FPL Show: Don't lose faith in Salah

14 Sep 2018

Expert Az Phillips backs Liverpool star for resurgence in Fantasy as managers swap him for Eden Hazard

Are managers losing faith in Fantasy Premier League's record points-scorer Mohamed Salah (£13.0m)?

Despite two goals in the first four matches for Liverpool, Salah is the third-most sold player in ahead of Gameweek 5.

Heading into Gameweek 5, more than 218,000 managers have moved out the Egyptian, half swapping him for Eden Hazard (£10.7m).

Liverpool have a testing run of fixtures, facing Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester City in three of the next four Gameweeks, but FPL expert Az Phillips thinks Salah can hit the form that brought 303 points last season. 

"I can see the logic, because people are moving to Hazard mostly," Phillips says on the latest FPL Show. "Hazard's got Cardiff City at home next, he's in good form.

"Salah hasn't set the world alight and you would want to captain him week-in, week-out, but only in the short term.

"There's going to be a resurgence with him."
