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?

      At least some of us that didn’t know, at least know now Jamie’s wife is pregnant, so if someone can update up when she is due, so we can monitor if Jamie will miss any matches?

      Brave or visionnary. No Leicester attacker, no Mount, no Abraham, no TAA, no Robertson. I'm not courageous enough to do that.

    rarely do this but lost!

    Heaton
    TAA, Tomori, Lundstram
    Salah, KDB, Dilva, Lanzini
    Kane, Wilson, Pukki

    (Woodman, Diop, Guendouzi, Kelly)

    Kane is getting the armband & the WAT game... then might be out the door.

    Thinking Dilva to Maddison & bank 1 FT

      Yeah, good move. Dilva had a massive spat with Pep apparently...

    Would you do Salah / Barnes / Pukki --> Maddison / Auba / C.Wilson for -4pts

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      it's a coin toss call really. Salah can do well easily against the "hard" fixtures

      if you look at it the other way... you wouldn't switch out Mad/Auba/Wilson to the other 3... so maybe do it

    2. Offs!de
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I would do it

        Two FT's, should sell Kane, but can't bring myself to do it pre-Watford. Might do James>CHO as well and bank another 0.2m. Or wait a week and get Vardy and Maddison after Watford...

            No, it could be decision that ruins your season! I might go all-in and captain.

        Possibly, need to bank max spare cash though. CHO and Dendoncker gives me 0.7m in my Pukki pot.

    Thoughts on the below WC? Have tripled up on Chelsea attack!

    Pope, Button
    TAA, Soyuncu, Lundstram, Rico, Kelly
    Mane, KDB, CHO, Mount, Maddison
    Auba, Wilson, Abraham

    1. kennethrhcp

      who do you bench from the front 8?

      1. Nigel Knows
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        2-5-3 formation would be great

          Miss AOA??

            Rooney?

      2. simong1
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        That's the issue I'm having. Depends on the fixtures but prob CHO for the moment. Bad WC considering I'll always have to bench someone from the front 8?

        1. kennethrhcp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          5.9 for a bench player seems a bit much? may downgrade him & use funds at the back?

      3. The Man Pastore
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Has to be CHO

    2. charlie1X
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Assuming you play all your big hitters, you seem to have a very difficult choice of 7th attacker each week

  11. Nigel Knows
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Rico, Lundstram and Kelly (basically BOU, SHU, CPL) rotate nicely for next while as 3rd defender in 3-4-3 or 3-5-2

    One always has a favourable game. Another might even occasionally make 1st sub

    2. charlie1X

      Over the next 3 Aguero. Rested next game then 2 good homes.

      d but having to start cantwell every week when lacas back is not good

  16. TAT
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Is a CHO/Mount/Abraham triple-up too much – or is it better to tap into the Leicester midfield and do Maddison/Mount/Abraham?

    1. mikess
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Too much I think

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Leaning towards Madders over CHO, but the latter is definitely an interesting option.

    2. Wardinator
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Defo the second option

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Leaning towards going with Madders over CHO, but CHO is definitely a tempting option.

        1. Wardinator
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Honestly it’s an easy win for Maddy here. His ownership will be double by Xmas

          1. TAT
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            You might be right about that!

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      would be fine if CHO was nailed which remains to be seen

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Good point. Would think he would be – at least eventually.

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 23 days ago

          tomori at 4.5 a more reliable option right now on the triple up

          1. TAT
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Tomori is definitely an option too. Looking more at Dunk than him though, tbh (depending on GK pick on WC).

    4. Ason Willa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      No, that's what I've done on my WC. I got rid of Tomori to make it happen. I'm monitoring Maddison for Mahrez but currently have a City triple up too: Raz, Mahrez and KdB

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Interesting. I'm going a bit back and forth between the premium assets as well on WC, and players like CHO might be important options in making everything add up funds wise.

        5.9 for CHO and 7.1 for Maddison is definitely a jump in price.

        1. Ason Willa
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Maddison is safer but I feel like CHO will outscore him if he nails down that spot. I have an excellent bench, so if you go this route, make sure you can handle rotation.

          1. TAT
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Good point – a bench will be very important with CHO over Maddison. Luckily that price gap between those two might help funding that bench somewhat.

  17. rdpx
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    What has changed from the way MCI played the first game, where Sterling got 3 goals, to the games since where he's getting none or one?

    1. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Aguero starting?

      1. rdpx
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Is it that simple?

        Sounds like if you only wanted one of them then Kun is the sensible choice?

        1. Nigel Knows
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Kun has come off bench in two away games and got points (goal WHam and assist Evert) but Starts all big games at Etihad when fit.
          So I’d go Sterling later but Aguero for now as GW10&11 look two tasty home games at Etihad and Sterling’s England mins should be monitored as look at October 2018, March and September 2019 as evidence that he drops out soon after (1-2 games after) stack of England mins.

    2. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Sterling away when Aguero doesn’t start: 20 & 7 Points (average 13.5pts)
      Score away when no KDB 2 pts.

      Summary:
      Sterling only has one blank when KDB does start (the other two Blanks came when KDB didn’t start)
      Sterling racks up points when Aguero doesn’t start.

