Despite being the top-scoring player in Fantasy Premier League this season, a drop in form for Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) has some managers weighing up whether to sell the Liverpool star.

With only one goal in his last seven matches all competitions, the Egyptian is currently the fourth most-sold player this Gameweek ahead of Friday’s 18:30 BST deadline.

Fantasy expert Sam Bonfield included Salah in her Gameweek 31 Wildcard squad at the expense of Son Heung-min (£10.9m), but is now questioning that decision.

"Pre-Africa Cup of Nations he was achieving 8.85 points per match on average in the Premier League, but since he's come back from AFCON it is down to six," says Sam in the latest episode of the FPL Show.

"That is 0.9 less than Son is achieving, which means we could save a lot of money and have Son, who has got nice fixtures, and then invest elsewhere across the team."

Sam's husband Lee, the other half of the @FPLFamily, is keeping faith in Salah, pointing out that the winger's underlying statistics have actually improved over recent weeks.

"His non-penalty Expected Goals per game since returning from AFCON has risen to 0.97, from 0.73 before AFCON," he explains.

"He's still doing all the things that he was doing earlier in the season, if not better, so I'm expecting an upturn in form."
