From Gameweek 25 of last season onwards, Sadio Mane (£12.1m) has outscored Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) in Fantasy Premier League by 190 points to 152.
The main difference appears to be explosiveness: both players have blanked in ten of their 25 starts over this period but the Senegal international has recorded three times as many double-digit hauls (nine v three).
We discussed the various arguments in the Mane v Salah debate upon the release of the FPL price list in the summer, with one consideration being the Egyptian’s positional move from the central striker of a 4-2-3-1 to his usual right-wing role in a 4-3-3.
Another factor was Liverpool’s use of crosses – and it’s this particular tactical shift that we’ll analyse in the Members article below.
