    This will eventually become a hot topic if it is already not.

    My take is jesus is a better finisher but I would still have rashford because if he improves his finishing ,he offers much more than jesus.

    Because both are forwards and goals is what both will be judged by, I would say jesus is leading the race as of now by a slight margin but I can easily see rashford starting to score for fun.

    Jesus has gotten a bit of a poaching role at City but the lad is a really good footballer overall. With that being said, I find them equal. I really rate Rashford, he's got that incredible directness and X-factor IMO.

    Jesus is going to score more because of how city is set up, whereas Rashford is going to be played out of position. I like the versatility of Rashford though.

    Jesus clearly looks like he's going to be the better player (he already is). I think anyone who says otherwise is a little biased towards our local academy lad.

    Too early to say. Jesus has played roughly 800 minutes of Premier League football, and although he has been far better than Rashford during that time in terms of numbers and stats, he's pretty much guaranteed to have a drop of form at some point. Both look like real talents and I can't really decide on who I think is going to reach the highest level.

    Jesus looks like a god-tier talent- his movement and touch are next level and he has a lot of composure to his finishing.

    Rashford has pace, workrate and a lot of talent but is nowhere near as promising.

    Rashford really isn't a striker. He's a fantastic wide forward, there aren't many who can compare to him. As soon as he fills out he'll be ridiculous.
    Goals are a bonus

    Can't agree with that. Jesus has only played half a season and it's too early to say that he's unarguably going to become the best player based on such a short amount of time.

    Think it's a bit unfair on Rashford. Don't think any of us could compete with Jesus. He walks on water, turns water to wine, resurrects himself and forms a peculiar tradition that involves chocolate eggs that no-one really understands, you know, that kind of stuff.

    Jesus looks way more talented and just has that intelligence to his game and composure where he makes it look easy. Rashford relies on his pace and still makes it look like getting a goal is the hardest thing in the world, and his movement to get in goal scoring chances isnt very good either. His best qualities are his attitude, running with the ball at pace and directness, but his other qualities have a lot to be improved on.

    Martial would be a fairer comparison who will IMO be better.

    Rashford won, he has to keep facing off opponents one by one until he meets Messi in the final.

    Hate to say it but G.Jesus is currently better and has the higher ceiling. I love Rashford but he doesn't have the potential of the likes of Mbappe, Dembele, Asensio, G.Jesus etc

    That's because things have been going his way so far. When a striker is in good form everything looks easy. Jesus will face some bad form at some point and is going to look totally different. I don't think you can claim that he's a better talent based on 7-8 hundred minutes of football. Remember Papiss Demba Cisse during the first half of 2015?

    I'd say ask this in a year and we'll know more

    For now Jesus. He is better finisher which is the most important skill for striker.

    What do you mean? Rashford scored 5 in 32 league games last season, Iheanacho got 4 in 20. That's a single less goal in 12 less games.

    Just because he's been moved on to make way for Jesus (a better talent), doesn't mean he's suddenly a poor player.

    Very, very different players though they both can play similar positions. I'll plump for Jesus as he seems to be more composed. I'd take Rashford at City in a heartbeat though.

    Because he is not good enough to be our first choice striker. In the other hand Jesus is good enough to be just that at City.

    I'm not. I'm just saying, he's not suddenly bad by comparison just because he has left City.

    Haha true.

    G. Jesus has great movement and is a better finisher. Poacher type striker like Mickey Owen.

    Rashford has lightning pace, good movement but needs to improve on his composure in front of goal.

    Meh, I think he suits the wing more than the striker position.

    TBF both outputs are bad. Rashford has an excuse playing as a winger, Iheanacho doesn't have any.

    The only reason people don't rate rashford as much as the rest is he's british, and people don't expect that much of british talents since none of the last great ones went on to confirm/exceed expectations(though in owen's case it was down to injuries tbf)

    I'm sure I could argue that most appearances are substitute appearances and he'd have 12 more games to make up the goals but I really don't mind.
