FPL Gameweek 9 – head-to-head comparisons: Jack Grealish vs Mason Mount
Gameweek 8 saw Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish (£5.9m) finally burst into life with his first goal of the season away at Norwich. Chelsea’s Mason Mount (£6.8m) continued his consistency from attacking midfield after scoring his fourth goal of the season against Southampton, a sweet moment for the lifelong Portsmouth fan. He’ll be looking to continue that consistency in Gameweek 9 as Chelsea host Newcastle at Stamford Bridge. Originally £6.0m alongside Grealish, Mount’s price has risen by £0.8m since the start of the season which reflects his popularity and form. He has to be preferred over Grealish, who despite having a decent Gameweek 9 fixture at home to Brighton, has struggled at Villa Park, only registering one assist so far and can’t provide that reliability that Mount has over the course of the season.
Verdict: Mason Mount
