The Scout says Liverpool duo can take advantage of an Everton team who have conceded four home goals

A Merseyside derby at Everton looks promising for the prospects of Mohamed Salah (£12.2m) and Sadio Mane (£11.9m) in Gameweek 5 of Fantasy Premier League.

Although Carlo Ancelotti's Premier League leaders have won all four matches this season, they have struggled defensively at home.

Everton conceded two goals against both West Bromwich Albion and Brighton & Hove Albion at Goodison Park.

Liverpool's Salah has already produced double-digits twice in the first four Gameweeks, claiming 20 points against Leeds United and a 13-point haul at Aston Villa last time out.

Salah's hat-trick against Leeds

The underlying numbers highlight his strong start to the new season.

Salah's 19 shots, 15 shots inside the box and 14 chances created are all league-leading totals. 

Mane, meanwhile, has returned to training following illness.

He produced 16 points in his last away appearance, scoring twice against Chelsea.

Everton duo an option

Everton pair Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) and James Rodriguez (£7.8m) have the form to take advantage of a Liverpool defence who conceded seven goals at Villa Park.

Calvert-Lewin has found the net in all four Gameweeks, scoring a total of six goals.

Rodriguez has been particularly reliable at home, producing hauls of 12 and 18 points in his first two matches at Goodison Park.

All eyes on Sterling

Elsewhere, with Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) ruled out through injury, Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) is the standout option from the Manchester City attack when they host Arsenal.

Sterling netted in both meetings with the Gunners last season.
