FPL Gameweek 8 – head-to-head comparisons: Roberto Firmino vs Marcus Rashford
Despite failing to get on the scoresheet in Gameweek 7 against Sheffield Utd, Roberto Firmino (£9.6m) continues to provide an intriguing option for FPL managers wanting Liverpool attacking coverage in their team that doesn’t include Mo Salah or Sadio Mane. With 31 points in his last four gameweeks, he could be the ideal solution for anyone looking for a differential striker. Marcus Rashford (£8.4m) shook off an injury to start for Man Utd against Arsenal and he rewarded owners who stuck by him with an assist. He did look off the pace however and his condition will need monitoring over the coming days, but with an exciting looking Gameweek 8 fixture away at Newcastle on the cards for Rashford, he looks a slightly safer pick than Firmino, who faces Leicester at Anfield.
Verdict: Marcus Rashford
