In Sunday’s top-of-the-table clash between Liverpool and Man City, there is plenty on the line from a Fantasy perspective with owners faced with so many tough decisions in their own team selection. In terms of the goalkeepers, Ederson (£6.1m) currently features in 21.8% of teams compared to Alisson (£5.9m), who is owned by just 7.3%, but who is the better play on Sunday?
Liverpool have home advantage and that will surely stand for something but owners of their defensive assets continue to be frustrated at the lack of clean sheets with just two registered across the 11 gameweeks so far. City on the other hand look to be improving defensively with three clean sheets in their last six and five over the course of the season now. In what should be an attacking game, both keepers have a chance to register a good number of saves, but this may be less high-scoring than many people anticipate. Despite being away from home, Ederson offers the greater upside here in City’s improving defence.
