Should FPL managers own Salah or Mané for upcoming fixtures?

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.

How do they compare for goal threat this season?

    triple up of Leicester keeper, soyuncu and Madison/Vardy any good?

    1. Lindelol
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 21 hours ago

      or Peirera instead of lei gk

    2. Bring back Rafa
      9 days, 21 hours ago

      Ideally Vardy, Soyuncu & Madison if u want Leicester triple. I don't think Schmeichel is great value when you can get Soyuncu cheaper.

      1. Lindelol
        • 1 Year

        I will bring in one of Vardy and Madison. But Pereira looks good

        Cannot agree for sure Perriera 40 points Maddi 34 playing 100 less minutes. Maddi 1 mil more expensive. I am not saying it will continue like this.

    Bottomed:
    Early captaincy thoughts? Not going to own the seemily popular Wilson, Vardy and Tammy (c) options.

    A) Raz (cry)
    B) Auba (shu)
    C) Mane (mun)

    Currently on Raz with KDB (vc) and Lundy first on bench 😀

    1. Hy liverpool

      A

      Were you one of the lucky ones last time with the combo of those 3? 😀

      1. Legend of Rosický
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 21 hours ago

        I'd argue that there was a little bit of skill involved since I had few other vc options and other players on the bench as well 😆

        1. Stormbringer22
          9 days, 21 hours ago

          Hey, didn't say there was no skill involved! Just jammy that Lundy got the haul he did 😀 To answer your question, I would stick the captaincy either on Raz or Mane

          1. Legend of Rosický
            • 1 Year
            9 days, 21 hours ago

            hahah cheers mate. True, Lundy has come off the bench with double digit hauls twice for me this season. Absolute legend

        Oles last game incharge. Could be a Poetic thumping you're right. Final nail in the coffin

        1. Stormbringer22
          9 days, 21 hours ago

          I have said my prediction that once we beat Man U and Spurs in those consecutive games, Ole and Poch will get sacked. That way we would have had 2 Man U manager scalps in consecutive seasons 😀

          1. Legend of Rosický
            • 1 Year
            9 days, 21 hours ago

            hahaha. Poch sacking is unlikely.. It would be great if it happens though.

            But yeah, Ole is done

              This is absolute nonsense. Can you keep your opinions to FPL for the sake of the rest of us 🙂

              1. Legend of Rosický
                • 1 Year
                9 days, 21 hours ago

                Yeah and what exactly did I say wrong?

                  • 1 Year
                  9 days, 21 hours ago

                  I believe that plenty agree that Ole's sacking is imminent.

                2. chilli con kone

                  9 days, 21 hours ago

                  ‘Ole’s last game in charge’, ‘Ollie’s done’

                  Zzzz

                  Your bias opinion on whether or not Ole will be sacked shouldnt be influencing FPL

                  Fair enough if you want to talk about Liverpool’s form and uniteds lack of it in an FPL sense

                  1. chilli con kone

                    I had a nibble but you are clearly just bating people 🙂

                      9 days, 21 hours ago

                      Thats not my intention. It was a light hearted discussion. Sorry if It triggered you, but I still think you are wrong in calling it absolute nonsense.

                  2. Legend of Rosický
                    • 1 Year
                    9 days, 21 hours ago

                    You gonna call everyone out who says Ole is sacking is imminent over the next 2 weeks? Gonna be hard work mate.

                    I would agree that its not necessarily his last game, but that thought that he is going to be sacked or will resign in the very near future isn't "absolute nonsense" by any stretch.

                    Well I am not much of stats man. These things do influence FPL, potential manager sackings, new manager bounce, they all affect FPL. I think you're the biased Manutd supporter in denial here.

                    1. Legend of Rosický

                      9 days, 21 hours ago

                      Anyway, ill return the favor and call you out when he does get sacked in the near future. My guess is that the board my be looking hard and fast for the replacement and possibly closing the deal over the IB. Will save the link to this.

                        You’ve taken this to heart so my apologies. My intention isn’t to be drawn into a debate or call you out but what is ‘absoute nonsense’ was that you were categorically stating it was his last game. I’m an Evertonian not a Manc but just get bored reading sweeping statements in the media and on these forums from people who don’t really understand football. At least they are just trying to sell papers. I won’t call you out on it if he doesn’t get sacked or respond if he does as to be honest I was wrong to say stop for the benefit of everyone else as nobody else cares about our squabble 😀

                      2. Legend of Rosický
                        • 1 Year
                        9 days, 20 hours ago

                        Agreed hahah 🙂 I was wrong as well in saying he is done after this game. Its a possibility more than a certainty, what I meant is I predict he will be gone in the near future.

