GW26 Differentials: Sadio Mane

The Scout on why winger is worth his price tag for Liverpool’s two home matches

The Scout is tipping four low-owned players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek in Fantasy Premier League. 

Sadio Mane (LIV) £11.7m

The winger can be found in just 2.4 per cent of squads for Liverpool’s pair of Double Gameweek 26 home matches against Norwich City and Leeds United ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 GMT deadline.

Mane has mainly been overlooked due to the popularity of team-mates Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) and Diogo Jota (£8.5m), who are owned by 51.2 and 39.5 per cent respectively.

However, the Senegalese’s output at Anfield suggests he could be a better option than Jota, who is now an injury doubt for the weekend.

At home, Mane has been involved in eight goals, scoring five and assisting a further three.

Although Jota has scored seven goals at Anfield, he has yet to supply a single assist.


Norwich and Leeds, meanwhile, have been among the weakest sides defensively on their travels this term.

Indeed, they are among the three teams who have conceded the most goals away from home, with 25 and 29 respectively.

Mane’s potential for goals and assists makes him a tempting double-up option alongside Salah, particularly for managers playing their Free Hit chip. Liverpool are without a fixture in Gameweek 27.
