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?

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

      Subs: Button, Cantwell, Lunds, Pieters

        9 days, 18 hours ago

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

      3. charlie1X

        Maybe review Ota choice after next gwk

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

      Captain?

      A- Aguero
      B- Abraham
      C- Willson

      1. The Units

      2. Nigel Knows
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 18 hours 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.

      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

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

        1. The Units
          • 9 Years
          9 days, 18 hours ago

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

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

      1. Nigel Knows
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 18 hours ago

        And we hope he keeps falling to sub 30

        1. Nigel Knows
          • 1 Year

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

          1. Nigel Knows
            • 1 Year
            9 days, 18 hours ago

            Of

      2. The Units
        • 9 Years
        9 days, 18 hours ago

        Yep agree

      3. Dacra
        • 5 Years
        9 days, 18 hours ago

        Im hoping he's still injured! :S

      4. Konstaapeli
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 18 hours 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
        • 7 Years
        9 days, 18 hours 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
          9 days, 17 hours ago

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

      6. charlie1X
        • 6 Years
        9 days, 14 hours 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
          9 days, 14 hours ago

          Why’s it unfair?

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

        1. Bucket Man
          • 1 Year
          9 days, 18 hours 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. The Pope
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            9 days, 18 hours 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
              9 days, 18 hours 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.

          he should be on 3rd drop. Seems unfit if some are wise to these special cases.

        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 🙂

        RMWCT please.

        Pope - McGovern
        TAA - Soyuncu - Tomori - Rico - Reid
        Mane - KDB - Mount - Maddison - xxx
        Auba - Vardy - Abraham

        Would also need a 4.5m midfielder to finish this, just not sure who to go with.

          Going back to the articles I'm guessing. But that will take ages

        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
          • 4 Years
          9 days, 17 hours 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 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
          • 4 Years
          9 days, 17 hours ago

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

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

            It wasn’t me, I was hacked responds Vardy

            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
