The top two of Liverpool’s dynamic trio, Sadio Mane (£11.5m) and Mo Salah
(£12.5m) have been priced just £1.0m apart this season – Mane coming in as the cheaper option. They shared last season’s golden boot after netting 22 goals apiece, while it was Salah who edged Mane in the assists category. Really the decision here rests with whom you trust more over a full season. While Mane had a stellar campaign last season, Salah actually scored ten fewer goals and 44 fewer points than the 2017-18 season and still comfortably outscored him. The Egyptian has proved that his FPL point-scoring prowess is no one hit wonder, and for that reason he is worth the extra £1.0m for his services.
Verdict: Mo Salah
