GW15 Kings to Watch: Sadio Mane

The Scout 23 Dec 2020

The Scout says managers should back Liverpool star who has been outshooting Mohamed Salah

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 15 of Fantasy Premier League.

Sadio Mane (LIV) £11.9m

A home meeting with West Bromwich Albion gives the Liverpool winger the chance to continue his improving form.

Mane scored his first goal since Gameweek 5 in last weekend's 7-0 win at Crystal Palace.

He also supplied an assist in that match to record a nine-point haul, his best score since Gameweek 2.

Mane's goal v Crystal Palace

Although he has been overshadowed by team-mate Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) in Fantasy this season, the underlying statistics suggest Mane has boasted a superior goal threat in recent matches.

His totals of 13 shots and 12 shots in the box over the last four Gameweeks are both team-leading totals for Liverpool.

By comparison, Salah has had 12 shots, seven of which have been in the box.

Mane’s numbers also fare well when assessed against his displays over Gameweeks 1-10.

His minutes per shot have slightly improved from 27.2 to 25.2, while his shots in the box are up from 2.2 to 3.0 per appearance.

Vulnerable opponents

West Brom’s defensive record further boosts the appeal of Liverpool's key attackers.

The Baggies have conceded 224 shots, 150 shots in the box and 88 shots on target, all of which are the highest totals in the league.

They also struggled in their first match under Sam Allardyce in the previous Gameweek, suffering a 3-0 home defeat to Aston Villa.

Mane can seize upon those weaknesses and reward his 7.6 per cent ownership with more goals on Sunday.

Remember the Gameweek 15 deadline is at 11:00 GMT on Saturday 26 December.
