Remember when Marcus Rashford was almost a Dream Team necessity?
The Man United man was the perfect mid-price striker to complement the Premier League big boys and free up funds elsewhere.
Like many of the United squad, Rashford was a man reborn when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took the reins.
In Ole’s first 10 games at the helm he registered six goals, an assist and two Star Man awards.
But the new manager bounce has lost its spring and the purple patch is looking decidedly off colour.
Since scoring at Leicester in early February, Rashford has blanked in eight of his 12 appearances.
Despite his shoddy form, the 21-year-old remains the fifth most selected striker with 17.9% ownership among Dream Team gaffers.
With Everton, Man City and Chelsea all on the horizon the fixtures don’t get much easier for Rashford and United after they were taught a lesson by Barcelona.
At £4.1m he still occupies the mid-price range, so we’ve suggested five attackers below who would be decent alternatives in the final few weeks of the season.
1 Roberto Firmino (£4.5m)
A little more expensive but a man finding form when it really matters, Firmino has scored or assisted in four of his last five appearances and posted three double-figure totals in his last seven.
Liverpool play Porto, Cardiff and Huddersfield in the next 10 days.
2 Raul Jimenez (£4.3m)
Arguably the signing of the season, Jimenez has 16 goals and seven assists in all competitions in his debut campaign in England.
His link up with Diogo Jota has been exceptional and they will be licking their lips at the prospect of home games against Brighton and Arsenal.
3 Jamie Vardy (£3.9m)
Leicester have some tricky games on paper but if there’s one man who relishes the big occasions, it’s Vardy.
Only Sergio Aguero has more goals against the top-six clubs than Vardy does in his career, so he won’t be intimidated by Arsenal, Man City or Chelsea.
4 Salomon Rondon (£4.2m)
Rondon is a firm favourite amongst the Toon army and his nine goals are a big reason why Newcastle are 99% safe for another season.
Games against three teams around them – Brighton, Fulham and Southampton – are right up Rondon’s street.
5 Andre Gray (£2.3m)
A left-field option but one you might consider now circumstances have changed.
Troy Deeney’s three-match suspension after his red card against Arsenal means Gray will should Watford’s goalscoring burden… and he’s mighty cheap.
