Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will both set Fantasy Premier League managers back £12.0m in 2020/21.
The Liverpool midfielders are the joint-most-expensive assets in the game so far and it’s the first time the pair have been available at exactly the same price since they moved to Merseyside.
The price gap between the two players was a whopping £3.5m at the start of 2018/19, narrowing to one million last year.
So is the decision a complete no-brainer for Fantasy managers given that the Liverpool duo now cost the same?
Salah has outscored Mane for FPL points in each of the three seasons they have played together, while the Egyptian also has penalty-taking duties in his locker.
Owning both of these premium midfield options isn’t impossible but, given the price rises elsewhere for the likes of Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m) and Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m), it may be a case of one or the other.
