FPL Gameweek 9 – head-to-head comparisons: Teemu Pukki vs Wesley

In the battle between the two strikers who came up against each other on Saturday, it was Aston Villa’s Wesley (£6.0m) who won out in flying colours. The Belgian scored two goals and provided an assist in his side’s 5-1 win over Norwich City, whose star striker Teemu Pukki (£7.1m) failed to net a goal or assist for the third successive gameweek. The first bandwagon of the season, Pukki is seeing his ownership dramatically decrease during the international break ahead of Gameweek 9 that sees the Canaries travel to Bournemouth. Wesley will be brimming with confidence after his performance against Norwich and could have done even better had he not missed a penalty to seal his hat-trick. A tasty fixture at home to Brighton awaits for Villa in Gameweek 9 and Wesley looks a good bet to back those FPL gains up with another haul at Villa Park.

Verdict: Wesley
