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.

As this article uses data from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area, only those who have signed up for the 2019/20 season can access it in full.

How do they compare for goal threat this season?

    any suggestions?
    0.6 ITB no FT

    Pope
    TAA, Tomori, Ota
    Mane, KDB, Mount, Maddison
    Tammy, Auba(c), Vardy

    Subs: Button, Cantwell, Lunds, Pieters

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      It is very good , Aubameyang is my bus (c) atm to

    2. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Team looks great but both Tammy and Vardy are better (c)andidates than Auba for this GW imo.

    3. charlie1X
      • 7 Years

      Maybe review Ota choice after next gwk

  2. Essential

    VVD Wickham -> Rico Wilson -4

    Yay or nay?

    1. britzdubb
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      nay

    2. charlie1X
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      I'd only take that kind of hit involving a decent defender if I was planning on capping the option

  3. Gunner Boy
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 28 days ago

    Captain?

    A- Aguero
    B- Abraham
    C- Willson

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      B

    2. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 28 days ago

      I’m going B but if I owned Wilson, I’d have your tough decision on B or C. Stick it on Abraham for next 5 days then move it to Wilson for 5 days, then pick who it looked best on.

    3. Slitherene

      yeah

  5. The Units
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 28 days ago

    Some IB thinking and tinkering! What are thoughts on these moves.....

    Kun to Wesley
    Matip to Dunk
    Guendouzi to Mane

    Current team:
    Pope / (Button)
    Matip* / TAA / Lundstram / Pieters / (Kelly)
    Salah / KDB* / Mount / (Guendouzi) / (Cantwell)
    Kun / Pukki / Tammy

    1. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Not sure tbh. Wesley horrible fixtures after brighton + 2 pool attackers isnt necessary. Like the dunk pick tho

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 28 days ago

        I am trying to change it up a bit. Mane could be Sterling?

  6. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    KDB dropping from 43% to 31% is fantastic news for those that kept him

    1. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 28 days ago

      And we hope he keeps falling to sub 30

      1. Nigel Knows
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 28 days ago

        It reminds me if the good old days, way back in GW1

        1. Nigel Knows
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 28 days ago

          Of

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Yep agree

    3. Dacra
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Im hoping he's still injured! :S

    4. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      There have also been many hits when removing him and more to come when he's brought back.

    5. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Only if he plays this GW. If not, waste of 10M for 2 GWs is huge imo..

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 28 days ago

        a waste only if the possible replacements do well... a lot went Mahrez (I know only 1 game gone if 2)

    6. charlie1X
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Martial all over again. we should get a rule of "any under-priced asset won't fall as quickly all rights of the management reserved" Simply unfair to randomly change drop rates.

      1. Nigel Knows
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 28 days ago

        Why’s it unfair?

  7. britzdubb

    any thoughts?

    Ryan
    Vvd otamendi Soyuncu
    Mane KdB Yarmolenko Hudson-Odoi
    Aguero Auba King

    Button Tomori Lund Dendoncker

  8. Coys96

    Pope
    Trent Zinchenko Soyuncu Lundstram
    Sterling Son Mount
    Aguero Haller Pukki

    Button Cantwell Dendoncker Kelly

    Best moves? Have 2FTs
    1. Pukki + Dendoncker -> CWilson + CHO
    2. Pukki -> Wilson
    3. Pukki, Dendoncker + Zinchenko -> Wilson, Maddison + Boly (-4)
    4. Pukki + Haller -> CWilson + Vardy
    5. Pukki + Haller -> CWilson + Abraham

    1. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I really like 3.

    2. britzdubb
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      1

      you can get Boly free week after as your defence is ok

  9. Mike132
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 28 days ago

    Ryan Button
    TAA Matip Digne Otamendi Lundstram
    Salah Sterling KDB Mount Saka
    Abraham Pukki Greenwood

    Any early suggestions for 2 FT and 0.1 itb? Thank you

    1. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Matip + Pukki -> CWilson + Boly/Dunk

  10. Bucket Man

    Heaton expected to be fit. Can save the WC now? 1FT 0.3ITB
    Heaton*
    Robertson, Tomori, Lundstram
    Salah*, Sterling, KDB*, Mount
    Abraham, Haller, Pukki
    Cantwell, Rico, Cathcart

    1. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Save for a few more weeks. Youre looking very good if all fit

      1. Bucket Man
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 28 days ago

        Thanks. That's the problem, Hopefully two of them are OK at least. Don't really want to use a FT on a GK either but that situation looks more promising.

        1. Coys96
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 28 days ago

          I think they'll all be ok tbh. At least Heaton being injured gives you a good opportunity to bring Pope in

          1. Bucket Man
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 28 days ago

            Not the best game for it though, and would like rid of Cathcart, not had a bad start though and rank quite good. Thank you.

        9.5M was criminally underpriced. 2G 9A in 8 games shows that.

      Planning to do Pukki -> Wilson already but what else do I do:

      1. Dendoncker -> CHO
      2. Zinchenko -> Boly/Dunk.
      3. Dendoncker + Zinc -> Boly/Dunk + Maddison (-4)
      4. Haller -> Abraham
      5. Haller -> Vardy
      6. Haller + Dendoncker -> Abraham + CHO (-4).

      I'm thinking 1 or 3 as not sure I want to lose Haller yet. Thoughts appreciated 🙂

      Everyone needs to see the Utd red 4 on every fixture as a Green 2

      rate my wildcard team...

      pope button
      taa, soy, rico, lund, kelly
      sterling, kdb, mount, maddison, dendoncker
      aguero, wilson, abraham

      not sure on whether having auba instead of aguero?
      plan is to get mane in few games for one of sterling or aguero/auba

        Brilliant. 8/10. Would be a bit worried about the defence but that midfield and attack will get you up the ranks

          i can have otamendi instead of kelly if i downgrade aguero to auba?

      2. Wardinator
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 28 days ago

        Go Auba over Aguero for sure as you already have KDB and Sterling, and have a plan to bring in Salah

        Other than that i like it

      Wonder if this Cloeen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy nonsense will affect Jamie's head going into the Burnley game. Might go with Wilson now.

        I'd be surprised and disappointed if it did.

        I think Brendan will allow Vardy a month or two off to recover

      Salah or Mane for upcoming fixtures? Price isn't the issue in my team right now

      1. BigDaveSaves
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 28 days ago

        I would still say it's a coin toss. I'm a Mane owner but looking to double on both when fixtures turn.

    19. simong1

      A or B?

      A) Soyuncu, Maddison & Wilson
      B) Pereirra, Cantwell & Vardy

          Rooney suggesting Vardy has been selling story’s to the press.

          Coleen has publicly accused Rebekah Vardy of selling personal stories about Coleen, to the press. She set a trap over the last few months and caught Rebekah out.

        3. Konstaapeli

          Colleen Rooney exposed Rebekah Vardy for leaking personal stuff to papers. Rebekah say's her instagram was hacked.

            I love the bit where Rebekah says that she could have changed her password if Coleen had come to her first
