FPL Gameweek 5 – head-to-head comparisons: Jamie Vardy vs Marcus Rashford
It looks set to be another goal-laden season for Jamie Vardy
(£8.9m) under Brendan Rodgers, with his brace for Leicester City against Bournemouth in Gameweek 4 taking his goal tally to three for the season. He now has 24 FPL points in his last two gameweeks and faces Man Utd at Old Trafford in Gameweek 5. He will also face fellow English striker Marcus Rashford (£8.5m), who in comparison has accrued only teo FPL points in his last two gameweeks after not only failing to score in both matches, but also missing a penalty in Gameweek 3. When you also take into account his strong record against 'Big Six' teams, Vardy has to be favoured to score again in this game against a Man Utd defence who have recorded only one clean sheet in their last 19 competitive games.
Verdict: Jamie Vardy
