Midweek hat-trick suggests Liverpool star can maintain strong home record against Man City

Mohamed Salah’s (£12.7m) return to form in midweek suggests he could outscore Erling Haaland (£12.2m) in their head-to-head in Gameweek 11 of Fantasy Premier League.

TV Info

The Egyptian scored a hat-trick as a substitute in Liverpool’s 7-1 win over Rangers in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

Salah has a reliable record against Manchester City, averaging 8.4 points per home meeting. He has four goals, two assists and only one blank in those five outings.  


Nonetheless, Haaland’s incredible start to his Man City career means he will again be the most-selected captain in Fantasy.

A record-breaking 7.1 million managers handed the Norwegian the armband in the last Gameweek.

Haaland has averaged 11.3 points per match in 2022/23 Fantasy, producing attacking returns in all nine of his appearances.

It is worth noting, though, that he has only been the top-scoring player in two of the nine Gameweeks so far.

His team-mate Phil Foden (£8.2m) can also deliver a huge haul at Anfield.

The midfielder has blanked just once in Man City’s last six matches, producing five goals, three assists and 48 points. 

Back Spurs stars at home?

Elsewhere, Tottenham Hotspur pair Harry Kane (11.4m) and Son Heung-min (£11.7m) host an Everton side who are without an away clean sheet this season.

Kane has averaged 7.6 points per match since Gameweek 2, while Son has scored five of Spurs’ nine goals in their last two home matches across all competitions. 

Midfield differentials

Midfield trio James Maddison (£8.3m), Jarrod Bowen (£8.2m) and Leandro Trossard (£6.8m) also have the potential for huge hauls. 

Leicester City’s Maddison has averaged 7.8 points per home match this season ahead of a visit from Crystal Palace.

Bowen travels to Southampton on the back of two goals, an assist and 21 points in West Ham United’s last two encounters.

Lastly, Trossard boasts strong away form for Brighton & Hove Albion’s trip to Brentford, scoring a hat-trick in a 3-3 draw at Liverpool in his last road trip.
