Eight Gameweeks into the 2019/20 season and Sadio Mané (£11.7m) has scored more points than Mohamed Salah (£12.5m).
The Senegalese international has 57 to his name, coming from five goals and two assists.
Meanwhile, his Egyptian colleague, still the most expensive Fantasy asset, has found the net just four times on top of his three assists.
That has made for a total score of 55, two short of his cheaper colleague.
That difference of £0.8m in price between the two players exacerbates the concern Fantasy managers have right now.
According to the official FPL website, Mané is offering a season value of 4.9, compared to Salah’s 4.4.
Thus far, those who spent the best part of an extra £1.0m on the Egyptian international have not got what they paid for compared to those who went with Mané.
With the second international break coming at an ideal time, it means we can assess how the two assets have played so far this season and work out which of them will prove the better option moving forward.
