FPL Gameweek 5 – head-to-head comparisons: Patrick van Aanholt vs Lucas Digne
Despite conceding two goals in Gameweek 4, Lucas Digne (£6.1m) still managed to gain five FPL points after an assist for Everton against Wolves. He is one of only three defenders to be involved in 10+ goals this calendar year in the Premier League.
After his winning goal against Man Utd in Gameweek 3, Patrick Van Aanholt (£5.6m) followed that up with a clean sheet at home to Aston Villa, but another intimidating away trip faces the Dutch international in Gameweek 5, with Spurs the opposition for Crystal Palace. Digne also faces a tough assignment with Everton away at Bournemouth. The potential for attacking returns favours Digne in this head-to-head, with Bournemouth having conceded six goals in their last two gameweeks.
Verdict: Lucas Digne
