FPL Show: Captain Mane over Vardy

22 Nov 2019

Liverpool star is not only facing his favourite team but Crystal Palace are also conceding a lot of big chances, says Fantasy expert Lee Bonfield

He's the hottest player in the game right now but Fantasy Premier League managers planning to captain Jamie Vardy (£9.6m) should think twice and instead select Sadio Mane (£12.1m), according to an expert on the latest FPL Show.

Vardy has six goals and two assists in the last four matches and thousands of managers, including FPL expert Sam Bonfield, are set to give him the armband at Brighton & Hove Albion in Gameweek 13.

But while Sam says Vardy's form "cannot be overlooked", her husband Lee believes Mane will outdo the Leicester City striker when he travels to a Crystal Palace side against whom the Senegalese has scored seven times in the past.

"I think Brighton are good at home and while Palace looked good at the start of the season, they've just started to concede a lot of big chances," he says.

"Their expected goals conceded is quite high for the last two or three games and they're susceptible to headed goals from set-pieces."
