Welcome to the first of many player comparison’s here on the PlayON blog. Every week we will be bringing a different player comparison to aid you in picking your team for the upcoming Gameweek. First up we have the tale of two £16 million summer signings.
There were quite a lot of similiarities between Mario Balotelli and Danny Welbeck’s transfers this summer. Two strikers with Premier League pedigree, no longer wanted by the clubs they grew up supporting. In addition, both of them are capable of both brilliance and mediocrity in equal measure and they were even bought for the same price. With this in mind we decided to compare how the two have started off at their respective clubs.