      Sterling tends to get rested 1 or 2 games after internationals (when playing 180 mins for England) - sitting on bench in case needed. Never has as they’ve romped to victories. So 1st sub kicks in.
      Jesus tends to start away when fully fit. He wasn’t fully fit v Norwich but tends to start in away matches when he is 100% and Sterling racks up points, especially if KDB is about.
      Kun is your home man and Sterling is your away man.

        Are u advising rotate 12m players??? Lolol
        Who to pick is still the question.
        I see now more options upfront than in mid, therefore sterling is better because kun is fighting for tighter place

          Dropping Sterling also frees up funds for me to do Pukki to Auba...

            I just Pukki to Auba and Salah to Mount.

            Will get shot of Son soon to get Mané or Salah back by GW13

            I've worked my stats and dont believe auba will haul vs shff...and then Sterling has Villa and Southampton

            1. Nigel Knows
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 23 days ago

              Auba: Sheff Utd(a), Palace(h) and wolves (h)
              Sterling: Palace (a), Villa (h) and Southampton (h)

              So on paper City have better fixtures (just) but Auba has been great source of points in FPL.

              Maybe for one move this chap should go Aguero to Auba!?!?

      3. rdpx
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        I've got Sterling, KDB and Kun...

        I think funds are calling for Auba though and your very helpful insight has me leaning ever further toward dropping RS.

        1. Nigel Knows
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 23 days ago

          RS is a wonderful asset that people lose patience with. His ceiling can each 20 more than Aguero with extra goal points and clean sheet points but I’m gonna keep Triple A frontline Auba, Aguero and Abraham for a few weeks then will move one to Vardy or cheaper when I bring Mane/Salah or both into the fray. Might even consider RS by then.

      4. Nigel Knows
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Points sample is 2 months - so maybe agree too small.
        International analysis is over 12 months and last 3 IBs so that’s sensible data
        Aguero starting at Etihad when fit in CL and PL is factual over past 9 months covering 15 matches in both comps.
        Sterling is recommendation for run of away games but Aguero should Be considered for home matches. Both good calls but review of past 2, 9 or 12 months should not be ruled out for future predictions

    What to do ? (2FT, 0.5TIB)

    Ryan (Button)
    Otamendi, TAA, VVD Digne Lundstram
    Mount Salah, Sterling Cantwell Dendocker
    Abraham Haller, Pukki

    1. mikess
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I'd try upgrade Cantwell by maybe ditching VVD or Digne to Rico or Kelly

    Would you rather have Sterling or Aguero?

    1. charlie1X
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      On the basis of the last 6 gwks and the next 3 fixtures. Kun and it isn't close. Rested for next game then 2 easy home games. scored twice as many points as Sterling over the last 6 gwks.
      8ppg v 4ppg

      1. charlie1X
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        sterling actually 4.66ppg to be precise

    Should FPL managers own Salah or Mane with upcoming fixtures. Is this a serious question? Come on guys. Fixtures are irrelevant when it comes to Liverpool. They are so much better than the rest of the league barring City. Their points potential is the same regardless of who they play. In fact you could argue that it's even higher against the better teams who don't park the bus. For some reason many were viewing the Arsenal game as a difficult fixture for Liverpool. It was no surprise to me that they won the game comfortably. Even against City with that mess of a defence now, I expect Liverpool to score at least 2. I have Mane in my team and he won't be going anywhere all season.

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      fixtures aren’t irrelevant to anyone

    2. Typo
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      100% agree. I dont understand the chatting about getting rid of Mane. In the form of his life, been putting balls awa left and right all of 2019.

      its a bit harder with Salah, but unless you have very good use of the money you get I would not remove him either. Like there are no big hitters that are that pressing?

      Only Auba maybe, but he is a 6-8 point steady hero, with Salah/Mane 12+ points in a match is very possible.

    3. charlie1X
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Salah too expensive for difficult fixtures as you wont want to cal him. Mane on form an easy hold

      I'm on that WC team but with Wilson for Vardy and Pereira for Söyüncü.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        I have Pereira at the minute (incase he rises!). Not sure he is worth the 1.4m over Soy. Why you leaning that way?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Soy doesn't seem to have much goal threat and Ricardo has done pretty well already in tough fixtures. Not much in it really.

          1. rjcv177
            • 4 Years

            Not trying to compare them...but hom many more chances created has TAA over him (without set pieces)?

    2. charlie1X
      • 7 Years

      KDB should be on 3rd drop. God knows how they do these things. same happened with Martial and he did eventually multi-drop but he was injured for a month

  23. Make America Greta Again

    Cantwell to Mount or CHO for -4?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA

      Mount is a good long term move

        Don't know who will fire at what time. So just covered 6 of them and take whatever comes from rest of them. Never tried this before but as said above it's the best time considering my poor history of this game

  25. Virgil Hilts

    Current line up

    Pope (Button)

    Alexander-Arnold, Lundstraam, Rico, Kelly, Janmaat

    Mane, Sterling, Salah, De Bruyne, Nakamba

    Abraham, Wesley, Connolly

    Apart from the obvious comments about too much spent in midfield at expense of attack and defence, any other advice?

    If you would absolutely need to have a defender from Arsenal, who would it be? Somehow this looks like a trick question even to me..

    1. jomikijiq
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Sokratis

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        I was about to add that it can't be Sokratis, I think he's about the worst..

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          He has similar goal threat to Luiz and is 0.8 cheaper. Wouldn't go near Tierney/Bellerin until they start a few games in a row, but even then they will probably be rotated sometimes.
