GW36 Scout Selection: Mane joins captain Salah

The Scout 26 Apr 2019

Liverpool midfielders are the first two names in The Scout's FPL line-up for Gameweek 36

A home encounter with Huddersfield Town raises the potential of Sadio Mane (£10.1m) and Mohamed Salah (£13.2m) in Gameweek 36 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Liverpool pair both earn a place in The Scout’s best GW36 XI as Jurgen Klopp's side look to return to the top of the table on Friday evening.

Mane has been in outstanding form, with 10 goals and an assist in his last 13 appearances.

The Senegal international is the most-bought player in the Gameweek, with more than 101,000 new owners. 

Salah has become more prolific in recent matches, with a goal or an assist in each of the last four Gameweeks.

The Egyptian has also impressed against the Terriers, scoring in each of their last two meetings.

That earns Salah the captain's armband, with Mane the vice-captain in a 3-5-2 formation ahead of the early FPL deadline of 19:00 BST Friday 26 April.

Sergio Rico (FUL) £4.4m

The Fulham goalkeeper has two clean sheets and 14 FPL points in the last two Gameweeks. Rico’s visitors, Cardiff City, have scored just 11 away goals in 17 matches.

Shane Duffy (BHA) £4.8m

The Brighton & Hove Albion centre-back has scored five goals this season, more than any other defender. Duffy is at home to Newcastle United, who have conceded the second-most chances from set-pieces this season.

Virgil van Dijk (LIV) £6.7m

The Dutchman can deliver big points at both ends of the pitch at home to Huddersfield. Van Dijk has two goals, an assist and two clean sheets in his last four Anfield matches.

Aymeric Laporte (MCI) £6.2m

Manchester City’s defender has been in outstanding form ahead of his trip to Burnley. Laporte has 35 points in five appearances since returning from injury in Gameweek 32, more than any team-mate.

Gerard Deulofeu (WAT) £5.7m

The Watford midfielder has scored four goals in his last four matches in all competitions. That includes a brace against his weekend visitors, Wolverhampton Wanderers, in the Hornets’ FA Cup semi-final win.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £13.2m

Salah has been Liverpool's main goal threat at Anfield this season. At home, his totals of 62 shots and 27 shots on target rank among the top three players in FPL.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £8.9m

The Tottenham Hotspur winger, who often plays as a striker, has a fine record against visitors West Ham United. Son has three goals and two assists their last three meetings across all competitions.

Sadio Mane (LIV) £10.1m

Mane has produced 38 FPL points in his last four appearances at Anfield, more than any team-mate.

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £11.6m

Man City’s winger will be among the top captaincy contenders for his trip to Burnley. Sterling has two goals, an assist and 20 FPL points in his last two away matches.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (FUL) £6.3m

The Fulham striker has stepped up his goal threat under Scott Parker's management. Mitrovic’s total of 16 shots inside the penalty area in his last four matches is more than any other player.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) £5.4m

A trip to Crystal Palace hands the Everton forward the chance to continue his fine run of form. Calvert-Lewin has a goal or an assist in five of the last eight Gameweeks.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): Having three Liverpool players is important. Salah and Mane are both chasing the Golden Boot! I prefer their full-backs but Van Dijk is more guaranteed of a start. Don’t overlook Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) at home to a leaky Arsenal defence.

Nick and Tom (@WGTA_FPL): An interesting set of players reflecting the difference between picking a squad for the season and selecting a one-week team. I fancy Mitrovic to go on a run for these final three Gameweeks; he is dominating the striker data!

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): I'm surprised at Van Dijk over Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.6m), given how advanced the latter is likely to be for most of the match.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): I’m pleased to see Calvert-Lewin. He has been in fantastic form for Everton and could be a really nice differential. While I understand the Salah and Mane picks, less popular Liverpool players such as Roberto Firmino (£9.4m) and even James Milner (£5.6m) could give Fantasy managers a points boost in their mini-leagues.
