FPL Show: Time to ditch Salah for Mane?

18 Oct 2019

Expert Lee Bonfield tempted to swap Liverpool stars but Sam Bonfield sees room for both in Fantasy teams

He's been the top-scoring Fantasy Premier League player for the last two seasons, but is it time for more than two million managers to sell Mohamed Salah (£12.5m)? 

Fantasy expert Lee Bonfield says the form of Salah's team-mate, Sadio Mane (£11.7m), makes the straight Liverpool swap a much easier decision than in previous weeks.

"I've made the cardinal sin of transferring out Mane for Salah," Bonfield says in the latest episode of the FPL Show. "The way that Mane's playing, he looks so deadly, so dangerous. 

"He's been far more creative. That was something we levelled at him last season.

"OK, he's good for goals but not so creative. Well, he's matching Salah on the creativity stats, too."

Bonfield's wife, Sam, made the same switch last season but is not doing so this time around.

With Salah's 55 points only two behind Mane, she believes FPL managers should find room for both players ahead of a great run of fixtures. 

"From Gameweek 13 the two of them together looks like a great idea," she says. "The double Liverpool attack looks really promising."
