Leroy Sane v Marcus Rashford – who should you pick?

With a mouthwatering Manchester derby nearly upon us, which starlet should you choose for your Dream Team?

It’s the small matter of the Manchester derby on Thursday night, with potentially critical consequences for both sides’ Champions League hopes at stake.

City host United at the Etihad hoping to put further distance between themselves and their great rivals.

And while it’s a big night in the Premier League, it’s also a potentially pivotal evening for your Dream Team.

Both Leroy Sane and Marcus Rashford are in red hot form – but which one should you choose?

We examine both sides…

SANE (£4.3m)

Sane had a slow start to his City career after joining from Schalke last summer but since November he’s been in electric form for Pep Guardiola.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss believes the nippy German winger is cut from the same cloth as Lionel Messi and has set about working on his potential.

Sane was shortlised for the PFA Young Player of the Year after a string of consistent performances, notching nine goals and three assists in all competitions this season.

He has 89 points in total in his first season in England – more than Adam Lallana and Wayne Rooney.

RASHFORD (£3.6m)

Rashford has bounced back after going nearly six months without a Premier League goal by finding the net in three of his last four games.

And with Zlatan Ibrahimovic likely to have played his last game for United, they’ll need him to continue his recent hot streak.

The England striker is guaranteed to start at the Etihad and will be buoyed after scoring the winner in the corresponding fixture last season.

Rashford has 99 points this season but, more importantly, 34 of those have come in his last five games alone.

On form he edges the German and he’s the cheaper option.
