    I see Jesus as a no 10.
    As good as his alround play is I never see him constantly trouble the back 4 like Rashford / Martial / Sane / Mane. Its all a little too deep

    Jesus would be the safer bet but Rashford has the potential to explode into a really elite player, IMO. Not sure he will though so I've gone with Jesus.

    Jesus by a long way. Rashford will be a nearly man whereas Jesus is already a top striker, so much so that he'll reduce the amount of game-time Aguero will get this season. Anyone who plays ahead of Aguero is no mug.

    I think it's pretty obvious that Jesus is the better footballer. Rashford is decent but not much better than that. I can't remember a more overrated footballer frankly.

    I don't recall saying that. I'm saying that comparing players as you're doing is pointless.

    Jesus is the finished article, Rashford has to prove that he has all the facets to become a top player, in my opinion.

    The thing with the Caf is that it has started to believe Rashford belongs in that bracket of rare talent which he clearly isn't.

    The kid is a decent talent but he's constantly compared to potential ballon d'or or top 5 players in the world which is a huge stretch.

    Phrasing one player from one club in order to not look biased when criticizing another player from the same club. It's pretty popular in caf.

    Jesus, comfortably. Rashford is still raw.

    Currently? Jesus is clearly the better player and striker and that's not an insult to Rashford at all.

    How is Jesus the better player so far? I haven't checked but I assume Rashford has scored more goals, and very important ones for us in the league and our EL winning campaign.

    Jesus has done very little to justify the hype IMO.

    I see Jesus right now as more of a threat within the penalty box, Rashford is a bigger threat outside the box. Obviously Jesus has been scoring more frequently of late, he is more efficient even though he doesn't create as many chanches. While Rashford has shown he has more in his locker, in terms of a composite skillset which allows him to play both out wide and through the centre.

    People seem to have forgotten that Jesus had a life before he went to Man City. Rashford has not scored more career goals.

    Rashford has scored 19 in 74. G.Jesus has scored 35 in 94. No spin implied, just numbers.

    There it is. Now for the people that say he is limited, they clearly never saw him play at Palmeiras. The guy is an outstanding talent and to be honest I'm jealous he is at city. Scored 2 from LW and 3 from RW. The guy can dribble also and has some fantastic moments of skill.

    It was a silly comparison as there was only ever one winner and hopefully in the next few years Rashford will develop more and have a far better more rounded game. As right now he's not even better than Martial and Jesus keeps Aguero out of the city team. That should also tell another story.

    Playing in Brazil is a completely different kettle of fish than in the PL and Euro club competitions. Rashford has been playing out wide too while Jesus plays in his preferred position. Yes you might be right that he has more potential but disagree regarding achievements so far.

    Rashford: 1 goal, 1 assist in 176 minutes
    Jesus: 1 goal in 203 minutes

    Clear as day Rashford is far superior

    I know he's talented and all, but he's not the Messiah.

    I agree. As much as I like to see Rashford doing better than other top young players, i think he is not as capable as others like Dembele, Asensio, other DEmbele, or Jesus. Jesus has much better all round gameplay than Rashford. It was just last season when he struggled to score. But the lad seems to have a good attitude and work ethics, these are the qualities that go long way.
