the game finish 2-2. Both premium strikers will be expected to score once again in Gameweek 5. Kane is involved in another London derby with Spurs at home to Crystal Palace, whilst Arsenal travel to a Watford side that will be playing their first match under new manager Quique Sanchez Flores, who returns for a second spell in charge of the Hornets. The new manager bounce could make it more difficult than expected for Aubameyang, but we’d give him a better chance of returning a big points haul than Kane. Crystal Palace normally defend well under Roy Hodgson and have started the season well, conceding only two goals in their first four games.
Verdict: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