    5. Slitherene

      Likely red arrow not owning the 3 best value for money forwards.

      1. Legend of Rosický
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 20 hours ago

        Yeah quite possible. But a likely red arrow for me if I take a hit to get one in as well

        1. Slitherene
          • 1 Year
          9 days, 20 hours ago

          Not if you take a hit and put the armband on them.

          1. Legend of Rosický
            • 1 Year
            9 days, 20 hours ago

            I get the point, but the risk of picking the wrong one from 3 is too high. I got Auba in for a hit last game week and put the armband on him, looked great for a haul vs BOU, just like these 3 look this week...and he got his first blank. So a bit hit averse for now.

            1. Slitherene
              • 1 Year
              9 days, 20 hours ago

              Then just hope that your captain choice this week scores well.

              1. Slitherene
                • 1 Year
                9 days, 20 hours ago

                If you still feel like, get in Tammy and captain him.

                  9 days, 20 hours ago

                  I think I will risk it this week. But cheers for your thoughts

    I am going with both Salah and Mane... lets see where that takes me!

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 days, 21 hours ago

      right to the top.

      OR 1 owns both

      1. Stormbringer22
        9 days, 21 hours ago

        Christina, I know your opinion on Salah, but I wonder if there was a choice between going with either Salah + Mane or Sterling + Mane, which option do people reckon scores more? Put the eggs in 2 baskets or rely on the regular starters and (arguably) the better team in the league at the moment?

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          9 days, 21 hours ago

          I reckon one just needs to be open to any possible change in future. I'm on Mane & Kdb for now, but is fully aware that Sterling & Salah are very very explosive and i'm open to getting them back in my team if i feel its required.

          1. Christina.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            9 days, 21 hours ago

            I also own Kun, so he is most likely the one to make way if required. Auba stays for now.

            1. Stormbringer22
              9 days, 21 hours ago

              Cheers! Was just curious on your stance. I am with Salah, KDB, and Auba at the moment but may look into shifting that 11m from Auba into Mane closer to December if things aren't going my way and Mane is on fire.

      2. Slitherene
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 20 hours ago

        And he has played all his chips. Tough season ahead.

      3. Slitherene
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 20 hours ago

        Mane + Salah (Price : 24+) averaged 14 points over the first 8 GW's, not exactly what you expect for that amount of money.

    2. chilli con kone
      • 6 Years
      9 days, 21 hours ago

      I will be joining you after the fixture swing. Still prefer double city for the next 3 despite the uncertainty

  4. Yiod14
    • 3 Years
    9 days, 21 hours ago

    Anyone think mahrez is essential for the next few games if Bernardo gets banned? He is city’s only right winger and on form

    1. mik-hail-tal
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 21 hours ago

      On form? LMAO Did you even watch their game vs Wolves? He was by far the worst on the pitch

      1. Yiod14
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 21 hours ago

        Well he went off and they lost 2-0. The two games before he was good

    2. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 7 Years
      9 days, 21 hours ago

      Not essential but a decent alternative if somebody wants to cut budget from Sterling/KDB.

    3. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 21 hours ago

      Let us hope Bilva does not get banned and I am a Mahrez owner atm.

    4. chilli con kone
      • 6 Years
      9 days, 21 hours ago

      I’m not sure it will change much tbh even with the ban. Pep can play Jesus out there if he wants to rest/rotate Mahrez as well as other options

    5. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Mahrez was awful in the 59 min he played against wolves, just awful.

    Cantwell and Pukki
    To
    Mount and Connolly

    -4pts

    Take the hit?

    1. Hy liverpool

      No

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 21 hours ago

      Cantwell and Pukki offer better value than Mount and Connolly IMO

    3. Slitherene
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      No

    4. hueycho
      9 days, 18 hours ago

      Dunno who Connolly is but yes imo

  6. EWH2020
    • 5 Years
    9 days, 21 hours ago

    Son and Pukki

    to

    Mount and Wilson -4

    Take the hit?

    1. onceuponatyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 21 hours ago

      If you've got a time machine and can harvest points that have been and gone, then yes.

      Honestly, there's probably a case to go from Mount and Wilson to Son and Pukki...

      Not sure it's worth a hit.

    2. Slitherene
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Wait for another GW. If Pukki blanks, sell. If Son scores, sell.

  7. Kopkloppers

    How would you go about getting a Salah/Mane if you have:
    Henderson Pope
    Perriera TAA Ota Soyuncu Lund
    Cantwell KDB Mount Maddi McGinn
    Auba Kun Tammy

    Cheers

    1. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 21 hours ago

      Hard to argue with losing Auba or Kun considering their short term fixtures. Which one would you lose?

      1. bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 days, 21 hours ago

        That makes no sense. Let me try again. It's not easy to lose Auba or Kun considering their short term fixtures

      2. Millie7
        • 5 Years
        9 days, 21 hours ago

        I would say Auba because Arsenal are poor, but then is Kun's game time about to be effected after the last result?

    2. Alberto Tomba
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 days, 21 hours ago

      It looks like you have a great side already - so with their next four fixtures, why do you want them in?

      Liverpool also have a big international club competition coming up which I think many players will have one eye on, and be tired from afterwards.

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 days, 20 hours ago

        Looking at inevitable planning.

    3. Slitherene
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      I'd consider that after GW 13, for sure.

    4. TAT
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Auba to a cheaper striker, IMO. He's left to do anything himself on the pitch; he gets no service at all.

  8. Millie7

    Heaton*
    Trent - Ota - Kelly - Digne

            "1) Invest your money on midfielders and strikers. Expensive goalkeepers and defenders are a waste.
            2) Get off to a strong start and use your bonuses early - it means you won't lose interest and gets points on the board.
            3) Keep an eye on big teams with good players under performing. "I'm looking at Spurs now, they can't get any worse and have Watford coming up."
            4) Steer away from Manchester City. "You never know who the manager is going to pick".
            5) Trust your eyes and hope for luck."

                'And now, he’s a Fantasy Football expert.

                Incredibly, this is only Tanner’s second season playing the game.'

                “I hadn’t even done fantasy football before last season. My lad William set up a league with his mates and I joined that but I didn’t really know the rules,"

                'Get off to a strong start and use your bonuses (chips) early - it means you won't lose interest and gets points on the board'.

                So 8 weeks in and he's an 'expert'

                Lol

              The only thing I am not 100% convinced about is using all the chips early. Having said that, he is OR 1 and I am not 😀

                • 2 Years
                9 days, 21 hours ago

                He will finish somewhere around 1k for sure. Maybe top 500. Or even better, top 100

                Having a good start is absolutely true

                1. Stormbringer22
                  9 days, 20 hours ago

                  Oh, by all means he probably will. Not arguing at all that having a good start is important. I've had a terrible start and don't even have hopes of finishing in top 500K. I should maybe look into using the TC and BB chips no longer on DGWs. It never works as well as I want it to...

                  9 days, 20 hours ago

                  He won't finish anywhere near top 1000 having already spunked all of his chips

                  1. Legend of Rosický
                    • 1 Year
                    9 days, 20 hours ago

                    Agree. WIll struggle to finish inside the top 10K

                    9 days, 20 hours ago

                    TBH he's already nailed the TC better than I have most years in DGWs...

                    Free Hit / Bench Boost will hurt him though.

                      • 9 Years
                      9 days, 20 hours ago

                      Everyone else's TC will also hurt him as he no longer has one

                  3. The Overthinker - I blame R…
                    • 2 Years
                    9 days, 20 hours ago

                    You can't be this sure.

                    Maybe his TC was a success and the people below him will fail in their TC chip ( remember sane?) .

                    The chasers might have a failed bb too.

                    So you cannot tell anything

    Interesting that GW20 (28 Dec) fixtures repeat so early in reverse in GW24 (21 Jan).

    Last weeks fixtures (GW8) repeat in GW19.

    So Wolves for example will have played Man City home and away before they have even faced Liverpool at all.

    Is it possible to bet on someone *not* to score?

    Getting Wilson in next week and the world-class troll is guaranteed to blank against Norwich's sieve defence.

    1. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Yeah its called a Lay bet

    2. caldracula
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Don't think so, can't imagine the odds would be any good anyway

      1. FPLGraham
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 20 hours ago

        True. just might make me feel 0.1% better.

        1. Legend of Rosický
          • 1 Year
          9 days, 20 hours ago

          Well you can, just place a Lay bet on Wilson scoring. The odds are usually not too different from the odds of backing the player to score.

          1. Legend of Rosický
            • 1 Year
            9 days, 20 hours ago

            Lay bet basically means betting on the something to not happen.

              Yeah I understand this, not sure you can do it in your typical bookies or online bookie, it has to be on an exchange, no?

                • 1 Year
                9 days, 20 hours ago

    Who’d you take in their prime FPL wise, Alonso or Baines? Just having a look through Baines old stats on Transfermarkt out of curiosity, he had 5G 10A in one season, and another with 1G 9A, you’d be happy with this from a low priced midfielder, throw in clean sheets aswell, but Alonso was a monster

    1. FPLGraham
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Baines for pens.

    2. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Prime Alonso wouldn't get the kind of points he used to in this Chelsea defence. So in the current set up, Baines.

    current wildcard team guys, advice please...

    pope (mcgovern)
    trent, soyuncu, rico, (lund), (kelly)
    kdb, sterling, mount, maddison, (dendoncker)
    aguero, abraham, wilson

    1. Drop the Dendoncker

      What advice do you need? It's the template.

      1. gooner_112233445566

    2. Offs!de
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      I think Agu and KDB are enough coverage from City. I would go for one of Salah or Mane instead of Sterling.

  21. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Now Heaton is also injuried - lucky I have McGover...☺

  23. Peter Ouch
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Kdb ownership from 43% to 31% without a price drop!

    This is a joke

    1. Drop the Dendoncker
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Yes

    2. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      10m for a 12m player = bargain

      Didn’t hear to many complaints pre season suggesting he was underpriced.

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 20 hours ago

        Nothing to do with his price.
        It's all about how the system works.

        I would have been moaning even if he was on £5.6

        1. Nigel Knows
          • 1 Year
          9 days, 20 hours ago

          FPL decide how the system works. Expectation, previous trends, true value, adjusted value, supply and demand, future predictions, external and internal forces, market valuation, and more.

          Don’t let it get you down. International break is traditionally slow and very slow first week.

          I feel price falls are good way of offering a player at a discount. Kevin was discount led at 9.5, so many jumped on. Additionally chose to keep.

    3. Offs!de
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      ridiculous

    4. DAZZ
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Still underpriced at 10M mate. No way he drops, hes a 10.5M-11M player.

    5. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Would be a bigger joke if he rises another 0.3 when he gets back to 43%

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 20 hours ago

        Very likely to happen

        1. Legend of Rosický
          • 1 Year
          9 days, 20 hours ago

          Maybe a joke but no complaints here 😆

      Maybe

  28. Gringo Kid

    • 1 Year

    Which is best combo for next 5?

    A) Cantwell and Callum Wilson
    B) Hudson Odoi and Pukki

    1. The Units
      • 9 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      A should get more points.

  29. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    9 days, 20 hours ago

    Best move here chaps?

    A) Coleman -> Boly/Rico (save FT)
    B) Salah & Pukki -> Maddison & Aguero/Auba
    C) Salah & Pukki -> KDB/Son & Vardy
    D) Coleman, Salah & Pukki -> Rico, Son & Auba (-4)

    Ryan
    TAA, Digne, Zinchenko, Soyuncu
    Salah, Sterling, Mount
    Wilson, Abraham, Pukki

    Button, Cantwell, Deondocker, Coleman
    Bank 0.0m, 2FT, WC available

    1. The Units
      • 9 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      A. But would wait for injury news.

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Is Salah and Pukki (8 pts value in tfr) really needed to go to Maddi and Kun?
      Wait on Son. He has a habit of missing games after the Int break.
      KDb for sure but probably sacrifice Sterling.

      I just did Son to KDB

  30. DAZZ
    • 5 Years
    9 days, 20 hours ago

    So 3 players that will do well this gameweek? Im going with Maddison Vardy, and Chelsea boys, potentially Mount

    1. The Units
      • 9 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Only 3 players will do well?

      1. The Units
        • 9 Years
        9 days, 20 hours ago

        Mane, Tammy and KdB for me.

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Perriera dark horse with as much clean sheet potential as anyone. If he is top amongst defenders with the tough games played so far and playing like TAA; I would choose him over Maddi who flatters to deceive over the last 46 games.
